Jaffna District Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Commander Major Gen. Mahintha Kathurusinghe said that the carelessness of police authorities in the peninsula is responsible for the present deterioration of law and order while informing the local media Saturday that according to President Mahintha Rajapakse’s order SLA will not interfere in civil administration in the peninsula anymore, media sources in Jaffna said. The SLA Jaffna Commander has also invited the editors of local dailies for a meeting Sunday at SLA 512 Division Head Quarters in Jaffna Gnanam Hotel. Meanwhile, a newly formed party called ‘Makka’l Sakthi’ (People’s Power) is to stage a protest march Sunday against the deterioration of law and order in Jaffna peninsula, the sources informed.

President Mahintha Rajapakse’s brother and Defence Secretary Gothabaya Rajapakse had visited Jaffna recently and the Jaffna SLA Commander is expected to convey the instructions of the Defence Secretary in the Sunday meeting, the sources said.

Meanwhile, some defeated independent contestants in the recent parliamentary election are said to have formed the Makka’l Sakthi which is to stage the protest march Sunday.
