SL government neglects war-ravaged Vanni

[TamilNet, Thursday, 30 September 2010, 06:05 GMT]
Sri Lanka government has not allocated sufficient funds for the renovation and rebuilding of schools and other government department offices which had been either badly damaged or totally destroyed during its war on Vanni, officials of Northern Province Education Ministry and Ki’linochchi Government Secretariat said. Basic facilities are not made available for the government employees and teachers from other areas who have returned to work in Vanni mainland and they attempt to get transferred out of Vanni. Our time is spent mainly in receiving the numerous SL government ministers and their officials claiming to rehabilitate Vanni but it will take more than a year to restore working standards, an official in one of the District Secretariats, said. SL government stops with its publicity of developing Vanni without allocating the required funds for development, he added.

The schools in the districts of Mullaiththeevu and Ki’linochchi and other areas in Vanni mainland have been totally destroyed or badly damaged during the war.

The students have to attend classes under trees sitting on the ground near their schools as the damaged school buildings had not been renovated or any new building constructed.

The government employees and teachers who have come to Vanni to work in their offices and schools which had begun gradually to function in Ki’linochchi and Mullaiththeevu districts have no place to stay or any basic facilities.

They find hard to find places to stay as most of the houses in the above districts have been completely destroyed during war.
