SL government fails to help renovation of war destructed Saiva temples

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 26 October 2010, 06:22 GMT]
“Sri Lanka government has done nothing to help to renovate the places of worship of Tamil people destroyed during tsunami and war in the North and East,” Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Batticaloa parliamentarian Pon. Selvarasa said speaking at an event in Thaazhangkudaa Sri Periyathampiraan temple in Batticaloa district. “Only five percent of the 500,000 rupees allocated by SL government to each parliamentarian under the annual budget could be spent on renovating temples. The requests by temple administrators to renovate their temples cannot be fulfilled by us completely,” Selvarasa said.

“More than 1500 temples had been damaged in the war in the North and East and the SL government instead of assisting to help renovation is erecting many new Buddhist temples in places where the Saiva temples had been located,” he further said.

A special scheme should be devised for the renovation of all Saiva temples in the North and East, he said.
