NP Governor retracts sudden transfer of Ki値inochchi Director of Education

[TamilNet, Friday, 29 October 2010, 05:59 GMT]
The education officials and principals of schools in Ki値inochchi district abstained from duties Wednesday in protest against the sudden transfer order to K. Kurukularajah, Zonal Director of Education in Ki値inochchi, by Northern Province Governor, Major. Gen. G. A. Chandarasiri. The governor, however, said that the transfer order has been immediately cancelled in a meeting he convened in Vavuniyaa Thursday, sources in Vavuniyaa said. The governor had also claimed that he had nothing to do with the sudden transfer order to K. Kurukularaja. Meanwhile, the protestors in Ki値inochchi said that Chandrasiri acts more like a military commander in performing his duties than as the governor of Northern Province. He had been the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Commander of Jaffna before being appointed as governor. Tamil National Alliance (TNA) too had joined in the Wednesday protest.

The governor had also said that Kurukularajah will be allowed to serve in his post in Ki'linochch until retirement.

Director K. Kurukularajah had served long in Vanni even during the war on Vanni and has only eight months to go on retirement.

Kurukularajah had been suddenly transferred by the Governor who was annoyed that director had delayed the construction of a school building in Ki値inochchi district, the protestors said.

Meanwhile, M. Theiventhiran, an officer in Ki値inochchi Education Office, who had lost his wife and only child in the war, has also been suddenly transferred to Trincomalee.

The Agricultural Extension Officer in Ki値inochchi Ms. Seethaladchumi Ananatharajah is suspended from her post too, sources in Ki値inochchi said.
