EPDP controlled PS building damaged

[TamilNet, Sunday, 01 September 2002, 12:19 GMT]
The new building of the Karaveddy Southwest Pradeshya Sabah (local authority) built at a cost of nine million rupees was damaged by unidentified persons Saturday night, police sources in Jaffna said. The Eelam People's Democratic Party (EPDP) controls the Karaveddy Southwest PS administration. The ceremonial opening of the office is scheduled for Monday with the participation of UNF senior Minister Dr.Jayalath Jayawardene and EPDP Secretary General and Jaffna district parliamentarian Mr. Douglas Devananda, EPDP sources said.

Windows and doors of the new PS building were found damaged and the front outer wall of the building had been defaced with discarded engine oil, the police said.

Elaborate arrangements have been made by the Jaffna EPDP activists to conduct the ceremonial opening as their leader, Mr. Douglas Devananda, is scheduled to participate in an official event for the first time since the general election was held in December last year.

The Chairman of the PS, Mr. Jeyarasa, told TamilNet sources that the opening ceremony would be held as scheduled. However, it is not known if the UNF Minister, Mr. Jayalath Jayawardene and the EPDP leader, Mr. Douglas Devananda, will participate in the ceremony.
