[TamilNet, Sunday, 20 July 2003, 16:45 GMT]
Sri Lanka Telecom Friday disconnected the telephone line to the Delft Pradeshiya Sabah (PS - village level local authority) in Jaffna district due to the failure of paying arrears incurred to the PS administration when its office building was under the control of the Sri Lanka Navy (SLN), local government ministry sources said.

The Delft PS administration has now written to the Defence Ministry to pay the telephone arrears to the Predeshiya Sabah, local government ministry sources said.

The SLN handed over the Delft PS office building to the PS administration after the ceasefire agreement signed by the government and LTTE came into force in 2002. The SLN failed to pay the telephone bill of one hundred thousand rupees the SLN used during its occupation, local government ministry sources said.

The telephone number of the Delft PS office is 070-212477.

When the Delft PS administration was in the hands of the para military Eelam Peoples Democratic Party (EPDP) the SLN moved into the PS office building, civil sources said Residents of the Delft held sit in protest in front of the PS office building when EPDP cadres entered Delft to recommence their political activities after the ceasefire agreement came into operation.

The EPDP members and SLN left the PS building due to the protest by residents of Delft,civil sources said.
