Vadamaradchchi residents agitate for electricity

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 22 September 2004, 15:59 GMT]
Association for Preservation of Natural Resources in Vadamaradchchi East Wednesday made an appeal to the Jaffna District Government Agent to take immediate steps to provide electricity supply to villages in the division.

The President of the Association has brought to the notice of the Government Agent Mr.S.Pathmanathan that several villages in Vadamaradchchi east division have not been provided with electricity.

Before 1990, efforts were made to provide electricity supply to some of the villages in the division. Concrete posts were delievered to the villages and some were erected. However the attempt did not materialize.

Now a new attempt is being made to commence work on electrification project from Vallipuram area.

"We feel the current attempt also would fail if the officials of the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) do not carry out the work before monsoon rain sets in," said the President of the Association in his letter.

Copies of the letter have been sent to the Jaffna Electrical Superintendent, Special Commander of the Sea Tigers and Vadamarachchi East Assistant Government Agent.
