T.Srikantha, the recently appointed Jaffna district Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarian together with fellow Member of Parliament Shivajilingam met with the Acting Vice Chancellor of the University of Jaffna. Prof.K.Kumaravadivel on Saturday in an attempt to find a solution for the delay in re-opening the University of Jaffna that remains closed for more than five months.

Difficulties encountered in compiling information about the undergraduates from other districts, arranging accommodation in private residences, were the key reasons for the delay, the VC had told them, Mr.Srikantha said.

The parliamentary duo later met Jaffna Government Agent (GA) K.Ganeshalingam and discussed in detail about the current situation in Jaffna including the recent increase in abductions , disappearances and killings of the civilians .The parliamentarians requested the GA to compile a report recording all such incidents and submit the report to Sri Lanka Government and to all members of parliament .

The two MPs later had public meetings in several locations and listened to the peoples grievances.
