Move to make money for 3-wheelers owned by state armed cadres, in Vavuniyaa

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 23 September 2009, 13:48 GMT]
The office of Vavuniya Ramya House Army Civil Affairs has been shifted from the town to Ee’rataperiyaku’lam with immediate effect, causing inconvenience to the Tamil civilian travelers. The reason for the re-location of the office is mainly to enable the three-wheelers owned by Police, Army and Civil Defence force cadres to earn more money as hire from the Tamil passengers due to the long distance to the shifted office of Ramya House Army Civil Affairs in Ee’ratperiyaku’lam, according to well informed sources in Vavuniyaa.

Since the limited public transport buses started operation in August passengers returning to Vavuniya have to obtain clearance certificates at Ramya House Office which was situated in Vavuniyaa town.

People who arrived from Colombo to Vavuniyaa by train reached Vavuniyaa town at 4:30 a.m. and there was no need for them to hire a three-wheeler to go Ramya House Civil Affairs office from the station as it was located at a walking distance.

Now the travelers have to travel 12 km paying Rs. 500 for a three wheeler.
