Swimming pool project in Jaffna abandoned due to swindle

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 08 June 2010, 16:59 GMT]
The construction of a big swimming pool in Jaffna Central College premises launched by the ‘Blue Brigade’ youths of Namal Rajapakse, son of President Rajapakse and parliamentarian, has been abandoned as Blue Brigade men from South had sold the iron rods and cement collected for the construction of the pool in the open market in Jaffna, sources in Jaffna said. The foundation laying ceremony for this swimming pool had been held with great government publicity and propaganda with the participation of Namal Rajapakse, Northern Province Governor Major Gen. G. A. Chandrasiri and many ministers. It was claimed in the ceremony that the swimming pool is being built for the use of the student community in Jaffna peninsula.



The principal of Jaffna Central College said that the construction work on the swimming pool that had taken a great area of the college land now lies abandoned.

Besides, the pits dug in the initial work are a risk to the safety of students, he added.



‘Nil Balakaya’ is the Sinhalese name of the Blue Brigade which claims to be an organization committed to unite, develop and nurture the youth of Sri Lanka together in the name of peace, according to Pium Perera, Attorney-at Law, a key representative of Nil Balakaya.

He had explained the purpose of setting up of Nil Balakaya (Blue Brigade) and its future plans in an exclusive interview with the Sunday Observer in January 2010.
