NP Governor visits restricted areas in Vanni

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 15 September 2010, 02:21 GMT]
Northern Province Governor Major Gen. G. A. Chandrasiri accompanied by some Sinhala parliamentarians and Sri Lanka government officials visited Tuesday some places in Vanni where uprooted people have not been allowed to resettle by occupying Sri Lanka Army (SLA). Meanwhile, some influential sections are trying again to shift Northern Provincial Council (NPC) and its offices to Ki’linochchi from Trincomalee, a move which had been suspended by Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa in August, sources in Trincomalee said.

Efforts are being made to locate the NPC offices in some private vacant buildings in Ki’linochchi.

NPC Ministries of Health and Education are reported to be shifted from Trincomalee to Ki’linochchi in the next months.

The visiting group showed more interest in seeing the residence of Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) leader V. Pirapaharan in Puthumaaththa’an, now occupied by SLA officials, sources in Vanni said.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka government key officials have begun to occupy many vacant private properties in Vanni of owners living abroad, with the assistance of some civil officials.

The Centre for Employment Opportunities was opened Monday in such a private building encroached by SL government.

Namal Rajapaksa, the son of SL President Mahinda Rajapaksa, Northern Province Governor, SL minister Mahintananda Aluthgama and some parliamentarians participated in the event.
