NPC administration under iron fist of SL Governor Chandrasiri

[TamilNet, Sunday, 24 November 2013, 23:46 GMT]
Demonstrating the consolidation of power in the Sri Lankan unitary and military system, the colonial governor in North, Major General (retd) GA Chandrasiri is continuing to demonstrate his executive powers including the cadre management of the Northern Provincial Council (NPC) without giving room for the elected NPC to have any say in the affairs of the NPC.

The Chief Secretary of the NPC, Ms Viyaluxmy Ramesh, is continuing to receive instructions from the SL governor and she doesn’t cooperate with the elected representatives of the NPC.

The chief minister of the NPC has also gone on record stating that the chief secretary was not cooperating with him.

The SL governor would be running the show on cadre creation for the NPC.

A meeting scheduled to take place on Monday on the matter is also be chaired by him alone. The ruling party of the NPC has not been consulted.

Recent district coordinating committee meetings for Jaffna district and Ki’linochchi district have also been conducted according to the instructions of the SL governor, even after the NPC elections were won by the TNA.

When the elected representatives who form the governance of the NPC have no power to decide the administrative cadre of their own council, how are they going to use the PC system as a platform to serve the people in the North, political observers in Jaffna commented.
