Education of 5000 children affected in Pallai region

[TamilNet, Sunday, 11 May 2003, 12:22 GMT]
Three schools in Kilali, Allipallai and Muhamalai areas in Pallai region in Kilinochchi district cannot function in the original premises due to the occupation of school buildings by the Sri Lanka security forces, said Mr. Ariyaratnam, the Kilinochchi district Commissioner of Education.

Temporary arrangements are being made to relocate these schools to nearby sheds to allow continuation of education of children affected by the military camps, added Mr. Ariyaratnam.

The Education Commissioner added that war destroyed thirteen schools affecting the education of more than 5000 children. No effort has been taken to renovate these school buildings even the currently prevailing peace climate, the Commissioner said.

Meanwhile, S. Puthirasihamany, Secretary for Pallai region, declared open a branch building of Sri Lanka Red Cross (SLRC) in Pallai last week, sources said.

Pallai was reduced to rubble under Chandrika Kumaratunge's People's Alliance (PA) regime when the Sri Lanka army launched Agni Khiela (Rod of Fire) offensive in April 2001, a year after the fall of the strategic Elephant Pass garrison.
