The confidence the people in North placed on the government had begun to crumble, TNA Parliamentarians and Provincial Council members said at a media conference today (25).

They urged the government to appoint a District Secretary who is conversant in Tamil for the Vavuniya District.

This follows the appointment of former Commissioner General of Prisons M.B. Rohana Pushpakumara as the new District Secretary of the Vavuniya. He assumed duties on Tuesday (24).

TNA Parliamentarian Sivasakthi Anandan and Provincial Health Minister P. Sathyalingam spoke to the media conference held at a private hotel in Vavuniya.

Councillor Sathyalingam said they convened the media meeting to focus on the need of a District Secretary capable of understanding the problems of the majority Tamil speaking people in the district.

He said the Northern Provincial Council held a protest demonstration against the former DS Bandula Harischandra and expected the government would appoint a suitable person but that need had not been fulfilled.(Romesh Madushanka)

    Why can not the government came to power saying good governance appoint a person who should be able to really understand the needs of the people of the area . What if a man not knowing Sinhala as DS of either Galle or Matara being appointed

    This is a bad move. Feel sorry for the public in the area.

    Thanidika Thursday, 26 November 2015 03:17 PM

    If they want the Tamil speaking one, give it to them, but make sure all other DS IN Sinhala speaking areas are Sinhalese speaking. done.

    Of course, this is kindergarden understanding. Can Matara, Galle and Kurunegala District Secretaries be Tamil speaking persons? It is sheer absurd that even this simple ABC is not understood by the present day politicians who are bent on doing things the racist way.

    If you cant converse in sinhala..go and learn sinhala...

    Sheri Thursday, 26 November 2015 04:22 PM

    Another racist comment by two horns! Sinhala is the first language so go learn it!

    lkboy Thursday, 26 November 2015 10:59 AM

    they have a point. May be can appoint an additional DS who is conversant in Tamil?

    Coconut Republic Thursday, 26 November 2015 11:26 AM

    Makes sense in terms of easy and precise communication to share their experiences and grievances.

    Thanos Thursday, 26 November 2015 12:23 PM

    in a 99 percent Tamil speaking area the DS cannot speak tamil? Brilliant yahapalanaya.
