GA moves to Kilinochchi, refugees to follow

By Chris Kamalendran

The Government has directed the Mullaitivu and Kilinochchi District Secretary, Emelda Sukumar, to resume functions at the Kilinochchi office as a prelude to resettle civilians displaced from the district.
Ms. Sukumar said yesterday she was officially informed by the Government and Security Forces commanders of the two districts to start renovation of the Kilinochchi Secretariat which was damaged during the war.

“I have also been told to make arrangements to repair the district’s other war-damaged state buildings such as hospitals, schools, local government offices, post offices and co-operative stores.

She said the government had also advised her that the Mullaitivu district reconstruction work would also have to be undertaken shortly.

The moves come amidst government plans to start resettling people from the Wanni district in keeping with its pledge that 80 percent of the civilians would be resettled before the end of the year.
