Unemployment problem is a serious problem in Kilinochchi District. In a context where the young generation here is encountering several problems due to unemployment, majority race boys and girls from the south of Sri Lanka are being appointed to the state establishments in large numbers. This is a matter for condemnation and concern, said the former MP, M.P.Chandrakumar, the Leader of the People’s Organization for equity and Social Justice.
Unprecedented level of un-employment is raking the young generation of Kilinochchi and this is causing much inquietude among them. In this context, it is causing much dissatisfaction and frustration among the young community including former militants found without employment that, large number of Southern Sinhalese boys and girls are being appointed to even minor posts.
Particularly during the Good Governance Government, the vacancies available in Railway Department, Forest Department, CEB, Wild life Department, Survey Department, and several departments coming under Ministry of Public Administration and Local Government in Kilinochchi District are being filled with southern youths. This is a matter for condemnation and concern.
The representatives of Tamil not concerned with this important matter and not taking any action when employment is given to majority people from South are causing pain of mind, he said.
