The NPC CM, C.V.Wickneswaran said that he is studying about the reason behind the change of names of our archeological sites in the North.
Elaborating further said that the names of a large number of placed have been changed. I am in the process of collecting the names of all places which were popular in the 1970s. I am to study why these names were changed.I shall call explanations from relevant factions as to why they had changed these names.
There are several problems regarding Archeology. We come under the Central Government as per 13th amendment. Hence there is a need to speak to them. They talk ina nice way when talking to us , but no action is taken.
World Bank is drawing a plan worth 55 thousand million American dollars, centering on Jaffna. The can talk with Colombo Government and take action. They taking action to renovate places like “Manthiry Manai”. As World Bank is intervening they are coming to undertake development. The Army should get out. They have under their possession commercial centres, lands of people and tourist spots. These matters should be handled politically, he said.
