The TNPF members of the Jaffna Municipal Council had submitted a memorandum to the NPC CM, that the Mayor of the JMC, E. Arnold is engaged in abuse of power and that disciplinary Inquiry should be held and disciplinary action taken against the Mayor.
It is stated in this memorandum that although 2 meetings of the council had been held so far, No sub- committee including Finance Sub- Committee had been formed. However financial are continuing without any authority from the council. Tenders had been called in the name of the Mayor.
We wish to bring to your attention that these had been undertaken on the own discretion of the Mayor which is contravening the laws and regulations relevant to the Municipal Council. Although our members called for the formation of the Sub-committees vide their letter dated 2018.04.20, no action had been taken by the Mayor in this regard.
Further an appointment of ” Private Coordinator for Mayor of Jaffna” had been made, on a letter with JMC Emblem, which confirms that the Mayor is contravening laws and regulations relevant to the Municipal Council and that the Mayor had abused his power.
Hence we request you to take appropriate disciplinary action on relevant persons and ensure that the activities of the Council undertaken subject to rules and regulations relevant to the Municipal Council, they have asked.
