Northern Province Chief Minister C V Wigneswaran has criticized Northern Province Governor Reginald Cooray for holding a meeting on Jaffna city development scheme without consulting him, according to a news report.
Wigneswaran was addressing a meeting organised by a non-governmental organization. He added that the Provincial Council had been discussing the scheme with the authorities concerned for the last one year. Without ascertaining the status of the discussion, the Governor has convened a meeting.
Wigneswaran also charged that voluntary organisations and foreign agencies are seeking to implement several of their schemes in the Province either under the guidance of the Central government or with the Centre’s permission, without taking into confidence the provincial administration.
