Politicians are responsible for all the problems prevailing in the country, said the Northern Governoer, Reginold Cooray. He said this, participating in the prize giving of the Velanai South Aiyanar MV.
This event which was held day before yesterday was presided by the principal of the School, Mrs. Joyce Newton. Island sector deputy Director Education, S.Kanesarajah, Assistant Director Education, Thunukkai Zone Mrs. Hamsawathany, Director of Education, Velanai Division, SArathathevi Krishnathas, Justice of peace, Karthygesu participated in the event as Honourary Guests.
Elaborating further, he further said that, if we all are united in this small country, there will be only one leader and on country, But, if by instigation, we, the people are split into factions, there will be several leaders. This is what they are expecting. The principal, while speaking here used the terms ‘ in this small country… in this small peninisula..in this small Velanai Island… in this small school’ . But seeing the Awards won by the students, I would like to say you can achieve bigger things. You have shown that you can also make things happen. I wish to thank the teachers, parents and well wishers who had helped in this.
The reason behind the split among us is the politicians. They are present here and in the south. There is no split among people. Politicians are instigating split. They need disputes for them to remain in leadership. What the affected need now is Development. Let us all unite together and bring Development to people, he said.
