Relations between Centre and the province be based on 13A: EP Chief Minister

Chief Minister of the Eastern Province Nazeer Ahamed has stressed that the relations between the Centre and the provincial council must be based on the basis of the 13 th amendment.

Trincomalee held at the Trincomalee District Secretariat recently. Minister of Local Government Karu Jayasuriya was present.

He went on that the 13 th amendment provides for devolution for the betterment of the country. District Secretaries and Divisional Secretaries face difficulties since they have a dual role to play, carrying out directives from the Centre and the Province. Devolution through the 13 th amendment is therefore healthy.
