The Chief Minister of NP, C.V. Wigneswaran accused that Sinhala District Secretaries are appointed to facilitate Sinhala Colonization of the border Districts. He made this accusation at the Press conference held at the CM’s Secretariat.
Elaborating further he said, I came to understand that Officers from the Southern Sri Lanka are being appointed to the Northern areas. Especially, Sinhalese Officers have been appointed as the District Secretaries of the Northern Province’s Border Districts of Vavuniya, Mannar and Mulaitheevu Districts.
The prime motive of these appointments is the undertaking of Sinhala Colonization without any hindrance.
If it is necessary to appoint Tamil Officer to the South and Sinhala Officers to the North appoint the Sinhala officers to the Jaffna District, not to the border Districts, he said.
