The central Government is continuing to exploit and control the powers of the Provincial Council. We have to see with what purpose Ranil had declared Mullaitheevu and Kilinochchi Districts as difficult Educational Zonal areas, said CM, Justice C.V.Wigneswaran.
He was speaking on a resolution submitted by ruling party member G.T.Linganathan. Stating that the Prime Minister Ranil had declared Kilinochchi and Mullaitheevu as difficult Zonal Educational areas, the resolution called Vavuniya District also declared likewise.
The Cm also pointed out that the Central Government is intervening in Education, which comes under the purview of the Province.
The Education Minister T.Kurukularajah said that he was not informed anything about this and strong criticism was put forward regarding the Central government attempt to manipulate and control the powers of the Provincial Council.
The Minister of Agriculture P.Ainkaranesan pointed out that in a recent conference with the President a proposal had been made regarding linking Mahaweli with Wei Oya and said that this will bring in Mahaweli Development Authority and the Sinhala Colonization will invariably follow.
Finally the resolution was altered to calling the NPC to declare Vavuniya North as a difficult Educational Area instead of Calling the Premier to do so.
