Moving the District Secretariats and Divisional Secretariats under the Ministry of Defence is handing them over the Army, said the media spokesman of TNA, M.A. Sumanthira.
Elaborating further he said that whenever we said that the country is being militarized, the Government and the pro Government parties denied that. Bringing the affairs which undertook the Civil Affairs of the country under the Ministry of Defence will create a worst situation. At the same time, a situation where the Army could control all officers will be created.
While the International countries wish to maintain their contacts with civil administration of a country, this situation is being subjected to question, he said.
At the same time, all the Tamil Ministers in the Government should take the responsibility for the action of taking the Civil Administration under the Ministry of Defence, he said.
