Major General Tennekoon meets Jaffna civil officials

[TamilNet, Thursday, 26 August 2004, 14:49 GMT]
Major General Sunil Tennekon, newly appointed Jaffna area commander of the Sri Lanka Army, Thursday said problems confronting the people of Jaffna district could be solved when the current peace process progresses towards reaching a permanent solution, during a discussion at the Jaffna district secretariat presided by Government Agent Mr.S.Pathmanathan, sources said.

Director of the Jaffna Teaching Hospital, Commissioner of Jaffna Municipal Council and local heads of government departments attended the discussion.

Major General Sunil Tennekon paid his first visit to Jaffna district secretariat Thursday since he assumed duties in Jaffna replacing Major General Susil Chandrapala who had been transferred to Colombo, sources said.

Major General Tennekon further said that the long standing problems faced by Jaffna residents cannot be solved within a few days. Solutions can only be found to those problems when the current peace process moves forward positively.

''However I would take steps to solve some problems which come within my purview and also I am prepared to render assistance in this regard,'' said Major General Sunil Tennekoon.

Local heads of government departments also briefed him about problems they face in discharging official duties in the Jaffna district, sources said.
