"We should administer the newly created Kalmunai Municipal Council as an example to show the unity of Muslims and Tamils in the town," said Deputy Mayor Mr.I.L.Kamardeen addressing the first meeting of the council Thursday morning. The Mayor Mr.Abdul Rahim Asmir did not attend the meeting due to illness, sources said.

Nine members of the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC), six members of the Ilankai Tamil Arasu Kadchchi (ITAK), two members of the United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) and the only member of the Muslim National Alliance (MNA) participated in the first meeting, sources said.

All councillors were received at the commencement of the meeting. Thereafter the Deputy Mayor hoisted the Sri Lanka national flag. ITAK councillors did not attend the national flag hoisting event. The Deputy Mayor appealed to all councillors to work for the betterment of the town with dedication irrespective of race and religion.

The Deputy Mayor at the end of his address submitted a programme for developing Kalmunai town.

Mr.Henry Mahendran, leader of the ITAK councillors said as far as Tamils are concerned they want to promote harmony and unity between the two communities in the town. He said that one third of the councillors are from the ITAK and the administration should be mindful of the need to ensure a fair and equitable distribution of services to all communities, he added.

He said no room should be allowed for political and outside interference in the council administration at any stage.

Several other councillors also spoke, sources said.
