4 border Sinhala villages brought under Batticaloa district administration

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 14 July 2009, 08:42 GMT]
Four Sinhala border villages which were administered under Ampaa'rai district for the last eighteen years have now been brought under the administration of Batticaloa district. Sinhala villages, Gemunupura and Managalagama located along Batticaloa-Chengkaladi-Badulla highway have been annexed with Ea’raavoor Pattu-Chengkaladi Divisional Secretariat division (DS) and Keviliyaamadu and Pulugannaawa with Paddippazhai DS division. Both DS divisions come under the administration of Batticaloa District Secretariat.

Eighteen years ago these four Sinhala border villages were brought under the administration of Ampaa’rai District Secretariat to facilitate Sinhala residents to transact their official and other activities without coming to Batticaloa Kachcheri.

Ampaa’rai District Government Agent, Mr. Sunil Kannangara, has notified all government departments about the change, sources said.
