Jaffna GA K. Ganesh retires from service

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 29 June 2010, 18:44 GMT]
Mr. K. Ganesh, Government Agent (GA), Jaffna who is retiring from service Wednesday expressed his gratitude to all, particularly the media, for the cooperation offered to him in performing duties as the GA even under trying circumstances during war time, in a message to local media Tuesday. Ms. Imelda Sukumar, presently the GA of Mullaiththeevu district, will succeed Mr. K. Ganesh as the GA of Jaffna district from Thursday, sources in Jaffna said. Meanwhile, Mr. V. Velnathan, former GA of Ki'linochchi district, who had been arrested and detained under Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) for allegedly supplying information to Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) and released later is to assume duties as Mullaiththeevu district GA, the sources added.

Mr. K. Ganesh who was earlier serving as GA Vavuniyaa district was transferred to Jaffna district where he continued to serve being granted extension of service after the age of sixty-five.

The appointment of civil officers as government agents in the Tami districts brings to an end the controversy over the news that a Sri Lanka Army (SLA) key officer was to be appointed as GA Mullaiththeevu.

Mr. K. Ganesh thanked all who had helped him to carry out the distribution of food and other essential goods to the people of Jaffna district smoothly.
