UN, EU reps discuss development with Batticaloa district GA

[TamilNet, Friday, 17 September 2010, 08:34 GMT]
The delegation led by Neil Buhne, the UN Resident Representative and Human Coordinator, accompanied by representatives of European Union, met Batticaloa district Government Agent (GA) Suntharam Arumainayagam Wednesday and discussed matters related to the development of Batticaloa district, Batticaloa District Secretariat sources said. Meanwhile, the resettled families in Paduvaankarai complained that though Sri Lanka Deputy Minister Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan says that funds have been allocated for the supply of drinking water to them every time he comes to Batticaloa, nothing has been done, the sources added. Lack of drinking water is the most serious problem the resettled families in Paduvaankarai face.

The UN and EU representatives were particularly interested in finding whether the funds allocated by UN and other foreign institutions are being utilized for the resettlement and development activities in Paduvaankarai and Vaakarai in Batticaloa district.

The GA had told the visiting team of the immediate need for improvement in the supply of dry food relief ration to the resettled families.

He had also explained to them that housing, education, health, irrigation, electricity, infrastructures and livelihoods in Batticaloa district need development.
