PTF insists NGOs in North to engage only in construction of houses

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 09 November 2010, 08:19 GMT]
The Secretary of the President’s Task Force (PTF) in Sri Lanka, S. P. Divaratne, in an urgent circular to the Government Agents in the North instructed them not to entertain any new proposals of projects submitted by the Non-government Organizations (NGOs) functioning in the North but to insist on them to concentrate on housing projects in the war affected Vanni instead, sources in Jaffna said. Amidst accusations that Sri Lanka government is reluctant to accept the Indian government’s offer to build 50,000 houses in Vanni the PTF insisting on NGOs to only engage in constructing houses in Vanni is seen as a ploy to deflect India’s presence in Vanni, NGO circles in Vanni said.

The PTF circular has been sent to the Government Agents in the districts of Jaffna, Ki’linochchi, Mullaiththeevu, Vavuniyaa and Mannaar.

The circular ruling out all proposals for new projects, however, allows the NGOs to engage in projects proposed earlier.

Copy of the circular has been sent to the respective NGOs in their districts by the GAs.

The NGOs in North have been active in assisting the resettled families in Vanni with basic facilities and help to engage in cultivation and their withdrawal from this work will severely affect the people in Vanni, the sources added.

Meanwhile, PTF has instructed the GAs to hasten the construction of houses for the current year and complete them before the end of the year.
