Minister orders return of RRAN vehicles

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 04 March 2003, 12:17 GMT]
Rehabilitation Minister Dr.Jayalath Jayawardene Monday instructed Jaffna's Government Agent to take back all vehicles handed over to the chairmen of local authorities by the Rehabilitation and Reconstruction Authority for the North (RRAN) when elected councils administered these institutions, district secretariat sources said

The term of the elected administrations of the seventeen local authorities in the peninsula ended on February 17 and since then special commissioners appointed by the Provincial Commissioner of Local Government have begun administering these institutions.

However chairmen of all local authorities except those of Valigamam North and Pachilaipalli, have failed to hand over their vehicles which were supplied to them by the RRAN, to the special commissioners, sources said.

Most of these chairmen refusing to handover RRAN vehicles belong to para-military Eelam Peoples Democratic Party (EPDP). The EPDP spokesperson said they would hand over the vehicles to the RRAN if the GA demands the vehicles to be returned, sources said.

Meanwhile the special commissioner of Valigamam West Pradeshya Sabha (PS) has lodged a complaint against the former chairman of the PS for failing to return the official vehicle supplied to him when he was in his office, sources said.
