...(EPDP)-led administration of the Jaffna Municipal Council said she had no regrets about stepping down this month when her term of office ended. "I believe I have fulfilled my responsibilities by developing the municipal area to the satisfaction of all the people of Sri Lanka and especially those of Jaffna" she said
"More than 100 families in the village are benefiting due to the recharge of both agro and domestic wells. Before the tank was rehabilitated the ground water had become saline and was neither suitable for drinking nor irrigating. Around 1250 cattle and buffaloes of Thevipuram and another 1000 cattle from adjoining villages are using the tank for drinking and wallowing. The livestock owners are benefitted and the village is provided with essential proteins in return. With the rehabilitation of the tank, farmers have diverted the spill water into a pond in the jungle cultivating 10 acres of banana. The farmer organizations have decided to cultivate groundnuts during the upcoming 2014 Yala season."
"As such, I expect answers to the following questions from the Minister: Even after having the regulations prepared and included into the Order Paper for approval of the Parliament, why doesn’t the government take this matter into consideration and pass the same? Is it because the government has no adequate funds that no action is taken to give the members of the EPF the benefits they are entitled to?"
