Two Provincial Councils for North & East!

    There will be two ex-Sinhala governors probabily ex-army /navy personnels.

    After the PC elections, if ever held, 2 more chief ministers, 10 more ministers and the administrative offiers. This wasteful bureucratic layer will solve nothing but necessitate printing of more bank notes to pay for these `good for nothing` SLFP boys and girls. The bank note printing raised the inflation to 19.3 but the president does not seem to understand the implications of his Mahinda Cintanaya.

    Good.

    This is what the people of NE, who directly affected by terrorists, aspects.

    This will help eastern Tamil Brothers to be released from clutches of LTTE.

    There are separate LTTE leaders, Karuna and Prabha, who believes that,there is a difference between Eastern & Northern Tamils. So there is nothing wrong at all.

    These pro LTTE speakers don`t realize the importance of this, because they are not directly affected by the terrorism of LTTE. Most of them are living out from NE or getting salaries from LTTE or supported NGOs.

    Wije86,

    Prior to 1987 the northern and the eastern provinces were separate and the problems of terrorism existed. It was as a solution to that problem that the Provincial Councils were brought to all provinces devolving power and the northern and the eastern provinces were merged for administrative convenience.

    After the merger with the NE PC the problems still existed. Now do you honestly think that the de-merger bringing the status quo back to what it was prior to 1987 is going to work some magic to end the terrorist problem?

    The Provincial Councils that were set up in all the provinces are nothing but white elephants costing the tax payer but they virtually do nothing beneficial for the country.

    Prior to 1987 there were no povincial councils, now we have. That is about the only difference. Other than that there would be no benefit to anyone, be they Sinhala, Tamil or Muslim unless they are the Governor, Chief Minister, Ministers PC MPs or officials or henchmen.

    East for Karuna the child recruiter, and North for the Venerable Jahanikta from the hardcore JHU, the child monk former.

    As I predicted yesterday the Sinhalese Governor of the Eastern PC is acting as the Governor of the Northern PC.

    [North-East demerger activates

    The administrative operations of the newly de-merged Northern and Eastern provinces started yesterday with the dawn of the new year in separate offices in Trincomalee town, a top government official said. Eastern Governor Mohan Wijeyawickrema, who is also the acting Governor for Northern Province, told the Daily Mirror last evening the offices functioned smoothly.
