Discussion to probe Jaffna’s Current Situation

A discussion to probe the measures to control the increasing sword attack incidents and narcotic drug use in Jaffna District was held under the chairmanship of Governor of Northern Province Reginald Cooray on 09th August 2018 at Governor’s Secretariat which is located at Chundikuli, Jaffna.


Secretary to the Governor L.Ilaangovan, Government Agent of Jaffna District N.Vethanayagan, high ranking officials from Police and Army, religious leaders, intellectuals, Divisional Secretaries of all the DS divisions of Jaffna District were present in the meeting.

Governor said that to prevent violence and social degradation, steps have been taken to form a structure consisting of social representatives, religious leaders, legal officers and security forces.

“Hindu morals and ethics should be taught to the children by forming many Hindu Dhamma schools in Jaffna. There could be a reduction in wrong practices, including violence.” He also said.

There is a fall in teaching Hindu ethics to the children among Hindu society, though Buddhist, Christian, and Muslim religions have taught enough their religious ethics to their children.

In a three-hour discussion, various suggestions were made by the government high officials, social representatives and religious leaders.

Especially, continuous illegal sand mining at Ketpali, Thanankilappu of Thenmaradachi, illegal activities at the houses of the uninhabited and increasing ganja use at Navatkuli coastal areas were brought to the attention of Governor.

They also said that there is a lack of improvement in complaints about cows being slaughtered for meat at Karainagar, Pungudutivu and Analaitivu.
