Discussion on the Issues faced by Chavakachcheri Pradeshiya Sabha

A discussion on the issues faced by Chavakachcheri Pradeshiya Sabha was held with the Chairman and the members of the Pradeshiya Sabha at Governor’s Secretariat on 26th December 2018. Governor of Northern Province Reginald Cooray chaired at the meeting.


They briefly explained the illegal sand excavation activities in Chavakachcheri Pradeshiya Sabha and the actions to be taken against it.

Furthermore, they requested for a double-cab vehicle to increase the service of the Pradeshiya Sabha. They pointed out that due to the lack of revenue they could not repair more roads and to fit street-lamps. They also requested him to make arrangements to get more income to fulfill the needs of the people of the Pradeshiya Sabha. They also mentioned that a project to generate the electricity by windmills is going on at Maravanpulavu and the dangers that would be caused by the windmills to the people in the area.

Many of the roads in the area are damaged due to the transportation of heavy vehicles along these roads, and the people who are traveling through the region face difficulties.

The Governor, who listened to these issues, said he focused on all their demands and will have talks with the President and try to get the central funds of the central government. He will take actions against the matters of illegal sand mining and windmill issues after visiting the places directly.
