Jaffna MPCS employees agitate against political interference

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 14 September 2010, 05:09 GMT]
The General Manager of Jaffna Multi Purpose Cooperative Society (MPCS) resigned his post Monday due to pressure by Sri Lanka minister Douglas Devananda and his supporters, sources in Jaffna said. Sri Lanka government has scrapped the democratically elected Board of Directors of MPC societies appointing its own persons as directors who are alleged of corruption, Jaffna MPCS members said. A case against the former President of Jaffna MPCS, Kiritharan, appointed by Douglas Devananda, for misappropriating millions of rupees is pending in Jaffna High Court in which Douglas Devananda is also involved, the members said. Jaffna MPCS handles various services to people of Jaffna peninsula including the distribution of relief dry food rations.

Kiritharan, a retired engineer, was removed from the post of President of Jaffna MPCS Board of Directors by SL minister Douglas Devanda who had appointed another person as president.

The newly appointed President too is alleged of corruption and the employees of Jaffna MPCS have been agitating against him. Douglas Devananda has removed the newly appointed president too from his post.

Earlier, Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Intelligence wing men had shot and killed the democratically elected president of Jaffna MPCS, Karunas, a retired engineer of SL Electricity Board.

Douglas Devananda had appointed Kiritharan in place of assassinated Karunas.

The employees of Jaffna MPCS are agitating against the interference by SL government political persons demanding non-interference in the administration of Jaffna MPCS.
