Colombo’s Government Agent (GA) in the Mannaar district of the Northern Province, Mr A.S. Sarath Ravindra, who is a Sinhalese, has been transferred with immediate effect for poor performance in the Sinhalicisation of the Tamil district, news sources in Mannaar said. Similar to Ma’nal-aa’ru in the Mullaith-theevu district that is now Sinhalicised into ‘Weli-oya’ division, grabbing a part of the North at its border, the genocidal State has been planning for a massive Sinhala colonisation at the Musali division of the Mannaar district too that borders the North Central and North Western Provinces. The new GA of the occupying State, Mr M.N. Desapriya, who is also a Sinhalese, assumed duties even before handover by his predecessor and has immediately conducted a meeting with the Bishop of Mannaar.
The transfer that has taken place after the announcement of the Provincial Council elections, raises questions on the other motives too, news sources in Mannaar said.
The Rajapaksa regime, internationally known for its electoral intimidations and manipulations but is always patted on its back by New Delhi and Washington, must have considered Mr. Ravindra unsuitable for the task, the news sources said.
Occupying Colombo’s new GA for Mannaar was serving as Education Secretary of the Southern Provincial Council.
Of all the provinces in the island, it is only the North that has five districts. All the other provinces have just two or three districts. The administrative partitioning is now intensely used for the Sinhalicisation of the Province, especially at its borders both in the southeast and southwest.
