Impasse with the TNA; A joint working Group to facilitate the development agenda in the North?

In a news report filed by Waruni Karunarathne in the Sunday Leader of the 14th September 2014, TNA MP, Suresh Premachandran has reiterated that there are different issues in the North and the East compared to other provinces as these areas had to bear the brunt of nearly 30 years of terrorism and war. “There are issues about war widows, orphans, those who are disabled, and many such specific problems in the North and East. The Sri Lankan government does not seem to have separate programs to address these specific issues,” he said. He pointed out that more than 10,000 former LTTE cadres had been rehabilitated but no measures had been taken to help them find suitable jobs or engage in self-employment.
