Decision to please Karuna rescinded by Cabinet meeting on 16th as Ferial opposes

leave a comment »

The Cabinet decision taken last week to please National Integration Minister Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan (Karuna) was withdrawn by a Cabinet decision at a meeting on 16th, because Housing Minsiter Ferial Ashroff took offence at this decision. This action to stop was because of the decision to appoint a new Secretariat at ‘Kalmunai North’

All these years, it was only the Kalmunai District secretariat which was functioning. This Secretariat was represented most by Tamils and Muslims. At the request of Minister Karuna., this Secretariat was to become the Kalmunai North secretariat with the increase of 27 Gramaseva divisions of Kalmunai to 29. The Cabinet took a decision last week to create the Kalmunai North Secretariat. However, as Kalmunai is considered as a main Town of the Muslims, the Muslims lodged strong protests against this decision as the Muslims can be deprived of Kalmunai. On this basis, Minster Ferial Ashroff had objected to this earlier decision at 16th Cabinet meeting. Consequently, the earlier cabinet decision was suspended
