[Updated :: 2010-07-15 23:45:32 Hours]
Ms. Imelda Sukumar, upon her assuming the office as the new Government
Agent and District Secretary Jaffna, paid a courtesy call on Commander
Security Forces-Jaffna (SF-J) Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe
in his office at Palaly on Thursday (15.07.2010).
Having accorded a warm welcome at the Headquarters SF-J, Ms. Sukumar,
a senior administrative officer with 26 year experience in the field
of civil administration, had a formal discussion with the SF-J Commander
on matters which require close coordination between administrative
and military authorities in developing Jaffna while providing a
superior service to its people.
During the discussion, the new GA expressed her satisfaction over
the contribution of the Army towards the reawakening of Jaffna so
far and reminded Maj. Gen. Hathurusinghe of the support he extended
as the Commander Security Forces-Kilinochchi to her when she was
the GA for Mullaitivu and Kilinochchi.
Elaborating the great responsibility she has in rectifying some
existing irregularities of the administrative machinery in Jaffna,
Ms. Sukumar requested the same support form the SF-J Commander in
executing her duties as the Head of Civil Administration in Jaffna
to establish an effective and efficient administration.
Ms. Sukumar was the GA Mullaitivu until she took over the office
of GA Jaffna on Tuesday (13) succeeding Mr. K. Ganesh who retired
as the senior most District Secretary after 32 years of service
of Sri Lanka Administrative Service.
