NPC criticises military administration of preschools

Military-run preschools in the Vanni should be brought under the control of the Northern Provincial Council, council members have said.

Sri Lankan military forces continue to interfere in Tamil civilian life through the Civil Security Department, Emmanuel Arnold, NPC member for Kilinochchi said.

Teachers at CSD preschools are forced to undergo military training, Mr Arnold said, perpetuating the militarisation of the Tamil homeland.

NPC members criticised the encroachment of the CSD in areas of the council's authority and said that all educational establishments should fall under NPC administration.
