* Sri Lankan government to discuss issues over re-demarcation of the East
Sun, Jan 20, 2013, 07:35 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 20, Colombo: The Public Administration Ministry of Sri Lanka is to hold a meeting with parliamentarians from the Eastern Province to resolve the crisis over the proposed re-demarcation of boundaries of divisional secretariats in the area.

Public Administration Minister John Seneviratne has said that a meeting would be held on Thursday to address the issue.

He has observed that political parties in the East have complained over the re-demarcation.

Supporters of former Eastern Province Chief Minister Sivanesathurai Chandrakanthan had protested last week in Batticaloa against moves to merge Tamil majority areas in Koralaipattu South and Koralai Pattu with Muslim majority Koralaipattu West.

Meanwhile, Muslim activists including those from the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress have last week held a protest calling on the government to go ahead with the re-demarcation of boundaries.
