Two parties at the Northern Provincial Council (NPC) have clashed regarding the commemoration events that were to start on 12th this month in Mullivaikkal, Mullaitivu.

NPC member M. K. Sivajilingam said he has organized an event from 12-19 this month in Wellamulli- Waikkal.

However NPC member Anandi Shashidaran said that the ceremonies must be organized by the council and not independently.

The 30 year conflict ended in the Wellamulli- Waikkal fight. May 18th marks the fourth year since the war ended.

Meanwhile, Army Spokesperson Brigadier Jayanath Jayaweera said discussions will be held under the leadership of the Defence Secretary regarding its celebrations.
