The members of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission led by its Chairman C R de Silva PC yesterday inspected the Palai Central College where most students are studying under trees. They conducted this inspection on the request of people who gave evidence before the Commission when it met at the Pachchalaipallai Divisional Secretariat yesterday. They said Police officers who can converse in Tamil with the people in the area should be deployed.
"People find it difficult to interact with them as the police officers do not have a knowledge of Tamil," they added.
M Rajaratnam, a resident of Palai on behalf of the people in the area requested Commission members to inspect what has actually happened to the school and take appropriate action to provide all facilities.
