One more House Constructed by the Army Handed over to a Jaffna Family

Commander Security Forces Jaffna Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe on Saturday (16) urged Tamil Diaspora and other interested parties to have an optimistic view on the government’s effort taken to develop Jaffna and appreciate Army’s welfare work for the poor in Jaffna.

Maj. Gen. Hathurusinghe expressed those ideas addressing a gathering senior government officials and puttur villagers present on the occasion of handing over the new house constructed by the Army for a low income family in Puttur East.

“It is my opinion that they can do a better service to Jaffna if they use the money that they waste on traveling to Europe to spread distorted stories, which tarnish the image of the country, to build some houses for destitute families in Jaffna,” SF-J Commander said. “Despite criticism of such groups with political motives, Army in post war Jaffna will continue its welfare service for Jaffna community,” he added.

Security Forces – Jaffna this week handed over another house constructed by the Army under its Housing Project for Jaffna low income families to its recipient. The house was constructed by the 5th Sri Lanka Light Infantry (5 SLLI) of Atchuvely for Mr. S. Viknesvaran, an unemployed father of three of Puttur East.

Construction work commenced in early February this year on request of Mr. Viknesvaran who brought his poor living standard to the notice of Commander 511 Brigade Colonel Wijendra Goonathilake. The 5 SLLI serving under the 511 Brigade undertake the task of building a house for him and completed the Rs. 500,000 worth house within six weeks.

The function organized to hand over the house was attended by Rev. Fr. Vincent of Kopay Catholic Church, the General Officer Commanding 51 Division Brigadier Chandana Gunawardane, Commander 511 Brigade Colonel Wijendra Goonathilake, Commander 5 SLLI Lieutenant Colonel G.A.L. Kithsiri, principal Kopay College of Education Mr. Yoganathan, principal Puttur Methodist Mission Tamil Mixed school Mr. Kugathasan and many others.

SF-J has so far built 1782 houses for poor families in Jaffna.
