New Horizons for People in Gurunagar Area
[Updated :: 2010-08-05 09:01:15 Hours]

Ninety seven houses situated in the security zone between Gurunagar and Ceynor jetties were handed over to their owners by the Security Forces-Jaffna (SF-J) and opened the New Beach Road in Gurunagar for the public use on Monday (02.08.2010).

Resettlement of those families in their own lands after about 14 years will give solutions to many problems of fishermen such as traveling, transporting products and storing fishing gears.

After Jaffna was liberated by valiant soldiers with Riviresa operation in 1996, troops were deployed in this area to prevent the LTTE firing in the direction of Jaffna town from the lagoon area and to thwart attempts of infiltration.

In compliance with directives of Commander of the Army Lieutenant General Jagath Jayasuriya, private lands within Security Zones in Jaffna are gradually being released to their owners for cultivation and resettlement.

At invitation of Commander Security Forces-Jaffna Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe, Hon. Minister of Small and Traditional Industry Development Mr. Douglas Devananda, Governor Northern Province Maj. Gen. (Retd) G.A. Chandrasiri, District Secretary Jaffna Mrs. Imelda Sukumar and Mayoress Jaffna Mrs. Yogeshwari Pathgunaraja graced the ceremony organized to mark the event.

In January, SF-J released certain restricted areas in Thanankilappu, Point Pedro and Clock Tower road in Jaffna for the use of general public.
