[TamilNet, Monday, 29 March 2010, 17:23 GMT]
The Governor of Sri Lanka Central Bank, Ajith Cabrala, participating as the chief guest in the ceremony, laid the foundation stone Monday in Nalloor Muththiraichanththai area in Jaffna for a star tourist hotel which he said will soon be completed construction at the event, sources in Jaffna said. Gnanam and Subas hotels in Jaffna had been occupied for the last fourteen years by Sri Lanka Army (SLA) which had converted both private hotels into a major military base of its 512 Division. The government which had refused to handover both hotels to their rightful owners is staging this event in order to show that it is actively promoting development in Jaffna peninsula so as to entice voters, civil society organizations in the peninsula observed.
