Sri Lanka’s Inspector General of Police, Mahinda Balasuriya, Anandasangaree of TULF, Chief Secretary of the Northern Provincial Council, Director of Sri Lankan Tea Board and the GA of Ki'linochchi district took part in the event.
The security in the town was tightened during the opening ceremonies.
