[TamilNet, Monday, 19 August 2002, 21:18 GMT]
"This is the last opportunity given to a government in the island to find permanent peace with honourable political solution to the Tamils," said Minister and the leader of the Upcountry People's Front Mr. P.Chandrasekaran when addressing as the guest of honour at the fourth day of the five-day 'Yuga Thekma' exhibition in Trincomalee.

"Under the proposed industrial development policy of the government, employment opportunities to youths of the Northeast province should be guaranteed," reiterated Mr. Chandrasekaran.

P.Chandrasekaran at Yuga Thekma"The future of the country now solely depends on the outcome of the proposed peace talks scheduled to be held in Thailand next month," stressed Mr. Chandrasekaran.

The Northeast province has been devastated by the war. The people of the province now live in abject difficult conditions. In the past the people of the province were self reliant in every sphere without the assistance of the government. The war has now destroyed the entire economic stability of the province, said Mr. Chandrasekaran.

”Equal opportunity should be given to all citizens of the country irrespective of their race, religion and caste," stated Mr. Chandrasekaran.

Minister of Fisheries Mr.Mahinda Wijesekara said that all should work together to bring the war to an end permanently and to build up the nation where all people should live in communal harmony.

Industries Minister Mr. Rohitha Bogollagama also spoke the function.
