[TamilNet, Monday, 12 May 2003, 01:40 GMT]
The Trincomalee district branch of the Tamil Rehabilitation Organization (TRO) Sunday declared open its first divisional office at Chenaiyoor in the LTTE held Muttur east.

TRO Trincomalee district co-ordinator Mr.K.Mathavarajah said the TRO decided to open two branch offices in the Muttur division, one in the LTTE held area and the other in the government controlled area.

Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarian Mr.K.Thurairetnasingham unveiled the name board of the TRO divisional office at Chenaiyoor. LTTE Trincomalee district political head Mr.Thilak declared open the divisional office by cutting the ribbon, sources said.

Muttur division is neglected in the sphere of development by the government agencies. Some non-governmental agencies with the assistance of the LTTE political leadership in the Muttur have provided basic facilities to needy residents. Now the entry of TRO gives hope to the people of the area for a better future, said Ms Kaaronja, head of the Education and Cultural Unit of the LTTE in Trincomalee district.
