TNA parliamentarians of Northern and Eastern provinces had abstained from attending Sri Lanka government’s District Development Meetings though some had participated in the meetings in the Eastern Province.

Sri Lanka Minister Fowzi also paid a visit Sunday to Pommai Ve’li in Jaffna Oaddumadam area recently affected by floods.

A large number of Muslim families have been resettled recently in Pommai Ve’li.

The SL minister instructed Jaffna Municipal Council (JMC) officials to take immediate steps to drain the flood waters and to offer rehabilitation assistance to all the affected families living in Pommai Ve’li.

The officials, however, told Fowzi that JMC does not have sufficient funds to carry out the instructions.

Meanwhile, Fowzi ceremoniously opened the Jaffna office of Mihin Lanka Air Lines Sunday, alleged to be a concern of SL President Mahinda Rajapaksa family, Sunday.

The Airlines will operate flight services between Colombo Katunayake International Airport and Jaffna Palaali Airport.
