Pieris, Douglas Devananda, Jaffna Government Agent Ms. Imelda Sukumar and parliamentarian Ranga, sources in Jaffna said. The team of SL ministers and parliamentarians had inaugurated similar road development work in Vanni Saturday.

Road extension and development works were first inaugurated at Stanley Road on Jaffna-Palaali road and then on Jaffna-Point Pedro road in front of Puththoor Somaskantha College where Namal Rajapaksa addressed a public meeting.

Namal Rajapaksa said that road development work taking place in Jaffna peninsula after a period of 30 years is a matter of pleasure. He added that the roads in Sri Lanka should be developed into first grade roads.
