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.
