Negenahira Navodaya brings results beyond expectations - Karu

The Government's "Negenahira Navodaya" programme had brought results beyond expectations, Public Administration and Home Affairs Minister Karu Jayasuriya said at the final meeting organised to review the progress of the programme at his Ministry yesterday.

"The great contribution and devotion of the officers involved under the relevant Ministries, Departments, and other statutary bodies were behind this success", said Jayasuriya.

He acknowledged and appreciated the services executed by various officers to bring normalcy to the lives of the Easterners through the "Negenahira Navodaya" accelerated programme which was conducted through 180 days.

Through this achievement it was able to draw the attention of international donor countries and voluntary organisations to support the programme. "The role played by public officers in this endeavour was appreciated by President Mahinda Rajapaksa too", the Minister stressed.

The people in the Eastern Province who suffered long due to terrorist activities would now be able to get about their daily lives without fear, Minister Jayasuriya said.

Jayasuriya said his Ministry has already decided to conduct the next "Janatha Sathkara Sevaya" in Trincomalee with a large participation of officers of the respective Ministries, Departments and statutary bodies. "This is specially to mark the completion of 180 days development drive", he added.

All transactions of Cooperative Societies in the Eastern Province will be exempt from taxes and long term loans written off. All main retail outlets in Trincomalee, Batticaloa and Ampara will be opened shortly.

The Social Services and Social Welfare Ministry agreed to provide 5,000 pairs of spectacles for the people in these areas.

Education Ministry has decided to take action to fill all teacher vacancies in the Tamil medium schools through local recruitments.

The Youth Affairs Ministry explained that the Ministry has already conducted youth camps with the participation of 384 youths from Ampara and 370 from Batticaloa districts under the "Yovun Divi Maga" programme of the Ministry. All arrangements have been made to open three Youth Information Centres.
