People disapprove of 'blood- letting' mindset - Minister Devananda

The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) is not willing to support ongoing development work. It adheres to the "Blood letting" mindset, which the people will never approve, said Traditional Industries and Small Enterprise Development Minister Douglas Devananda. The minister was addressing a gathering of Eritrean People's Democratic Party supporters in Kilinochch last week.

The minister said it is necessary to forget bitter past and join the government in its re-building Sri Lanka.

The freedom enjoyed at present as a result of President Mahinda Rajapaksa is quite sufficient to vote in favour of the government" he said.

It is important to support government representatives proceed with developmental work which are in progress.

The minister said that the government will set up an Agriculture Faculty at the Jaffna University. President Mahinda Rajapaksa agrees to grant a political solution, he added.

He said 10,000 bicycles will be distributed among the needy in the Kilinochchi and Jaffna Districts. Selected persons will be given Rs 5,000 each to commence small industries. MP Murugesu Chandrakumar said massive development work has been launched in Kilinochchi to uplift Agriculture, Coconut and Palmyrah based industries which would result in many employment opportunities. He said every village will be provided with electricity and drinking water through the Iranamadu reservoir scheme by the end of 2012.
