President  Mahinda Rajapaksa during his second visit to Vakarai since its liberation yesterday assured the people who had undergone many challenges and hardships due to terrorism, that they had a bright future ahead.

The President who received a rousing welcome from the people of the area during his visit, declared open the new Vakarai Maha Vidyalayam built on the rubble of its former tsunami/terrorist devastated structures. The school is now considered as the most modern and technically advanced in the Batticaloa district.

The European Union which contributed Rs. 300 million for the effort said that the school stands as a monument to triumph over adversity for the people of Vakarai and next generation Sri Lankans.

“This reconstruction work on one of the largest schools in the Eastern Province is a commendable example of international cooperation, together with the participation of the Government, non-government and community organizations irrespective of ethnic or religious differences,” the EU quoting the President in their message said.
