New Building Complex for Jaffna MC

leave a comment »

“The Jaffna Municipal Council had been constructed in traditional Dravidian architectural style. Rated as one of the best in the Island, 2nd only to Colombo Municipal Council. However, the war had seen the end to this once magnificent building”, Douglas Devananda, Minister Social Service and Social Welfare said at a foundation stone laying ceremony for a new Jaffna Municipal Council’s building complex.

Minister Devananda said that he was extremely happy to commence the construction of a building which would once again reflect Tamil Cultural aspects, perhaps even surpassing the one that existed earlier, under “Uthuru Vasanthaya” (Northern Spring) programme of President Mahinda Rajapaksa. He would take steps to make Jaffna, a fully fledged modern city whilst protecting every aspect of the culture of the Tamil people.
