Transport Minister Kumara Welgama said that during his visit to Jaffna, he promised to provide a better transport service for the resettled people. Keeping his promise the Minister handed over five bus engines to the CTB Jaffna district manager K. Ganepillai recently to operate in Jaffna. The Matugama CTB depot had repaired those buses.

Minister Welgama told The Island that the resettlement process was nearing completion and a large number of displaced people had returned to their original places. These people were in need of better transport service to attend to their day-to-day activities, he said.

He added that the five buses, fitted with those engines, would be operated from the temporary camps to the resettled villages. The displaced people would find it easy to travel without congestion, he said.

The cost of the repair of the emgines was Rs. 500,000/= He said he was glad to see the Jaffna depot earning a substantial revenue. Provision of a better transport service connecting the North and the East was one of his dreams and it had now materialized, he said.
