The benefits of peace reach Jaffna while the lives are returning to normalcy.
The high security zones that were maintained in Jaffna and the surrounding areas have been removed and people are provided the opportunity to resettle. The people arrive in the Jaffna town from various areas for their daily businesses. Jaffna Commander Major Gen. Mahinda Haturusinghe has said that organized groups are attempting to create a misleading image in the international arena, although the people are leading peaceful lives.
The Jaffna Commander said that the Jaffna people are aware of the immense efforts made by the Government to establish peace and carry out the other programmes. He said that certain minor groups are making these attempts for their own benefit. He said that these efforts will not be successful as the Jaffna citizens are highly intelligent. The Security forces and the Government have jointly provided facilities for the people including the fisher folk to start their livelihoods once again.
