The Government is planning to renovate several tanks that supply water to Batticaloa.

Many tanks and reservoirs in the District were destroyed due to the terrorist activities in the past. Minister Nimal Siripala de Siva said that those tanks and reservoirs had to be renovated to develop agriculture. He said that financial allocations will also be made in this connection. The Minister also inspected a number of irrigation projects including Poonai and Unnachchi in Batticaloa. He also participated in a special meeting held at Chenkaladi to look into the problems faced by the farming community in the area. Chief Minster of the Eastern Province Sivanesathurai Chandrakanthan also participated in the occasion.
