Former MP and Leader of the EPRLF, Suresh Premachandran had insisted with the Tamil Parliamentarians, the CM and Members of NPC to insist with Ranil to convert Palaly Air Port into a Regional Air Port, when they meet him.
Ranil is to participate in the DDC meetings for Jaffna and Kilinochchi Districts and review the development projects.
As far as the Northern Province is concerned, some roads have been constructed and some development projects undertaken after this government had taken over.
But what we primarily expect is that through upgrading the Palaly Air Port as a Regional Airport, employment opportunities will develop. Further, progress will be found in business activities. Employment opportunities for our people will increase in several sectors. All together, it will be a boost to the Tourist Sector.
India had already promised to assist the conversion of Palaly Air Port into a Regional Air Port.
Hence the MPs and CM who will meet Ranil should emphasize that priority should be given to this proposal
