An express train service between Talaimannar and Colombo will begin from September 15, President Ranil Wickremesinghe said today.

Speaking to the devotees at Madhu Church in Mannar, the President said a TNA MP played a significant role in resuming the express train service.

“I would like to thank TNA MP Charles Nirmalanathan for the role he played in getting the express train service started. I would also like to thank others who worked on the project,” he said.

The President also revealed that the government had approved the setting up of a sugar factory in Wanni.

“TNA MP Selvam Adeikalanathan was instrumental in getting this project on track.

“We have to make use of the sunlight, wind and the trees in this area. Therefore we have begun the initial discussions to start a project to set up solar panels on the Poonaryn tank. The North will be a center of power supply by 2040,” he added.

“Madhu is an indigenous religious festival. Therefore, it can be considered as a national event. The government therefore will assist the church to develop this historic place of worship,” he assured.
