Indian High Commissioner opens India-funded buildings at Kilinochchi campus

Indian government-funded buildings for the University of Jaffna’s Kilinochchi branch were declared open by the Indian High Commissioner on Friday.

The buildings for the University’s Faculty of Agriculture and Faculty of Engineering, which are based in Kilinochchi, were constructed at a cost of 550 million rupees, as part of an agreement between the governments of India and Sri Lanka signed in 2014.

Also as part of the programme during his visit to the Northern Province, High Commissioner, Taranjit Singh Sandhu donated almost 16000 books to the Jaffna Public Library. See here for more.

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.

Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
