NPC commences Maaveerar Naal remembrance with tree-planting

Commemorations leading up to Maaveerar Naal have commenced in the Tamil homeland, starting with the planting of trees in Mannar.

Launched last year by the Northern Provincial Council to the honour those who died fighting in the Tamil struggle, the initiative began with special prayers at Thiruketheeswaram Kovil.

This year’s tree planting was inaugurated by NPC agriculture minister K. Sivanesan in the Sivapuram village of Thiruketheeswaram.
