President Rajapaksa: Expedite Work on the Northern Expressway
President Mahinda Rajapaksa requested that the work on the northern expressway be expedited when he met with a delegation from the China Merchants Group (CMG) headed by the company president, Mr. Li Jianhong, yesterday (Aug. 05) at Temple Trees.
Indicating the current level of development taking place in the north, President Rajapaksa stressed how important he highway will be for people, making it easier and faster to travel between the north and south.
Also a partner in the Colombo Port Expansion Project, the CMG delegation was in Sri Lanka for the opening of the Colombo Port South Terminal.
“This harbor is very competitive in the South Asian region,” Mr. Jianhong said, pointing out that the harbor will not only benefit South Asia but also the wider Asian region.
On the northern expressway project, CMG is now carrying out the feasibility study as well as the preparation of the technical and financial reports. While Mr. Jianhong described how well his company and the Sri Lanka Ports Authority (SLPA) had collaborated on the port project, President Rajapaksa expressed confidence in CMG’s ability to implement work on the expressway as soon as possible.
The Ambassador of China in Sri Lanka Mr. Wu Jianghao and several high-level officials from CMG also joined the discussion with President Rajapaksa.
Secretary to the Ministry of External Affairs Mr. Karunatilaka Amunugama, Secretary to the Ministry of Ports and Highways Mr. R.W.R. Pemasiri and Chairman of the Sri Lanka Ports Authority Dr. Priyath B. Wickrama were also present.

Hey you Ching Chong guys,
Build that road to Yaalpaanam quick so that we can colonise the traditional homelands of the tamils quickly with sinhala peasants and handover governance of the north to BBS.
This got to be done before the International Courts catch up with us for the crimes against humanity from 04 Feb 1948 to 19 May 2009.
Mr Oscar’s racist remarks in Blog 1 throws a spanner in the brilliant initiative of the Rajapaksa regime to open up a democratic framework in the North.
Mr Oscar appears to be the spokesperson of the bearded wizard whose demonstrated intention is to fulfil the dreams of the late Sun God.
I suppose the tamil speaking citizens of our nation will never forget that impossible dream and continue to indulge in “bedumvaadaya” for ever and for ever. They will never appreciate the blood sacrifice of the 27,000 Sinhala Buddhist youth who sacrificed their young lives at the altar to retrieve the Tamil speaking citizens form the ruthless clutches of the late Sun God. They appear to have forgotten the misery caused by the Sun God for three decades under the pretext of providing protection.
On second thoughts, I think we should adopt Mr Oscar’s advise and build that road quickly and facilitate the rights of the peace loving, friendly and caring Sinhala Buddhist to live in any part of the island including the North.
After all, tamil migration to the south of our nation was facilitated by the Yal Devi. Sinhala migration to the north can be boosted by the new road.
