“There are no Sri Lankan Tamils, Sri Lankan Muslims or Sri Lanka Sinhalese. There is only one nationality in our country. It is Sri Lankan because this country belongs to all of us. This is the message that should be carried forward by our younger generation,” Commander Security Forces - Jaffna (SF-J) Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe said addressing a gathering of teachers, students, parents and education officials in Jaffna on Monday (25) attending a function at J / Thelippalai Mahajana College.

The function was organized to hand over a stock of furniture worth over Rs. 1.35 million to the college. The donation included 300 student chairs, 300 student desks, 25 chairs and 25 tables for teachers.

The donation came to the college by renowned businessman and philanthropist Deshamanya Ken Balendra at request of Commander SF-J Major General Hathurusinghe.

Responding to a request of Secretary to the Ministry of Defence and Urban Development Mr. Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, Deshamanya Ken Balendra donated Rs. 24 million to construct a three-storied building to the Mahajana College recently. Constructions were completed by the soldiers serving in Jaffna within 9 months. Commitment and efficiency of soldiers saved more than Rs. 1 million of the estimated cost.

At request of Maj. Gen. Hathurusinghe, Deshamanya Ken Balendra spent that saving to purchase those desks, tables and chairs for the school.

Sathyaseelan, General Officer Commanding Brigadier Piyal Wickramarathne, Commander 515 Brigade Brigadier Buwaneka Randeniya, Zonal Director of Education Valikamam Mr. Rajendran, Principal of Mahajana College Mr. Velsivanathan and former Principal Mrs. Ananthsayanan were also present.
