Minister made these observations at a tour made in the Delft Island during an official visit to Vavuniya and Jaffna.
Speaking further, Minister Karunanayake said,
"Our main objective is to generate renewable electricity for this island while addressing on other infrastructure deficiencies. About 4500 people live in the island, and there is a problem of connecting with the national grid. Hence, we have given thoughts to promote renewable energy sources and we are now studying on that.
