Heavy vehicles and generators sent to the North at LTTE’s request
[January 18, 2005 - 4.00 GMT]

At the request of the LTTE a fleet of pick up trucks and tractors and other equipment, have been sent to the North. President Chandrika Kumaratunga directed the Ministry of Rehabilitation to dispatch these requirements without delay.

The Rehab Ministry has already purchased and dispatched a stock of pick up trucks, tractors, generators and water pumps to tsunami affected areas in the North East.

Further the Ministry in association with the UNDP has placed newspaper advertisements calling for quotations to rent more heavy machinery and equipment. These too will be utilized for debris clearance and reconstruction in the affected areas, particularly in the North and East where such equipment is in short supply.
