563 Brigade Troops in Shramadana Link New Road with Kokeliya

Troops serving 563 Brigade under 56 Division with the support of the public living in Kokeliya recently launched a Shramdana campaign and opened up a new motorable road between Kokeliya and Pudiyasinnakulam.

General Officer Commanding, Brigadier N.A.P.C Napagoda alongside villagers and his troops started off the Shramdana campaign early in the morning and completed the road-making before dusk after both Kokeliya and Pudiyasinnakulam were linked together.

The former road remained completely inundated with wild bushes and dense jungles after its use was abandoned about two decades ago with the escalation of LTTE terrorism.
