57 Div New Admin Complex Opened

The newly-built administrative complex of the 57 Division within precincts of the Kilinochchi town was opened recently by Major General Nandana Udawatte, Commander, Security Forces, Kilinochchi during a brief military ceremony.

The Chief Guest Major General Udawatte on arrival at the premises was received by Brigadier L.N Wickremasuriya, General Officer Commanding, 57 Division and invited to inspect the Guard Turnout, accorded in his honour. Afterwards, the Chief Guest added a symbolic memory to the new complex by planting a mango sapling at the request of the General Officer Commanding.

Afterwards, as the auspicious minute struck, the visiting Kilinochchi Commander lit the traditional oil lamp and inaugurated the new administrative complex, accompanied by a couple of other senior officers. Major General Udawatte in the company of senior officers went round the premises and saw for himself after the inauguration. A table with traditional sweetmeats greeted the invitees afterwards as it is customary on such occasions.

Later on, those serving the 57 Division as a token of memory sat for a group photo with the visiting Kilinochchi Commander.
