Sasidaran calls for boycott of JITF Featured

The northern provincial council should boycott the Jaffna International Trade Fair (JITF) that begins tomorrow (26), says northern provincial council minister Anandi Sasidaran.

Speaking to the media yesterday, Sasidaran charged the trade fair would serve the needs of the Colombo-based companies only and also swindle money from the province’s people.

Most of the participants are multinational companies of India, she said, adding the NPC should not support the event, in light of the fact that India was not interested in getting the Tamils’ question resolved.

Organized by Lanka Exhibition and Conference Services (Pvt.) Ltd., the exhibition will take place until January 28 at Jaffna municipal stadium.
