As many as 125 entrepreneurs from Tamil Nadu will be among 400 from the world over, attending the Second International Investor Forum on Eastern Sri Lanka to be held here on January 28 and 29.

Naseer Ahamed, the dynamic Chief Minister of the multi-ethnic Eastern Province, where Tamils form a third of the population, told the Foreign Correspondents Association, that out of the 125 from TN, a hundred are from the Madurai-based Tamil Nadu Chamber of Commerce. There will also be 20 participants from Bangalore and 30 from Delhi and Maharashtra.

Getting the Pune-based poultry giant Venky’s, was a major breakthrough for us. They will be investing in Uppuveli. Other Indian firms are interested in putting up units to make auto parts, solar power equipment and pharmaceuticals,” Ahamed said.

A successful businessman himself, the Chief Minister said that he has got  Colombo to allow the Provincial Council to set up a Board of Investment to give investors all help at a single window. (NIE)

    Cats smacking their lips and praising the virtues of curd!!!! This is the last of Sri Lanka as you see it! With all these Thamil nadu “entrepreneurs’ who don’t know a street corner from a toilet we will really ‘multi- ethnicise the East! When the Sinhala people go to Tamil nadu toilet they beat the hell out of our people- including the monks- on the streets! We are listening to these thieves who are stealing our country from right under our noses. Shame on Ada derana being such mugs ‘reporting’ these trying to make them look like real developmental news! This is an invasion! Someone needs to put a few bullets in the right places get rid of these traitors before they turn all the Sinhalese into refugees!

    Let me thank lankaweb.com for bringing out this news item for it’s readers on the internet.
    The Chief Minister of the Eastern Province should NOT be in
    a hurry to industrialize the Trincomalee/Uppuveli district with Poultry Factory
    Farm facilities or other environmentally disastrous industrial promotion, which
    could bring a few dollars/rupees of gain for the moment but will end up
    destroying the environment of the district and areas where the rural villagers
    have been living in harmony with nature, still not dying by starvation at all,
    by the help of God AllMighty. Bringing a giant India Poultry Company to
    Uppuveli is NOT advisable. Moreover, when the USA, North America and Europe is
    restricting Factory Poultry Farms due to environment, health and cruel factory
    breeding methods, why should Sri Lanka be the dumping grounds for such criminality.
    The area between Trincomalee Town and Pulmoddai is a world class area for
    Tourist and leisure industry, cautiously developed, without disturbing the
    nature and the lifestyle of the rural population. With what VENKY’s will do, it
    will become a disaster to the rural folks and the district. The Chief Minister
    should NOT promote such industries in the Nilaveli, Kuchcheveli and Uppuveli
    districts. It is better to enlist 2500 families in the area, especially in the
    Uppuveli area and promote small poultry backyard projects with a reach of 50 to
    100 birds and the allied support services needed, rather than develop Factory
    Farm Poultry operators line Venky’s in the area.

    I give below some resources
    that will support my opinion/comments on this issue:
    Some leads:
    1. HSI/India’s Managing Director, N. G
    Jayasimha said: “Improper waste management in factory farms have a cascading
    effect on human health and environment. We have asked poultry farms to manage
    poultry effectively but they have made no attempts to improve their practices.
    We applaud the swift action taken by Haryana’s Pollution Control Board and
    strongly urge the other states to follow the lead.”

    2.Poultry facilities are a source of odour and attract flies,
    rodents and other pests that create local nuisances and carry disease. Odour
    emissions from poultry farms adversely affect the life of people living in the
    vicinity. Odour associated with poultry operations comes from fresh and
    decomposing waste products such as manure, carcasses, feathers and bedding/
    litter (Kolominskas et al., 2002; Ferket et al., 2002). On-farm odour is mainly
    emitted from poultry buildings, and manure and storage facilities. Odour from
    animal feeding operations is not caused by a single compound, but is rather the
    result of a large number of contributing compounds including ammonia (NH3),
    volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and hydrogen sulphide (H2S) (IEEP, 2005). Of
    the several manure-based compounds which produce odour, the most commonly
    reported is ammonia. Ammonia gas has a sharp and pungent odour and can act as
    an irritant when present in elevated concentrations.

    3.The poultry
    industry is a major cause of environmental degradation in the United States. It
    kills fish and other wildlife and it makes people sick. In nature chickens and
    turkeys range in small flocks over wide areas contributing to the health and
    beauty of the land. In poultry factory farming, thousands of birds are crammed
    unnaturally into extremely small areas. Filth, ugliness and disease are the
    result of this unwholesome and unnatural confinement of living creatures.

    That’s right Ramanie. I’m surprised why we don’t have a single individual to do that!!

    May be they are all scared of the BS concept called KARMA. When a former Israeli PM tried to betray the country to Arabs not long ago a young man sent him to the Creator. That saved poor Jews in colonization areas. Otherwise they would have become refugees in the ONLY country they have.

  4. Lorenzo Says:

    May be we have to borrow some experts from Pakistan. They have NO FEAR of Endians.

    Pakistan just lost $400 million in sales to SL due to Endia. Can Pakistan continue to make losses because Endia rules SL?

    Soon Endians will BASE themselves in SL and attack Pakistani ships if this govt. continues.
