Plantation Industries Minister Naveen Dissanayake’s programme last evening in the Nandimitragama in Vavuniya was interrupted by a smoke that engulfed the area.

A group of people have set fire to a forest area near the festival site which caused the excessive smoke interrupting the programme.

The ceremony was organized to distribute coconut palm trees to the residents of the resettled village of Nandimitragama.

Due to the smoke, the ceremony which was to be held at 3:00 pm was delayed by over an hour, and the Minster was also inconvenienced by the smoke emanating from the fire.

At the time of the fire, the organizers of the event and the residents of the area tried to extinguish the fire, but were unsuccessful due to the prevailing dry winds.
