Jaffna is making a new mark for itself, spreading message of peace to the world, says Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

“India is proud to have an opportunity to establish a unique and world-level cultural centre in Jaffna,” he said, addressing a gathering at Jaffna Public Library after laying the foundation stone for the iconic Jaffna Cultural Centre.

When a library is established, a place where books can be found, it unites the generations, he said.

Before arriving in Jaffna, the Indian Prime Minister inaugurated the Talaimannar pier railway station and flaged off Talaimannar- Madhu train. India was involved in the construction of the railway track.

Modi says he is confident that the Talaimannar Railway project will give pace to the development of the area.   

Modi  became the first Indian Prime Minister and only the second foreign leader after British Premier David Cameron to visit Jaffna in the Northern province, where he will hand over homes built with the help of Indian assistance.
