Model Janasabhas, established under the "Janasabha" initiative to ensure regular public participation in policymaking, have been successfully implemented across the island.
This unique public assembly was held today (15) in Valvettithurai, Jaffna
The establishment of the Janasabha was led by Jaffna District Secretary A. Sivabalasuntharam, Jaffna Additional District Secretary M. Prathipan, Divisional Secretary Shanmugaraja Subachelvan and Ravindra Silva from the Jathika JanaSabha Secretariat.
These Janasabhas create physical, human, and other development plans to organize and develop their village (or urban unit). They identify priorities, resources, needs, and grievances to act as a formal management mechanism.
Furthermore, Janasabhas are empowered to function independently as living structures driving the village's economic, social, cultural revival and development.
This system empowers people and opens space for national development through individual development, accelerating rural progress.
