Parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa has said that the Government has launched a programme to create a young generation strengthened by education and vocational training.
He said that the while the infrastructure including the road network is being developed, the youths are being provided school education and vocational and industrial training. He told the parents that the benefits of development will be received not only by their children but the children yet to be born.
The Parliamentarian expressed this view at the 2010 Colours Award Ceremony of the Kurunegala Maliyadeva Girls School. Outstanding students were presented prizes and certificates. Minister Johnston Fernando, Deputy Minister Jayaratne Herath, Parliamentarian Tharanath Basnayake and Wayamba Province Chief Minister Athula Wijesinghe were among those who participated in the occasion.
