The Government spends a large amount of money to supply water to the people because provision of pure and safe drinking water to the populace is one of its prime duties and responsibilities, President Mahinda Rajapaksa said.
He made this observation participating in a ceremony at Temple Trees to mark the issuing of a special commemorative stamp to mark the 125th anniversary of the Labugama reservoir and treatment plant yesterday in the presence of a special Hungarian delegation. The Hungarian delegation is here to attend the inauguration of work on the Labugama reservoir and treatment plant with Hungarian government aid today.
