Deputy Minster Vijith Vijithamuni has said that the Government is launching a programme to provide maximum relief to the people by increasing employment opportunities amidst the development battle.
He said that Government is embroiled in a battle to control the commodity price. It is evident to the people. He asked whether the UNP Government has ever made an attempt to import goods or use the Army to help the poor masses. The Government is focusing on a massive programme that would provide more employment opportunities and improve production in the future. The Deputy Minster expressed this view while participating in the SLFP restructuring programme in the Bibila Electorate. He pointed out that rubber, tea, maize and other agricultural produce will be provided a higher price to strengthen the rural economy. Parliamentarian Vijitha Berugoda was those amongst those who participated in the occasion.
