Minister Basil Rajapaksa has emphasized that it is the President who has a clear awareness of the Village. Joining in a programme telecast live over ITN last night from the Official Residence of the Speaker, the Minister said the people throughout the last six years are clearly aware of it.
The Minister queried as to who had a vision to develop the village. It is the President who had such a vision. At a time when the village was totally neglected programmes such as “Gama Neguma” and “Maga Neguma” were mooted to develop the village while also launching community development projects. The Minister was confident that the people would take a decision on the Government considering these projects. He claimed it was the President who had the required strength and capability to work for the development of the country.
