The UPFA mayoral candidate for the Colombo Municipal Council (CMC), Milinda Moragoda has launched a roadmap to uplift the Muslim community in the Colombo City.

Moragoda has said the roadmap was for the betterment of the Muslim community and that no one would be allowed to violate the rights of any ethnic or religious group in the city.

The mayoral candidate has said the CMC would organize monthly meetings between the Muslims, the security forces and the police in order to resolve any issues they may face with regard to security under his administration.

The other areas highlighted in Moragoda’s roadmap for the Muslims are providing more facilities to issue halal certification for various products, introducing facilities for the Muslims to obtain vocational training, Tamil language training for public servants, prayer facilities for Muslims in state institutions and financial assistance for Muslim widows.
