The government has taken measures to bring all districts under an accelerated development program in order to make Sri Lanka a wonder of Asia, said Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa when he addressed a meeting of the Kandy District Co-ordinating Committee at the Kandy District Secretariat auditorium yesterday.
He said it was the duty of all public servants to find urgent solutions to people’s problems. Certain public officials took a lackadaisical approach towards solving people’s problems and such attitudes would only retard development, he said. Minister Rajapaksa also emphasised the need for all State institutions to co-ordinate their activities to uplift the living conditions of the people.
