Permanent solutions are being found to the drinking water shortage in the Hambantota area.
Several water supply projects launched under the guidance of Parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa have already been vested in the people. The other projects are due to be completed this year. The African Development Bank and the Austrian Government are making financial contributions for the projects mooted with the Walawe Ganga as the main water resource base. Namal Rajapaksa visited several areas including Tangalle, Ranna and Angunukolapelessa to inquire into the progress on the construction work of the projects. The water issue will be totally resolved in the Hambantota district with the completion of these projects.
