President Maithripala Sirisena on Saturday said a gazette notification will be issued under existing laws to give all private lands which are not cultivated to those who are willing to cultivate them. He said all government’s lands also will be cultivated in relation to this program.



He said that decision will be taken under the Vaga Sangramaya program to be launched next month to increase the food production by bringing the drought affected lands to the normal conditions.

I will provide solutions for the problems when fulfilling the people’s requirements”, the President stated. He said the people of Polonnaruwa voted for him without any division of the political parties or colours. He added he would fairly provide the opportunities of the development to all, without any political divisions.



 “The responsibility of the current government is not to pay attention on the undue allegations and criticisms of the political rivals in this democracy ensured by the government, but to fulfill our responsibility,” he emphasized.

The Pradeshiya Sabha building which has every required facility, has been built at a cost of Rs.7000000, with the objective of performing rural administrative work strongly and efficiently.



The President who arrived in the Pradeshiya Sabha premises engaged in religious activities in the Buddha mandiraya there. He then unveiled the plaque and vested the building with public. He also planted a Na sapling in the Pradeshiya Sabha premises.
