Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe vested several development projects that have been implemented at rural level in all sectors in the public on Saturday.

Several development projects in the Moneragala District were declared open by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe on Saturday morning.

To date, 60% of the project has been completed.

Construction work of the Moneragala District Sports Complex was also commenced in parallel.

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe also handed over land title deeds, Samurdhi benefits cards and sports equipment to 100 sports societies at the Monaragala District Secretariat premises.
