Mahinda Chinthana addresses all needs of the community
The Mahinda Chinthana National Development goals consist of
development plans for the country, former North Central Province Chief
Minister and North Central Province Chief Ministerial candidate Berty
Premalal Dissanayake said.
He said all possible steps have been taken under the Mahinda
Chinthana concept to achieve a sustainable development and to improve
the livelihood of the community below poverty line.
"We are still constructing school buildings, hospitals and
occupational schemes as we have not achieved our construction targets
yet", Dissanayake added.
President Rajapaksa has focussed special in this regard and
formulated a separate Ministry considering the further development of
the construction industry.
He said that the Construction Training and Development Institute
provides skilled employees to the construction sector. This is part and
parcel for the development of the construction sector and gives
recognition to employees engaged in the construction industry while
confirming their identity, Dissanayake said.
The former Chief Minister Dissanayake was speaking at a workshop
organised by Construction Training and Development Institute for the
masons, technicians, welders and the carpenters in the area at
Medawachchiya Divisional Secretariat Office. He said that President
Mahinda Rajapaksa's election manifesto comprises all essential
development plans in the country. Mahinda Chinthana address all needs of
Dissanayake said as mentioned in the Mahinda Chinthana soon after he
assumed duties as the President he made arrangements to provide
fertiliser to farmers on a subsidised basis. The fertiliser distribution
is continuing without any interruption so far. The fertiliser subsidy is
not only a relief measure but also an infrastructure development effort.
Due to this attempt, the paddy production has increased rapidly
within a short period. Under the Api Wawamu Rata Nagamu project moves
were taken not only for the rice production but also to cultivate other
essential crops to find a solution for the food crisis, Dissanayake
