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 the community.

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 added.
