Estate children equipped with IT:

New technology for estate sector

The Government is ready to provide new technological vistas to the people in the Estate sector who were destined to pluck tea leaves and prepare rotti, said President Mahinda Rajapaksa, addressing an election rally organized by Minister Arumugam Thondaman at the Kotagala PS grounds yesterday.

The President said the children in the Estate sector are being equipped with IT knowledge to stand on par with the students in foreign countries.

He said the dividends of development should go to all parts of the country equally.

“We are ready to provide the latest technological know-how to the people in the Estate sector who are playing a pivotal role in strengthening our economy,” he said.

While commending the services of late Minister Saumyamurthi Thondaman and Minister Arumugam Thondaman to uplift of living standards of the people in the Estate sector, the President said the Government is always ready to lend an ear to the problems of Trade Unions.

He said the Government is willing to discuss the issues and the problems faced by the working class.

The President added the Government cannot accept the conduct of certain trade unions which have deviated from their original policy of serving their fellow members.

He said this type of Trade Unions are betraying the working masses to achieve narrow and petty political gains.

The President said the Government has upgraded the infrastructure facilities in the Estate sector during the past four years. The Government was able to uplift the living condition of Estate workers and these programs are continuing unabated, he said.
