‘Over 5,000 houses built for War Heroes’

Over 5,000 houses have been built by the Defence Ministry along with the Seva Vanitha Units of the Defence Ministry and Three Forces, with labour assistance by Security Forces personnel. These houses have been distributed among War Heroes and many houses are in the process of being constructed, Media Centre for National Security (MCNS) Director General Lakshman Hulugalle said at a special press briefing at the MCNS yesterday.

“Housing projects commenced in 12 districts by the Defence Ministry to felicitate War Heroes under the theme Api Wenuwen Api have been completed. Measures have also been taken by the Defence Ministry

to construct these houses in all districts under the directions of Defence and Urban Development Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa,” he added.

“Sri Lanka has not encountered the type of post- conflict problems faced by other nations, as such, we have the capability to deploy our Security Forces personnel to the country’s national development effort,” Hulugalle said.

The MCNS Director General said the government has given pride of place to the welfare of Security Forces personnel. President Mahinda Rajapaksa has paid special attention to the War Heroes and their families and has been clearly mentioned it in the “Mahinda Chinthana” Future Vision programme.

“We will always salute our War Heroes and never forget the sacrifices they have made for the country and people, by defeating terrorism,” he said.

“We have made all arrangements to look in to the welfare of the families of War Heroes”, he said.
