President Gotabaya Rajapaksa has categorically directed that officials with decision making powers must attend District and Regional Development Committee meetings to implement people-centric projects. The President stated that from the outset of the “Discussion with the Village” programme, he had realized that the lack of proper involvement of responsible officials was the main reason for the delay in implementing useful projects, and the loss of benefits to the people. The President noted that the people are suffering due to the endless tug of war between the officials, respective institutions and the people’s representatives. President Rajapakse re-iterated the need for the responsible officials of all key institutions including wildlife, forest conservation, environment and road development to make collective decisions in the implementation of projects.
The Head of State made these remarks participating in the 11th “Discussion with the Village” programme at the Nelumwewa Community Hall premises in the Paligama Grama Niladhari Division of the Karuwalagaswewa Divisional Secretariat Division in the Puttalam District.
