Public to rake in benefits soon: Akila

The general public would soon be able to rake in the benefits of the Gamperaliya and Enterprise Sri Lanka development programmes spearheaded by the United National Party (UNP), Education Minister Akila Viraj Kariyawasam said.

He was addressing a meeting of people's representatives held at the UNP Headquarters at Pita Kotte, on August 8. All UNP Councillors attached to municipal councils, urban councils and other local councils attended the meeting.

Minister Kariyawasam said the UNP had already played a major role towards establishing good governance as well as protecting democracy in the country. Although the government had already rendered a great service towards the country and its people, its message had not been carried to the people through the media.

The Samurdhi assistance programme, which was improper and seething in corruption during the previous regime, had been reorganised and formalised to increase relief afforded to the underprivileged masses, he said.
