This government will provide solutions to the homeless families in all parts of the country, in the way it solved, in a very short period, the housing problem of the internally displaced persons who suffered immensely due to terrorism, stated President Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday (16) inaugurating the ‘Jana Sevana’ housing project in Kirulapana.
This challenge will soon be overcome in the near future, providing a brighter future for our children, he said.
President added that this housing project is a giant step forward in fulfilling the pledge of Mahinda Chintana to provide a home for every homeless family.
President Rajapaksa stressed that the government will bring prosperity in the country uplifting the lives of the people.
He also said that a safe, secure and healthy environment should be created for a child to grow up and identified permanent shelter as a key component in the process.
"It would uplift living standards and create an educated and disciplined society. This in turn would contribute positively to the country's overall growth", he observed.
One million houses would be constructed under this ‘Jana Sewana’ project, throughout the island in the next 6 years. The first phase of this project comprising 560 houses commenced at Mihindupura, Kirulapana.
