Several offices of the Divi Neguma Development Department were declared open on Sunday.

The head office of the Divi Neguma Development Department which comes under the purview of the Ministry of Economic Development, was declared open on Sunday by Minister Basil Rajapaksa at Castle Street, Colombo.

The Minister of Economic Development also declared open the zonal office of the Divi Neguma Development Department in Battaramulla.

Speaking at the event, Basil Rajapaksa stated:

“We had to go to court on two occasions because we introduced this through a separate Act. Some did not understand that this was not a traditional department. Those in the court and some trade unions too did not understand that this was a Bhumiputra department, for the people, from the people. No matter who gave the verdict, it was given by people who do our work. This is a department that was brought forth with much pain. There are several mothers here – and mothers know the pain they must undergo to bring forth a person into this world. At the same time, it is also a major happiness for every mother. Even though I am not a mother, as a person who was able to carry out this task, I too am extremely happy today.”
