The Monaragala District Development Co-ordination Committee meeting was held under the auspices of President Mahinda Rajapaksa on Sunday.  The meeting was held at the auditorium of the District Library.

A group including public officials, MPs and ministers attended the Development Co-ordination Committee Meeting.

Speaking at the meeting, the  President expressed the following views.

“We have carried out the responsibility that was entrusted to us. At times, some people come here to look at the development. Please bring these people who come to look into development and show them what has been done in the Monaragala District and let them examine it. These people have already inspected the harbour in Hambantota, the Airport and Norochcholai as well.”

He added: ” I believe they are doing this to assess how much they can sell it for. We took back everything that was privatised. Sevanagala and Pelawaththa too were sold. I beg your pardon, it was not sold, it was given free to certain persons. The profits made over several years from these were not given to the people. For several years. Today, the people are reaping the benefits from these institutions. The farmers are reaping the benefits and so is the general populace.”
