A special meeting was held today to discuss and implement a mechanism to renovate the property that was destroyed in Kalutara and Beruwala

The discussion was held in the Kalutara District Secretariat office.

Minister of Resettlement, Gunarathna Weerakoon expressed the following thoughts:

[quote]If a vehicle was set ablaze it is not our concern. What needs to be done by the district secretary and the army, with this allocation of 200 million is to renovate the property without providing money directly to the people. The army comprises of a disciplined labour force. They work accurately, they are not like the workers that we use. We had a few shortcomings when we were working with the Housing Development Authority. I believe that this venture that is being carried out by us together with the army and the other forces will be a resounding success[/quote]
Minister of Fisheries and Aquatic Resource Development, Rajitha Senaratne shared these views:

[quote]All I am asking for is the implementation of the rule of law. Buildings can be rebuilt, but it is much more difficult to mend a broken heart. The only way to do this is by bringing the perpetrators to book. This will provide them with some mental relief. Then we can being to mend these broken hearts. There isn’t anyone here who set fire to shops, or who got beaten up .[/quote]
