The Expenditure Heads of the Minister of Housing and Construction was debated in Parliament on Wednesday.

Minister of Housing and Construction, Sajith Premadasa noted:

The  Dhammapada states that one shouldn’t waste time worrying about the things that were done or not done by others, rather concentrate on the deeds done by oneself, and try to improve on the good deeds, and discard the bad ones.

The Minister further noted:

The Ministry of Housing and Construction is one that has a future vision and many consider the golden era of the housing sector to be the time when my father, the late Ranasinghe Premadasa, was in power. And when Wimal Weerawansa was the Minister, a very important programme, the National Housing Policy was launched. Therefore we hope to continue this journey, by taking the positive aspects of that housing policy, and filling the gaps.

He added:

Whatever you do, do it in a manner that brings you happiness and satisfaction. So do not do anything that you will regret later, and likewise my Ministry will follow the teachings of this Dhammapada, and will bring joy and happiness to the 5.1 million families, or 20 million people of this country.
