The people of Damanayaya who were shackled by the lack of a road, will soon be able to move freely.
News 1st has been working relentlessly to complete work on the Damanayaya – Alakolawewa Road as part of the Gammedda 100-day initiative which was launched to fulfill the needs of people who have suffered neglect and destitution in the face of false political promises.
While construction of the two-kilometre long drains on either side of the road has been completed, gravel has been laid on a one and a half kilometre stretch of the road.
The following is a News1st special report on a community, much like Damanayaya, have stretched out their hands seeking assistance.
The agrarian community of Watamada in Hambegamuwa do not have large auditoriums to hold farmers’ meetings and to develop the skills of their children.
The only community hall in the area has been abandoned and its roof is in a state of extreme disrepair. “When the elections draw near the MPs and Ministers come and ask for all sorts of powers from us. They would even stand under a tree to make all sorts of promises,” lamented a villager.
The people of the village who did not have a community hall for over ten years now conduct their gatherings at the village temple.
