The “Nila Mehewara” Mobile Service Programme was inaugurated in the Polonnaruwa district as per a concept of President Maithripala Sirisena.

The service also organised medical clinics and works to resolve matters surrounding lands. The service also conducts programmes and workshops for the youth on career development.

For a period of a month the service was provided at seven locations in the Polonnaruwa district with the assistance of 53 public institutions, departments and ministries.
