COLOMBO (News 1st) – President Maithripala Sirisena declared open the new Laggala town in line with the 4th anniversary of being sworn in as the head of state.

The old Laggala town was submerged by the Kalu Ganga Reservoir due to the construction of the Moragahakanda-Kalu Ganga Multi-Purpose Development Project.

The new town was constructed for the people who lost their land and property to the Multi-Purpose Development Project. It has been designed according to the modern urban park concept with a total investment of Rs. 4.5 billion.

In celebration of this momentous occasion, an overnight pirith chanting ceremony also took place last night at the President’s office to invoke blessings on the country.
