The President says that he will not allow downgrading the development of the country under guise of petty personal agendas of some elements

President Maithripala Sirisena says that he will not allow downgrading the development of the country under guise of petty personal agendas of some elements. The president expressed these ideas yesterday inaugurating the cascaded irrigation system renovation programme in Kurunegala. The president pointed out that Sri Lanka had a significant agricultural system under which villagers gathered together centering the tank in the village.  This process led to create a society based on values and discipline. He also said that the food production programme now underway is aimed at increasing food production and development of villages through the unity among the people as well.
