Robust development now than last 14-year period


Highways and Road Development Minister Kabir Hashim said the government has done more development work than during the 14-year period of Mahinda Rajapaksa.“During his entire term, only 169 meters of highway were constructed whereas during our three years in power, the government constructed 219 kilometers of highway,” the minister said.

The minister said it is by comparing and contrasting that people can truly see the correct picture. The construction work of 3.5 kilometer-long Gadaldeniya – Paranapattiya Road in the Udunuwara electorate commenced last week, he said.
