PM focuses on affected tea smallholders

Tea smallholders should be provided facilities to transport their tea leaves to the factories by rehabilitating the roads damaged due to the recent disaster situation, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said.

He made these remarks addressing a discussion held at Palindanuwara Divisional Secretariat yesterday (15th June) following his observation visit to affected areas.

 

He pointed out that the small tea estates and the connecting road network should be repaired immediately to build the rural economy as it will directly result in boosting the national economy.

 

The Premier who emphasized the importance of establishing a special program to provide relief to the affected people also instructed to immediately rebuild the destroyed lands, houses, hospitals, and schools.
