Dinesh Gunawardena, Minister of Public Administration and Home Affairs, Provincial Councils and Local Government says that the ancient agricultural civilization of the country should be re-established and a surplus of local produce should be created and set an example to other countries in the world.
“We need to re-establish our old agricultural civilization. In the past, Sri Lanka was a model country in agricultural production for other countries. Our garden should be enriched with local crops. At the same time, every home garden should be encouraged to cultivate local medicinal plants and all youth and school children should be encouraged to do so and strengthen those programs. ”
The Minister said this addressing a function held at the Gorakapitiya Grama Niladhari Office.
