The families of those killed and injured in the ferry accident on Kurinjankarni Lagoon in Kinniya were granted financial assistance under the patronage of Leader of the Opposition Sajith Premadasa yesterday (04).
Among the victims of the Ferry Accident occurred on November 23, 2021 were school children.
Speaking to the occasion, the Opposition Leader pointed out that futuristic plans are needed to build a country and that in implementation, the most sensitive needs should be addressed first, preventing unwanted tragedies.
The construction of the Kurinjankarni Ferry, which took away many lives, is still being stalled because it was a bridge born out of the “Twentieth Amendment,” Premadasa said, mocking the government.
The Opposition Leader attended the event while launching a number of programmes in the North and East, including the “Sakwala” Program and the “Samagi Jana Balawegayen Husmak” Initiative undertaken by the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB).
