Namal urges President to announce govt’s programme to relieve people affected by dry weather

Ruling Party MP Namal Rajapaksa urged President Ranil Wickremesinghe and his Cabinet to announce the government’s programme to give relief to people affected by the dry spell and those in need of water for cultivation.

Addressing the meeting of his party’s electoral organisation, he said people had been hard- hit by the prolonged dry spell.

“We only appointed this president. Therefore, we should question him and his Cabinet about the programme to give relief to these people. Farmers in the eastern, southern, north-central and north-western provinces have been affected,” he said.

He said the president attended the global climate summit and developed ties with the respective countries.

“We should explore what kind of help can be obtained from such countries at this hour,” he said.

Also he asked Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa and JVP leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake to stand up for joint efforts to address the issues rather than indulging in typical oppositional politics.

“We are politically divided. Yet, we have to face natural challenges together. As such we need to work out a plan for water management, power generation and development of agro-productivity,” he said.
