good job Sir,
those need in the country if your looking for the future of next generation….
It is right and proper that we develop the South. Hambantota is the hometown of the President. It is time we move away from developing only Colombo and Kotte as the old capitals. Colombo has in fact become ‘Tamilised and Islamised’ by the large influx of Tamils and Muslims during the terror years. It has become the de facto capital of the Tamils and not Yalpanam. However, we must not abandon Colombo to them. Sri Lanka is ONE COUNTRY ONE NATION. We will not give an inch away to the Tamil separatists to begin the colonisation of the whole island by the Tamils of Tamil Nadu who consider SL as part of their State from ancient days.
Development in many forms is most welcome for a poor country like Sri Lanka. In developed countries, convention centres are not usually located in those countries’ leaders’ villages or home towns but in socially and commercially viable locations that are decided on after extensive cost-benefit analysis and economic considerations taking into account the demographic profiles and industrial climates. Similar criteria are applied in the locating of transport, sporting and freight facilities. Personalising national development programs is generally not practised in those countries.
