Dr. Kavinda J says he’s more matured after hustings

By Lal Gunesekera

Dr. Kavinda Jayawardana, who came second in the Gampaha District from the UNP with 41,654 votes at the WPC election behind Harshana Rajakaruna (51,018) said that he was a more matured person now having made his debut in politics. The people who had shown their gratitude to his father, the late Dr. Jayalath Jayawardana, had reposed their trust in him, he added.

He said as a doctor he would help develop the free health care system in the district and Western Province which lacked hospital beds, medicines and even doctors. He said it would be his duty to assist the poor patients and look after their needs at Ragama and Negombo hospitals.

Dr. Jayawardana said that he was also planning to address the educational needs which were greatly felt in the district where there was a lot of malnourishment.

The UNP could not do much as regards employment generation the district, but they would attempt to pressure the government to address the unemployment issue.
