Harsha distributes cement to low income earners of Kotte


 Deputy Minister of External Affairs Dr Harsha de Silva told low income earners of his Sri Jayewardenepura electorate that he was prepared to do everything possible to resolve their housing issues, during a ceremony held last Friday morning (20) at the United National Party office in Nawala.

 Presiding over a ceremony to mark ‘World Habitat Day’ (20) Dr. De Silva also distributed 10 bags of cement each to 70 low-income earning families to get their homes plastered.

The Deputy Minister instructed the officials to identify locations where housing projects could be implemented within the Sri Jayewardenepura Kotte electorate jointly with the Housing Development Authority and submit a report at their earliest.

 "The housing issue is a grave problem to the low-income earners in the Kotte electorate. The 10 bags of cement each distributed today could be only a minor grant. But I am committed to a long term resolution of the housing issue in this electorate," said the Deputy Minister of External Affairs while addressing those gathered at the ceremony.

The Housing Development Authority’s Colombo District Manager R.M. Subasinghe and a group of Kotte Municipal Councillors also attended this event.
