The people of this country have inherited malnutrition, said Leader of the Opposition Sajith Premadasa.
Speaking on the Day 04 of the “Manushyathwaye Charikawa” initiative undertaken by the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) to address the hassles faced by the general public at Suriyawewa town today (29), the Opposition Leader pointed out that in a country where malnutrition has become prevalent the record of low weight babies at birth has grown bigger.
The opening of the Samagi Tharuna Balawegaya office at Suriyawewa inaugurated by Subhaka Pradeep, Leader of the Opposition of the Suriyawewa Pradeshiya Sabha and Member of the Working Committee of the Samagi Tharuna Balawegaya, was carried out under the patronage of Mr. Premadasa.
The current regime had secured its victory through religionism, nationalism and lies, the Opposition Leader pointed out, adding that it continues to promote such ideologies dismissing the true values of Buddhism.
In a matter of two years, the government on one hand has turned the country into a pool of tears and on the other, a land of darkness, Premadasa noted. He also stressed that today the country is suffering from famine and the national resources are being sold.
The Opposition Leader talked to the traders and the town folk and distributed the leaflet distributed mentioning “Family Governance – Destruction of the Country.”
