President completes four years in office

[January 09 2019]

President Maithripala Sirisena vested the new Laggala green town in the people yesterday, on the fourth anniversary of his being sworn in as head of state.

The old Laggala town was submerged due to the construction of the Moragahakanda-Kalu Ganga Multi-Purpose Development Project.

This ceremony marked the beginning of the fifth year of cultural and economic renaissance under the Maithri Palanayak - Thirasara Yugayak (Maithri administration and sustainable era).

The Laggala green town was built at a cost of Rs.4,500 million with most modern facilities for the people who were displaced due to the Moragahakanda-Kalu Ganga Multi-Purpose Development Project.

This town has been designed in compliance with the new urban development concepts to suit the future needs of the people.

The town is another benefit of the Moragahakanda-Kalu Ganga Multi-Purpose Development Project, which is the brainchild of President Sirisena.

The Moragahakanda-Kalu Ganga project is the largest multi-purpose development project in the country.

The new town encompassing an area of 75 hectares houses 26 state institutions, including a divisional secretariat, police station, unit management office, cooperative building complex and Pradeshiya Sabha building.

The President also vested the new Laggala hospital and the Laggala school in the people yesterday.
