SJB leader Sajith Premadasa has pledged to give an opportunity to estate workers to become owners of small tea holdings as the Prime Minister of a future Samagi Jana Balavegaya (SJB) government.

Mr. Premadasa expressed these views at a meeting held on Wednesday at the DKW Cultural Hall in Hatton organized by the Tamil Progressive Youth Organization to support its three candidates contesting the elections in Nuwara Eliya District.

“Former President Ranasinghe Premadasa granted citizenship to estate workers and ownership of land to these families is essential to attain the state of real citizenship,” Mr. Premadasa said.

“They should also be provided with a better health and education system,” he added. (Ranjith Rajapaksa)

    Every Sinhala Political Party Leader says the same about estate workers' rights for many years. Say this before the election and do the opposite after!

    Do you think srilanka belong to your family and the tea estates your private property? You are simply provoking all citizens and in the meantime exposing your leadership qualities. Give everything free ? I as a proud citizen feel sorry for my motherland Srilanka to have people like you in politics.
