One should go into the field to develop the nation without depending on propaganda, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said.

The Prime Minister expressed this sentiment at a ceremony organised to distribute lands in Nikaweratiya.

“One cannot achieve development by erecting cut-outs and media campaigns. It can only be achieved by visiting the electorates,” he said.

He said the government had been able to bring about economic stability despite various difficulties.

"We will settle more debts this year. Accordingly, a total sum of $ 5600 million will be settled in 2019,” he said.

The Prime Minister said the government’s development work will progress on three different lines. These, he said, will be peace and reconciliation, economic development through competitiveness and social development.

He also said the North Western province will soon see more development with the opening of the economic zone in Bingiriya, Central Highway and through tourism development.(Yohan Perera)

    Propaganda plays a decisive role with brainless electors of Sri Lanka; mind you? Mahinda knows that for sure.

    Are you referring to Sajith? Explain to the public apart from settling debt what else have you done? Did the public voted you to settle the dept? You do this as a favor to Sri Lanka or the foreign countries? I voted for you but did not see any visible development?

    Cut outs or no cut outs there won't be development as long as you are PM.

    It ia ironic that someone who delivered no development, negligible GDP growth and whose multiple defended friend participated in two bond scams, is offering advice
