    In that case Katunayake Highway was executed by UNP, Southern Highway, Kerawala Pitiya, Norochcholey, Nelum Pokuna all by Chandrika.

    Need of the hour. Good decision. These are true developments as per real needs, unlike Hambantota Convention Hall, Cricket Grounds, Air port and Nelum Kuluna etc.
