President Maithripala Sirisena, while highlighting the fact that Rs.48 million was allocated to construct the official residence of the Polonnaruwa Hospital's Director, stressed the need to have proper management and fiscal policies when spending public funds.

He told the District Development Programme “Pibidemu Polonnaruwa” in Polonnaruwa yesterday that a large morgue was constructed at the Bakamuna Hospital to accommodate 35 bodies.

The President said priority should be given to projects which focus on uplifting the economic status of under privileged people and developing their livelihoods and stressed the need for proper financial discipline and management when planning development projects.

“During the past three years the government has given priority for development projects to uplift economic standards of low-income families, than for mega development projects,” he said. (K.G. Karunaratne)

    Hello Sir, it is cheaper than some of the cars used by your PM and ministers. Enjoy watching the cars that can be seen when cabinet meeting are held. Sir, we are no longer fools and now have a better and longer memory.

    Mr President. How much did the upgrades to your residence cost???

    Martin Milton Saturday, 23 December 2017 04:45 PM

    This person appears to talk so much crap and this is one such instance. The answer never appears to match the problem. It looks as if he has no idea really about what is happening all round him in Sri Lanka. Utter shame. MM
