Mega Polis and Western Province Development Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka is scheduled to unveil 100 development projects in the Western Province on January 8 to coincide with President Maithripala Sirisena’s first anniversary in office, Minister Ranawaka told the Daily Mirror.
The Ministry is to channel huge amounts of funds and harness the best technology and human resources towards this effort which is going to be Sri Lanka’s biggest ever development plan in the 21st century, Minister Ranawaka said.
Among the projects would be an airport city between Katunayake and Minuwangoda and a technology city from Malabe to Homagama.
The projects are also slated to launch to relocate shanty dwellers and re-plan poorly planned urban areas.
Minister Ranawaka said the development projects had been planned in keeping in the ever growing urban population and also the rural sectors in view.
“These projects will ensure a giant leap forward in Sri Lanka’s journey towards a smart, sustainable Sri Lanka” the Minister added.(Sandun A Jayasekera)

At least some one is doing something. All the others are talking. Champika has done well in all his previous ministries. He is the man to take our country to the next level of development

hundred development projects in one go...tall order but I think Champika knows what he is talking. we have ideological differences with him but never had any doubts about his efficiency.he should be the next president.

Very good plans. Unfortunatley, to execute them you will have to overcome the National problem of Strikes, Malpractices, corruption and stupid protests. Good luck!
