Opposition United National Party (UNP) Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe visited Meeriyabedda in Koslanda this morning and met the landslide victims. He was accompanied by a group of senior UNPers.

 

They distributed essential items to the displaced people being sheltered in the camps.

 

Mr. Wickremesinghe said a mechanism should be initiated through Parliament and the Provincial Council to set up a housing scheme for the poor estate workers instead of line-rooms.

 

He requested that a day of mourning be declared in memory of those who had died in one of the biggest tragedies to hit Sri Lanka after the 2004 tsunami.  Mr. Wickremesinghe urged the people to hoist a white flag on the day of mourning. (Ariyaratne Ranabahu)

    Poor estate labour needs good housing and care. They toil hard for the boost of Srilankan economy. Unfortunately, the labour unions and political parties hoodwink these ignorant people to gather the votes and survive from their subscription too. High time some party or group honestly works toward their betterment.

    Fully agree for a national mourning day as suggested by Hon, Ranil Wickramasinhhe.

    These innocent, poor people should have had the housing scheme UNP leader proposes long ago. Unfortunately, nothing tangible was done to these workers after their venerated leader died. His successors only fattened themselves betraying them. Their only hope now is RW!

    Smelling politricks. Everyone I the country know that these estate plantation workers be built decent houses. But, who is doing it?? Big talks only.

    RW is gradually improving and has done a wise thing in visiting the disaster area. Normally he would have been galavanting abroad in such times via DM Android App

    Opposition Leader and deputy leader must visit North Central Province ,there are many Kidney and cancer patients.

    It is good that all get together and do. However, MR has taken some steps and Opposition easily tell but not having responsibility.

    The housing problem of the plantation workers needs a quick solution. All people in Sri Lanka agree that they deserve a better quality life.Unfortunately nobody cares
