    The result of the mega development in the North and East. Roads to nowhere?

    The only remedy to recurring drought is to turn Mahaweli to Kilinochchi irranamadu Tank and to strengthen the lagoon scheme proposed by Engineer Arumugam.

    China and India could help Sri-Lanka in this gigantic work.
