  • Authorities instructed to take steps to address the shortage of teachers in the district
  • Addresses need for several infrastructure facilities in the area


President Gotabaya Rajapaksa instructed the Army to commence the development of the playground of Kotawehera Mankada Maha Vidyalaya at the request of the students. The President was also concerned about constructing an auditorium for the school.

Aluthwewa village which is about 100 km from the Moneragala town, was selected for the 8th program of the “Discussion with the Village”. Aluthwewa is bordered by the villages Kotawehera Mankada, Wellawaya, Hambegamuwa and Walawe river and Kandiyapita tank.

Dalukgala, Koratuwewa, Kilimbunna, Millagala, Dahaiyagala, Nabadapalessa and Pokunuthenna areas fall under the Aluthwewa Grama Niladhari Division. 790 families are living in Aluthwewa where the total population is 2,794. Aluthwewa became a settlement in the early 20th century due to the migration of people from the Udawalawe National Park area for hunting and Chena farming. Paddy and Chena farming is the main livelihood of many settlers in the village. Ideas and suggestions of the people are given due consideration in solving their issues. President Rajapaksa emphasised the requirement of people’s representatives, government officials and the rural masses in managing their villages in unison.

It has come to light about the persisting shortage of English teachers in a number of schools on the island. As a remedy, the President instructed the Secretary of Education to expedite the recruitment of English teachers to the respective schools.

  • Authorities instructed to develop roads, by-roads and bridges in the area
