Future generations will benefit from our development projects – Mahinda Rajapaksa

by time news

Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa has said that the well-governed government did not use the Mattala airport for economic development but stockpiled paddy in retaliation against the Rajapaksas.

Accelerated under the “Prosperity Vision Policy”, the project was launched during Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa’s presidency. The good governance government had stopped the project altogether. Accordingly, the project was re-launched in 2020 and is open to the public today.

Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa said this while addressing the opening ceremony of the new runway and runway constructed under the Bandaranaike International Airport Development Project.

He continued,

The new runway and runway have been constructed with the full support of the Airport and Air Services Company under the full financial support of the Japan International Cooperation Agency.

The airport development project was then planned to be completed in two phases. The good governance government that came to power in 2015 did not go ahead with the plan as planned.

Our government came to power and the first phase of work started in March 2020.

We have closed airports in the past due to the safety of the people in the wake of the corona epidemic. Inter-country transport was halted and tourist arrivals to our country were halted.

Our ministers did not allow the airport development to be halted as the tourism industry was in decline. The Minister of Tourism has taken steps to ensure the health security of the people and to create an environment conducive to the advancement of tourism better than ever before.

Our government has acted with foresight in all cases when it came to power.

On that day we prepared the basic background of the airport development project under the Mahinda Chinthana program and took it to the level of implementing the project.

This time he said he would expedite the Katunayake airport development project through the Prosperity Vision Policy presented by President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa.

Just like delivering on our promises, we also show that our government will keep its promises when it comes to power. He said that all our development projects will benefit our future generations.
