The Uthuru Wasanthaya programme is currently being successfully implemented under the direct supervision of the head of the Task Force, Senior Presidential Advisor and Parliamentarian Basil Rajapaksa. Our Representative Ranjith Jayasundera said that the people who were rescued from the terrorist grip are currently being resettled amongst all facilities. Various programmes are being implemented to uplift their normal lives. They have already ventured into cultivation and the government has allocated an area of 1000 acres for this purpose. More than 300 thousand people are living in the welfare villages of Vavuniya. A majority of them are farmers. They are engaged in vegetable and fruit cultivation as well. The farmers will soon be able to reap their harvests. The Uthuru Wasanthaya provides the infrastructure for this purpose. One farmer said that they have recently arrived here and their lives have become more successful than they expected. They are happy about it and believe that the President and the government will look after them well. They are ready to extend any assistance towards development.
