Thu, Dec 6, 2012, 12:49 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 06, Colombo: Deputy Leader of Sri Lanka’s main opposition United National Party (UNP) Sajith Premadasa says the government has failed to honor any of the promises since 2005.

Premadasa told the media that the government has not implemented the promises made in the Mahinda Chintana and the Mahinda Chintana Future Vision manifestoes and the government has misled the people through its housing policy.

He explained that President Mahinda Rajapaksa had initially promised to build 25 houses in every village each year and the Housing Minister has promised to build one million houses through the Jana Sevana housing programme.

However, he pointed out that these are unrealistic targets given by the government to mislead the people.

According to Premadasa, the government in order to fulfill its promise to the people would have to build 166,666 houses every year from 2010-2016, which amounts to 13,888 houses every month and 462 houses every day.
