Aug 02, Colombo: President Gotabaya Rajapaksa said this year’s budget will allocate funds to solve the drinking water problem faced by the people in many districts.

“During my tour across the country in the last 2-3 weeks, one of the major issues I was presented by the people is the scarcity of drinking water. This issue was discussed with the Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa as well. Lack of drinking water is an issue which needs immediate attention and plans have been set in motion to address it,” the President added.

President Rajapaksa made these remarks during his campaign tour of the Badulla district on Saturday in support of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) candidates in the upcoming general election.
