State Minister on inspection tour in Homagama

Irrigation State Minister Anuradha Jayaratne inspected the Paagama canal in Homagama recently on the invitation of Trade Minister Bandula Gunawardena and considered the ways to rehabilitate the irrigation system in the area.

The State Minister inspected the Weniwelkola anicut as well and instructed the officials to rehabilitate it.

About 400 families depend on agriculture in the surrounding area of the canal.

During the previous years, the relevant authorities had not developed these irrigation systems, the State Minister said.

“The President has instructed to provide the farming community with the necessary support,” he said.

The State Minister urged the official to renovate the canal, anicut and other irrigation facilities in the area soon.
