PM to assess relief efforts in the North
Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe will engage in religious observances at the Temple of the Tooth Relic today.
The Office of the Prime Minister said he will subsequently call on the Chief Prelates of the Malwathu and Asgiri Chapters to seek their blessings.
Premier Wickremesinghe will later travel to Kilinochchi to review relief distribution efforts in the area, following the inclement weather that has displaced thousands.
Minister of Home Affairs and Local Government and Provincial Councils Wajira Abeywardene said the Prime Minister will mainly focus on compensation schemes for the public in the Northern Province.
The Minister said further steps will be determined based on a comprehensive damage assessment report.
