The Launching ceremony of the books titled ‘Mahaweliya-Sanhidiyawe Gangawa’ and ‘95 Pasu Mahaweli’ will be held under the patronage of President Maithripala Sirisena at the BMICH, tomorrow (24).
Even though the Mahaweli Development Project commenced four decades ago, it will continue to enrich the paddies and lives of Sri Lankan farmers for another hundreds of thousands of years, and the incumbent President Maithripala Sirisena rendered a great service in giving Mahaweli project a new vigor.
The ‘95 Pasu Mahaweli’ book has been compiled under the guidance of the Mahaweli Authority, fulfilling the lack of a written publication on the implementation of projects and programmes beyond the accelerated Mahaweli Plan for the last 15 years since 1995.
Dr. M.U.A Tennakoon, a water management specialist and a contributor to the Mahaweli project since 1976 will deliver the keynote address at the event. A large gathering of scholars, artists, university students and professionals will participate in the event.
