Deputy minister Dr. Anoma Gamage says it is unfortunate that the recent local government polls failed to elect representatives to ensure that all the voters are equally represented at the LG bodies.
She called for the establishment of a system to ensure that all the voters are equally represented, when she spoke at a function at Daya Apparel auditorium in Ampara yesterday.
On the occasion, big onion seeds were distributed to people of Mahaoya and Padiyatalawa.
The deputy minister said 150 farmers have been chosen to receive the seeds.
She added that a monthly income of Rs. 15 million from big onions could be obtained from the two areas alone.
