Lalith Dissanayake's "Fun-Formula" For Economic Progress

Deputy Health Minister Lalith Dissanayake has said that the number of votes he obtained at the last General Election is an indication of the economic progress achieved by the people of Kegalle District. 

"When I lost the election I got only 8000 votes. And The UNP candidate obtained 16000 votes. Today I have obtained 18000 votes. What does that mean? It means things are going well in Kegalle," the Deputy Minister said during a political talk show two days ago.

When asked whether Kegalle was a problem-free area, the Minister said the people in his electorate did not have any problem. 
 
"There are small scale tree cultivators. They are getting a good price. There are people who cultivate spices. There are people who grow Nitty Grits. In my electorate, the second largest avenue of income is Nitty Gritts. So people are doing well, Dissanayake said.
 
An alumnus of Dharmaraja College of Kandy, Deputy Minister Dissanayake is a lawyer by profession who has been in politics for nearly two decades. He first became a Member of Parliament from Kegalle during former President President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga's time.
