Chairman of the Buttala Pradeshiya Sabha, Nandasiri Nikawatta said they have implemented a system to provide seeds to villagers in the PS limits, to facilitate 1,500 cultivation projects.
A proposal to this effect had been mooted at its monthly sessions held on 16 June by the PS Chairman and it was unanimously approved by PS members.
Nikawatta said the aim of launching the seed cultivation project is to prevent people in the Buttala PS from falling victim to any imminent famine in the country. He said the support of officials, farmers, and villagers will be sought to make this programme a success.
