The program will be executed by the Ministry of National Integration and Reconciliation which is under the purview of President Maithripala Sirisena.“This is one more significant step towards addressing the housing requirement of the conflict-affected people and as these are brick and mortar houses, people’s representatives have expressed delight that these go well with their traditional values and cultures,” Sivagnanasothy said.
