Measures will be taken against those who break the law- President
-Aasandha scheme will be expanded
President Dr. Mohamed Waheed has said that legal measures will be taken against those who break the law and perpetrate violence.
Addressing the people of Dhidhoo during his tour to Haa Alif atoll, President Waheed said that the law enforcement authorities have assured him that those who violate the laws will be taken to account and no opportunity will be given to anyone to cause strife among the people.
The President said that he will not interfere with any works of the law enforcement agencies and the courts of law.
He said that given the current political situation of the country those who violate the laws should be faced with patience. He said that he is trying to bring peace and resolve the issues patiently taking measures considering the welfare of the country.
The President stressed that differences in politics should never be cause for obstruction of development and progress of the country. He said that such people who threaten the development of the nation because of their political thoughts should be admonished against such behavior.
“First we should advice them. And if they still persist then they should be stopped. It is saddening that such elements exist in our country though they are few in number,” he said.
During his address the President also commented on the government’s policy regarding Aa Sandha, the government health insurance programme. He said that the government has decided to expand the services of Aa Sandha.
President Dr. Waheed said that Aa Sandha services would be continued at the government hospitals and health centres where they are already being provided, and the services are now again extended to private hospitals and private clinics that are registered according to a code of practice.
