As part of his tour to some islands of South Thiladhunmathi atoll, President Nasheed has this afternoon visited Vaikaradhoo and Makunudhoo.
Addressing the people of Vaikaradhoo, the President said that although Vaikaradhoo was a relatively big island, it was regrettable that many of its people are forced to live in Male’.

From Vaikaradhoo, the President next visited Makunudhoo. Meeting with the people of Makunudhoo, the President spoke on the developmental projects planned for the island.
