A new government formed by the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) following the General Election will make the people from Point Pedro to Point Dondra, stakeholders of the development in the country, SLPP Leader Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa said .
Speaking at the final rally of the SLPP, in a series of rallies held in the run-up to the general election, at Tangalle last evening, the prime minister requested the people to vote in support of the leadership that has already shown the ability to work and is keen to continue working for the country.
“Today, the need has arisen for a parliament that can support the president who has dedicated himself to develop the country. To make all these possible and to carry forward the national policy framework, Vistas of Prosperity and Splendour, I request the people to vote for the SLPP to elect a set of parliamentarians that has the necessary skills and the ability and thereby making way for a skilled cabinet,” he said.
In the same manner, President Gotabaya Rajapaksa should be commended for making prompt and successful decisions to manage the COVID-19 situation by deploying the health officials and the military personnel, the premier said the people’s assistance extended towards the COVID-19 prevention programme should also be commended.
“I request the people to go to the polling station early in the morning and cast the vote to the ‘Pohottuwa’ and give preference to three candidates,” he said.
He assured the provision of drinking water to all after a new government was established, in the same manner the electricity supply was provided to them during former Rajapaksa government. “The SLPP will win the parliamentary election with a vast majority of votes,” he said. (Lahiru Pothmulla)
