While claiming that during the last two years, many milestones have been achieved as a country, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe in his New Year message said … “yet undoubtedly, much needs to be done in our pursuit to be a fully-fledged democracy that is also economically sound and socially empowered.”

“The abolition of the 18th Amendment which cast a shadow of dictatorship and suppressed democracy has been one of our greatest achievements during these two years. We have also been able to transform the perceptions the international community held with regard to Sri Lanka, enabling the country to build strategic relationships with other countries,” he said.

The Premier also said that dealing effectively with crimes against humanity, halting the wastage of public funds, minimizing corruption, establishing relevant commissions, finalizing the right to information act, ensuring freedom for all, easing the cost of living as loans overburden the economy, creating political stability while laying the foundation for economic development are among the achievements of the Government during these two years.

“As economic activity increases under Good Governance towards making Sri Lanka a viable destination, the Government is focused on empowering the people while encouraging co-existence and harmony between all communities,” the statement said.

He said that in the same vein, the Government seeks the co-operation of all Sri Lankans in defeating agendas that are aimed at disrupting Sri Lanka's course set for success.

“Let this New Year be the one to usher in greater change, a greater vision and prosperity to all Sri Lankans,” the message concluded.

    The people should feel and benefit from the so called achievements. If not, they are NOT achievements. There is nothing that has happened that has benefitted us in the past two years.

    The biggest achievement: Central Bank Bond Scam

    SAM SPARROW Saturday, 31 December 2016 11:12 PM

    Your only target is satisfying international community. Not Sri Lankans. Last time when you were in power you wanted give a 10 year interim administration period to LTTE. Luckily ChandriKa resolved the parliament. If you gave the interim administration that would be the Eelam. Now you are trying to do the same thing in a in a different way. You are an enemy of the nation.

    Dissapointed Saturday, 31 December 2016 09:12 AM

    You did not solve the main minorities issues as you promised in the election. So people are very much dissapointed

    Yes Nothing has done properly Saturday, 31 December 2016 09:22 AM

    Still you did not take any severe action against MR's family for stealing billions in this country. Everyday they walk-in to FCID..But no any punishment given. Some of the main culprit's case withdrawn / and finally he has left to USA.

    Gamini Saturday, 31 December 2016 11:08 AM

    Halting the wastage of public funds was the main achievement!

    Premalal Saturday, 31 December 2016 12:26 PM

    The biggest achievement is the CB Bond scam

    Premalal Saturday, 31 December 2016 12:27 PM
