President Mahinda Rajapaksa, addressing the UPFA May Day rally in Colombo today, invited the opposition to supporting the government to develop the country and urged them not to oppose everything for the sake of opposing.
“You must think about your country and others more than about yourself.I invite you to join hands and come together. We can overcome any external force with unity. If the country’s reputation, goodwill and the good name is harmed and its economy is mismanaged, we will never be able to achieve our developmental goals. We must forget all differences and get together now. The opposition must not oppose every thing that the government does for the sake of opposing. We must all come together to fulfill the aspirations of the people,” the President said.
