United National Front for Good Governance (UNFGG) will take care of the interests of 5.7 million people who voted for former President Mahinda Rajapaksa if elected to office on August 17, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said yesterday.

Speaking at an election rally in Galigamuwa, Mr. Wickremesinghe said UNFGG will take care of the interests of 57 million people as they are innocent and cannot be blamed for the wrong doings of those who ran the previous regime.

He said the intention of UNFGG is to work for all people and not only those who voted for the party.

Coming up with details on future development plans, the Prime Minister said an agreement has already been reached with an Indian company for the coal power plant in Sampur while another agreement to be signed shortly to construct a second coal power plant in Trincomalee. Also he said an oil refinery too would be built in China Bay.

Making more promises he said opportunities would be given for the people to go for new plantations such as fruits and flowers. "People in Galigamuwa will also get an opportunity to export fruits and flowers to countries such as Dubai," he added.(Yohan Perera)
