President Gotabaya Rajapaksa today called on the people to blame him if he was not able to resolve people's issues during his tenure as President.
He said he has managed to develop the economy, which was crippled when he came to power, as a domestic green economy despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
The President expressed these views while participating at the "Gama Samaga Pilisandara" programme in Vavunia District today.
"I always say it is not Gotabaya Rajapaksa who is important, what is important is the force and the ideology which have brought me to this position. That is what we should safeguard. The motive of the false agendas of the rival forces is to defeat this ideology. What I am doing is to fulfill our promises that have been made to the people," he said.
