The Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa today assured he would resolve the plight faced by the northern people.

He gave this assurance during a discussion held with the Eelam People's Democratic Party (EPDP) Leader Douglas Devananda about the concerns of the people in the North because of the lack of development.

Mr. Rajapaksa said a people-friendly government would help provide answers to their concerns and that he would create an environment where all citizens could live in unity and be proud to be Sri Lankans. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    But Devananda was always a cohort of MR. So he does not need much convincing.

    You are responsible for the deaths of many innocent tamils, including the ones that were murdered in north.

    What about the abduction of 11 tamil youths in 2009? Do you assure solutions to any of them or their families too?

    What right a murderer has got to contest. You lot couldn't give the basic demands of innocent Tamils and now you are promising what?

    I still cannot believe as to why the people live in overseas complaints against GR. We Sri Lankans live peacefully in our motherland coz our military defeated the brutal terrorists. Therefore, we always support our heroes….!anu
