President Gotabaya Rajapaksa said yesterday that everything promised to the people to fulfill within five years will be fulfilled in the next three years.

The President assured during the opening the Mirigama-Kurunegala section of the Central Expressway that as a leader descended from a farming family, he would always take the lead in protecting the farmer.

President Rajapaksa said that he would not forget the youths who had cultivated barren paddy lands when he came to power and invited them to join once again.

The President said that he had instructed the Minister of Agriculture to empower the farmers by purchasing paddy for Rs. 95 even.

"There is no competition with the media. We have come to power to develop the country," the President said.

He invited the media to be a partner in the country’s development. The President also called on all public representatives and government officials to come together to work for the people of the country without being discouraged by false propaganda.

The Mirigama-Kurunegala section of the Central Expressway was opened to the public yesterday by President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa.         
The Ethugalpura Entrance, the second phase of the Central Expressway which spans 40.91 km in distance, has five interchanges at Mirigama, Nakalagamuwa, Dambokka, Kurunegala and Yaggapitiya.

Rs. 149 billion has been spent for this by the government. This section of road was constructed by local contractors and engineers.

    Baba Sunday, 16 January 2022 11:24 AM

    Thanks HON. President. We already suffered last EIGHTEEN MONTHS. Equals to our live time. Next three months nothing for us. Jayawewa

    Start with the most critical. You promised the farmers fertiliser free on the advise of the brother. The farmers voted en masse on this promises. Now they do not have fertiliser even at a price. We all paid for a shipload of shit even without seen the shit. You have failed. There is nothing left for the next 3 years.

    Entire net work of roads had been constructed by “ White People”. They handed over a Gold-Mine with Tea, Rubber and Coconut plantation. These have now been ruined. Government is on the “ Reverse Gear”. Sri Lanka is an Agricultural Country. Government has forgotten that. They follow Singapore.

    Cheers Sunday, 16 January 2022 11:44 AM

    We look forward to your promise and people who endorsed you to power. We trust you and you have proved it before and I know you will show what you promised

    Jude Sunday, 16 January 2022 11:57 AM

    In 3 years you'll witness a landslide victory for NPP yeah,!!

    Lankan Sunday, 16 January 2022 12:00 PM

    Lies and lies .. Already enough damage has been done not by you but by all thieves around your family and by some your family members . Bring all looted money back and put all those thrives into jail then people will trust you . It is impossible task . Theft and your government are identical . So what could people do . They tasted it now you can't stop it

    sam Sunday, 16 January 2022 12:01 PM

    People have been made to suffer and with same style of admin how are you fullfilling anything?

    ANTON Sunday, 16 January 2022 12:06 PM

    WHAT IS HAPPENING IN SRILANKA THESE DAYS ARE JUST LIKE TIK TOK CLIPS ON THE SOCIAL MEDIA.

    Dee Sunday, 16 January 2022 12:10 PM

    Ya right!

    Ram Sunday, 16 January 2022 12:11 PM

    Absent minded President who now forget the promises made two years back says he will fulfil them in the next 3 years. Masses are not fools

    Anne Karunaratne Sunday, 16 January 2022 12:17 PM

    How do you expect people to continue to suffer like this, when children cry without milk, do you expect them to wait for another 3 years like that??

    M Perera Sunday, 16 January 2022 12:21 PM

    Ammo! There wont be a country if you manage the country for the next 3 years champ.

    Ralaharamy Sunday, 16 January 2022 12:50 PM

    OK. We will give you 5 more years to prove your point. No more.

    Tommy Sunday, 16 January 2022 12:52 PM

    Will the Easter bomb culprits also be known - as this also was an election Promise.

    Citizen Sunday, 16 January 2022 12:54 PM

    Go home before they throw u out

    N SENA Sunday, 16 January 2022 01:00 PM

    SORRY MR PRESIDENT. YOU HAVE MISERABLY FAILED THE PROBATION. DONT DREAM OF WINNING A REFERENDUM. GO HOME

    Vincent G Sunday, 16 January 2022 01:07 PM

    We think you can do it, because if not you, then who else, so kindly get down to business ASAP. JVP talks big but have no substance. AKD is corrupt to the hilt himself and his party members can barely tolerate him so it's either GR or nobody at this point.

    sujxxx@yahoo.com Sunday, 16 January 2022 01:30 PM

    That's his honesty

    johan Sunday, 16 January 2022 02:37 PM

    Liberated from LTTE and sold to China, India,USA. What is left for the balance three years

    Karalasingam Sivalingam Sunday, 16 January 2022 03:15 PM

    Very good motto. Send the corrupt to jail. You will be hailed by all.

    Arnold Sunday, 16 January 2022 04:56 PM

    Why not start by giving us uninterrupted electricity and gas?

    Premalal Perera Sunday, 16 January 2022 05:19 PM

    If we live that long. Talk is cheap Mr President.
