He was addressing the public at a Gamdora Abhiyasa Cultural Festival
at Ipalogama on a concept of Provincial Rural Development and
Co-operatives Minister H B Semasinghe on Saturday.
MP Shehan said the North Central Province had been the cradle of
civilization. ‘The NCP bordered the terrorist infested areas during the
conflict and people had to spend many sleepless nights in fear.
President Mahinda Rajapaksa and the SLFP led UPFA government liberated
the country from the terrorist menace and rendered a colossal service to
usher in peace and development.
The SLFP undertook a party re-organization programme in the
Anuradhapura district to rekindle people’s hearts and remind them about
the victories attained in the recent past which have been threatened by
various challenges posed by insidious forces.
MP Shehan said with the country charting a new course of peace and
development after 2005, anti-government forces have doubled attempts to
undermine the victories achieved.
It is the duty of the people to rally round the SLFP and form a
strong front to protect it from all threats posed by detractors.
