‘Govt.to forge ahead with renewed strength’

The Unity Government should forge ahead with renewed strength as it was formed by a vast majority of the people placing their trust in President Maithripala Sirisena, Minister Duminda Dissanayake said.

He said the President is on his way towards fulfilling the aspirations of the people to develop this county. Therefore, nobody should try to sabotage and destabilise the country.

Minister Dissanayake said that anyone can enjoy the freedom gifted by the Good Governance government but, should not misuse it as that would result in creating unnecessary inconveniences to the public, including school children, patients, Security Forces and Police and officials.

Asked as to whether he would join the protest campaign organised by the Joint Opposition in Colombo today, he replied that the politicians should have concrete and stable policies which donot change for their benefit. The Minister also pointed out that the team of the 15 SLFP members, who quit the government recently after holding positions in the government, obtaining a salary from the government, used government vehicles and official residences, went on foreign trips. Therefore, it is not fair to criticise the government for their benefit.

“The SLFP faced challenges even in the past. The party bravely overcame all these challenges. Therefore, we will make the right decisions at the right time for the country’s sake,” he added.

The Minister also added that the government and his party is always open to constructive criticism and ias always prepared to correct their mistakes and shortcomings.
