The people requested the President to eradicate the drug menace from the country similar to the manner he provided them with housing while doing away with slums.

Many lives of youth and adults have perished in drug addiction. This is one of the pressing issues we face, residents of Mattakkuliya said. They said that they firmly believe President Gotabaya Rajapaksa is the leader who can wipe out this peril.

They expressed these views during a public gathering attended by President Rajapaksa today (9) in Crow Island in Mattakkuliya organised in support of candidates of Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) contesting the upcoming Parliamentary election. The meeting was organised by candidate Anura Fernando.

“Construct more houses by removing remaining shanties”, the people requested. The President asked the public to give him a strong government to resume development which was stalled in 2015. Minister Dinesh Gunawardene was present.

The President attended public gatherings organised by candidates Premanath C. Dolawatta in Hyde Park in Colombo and Thilanga Sumathipala in Victoria Park. People appealed to the President to build a secured country for the benefit of the children while giving priority to development projects.

The President joining public gatherings organised by the former Minister Susil Premajayantha at Dabare Road, Narahenpita and Sarath Weerasekara at Dematagoda requested the people to support him in forming a stable Parliament to build a prosperous country.  

President Rajapaksa positively responded to a request made by the people living in Kolonnawa to provide a Regional Health Services Centre for their benefit. This request was made to the President when he joined the public gathering organised by  Ajith Subasinghe in Kolonnawa.

The President also willingly agreed to a request made by a girl child who is suffering from cancer, to take a photograph with him. The President who posed for a photograph with the child wished her a speedy recovery.

The President received a warm welcome from the people gathered at the public rallies organised by Udaya Gammanpila in front of Diyatha Uyana, Battaramulla and the public meeting organized by the former Minister Wimal Weerawansa at the Buddhadasa Ground.  The Maha Sangha and others participated.
