Passing of Budget 2008: a victory of the masses

President thanks all for support:

President Mahinda Rajapaksa while hailing the Government’s victory at the budget vote as a victory of the masses, pointed out that this would propagate the Government’s efforts in achieving peace and prosperity while eliminating terrorism.

The President in a message pointed out that devious machinations of a few who had become pawns of terrorists had been defeated with an overwhelming majority approving the Government’s efforts for sustainable peace and development.

The 2008 budget proposals were formulated with the intention of carrying forward the Government’s 10-year development plan according to Mahinda Chinthana with the main intention of strengthening the local economy.

Thus the consent to carry forward the agenda through the annual budget getting passed in the legislature was a victory of all the progressive forces striving towards a united and developed country, where all communities can live in peace and harmony, the President pointed out.

President Rajapaksa while thanking SLFP members, other stakeholders of the Government along with the clergy and other progressive forces for their support, pointed out that it was time for all to unite irrespective of differences.
