Anti-UPFA vote will bring era of darkness - Transport Minister
Ganthalawa: The Eastern Province, once gifted to the LTTE by UNP
Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe through an accord was given back to rightful
owners - the people - by President Mahinda Rajapaksa, Transport Minister
Dullas Alahapperuma said.
The Minister appealed to Eastern Province residents not to vote
against the UPFA. If they vote for another party, the East will again
see an era of darkness, Minister Alahapperuma added. The Minister was
speaking at the ceremonial opening of the new Railway Station in
Ganthalawa. Assuring a military victory in the North as well, the
Minister said that the UPFA victory at the forthcoming poll in the East
would further strengthen the President's hands.
Trincomalee-Colombo trains will stop at the new railway station,
minimising transport difficulties in the Trincomalee area. Minister
Alahapperuma assured that a passenger train with adequate facilities
will run to Trincomalee shortly for Easterners' convenience.
