Ensure victory for path of prosperity

President Mahinda Rajapaksa has performed a dedicated service by laying equal emphasis on development work while carrying out a humanitarian war to free the country of terrorism at a huge loss.

People in the South should ensure a runaway victory for the UPFA at the forthcoming election to strengthen President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s hands and enable him to steer the nation towards peace and prosperity overcoming all local and international challenges said UPFA Galle district candidate and former Minister, Attorney at law U.G.D. Ariyathilake at a UPFA election meeting held in Galle recently.

He said the President’s farsighted leadership and the Defence Secretary’s able guidance had enabled Security Forces and police to wipe out terrorism which had been a stumbling block for development and progress.

The President had performed a dedicated service by laying equal emphasis on development work while carrying out a humanitarian war to free the country of terrorism at a huge loss.

Under the Gama Neguma program alone Rs. 1 million was set apart for infrastructure development in each village every year despite a costly war and this itself was a herculean feat-free education, free textbooks and uniforms for schoolchildren.

Free health service had been continued without interruption while enhancing the Samurdhi allowance.

In addition to this, gigantic development projects such as Norochcholai Upper Kotmale and Hambantota Port projects have been launched with local and foreign funding and their benefits will soon accrue to the people.

Although some of the problems in the South needed solutions at national level the Southern Province had its own resources and talents added to a very creative public and if they are efficiently managed through a proper political leadership, development of the Province will be an easy task.

It is for this reason that the people should elect a UPFA administration to the Southern Province once again.

UPFA Candidate Ariyathilake said he has proper credentials for election as a people’s representative because he has 16 years experience as a Southern Provincial Minister. He said he had even gone to jail and suffered Police assault in fighting for the rights of his people.

He had never betrayed his people for the sake of personal gain or privileges.

He had learnt his politics from the late Ministers Amarasiri Dodangoda and Richard Pathirana and committed his time and energy to serve people in the Southern Province.
