People have spurned politics of malice - President
President Mahinda Rajapaksa said he will usher an era for youth to
gain employment according to their qualifications and skills without
having to go behind politicians for jobs. The President gave this
assurance when he addressed UPFA activists including SLFPers at
Piliyandala-Kesbewa on Sunday.
The President said the recent Presidential Election proved that the
people spurned politics of malice.
The people had given a fitting answer to falsehood and mud slinging
at that election. President Rajapaksa said the Government had continued
the country’s development program without interruption and he hoped to
accelerate it further in the near future to cover the whole country
without resorting to piecemeal development programs.
Ministers Bandula Gunawardena and Gamini Lokuge also participated.
