Media and Information Minister Keheliya Rambukwella says that following the end of the three decade long war, Sri Lanka had a lot to catch up on in relation to development.
Rambukwella told a public function in the Kandy District that one cannot be satisfied the country’s current position when looking back after achieving peace.
He said that many countries in the Asian region, especially those that have consulted Sri Lanka and have sought advice and have learnt lessons from the country were now ahead of Sri Lanka.
Rambukwella blamed the three decade long war for this situation. He said that the war prevented Sri Lankans from exploring their true potential due to the uncertainty that prevailed.
