The children have a promising future before them. Joining in 8th National Scout Jamboree President Rajapaksa called upon the children to be useful citizens.
He said that the religion and the country make a large part of one’s life. Therefore one’s duties towards the country and the religion should be honestly fulfilled. The children should also have a good understanding of the culture and civilization of the country. While serving society they should not expect any accolades. Even if their work may be criticized today it will be appreciated in the future. Their responsibility is to honestly fulfill their duties towards the country.
