Army Commander Lt. General Jagath Jayasuriya has said that despite the conspiracies that are being hatched against the motherland on foreign soil, nobody will be permitted to act against the country from within.

The Army Commander said that the security forces have to contribute towards construction of buildings, road development, infrastructure and the development in the agricultural sector due to the confidence placed by the Government. He said that the Army can play a major role as they can extend labour, commitment, productivity and complete a task at low expenditure. He said that Army is giving priority to uplifting the moral of the people who were affected due to terrorism, uplifting the lives of people in the North and East, and developing the area. The Army commander expressed this view when he began his official functions in the New Year. He observed that assistance of the security forces is essential in the development process. The Army commander said that the security forces are fulfilling a special task in this connection.
