President Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday said that Sri Lanka as a whole had to suffer due to a protracted conflict because of betrayals, subjugations and blunders made in the past. He was of the opinion that the conflict could have ended much earlier and the devastation caused by it to both man and property could have been avoided to a great extent, if certain administrators in the past had engaged in prudent and selfless decision making on behalf of the country.
The President made the above observations after he declared open ‘Lakviru Sevana’ - a sales complex to market products made by disabled soldiers in Battaramulla.
