MR: Difficult Decisions Need To Be Made

Feb 4, 2011 9:56:45 PM - thesundayleader.lk

President Mahinda Rajapaksa addressing the gathering at the 63rd Independence Day celebrations in Katharagama said preserving the territorial integrity is equally important as gaining freedom and we have already made so many sacrifices for that.

We have managed to increase the per capita income to US$ 2400 during the last five years, which is a massive increase from what we achieved from 1948 to 2005, he added.

The President further noted that not only popular decisions but difficult ones also had to be made for the betterment of the country and that he was willing to do so.
