President Mahinda Rajapaksa said yesterday that he had a duty to create a society which is well disciplined and has high moral values. Addressing the first major political rally in support of UPFA candidates contesting the forthcoming Parliamentary elections, the President said he was of the belief that a country’s progress could be retarded if it did not possess a disciplined society.
“The people gave me a second successive mandate to govern the country with a 1.8 million majority with a lot of hope and conviction. A disciplined and morally rich society is one of their wishes. I am prepared and committed to fulfill their aspirations,” he said at the rally in Kandy.
He pointed out to the large gathering that the people had elected him in 2005 with the main objective of delivering the country from the clutches of terrorism.
