In his message to mark World Anti-Narcotics Day, the President said that the country is on a productive path after a long difficult period. The “Mathata Thitha” concept has become the fundamental vision of the Mahinda Chinthana. He said the credit earned as a nation which eliminated terrorism, should be made more meaningful by moulding a country sans drugs.
The President pointed out that Sri Lanka has the strength and the courage to set another example to the world through this course of action. He was confident that everyone would cooperate and extend support in moulding a country without drugs.
