The Southern Province has been brought under an accelerated development drive. The younger generation should be prepared to face development challenges in the future, said President Mahinda Rajapaksa in Suriyawewa Tuesday.
"We have a responsibility to rebuild the country under a stable Government after terrorism was eradicated," he said.
President Rajapaksa was addressing SLFP activists in Bandagiriya at the Suriyawewa Town Hall. He added that some political parties have betrayed their policies to various international forces and have forgotten their leaders too. President Rajapaksa said the country does not need politics based on petty and narrow policies.
"The people demand a viable mechanism through which this country could be built after the scourge of terrorism was wiped from the country," he added.
