By W.K. Prasad Manju
Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday (6), expressed his gratitude and appreciation to the public for having placed their implicit trust in the SLPP at the 5 August General Election by handing them a landslide victory.
He stressed that a new SLPP regime will strive to fulfil the hopes and aspirations of the masses and also vowed that he will steer the nation on a path to prosperity and peace under the guidance of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa.
The Premier noted that the majority of the voters had given a clear mandate to the SLPP to implement the President’s manifesto put forth at last year’s Presidential Poll.
He promised that once the new SLPP Government is formed, the President’s election manifesto would be fully implemented.
Rajapaksa urged all supporters of the SLPP to celebrate the Election victory peacefully sans harming any political rivals.
He also conveyed his appreciation to the voters of the Kurunegala District as well, from which electorate he ran for office, for having placed their confidence in him at the concluded Poll.
