The president says, he is committed to develop the country under a proper plan .

President Maithripala Sirisena says that, he is committed to build the country under a proper programme. The progress of the country was hampered during the past few decades due to the activities of politicians who loved neither country nor the people. At a meeting held in Kelaniya last evening, the president said, that the people  did not have the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of real development in the country, due to serious frauds and corruption of some politicians who came into power promising to serve for the country and the people, but later worked hard for their own benefit.

The president pointed out that he, during his political life, has always committed for a clean political movement and to make a better country. He also said that this policy led his victory at the last presidential election  despite he  faced a lot of challenges.
