Determine to live with nature in the new year – President
The year 2017 dawns with new hopes of prosperity, coexistence and reconciliation in our hearts. The twenty two million people of Sri Lanka look forward to an era of sustainability with a determination to alleviate poverty in all its forms.
It is imperative that we overcome the challenges ahead of us. The progress of the human race was pioneered by people who faced challenges with confidence, utmost courage and determination amidst obstacles. Our goals could be achieved if we manage our work efficiently and productively, and do the right thing at the right time with unwavering commitment to serve the greater good.
The adverse effects of climate change show us the imperative need to be prepared for weather uncertainties. We have to be determined this year to live with nature and not above or against it.
I wish all of you a prosperous new year in which the fruits of progress are distributed fairly and the aspirations of the people are fulfilled.

In a modern it is impossible to live with nature for the common man for unlike the politicians he does not get free electricity while the common man gets one of the highest cost electricity in the world and we Sri Lankans have one of the lowest per capita consumption per year of only 366 kWh the per capita consumption of electricity is a indication of the socioeconomic development of the people. This type depressed living standard of the common is mainly due to our President
Sirisena your polemics remain more than a polemic. The be the majority of Lankans to whom you address this message is too far removed to give you a hearing for they live in poverty short of the bare necessities, The sort agriculture the practise make them perpetually poor so poor that they cannot understand why
When they harvest their crop the likes of your brother Dudley is at the farm gate driving a hard bargain fo procure the crop more often than not in collusion with he local mudalali. I am sure sirisena the president is familiar with the process. Finally these pauper peasants not only pledge their land budt they are held in bondage to the money lenders to slave
right mr sirisena
I simply wish this so-called Yahapalana would come to an end in 2017.
The Yahapalana leaders are completely out of touch with the masses.
The Rice industry and the Communication Industry are in the control of the Ruling Family. The Financial Sector including Foreign Investments are in the hands of Leader No 2 and his mate, the biggest Komis Captain ever in the history of SL.
I now tend to believe that the Mahinda-Basil-Gotabhaya-Namal axis which ruled us for 9 years have the capability to provide better relief to the amude-wearing citizen.
Sri Lanka’s poverty is man made, nature has nothing to do with this.
