He added that the programme will be implemented by the SLFP and the government.
‘None of the defeated candidates would ever abandon, and all of them would become representatives of me appointed to develop the village,’ the President further said.

Cut your stupid grin and ware a pan cloth and start working in a paddy field. We cannot allow our country to go down like this. You gave too much favors to minority at the expense of Sinhalese just to get votes. Go man go.
Brother Ranjith, Please I have to disagree with you. Farmers who work (toil) in paddy fields (whether in the North/East or South) are gods. We can’t ask HE Sira to wear a loin cloth (Amude) and go to paddy field. Instead, he should go to Kindergarten Nursery school and learn basic education. Now he says he will start a new process. Starting everything new but no results. New Constitution is another new thing. Always appoint commissions. No results. At least can they capable of releasing the official results of the recently concluded PC elections? Answer is a big NO!
Bro Mt Amarakoon you are right about this puppet. Of course farmers are Gods and I respect them. Even the hard working tea estate workers get my respect rather than these baboons just do nothing and get all the benefits.
