“ How afraid people were when the election held 05 years ago, There was a white van culture at that time……”
“Today people are enjoying absolute democracy, but some have forgotten the past….”
Minister of Power, Energy and Business Development
Hon. Ravi Karunanayaka, Minister of Power, Energy and Business Development states that “Politics is not a sector that could solve all the issues immediately, but the obligation of the politicians is to listen to the public and give solutions whenever possible. Today 75 persons are getting permanent jobs as communication facilitators. Tamil language should be a must for a Sinhala person whilst Sinhala language should be a must for a Tamil person. The minimum qualification of the persons who obtained employments today is G.C.E.O/L. Like that politicians must be qualified at least of G.C.E. O/L examination. We should understand the value of education. When we turn back to the period from independence to present it is clear that this country has not been development as per the requirement of the country or public, but on the requisite of politics. As a nation we all should get together, go against extremism and ensure Sri Lankan identity.”
He expressed these ideas participating the event of giving appointments for 75 Sinhala / Tamil Translators. This event was taken place at the BMICH and Hon. Palani Digambaram, Minister of Hill Country New Villages, Infrastructure and Community Development also made his presence.
Hon. Minister Karunanayake further added that, Minister Diganmbaram made a tireless effort for the victory of HE the President Maithripala Sirisena. He is not only active, but also well competent in politics. He is a leader who fights on behalf of his voters to meet their demands. Since dynamic politicians take immediate action to meet the requisites of the public and complete their works people forget them all at once. Politicians who don’t work and pretend that they are working are in the memory of public since they never complete their works. A significant event in politics of Sri Lanka will come in a few months. I trust that UNP is steady enough to win the coming Presidential Election.
At the Presidential Election held five years ago people were in fear. A white van culture was existing at that time, but today’s situation is remarkably different. Today people are enjoying absolute democracy, but some have forgotten it. They are asking what this government did. National security, national economy and giving priority for the youth are very important today.
