Consensual govt. has been a success – president (pics) Featured

The consensual government has been a success despite whatever criticism being leveled against it, said president Maithripala Sirisena yesterday (04).

Addressing the launch of ‘Vision 2025 – A Rich Country’ economic development plan at the BMICH in Colombo, he said the government should continue in order for the country to reap full benefits of the consensual government.

Maximum dividends of the consensual government are not possible yet due to the work of politicians who seek power only and are against such a system of governance, he charged.

The president, together with prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe answered questions asked by representatives of the youth parliament, at the event on the day the cabinet completed two years as well.

2025 govt. vision

The 2025 vision contains several targets including generating one million jobs for youths, raising the per capita income to 5,000 dollars, a pension for all and Samurdhi benefits for the needy.

Speaking further, Mr. Sirisena said wrongdoers were now afraid to commit wrong due to punishment being given to wrongdoers under the good governance government.

The president and the PM distributed copies of ‘Vision 2025’ to the young leaders present.
