The country’s development and social freedom should be taken forward, he said, urging the people to vote for the UNP and give them the power of the Provincial Councils and LG bodies so they could develop the village as well.
The Prime Minister noted that development of the Ella town would commence shortly and said Badulla and Bandarawela too would be developed as a tourist destination.

Wickremesinghe noted that the difficult period is now over and vowed to take measures to ensure employment opportunities for the youth in the country.
