President Maithripala Sirisena says some are working according to their personal agendas to gain political power and they are not interested in strengthening the peace and reconciliation or in solving the issues of the country.

The President further said that the people should recognize these people who only consider their political power without giving priority for the country.

He made these remarks participating in the opening ceremony of the  new technical building at the St. Patrick’s College, Jaffna as well as presenting appointment letters to Graduate Teachers, on Monday (19).

President Sirisena said that he has never violated the confidence placed by the people of this country on him on January 8, 2015, and did not change those principles too, and further the President emphasized that no matter how opposing political forces are emerging, he would not be ready to make any changes to those policies in the future.

The President requested all the political leaders to love the motherland to overcome the future challenges while solving issues of the country.

President Sirisena  symbolically handed over appointment letters for ten Graduate Teachers marking the presentation of  appointment letters for 197  Graduate Teachers in the Northern Province.

Speaking further, the President said that it is vital to be given a good education for the people in the country to solve the issues of a country.

President Sirisena admitted that with the gradual growth of the educated population the problems of the country do decrease and it is one of the main   responsibilities of the governmental and non-governmental organizations to provide necessary knowledge to the people.

Strengthening the free education by all means is the responsibility of the government and accordingly all new educational policies will be taken while strengthening free education, said President Sirisena stating that the  system of the   current education  policies and procedures that compels the  graduates to strike due to unemployment will also be changed.

President Sirisena admitted that Graduates with the technological knowledge are having lot of opportunities in Japan and that in order to make the Sri Lankan graduates qualify for these opportunities was one of the issues discussed during the recent visit to Japan with the Japanese prime minister.

Archbishop Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith, Roman Catholic Bishop of Jaffna Justin Bernard Gnanaprasagam, and other clergy, leader of the opposition R. Sampanthan, Chief Minister of the Northern province C.V. Wigneswaran, Members of Parliament Angajan Ramanahthan, Mavai Senathirajah, as well as principal of the college Father Thirumahan, the staff members, parents and past pupils were present in this event.

    Mr.sirisena yes we have already identified politicians who only think of power not the country and that is you and the Yamapalanaya clowns not anyone else ok Sir. If you two don’t love power and green bucks which your western masters pay just resign and leave because citizens doesn’t like you two very much. They rejected you two and your supporters in the last LG polls in wholesale so think why they rejected you guys because you haven’t done anything to this country. You and Ranil both disgrace to our Motherland. You both have cheated the public and looted their money so better leave as soon as possible my dear Sira that’s the best thing you can do at this point.

    Sri Lankan voters now realise that electing a Government with too much power and a hopelessly outnumbered opposition, was a Big Mistake. It gave some of the corrupt politicians an opportunity to rob at will and live the high life whilst millions could only eke out an existence and watch the rogues, go past in their luxury vehicles. They also know who the political traitors are. One cannot bury ones head in the sand for long without suffocating.
    One can fool some of the people, some of the time, but, not all the people all the time. Onna kiyuwa.

    President Sirisena will have to bear the ultimate responsibility for all the misdeeds that Ranil is doing to destroy and destabilize this country.
    Sirisena, it seems, is trying to divert the blame to Ranil in an attempt to extricate himself from the responsibility but it will be futile as already the people of this country has given their decision.
