The country needs a people friendly and country-friendly government : President

President Maithripala Sirisena highlighted that the country needs a people friendly and country-friendly government to steer the country.

He was addressing the Sri Liya celebration organised to mark the National Women’s Day at Viharamahadevi Park today. The women’s day celebration was held with the aim of free the country from drug menus under the theme “Mathin Thora Deshayak – Thutin Piri Kedellak”.

Addressing the gathering the President further added that the country is badly in need of a new patriotic and capable government, in which women’s contribution is significant. Women have to play a pivotal role in forming the new government, which is strong enough to bring the country forward towards the right direction to achieve economic, social, educational, health and many other goals.

The President said that organisations established for women including NGOs do not utter a single word about difficulties faced by women go abroad for employments.

“It has been revealed that women go for foreign employments face many difficulties. But it is regrettable that those so called women’s organisations never stand for protecting women, who go foreign employments. The only motive of many of these women’s organisations is to collect money” the President added.
