Right thoughts can transform Sri Lanka into a better place - Ranil

New year message


The UNP and Opposition leader Ranil Wickremesinghe in his New Year Message said.

"With the dawn of the Sinhala - Hindu New Year, we, as a nation, tend to go back to our rituals, values and roots. Although one may find it difficult to practice New Year rituals in their truest form nowadays, it should not prevent one from identifying the real values behind our own traditional New Year rituals.  

"The common objective of each and every New Year ritual is to spread good will not only within the minds of people, but also across our families and the society at large.

"It is a known fact that the ‘goodness’ of our nation has been jeopardized by ill-will and malice. While corruption is ruling the roost, the people are deprived of democratic rights. Rule of law has been undermined by mounting political influence. Even a national event such as the Sinhala and Tamil New Year is being used by the present regime as a propaganda tool. A rogue state is in the making in front of our eyes, despite the false promises of a righteous and virtuous society.

"We need to understand the present state of affairs in our country and rescue our future generation from this situation. In this Sinhala – Tamil New Year, we need to fill our minds with right thoughts to transform our country into a better place to live in. That will make the New Year more meaningful."
