Minister Johnston Fernando says President Gotabaya Rajapaksa will be a leader who follows through his promises despite challenges.
The Minister speaking at the function to vest 1,500 roads with the public yesterday said, the opposition is destroying the country at a time that the government is focused on uplifting the country.
Minister Fernando said protests are being carried out along roads that were built by the government.
He charged the opposition that boasts of protecting people’s lives, of risking public life by encouraging the conduct of protests amidst a pandemic.
He accused the government of taking the country to ruins at a time that development is being ensured.
The Minister stated the present government has three more years in power, and vowed that all promises made by the President will be fulfilled.
Minister Johnston Fernando said the President will go down in history as the leader that saved lives during the coronavirus pandemic.
He claimed the opposition promoted slogans such as ’Sir fail’, claimed that there was no plan for vaccinations, and charged that people would die due to the lack of beds, oxygen and medicine during the coronavirus pandemic.
Despite attack after attack, Minister Fernando said the President successfully addressed all such challenges and protected lives.
