UNF promises to further develop the country

RanilThe United National Front (UNF) said that it will further develop the country in the next five years and launch several projects if it wins the August parliamentary elections.

Releasing its election manifesto at a ceremony today, United National Party (UNP) leader, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said that the party will introduce a five fold action plan which will benefit the citizens of the country.

The plan includes the development of the economy, eradication of corruption, restoring freedom, investment on infrastructure and scaling up education.

Wickremesinghe added said that civil society members would be allowed to play a leading role in the state administration and therefore a consultative assembly comprising civil society members would also be set up.
He further said that the UNF, under its government, would develop the country within the next 60 months by generating one million jobs, one mega city in the Western province and set up 45 economic development zones, 23 super development zones and ten fisheries development zones.

The Prime Minister also pledged to bring in stringent laws to deal with corruption in the country. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. UNF agenda is similar to what you expect from LTTE. Any action taken against to defeat LTTE by Rajapaksa government is being persecuted by Yahapalana Government. Previous government diverted all resources towards the war and freedom was given to various authorities to finish the war quickly to avoid further killings. Now everyone enjoys the freedom without Tamil Terrorists, but Ranil wants to apply “western military standards” to brutal Sri Lankan war. He cannot remember while van culture he did with JR government when he was in power.
