Speaking in Jaffna Gota appeals to Tamils to have faith in him

Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) Presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa today appealed to the Tamils to place their faith in him.

Speaking at an election rally in Jaffna today Rajapaksa said that he has always kept his promises and will do so with regards to the promises he makes to the people of the North.

The former Defence Secretary urged the Tamils to put aside the past and look to the future.

“My policy statement for this election looks at ensuring a prosperous future for the country. The proposals we have made are practical proposals,” he added.

He said that if elected President he will rehabilitate and free LTTE cadres currently in custody.

Rajapaksa also said that his plan was to release most of the land occupied by the military but that plan was cut short as there was a change of Government in 2015.

The former Defence Secretary said that under an SLPP Government steps will be taken to give employment for the youth in the North and also address their outstanding issues.

Protests were staged in Jaffna by families of the missing to coincide with Rajapaksa’s visit.
