UNP Colombo District Candidate for the upcoming Western Provincial Council poll, S.M. Marikkar, addressed a public rally in Mattakkuliya on Thursday.

UNP Candidate of Colombo District, S.M. Marikkar expressed these views;

Think in retrospect about whether your children should live the way you are living. Think about whether your son should drive a three-wheeler, go to Saudi or do business on a pavement. All of the key schools in Sri Lanka are in and around the city of Colombo.”

“But your children cannot learn there. The best hospital in Sri Lanka is in Colombo. But you cannot get medication there. All of the private companies in Sri Lanka are in Colombo. But your children do not have jobs there. You can board people from outstation areas. The biggest hotels in Sri Lanka are in Colombo. But you cannot eat a meal there.”

“So think about why we are voting for them. We must change as a society, think beyond this. I will not come into politics and give you various false promises. Promises that cannot be kept. If you think that your children should learn well, get jobs in the private sector and lead good lives, then choose me. My hope is to bring progress to education and to train unemployed young men and women so that they can secure employment.”
