Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe made these remarks while participating at an event held in Colombo on Saturday evening,

[quote]We are a nation of people in the middle of the Indian Ocean, who live by our wits when we’re not killing each other. And when we live by our wits we have succeeded in getting ahead in life.[/quote]

The Opposition Leader further stated,

“What’s the use of thinking what you can do, how far ahead you want to get in life, if you want to be businessman, if you’re in North Korea? Then the dream becomes a nightmare. All of you have a dream. What you want to be in life. For yourself. For your parents. For your brothers and sisters. If you are married for you and your wife, for your children. Even for us who are older people. Some of you think of your children. And the older you are, even about your grandchildren. You all have a dream, but to make that reality, you must have a dream about your country. What do we want that to be? If we have no dream about our country, then our dreams are useless.”

Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe was the Guest of Honour at the 36th Leo Multiple District Conference held at the Defence Services College Auditorium on Saturday evening.
