The UNP Kalutara District Coordination Committee meeting was held in Bandaragama on Sunday under the auspices of UNP National Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe.

At the event, Ranil Wickremesinghe expressed the following views: “President Mahinda Rajapaksa has set a new record. In ten years he has not generated any jobs. People are leaving the country in search of employment. This has not happened before. “

“When Mahinda Rajapaksa first became President, he said he could not generate jobs because he was engaged in the war and asked for a second term. He is now in his second term and the war ended in 2009. “

He added: “How many new jobs have been created? That is what we have to ask? How many new industries have been established? Have there been any new services? Have there been any new computers? How many new trade zones were opened? Nothing of this sort has happened. Today, when they are asked about the major issue of employment, they start talking about development.”
