COLOMBO (News 1st); President Gotabaya Rajapaksa says he is not focused on the votes but on doing the right thing for the people.
The President also added that he is ready to take bold decisions for what’s right and focus only on the needs of the people.
He made these remarks while inspecting the Organic Fertilizer Processing Centre and the organic farm at Bunnahepola in Udubaddawa today (23).
“I have given priority to the farmers – I will not erode that trust placed on me,” said the President adding that decisions need to be made after considering good as well as bad elements.
“Do not fall prey to provocative politics – rally for the benefit of the future generations”, President Gotabaya Rajapaksa urged the farmers, according to the President’s Media Division.
The President who visited the Fertilizer Processing Centre inspected the organic fertilizer production process and the techniques used to maintain the quality of the products.
The President said that his objective is to improve the living standards of the farming community.
“In this regard, I’m ready to make difficult decisions that political leaders may hesitate to make. Many calls were made not to get involved in a war back then. Similar to how the 30-year-old war was brought to an end, the goal of green agriculture will be achieved irrespective of the obstacles,” the President said.
Though the global chemical fertilizer companies place obstacles by provoking various forces, the President said that he is not afraid of any of them and added that the people had elected him as their leader to make the right decisions.
President Rajapaksa made this visit to encourage entrepreneurs engaged in organic farming, said the PMD.
The President also inspected the Garbage Recycling Centre at the Udubaddawa Pradeshiya Sabha premises.
