The United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) completes
two years in office today. It was exactly two years ago, on April 8,
2010 when the UPFA retained power with a near two-thirds majority The
UPFA recorded a landslide victory at the 2010 General election by
securing 144 seats out of 225 in Parliament under the leadership of
President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
Voice of the President:
"Let's turn the ocean into a lucrative resource"
“It is a shame to import canned fish for consumption
spending billions of rupees as an island while endowed with a
resourceful ocean around the country “, said President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

The price of sugar, canned fish and sprats has also
been drastically reduced. As the Internal Trade Minister, I can assure
the prices of day-to-day consumer items have not been increased.
Actually politicians are dedicated to the well-being of the people and
to the development drive implemented by the Government. In this context,
I don’t believe politicians have to make any additional sacrifice. This
is the first time that this kind of mega development is taking place
throughout the country ,
