Muslims should vote for President as token of gratitude -
Local Government and Provincial Councils Minister A.L.M. Athaullah
said that the Muslims of this country should vote for President Mahinda
Rajapaksa and express their gratitude to the President.
It is certain that the people are rallying round Mahinda Rajapaksa
and his victory at the election has been confirmed.
He said so at the Divi Neguma beneficiaries meeting held at S.I.
Kaleel auditorium at Irakkamam recently.
Irakkamam Divisional Secretary M.M. Naseer, Eastern Provincial Road
Development Minister M.S. Udumalebbe, Irakkamam Pradeshiya Sabha
Chairman U.K. Jabeer were present on the occasion.
The minister said that there was a time when students could not
attend schools, devotees could not attend the Mosques, farmers could not
go to their fields. Commuters could not travel in the busses.
But today the situation has completely changed. Terrorism has come to
an end and the people in the country are living peacefully.
He said that the members of the Local Government Bodies have been
awarded with motor-bicycles valued at Rs: 2 lakhs each.
Further, the allowances payable to the members of the Local
Government Authorities have been considerably increased. Therefore we
should vote for President Mahinda Rajapaksa at the forthcoming
Presidential election to be held on 2015 January 08.
