He said major problems of the public have already been identified and solutions for them have been included in the SLPP manifesto. “I will implement all of them during my tenure,” Gotabaya said.

Unnecessary taxes will be slashed,” Gotabaya said.

“Fertiliser will be provided for free. The pension scheme for farmers will be re-commenced. A government job will be granted to a member of each poor family,” he said.Opposition Leader Mahinda Rajapaksa, Parliamentarians Ven.
