THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT IS ISSUED BY
HRH RAJA REMIGIUS KANAGARAJAH OF JAFFNA
With respect to political issues, I hope on 5th August 2020, the parliamentary election will be conducted in a free and fair manner. Every citizen of Sri Lanka has a right to vote and your single vote can help select the right candidate. Everyone who is entitled to vote should cast their votes as they pleased.
During the election campaigns candidates and political parties often make promises to the public to get their support and votes. People believe their votes can make a difference; therefore, you need to elect, relatively good candidate and it is your responsibility to cast your valuable vote wisely to elect the right candidate.
A politician is elected to serve the public and they should understand their responsibilities for the people and society. Unfortunately, politicians usually break their promises, made during the election campaign. However, any politician who failed to fulfil their campaign promises should definitely be held accountable.
As I have mentioned before in my messages, I urge all Sri Lankan Tamil people rather than going in different directions, put aside your differences and stay united and work together to achieve your goals. Also please put your ego to aside, if not you will lose lot of opportunities.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish all candidates the best of luck in this election.
God bless you all,
God bless Sri Lanka!
