The minister was speaking at the Subarathi discussion programme of the SLBC this morning.

General Secretary of the United Peoples' Freedom Alliance minister Mahinda Amaraweera says the unison government was able to gain number of peoples' victories during the last year.

Minister S.B.Dissanayake who joined the programme pointed out persons who had engaged in various corruptions and fraud had organized a march to prevent legal action being taken against them. He also added that although Mahinda Rajapakse defeated the terrorism he was unable to reap benefits from the opportunity. However the present government has addressed number of issues after gaining power.

State Minister Mano Ganeshan said the proposed new constitution will pave the way for national reconciliation. He urged all parties to prevent damaging the harmony among communities by spreading communism.

Deputy Minister Ajith P.Perera stated although the previous government was able to defeat terrorism it was unable to win the hearts of the people in north. Both the president and the prime minister are committed to create reconciliation among communities.
