* Lauds public contribution towards country’s freedom
* Will not take forward past animosities
Certain international elements are trying to level human rights accusations against the country at a time the killings of youths from all communities have stopped and when people are once again living freely and in harmony, after the elimination of the 30 year scourge of terrorism. The burden of past animosities will not be passed on to the next generation. Creating coexistence, a healthy nation and inculcating good virtues in people’s hearts are our aim, President Mahinda Rajapaksa said.
