Leader of the United National Party Ranil Wickremesinghe has called on the country’s youth to utilise the UNP as a vehicle to overcome challenges ahead and ensure a successful future.

Speaking at an event yesterday the former Premier said youth are faced with greater challenges today than in the past.

He said many questions such as why Sri Lanka is not developing and why politicians cannot unite for the greater good are on people’s minds, adding however that now the country not only faces the threat of the coronavirus pandemic but is also on the verge of economic collapse.

The former Premier said many youth voted for President Gotabaya Rajapaksa at the Presidential Election, as he was not tainted by politics, however adding their hopes were later shattered.

The former Premier therefore urged the youth to take hold of their future by utilising their vote effectively.
