Our new Year dream of building a peaceful and prosperous Sri Lanka that upholds the dignity and equality of all communities could only be realized through a new constitution, says  R. Sampanthan in his new year message.

The message  further says that “as we celebrate the new year, I would also like to encourage that we remember our brothers and sisters who are vulnerable, marginalized, and grieving among us. They deserve our attention, support, and urgent action.”

Message of greetings marking the Sinhala and Tamil New Year

I would like to extend my heartiest wishes to all those celebrating the Sinhala and Tamil New Year.

As always, a new year marks a new beginning and brings new hope and expectation for everyone. As a nation, we have a crucial year ahead of us. It is a year that could be decisive in determining the future of our country and people. My hope and prayer, therefore, is that we would unite in the coming new year, to achieve our dream of building a peaceful and prosperous Sri Lanka that upholds the dignity and equality of all communities. 

I believe, however, that this dream could only be realized through a new constitution. Hence, I call upon all citizens to support the promulgation of the new constitution, ensuring the realization of the dream of a new Sri Lanka.

As we celebrate the new year, I would also like to encourage that we remember our brothers and sisters who are vulnerable, marginalized, and grieving among us. They deserve our attention, support, and urgent action. 

May this new year bring true happiness, peace, and prosperity to all.

Hon. R. Sampanthan

Leader of the Opposition – Parliament of Sri Lanka

Leader – Tamil National Alliance
