`People who had taken law into their hands should not be recognised. Terrorism was also a case of the law taken into the hands of a small group of people. Until we wipe out terrorism from our country we will not be able to develop our country,` Prime Minister Rathnasiri Wickremanayake said, addressing his staff, on New Year`s day.
`There is a group of terrorists who are trying to destroy the country and whatever political views we hold or whatever group we belong to we should support the armed forces who are sacrificing a lot to protect the country.`
The Prime Minister said that people should not only grow flowers in their gardens but also at least some vegetables so that the effort to become self sufficient in food could become successful. People should attach more importance to local things.
He requested his staff to see that some vegetables were grown in addition to flowers in the compound of the Prime Minister`s Office.
