New Year occasion to enhance ties between Sinhalese and Tamils: PM


Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe has observed that new year is an occasion to strengthen ties between Sinhalese and Tamils.

In his new year message, he states:  “Sinhala & Tamil New Year brings a message of prosperity and unity to the nation, acknowledging the role of the Sun in the agrarian society and its blessings towards a greater harvest.

It is also an occasion that strengthen ties between the Sinhalese and the Tamils, one that unites them and fosters a great degree of fellowship amidst shared customs and a reverence towards nature and its elements that are significant towards sustainable prosperity.

The ancient customs and traditions of the Sinhala & Tamil New Year are closely tied to sustainable good practices that preserve and respect the environment around us - they encourage the younger generation to share the same values and preserve them for posterity.

May all Sri Lankans enjoy a blessed and a prosperous Sinhala & Tamil New Year.”
