Speaking at the ceremony President called upon all people to be united to develop the country in the manner they united to destroy LTTE and pointed out that action against the Executive was democracy and all people must respect the judiciary and the rule of law in the country.
Sri Lanka gained its Independence in 1948 from British rulers after many sacrifices.
