“Everyone must support the plan of action launched by the President to take the country forward. It is vital to select the most suitable persons in this journey”, the Thero said.
An intelligence unit comprising the general public will be formed in the future to set up a mechanism to identify corruption, fraud, waste and weaknesses prevailing in the country and provide such information to the President.
