President Rajapaksa said in spite of rising world prices of goods the Government has provided tax concessions to essential consumer items. Commenting on terrorism, President Rajapaksa said the Government is doing its best to liberate and restore normalcy in the north and requested the support of all. He remarked that there were attempts by certain quarters to label the Government regarding Human Rights violations by putting the blame of all types of killings including LTTE atrocities and homicides on personal rivalries on the Government.
