Sometimes, you were a father, sometimes a noble friend and sometimes a brother.
Winning the hearts of the Estate community and been in Sri Lankan politics for nearly two decades, the service you have rendered to our country is immeasurable. While representing Tamil people as well as all communities including Sinhalese and Muslims, every effort you took to improve their quality of life, literacy and health is commendable.
In the Ministry premises, you have always been a great guide to us. You were an honest leader who has always been very friendly with every member of the Ministry staff. With a heavy heart from your unexpected demise, we wish you rest in peace!
Secretary and the Staff
