Apr 04, Colombo: Sri Lanka opposition leader Ranil Wickremasinghe vowed to retire from politics if he failed to fulfill the promises given in his election manifesto within five years.
Addressing an election rally in Kurunegala Friday, Wickremasinghe said he will implement the policies in the election manifesto within two years and create a new Sri Lanka in the following three years.
"In this election manifesto, we have promised concessions and development for the country, because it is possible. We will implement all of it in two years. After implementing them within three years, we will be able to reap the benefits and create a new Sri Lanka," he said.
He said he is confident he will be able to do what he promised and if he cannot do so he will retire after the five years.
He asked the public to give him a majority in the parliament to form a new government and develop the country.
