"Parents should create a background for their children so as to become more valuable and resourceful persons to society. Full Moon Poya day is a public holiday for people to engage in religious activities with their children," the President said.

All must dedicate themselves during this new year to create a disciplined and developed society, which has religious values," the President further said.
