President Gotabaya Rajapaksa has requested all concerned not to invite him to private functions with immediate effect.

In a statement, the President's Media said President Rajapaksa has given priority to expedite development projects launched by the Government for the benefit of the people and to solve their grievances at the grassroots level in addition to his daily official engagements. 

Since he is occupied with fulfilling national responsibilities, the President does not have time to attend ceremonies, prize giving events, weddings and social gatherings, and made a kind request to everyone to refrain from inviting him to such occasions. 

This request was made to the parties who seek the participation of President Rajapaksa, as the President devotes his time completely to the betterment of the people and leads the process through the Presidential Secretariat.
