The Tamil community across the world is celebrating Thai Pongal today(Jan.14).

It is the harvest festival dedicated to the Sun God.

President Maithripala Sirisena, issuing a message in view of the Thai Pongal festival said that he would like to consider the Thai Pongal festival, which has bestowed the supreme status upon agriculture, as an occasion to make the efforts taken by the government to take the country towards self-sufficiency in food and providing strength to the efforts.

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe in his Thai Pongal message said that the agrarian society possesses a deep reverence for the Sun God that goes back to centuries.

The Premier also said that all Tamils celebrating around the world join hands with all Sri Lankans in a poignant message of goodwill among all.

Meanwhile, Opposition Leader R. Sampanthan said that his prayer was at this year's special occasion that we would find a reasonable, lasting political solution to the unresolved national question through the new constitution.
