I am grateful to all of you who have supported me through these trying times.
Let me thank you, my fellow MPs, for voting against the no-confidence motion and for abstaining from voting. It was gratifying to see all religious and ethnic communities in our country standing together to sustain what we achieved in 2015.
Let me also thank all of you from all denominations who conducted religious ceremonies and prayed for the defeat of those who engage in enmity, fabrication and deception, and those of you who sent thousands of messages of goodwill and good wishes during the last couple of weeks.
We must use this opportunity to rejuvenate and take forward our programme of action for peace, harmony, development and justice in our country in the coming months.
