  • Today UNP vows for a new Sri Lanka, then what did they do within these past three and a half years?

    Today the UNP are pledging a new Sri Lanka. What did they do within these past three and a half years?

    Today, the United National Party and Hon. Ranil Wickremesinghe say that democracy has won. They say the country is back on the path of development and success. Hon. Wickremesinghe says he will work to provide relief to the people and to strengthen the economy. He says he will work towards fulfilling his government’s shortcomings and present a new Sri Lanka.

    All these pledges made by the UNP today, are three and a half years too late. Today, speeches are being made pledging to transform Sri Lanka. It is as if Hon. Wickremesinghe and his party have just emerged victorious from a general election.

    If these pledges are being made now, then I, as a citizen of this country question them as to what they did within these past three and a half years? This was all pledged by them even in 2015, but these past three and a half years, we saw no development, no investments, no relief. And definitely no ‘new Sri Lanka’.

  • Our fight for justice will continue & we will work for a new Sri Lanka!

    Today, my father and your leader, former President Hon. Mahinda Rajapaksa resigned from his post as Prime Minister to pave way for the establishment of a new government under President Maithripala Sirisena.

    Hon. Rajapaksa, in recent weeks, after being appointed as Prime Minister on Oct 26, saw the utterly disgusting behavior of the UNP MPs who created a political instability so severe, that it resulted in the entire country coming to a standstill.

    Hon. Rajapaksa, as you all are aware, was sworn in as Prime Minister at a time when the nation was facing a severe economic, social and political crisis. His urgent help was sought by President Maithripala Sirisena, who saw the nation failing after the severe mismanagement and weak economic policies of Hon. Ranil Wickremesinghe and his party. This severe mismanagement was felt by the masses. The cost of living was soaring, the business community was hit by heavy taxes, FDIs were at a standstill, unemployment was rising, and we had only fallen as a nation.

    My father, Hon Rajapaksa had in 2009, with the help of our brave tri forces ended a three decade long civil conflict against the LTTE terrorists. When President Sirisena, asked for his urgent help to save Sri Lanka once again, he accepted it as he too could see the severe mess we had fallen into.
