Hopefully the troubles of the recent past are over permanently and Sri Lanka has a new dawn for progress and prosperity thanks mainly to the vision of ourÂ pragmatic President and his team of administrators who have done the once embattled nation proud.
Much to the chagrin and envy of Sri Lanka’s adversaries and enemies and despite multi pronged attacks from various quarters both internally as well as externally, determined to drag herÂ down, the progress in development, the restoration of a normal order, peace, harmony Â and embellishment of a land renowned for her natural beauty and resources once much sought after my most of the world is astounding as Sri Lanka soars in the ratings as a safe and beautiful country todayÂ which almost single handedly is the effort, determination and courage of the Nation’s leader who had faced all his adversaries undauntedÂ leaving nothing to the imagination that here then is a new generation Duttu Gemunu who in a relative sense ( very relative in fact considering the nature of the opponents) has restored the Nation to her people where the acollades need to continue Ad Infinitum!Â
Thus it is not surprising that many seers and personages of intellectual as well as conventional wisdom agree thatÂ Â President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s UPF/SLFP Â is the only party from whichÂ a hugeÂ serviceÂ has beenÂ rendered to the country where despite the raucuous clarion calls of the enemies of the Nation, the salient and inalienable truth points to this reality. It is visible wherever one looks today in the vast development projects and the growth of this tiny albeit predominent Island as she soars to heights once thought impossible and points to the co-ordinated efforts of the President and his team.Â
This concerted effort must never be permitted adversity or destructive alienation by those who seek to disrupt itÂ for their own objectives and agendas,Â what Sri Lanka is today where its continuation will surely project her towards being one of the most advanced and successful countries in South Asia where the beneficiaries most importantly and predominantly will be her own citizens and those who have pitted their resources, support and loyalties to her leaders where the rewards will be plentiful and rich in time.
While there is no denying the grey areas that still exist in a winter of discontentment by the impoverished and embittered lesser individuals of the land with no accessibility to some of the favours presently afforded to the gentry, the affluent and some unscrupulous politicians who compare their political status to that of a lottery winner,Â the needs of the impoverishedÂ should be prioritised and a decent standard of living needs to be restored to all citizens as there could be no harmony if it relates to conscience and principleÂ if simply the needs of the affluent are met and the poor left to their own resources of survival which in some cases reaches lower than the chillest penury endured by some as they strive to eke out an existence in a very pathetic sense.
In a sense this is all the more reason that the newÂ dawn of 2014 needs to be realistically sharedÂ by all citizens loyal to our pragmatic President whose visionin turn needs to encompass all of the Nation with no exceptionsÂ .
