What Does Maithripala Sirisena And His Opposition Alliance Have To Offer Sri Lanka That The President And His Team Cannot? Nothing, In A Worthless Quest For Power!

If one digs deep into the track record of Maithripala Sirisena common opposition candidate it will becone very apparent that the man has little or nothing to offer Sri Lanka that the President has not already provided where he is simply a pawn of the power hungry likes of dead beats Ranil Wickremasinghe, Chandrika Kumaratunga, the top brass Buddhist Priests who should have reservations about involving themselves in politics who fancy their political influences as those which could overrun the present Administration which is simply wishful thinking.
In Sri Lanka today it is almost an idiosyncracy that disgruntled politicians often tend to take advantage of minor aberrations of the ruling party, blow them out of proportion and distort the situation in the country hoping to influence a gullible audience which is exactly what the Sirisena, Wickremasinghe, Kumaratunga alliance is attempting to do in Sri Lanka in the run off to the next Presidential Elections but they in all probabilities are in for a rude shock that their tactics will not convince the grerater percentage of the voting public who are not only aware of what’s going on but are also totally grateful for what the Rajapaksa Administration has done for the country for all the time it has been in power.
Therefore it seems a fair assumption that all the adversaries of the Administration of Sri Lanka who in the past have failed miserably to provide what was beneficial for the nation ar very unlikely to be in a capacity to do so now as all they seem to see is an assumed opportunity to topple the present Government but the question is with what as an alternative to what the Government has provided for towards a better nation in post insurgent Sri Lanka beyond loose rhetoric on the part of those who seek to unseat the President which truly is a vain and worthless effort!
It seems beyond speculation that all these opponent of the present Administration will be provided with the appropriate answer to the most lingering question many ask ” what do they have to justify their quest to unseat the present President in a political and economic climate that has been praised and acolladed globally. Little or nothing beyond false promises! Sri Lanka in the meantime continues to make great inroads into the process of nation building and is recognised for the related accomplishments contrary to all the false propaganda and innuendo being presented as part of the political mudslinging campaign of the supporters of the common candidate including himself who shamelessly continues his efforts to discredit the Administration which gave him much recognition and status which he has chosen to spit on and reject in his selfish quest for power.So is this the kind of leader Sri Lanka can trust in? Hardly!
Therefore when President Mahinda Rajapaksa scores a resounding victory at the forthcoming election the hopefuls who sought to unseat him are bound to be quite unpleasantly surprised as it will be the will of the common man who will not be swayed by the false portrayals of the Administration as unworthy, that will sweep the President back into power as he has already created his legacy as one of Sri Lanka’s finest leaders with great patriotic intent and acclaimed by the more discerning world political leaders towards its veracity !
If one were to view astutely and with true perception the alliance that has set its sights towards replacing the present Administration there can only be a single impression in the eyes of the beholders of a group of individuals who have banded themselves in an opportunistic sense to acheive what some of them failed to do for decades having been rejected by the will of the people in the past and in this sense some who were once projected to power by the will of the people now attempting to ursurp their much loved patriotic leader would in every likelihood be swept away in a wave of resentment and rejection through the people’s mandate bearing in mind that no leader in the history of Sri Lanka has accomplished what the present President has and restored the Nation into one of dignity, prosperity and great hope towards posterity of future generations.
It is indeed a worthless quest for power by the opposition!
