President Sirisena’s latest mystery game plans are being made public again, piece by piece. He has proved to be a person capable of making false statements for his political survival and to keep UNP in power. President Sirisena is now portraying that he is anti-UNP, a well planned strategy worked out with the Prime Minister Mr Ranil Wickremasinghe and Chandrika. If the voters once again believe in President Sirisena, it will reduce the votes of Joint Opposition. That is the ultimate goal.
The President Sirisena has attacked the Prime Minister claiming that FCID, CID etc., are pursuing a political agenda. President Sirisena has the power to sack the Prime Minister based on these serious charges of interfering with or perverting the course of justice. But will he sack Ranil? No, never. This is the main reason Mr Wickremasinghe is not responding directly to President’s allegations, as the President’s outbursts will have the potential benefit of defeating the Joint Opposition at the upcoming election by reducing its vote base thus ensuring major victory for the UNP.
The voters must not trust the current Chairman of the SLFP, who is also the President of the country. He is fighting for the political survival. The ultimate goal of Sirisena, Ranil and Chandrika will be to destroy the powerful Joint Opposition and the political fortunes of President Mahinda Rajapakse.
Most important factor to remember is that the “local government elections are coming soon”.
