What brought down the Lions?

After the battle of the victorious Lions against the Tamil Tigers; it was taken carelessly to account that no more will it ever be possible for the northern terrain to fall into the hands of any political separatism.
Therefore it was decided by the then government to hold Provincial Council Elections under the Proportional Representation (PR) Electoral System in the Northern Province.
This was the first step down for the slippery destruction of the dynamic Lion regime of the nation which was internationally saluted for defeating terrorism.
Prior to this slippery move of the then government I did send many letters of communication to the then governing heads to strike of the PR System; and also, I send proposals to incorporate a dynamic international Air Base stretching down from NALLUR to PARANTHAN.
The telecommunication reply which I then received through a secretary who had his residence at “Jawatta” was on a high minded platform where he did not want to adhere to my value added proposal which was made for the betterment of the Nation.
I hope the bitter lessons of the past will make wise the present.
