Today a political newcomer known as Sri Lanka Podu Jana Peramuna is celebrating the announcement of its Presidential candidate.  This event will be celebrated throughout the country by the voluntary participation of its supporters by offering traditional sweets and milk rice. The public anticipation is overwhelming to witness its hero none other than President Mahinda Rajapakse.

The masses who voted for a Change 4 years ago have experienced the Change with disgust.  The masses have witnessed the outright sale of assets of mother Lanka to foreign vested interests.   The masses have witnessed the mastermind money laundering at the Central Bank of Sri Lanka, by courtesy of Minister in charge of CBSL, viz. Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe.

Today the nation once again live in fear.  The so-called government teams which came to power to bring about Reconciliation, are deeply divided.  It’s own hand-picked, head hunted President is no longer in talking terms” with the Prime Minister.  The Prime Minister is openly challenged by his own Party deputy.  Ministers of Cabinet are attacking each other.  Even after 4 years, the Government still recruiting Cabinet Ministers, Deputies and Governors.   

The anticipation of average Sri Lankan for a bright future for them and their families posing a formidable challenge and pressure for the future leaders.   Masses wait for a clear policy and policy implementation outcomes from the new team. There will be no honeymoon.  We need to stop building any more new temples, churches, mosques. We need to build mutual understanding among all communities.

Tomorrow’s event should give a clear direction for unifying the disintegrated land and nation. It needs to implement new projects that will increase the revenue earning capacity of mother Lanka.  To enhance investor confidence, a rigid but transparent Corporate Governance Regime must be established.  Having learned bitter lessons of the current Constitution, Sri Lankans hope for a new Draft Constitution, that will provide:

·        guarantee the unitary status,

·        pride of place for Buddhism and Sinhala   Language,

·        protection of minority rights,

·        right of every citizen to live in any part of the island,   

·        take-over national assets sold to foreigners and prohibit the future sale of national assets;

·        mandatory annual declaration of assets, liabilities and pecuniary interests of key personnel and their families to the Inland Revenue Office making it an Annual Public Document,

·        Ensure uniformity in Law and Order regardless of ethnicity.

·        Create a Special Fund Cash Reserve equal to 5% of Net National Income annually. The  Reserve must be protected by Statute and prevent any movement of funds without the 2/3 majority of Parliament and Referendum.  This will enhance and stabilise the Exchange Rate of Sri Lankan currency, ensuring an increase of investor confidence and Foreign Direct Investment over a period of time.

    All patriotic Sri Lankans congratulate Gotabhaya for being nominated as the Presidential Candidate of Pohuttuwa the newly formed patriotic political party. It is no doubt the effort of many patriots who wish for an end to Jadapalanaya of Sirisena and Ranil. We salute the patriots – Wimal Weerawansa, Udaya Gammanpila, Dinesh Gunawardena and Vasudewa Nanayakkara for their painstaking efforts to bring about the Mahinda Sulanga and through that Gotabhaya to the forefront as the best option for the Presidency 2020 of Sri Lanka.

    The nation is confident that Gotabhaya will deliver as promised yesterday at his nomination. He is a man of his words and knows that he has to perform a historic duty to put right many things done and not done during the last few years. He is a patriot who loves his country and has a sense of history to boot. Most of all he has a vision for the country and the nation. He has well-meaning targets and goals. He has produced results in the past and we know he will deliver as intended in the future – not just free promises!

    He has the unenviable task of becoming the 7th President of Sri Lanka. It is a historic opportunity that needs to be taken with much dignity and responsibility. If done well he will be able to make an indelible mark on the glorious history of our nation and be one who can ink his name among the history’s greats.

    All that is required is patience, dedication and honesty of purpose to go into history as a great leader and a statesman to be remembered with love and respect for generations to come. This is what escaped Mahinda Rajapakse due to his many weaknesses; single headedness, cronyism and inability to prioritise the nation’s needs.

    With his experience in the military and then in modern technology and backed by genuine and well-meaning qualified and experienced advisors Gotabhaya can reach all the goals mentioned above.

    I join the nation in wishing him the very best and our unstinted support for all his future endeavours.

    May the Triple Gem Bless him and May All Gods look on him favourably!
