While offering my heartfelt congratulations to Gotabaya Rajapaksa on his election as the President of our beloved country it is important to note his road to success was not an easy one.

It is suffice to say the mood nationwide was reminiscent of the day in May 2009 when Tiger guerrillas were militarily defeated once and for all.

By winning the election handsomely with the support of Mahinda Rajapaksa the duo have debunked myths that prevailed in our country for a second time now. It is no secret we all believed Sri Lankan elections are not winnable without the support of at least one extremist group from a minority party.

The duo similarly had earlier destroyed a theory of an unwinnable war to the dismay of the international masters at the time.

What is sad to the readers of English print media was most of the views, information and forecasts thrashed out by regular set of journalists were off the mark. Those looked stale and repetitive without taking the pulse of the mass. Among others Jehan Perera, Rajan Philips, Kumar David, Cassendra Cry and Harim Peiris were paying hosannas to a spoilt yahapalana regime with an unwavering conviction of its return to power at the election.

I am sure readers would value very much to read columns from a fresh bunch of journalists in touch with the hoi polloi instead.
Daily Mirror on line comments are taken over by unpatriotic group with no space for others.

It was difficult to imagine the majority populace of the country would find so soon an affable charismatic leader to embrace with the warmth shown towards Mahinda Rajapaksa but in Gotabaya they have found one no doubt.
