    Well said Sir! It is good to recognize a great leader instead of acting like hynenas yapping at the heels of an elephant as our opposition is doing. Our opposition have no good ideas of their own. So they come out with vile accusations and statements against President Mahinda which have no factual basis. At every turn they are trying to divide the country by sowing seeds of discord while the President is trying hard to heal the country from 30 years of war. May he live long and prosper and lead our country to greatness!

  2. Fran Diaz Says:
