Letter to Mr. Gotabaya Rajapaksa

Dear Mr. Gotabaya,

Hope you are well. I am not sure whether you have time to read my message, but I hope you read it one day.

I am one of the silent majority who wish and pray that you win with a majority tomorrow. I left my motherland when I was 23 years old, but I still love the country I was born 60 years ago.

I never had the opportunity to vote in my motherland, but I always wish to see that my country will prosper and the innocent people will have an opportunity to live peacefully no matter what their background or race.

I know that you have a clear vision to lead this country for the next 5 years. Hope and wish that you will have good health to lead this country for the next generation. I know that you have an agenda to help the youth especially kids who cannot continue their education after year 12 exams, and unable to enter University. The country can prosper with a good leader, and I truly believe that you have a dream for this beautiful nation, and people around you will support you wholeheartedly for your vision.

Please promote tourism like Vietnam where we visited villagers on a group tour and we saw how they promote local creations and allow people with talents to perform for tourists to make some money. Our motherland is rich with natural resources, and poor people should get some opportunity (creating local jobs) to earn a living not big corporations.

My last wish is to build up the economy you need strong characters with qualification and knowledge and not people who shout and embarrassed you. You ran an excellent campaign and will reap the rewards tomorrow.

May God protect and bless you.


James Lasantha Jayalath
