Dr Sudath Gunasekara, Hanthana Pedesa,   Mahanuwara,

The President                                                             

Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka          

Presidential Secretariat,                                       

Colombo 1.                                                                

Dear Sir,

First of all, as an old friend, let me congratulate you on your unprecedented victory. It is like the Phoenix rising from the Ashes. It is a world record getting elected as the President of a country of 225 Member Parliament, where all are hostile, with only I vote (that is your own),. Isn’t it a miracle that has made history in world politics? I think it is your persistent endurance and patience besides, the good luck of the country, that has elected you as the President at this most critical time of our motherland

Right from the beginning, of this Presidential race I wished you be elected as the President. Looking at the other three candidates, I had no doubt about your victory, as I deem you are the only person who can take up the challenge of restoring law and order and normalcy in the country followed by regaining the trust of the people, restoring stability and rebuilding the Sri Lankas economy as out of all 225 in the present Parliament. Therefore, you are the best in the Parliament  for this high   Office of the nation at this critical hour, as I have argued in detail in my letter of 19th July circulated among all 225 in Parliament and other national leaders and the media who could exert some influence on them. (a copy attached). As you would see from this letter, definitely you were my choice. It is indeed by providence of the God, I think, you took over the nation in this extremely critical time of this Island nation,

I wish you all the success in your role as the President of this nation. I also congratulate you for appointing Dinesh as the Prime Minister and Ali Sabry as the Minister of Foreign Affairs in place of that sleepy Professor Peiris. I hope he will be a second Kadiragama in Sri Lankan politics.  

Further to the letter I sent you soon after you assumed duties as the Acting PM, I am also attaching two other letters I have published in the media. I hope they will be helpful to you, in discharging your responsibilities for the emancipation of this country and its people from the difficult times they are facing and also from the injustices and betrayals inflicted upon them by the colonial powers and also by those who mismanaged the country and its economy since the so-called 1948.

In these notes I have tried to give a summary of the just and burning aspirations of the people in this country, which all governments since 1948 have failed to fulfill. Now the ball is in your court Sir,

Once again, I wish you all success in your new assignment as the President of this beautiful Island nation, with the Blessings of the Triple Gem! 

Yours Sincerely,

Dr Sudath Gunasekara.

Hanthana, Pedesa Mahanuwara TP 071 8075326
