Be respectful when celebrating victory – Gotabaya
Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna’s presidential contender Gotabaya Rajapaksa, who remained confident of his election victory, has urged the supporters to be respectful when celebrating the victory once the results are officially declared.
Speaking at a rally held in Tissamaharama area, Rajapaksa said the SLPP had carried out its election campaign with respectful and exemplary conduct.
“As we expect to establish a quality and efficient government, we request the people to celebrate the victory in a dignified manner without inconveniencing others” he added.
Addressing the mass further, the former Defence Secretary said the incumbent government, who had been in power for many years failed to do anything for the sake of the people.
“My opponents have gone to courts again to question whether I am a Sri Lankan or not. I was born in Palatuwa. Palatuwa is not located in America. It is in Matara. How is it then that I am not a Sri Lankan citizen?” Gotabaya Rajapaksa said at his final election rally held at Weerawila in Hambantota this morning (13).
Rajapaksa said these false allegations are levelled against him as his opponents are on the verge of defeat.
“My opponents are engaging in a very different type of election campaign with such mudslinging” Gotabaya Rajapaksa claimed.
Addressing the rally held at Galle, the former Defence Secretary said the local manufacturers have seen a downfall in every sector today, while gem, biscuit and footwear companies have also crashed.
Measures must be introduced to protect the local industrialist, planter and farmer, Rajapaksa stressed.

Yes, we do not want post election violence. Who ever win the prez election should be humble and start serving mother Lanka. To start with he has to remove all unnecessary taxes. I also head some politicians already packing their bags to go to West (same as Basil did in 2015).
A great victory awaits Mr GR on Saturday night.
A new era will be born on the 17th Nov 2019.
Milk and honey pouring into the soul of the Nation.
A Land of prosperity and growth; a land of plenty; a land where justice and fairness rules day and night.
Hold you breath folks, Utopia awaits us.
LEAVING ON A JET PLANE
All my bags are packed
I’m ready to go
I’m standin’ here outside Central Bank’s door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye with a wicked smile
But the dawn is breakin’
It’s early morn
The taxi’s & not ‘white van’s’ waitin’
He’s blowin’ his horn
Already I’m so lonesome
I could die
but when I think of what I have stashed away pitarata, I’m so giddy with laughter…
Hon Ranil Wickremasinghe should resign as PM and as Leader of the UNP on Sunday 17 Nov, when a New President (whoever it is) is elected.
Hon Ranil Wickremasighe is a true democrat but is totally incapable of dealing with social issues and justice.
Mr/Ms Karusha Bome, Ranil will resign! Do not ask feathers from a turtle!
