Country needs brave leadership that loves people: MR
Opposition Leader Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday said that what Sri Lanka needed in the future is a brave leadership that loved its people.
Addressing an event held at the Vihara Mahadevi Park in Colombo to mark the second-month anniversary of the Easter Sunday attack, Mr. Rajapaksa said the incumbent leaders had shied away from taking the responsibility of the attacks.
“Not a single statement was made from the government assuring that such terror attacks would not repeat. If there’s anyone with an iota of knowledge of terrorism in this government, it is Sarath Fonseka, the former army commander. He says this threat cannot be eradicated easily and will get worse if things continue the way it is,” he said.
He said because of the terrorist activities of a handful of people, the entire Muslim community suffered today.
“They are being looked at suspiciously. I believe the Muslim community is the most affected by this. They have a responsibility, Muslim leaders and religious leaders, to go for the rehabilitation of people with extremist ideologies. Only they can end this. The government has already given up,” he said.
Meanwhile, he said they were ready to face any election and added a government of theirs would give the priority to ensure the safety of all Sri Lankans.

Two things in this speech of the fearless Kurakkan Satakaya leader.
He praises Fld Marshall Fonseka for his knowledge and approach to terrorism.
He smiled when his own brother jailed the Great Sarath Fonseka for 3 years under trumped up charges which corrupt Judges subservient to the Great Leader and his Family, accepted.
The future of ‘Brave Leadership’ is shown in the picture. The brave leadership consists of not less than 7 Rajapaksa Family members holding important portfolios controlling the nation’s wealth and other hangers on like Mahinda Amaraweera, Wimal Weerawansa and Udaya Gammanpila picking up morsels from the Grand Rajapaksa Table of corruption.
“President Maithripala Sirisena states that the country will benefit only if the 18th and 19th Amendments to the Constitution are abolished.”
Aney Sirisena Gamrala, gedara yanna welawe lasthi, Auyubowan.
Sri Lanka needs change yesterday for sure! The present unholy matrimony of inept & backboneless PM Ranil and opportunistic & power-hungry Prez Sira has been, a now proven beyond doubt disaster for the nation! These two are neither brave nor do they love the people. Despite all the warnings of impending 21/4 ISIS/NTJ Muslim terrorist attacks, they did nothing to protect the people. They were both so focused on not upsetting their traditional majority Muslim voter base, they ignored publicly made “death to all non-Muslims” cry of NTJ Zaharan’s cry and also let some of their loyal Muslim politicians sweep under the carpet the fast growing Muslim extremism in the nation, the horrific end result of which we saw on 21/4. Simply speaking, they had no balls to stop this horror from happening and they should be sent home packing yesterday!
The UNF is gearing up to RW as Presidential candidate and Champika Ranawaka as PM.
Champika gets along well with the UNP; he is a technocrat focused on the economy and development.
The JVP will field its candidate; however Champika could draw many JVP votes towards UNF.
GR’s renunciation of US Citizenship yet to be listed.
