Where ever Ranil goes problems follow. He has more than 23 defeats. He never have up leadership. Then during Madam Chandrikas time he was removed from PM position in a similar manner. Now HE Sirisena did that gain in 2018. Never give up. Never run away. Motto of his alma mater is ‘Learn or Depart’ I am sure he is still learning and until he learned from books and men he will never depart. R….O….Y….A…L
Ranil Wickremasinghe is the most resilient political personality of our times.
True he has been kicked around many times, from within his Party and political colleagues.
Ranil has been and continues to be castigated as having no grassroots appeal.
However, Ranil Wickremasinghe is fundamentally the only politician of our times who strongly believes in a Parliamentary system of democracy where the aspirations of the citizens are delivered through debate and discussion, compromise and leadership in a Parliamentary environment.
Ranil Wickremasinghe learns everyday (Disce Aut Discede) and applies his learning to emerging situations.
Having fought for many causes and earned victory, Ranil has clearly demonstrated potential to walk away from the benefits of victory that accrue to him, personally.
