Full text of the message:
It is a historic triumph for all of us to be able to celebrate the 68th Independence Day as a nation that prizes the values of democracy, bringing all its citizens together in a spirit of unity and strength.
Just as everyone stood together to set the country free from the grip of colonialism back then, on January 08th, Sri Lankans came together to set the nation free from the tyranny of dictatorship, corruption, nepotism and familial rule ; ensuring our return to the hallowed community of democratic nations that assure its people freedom and justice.
And now, the task before us is to ensure that the hard won freedom retains its meaning and significance; it is a task that calls for all of us to be united, irrespective of religious, ethnic and political affiliations. This indeed is the vision of the Government.
In the eyes of the world, Sri Lanka has been restored to it’s a position as a country that abides by the revered principles of democracy. Yet, before us is a formidable task of ensuring lasting peace and co-existence for all citizens while building on the concept of social economic development for the country.
On this Independence Day, let us strive to understand the challenges before us as a nation and determine to give of ourselves wholeheartedly to a noble vision of taking our country forward.

While you and your cronies sit back and watch the majority sweat and bleed. Collectively what has the bufoons that sit in prliament and debate on how to govern and has no clue about governing. You start off with taking an oath and most like it would be something like
and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws
No sooner you Ranil usurped into power fortunately not absolute power have been using all your energies to corrupt the system to achieve your end in trying to introduce a new constitution a Constitution that you swore to defend and rule by. All that is forgotten now.
By the end of WWI the colonial empire collapsed the British were forced to evacuate and as a philanthropic gesture liberated the colonies that were not ready to be governed so for Ranil to calim that we fought for independence was false.
