President will romp home
President Mahinda Rajapaksa will win the forthcoming Presidential
poll with an absolute majority as it is clearly seen that all sections
of people in the country are rallying round him, SLFP General Secretary,
Agriculture and Mahaveli Development Minister Maithreepala Sirisena said
Addressing a SLFP press conference at the Mahaveli Centre he said the
President had clearly made the people understand his leadership in
winning the humanitarian operations against the LTTE terrorists and also
implementing mega development programs that accelerated the economic
development of the country.
The people strongly felt the freedom from fear that existed even when
President Mahinda Rajapaksa was elected four years back. Today they were
enjoying the newly won freedom and were rallying in massive numbers at
the public meetings held to support his candidature, the Minister noted.
Continuing he said on the other hand the NDF candidate’s behaviour
and words used in addressing the public appears crazy and is an
indication of his defeat.
He sometimes used the slang used in the army by some high ups on
lower ranks. The UNP and the JVP have started unleashing violence like
the cases in Tangalla or Anamaduwa as they want to use violence to
instill fear into people.
They will have to face the repercussions of their own violence as the
public were aware of their past records.
Three public opinion polls have been conducted and each one showed
that President Mahinda Rajapaksa was miles ahead of the NDF candidate.
The UNP and the JVP could live in their dreams for another few days but
on January 27 they will wake up with the reality of realizing that
President Mahinda Rajapaksa cannot be defeated.
