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 yesterday.

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.
