UNP National Organiser S.B. Dissanayake in a letter to his party leader Ranil Wickremesinghe has expressed confidence Mr Wickremesinghe would win the Presidential election.
?Your victory is the victory of peace, you victory is the victory of intelligence, your victory is my victory, your victory is the victory of all Sri Lankans and your victory is the victory of our future children,? Mr Dissanayake said in a letter to Mr Wickremesinghe.
In his letter Mr. Dissanayake says he had a little hope that President Kumaratunga would correct the grave political mistakes she had committed but with only a few days for the Presidential elections his hope of joining the election fight has been dashed.?There are only few days more for the historic Presidential elections which would determine the future of our mother country in the next century. Our candidate is you. I will not be released prior to the election. Also the charges levelled against you by the State media would continue up to the elections day.?
He says that the UNP should not be moved by the behaviour of the state media. ?The more you are insulted more the people would rally round you,? Mr Dissanayake says and warns of the possibility of the State using thuggery as a last resort to stop the UNPs forward march.
He states in his letter that Mr Wickremesinghe is capable of uniting the divided country and chase away the blood thirsty chauvinistic murderers and religious fanatics.
?Country destroyed will be re-built by you. The dead economy would be resuscitated by you. I who am imprisoned for the past 11 months without seeing either the sun or the moon for five months would be free to join the people again under you,? Mr. Dissanayake states in his letter.
