President Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday reiterated that no force can reverse the unparalleled victories achieved by the Security Forces against LTTE terrorism as they are fighting a war setting an example to the entire world without facing a single drawback since the Mavilaru battle to the Wanni liberation operation. He made these observations while participating at the annual War Heroes Commemoration ceremony of the Sri Lanka Sinha Regiment yesterday at the Sinha Regiment Headquarters in Ambepussa.
President Rajapaksa participated at the event along with Presidential Secretary Lalith Weeratunga, Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa and the Army Commander Lt. General Sarath Fonseka who is also from the Sinha Regiment.
I don t think there is a single battle in the world parallel to the battle fought by our Security Forces at present in which they secure victory after victory without facing a single drawback , the President added.
He also observed that the country has been fortunate enough to get a General in the calibre of Lt. General Sarath Fonseka.
He said the forward march of the valiant troops could not be stopped by the chemical weapons, air raids, earth bunds and monsoon rains. The common masses of the country show their affection and love towards these War Heroes in whatever possible way they can, but some media personnel are publishing articles discouraging and de-motivating Security Forces personnel. He further said that the common masses of the country have realized the genuine objectives of the Government in launching this war against terrorism. Our objective is to bring prosperity to the North in the same manner we did in the East , the President remarked.
