    This in other words mean, UPFA must not make the mistake that JVP made.

    To win and sustain you must not neither distance yourself nor try to con the Sinhala-Buddhists, the rightful owners of the Island.

    [Sinhala-Buddhists, the rightful owners of the Island. ]

    Sinhalese came here from India,

    Buddhism also from India,

    Sinhalese Buddhism is basically Indians,

    According to you Sri Lanka belongs to India.

    Mahinda is lucky to have a brother like Gotabhaya who is professional, efficient, honest and Knowlegable.

    Gotabhaya did not look at Politics while recommending the appointments of the Service Commanders.

    The Proper Men were put in the proper places irrespective of politics.

    If Previous leader`s also did this....the war would be over long ago.

    It is now clear why Traitor Ranil wanted Gotabhaya removed as Defence Secretary and Janaka P appointed.......

    Traitor Ranil`s choice for Def. now a UNP Politician Businessman....What a comedown!!

    Traitor Ranil as PM in 2001, appointed Austin Fernando as Def Sec...the guy had not even played with a toy gun in his childhood...

    Government has to take this article seriously.

    As an SLFP`er I have deep respect for all the UNP MP`s who supporting Mahinda`s Govt.

    They stepped in to support Mahinda at a time when our Own Ally (the JVP) were letting us down and trying to play games with us.

    These UNP MP`s put the country before themselves. What ever said and done it is not easy to for these Senior UNP leader`s to support Mahinda. They did it because it is the correct thing to do and that must be admired.

    SLFP`ers like us in the UPFA will always welcome, support and vote for the Ex-UNP MP`s who helped our Govt and the country.
