Despite rice and fish mafia pow-pow with Ranil :
President’s victory is crystal clear
President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s victory at the forthcoming presidential
election is pretty certain with the kingpin rice mafia and fish mafia
who opposed the supply of rice and fish at an affordable price joining
forces with the Ranil Wickremesinghe bandwagon, according to political
They said this conspiracy was hatched by the NGOs lavishing dollars
at the behest of anti-government Western forces.
Ministers Nimal Siripala de Silva, Susil Premajayantha and Wimal
Weerawansa said that President Rajapaksa will record a resounding
victory as the people’s common candidate regardless of his opponent.
Conspiracies and assassinations are nothing new to the Sri Lanka Freedom
Party but it cannot hamper the party’s progressive forward march, said
Minister Susil Premajayantha.
National Freedom Front leader Minister Wimal Weerawansa said unlike
Ranil, this common candidate is far easier to be defeated. Although it
is true that Minister Sirisena was entrapped in the ‘common candidate
bait’ laid by former President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga the
so-called common candidate could never turn the tide.
