If Mahinda Chintana rejected by the whole world is to continue– the country will soon be in darkness and disaster – Ranil Wickremesinghe

The Mahinda Chintana has been rejected by the whole world because of the Government’s obstinacy totally disregarding valuable international advice. Consequently, the Government is plunging the country into an era of total darkness and disaster, said Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe at a meeting of the UNP parliamentarians on 21st May at the Parliament complex.

It is the International opinion that if the LTTE war for a separate state and its terrorism are to be defeated the only way out is a politically negotiated solution, he emphasized.

United States, Japan, European Union, India and other recognized countries have time and again underlined the need for a negotiated solution. Now, China too shares this opinion.

A negotiated solution taking into account the concerns and interests of all communities, the Tamils, Sinhalese, Muslims and Burghers and their representations must be scrupulously studied in depth; and a solution based on the foundation of a single nation should be arrived at.

The whole world which has understood that the Rajapakse regime is without a clue and a plan as to this issue; and is aimlessly moving in an uncharted sea has disdainfully rejected the Government’s methods.

The inevitable result of the Government’s inflexible and recalcitrant attitude is the global rejection of the Mahinda Chintana .In the circumsytances, being unable to extricate the country from the current economic impasse, the President has to seek aid from a country like Jordan, he added.

Mahinda Rajapakse assured the masses loudly from election platforms that if the world market oil prices rise, he would get oil at low prices from Jordan for the people. What happened to these promises? Wickremesinghe asked.

The Rajapakse Government which has become bankrupt because of its own bungling, and which has destroyed its image internationally, is now doing its rounds to form a National Government. It has transpired that Rajitha Seneviratne has inquired about this from Parliamentary M.P. Gamini Jayawickrema Perera.

If the President wishes to form a National Government, Gamini Jayawickrema Perera has advised that the best move would be to discuss with the Opposition Leader on this, Ranil Wickremesinghe related.

UNP being a party which respects party discipline will in such a circumstance refer to the Executive Committee for its decision.

Sri Lanka’s problems cannot be solved by Political cunning and duplicity. The way the Mahinda Chintana is being implemented by the Rajapakse only paving the way for the country’s downfall and darkness.

If Sri Lanka is to be saved from the impending disaster, the UNP has to go ahead with its programs and policies, concluded Wickremesinghe.
