A Historic Memorandum Of Understanding
Today will go down in Sri Lankan history as a momentous day. Today the two main parties of Sri Lanka The Sri Lanka Freedom Party & The United National Party has entered in to a historic Memorandum Of Understanding on Six common issues to Sri Lankan problems.
This is unprecedented in Sri Lankan policies, where major elections are marred by the winners abusing the loser party supporters, violence & even killings. But the current President Mahinda Rajapakse has shown that he is above these petty politics & expressed his willingness for an understanding with the major opposition parties to take Sri Lanka forward. He had already shown that he is no push over, by staunchly resisting against the LTTE terrorists while expressing his commitment to the peace process.
Opposition leader also must be praised for this effort, because for sure there was few who didn’t want this to happen. They want to topple this democratically elected government by any means what so ever& get to power. So, they can keep profiting, taking bribes & all other dirty things. But MR. Ranil Wickramasinghe has taken the brave & sensible decision of supporting the government within a frame work for the good of the nation.
Very well done fellas! Lets hope this situation prevails. If all are sincerely committed to it, this will take Sri Lanka forward. Otherwise unfortunately there will be no hope. For this is truly the last chance saloon for Sri Lanka.
