  1. Remove the Army from the North, release all private lands to its owners in the North and East, release all the political prisoners, devolve administrative powers to the provinces by introducing a federal form of government under a united Sri lanka where all provinces share power with the centre.

    • You get nothing until you are faithful to your motherland. Currently, you are faithful to Indians and to the Westerners. Find Eelam in Canada(2nd largest country in the world) or in the US(3rd largest country in the world) or in Australia(6th largest country in the world)

  2. Mr President you can say whatever fancy to get votes, but the truth is recently I bought coconut oil and salt in Jaffna. Those two products are made in India. Few decades ago this country produced enough coconut oil and salt. Speaking of manufacturing, this country is going backward. Speaking of development, you have achieved nothing significantly since January 2015.

  3. Dear mr Sirisena, please do not do any more disasters to SLFP party. Probably you are planning to appoint another person as the leader of SLFP and run away from the damage you did within last 16 months. Please transfer your leadership to joint opposition peacefully and let them to rebuild the country again. Your de facto marriage with UNP has let the westerners to destroy the country.
