President returns after extended stay in US

President Gotabaya Rajapaksa returned to Sri Lanka today after an extended stay in the US.

The President left for New York on 18th September to attend the UN General Assembly.

He met UN Secretary-General António Guterres on 20th September and addressed the UN General Assembly on 22nd September.

The 76th Session of the UN General Assembly ended on 30th September.

In a Facebook post Rajapaksa said that he met his granddaughter for the first time while in the US.

“During my recent visit to the United States to attend the UN General Assembly, I was able to see my granddaughter for the first time. I extend my best wishes again to my son Manoj and daughter Sevwandi on becoming parents for the first time,” he said.

The President took key decisions from the US despite being away after the completion of his scheduled meetings. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Welcome back Mr President. Now you can deal with the embedded corruption in your family and the nation. Otherwise, book your ticket back to the United States, because, given your current performance, that is where you will be heading after the next election.

  2. உங்கள் மகன், மருமகள் மற்றும் பேத்திக்கு இலங்கையில் எதிர்காலம் இல்லை என்பது தெரியும். அடிப்படையில், உங்கள் தலைமைத்துவ திறன்களை அவர்கள் அறிவார்கள். அதனால்தான் அவர்கள் இன்னும் அமெரிக்காவில் இருக்கிறார்கள். நீங்களோ அல்லது உங்கள் எதிர்கால சந்ததியோ வளர்ந்த நாட்டில் வாழ மாட்டீர்கள். ஒரு தெற்காசிய நாடு கூட வளர்ந்த நாடாக மாறும் திறன் இல்லை.

    ඔබේ පුතා සහ මිණිබිරිය දන්නවා ඔවුන්ට ලංකාවේ අනාගතයක් නැති බව. මූලික වශයෙන් ඔවුන් ඔබේ නායකත්ව හැකියාවන් දනී. ඔවුන් තවමත් එක්සත් ජනපදයේ සිටින්නේ එබැවිනි. ඔබ හෝ ඔබේ අනාගත පරම්පරාව දියුණු රටක ජීවත් වන්නේ නැත. සංවර්ධිත රටක් වීමේ හැකියාවක් එක් දකුණු ආසියානු රටකටවත් නැත.

    Your son, daughter in law and granddaughter know that they have no future in Sri Lanka. Basically, they know your leadership capabilities. That’s why they are still in the US. You or your future generations will not live in a developed country. Not even one South Asian country has the capacity to become a developed country.
