Can Gen. Fonseka rule country? Asks NFF

Commenting on widespread rumours that Chief of Defence Staff General Sarath Fonseka would emerge as a common candidate for the Opposition at a future Preside-ntial election, Puttalam District, National Freedom Front parliamentarian Weerakumara Dissanayake said that the General may have led the country to victory in a war but the problem is whether he could rule a country.

Dissanayake was addressing the NFF Anuradhapura District inaugural rally held at the Youth Centre on Tuesday. It was presided by NFF leader Wimal Weerawansa.

He said the common candidate and General Sarath Fonseka have become a common topic these days in day to day discussions among the people.

"We must now strengthen the hands of President Mahinda Rajapaksa who defeated the LTTE. Everyday there are conspiracies to destabilize the country including the Channel 4 and the Hillary Clinton episodes. There are conspiracies to topple the Government and to install one to the conspirators’ liking.

"Ranil Wickremasinghe sought a mandate by devolving power while Mahinda Rajapaksa sought a mandate to defeat terrorism. The war was won by taking the correct political decision. We are prepared to face any challenge since we have the correct political framework and the UPFA had become an organization trusted by the masses," Dissanayake said.
