Good Governance in tatters
The Daily Mirror on Tuesday published an interview with UNP parliamentarian and former Army Commander, Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka. His answers were forthright and candid, uncoloured by innuendos or euphemisms.
The 6.2 million, who voted for the common candidate at the 2015 January 8th presidential election, expected much from the man they elected as president
Mr. Fonseka also said something quite revealing, in fact he had mentioned it in Parliament as well, that according to his contacts in the Security Council (SC) the warnings of an impending attack by Islamic extremists had been brought up on some 15 different occasions, but that whenever they were mentioned at the SC, the President’s response had been to look up at the ceiling saying nothing. The 6.2 million, who voted for the common candidate at the 2015 January 8th presidential election, expected much from the man they elected as president, but have ended up disappointed with nothing to speak of other than the October 26th conspiracy aided and abetted by those who did their utmost to defeat him in 2015 and now within sight of the end of his tenure came the April 21 carnage and three weeks later the sectarian violence in the North-western Province all because he refused to heed the warnings of looming danger.
