Mirror Mirror who is the Cleverest in the Land?
on learning about the declaration of Emergency in Sri Lanka, I rang the most
vulnerable member of our common family in
Colombo, to find out whether she was ok. She sounded ok and said she would contact
me if she did not feel ok. My intuitive feeling was confirmed by Mr Rajapaksa
who is reported to have stated as follows:
“The local and foreign forces seeking to destabilise this country are trying to engineer another 1983 style conflagration to drum up support for their constitutional reforms which seek to divide this country into several semi-independent states,” - adaderana.lk report headed ‘Rajapaksa urges citizens to refrain from all acts of violence’
