This is not a win of Sinhales or Tamils or Muslims. This win is for All Sri Lankans.

While the people of Sri Lanka congratulate your success at this election, they also warn you to uphold democracy and protect the nation from being torn apart by the undesirables – especially the Tamils that want a separate homeland. Then those like Ranil that is waiting in the wings to grab power relegating you to sidelines. This win is yours and people voted you in and not Ranil or Chandrka who have ruined the country in the past.
