    Hats off to the President and Defence Secretary for the leadership and the greatest heroes in the world, SL Security Forces for the sacrifices they have done......... Today the souls of Captain Aladeniya and his team mates who shed their lives for this tower will have relief...... Hail Mother Lanka with her sons of North and South linked over this tower...Let's prepare for the upcoming fierce battle with double Standard US, West and their boot licking Ban-Ki Moon. Let's show that they could get over Sri Lanka only over our dead bodies.

    Dearest H.E. the President......this is high time you discarded the political cancers and crooks who are damaging your image while being in your circles.... We need you as we were the true forces behind you since 2005..... Please don't let the enymy within.......Still we are are not late. Hardware like this can make a change only when good governence prevails.
