    Congratulations for the historic appointment of my name sake as Sri Lanka Naval Chief. I have been out of the country for over 20 years mainly due to the corrupt regime of Dr. N.M. Pereras secretary L.O.Silva, when I was serving the Valuation Dept. in charge of the takeover of estates and land over 50 acres. I was prevented from entering the country for 5 years. Every thing is ok now.

    All of us should thank to Honorable President Mahinda Rajapaksa and defence secretary Gotabaya Rajapksa, on behalf of fixing upon eligible gentleman as the Commander of the Sri Lanka Navy.
