    The crowd at this meeting tells it all. Ranil and this Leadership Council has no public support. The time has dawned for the General's party.

    Our present two leaders are not born or in politics in Colombo city. They are from village areas. Therefore they easily get caught to an ethnocentric peoples’ business tactics and now cannot do anything as they have been trapped by these ethnocentric people business groups in Colombo and out of Sri Lanka. When UNP put Muzzammil to CMC UPFA put Morogoda, as our political leaders have been under pressure by ethnocentric people not to split Muslim votes in Colombo. They wanted an ethnocentric leader at CMC. Later Moragoda resigned and UPFA late Maharoof became the Deputy Mayor. This created a monopoly of ethnocentric political leadership in Colombo CMC. Last year CMC made regulations making it compulsory to register Wesak Danselas.

    The duty free permits which are freely traded without legal restrictions in Sri Lanka involving top leaders of Sri Lanka is carried out through some major ethnocentric business families in hardware industry in Flower Road near UAE embassy. It is a shame that our political leaders do vehicle permit business with them as they leak all out to the society without knowledge of the political leaders all their dealings.

    All Pakistan based Heroin dealers are linked to Taliban terror group and Sri Lankan leaders going to Israel and preaching that Sri Lanka supports Israel and Palestine existing side by side in peace can be viewed in relation to our leaders’ links to Pakistan Heroin industry and which in turn linked to Taliban terror group. Whatever UN says the truth is that Israel will find hard to exist in middle east peacefully as long as Middle East has Sharia law. Therefore what Sri Lankan leaders say to Israel is wrong and can be because of influence of ethnocentric groups’ pressure through Heroin related activities on our leaders.
