    Mr. S. Fonseka, we are very happy for this good news, but you must promise each every Sri Lankan that you will be a good leader of this country (We Need Good Leadership in this Country) that’s all we are expecting from you.

    True leaders don't seek followers, but followers seek true leaders. Let us wait and see who is a true leader.
