President Maithripala Sirisena said yesterday the dreams to topple the government would remain as mere dreams, and that there would be no room to change the present administration.

“Someone is trying to topple the government. We will not let anyone change the government illegally or by violating the Constitution. A government change is only possible with the people’s majority in 2020,” the President said.

He said regardless of the political party elected, it was the responsibility of everyone who loved the country to allow the government perform its duties in a peaceful manner.

“There will be no room to work for power, greed and political benefits again,” the President further stressed.

    Don't be so sure sir. At the first sign of trouble most.of those who are with you will dump you..It has been proven time after time. See what would happen if your party get routed at the LG election?

    Careful. Do not underestimate MR's resourcefulness. Prabhakaran said that capturing Kilinochchi was a day dream in late 2008. Look how that turned out!

    No body can topple the government if the government is humble and governs with proper principles. In such case, those who want to topple the government need to also topple the people of this nation.

    People thought toppling the previous regime was a dream too. Dont underestimate the power of the people. We voted for you, and we can vote against you too

    I guess the only dream is corruption king coming back to power. That would actually be a nightmare. via DM Android App

    Mr. President please don't overestimate your position. The greedy JO may buy some MPs from your side with the commissions they got during their term.

    "Allow the government perform its duties in a peaceful manner" while they go on the rampage like a bull in a China Shop?

    With things you have achieved and the development you have carried out over the period you were at the helm, remaining in power for the rest of the time may also be a dream!

    kanchi Friday, 06 January 2017 10:11 AM

    This kind of a boasting was made by someone several years ago.

    Malik Friday, 06 January 2017 10:48 AM

    Corrupt elements threaten the Head of States, share holders and also general public in order to get personal benefit again. I appreciate the Presidents guts to firmly outline that their is no room for ruin the country once again.

    While you are looking at MR ,Ranil will undermine you and grab your powers.Be careful!

    kumaran Friday, 06 January 2017 12:37 PM

    Just DO your job. Then you dont need to go around trying to give these "re-assurances", which are more for your comfort. Many of us worked for you and voted for you but we are all disappointed. If the voters get really fed-up, then words will not be enough.

    panduka Friday, 06 January 2017 01:05 PM

    What is the mighty hurry MR? wait till 2020 then go for election and fulfill your dream government was elected for five years people can wait till 2020 MR in 2020 you loose for the 3rd time

    Even Dreams come true; So better be careful and deliver the goods promised to your voters from your 'yahapalanaya' govt. before they get discouraged with the present govt also like they did with MR and gave you the power.
