A Peoples President mingle with crowds celebrating nation's victory...

The Peoples President mingle with crowds celebrating nation's victory...

Having accomplished the most important and impossible national task of wiping out LTTE terrorism from the face of the Sri Lankan earth, the man who traversed many a street and every corner in his life and journey in politics, last night was seen mingling with the crowds celebrating the victory over LTTE terrorism in the city of Colombo.
This charismatic personalty, known as the 'Peoples Friend' in all time politics was none other than the Head of State,President Mahinda Rajapaksa, who in his life felt quite comfortable mingling with the crowds. Terrorism distanced him from the people for a brief period.But, his mind was with the people.That was deeply demonstrated last night when the people touched and worshipped him when he made an unannounced,sudden and surprise visit to the city and visited many areas.
President Mahinda Rajapaksa began his surprise visit to the people celebrating the victory of the armed forces, from the President's House and traversed through Thimbirigasyaya, Kirulapona, Nugegoda, Maharagama and cut across through Boralesgamauwa where he paid a sudden visit to a house that had organised a pirith chanting ceremony to invoke blessings on the President, the gallant armed forces and the nation. The people at the venue could not believe their eyes when they saw a familiar face making entry into the venue.The President quite solemn and silent stood in a corner and participated at that religous event.The people there were jubilant and emotionally moved.They later embraced the President, thanked him, touched him and worshipped him for freeing them from the menace of terrorism. He took leave amidst pleas to wait longer with them.
Thereafter, the President visited the Udamaluwa at the Bellanwila Raja Mahaviharaya to pay homage and later met the venerable monks at the temple.The prelates too thanked the Head of State and invoked blessings on him for his remarkable service and dedication to wipe out terrorism to free his nation and the people.At every turn he alighted from his vehicle, the jubilant crowds embraced him and the President moved freely holding the hands of little children, whom he cherished most as a father of three children.He told the crowds, and especially the kids, that he saved the nation for them and completed his (the President's) responsibility by all generations."I want you all to walk freely in your country without fear now.I have saved this country for you.Don't fear now go anywhere you like",a smiling President quipped in an overjoyed style.The little kids around the President hung onto the hands of the President to thank him.In his own inimitable style, the President,with one foot inside the vehicle and the other on the ground waved long and longer to the jubilant crowds reluctant to take his leave, to work another day for the nation and the people.

The Commanders of the three armed forces have been promoted to the next rank with immediate effect.
Accordingly, the President in his capacity as the Commander-in-chief of the three armed forces promoted Army Commander Lt. General Sarath Fonseka to the rank of General, Navy Commander Vice Admiral Wasantha Karannagoda to the rank of Admiral and Air Force Commander Air Vice Marshal Roshan Gunathilaka to the rank of Air Chief Marshal.
The Presidential media unit says that these promotions were granted in return to the accomplishment of duties assigned in the fight to save the country from terrorism.



While many LTTE supporters in London refused to accept the death of their leader Velupillai Prabhakaran military sources said two individuals who closely knew Prabhakaran, namely Minister Vinayagamoorti Muralidharan alias karuna Amman and Daya Master have positively identified the dead body as the remains of the LTTE leader.
Karuna Amman was the former deputy leader of the terrorist outfit and Daya Master was the media spokesman of the group in the past. Both traveled to the battlefield to identify the man whom they knew so well.
Sri Lanka Army Commander General Sarath Fonseka in his statement said the dead body of the LTTE leader was found by the 53rd Division troops led by Major General Kamal Gunaratne on Tuesday may 19.
Interviewed by the state owned ITN TV karuna Amman said it was definitely the body of Velupillai Prabhakaran whom he knew so well. He said the Sri Lankan armed forces dedicated their lives and limbs to end this war of 30 years on behalf of the suffering Tamil people of Sri Lanka. Although various international agents attacked Sri Lanka, now many realize the truth karun Amman said. To build a new united Sri Lanka the whole nation should rally round the President he added.
Defence officials said Prabhakaran’s bullet ridden body was discovered near Nanthikadal Lagoon’s marshy area in the Mulaittivu district.
