President Mahinda fly to Delhi

(January 25, Colombo, Sri Lanka Guardian) According to information reaching through reliable sources confirm, President Mahinda Rajapakse is now flying to Delhi in a special jet. It is unclear why the President has decided to fly to Delhi suddenly without engaging in the election process.

One source confirmed that the President made arrangements with the Indian political leadership to have an urgent meeting as the indications of voting in the election are expected to be unfavourable for him. The President is expected to request for Indian military intervention to prevent his opponent Gen Sarath Fonseka becoming the President.

It is unclear how India could pre-empt and militarily intervene to thwart a democratic decision of the people.

When Sri Lanka Guardian contacted a source close to the President Mahinda Rajapakse, he rubbished the claim of Mahinda’s desperation and said, ‘the President is flying to Delhi for a special religious pooja at a Hindu temple somewhere in Delhi’.
