India to help Rajapaksa – Sirisena Alliance

by Our Diplomatic Editor
( September 15, 2018, New Delhi, Sri Lanka Guardian) In an interesting move of the bilateral relation between India and Sri Lanka, the policymakers in New Delhi are now advocating to form the new alliance between the incumbent President of Sri Lanka Maithripala Sirisena and his predecessor former President Mahinda Rajapaksa who was in New Delhi to address an event organised by the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, last week, reliable sources based in New Delhi told Sri Lanka Guardian.
In an earlier attempt the New Delhi wing on Sri Lanka was mapping to support the booming young leaders in the United National Party to further shrink Rajapaksa’s political power but the recent comment by its leadership gave a negative signal.

Prime Minister Wickramasinghe, the leader of the UNP reaffirmed that he will hand over the leadership of the party to young leaders in 2030. Therefore, the Indian strategies on Sri Lanka are redesigning the next move where they have decided to take Rajapaksa into the larger picture.
However, “nothing has been finalized,” sources added. “We are passing the hour of need to re-engineer the political structure in Sri Lanka to enhance our friendship,” sources further added.
Meanwhile, “how you are going to win the heart and mine of the Tamil people if you are planning to come back to govern your respective nation, a top man who met with Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa in New Delhi asked,” a reliable source said.
Rajapaksa as a politician who never kept zipped mouth in any situation, responses quickly with detailed answers about the help he has done to the Tamil Community. But, unfortunately, the answer was not well received.
Meanwhile, there was a detailed discussion with Rajapaksa about the Chinese influence in the Island.
Imagine the next presidential poll in 2020, President Sirisena as a candidate promoting Rajapaksa as his Prime Minister, a key level political source in New Delhi nodded.
