Victory Message of winning Sri Lanka Podujana Party (SLPP), from former president Mahinda Rajapakse

My dear Sri Lankans, I request you to celebrate our resounding and hard fought victory peacefully, without any violence.

This victory is for every Sri Lankan, it is the triumph of the people.

The results show that our Tamil and Muslim brothers and sisters have also placed faith in us once again and want to rebuild Sri Lanka.

Therefore it is pertinent that we celebrate peacefully as citizens of this great island nation.

P.M. Mahinda Rajapakse
Former President
