Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa says that a clear mandate is required to defeat local and foreign conspiracies against the country. The premier added that if the Yahapalana cabal had won the 2019 Presidential Election, they would have implemented the agendas of foreign conspirators and finished off Sri Lanka. Making a special statement on “Defeating domestic and foreign conspiracies against Sri Lanka”, Prime Minister Rajapaksa stressed that although the conspirators lost the Presidential Election, they have not given up their quest. He added that his request to the people of Sri Lanka is to always have the broader picture in mind when it comes to politics. Given the threats we are up against, we will be destroyed if we fail to distinguish between what is politically important and politically unimportant,” the Prime Minister said. “If we are able to distinguish what is important from what is unimportant, and always have the broader picture in mind, our people will always be the winners.”
