President a blessing

Prime Minister D M Jayaratne in a congratulatory message to President Mahinda Rajapaksa on the swearing-in to the presidency for a second term and on the President’s birthday states:
“I, as the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka, extend my heartiest and warmth compliments both on the occasion of Swearing-in Presidency for a second term as well as on the birthday of the greatest leader ever born in Sri Lanka since independence.
“It is the wisdom and commitment of a leader that makes the people to raise him to that high office, to defence him and even to let him continue, when there are hundreds and thousands of politicians who make their way to power with the support of the public.
I never think it is verbose and flattering to call President Mahinda Rajapaksa, a Great Man of the Era and a blessing to the whole nation.
Liberating both Sri Lanka and a population of twenty million from an ill-fated thirty-year long war alone, would be sufficient to demonstrate the unshaken leadership of him.
