    Srilanka’s problem is not Sirisena. It is a systemic problem accumulated over 70 years. From DS to Sirisena, all the leaders used misused power, violated law & order, misused institutions for their own benefits and majority of people blindly supported their actions.

    The crux of an issue of security is not that only State,govt. and rules of Lankan society ,what we are looking for security day to day lives of citizens of of all nationalities of 22 million of People of Sri lankan?
    In my view govt.whom in a head of ruling party in power which is immaterial us who ever the helmsman in state; give proper guarantee to safety of security to be maintain daily life Free from thetern from fear stress…violences from numerous Terrorist political out-fits of JVP, LTTE and Islam terrorist of ISIS or local Muslim Thafike Jammad led Al Baghdadi!
    Since 15/1/8 ongoing regime of hard that core leadership of UNP’s of that MS, RW & CBK while after change by foreign -power of USA UK EU Japan and Indian, has been ‘liberalized entire state’ security operation by RW +CBK. ..UNP leaders.
    These change subject effects that also including apparatus of “Nation Intelligence” agencies by that looked the vital Interest of Western Big -Power.
    Our People lost their sovereignty and independence of the policy making decision has shifted , nation threatened by Terrorist of violence of handful of Muslim-ISIS, Tamils of LTTE+TNA and JVP has been put in beside by heads of states President Primer and Deputy to Defence of that political authorities.
    Meanwhile national interest do not reflected top priority agenda of Intelligence services by head of state. All reports NOT taken into requirements of citizens that Top priority of domestic security needs by UNP leaders.
    By and large UNP regime headed by Wickramasinghe clan has discarded all Intelligence services advicies and reports very inception he assumed political power from the President by ady of 15/1/8.
    The Top level of national intelligence reports of concern nation security advice has been replace by foreign agencies and their think-tanks officers by Primer and President of Republic .
