Today the General feeling within the private sector is that the Ranil - Sirisena government is doing very poorly, that there is indecision and the President and Prime Minister cannot agree on most things. The news papers also Highlights this over and over again in their editorials. The Hiru and Sirasa News only focus on the negative news. The protest in the Colombo city continue on a daily basis, without any action. At every business forum the ineffectiveness of the government is highlighted.
Ironically the UNP has no one other than a handful who have been effectively sidelined by the fly by night new heroes to defend the government at any forum. Where is Charitha Ratwatte, Paskaralingem, Saman Ekanayake, Dr Coomarasawmy and Mangala Yapa? They do nothing while the government walks from one crisis to another any get lambasted. Why are they silent? They are only there to look after their interests. The Rajapakse's were smart, they appointed people who were loyal to them and the party. They would do anything to protect the Rajapaksa government.
Many of the key appointments made by this government has been short sighted and done at the whims of people like Ratwatte and Samarawickrama. If the government hopes to run for four years, changes have to be made now. The government is about to crash land for want of leadership at certain key institutions. (LankaNewsWeb)
