S.Sakthikreevan, the President of the Jaffna Hindu Council has pointed out to the new President Gotabhaya Rajapakse that, he should win the hearts of Tamil people like his victory in the Presidential Election.
It has given us much pleasure that you have won the Presidential Election with a majority of more than a Million votes.
The Tamil people not voting you indicate that you have not won their hearts. It is credit to you that you brought the long drawn war to an end.
It is unlucky that you, who brought the war to an end, being unable to win the minds of the Tamil people, by solving their long drawn problems. As you have not placed forward any solution, I believe that you will interpret, Tamil people not voting you, that they have expressed their feelings.
I hereby request that at a time when you have taken over country, that you should take action to solve the problems of Tamil people, win their minds and create a situation where Tamil people also rally round you like Sinhalese people in the next President’s Election, he had said.
