The President and the Prime Minister attended an event in Colombo  on Tuesday where a book, The Great November Revolution penned by Dinesh Weerakkody was launched.

The president stated that there was a revolution but we need to identify the counter-revolution and it is paramount that we act on this counter revolution.

The president further stated:

We all believe that is important to operate to create a government, maintain that government and to face the future. People engage in politics and that is why it has become complex. While the issues are also of a complex nature and they are challenging, it is paramount that we all understand that.

Prime Minister,Ranil Wickremesinghe stated:

We were successful because we came to fulfill the aspirations of the people and that is why we are in power – and we are the government.

He further stated:

The challenge we face now is, are the tasks being carried out. We need to keep that in mind because it is easy to come into power but it is difficult to protect that power and act on it. This is simply the start. There is a long journey ahead. The start is good and that is why we have faith on our journey

Religious leaders, ministers, MPs and many others were present for this event.
