A thirty-year ended within a three-year period of time due to the strong bond between the head of state and the defence secretary, Opposition Leader Mahinda Rajapaksa said. 

Addressing a meeting held in his official residence today (13) with a group of Sri Lankan expatriates who had come to Sri Lanka to vote for the presidential election, the MP said that he as the head of state and his brother, Gotabaya Rajapaksa, as the defence secretary shared a great bond which navigated the victory of war and the express development of the country thereafter. 

The present government has gone to crisis dragging the country along with it as there was no mutual understanding between the president and the prime minister, Rajapaksa said. 

After Mr. Gotabaya Rajapaksa is elected as President, they together will form a new government as mutually committed President and Prime Minister on the path to developing the country, he added.
