The then Defense Minister Gotabaya was given all possible support to end the LTTE, which would give the Sri Lankan army dangerous weapons from China and Pakistan. And soon Sri Lanka got rid of violence.
Mahinda Rajapaksa, a two-time president, liberated the country from dangerous terrorist organizations. He could not become the President for the third time, so he made his younger brother a candidate in the presidential election. Therefore, this victory is of Mahinda Rajapaksa.
