Sri Lanka Latest News: Mr. Basil Rajapaksa, previously residing in Los Angeles, USA for over two months, plans to return to Sri Lanka in the initial week of March, surprising many with his early arrival. His decision to expedite his return stems from a strategic move to reorganize and fortify the Pohottuwa party, gearing it towards the upcoming presidential election.

Initially expected to prolong his stay in America until April, Mr Rajapaksa has altered his plans, demonstrating his keen attention to the evolving political landscape of the nation. His imminent return has sparked speculation and discussions, especially in light of Mr Udayanga Weeratunga’s recent Facebook post. Weeratunga, a relative of the Rajapaksa family, hinted at Mr Rajapaksa’s relentless efforts, remarking, “Basil is working non-stop like a clock running twenty-four hours to make Ranil the king again, not to win Pohottuwa.”

Recognized as the architect behind the Podujana Peramuna, Mr Basil Rajapaksa’s return signals a significant development as Sri Lanka braces itself for the upcoming general election post-Sinhalese New Year’s Eve. His return is anticipated to catalyze political activities and shape the course of the impending elections, underscoring the heightened anticipation surrounding his strategic manoeuvres.
