The opposition is reportedly having serious doubts if President Ranil Wickremesinghe plans to dissolve parliament and go for snap general elections in agreement with SLPP founder Basil Rajapaksa.

The basis for their suspicion is that those close to the president Ranil Wickremesinghe are now campaigning separately to build their images.

Speaking to ‘The Leader’, a SJB MP said Rajapaksa began his campaign last week, while Ruwan Wijewardene, Akila Viraj Kariyawasam, Ravi Karunanayake and Sagala Ratnayaka have been carrying out their own image-building campaigns for the past few weeks.

It looks like a general election is going to be held first, said the MP.

A post by Ratnayaka from among social media posts by politicians on account of international mothers’ day has caught the attention of many.

"Perhaps it is the connection we form with her long before we see the light of this world, that makes the bond eternal.

A connection that never ends. The impression she makes on us lives through us, for an entire lifetime.

Although no single book can capture her in her entirety, The Mother by Pearl S Buck is a reading that gives us a chance to dive into her world.

The one we often miss, as we race against time to grow up, to climb mountains and to become the person we dream of becoming.

Through The Mother, Pearl presents us an opportunity to dive into a world of struggle, of resilience and determination.

It is a testimony to her will and undying courage, to fulfill her only dream - to see her children grow up to a better life.

The Mother is a reading into every mother's inner struggle.

Through The Mother, we get to read her again.

It is time to read her again.

Although we may never be able to appreciate her enough.

Happy Mother's Day!"
