Former president Gotabaya Rajapaksa has announced the publication of his book titled “The conspiracy to oust me from the Presidency”.

The book will be available in both English and Sinhala languages at leading book stores from tomorrow (07), he said in a media statement.

The statement said,

Foreign intervention has weighed heavily on Sri Lanka since we won the war against the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam in 2009.

From the time I was elected President in November 2019, certain foreign and local parties were intent on removing me from power.

The entirety of my two and a half year tenure in power was spent combating the Covid-19 pandemic that swept through Sri Lanka and the whole world soon after I took office.

Conspiratorial forces commenced the political campaign to oust me from the presidency at the end of March 2022 after the pandemic had been brought under control and the vaccination campaign had been concluded and just when the economy was beginning to recover.

Today, foreign intervention and the manipulation of internal politics has become a fact of life in Sri Lanka in a manner never experienced in the first sixty years of independence of this country.

The political campaign to oust me brought in a new element into the politics of Sri Lanka which has since independence experienced only peaceful transfers of power following elections.

As such the events of 2022 are fraught with serious implications for the future of this country.

What this book explains is the first-hand experience of an internationally sponsored regime change operation.

As such I believe this book will be of interest not only to Sri Lankans but also to foreigners.
