Let us see.
SWRD left UNP to form a politically socialist SLFP -different from the Western Capitalist UNP.
Sirisena left the socialist SLFP to join politically different Western Capitalist UNP. Can we draw a political parallel to Srisena and SWRD? No, they are poles apart aren’t they ?
SWRD left a Capitalist political System to form a Socialist political system.
Sirisena left a Socialist political System to join a Western Capitalist political System.
Can Sirisena claim a political similarity to SWRD ? No he cannot .
SWRD formed the SLFP and joined with the MEP,LSSP and the Communist Pa rty.
Sirisena left the Socialist SLFP to join with the Western Capitalist UNP, half-baked Marxist JVP, Tamil Natiuonalist TNA and Nationalist Hela Urumaya, against Socialist left wing MEP,LSSP,CP,NFF, Pivithuru Hela Urumaya.
Is there any political Similarity between Sirisena and SWRD ? Definitely No .
On the 8 January, President Mahinda Rajapakse who was also the President of SWRD’s SLFP was defeated by Sirisena at the Presidential election. On the 16 January, 2015 the President of SLFP Mahinda Rajapakse handed over the Presidency of the SLFP to the new President Maithripala Sirisena.
By that action can Sirisena, who on his own accord left the SLFP to join the Western Capitalist UNP and its right wing politicians, be cleansed of his sin of leaving the SLFP to make of him a legitimate leader of SWRD’s SLFP ? No he cannot be cleansed of the sin of leaving SLFP.
Sirisena’s legal right to be the President of SLFP has not been legally challenged , but what is evident is Sirisena has no Moral right to be the leader of the SLFP.
Now there are two SLFPs one led by President Sirisena and the other SLFP forming a political front with Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna claiming Mahinda Rajapakse as its leader
Can there be two SLFPs one lead by Maithripala Sirisena, and another claiming the leadership of Mahinda Rajapakse ? No there cannot be two SLFPs.
One of SLFP has to be the one that is closest to SWRD’s political philosophy not both.
The SLFP of Maithripala Sirisena is with UNP , and its Allies JVP, TNA, JHU accepting to work with a capitalist political system, distancing itself from the Socialist left wing politics in association with MEP,LSSP,CP, NFF and PHU. This is exactly what SWRD did not want his SLFP to be.
The other SLFP the members of which are with the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna which claims the leadership of Mahinda Rajapakse, which has refused any cohabitation with the UNP and seeks allegiance with Socialist Left wing politicians , which is what SWRD wanted when he left the Western Capitalist political system of the UNP.
Hence the SLFP with President Maithripala Sirisena is fake, it is NOT what SWRD wanted his SLFP to be.
Therefore the real SLFP containing the political philosophy of SWRD is with the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna.
It is therefore clear that what President Mahinda Rajapakse handed over to President Maithripala Sirisena on the 16 January,2015 was only the name of SWRD’s political party, but not what it contained –the SWRD’s political philosophy. The ownership of SWRD’s political philosophy is still with Mahinda Rajapakse.
However the Sinhala Buddhists should not listen to English Educated Colombians or Sinhala diaspora who may say vote for Pohottuva if Mahinda Rajapakse accepts to remove the
13 A from the Constitution etc
because Mahinda Rajapakse knows what he has to do.
When Mahinda Rajapakse was elected President in 2005 he knew what exactly he was going to do, and none of the English Educated Colombians and the Sinhala Diaspora had to tell him what he had to do.
Though the Western Capitalist UNP started calling him corrupt and that he was a thief, the cry that was taken up by the JVP, were all lies to slander and damage the reputation of an honest man to prepare the way for them to come to political power to plunder the State Coffers, and destroy Sri Lanka developed by Mahinda Rajapakse in a short time after eliminating terrorism.
Mahinda Rajapakse knows what he has to do as he is a man who learns from his experience.
Therefore it would be wise for the Sinhala Buddhists not to be divided and VOTE at the coming Provincial Council Election for the POHOTTUWA of Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna which has the Political System as it had been planned and set up by SWRD Bandaranayake.
