JVP Parliamentarian Anura Dissanayake says “The institutions they themselves wanted us to believe as ‘supreme’ are being demolished by Rajapaksa regime. They are being belittled and slandered. The impeachment process is not carried out for truth, justice or fair play. If you can read between the lines you would be able to see what the real intention is. This is the real nature of Rajapaksa. All institutions they want to be cowed down are being insulted, slandered, threatened and attacked,”
The JVP are following the tactics of the Western Governments, UN Officials, Human Rights Activists , the pro-terrorist Tamil Diaspora, and the TNA.
JVP wants to discredit the Government and see the fall of Rajapaksa Presidency. They of the JVP were the very people who helped the election of Mahinda Rajapaksa, but they were not satisfied playing the second fiddle to the President Mahinda Rajapakse. JVP wants to be the Maestro. But ever since they left the UPFA their popularity among the masses has fallen to zero.
The people wanted to pardon them for their massacres during the period leading to their uprising in 1971 and there after. The JVP was then feared by the people to such an extent they would not even pronounce their name loud . JVP spies were every where nobody knew where. The people were living with fear of death in the most savage form. They were even frightened of the shadows by the road sides. JVP insurrection failed it is said because they did not have the backing of the masses, it was a proletarian revolution. What ever it had been JVP still hasn’t the support of the masses for even a successful election victory, let alone a revolution.
In 1982 Rohana Wijeweera the leader of the JVP contested the Presidential elections, but got far lees votes than he expected. In the meantime they incessantly killed innumerable number of people who were opposed to their “Doctrine”. Now the vociferous JVP Leadership led by Somawansa Amarasinghe, Anura Dissanayake, Tilvin Silva , Lal Kantha and the rest have their annual memorial rallies for their dead leader, but up to now JVP have not demanded the pardon of the people for their most savage assassinations that will remain the blood mark of JVP. I myself had a cousin who was taken away from his home, had his head cut off stuck on a pole and displayed in front of his house. There were stories of how flesh of their killed enemies were sent to their homes telling that it was sent by the “victim” who will come later for “dinner”………!!!
After the death or assassination (which is still a mystery) of their leader the JVP still hopes for a successful proletarian revolution like the TNA and the terrorist rump abroad are hoping to set up a Tamil Eelam. It is that which keeps JVP from joining hands with the President Mahinda Rajapakse but keeps on discrediting him and his government hoping that will pave the way for an eventual JVP Government. The JVP is working for it unreservedly criticising every action of the President and his government, increasing trade union activities organised by Lal Kantha with strikes and manifestation, roping in the University Students –the IUSF and the FUTA.
They still go by Marxist theories propounded by their leader Rohana Wijeweera : “We Marxists are proletarian revolutionaries. We do not conceal this fact from anyone. We hope for a complete revolutionary change of the existing social system and act with that goal in view. Ours is not the role of sitting on the fence with folded arms waiting for the day when this capitalist system is taken for burial on the shoulders of others; this capitalist system has bequeathed suffering and oppression to the working class of this country, which is over three million strong. It has made poverty and want the sole inheritance of the middle and lower peasants who comprise more than half the population of this country, it has become the fount and source of each and every contemporary social problem that the bulk of the nation suffers. The socialist revolution in a country can be hastened or delayed depending on the degree to which objective conditions are ripe and subjective conditions, i.e. consciousness, organization and leadership, have developed.”
They want poverty to continue to exist for the success of their hopeful revolution , and Anura Dissanayaka perhaps sees end of poverty in the Divineguma Bill and wants to precipitate their “revolution”, as end of poverty will eliminate their Marxist revolutionary hope. His critical stance on the Impeachment of the CJ is to bring about JVP’s desired foreign intervention against the Impeachment and thus against the Government of the President Rajapakse. Otherwise with their own representative Vijitha Herath nominated to the PSC, there is no need for Anura Dissanayake to make a statement at a Media Meeting held at the JVP Office in Pelwatte on the Impeachment.
The UN human rights expert ( in the UN System every one is an expert) Gabriela Knaul has stated “ The irremovability of judges is one of the main pillars of guaranteeing the independence of the judiciary.” We do not know where she got it from, but that is apparently what she had said.
Then in UK Commons Foreign Affairs Committee demands David Cameron the Prime Minister to boycott the Commonwealth Summit to be held in Sri Lanka next year due to continuing evidence of serious human rights abuses in Sri Lanka.
And in Australia Gordon Weiss has opened his mouth as is his habit to compare which is incomparable saying: “There is little doubt that in 2009 the government of Sri Lanka pulled off one of the nastiest episodes of mass killing since the Rwandan genocide - and got away with it. Tens of thousands of civilians were massacred, with barely a trickle of Syria-like imagery emerging from the battle zone.” (what has Rwanda Genocide and Syria-like imagery emerging from the battle zone, got to do with Sri Lanka).
These three news items may have titillated the unpatriotic minds of the politically bankrupt JVP parliamentarians to renew their attack on the President Rajapaksa and his government.
JVP is not alone in the idea of binding hands and legs of Sri Lanka and sell it off to the foreign champions of “regime change” to do what they like with it and when finished with hand it back to them. Ranil Wickramasinghe and the UNP are also participating in the deal.
UNP also has still not asked the pardon of the people of Sri Lanka for the killing spree with torture chambers where thousands of Sinhala Buddhist youth were killed and tortured by the UNP under President Premadasa in the attempt to put an end to the savagery of the JVP. Sajith Premadasa-the Vice President of UNP has a duty by the people to say sorry for his father‘s part in those killings, for arming the terrorists, and for what ever hand he had in the assassination of the late Lieutenant General Denzil Kobbekaduwa.
But they JVP and the UNP are today the champions of democracy , human rights and good governance.
It is reported that the leader of the UNP Ranil Wickremesinghe has asked the government to clearly state its stance on the 13th Amendment……..and whether the Government was rejecting the May 26, 2009 joint statement with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and the May 17, 2011 joint statement with the Indian Government where the Sri Lankan Government underlines its commitment to the implementation of the 13th Amendment. Mr. Wickremesinghe has added that a different tone was being heard today despite the assurances given to the United Nations and to India that power devolution under the 13th Amendment would be systematized and strengthened.”
What is Ranil Wickramasinghe fishing for in the troubled waters of Sri Lanka when it needs the unity of every one to face the attacks coming from the West to subjugate and bar the development and progress of our country after the elimination of the terrorists, for which none of these Western Countries came forward to help.
Democratic process has been set up for the impeachment of the Chief Justice of Sri Lanka. It is purely an internal problem which the country has to proceed with according to its Constitution. It is neither the business of the UN nor of any other foreign country.
