Do not sacrifice Executive Presidency to please errant politicians and yellow robed political pandits.

“In the corporate environment the “Executive President” is the officer that exercises the majority of control over a company. It is his/her job to lead the company and guide it into a direction of profit and success. They work often with the COO and CFO of the cooperation to govern the company as a whole. At some companies this title is also referred to as CEO, Chief Executive Officer. If a said company has a Board of Directors the Executive President/CEO will often serve as Chairman of the Board.”

It is the same with an Executive President. During the past nine years It has been demonstrated in Sri Lanka that the Executive President is a positive power centre to fight enemies efficiently and keep at bay intruding enemies to thwart  progress and development of the country, and bring peace and security to the people.  Sri Lanka needed that environment. An Executive President proved extremely useful in the situation it was found in 2005 when Mr.Mahinda Rajapakse was elected to the high Office.

It was more important that the hands of an Executive President were not bound by checks and balances and kept free to exercise his executive powers for the protection of the country and the welfare of its people.  In that the removal of the 17th Amendment was useful and the  18th Amendment that replaced it was essential to allow the Executive President to move freely in the exercise of his office. 

Checks and balances do not help very much a President who wants to provide people with welfare measure as it is well seen in USA today.  The President Barrack Obama’s welfare projects have been nipped away by the Congress and the Senate.  Do we want same thing to happen here bringing back the 17 Amendment to limit the powers of the executive President ?

Sri Lanka had not seen any major development since its independence except for a few irrigation schemes,  and  settlements.  The democratic Westminster Parliamentary system with regular changes of government deterred Sri Lanka’s independent development outside the colonial frame.  It was the breakaway from that system to fall back on national values that helped development and progress. 

Executive powers of the President is very important,  as  one,  Sri Lanka despite its sovereignty is still interfered into by the West, and  two, an unfriendly Tamil Provincial Council in the North and the Muslims in the east are claiming separate regional administrations.

It is comprehensible that the lay politicians of the UNP, JVP, SLMC and TNA are all out to bring an end to Executive Presidency as they see in that the key to oust the President Mahinda Rajapakse,  and  make Sri Lanka a West friendly underdeveloped mendicant Nation State. But what is not comprehensible is what the Buddhists monks have to do with the abolition of  the Executive President.

The Buddhists Monks taking to politics is the worst thing that could have happened to Sri Lanka with a majority Buddhist population. While a generation of lay Buddhist youth sacrificed their lives to save this country  five times sanctified by the visit of the Great Buddha from its enemies, the political Buddhist Monks  are paving the path to allow    terrorism to raise its head  once again to divide this country.

The Buddhists monks,  the Chief Prelates- the Mahanayakas, Madolowawe Sobhita and Ratana  have no place in politics.  They do not understand the fundamentals of politics.  Their place is  in the villages and with the Buddhist people to bring back the fast eroding Buddhist values amoung the Sinhala Buddhist

To day the rate of suicide in Sri Lanka is in the increase, criminality makes  Buddhist Sri Lanka stink beyond its shores.  Mothers throws their children in to wells and sea or  give them poison to kill, fathers smash the little heads of their babies on  rocks, fathers, and grand fathers  rape their children and grand children, love affairs end in stabbing the beloved through jealousy and anger, drug addiction, and intoxication amoung the Sinhala Buddhists is on the increase. 

Is Sri Lanka a Buddhist Country ?  What is happening  to the Buddha Sasana ? 

Who is there to  protect the Buddha Sasana and  help the Buddhists to follow the eightfold path to meditation to attain Nibbana  or are they also to follow the political monks to remove the Executive President through which to find the purity of Buddha Sasana ?

Buddha said to his disciples- the yellow robed monks: Go forth for the good of the many, for the happiness of the many, out of compassion for the world, for the welfare, the good and the happiness of gods and men. Let no two of you go in the same direction. Teach the Dharma which is beautiful in the beginning, beautiful in the middle and beautiful at the end. Proclaim both the letter and the spirit of the holy life completely fulfilled and perfectly pure

The Buddha did not ask them to spread hatred and work to change governments and do politics.  These are pseudo monks a shame to Buddha Sasana.  They should be despised by the Sinhala Buddhists, as they are  abusing the role they are meant  to play as wearer of the robe of a Buddhist monk.

Under SWRD Bandaranayake any progressive development of the country was hampered by Chelvanayagam-Sundaralingam Tamil crowd that pushed back National development by seeking separation of the people on the question of language, raised purely for the sake of selfish political power for the upper class Jaffna Tamils.

Nothing has changed today after 30 years of untold suffering of the whole of the people of Sri Lanka under terrorism, the Tamil politicians have brought Sri Lanka back to square one.  Nine years of enormous  development to the country,  from south to north and west to east  have not changed the mean mental attitude of the Tamils who still seek separation despite the lessons learnt in several riots followed by  an inhumanly  ruthless terrorism.

The Tamil People in the North have been given every thing that they never possessed before , electricity, water, an efficient transport system including a fast and modern train service, education and health facilities, IT communication system, Banks , an Industrial zone, and above all the right to elect their own representatives to a Provincial Council.

Nevertheless the CM  C.V.Wigneswaran  a supposed to be educated man  of  an  above average intelligence and a retired Supreme Court Judge has turned out to be  a virulent Tamil racist all out to keep the Tamil people separated from the rest of the Communities.  This shows the inadequacy of University education in Sri Lanka, which turns out graduates who pass exams merely reading books and notes without developing the ability to think independently to understand meaningful human capacity to  bring people together, rather than aligning towards primitive separatism with a tribal mentality.

Wigneswaran is one of those lacking  the  ability to think independently and intelligently, there by falling into uneducated sentimentality seeking cheap popularity amoung petty crowds to receive  their applause.  It is proved in his  visit to TamilNadu, unable to make  an intellectually ennobling lecture  blew nauseating venom speaking about his  country where he was born and educated. 

In TamilNadu Wigneswaran  was a TamilNadu Tamil,  rather than a visiting Sri Lankan intellectual.  He forget that the honour of his being invited to India to give a lecture was the result of the elimination of terrorism by the Government and the Armed Forces of Sri Lanka, and bringing back  democracy  and “civilization” to North. 

This is what this bafoon Wigneswaran said in Tamil Nadu:  "State violence in Sri Lanka
 continues. Tamils, though the worst affected by far, are not the only ones... Other minorities such as Muslims and Christians have been targeted with a view to project a government that is representative only of Sinhala Buddhists and to portray new enemies and targets,". 

He then called India’s interference into Sri Lanka…"India has legal and moral obligations to ensure the welfare of Sri Lankan citizens. 

"It should do so by holding the Lankan government to its promises and to its obligations under international law. It should lend support to international processes that were in furtherance of justice and truth.  It should do so by ensuring that the right of self determination of the Tamil speaking peoples of Lanka is realised within a united Sri Lanka," Then recalling his earlier contentions that militarisation of North in Lanka took place to "maintain a stranglehold" over Tamils, he said despite cases pending before the apex court, "Army continues to destroy whatever is left of the buildings, homes, holy places or hallowed school premises inside the High Security Zone." 

I do not think even  today’s Modi’s India will take him seriously though the TamilNadu terrorist friendly bafoons may give him accolade.

It is in this situation that it would be better for Sri Lanka to have  instead of an Executive President a leftwing Dictator, to put traitors into prison and halt Western interference and  govern the country with strong fist.  That is how China was able keep away the west, and break through poverty and underdevelopment,  to be the economic giant that it is today.

UNP knows that Ranil Wickramasinghe would merely  be an “also ran”  against President Mahinda Rajapakse. Sajith Premadasa with his big talk hasn’t the back bone to hold even the post of a Deputy  Leader of the UNP let alone presenting himself for a Presidential election. .  When he was once offered  the post of Deputy Leader some time back he shied away proposing that it should be given to  Karu Jayasuriya. 

Karu Jayasuriya is eagerly awaiting his chance to be nominated as the Common Candidate, but  he will not be a unanimous choice of the UNP, and may therefore be conveniently overlooked.   They are now proposing Chandrika Kumaratunga knowing that she will not win but may  divide the Sinhala Buddhist votes  putting President Mahinda Rajapakse into a difficult situation.  Kumaratunga may not have the accepted support from the SLFP. 

Who would want to back a loosing horse ?

But this anti Executive President band, is so divided and  antagonist towards each other they will not stand a chance to defeat the President Mahinda Rajapakse at the Presidential election.

Executive Presidency should be retained at any cost as Sri Lanka is not out of the tunnel of danger with the Tamils still marking time for a Tamil Eelam, and the terrorist sleepers are awaiting  a chance to wake up.

What is wrong in an Executive President ?  An Executive President is not a Dictator, though  a left wing Dictator may be more appropriate in the present situation.

An Executive Prime Minister is bound by the Parliamentary procedures and his executive authority has to be approved by the Parliament.  That would be a great handicap when quick decisions have to be taken to avert any danger to the security of the country from inside or outside enemies.
