President Maitripala Sirisena who contravened the Constitution of Sri Lanka thrice confiscated his right for honour and respect of the people.

Maitriplala Sirisena’s first act,  as the President was swearing in a Prime Minister overlooking the Prime Minister D.M.Jayaratne already in place, which is  in breach of the  Constitution of Sri Lanka,  undemocratic and inconsistent with his office as the President elected by the people,  therefore  ultra vires .
It is not  whether Maitripala Sirisena honours his pre election agreements  with Ranil Wickramasinghe, Chandrika Kumaratunge, Madoluwave Sobhita, JHU,TNA and SLMC, that counts when he is elected the President of Sri Lanka,  but whether he accepts to uphold the Constitution of Sri Lanka , honour it and respect it, and acknowledge his loyalty to the people at large which  is sine qua non, and above keeping his pre-election agreements which would in any way affect his office as the President of Sri Lanka and service to the people. 
With his swearing in as the President of Sri Lanka all personal  agreements he had entered into previously vis à vis his election as the President, become null and void. More so,  as the peoples’ vote to  elect him to that high office is with the condition that his  personal agreements do not  in any way affect his   loyalty and the service  to the people, and   in breach of the Constitution of Sri Lanka under which he was sworn in.
Ranil Wickramasinghe who he appointed  as the Prime Minister  in contravention of the Constitution of Sri Lanka, is an usurper of the rightful place of the Prime Minister D.M.Jayaratne. Therefore  Ranil Wickramasinghe’s appointment as the Pfrime Minister is illegal,  Hence,  the Ministers appointed by the usurper Ranil Wickramasinghe  are holding those Ministerial positions illegally, therefore  ultra  vires.
These Ministers of the Illegal government of an usurper Prime Minster have  instead of performing Ministerial services to the people , are going  out side their duties as Ministers to accuse the previous government for bribery and corruption., and doing their best to accuse the former President and his close collaborators  for  imagined and baseless allegations with a view to take them to court and take away their civic rights or allow the international community to accuse them for war crimes.
They are breaking up families with the most cruel, arrogant  and unsavoury members of the JVP such as Anura Kumara Dissanayake, and Vijitha Herath, and of the JHU Champika Ranawaka and Nishantha Sri Wanasinghe   employed as President Maithripala Sirisena’s  crime investigators.
All these activities are illegal and the President allowing such actions to be carried out by this government which has no legal standing , is aiding and abetting grievous errors to be committed against people respect by the people of the country by false accusations, personal defamations on unsubstantiated  hearsay evidence., and character assassination which the worst of  crime as it is done to bring down a popular  political personality  from the  estimation of the people and make him unpopular.
The people of Sri Lanka on the 8th January, 2015 voted  to elect a President and not elect Ranil Wickramasinghe as the Prime Minister or have a  UNP government in place of the government of the UPFA which had a majority in the Parliament.  Above all, the people did not elect a new President to accuse the former for bribery and corruption, and all Crimes imagined possible to have been committed.
The President may visit India, China or USA and received with great  honour, but what is more important is that the President is honoured and respected in his own country and by his own people, which  however  is not  so evident. 
The 58 per cent of the Sinhala Buddhists are being neglected and the people of the country, except those Tamils in the North and the Muslims in the  East, did not expect a government under Ranil Wickramasinghe  which is vindictive, arrogant, and revengeful toward the former President Mahinda Rajapakse very much loved and respected by the majority of the Sinhala Buddhist  and perhaps by a handful of Tamils. 
The majority of the  people detest the racist Muslim Assad Sally  and the Tamils of the TNA.  The Sinhala Buddhists  dislike Chandrika Kumaratunga , Champika Ranawaka, Madoluwawe Sobita and Athureliye Ratana, and the JVP band of  investigators of corruption for Ranil’s pseudo government.
The people of Sri Lanka except the Tamils and Muslims when they voted to elect Maitripala Sirisena for a change did not expect to have along with Maithripala Sirisena a set of uncouth  vindictive pseudo Ministers making allegations against their beloved  President Mahinda Rajapakse who lost  by less than 4 lakhs of votes. 
On the 8 the January the people did not vote to elect Maitripala Sirisena to have a pseudo Prime Minister with pseudo Ministers  doing what the people do not want them to do.  They can do what they are doing now when they win an election and form a UNP Government ,and not now when there is already a UPFA government, and the Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe and his pseudo Ministers  are  a Constitutional nonentity..
The Pseudo Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera  has taken the Centre stage and what he is doing is perhaps kept a secret even from the President Maitripala Sirisena. Mangala is a sworn enemy of  the former President Mahinda Rajapakse and every thing he does may be detrimental  to the wishes of the people, covertly aiming to eliminate  Mahinda Rajapakse from Sri Lankan political scene, making the stage clear for UNP to settle down permanently in power. 
Of course USA with its most unholy, undemocratic government in the World today, which will never help a developing country to progress  independently towards development and prosperity, has seen  with obvious satisfaction the regime change in Sri Lanka for which they  may have secretly contributed.
USA will therefore  accede to the demands made by the Yahapalanaya Government of Maitripala Sirisena through Mangala Samaraweera, with the ulterior motive of taking revenge from President Mahinda Rajapakse who did not bow his head to the USA and the West. 
The former USA Secretary of State Hillary Clinton breaking diplomatic etiquettes visited the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu Jayalalitha ( who was in jail for corrfuption), but never came to Sri Lanka. The terrorist friendly American Ambassador for Sri Lanka Robert O’Black may have discouraged such a visit to Sri Lanka.  Now the path is clear and the USA State Secretary John Kerry finds Sri Lanka more civilized with a west friendly puppet government  in place, and has therefore agreed to visit Sri Lanka.
In the meantime Ranil Wickramasinghe insults China delaying taking decisions on Chinese projects, re-examining, and  re-evaluating them.  Sri Lanka has already been accepted into the USA-West orbit.
Ravi Karunanayake -the Finance Minister’s much touted Yahapalanaya Budget did not give the expected relief for the people, and many commodities on which prices have been slashed are those utilised more by the Tamils. The price of rice is on the increase. The promised salary increases have not been received by the public servants and the private sector has been overlooked.
Ravi Karunanayake, who has forgotten his past Cooperative Wholesale  episodes is now more keen on  character assassination, defamation and making continuous false accusations against former Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajappakse.  It was reported that,  “ ….Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake said that former Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa cannot be given equal treatment during CID interrogation because he is now an ordinary citizen and not a VIP anymore.Therefore, he was nonplussed to see the CID visiting Gotabhaya Rajapaksa's residence to question him,……”
What can you expect  from  this Christgian Tamil  Ravi Karunanayake who during the military offensive against the LTTE terrorists ridiculed the Sri Lanka Armed Forces ? 
He little knows that Gotabhaya Rajapakse will always remain a VIP in the hearts of the patriots of  Sri Lanka, while they will be hated for generations to come for what they are doing as just 100 day pseudo Ministers..

In the mean time it has been reported that , “…….the  Sri Lanka's Supreme Court taking up a fundamental rights petition filed against the former President Mahinda Rajapaksa has issued notice on him to appear in court on March 31.

A three-judge bench comprising Chief Justice K Sripavan and Justices Priyasath Dep and Eva Wanasundera issued the order after having considered a fundamental rights petition filed by Duminda Nagamuwa, the candidate nominated by the Frontline Socialist Party (FSP) for the January 8, 2015 presidential election…..”

This is how  the Maithripala Sirisena’s Yayapalana is now attempting to vilify, defame, and heap allegations against a much loved former President Mahinda Rajapakse. It is like a dog barking at the moon.

Is this what the voters expected of Maithripala Sirisena when they cast their votes to elect him as the President of Sri Lanka ? 

It may have been the intension of the Tamils and Muslims  who voted for him but there was a 58 percent Sinhala Buddhist voters  who did not vote for him and they vehemently oppose all attempts  at making false allegations, mudslinging and  character assassination of the former President Mahinda Rajapakse  who has not fallen from the respect, esteem and affection they have for him.
I have been told that many begin to say that they will not vote for the SLFP if they do not take  the former President Mahinda Rajapakse as their Prime Minister candidate.

All actions taken so far by the illegal government of Ranil Wickramasinghe, elected the Prime Minister in breach of the Constitution of Sri Lanka are illegal.  Therefore it is time the  President Maitripala Sirisena takes stock of the situation and demand his Prime Minister  to stop all actions that are being taken against the previous government and go ahead with some constructive work beneficial to the country and the people..

The President Maitripala Sirisena had contravened the Constitution of Sri Lanka in taking legislative powers into his own hand and re appointing an already impeached Chief Justice, and declaring the  appointment of Chief Justice Mohan Pieris null and void, and appointing  a new Chief Justice.

The President Maitripala Sirisena  following the instructions of Ranil Wickramasinghe, Chandrika Kumaratunga, Champika Ranawaka  has given into the TNA removing check points, allowing any one to enter into the North, giving 1000 acres of land around Palali Airport for the settlement of Tamils, appointed a civilian governor  and promised reduction of armed forces. He has still not made a statement on Chief Minister Wigneswaran’s resolution on genocide.

President Maitripala Sirisena has also favoured the Tamils respecting his pre-election agreement with the TNA.  He has appointed a Tamil a citizen of Singapore as the Governor of the Central Bank, He  has appointed a Tamil as the Chief Justice (second CJ as CJ Mohan Pieris has still not been  removed in terms of the Constitution),  He also took his presidential oath before a Tamil Jude of the Supreme court. 

Was all that to spite the 58 per cent Sinhala Buddhists who did not vote for him, thus sealing his affiliation to Tamils ?

President Maithripala Sirisena can put things right if he were to meet the former President and invite him to accept to be the Prime Minister Candidate of the SLFP.  He would thus be able to do a magnificent job of work as the President of Sri Lanka with Mahinda Rajapakse as the Prime Minister and Gotabhaya Rajapakse as the Defence Secretary and go down history for his services to the country and the people..

A heart to heart talk with President Maitripala Sirisena,

You have said you do not like honorific  references and would  like to be called the President.

Well I being much older to you, and taking advantage of your preference for non honorific address I have taken the privilege to  address you as Maitripala  without any disrespect to you.

You may be a good man but I personally do not like the way you jumped the queue to obey the call of a set of failed politicians  to sacrifice forty seven years of  your dedicated attachment to Sri Lanka Freedom Party, to become their common Presidential candidate.  Of course it would have been a very tempting proposition, but  good people make greater sacrifices  to  keep their principles. 

Even from a Buddhist point of view what you did is not acceptable.  However, now you are the President I congratulate you, even though your victory is a victory gained by the votes of Tamils and Muslims. I have nothing against it, but unfortunately their votes come with conditions like those of American and IMF Aid.  That means Maitripala  with the trio Ranil, Chandrika, Champika  and the NAC you are not a free man-a  President free to do what you think is best for the country.  You are a prisoner of the agreements you have signed and what those Tamils and Muslims who with their conditional votes expect of you.

You know Maithripala, Mahinda was a visionary leader.  He is a born patriot.  He was not ambitious for himself but he was ambitious for the country.  He knew which way to lead the country.  The USA and the West Maitripala  are not our friends.  They are our friends to the extent to which we are ready to extend  them the  rights  over our strategic position in the Indian Ocean.

But the West will never be friend to the extent  to come to our help when we are in need of them if that would compromise their  relationship with other countries. It happened in 1978 when India trespassed into our airspace to drop dry rations to terrorists under siege by the Sri Lanka Armed Forces.  America did not intervene and  the result was the 13 the Amendment to our constitution and the occupation of the north by the Indian Peace Keeping Forces. 

Therefore do not have illusions about the USA and the West.  Ranil will mislead you to believe that we should depend on the USA and the West rather than China and Russia. Ranil is looking at the problem from the UNP s’capitalist point of view, which you have been opposed to for the last 47 years as a member of the SLFP.

Maitripala you said when taking over the leadership of the SLFP, that you also owe a gratitude for the UNP for having made you win at the Presidential election.  You are  now the  President and as such you haven’t got to show gratitude to UNP .  It is the UNP that will have to show their gratitude to you.

Because UNP was a party in disarray without any hope of an election victory, rejected 29 times by the people, and today due to your  foolishness they have formed a government with the only objective of bringing allegations of corruption against Mahinda , his family and  persons closely or distantly connected to him, so that the most popular political leader who was a stumbling block  against their wining at an election  one day to form a government of their own.  

Foolishness I said because Ranil, Chandrika  and Champika  made of you a pawn to have their own way praising you and paying you excessive respect trying to make of you a gullible fool

Champika wrote your election manifesto, in that manifesto how much of  it is your own political philosophy.  Why did you allow Ranil to take Mangala Samaraweera in to his cabinet ?   He is a man with so much of hatred towards  Mahinda.  He will do everything opposed to what Mahinda the great visionary leader did to bring Sri Lanka forward in a formidable path of progress. You who had  through out your political life opposed the UNP, are today  doing only what they want you to do.

Maitripala, you know you did wrong  entering into a secret pact with Chandrika, Ranil , Rajitha and Champika  behind the back of the SLFP and its leader Mahinda.  But you are making that worse by conniving with the UNP to force allegations against Mahainda , his brother and family.   You should at least now try to be a good president not vindictive but honest , compassionate and righteous.  But your recent  pronouncements make you a distasteful person, and the people who voted for you- that is those Sinhala Buddhists are already getting disillusioned.

If you allow Ranil and his UNP Ministers have their way , Sri Lanka will plunge into unretrievable chaos.  Already you see signs of it.  Please open your eyes Maitripala and see for your self what the TNA is doing in the North. See the Muslim Ministers who are already starting Muslim settlements.  Have a good look at  the budget presented by Ravi Karunanayake .  It is a farce  to make people lull into a sense of satisfaction while Sri Lanka is slowly turning  away from its real friends, from progress to regression falling into the hands of  reactionary forces.

From the beginning you made mistakes blindly following  the plan presented to you by Chandrika, Ranil, and Champika.  The first error was your  announcement that you were going to make Ranil the Prime Minister.  That was against the Constitution.  Further more when you were elected on the 9th January, there was already  a Prime Minister, Prime Minister D.M.Jayaratne and his Cabinet of Ministers.

If you did not want to work with the Prime Minister D.M.jayaratne and his Cabinet the best thing you could have done respecting the Constitution  was to dissolve the Parliament and call for general elections.  Instead the trio from the hades_ Ranil, Chandrika and Champika presented you with a 100 day programme.  You blindly accepted without asking a question and did every thing against the Constitution, and against democracy.

Have you reflected  on what you had been doing since 9th January,2015 ? 

You are not with friends Maitripala .  They will be friends to day; but  you will not know what they will be tomorrow.  Mangala Samaraweera was a one time friend of Mahinda  and so was Champika but they are his sworn enemies today.  Maitripala to what extent can you count on them.

Nimal Siripala de Silava believes that he will be the Prime Minister after the April elections, but I am sure there is already a plan to make Ranil the Prime Minister even if the UNP is defeated at the election.  Ranil is already saying that he wants the whole Parliament to be his government. 

You too speak of a national government after the election.  All that is according to a plan and if  the SLFP were to win with a majority, in the National Government you propose you will appoint Ranil as the Prime Minister.  You have already breached the Constitution twice and taken undemocratic decision. First to appoint Ranil as the Prime Mi,nister when there is already Prime Minister D.M.Jayaratne in place, and secondly when you re-instated the impeached Chief Justice, and sacked the Chief Justice Mohan Pieris. 

In reality Maitripala we have  two Prime Ministers –Ranil who does not exist as a Prime Minister in terms of the Constitution and appointed undemocratically as such by you, and  the other  who exists under the Constitution and appointed democratically. It is the same with the Chief Justice one who has not been impeached and still remains the Chief Justice, and the  other appointed by you.

What a mess Maitripala ?  When are you going to take stock of the situation and speak up and say no to Ranil, Chandrika and Champika and disband the unconstitutional NAC ?

You have to do that before things get worse..  Now that you have been accepted back into the fold of the SLFP you should form a SLFP Government, and follow Mahinda Chintanaya. It is the best way out for Sri Lanka. You should appoint Mahinda as your Prime Minister.  I am sure Mahinda  did not humiliate you in the Presence of the representatives of the CTC.  Mahinda always had a plan behind what ever he did and I am sure he was not  humiliating you as you pretended he did.

Mahinda saw through the hypocrisy of USA and the West and was able to stand up to them and say no when necessary.  Mitripala we had been subjugated by the Westas an ancient colony.  We had to struggle to free ourselves from the subjugation of the West.   They were never our friends.   Our friends are the Nations of Asia, Middle East and AfricaChina is one of our great friends , so are JapanRussia, Vietnam, and Burma etc., Therefore Maitripala we have to remain in our Asian  orbit. USA thinks it can always dictate terms to us despite the fact that USA remains the country responsible for more war crimes and violation of human rights of other nations.  Therefore, we have to keep our distance from them without breaking away completely from them.

India cannot be counted as our best friend despite her being our next door neighbour.  India has her own agenda .  We should not let India  interfere into our internal affairs.  Implementing or discarding the 13 Amendment is our business and we should not allow India to have a say in it.

Maitripala, please ask yourself why all these people Chandeika, Ranil and Champika want you to give up  executive powers you have.  You should make a reappraisal of the situation and judge for yourself whether its advisable that you give up your executive powers as long as the problems with the Tamils have not been solved.

Once you have given up your executive powers, they- Ranil, Chandrika, Champika and the NAC will be the masters.  On top of that if they pass the 19 Amendment, they can even bring a motion of no confidence against you and remove you with a two third majority vote.  What a pathetic situation that would be ?  They are quite capable of doing that as they are taking orders from USA and the West.

Maitripala, have you asked yourself why Mangala went to USA and met  the Secretary of State and other Officials and then met Ban ki Moon of the UN to request that the Special report on War crimes in Sri Lanka should not be presented on the 25th March this year as scheduled but later in August ?  Do they tell you every thing or do they do things behind your back keeping you ignorant of what is going on behind the scene. ?  Do not forget that it is UNP against the SLFP in the new set up.
Maitripala,  some thing that is evident under yahapalanaya you have  initiated  has benefited the Tamils; even the Budget of the UNP Minister  is a budget to make life easier for the Tamils.  The Tamils in the North have been given mores facilities and every body can now go to the North.  Even Mcrae of the UKChannel 4is in North of Sri Lanka.  Former terrorists who escaped to Europe can now come  and even organise  former terrorist groups.  Omanthai check point has been removed. Chief  Minister has moved a resolution calling for investigation of genocide against Tamils since independence.  Muslims are also organising themselves  soon they may claim the East of Sri Lanka for themselves.

Christian Ministers of  Ranil are raiding even Buddhist Meditation Centres. Sinhala Buddhists are being discriminated   and their concerns come after those of Tamils and Muslims.  Maitripala you are a Sinhala Buddhist, don’t you think that you should pay more attention to them-the Sinhala Buddhists ? 

Your friend Champika is trying to split Buddhists vote they say by JHU contesting at the coming elections on its own.

Sajith Premadasa was speaking about a marriage between you and Ranil, he said,  Premier Ranil Wickremesinghe’s UNP and President Maithripala Sirisena’s SLFP had entered into an unbreakable marriage. "We have no intention of divorcing." Of course Maitripala the UNP would not like a divorce , because this is the only chance  they have to be in a government as Ministers.

They do not see or pretend to see that the Ranil Wickramasinghe’s government is illegal  not being Constitutional.  Ranil does not command the confidence of the majority in  the Parliament.  The legal,  therefore the Constitutional Government is that of the SLFP  Prime Minister D.M.Jayaratne.  If they decide to go to courts and if the judges are not influenced by you and Ranil, the Courts may declare Ranil’s premiership and his cabinet of Ministers are null and void.

You see Maitripala the situation is precarious, with your talk about a unitary government and Ranil’s declared wish that he wants the whole Parliament to be a one whole government.  There is the intention for him to continue to be the Prime Minister of this united government without an opposition. And Nimal Siripala de Silva too  hopes to be the Prime Minister  after the April elections. It will be a great disappointment for him if Ranil continues to be the Prime Minister.  
Nimal Siripala has so much of hope of being elected by you as the Prime Minister  after the April elections if the SLFP wins,  to the extent that  he seems to oppose the idea of some political parties of the UPFA proposing to bring in Mahinda as the next Prime Minister.

I wander what you really think of that latter situation.

Maitripala I did not like what you said in Polonnaruw about what would have happened to you if you had lost at the election.  You said you would have ended up in a grave somewhere, and they had plans for your children as well. That was really mean of you to have said that.  Because you know having been with Mahinda for such a long time that he is not a vindictive person,  as much as he is not corrupt.  Ravi Karunanayake and Mangala Samaraweera are making it their lives ambition to prove that Mahinda is corrupt , but they have failed to do so so far, and they will not succeed because Mahinda is not corrupt, as much as Gotabhaya.

I think I will end this conversation for now.  I have told you some home truths and it is for you to think over all that and change your attitude towards Mahinda. It is a quality of a good leader to know his friends.  You may think that you owe them  gratitude , but for them you were the means to have got what they would have never got in  an election.

Maitripala you may have heard about that story about the snake which wanted to meditate.  He went to a meditation teacher and asked him how to meditate.  The teacher said go to a quiet place where you will not be disturbed and lie quietly.  The snake did like wise.  In the meantime there was a woman collecting  firewood  around  the place where the snake had decided to stretch himself and meditate. 

The woman after having collected firewood was looking for some thing with which to tie the bundle of firewood.  Looking around she saw what she thought was a long bark, and picking it up she tied the bundle of firewood and took it home .Having arrived at home she untied the bark and threw it away and took the firewood inside.  The bark with which the woman had tied the bundle of firewood was unfortunately the meditating snake. The poor snake was bruised and twisted and in great pain.  He dragged himself painfully to see the  meditation teacher.  When the teacher heard the story he was very sorry and told the Snake that he should have raised his head and shooed to show that he was a snake.

Therefore Maitripala with all this talk about removing the executive powers of the President and proposals by the JVP; JHU , UNP to curtail  your executive powers, it is time you raise your head and show of what metal you are made, and keep your executive powers by all means and take the reins of governance into your own hands. 

It is enough with the witch hunt?  Get your Ministers to stop talking  and stop the ignoble hunt for instances of corruption  and start to do some beneficial work and stop terrorism from raising its head again, and above all stop the TNA and the Tamil Politicians of the north  begin their dastardly work  of separatism.

Good luck Maitripala,

theruwan saranai as Mahinda would have said.

Witch-hunt is not yet over as UNP has to eliminate rivals and take away their Civic Rights before the next election.

The Stage has been set to culminate in a grand finale,  the false allegations of corruption, criminal intentions, an election night plan for a military take over and stealing gold from  the reserves in the Treasury and so on and so forth. 
The 100 day UNP Government has begun by taking over to their side  the law and Justice, by appointing their own Chief Justice, appointing their own Director General of the Commission of Bribery and Corruption Wasanthi Manchanayake, taking over  the police , taking over  the BASL on to their side by making its President Upul Jauyasuriya the Chairman of the Investment  Committee, and taking over the academicians with the Professor  Dewasiri of FUTA the spokes person  for the National Movement for Social Justice at the helm.
So what stops them from doing  what they want to do? 
There is more to come to net the rogues, thieves, criminals and the rest of the miscreants of the previous government.
The man hunt is on.
To make it more convenient the President Maitripala Sirisena exasperated that despite all the accusations and allegation no one has so far been arrested has threatened to appoint a Special  Presidential Committee of Investigation
The objectives are very clear. The UNP, JHU and JVP have to clip the wings of their rivals so that the field would be clear for them to vanquish the opposition to take over  political power.
The UNP is at a disadvantage as the President  has taken over the leadership of the SLFP and left UNP to go to election on its own with Ranil WIckramasinghe as the leader  which would be a sure defeat-the 30th at an election.
The former President Mahinda Rajapakse is still alive and kicking, more than ever before in the minds of the Sinhala Buddhists . That puts UNP at a greater disadvantage . Hence the UNP has to do some thing dramatic to  win the elections. 
What  a great chance UNP would have in  winning   the general elections if it removes Mahinda Rajapakse from being present  any where near the political field during elections simply  by removing his political rights ?. 
UNP has failed 29 times to gaine a single election victory.  JHU on its own will get a few seats.  Even that is doubtful .  One wondes  whether even Champika would be able to  keep his seat  as the trio  Champika,Nishantha and Ven.Omalpe have become too aggressive for the liking of the ordinary man.  JHU will not be a decision maker in an election, and JVP is a party that would be left out by the majority of the people, as JVP under Anura Kumara Dissanayake reminds the people more  of the period of  JVP terror. 
Both JHU with Champika and JVP with Anura Kumara Dissanayake  are already disliked by the people from  conversations that are beginning to be heard now.
Ravi Karunanayake has failed to come  even near to receive the approbation of the   people in the villages,  and  in urban areas outside Colombo.  Even in Colombo there are those who begin to get tired to hear of this constant witch hunt to inculpate the former President , his former cabinet Ministers and his Defence Secretary and people connected to him. Because the masses still love the Rajapakses, and regret their unexpected departure from the political scene.
The President Maitripala Sirisena and Ranil Wickramasinghe have put a thief to catch a thief as the saying goes and are sure that Ravi Karunanayake will come up with a credible accusation against the former President Mahunda Rajapakse, and Gotabhaya Rajapakse.
It is a psychologic  reaction which   UNP has failed to understand that  they of the UNP will be hated when they over do accusing of a person who the people have accepted as their national hero to whom they owe a gratitude  for having delivered them from the greatest menace of terrorism under which they lived in constant fear of  death to themselves or to others  close to them.
I have heard a three wheeler who had been a soldier  who fought under Sarath Fonseka say that it is a mistake, not to have elected President Mahinda Rajapakse. He asked with vehemence can you hide from the people the great work he has accomplished, and  all his achievements  which will remain for ever monuments to prove what a colossus that man had been even if  this 100 day government heaps on him all the corruptions, malpractices or corruptions. 
He said that Sarath Fonseka as the Commander was very good .  He described how he planned the strategies with plans  for groups of  soldiers to  march into terrorist areas.  But he said he is definitely not suitable to be a  politician, and that he would have been much respected out side politics, as a retired hero who helped to end terrorism..
There was one that argued  that speaking about change of regime in Sri Lanka and the need of the West to retain its leadership in the world  and  check mate China’s and Russia’s influence in the Indian Ocean are not matters that interest the ordinary people.  He said that the fear of the West that the formidable economic advancement of Sri Lanka would be  followed by the rest of the developing countries would be a great threat to USA and the West, is not the concern of the ordinary people.  
He says  what the people are interested in is  to  buy milk to feed their child,  and have consumable commodities at affordable prices. It is where he says that the President Mahinda Rajapakse failed and faced the inevitable consequences.
The UNP and the President Maitripala Sirisena would not confine  their witch hunt against the President Mahinda Rajapakse, because there are other important persons who have to be put in the same cell along with the former President Mahinda Rajapakse, if they are to be assured of a win at the election.
Tissa Attanayake the former General Secretary of the UNP is also an important man, now a dangerous stumbling block for a UNP walkover at a general election. Tissa Attanayake had  been quite  frank throughout after his cross over stating that he is a member of the UNP and shall always remains an ardent member of his party.  But he says  that he crossed over because he did not like UNP becoming a secondary political party having to ask its members to vote to elect some one out side UNP and select not their traditional symbol of elephant but  a swan.
Tissa Attanayake has not completely lost his popularity amoung the ordinary members of the UNP.   He is a danger for the UNP in the forthcoming elections. Therefore the UNP leadership is all out to see that the same fate earmarked for the President Mahinda Rajapakse falls on him as well .  Therefore, while he was given bail, is now to be arrested on another charge:
“ Former UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake will be charged by police on attempt of causing racial unrest under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights Act of 2007.
……………. the document allegedly forged by the MP claiming to be a secret agreement between the Tamil National Alliance and the then common presidential candidate, President Maithripala Sirisena would have caused racial disharmony. "In the document there are statements regarding the removal of military camps from the North and an agreement to implement the UNHRC proposals", and these statements could have caused conflicts among groups of people.”
Police are investigating if the MP had intended to cause such issues,"  said the Police Spokesman..

President Maithripala Sirisena now the Leader of the SLFP with a great debt he thinks he owes to UNP for having made him the President of Sri Lanka,  had heard that the Political parties allied to SLFP in the UPFA are proposing to field  the former President Mahinda Rajapakse as their Prime Minister Candidate  at the next elections. 
Therefore Maitripala Sirisena  fears the consequences of his victory  and proposes a National Government without an opposition , while preparing probably  to stop that possibility of Mahinda Rajapakse contesting under UPFA, by arresting him after investigation of allegations against him by a Special  investigations  Committee of the President, and to get a kangaroo court to remove his civic rights.

President Maitripala Sirisena  was perhaps seeking  sympathy of the Nurses in Maharagam when he spoke of how he was humiliated by the former President Mahinda Rajapakse in the presence of the CTC representatives, but that may be the psychological back ground in which he seeks that allegations against the former President be proceeded with before the end of 100 days. 

In the meantime CTC  has strongly contradicted Minister Dr. Senaratne’s allegation that massive bribes had been paid to the previous government to thwart Maithripala Sirisena’s anti-tobacco campaign.
The atmosphere in every sector of administration in Sri Lanka is gloomy The Chairperson of the University Grants Commission (UGC) Prof. Kshanika Hirimburegama has tendered her resignation to President Maithripala Sirisena through the Minister of Higher Education.  She was appointed by the former President. She was the country’s first woman appointed as the Chairman of the UGC.

 It is a coincidence that the first woman Chief Justice  impeached under the former President  was reinstated by the Maitripal Sirisena regime and the  first woman Chairperson of UGC appointed by the former President was made to resign under the Maitripala Sirisena Regime.

The UNP Minister of Finance does not take no for an answer when there is no corruption he insists there is corruption. “

“Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake yesterday said that former President Mahinda Rajapaksa has spent public funds lavishly and he had ample evidence to prove how he had done so.
It is amusing if somebody says that former President has not been allocated a budget of a staggering Rs. 10,000 million. Karunanayake queried as to why such a colossal amount of money has been required by the former President.” 
Ravi Karunanayake cannot, understand.  He must still be believing that the army went to Medawchchi when it really went to Kilinochchi.
He accused Gotabhaya Rajapakse having a personal account of 8 billion rupees in the BoC, and when it was refuted by the new Secretary of Defence , he continued with his allegation pointing out the irregularity of having an account in the Defence Secretariat.
He follows Goebel’s tactic of go on repeating a lie until it sounds true, probably on the instructions of his Masters from the West.
In the mean time there are other moves to take revenge  and  put miscreants of the previous government in  prison. Minister  Kiriella had  said the government decided to establish a Financial Crimes Investigation Division under the supervision of the police chief "to investigate into large scale financial transactions including money laundering activities."   
That means Ravi Karunanayake may also  probably be investigated by this Financial Crimes Investigation Division.

Ranil Wickramasinghe’s 100 day cabinet is going in a big way after those who have been accused of corruption and malpractices, “ The Cabinet of Ministers had also approved a proposal by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe to set up a secretariat to investigate into alleged large-scale corruption and malpractices of the previous government.”
Why only the previous government ?
If  it is going to be a Secretariat for Investigation of Corruption it should include Ministers of previous UNP Governments as well.  Otherwise it is dictatorial and anti democratic. That is no Yahapalanaya.
Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe seems to be shivering in his boots fearing to face an election as the leader of the  UNP.  In order to avoid that situation  he announces gleefully addressing an event at Royal College, Colombo  that  he, “ … does not want to form a United National Party (UNP) government at the next General Election and that he desires for the entire Parliament to be a government.  What we have done is to work together with all the parties. In a way this is a challenge. In a way it’s an opportunity,” “Because my hope is that after the next election, people ask me ‘are you going to form a UNP government? Are you going to form a UNP-SLFP government? Are you going to form an anti-Mahinda government?’ And my answer to all that is, no. I want the whole parliament to be a government,”. 
That would avoid his 30th defeat at an election.

President Maitripala  Sirisena, Ranil Wickramasinghe and Champika Ranawaka have other people in view to put in  the cell along with  Mahinda Rajapakse.  There is Wimal Weerawanse  they fear,  and want to stop being heard during  the next election campaign.  They have got the police to put his wife also into the prison for using two passports with differing personal information.

What a crazy set up we have as a Government ?

There was an interesting column in the Island  News Paper-Anama Manam  written by Hemantha Warnakulasuriya, an excerpt of which is given below:

 “……Today, Maithreepala Sirisena came to power to stop corruption and central and to usher in a new epoch of good governance,which consists in the authoritarian powers vested in the executive presidency upholding the rule of law. So every single crime committed by the previous regime must be carefully investigated and if the police and the AG’s Department are of the view that there is prima facie case, the suspect should he be produced in Court. Only a competent judge can find the accused guilty I have read that suggested that Special presidential commissions be established to try these offenders. I am appalled that those who came to power, promising governance, could even think that a Special Presidential Commission would bring the culprits to book. This monster was created by J. R.Jayewardena to disfranchise Sirimavo Bandaranaike, and Chandrika Bandaranaike used her powers to have several Presidential Commissions, including investigations into the Batalanda torture chamber, the killing of Vijaya Kumaranathunga, the killing of Lalith Athulathmudali and Denzil Kobbekaduwa. As a lawyer who appeared before almost all the Commissions,I knew it was a politically motivated judicial circus its nadir, and the Supreme Court decided the evidence collected for a number of years by one of these Commissions was not sufficient even to hang a rat. I believe that Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe will advise the President against the establishment of Special Presidential Commission, which would be tatamount to burying the Rule of Law and ushering in an era of ‘Yakapalanaya’, instead of ‘Yahapalanaya’.

In the mean time Mangala Samaraweera is courting USAUSA knows what the black politicians  want for them to be ever grateful to them.  Just a tap on the back and an invitation for a cup of tea is more than enough to satisfy our Foreign Minister who is looking for Rajapaksa’s hidden treasures.

Sri Lanka is a Police State

 How happy were the people of Sri Lanka before the 8th January, 2015.    Of course there are those who are never happy and for them nothing is good unless  the government brings down prices so that they can  satisfy their hungry stomachs  and the cost of living  is satisfactorily low.   The terrorists were eliminated five years ago and now there is considerable peace, and a sense of security. 

Therefore for those who constantly think of  cost of  food items, and   wants prices of essential commodities brought down,   that  terrible past is now not important, it was just the past and best be  forgotten along with those who had made it possible and the others that gave their lives to bring them that peace and security they now enjoy.

Now there is an opposition prepared to attack that great man President Mahinda  Rajapakse who was electorally defeated, and his Ministers and all those closely or distantly connected to him.  There had never been a consortium of an opposition political parties  like the UNP, JVP,JHU,TNA and SLMC in the past history of Sri Lanka, nor in the world against any government.

President Mahinda Rajapakse is a great leader and an uncrowned King of the people and for those 58 percent of the Sinhala Buddhist voters he still  remains the one and only great political  leader of the people of  Sri Lanka to emerge this century despite  all the effort by the opposition UNP, JVP, JHU,TNA to prove otherwise by mudslinging, making allegation of corruption, theft, crimes and what  you name it these opposition MPS  have an allegation against it as committed by that great leader Mahinda Rajapakse or some one connected to him.

Recently Ranjan Ramanayake  a most undisciplined, impolite and crude Deputy Minister of the Police State of Sri Lanka even raided a Buddhist Meditation Centre because it is  said to have been used by  the peoples’  leader Mahinda Rajapakse for his Meditation retreats,  this Deputy Minister a Christian thought it too clean and luxurious to be a meditation centre. 

Investigation by this police state is now underway as to who constructed the  meditation centre ? How many people worked to construct it ?  Whether government vehicles were used for transport of material etc.?

Since the departure of the President Mahinda Rjapakse- the departure which the majority of the people at least the Sinhala Buddhists very much regret , such investigations by police , Ministers and JVP  barging into private lands and homes have not ceased.

Yes, Sri Lanka is no more what it had been for the last ten years, it is now a Police State.  It appears that every Minister of this Police State of Ranil Wickramasinge has to make at least one accusation against the  President Mahinda Rajapakse or any one closely or distantly connected to him every day for 100 days. 

They began by making Sri Lanka a Police State of the UNP,JVP and JHU by Setting up a National Executive Committee without any legal right and completely outside the Constitution. The head of the investigations is Anura Kumara Dissanayake the leader of the  JVP.  JVP has opened a Crime Section in their Party to facilitate interrogations and  make accusations of Bribery and Corruption. 

This Police State has taken over the media under its control, the former President Mahinda Rajapakse or any one connected to him is debarred from the TV, Radio or Press, not allowing them to defend themselves against false allegations being heaped against them.

This Police State of Sri Lanka has taken the Law into its own hands , it has even superceded  the Parliament of Sri Lanka to sack the Chief Justice, appoint  a previously impeached Chief Justice and allow her to retire and appointed another Chief Justice.  All that with a swift stroke from the Presidential pen.   

The President of the BASL a lawless group of lawyers has been appointed as a Chairman of the Board of Investments in Sri Lanka  by the President surely  to compensate him for the role he had played in allowing the President and Prime Minister to sack the Chief Justice Mohan Peiris.  Maitripala Sirisena did not want to take his Oath as President  before the Chief Justice Mohan Pieris , but under Judge Sripavan because he was a Tamil.

The  act of the Police State illegally  usurping the powers of the Parliament  makes null and void the sacking of the Chief Justice Mohan Peiris,  reinstating the impeached CJ Shirani Bandaranayake and appointing  new Chief Justice K.Sripavan.

Every one of the Ministers of this Police State bent on making allegations for bribery and corruption against the previous government has not done any thing for the benefit of the people who elected a new President seeking  a difference (venasa). 

The budget  of Ravi Karunanayake still under a legal cloud for LTTE money laundering  was passed thanks to the benevolence of the SLFP Parliamentarians has not given the promised  relief to the poor. The budget which reduced the price of kaha(kurkuma), kottamalli( coriander)  is not a people friendly budget as the UNP and JHU are trying to make out. 

Today on February 10th people complain that in shops no reductions have been made on commodities  on which the government claims to have  slashed prices. But Anura Kumara Dissanayake the Crime Investigator of the Police State is vociferous about corruption  but silent on benefits to people from the government it protects.

The Government Servants complain that they did not receive the promised increase of Salary in February .  The private sector  workers have not even been promised an increase by their patrons.  The Private sector workers say that they have been deceived by this government. People are beginning to feel that they have made a mistake in giving their vote to Maithripala Sirisena for a change (venasa)

Ravi Karunanayake the Finance Minister having failed with his allegation against Gotabhaya Rajapakse ‘s private account of  rupees eight billion, now complain 2100 files are missing in the treasury.  Curious how came with the exact number of lost files.  It may be another story like the eight billion account of Gotabhaya Rajapakse.

Police is also with the State  and seems to be working  to satisfy the people  with their  raids , arrests and interrogations  of even the wife of the former Minister of Housing  and construction as that is all  what people seek  as benefit from the government of Maitripala Sirisena they elected for the famous VENESA which has still not arrived.

Sajith Premadasa who is at last a Minister  has already engaged a British Audit Firm to investigate  his Ministry for bribery corruption by the former Minister Wimal Weerawansa  cries from the top of his voice about :

“…quelling the overwhelming corruption and financial irregularities at the Ministry and institutions under it. He has taken the initiative to personally employ the two world-famous audit firms “Ernst & Young”, and “PricewaterhouseCoopers” to carry out these audit reports and it’s been reported that this will be done without any burden to the Government of Sri Lanka which is that this will be conducted free of charge,. In that manner the audit for the ministry of housing will be conducted by “Ernst & Young”, while the audit for the Samurdhi will be handled by “PricewaterhouseCoopers”.

It would also be remarkable if he could investigate the past activities of Paskaralingam former Secretary of the Finance Ministry under his father R.Premadasa  and his right hand man. If he does he will learn that his father was also not that clean as he thinks.

 It is said that President Premadasa spent money on his projects without going through financial regulations and it was Paskaralingam who arranged every thing.

Paskaralingam is back again in Sri Lanka after eight years, staying in  Hotel Galadari in Colombo under a false name.
The Sunday Times spent weeks trying to track him down. Last week, Paskaralingam, or 'Paski' as he is known, finally relented and gave a rare interview in which he describes his present role but would not talk about the past. Citing legal advice, he declined to comment on the allegations against him or the Special Presidential Commission of Inquiry into malpractices in public bodies that found him guilty of 'misuse or abuse of power' and recommended that he be deprived of his civic rights.”
Below are some of the questions he was asked and his  replies:
  • an you at least say why you didn't bother to appear before the Presidential Commission of Inquiry?
I don't want to answer that question either. These are legal matters which have been dealt with and finally the Supreme Court had found me not guilty of whatever charges that were brought against me. So I don't like to go into the pros and cons of it.
  • The Supreme Court decision was on technical grounds?
In my opinion, legally I've been found not guilty. The Supreme Court decided not to go into the substance of it. That is a matter on which I cannot answer.
  • During the previous UNP government you were seen as a kind of a 'super-bureaucrat' who was able to cut through red tape and speed up the decision making process. And also your personal relationship with President Premadasa counted a lot. Are such personal relationships required to run the administration? Shouldn't there be a system where personalities are irrelevant and the system takes care of the decision-making?
Always, a proper system must be in place. Personal relationships and arrangements are only temporary.
  • Do you think such a system is in place now?
A system is being developed.”

Mangala Samaraweera has the best of time.  He is always abroad this time in USA trying to look where  President Mahinda Rajapakse has hidden money he had stolen.   They are also investigating banc in Seychelle for  President’s hidden money.

What a circus ?  

These are some of the fruitless activities of the Police State of Sri Lanka where people have lost their hope  for progress and a bright future they had under the former President Mahinda Rajapakse.

Do not worry my people, the Police State will not last long.

Selling Sri Lanka in hundred days to USA, India , UK and the West.

Daily Mirror Cartoon

There was a Presidential election in Sri Lanka on the 8 January,2015.  It was to elect a President, but not to change the Government.  Therefore when Maitripala Sirisena was elected President of Sri Lanka there was already a government headed by  Prime Minister D.M.Jayaratne.  Therefore , President Maitripala Sirisena should have normally continued with the existing government.  It happened in France where President Francois Mitterrand  continued  with the government of the Prime Minister  Jaques Chirac.


But Maitripala Sirisena  had two alternatives, that is either to continue with the government of the existing Prime Minister or dissolve the parliament and go for  a general election.  But he decided on ignoring the two alternatives and do the wrong thing by appointing Ranil Wickramasinghe according to a pre arranged agreement.  If the Prime Minister D.M.Jayaratne had refused to step down there would have been a political crisis..


But  every thing changed  with President Maitripala Sirisena  appointing  a Prime Minister who in his opinion would command the confidence of the Parliament. But the Prime Minister he selected being the leader of the UNP he  selected MPs from the UNP and other parties that had agreed to come together with the UNP to Present a Common Presidential Candidate. 


Ranil Wickramasinghe  does not command the confidence of many MPs in the Parliament.  So when President Sirisena says he has to stand by the UNP as it is they who helped him to come to power, he also owes a debt to the Prime Minister  D.M.Jayaratne  and his Ministers of the UPFA as they did not make any objection but gracefully stepped down allowing him to have his way.


However PM Ranil Wickramsinghe’scabinet of Ministers are there for the interim period before a general election, but they are acting  as they are  going to be Ministers for the same period as the President.  Therefore, they should be made   aware that they are only  stopgap Ministers  and therefore they should stop making use of their  position for an election campaign instead of keep an Administration functioning until the dissolution of the Parliament for a General election.


The present predominantly UNP Government of Ranil Wickramasinghe makes use of their  unexpected ascent to Ministerial position to  take  arbitrary decisions  to influence the voters in their favour and against the  government of the defeated candidate which  amounts to  using Ministerial powers for election purposes in view of the forth coming election.


It is same as the accusations these 100 day UNP Ministers  make against the former President as having used  state resources for  election purposes.  Even the 2015 mini Budget was and election budget used as a veritable means to bring  disrepute to the  previous  UPFA   government, and trying to  heap credit on themselves. The Commissioner of Election should perhaps take note.


This election budget of the 100 day UNP government reducing the  price of  a few  consumer commodities, is to  win over the  voters who had been crying for  a reduction of food prices.  This budget has also helped them to cover up their anti-people activities that will be given effect to according to the  pre-election agreements  they signed with TNA,JHU,SLMC,SF and so on. 


This election budget is also to   reverse the present development process assisted by the real friends of Sri Lanka such as China , Russia, Iran etc., to implement  the 13 Amendment as a precondition to allow the Tamils in the North  to set up an Eelam State and finally to allow  the unproductive Western enemies to interfere into the internal affairs of  Sri Lanka..  


The temporary 100 day government of Ranil Wickramasinghe  is doing  all it can to diminish the importance of great development projects undertaken by the previous government, and highlight what they assume were  Corruptions of the previous government, which they find difficult to prove.. 


The 100 day government of Ranil Wickramasinghe- a misfortune for Sri Lanka,  has monopolised the media using the TV, Radio and the press to make a real  media circus of  false accusations against the Ministers of the former Government including the President and his family and the Defence Secretary, again as a election gimmick to bring the voters onto their side projecting themselves as faultless  morally clean individuals, with a clean past. 


But the people of Sri Lanka have not fallen from the last rain and know very well what UNP  stands for and how clean the UNP Ministers- including the granter of redress( of Kilinochchi for Medawachchi fame) to a people conscious only of their stomachs , are with their stinking past histories of corruption.


The Media made a big issue , going on Ravi Karunanayake’s statement, of a Rupees  8 billion account in the name of Gotabhaya Rajapakse in the BOC, but it was immediately proved wrong, and so was the information with regard to the 16 Million Dollar private aircraft supposed to have been acquired by the former President  Mahinda Rajapakse announced by the President Maitripala Sirisena himself   to defame  the President Mahinda Rajapakse.

 It   rebounded on President Maitriplala Sirisena  making him a liar , as there had never been such a command to acquire a private  aircraft. It had been only a publicity for a VIP kit that could be bought along with the purchase of an Air craft.


This President Maitripala Sirisena of back stabbing fame has not stopped after defamation of Mahinda Rajapakse with false stories of corruption but gone further  informing the people in Polonnaruwa that if he had  lost the election he would have been in a grave  in an unknown Cemetery. 


But the people of Sri Lanka  loves Mahinda Rajapakse  and knows  that he  would have never stooped to assassinate his rival  not to speak of  back stabbing some one who placed his trust on him, to take his place.  The President Mahinda Rajapakse had been brought up with  great Buddhist moral values.


People would respect  the President Maitripala Sirisen if he would stop the vendetta against  the former President Mahinda Rajapakse, and if he, his political adviser Chandrika, his Prime Minister , his Ministers and the JVP hangers on, would leave  his  wife and his children out of his campaign  of vengeance against the former President.


Why is this President Maitripala Sirisena so naïve to standby while Ranil Wickramasinghe  makes statements that put  Sri Lanka seriously in danger of a territorial separation ? 

Ranil Wickramasinghe is still  acting the way he did when he was the Prime Minister of Chandrika Kumratunga  signing the CFA giving control of the North to the terrorists, just taking  the Norwegian Eric Solheim to trust.  If Ranil  has to please a white man he will give him even should be taken seriously.


Maitripala Sirisena is a weak President allowing Ranil, Madam Chandrika, Mangala Samaraweera and Rajita Senaratne  say and do things without paying attention to his views as the President.   Maitripala Sirisena who is now the Prersident of Sri Lanka should be able to assert his leadership without being pitifully grateful to those who brought him to power.  That is the past. He is  now  in power and he has to be in the position of a commander,  but he vacillates showing his weakness as a leader.  Ranil Wickramasinghe and Chandrika profit from this. 


President Sirisena  says, “ I cannot forget the UNP voters who made me the President of Sri Lanka. At the same time, can’t do away with the SLFP voters who now consider me as their leader. So, I have to act very carefully and patiently. This will open an avenue to create a new political culture in Sri Lanka ,”  It is he who has to shape the new political culture and put his imprint on it. He should not let Ranil, Chandrika and JVP to shape that political culture.  

For that he has not got to cringe showing his gratitude to Ranil or Chandrika or Rajitha or any one else  saying that it is they who made him the President.  He has to give the lead  for other to follow him.


The people of this country will like Maitripala Sirisena if  he can only change his attitude towards  the former President Mahinda Rajapakse.  Maitripala Sirisena surely knows him better than Ranil or Chandrika. Rajitha was  a UNP man who turned his coat to join the government of Mahinda Rajapakse.  Mangala Samaraweera  has an axe to grind having had been sacked from the Cabinet of the former President.


Maitripala Sirisena once said that he knew there was a plan for his life and for his wife and children if he had lost the election.  He surely knows that he is not speaking the truth.  He knew Rajapakse better.  That is  an attitude of  a paranoia of  one who knows that he had wronged Mahinda Rajapakse in accepting to be the common candidate.


Ranil Wickramasinghe and Chandrika Kumaratunga are misleading the President Maitripala Sirisena.   How was it and under whose direction was   a National Advisory Committee came to be elected ? Is there provisions in  the Constitution of Sri Lanka for such a Committee. ? It has now become a liability with JVP setting up its own office of public complaints against the Previous Government of the President Mahinda Rajapakse. 


Please wake up President Maitripala Sirisena , please  make the atmosphere in Sri Lanka after your election  peaceful, cordial, and compassionate.


The JVP a political party of rabble rousers  should not be in such a committee(NAC),  as  the JVP was not even a party to the group of  Political Parties that joined the UNP to put forward a Common Presidential Candidate.


Today Anura Kumara Dissanayake is acting like the Chief of Gestapo. Is this a democratic government that President Maitripala Sirisena has set up ?


Ranil Wicramasinghe  the Prime Minister and his Cabinet of Ministers are all out to investigate any body having even a distant connection to the previous government  for bribery and corruption. 


Even the Litro Gaz , is under investigation, despite its Managing Director Kuda Balage had been extremely efficient to make Litro Gaz a profit making enterprise.  Now he is being investigated all because ex-employees of Litro gaz made a complaint. One wonder to what extent the former director Nishad deldeniya could be trusted. Perhaps he is trying to take an old grudge against Kuda Balage.  Milco Land deal is also being investigated  despite the fact that Soft Logic  had said that it had not signed any contract to purchase land belonging to Milco.  


This government has nothing to be proud of other than being investigators of past corruptions, mud slinging, accusing persons for imagined bribery and corruption.  The former President Mahinda Rajapakse never indulged in those dirty,  mean political gimmicks though there were many in the UNP and the JVP who should have been investigated not only for bribery and corruption, but also for torture and crimes.

The 100 day Minster of Justice Wijedasa Rajapakse of the Yahapalana Regime of Maitripala Sirisena  says they will not arrest anyone at will, the way the previous Rajapaksa regime did without ascertaining the legitimacy of the case and with utter disregard to people's fundamental rights.  But the Government of hundred days and their supporting political groups the JHU, JVP and the TNA have become a law unto themselves, making Complaints to Bribery and Corruption Commission without acceptable evidence of  corruption.
Vendetta, revenge, mudslinging, raking all dirty garbage in search of evidence to inculpate the former president, his government his family or any one closely or distantly connected to  him . Only close connection to the previous government  is good enough for them to be arbitrarily accuse any one  without any evidence , and that too in a mighty  hurry before the 100 days run out.  

But contrary to what the  100 day Minister of Justice proudly asserts , Tissa Attanayake the former Minister of Health  had been arbitrarily arrested and taken handcuffed like a criminal .   “Opposition Leader Nimal Siripala de Silva said the Speaker should be informed of the arrest of MPs in terms of the Parliamentary Privileges Act”. Mr. Attanayake was arrested  in terms of the prevalent   Maithri Palanaya.

Bravo Justice Minister  Wijedasa Rajapakse and your yahapalanaya. 

Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera has said, that it needs to convince the world that it has a judiciary that is competent, independent and impartial which can rank among the best anywhere in the world. Is Samaraweera speaking through his mouth or else where?  
The 100 day government has turned out to be utterly dictatorial without any respect to law and justice.   It  treated the Chief Justice Mohan Pieris,  the way  a respectable democratic law abiding government  would have never treated  the country’s Chief Justice. 
Where is the justice Mangala Samaraweera is   speaking about  when the President of Sri Lanka on the advice of his Prime Minister  re instated a legally impeached ex Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayke, sacked without even consulting the Parliament the legally appointed Chief Justice Mohan Pieris, and appointed a citizen of Singapore K.Siripavan as the Chief Justice. 
Is this the Justice practiced in Sri Lanka today?    
In reality the Judge K.Siripavan who is said to be a citizen of Singapore named by the President Maitripala Sirisena  may not have the right to be the  Chief Justice of  Sri Lanka.
Despite this legal comedy enacted by the BASL, Ranil Wicramasinghe and President Maitripala  Sirisena, according to the existing law of Sri Lanka there is still one Chief Justice in Sri Lanka and he  is CJ Mohan Pieris.
Mangala Samaraweera  has said , “the challenge today is to ensure that Sri Lanka is able to effectively enjoy the rights, privileges and benefits of re-entering the community of civilized nations and ensure that Sri Lanka, as a country, do not suffer economic sanctions, ill-dignity and a tarnished reputation because Sri Lanka fears justice or because Sri Lanka is too short sighted to be able to pursue that justice in a credible manner.”
What does Samaraweera mean , “that Sri Lanka is able to effectively enjoy ?
Does he mean that China , Russia and other Asian , African and Middle Eastern countries with which we had relations were not “civilised nations”  and only USA and the Western Countries are civilised nations?  
These 100 day Ministers  are really a set of Western “b..m suckers”

Perhaps the Western Regime Changers will agree, because what they want is a Western puppet government in place in Sri Lanka.  Barack Obama the President of USA has “ hailed Sri Lanka’s  new hopes for democracy in passing remarks  about India’s  role  in helping countries  in the region  forge a bright future….”(Daily FT)
India is already paving the way for the yahapalanaya of Maitripala Sirisena to see the end of any trace of  Mahinda Rajapakse and his ten year rule, in Sri Lanka.

India will help Sri Lanka set up a finance intelligence unit (FIU)-like entity in the island nation at Colombo's request to trace more than $5 billion allegedly stashed overseas by the erstwhile Rajapaksa regime.
President Maithripala Sirisena is moving to fulfill electoral promises to check corruption and repatriate money allegedly siphoned off abroad by Mahinda Rajapaksa, who ruled Sri Lanka for a decade, and members of his family, government s “

With proposed  diminishing the  Chinese participation in development projects, USA is already coming forward to replace China. US Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia, Mrs. Nisha Biswal, called on President Maithripala Sirisena Monday (02) afternoon at the Presidential Secretariat.

 “……….She ….said that Sri Lanka can count on the United States to be a partner and a friend in the way forward. Whether it is on rebuilding the economy, on preventing corruption and advancing good governance, and ensuring human rights and democratic participation for all of its citizens.  US look forward to growing and deepening the partnership between the two countries, to advancing trade and investment, she added.”

Washington post reported— “The surprise defeat of Sri Lanka's authoritarian leader and the new government's early steps to end repression have stirred U.S. hopes that the South Asian island nation can revive ties with Washington and distance itself to some degree from China.”

A tap on the back for regime change without any effort on the part of USA with NATO Forces ?

Ranil Wickramasinghe and his UNP Ministers are in a mighty hurry to ruin the reputation of the former President, his government and his entourage  in order to get credit for themselves and score points to win  at the General election with a majority.   In their frenzy they accuse every thing and every one

President Maitripala Sirisena says openly that Sri Lanka will follow a middle path foreign policy but behind scene turns his back to China and Russia courting  USA , the West and India.
Reuter reports that, “……..Sirisena's administration has ordered a review of all Chinese infrastructure projects awarded under Rajapaksa, a move expected to sit well with India and Western nations concerned about Beijing's growing influence and military presence in the region……...”
In the mean time UK is back in Sri Lanka giving support to the regime that saw an end to Rajapakse Regime.
Hugo Swire UK Foreign Minister hastened to visit the new Pro West Government of President Maitripala Sirisena.  They are now quite at home in Sri Lanka.  Swire had said:
"It is also heartening to see such a renewed desire to reconcile communities and seek a long-term peace for Sri Lanka," Mr. Swire said calling for Sri Lanka to reach a political settlement to the Tamil issue and address the accountability issues.
"This will need to include the establishment of a long-term political settlement in the North, and credible processes for reconciliation and accountability to tackle the issues that remain following Sri Lanka's long conflict."
Minister Swire expressed hope that the new government would cooperate with the United Nations investigation on alleged war crimes during the three-decade long war.
"As part of this, we hope that the new Sri Lankan Government will work together with the international community at the UN Human Rights Council, and will co-operate with the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights' investigation into alleged war crimes during the final stage of the Sri Lankan conflict," Mr. Swire said.
In the mean John Blaird the Canadian Foreign Minister  a great critic of the President Mahinda Rajapakse, whose country boycotted the CHOGM has said:
“Following the successful elections earlier this month, it is our hope that President Maithripala Sirisena fulfills the mandate given to him by the people of Sri Lanka to foster a transparent, responsive and pluralistic government. Canada will continue to encourage progress in the devolution of power, accountability and genuine reconciliation,” Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird said. 
Mr. Baird said they also welcomed the recent appointment of a civilian, H.M.G.S. Palihakkara, to replace a retiring senior military commander as governor of the predominantly Tamil Northern Province. ….”

As a further  addition to this long political comedy, Sajith Premadasa has engaged  an English Audit Firm  to investigate bribery and corruption In the Ministry of Housing and Samurdhi.  with a view to inculpate both Wimal Weerawansa and Basil Rajapakse.  It will also be another fizzling out bomb (pus bombe) like all the rest of allegations of corruption and bribery to date.

 People are getting tired of  the 100 day government and its Minister Policemen hunting for bribe takers  and  corrupt Ministers , officials and company directors.

When is this Media  Comedy going to end ? 

Will this government ever sit down to do some honest work?
