Enough is Enough ……… !

Are we  living today in  Sri Lanka that was there on the 8th January, 2015 ? 
8th January, 2015 seems a long time ago.

Since the Minister of Health of the  former President Mahinda Rajapakse’s Government  left stealthily in the night without even a word to the mat on which he slept (peduratath nokiya), to join a band of reactionary  America and West inspired traitors,  Sri Lanka commenced a downward journey, sacrificing its sovereignty, independence, fast growing economy, massive development projects and a peaceful march towards the   happiness of the people, progress and prosperity. 

Sirsena now says that under President Mahinda Rajapakse no-cabinet Minister could act freely, and that he had been questioned about his Ministerial work.
 “President Sirisena speaking at the occasion reminisced at how meeting with trade union leaders were looked upon at under the previous regime. He noted that while serving as the Minister of Health if he met with any trade union leaders, the following day he would receive a telephone call from Temple Trees questioning his actions.
That shows that the former President Mahinda Rajapakse was an intelligent man taking interest in the work of the Minister of  his Cabinet, to know how they contribute to the welfare of the  people  they have been elected to serve.  That is a quality of leadership. Under President Sirisena, Ministers  do just what they want without hardly a question asked by the President.

This illegal Government set in place by a President who was elected with a resounding minority vote from the North and East of the country  has failed to maintain  law and order. Case in point is the activities of  the Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe  he appointed. 

Ranil Wicramasinghe  the Prime Minister of the President Sirisena has begun to question even the sentences passed by the Supreme Court  stating that the judgments of the judiciary will be forward to  a foreign court of law for their approval. That is sacrificing the Sovereignty of Sri Lanka.

There is a special police force the FCID  under him, which arrests and releases whoever Ranil Wickramasinghe  wants to be taken into police custody. Most Vulnerable are the family members of the former President   Mahinda Rajapakse, or Wives of Ministers.  Prime Minister defends he wants when every thing points to his  guilt, such as the Suprime Court decision to refuse to here a case against the Governor of the Central Bank.

Sri Lanka has become a dictatorship of the Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe .  It is time that the people begin to speak out against him to change the situation as there is no more democracy, or Justice in Sri Lanka.  People can be accused for the flimsiest matter and taken to police first for recording statements and arrested  thereafter to be placed in  remand jail. 

And finally when the cases are taken up and if the sentences by the Judges are not to the liking of the Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe proposes sending  the judicial decision  for  approval of the  Commonwealth Office.

The former Minister G.L.Pieris had said  with regard to the SC decision not to allow  Gotabhaya Rajapakse to be arrested until the end of the FR case that, the  “Premier Wickremesinghe asserted that Sri Lanka could consult Commonwealth Judges Association as well as Commonwealth Magistrates’ Association regarding the Supreme Court directive in this regard. He pointed out that President Maithripala being the current chair of the Commonwealth. The Prime Minister stressed that if given the opportunity, he could easily defend the government position.”

Sri Lanka under President Sirisena and his acolyte Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasignhe appear to be a kind of a Revolutionary Junta State.  People  begin to ask whether this is the ‘venasa’- the Change the people expected when they voted to elect Maithripala Sirisena in preference to Mahinda Rajapakse ?

Sri Lanka has become such a police state today that it had never been  Since its Independence. People live in fear of arrest,  and open the daily paper not to see what progress country has made, what school, roads, bridges and hospitals are being opened, but to see who is the  innocent  man that has been arrested recently and against whom and  what defamatory statements have been made or against whom false allegations have been levelled.

A doctor with whom I was when it was announced that the Diyawadane Nilema was accused asked, when is this comedy going to end ? Who will they think of next ?

That is how good things are  with President Sirisena’s Government !!!

Perhaps the President Sirisena does not know most of what disastrous actions are being taken behind his back by the set of UNP Minister under him, hence Sirisena seems  to leave what he does not understand in the hands of his UNP Ministers without questions being asked. For instance does he know what transpired between John Kerry and Mangala Samaraweera and what promises the latter had made to the former ?

Sirisena’s UNP Ministers; and  Deputy Ministers are acting most stupidly like Ranjan Ramanayake for instance trespassing into a Meditation Centre, or enter Hotels with hidden cameras abusing their  powers without the President Sirisena knowing absolutely  nothing about those incidents. Or Mangala Samaraweera claiming that the former President had siphoned off  18 billion  US Dollars.

Is President Sirisena proud about  such statements of Mangala, Sajith, Kabir , Ranjan or Rajitha ?

President Sirisena is a laughing stock for his UNP Ministers.  Poor man !  he is like the Greek King who is  said to have been going about naked believing  highly those who spoke praisingly of a dress he was not wearing.

How can Basil Rajapakse be accused for distribution of Divineguma Funds when Sajith is doing the same thing to-day ?  Is there any rhyme or reason in their accusations, calling to be present to take a statement and end up being  arrested, apparently not for any crime but because they were in some way Connected to the former President Mahinda Rajapakse. 

This is all vengeance of a bad man, against a good man.

But little they seem to understand that the Maitripala Sirisena’s UNP government has neither the legal right to exist as a government of Sri Lanka , nor have they even  the moral right to pretend to be the Ministers of the people. They had been there for more than 100 days and there is absolutely no reason for them to continue.  They should step down taking along with them the FCID and the Bribery Commissioner.

Making defamatory statements have become the practice of the Ministers of the President Sirisenaincluding the Prime Minister.   None other than the Minister of Justice Wijeyadasa Rajapakse himself makes unsubstantiated accusations without the slighted proof. 

It was  reported that, “Justice Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe, PC yesterday alleged that Rs. 3,300 million had been misappropriated from the Department of the Public Trustee (DPT) during the previous regime.  Speaking at the ceremony to welcome the newly appointed Sri Lanka's first female Public Trustee Tharangani Keenawinna Dissanayake at the department, he said the recent audits had revealed thousands of rupees were improperly taken from DPT for development projects by the previous government ”.

If he is a man worthy of the position he holds he should refrain from making such statements.  He should first investigate to have reliable information before making accusatory statements.

The other Minister is the former dentist Rajitha Senaratne, who was reported to have claimed that, “ ……. he was offered a bribe of Rs 20 million per month in order to cover up the ‘Avant-Garde’ issue. ………..  He has added  that the  individuals who attempted to bribe him earn a monthly income of around Rs 250 million”.  Of course this has to be taken with a pinch of salt as most of his statements, because it was further reported that, “……Refusing to divulge any names, Dr. Senaratne alleged that because the attempt to bribe him had failed they had spread a story accusing his son of detaining an underage girl.’
The crust of it is that Senaratne is trying to  cover up his moral shame for having allowed his son to kidnap a teen age girl and keep her in his own house.
The best thing he could have done was to hand over  the matter to the Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe’s  police force the FCID, instead of making false statements to make them sound true.
The other white knight in Ranil’s cabinet is Champika Ranawake  who wants Sri Lanka to imitate the West.   He is reported to have said, “Our politicians want to stay in power till they die without letting fresh faces come forward. If they think more progressively and step down it will be better for the future of our country,” Patali Champika Ranawaka, Minister of Power and Energy said, adding that, ‘Sri Lankan politicians can take a good example from the British politicians and the way they acted following the elections that was concluded earlier this month (May),”
Champika Ranawaka should have said that to his champion  the  Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe who was rejected 29 times by the people.

Sirisena-Ranil government has miserably failed to make the people of this country happy for even  a day.  Though they- the President and  Ranil’s UNP Ministers in tie and black suits seem to be enjoying their lives  as they seem to have never enjoyed ever  before. 

The people of the North and the East and the Tamil diaspora they thought were utterly satisfied with their selling out  the provinces to the TNA and they  have no fear from that side.  But they have got the surprise( only if they are not fools and would understand what lies under the statement) of their lives  in the statement issued by the TGTE.

It was reported that,In a rebuttal to the Sri Lankan Minister’s Statement, TGTE member Suthan Raj pointed out that when President Maithripala Sirsena was visiting London, thousands of Tamils demonstrated against him, calling him a war criminal, for being the acting defense minister during the final weeks of the war when thousands of Tamils were killed. Thousands also marched in Geneva two months ago against the Sri Lankan Government’s policies towards Tamils and to call for an International Investigation for the mass killing of Tamils by the Sri Lankan security forces.”

Well Mr.President Maithripala Sirisena do you not think that it is time that you wake up to reality and kick out Ranil, his no-good UNP Ministers in tie and coat, and all the rest, and put your pride in the pocket to invite the former President Mahinda Rajapakse to form a duo to govern Sri Lanka together and bring back the pride Sri Lanka enjoyed as a developing Nation after elimination of the terrorists and up to the 8th of January, 2015.

Otherwise Sri Lanka has no future existence as an independent Sovereign Sate.
