Are we living today in
that was there on the 8th
January, 2015 ? Sri Lanka
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
Court decision to refuse to here a case against
the Governor of the Central Bank.
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
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
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
'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 ”. Sri Lanka
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
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),” Sri Lanka
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
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.
has no future existence as an independent Sovereign Sate. Sri Lanka
