Yahapalana Nadagama.

Mahadenamutta and five pupils

The Yahapalanaya is a Nadagama- Mahadenamutta and his pupils.  Mahadenamutta had five pupils . He himself had given names to them according to their appearance. One was Indikatu Pencha – a thin tall man, Kotu Kithaiya the one who looked like a stick, his favourite was Polbe Muna who had a round face like   half a coconut, Rabboda Aiya  had a big toddy belly, Puvak Badilla looked like an areccanut tree.  Some of these characters could be distinguished amoung the Yahapalana Nadagama crowd. Readers may name their characters in the Yahapalana Nadagama as it pleases them.

Nadagama begins with Pothe Gura announcing what is to follow- JVP fits into this role.

On the 8th January,2015, Ravi Karunanayake  had a case for money laundering.  The money is said to have come from none other than  Raja Rajaratnam  the fund provider for the terrorists.

The Colombo Telegraph reported “ The Attorney General indicted Nexia Corporation, Linton Sirisoma and Karunanayake for allegedly facilitating money laundering in violation of Central bank regulations and the Exchange Control Act by depositing Rs. 390 million in a Standard Chartered bank account, which had been later used to purchase shares of the Union Bank. The transfer had been made by Sri Lankan American billionaire and hedge fund dealer Raj Rajarathnam.

During the hearings it was alleged that Karunanayake was directly involved in the fraud and that he intervened to collect the funds once the money was deposited in Sri Lanka.

In the meantime there was a change of Government and as by magic  Ravi Karunanayake  the man who was under a Court order to present himself at the Court in Colombo on the 29 January,2015  to face the money laundering charges against him,   was named by  the unconstitutionally appointed UNP Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasing  as the Finance Minister.

Colombo Telegraph adds, that the “Exchange Control is the function of the Central Bank. The Central Bank is governed by the Monetary Board. The Secretary/Finance (Treasury) is a member of the Monetary Board. The Minister of Finance is the Boss of the Secretary/Finance. How nice to have a person charged with Exchange Control crimes as Finance Minister”

However, the very day that Ravi Karunanayake had been ordered to attend court to face money laundering charges, he had arranged to present the interim budget to the Parliament.  As he could not be present  both in the Court to face charges of fraud  and present the Budget in Parliament at the same time the Justice had to adjust itself to accede to the  request of the money launderer and postpones the hearing for the 4th March,2015.  What a windfall to a money launderer.

This is Yahapalana Nadagama.  They swear to honour democracy, fair-play and Justice , but from the Yahapalanaya President  to the Police constable of the Yahapalanaya Government police  force  on the road,  they  constantly break all democratic norms, moral codes, Constitutional provisions and above all twist justice to suit the political hierarchy  in a syndrome of fear  amoung the Judges for political punishment  by Ranil Wickramasinghe of Batalanda fame.

But yet we hear them yelling  that since they have  come to power there is democracy, press freedom,  justice, and no white vans.

They of the Yahapalanaya Nadagama have changed the white van to the Black Maria

Immedately after the Presidential elections of the 8th January, 2015,  it was the beginning of the Nadagama. First  the Marxist JVP-the pothe guras, who joined hands with the Capitalist UNP to change Rajapakse Regime, with files accusing the Previous President , members of his family, his government and all his contacts , under their arms on their way to the Office of the Commissioner of   Bribery and Corruption. Then  these “pothe guras” make the announcement to the press giving details of their accusations presented to the Bribery Commission.

Whether the accused is proved guilty or not is immaterial the notice of guilt is announced to the press.

One year after,  the Yahapalana Nadagama is still at its opening  scene of  carrying files containing accusations against the latest members who have connection to Rajapakse family. To facilitate matters they have gone a step further in their progressive development.  First Ranil –Polbe Muna, created  a FCID a secret police within the secret police specially for the Rajapakse family, their friends and all and sundry  to be arrested taken in the Black Maria and remanded.  Judicial procedures have been cut short.  The arrested remain in the remand jail until a judge is available to decide on their bailing out.

There have been so many cases filed, but no action has been taken on any one of them.  The Yahapalana Nadagama creates new courts and commissions,  all to accuse Rajapakse family and all connected to that family and the members of the  previous Government of Mahinda Rajapakse.

President Maithripala Sirisena – Mahadenamutta, not to be outdone by  Ranil  the Polbe Muna with his FCID wanted a Commission of his own to investigate the Rajapakses. The Special Presidential Commission on Large scale corruption to which  the Previous President Mahinda Rajapakse and his wife - the former First Lady are regularly called to take down statements.  Latest we hear is that the former first Lady may also be arrested and taken the Black Maria to the Welikada Prison.

Hiran Fernando UNP Minister was shouting at the top of his voice at Derana Wadapitiya today trying to justify  action taken by Yahapalana Nadagama by describing how Sarath Fonseka was dragged from his legs from Hilton Hotel to Prison by the previous government.

Besides these Yahapalana Nadagama has an Anti Corruption Front, and a Committee against Corruption headed by Ranil Wickramasinghe –Polbe Muna himself.  JVP  too has set up its own three man Committee of Investigation.  These are all there to investigate the previous government,  leaving  unchecked the corruption of the actors of the Yahapalanaya Nadagama.

This is the progress and development of Sri Lanka in terms of  -the Yahapalana Nadagama
Raj Gonsalkorale in an article in Asian Tribune justly says , “…..In this instance, the politics pertaining to allegations of large scale corruption against the previous regime has some ironies that need to be addressed. This is in regard to the inclusion of politicians belonging to the regime being investigated, in the regime that is doing the investigating…..
….Beginning with President Sirisena himself who was a senior cabinet member for ten years in the previous regime, there are several others. Ministers Rajitha Senaratne, Rauf Hakeem, Champika Ranawake, Navin Dissanayake, Duminda Dissanayake, Abdul Rishad Bathiudeen and Udelappan Palani Digambaram were all part of the previous regime. Besides them, there are several State and Deputy Ministers as well. They were all part of the previous regime.”
How much do all these investigation Commissions, Committees, Fronts and  the Criminal Investigation Divisions, and the Police  cost to the Yahapalana Nadagama with a dwindling economy ?

At least the roads that the previous government built bring in a substantial income while Yahapalanaya Nadagama has done nothing to develop the economy, health or wellbeing of the people, ever since it  took office on the 9th January,2015..

Yahapalana Nadagama -They have failed even to build a decent Public Toilet any where in Sri Lanka.

The period of time , since 8th January, 2015, is being used for investigations into the previous government of Mahinda Rajapakse searching for the bounties of his corruption which has eluded them,  but provided the Yahapalana Nadagama a stage to  carry on with its boring Nadagama.

In the meantime, National Freedom Front has lodged a complaint at the Bribery Commission that the Minister Rajitha Senaratne- the Puwak Badilla,  had acquired a fleet of 8 crafts at a cost of 400 million rupees and the fleet had caught  an estimated haul of fish worth Rs. 2 billion, which had not been accounted for.  But the investigations are slow or  forgotten if they concern the comedians of the Yahapala Nadagama.
appointing Governor of Central Bank Arjuna Mahendran
The biggest Bank fraud of Sri Lanka took place immediately after the Yahapalanaya Nadagma started its theatrical performance
The Sri Lanka BRIEF reported,
 “ The entire business community was shocked with the blatant abuse of power of the Central Bank Governor Arjuna Mahendren to help his infamous son in law Arjun Aloysius, known for his infamous EPF deals with the previous government, resulting in the fund losing over 2 billion Rupees. To date the government has not investigated a single transaction and it will never happen under the current regime. …………………..CB governor’s son in law were involved in the previous regime’s EPF dealings amounting to Billions as well, no action has been taken so far against his company Perpetual ltd. Now he has taken it to another level because he has the support of his Governor Father in law and the Prime Minister whom he refers to Uncle Ranil in conversations.” 
No body neither Arjun Mahendran nor his son-in-law Arjun Aloysius has been taken for questioning by the FCID on the Central Bank Bond Scam issue.
But in the case of Yoshitha Rajapakse it was different, FCID was very prompt in taking Yoshitha into custody without any  valid reason; only a story of  money laundering. The importance of taking Yoshitha into custody  is because the Independence day is  3 days away and Yoshitha Rajapakse is a price catch, before  President Sirisena –Mahadenamutta takes the salute of the march past on the Independence Day. 
And Prince Zeid Ra’ad AL-Hussein  of hybrid Court fame will be in town on the 5th February, and  Ranil- Polbe Muna  can tell the Prince, that Rajapakse Family has been brought to books.   But when it comes to actors of the Yahapalanaya Nadagama  their cases can wait. 
In an interview to Ceylon Today,  Rajitha Senaratne –Puwak Badilla answering a question by Anura Bandara Rajaguru:   A complaint has been filed against you in the Bribery and Corruption Commission. What is your response to the demand for your resignation? Rajitha Senaratne – the Puwak Badilla says:
“In that case, the best way to get somebody to resign is to complain to a Commission somewhere. Complaining is not sufficient. The case must be proved. I have no reasons to resign. We are leading a massive struggle against bribery and corruption.”

When it concerns the actors of the Yahapalana Nadagama , the FCID looks at the offence differently.  And the Yahapalana Nadagama actors have no fear. FCID is like a trained dog.  It does not bite the handlers.

The Governor of the Central Bank and his Son in Law are drinking  and dining with the Yahapalanay Nadagama crowd.
Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.(St.Mathew)
Mum is the word on the Central Bank Bond Scam amoung  the Yahapalana Nadagama Circle, while they are all out to catch wives of the ministers of former government for having a passport with  a wrong date of birth, or taking the former first lady to record statements, or arrest an  MP because he had two passports.
Ranil –the Polbe Muna,  made a fiery speech in Parliament –which was unparliamentary bashing the Journalists.  He spoke of his being a Buddhist when every one knows that he is a born Christian with an uncle a Bishop- the  Late Bishop Lakshman Wickramasinghe of the  Kurunegala Diocese.  Polbe Muna  demonstrated how he prays  Buddha clapping his hands and said he does not say Rajapaksa saranang gachchami. 
That was Yahapalana Nadagama at its best for his UNP cohorts. Ranil-the Polbe Muna was turning round laughing at his own jokes  pulling up his trousers, not allowing it to fall down , the UNP Ministers around him Kiriella- Kotu Kithaiya-, Ravi Karunanayaka-Rabboda Aiya and  the rest of the lot were  thumping on the tables and clapping hands. Polbe Muna  was acting his part well.
Champika Ranawake –the Indikatu Pencha was in Hiru TV Salakuna .  He says that it was he who did every thing that was beneficial to the country in the previous government.  President Rajapakse had achieved nothing.  It was he who went to Mavil Aru  and asked Mahinda Rajapakse to wage a war against the terrorists. Mahinda Rajapakse wanted to merely give millions of Rupees to Prbhakaran to protect himself and his family.  He was arranging with a LTTE agent to arrange a meeting with Prabhakaran for him to talk peace.  When the Hiru TV  Moderatoer asked him whether  it was really he who did every thing.?  He said, “  that is why I used the  “We”.”
Champika Ranawaka-Indikatu Pencha spoke with so much hatred when he referred to Mahinda Rajapakse one really wondered what Mahinda Rajapakse had done to him.  Champika-the  Indikatu Pencha of the Yahapalana Nadagama says he represent JHU a  party of the followers of Buddhism , if so how can he have so much of hatred in him. About Ekneligoda he said that people responsible for his disappearance should be arrested.  
When the Moderator said that there were reports that  Champika Ranawaka also had a grudge against Ekneligoda for a letter he had published in Sinhala News Paper, Champika was really angry and said how people were trying to destroy him and his children.
Champika Ranawaka awakened to love of his own children and spoke hatefully of the people who  scandalised him publishing a letter to the press, but with regard to arrest of Yoshitha he said that it was Mahinda Rajapakse who had asked for it,  therefore it is normal  that Yoshitha had been arrested.  He- the Indikatu Pencha is really playing the part of a villain in the Yahapalana Nadagama.
Yahapalan Nadagama speaks of maintaining a Unitary Country and vows not to entertain Federalism, but in the same breath allows the National Anthem to be sung in Tamil. A Nation has one National Anthem and that is  in all countries sung in the language of the Majority.
Yahapalana Nadagama  ruins all aspect of Sri Lanka, economic, social, geographic, political and also religious aspect of Sri LankaSri Lanka’s uniqueness is in its  Sinhala Theravada Buddhist culture.  Tamil Culture is amply represented in Tamil Nadu, Muslim culture in all Arab countries, Pakistan, Indonesia etc.
Therefore it is the duty of every Sri Lankan to protect the Theravada Buddhist Culture of Sri Lanka.  The Yahaplanaya Nadagama is now taking on itself the control of the Buddhist monks.  If a Buddhist Kathikawatha has to be legalised, it is normal that it should be done, but what is wrong is the way it has been  proposed.   The three Nikayas of Sri Lanka should have been asked to prepare a Kathikawatha and presented it to the Parliament to put it into a legal format. 

The Theravada Buddhist Kathikawatha should have come from the Buddhist monks to the Parliament and not from Parliament to the Buddhist  monks.
