Mister President be a Buddhist with Loving Kindness and Compassion in heart instead of Anger, Hatred and thoughts of Vengeance.

A President of a Country once elected becomes the President of every one.  He will  not only  be the President of the Party he represents, but also those opposition parties which may have voted against him.  Therefore he cannot be a  friend of some of the people and the enemy of some. Because once he is elected President he becomes the President of every Citizens in the country

Therefore we cannot understand Maithripala Sirisena treating  the former President and his supporters different from those who voted for him and promised their support.  Even if those who voted against Maithripala Sirisena speaks against him and his policies  Maithripala Sirisena has no moral right to take vengeance from them. To love your enemy as you love yourself is a great human quality, a way to get into the hearts of the people.

The President  should be able to accept   criticism, and  remain honourable and equanimous  without reacting to critics.  That would show  the greatness of a man who holds the highest office of the Nation.  This is equanimity(upekkha), which  distinguishes the goodness of the character of a person, from others.

But can we say this  about  Maithripala Sirisena ? No, unfortunately not. 

He is acting like a cheap  village thug, trying his best to use all the power of his office to take  revenge from his enemies.  He even stops the Joint Opposition from holding a separate May day Rally and gets his Judiciary to issue court orders to  stop the use of the ground for their rally.

It is a shame for Maithripala Sirisena to come down  to that low level of a thug using his force to  stop his enemies  from using their rights.  His stopping the conduct of the Joint Opposition rally is anti democratic.  His fear is that the Galle Rally of his will have a lesser attendance, that should not be the reason for him to act like an authoritarian leader without consideration for other people.

He is becoming an adharmistaya ( අධර්මිෂ්ඨයෙක්). The President of Sri Lanka should be  a man of merit ( පින්වතෙක්). Therefore it is the Buddhist monks who should take him  in hand to make of him a  good  Buddhist leader. 

President Maithripala Siriseana is very boastful. He tell the people at meetings his generosity towards his enemies, like providing security to the former  President and providing him with a helicopter to take him to Medamulana after  the election.

He takes pride in the fact how well he is received by the West. He speaks of how the Queen Elizabeth took her gloves off to shake hands with him.  He tell how the Prime Minister of UK  David Cameron came up to the car that took him to 10 Downing Street, and opened its door for him to get down. He tells of him being invited to attend the G7 Summit meeting. 

But he little realises that these are the flattery of Western Suddho to keep Sri Lanka within the Western fold. In reality  it is sure these Western Leaders have a good laugh at his expense dressing him as a man to please ( ගොණාට අන්දනවා). Otherwise what could Maithripala Sirisena contribute to the G7.  He is only the  leader of Sri Lanka, a country which is in the grip of financial bankruptcy.

Even the UNP leader, his Ministers, and  Chandrika flatter him without any great respect or affection. Maithripala Sirisena has served their purpose, and to that extent they speak respectfully of him. The President Sirisena  is weak of mind  not to understand that.

He does not realise that  he will receive  respect and affection of the people by changing his present position  of an angry, vicious, revengeful man taking every opportunity to condemn and assail the former President Mahinda Rajapakse  his family and those who are close to him.

Maithripala Sirisena should accept that Mahinda Rajapakse will remain a popular and a respected man amoung the people of this country. Mahinda Rajapakse’s service to the people cannot be equalled by another leader- past, present and perhaps  in the near future..

As long as the memory of  his elimination of the feared terrorism last,  even if it is not for any other contribution he has made to the country, people will still be grateful to him and show their respect and affection.  That cannot be removed by Maithripala Sirisena or even by any other National leader of Sri Lanka for years to come.

Maithripala Sirisena should stop his anger and vengeance against Mahinda Rajapakse. More he attacks the former President Mahinda Rajapakse, more will President Maithripala Sirisean be hated by the ordinary people of Sri Lanka. It is a fact that a large majority of the Sinhala Buddhists did not vote for him, and still refuse to accept him in preference to Mahinda Rajapakse.

Maithripala Sirisena has nothing to fear from  Mahinda Rajapakse or his supporters, as he  will be the President of Sri Lanka for the next four or five years.  Mahinda Rajapakse is now only a Member of the Parliament and will not be a rival to him in any way other than perhaps taking away the affection of the people from him.

President Maithripala Sirisena should cleanse his mind with thoughts of Buddhist kindness (metta) and compassion( karuna) towards his supposed enemies.  If he begins to understand his enemies and  show sympathy, it will reflect back on him, turning his enemies to be his friends.

Therefore, please be advised  Mr. President to stop your meetings to slam  the former President Mahinda Rajapakse , to speak ill of him and ask people not to attend his May Day rally to be held in Kirilepone. 

If Maithripala Sirisena could do that, even if he were to have a lesser number of people attending his May Day Rally in Galle, the people will reflect on Maithripala Sirisena’s goodness and begin to respect and show their affection to him  in return.

Maithripala Sirisena has begun his Nadagama against Mahinda Rajapakse, which has become his Presidential Occupation.

Crowds at Mahinda Rajapakse rally at Hydepark blinds Maithripala Sirisena with rage
and gets his Judiciary to stop Joint Opposition May day rally.  Is this Maithripala Sirisen's Yahapalanaya ? Every right thinking person should defy this  and attend the May Day rally at Kirilepone and boycott  May Day Rally in Galle.
Maithripala Sirisena  re-enacts  his anti Mahinda Rajapakse Nadagama meticulously prepared for  the  17 Ausust, 2015 Parliamentary elections, once again  before the scheduled May Day rallyIn view of this annoying Nadagama,  it is well worth asking how much of a Buddhist Maithripala Sirisena is, not forgetting that he still owes President Mahinda Rajapakse for the Hopper he ate that night before turning traitor to SLFP.
Is  being a Buddhist compatible with turning against his friends for personal gain ? We are not speaking of an  ordinary Buddhist but about a Buddhist who takes the reins of leadership of a Theravada Buddhist Country. However, Sirisena’s actions vis à vis his former political mentor and companion  since taking reins of leadership as President belies his Buddhistness.
In Matugama addressing a gathering President Maithripala Sirisena had said  that the Buddhist philosophy has been instrumental  in molding a righteous society in the country and a moral society could be built based on the Buddhist philosophy.  But it is unfortunate that Maithripala Sirisena had not been molded  either as a  righteous person nor as a moral person in the  sense of Buddhist philosophy.
Maithripala Sirisena lacks ordinary moral principles civilised men and women are expected to follow. One such is  shared secrets , and personal information  amoung friends.  A psychologist says, “We use our friends as sounding boards for the big decisions and the small decisions in our lives. We trust them with our secrets, because we know that they won’t tell a soul.. ” .
But Maithripala Sirisena takes a pleasure in telling unpleasant things, secrets, and confidential information he only knows about his one time friend, Leader of the political party in which he was the General Secretary.  Sirisena lashed at the former President at  a meeting of heads of print and electronic media. Sirisena said  “ their past regime was corrupt  and oppressive and I knew what the Rajapakse clan was planning if they won the election.  Out of sheer fear and contempt  and in the interest of the country , I decided to resign  and join hands with the Common Opposition  for a change  despite having opposed UNP for 48 years.”
What a shameless drivel. The people knows that he is telling blatant lies.  He  never resigned from the Party , but walked away like a thief in the night of the 13th  of November, 2014 after eating hoppers with  his leader Rajapakse whom he unashamedly- like Judas Iscariot down grades and sells to his enemies.
Sirisena was in fact roped in by Chandrika to become the Common Opposition Presidential Candidate not because of his aptness for the office , but because  he is influenceable,  according to Chandrika’s  own statement. Chandrika approached him to declare her intention  as  she knew that Sirisena was depressive  not having been made the Prime Minister. 
If it was so distasteful being with the past corrupt Regime of  Rajapaksa, as he says , why did not he resign before instead of waiting to be called by Chandrika Kumaratunga to be the common Presidential Candidate ?
Now he can tell lies at round tables to open mouthed naïve listeners.  Of course the UNP Ministers and UNP sympathisers like him very much because never would they have been able to form a UNP Government  if  it had  not been for Maithripala Sirisena betraying his political party in which he had been for 48 years  and leaving his friends who had trusted him as the General Secretary of his party.
But in his unprincipled behaviour Maithripala Sirisena  shows to what an extent he is not suitable to be the President of Sri Lanka a predominantly Buddhist country. His motivation  for this degrading behaviour, as we see it, is that he is suffering  from an unfathomable  inferiority complex vis à vis the former President Mahinda RajapakseThe only way he finds to make up that defect is by inventing  and dispensing defamatory information about his former leader.
He shows not only his lack of moral principles, but also his ignorance of the teachings of the Buddha being a  Buddhist of no consequence, who knows next to nothing of the deep philosophy of Buddha Dhamma.
His random  tribute to Buddhism is false as he fails keeping even the five Buddhist precepts , and having no moral principles. He gave into temptation for power, betraying those who had placed their trust in him.  He was not content with his simple situation in life as a Minister and a General Secretary of an important political Party, and threw his  Buddhist philosophy under the table to walk away from his friend in the night of the 13 November,2014, to join his enemies to satisfy his unbridled greed for power.

In what ever situation a person who can stand by a moral code, without giving into temptation  for power respecting the trust his friends had placed on him is a moral person. In that sense Maithripala Sirisena is  not a moral person, therefore he has no right either to speak of righteousness, nor that of  morality.

A man who speaks of Buddhist philosophy may yet sin against the moral codes of Buddhism, but what is unpardonable is  not the  act of treachery against those who had placed their trust in him and go in stealth to join their enemies, but  what is unpardonable is  being  in the enemy camp planning  revenge against those to whom he became a traitor. This is what Maithripala Sirisena is now doing sitting safely and comfortably with his former political enemies against whom he fought political battles along side his former political companions.

But Maithripala Sirisena is a man boiling  with anger, hatred and vengeance. An angry man is not fit to be a President of a Nation. In Anguttara Nikaya it is, said: “ As a log from a pyre, burnt at both ends and fouled in the middle, serves neither for firewood in the village nor for, timber in the forest, so is such a wrathful man.  ”

Srisena from his revengeful conduct against his one time political friends shows that he is not suitable to lead the nation as its President. A man in whatever manner he has been brought to hold the office of the President of Sri Lanka should respect the teachings of the Buddha  he had rightly or falsely followed as a Buddhist to be worthy of being a President of  this predominantly Buddhist nation. In terms of Buddhist philosophy one should love even his enemies. Buddhist teachings expect a very high standard of  universal love, respect and the highest degree of patience .

In Kakacupama Sutta in Majjhima Nikaya, Buddha tells his monks: Suppose some bandits catch one of you and sever his body limb from limb with a two-handed saw, and if he should feel angry thereby even at that moment , he is not a follower of my teaching.

That is what it is to be a follower of the teachings of the Buddha, and people expect their President to be an example at least to some extent of the teachings of the Buddha.

But Maithripala Sirisena is  a sad example of a very bad Buddhist.  We saw during the General election of the 18 August, 2015, how Sirisena went all out to make his former leader Mahinda Rajapakse looses at the election by sending a letter expressive of his anger hatred, which was undoubtedly prepared with a  fear of an election victory for Mahinda Rajapakse.  In that letter he warned Mahinda Rajapakse that even if he were to win the election he will not be appointed the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka.

Sirisena shamelessly abused his Presidential power  by sacking the General Secretaries of  the SLFP and the UPFA  just a few days before the election appointing his own cronies to carry out his vicious plan to oust the former President Mahinda Rajapakse from politics.

Maithripala Sirisena invented lies to make  Mahinda Rajapakse  unpopular. He said that before the Presidential  election  he was frightened for his life, because he was sure that if he lost the presidential elections he and his family would have been six feet underground in an unknown cemetery. Even after election the fear of what Mahinda Rajapakse is capable of doing did not leave his mind.

But Mahinda Rajapakse is far from what Sirisena  insinuates.  Mahinda Rajapakse respects people and he helped not only the people of Sri Lanka but he fought for the people of Palestine. People point to Sarath Fonseka as an example of Mahinda Rajapakse’s vengeance against people.  But Sarath Fonseka’s downfall was of his own making, and there was a reason at the time of the arrest to believe that he had a secret agenda after the terrorist war. It is the same with the White Van culture some speak as if it is the making of Rajapaksas. It was not so and no one has really proved it as a fact.

Sirisena knew that despite his  victory at the  Presidential election, Mahinda Rajapakse remains much more popular than him.  Hence he uses his Presidential powers  primarily to eliminate the good image of the former President Mahinda Rajapakse in the minds of the people. Hence other matters such as countries administration and Ranil Wickramasinghe’s mismanagement of Yahapalanaya take a secondary place in his priorities.

Maithripala Sirisena has no vision or political intelligence to be vigilant about matters that concern the country as a whole and the people.  He seems to be blissfully unaware of the precipice to which his PM Ranil Wickramasinghe and his cronies are pushing Sri Lanka. He is not concerned with the ECTA agreement with India, Hanuman Bridge proposed to be constructed connecting north of Sri Lanka to Tamil Nadu. To date Sirisena has not made a statement  on these important issues. Because his preoccupation is the fear of loosing his popularity to the former President Mahinda Rajapakse whose rise in popularity amoung the ordinary people of Sri Lanka, seems unstoppable.

If Sirisena is a true Buddhist he should not restrict  Buddhist morality to words to fool the people, but should  be genuine in follow the Buddhist precepts every day at every moment to be a true Buddhist leader, without discrimination against religion , communality or nationality. He should also not distinguish between his friends and his enemies. He should accept every one equally his friends.

Being the President of a Buddhist country, there is a high moral code  to follow. After all a President is different from rest of the people and one expects a very high moral conduct from him. If not he should  either submit his resignation, or change his mental attitude .

Venerable K.Piyatissa thera says in an article “ ….. teaching of the Buddha ….includes the reflection: "Others may be harmful, but I shall be harmless, thus should I train myself." We must not forget that the whole spirit of Buddhism is one of pacification. In the calm and placid atmosphere of the Buddha's teaching there is every chance, every possibility, of removing hatred, jealousy and violence from our mind.”

There is  a Buddhist verse in Dhammapada which reads :He abused me, he beat me,he defeated me, he robbed me of my property.  Whosoever harbour such thoughts  will never be able to still their enmity.

Even in  the  Bible St Luke  verse 27 reads: “But I tell you who hear me : Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you..”

About the May day rally, the argument put forward by the SLFP Ministers is that the division of the SLFP will result in the formation of a UNP Government.  But despite a so called National Government,  the SLFP plays a secondary role and it is really a UNP Government in place  with the  UNP Leader Ranil Wickramasinghe as the Prime Minister implementing his own projects that would cause irreparable damage to Sri Lanka and its sovereignty. 

The SLFP Ministers within the Government of Ranil Wickramasinghe   are unable to stop this dangerous march towards disaster.  Therefore a division in the SLFP with  a divided  SLFP one having a May day Rally in Galle and the other in Kirulapone will make no difference. Ranil Wickramasinghe will carry on with his calamitous caravan  whether SLFP “barks”  united or divided.

The ECTA agreement with India, the Hanuman Bridge connecting India and Sri Lanka, the PM  the leader of the UNP has promised sign in June. The first Bond scam was not investigated . The President’s demand to remove the Governor of the Central Bank, has fallen on deaf years. And a second Bond scam had taken place in March this year.

But the SLFP in the Government had been helpless to stop these scandalous affairs taking place.  So why continue with a National government when it is apparent that Sri Lanka is not being governed well in the interest of the country and its people.

Sirisena has not the gumption to be  the leader of the SLFP, because he is not “made” for leadership.  To day as the President of Sri Lanka he plays only a secondary role to Ranil Wickramasinghe his Prime Minister.

That may be one of the reasons why  he has made running down and making false accusations against Rajapaksas his official duty, leaving the running of the Yahapalanaya government to the UNP Prime Minister. Ranil Wickramasinghe  runs the country the way he wants  subordinating it to the West and India, and finally inviting China to provide economic help and start  new projects which would never come from the West or India.

If Maithripala Sirisena is wise he would stop his continuous vengeance against the former President Mahinda Rajapakse.  He should forget the past, and try to be independent taking a Buddhist view, developing compassion and being an indiscriminate benefactor of the people of all religions , nationalities, without  differentiating friends and foes. That is in fact what a President should be.

The present Yahapalanaya government is supported by the separatist Tamils and Muslims and  some of the Sinhala Colombians, UNP sympathisers, JHU,  JVP and others who had  failed to get benefits from the previous Government, and  hope to be seen in a good light by the Yahapalanaya leadership hoping that they will benefit from their support of the President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister  Ranil Wickramasinghe. 

But  a larger number of ordinary people remains with Mahinda Rajapakse and if Maithripala Siriseana would not change the  Mahinda Rajapakse’s popularity will increase.

Yahapalanaya the Greatest Hoax played on the people of Sri Lanka.

One does not know where Sri Lanka is or which way it is going.  Since 1948 we had as national leaders, D.S.Senananayake, S.W.R.D.Bandaranaike, Sirimavo Bandaranayaike J.R.Jayawardhana, R.Premadasa, Chandrika Kumaratunga and Mahinda Rajapakse. What ever defects some of them had they proved to be national leaders of distinction.

S.W.R.D.Bandaranayake, Sirmavo Bandaranaike  were exceptionally great leaders and the last Mahinda Rajapakse greatest of all comparatively amoung the ancient Kings like King Dutugamunu. Mahinda Rajapakse was the great leader of the Nation who  eliminated terrorism, brought peace to Sri Lanka and  united it under one flag.

Maithripala Sirisena is the worst we ever had as a President and the  most disastrous at that, who cannot even be called a National Leader. 

There are some who will disagree specially the  sympathisers  of the UNP, the political party which failed from the inception to take Sri Lanka along the correct path to progress,   give the culture of Sri Lanka its rightful place, assure communal unity and  recognise the universal value of Buddhism. Today with Maithripala Sirisena  at the helm UNP  has begun its ruinous activities against  the Sovereign state of Sri Lanka.

Maithripala Sirisena the President by accident has no ambition of his own for the the development of Sri Lanka . Maithripala Sirisena is only helping UNP to allow Ranil Wickramasinghe another  political leader  of doubtful patriotism to launch his old political plans for Sri Lanka which he prepared in 2002 to make Sri lanka a sub-state of America.

Ranil Wickramasinghe with Chandrika as the Agents of the West are under obligation to the West to revive LTTE to fulfil its  terrorists creators ambition of a separate State in the  North and East, which the former President Mahinda Rajapakse so painfully prevented with the sacrifice of  thousands of  Sinhala Buddhist Youth.

That great victory over  terrorism and the Western plan to break up Sri Lanka by the former President Mahinda Rajapakse , have now been converted to  a victory for the  LTTE rump the TNA and the Tamil Diaspora to  make the dream of  the terrorist Prabhakaran a reality by  setting up a Tamil Eelam in the North and East for which the Tamil racist Wigneswaran is going all out.   No wise government would have at the present chaotic state dreamt of writing a new Constitution to Sri Lanka. But Yahaplanaya has undertaken it to fool the people and satisfy the West.

Maithripala Sirisena incapable of taking any decision,  depending on Ranil Wickramasinghe and a SLFP on the verge of  collapse, has taken to trumpet blowing due to  his mental emptiness of an intelligent progressive plan for Sri Lanka.  He is gone completely paranoic and stands neither with the UNP or the collapsing SLFP and still barks about vengeance against the former President Mahinda Rajapakse.

Maithripala Sirisena like Kumba Karna is in a long sleep and in that sleep  he dreams, unaware of what is going on in Sri Lanka

When Sirisena finally wakes up from his long sleep, Ranil and  his UNP goons with the help of the SLFP self minding “bath gottas” would have signed the ECTA with India , the Hanuman Bridge would have been built  with a railway line from Talaimannar to Tricomalee connecting Dhanuskodi in India to Trincomalee in Sri Lanka, a new Sri Lanka Constitution supporting Federalism would have been passed, and the North and East of Sri Lanka merged in to a Federal State.

Maithripla Sirisena will wakeup to a Sri Lanka which may be the  37th State of India. Sirisena without enough intelligence to understand  political manoeuvrings of India with the help of Ranil Wickramasinge and his UNP gang still unaware of what has taken place will want Rajapakses hunted.  What a President the people of Sri Lanka elected for a change.

Maithripala Sirisena has really changed Sri Lanka to a subordinate State of India ?   It is all happening without his knowledge.  He wakes up from time to time and says that he does not know the decisions taken by the government. What does he do  at the Cabinet Meetings  ? Is he  day dreaming about how to make Mahinda Rajapakse unpopular ? 

He recently said that he left the previous government because the President Mahinda Rajapakse had opposed his suggestion to sack a suspected killer from the SLFP.  This Kumbha Karna  dreams all the time  and is unaware of the reality of Ranil Wickramasinghe and his UNP coteries selling Sri Lanka to the West.

Sirisena’s real reason to leave the previous government was his greed for power, to become the President of Sri Lanka if possible, which he would never been under normal circumstances. He denies that he did not leave  President Mahinda Rajapakse’s government because he was denied the office of Prime Minister.

He brags and blows his own trumpet to show that he is capable of taking decisions on his own without having to depend on Ranil Wickramasoingke, Chandrika and Champika. Mangala who is running to USA to meet John Kerry for instructions does not seem to much care consulting  Maithripala Sirisena about important matters.  That is how he sponsored the American resolution against Sri Lanka itself at the Geneva Human Rights Council.

Maithripala Sirisena brags that he created a government together with the UNP to defeat the system which was not suitable to the country. His lopsided political philosophy is  laughable.  He does not even realise the foolishness of his statement which he makes at the 60th anniversary of the peoples’ victory of 1956. 

SWRD Bandaranaike who was the “father” of SLFP left UNP in 1951 because he found the  existing system unsuitable to Sri Lanka and what Maithripala Sirisena does not seem to understand is that he did the exact opposite of what SWRD did taking SLFP back to UNP. 

One of the mistakes of the former President of the SLFP Mahinda Rajapakse was to give the Presidency of SLFP to Sirisena, who has no idea of different political systems. Mahinda Rajapakse may of course have had his reasons for that.

Maithripala Sirisena says, “ Though some people are accusing me stating that I created a government together with the UNP by defeating the SLFP, what I did was to defeat the system which is not suitable to the country by bring in a new system ” 

This man Maithripla Sirisena  in reality  created nothing. Even he was “created” President by Chandrika,Ranil , and Madoluwawe Sobhitha thero. 

Maithripala Sirisena created only chaos in Sri Lanka, by electing Sampanthan as the Opposition Leader, removing the military camps in the North, distributing land that had been occupied by the Army to the Tamils, taking vengeance from Mahinda Rajapakse and his family.   
Maithripala Sirisena  has done absolutely nothing for the Country or our Buddhist Culture ever since his election as the President of Sri Lanka, other than executing his sinister  plans to keep Mahinda Rajapakse out of politics.
Sirisena makes another false statement at the same 60th Anniversary of the people’s victory of 1956. He says that;  “ It was the former President Mahinda Rajapaksa who came to agreements with the UNP, much before I established a unity government together with the UNP”. Then he goes on to say, “….. when the agreement between the former president and the UNP was not successful, Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa built a government by taking 27 UNP leaders to the government, giving them ministries ”.
This is a lie ,  with the  aim to discredit the President Mahinda Rajapakse. The 27 members of the UNP led by Karu Jayasuriya during the height of the military operations against the terrorists,  joined the  President Mahinda Rajapakse to support him in his war effort. The UNP leaders at the time along with  Ranil Wickramasinghe himself, Laksman Kiriella, Ravi Karunanayake etc., were ridiculing the Sri Lanka Army Commander and the Armed Forces taking for granted that the Armed Forces were fighting an unwinnable battle against the “invincible” terrorists.
President Mahinda Rajapakse never spoke critically of the UNP or its leader. He was  in fact in very good terms with Ranil Wickramasinghe.  That speaks a lot about  President Mahinda Rajapakse’s tolerance of even his opponents, and his ability to have cordial relations with them. That is what separates Mahinda Rajapakse from the likes of Ranil, Chandrika and Maithripala Sirisena. They cannot hold a candle to Mahinda Rajapakse.
Maithripala Sirisena  talks , and that is all he had been doing since 9th January,2015, while Ranil, Chandrika and Mangala Samaraweera have together taken Sri Lanka as a pawn on to the Western political checker board. 
Sirisena shamelessly says, that “As the politicians belong to the 1956 era, we give the prominence to the country and the people. I will be committed to protect the SLFP by strengthening it according to the philosophy of Sir S. W. R. D. Bandaranaike”. 
But in reality Sirisena has thrown the political philosophy of S.W.R.D Bandaranaike into a political cesspit becoming  a party to the new political plan designed by  Ranil Wickramasinghe, Chandrika and John Kerry.
They say that a man could be measured from the friends he has.  So is a country.  Sri Lanka the independent sovereign State that it was has become today a failed state  desperately attached to USA, India, and the European Union for its existence.  Having failed to get a dime  from the West it was depending on for the development of Sri Lanka without China, has now turned to China.
China which the Yahapalanaya condemned  for its alignment with Sri Lanka under President Mahinda Rajapakse, and spoke slanderously of  China breeding Chinese children in Sri Lanka is now  being invited to come to its help.  Ranil Wickramasinghe and  the UNP Ministers now sing hosannas for China.
Maithripala Sirisena with those who  “created of him” a President,  is today putting the blame on the former President Mahinda Rajapakse for all mistakes they made since 9 January,2015. A country which was peacefully  and progressively marching as an independent Sovereign State towards development, has been turned into a failed State by the Yahapalanaya Government led by President Maithripala Sirisena. The Yahapalanaya houx has been accomplished, but it assures  its existence on the extent to which they could continue to blame the former President Mahinda Rajapakse.
Paradoxically, the former President Mahinda Rajapakse has become the saviour of  these Yahaplanaya fraudsters.

Was Jesus a Buddhist Monk

Sarath Fonseka–Yahapalanaya hitman.

Every one who voted this disastrous government calling itself  the Yahapalanaya into power may now be regretting,  except  of course the Tamils, Muslims the Civil Society  Organisations bought over by the government and those who exist as ministers , administrators  in some way connected in supporting  this ambiguous Yahapalanaya Government.

Its calamitous existence is complete with its latest recruit as a most unlikely Minister Sarath Fonseka.  He has been recruited  to carry out ani-Rajapakse hate speeches in Parliament in the presence of the former  President Mahinda Rajapakse who is a Parliamentarian.   Sarath Fonseka is a scandalous appointment, a man  having no intelligence to make an acceptable  political speech in the Parliament. He and his Party were unceremoniously  rejected by the people at the General election of the 17 August.

Back in Sri Lanka travelling to Jaffna in a bus I met a young man. He was  tall,  strong  and handsome wearing  army fatigue carrying a heavy back pack . He sat by my side . I spoke to him.  He was a Soldier returning to Camp after  leave. I asked him about the war .  He said that he had fought face to face with the terrorists.  He was in Army Commander Sarath Fonseka’s platoon. 

He spoke to me about the Army Commander Sarath Fonseka with fascination.  He told me how he gave precise instructions,  and planned strategies, the formation in which the platoon should proceed , what precautions to take when they  feel the presence of the enemy.  He said he was a good Commander a good military man, but he said  out side his Army role he was a bad man  very cruel and too strict with those who worked for him outside Army duties.

He told me how Foneka had ordered his  cook to prepare milk rice and a good “lunu Miris”, but when he came to the table for his breakfast  he  found the “lunu miris” not to his liking.  He had called the cook and  when he came Fonseka  had taken   dish full of “lunu Miris” and rubbed it on  the cooks face.  The poor man had run out screaming.  He said that he had heard even to his family he sets  unimaginable punishments.  He said  that he had heard,  that he punished his wife by  making her kneel down on the floor until he orders her to get up.

From the way he speaks in the Parliament disparaging the former President Mahinda Rajapakse  who made a hero of him.,  there is the possibility of these anecdotes of his cruelty  not  untrue.

There are many who try to take credit for the elimination of terrorism, even Athureliya Ratana Thero minimises the role played by the former President Mahinda Rajapakse in the elimination of  terrorism, he says that it was he  who was responsible  for the  end of terrorism in Sri Lanka

Sarath Fonseka who brags that elimination of terrorism is his work does not say why he could not have eliminated terrorism before  Mahinda Rajapakse was elected President,  Sarath Fonseka was in the Armed Forces  long before Mahinda Rajapakse was elected President.

Sarath Fonseka  made a  venomous maiden speech as a new member of the Parliament salivating poison to  attack the former President Mahinda Rajapakse,  ranting the most stupid speech you could  ever  expect as a maiden speech of a new Parliamentarian. It is like the speech of a street ruffian paid to insult an opponent. Did Ranil Wickramasinghe appoint him a Minister for that very purpose ?

The former President Mahinda Rajapakse against whom Sarath Fonseka salivated  remains a knight in a shining silver armour untouched by putrid venom spat by the worst  kind of scum in today’s Parliament.  Of course the UNP Yahapalanaya Ministers were happy and clapped and encouraged  Sarath Fonseka to spit more venom.

It was during the Presidential election of 2010, that he demanded his opponents meaning Gotabhaya and Mahinda Rajapakse to prepare floor mats to lie on the Bogambara prison floor. He spilled in his  hate speeches drab uncouth  words of his limited vocabulary to please the  unrefined  fans. His speeches were a disgusting show of shamelessness, calling  by  names of  animals every one he disliked .  The  strange speeches he made during his political campaign showed his dislike for others, and  his inappropriateness to be a politician.      

Sarath Fonseka wanted to be a Pinochet sort of a President in Sri Lanka. It was a great fortune of Sri Lanka that Sarath Fonseka was defeated at the Presidential election of 2010. He was crying out from roof tops that he was defeated because of a computer jilmart.  Sixyears after  at the August, 2015 General elections  Sarath Fonseka and his Political Party was  rejected by the people. 

They  managed to get only 28000 votes  in  the whole Island. People do not care any more for what he had been during the terrorist military operations, People detest his ego centricity in trying to get the credit for wining the war against terrorism for himself. Field Marshal means nothing to the people of Sri Lanka. Those badges and insignias are not what people respect. They respect a man for his human qualities. 

It is not money, past heroic deeds, or  presidential support that matter for people to like  a parliamentarian. The words a person uses are important measurements of his quality.  People judge individuals from what he says. Sarath Fonseka  is no more a person  liked by the people for his part in terrorist war.  Now it is forgotten,  the people see him in Parliament  without his uniform in a  new role  in which  he is a square peg in a round hole.

But his uncontrolled  words of hatred he dribbles  out in parliament against a very much loved  former President Mahinda Rajapakse have  made him an object of hatred of the people.  He should see around and learn lessons. Donald Trump a rich businessman who  began his USA Presidential campaign as a likely Republican Candidate to be the next President,  is  beginning to be loosing his place in the campaign because of  his uncontrolled use of words.

Sarath Fonseka is an extremely ambitious man.  He may perhaps have contemplated  a military take over of the government. What he was planning to do immediately after the end of the terrorist war  remains  an enigma.  It has been said that he wanted to recruit more soldiers and purchase more  arms and ammunitions when the terrorist war was over.

It had been said that he had summoned  retired army officers who were his close associates and accommodated them in  hotel rooms he had reserved in Colombo. It was after investigation of these  that it is said that the army had got the police to arrest him.  
Therefore, it appears that  there had been some secret illegal activities that had required the arrest of Sarath Fonseka, his imprisonment and subsequent legal actions being taken against him. There may have been a secret preparation for a military coup.  Therefore, those who blame the former President Mahinda Rajapakse as responsible for the imprisonment of Sarath Fonseka , should consider whether  there had been other valid reasons for that unfortunate incident.

The then President Mahinda Rajapakse was a kind man, he may not have wanted to make a public issue of Sarath Fonseka’s plans.  He may have instead let legal action follow any revelations of doubtful activities of the Army Commander.  Even Sarath Fonseka’s  son-in –law had been  some how connected with the army, in whatever was his business activities.

There was also a talk of a cache of   bundles of new dollar notes found in the cupboard of a member of his family.   There was then no FCID like that of Ranil Wickramasinghe to make investigations public, even before accusations are made.  Therefore, one has to take these into consideration to understand why Sarath Fonseka  is now using all his energy in the character assassination of Mahinda Rajapakse and Gotabhaya Rajapakse. Was it because of a failed attempt of a military coup ?

It was Rajapakse’s  who made a great hero of him, and he was grateful and gave interviews praising both the President Mahinda Rajapakse and Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapakse.  

To-day he is sitting with the people who ridiculed his role as the Commander of the Sri Lanka Armed Forces. Lakshaman Kiriella said any donkey can fight a war, Ravi Karunanayake  said he was not fit to be even in the Salvation Army, Ranil Wickramasinghe said there were no terrorists in Toppiagala etc. These very same people  have now  given Sarath Fonseka a  new uniform, medals and a hat calling him a Field Marshal. 

We see the UNP Parliamentarians hanging onto every word of Sarath Fonseka clapping and encouraging him, in his mudslinging speeches in Parliament.  Sarath Fonseka is unable to make an intelligent political speech, therefore every speech of his in Parliament would be  a verbal attack against Rajapakses, the only subject he seems to know.

Today Field Marshal Sarath Foseka  has become a propaganda officer  for Yahapalanaya and mudslinger at the former President Mahinda Rajapakse, which has become his full time job. In this he joins the rest of theYahapalanaya  UNP crowd led by  Maithripala Sirisena and Ranil Wickramasinghe.

Sarath Fonseka is the Yahapalanaya Minister of  UNP Smear Campaign against Mahinda Rajapakse, Slander, Denigration , Defamation  and Calumny.
