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.
Sri Lanka travelling to 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. Jaffna
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
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
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
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 .
Those badges and insignias are not what people respect. They respect a man for
his human qualities. Sri Lanka
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
. It was after
investigation of these that it is said
that the army had got the police to arrest him. Colombo
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.
