When he was elected President, he inherited
in the grip of a group of ruthless
Tamil terrorists. He had to deal with a very unfriendly Western Countries
ferociously opposed to independent development of third world countries outside
Western influence. The western media called him a hawkish politician.
On the contrary Mahinda Rajapakse is a humanist and a fighter for human rights,
believed in independent Sovereign rights
of developing nations. Sri
He knew that the West does not take kindly to national leaders who want to develop their countries independent of Western domination. The glaring instances of this Western prejudice are
Chili, . Therefore he had to be
cautious even in dealing with terrorism that was festering the countries
progressive growth. Guatamala Congo etc
He had to settle terrorism first. He therefore tried to contact the terrorists for a peaceful settlement of their problems adhering to Western democratic norms. But as Tamil terrorists did not want any peaceful settlement but were determined to have their way to divide
by force, Mahind Rajapakse decided to
deal with them the way they wanted it- using the Armed Forces for a military
Though the odds were against a military intervention to eliminate terrorism, he decided to use the Armed forces for a military solution against the advice of America and the West, who were acting in favour of the Tamils settled in large numbers in their countries-the Tamil diaspora the principal financial contributors to maintain a strong and a well armed terrorist force in Sri Lanka.
Mahinda Rajapkse a determined leader knew that the correct way to bring about peace and develop the country at the same time was to plan a strategy of development and act accordingly without changing it to suit what ever interfering foreign forces. That was how Mahinda Rajapkse a great leader who brought peace to
was able to developed the country modernising
it in a short time, as no one ever thought it was possible. Sri Lanka
However, Mahinda Rajapakse wanted a little more time to maintain the momentum of development to bring
in par with developed
Nations of the world. In that he miscalculated
his chances of success, and decided to call for an early Presidential
elections. He believed that the
satisfied people who were already enjoying a higher standard of living thanks
to the changes he had been able to bring about
despite a higher cost of living
due to market exigencies, would re-elect him for another term. Sri Lanka
Unfortunately, the people decided otherwise. The Tamils and Muslims stood together against the Sinhala Buddhists to tip the scale against Mahinda Rajapakse. Mahind Rajapakse lost the Presidential election and with it the Sinhala Buddhists lost a rare leader that made them proud to be Sri Lankans.
Mahinda Rajapakse was undoubtedly a great leader of rare qualities who followed the path traced by his erstwhile elder S.W.R.D.Bandranaike. He was respectful of the thoughts of Anagarika Dharmapala and gave an impetus to Buddhism turning his official residence every full –moon day to a centre for the emanation of the discourses of the Buddha by eminent Buddhist Monks. Some affectionately speak of him as a reincarnation of King Dutugamunu.
But what have we got in place of the great leader the President Mahinda Rajapakse ?
We have got Maithripala Sirisena a most ungrateful man of this century, a great betrayer of
? Maithripala Sirisena inspires nothing.
He is a political pawn in the hand of a cunning and ambitious man Ranil
Wickramasinghe the leader of the UNP- the party against which SWRD Bandaranaike
organised the SLFP. Sri Lanka
Maithripala Sirisena distorts SLFP with a politically inexperienced Duminda Dissanayake as its General Secretary, insulting the memory of the late SWRD Bandaranaike the father of the SLFP.
Maithripala Sirisena is so weak that he had to consent to let Ranil Wickrmsinghe swear in un-Constitutionally as Prime Minister , when there was already a Prime Minister D.M. Jayaratne of the former government, which had not been dissolved. Maithripala Sirisena on the instruction of Ranil Wickramasinghe and Chandrika Kumaratunga promised to have a national government of SLFP and UNP.
But the resulting national government led by Ranil Wickrmasinghe is a strong UNP Government with the Finance Minister from the UNP and a man obedient to Ranil Wickramasinghe the Speaker of the Parliament. He allowed a Tamil politician who was brought in to form the TNA by the terrorist leader Prabhakaran as the Leader of the Opposition.
That appointment of Sampanthan as the leaer of the Opposition was also un- Constitutional, but the Speaker Karu Jayasuriya an obedient coterie of Rani Wickrmasinghe , followed his masters instructions, and refused to accept the leader proposed by the Joint Opposition. That is their respect for democracy.
Maithripala Sirisena will go down history as the traitor of the Sinhala Nation who helped the local enemies of Sri Lanka,-Ranil, Chandrika , and Muslims to sell the nation to the Tamil separatists,
and the West. India
Maithripala Sirisena was in the SLFP long enough to have known that Ranil Wickramasinghe and Chandrika Kumaratunga were the local agents of the West. The West was determined to oust Mahinda Rajapakse and his government so that they could replace Mahinda Rajapakse with one of their local agents manoeuvrable by them. But all those mattered less important to Sirisena or his mind is so small that he did not know what was going on.
Sirisena was attracted by the proposal made by Ranil Wickraamasinghe and Chandrika Kumaratunga to be the common Presidential candidate of the opposition to become the President of Sri Lanka. He considered turning traitor to his country, and the political party of which he was the general secretary for 40 odd years was worth it, if he could become he President of Sri Lanka..
But now Sirisena speaks shamelessly ill of his former political leader Mahinda Rajapakse relating difficult times he had with him, and his fear that he would have been buried in an unknown cemetery if he had lost the Presidential election, to justify his quitting the party and an uncomparable political leader- Mahinda Rajapakse, who changed Sri Lanka to a modern country hoping to gradually turning it out to be a country not second to any other country in the West.
Perhaps Sirisena was not aware to what extent Ranil and Chandrika were cunning to make use of him to come to political power themselves and make him their puppet once he was elected as the President. It is now quite evident that
is not run by Maithripala
Sirisena as its President but by Ranil Wickramasinghe and Chandrika.
Maithripala is quite satisfied making
speeches visiting foreign countries to meet
foreign leaders, shake their gloved and ungloved hands and be photographed with
them. Sri Lanka
In the meantime the Tamils are having a whale of a time making their political plans and readying themselves to set up their own Tamil Eelam. This situation is similar to that of the terrorist Prabhakaran building his arsenal and the terrorist force after signing a CFA with Ranil Wickramsinghe and participating in the so called peace talks in foreign countries agreed to by the terrorists, supported by the Norwegian Eric Solheim.
While all that is going on in the North, Maithripala Sirisena who is politically naïve has only the desire to wipe the name of Rajapaksas from the name board of Sri Lankan political leaders. Along with Maithripala Sirisena are the other members of SLFP basking in the dim light of Maithripala Siriena’s not so bright political star, enjoying the ministerial bonanzas and all the perks that go with it.
These self seeking SLFPers do not care what may happen to Sri Lanka to morrow which is in the hands of Ranil and his UNP coteries, and not at all in the hands of the traitor Maithripala Sirisena who ha been conveniently parked into a Presidential Palace with his SLFP sprites keeping him happy doing things to please him.
Maithripala Sirisena asks for nothing better. He is happy calling himself the leader of the SLFP, and tell his little sprites that he will not allow Ranil Wickramasinghe and the UNP rule the country, but he with his SLFP sprites will be doing that. But in the meantime knowingly or unknowingly Maithripala Siriseana is only helping UNP to rule the country without even consulting him.
Ranil and the UNP will be writing the new Constitution for
Lanka and sign the agreements with India for the ECTA and to construct the . Maithripla Sirisena cannot say no to Ranil
Wickrmsinghe because it is he who made it possible for him to be the President
Bridge . Sri Lanka
In the meantime the bones of the late Mr.S.W.R.D.Bandaranaike must be rattling in his grave as Maithripala Sirisena has made SLFP a partner of the UNP- the policies of which SWRD opposed and formed the SLFP only as a barrier against UNP taking
away from independence and
SWRD with his SLFP brought to independent
a spirit of national socialism, brining back the cultural and national values
lost under colonialism. He gave a proper place to Sinhala Language , Buddhism
and even the national dress. It was Mahinda Rajapaksa and not his daughter
Chandrika Kumaratunga that stepped into continue SWRD Bandaranaikre’s
progressive policies. Sri Lanka
Today we have a government distinctly opposed to the policies for which SWRD Bandaranaike fought against the UNP and set up his own party the SLFP against UNP.
Maithripala Sirisena nominally the President of the SLFP has subordinated SLFP to UNP . Maithripala Sirisena is in fact promoting UNP to which he is grateful for having made of him a President of Sri Lanka.
Sirisena is being used by Ranil Wickramsingh and Chandrika Kumaratunga calling the government a National Government, but carry out proWestern and pro Indian policies of UNP. The Government of Maithripala Sirisena and Ranil Wickramasinghe has taken a complete U turn making
a colony of the West, dependent on the West. Sri Lanka
What is national about the Maithripala-Ranil-Chandrika government is the National dress worn by Maithripala Sirisena, amoung the UNP Ministers- the Black Sahibs, dressed in very English Coats and trousers.
UNP will do lot of damage to Sri Lanka as they had done before, like the Indo-Lanka pact signed by J.R.Jayawardhan with Rajiv Gandhi of India, CFA signed by Ranil Wickrmasinghe with Prabhakaran- the Tamil terrorist, and arming the terrorists by R.Premadasa.
Maithripala Sirisena will be instructed by Ranil and Chandrika to keep the SLFP Ministers under control, to enable him to sign the ECTA and sign the agreement to construct the
with . Sirisena will obediently send out stricture
to the members of the SLFP to obey Ranil Wickrmasinghe and fall in line as it happened on the No Confidence motion against the
Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake.
Maithripala Sirisena will also obediently re appoint the Governor of
Central Bank for a further period, and ask the SLFP Ministers and some of the obedient UPFA
Parliamentarians not to raise objections. India
This most calamitous situation could be stopped only by the ouster of both the President Maithripala Sirisena and the so called Nationl Government along with Ranil Wickramasinghe and the UNP. If that would not happen then good-bye my unitary
. Sri Lanka
For the people of
to have voted against Mahinda Rajapkse at the Presidential election on the 8th January,2015 was a great betrayal.
The result of it would be that generations to come will suffer, and Sri Lanka
will never be again what it was before the 8th January ry,2015. Sri Lanka
