We have to Stop Yahapalanaya Government writing a New Constitution to Sri Lanka to please the "four evils"

Yahapalanaya is an empty boast the reality is evident
The  so called Yahapalanaya government which had been deceiving the people of this country ever since Maithripala Sirisena was elected President of Sri Lanka on the 8th January,2015, has no right what so ever to present a note, a paper or  a draft to the Parliament as a preliminary to the writing of  a new Constitution for Sri Lanka.

Today the people of Sri Lanka are divided as they had never been before. The Tamil terrorists have been eliminated but they have reappeared in another form-“Wigneswaran, TNA and the Tamil Diaspora, and the Western Governments assisting them”-the four evils , to be an important supportive group of the Sirisena Ranil- Yahapalanaya Government to dissolve the Sri Lankan identity.

This Sirisena Ranil government will do any thing , make any sacrifice to retain the support of the “four evils”. The JVP  has become a party to the Yahapalanaya Government’s shameless plan  to change Sri Lanka behind scene into a Federal State according to the desire of the “four  evils”.

Hence to allow the Sirisena Ranil government under these circumstances to write a new Constitution is to make Sri Lanka  a “sacrificial lamb” of this Yahapalanaya Government on the altar of reconciliation to satisfy the Tamils of the TNA, the ultra Tamil Wigneswaran ,  the Tamil diaspora and their supporters the West-“the four evils”

Therefore under no circumstance should the patriots of this great country of the Sinhala Buddhists of Sri Lanka allow this  pseudo Yahapalanaya Government of Sirisena –Ranil to write a new Constitution for Sri Lanka. Kiriella a UNP Minister of this government says that they would give 13 plus and abolish the executive Presidency.

They are manipulating to take away the executive powers from the President to transfer them to the Prime Minister.

The Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe is a stooge of the West and the West wants him to usurp the powers of the President so that they can do what they want with Sri Lanka. In order to keep the President quiet and believe that the West is friendly towards him, the Western Governments even go to the extent of  proposing Maithripala Sirisena for the Nobel Peace Prize.

What has Maithripala Sirisena given to Sri Lanka and to  its people, and to the world  that makes him deserve the Noble Peace Prize ?  

Does  not this suggestion of the west shows their utter hypocrisy to fool the leaders of developing countries to make them subordinate to their pseudo-generosity ?  Or is it for having made things easy for the West led by  USA, by sponsoring their resolution at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, with the support of the UN Human Rights Commissioner condemning the  Sri Lanka Armed Forces that eliminated terrorism for war crimes and establish hybrid courts,  to give back to the Tamils what they  failed to obtain through terrorism ?
Maithripala Sirisena as President of a most unpatriotic government since Independence calling itself Yahapalanaya,  does need a Noble Peace Prize as no government any where in the world has supported  the West led by USA to make a devastating  resolution against its own country, and its own Armed Forces, condemning the country’s legal system and suggesting setting up hybrid courts to try its own  Armed Forces for war crimes.

These UNP yes men to Ranil Wickramasinghe- their leader, even two years after they have taken over the government of Sri Lanka from its visionary leader Mahinda Rajapakse, still use the name of the  President Mahinda Rajapakse to cover up their own sins, and make people believe that they are following  what Mahinda Rajapakse failed to do.  

Minister Kiriella says that the new Constitution may grant 13plus as proposed by Mahinda Rajapakse. They have only the name of President Mahinda Rajapakse to save their skins, but they know that  they  can never get any where near President Mahinda Rajapakse who had the  ability to change a Sri Lanka that was suffering for thirty years under terrorism to  a peaceful secure country with the communities united as Sri Lankans.

The uniqueness of this Yahapalanaya Government is that it has openly allowed corruption and thefts in the Central Bank itself and in the construction of the Central Highway, and though number of its Ministers though accused for bribery, corruption and theft have not been summoned by courts and punishments meted out though the President Mahinda Rajapakse, his kith and kin , Ministers of his Government, and all connected to him continue to be summoned by the  courts and remanded at their pleasure.

The Yahapalanaya Government  swears that the new Constitution has not been written as yet but only the proposals by the five Committees have been presented to the parliament. But the proposals do not give any assurance that they will finally be able to write an acceptable non-federal Constitution.

This government does every thing in stealth hiding facts not only from the people but also from the President Maithripala Sirisena blissfully ignorant of what is going on behind his back.

Even the Supreme Court of the Land is bluffed, changing its verdicts through Parliamentary Bills, and persuading even the JVP to vote with the government to provide a two third majority.

There is no reason why this Sirisena Ranil Yahapalana government should at all write a new Constitution when the 1978 Constitution is an acceptable document which had served its purpose during the most critical period of the recent history of Sri Lanka. Any required Constitutional changes could  easily be made by Constitutional amendments. 

It has become evident that if this Yayapalanaya traitors  would get down to write a new Constitution we will not only loose the unitary status of Sri Lanka but it may also loose its name from Sri Lanka to “OrumiththaNaadu”.

Sinhala Language has  already lost its significant place under Yahapalanaya Regime. These writers of a new Constitution have failed to find an appropriate word in Sinhala to mean “unitary” hence they have used this Tamil word “Orumiththa Nadu” in the Sinhala text of the Constitution, as well as in the English text to the exclusion of the English word Unitary.

There may have  been a reason why the President Mahinda Rajapakse did not remove the 13Amendment. However it has to be removed from the Constitution and retain the executive powers of the President intact. We are still not completely  out of terrorism which may raise its ugly head sooner or later if we let the  Yahapalanaya continue to rule Sri Lanka.

The Present Yahapalanaya government does not take any thing seriously. As they have mismanaged the economy of Sri Lanka they without accepting their disastrous bungling since their taking over the Government of Sri Lanka on the 8th January,2015, act like a “bull in a glass shop” taking haphazard decisions  to  “patch up” their wrong doings.

 As the Sirisena –Ranil government is now in very critical financial straights, they have begun selling Sri Lanka’s most valued “treasures” such as the unique natural harbour at Trincomalee, 15 thousand acres of prime land  in the South , Mattala Airport , Lankan Air Lines,  and part of the Colombo harbour etc.

The UNP Ministers and now some of the SLFP seniors like Mahinda Samarasinghe, Sarath Amunugama  are bragging that they have done what President Mahinda Rajapakse failed to do, which was to bring Sri Lanka into the fold of the West. But what have they received from their new found friends of the West. Their Western friends  have still not taken up even a single major development project. But they are nevertheless profiting from Sri Lanka’s dive into disaster. It was the same that the West did with the misfortunes of Greece. It is Germany and France that gained from the misfortunes of Greece.

Ranil Wickramasinghe with his Mount Pelerin connection hoped that America would have come to his aid, and even began by insulting China to give the West the signal that he was on their side against China.

But America and the West treated him  just like they treated his uncle J.R.Jayawardana-nicknamed Yankee Dikee, who expected  America and the West –to be his safety net against Indian brutality.

USA and the West will pay glowing tributes to Yahapalanaya for regaining democratic Sri Lanka, and reconciliation with the minorities and taking the Armed Forces before a hybrid court to be tried for war crimes which they believe Sri Lanka Armed Forces  committed in eliminating terrorists. That is all that the Yahapalanaya government will get from the Western friends.

CFA which enabled the terrorists to kill thousands of soldiers and innocent civilians was entered into with the terrorist leader Prabhakaran by PM Ranil Wickramasinghe with the aid of the Norvegian mediator Eric Solheim.  Ranil Wickramasinghe  neither consulted the then President Chandrika Kumaratunga nor the Parliament before he entered into that disastrous CFA.

How can then the people of Sri Lanka trust Ranil Wickramasinghe as the Prime Minister to write a new Constitution which would not finally be in effect  a Federal Constitution ?

What guarantee do the people have that Ranil Wickramasinghe will not be a traitor once again as he did with the CFA ?

The Yahapalanaya Government has no sense of values. They want to make Sri Lanka a Singapore. They want to sacrifice  Buddhism and Sinhala culture for an imagined reconciliation with the Tamils and the Muslims. They of the Yahapalanaya Government ,do not understand that there could never be a real reconciliation with the Tamils unless they give up  their call for  a separate territory for the Tamils and agree to live with all Communities.

Though the Yahapalanaya Government asserts that in the new Constitution nothing would be changed viz à viz the primary place given to Buddhism as in the previous Constitutions,  when in the new draft of the Constitution it is said that Buddhism will be given its rightful place and adds that the other religions will also have an equal place.

The President may be able to fool the Mahanayake Theros with a promise of special place to Buddhism and  the protection it deserves, but the people cannot be fooled by the reality of what is being done behind their backs.

The reconciliation with the Tamils is a farce since the defeat of terrorists. It is not the Sinhala that should move towards Tamils,  but it is the Tamils who should  come to the Sinhala to assure their sincerity to reconcile with the Communities. As it is the Yahapalanaya exercise  of reconciliation is a complete handover of North and East to Tamils with even the right to decide how they are to govern themselves without the interference of the Central Government.

There is no necessity to write a new Constitution to Sri Lanka. The Present  Constitution of Sri Lanka should  continue retaining all  the elements of the first Constitution prepared by the British when they granted Independence to Sri Lanka. Any Country’s Constitution is written by the Majority Community safeguarding its religious and cultural identity . 

It is more so with regard to Sri Lanka with its unique 2600 year old Buddhist tradition and Buddhist Culture  which is the identity itself  of Sri Lanka.

In no country has the minorities of the Country consulted in the writing of  a Constitution. But the Majority Community allows the minorities the right to religious worship and maintain their cultural identities,  allowing them to enjoy all the rights and priviledges of the  majority community, without discrimination. 

It is for the minorities to accept the Constitution as theirs, as they are accepted as the people of this country.

The Constitution protects the territoriality of Sri Lanka, therefore the Muslims should not be allowed to clear forests and open unauthorised Muslim settlements where ever they want. And the Tamils should not be allowed to  attack  Buddhist Temples  or destroy Buddhist Statues anywhere in the Island, nor allow them to chase away the Sinhala from occupying their lands and property any where in the Island be in the North, East, South or the West.
