2017 Will Be Decisive For Sri Lanka

By Mahinda Rajapaksa

Mahinda Rajapaksa

Mahinda Rajapaksa

2017 will be the year in which the future of Sri Lanka will be decided. The government’s devolution package to divide the country into what they call ‘distinct spheres of authority’, the ETCA with India to open up Sri Lanka to Indian service providers and workers, the privatisation of the Hambantota harbour and other government owned assets, are just some of the unwelcome changes that the government has planned in the new year. All this will come on top of the gross economic mismanagement,  declining growth rate, declining foreign reserves, the deteriorating exchange rate, increased taxation, increased interest rates, increasing inflation and a phenomenal increase in the national debt that we have seen over the past two years.

The SLFP members in the government who were elected to parliament on an anti-UNP, anti-government platform, but have since joined the UNP led government, now appear to be engaged in a struggle with their conscience. Uncertain of the correct path to take, they keep vacillating. While condemning Arjuna Mahendran over the bond scam they defend the Prime Minister. They criticise the UNP in public but vote with them on the VAT Bill, the Office of Missing Persons Bill and the Budget. They cooperate with the Joint Opposition to defeat the ‘super minister’ Bill, but at the same time they cooperate with the UNP on the devolution proposals. At this decisive moment, they should be mindful of the future of the country above everything else.

Those who hold portfolios and vote with the government on important matters, are members of the government despite any criticism they may make in public about other political parties and ministers in the government. There are many Ministers and MPs in the SLFP group as well as the UNP who are genuinely perturbed by what the government has been doing.  When the leaders of the Joint Opposition so decide, the doors of the anti-government coalition of forces will be thrown open to all such individuals. The sovereignty and territorial integrity of our motherland and the fate of future generations will hang in the balance in 2017 under this increasingly dysfunctional government. May all citizens of Sri Lanka have the courage and strength to meet the challenges that lie ahead from the first week of January onwards.

    MR can’t even do primary school mathematics! The number of seats of UNP+its associated parties+TNA account for more than half of the parliament. He may be thinking of buying some with his looted money!!!

      How can a man who always thought that UNHRC would execute (billa mawanawa) and that was the reason him to go for early PE election… now come with the kind of predictions for 2017.
      Even if the current men dont boast, they managed it saving the nation from International folks.
      Had Rajaakshe been the leader, things would have reached imposing trade sanctions to this country.
      Prior to 2015, everyone knew, srilanka s Rajaakshes were painted as SECOND Gadafis.
      No countries talked good about Srilanka thanks to Rajapakshe.
      Silly idiot who was fooled by Astrolgers of all low level, was forced tobecome a caricature.
      Anyways, since the current men did not go after revengeful agendas, his bum has been saved.
      Alone taking up the murder case of Thadjudeen, can put this man cornered within 2 days:
      He has so much of allegations levelled at his family.
      So how can this man ever think he would do good to the nation ?

        “How can a man who always thought that UNHRC would execute (billa mawanawa) and that was the reason him to go for early PE election… now come with the kind of predictions for 2017”

        1) Because he would never see it so long Lanken people back him to be NO-WRONG even if their wives, daughters, family ones would have been raped by MR thugs. That is the nature of SRILANKEN majority folks being abused by Wimal WEERAWANSE

        2) People in general are show off – they dont know care about any UNHRC issues, even prior to 8th Jan 2015, they were not afraid of UNHRC.. for them to that time, even if MR woudl have been executed was not a problem – SRILANKEN average – for them no matter even if their lovely ones would have been harmed by anyone… they are just buddhists for name only.

        3) Most of them are literate -but that means no about their IQS: they just follow the other – let abused or fooled by anyone easily. Like the beach boys being preyed to the HIV infected tourists in Hikkaduwa.

        3) This nation – majority folks are easy targets to spread any addicts.. just low level rherotics take ground like viral Nomatter who added them.
        MR has no nothing.. but thuggish nature.
        But masses are blind folded by Hiru and Derana (Marana)

          Sach, there’s no need to find any evidence, just ask Mahinda Rajapakse and his family where they got the money from for the mansions they have bought in Oklahoma USA. Even the properties they own in Sri Lanka have no clear explanation as to where they got the money from. Remember the late Jayalalitha of Kerala was jailed when she could not explain how she amassed her fortune. That is the beauty of Indian justice.

      RE:2017 Will Be Decisive For Sri Lanka

      Yes, 2017 Will Be Decisive Year for Sri Lanka, for the Modayas, Mootals and Fools, in the Land of Native Veddah Aethho occupied by Paras, whose average IQ is 79, and those elected to the Parliament by the Modayas, Mootals and Fools are not much different, who cannot properly add, and some who claim 2/2 =0, as well, but know how to steal and kill well.

      National IQ Scores – Country Rankings

      The intelligence scores came from work carried out earlier this decade by Richard Lynn, a British psychologist, and Tatu Vanhanen, a Finnish political scientist, who analysed IQ studies from 113 countries, and from subsequent work by Jelte Wicherts, a Dutch psychologist.

      Countries are ranked highest to lowest national IQ score.

      MR always thinks that Sinhalese masses are illitarate, fools and can be easily cheated with racist propaganda and lies. The people gave him 12 years of legal right to govern the nation assuming that the nation will become a peaceful place for all but his intention was to sit in power forever and hand it over to his immediate Family (Namal). He thought he can achieve it through continuing the oppression of minorities and creating personal wealth converting the state wealth into personal. The greediness made him to become more and more authoritarian and unlawful and finally people realised that Mahinda was very dangerous and he will even eliminate his other family members if there is a possibility to come back to power. Nowadays his brother Gotapaya has become a competitor in the power race and it is unpalatable to Mahinda. Legally it is not possible to face an election for next three years, So it is going to be military coup with international assistance. The recent visit of Mahinda to China should be considered carefully and I am sure USA & India will take this message very seriously. Sinhalese masses should be very cautious and should not fall in the trap of Mahinda which is disasterous to the whole Nation.

        And few illiterates and the men behave like thugs are his supporters.

        Not all 5.8 millions voted for him are thugs, but most of them misled by DERANA AND Hiru.
        Hiru s man is now in Jail.
        All these prove the background of those voters.

        I think current leaders and rulers must do lot more in their media events.. sending the message louder than sofar.
        Else, those idiots will spread lies fooling the gulliable people further.

        Oh so much love for the Sinhala masses!

        Mahinda did gave us a peaceful country after killing that mass murderer. The country Mahinda got in 2005 is totally different than the country he left in 2015.

        Mahinda is a very competent and an intelligent politician. He showed his competency within an year since he came to power in 2005. After two years this joke called yahapalana has no achievement to show for the poeple while MR had liberated East within two years of coming to power.

        He has already shown his capability, he rid us from terrorism and developed the country. And i know the terrorist supporters fear him and hate him.

          Not Mahinda but collectivity succeeded elemination of LTTE terror within the country.
          But that was instrumental by Rajaakshe family in looting the nation.
          The consequence was his unexpected defeat in lanken politics -that was similar to a snap and collapse of a glass wall into all pieces.
          Since the aftermath became to him and his family even tragic since they were the ones who were called by CID for various allegations levelled at them by various groups of the society. Among them minor to major – high profile crimes including killings and murders were known. Except his youngest son and his sibling Chamal Rajaakshe all others including his beloved wife were alleged to have commited crimes of high magnitudes – latter was compared with that of Gadafi, Sadam, Zimbawian Mugabe or any other dictators looted their own countries.
          But the media men not forgetting Derana and Hiru even today promote his message thanany good moves being mapped by the current regime.
          WIth all the verdicts being awaited of the on going allegaitons incl. murders – even today Rajaakshes to prevaricate their thoughts to the media – has become like hurting even wounds after injuring someone.
          Anyways, 2017 will be their decisive year – more likely than his come back or efforts on toppling the govt.

          “Mahinda is a very competent and an intelligent politician.”

          That is why he went for election two years earlier than he would have been in power and lost the election – 100% intelligent & 100% competency (Sach scale).
          Get rid of Terrorism – You mean the attack on MUslims and Mosques by BBS.

          Devt- You mean the increase of wealth of Mahinda family by $200 billions.

            and what about the other numbers got heaped in the post war scenario with Gota s involvment. I mean journlists and many others including Ekaniligoda and the like went missing. Thadjudeen was taken as victim to please his donkey sons.
            Torments of those victimized families tremour lanken soils today – all together will become a wave no second tsunami 2004 in the near future, if the authoriteis would not take any better actions.

            The mournings of nothern and southern mothers and relatives will corner Rajaakshe and theirmen if not now in the near future: That is more certain – සත්යය සාර්ථක වනු ඇත truth will succeed.

          ” …..so much love for the Sinhala masses …”

          Didn’t he pay Prabakaran money to help him defeat Ranil? I suppose he did that to save the country from Ranil being elected. As for his cosy relationship with some LTTE high ranking war criminals after war, I suppose that was relations building with Tamils.

          As far as I am aware, MR screwed everybody for his own selfish gain & still wants more. There is no end to his greed & one more term as President will be the end of what we know as SL. We are already in deep shit thanks to the Rajapakse. Though SL had its share of lousy leaders, this guy takes the biscuit.

            You think MR forced Prabakaran to take the money? You can bet that if the LTTE accepted bribe it was because they thought IT WAS TO THEIR ADVANTAGE! You think the LTTE was stupid to accept money to let someone into power that they did not want? Enough of this stupid argument, if people were smart enough to realize this in 2015 things would be be very different now.

            You think Prabakaran could have paid Mahinda to lose the election? Why not? Cos MR loves power you say, ok, then we can say that Prabakaran loves power as well?

            A majority of the North and East not want Mahinda. Not sure how it is now. That is why he lost.

      You talked about BILLA BILLA BILLA – FEARS. What happened to UNHRC since 08th Jan 2016 ?
      Do you attack them just because current regime dont have the nature of boasting about their achievements ?

      With a few companies to be open in the country -while all the previous projects move forward, what do you want more them to achieve, in the context you left behind ? Remember the depths of credit the govt has to bear ?
      It is like you ate tonnes of hoppers even making Dansal but the bills are left to be paid by successors. Am I no right here ?

    Putha Mahinda

    I writing this note from the heaven.

    Please do not play dirty politics. You just completed your 70 years of age. Few more years to say goodbye to the earth. Go peacefully and retain your good name over the good work you have done which other leaders could not do.

    Defeating the LTTE has stamped your name in the history of Sri Lanka and the world. That is enough for you.

    You failed to deliver peaceful political settlement to the historical conflict with the our Tamil brothers and sisters. Let Maithiri and Ranil do what you could not do. Give them your support.

    If anyone take you before the international court, do not fear. Go with your broad chest and make use of every opportunity in the Court to make speeches that should touch the conscience of the world.

    Putha, I want you to meet me in the heaven. I will be restless if you go to hell.

    You are my good and best Putha, Please follow my advise.

    Finally, please disassociate with all those hate driven lethal fellows like Wimal, Denesh, Gamanpulle, GLP etc. Also advise your kids and your siblings to behave well. Make arrangements with Donald Trump to give save heaven to Basil, Gota and my grand Puthas.

    Convey my love and regards to my darling duva Shirani.

    MR,
    A shrill cry from the wilderness! A per-acute thirst for power and the freedom to abuse it.

    Who is the root cause for many of the issues you have highlighted? You and no one but you!

    Stand in front of a mirror , dressed in all your regalia and ask, ‘Mirror! mirror! Who is the cause’? You will have a clear answer.

    You made what was bad much worse. You lost rare opportunities with wanton disregard for consequences. You wallowed in your war-winning glory, blind to ground realities. You pawned this country in exchange for ‘ White Elephants’ from China. You cheapened our politics and broke the spine of good governance. You made highways and super highways that did not spur the economy, but made many super rich. You cooked numbers relating to our economy and hid debts. Law and order were your’s to rubbish and trample. The People’s money was your’s to waste and plunder. You mercilessly and unjustly wreaked vengeance on a lady Chief Justice. You turned a blind eye to those who opposed you, being killed, tortured or harassed, You relied on thieves to pursue your dastardly vision. You appointed the APRC and threw its recommendations in the dust bin. The people were sick of seeing your giant size hoardings all over and your naming all the projects, except toilets after yourself!

    As a brief respite, do you want o hear one thing good about you?

    Of course, your moment of glory was not winning the war, but how you dealt with IDP’s in the camps and restored infrastructure in the north and east.

    Thereafter, you lied through your teeth to all and sundry about political solutions and left a hopeful people resentful.

    You had the power to do what was right, but deliberately faulted. You were a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

    However, you had the temerity to toy with the constitution and purchased members of parliament to consolidate your power and crown yourself King forever. You did everything for yourself, your family and your cronies. What you set in motion is yet haunting this government. You are yet the Ghost haunting us.

    Karma rewards and destroys. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.

    Is this enough or do you want to hear more?

    Beware, whoever is writing for you, is all out to destroy you totally!

Jayawewa to this nation for having a majority of ignorance reeked on sheer racism and narrow policies and agendas.

    “The SLFP members in the government who were elected to parliament on an anti-UNP, anti-government platform, but have since joined the UNP led government, now appear to be engaged in a struggle with their conscience. “

    What “CONSCIENCE”???? If these crooks had anything even resembling a conscience they would have nothing to do with you (MR) or the politics you and yours indulge in.

      WE became THE PARIAHS OF THE WORLD AND YOU WERE THE LEADER?? in the process of Killing all the Minorities and those who opposed your kind of leadership were white Vanned or faced summery execution by your warlords.
      We have seen and suffered in Silence. You and your people only spoke in public .

      The country has changed the ATMOSPHERE HAS CHANGED thanks to Yahapalanaya for at least we can write the Wrongs and speak freely.
      The rest we know as we see and hear The Yahapalanaya is protecting your Despicable crimes committed by you lot , wonder how long one can HIDE FROM CRIMES COMMITTED. NOT FROM THE GOD ABOVE US.

      Enough of your crap the country is falling apart and you’re shedding tears for your own GAME PLAN.

      Gamini – Hope the “decisive” part will be that he is incarcerated for his crimes.

      The problem seems to lie with your man Ranil and his boss, who for some reason known only to themselves are protecting this man and his family of thieves.

      Ranil is no longer “Mr. Clean” – time he was disinfected!

    All the above comments are from Yahapalana supporters/anti-Rajapaksa groups. I understand their frustration, upset, anger, and helplessness.
    Nevertheless,I wonder why this man is still so popular in Sri Lanka and among the expatriate Sri Lankan community. Whether we like it or not he will possibly be elected prime minister within the next few years when an election is held! So far nobody can say that with figures because the current government has postponed all major elections citing funny reasons.
    I’m not taking any side but we all know ex-prez Rajapaksa did one thing very well: i.e. defeating terrorism decisively in this tiny island of SL. He was not scared of the threats made by powerful politicians in the West, and because of that very reason he became a target of a hate campaign launched by opportunistic local politicians and their Western and Indian masters. His good work was overshadowed by shady deals done by his so-called aquaintances and family members.
    However, I can never forget that I live in Sri Lankan today safely because he made it to be one of the safest place on earth. Our expatriate Tamil brothers and sisters may not be happy about this but that’s the truth!
    The thefts, looting, other misdemeanors he has been accused of doing or helping to do, will be judged by the history because even the current government with so much ‘power & noise’ has so far failed to make a decision on those allegations!
    In fact the Central Bank bond scam has overshadowed all those previous allegations/accusations. That’s why 2017 is crucial for SL!

      Earlier … it was just 6.2 Mio, but by today, even more over 8.0 Mio out of voter eligible (15.0Mio). believe that Rajapakseh looted this nation.
      So, it is sad for his silly remarks about his come back as if he is the only man to run this country.

      Any good leaders, including Nelson Mandela and asian and european/american leaders after serving their due terms feel, that the chance should be given to the next.
      The rest of their times they focus on their retirements.
      But this ballige putha to hang on a come back is ajoke.
      His mouth piece seems to have been wandered to the other end.

    Elite , Anglican and Vellala faction lead UNP Government has two goals.

    Fulfill their pledges to the Diaspora Surendran and the Vella a Party TNA, to give them the Homeland which they have been fighting for since Mr Chelva wanted half the country for Tamils.

    Elite Anglican and Vellala Faction’s second goal is to rig the Electoral system so that they can perpetuate their hold on power with the help of the Tamils and Muslims, after the nation is divided under PM batalanada Ranil’s new constitution.

    Majority of the Sinhala people who make up the 70 plus inhabitant population will be unhappy when they realise what the new constitution has done to their rights and the influence they currently have in the country.

    With the ETCA which open up even our janitor jobs to Hindians ,the poor rural Sinhala Buddhists and their progeny will be doomed, in their own Mahawamsa Land.

    Wonder what has happened to Sinhala kollas like Keselwatta Kid and car Permit Senasinghe..

    The sovereignty and territorial integrity of our motherland and the fate of future generations will hang in the balance in 2017 under this increasingly dysfunctional government.

    Hmm, what wont even hang in the balance in my anduwa are:

    The sovereignty- I am the king, and the sovereign, people voted are my subjects.
    Territorial integrity- China integrate into our the small island with the injection of a few billion $$ into the same bank accounts, still kept, but in dormant, making SL a part of China.
    Mother land- Hectares by hectares encroached, or threaten the parties that own valuable mother land into selling to the king and his family so mother land is no more in balance, but will balance the future needs of my future generation.
    Future Generations- will have ride on white vans if they see anything abnormal about smart patriotism, there wont be a ‘balance’ issue.

    “2017 Will Be Decisive For Sri Lanka” – by Mahinda Rajapaksa

    More “decisive” than what happened on 08 January 2015 and 7 August 2015?

    It is UNP led holy alliance has made grave political mistakes by wrong doing after obtain power from voters 2015 January 9th under the leadership of MS, Ranil W.. of UNP and CBK of ex-SLFP.

    The People’s mandate is politically important for sources of sovereignty of the nation Democratic country like Sri Lank.
    Last 24 months since 2015 January 9th that UNP led unholy alliance has betray cause of bunch of promised which has given before the Peoples of majority in Islanders.

    Therefor the Power of sovereignty exercise by UNP led MS, CBK and Ranil W.. has betray good will of People’s mandate. Indeed after UNP ruling alliance twist mandate of “good governance and rule of law” , by the persons and alliances of parties in currently power lost their mandate to run administration by the time that to cease to exist in 2016 December 31st.

    The so-called mandate turn and twist by UNP leadership is no longer valid for ever by UNP leadership thinking is wrong. The period mandate is give to not to play with life of people is not that democracy; Parties has go before People’s is democracy to seek new and fresh mandate New governances? That is essential in the norms of democracy.

    Well, people having every right seek new mandate under Democracy is that old mandate expire, or undermined by UNP alliance ,therefor the legitimacy of Governances is no longer valid under democratic ruling power in current UNP Govt.

    The change of govt.is principle sovereignty of the Right of democracy in year 2017.

    We appreciated what that MR seek new alliance is will of Majority of People’s sovereignty.

    I support for democracy ,hence I wish MR has very right to seek new mandate. That is Will of people that asking represtantative of democracy of legitimacy of our nation.

    Time has come for President Sirisena to take a stand and take into custody the Rajapakse family (Mahinda,Shirani, Namal, Yoshitha, Got-a-baya and Basil) for monies stolen, bribes taken and people they have killed. Yahapalana Government was voted in for this purpose.

    To be charitable Mahinda Rajapaksa is not a selfish person. He allowed his henchmen to amass wealth as much as possible. A luxury house, expensive vehicles, joy rides to Western countries Rajapaksa gave away. In his time there was no difference between government and private property. Multi-million rupee white-elephant mega projects in Hambantota like the Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport is idling. The second international airport in the country – stands on 2,000 hectares of land. Although Rs. 39,600 million was spent on this project, international airlines refused to land there.
    So is the Magampura International Port in Hambantota built at a cost of US$413 million. Overlooking the port is another white elephant – the Magam Ruhunupua International Conference Hall costing US$15.3 million. The only international event that was held at this conference hall was in 2013, 9th Youth Forum of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM). Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium in Suriyawewa is yet another white elephant project. Built  in a 47 acre land at a cost of Rs. 700 million, the stadium was declared open in 2011 for the World Cup matches. All of them have become massive burden to the country’s Treasury. The same Mahinda Rajapaksa refused to rebuild or repair a single house in the Northeast destroyed during the war pleading lack of funds! It is the tears shed by the war victims, especially widows the women who lost their husbands and sons/daughters during the war that destroyed Mahinda Rajapaksa. To him the Tamil people were not citizens of the country and far as he is concerned they did not exist at all.

    Gonpalana govt has proved without reasonable doubt that other than selling the country to China in pieces, they are incapable of achieving anything!

    Cost of rice increasing at alarming rate, days of this govt is numbered.

    Dear Former President Sir,

    Several of the points you made can actually be verified through reference to published statistics from reputed web sites. eg http://www.tradingeconomics.com/sri-lanka/

    Declining growth rate – True
    Declining foreign reserves – True
    Deteriorating exchange rate – True
    Increased taxation – True
    Increased interest rates decreased in 2015, now increasing
    increasing inflation – True
    Phenomenal increase in the national debt – national debt is increasing

    Of course this could be interpreted as adustments due to the change in government and the agenda of the present government, so maybe we need to give it 4 more years to stabilize and make Sri Lanka Great Again.

    I am not sure our people are so patient, however they want quick results like on January 8th 2016. My argument is that bad government is better than change of government. I wish you a bright future sir!

    Divide the country into two – on upper half UNP other bottom half SLFP. We should be willing to move to Hambanthota, it already has an airport and a port. Unfortunately we will miss our Colombo friends and their money.

    What was your plan when you were in Goverment Mr. MR?

    Spend , Spend , Spend on borrowed money without a bloody plan on how to earn it. Development was superficial on burrowed money. Then rob, rob , rob the money you borrowed but that to only by your family. You have the bloody audacity to write such nonsense …..language that only villagers like you will believe.

    I am not for a moment saying that this Goverment is doing a good job. In fact they are not but we certainly don’t want you or your family to rule us ever.
