An Open Letter To All Parliamentarians

By Lihini Fernando

Lihini Fernando

Dear Parliamentarians / Representatives of the People,

It is after much deliberation I pen this to all the 225 sitting in the Sri Lankan Parliament, the representatives of our legislature.

As the crisis deepens each passing day,

Each passing day you all become irrelevant if you fail to stand with the people or fail to listen to their sentiments, voices and provide solutions.

The solution to the crisis remains with the decisions you take in that parliament, which was once prestigious. You are the representatives of the legislature and not just representatives of your political party. You ought to take decisions that are not just politically correct, but decisions that will yield value to resolve this crisis.

We all know the President is an Autocrat, a Dictator with enormous powers vested via the 20A. However collectively all of you 225 is as equally powerful as him, if you act according to your consciousness, if you acknowledge that you are a representative of the people and not of your political party. The sovereignty of the people is vested upon you, and you ought to act in the best interest of the people and not of yourself or your political party.

Either you do your task with sincerity, or the people will decide on each of your future course in politics. People are no longer stooges of Political Parties, but very informed citizens of Sri Lanka.

It is a make or break for all of you!

The citizen suffering on the road today is not as privileged as you. I question whether you ought to know their daily struggles. If so, will you parliamentarians act in such a callous manner? (Some of you don’t fall into this generalization). They are unable to meet their ends and are dying while being on queues. This is the people of Sri Lanka, the people that voted for you. Do you hear them?

The curse of a weeping mother who is unable to feed her child, is far more powerful than the power you hold. Try to understand their sentiments!

Your actions speak louder than your words

Politically correct statements have no value today.

Political or party endorsements too have no value.

What matters is that you all are leaders that stand with the sentiments of the common man, and you all are leaders that is geared to provide a solution to this misery.

Your calling is bigger than your party agenda!

Sri Lanka today is like a ticking bomb. Each passing day/minute we are sinking. The moment the crisis hits the banking sector we are doomed. Don’t let it happen to this country.

The President, Gotabaya Rajapakse must go home

The Prime Minister, Mahinda Rajapakse must go home

But the remaining honest, good-hearted, knowledgeable politicians that are in the parliament, you all must unite and fix this country. You calling is bigger than your party.

Be leaders of RELEVANCE

If not, you all of you will be IRRELEVANT

There are many professionals, academics, activists, honest citizens, youth who are willing to setup, take center stage and fix this mess. Yet they have no platform, no mandate nor any power. If the citizens had a choice, they would resolve this crisis by themselves and leave you all out. You are obligatory to act in the interest of the people of this country.

Some of you today have become just nominal representatives, and only you are to be blamed for it. Some of you have dug your own graves. Some of you have become a meme, a joke, a laughingstock. Today the people wish death upon some of you. What does it say about the role you have played?

You still have time

Honesty & Sincerity goes along way.

Do what is right today

That is what will secure your future and not your political games, deals or agendas

SET UP! SET DOWN!

 May you all be blessed with wisdom to do the right thing by the people of this country.

        Dear LM, my good friend,
        .
        Could you please tell me what language this is?
        .
        Honesty & Sincerity goes along way.
        .
        This is not English; I’d fail her, at whatever level.
        .
        Do you know whom she reminds me of? Seetha Arambepola!
        .
        I’ve never seen this woman, nor heard her. I have noted that she’s written, in one place, of “the sentiments of the common man” (hell, isn’t she concerned about women?); I scrolled down the comments. Many address her as “madam”. Isn’t there some discrepancy in that?
        .
        Anyway, thanks, LM, for linking me to that YouTube. As I write, there are only eight comments. None by old codger.
        .
        I plan to show my commitment tomorrow early morning by getting into a bus leaving from near the Bandarawela Railway Station for the Uyanwatte Stadium in Matara (I don’t know Matara all that well.)
        .
        LM, when I chose to differ from you in the case of Hirunika, I had to eat my words, when you showed me how she had led protesters in Jaffna, and argued with racists in Colombo.
        .
        I wonder how you will respond, when you see this comment of mine?

          Dearest SM,

          thank you for your kind comments. I expect you, OC and all other true souls to respond to Kalay on the his topic separately. I dont think it is a fair comment. There are sinhala racists. There are also tamil and muslim racists. But we are all not racists. Ours efforts are to promote srilankenness.

          I guess she might have mixed it up with the following quote or the similar.

          Sincerity and truth are the basis of every virture- Confucius.
          .
          Anyway what matters is young lady – Lihini’s message is clear to all.

          Hirunika risked a lot – her being a mother of 3 little kids. That is why my eyes could not believe, how her efforts were not welcome by some, her fearless acts were very unique to her…another victimized daughter in srilanken population. I also respect Ms Eknaligoda and her bravery to have sacrificed her long protected hair (attraction of a woman) to the ocean/divine forces, not being able to bear the pain any more.

          Btw, you could show your commitment by joining to those in your area. I think it is no wise you to travel there. We are worried of you and all right at the moment.

              Dear LM,
              .
              That’s poor Sandya Eknaligoda.

              .
              Hers is a lost cause. At least as far as finding her husband, Pradeep, was concerned. I tried to tell her that, as tactfully as I could, about the end of 2014. It was at a meeting of Vikremabahu Karunaratne’s NSSP in the New Town Hall. Venue is definitely right; I think the year is right. The time when we were trying so hard to depose MaRa as President. We succeeded.
              .
              Have you heard the 75 minutes of CBK eleven days ago?
              .
              https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-zV8TBSS8uo
              .
              I’ve heard it twice. CBK helped me relax, and at times, when she paused to think, she got me to think as well. She rightly refused to commit herself to forecasting things about the future, but she told the truth, as she knew it, of the past.
              .
              Below this, see what I HAVE already submitted in response to Jit.

          SM,

          “….This is not English; I’d fail her, at whatever level….”

          Your ignorance is so unhelpful if you ‘fail’ her for a typo. Read her message my friend – which is more important here, than your English language paper marking skills!

            Jit,
            .
            I will respond to your question in more specific terms; I will probably put it at the bottom of this page.
            .
            At this moment, I’m listening to something that “lelagemalli” has suggested. I have paused it after 21 minutes of more than two hours. that requires careful listening to, unlike the screaming that I’ve just condemned.
            .
            However, before that I’d spent almost an hour listening to this:
            .
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6YeRX6ZYXH0
            .
            That’s Noam Chomsky on the Russia-Ukraine war only six days ago. That’s got things that are terribly relevant. Listen carefully to the 93 year old. At 9 minutes he speaks of how hysteria is whipped up. Just before that hear whom he, surprisingly, names as the only statesman who’s got it right. And at the very end he speaks of how much the media distorts. Now, LISTEN.

              I listened to the above 57 minutes very carefully.
              .
              I now find that there’s a 59 minute video that had come out one day later, on the 28th of April 2022. I can’t listen to it right now, but I will when I get back from Bandarawela town. I have scrolled down and looked at some of the 40 comments, which indicate that not all of this is in English. Here it is:

              And, there’s another 23 minutes, recorded on the 30th of April:
              .
              https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UYDkmZAbTx0
              .
              I usually make comments on the YouTube also, where I don’t describe myself as a Sinhalese! I use my real name:

                I’m sorry, Jit,
                .
                That detailed critique isn’t going to get done, but please work out for yourself my real objections. What I have indicated here is a general sloppiness in the use of language, but it is in the style of speaking that you should sense an unconcern with truth and values.
                .
                There are good lawyers who are concerned with uncovering the truth, but this is not one of them. She’s a politician in the making. You ought surely to be aware of the poor opinion that most Lankans have of lawyers as a profession!

        Leela,

        “why only singhalese ?”

        Finally you see the light. Now go and back read 100 articles on CT, same pattern. These people are opportunists who want Sri Lanka to COLLAPSE. That is their only goal after losing a civil war. Just like with the civil war, they don’t care if some innocent Tamils get caught in the middle.

        Regarding Gotha, chances are he’ll lose the next election whether he resigns now or not. So these protests are irrelevant. The macroeconomic situation is bad worldwide, meaning relief will be limited in the best of circumstances. For the sake of stability (security), it’s best to have Gotha/MaRa around a little longer.

    Thanks very much for the current letter – Lihini, you articulated it as no others. I have watched several TV discusisons where you were part of the panel. You ve been doing a great job. Young lawyers of your calibre should come foward at this turning point of the nation.

      Leela: Leave the Tamils out of this. They did not vote for these criminals. South voted and let south deal with it. There is no place for Tamils in this. Sit on the side and watch the clown show Tamil people. When the Sinhala start talking about doing something for Tamils and giving some rights then do
      engage. Do your thing and mind your own business. Let the Sinhala fight it out. Once the fight is over then we need to start a negotiation how Tamils and be a equal citizen of Sri Lanka. Until that time. Tamils have no business in this fight.

        Kalay,
        “…we need to start a negotiation how Tamils and be a equal citizen of Sri Lanka.”

        There is nothing to negotiate. Please tell us:

        • What is it that the Sinhalayo are enjoying that the other communities are not enjoying because they are not Sinhala?
        • What is it that the minorities do not enjoy because they are the minority which the majority enjoys because they are the majority?
        • What is legally, constitutionally and legislatively given to the majority that is not given to the minorities?
        • What is it that the Sinhala Buddhists are enjoying that the other communities are not enjoying because they are not Sinhala Buddhists?

          “What is it that the Sinhala Buddhists are enjoying that the other communities are not enjoying because they are not Sinhala Buddhists?”

          Excerpts:
          Sri Lanka opposition MP prohibited from protesting to seek redress in higher court
          BY DULYA DE SILVA AND NESHELLA PERERA
          Friday April 29, 2022 5:13 pm
          economynext.com

          A restraining order issued against Sri Lanka’s opposition Tamil National Alliance (TNA) MP Shanakiyan Rasamanickam preventing him from taking part in anti-government protests for two weeks was not vacated fully on Friday (29) and the party will therefore file an application in a higher court, TNA MP and lawyer M A Sumanthiran said.

          Dumbo how come people are being allowed to protest in the rest of the country even during curfew but not in the East by a Tamil Speaking MP?

          Why don’t you come visit the island for a change, you will learn a lot?

          1.Only Sinhalayo have the right to ban fertiliser.
          2.Only Sinhalayo can bankrupt the country.
          3.Only Sinhalayo can produce disaster and call it
          splendour.
          4. Only Sinhalalayo can win a “war” and lose the
          peace.

        Kalay,
        Yes. Majority of Tamils voted against Rajapaksa regime but a few Tamils supported Rajapaksas and elected few MPs. It is true Tamils suffered for long under the Sri Lankan regimes and Sinhalese supported this regimes and ignored the problems of Tamils. However, the economic crisis is a common problem created by Rajapaksas and they should go and the protest is not political parties and there is nothing wrong to give moral support to the protestors as human beings and if this opens the hearts of ordinary Sinhalese people and find a solution to the national problems (Devolution and economy) that is great. We Tamils already lost everything and there is nothing to loose.

        Kalay,
        .
        Now how the hell am I to counter that argument of yours?
        .
        Can’t. I started on this. Typed out the question. Then I opened another tab on the display. Scrolled down – only eight comments. One by my good friend “leelagemalli”.
        .
        He’s got a heart of gold. I have no idea how such a heart pumps blood into even the nethermost parts of his body. Never mind; let him settle that with his “Brother Ass”. If you don’t understand that reference, I’ll explain it on Monday.
        .
        He’d given us that link to this young woman’s speech. I listened with a mixture of wonderment and horror.
        .
        No, I can’t continue! With what incredulity did I read them!
        .
        I realised the reason for your comment.
        .
        But, Kalay! Neither LM nor me has ever voted, nor will ever vote, for the Rajapaksas. We may both vote for Shanikyan – for President, although I’m hoping that the position will be abolished within the month.
        .
        You can be sure that when LM and I next get on to WhatsApp, we will fight for an hour! That’ll be next week, so you’ll have to start negotiations in the second week of May.

          Shanakiyan Rasamanickam writes me once a while. His is similar to that of ours. He is genuine. no doubt about that. The calibre of young MPs could do lot more. No doubt, they will.

            .
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHUVd_Wuzqg
            .
            Comments n this article are going to close soon, but I’m afraid that this is still going strong elsewhere. It was sent to me by my sister in Brisbane who means very well. I’m sending this back to her via email; have exchanged WhatsApp messages with her and asked her to expect it.
            .
            However, I know that she is unlikely to find time to examine critically the way we do.
            .
            We shouldn’t pass on as profound what is really rabble rousing. A number of videos by Harsha de Silva are really good.

            I criticised Lihini on Youtube; no likes for me (they get counted), but no dislikes either – YouTube doesn’t display their cont of those.

        You seem to have unearthed some critical information!!
        How do you know that they did not vote for Gotabaya???
        This is the childish inferences and conclusions that causes this country the continuous fiasco and debacles!!
        You are assuming the proclamation by MR and GR from the grounds of Medamulana and Carlton House, as the truth??
        Inferences and conclusions drawn from inferences by the cunning has been the bane of this country!!

      Do not say that too loud, for R Bros. Inc., may hear that and list the Parliament building, although a gift of the Japanese government and People of Japan to the people of Sri Lanka, may get wild ideas to privatise and put it up for sale like the Colombo port East Quay or Jaya Terminal!!
      Ambani’s – new owners, developers of the West terminal, are looking for a spacious warehouse, in and around Colombo environs, I hear from the grapevine??

    Lihini Fernando,
    “The President, Gotabaya Rajapakse must go home
    The Prime Minister, Mahinda Rajapakse must go home”
    —-
    Do you think the problems in this country which were created by ‘Yahapalana’ dong keys can be solved by sending President Gotabhaya Rajapakshe and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapakshe home?

    In 2015, people like you sang the same song and persuaded 6,217,162 retards to vote for ‘Appaya’ and sent Mahinda Rajapakshe to Medamulana assuming that there will be peace and prosperity under Ranil’s ‘Yahapalana’ Government but eventually that turned out to be a great disaster. The ‘Yahapalana’ dong keys ruined the economy and peace people enjoyed after eliminating Tamil terrorists by allowing Muslim terrorists to carry out terrorist attacks.
    Most of the guys who were in the ‘Yahapalana’ Government and those who gave their support to ‘Yahapalana’ Government are now in the opposition. If Gotabhaya and Mahinda go home, these crooks might fight among themselves to grab power and drag this country to a worst situation.

    Sajith and Anura tell Rajapakshes to go but they do not say anything about how they are going to pull this country out of the current economic crisis.

      “Do you think the problems in this country which were created by ‘Yahapalana’ dong keys can be solved by sending President Gotabhaya Rajapakshe and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapakshe home?”

      Do you think people are that dumb to believe in that stupid idea?
      All those who connected to the destruction of the country should go for example:

      All politicians
      All Sanghas and saffronistas, about 70,000 of them
      All members of Armed forces about 400,000 and 15,000 generals.
      All state funtionaries, about ?????, including Judges
      All news paper editors, about ?????
      All racists, about ????
      All …..
      All Mao’s b***s carriers

      Potta Eye, I don’t usually respond to your worthless racist crap unloaded here all the time. HOWEVER, if you try to cover up the utter mess these world class Rajapaksha pirates have created almost in the last two decades AND blame that s**t on Yahapalanaya; which did its best to restore Sri Lanka’s lost democracy in our recent memory, then I conclude that you definitely belong to that four legged specie. Please contact the local Fonterra office or Ambewela or Pelwatte people and you’d get full time employment there producing whatever they want in exchange for some nutritious fodder.

      EE,
      “Do you think the problems in this country WHICH WERE CREATED BY ‘YAHAPALANYA’ DONG KEYS can be solved by sending President Gotabaya Rajapakse and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapakse home?”
      What an Idiosyncratic, ‘Idiosyncratic-complementary thought’ of an ill-found equally inconsistent mindset, with faltering memory and floundering thoughts, due perhaps to mainly the ageing process and ‘Amnesia’ to boot, repeating the same question and getting the same answers over and over again non-stop!!!
      How do you have the gumption to blame the Yahapalanya for the ‘Bull Shitters’ actions post November 2019, after becoming EP???
      One needs to and you, specifically have to give a good reason and substantiate your claim especially, when Yahapalanaya ceased governance and GR dismantled all their good deeds end 2019??
      PRE COVID-19 PANDEMIC IN Sri Lanka!!! DON’T BLAME PANDEMIC TOO, BECAUSE IF YOU DO YOU ARE CLEARLY INSANE!! If that is the case the destination in Sri Lanka is Mulleriyawa or Angoda!!
      In your case you need to research and locate the destination in Australia to facilitate remediation, if any is available???!!

      Some salient point to stimulate your fertile mind with positive thoughts?
      1. Implementing a thoughtless Organic fertiliser project, losing the plot resulting rice crop failure?
      2. Export Tea crop Failure and orders going away from SL and diverted to India, and East Africa, the new “Haven of the R Bros Inc.,?” Js it accidental or deliberate action to secure the future of Robbers!!
      3. Nincompoops experimenting with Modern macroeconomic Theory (MMT)?
      4. Fixing the unrealistic US Dollar rate, so the Dollar holders “took flight” or decided to retain their Dollar holdings in their countries of residence because they were noy getting the “Real Bang for their Bucks” which is only natural?
      5. The ‘Know All and Servile’ practitioners experimenting MMT were such ‘Juveniles’ in economics (may be not so in as practicing accountancy and ‘printing money!’) creating inflationary trends at 30 to 40%??!!
      6. The MMT juveniles did not even know, when and how to recommence to ‘FLOAT’ the SL Rs currency post ‘Fixated rate’???
      In that circumstances “How does one blame the Yahapalanaya”???
      It is the bad governance and “falling asleep whilst in control at the helm”

      Blame GR, MR, BR and Pohottuwa governance and none other, as GR and MR with 225 “acolytes in parliament” to “hold their hands” and willingly give ‘support and succour’ to enable the repeal of the 19th and enable the 20th which was demanded as the Panacea to ensure ‘GOOD GOVERNANCE’ BY HIM AND ABLE ASSITANTS and their ‘Boot Lickers’.
      Alas, that was not to be – meaning ‘good governance’ when they were in control??!!
      Sadly they GR and his band of enablers, are solely responsible for actions, (sorry inactions – as they appeared to be in DEEP SLUMBER, WHEN THE STATE AND NATION WAS CRUMBLING TO DUST!!)
      They caused it all by themselves none other, certainly not YAHAPALANAYA!?
      Simple question and answer to explain my thought to you and other CT readers!
      Who is held “CULPABLE”, if a driver of a truck or car, falls ‘asleep’?
      1. Pedestrian?
      2. On Lookers?
      3. Injured and killed? Or
      4. The Driver?
      EE, once answer is proffered, you have the answer to your Million US (preferred) Dollar question, without any more futile debate??!!

    Author’s writing expounds an image that she dares to write anything about the politicians. She says to 225 stooges not to be just politically correct, (anyway what is that Gilamart?) but to do the right thing? What is that right thing anyway? How many chairs can the lady provide Johnston Fernando to do the right thing inside the parliament? How many gallons of water can the lady provide to Sudharsini Fernando to wet the chairs or Pavitra to reflood the flowing rivers? Is that Right Thing is a politically correct euphemism for all what the Langkang politicians have achieved thus far? 75 years of peeling Lanka is what the UNP & SLFP politicians did to the country. Now, what is left more on that Right Thing to do to bark country by these 225+1 stooges- The Buffoons?The protestors want all of them to go home. Damn, in support to them, what is the holdup to tell cut & dry that “YOU DIDN’T HIT SO FAR SO NOW YOU GET OUT”? Truth is you all are oxygen givers to the died Royal Aanduwa through nose, mouth, eyes & any other open holes, in a desperate attempt to prolong the Maharajanee Dutugemunu! Jehan PhD has been doing that artistically advanced form in the past.
