Any Alliance Formed In Collaboration With Sirisena Would Be Led By MR: JO Decides

Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa would lead any alliance or government formed in collaboration with the SLFP faction led by President Maithripala Sirisena, the Joint Opposition (JO) has decided.

The meeting of the JO was held at the personal residence of Sri Lanka Freedom Party Chairman G.L. Peiris, in Colombo, last night (09).

Addressing the meeting attended by a large number of JO seniors and party leaders, former President Mahinda Rajapaksa spoke about widespread speculations on forming a coalition government with President Maithripala Sirisena.

The former President said he had made no decision to enter into an alliance with Sirisena and assured JO leaders would be consulted before making any such commitment.

UPFA Parliamentarian Janaka Tennakoon, a senior member of SLFP, said there could not be two leaders in any government.

“Our leader is Mahinda Rajapaksa. Any future government – be it coalition or caretaker – should be led by Mahinda Rajapaksa,” Tennakoon said.

The leaders of the JO then decided to empower former President Mahinda Rajapaksa to make a final decision on the matter, on behalf of the group.

There are conflicting views within the JO group on the possibility of forming a new government or alliance with President Sirisena. While a section of the group is pushing for an alliance with Sirisena, a sizable proportion of its members have opined that the SLPP should work towards the dissolution of the current Parliament and form a new government with a fresh mandate.

The group led by Basi Rajapaksa, the chief ideologue of the Rajapaksa group, believes that entering into an alliance with Sirisena will put the party at a disadvantage at the Presidential election.

Basil Rajapaksa had stressed that a new government should be formed with a fresh mandate.

    A plan to recreate their lost domination . Global Tamil Order, once build at the cost of the blood of native indigenous people lived in their own lands across southeast Asia. This included Modern day Sri Lanka, Kerala, Karnataka, Maldives, Thailand, Burma, Malaysia, Singapore, Laos, Sumatra, Java- Indonesian Islands, Andaman Islands, and more. Once they create a foothold in northern Lanka They can control the sea and put their plan to action.

    Tamils have already set up their world government with agents in every places of power.
    Banks to financial power,
    world govs’ and United nations’ positions to political power
    University positions to rewrite and create false history
    Media, News outlets for propaganda and cover up their crimes.
    Entertainment industry to make a positive look on Tamils.

    We have been the victims of their centuries long countless murderous destructive Tamil invasions. All the ancestral victims of Tamil invasions of over past 2000 years, across Asia must support each other regardless their religion, color or language to defeat this genocidal Tamil Mania.

        Janaka from Matara -” I come from the deep South and Tamils never have treated me with anything less than friendship and respect.”

        Hi Janaka may I reciprocate…..I just returned from Sri Lanka , I traveled upcountry, Hambantota, and along the south coast…. every where I went the Sinhala people treated me with respect. I stopped over at Habantota Shangri la for lunch, after lunch I realised that I left my mobile phone in the car, I was not able to call the driver (Sinhalese as well) to bring the car come around to the lobby, the car was parked in the car park far away. It was burning hot and after a heavy lunch , I have to walk in the hot sun to the car park, the Sinhala security guard told me “….Sir you wait here I will go and get the car for you….”

        its the politicians and racist likes of Champa, Hasithawik, softly softly who drum racism among the Sinhala people

          CT Editors: “It’s the Economy Stupid!
          Lankan social and print media is being played by CIA playbook at this time to– divide, distract and rule by external parties who are crashing the economy to gain control of Lanka’s policy space.
          There is lots of fake news that is being spun by the US Peace Corps that is teaching English in Lanka, with diplomatic immunity, and playing on Face book to weaponize religion (anti Muslim riots and hate speech). to divide, distract Lankan people, and advance Trumpland’s strategic security and business interests in Sri Lanka in its New Cold war against China in Indian Ocean!

          While media is distracted and confused with a fake news story of MR’s corrupt US citizens family’s (Basil and Gota) return to govt. with Sira (not so coincidentally following MR’s visit to Delhi), the rupee is being crashed so Lanka may be asset stripped and bought cheap by US govt backed private companies and Japan’s Namura ratings Economic Hit men who are targetting and Sri Lanka’s strategic lands and transport infrastructure (air, marine and road data).

          That is why, in the choice between the Homeland and the right to live anywhere ( the inevitable, unpalatable choice that entails a ‘ political solution’) I plead behind the Tamils to choose the latter. NOT A SINGLE TAMIL FAMILY presently living in Sinhala majority areas will voluntarily opt to leave for the Homeland.
          I am campaigning for electoral ban of names like HELA Urumaya, TAMIL National Alliance and MUSLIM Congress.
          Can I count on your support?

          Yes, the Sinhalese treat other communities with a lot of respect. As recently as March 2018, the Sinhalese showed their marvelous hospitality to their fellow Sri Lankan Muslims in Teldeniya and Digana. You should have been there to see firsthand the gratefulness and charity of the Sinhalese.

              Talk to the point man and re-read Keynes comment.
              I haven’t been to Digana or Teldeniya to incite anybody in person or through social media.
              CT will vouch that, instead I posted comments after comments here asking Sinhalese to not to fall for the government trap and attack Muslims. I praised Buddhist priests who went to Mosques and stayed there overnight giving them protection and some other Buddhist priests who patrolled areas where Muslims predominantly reside. Many media published the photos of their benevolence acts towards Muslims.
              The international media first reported that Sinhalese Buddhists were attacking Muslims. But then later they changed their version to “government sponsored goons.” Muslims attacked temples and Sinhalese too, but those incidents were concealed and only Sinhalese were apprehended.
              If you think that I will run away at the sight of the word “racist” you are very much mistaken. I stay here and expose all the lies of Tamils and Muslims against us.
              I have a right to seek the same rights as Tamils and Muslims who could live anywhere in Sri Lanka without any problem and practice my religion anywhere in the country same like them.
              I should be thankful to CT as this is the only English medium public forum that goes international with the participation of Sinhalese, an opportunity I utilized to the fullest so far to tell our side of the story.

              Rajash,

              Two-thirds of the Sinhalese voted for Mahinda Rajapaksa in January 2015. The Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna, a Sinhala right-wing political party, captured 40.47% of the votes at the local elections in February 2018 and came out as the single largest political party with the UNP gaining only 29.42% of the votes. The problem is not the politicians. Let me explain. The businessmen Antony Fisher was amazed by the book The Road to Serfdom, so much that he approached Hayek in 1945 at the London School of Economics. Just like David Ricardo more than hundred years before, Fisher wanted to go into politics to influence policy.

              Fisher commented to Hayek:

              “I share all your worries and concerns as expressed in The Road to Serfdom and I’m going to go into politics and put it all right.”

              The response of Hayek was immediate:

              “No you’re not! Society’s course will be changed only by a change in ideas. First you must reach the intellectuals, the teachers and writers, with reasoned argument. It will be their influence on society which will prevail, and the politicians will follow”

              You see, the politicians just follow the masses. It’s not the other way around as you claim.

                Keynes!

                It is not that simple.
                There are several aspects to people/voters being stupid,
                racism, anti minority measures legal or otherwise, party brand loyalty, vested interest of individuals, perpetuated myth as history, insecurity of the mass, induced panic and paranoia, media, free rice …………………… conditioned mind, addiction to certain type of politician, ……………….. are some of the reasons come to mind.

                Politicians make use of and take advantage of stupidity of masses, in effect it is Pavlovian Conditioning. I am sure you are aware of Pavlov’s dog.

            I come from South and I have enjoyed their hospitality and I still do.
            However if majority people are so hospitable why do they allow racial hatred to build up and explode periodically, resulting in mass murder, rape, looting, destruction to properties, ……….?

            I am told Sri Lankies are literate. What does it mean? It didn’t prevent them from committing atrocities, war crimes, human right abuses, …… abusing children, women, disabled, animals, ………… This applies to all sections of the people.

            Face the reality.
            A dangerous situation is created by lies, and perpetuating myths, then atrocities take place while the police doing nothing to protect the victims or encouraging the rioters , then do gooders come and feed the victims, ………….. and you are proud of them. And the myth about good people continues.

          Oh man, have you forgotten YOUR OWN COMMENTS against Sinhalese and the Army?
          How many Tamils/Muslims here said MR and Gnanasara Thero should be burnt alive and various other ways of killing them? Have I ever said any such things against Tamils or Muslims?
          .
          I’ve never initiated anything against anybody but exercised MY RIGHT TO REPLY on behalf of my country, my nation, my religion, our leaders and our Army.
          If I kept quite, you will never call me a racist.
          Since I exposed all the lies here by Tamils, Muslims and LTTE sympathizers, I am branded a racist (not that I give a hoot for the label.)
          .
          You are not the only one who admired Sinhalese for their good qualities. There are hundreds of thousands Tamils and Muslims like you, all over the country. That is why there are more Tamils and Muslims living in Sinhalese areas than in the North and East.
          .
          Prabhakaran managed to conceal his crimes against humanity and war against a sovereign country purely due to LTTE diaspora’s calculated, incessant false propaganda.
          .
          CT forum was a haven for full of lies, distorted history, fabricated stories, slander, defamation and smear campaigns against Maha Sangha, Sinhalese Buddhists, and our Army before I started posting comments here. I attacked their lies and cleared misconceptions as and when time permits.
          What I’ve been doing here is seen in Geneva too. The world is stunned by the voice of Sinhalese.
          Many Sinhalese were scared of the label “racist”. That is why they kept quite.
          Now Sinhalese are talking. The world is listening.
          I am telling you labeling me as a racist will never deter me from doing what I am doing.
          The amount of personal attacks on me proves that I am doing a bloody good job here.

        Hey guys let me recap the situation we the average witness sofar in the country today.
        There are two main groups in lanken politics today
        1) Sirisena led COALITION govt with UNP seems to be ruling
        2) Rajakshe led -bunch of thugs -that are obviously making every effort topping the incumbent govt and grab the power by hook or crook- mainly not being able to be paitent with the FCID or other investigations for allegded high crimes during the Tenure of their mafia boss MR.
        The current coalition or national govt whoever it may call what, has achieved lot but not the most important pledges they made in PE campaigns have fulfilled or neared to do so
        Which is nothing but punishing all the wrong doers of high profile crimes that became the routine under the lead of MR from 2010 to 2015;these crimes were namely extrajudicial killings, human assuaults and disspaearences far more than the worst days with 30 year old civil war. People s wishes were to have a better country with the respect and safeguard to basic human rights. But latter was missing and damaging by Rajakshe power greedy family politics
        Late Rev Sobitha led all various civil society groups unanimously stood with then number one step which was MR to be chased away for a better and civilized culture; a culture that will respect LET alone basic human rights as CW nations expect from their member states, a culture that would repsect women and children; a culture free from being caught by white vanners or contract killes worked for GOTA led facists groups on broad day light; Red rob wearing BBS men with higher aggressions attacked muslim people for nothing but MR s vicious agendas. If Mulisms were seen as being discriminated by majority sinhalese,

      Once they are formed and effective, all the set of criminals and ones with allegations of sky high will have to face it.

      Rajaaklshes are the top of th elist. I believe, the current govt wait to block them with those investigaitons, in the months to come. That may the reason them to delay them upto now.

      Joint Opposition (JO) ,

      RE: Any Alliance Formed In Collaboration With Sirisena Would Be Led By MR: JO Decides

      “Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa would lead any alliance or government formed in collaboration with the SLFP faction led by President Maithripala Sirisena, the Joint Opposition (JO) has decided.”

      Yes, that is the only way all the former crooks, including Mahinda Rajapaksa and his cronies can be protected from the crimes and stealing and the way forward for all the crooks to be immune, and continue to steal going forward.

      Importunately, Sirisena has failed to prosecute the crooks, and is in bed with them, and has turned out to be a Traitor, Sevalaya, Mala-Prertaya, Patolaya and crooks to the 6.2 million who voted for him.

      Déjà vu

      Legally, there is no way to change this government before they complete 4 1/2 years.
      Even illegally, there is no way.
      Didn’t Maithri take JO a ride, a few months ago? They fell for his trick with their eyes open. The way he maintains rapports with various people is funny in a way. And compared to Maithri’s canniness, JO and Mahinda are like kindergarten kids.
      What is there to say when even people like Wimal fell for Maithri’s trap? Too bad Wimal decided to support Gotabhaya. I hope he will come to his senses before the next Presidential election, so that we can work together again!!!!!!
      As I say over and over, people are already fed up with all political parties SLFP, UNP, JVP, SLPP.
      Whatever politicians think or say, the next President will be elected by silent apolitical votes. And he is not a Rajapaksa. Guaranteed.
      Mahinda is ok, but he can’t contest.
      If another Rajapaksa contests at the next election, all forces will come together, not necessarily as one, but they all will VOTE AGAINST “the Rajapaksa.”
      There is no way people go back to 2010-2015 era.
      Millions of people are just bidding time until the next Presidential election is announced. People like me pass time by voicing personal opinions in forums like this.
      Until the time comes, we have to make calculated misfires. Misfires. Sometimes I laugh at my own political misfires.
      I haven’t write a proper comment re: the next President as yet. Too early.
      After observing people for nearly 4 years, I very well know on what basis people will choose the next President.
      Chances for a Rajapaksa becoming the next President is extremely minimal for obvious reasons. Wealth, intimidation and nepotism will be challenged and then defeated by opposite elements.
      Until the right time comes to make our own wave, we all have to swim with the tide.

      Rajapakseh was naive and he was raped by Modi during the visit.

      He thought their invitation him to come and see them was in favour to him.

      No, India thought it was high time them to show the world, that they are closely in touch with lanken both former and current leaders.
      And the GLOBAL economic race between China and the US is appeartenyl the real race for everyone today. WIth larger and continous CHINESE involvment in lanken development projects, India is becoming very thoughtful, how they could and would be able NOT being invovled in lanken issues.
      All in all, they the pragamtic forseeing leaders in INDIA are acting that way.
      Our guys such as MR thought, Indians prefer his leadership than the current leaders.
      Current duo in the country are not showing off, but they have been achieving a lot in external affairs.
      See, this time, no UN resoultions were the talk – not even big influences on locally held investigatons on war crimes were questioned that hugely ? Are these not real good achievements ?
      I simply believe, the current DUO are a good symbiosis, but they should work little bit more dynamically towards implementation of reforms to the prevailing law and order systems. They should go radically against former culprits not as is the nature they move forward:
      None of these Rajakashe men should HAVE the right to roam in the city. They are all HIGH crimnals.

      So they make every efforts to mislead the nation.

      There is no suc fall of Economy. But the global effect is on lanken Economy too.

      Had Ballige putha been the President meaning, Rajakshe, we would have been fallen to much deepers since wastages his mismanagement costed the states billions.
      Chogme and other circus he held then costed state a lot.
      Today both leaders just travel to some forums, but they dont spend billions the way former RAJAAKSHE did.
      They just move around as if any normal leaders would do.
      Their delegations are limited to few
      All is known to people, but MEDIA men mislead the nation further.
      They just send across the wrong and all unethically accepted views around why ?

        WAKE UP MAN and see the list of foreign visits they have made within just 3 years and 9 months which is a Sri Lankan record.
        Together, the President and the Prime Minister have made 61 visits (40+21) within 45 months.
        It is like every 20 days for the last 3 years and 9 months, one of them had been overseas!!! How is that? And their delegation? Find out and tell me how many they took abroad for each visit and who are they?
        It is very funny for CID to investigate some people who were in Maithri’s delegation to UN taking pictures of him and his hotel/hotel room and publishing them on LankaWhatNews, breaching his security. This shows how ignorant President’s Office is. They don’t know the composition of President’s delegation. How could “unknown” people went to UN with him? Don’t PSD check their backgrounds? How many such useless people have travelled abroad with the President and the PM at the expense of poor taxpayers?

      It’s natural for LTTE supporters to hate MR because he defeated it & what’s amazing is they don’t hate those who claim that it’s their efforts that won the war. (SF & president MS claims that he’s the commander in chief @ final stage of war?

        I am not talking about LTTE and their terror elemination.

        But the behaviour of Rajajahse who has been intoxicated by his greed to return power.

        I see it as very disgusting, since no nothing else, but they the most abusive bunch of JO have all along been trying to topple the incumbent govt. Why ?

        If all the govts on this earth would behave so, this world would have been a PLACE left by a tsunami.

        Rajapakshes greed to return to power is not for the nation, but for thier family and cronies. That is it.

          Rani was defeated in 29 elections before his political bait Maithri win the Presidential election for him, helping him to form a government.
          Mahinda lost only once and that also happened not because he was unpopular but because his own party General Secretary contested against him dividing the party.
          Which number is greater? 29 or 1? And who is greedy?

      It has already happened on May 19, 2009 on the banks of Nanthikadaal Lagoon.
      About power greediness, there is no greediness man. Mahinda is our leader. People want him back in power. He can stay in politics as long as he wants with the blessings of all the lives he saved from terrorists.
      You hate Mahinda for vanquishing terrorists. We love him for the same reason!

      My wish is them to be punished by the gods sooner than later.

      If lanken courts fail to put these men in jails for all the high crimes they deliberately committed in the last phase of MR admistnration,, there shoudl be a way these men to be taken away.

      In Europe, if OPPOSITIONs would make efforts to topple the govt by any means, that will be considered as a criminal act.

      But Rajapakshes are allowed to do what they think is right today. I think the rulers are too weak – they should not allow former crminals to abuse the freedom given to the people today.

        The trials against the Rajapaksas will be rigged to let them off the hook easy. This will trigger a huge international incident that ends up with not only the Rajapaksas but all those who conspired to protect them being taken to the Hage for trial at the International Criminal Court! Already the more serious cases are being avoided and only the smaller cases are being taken up!

        Native Vedda,

        that particular Channa Jayasumana ‘s professor title is questionable.

        As I myself know it, he is not a person to claim years long post doctoral research experience. He just entered to some research projects on unknown kidney disease in the Rajarata faming community combined like minded in Nikaragua or the like countries.
        To that time, he had not completed his doctorate. But how could he become a professor immediately on his return to the country ?
        Can you please do some search on the facts.

        These men would dance to the tune of former Mafia King – that is for sure. Nalaka Godahewa is the same. He has not so years long experience on statistics, but the creature dares to expresse them as if he had been an expert.

        All in all, these men are like FLIES found on heaps of KAKKA of Rajano.

        So long the Nilamassos are the problem, we the lankens impartially waitng for a better future will be lagged.

          You see there are thousands of unqualified persons in this island who claimed to have completed post graduate degrees and put Dr in front of their names. There are ordinary people with no academic qualifications nor teaching experience nor any research papers to their credit are being addressed as Professors.

          Channa Masala Jayasumana could be one of them. If we are going to investigate about his academic and career path we should also investigate others. Is it worth our time and effort?

    The former President said he had made no decision to enter into an alliance with Sirisena and assured JO leaders would be consulted before making any such commitment.

    The plan is on going there is no decision when it is finalized it will be consulted, and through the own decisions rather than our conditions, it will be carefully plan to do certain things, and accomplish this is only a signal, lighting comes earlier then thunderstorm follows.

    The drama begins! The splitting of the party it self is a SHAM. For their self gain it was convenient then to divide the party and there by still managing to infuse the JO into government for the purpose of not allowing government to succeed,foil all investigations and inquiries, play the role of double agents in helping MR, white wash some of their own sins in the eyes of the public and now that their plans have been well executed it is time to merge again for the next charade.MS being the most naive but power thirsty went with the original plan. The rest (JO/SLFP) were there as proxies doing the bidding for MR. This way they have seen the end to Bandas SLFP and have cut the risk of a coup next time. The SLPP is the new SLFP. MS is left with no options. Either join and be a silent member or say bye to politics.For time being MR will be happy to see the end of MS political history/dreams. The rest will be gifted with position,power and money. What appeared to factions have conveniently come into SLPP fold to form the same but with new name under MR.Got to give the due respect. When it comes to scam and sham there is no other person better than MR.

    “Basil is the chief ideologue of the Rajapaksa camp?” This is the first time I heard this.
    His job is to keep the JO divided at all times in favour of the slave government and confuse Mahinda’s grass root supporters with various canards by feeding varied news from time to time to jeopardize Mahinda’s popularity and question his sincerity.
    Basil never had any ideology. Moreover he never cared about Mahinda. Otherwise who would run away when Mahinda mostly needed the emotional support of his own blood? Mahinda’s election manager ran away the moment he was defeated. :D :D :D He came back for a purpose and it is “now showing.”
    Basil Rajapaksa clearly is double acting. The moment the tide turns the other way as against his plans, he quickly changes his previous stance.
    Unlike in 2015, Rajapaksa camp has no ideology anymore.
    After Basil took control of JO out of the blue in early 2016, all the decisions were taken on ad hoc basis.
    He deteriorated JO’s quality and credibility in style by making them issuing contrasting views.
    Not only juniors but even seniors falls for his trap.
    He feeds the news and then the seniors are divided on the topic. Some seniors who are too quick to voice their opinion in favour of the topic later find out that the whole issue was either a made-up or a misfire.
    Who would believe when JO says 20 UNPers are with Mahinda? Nobody. It is like Basil saying “you see, 3 Rajapaksas are summoned to the courts today. This is how… blah blah blah.” I heard this I think about 2 times before. There is no way 3 Rajapaksas come to the courts on the same day unless someone “make that happen” through Court Registrars. This type of attempts are childish.
    As proven again and again, the entire camp is based on Mahinda’s popularity only.

    Who is Mahinda Rajapakse?
    A power greedy, blood thirsty Criminal. One time JVP sympathasiser, Went to UN against Srilankan armed forces along with NGOs funded by Western Countries. He send his brothers to US as refugees and later to become permanent US citizens. He paid large sum of money to LTTE andhad agreement with LTTE to not to vote in the 2005 Presidential elections. Over 30000 Sinhalese youths (armed forces) were killed in the war with LTTE for killing 100,000 Tamil civilians. He robbed this nation to become the richest number 1 in this country. He destroyed the democracy, freedom of speech and justice and law & order. Do you want to trust him again?

      Mahinda Rajapaksa is not someone you described in your comment. He is the total opposite.
      Your comment is an absolute lie.
      First of all, Mahinda, as a lawyer represented his clients. There is nothing wrong with that. He was never funded by NGOs or Western countries. I challenge you to prove your rubbish.
      He never sent his brothers to US. They were not infants but married people who went to US on their own personal will. I challenge you to prove your rubbish.
      He never paid money to LTTE or entered into any agreement with LTTE in 2005. I challenge you to prove your rubbish.
      Armed forces never killed 100,000 Tamil civilians. I told you to prove this rubbish many times but you never did as you have no proof.
      Mahinda never robbed this nation but empowered them.
      Prove that he is the wealthy No. 1 in the country. If he was, this government would have filed a case against him. There is no such court case.
      He didn’t destroy the democracy, freedom of speech, justice or law and order.
      If he did, Maithri would never have become the President and Ranil would never have formed a government.
      If he didn’t accord freedom of speech to his political opponents, Maithri and Ranil wouldn’t have been able to carry out character assassinations and smear campaigns against him when he was the Executive President, to mislead voters. They had all the freedom to do this under Mahinda.
      If he didn’t uphold democracy, they would have ended up in jail instead of the Highest Office.

    Comment by Native Veddha……
    Please read modern politics history of “Parliamentary democracy mask” has been unveiled by current UNP political leader of Ranil Wickransinghe joint hand with CBK of Tamil Federalist and MS as head of puppet of state that FAR- right-wing caucuses has fully discarded whole order of democratic rules in the first since 1948?
    1 In fact 66 years of since 1948 rules of democratic is no longer valid under governance that conducting and functions by under the UNP; the accepts norms of majority in Parliament NORMS kept beside…by UNP leadership of RW.
    Minority party of TNA that proxies of LTTE has been granted that leader of Opposition .JVP of southern Anarchist of Terrorist outfit joint as opposition organizer . These two political outfits are principally
    anti-establishment and anti-democratic classes organization. These parties -roots goes to politically anarchism, while their political prespacatves concern which that are undermining order of democracy …of their 70 years of TNA …..JVP last 53 years.
    2 Rule of Law has taken over by RW of UNP . While Court of Law turn into invalid by most of Justice system day to day operation by UNP high hand ; and Judges are politically appointments decided by Primer Office.
    Special high courts Judges are aim at politically target opposition MPs and MR family members.
    Supreme court judges , Attorney General department, high courts and other Minor courts direct & control by UNP party office of their lawyers and Primer’s Office.

    Maitrhipala Says that Rani,lis not arrested for the bond scam, and he is more trustworthy than the Rajapakses who are still waiting for his neck. Ranil on the other hand asks no one to put him in the fromnt as he may not get the required number of votes. Rajapkses says If Champike Ranawaka comes, he did not do anything as the monister for the maga city plan, not even renovation work, the other ministers western region, upc ountry and Mahanuwara etc., are against his work. They say they want to do it. Itis the same last time, even though he was responsible for electricity, power plants including the new one were under rajapskes. So, thzt will be champika Ranawaka’s failure by not doing any work to the country.

    All 9000 politicians, most the 225 and the 4500 of the provincial councils are very corrupt. So, that can not be taken as even the Ranil’s FCID or MY3’s CIABOC did not have solutions. The best way is Maithripala PResident and Rajapkses in the parliment. what Rajapakses are asking are ministers posts for them If Maithripala is a leader, at least a little bit that would be fine. We know Ranil’s economic vision 2025 won’t be in place until 2025. So, suffer until that. If the Dollar goes to Rs 300 rupees we have to sell our lands and harbours as theh local currency becomes toilet papers to visiting tourists.

    MR must lead JO to unify and mastermind the assassination plot of muppet Sirra because there is no other BROOT-as MR or blood sucker like Goatabaya to plan a heartless assassination and escape like the one done to Lakshman Kadirgamar, after blaming LK’s death on the LTTE. I think Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka was lucky to escape death from the clutches of the MR-Gotabaya axis of murderers after several attempts to poison General Fonseka in prison failed, and another attempt by unleashing contract killers sent and sponsored by the Presidential Security Division. If correct, military deserters working for the underworld that was also out for the general’s scalp would have been the tip-off to spare the General’s life by sending messages over to loyal servicemen protecting General Fonseka. I wish gonn Sena will very soon meet his Waterloo in a similar fashion for allying with the murders. The drama playing out with the TID (including the Police) is all a charade that the Madamulana puppet masters are maneuvering. The trick is to make a internal rift between the Police and the Yahapalanaya government. These recent incidents are aimed to make our police a scapegoat. All this is a decoy to trick the vast majority of our deranged voters who keep voting for narcissists such as MR or Goatabaya. I wish our idiotic president can see through MR’s ruse.

      Didn’t he build powerstation which doesn’t generate electricity, a harbour with no ships anchoring, Airport where no planes land or take off, …………….. with Chinaman’s loans at exorbitant interest rate, capital and interest payable which include commission received by the clan, ……………..

      When you are on your b***s carrying duties could you ask Dr Mahinda how much did his brother the former national hangman steal both in cash and gold from Vanni and why he is reluctant to urge his brother to repay it to the poor inhabitant of the North and East who forked out them to your brethren VP’s tax collectors in the first place.

      Probably Dr Go would have thrown some crumbs to his loyal single handed commanders who witnessed the robbery, and helped to transport the lot to Colombo and sell the gold in Chetty street, ……………..

I mean he can not bend his back while he is on the bed, So, the 10-20% BAsil Rajapakse has to be the advisor, consultant spokesperson for Mahinda Rajapake.

    MR has succeeded in manipulating us into thinking that the allegation of wrong doings are highly exaggerated. The foundation has been laid and efforts will be to make the allegations untrue and that he is a knight in white amour.

    He set up SLPP as a temporary holiday home but looks like it is there to stay. He tasked Prof GL Pieris (MR’s Wimal MK2) with the SLPP job.
    A warning to GL P: There is Wimal MK3 (aka SB Dissanayake) about to push you.

    Lapatiya, spot on my friend. I guess if anyone had lived in Lanka for few months after living else where, can easily become a political pundit in predicting the political axis of our politicians and parties.There is a well established algorithm and formula in Lankan politics. From time to time our politicians keep improvising it, but stay in course. The retarded public keeps electing the same expecting a change. Religion and race are the primary tools which are used in abundance to divert the public from their deception.The time tested tactics ( since independence) seems to be effective even now. So why kill the goose that keeps laying golden eggs???
