Audio: Ranjan Ramanayaka Has Heart-To-Heart Chat With Weerawansa’s Wife Despite His Self-Righteous Tirades In Public

Ranjan Ramanayaka, Deputy Minister – Social Empowerment, although he has publicly lambasted Wimal Weerawansa (MP) over allegations of fraud and wrongdoing, is quite pally with the Weerawansa family out of the public eye, as evidenced by a leaked tape of a phone conversation with Weerawansa’s wife Sashi, herself accused of obtaining a diplomatic passport after submitting fake documents.

Ranjan Ramanayaka and Sashi Weerawansa

Ramanayaka, a man with a penchant for drama and grandstanding when it comes to corruption while posing off as a man of integrity does not seem to have any issues with Mrs Weerawansa as per this phone conversation.

Sashi Weerawansa, for her part, speaks as though Ramanayaka is a long-standing personal friend who has helped her family on numerous occasions. She also speaks of Minister Rajitha Senaratne‘s wife Sujatha, who she refers to affectionately as ‘Sujatha Akka’.

The conversation is initiated by Ramanayaka who is apparently concerned about disparaging remarks made by Wimal Weerawansa. Mrs Weerawansa pleads ignorance of such remarks but indicates in the conversation that the two (herself and Ramanayaka) are close friends and that she has been communicating with one of Ramanayake’s associates to obtain some information.

It is not certain when this conversation took place or what the file and issue referred to are about.

The following is the English translation of the full conversation:

S: Good morning

R: Good morning

S: How are you?

R: How are you, how are you? Nangi, even yesterday I have been scolded. I tried to settle the issue, but it’s not going to happen. Your husband has said on the page that I am digging for dirt. I can’t do anything when I am attacked like this.

S: Attacked you?

R: Yes. That Ranjan is digging up dirt, that he rushes into temples, saying ‘that Ranja, One-Shot and saying nasty things like that.

S: No, no. We listened to the speeches, there was nothing like that. Did you listen?

R: Yes, I listened. The video was sent to me. I have it with me. That there’s a fellow called Ranjan who crashes into Buddhist institutions and destroys Buddhist rights. I have been scolded without any reason.

S: I haven’t gone and won’t go for meetings, Ayye.

R: Where are you? Are you home?

S: I am in Dehiwala, at my aunty’s place.

R: I called Dr Rajitha [Senaratne] and that a message has been sent to him. But why is he like this?

S: He hasn’t been home in 2-3 days because of the meeting. I didn’t meet him. I don’t know.

R: Where’s that thing you told me about? I will see the lokka today. You didn’t send me the file.

S: So you didn’t answer when I called.

R: Did you call that day? You said.

S: I called you to say that I won’t be able to come but that I will send it. Then I called your production manager, Prageeth. I told him that I will give it to him and asked if he could give it to you. He had tried and tried, he said…

R: Who is Prageeth?

S: The one who is with Sunil T?

R: Ah, yes, the dark guy. I’ll tell Lucky to do it. I will tell Maithri Lokka to sort it out. So what’s new Nangi. Everything is ok now, right?

S. Sujatha Akka called me….Rajitha Ayya’s wife…she said she had told you and that she won’t let anything happen to me. [She said] that it’s with the Attorney General and that nothing can happen. Actually, you have helped me a lot and I am with you. They will resolve it. If there’s anything, I will call you. Regarding this matter [Wimal] I will send him and sms…

R: No, no, no…don’t do that now. He’ll say that I am trying to get you to get him to stop this. I wouldn’t call you for such a thing.

S: Ayye, but they can interpret things in various ways, you know.

R: Ayyo, that’s true, that’s true.

S: That I talk, we met, but I haven’t even posted a photo anywhere.

R: [Laughing] Ah…the one that was taken that day?

S: Yes.

R: Ok, send it to that dark boy. Make sure it gets to me.

S: Yes, it’s very good…as a human being (he/she) is very good. Politics is not important. As a human being (he/she) is a good person. I tell everyone this. Sujatha Akka will call me in a little while. If necessary I will call you Ayya.

R: Right, right, right. I will tell them to collect the file from you.

S: Thank you very much Ayya for calling and helping me. Forgive me if you were hurt in any way. I am not part of all that.

R: Ok. Ok. I’ll tell Lucky to call you.

S: Ok. Budusarani.

        We must thank CT for exposing how the perpetrators of crimes get away at high level with the interference of ministers to do political favours to their friendly women and men. The ministers sidelines the crimes of political friends by passing words to the investigators and scratching each other’s backs.

        That’s why the alleged crimes committed by high ranking politicians including the members of former familial rule enjoy freedom to mischief making at the expense of ordinary citizens.

      No this is just mud slinging video on Ranjan and other ministers.

      Actually no one with sanity can get on with Wimal Buruwanse.

      We happened to see the man how he attacked the incumbent Speaker.. no respect at all.

      The kind of politicians we had never in the history. Lack of education make the kind of law makers that criminal.

        Not Ranajan Ramanayake, but our most evil Champawathi in this platform should be the person to reach out in order to get lot more aobut the estranged creature wimal ponnaya weerawanse.
        I would not wish anyone to face it, but to Wimal W since he has been that abusive in feeding the gulliable masses with unethical loads.

        That is very common in SL today. evne if contract killers would leave a place saying budusarnaiy.

        See the most abusive Rajapkashe behaves like a strong buddhist, but he woudl do anything and everythign to destroy anyone standing against him.

        Now with the NEW YORK TIMES ARTICLE in the air, the news to have been telecasted by Derana and other abusive senders get threats just because it was given a publicity.

        Rajapakshe is CRIMINAL KING of this country. All the media business men are scared of him. Pathala world and everyone are friends of Rajakshe men.

        I wonder, Premadas could not live long becuse he was brutal, but why the same Karama seems to be far away from Rajapakshe.

          .
          Mahinda will have a long life. What happened to Premadasa didn’t happen to him as he WASN’T brutal. He gave life to 22 million people including you by eradicating terrorism. Relieving 22 million people from fear of death aroused by terrorism has brought him immense merits.
          With my whole heart I pray for him to live another 20 years or more with the Blessings of Sacred Tooth Relic.
          Sometimes Karma comes to those who wish others to die. If the unfortunate happens which is beyond our control, I wish you to be born as a Buddhist.

    What can I say . Ranjan pulled one on Vijayakala, to see it is promptly being returned back to him. I did have some respect for this guy for his straight shooting talk. But now I am not sure anymore.In Lanka even normal human beings when turned to politics become some thing else. Irony is VK is out for some thing she said in the public but the ladies mentioned here in the conversation and out there in public like Geetha, Rosy, Pavithra ….etc….etc are still good enough to be leaders and what not.

    It shows clearly that what we see in the outside world is much different to what is happening inside. They cheat all of us through dramas and lies but in real they are indifference. All are corrupted and there are very confident there is no legal actions against them for robbery, misuse of power, murders, corruption, illegal activities. It is a Sinhalese nation.

    CT making a mountain out of a mole hill? Sensationalism! W all know already that all politicians have a double life. This does not add anything new to the knowledge except provides the evidence of one of the mechanism of how their system works. Working through wives to pull strings and manipulate or influence their husbands. It is also in the text of this conversation, “Whatever the politices, we are human …..” I have never seen even arch enemies in politics refusing to talk to one another at weddings and funerals of mutual friends and relatives. It just goes on. There is a lot of hotair for the public, but in private everyone is a buddy. Don’t you guys understand the conjuring trick of politicians. They are a phenomenon for themselves, to make hay for themselves while the sun shines for them.

        This clip didn’t upset me a tiny little bit. If anyone didn’t know the solidarity amongst politicians then he or she must be so naive.
        Just look at the bigger picture in SriLanka, has FCID found any Mara loyalist guilty? Has the Judiciary found any former crooks guilty?
        We all have a fair idea as to what went on in those days and even now, but not a single high profile case has been concluded and people made to face the full extent of the law. What should that tell us?
        We are really living a lie. Nothing is what it seems behind the scenes.

      this is typical to srilanken nature. They are no serious in anything.
      So that surely answers everything about the lanken beings. Politics are just for good civilized people. Even if social indicators such as high literary rates and others are near to those of singapore, our people can easily be tamed by petty distributions. No matter if they are rice packets or even condoms. This nation, I am focusing the majority folks would do anyting and everyone not thinking twice. How can they ever reach to the leavels of civilized progressive nations ?

      What matters is the credibility of the audio. If he at all tried to release into public or was a leak to attack his image.

      And the manner the Wimal Buruwanse s wife added her remarks make it clear that Weerwanse has gone to mad.
      Even today, him to have not been arrested for the brutal behaviours made in the parlimaent should every means be condemened.

      Dont you think so ? I think our law and order is still WEAK in every means.

      These men would not do it again, or leave a lession to all that follow them, if that occured in European soils.

      People enjoy some sort of democracy in Europe, but law and order is above anything else.
      Be it in UK or other countries, laws are rigorously imposed.
      Disipline is demanded.
      Not a single man could react the way Wimal Ponnaya did, if law controlled the society.
      Be it a man in high political ranks or the lower, should not be given a chance to escape from high crimes.
      Today we see FORMER president just adding LOWER remarks on the allegations levelled at him. But Media men have been made his servile men. They the meida woudl not give it a publicity.
      Where is the justice ?
      Lanken folks have been mainpulated for their political INTOXICATON.

All those are old cases, the gove is witing until the elections come to make hay out of those. I think One shot is traying to score on that when the govt bring these cases to the courts.

    I heard SAshi Weerawansha has loaned money from Politicians’ wives and did pay back. Besides, the govt will not redarmcate the electorates. Instead, they will increase the number of candidates for the General election to 300 and that will include children, brothers and sisters of many exsiting politicians and some have written here. IT says Ranil and Mahinda Rajapakse will fight the election from one Front or may be just to scare Maithripala sirisena to say come and talk to me.
