CBK And Many SLFP Organizers Caution Sirisena Against Joining Forces With Racist, Divisive Groups

In a letter to President Maithripala Sirisena, former President Chandrika Kumaratunga said she would not betray the principles they stood by on January 08, 2015.

Chandrika

Kumaratunga, in her letter, had urged Sirisena to give leadership to fulfil the promises given to the public at the last Presidential election.

Kumaratunga had made it clear that she did not approve of Sirisena’s plans to form an alliance with the group rejected by the majority of Sri Lankan voters at the last Presidential and Parliamentary elections.

“I have not forgotten the magnitude of bribery, corruption and thuggery that prevailed in this country between 2005 and 2015. I have also not forgotten that the majority of voters rejected the same group in a fiercely contested election in January 2015,” Kumaratunga said.

She has also forwarded a letter written by a group of SLFP organizers to the President. In their letter, the SLFP organizers have cautioned the President against entering into an alliance with “racist elements” trying to divide the SLFP.

The letter is a strong response to Sirisena’s attempts to join forces with the Rajapaksa group and the Sri Lanka Podujana Party ( SLPP) to contest upcoming elections.

The copies of the letter have been sent to former President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga, former Prime Minister D.M. Jayaratne, Senior Vice Chairman Nima Siripala de Siva, General Secretary Dayasiri Jayasekera and National Organizer Duminda Dissanayake.

SLFP sources said 136 organizers of the party had extended support to the group which sent this letter to President Sirisena.

While pledging their continued solidarity with the party, the group requests Sirisena to strengthen the SLFP as a party as a modern democratic party that can move forward with the global political trends. They reassured that they did not intend to join the UNP, but urged Sirisena to take their concerns into serious consideration.

They claim that those who fell out of power in January 2015 are attempting to divide the SLFP and serve the political agenda of the UNP.

They have also asked for an appointment from President Sirisena to discuss the current state of affairs in the party.

    I think Mangala Wants CBK to take over or gang CBK with Maithripala. But, CBK says to Maithripala to always ” Ayi Umba mage puthata denne Neththe the Party chairman position. So I come on a wheel chair and defend the party. MAhinda Rajapakse knows that that is why he is building the JACKAL OPOOSITION (JO)

    Ranil and his gang betrayed all the principles of good governance that they deceptively stood for before the 2015 election. The helpless voters were betrayed. All those who were on the stages with Ranil have either deserted him or killed off, except his buddy Chandrika and SF. So there is no point in directing Chandrika’s begging letters to MS. She should have reworded and addressed it to the traitors, bank robbers and other gangsters that are burdening people wth unbearable taxes to make up for their, and preparing to partition the country. If UNPers are so confidence with their propaganda and lies, why they fear MS or MR. Go ahead now, go ahead with the elections, and people will decide what is good for the country if Ranil is such a saint as he is claiming.. If MR was such a villain as UNP was trying to make out then the voters will chuck him out, so why worry at publish begging letters.

      For sure Premier RW is not the person who betrayed the principles of good governance but Sirisena and BP Rajapakshe.
      :
      It was SIRISENA with giving nominations to those highly corrupted men in SLFP (16 -clan) not even waiting two weeks after SIRISENA becoming EP.
      .
      Helpless voters were betrayed not by RW but by MS, if I may share you, here, Mr Senior Post Doc .This man foudn greener pastures in the UK, but has failed to learn the little about the democracy, even if UK is believed to be the oldest democracy inthe planet.
      :
      Your silly arguments are akin to Sirisena s in terms of Dissolution of Parliament.
      But over 10 judges together stood against Sirisena and his unconstitutional acts.
      .
      The rest of the devious agenda, servile to Rajapakshes moves on, but SIRISENA would never work out anything he feels is right for the country. His greed to grab power for an another term is obviously above the country/People’s needs
      .
      The sum 51 d controversal coup costed the state 2 Billion Dollars from Sanchitha.
      There you guys that have been made permenantely deaf and blind would never sense, nor would you guys ever.
      .
      I am not an UNPer, nor am I JVPer, but I stood RW in his campaign against Anti-DEMOCRAY in our rotten hell – Rajapakshes and their men have looted it to the core, and have further been up to do it from where they stop.
      .
      So long RAJAPAKSHE would remain ALIVE, nothing for the betterment of the nation would be a dream.
      .
      We truly respect DEMOCRACY and Mr Ranil Wickramasinghe with whatever actions he would take in terms of the future of this nation.
      :
      We will stand AGAINST any RACISTS and Rajapaahses forever.

    Chandrika’s actions were justified in responding to Rajapaksha’s attempts to create a dynasty (this is the case with all politicians whose children automatically become the next generation of leaders – a reflection of the idiotic voters).
    Sadly, the unintended consequence of her actions was the creation of the most corrupt government ever, which culminated with the bond scam. The present government does not reflect what people voted for in any shape or form.

    CBK had no influence on the sequence of events. Her present attempts (it is unlikely that she does not understand the consequences) will only allow UNP to return to power. The logical conclusion is that her actions will lead to the COMPLETE disappearance of SLFP and its eventual absorption into UNP.

    Sadly, there is no political party an enlightened voter (such voters never change governments) could vote.
    There is no hope for Sri Lanka – particularly for those in rural areas apart from working as domestics in Arabia.. And they don’t even know it!

    Sirisena is the most incompetent, dangerous and unreliable 3 wheel driver the world has ever seen. He makes these sudden U-turns as if he enjoys such stunts. We don’t care if he does that with his own 3 wheeler and he was the only occupant and there were no other road users for miles around. But the fact of the matter is that there are many others like that and they are all being affected by his lousy behavior.

    There are passengers in his 3 wheeler, paying a lot of money get from here to there. There are other road users too, who are just going about minding their own business. What we have seen is that with his unexpected U-turns and other surprise maneuvers, all these sections are adversely affected.

    The worst thing is that he has no knowledge of the highway code. The other day in a TV interview, where a police officer was also taking part, the police officer lamented, ‘3 wheel drivers are the worst offenders of the highway code. They over-speed, overload and even overtake other vehicles on the wrong side”.

    Do you know what 3 WD Sirisena said? He replied in his tinny flat voice that we hate, ‘What do you mean by wrong side? Anyway, what is wrong with overtaking on any side if there is enough room to do so.’ Shows how much the man knows about the Highway code.

    The worst thing is the color changes he does on his 3 wheeler. Sometimes, it is blue, sometimes red, sometimes green. All that is done to fool the road users who are trying their best to avoid this crazy 3W driver.

    Who does this gas bag think she is, to issue orders on the country’s president.
    =
    True, she was paid by MI6 to oraganise the 2015 conspiracy with Ranil, but Sirisena has seen the reality of the plot he unwittingly participated in. Now he is taking steps to correct his mistakes.
    =
    This whisky guzzling bag of a woman is issuing orders, as if the people of this country love or care for her. But they spit at her face and she can’t get 50 people to a meeting at Atatnagalla.
    =
    So President Sirisena, just throh her bloody letter in the bin and work to topple this foreign government.

      T. DeenDong – Idiot, the people of this country still love and care for her despite her past weaknesses. CBK is no saint but she is a thousand times better than the tsunami hora, rapist, murderer, highway robber etc. You are wrong, we should thrust Gamarala Sillysena in the limbo of forgotten things!

      T Deendara,
      .
      She did not lot. If her government under FM Kadirgamar failed to get banner LTTE activieis, BP Rajapakshe or any others would never end up ele minating terror within the country.
      :
      What a BP you should be not to have studied them properly before coming to add your two cts worth.
      .
      If she should have been paid by them the collosal amounts being wasted by BP Rajapakshe are beyond all estimations.
      :
      Alone during 51-d conspiracy – the sums BP Rajakshes has wasted are above 2 billion of Dollars from the deposits.
      :
      All the mud slanging campaigns were there to tarnish her image, but thanks to her and late Venerable Sobitha Thero we got rid of BP Rajapapskeh not allowing him looting further.
      :
      But but Rajapakshes USED CONDOME – the incumbent President has now become part of Rajapakshes RACISM based politics – that will be the HENAHURA for this country.
      :
      Just for the destruction, that BP RAJATHAUMA AND BP SIRISENA should be beheaded bringing to galle face green. I now regret Americans to have executed SADAMA hussaine, when considering the size fo the harm these ziamesian twins done to this nation.

    Judging Constitution some times have different meaning to see the authenticity it must be presented to the number of people instead of one man decision that is why the parliamentarian members are for, if not failure and imaged it is a pavementarian decision. The Identity one man mind is questionable and expression of lost, responsibility.

    Bandaranayaka Family is a curse for this country.
    When Lee Kuan the ex-PM of Singapore was studying in Cambridge this Bonda was at Oxford,
    Singapore and Sri Lanka are both multi-ethnic countries look today the situation.
    Singapore people enjoy almost European style life today and among the 200 best universities in the world, Singapore is in 6th place a country minus natural resources.
    Here these modayas love to take back this country to 1st BC.

        @ Taraki

        Sinhala press since 1956 initiated communal riots and also Buddhist ayatollahs this is your press freedom here.

        In Singapore, a racist Chinese opposition leader stayed in prison until his death ,Lee knew what is right and what is wrong.

        Remember the speech of Big Nose J R Jayawardena when Tamils were butchered and burned alive by your father & grandfather?

        …IF THEY (TAMILS ) WANT WAR I WILL GIVE THEM WAR …

        This was repeatedly broadcasted in media every 15 minutes to encourage massacre.
        of Tamils after all this JR was the son of a Cheif Justice.

        Remember the ANTI-TAMIL articles of so-called Chief Justice Hema Dissanayake in Davasa and Sun once is this the press freedom you want?

        Do you know the Davasa group owners daughter was blasted into pieces in a bomb blast at Flower road KARMA for encouraging massacre of Tamils ..finally this group was shut down by Srimavo though they support her?

        If Lee had followed Sinhala majority phobia Singapore would have been like a small fishing village with crimes in Asia today.

        Use your carrot brain to think what is right .

        Soon all of you should march for the order of Chinese if protest their gun will talk will you call them Chinese Terrorists? Half of the country is under Chinese rule soon they will take the entire country.
        He hehe you can not share the power with Tamils in this country but ready to accept Chinese command ..China is using Debt-Trap policy to take all of you no shame ???

        Soon Sinhala mothers will search for Chinese bridegrooms.

        Cheers

    What is Communalism in Sri Lanka?
    (Reference to former President Chandrika ‘s letter to present President Sirisena)
    SLFP, SLPP, UNP all three are major Singhala racist parties. The Singhala only Act by SLFP, the killing of thousands of Tamils by SLPP (Mahinda and his brothers Gotha & Co) during their rule 2005 to 2015, 1983 Black July riots during JR period and other communal riots after Independence and several Massacres of Tamils and killing of journalists during this period of rule. They want to come back to continue what was left over. These are clear evidence to prove all three are communal parties. They introduced standardization policy in education to deprive the best Tamil students from entering university. They removed the Practical exam at A Level because there were no labs and schools in Singhala rural areas. A student who cannot dissect a frog becomes a doctor and does surgeries. If a minority Tamils speaking people fights for their rights that were deprived after independence in 1948 but hey were defined as Communal party. They used mobs to attack them. What a racist view by Majority community!! Most are coverts by Portuguese. Their names proves it. The Singhala language contains 80% Tamil words and few Portuguese words. Example are Janthipathiya, Manthirithuma, Sengkol, Pirathana, Kulama, Ganga, Pradesh Sabah, Alavnagu, Alumariah, Cusini Aruthapola etc etc
    As said by Sumanthirn (TNA) in the Parliament it is the democracy of the Majority people and with no respect for the minority. It’s NOT the government by the People, For the People and To the People They promise to provide the rights of minority but never keep their promise. They sign international pacts never about honor. They use Singhala majority Judiciary to dance to their tune.

      Stupid Donkey Pon Kulendiren,

      Was the LTTE the Government of the People by the People for the People? Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar from it as can be.

      Sumanthiran, Sampanthan et al are the usual Tamil misleaders. The minorities are doing very well (not withstanding pockets of poverty); Muslims are the richest community in Sri Lanka and followed by the Sri Lankan Tamils (the eternal cry babies who have made a good business out of it).

      You Tamils always blame the Sinhalese for everything. When you get the opportunity, you guys just cant do the job. Useless lot.

      The recently appointed Tamil Governor of Northern Province is yet another disappointing example. He has kicked off by making anti Buddhist remarks. Not a good start as usual.

      El Presidente should have appointed Mrs Charles as the Governor. That woman was a capable Tamil administrator.

    .

    Let assume for the moment that My3′ s revenge was highly instrumental on on the nemesis of Mahindha Rajapakshe in 2015,

    Why you the like ilk seen far from the sense yet today ?

    Dont you think it was RAJAPAKSHES family rule cut their necks that way ?

    Siriseena was neither a stand-out leader nor a powerful profile.

    His education and the background was no secreut to the general public. He had been like the RIGHT hand of abusive Rajapakshe whatever the DAY LIGHT HIGH crime MR regime committed then.

    Even 18 Amendment -SIRISENA was equally accused of being complicit in high crime inclu at once voted for getting the UNANIMOUS amd passed.

    Rathupaswala Incident-where 3 youth were brutally caught by the BULLETs of GOTABAYA RAJAPKSHE – here too, SIRISENA had been suffering from any kind of PSYCHITRIC PROBLEMS, as overlooked in his profile either.

    But in that moment, EVEN a POLLELLAK could have been used to get rid of RAJAPAKSHE – meaning Rajapajshes had been enemies of the masses.; People were so fed up of RAJAPAKSHE and his sons. People thought they should have been predators in lanken politics.

    SWRD was so determined to defeat the UNP, he want to take revenge from UNP for not giving him the Premiership. He accumulated all opposition parties to his coalition (PATCHA BALAWEGAYA) mainly for the purpose of defeating the UNP. Before 1956 their was no RACISM existed as it does prevail today. The first race riot started in 1957, where mob devastated the the residencies of HINDU COLLEGE SITE, this was due to TARING the Sinhala “SRI” sign on vehicles. What steps did SWRD take to punish those responsible in his RAINBOW coalition?
