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.

      Buddhasisation has been going on for the last 70 years.
      According to Lord Buddha , Cultivating Lands , and Homes should be taken away, even the Hindu , Christian, and Muslim worshipping places are taken from the owners and ” GIVEN A ROOF “to Lord Buddha Statues, Boddhi Saplings and bogus Buddhism followers while the owners of these lands have no
      ” ROOFS , Nor , their LANDS TO CULTIVATE ” to feed their children.
      These are in the name of Buddhism.
      Who is the cause?? The Mahanayakes the Racists Politicians and the RACISTS ofcourse!!!!

    Unfortunately CBK isn’t a popular politician in the country.

    She doesn’t have influence over masses so she’s started bullying the president.

    She must not support RW’s minority government to make drastic changes to the constitution & economic policies as there’s no mandate for that.

    It seems to be that she’s going to be hired by RW & his buddies, here & abroad to continue his political agenda & to make it win by hook or crook.

    Her attempt to command MS will result in MS becoming a member of the alternative party to the SLFP which has rooted reasonably well within short period unless retire from politics.

    She shouldn’t forget the fact that in LG elections this alternative party performed well to give a massage to the fake gg.

    It may be argued that parliamentary election & LG elections are different things but wise politicians may understand that it reflects people’s displeasure over what’s being done by meaningless gg.

      Minorities, together become a “smart” majority whether they are political parties or the citizens (including a segment of Sinhalese)

      This is the force that gave freedom to SL in 2015 and fought against Oct 26 coup, until making sure NO place in SL for an anti-democratic POWER-CHANGE!

        “No place in SL for anti-democratic power change”

        It should be corrected as below.

        No place should be there in SL for anti-democratic clinging in to power.

        2015 parliamentary elections made RW, the PM of a minority government because when 113 was required to stand alone, he scored only 106.

        That 106 was given for RW to go together with MS towards GG & to prosecute previous regime culprits.

        People witnessed GG to their naked eyes that one of them made a blunder by looting/helped looting the CB in broad day light, gg was no more.

        Where’s the credibility of your hero democrat, Fathima?

        Well, keep that aside

        What happened to previous regime culprits?

        They’re still free giving the impression to the masses that their hands are clean; you can’t help it.

        Oct 26 matters occurred in the context of that complexity.

        When people had mandated 2 to go together & later 1 left due to the other’s fault, doesn’t that mandate come to end?

        Is it democratically ethical for one to cling in to power without re-checking the mandate?

    Sri Lanka’s racist group is TNA.
    The divisive group is UNP which is hell bent on dividing Sinhalese and the country.
    President already had deals with both, for 4 years.
    There is nothing left to divide in the SLFP, as it was the President who betrayed SLFP and contested from its rival party, UNP against SLFP’s own Presidential candidate, a move of which Chandrika and a part of SLFP took pride of.
    SLFP’s leadership should be handed over to former President Mahinda Rajapaksa, rejecting Sirisena and Chandrika, both of who promoted Ranil and the UNP at the cost of SLFP. Chandrika did it against Mahinda in 2005 and Sirisena did it against Mahinda in 2015.
    Isn’t that ironic they both who were part and parcel of the ruination of SLFP shedding crocodile tears and accusing each other now?

      I am really worried about you and your former president , former fake PM and current fake OL (O/L. horse riding). TNA is racist group. Mahinda Family is graciest group. Can you tell us which political party he wants to be a member SLFP or SLPP?

        Blaming CBK will not help for Old King having lost his majesty. He didn’t want SLFP. He has his family party for two years, waiting for him. He happily moved there. But it is the UNPyers killed that setup. It was Karu and Ranil who whipped him in Slap Party and chased him back to SLFP.

        There is a talk of CBK coming back to parliament through UNP. Her presence in UNP will not do anything great. People can see her only as SWRD’s daughter. She is not going to bring even 1% vote to UNP by being with in UNP. They voters are fed up. If there is a sector as SWRD’s socialism, she had to come through out of UNP to collect that votes. People will recognize her then. She probably not interested in UNP’s PM or EP seats. If she stands for EP, associated with UNP, she may do better than Ranil or Vaalaiththodam Jr. Everything of January 2015 can be recreated with her. Even Sampanthar, Anura Kumara wouldn’t give a bit of problem. For that to happen, 19A has to be interpreted in the way Dr. NJ explained. He said neither CBK nor Old is coming under the term “President” in the sense of 19A. They were president of before 19th amendment, under 1978 constitution. He says 90% of the job’s authority is moved out. So the definition off 19A doesn’t go with the definition of 1978 Constitution. She may then beat Old King, if he stands opposing her.

        But that’s all only fairy tale. So, what UNP can do is losing one seat. They lose one seat and bring her to parliament and allow her to sit in opposition. She would be having UNP ticket but she would claim she is still SLFP. This will match with Old King who is a Slap Party member sitting in the opposition party leaders chair only claiming that he is a SLFPyer. By this UNP may lose one seat. But they can have about 21 SLFP members organized on their side. This will not give any benefits for UNP on voting Budget like things. They have to go with the opposition members, TNA on those. But if they have established a possible a 2/3 they can just tweak constitution to play with the “party member” count in one shot. Then the SLFPyers can vote to any side but the party cannot punish them. Than can just an election law or even a 21A to constitution. Then they do whatever they want and close the loop holes and conduct the election. CBK will have a team. Old King will have a team. Ranil or Vaalaiththodam Jr. will have a team. But New will be gone forever, unless Slap Party absorbs him with them.

        I don’t know what his party is. He says he is SLFP while supporting both SLFP and SLPP.
        Before general elections in 2015 August, the entire country pleaded Mahinda to contest from a new party, not from UPFA where Maithri has the upper hand. He didn’t listen and ended up being Maithri’s slave. But people stayed with him, stuck like glue. Much later, in late 2016, Basil formed the SLPP.
        And again after 4 years, in October/November 2018, he fell into Maithri’s third trap after publicly joining SLPP (even for publicity) under whose advice I don’t know for sure, but whoever who was his adviser, it was pre-planned with the knowledge of Maithri, as it made Mahinda a captive of Maithri, as long as the latter is the President.
        Anyways, to be honest, just like the majority of ordinary public – Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims, I am fed up with current political parties.
        I want the next President to be a genuine Buddhist who would transform immorality into morality and individual self-interests into greater common good by following ancient practices of justice, fairness, compassion and kindness to all beings.

          Champa,
          What do you mean by Entire country? Which country you are referring? Over 50% of the population voted against Mahinda in presidential election in January 2015.

          “Much later, in late 2016, Basil formed the SLPP.”
          Is it Basil who formed SLPP. Who was the chairman of SLPP? Some one told me it was GL peries SL National Peoples Front relaunched as SLPP and still GL Peries is the chairman.
          “I want the next President to be a genuine Buddhist”
          Do you think Mahinda is a genuine Buddhist? Do you think the following are the characteristics of genuine Buddhist: Cheat, Lie, Murder, Corruption

      However your greatest honest leader windbag Wimal Sangili Karuppan Weerawansa is the only liberal, unifying force within this island who was willing to sell himself for a price. Dr Mahinda bought him cheap and from the advance Mahinda set Wimal a small enterprise which is known as National Freedom Front (NFF).

      If TNA was racist, the TNA MPs wouldn’t have battled against the recent constitutional coup. They gave their best to uplift democracy without bowing down to cheap offers as your masters MR and MS did. You only need TNA for your advantage, at other times call them a racist. Shame on you man!

      Do you expect Tamils to kowtow to Sinhalese?
      When your great-grandfather poured petrol and set fire on Hindu Koyil priest in Panadura then dance around the wailing priest till he was barbecued. when this story was told among Tamils women 5-year-old Prabaharan was there and rest is history.

      Today 1000 s of kids in N-E are growing asking what happened to my father, mother, sisters, and brothers and eyewitnesses are daily telling them what Sinhala cardboard soldiers have done. Do you think these kids will keep quiet?

      It was Barrister Ponnampalam Ramanathan went to London by submarine during 2nd world war without fear to negotiate independence for this cursed land hehe he one grade 8 educated rubber control department clerk was elected as the first prime minister who sows the seed of racism and flourished by Bandatanayak family.

      Asking legitimate rights is racism for your carrot brain and your political jokers who are fooling village Sinhalese since independence.

      Not a Sinhala political party will capture power without talking against about Tamils this is the true shame.

      When LTTE was at their peak ran away to the UK applied for refugee now barking here.
      Coward where were you when this land was occupied by IPKF?
      Why no noise about China is engulfing this cursed land Coward?
      In the South, babies look like Chinese.

        1958 ethnic riot was a result of political extremism.
        If Prabhakaran became a barbarian by seeing one man dying at the hands of extremists, how many Sinhalese could have become barbarians by seeing him cutting heads, bellies, hands and limbs of Sinhalese civilians, young Samaneras, pregnant women and children in border villages and other areas and blasting bombs in buses and trains full of children and people which went on 30 years non-stop?
        Over hundreds of thousand Sinhalese children in the South, including the children of slain military personnel, grow up asking what happened to their fathers, mothers, siblings, uncles, aunts, grandfathers, grandmothers and friends.
        The kids in North and East should ask their parents why didn’t they do anything to stop Prabhakaran from being killing innocent civilians and recruiting Tamil child soldiers and Tamil women suicide cadre to sacrifice their lives.
        They should ask Tamil politicians as to why they didn’t make any request to the United Nations to stop powerful countries from supplying arms and ammunition to Prabhakaran to kill innocent civilians for 30 years.
        Tamils should tell their kids that our military did their duty to eliminate LTTE to save Tamils and Muslims in the North.
        In record, they have saved the lives of 300,000 Tamils who were used as a human shield by Prabhakaran.
        If our military didn’t end the battle against terrorists in Nanthikadaal, Prabhakaran would have killed all those 300,000 innocent Tamils in one blast, to put the blame on our military.
        Tell those Tamil kids that they were lucky, our military won the war. If not, no one would have been there to tell or listen to stories.
        I was very much in Sri Lanka during IPKF and LTTE barbarism and never ran away in fear of them.

          Champa I am a witness of the 58 riots being a resident of Colombo. Moreover I saw how the refugees were housed in class rooms of Royal College when I went back to school when the riots were brought under control. Like riots in 1977 and 1983, riots of 1958 was state sponsored. The then prime minister SWRD refused to take action to control it and it was left to the then governor general Sir Oliver to take charge. Read the book Emergency 58 written by Tarzie Vitachchi for details. The fact that none of the Sinhala perpetrators were brought to justice nor Tamil victims were compensated shows the hand of the government. For your information IPKF never stationed outside north and east (not even in Sinhala areas coming under Ampara electorate). Stop distorting the truth. Fortunately the then president JR cowed down to India and did all what they wanted. Had he not done it and Sinhala people started trouble, they would have moved down to other provinces to control Sinhala racists. It may be true that you never ran away from LTTE, but certainly you were hiding under the bed in fear of LTTE.

            Where did I distort the truth? Explain.
            My mention about IPKF was a reply to Cholan’s question “Coward where were you when this land was occupied by IPKF?”
            President JRJ took a brilliant decision by letting Rajiv Gandhi to station IPKF in the North and make them attack LTTE, the terrorist outfit which was produced, trained and nurtured by Gandhis themselves.
            At the time no Sinhalese soldier was killed. To my mind, IPKF lost about 1,000 soldiers.

              So IPKF stationed in N-E only you never worried, thus agree N-E is another country.

              Do you know when IPKF was here one Buddhist Ayotullah in Trinco was shot by Indians like a dog and dragged on the street not
              a single Sinhalese protest even in Colombo? The IPKF buried this Ayatullah in a forest,
              Don’t you feel shame when your so-called sovereign land was occupied by Indians and ran a parallel administration against JR & Premadasa governments?
              When Vietnam was occupied by US hundreds of Buddhist monks went on self-immolation in front of US embassy there hehe he not a single Ayotulla couldn’t do this in front of Indian Mission in Colombo modayas were pissing with fear.
              Today Chinese are running this cursed land but no protest.??
              How many of your relations have given birth babies resemble Chinese in SL?
              Since 1956 all massacre of Tamils were state-sponsored LTTE was born because of this full stop.

                Why should Sinhalese protest when IPKF fought against LTTE in the North and East?
                Did a single Tamil protest when Prabhakaran killed Sinhalese?
                Why do you only talk about IPKF killing 1 Buddhist when Prabhakaran massacred 33 young Buddhist Samaner priests with Swords who were travelling in a bus in Aranthalawa?
                Even then Sinhalese Buddhists were patient letting the government to defeat terrorists. If it was not for Buddhism, over 74% of the Sinhalese who are the majority would have ended terrorism a very long time ago.
                LTTE was born against caste system in the North.
                Later, Indian politicians brainwashed Prabhakaran to massacre Sinhalese and cause a fear psychosis among Sinhalese leaders to get a separate state in North and East.
                But when Prabhakran started killing Tamil politicians one after another, and finally killed Rajiv Gandhi too, India got their fair share of terrorism from the very man they trained and provided with arms.

                  It was Lakshman Kadirgamar who got 33 important countries to ban LTTE.
                  The last time when I checked Lakshman Kadirgamar was Tamil.
                  Douglas, Karuna, Pillayan, ….. and many who opposed LTTE were and are Tamils too including VP.

                    IPKF was not a foreign invasion. It was India’s offer to fight against their own milk baby, Prabhakaran, who turned out to be Tamilivorous and Indianvorous.
                    Not a single Tamil protest against Prabhakaran.
                    If they did, they could have persuaded the United Nations at the time, to stop large scale of arm supplies to Prabhakaran which was the easiest thing LK could have done. All the countries which proscribed LTTE were the same countries that allowed terrorist supporters to collect funds and engaged in human, drug and arms smuggling to continue the existence of LTTE.
                    Douglas, Karuna, Pillayan are equally responsible for Prabhakaran’s massacring innocent civilians.

          You can sell your statistics among your modayas or ganja mate.

          LTTE never jumped from the sky just in one day it is the result of the massacre of Tamils by your great grandfather. grandfather,, father and you ..he he he Buddhists will not break an egg during sill but the butchering Tamils and burning alive is accepted to Buddhism.

          LTTE simply used your own medicine to teach you a lesson ..Coward where were you
          when they were at their peak hiding under bed hugging your partner.?

          Coward ran way to the UK and live as a refugee vomiting here.

          Can you go to Trafalgar Square and talk against Tigers? if you have backbone do it today
          within minutes you will be surrounded by Tamils and pelt stones.

          Where was your security forces when Tamils were butchered since 1956?

          Today Tamils not only here but also telling their children what you all did to Tamils since 1956.

          Be ready to pay a big price next time not a single country will support your government.

          It was the Tamils who have taught an unforgettable lesson to the 4th largest army in the world IPKF the death of Indians soldiers was much bigger than Indo -Pak or Indo-China war.

          Go to any places of worship of Hindus, Christians, and Muslims you can feel the feeling of peace and tranquility go to a Buddhist Vihara you can see the paintings of burning a man..cutting a man ..blood flow ..so nothing surprises you Sinhalese behave like animals.

          If you think what your family and others have done to Tamils since 1956 is right then the same medicine given to you by LTTE is correct.

          I repeat the young Tamils now growing in N-E are with questions about their kith and kin. there are eyewitnesses to tell them about the barbaric behavior of Sinhala cardboard army till the foreign help arrive these jokers were pissing inside trouser.

            Distorting the truth about LTTE to show that the cause was Sinhalese won’t take you anywhere.
            The history of LTTE says that Prabhakaran was sick of Tamil caste system which is the reason he killed almost all leading high caste Vellalar Tamil politicians and finally Rajiv Gandhi too.
            If Sinhalese was the reason, why did he kill Tamils and Indians?
            Prabhakran didn’t kill Sinhalese at first.
            What was notable was his killing of Jaffna Mayor Duraiappah in 1975 and killing of 13 soldiers in 1983 which was the reason for UNP government-sponsored thugs attached to Premadasa, starting riots in Colombo to subdue and divert the fury of Sinhalese directed at President JRJ.
            At the last phase of war, Prabhakaran didn’t swallow the cyanide capsule but waited for foreign countries such as India, US, UK, Norway, Sweden and South Africa which allowed their soil to train LTTE terrorists, smuggle arms, humans and drugs and collect ransom, will come and rescue him. What a betrayal to Prabhakaran, after promoting LTTE terrorism for 30 years! If those countries tried to take Prabhakaran to War Crimes Tribunal instead of promoting LTTE terrorism, hundreds of thousands of lives could have been saved.

            Nowhere in the world terrorists are petted. In order to protect the right to life of other law abiding citizens, terrorists should be eliminated.
            How many times in UK, France, Belgium and some other western countries killed armed gunmen on the spot when they randomly start shooting at people?
            The importance of the defeat of LTTE terrorism to save the lives of Tamils in the North and East should be explained to innocent Tamil kids and youth so that they will never be able to lure to take up arms.
            There is a move again to resurrect terrorism using various forms. Therefore, the government and the military should be vigilant and nipped such attempts in the bud.

      Champa, if TNA is racist, then all the political parties except LSSP & CP during the period 1948 to 1963 are racists. Demanding justice is not racism, in which case Gandhi, Mandela and Martin Luther King are all racists. Sri Lanka has been ruled by UNP and SLFP in turns and both have passed discriminatory legislations, carried out discriminatory practice and sponsored violence against Tamils. Your arguments will only receive accolade in a Sinhala racist forum and not in a fair society.

        Gandhi, Mandela and Martin Luther King, all three of them fought for the rights of majority people.
        Mahatma Gandhi fought against British colonization, Nelson Mandela fought against apartheid and Martin Luther King fought against segregation of Black people.
        TNA is not fighting for their people. They are demanding a separate state in the North for 11% of a population, when half of them live, study and work out side North. They are demanding that their race, which is Tamil, be treated exclusive and above the majority and demarcate a separate land for them, which is called racism by way of separatism.

    CBK,

    Sirisena’s only concern now is the second term. Remind him of the promises made. However, it does not mean much to Sirisena, as was demonstrated by his illegal and unconstitutional coup with the racist Mahinda and cronies. Sirisena, the Traitor, Quisling, Mala-Pereyhaya, Sevalaya and Pachaya will team up with the Devil and Mara, if he is promised a second term as President. Is Sirisena, a Sinhala “Buddhist”?

    Dear President Maithirpala Sirisena,
    .
    May I add my voice to that of former President, Mrs Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga?
    .
    I am a citizen of Sri Lanka. I was one of the more than 6.2 million persons whose votes you received on the 8th of January 2015. In fact, I may have been instrumental in swelling your tally by more than my single vote. I visited your Election Office in Thimbirigasyaya on a number of occasions, and conveyed many important messages to Mr Palitha Pelpola and Mr Kaunasena Hettiarachchi who were running your campaign. I still have their personal contact details, but not yours. I made no effort to meet a man as important as you, since I wanted no personal favours from you.
    .
    I was an enthusiastic supporter of yours, but that is no longer the case.
    .
    Why did I support you in 2015? It was because I was sick of Rajapaksa misrule, and I believed your promises of “Yahapalanaya”. Your pledge to do your best during one term and thereafter not contest again, I took seriously, and I liked your claim that you would be the servant of all. I also reposed great faith in Ven. Sobhitha Thero. Not so much, may be, in Mr Ranil Wickremasinghe.
    .
    However, it came as a great disappointment to me when you suddenly appointed Mr Mahendra Percy Rajapaksa as Prime Minister on the 26th of October 2018. He may have helped us finish our tragic civil war, but I didn’t like many of the things that he and his family had done. Their misdeeds should have been investigated by you; I had been led to expect that they would be prosecuted and the money looted from us all, would be recovered for the State. Nothing of the sort happened.

      Dear Mr. Edirisinghe,
      .
      Please have this translated into SINHALA and TAMIL so that you could publish it also on a SRILANKEN news paper or several of them in order many to be informed.
      CT is not accessed to many in the country.
      :
      And I don t think that the Prez would ever take us SERIOUS:.
      :
      Even if the case file against his SANITY being rejected for some reasons, I still believe, SIRISENA should be sent to a psychitric hospital for good. Their psycho analysis will surely prevent us from being fallen deeper.
      :
      All the very best for you further !

        Dear Concerned Sinhala Man,
        .
        When we desperately want to do something, sometimes we write too much; at other times we omit things that are necessary. It may be that occasionally, somebody hits on something that is just right. Pure chance.
        .
        Since you seem to think that this is about right, let’s work on it. When finally published, it can even have my National Identity Card number, because the public will take seriously only those comments for which responsibility is accepted.
        .
        Of course, even I can see now that there are a few obvious improvements to what I have put on. Let me now give my regular e-mail address, which I open twice a day:
        .

        .
        It may be that CBK still has a reasonable staff; perhaps they could send me Sinhala and Tamil translations professionally done by them, for me to personally sign. I will be able to check the Sinhalese version; I could get the Tamil version checked by a trusted friend, and send back two signed and scanned documents. These things have value only when properly thought out and vouched for.

          Dear Mr Sinhala man,
          .
          Thanks so much for your promt responses !
          .
          I really regret not being able to join you with translations AND the rest of the ground work that you may need getting them published on local news papers. I could but it will then delay for another few more weeks since I dont live in the country. Sooner is better if we could publish them on local news papers. I dont want us to wait even a single day, if all is ready to go for it.
          :
          Current response really made my day. Yes indeed I believe CBK office Staff should have someone to be able to help with the translation stuff properly. And it should also come from an authorised translators assuring the contents accordingly.
          :
          As far as my info are concerned lanken printed and visual media institutions would always stand on your way whenever you make effort to publish the kind of articles. Most of the press men are highly corrupted as clarified by the experts lately. Media mafia men are interconnected so the their pocket filling tactics would not allow any cross articles.
          :
          ALone making them clear about the need of publishing them will not be easy. However you may have most updated info about the details. And arguebly, if they would have been other way around, I wonder why lanken media failed yet publish them and share it with the readers yet ?
          :
          I also have following questions open regarding the Profile of Incumbent President
          .
          – the case which had already been filed by one fearless soul stressing the need of investigation of President’s Sanity- has NOW been rejected by the court FOR SOME REASONS; just calling that it was not a complete complaint. How can we work on that too now knowing and considering that the President’s actions has turned out be worsening ?

          • 2

            I agree that if this is worth translating, we might as well start now. Little point in delaying anything as simple as this. How digital technology will progress beyond this, I wouldn’t want to predict, but already that matters much less than the human will. Physical proximity matters not a jot.
            .
            For a Sinhala message of this sort, an authorised translation is hardly necessary. I’m not capable of doing it, but would certainly be able to put my signature on such a message after reading it. Nothing has reached my e-mail address yet. I know well enough the importance of confidentiality in this respect. I feel that I have little to lose by being open, but it may be different for others.
            .
            There are quite a few young writers who are bilingual. See the Sinhala section of CT. More than ou’d expect, but almost nobody reads them:
            .
            https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/grusha-andrews21-december-2018/
            .
            They ought to be published elsewhere, obviously.
            .
            I look at the Inbox of my gmail. I hope that there’s some response. There have been appeals on behalf of Charlie, the Labrador etc. They do some good, but I think that you and I agree that what is necessary are sharp personal observations displaying an individual concern.
            .
            A Tamil translation I will necessarily sign blindly, but there are people whom i can trust.

      Dear Sinhala_Man
      President Sirisena never had any principles, or his principles were not known to anybody, when he contested for Presidency in January 2015.
      His only aim was to humiliate and defeat Mahinda Rajapaksa to take a personal revenge for not being appointed him as the Prime Minister (as revealed by him.)
      The misdeeds “said have done by Mahinda” articulated in public rallies by Maithri and Ranil run-upto 2015 Presidential Elections seem to have no substance.
      After 4 years in power, they have proved now that those “stories” were used as a means to make people vulnerable and manipulate their votes. You are one of such victims in 6.2 million who voted Maithri.

        To my surprise, yet today, the bugger MR has the audcity to repeat that he did some good things DURING the short period. How shameless this bugger should have been ? Do you have a term to describe his nature ? We perfeclty knew irrespetive court orders the bugger during his ZIMBABWE STYLE rule, never make price reductions on Petroleum, even if prices on world market were that low. With Good governance govt being in power only they brought such price reductions, however, grass eaters were so manipulated so that nothing would easily enter their prion affected heads.
        :
        I think YOU GUYS have been given a chance to CRITICISE against those 4 years, but the loads the GG rule did it more than what RAJAPAKSHE misadmistration brought to the nation in terms aof again. Sure, long term projects started from previous govt passed to his and they were completed (like for exmpale road and other construtions), but do you at all think that bugger MR is PEOPLE s friendly man ?
        :
        I wish if the bugger would have been caught by the same accident the way Premadasa faced it, .. then things will surely go on proper tracts.
        He is the most abusive person the country ever produced. My wish is him to be charged with maximum and be cornered his for ever. His human association should be blocked so that the bugger be tamed by laws.

          Desperate Asinhalaya
          What “dishonesty” are you talking about? I you have forgotten, I never was one of you and never will.
          I was against President Sirisena’s tyrannical move to undermine the Constitution and the age old democracy, traditions and practices in Parliament and I voiced my strongest protest to his move even though it was Mahinda who was given a parachute appointment.
          Now the matter is over, with SC’s ruling that President’s move to dissolve Parliament was unconstitutional.
          My fight was in par with my principles and not in support of anybody.
          I remember you guys who, previously, attacked me mercilessly by calling names and various other ways, giving me “thumb ups” non-stop and praising me during 50-Day period. But I rejected all, saying that I am not writing for “thumb ups” and that I don’t give two hoot for them.
          If you think that I will take sides with UNP and TNA, you are very much mistaken.
          I don’t see any reason to withdraw my support to Mahinda.
          Therefore, please wake up.

    PART TWO

    Your single good action in 2018 was the appointment of Mr Nalin Perera as Chief Justice. I was very happy when the Supreme Court overturned your foolish actions which violated the Constitution; now, unfortunately, Mr Ranil Wickremasinghe imagines that people like me support him, personally.
    .
    It would be best if all three of you elderly men (roughly my age) retired for good and let younger people look after the affairs of this country. I also believe that while the three of you may disagree on certain matters, you have agreed not to “prosecute to the death” the misdeeds of one another. As many people seem to be saying in our own language, “eyala deal ekak karala”. Disgusting! Compare with Mrs Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga. I think that she was sincere in wanting to solve problems; unfortunately, Mr Velupillai Prabhakaran had become a psychopath. And with that psychopath, Mr Mahendra Percy Rajapaksa had done a deal to win the Presidency in 2005. You guys make me puke!

    That I have been absolutely consistent in what I’ve been saying is something that you can easily check on; having said all that, to sign this off with a pseudonym only would be cowardly. However, I shall submit this using my usual pseudonym.

    Yours sincerely,

    MS has unabashedly attempted to join forces with the MR-team and SLPP to contest upcoming elections. A group of SLFP Organisers have written to MS against this calling it ‘racist’. (The use of ‘racist’ here is somewhat colloquial – they meant the language/religion-divide.)
    Copies were sent to CBK and present office holders of SLFP. CBK says that 136 Organisers support the gist of the letter.
    We implore MS to listen.

    Appakaraya is only a backboneless tree crawling worm. He cannot stand alone. He is looking for a butter Fly to partner. His confession in New York to Sinhala audience that he conducted the war in 2009 was naivest comedy. This will not release him from his War Crimes on the eye of the IC; neither of the Old Royals and his general committed on Tamils. That is another issue.

    All what he now trying to do is, by saving Old King from local cases, he is seeking help from Old King to save him from IC. This guy is the Sinhala Chauvinist did the biggest damage to Tamils equal to Don Stephen and Old King. A war Criminal is appointed as Chief of Staff of the Rapist Army. This appointment alone is clearly showing that they are planning to stage another Genocide episode in North and East. They appointed the worst criminal in the country as governor of East. Hakeem is the Higher Education minister. That will be more than Badiudeen’s standardization. Most of these are done by Old King, remote controlling the crawling worm New King.

    Though he is willingly accepting on his name the Genocide Old King Committed on Tamils, he is not accepting the recent riots on Muslims by Old King. He is accusing Old King for that.
    New King blamed Darga Town and Digana riots on Old King. But now he is using Muslims as the baton to charge Tamils, not realizing he is being the snake for the charmer Old King. Mainly they are targeting once again on Tamils’ education because the severe defeat they faced in SC during the Coup. But Muslims Modayas knows too well that will they face Old King in one year.

    CBK is on her own agenda. She had told the SLFP rebellions to vote only for 20A and Constitutional change is not necessary. CBK is reminding 2015 to New King. TNA has to remind CBK the promises given as “100 days” by CBK on the Common Candidate.

    It’s time that CBK plays a role in protecting the SLFP from the racist faction of it that wants to join SLPP. The SLFP (New Wing) should dissociate from the Rajapaksa clan and stooges.
    The National Parties UNP, SLFP, SLPP, JVP and Leftists should produce policies that they will implement when they get in to POWER. One of the policies should be on Racial Reconciliation. They all should be involved in making the New Constitution that’s suitable for the 21st century.

    SLFP MPs don’t have any mandate for a constitutional change because the betal leaf never vouched for a fedaral constitution. Public can remember how CBK krd the country with immense, horrendous frauds. Two hour supply of electricity was the exemption. Businesses were dwindling to the abysmal levels. Wayamba election was an unprecedented milestone. The rest was spoken by Victor Eye – one in his best seller. Democracy is to enshrine the majority’s will in the proposals. Here the majority eats the humble pie as always constitutionally and religiously. Only fedaralists are termed as experts in Ranil’s nomenclature.

    It is difficult for me imagine the effect the said letter might have on President Sirisena. He seems trapped in his own machinations! That he was even thought fit to be a president baffled many.

    Dear CBK, You met the President at the SWRD’s memorial ceremony but did not speak a word. Now you have started writing to us as if we don’t know anything about what’s going in the country. This is a bit hilarious because the majority Sri Lankans are much more ‘informed’ than you and your organizers.
    You conspired against MR and and the SLFP is in trouble. It may disappear from the electoral map after the next major elections. If Pohottuwa has a good plan for the country, that will be the new political attraction.
    The UNP will also face a similar test at the next election and there will be a ‘Pohottuwa’ type revolution within the party after major elections. That will put the current UNP on a life support system until the plug is pulled out eventually.
    RanilW, and CBK may be still alive to see these changes if the SL life expectancy indicators are correct.

    EGO, EGO, EGO: She herself gives GARU and HiTAPU JANADHIPATHINI. Both the NGO-MAFIA and SLPP wants Maithripala to quit. But, Ranil says LET US THIS TIME HAVE THE SAMUHA AANDUWA or SABHAGA RAJAYA. I JUST WANT TO BE THE PARTY LEADER. Ranil knows that PENTHOUSE RAVI wants the PM post. that is why PENTHOUSE RAVI wanted LOTTERY BOARD. If Bagawanthalawa Tea Estate comes under him, he will buy it. I hear Americans are ready for TEA estates too.

    This Article is wrong. Mahinda Rajapakse is not coming to SLFP , because he waantss to block vote for his, CBK doe snot like it. So, it looks it is the same game. Ranil is playing the game of the FOX which says, I could not get the EP, so I abolish it. Mahinda Rajapakse says, to Maithripala it is you who destroyed me. so, what happens you have to go. IT is my brother and My son President and PM are. Even if my brother comes, I have told them so. On the other hand, VIYATHUN says ” ane, apiwatha ganna keewa, Den eh gena Kathawak wath neha”. Maitripala says, from today, I have to look into that too. He says, even todate, the Embassy phone rings and they instruct me.

    On the otherhand, Embassy had phoned andasked Maithripala “Are you going to buy Air craft Carriers from Russia to which Maithripala Had responsed “We don’t have money but we can buy a wheel or two”. The Embassy had responded saying ” NO I am not talking about Tanks, or building moragahakanda, and I am talking about Sea going war ships. Maithripala HAd said ” No we are not because Mangala said “We did not get that much Money”. Embassy was very angry but did not say much.

      JD! JD!
      Hang on a sec…. After reading your fantastic bed time story , the phone calls from the Embassy and so on…. Look there’s a good chance for your Medamullana Sharks to come back to life as long as the big Trump colluded with Russia.
      Americans are suffering because of the Senate financial blockade.
      There’s been a theory that Big T has secret dealings with Russia , so too the secret dealings of the other Red brigades.
      See the connection.!!!!!!
      Udayanga the MIGs and the Ukranian connection ??? Where is he now ? being Protected by whom ??
