CBK Re-Enters Active Politics

Former President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga has re-entered active politics while accepting the Sri Lanka Freedom Party’s ( SLFP) Chief Organiser post for the Attanagalle electorate.

Kumaratunga’s Chief of Staff Justin Navaratne said today that Kumaratunga will function as the SLFP organizer for Attangalle with immediate effect.

The post of Attanagalle SLFP Chief Organiser had remained vacant during the recent past. Arjuna Ranatunge who was appointed as the SLFP organizer of Attanagalle vacated the post after a brief stint to contest the last parliamentary polls under the UNP ticket.

ChandrikaKumaratunga however has been playing a very active role in politics in the recent past and is considered as the main protagonist in convincing Sirisena to contest the last Presidential polls.

Quite alive to the threat posed by CBK Rajapaksa who was President at the time had went on to say that it was not Ranil or Sirisena who posed a threat to his throne but CBK.

According to reliable sources within the SLFP, President Maithripala Sirisena and CBK will jointly conduct the party’s campaign at the forthcoming provincial council polls, slated to happen at the end of the year or early next year.

A SLFP MP said that some reports appearing in the media that Sirisena and former President Rajapaksa will lead the SLFP campaign was false.

The SLFP MP said that the Sirisena – CBK combine was another attempt to keep Rajapaksa out of SLFP politics.

Already the new SLFP General Secretary Duminda Dissanayake has said that the SLFP will contest alone under the “Hand” symbol while leaving the coalition UPFA.

In this backdrop other UPFA leaders such as Wimal Weerawansa, Dinesh Gunewardena, Vasudeva Nanayakkara and Udaya Gammanpila are planning to create a separate political entity. They are to be supported by group of SLFP MP’s who are loyal to Rajapaksa.

However, what stance Rajapaksa will take on this new political development is not yet clear. The SLFP MP said that Rajapaksa has not yet given a definitive answer to a request made by his loyalists to lead the new coalition.

Both Sirisena and CBK have been accused of dividing and weakening the SLFP. However, according to the SLFP the duo this time will make a significant effort to build a strong SLFP and mount a significant challenge against the UNP.

    Whisky Madam can’t go beyond Benthara River.

    Even Colombo Elite despise her although she sucked up to them big time to get rid of Rajapaksa.

    It is obviously Aththanagalla or bust even for the hyphenated ones……

      This is a disgraceful comment from Sumanasekera.

      If there was anyone in the highest saddle who disgraced that position – either through his own actions or that of his kith and kin – it was Rajapakse.

      Sumanasekera unfrocks himself as someone with a nauseating grudge. Not a grudge against the unacceptable – No, No -but a grudge against those who are privileged without having robbed the country to be so.

      He will never understand the likes of CBK or Ranil because he carries a chip on either shoulder and a spare in his pocket as well.

      CT please – be informed well before going to attack any personalities.
      I really dont think CBK would return to politics so long her children asked her to be away from active politics. These are just rumours: If she was not there, country and nation would have further been looted by Rajapakshe to this date. Rajapakshes looted almost everything.

      Dear Former President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga

      RE: CBK Re-Enters Active Politics

      First of all, thank you for being an integral part of the team that came up with engineering the common (sense) democratic transformation from the Medamulana Family Dictatorship of Mahinda Rajapaksa and his cronies,MaRa MaRa Chatu MaRa and Cronies.

      It is good that you re-enter politics from the SLFP. This will certainly dilute the credibility of MaRa MaRa Chatu Mara and his cronies. Thank you.

      Keep Mahinda Rajapaksa, MaRa, out.

      Let us not forget that the most important goal, after the defeat of Velupillai Prabakaran, another dictator, is the defeat of MaRa and his cronies.

      MaRa MaRa Chatu MaRa has no shame.

      Still there are too many Modayas, Mootals and Fools, with average IQ of 65, left who think MaRa is Raja. Ask them to talk to Field Marshall Sarath Fonseka, and kick the MaRa habit.

      Let us all sing:

      MaRa MaRa Chatu MaRa
      MaRa MaRa Amana MaRa
      MaRa MaRa HoRa MaRa
      MaRa MaRa Dhushana MaRa

      Then finish by singing the Jaya Mangala Gatha in the original Pali, on the defeat of MaRa, Mara and his cronies.

      Based on the Book of Protection (Paritta Sutta) from the Pali canon, the Jaya Mangala Gatha is sung here in a rare recording by the Mahabodhi Society of India in original Pali. The Jaya Mangala Gatha is a chant recommended by the Buddha to destroy negativity and to generate auspiciousness. It proclaims the 8 major victories of the Buddha which are:

      1) Victory over Mara ( MarRa)
      2) Victory over the demon Alavaka (Wimal)
      3) Victory over the wild elephant Nalagiri (Udu Gamanpila)
      4) Victory over serial killer Angulimala (Gotabaya)
      5) Victory over the evil intentions of Cinca who sought to defame (Pavitra)
      6) Victory over the haughty brahmin Saccaka (Vasudeva)
      7) Victory over the serpent king Nandopananda (Susil)
      8) Victory over the false views of Brahma Baka (Yapa)

      English translation on the Defeat of MaRa, Mara

      Creating thousand hands, with weapons
      armed was Mara, MaRa seated on the trumpeting,
      ferocious elephant Girimekhala.
      Him, together with his army of Cronies, did the
      Lord of Sages subdue by means of generosity and other virtues.
      By its grace may joyous victory be thine.

          There are 300,000 idiots who voted for Modawansam 2/2 =0, in the Colombo district.

          There are 425,000 idiots who voted for maRa, in the Kurunegala district.

          The average IQ of Modayas, idiots and Mootals is 65, in Lanka, the Land of native Veddah Aethho.

        Well said, Amarasiri. The Country owes a debt of gratitude to Chandrika. For saving the country from The Alugosuwas. Whatever have been her mistakes in the past we are obliged to forgive those on account of her Act of Mercy in January and August.

        It is also time for her rethink her allegiance to the SLFP. It is not the Party that it was. Sirisena was blackmailed into giving nominations to those corrupt politicians, and appointing MPs through National List, some of whom who were even rejected by the voters. How can such a person be entrusted to govern the country without supervision. Key Government Servants, Attorney General for example, are still sabotaging the Good Governance.

        Madam, the time has come to take into account the larger interest of the Country, than merely get sentimental about a political party subverted and beyond redemption. The path is right in front of your eyes. Take it. For the time being, you are the only person available to deliver the country from the Jackals, from wherever they are, even Polonnaruwa.

        Mother Lanka beseeches you not to abandon her at this juncture, critical to her future.

          “The Country owes a debt of gratitude to Chandrika”.

          There goes that Bandaranayake [Edited out] again. He should realize that personal favours of any kind do not count as doing general good to the country. These are totally two different things.His family may have benefitted in the past by their largesse -like Mervyn the Vermin who was once Anuras Sapatthu Podiyan being made a National List entrée to politics by Whisky Madam. So now, this fellow can thank his ‘Madam’ from the bottom of his heart if he wishes ,but the general public knows the corruption and mayhem she unleashed during her reign. In fact she set the trend for the continued mass corruption and abuse of power by JaraaPassa and his gang. In fact it is Whisky Madam who owes a debt of gratitude to the people for still tolerating her.

            My dear Athana Methana Gala (Rolling Stone?)

            Tread carefully my friend, before accusing some one you do not know of heinous crimes. CT editor please take note. You are a newcomer to this forum and the first to point an accusing finger at me.

            I never have and never will go behind politicians for their crumbs. I left Sri Lanka in 1981 resigning from a very respectable and fulfilling job in a Government Corporation, because the Minister instructed that I be denied the promotion that was due, and that it should be given to his crony who previously worked in his legal chamber. His life was violently ended 12 years later, on the instructions of Premadasa, as confirmed by the Presidential Commission.

            Within just 30 days I secured employment in Dubai, much better in every sense. My wife and son are with me but the larger family are in Sri Lanka. Up to now I have sent back to Sri Lanka over AED 1,000,000 cash. I have no need to get my hands contaminated by associating with the run of the mill politicians of Sri Lanka. And I have lived a clean honest life, according to the teaching of the Holy Quran and the Prophet Mohammed, and Allah is my judge.

            What I said about Chandrika is true for the present. Rajapakse proved himself to be a highway robber. Sirisena, either voluntarily, or under duress, is navigating what seems to be the same path. I know that whatever her shortcomings, Chandrika will not plunder the wealth of the country, or deliberately set out to deprive the citizenry of a decent life.

            In January and August Chandrika was instrumental in salvaging the country from the marauding Medamulana Gang. Had she failed, the horror unleased would have been unimaginable. There is no other politician in Sri Lanka who has the capacity to launch the country on a progressive path.

            You have the right to disagree, but not to accuse me of crimes I have not committed.

            Go by the results. MaRa maRa Chatu maRa, is not in power now. Whoever, helped in that endeavor, whatever their previous backgrounds, should be thanked.

            Why did Whisky Madam pick Mahinda Rajapaksa, MaRa, as

            1. The Prime minister

            2. As the Presidential Candidate?

            Was there any deal , like MaRa had with VP paying Millions?

            These days MaRa and Gota are thowing mullions of stolen money from the people. Former defense secretary Basnayaka is supposed to have got a bagful, before he was replaced y HettiArachii. Is his bag is getting full as well?

            MaRa MaRa Chatu MaRa …Dhushana Mara…

            Very curious to know.

      Do you think Ranil, Siri, and Chandrika would support Hindia’s candidature for a permanent seat in the UN security Council?

      Is it good or bad for Sri Lanka?

      If Ranil, Siri, and Chandrika (one for all and all for one) decide to support Hindia aren’t you going to join hands with Champika, Uthaya Ganapathipillai, Wimal Weerawansa, Dinesh, Ramuuuuuuuuu, and other Sinhala/Buddhists to protest against their move?

      Ranil said enhancing bilateral trade with India would help his country reach the goal of generating one million jobs in Sri Lanka over the next five years.

      Is it true?

      By the way Uthaya Ganapathipillai is planning to introduce an indemnity bill to protect “war heroes,” as done thrice in the past.

      Well now there is a lot to chew.

        Dear Native.

        When the next generation of Vaikos, Nedus and Seemans go for Eelaam , your mates in the West , specially the Americans will support them.

        That is purely for Economic and Trade reasons and I am sure you are sharp enough to work it out your self.

        Just to give you a clue, America wouldn’t want two Debt Collectors with nuclear weapon capability calling on them.

        Tt is natural that Hindians will do anything and everything to get a permanent Security Council seat.

        And it is good.

        As for your mate Ranil, his tosses to the Elite are all hand crafted by himself to make the Elite feel good and distract them from what Sira is doing to Yahapalanaya.

        Specially in light of Sira going wild appointing Lansa , Muththa even DM’s darling son as a Deputy Minister, after Batalanda named him as a drug dealer..

        If you get time check the Hansard , and his put Ranil’s speech here so that the Yahapalnaa Elite can understand what is going on..

    Not having a good political leader is the bane of Sri Lanka. SLFP is the party formed by SWRD Bandaranayake who left the UNP for not being able to become the leader of that party 64 years ago. Bandaranayakes always had ambitions. Chandrika’s dream is to make her son Vimukthi the leader of SLFP. On the otherhand, Mr Sirisena wants his daughter Chathurika to become the leader of SLFP one day. Then there is Namal Rajapaksa and Chathura Senaratna. Every politician wants his/her children to do politics instead of getting a good education. Politician are ruining the country and at the end of the day ordinary citizens are a helpless lot. The lucky ones get opportunities to migrate to developed countries. The ones remaining in Sri Lanka should hope that they at least will be able to be reborn in another country other than Sri Lanka.

      “The ones remaining in Sri Lanka should hope that they at least will be able to be reborn in another country other than Sri Lanka.”

      According to Mahawansa, Sri Lanka, is the Dhamma Deepaya, Faith Island, where Buddhism will be protected for 5,000 years, and that Buddhas visited the Island 3 times.

      So you want the Sinhala Buddhist of Dhamm Deepaya to leave and be born in a foreign country?

      Why? The Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamils do not like the Dhamma Deepaya any more because of the Para-Politicians?

No. They will never be “BORN” in another country and hope not; because they do not know how to make their own country a good place to live. They proved it on August 17, 2015. Just see who and in what numbers they elected their nominees to represent them in the Legislature. They got what they asked for and they truly deserve.

    Two terms of presidential power (though she promised to abolish it in 6 months) and still won’t retire frm politics. I guess the hunger for power never goes away.

    Whilst it could only be a rumour, it is very possible that she steps in time to ensure
    that MR does not creep back via Local Council elections etc. She is a genuine SLFPer
    and must stand tall to prevent further break-up of the Family Party. MS has no push,
    except for his being the present President and giving way to UNP for his existence is
    a matter for consideration when the SLFPs distant future is thought of. MR trying to
    build on UFPA has to be curbed in time.

      “She is a genuine SLFPer”


      She abandoned the SLFP and went to Mahajana party in the 80s.

      She abandoned the party when i was at its weakest. Thats not what is called “genuine” in my books.

      The SLFP is not the property of her or Mahinda.
      They both think it is their personal property to do as they please. When there is lack of democracy within the party (equally true for UNP) how can you expect external democracy in the country?

      • 1

        SLFP was founded by a Christian named Solomon West Ridgeway Dias B who converted to Buddhism for the specific purpose of capturing political power. The SLFP has caused enormous economic and social degradation for Sri Lanka as a country. The Sinhala Only policy of 1956 made a frog in the well of the Sinhala race. The vast majority still are, after 59 years.

      CBK should be able to retire in comfort with the wealth she has acquired instead of returning to politics. Is her agenda to promote her son to keep the legacy going or is it the sheer greed for power she wants to hang on to?

      • 0

        Her Agenda is to ensure that every single Rajapakse from the Medamulana family is driven to the political wilderness for all time. She has many in the country sharing views with her and that includes some of MR’s senior Ministers – one being My3. There are many more. Do you recall Kudu Dimu stating in public “when the Pope comes there will be a new President” That was wishful thinking by one of the many Judasas in the Rajapakse team.

        CBK is fearless, determined and is pretty serious about what she wants done. The local equivalent of Maggie Thatcher – the Iron Lady. MR fears her the most.

    Someone who was found, by the Supreme Court, to have:

    3) failed to function in a manner consistent with the expectation of a Public Officer, much less as an Executive President,
    4) betrayed the position of trust bestowed upon her by the Constitution and by the People of Sri Lanka, and
    5) fined Rs.5 Million
    to be treated as if she is an elder “Statesman” speaks volumes about the Good Governance credentials of the present Administratqion – perhaps it has not dawned upon the Polonnaruwa School of Good Governance that the above conduct tantamount to dis-qualifying such a person from holding any Public Office ever!

    It is worth to mention that the Rule of Law, created pursuant to the Constitution of Sri Lanka, and, the executive power of the Prople of Sri Lanka, placed in the Executive President are duties that the holder of that Office should comply and uphold within his own conscience with a sense of integrity owed to the people.
    To do as she did was a gross abuse of power and, only a person without an ounce of self-esteem, can still continue to be making public pronouncements on matters political.

    [Edited out] is back. Heaven help Sri Lanka.CBK’S destroyed the Sinhalese,

    CBK became President with Ranil W as Prime Minister they bungled the entire military operations against the LTTE. She appointed her uncle as Minister for Defence and her nephew Rohan Daluwatte as the Military commander. This man had no military experience and would run off to see Sai Baba whenever there was trouble. She kept the war with LTTE dragging on and thousands of our Sinhala soldiers were brutally killed by LTTE. She had a fixed idea that it was not possible to beat the LTTE, same as with Ranil W. Ranil W kept trying to hand over the North and East to appease Prabahakaran. He even stopped a crucial military operation in 2001 where the army knew the exact location of Prabahakaran and were ready to take him out. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZWO5fWDikQ

    She recently in January engineered the downfall of the hero of the nation President Mahinda Rajapaksa by using the think tanks of the West and telling the people lies which have subsequently been proven to be baseless. She is so full of hatred and anger that it distorts her face where she looks like a Yakshani when she talks about MR. She may be harboring anger towards Sinhalese since her father and her husband were killed by Sinhalese. The Bandaranaiyake family has been a blot on the Sinhala people. It is a curse we have had to suffer for so long. I personally [Edited out].

    CBK will remain in politics until her son matures to become or take
    part in the Presidential or prime ministerial election in 2020, which
    ever position that will have more powers at that time .She will be nursing some districts from now onwards for her son but recent showing in Gampaha district is very disappointing as Arjuna Ranathunghe did not
    fair well against his brother Prassnna, tho’ CBK worked hard over there for Arjuna. It looks like Arjuna’s personal votes, voted him to
    power and additional votes of CBK were not there for him.

    However, she will not enter active politics for her personal glory.

    The People, nation and country of Sri lanka, will be lost CBK is enter into national politics of sovereignty, democracy and Independence of future by her engaged re-entry politics. Therefor she is rule and ruin Island 11 years family rule.

    How is that CBK run country with disable mother of family nepotism 11 years cost of poor Tax payers money! Sri lanka is not that private property of Tamil-origin Banadarakes family. Now she is working Tamil Federal state after regain power Tamil community by using by covered operation by politics of SLFP.

    Indeed SLFP has lost her political task once and for all by CBK actively involved politics since last January .
    The specially 2015 January 9th by elected M.Sirisena as President of SL, that CBK play key role of realigned right-wing forces under Right-wing leader UNP-RW.

    She was involved with the conspiracies to be overthrown behind the election 2015 January 9th foreign agent against Sovereignty nation.
    CBK is fourth generation of Tamil background decedent of Tamil Federalism by Banadaranaygam blood stream. She working day and night partition of Federal state divided Island with support of local reactionaries and US and Indian-RAW oriented projects.
    CBK is currently has accountability for crime against nation sovereignty by allied with UK US and Indian-RAW>

    I wonder how long before this marriage of convenience between Sirisena, Ranil and CBK will last. Knowing CBK’s taste for power a power struggle is inevitable in the not so long future.

    Secondly how short our memories are. How easily we forget that both CBK and Rajapaksa are Tsunami Horas. These two stole money donated for the welfare of the orphans who had nothing, simply nothing. How deplorably low these so called politicians of Sri Lanka are.

    And I still see so many are clapping their hands in glee at the annoucement of this Tsunami hora coming back to power.

    Needless to say we deserve what we get.

    CBK should be kept away from activities of the government. Her regime was very brutal and was a very dark period of the country. When she came to power she wanted to give a federal system of government to LTTE terror mater Prabhaharan. Remember what happened to Mulathiew army camp which left isolated even against the army’s advice. LTTE attacked and killed all of them overnight, close to 1400 soldiers. Then LTTE carried out series of attack by a code name of “Uneasing Wave” in all Vanni areas annihilated all the army camps. Soldiers without proper weapons had to sacrifice their lives at very tender age because CBK’s stupid leadership as the defense minister. Following the Vanni victory LTTE move to Paranthon and captured it overnight. Then attacked Elephant Pass and captured. Elephant Pass was defended throughout the thirty year war of terror until it fell to LTTE during CBK time. At Elephant Pass, some wounded soldiers have to die due to dehydration because LTTE cutoff water supply ahead of the attack. If you people did not loose your memory, Jaffna almost fell to LTTE, until late general Janaka Perera who was sidelined by the CBK had to use him to rescue the Jaffna. With the help from Pakistan MBRLs, Janaka Perara was able to hold onto Jaffna. It was very imminent fall of Jaffna to the LTTE till very last minute. If we lost Jaffna, almost 40000 soldiers would have killed by the LTTE.

    She has been a worst head of state in our country. She makes mess out of everything what ever she is going to do. You will see how she is going to do when she is going to negotiate with the TNA, former LTTE proxy. Her sister, Sunethra once said that CBK thrive with power. She need power even thogh she says otherwise. Have you heard any right thinking head of state in the world go out of the country and criticize the internal issue in front of the foreign audience except CBK. In near future our country will go through another worst period.

    Wait a minute, wasn’t the general consensus that EX-PRESIDENTS, RETIRED PRESIDENTS And those who lost PResidency should NEVER come back to active politics. Isn’t that why this lady preached and screeched about this year? What is this abysmal failures game here? wanting to come back to Parliament or trying to groom her reluctant but gentleman son in to take over the Aristocratic diminished reins of power where sadly to her changrin MR WON Attanagalla and will trounce CBK any given day in Gampaha or any district in Sri Lanka. Saadu Saadu for clinging to power instead of retiring and being a grandma in England. Wasn’t she the one found guilty of Water’s Edge corruption?

    You’re back! Congrats! We know you played dirty -very dirty, and bluffed the whole polity by diabolizing Rajapaksa’s great deeds. You were very jealous of Rajapakse!
    But, we understand that this is what politics is all about, and we will give it to you for being so dammed craftily clever. However, we are looking at you at this time to move the country forwards.

    So, enough of the high lies and subterfuges. Enough of the Indian dilly-dallying. Now is the time to do what is most right for our unique, ancient, and beloved Island.

    No pretences anymore : We will welcome it if you could take up all of Rajapaksa’s projects, and enhance upon them (the way he was going to do in his third term).

    So, quit the India land-bridge, and CEPA agreement. Maybe, do some of the port city. But definetely, put all our produces and products onto the ships to China!

    West won’t mind. But you always knew that. You can become our next Queen. Don’t worry, all will be forgiven.

    When I saw a poster of CBK for the first time when she contested for Prime Minister, I knew she will win. So, take my advise which I give for the second time: do a ‘face-lift’, loose some weight, have a different hair style. Look at politicians debating in the U.S now. They all look attractive to people. You are a latently good-looking woman so have that restored.

    i have been a reader of colombo telegraph for a year or two.comments about cbk coming to active politics has elicited cheap remarks which is uncalled for.every person has got some weakness and politicians are no exception as long as it does not affect the populace as a whole.while i am not a great supporter of cbk or slfp but i feel she is needed to combat the mahinda factor in srilankan politics.no doubt mahinda contributed to the victory against tamil tigers.but it was not done only by his family.others also contributed which has been conveniently overlooked.we cant blame any one because victors only write history.lakshman kadirgamar who strenuously lobbied hard for banning tamil tigers in west,ranil who was instrumental in cfa agreement in 2002 which weakened tamil tigers considerably have been forgotten.last but not least my request to commentators is dont resort to cheap comments and below the belt remarks which in no way enhance the reputation of this website.let comments be scholarly this will enhance the quality of this website.

    I would strongly recommend that ladies pushing 70 , who insist on raising their arms ,should wear long sleeves in order not to cause embarrassment to themselves and eyestrain to innocent viewers.

    The picture of fmr Pres appears to be photoshopped. Not fair journalism.

    Yippee! The girl is back in town.

    C B K come out to play,
    The moon doth shine as bright as day;
    Leave your supper, leave your sleep,
    And come with your playfellows into the street.
    Come with a whoop, come with a call,
    Come with a good will or not at all.
    Up the elephant, down the wall,
    A fifty-rupee maalu-paang will serve us all.
    You find the milk, and I’ll find flour,
    And we’ll have roti in half an hour

    ps: and don’t forget your underarm deodorant stick.
    pps: I have a qym subscription for you to get in shape.
