CBK-Sobitha To Tour Kurunegala Against MR

Chandrika Kumaratunga and Ven. Maduluwawe Sobhitha Thero, two of the main protagonists who ensured the January 08 polls defeat of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa is set to resume their battle to keep Rajapaksa at bay by mounting the stage in Kurunegala on August 08, the constituency former President is contesting the upcoming parliamentary polls.

chandrika-kumaratungaVen. Sobhitha Thero and former President Kumaratunga who have so far kept silent with regards to the elections will address a series of meetings organized by a number of civil society organizations and trade unions, which backed the common candidate at the January 08 presidential polls, starting from Kurunegala.

While the aim of the meetings is to educate the voters on the importance of choosing candidates with a clean slate, one of the organizers of these events said that choosing Kurunegala as the location for the inaugural meeting meant that it was an open challenge against Rajapaksa.

According to him several such meetings will be held within the Kurunegala district while plans are afoot to hold such public meetings in other parts of the country as well.

Although Ven.Sobhitha Thero had been reluctant to take part in such meetings earlier, the organizer said that the Thero had now given his consent.

Both Kumaratunga and Sobhitha Thero has openly criticized the decision taken by President Maithripala Sirisena to give nominations to President Rajapaksa to contest the polls under the UPFA banner.

In the backdrop of this incident, a dejected Sobhitha Thero vowed to remain silent at the upcoming polls while Bandaranaike had gone abroad for a lengthy holiday. Although Kumaratunga after the nominations said that she would make a public statement over the issue, she is yet to do so even after returning to the country four days back.

According to a close aide of Sobhitha Thero, his intention to actively engage in election related work once again has been sparked by Rajapaksa camp’s attempts to fan the flames of communalism and religious discord in an attempt to gain Sinhala Buddhist votes, mainly from rural areas.

According to this aide both Kumaratunga and Sobhitha Thero have had several rounds of talks since the former returned to the country.

However, both have decided not to get on the election stage of the United National Front for Good Governance (UNFGG).

The convener of the National Movement for Social Justice Ven. Sobhitha Thero in a recent media briefing had said that Rajapaksa, who had betrayed the masses on two occasions by creating a political culture of rampant thuggery, corruption and mayhem was again attempting to return to the political arena to continue his dirty game.

The Thero had said a corrupt, power hungry Rajapaksa was trying to take the masses for another ride and was shamelessly trying to make a comeback after being rejected by the masses at the last Presidential election.

The Thero had said that the people had a great responsibility in not allowing corrupt and discarded political elements to make a comeback.

    He has no strategy for the country other than using a strategy of communalism to get votes for his benefit and not the country. He has another strategy of embracing anybody when he is rejected by everybody. In this instance the world has rejected him with the exception of China. China is doing things for its benefit and they have a super guy in MR who has screwed -up our country for the benefit of China and himself

    I think Rajapakse’s outdated theory of fanning communalism and hugging China are over. He will get the final message delivered hard on the 17th and then lets see who Wimal and his gang of four will want to dance with.

      I am not sure if you are a Singhalise or Tamil but I am sure you are a Sri Lankan based on the contents of the message. Its shocking to note a good section of Sri Lankans DONT HAVE ANY GRATITUDE for a man who was a major part in bring back peace to this little paradise. Its time to be proud of your own son’s and daughters achievements and assist in the progress of Sri Lanka rather than slinging mud/false allegations and false propaganda to influence the innocent for the personal gain of some.
      Sri Lanka has the highest rate of Priest(Buddhist monks)that are directly involved in politics which is Ludacrist, they are not preaching the dhamma but chanting absolute garbage and creating confusion/un pleasantness and hearted. NOT SURE WHY THEY ARE IN THE SAFRON ROBES…its a disgrace to the Buddha’s teachings!

      SRI LANKA WE HOPE YOU DONT DIVIDE AND SINK BUT WORK TOGETHER FOR A STRONG BRIGTER TOMORROW.

        I keep saying this to people of your sort- you’re mixing up gratitude and apathy. Mahinda provided the political leadership needed to end the war. We’re all grateful (although you’re not going to belive that, since believing that everyone that doesn’t support him is an eelamist is a key belief you people hold). The problem is what he did after the war was over- the corruption and the abuse of power that no one before him had taken to the level he did.

        You, and others like you, advocate a strange form of gratitude which gives licence for abuse of said gratitude. By your logic, and I don’t mean to sound crass, if mahinda came and slept with your wife, you’d say “must have gratitude no” and ignore it. Do you see the problem we’re trying to highlight? Or are you now going to call me “brainwashed by the West” or “kalu suddek” or “eelamist”?

        Aiyo Wetside, ludicrous is it, not Ludacrist and that too you spell it with a capital ‘L’ just to make it ‘out stand’, not much to ‘under stand’ anyway or either way. Ammapa very funny.

        The gratitude to MR for winning the war was already shown when he was elected to be President for second term. Now what is this third term he tried to become President and lost, and again attempting a fourth time to become the country’s Prime Minister? This is man’s greed (thanhaawa) which MR must learn to let go if he is to attain freedom from worldly desires, gain peace of mind, and the longing for materialistic benefits not just for himself, but even for his family and cronies. As a Buddhist he must strive to improve his spiritual side and be a good example to fellow Buddhists and those rioters not ‘righteuos’ monks. What do you think?

          Booo

          The man from MEDAMULANA lost his thinking power towards the end of his term. His side kicks brainwashed him . He completely lost it they said and he agreed.
          He never thought about the consequences.
          That’s why I am saying he lost his thinking power. the result is what we all to see.

          He himself became greedy there was so much WEALTH to play with , so the hangers on benefited too by hook or by crook.
          The king was in deep slumber while the side kicks too pilfered as much as they can.

          When they lost the election they knew that they needed to cover up all the crimes and pilfering.
          So they again needed the man to fight for them.
          Thus the bus load of villagers and supporters were brought to show the Brainless Ex President , Sir look look they all wants you back. So they plotted to bring the poor man in the pretext that he has got massive support of Singhala Modayas to make him the next PM.

          This Man I would say, so naive to get in to this mess rather than enjoying his Presidential Retirement in his Palace.

          We should feel sorry for this gullible old man who has got himself into a fine Mess.

        Westside,

        Rev.MS is very foolish.He and Mrs CBK are certain/ or fear that MR coalition is sure to win …they do not understand that the voter will guess why they got panicky and got on to the stage.IT IS A FREUDIAN SLIP on their part. After THIS COUPLE saw the way the chaos was created…1st with the bond scheme and part of the money allegedly going for UNP’s expenses via Mahendran Jr CB Chairman …the son of Mr Mahendran who went to Thimpu talks obo Pres. JRJ & UNP UN Rep. DPL to the U.N. when Ranil was PM;Amaratunga’s behaviour which would have toppled the Govt; Catholic M of Finance Ravi K’s behaviour like a Buddhist when certain dignitaries came to the country,case against him…dealings with Raj R now in U.S. jail for insider trading and KUDU allegations ; doing deals without giving the power to the Parliament democratically…in a very unconventional way appointing the illegal cabinet of ministers twice they should have been guides advising Ranil’s group. That couple should have counseled the wrong doers of the Govt by visiting their ministries. That is the BUDDHIST WAY.Here the couple is sowing the seeds of HATRED all over even if MR’s name is not mentioned on the platforms.That would have been the best tactics specially because even the UNP party and some of its supporters know how disorganized Ranil is, that he is inefficient, even now having too many ministries under his control for power but does not know to handle…that the party was “O”, and came up because of MS-President, CBK, Rev.MS,Mr Jayantha Dhanapala, one Cabral close to Mrs CBK through Gas Co and her Petroleum Corp. deals and a few others who schemed fot 2 years.
        The good things that the Rajapakse family did as well as bad things ,if proved, people will never forget. I learned many things from the older writers of this learned column of CT and DBSJ’s learned website. Abuse, Nepotism , commissions …all kinds of frauds were there starting with old 1st PM ,D.S.S, Sir John & Pres. JRJ’s times ,but people were scared to even talk about their wrongs.I remember Dr Wickrama Weerasooria ,brother- in- law of Mr Gamini Dissanayake,(( who were champions of Mahaweli where its valuable water had travelled 120 miles and flooded Dr WW’s Co. Finco Ltd – where he was a Director,)) and Minister Navin Dissanayake’s Mama had prepared the “SATH AVURUDU SAPAYA “booklet against Madam Sirimavo’s Govt in 1977 when our parents were young.It seems that thinking that they might lose an election & people might come after them for frauds, they had chartered a plane for the Dissanayake family to runaway to Australia, where Dr WW had a lot of wealth stored .Nothing was proved. UNP Govt’s Ministers of 17 yrs alleged to have abused funds…JVP and the then UNP Govt killed people…Tamil Black July…Jaffna Library Arson Conspiracy…, SC Judges’ homes were attacked, Resignation letters of all UNPers including mr Ranil W. were in Pres JRJ’s hand it seems, Madam Sirimavo’s Civic Rts were taken away & Mr RW voted for (retroactive legislation against Human Rts)HOW MANY WERE PUNISHED? What were these Yahapalana people doing those days?

          Rajapakshes are not welcome in this country anymore. All those are made fools will though vote for him, not many with little brains vote them to parliaments.
          They have to be isolated to the very same manner, as was the case for Prabakaran.

        “Its shocking to note a good section of Sri Lankans DONT HAVE ANY GRATITUDE for a man who was a major part in bring back peace to this little paradise.”

        You are mixing up Sarath Fonseka, the true Hero with Mahinda Rajapaksa. He had the opportunity to bring the Country together, and he blew it, and jailed the true Hero Sarath Fonseka. Tried his tricks, extend his term and family Dynasty.

        It is best to describe MaRa as a Mootal, Modaya. MaRa did not get it. He thought Sinhalese Buddhist racism is the solution and will keep hum and his family in power for ever.

        Be informed by reading widely and not by just listening to MR.

        He wiped out the LTTE on the back of international anti-terrorism agenda and India’s Himalayan hatred of LTTE. Certainly VP shouldn’t be here on this planet.

        But how did MR come to power – by bribing VP to stop Tamils voting(in Ranil).

        As many political bhikkus have been ”chanting absolute garbage and creating confusion/un pleasantness and hatred” and supporting MR who has been immoral and unethical in all issues affecting the country as a whole, Ven Maduluwawe Sobitha Thero had to form National Frone for Social Justice and work towards dethroning MR.

        CBK must go to Kurunegala with the Ven Thero to stop MR becoming an MP – MR was responsible for a large number of murders and disappearances and massive corruption. This is not only against basic human decency and internationally accepted norms but also against Buddha Dhamma. His continuing lies are making Sinhala masses dangerously ignorant and harmful to themselves and to the society.

        Hence CBK-Sobitha Tour to Kurunegala is of utmost importance to SriLanka.

        Westside you write quote “Its shocking to note a good section of Sri Lankans DONT HAVE ANY GRATITUDE for a man who was a major part in bring back peace to this little paradise”. unquote.

        What you and the majority of Sri Lankans have been brain washed to believe is that we Sri Lankans have to be grateful to Mahinda, Gota and the rest for saving us from Terrorism. Why should we be grateful to anyone? Did you, I or any other citizen of our country bring about terrorism or did we have any problem with our Tamil brothers living in our land? No! Terrorism, separatism, racism, religious intolerance, etc were the creations by the politicians, starting with SWRD’s Sinhala only rhetoric, which gave rise to the Tamil issue culminating with the LTTE taking up arms. SLFP started the rot and Mahinda is the longest serving SLFPer and former leader. In fact the politicians, especially those from the SLFP need to seek forgiveness from the people of this country for the grave wrong done to it and not for us to be thankful to them or anyone else.
        THEY CREATED THE PROBLEM, EARNED OFF THE PROBLEM AND NOW EXPECT US TO BE THANKFUL FOR RIDDING THE PROBLEM; BLOODY-CHEEK.

      Excellent move.

      Yes, Expose the Liar, Crooks, Thieves, Robbers and Criminals to the people. Ask the people to think before they vote for MARA, MaRa , Mara who opposed Buddha and his teachings.

      Ven. Sobitha Thero should point out that voting for MaRa MaRa , Mara is a Papa Karmayak for a Buddhist.

      Remind about the Hero Sarath Fonseka and how the true Hero was treated.

      Remind about his Funding Velupullai Prabahaean.

        May gods be on your side Amarasiri. Please expose more of the abuses of Rajapakshes. Just returning from Lanka, I feel today, there are not even necessary placards remained in the colombo sites. No comparable at all with the manner Rajapakshe handled it for his sake during the previous election. People are peaceful and things get its way better as seen prior to Jan 8th.

          Hopefully the MaRa “Apala Kalaya”, MaRa bad times are behind all Sri Lankans, and the “Apala Karmaya” is behind as well and fast fading.

          However, the People need to be reminded that voting for MaRa and his cronies is really Voting for Apala Karmaya, and voting for Mara, who opposed Buddha at every turn.

        Mr Amarasiri/Westside

        My writings are impartial, and that is why I say that no wrong doer gets punished; PLEASE READ WHAT I WROTE- two of the little fish that had got caught were SLFPers , Marikkar(Kadugannawa MP) and M.of Postal Affairs etc. & Monnekulama( MP Kurunegala) during SLFP regimes in the 1950s, according to my elders.IT IS NOT RUBBISH MR AMARASIRI! I am a SELF MADE MAN brought up on Rational/Agnostic Buddhist Principles , GOVERNED only by, Parabhava Sutta, Singalovada Sutta, Kalama Sutta, Tevijja Sutta (where Buddha shows that there is no GOD-MAHABRAHMA…which can be applied to show that no Gods at all , though through fear and ignorance and B-Priests’ interpretations ,poor credulous Buddhist devotees believe in a pantheon of Gods)Samannaphala Sutta and Brahmajala Sutta, where Lord Buddha says that Shramanabhawath Gautamayo after accepting alms from the devotees does not believe in superstitions( about 120 types)like ASTROLOGY-NAKSHASTRA.Since PM DSS of 1947 up to now all politicians consult Astrologers…ask for Nekath. It was a shame that Astrologers were wrong as …Dudly in 1952 was invited to the Queen’s House for swearing in as the 2nd PM of Lanka, after the father’s death by Lord Soulbery…but he first consulted Astrologers…the prediction was positive…accepted PM’ship, but could not handle and within about 18 months had feared a HARTHAL and resigned, as my father related. When MR, sure of winning had elections 2 yrs ahead of time,lost after the predictions of his astrologers & THE ENTIRE WORLD MUST HAVE THOUGHT THAT WE ARE A GULLIBLE /UNEDUCATED NATION. It is because our politicians have not heard BANA from those SUTRAS that they all go after Necromancers ,Soothsayers, charlatans and Astrologers.Look at the wrists of our SINHALA-BUDDHIST politicians…you will see strands of Pirith nool (that is ok as its a nice custom as a DO NO WRONG REMINDER) , but some have from Kattandiyas as well.The Leftists nor rightists nor centrists helped me to have a good education and deal with only respectable , decent people and carry on with a conversation in this type of blogs, dear friend Amarasiri.These columns must be for educated discussions and not to blindly, unceremoniously ridicule people of any side. What one writes…calling names … displays the calibre and mentality of people who favour the side they defend.

        If you have any connections please tell Sobhitha Thero to follow the above Sutras and descipline the Sangha and the politicians after his political campaign is over; of course , he will have to ask his brethren to shut down the money making Devales.How nice if we have rational politicians who do not believe in superstitions.

          Many good points..about Astrology and Politicians clinging on to get “things Rights”.

          Dudley Seanayaka, Mahinda Rajapaksa and the known casualties or suckers for Astrology. However, there are thousands we not heard about.

          “though through fear and ignorance and B-Priests’ interpretations ,poor credulous Buddhist devotees believe in a pantheon of Gods)Samannaphala Sutta and Brahmajala Sutta, where Lord Buddha says that Shramanabhawath Gautamayo after accepting alms from the devotees does not believe in superstitions( about 120 types)like ASTROLOGY-“

          While Buddhas was correct, still the People wanted Gods..or God substitutes,,, and Buddha was made into a God, maintained by Monks,,, Sangha became the Third Gem of the Triple Gem… and allowed for the Monk Hegemony..

          This was true for Christianity with Popes and Cardinals and in Islam with Ulema etc. a New Religious hegemony class..

          Now to Astrology, the Pseudo science.

          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astrology

          Not to be confused with Astronomy, the scientific study of celestial objects.

          Astrology consists of several pseudoscientific systems of divination based on the premise that there is a relationship between astronomical phenomena and events in the human world.[1][2][3][4][5]:1350 Many cultures have attached importance to astronomical events, and the Indians, Chinese, and Mayans developed elaborate systems for predicting terrestrial events from celestial observations. In the West, astrology most often consists of a system of horoscopes purporting to explain aspects of a person’s personality and predict future events in their life based on the positions of the sun, moon, and other celestial objects at the time of their birth. The majority of professional astrologers rely on such systems.[6]:83

          Throughout most of its history, astrology was considered a scholarly tradition. It was accepted in political and academic contexts, and was connected with other studies, such as astronomy, alchemy, meteorology, and medicine.[7] At the end of the 17th century, new scientific concepts in astronomy and physics (such as heliocentrism and Newtonian mechanics) called astrology into question. Astrology thus lost its academic and theoretical standing, and common belief in astrology has largely declined.[8] Astrology has been rejected by the scientific community as a pseudoscience, having no validity or explanatory power for describing the universe. Among other issues, there is no proposed mechanism of action by which the positions and motions of stars and planets could affect people and events on Earth that does not contradict well understood basic aspects of biology and physics.[9]:249[10] Scientific testing of astrology has found no evidence to support any of the premises or purported effects outlined in astrological traditions.[1] In one study, participating astrologers attempting to match natal charts with profiles generated by a psychological inventory produced results not significantly at variance with random chance.[11]:424

          Astrology has been dated to at least the 2nd millennium BCE, with roots in calendrical systems used to predict seasonal shifts and to interpret celestial cycles as signs of divine communications.[12] A form of astrology was practised in the first dynasty of Mesopotamia (1950–1651 BCE). Chinese astrology was elaborated in the Zhou dynasty (1046–256 BCE). Hellenistic astrology after 332 BCE mixed Babylonian astrology with Egyptian Decanic astrology in Alexandria, creating horoscopic astrology. Alexander the Great’s conquest of Asia allowed astrology to spread to Ancient Greece and Rome. In Rome, astrology was associated with Chaldean wisdom. After the conquest of Alexandria in the 7th century, astrology was taken up by Islamic scholars, and Hellenistic texts were translated into Arabic and Persian. In the 12th century, Arabic texts were imported to Europe and translated into Latin, helping to initiate the European Renaissance, when major astronomers including Tycho Brahe, Johannes Kepler and Galileo practised as court astrologers. Astrological references appear in literature in the works of poets such as Dante Alighieri and Geoffrey Chaucer, and of playwrights such as Christopher Marlowe and William Shakespeare.

    Venerable Meduluwewa Sobitha Thero has said . all Politicians who are engaged in corruption and thuggery should drink Poison.

    It looks like old Pirabaran has admires even among the Buddhist clergy besides Vigneswaran,,

    Whether he said this after or before signing the UNP Sobitha pact which he organised with Paikiososothty and other Corruption Free Good Governance NGOs in Colombo and overseas.is unclear.

    However this consuming poison must have been a recent thing.. Right

    Otherwise Whisky Madam wouldn’t have been able to mount the Yahapalana platform.

    Wonder why the Madam wouldn’t appear with the Cousin?.

    May be she doesn’t want the Elite , Anglicans and the Vellalas to shout Jayaveva to the Madam and divert the adoration away from the Cousin.

    Or Batalanda Ranil and his mate Mahendran also on Sobotha’s list of eligible identities for poisioning themselves?.

      “It looks like old Pirabaran has admires even among the Buddhist clergy besides Vigneswaran,,”

      What did Gota do with barrel loads of cyanide that he brought back to Colombo together with VP’s cash and gold?

      Do you think he has sufficient quantity to go around? There may be a shortage given that the number of crooks in this island.

    To Ven. Sobitha Thero’s sense of fairness and justice, it is revolting to see the recrudescence of communalism in the country. More so when Mahinda seeks to fan the flames to win his loosing election.Great that he and Chandrika are campaigning together to ensure that the UPFA is trounced.

    CBK and Sobhitha Thera are gong to educate the voters on the importance of choosing candidates with a clean slate. This means that people can not vote for UPLF because everyone is corrupt and Mahinda Rajapaksa(MR) is the main culprit. People can not vote for the UNP either because its leader Ranil and John Amarathunga are close friends of MR and a UNP led government will never punish the corrupt UPLF thugs. Further UNP has its own internal problems and corruption charges(central Bank issue) as well. People have only one choice. That is the JVP. JVP is led by a reasonably educated young person and has made a genuine apology for the mistakes(never involved in corruption) that they have done in the past. As such, it is time that Sobhitha Thera and CBK tell the people to vote for the JVP as their mistakes are not as bad as the mistakes done by the UNP or the SLFP. It seems people are quietly waiting to do the right thing on the 17th. Hopefully JVP will either come First or Second for sure. That is the hope of Mahanayaka Theras as well.

    You can apologise all you want for the JVP but don’t lie. He never apoogised ar admitted anything.What he said was’if we have done anything’without owning up to anything.
    These are another bunch of outward do gooders but no different from the power hungry rest. All they have done throught out history have been to grab and consolidate thier power base.
    The only time they some thing worthy of mentioning was when they supported MR in2005 and that too on Wimal Weerawnasa’s insistance and soon they undid that too.
    Today they get some undue exposure from Jahapalana government because Ranil thinks the votes that are drifting way fast from the UNFGG will go to JVP instead of UPFA.

    We heard that these two are kidnapped by UNP from their sexual misbehaviours in the past.

    It is said that UNP has evidence.

    Not sure whether this is corrrect.

    If MR was such a thug and dictator, how would she dare to do this? Could he be the person who gave leadership after everyone else failed miserably ? It was under CBK that the economy stagnated and the most of brave soldiers were killed. It was under JR that the Tamil problem was aggravated in 1983. It was under Ranil in 2004 that the North and East was almost given over to Prabhakaran as a separate state,that caused CBK to prorogue parliament. All facts, not rhetoric. Lee Kuan Yew’s family has ruled Singapore for 50 years, but the country is among the best places to live. It is also almost a police state, with no political freedom, and now, one of the most expensive in the world. Still companies are fighting to get there. LKY’s daughter in law runs Temasek Holdings, which is the largest investment firm in Singapore. His son is Prime Minister. Does anyone care? No. They love their country. There are faults, but it is often held up as the best place to live and work. Why? Because one man had a vision – yes, he looked after his family. So what?

    It won’t be a good idea for CBK, the Chaura Regina,
    to stay at home. That will help Mahinda Rajapaksa
    get less votes.

    CBK is as much hated as MR is. There is no difference.
    She has a bard mouth and is full of revenge. She oozes
    with remorse, anger and frustration.

    “Madam CBK and Sobhithe Thero have a moral responsibility of completing the mission perfectly” –
    “CBK and Sobhitha Thera are gong to educate the voters on the importance of choosing candidates with a clean slate” –

    If not, the most hillarious quip is CBK going to Kurunegala to educate voters ???????? The joke of the year. What morals does she have??

    With the campaign for Jan 08, it was KOOL. Then it ended with a CBK slap.
    Now Aug 17 campaign with Shobitha. Will Shobitha end up with a CBK knowck to his bare head ?????????
    THIS WOMAN CBK IS A CURSE TO SRI LANKA. If only the corridors of the Janadipathi Mandiraya can speak what took place after the darkness set in each day.

    Criticism must be fare. critics should not be on some ones paid list.
    Sri Lanka politics hace turned to Goebbells.
    So it was in the run upto Jan08 and so it is upto the Aug 17.
    In the meantine in addition to the Bond fiasco CB & mahendran are in the process of never ending burrowing.
    Has any being ploughed back to the benefit of the country?????

    Whu criticise CHANDRAGUPTHA’S TRUTH ABOUT UNP/MAHAWELI/NAVIN DISSANAYAKE’S MAMA Ww? tHATS THE TRUTH.
    Dissanayake’s family owned only a “Buth Kade” in the Kandy town. Ask any Trinitian of 60s & 70s. Navin is not a patch of the old man but yet attempting stand on the laurells of his father.
    Ranil is only looking for suckers to grab power.

    Maduluwawe Sobhitha Thero is one of the very few Buddhist monks in Sri Lanka who is capable of thinking objectively, rationally, dispassionately, reasonably, intelligently and sensibly. He also has the guts to speak out. If I had a hat I would take it off to him.

    Most of the other Hamaduruwos who are regarded as ‘erudite scholars’ by the masses and even by the elite are just narrow minded humbugs, chauvinists, racists, religious bigots and frogs in the well!

    CBK, the ‘Chaura Ragina’ who left the SLFP, has somehow inveigled her way back into it, and even attempted unsuccessfully, to make her son it’s leader, as reported. She now wants the party followers to vote to empower the UNP. Will she succeed ? Should she be banned from any association with the party ?
