Champika Breaks Away From UPFA To Protest Rajapaksa’s Nominations

The Jathika Hela Urumaya has decided to break away from the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA).

Champika

The decision was made when the party’s main decision making body met last night in Colombo.

The JHU will contest the forthcoming Parliamentary election under the United National Front for Good Governance.

The party has decided to break away from the UPFA as it decided to give nomination to former President Mahinda Rajapaksa to contest under the UPFA ticket. JHU General Secretary Patali Champika Ranawaka said the party could not contest under a political front accommodating former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Ranawaka said the party was holding discussions with several other political movements to contest together at the General election under the new ‘Good Governance’ front.

    So what is news?

    This cynical political parasite would do anything to further his single-barrel ambition of becoming president by 2020. The change of name of his band of about 80 supporters to relat eto the “good governence” gravy train will not work.

    This JVA drop out is only pipe dreaming. He has just dug his political grave.

    He is good to become his own funeral director now!

      Never mind the political circus. Siriena is playing his cards close to his chest and when the SLFP will split MR and his band of corrupt SLFP political clowns will be responsible..

      Question is how to keep Ranil Wixckramasinghe accountable and get rid of Corrupt Central Bank Governor?

      The priority for civil society and the Election Commission right now is to get the Election Commissioner to review the voter lists get rid of the GHOST VOTERS on all the electoral lists that the corrupt Mahinda Jarapassa regime added on to RIG the Presidential election in January, despite which MR lost.

      15 million votes in a country of 21 million does not make numerical sense. Many Sri Lankan I know also have not registered due to DISGUST with the political system. So, Clearly there are a number of Ghost voters who are responsible for the victory of the most corrupt politicians. This must not be allowed this time at the general election

    Good riddance for UPFA.

    Champika is undoubtedly anti-Tamil. He may be harbouring his own ambitions to become the next President. But no chance of that happening.

    Let him contest on his own and prove that he has popular support.

    Champika and JHU hitch-hiked on the UPFA bandwagon to enter Parliament. The name United National Front for Good Governance is just to fool the people and this Champika’s party will be essentially a Sinhala extremist party. So long as guys like Champika and Wimal Weerawangsa are around they will make reconciliation with the Tamils difficult with their anti-Tamil venom.

      @Naga..’Champika is undoubtedly anti-Tamil’

      As Compared to what the TNA, who is Only PRO Dravidian Tamil and Anti Every Ethnic Group of Sri Lanka. There were So called Pundits on this very site crying how MS Betrayed the TNA by giving MR nomination and Thus Dangering the TNA’s Principles of Democracy for backing MS.. TNA’s Democeacr. The Very TNA who once said that Death Cult LTTE was the only representive of the Tamils, The Very TNA that Backed the LTTE Leader for Life Leader. what a Joke. The Tamils are Just interested in their own nterest rather than the nations.

    You are a real buruwa. Why are you abandoning Mahinda so recklessly.

    He is the man for you and me. Please rethink. You are a clever man but at times can be a incorrigible pain in the backside.

    You need Mahinda and Mahinda needs you. I too need you as you can make all the difference.

    I have travelled through the jails of Sri Lanka to the corridors of the UN and I know what real politics is.

    Machang Chapike, please rethink and act wisely.

    I am awaiting for the good news to support Mahinda soon. Your 600,000 vote base important for Mahinda – my hero.

              So, Gota killed all stray dogs in Colombo? From where did you get this information?

              I am your conscience and I am threatened that my days are numbered if Mahinda comes to power. What will happen to you if I am gone?

              Let us both get bitten and killed by the Sori Naais. They are only sori but are faithful animals to live with human.

          Is your comment appropriate for a tailless dog?

          Very poor thinking and judgement. It looks like you are at a low at the moment.

              First learn and then teach. The ass always complains of the cold even in July.

              Do you want to learn more of proverbial senses.

              Here you are: ‘Not all proverbs convey words of wisdom. Some of them are complete nonsense and we should stop using them as references’.

    Whatever the reasons that MS has up his sleeve, on the face of it, I disagree with his decision to sponsor MR. He should not be recalled at all. Just like Leapords do not change spots in their life time, Mahinda would never ever change his personality and objectives in his life time. We would be back to the time of his form of fedualism and dictatorship, and worst of all the nepotism, corruption and downright roguish activities. He has ruined his good reputation as a savior of the nation at one point in our history, and the next moment he has usurped all its assets for the benefit of his family.

    What MS, in his goodness, does not seem to understand is that once MR is in, he would be given the premiership by his cronies in the parliamnet together with enormous powers. MS would have no control over the mobs and hecklers as they have adequately shown us since january, and let those hecklers and indecent polticcos win. As things appear to be going, MS would quite literally end up under the soil, as he predicted in January. Presidency is no guarantee to life: Abraham Lincoln, John Kennedy and such like powerful people ended up in a hail of bullets.

    As to the politics of principles, difficult that it may be, I agree with Champika. People must have principles and stick to promises. MR out MUST mean MR out, not sending on his gardening leave, to be recalled to his old job under a new name. I too feel that MS has let down 6.2M people and embraced a viper that he cannot control.

    It makes me wonder now, if MR has kept a file on MS as well as on RW. It explains why these stalwarts of Yahapalanaya were impotent to do anything against MR, when they had the opportunity and reasons to lock him up. There are times politicans have to act decisively and take risks, and then take responsibility for it. MS did it once, but now he does not seem to have the strength and drive to maintain his original objectives. MR might spare him, provided MS returns to a temple to spend his remaining life.

    JHU should get together with other small parties with honest members including those of SLFP and even UNP should make a new front with honest politicians who serve the country.

    “Champika Breaks Away From UPFA”

    it would be better if he breaks away from srilanka.

    IF by chance i become the president one day the first thing i will do is to select 700 from the country and put them on a ship and set it adrift in the indian ocean.Let god decide where they will land,anywhere`except back here again.Champika and wimal and mervyn will head the list.

    Get MR to contest as a local MP and let him lose his ex-presidential liberties. This will save the country loads of money. When he is voted out he will lose all rights and will be on the street minus his bullet proof car and west, the army protecting him.

    Proliferation of parties while clamour is for bandwagon! These parties are unfit for national politics. They are parochial and good for local governance. To make them ineffective, election be on nation wide national list yet a sitting member of a WPC only can contest to parliament, no parachute celebrity or ex service man or clergy or baron et al. He may have some old scores to settle with Ranil, both presidential aspirants!

    Needless to say the least, MS has no control even today. Yahapalanaya running riot.

    Naga.

    You are right.

    There were two individuals who wanted to enter Mainstream Sinhala racist Politics.One was Patali[unusual Sinhala name;Caste?] and the other was the late S.L.Gunasekera.The battle was who will capture the Hela party.Patali won saying that S.L was a whisky drinking Christian.Perhaps,Patali preferred a Kassipu drinking Buddhist!

    Patali is more dangerous than even the BBS!

      “Patali is more dangerous than even the BBS!”

      Patala is more stupider than a racist. He is danger to himself than to people.

      He believes first ape spoke Sinhala and discovered zero.

    Students who were with him at the University of Moratuwa know who Patali is. First he was with JVP, then DJP, Janatha Mithuro, Nalin De Silva’s party, SL, JHU, MP, MS,.. Students were surprised how he survived the 89-90 when all his buddies perished. Talk was that he had a close relative at STF who took care of him. He worked with SL Guna and backstabbed him after stealing his voter base. This is what he does. He is another power hungry, selfish politician who if elected could be dangerous than MR. There are rumors floating about his personal life as well which if true could be a reflection of his personality.

      “He worked with SL Guna and backstabbed him after stealing his voter base.”

      He also uses racist taunt to arouse Sinhala/Buddhist voters. He is a typical Sinhala/Buddhist politician.

      Thank you for revealing his past. Yes he is an ambitious politician. They all are not that innocent as we also hear about Noraccholai/ coal etc which does not speak of well of Champika. I heard these funds were for the JHU to contest election. Whatever it is dishonesty. He is not a saint that he pretends to be.
