Cricket Fans At Pallekele Boo Rajapaksa Election Propaganda Stunt

Attempts to politicise the sixth ODI between Sri Lanka and England in Pallekele on Saturday became a total flop when cricket fans hooted the stands down until presidential election propaganda was taken off giant screens.

Mahinda_RajapaksaPresidential election motto “Subha Anagathayak” appeared with his lotus flower insignia during the match, where crowds were preoccupied with giving former skipper Kumar Sangakkara a rousing farewell from Kandy.

When giant screens at the Pallekele Stadium flashed Mahinda Rajapaksa‘s election propaganda, the crowds hooted and booed until organisers were forced to remove the electronic banner.

Not even cricket and the prisons have escaped the Government’s electioneering efforts, with election monitors reporting today that prisoners in their prison uniforms were being used by the ruling UPFA coalition to carry out election work.

Pictures released by the Campaign for Free and Fair Elections or CaFFE showed prison buses and prisoners in blue jumpsuits walking the streets holding Mahinda Rajapaksa cut outs and posters. CaFFE said that the prisoners had been involved in erecting a platform for the UPFA rally in Kamburupitiya on Sunday (14).

    Coming colors do not sound good for the Loku Passes. Nothing like a few boos from the people of Sri Lanka to show it. Good job.

    Each and every Sri lankan understands what is happening in the country today, there is no independent judiciary system, law & order, no democracy, no place for educated professionals. People who rally around Mahinda Rajapaksa non other than gangsters (Patale), casino, drug, ethanol businessmen. We all know MR and his government mortgaging the country to China and taking loan at commercial rates of above 7% per annum. Who pays these loan back? Rather than development for the country making Rajapaksa family U$ billionaires at poor’s cost. MR is the most corrupt, racist, dictator in Asia today.

      A recent report in The Guardian, showed the multi million $ properties the Rajapakses have accumulated in USA. I am disappointed that our Bribery and Corruption Supremos have not emulated the Jayalalitha charges in Kerala and ask just simply how they came by this fortune, on their ministerial salaries.

      What is most surprising is that, even though a massive defeat of the regime is evidently certain, public servants are unaware of surcharges on them. The new regime will never spare them. Unrelentingly it will get back to the stern era of the fifties.

    The newly created corrupt lawless Banana Republic, ruled by a corrupt self assumed King, rule the Country by intimidation, threat, assault, disappearances and murder, and serve only the criminals. We need to rediscover our lost Democratic Sri Lanka and the lost prestige. After the 8th. of January 2015, a vote for democracy, all should be back to normal.
