    Brilliant speech , the likes of which are extremely rare not just in Sri Lanka but in the legislatures of western democracies.

    The theme has shades of commonality with that of the great Lakshman Kadirgamar and Neelan Thiruchelvam.Hope this historic opportunity of having a new constitution in the interest of one undivided Sri Lanka is not wasted away for we are unlikely to get another.

    Thank you Colombo Telegraph for having a live recording of the Sumanthiran plea for our Lanka

      Sumanthiran is looking for a new meaning for equality.
      He asks how can Buddhists ask for Buddhism to be the foremost religion and that makes all other religions not equal.

      Equality is there for everyone to practice,protect and promote any religion. There are no rules or regulations to treat other religions differently. Instead of grumbling Sumanthiran should be thankful for that.

      Buddhism gets the foremost place in this country because it is the religion of the vast majority of the country.

        “Buddhism gets the foremost place in this country because it is the religion of the vast majority of the country.”

        I find your typing amazing. If Buddhism is not given the foremost place in this country what would happen to it? If Buddhism can’t stand on its own philosophical merit, and supported by its adherents do you thing it will survive the next hundred years? If it doesn’t how the hell could the crooks protect it unless of course they benefit from it.

      TFN: hahahaha now Jimbi is giving advise on how to operate a Tamil political party. What a hoot!!! Tamils are Hindus? Not all Tamils are Hindus you monkey just like not all Sinhalese are Buddhists. What’s up with Buddhism fool? It is not even a faith or religion. It is simply a philosophy. Jimbo is a nutter.

    It’s clearly visible that Mr sumanthiran has racial approach to support federalism.

    True, Tamil people want justice for crimes committed against them in 80s. It’s wise for them to
    demand a commission to investigate black July, 83, who are responsible? Did JRJ regime acted deceptive manner etc.

    Frankly speaking, ordinary voters did not take federalism factor seriously when electing new govt.in 2016.
    It was mainly negative publicity for MR regime, so his claim that very strong mandate to support federalism existed is unacceptable.

        4 average SLns, there’s nothing 2 do with federalism, it’s artificially inserted thing into the minds of Tamil people by which they assume they will have access 4 more freedom & opportunities. It’s unfortunate that minorities in our country are racial but nonracial majority have been labeled racists.

      Are you trying to play “TRUMP” by muddying the waters?

      83 was bad and no one questions that, the thirty year war if not the result was a grate factor because of it.

      Right now digging 83 serves no one, most that really suffered in 83 left the country, they have moved on and their children are doing very well in the adopted countries.

      Stop shedding crocodile tears and do whats right for the current population of the country.

        It may be that no one questions because sufferers children doing well in adopted countries letting crimes go unheeded.

        So what the hell you folks are interested in making federalism here instead doing well in your adopted countries.

        History is dug & exhumed 4 investigation in any civilized country., Tamils won’t cry 4 federal if those culprits are given due treatment & sufferers compensated.

      Sellam
      When you and Sumathitharan say ‘Tamil people’ you mean Hindu and Christian Tamils in the North or all Tamil speaking people scattered across the island irrespective of their religion or the date of arrival? Specifically are those practising Islam included?
      How do you propose to devole political power to the majority of Tamils (Tamil speaking people in my definition) who are in pockets inside Sinhala majority provinces? My worry is they will be far worse off. With land and police powers devolved and direct central power eliminated they will have no potection from discrimination. There will ugly tit for tat dramas between provinces – let Vingeshwaran remove a couple of Budda statues and see a what happens)) If I were a Tamil (and of course concerned with welfare of the majority) I would oppose fedalism strongly. For the sake of ego of having a separate province for the numerically smaller number of Tamils you are sacrificing the welfare of the majority.

    Dear Sumanthiran,

    An excellent speech. If there is one thing in the world that puzzles me now, it is how someone like you who is so rational, clear in your thoughts, fair and inclusive can support someone like Bishop Thiagarajah who is destroying historic institutions like Jaffna College and Uduvil Girls’ College. Have you ever tried to speak to the people who are campaigning for change at these places? They are not irrational, horrible, anti-Christian people as you might have been told by the Bishop and his supporters. Many of them, from humble backgrounds and from rural areas in Jaffna, were immensely benefited from these institutions and see these institutions as the places that made them who they are today. Please try to find out what others think about Bishop Thiagarajah’s role in JC and UGC. They are open to discussion. Please don’t be on the wrong side. It is a kind request from someone who has a very high opinion about some of your political positions.

    Obviously a very convincing and powerful speech; a Nelson Mandela like .There have been equally good speakers in the past in SL but the final outcome has been disappointing.
    I am afraid and pessimistic of sucess because we are trying to reinvent the wheel which we are not capable of with a low I Q of 79; the normal being 100.
    A secular constitution is the only answer without any exceptions if it is to be successful and for one to be proud of one’s country.

    This government is trying to implement the promise and the manifesto of Mahinda Rajapakse and the mandate given by the 97% of people of Sri Lanka and what’s less is not the recommendation of the his APRC of ‘union of regions’ by only undivided Sri Lanka and not the proposal on Federalism of the founder of SLFP – S W R D Bandaranayake. Yet, the JO makes noices against the interim report of the Steering Committee.
    Politics is dirty with lies and tribulation and will JO and monks sink to the low to destroy the country.

    Excellent speech well done Sumanthiran. I only hope Mahinda Rajapkse has the guts to oppose this speech, especially the points what Sumanthiran has said about Mahinda’s contribution in the past to this constitution. If Mahinda cannot let him shut his mouth for good.

    Thanks, Sumanthiran,

    You have risen up to the status of a great leader and delivered a marvelous speech.
    Continue your good work, compromise if necessary, but always find a way out for
    peace and prosperity.

    It is a great speech. It should be translated into Sinhalaa and Tamil and widely circulated.

    No doubt. a brilliant exhibition of fluent speaking like the mercurial late GG Ponnambalam’s 24 hour speech during the debate on {Sinhala Only Bill] in 1956 who was later branded as a betrayer by the Federal Party. [ITAK] The 10 million dollar question is will this speech be followed by actions to vindicate and realize them or was meant for the gallery and hoodwink the Tamils while keeping the agenda of unofficial support for Ranil and present Government coupled with the tacit understanding to not to offend them by taking any practical and meaningful actions against the Govt.
    Can Sumanthiran sit at least for a day with the toiling poor protesters on the streets& jail [people who wants to know the whereabouts of their missing, disappeared, arrested, surrendered loved ones. People demanding their legal lands, Political prisoner’s just demand for justice – to change the Courts to Vavuniya]
    It will be a miracle if he does this to prove his sincerity.
    WHAT THE WHOLE TAMILS NEED IS ACTION NOT WORDS OF ELOQUENCE FOR OCCASIONS.

    How does one identify the percentage of people who gave a mandate on a particular issue such as “a new constitution” in an election the main thrust of which was to get rid of the then existing regime?
    We can fully share MP Sumanthiran’s passionate plea for devolution of power. But combining that with the abolition of Presidency at this point – given the absolutely corrupt political culture which can easily pave the way for a constitutional dictatorship via parliament – and with supporting Ranil’s liberal agenda is not going to bring about a consensus. This is only a deal among the members of the political class. They are not concerned about the ordinary people of any community or the future of the country otherwise.

      Yes. The present system of Governance is no good for those who want peace and prosperity while eliminating or reducing bribery and corruption. The system has to be changed wherein a very large number of citizens would be empowered to get involved and participate in the “Governance of the Country” for the betterment of every citizen instead of only the 225 politicians and their close friends.

      Congratulations, for taking up a new profession, the mind reading psychic.
      The Vaddukottai Resolution was dead and buried on 14 May 1976 in Pannakam. However you have been suffering from paranoia for more than 60 years. As a result you have also been fighting with your own shadow.

      Its not easy for your family.

    Mr Sumanthiran’s speech is nothing but of a man expressing his horrors of Sri Lankans with a clouded mind on Federalism…whatever the way he tries to dress up his story the base is Federalism…he should grow out and pull the Tamil people out of the inferiority complex they suffer rather than struggling to live in it by justifying on historical claims….

    the election Manifestos are only an eyewash that finally end up only as toilet papers ..eaten by goats or in dust bins….votes are collected on bribe..SIL REDI is one example..this is a PATHETIC HABIT OF SRI LANKAN POLITICIANS, the GREAT GAMBLERS…Luck by chance..” දුන්නොත් ඈතුලෙ .. නොදුන්නොත් එලියෙ. ලබන සෑරේ අපි දෙනවා වෑඩේ..”

    MR lost because majority of the people hated him for his dirty way of handling political issues helping cronies….Therefore people backed MS not because of his extraordinary achievements but purely to defeat MR…..MS was elected to Office with 6.2mn votes.. and MR losing with 5.2mn emotional votes of die hard supporters…

    had MR been elected all knew what he would have done..

    MS never said that he would repeal the constitution but certainly would make changes in the constitution…and uplift the economic standards of the poor as prority…

    Mr Sumanthiran is not a baby…therefore he should stop his vain attempts to project that the total of 12.0mn voted at the 2015 election to repeal the constitution when it is not so under the political realities of Sri Lanka..

    IF people were keen to repeal the Constitution as claimed by Mr Sumanthiran..then they certainly would have voted for MR under ” නොදන්න සුර දූතයාට වඩා දන්න යකා හොදයි ” policy…

    People have lost faith in the Government for lying….they looted the Central Bank ably assisted by the PM and the looters are living with impunity….IT IS HIM WHO IS MOOTING THE REPEAL OF THE CONSTITUTION….

    DOES MR.SUMANTHIRAN THINK THAT PEOPLE TRUST RW….?

      ”whatever the way he tries to dress up his story the base is Federalism…”

      The Sinhalese are brainwashed right from birth to believe that Federalism is separation. Even after the Supreme Court of Sri Lanka delivered a judgment saying “Federalism is NOT Separatism”, still the fools cannot understand.

          The present “one-chamber” parliament must be changed into a “six-chamber” parliament to enable to empower a very large number (150,,000) of citizens to actively participate in the governance of the country for the betterment of the people.

            As much as SWRDB did in 1956… the present day politikkas never take decisions unless otherwise it helps to further their political ambitions… They do not love this Country or it’s people but only them…
            MR along with his goons looted the Country hiding behind MR’s immunity…
            RW as he came assisted the looting of CBSL..does anyone cares about it.
            Entire parliament members including TNA took the duty free vehicles depriving the Country Rs. 7.5 bn tax …does anyone care about it…
            If TNA had refused the offer one could think that they were genuine in their efforts…
            These are looters that promise to bring freedom…salvation ..Justice to the people of this Country…To date they have failed to draft National Policies on Economy… Health… Education.. Food …Housing which are basics in managing a country..
            So do you think they are qualified to talk on federalism…?
            these aged ..demented clowns only knows to farts and sleep in parliament is leading the Country for another unending blood bath…
            What the country need today are new educated politicians to decide the future of this Country…This can be done and should be done at the next election…

    One cannot expect anything else from Sumanthiran as he is well caught up in the tentacles of the government and the STF. If Buddhism is going to be given the foremost place, when a dispute arises between the the Buddhists and other religions over some matter, say a plot of land to build a Pansala, Hindu Temple, a Mosque or Church, Pansala’s right may supersede all others irrespective of what the law stands for. What happen then? Federalism has spoken for over a number of years but no other party other than the Tamils insisted on it. Of-course half halfheartedly most of the times . Referring to SWRD’s statement cannot hold good now as no other Sinhala parties support a federal constitution. What is promised at the election campaign is never adhered. TNA is no exception. I recollect what Churchill said when he was confronted by some young man, as to how to be a successful politician, he said something to this effect” promise the Sun and the Moon and the Earth to the people while campaigning and no sooner you win the election convince them as to why you can’t do so.” This is politics.

      What is your objection to Buddhism being given the foremost place? After all the Siddhārtha Gautama was a Hindu who took the best bits of Hindu philosophy, left out the crap of a hundred Gods doing magic in return for rituals, and called it Buddhism. Can be explained by a simple equation: Buddhism = Hinduism – stupid rituals.

    After living in one of the most decentralized, federal systems in the world for many decades, I feel this is the only solution that will guarantee a united Sri Lanka.

    Not many Parliamentarians now could present a case with such clarity and elegance,like how Sumanthiran has done in this instance. The arguments he has put forward are unassailable.
    In the post-Independence period Parliament has produced fine debaters in English ; SWRD was a treat to hear with his classics background; Dr.N.M. Perera, Pieter Keuneman, G.G.Ponnambalam, M. Balasunderam, Dr. Colvin.R.de.Silva were maestros in the art of Debate and repartee. Sadly,we do not see such standards now.
    Sumanthiran has, however, risen to the occasion and that too at a comparatively young age.

    Another GG class, Lankawe PC lawyer, Sumanthiran the Sivaji is in Veerapandiya Kattabomman speech. It was really long time since I did see Sivaji, my favorite, I enjoyed this movie. But the President, the New King is appointing three new Commissions to review is this Presidential Council’s Sales of Tamils” for “Buddhism only Constitution” is complete and whole. 1) Ayatollahs Commission, 2).Sinhala Intellectuals or CT Class PhDs or the equivalents of Muslim-Sinhala Parliamentarians’ education level, the 8th grade erudite commission, 3) Panchayat Commission.

    Even the Presidential Council’s other partner TNA Mavai is questioning the intention of the president in appointing the new Commissions.

    Comment on Plato..Sir
    In fact old pre – independent leaders that their vision has not delivered any thing for the future generation of Sri lanka.
    We are divided not only line of so-called two party politics of colonialism, we were unable to gain independent political development of and even achieved that Capitalism suited to our national conditions and its development.

    We are not at the Modern democratic state> The national bourgeoisie is revolution incomplete.
    While we are at an initial stage of Capitalist simple commodity production . By that task of bourgeoisie revolution still unfinished era even after 69 years of Independent-1948.
    Ongoing Unsustainable of capitalism has created many ills of Sri Lankan society?
    The solution for all problems is now answer is undertaken by UNP -Ranil Wickas is that
    ” New Constitution” left by history?

    SWRD was brilliant speaker but politics were Federalism since 1929? The very Foundation of Federalism of new form colonialism advocated by SWRD of SLFP since 1956? Was wrong.

    LSSP and CP leaders are an educated but by their are Trade Unionists fighters. They have left that nation struggle for which political task of an Independent of country’s political democracy for the leadership two parties of UNP and SLFP’s?

    Both has parties has did certain reforms in half way or did something enrich or stretcher their party members. Two Parties and their leaders become Rich, the people the country has become displace all over the World ? The people turn into an unchartered Globalization by mishaps .
    I am not blaming any one, theses are facts of history.

    It is nothing but an original UNP devotion Speech. It is an hour attack on Old King to frame Ranil as an angel. Then ended it that the angel opposed Chandrika’s constitution because she want to have her presidency extended. Is that what, when Ranil make the constitution he wants, he wants the New King to vacate the chair on five years? How the temporary 100 days Parliament did went to 200 days? Why this angel refused to sign the ICC accord when Chandrika wanted to sign it? Why this angel did go to New York and demanded to tear off UNSG’s Expert Panel Report? Ranil Angel wants to change the constitution because he EP election process is giving a say to Tamils in that. If UNP Yahapalanaya is not willing to change the constitution, it should say so; should not put up dramas like this to fool Tamils.

    What is astonishing is many Tamil Modayas are thinking it is a brilliant speech. It is only convoluting the facts. Isn’t that is what Thero Silva also does too. If Sumanthiran convolute facts, it is brilliant, but if Thero does it, is it Sinhala Intellectualism? How many Tamil Modayas honestly thinks, as in the way Sivaji Sumanthiran is explaining, the Sinhala Buddhists really wanted Old King to go back to Temple Tree House for third term to abolish the EP and devolve the power to Tamils? Come on Moda Tamil PhDs, be honest! Sinhalese voted for him only because they thought he was a hero for wiping out Tamils. If not so why the West and TNA did wanted Ponny to stand in 2010 election? Didn’t Sumanthiran’s TNA thought Ponny took equal share with old King so the Sinhala Modas will be treating him as an equal Hero?

    Then why Sumanthiran is twisting the story now, while the Sinhalese had voted for Old King only to suppress Minorities, as Sinhalese voted to change the constitution? Didn’t Sumanthiran write a Manifesto promising to get Self-Determination for CV to contest in NPC election? Is that the TNAyers still explaining in the NPC that Sumanthiran and Sampanthar are keep asking for Self-Determination, not signing off for Ranil’s’ “Buddhism Only” Secret Solution? Come on Tamils Moda’s before you load Sumanthiran to your shoulders, did you guys asked from him if he had talked Ranil if a draft constitution will be coming out? It is not just the Colombo is having Yasmin Sooka Syndrome, it is even more than Tamil Modas also have got infected by that, it seems.

    Just for a talk, let’s say “yes, Old King did write in his Manifestos to change the constitution “(at least three times). So now what? Forget about Lankawe; how many parties in Democratic world are keeping their promises? Suppose, he honestly told his supporters and they honestly agreed and voted for him to change the constitutions, but if he change his mind and go and tell them that he wants it not changed, then is that Sumanthiran and Tamils Modas saying the Sinhala Buddhists are going to tell him “no, no, You cannot make any change to that promise”? He said that he would change the constitution, but he did not win; so, is that he always should be stuck with those worlds and in all future elections he should keep losing. What is wrong when said he would change the constitution and he did not win so that he changed his word to win the election in the future.

    Those Yahapalanaya Cheaters are not just sacred to put forward a constitutions for the people to vote; that is of cause not the Sinhalese favorite subject; but they are sacred go and see the Sinhala mass because they promised to bring back law and order, they promised to wipe out the corruption, they promised reconciliation with IC and Tamils, they promised to restore Colombo Pong Cing from China; but in fact, they did the extreme opposite on all those promises. But now they are using Sumanthiran to point the finger at the promise Old King gave to change the constitution and claiming those votes as in their favor. The truth is even 30% not going to vote at this time for Yahapalanaya’s on any of their proposals.

    Man, we can write and talk for months and months on Sumanthiran and Sampanthar’s Secret Solution, but if their theory is 97 % is waiting eagerly to have the constitution changed, then for what the heck those Sinhala intellectuals’ parties are keep delaying and delaying the Secret Solution? Instead of blaming Old king for Nothing, Why can’t they go ahead and change the constitution and put it for the people to vote on that? Is that because they are scared to make a world record of 97% having voted for their new constitution? Come on Tamil Modayas, give me break, please!
