      Secretary, Austin Fernando/President Sirisena, Liars

      From the Grape Vines, Bulath Viones and Vettila Vines….

      While it is common knowledge the state of emergency declared by him for ten days from March 6 th automatically ceases to be valid on the 16 th if it is not extended by parliament after the 16 th midnight , and a gazette notification additionally is not necessary to withdraw it , yet the president who is surrounded by buffoons calling themselves secretaries best known for tomfooleries had also not advised him duly. May we recall on the independence day celebrations too he committed an egregious blunder . He did not know how many years ago Sri Lanka received its independence.

      The parliament adjourned sittings on the 9 th , and was to meet again on the 20 th. If the emergency regulations imposed on the 06 th by the president was in fact to be extended , that should have been done on the 9 th when the parliament met last . That was by a resolution brought in parliament by the ministry of defense under the president himself , and getting it passed. However nothing of that sort took place.

      Though it was the motive of the president by withdrawing the emergency regulation by an unnecessary gazette notification to demonstrate that he is a ‘great Democrat ‘ and score cheap political plus points as usual , in truth his hidden sinister motive was to pave the way for the release of the racists who were arrested in Kandy when the emergency regulations were in force.

      Any doubts harbored by anybody in regard to the reports were cleared when the president took Ulapone Sumangala the robed racist scoundrel together with Gnanassara the rascally monk who is behind all the racial violence to Japan

    Secretary to the President Austin Fernando revoked the state of Emergency. Thank you.
    Austin Fernando recently said ~”Rev Ulapane Sumangala Thero Only Monk In President’s Delegation To Japan”. Austin organised the Thero’s leave.
    PLease tell us Austin: Do you remember who organised the departure of Gnanasara in spite of an arrest warrant? Was Sumangala added to the list after Gnanasara left?

      Yes, indeed. Oh poor Austin did not know that Gnanasara had gone without his knowledge. Oh yes, the arrest warrant was not in the immigration security checking system. It looks like these guys have attacked Muslims. How sad?

    Revoking the emergency is good news for people who wish to be governed by the normal law. What amazes me is the notification itself. Never have I seen notification where it is signed by a person other than the person named in the Gazette itself. If it were to start with “I, Maithripala Sirisena …….” then it should signed by the President himself, as he has done before. (To be precise it should have started with “I, Pallewatte Gamaralalage Maithripala Sirisena,…….). Alternatively if Austin Fernando were to sign it must start with very correctly as “I, Kalupage Austin Fernando, Secretary to the President, being commanded by His Excellency the President, do hereby notify that proclamation issued by His Excellency the President ……….is hereby revoked with immediate effect by His Excellency the President.”. I do not expect the Secretary to the President to dot the i and cross the t of every document that comes before him although in theory he is expected to check on everything before he places his signature. But someone senior should have detected the flaw. I am made to understand that the Secretariat is full of staff officers who are not conversant with basics of public service. Better polish the top office to be in top gear, otherwise how one could expect it to be the nerve center of Sri Lanka?

    “We know who stopped the Sampur Power Plant Project”. This sentence is reported as the words PM Modi put as reply to New King’s “He is the one did it”(Prime Minister selling Hangbangtota harbor to China) talk. We have written here Kegalle Jeyamanne’s death was the first observed crack in the Yahapalanaya and the start of visible splits between the New King-Ranil’s paths. But we pointed out it can’t be denied the mistake of patching SLFP and UNP, who are cat and the dog by nature, by the IC. That is nothing but exactly same mistake like Britain patched Tamil Eelam with Lankawe. New King is not simply an emperor, comparable to Old One in cruelly, larceny, bribes, nepotism, but recently demonstrated he not one step below in destroying those who believe him, too. That is what he did during LG election by cutting the branch he was sitting, to the National Unity Government and Ranil’s UNP. Peace between LTTE-GOSL was being negotiated in the start of 2000. It is in that political harmony, Old King took the power. That, too, is comparable with what happened in March to Muslims. He paid to LTTE to defeat Ranil (as explained in Colombo media). Then he grabbed the power and became the one of the world notorious dictator. Kathirgamar was killed; Tamil- Sinhala Journalists were killed. MIG deal was done in the name of liberating the country from LTTE who helped him to ascend to power (He repeated what Vijaya did to Kuveni); SLMM was sent back. Then he won the war and plunged the country into chaos. Now New King have done all what Old King did, including putting the war crime investigation’s handle, which once Yahapalanaya had taken away from UNHRC, back in the hand of UNHRC. He had remained as the Trojan horse in Yahapalanaya and now has unleashed his terror on all, UNP and SLFP.
    The cat has been drinking the milk in Lankawe, closing the eyes thinking world would not see it. But when he met PM Modi, he found the mistake on that.

    On the other hand, Ranil set the date of LG election to teach a lesson to UNHRC and IC. He thought if he lose it will only be LG, but the IC could be shown the Sinhala Racism’s resolve and thus they will be stopped nagging him to implement the Resolution 30/1. He had a very successful year of 2017 on the preparation for this until unexpectedly at the end of the year the Palestine issue forced America to withdraw the GSP+. That was the result of Ranil, who had become too arrogant by an overly successful year, kicking on the back of the American Ambassador, when he met Ranil to explain their position on Jerusalem Embassy. To compensate that loss, that time Ranil planned to go to India and ask for the Indian GSP+. But again the unexpected happened in LG. He refused to counter the extensive divisive campaign Old Royals were carrying in LG election. Tamils (TNA) disappointedly watching their only political hope, the Secret Solution, falling into racial fire and burning. So the Old Royals won the election, using Ranil’s’ purposeful silent support to them, by not countering Old Royals’ campaign. It gave an opportunity to New King to shoot his arrow on Ranil’s’ head. This was the third biggest challenge in three months for Ranil. Slap Party celebrated victory, as usual, with pogrom against minorities. Now, the Ranil’s one yearlong effort to create “Pillaiyar” statue has delivered a “Monkey” . Ranil’s idea to use LG election against IC in the 37th sitting of UNHRC has back fired and destroyed all his preparation on that. This time, he has not prepared an entourage to UNHRC to defend Lankawe until Yesterday. PM Modi, who was looking for Ranil go there and start to negotiate for the Indian GSP+, saw only New King.

    If Ranil had travelled to India It would have certainly caused his job, while he was in India. Two years ago, when Ranil went to America, he challenged Old King that if he could, tries to remove him from his PM post. The same Ranil by the fear of losing his job cancelled his trip to India. It in that chaos New King went to India.
    Now, India is mad at Lankawe for being cozy with China. But during the war and immediately the years after the war India was cozy with China and Lankawe. American military experts warned India about the China’s String of Pearl. But valiant Sonia employed Shiva Shankar Menon, Narayan in India and Lankawe to collude in swindling the country and sharing the Chinese commission. Nirupamma Rao was placed in America to keep an eye on the American consultants. When the splits started in that Cozy relationship between India and Lankawe, Manmohan Sing naively said publicly “if we say Sri Lanka is not listening, what can we do for that?”. In reality Lankawe still doesn’t listen to India. Lankawe still has not changed a bit. But that was defect when New King met Modi this time. The imbecile, 8th grader thought it is still their old friend Sonia Gang is on the Indian Prime Minister seat and he prepared to fool Modi on his deals. One time GLP released a joint statement with S.M Krishna, FM and went to Japan and denied his statement there.
    Using the China, Yahapalanaya has been squeezing a lot out India, while taking all freebees from India. Within all the foreign white elephant projects in the last 10 years, India built Colombo-KKS rail road was the only one started with real income and delivering net profit. But India was denied any other projects, but was allowed to build Hanuman Statues in the North, where they are seen as Indian Oppression, over and above the Sinhala Oppression.

    The ETCA, which has hung through four or five administrational terms, still has not been passed in Lankawe. Yet Modi had said that he has some understating of Lankawe PM, Ranil. We can see the meaning of it only after Ranil has negotiated the Indian GSP+ with PM Modi.
    Now things in India are changed. Mr. Modi expected Ranil to go there to negotiate for the Indian GSP+. But Only New King went. Unlike Ex Pm Manmohan Singh, Modi, whether it is better or worse, openly had shown his displeasure with New King. This change that took place in India had brought the change in Lankawe too.
    The Emergency regulation that was placed in to curb the riots too back fired, like Ranil’s Political decision of non- campaigning against Old Royals in LG. New King had his Appa feast with PM Modi in India. Then he went to Japan and there, too he had his dessert. Japan sounded like has its skeptic feeling on New Kings Appa Diplomacy talks. Enough was enough. But in Lankawe, the Defense Department has recommended to extent the Emergency to complete their investigation on riots to PM (Ranil). But without listening to that New King has retrieved the Emergency. Even this change could be is only within the scope of cheating UNHRC on its sitting 37. We only can say anything firm on that only after seeing tomorrow and Wednesday’s meeting about Lankawe’s progress in implementing the resolution 30/1.
    In Tamil, they say, Adi Uruvavathu Pola Annan Thambi uthava Madarkal”( Siblings can’t help one like a cane can ). Thanks PM Modi for having made to repeal the Emergency.

    First we have to protest that an introduce Emergency Regulation and Laws after severs years in peace and stability nation undermined by MS, RW and CBK regime since 2015 January 9th?

    Instead of “good governances and rule of law” that ongoing leadership of all UNP rules has undermined nation harmony and unity among community of after end of 2009 war defeated of LTTE of Tamil Ruthless terrorism by MR leadership?
    We have lost peace and reconciliation of majority communities and minority under UNP rules of CBK of SLFP and RW of UNP politics of democracy? We do not want any racial ratios that ugly head regain in our soil any means………land of Sri lanka.
    While by an introduce of law of Emergencies has again proved was failure to addressed rule of law in country by destroy harmony of all communities in Island?….. under leadership of RW, CBK and MS ?
    Law of emergencies of declared by President Secretary of Austin Fernando are Not the solutions of bring that control of harmony and reconciliation of conflicts between of communities in norms of government and rule of democracy system of governances .,,,, not suited to ours democracy !

    Withdraw is welcome but it was grave error of misrule of democracy by current government ?
    We have upheld unitary character of Island of Republic Sri lanka? And the unity of all people of in many nationalities…..Lanka

    Thank you so much Austin. You are a much better Secretary than the previous Wijekoon who was Goda’s man.

    I could not stand Wijekoon.

    Tell me Austin, how come Rev Ulapane Sumangala Thero ended up in the meeting room with Japanese PM and Japanese ministers? He only a Monk who operates in a temple environment. He does know about economics and foreign relations.

    Same applies to Somaweera Chandrasiri and Piyasiri Wijenayake. Both are morons and idiot ninpins.

    Given that Gnanasara is a goood friend of Sumangala thero one need not be Einstein to know it was Sumangala who organised Gnanasera to hop into Sirisena’s entourage (plane) to Japan.

    Jaffna Muslim reports that Muslims are very disappointed that minister Faizer Musthafa is a member of the SL delegation to UNHRC where they are expected to say that everything is normal in Sri Lanka, and plead to further postpone action under the 2015 motion passed unanimously by the UNHRC.
    And, that Sri Lanka Muslims living in Europe have planned to demonstrate against the untruths expected to be trotted out, by the delegation.
