Erratic Presidents & Dirty Tongues

By Granville Perera

Donald John Trump, the global bully and the President of the mighty Super Power, United States of America (USA) has got his brains checked and an all-clear certificate has been issued.  Our charming gentle giant Nishantha Muthuhettigama, MP from the Galle District in the Southern Sinhala bastion was probably the first politician who had his brains examined for sanity in Sri Lanka. Now it looks like, many more in Sri Lanka will have to undergo this important test.

We have a president who says that there are pick pockets amongst his coalition partner and the Young Turk Sirasa Marikkar calls the President a pickpocket. Wonder what made Marikkar deviate from the script provided by his wheeler dealing Maharaja, the sponsor of the political agenda against Ranil Wickremesinghe. Was this rhetoric a plant to destabilize the Yahapalanaya government and throw out Ranil Wickremesinghe from the Premiership? Money can do wonders and lots of opportunities to make people become desperate. Politics can make people go mad as we see this in our idiot boxes daily. Our brain doctors are in for a jolly good time ahead!

President Sirisena who started the pickpocket story too has become so erratic that he is playing to the gallery and seeking cheap popularity for his beleaguered Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) which he pickpocketed from Mahinda Rajapaksa. He is desperate not to be placed 4th in the forthcoming local government elections. He is now hitting hard with his rhetoric at the UNP diehards who crowned him as the executive President, including Ravi Karunanayake who carried him to the hot seat of the Presidency. The bond scam inquiry is typical of his attempt to gain cheap popularity. The COPE committee report and the Prime Minister’s committee report should have been sufficient if followed up with the Attorney General’s department and the suspects investigated and incarcerated.

If he was serious about punishing culprits, he would have negotiated this with Prime Minister Wickremesinghe. Instead, the President thought that he could take his Mudu Walige and thrash the shit out of the United National Party and gain popularity. It is now backfiring on him. The UNP sees this as his strategy to destabilize the UNP and have unleashed the backbenchers to be vocal. At the end of the day, he needs to take his sword out and commit Hara-kiri. He has already done this by asking the Supreme Court whether he can stay six years. The Supreme Court squashed his dreams of an extra year even though his humble servant the Attorney General gave a valiant effort to give him 365 days more. Now, all one could say is “Illang Keawa, Mahinda Wage”.

The President who heads the Cabinet of Ministers should sit through all the proposals and gazette notifications that are to be issued by his government. He is known to sit dumb and let everything go through, then comes out of the cabinet meetings and lambasts the UNP ministers for even proposing changes that he himself approved at the cabinet with his typical gamme kapatiya mentality. This has continued throughout the 3 years of Yahapalanaya and Ranil as PM has not stood by his men or party. For example, on two occasions, he has totally insulted and ridiculed our crown prince Mangala Samaraweera who along with Chandrika Kumaranatunga was the architects to get President Sirisena to eat Aapa. The first incident was when the price of Beer was reduced during the last November budget which the President overruled the day after and now he is infringing on the rights of our female folk to pick up their little shot or work at a place of their choice.

He has also unleashed his “pin amethi “ (the foul-mouth Dilan Perera) to attack his main coalition partner the UNP in and outside parliament. He has never bothered to censure or advice the chit MP to maintain the spirit of cohabitation.

The President is trying hard to take Sri Lanka on a high moral culture even forgetting his son’s attempted pony ride in Passikudah. It is time that we remind ourselves of his Navy commander’s daughter’s THANAPATI fiasco with Enrique Miguel Iglesias for which he threatened to take out his madu walige, which he never did.

If it is morality that our Grama Sevaka is talking about, then he has to stop every female from working in restaurants and prohibit any night shifts for our manikes working in our garment factories and free trade zones as they would not be available for our macho men to be taken care of at night. Almost every 5 star hotels have females working during night shifts, and the majority of housekeepers are females. Anything can happen in guest rooms. Further, It is estimated that there are 40,000 sex workers (known as “Ganikawa”) in the country, and nearly half of them operate in Colombo. What has he done to protect these women?  There are also probably another 500 gays (nangi’s) operating within the streets of Colombo. What has been done about this?

President Sirisena too probably needs an urgent brain scan because he has gone to the extent of claiming that he didn’t intervene when his brother met with a traffic accident. He is also forgetting to mention that he didn’t intervene when another of his brothers was hacked by a villager to death over some love hate relationship with a farmers wife. He also seems to have forgotten how he rushed to Passikudah to rescue his son who attempted a forced pony ride on the Passikudah beach with a senior DIG’s daughter in law. What he also doesn’t claim is the cause for the Rs. 100/KG Naadu rice and the river sand mafia that is controlled by his brothers. There is also the government advertising monopoly by his daughter Chatu. The list could be as long as that of Namal, Yoshitha and Chi-Chi Rajapaksa excesses.

I have heard of a Tamil saying from my neighbor, which goes “if you leave a leech on a comfortable bed, it would get off and go in search of the wet grass”. How true it is when it comes to certain people who have risen to heights never dreamt of in their lives.

    Sirisena days are numbered. He is not going to last even his 5 years. He will go mad when the UNP holds him hostage as they did to chandrika. He has proved that he is worse than Chandrika to record his 35 minute speech at the cabinet. At least Chandrka was subtle and hid it in her handbag

    MY3 and Sobhita were naïve to put trust on the ‘Royal Gang’ and ‘Chaura Regina’ to implement ‘Yahapalanaya’. Sobhita is rotting in hell for dragging the country to the current crisis. MY3 will also eventually join Sobhita. That is the way ‘Karma’ works.

      Eagle Eye: Most Very Rev Sobitha Thero was, if not one of, the only patriot I have come across in this country since 1977.

      No Priest, be it Buddhist or Christian can be compared with him.Not even the so called Mahanayakes- correct me: BENZ NAYAKES

      Please be careful when you redicule people.

    GRANVILLE PERERA: The journallists of your type are the ones destroying Sri lanka. You people are writing anything in order to earn a buck. Do you think people are that dumb unless they are the leeches attached to a certain political party or they are part of the block vote. WHY RANIL WICKRAMSINGHE SHOULD BE IN THAT PRIME MINISTER POST WHEN HE IS THE ONLY PRIME MINISTER IN THE WORLD WHO DESTROYED THE BANKS WITHIN THE FIRST 40 DAYS OF THE 100 DAY GOVT. You know what 100 day govt is. YOu are writing for UNP money. forget the party politics. Why Ranil should be in that position. bond scam is only one. there are so many. See what he has done to ?Sri lankan airlines. what is the cost for Hambanthota when he delayed it for three years. What is the cost for knowing bringing the writing of the new constitution. did not he know when he appoint a christian tamil and LSSPer to write the constitution that would not be working. Why do you want to feed your family this way. forget the party politics. Why Ranil should not go ?

      Why kill the messenger? Are you the son in law of Maithri who tried to collect the commission from the Russian frigate deal through Kill Maharaja? Why are you getting excited when traitor Maithri is exposed. For your information, CT does not pay for articles that appear in it. So, no one is making money. Oh, you must be thinking UNP is paying the way you get paid for lending your as… to Maithri

    Yes, President My3 is not clean as he tries to pretend; I hope more UNP MPs will come up with his past wrong doings including the Australian investigation which has not been given any coverage in SL.. Then, people will judge who is cleaner than the other.
    Similarly, he is a back-stabber; a person who could betray his leader and ‘stab’ him in the back after having a hopper supper and coffee can do any dirty thing in his life for political expediency, and UNP has belatedly realized their folly.
    Anyways, Yahapalana boat is now sinking in muddy water; there is no escape for anyone including the president and PM from public wrath. You should go to villages and speak to them to realize the simmering ground reality. You will see the results on Feb 10 in black and white.

    Granville Perera has cobbled up example cases of the dirty linen soiled by our lawmakers.
    We, the silent Lankan majority always washed our cloths but our lawmakers expect us to pay the laundry bill for their linen!

    Did Ranil complete anything he said. where is Lichchavi-Style Kingdom. Instead within the first 40 days he robbed the banks. that was just ahead the general election probably sirikotha was bankrupt. IT was a VERY RICH – provincial MP from Ampara Area who gave money for the election. He was appointed a federal minister later.
    what happened to his TEN MILLION jobs. He recruited 7000 odd employees with a FAT – RAT Management to the less than 24 air worthy planes of Sri lankan Air lines. IT is beyond repair and sinking further.
    torusim board is no different. the chairman had spent Rs 25 million to promote tourism in europe and had a big party in an expensive hotel. He also got free tickets to New york at the expense of the tourism board.
    Hambanthota screwed up, Trincomalee, ETCA, Mattala scrwed up, IMF camping in Sri lanka, UNHCR is a mess. Sri lanka’s growth rate this year is 0.0%. Sri lanka had growth only because there is no war. Other than nothing because of govt policy changes. So, they are selling everything to overseas companies in order to find money. that is Ranil’s 2015-2020 economic policy.2020-205 economic policy vision 2025 was prepared by amaerican company attachements to church and to CIA. (MCC).

    A cabinet minister who was present in person on that meeting was asked why the New abruptly left the meeting; if he was mad. He rightfully answered when one raises the hand and showing index finger to the crowd, it does not always means that person is angry. In the school that is how the kids show when they go to pee during the class. When asked if he does that frequently and did he has seen a presidential doctor, the minister answered “No, that day he had taken two more extra beers as the Social Media reading that morning was not interesting so he was wild mad on those comments.

    So reporters asked why Mangala followed him to bathroom and Ranil too. He answered there is nothing wrong because he too went to bathroom and if the reporters have not seen in the offices the workers escorting each other to bathroom?

    When asked why only Ravi and Emil got the PCoI report, not others. He answered he did not see that, so it should be lie. “Nobody had been delivered any copy yet. “

    The last question and answer was, CT reported the summary was altered three times on the web to include PM and Ravi and changing the wording but PM said no UNP names are in the report, the Minister said yes it is true we delivered a copy of PM but he did not like to show that to Parliament. At that time the confused reporters were scratching their own back wishing if that could the minister’s face.
    There was a man and woman couple reporter in the returning group. The inquisitive man reporter asked wife “Is Mahindra n UNP” . The suspicious woman reporter pushed him in the pan & fried “How would I know of that if you didn’t know that?”. “Minister was better” man replied.
    That was a possible Scenario one.

      Is that democracy Sirisena style! I suggest you call out all your thugs and prevent the opposition from voting. People have to be reminded that Dudley Senanayake when he contested his first election to the Kegalle seat, organised thugs to preventwhole villages who supported his opponent NHKeerthiratne from voting. People have short memories andDudleyis. NOw being referrred to as a gentleman politician. What a travesty!
