Several UNP Parliamentarians confirmed that fake Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa has tendered his letter of resignation from the Prime Minister’s post.

Mahinda

UNP MPs Akila Viraj Kariyawasam, Harsha de Silva and Ruwan Wijewardene, who are currently with ousted PM Ranil Wickremesinghe at Temple Trees, confirmed the story.

Meanwhile, Parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa confirmed that the former President has “decided” to resign from premiership.

“To ensure stability of the nation, Former President @PresRajapaksa has decided to resign from the Premiership tomorrow after an address to the nation. The SLPP with Frm President, SLFP & others will now work to form a broader political coalition with President Sirisena,” Namal Rajapaksa said.

    Fake PM Mahinda Rajapaksa, MP for Kurunegala,

    Thank you sir. Get back to Medamulana, and take a rest. The idiot Sirisena, destroyed you second time, and almost destroyed the country.

    Let the idiot Gon Sirisena keep demonstrating his idiocy.

      Initially the blame has to go to Ranil for inaction. Rajapaksa manipulated foolish Sirisena. Ultimately the back door entry has backfired. Rajapaksa is not in a position to entirely give up politics because his prime purpose was to protect his family of looters. In the meantime the Nation suffered severely.

      Amarasiri ,

      The episode must be made a compulsory subject to O/L exam and the
      subject be named as ” Any fool can become a president in Lanka.”
      This is what one time president and the present one , together with a
      bunch of their cohorts, loudly , locally and internationally exhibited !
      The only courage they had in their mind was , in my view was that
      THEY CAN SCARE THE REST ! They knew the law well but didn’t care
      because they believed , once the power is in their hands , everything
      else will fall in line exactly as before ! Either way their calculation
      proved they were wrong ! Also it proved they are either a bunch of
      fools or a bunch of conspirators ! Both situations prove beyond an
      iota of doubt that THEY ARE NOT FIT EVEN TO REMAIN IN THE
      COUNTRY AS ORDINARY CITIZENS LET ALONE CITIZENS’
      REPRESENTATIVES !

      Very good picture CT.

      That says almost everything.

      This man ‘s abusive acts were illegal and we all expected that he will have to resign since it was all beyond legalities.

      But my question is why UNP has to bear the loads of shits left by Rajakshes on and on ?

      And this time, all the parties that support UNP should make them clear, that PUNISHEMENTS to Rajakshe crimes should be held the number one priority.

      Mr. Amarsiri

      Please don’t use the word Idiot to describe Sirisena in my estimation Idiots are much highly advance in intellectual capacity.
      Which begs the question how did this individual manage to get to the highest political position in Sri Lanka.

        Lenonard ,

        1. “Idiots are much highly advance in intellectual capacity.”

        Amarasiri’s apologies to Idiots for comparing Sirisena to them. Perhaps Amarasiri should have used an alternate word. Can you suggest one or more from the list below, instead of Idiot?

        a stupid person.
        fool, ass, halfwit, dunce, dolt, ignoramus, cretin, moron, imbecile, simpleton; informaldope, ninny, nincompoop, chump, dimwit, dumbo, dummy, dum-dum, loon, dork, sap, jackass, blockhead, jughead, bonehead, knucklehead, fathead, butthead, numbskull, numbnuts, dumb-ass, doofus, clod, dunderhead, ditz, lummox, knuckle-dragger, dipstick, thickhead, meathead, meatball, wooden-head, airhead, pinhead, lamer, lamebrain, peabrain, birdbrain, mouth-breather, scissorbill, jerk, nerd, donkey, nitwit, twit, boob, twerp, hoser, schmuck, bozo, turkey, chowderhead, dingbat, mook; vulgar slangasshat

        a mentally handicapped person.

        2. “Which begs the question how did this individual manage to get to the highest political position in Sri Lanka”

        Would in Sheep’s clothing, Trojan Horse, An Ass in Presidential Clothing? Got the trustworthy people fooled.Remember, Satan is supposed to have fooled Adam and Eve, and got them thrown out of Heaven, per Holy Bible.

        “Don’t forget because of this “fake” PM we have a country to live.”

        All the credit should go to the young men and women who fought the war and lost lives and limbs.

        Mahinda was good at shamelessly taking all the glory. Even his son who he “sacrificed” to the cause never even went near the theatre of war ………. that’s how good he was at hoodwinking the gullible Lankans. Gotta give him that! ………. But the truth needs to be told ……. time and time again.

      Dear Saman,
      .
      I have not forgotten that Prabhakaran was the scourge of Sri Lankans, particularly of us, the Sinhalese.
      .
      However, analysis of that is a complex business. Is it not true that, in many senses, he was our creation?
      .
      Yaaaaawn! Why? Past experience has shown me that unless I conclusively demonstrate that I belong to the “ethnic group known as the Sinhalese” you will label me as a Tamil masquerading as a Sinhalese.
      .
      Are you not aware that Rajapaksa and his supporters fall back on racism as a matter of habit? Fortunately for us, all the Supreme Court judges involved in these court cases (how many? let me see: 7 in the order that was made yesterday + 2 of the same as yesterday’s 7 + Eva Wanasundera = 8 ) were Sinhalese.
      .
      There’s a guy named Lalith Dehideniya, also in the Supreme Court:
      .
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supreme_Court_of_Sri_Lanka
      .
      You will find there that there are two more who have been nominated but have not yet been confirmed by Sirisena. Why not? Ask My3, who wasn’t such a bad guy when I helped elect him.
      .
      Saman, what would you do if, tomorrow morning, you wake up to find that Abraham Sumanthiran is the Prime Minister? Commit suicide, perhaps.
      .
      Let’s forget many American WASPS voting for “Black Obama” in 2012 and 2016. Ireland used to be such a conservative whites only Catholic country only about thirty years ago. Family planning not allowed. Even now it is 92.4% White.
      .
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_the_Republic_of_Ireland
      .
      Who is now their Prime Minister?
      .
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leo_Varadkar
      .
      I know that this is really strange; I’m not suggesting that we should emulate all this, but the fact probably is that you’ve been to many “White Countries”. I’ve never been outside Asia.

      He did nothing special. He just happened to be at the right place at the right time. It was those brave young soldiers who sacrificed with their blood sweat and tears, and even their lives,who brought us this new found freedom. MR and immediate family members manipulated the media to promote himself and project his image as the country’s war hero. If he was truly a son of the soil, he would not have robbed the country blind by building airports, harbors, stadiums and film studios in his own name, including only developing his own home town base, but rather invested in its people and the whole country, specially the war ravaged North and East, and also prevented his family members put their fingers in the ‘cookie jar.’ Its true, we suffered many military setbacks, until the battlecry changed to ‘fight to the finish.’ The leadership will always take credit when there is success, but if it had gone awry, easy way out is to blame others, and live to fight another day.

        “It was those brave young soldiers who sacrificed with their blood sweat and tears, and even their lives,who brought us this new found freedom. “

        Didn’t we have freedom before 1956?
        How did we arrive at a point where you needed the “brave young soldiers who sacrificed with their blood sweat and tears, and even their lives,”?
        One doesn’t have to be brave to kill innocent civilians irrespective of their race, religion, gender, language, ………………
        Vellupillai Prabaharan and Hindians won two elections and a war for Dr Mahinda.

        You should be ashamed of yourself why the majority people failed to keep peace in this country from 1956, particularly from 1971.

        The actual trouble started well before 1956, Mahinda and his clan benefited enormously from racist state, racist people, racist politics, racist Mahasangha, humongous hypocrisy, long established corrupt practices, impunity, ………. and hid behind Mahawamsa, Buddha sasana, bogus colonial anger, …………..

        When ordinary people are not given their due respect then you have problem.

      He is the person and slfp government built this 80 billion USD economy just in 10 years which he took only 20 billion In 2005 and made this countries percapital to 3800 usd from 1000 USD in 2005. Unp the economic managment idiots and people like Jr ,premadasa or gaminil lalith did not have an ability to at least uplift the srilankan economy up to 15 billion USD at least similar to somalia or ethiyopian economic size during their 1977- 1994. Slfp governments and mahinda economic management master brains and architects of this huge 80 billion usd business economy of srilanka we salutes you. If any one arguing that unp can have atleast 1% economic management capabilities that slfp has please show us the economic performance records of unp. If unp comes to power no business, starvation, no proper food in the country for people, no money circulation will come back again as same as their rule for 2015- 2018. Simply people have to collect food from dust bins if unp governments comes to power. Country again going to be a somalia for another 10 months until the next presidential election . slfp governments if you come to power the high life style, rich life style , business, money circulation and economy will be very high position but remind one thing you all can’t be Hitlers all time since there will be a courts and justice even you have the back of entire business community, entire government mechanism and your business class media. Unp going to make srilanka as somalia as they made in very recent 2015- 2018 .if any one believe that unp will not make srilana as somalia please show the economic performance of unp. Other wise no point of talking and crying for unp under serious unp infearity complex.

      Saman,
      No, it’s the other way around. We have this fake Sinhala-Buddhist superhero because he came along at a time when the country’s 30-year civil war was drawing to an end due to the valour and sacrifice of thousands of soldiers, the brave decisions of several military commanders, the astute leadership of previous presidents, and finally the sacrifice and resolve of ordinary citizens. International community’s zero tolerance for terrorism after 9/11, military assistance by several countries, changing geopolitics of the region, and the increasing blunders of Prabhakaran – all have to be factored in as well. The myth that Mahinda and Gota won the war single-handedly was a myth deliberately created to hog all the glory in order to assume arbitrary power to loot the country and kill political opponents with impunity. In short, the Rajapaksas are shameless posers and parasites. Good riddance.

    A picture says one thousand stories. Look at his face, it looks like, he lost the world. Democracy and the rule of law is winning. MR’s and Shitsena’s jungle law is flying in the winds. We commends the JVP’s move to take the coup movers to task and their efforts to restore the status quo. Always, when the God wants to destroy a man, first he makes him mad. That’s what happening to MR and Shitsena. Namal baby says they want to restore stability in the country, after destabilising and doing untold damages to the country for over the last six weeks. Their tricks to come to power through the back door, by illegal means badly back fired on them, and it’s going to be a Herculean task to get back their respect and credibility back again.

      Hope atleast the Vajiranamas , and the Malwattes change their tune of thuggery and Looting is not acceptable in the Lord Buddhas Philosophy , so too accepting looted statewealth is totally Unacceptable Sirs!!
      Teach the next generation atleast the values of good honest living Sirs.
      You seem to have been Totally blind , Totally deaf when MR &Co came crying Wolf and donated state wealth in the name of the Sacred Lord Buddha was a shame and embarrassment to the Religion.
      They have DUPED the entire nation including the Noble Reverends !!! Ah! Shame!!
      Lord Buddha has not saved the Sinned MR & Co.
      God is Great, in my Belief. God is Great in my Simple way of life.

    Another victory for TNA lawyers “Kanaga Isvaran Sumanthiran” team. This is a fail and pass judgment. But their failure will not come out because the pass is practically crippling the Fake government PM and ministers. People attention is on that.
    The TNA lawyers’ team lost on seeing Justice Wanasundara out of this. But, in the court, Kanaga Isvaran wished her happy retirement and she is leaving with day’s case. Old King might have had a naive hope on her. That is what scared the lawyers. But thing are too tied for the judges to move around and this too again unanimous. Eva, in her last few days, might have started to feel the error of having made a judicially wrong comment that Old King offering her the job in a romantic way.
    Some news is suggesting Old King was with New King about the time judgement was released. They suggest he would resign, But he was waiting for the verdict to save his face. If Old King decides continue, after New Year, the land will perish. Old King is about go into history below Kashiappa-but not as Dutugamunu. The situation has passed that even if he resigns he will not be able to save his face.
    The courts have repeatedly insisted that anything Old and New King are doing is sheer illegal things. Legal sense is emerging in the mind of the people that the Aanduwa is doing only one thing that is illegal. This is piercing the mask of their long built impunity grants they offered to each other on the crime spree they conducted during 2005-2016. Some of these crimes are not time limited for legal action. Someone will take them to the court once Ranil hand over the UNP leadership to someone else and this impunity iron dorm is starting to melt. (Posted somewhere else too)

      Yes !!! Certainly 3 Cheers to TNA lawyers too for taking up the case. Congratulations to you for braving the Thugs against the Democracy.

    are they valid contracts

      The deals were not new but ones in process. MR may have sought to bait China, but China was wise all along not to get sucked into the dispute unlike other countries.
      *
      Rest assured that China will not crawl after any regime here or elsewhere to get deals through.
      It has been those that talked big on certain projects that tucked their tails between the legs to ask for the Chinese projects to continue.
      I disapprove of the Port City project, but the concept belonged to an earlier era when RW was PM. (The UNP could have been firm, but yielded partly because it believes in developments of that nature.)
      Hambantota harbour was not a Chinese idea either, but one that the protesting powers refused to handle.

        “Rest assured that China will not crawl after any regime here or elsewhere to get deals through.”

        Well China doesn’t crawl after any regime however China does buy politicians and functionaries outright to what it wants.

        You must be living in Chinese cloud-cuckoo-land.

        China’s ZTE third largest Telecommunication company bribed $12.8 Millions to officials to secure contract in West Africa.

        In Africa as well as in other countries China lends money to build infrastructures.
        ” In exchange for most Chinese financial aid to Africa, Beijing requires that infrastructure construction and other contracts favor Chinese service providers: 70 percent of them go to “approved,” mostly state-owned, Chinese companies, and the rest are open to local firms, many of which are also joint ventures with Chinese groups.[19] In this sense, China’s financing to Africa, including aid, creates business for Chinese companies and employment opportunities for Chinese laborers, a critical goal of Beijing’s Going Out strategy.” –

            “Ignorance is bliss” for those who lacked Tamil crook lawyers in their time to have their PhD used to get them British citizenship. Like Manohara, the grapes hung too high were sour grapes. Should we get into the teaching and other appointments in North by the Old Brother Prince’s Sub King, who declared on the arrival of Old Royals to power that “Honey Tell them I am Back”.

            Ignorance is bliss to those who cannot understand the judges’ verdicts in English, but only can raise their tail reading some Sinhala Buddhist racists’ propaganda materials. Otherwise they would stop quipping but will get into details analysis. We all always offered them to bring the judgement from the Brooklyn court register and explain us that where the said lawyers are labelled as crooks. What is holding them?

            But in any case trying to show unrelated, another lawyer’s case to justify Sinhala Buddhist racist Manohara’ s loss is only a pathetic action by quippers.

            Sinhala Buddhist Racists lost and it’s the end their history. They won’t come back anymore. We said this here one and half month ago. Weda ivarai!
            But what we see, on the sight of Old Royals are leaving, they are back on quipping. Shame on them!

Under unp – jvp government country is going to be the same somalia again as 2015- 2018 for another 10 months

        Citizen,

        ” He is the person and slfp government built this 80 billion USD economy just in 10 years which he took only 20 billion In 2005 and made this countries percapital to 3800 usd from 1000 USD in 2005. ”

        Before I start, I have to give a caution that I am not defending UNP’s economic model which disenfranchised the most productive labor of that time, the upcountry Tamils, lead to eventual Nationalization of British Tea companies and crippled Lankawe in London Tea Auction, thus fed the cyanide capsule for Lankawe FDI forever. Neither had I ever believed the Lankawe Central Bank’s statistics which are only cooked up in Governors’ laptops. Still that should not affect your argument when you wish to cite CB data.

        You need to understand that the growth is, whether it is in low rate or high rate, it is parabolic. 1 million grows in 10 years only to 4 million; not even to 10 million, at Lankawe rate that you cite. Same way the 20 billion grows to 80 billion. There is nothing surprise in that. But Lankawe’s registered growth is average 4%. No magic took place during the period you want to adore, much below to other South Asian open economies. The only defect in the period you are mentioning is the assets are white elephants, unproductive and backed behind by loss making loans. Wrongly, the activity of building up these has been counted as $80B. In any case $80B is just only 4 times of a one family’s foreign deposit. That family grew up from a middle class to one of the world’s’ richest family in that short time. Comparing that family’s growth rate, Lankawe growth rate 4% may be only four in one trillion. (I cannot express such a number in percentage) They took care of them very much higher than Lankawe, if they have cared of Lankawe.

          The debt ratio of srilanka was during the slfp rule is only 71% and which they got 101% on 2005. Slfp of mahinda brought 1690 million Foreign direct investment in one year which was less than 200 million USD in 2005. Srilanka became top economic performer during mahindas slfp period in south Asia ,they have maintain 6.2% average economic growth rate in their 10 years, they built huge infrastructure development roads highways, ports including Colombo south port, schools ,laboratories. They are the people introduced high tech urban development in srilanka. Of course slfp governments are not pathola governments like unp they dictators and Hitlers but they are great economic managers. My point is the government like unp or people like Jr,premadasa, lalith ,gamini or Ranil who are unable to uplift the srilankan economy up to at least 15 billion USD even similar size to Somalian economy how we can expect to do the huge business capitalist 80 billion USD economy which was architected by toplevel capitalist slfp master managers. Commonly known unp knows only the mixed janasaviya poor economies .they do not know any thing about slfp capitalist economy of slfp.there are all highranking business class are with mahindas slfp.not the pettah welanthos unp considered as a unp business class. No point of arguing about unp since they are very Democratic and idiots in economic management and they have proof that again in 2015- 2018. They made the srilanka in to somalia during this period. If you can proof that unp is at least 1% capable of doing slfps capitalist business economy please show their economic performance records.unp done some thing for agriculture but they are utter idiots in handling huge business capitalust economies architected by slfp master managers. That is my point .and I’m also not accepting the Hitler rule of slfp governments as well

    How do you resign from a position that never was? According to the SC the dissolving of parliament was not legal. so any appointments based on that cannot be legal or valid.

    I cannot help being irritated and frustrated whenever Namal Rajapakse, a prat, always rushes with statements and comments as if he is the spokesman of the SLPP & SLFP on all matters and hog an undue lime-light for himself. Is the fact that he is the son of Mahinda Rajapakse enough to place him in the position of “know -all guy” ? Why are the press giving him importance? I can understand the sycophants clinging to him and keeping him on a pedestal that is “too big for his boots”, but should the Sri Lankan people accept the one who has used his father’s position when he was the President to resort to excesses, corruption and running amok as one who could be trusted with their destiny? What are his political experiences, long history of services to the people, and sacrifices? Where would he be of if not for his father’s position and money to go with it? He should be placed where he belongs to—in jail, with others in his family for their abuse of power and position and misdeeds.

    The picture speaks , not thousand words , million words . Well done C T . He did not
    ‘decide’ to resign , he was ‘disgraced’ and “OUSTED BY THE LEGISLATURE , BY THE
    JUDICIARY AND BY THE GENERAL PUBLIC.” The crooks are still trying to comfort
    themselves with false and wrong word use ! There’s no escape for them from the
    hell they designed and put into use for the last 48 days ! They are now tagged !
    None of them should be allowed to return to the legislature in the next general
    election ! They are a dangerous lot to the POLITICS OF THE COUNTRY. PEOPLE
    MUST NOT FORGET , NEVER , THAT THERE’S A GANG TAT IS ROAMING THE
    STREETS OF THE COUNTRY WITH MALICIOUS INTENT OF ROBBING THEIR
    RIGHTS AND FREEDOM WITH THEIR CONSENT WHICH IS DANGEROUS THAT
    EQUALS ONLY SUICIDE !

    President should be taken to task for allowing fake PM to adress the nation.
    Who is going to bear all the expenses incurred in respect of maintaing those of fake PM and his illegal cabinet since they were sworn in on 26 th Oct and until up to now?

    The lost to the nation so far staggering over USD 1 billion since the prasident staged this coup. We should not leave single stone unturned to find a way to prosecute this president for treason and recover the entire cost lost to the nation

    It is pity

    It appears, New King is saying lies to the mass about the meeting he is having with other leaders. News suggested last night meeting with Ranil and Karu was mainly about his impunity. Nut he said it was about his offering the PM position to Karu and Karu and Ranil replied to that as they would get back after putting the request in party meeting.
    Though it appears it is pretty sure where Old King is heading, but the future on New King is very uncertain & tumultuous. He need to have released him from the current legal menus and should do reasonably good in turning back white flag murders on Old King, which is suspected Old King put the frame work and command orders but appointed New King to oversee.
    Now New King is saying he and Old King are one and they would sit in Opposition one the new government is sworn in. This will split the SLFP further as many leaving to UNP. With the current mood of the Court, if New King goes to court against those who leave to UNP, he may not faire good on that too. This may mean, after New Year, SLFP Is New King and New King is only one in SLFP.

    The photo on the top might be from CT’s file. Because Old King’s Face now might be beyond recognizable because the Supreme Court has repeatedly thrown Acid on his face. His face cannot be saved now. Irreparable !

    Resign from Premiership? That is nonsensical and a hog wash! Are these guys novices in Parliament? I thought once a NCM is passed in the ‘House’, the PM, Cabinet and Parliamentary Secretaries cease to function. If one is a true Democrat, one should observed those norms! But not MR & Co as they are virtual Dictators and are not inclined to follow Democratic norms & Principles. They may argue that they did not accept the NCM (for various reasons). If that may be the case, there is an acceptable process. Boycotting the ‘House’ is not one of them. They should have tabled a motion either rejecting the NCM in the House or tabled a NCM motion against the Speaker (as they claimed he was biased). Obviously they could not do either of those as they did not, in actual fact, have the numbers, although they pretended and claimed to have the majority. But instead, they continued to create a ‘scene’ and take the country down the precipice and refused to abdicate power, They also continued to fool the People with their fabricated tomfoolery.
    Now their true colours have been revealed and exposed to the SL People by the Judiciary and they stand stark naked before the People!
    May I request the Authorities to take swift action forthwith, to punish in an appropriate way (remove civic rights?), ALL those who were involved in this failed ‘coup’?
    May I also ask that the Report re: alleged ‘coup’ on the night of 8 Jan, 2015 and the Report re: Killings of inmates at Welikada Prison be released to the Public? If this is not done by the new Government, may I ask Civil groups and/or active private citizens to get this information via RTI Act? There are many folks of the former regime who need to be indicted for ALL the crimes they have allegedly committed during their reign. Get cracking with this exercise before these scoundrels raise their heads again! Please also indict ALL the People (including Politicians) who have been committing crimes over the last 3.5 years.

    Namal Baby “To ensure stability of the nation, Former President @PresRajapaksa has decided to resign from the Premiership tomorrow after an address to the nation. The SLPP with Frm President, SLFP & others will now work to form a broader political coalition with President Sirisena,” Namal Rajapaksa said.

    “…..will now work to form a broader political coalition with President Sirisena…”

    the narrower scheming to become PM thorough the back door failed miserably ……now they want a broader political coalition….

    At last Mahinda has realized that he destabilized the nation. Let him ‘address’ the nation and apologize for the crime he has committed. Who is going to pay for his sins?
    After addressing the Nation I hope he will lose his ‘address’ and take a well earned rest so that he will not be disturbed.

    When the Impeachment motion against Sirisena is taken up in Parliament MaRa and
    his Parliamentarians should join hands with the JVP, UNP, TNA and vote for it. By this move MaRa will retain some respect .Also he could pay-back Sirisena for double-crossing him twice.

    While I am extremely pleased with the outcome, I do hope Ranil will learn from his past mistakes. Else the UNP will be decimated in the next general election. SLPP will have a 2/3 majority with Weerawansa, Vasudeva etc having the last laugh, and end of democracy as we know it.

    Mr Wickramasinghe please listen to your MP’s specially from the districts, look after the farmers, small businesses, government works, pay speacal attention to the cost of living etc and stop listening to your Blue and Gold buddies who does not know seems to know what is happening outside the Colombo cocktail circuit.

    Learn to mingle/talk with the junior and hard working UNP’s who work tirelessly to bring the UNP to power. If you dont believe me, just take a secret sample poll among the provincial members of the UNP to ascertain how popular you are.

    Good luck

    The word “fake” shouldn’t be misused.

    But if somebody say fake president to MS & fake PM for RW, there’s a ground to accept it even though it may hurt many.

    MS became the president as a common candidate to fulfill the requirement of the UNP for it’s being unable to compete with RW.
    It’s doubtful whether the people voted for MS were genuine votes for MS or on behalf of the UNP & MS the president appointed PM RW became the PM with 48 seats & later managed to make it 105 thanks to MS to form a minority govt.

    So both of them deserve the adjective fake.

    Anil, I agree. RW should now reflect on his past, and move forward to make the Party more broad based especially at rural level.
