Gammanpila Rejoins The Government

Deputy General Secretary of the Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU), Udaya Gammanpila who left the coalition government few weeks ago along with other members of his party to support common Opposition candidate Maithripala Sirisena, re-joined the government as he announced his decision at a media briefing in Colombo a short while ago.

Gammanpila said he spent two sleepless nights contemplating on his decision because right from the beginning he had no wish to work in collaboration with former president Chandrika Kumaratunga and Opposition leader, Ranil Wickremesinghe.

He said he will quit the JHU and support President Rajapaksa’s victory independently since he does not represent the will of the majority in his party.

    Mr. Udaya Gammanpila is still a playful boy of 15 years, travelling in by “Yal Devi” train, getting off at getting on the train. He doesn’t have a definite destination. One thing Mr. Udaya Gammanpila don’t kill your self getting off the train because it happened to Loku Athula.

      I believe had this Gommanpila drank more of simmered water, could become average minded person.

      This man has absolute no word. Some times I feel his thoughts are not far from that current philantrophist -kudu Duminda.
      Besides, I thought as promised he would bring all the statistics about the expenses made during his WEP election.

        I do not know how old he is – however I think he is much more mature than Champika who still remain with Common Opp. guys – I really do not understand how Champika is going to promote good governance and democracy with an outfit where CBK and Ranil are players ??? – MS who came to an understanding with UNP again came to an understanding with JHU also – why should two parties on the same platform come to two different understandings – which implies two understandings are not overlapping – What I gather from th1s is — MS will come to any understanding with anybody as long as they promise to bring voters to their side and will not care two hoots about what is appearing on the understanding – I think the fate of promises he gives now will be same — I think Champika and Ven Athuraliye Thero will understand this logic and follow Gammanpilla before they become history – Voters please understand – the need of the day is not the removal executive e Presidency – but strengthening the Parliament and have strong opposition with uncorrupted young blood which can provide necessary checks and balances – Majority now says MR gov is bad then we must remove him and handover the Gov. to a better outfit – Now where is that outfit – Does anybody seriously believe the motley outfit whose players are CBK/MS – Ranil and his hungry wolves represent a better outfit — We all know what they have done to this country during their past tenures so there is no reason to believe that they will be different this time – Please note we have to keep Executive Presidency – for security reasons and for speedy implementation of development agendas – what we should do is not to allow the misuse of EP – under the prevailing political environment the best option to achieve this end is to strengthen the parliament with strong opposition – Educated people in this country must get together to educate our voters not to elect idiots and thugs to the parliament as well as local gov. bodies – At present the current administration is heavily rotating around MR and if we remove him from the centre entire country will go into chaos –

          why should we need to think that foreign conspiracy is there ? At the time Geneva sessions were there, people were cheated by saying Electric chair is ready for President. Now again to cheat the very same asking about NGO conspiracies as has been lying by Buruwanse the mouth peace of stupid UPFA- people will have to react this time …. for a change. Enough is enough. Rajapakshes should be sent home or Hague.

            Hinnihamy,
            Gommanpila had never been a clean politician. Rember how he got on to the stage with Gota ? And whether he made any clear statement as to why he violated the law. Actually, that action should have banned him from contesting last time. But the authoritian rulers allowed him and even murderers to abuse more.
            In today s context, Duminda s AND Gonmanpilas are easily bred while senior men and women and all other educated folks stay isolated.
            Who thought a former president is being assulated to the manner they have been doing right at the moment. State TV senders have become their household TV channels. State carriage srilanken has become their pvt TAXi. How many of millions if not billions have they been wasting for their selfishness ?
            While the poor of the poor is becoming even more poor to this day.
            They talk about the standard that the country has reached – but globally seen, even Ethiopia and severla other far poor states are also being developed today. Long waging war held srilanka isolated but since 83 all the presidents did their best to solve it but the relay race was won by MR – not by his own dedicions also considerin ghte downfall of the LTTE organisation by 2004. Now they talk about grabing all credit to their hand even forgetting the Army leader who commanded the army at the time war war fought to end. These ignorants shouod be marginalized from the public to the very same manner LTTERs were marginalized by world leaders alleviating srilanken internal problem at that time. CBK ‘s FM Late Kadirgamara s yeoman service banned LTTE in western and american soils. THere MR and all others were iin previous govt. If MR alone broughtt he war victory, he could also join previous govts making decisions. And contradictorily the man who is said to be the only leader to have eliminated the LTTE terror in the island to fail increase civil crime rate in the country today is the other most important question among the many. Today anyone will kill the other witout any problems and people have been treated like ANIMALS.. there is no rule of law in the country .. justice is made a dream in a country where these values were enjoyed in decades ago.

      “re-joined the government as he announced his decision at a media briefing in Colombo a short while ago.”

      MaRa told him we will rig the election and I will win.

      Though many were in the view that this UG could be an honest person, I never trusted him. Even if he asked 100 bugs to be spent for his previious PE campaign, there I thought he should be not far different from ruling thugs and corrutped goons. Howver, now we see how the man really ticks. These are very examples to see that our candidates are born camelians – no doubt he should have been offered a large sum of tax payers funds asking him to back the campaign of most corrupted lanken leader Mahinda Jarapakshe.

      Once Twice & Trice, Hammer Down.! Gammanpila soldout..!!

      #SriLanka #Lanka #MaRa #Hitler #Election #Cricket #Sinhala #mara
      Story of the modern Hitler. creative video see

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=IKHJG5ztL68

      JHU Deputy General Secretary get sold out at a privet auction. This is another fake patriotic Provincial council level leader who is a good match to the Fake Mahinda Rajapakse.

      Tiran Allas negotiated the crossover deal with this traitor who managed to climb the nationalistic political ladder and letdown the True Singhala patriotic voters of Colombo District. The final bid for his life long reputation built within the castle of Singhala Buddhist stronghold now sold for just 300 million rupees.

      We have been looking up to the young leaders of JHU with pride and love for the sacrifice they made together and it just took few days to betray the innocent masses of Sri Lanka who had lots of hope from this team. Some say it is a big blow on JHU & the alliance while some others say it is good to throw out the rotten egg from the basket to keep the good eggs for consumption. I believe in the second thought and hence this will not have much of an effect on the future of JHU.

      From the point of New Democratic Alliance, They have a net gain on the vote base in this movement. Hirunika moved over to MS with a total number of 139,000 votes and Udaya moved in to MR Camp with only 115,000 votes. So the net gain to MS is nearly 25,000 votes

      Therefore, it is a gross loss and a defeat for Udaya Gammanpila for his future. It can be measured and quantified by looking at the public responses and the talk of the town.

      They say, The future of Gammanpila is ruined by Tiran & Gota just for three hundred million rupees.

      Could the Gammanpila justify his own inner feelings of betraying the honorable people of the Colombo District?

      Not sleepless nights….he got prior warning that the regime’s goons are getting ready for a blood bath to take over the President’s post by force. Gota is ready with the ammunition and Basil is ready with the “computer gilmart”. They will manhandle the election monitors, threaten the officials, stuff the ballot boxes, chase away voters, steal the votes, fiddle with the election results and finally threaten the Elections Commissioner. When you go to court, the fake CJ will punish the plaintiff and award compensation to MaRa. Brother Chamal will declare in Parliament that MaRa won with a resounding majority.
      The question is……
      Are the People ready to take to the streets????

    This man campaigned last time on the platform saying he had no money for his election campaign and was asking people to donate. Today he joins a band rogues and thugs in gov who have robbed from the people. Whatever Ranil & Chandrika might have done in the past, are nothing compared to the rampant corruption and mismanagement by this government. This man has clearly lost his way and his moral standards and values.

      This man Gommanpila was the only politician who took to the stage with nation s executioner – Gota and never thought the deed was against election guilde lines. Again and again he argued that it was not a violation though the man is said to be a lawyer. I cant even see the man s behavoiur from day one – we can be happy with Hirunka backing Opposition canddiate for election victory. No doubt, come ahead there will be more that will join oppo leader since people have reached to the levels that one can call – no go in terms of being unable to bear the the devious agendas of ruling idiots.

    Another boneless and manless stupid being got together with robbers to support dictator who has fed his bloodless family members to survive for next few centuries.
    Even most animals are capable and able to understand the real situation and the true character of Mahinda Rajapaksa but unfortunately these two legged animals can not understand it.

    Hope wise people understand them well and will expel them on Thursday the 08th of January in 2015.

    We need a very pure atmosphere for our unblemished and pure leader Mr.Maithreepala Sirisena to lead this country without rapists, robbers, thugs, lairs and corrupted henchmen of Mahinda Rajapaksa.

      Okay Saman to whom do you think we should handover the power from Mahinda- To a Gov. consisting CBK/MS ,Ranil and his hungry wolves ??? – we all know what these guys have done to this country during their tenures at the helm – do you rally expect these guys to be better than Mahinda – Gammanpila have more common sense than most of the guys in this blog – I hope others in JHU will follow Gammanpila

    This is a dispensable mediocrite in a party specialising in back-stabbing. Said to be a close relative of anti-Indian and anti-Tamil lawyer Gomin Dayasiri. Though Udaya G claims to have studied law in Australia he can hardly express himself well in English. His only forte is also a strong anti-Tamil, anti-Indian, anti-minority bias – the raison d’etre of the pseudo-Nationalist JHU that is linked to some politicised men high-up in the army.

    Backstabbing in the JHU began with that unprincipled maverick S.L. Gunasekera, followed by that habitual turncoat Tilak Karunaratne. The evil behind the continuing conspiracy was Champika R – in cohorts with Udaya G – to corner the National List MP position on offer. Once Champika became MP the JHU took a strong anti-minority position – attacking Christian churches and increasing the ante against the Muslims that resulted in the Rajapakses shutting his mouth by making him a Cabinet Minister.

    Gammanpila’s change of tactics may have been influenced by the able and balanced Gomin Dayasiri, believed to be close to the Rajapakses now that there are deep divisions in the JHU – until now a close and strong Rajapakse ally.

    We welcome Gammanpila back to base, where there national forces remain in Sri lanka, that under leadership of MR ruling alliances in playing vital role of Political, Economic and Social development present political land scape in our nation..

    No any other national movement except MR ruling alliance in correct path of development in our country that fact has to be recognized by Gammanpila. Time of changes in world, as well as Sri Lanka, that there are certain political class and politician has uncertainties around their mind and our sky.

    That is natural phenomenon of historical turning of point Democratic revolution led by MR ruling alliances. Is not that only confined Presidential Election that impact has enlarge into our nation path and model of Development of Capitalism by Sustainability of whole social classes.

    Nation and country want Liberation and Independence, while PEOPLE want political democratic Revolution, that vast and deep REFORMS in their system of Democratic Governances.

    NOT that led by US & UK colonial regain led by MS coalition politician of moribund forces that bunch of reactionaries working against PEOPLE’S aspiration of Sri lanka.

    Raja Perera: Thanks for reminding of Loku Athula. Even our “Sahodharayas” are silent. Why? Something went wrong some where; but no one wants to “talk” about it. That is the “MIRACLE OF ASIA”.

    For these “Cross Overs”, the one and the only man to be blamed is no one else other than the ex CJ Sarath Nandalochana de Silva. Where is he today? A few weeks back he was located occupying a “palace” meant for the President’s use. Is he still there in “enforced confinement”?

    Hmmm……..back to square one. Best if Sirisena also defects back to the group, and Rajapakse actually listens to the “non-aligned to China” proposals. However,in the event of “country integrity” issues, ALWAYS back the candidate with the better “country integrity” proposal.

    Not a surprise, knew that this guy is to jump off the ship and wasn’t sure when. It was obvious that this Gembanpila shouldn’t be trusted for the cozy relationship he always maintains with GOTA and it should smell a rat, even after he joined the oppo. I was always waiting to see these guys to do a 180 turn and join MR at a crucial point, and I have reservations about Champika Ranawaka too, given that it was in the online forums that, Sarath Nanada Silva was assigned by MR to develop a new constitution to hijack the oppositions cry for abolishing the EP. It sounded weird when JHU came out championing ex CJ SN Silva’s newly developed changes to the constitution. He must be owing somethings to GOTA for him making the top of the list, and there are speculations about financial irregularities he made on the money he collected from well wishes to fund his 100 Rs campaign. He published his accounts only when he was challenged by Harin, it took a while to balance the numbers. So he must have gotten most of his contributions from ruling brothers(so he feels so obliged to them), some financial irregularities(a file on him), or some dirt on him(a blast from past). He conveniently checked into GOTA’s hospital on the day of JHU breakaway presser. Now that the general public is in the game, no crossover back to MR is going to change the outcome unless, Mathree pulls a 360 turn. Which I highly doubt.

    As a DS oldboy I know Gammanpila is a genuine patriot. He could not be bought over for money.

    However, this time he made a mistake by standing wth MR and WW et al.

    Let me reveal the REAL reason for hs decision. We all DS Senanayakans(school) have our utmost respect to RIT Alles our founder prncipal. Ranil harrassed him in the 80s and as a result we lost our beloved principal and mentor.(he was transfered out.) So all DS puthun have a grudge against Ranil. So naturally Gammanpila too. He will not be on stage with Ranil.

    But unfortunately Gammanpila was approached by RIT Alles son Tiran Alles. Tiran is a broker for MR. He’s a masterbrainwasher and Gammanpila caught between his love for the school/RIT Vs the reformist agenda of the common opposition. Unfortunately Ranil is a leader in the opposition camp. Ironically Ranil and Tiran are Royalists. At the end of the day Gammanpila favoured Tiran despite he never was a DS boy.

    Ideally, given the conflct of interest, Gammanpila could have been neutral and remained in the JHU. If he had so many problems with policy of Sirisena, he could have still waited till his manifesto was out. Gammanpila could have been an effectve person to change course of dirction if Ranl and Chandrika were to play a negatve role in a future Sirisena Govt. BUT to stand tall with MR now after severely critcising him on his governance is simply a twist and will never be forgiven by us DS puthun Gammanpila.

      governs all aspects of our lives and you people are in
      deep drunk of your school day foolish emotions!First and
      foremost,out of your egos!MARA has publicly and in his
      first campaign launch,thundered loud and clear that “if
      you take one from us,we will retaliate by taking one
      from you.” So,it’s not policy or any other rubbish claims.
      Pure trading!Gamman didn’t go!He was traded for Hirunika!
