Gota And Maithri Plot Game Plan: Gotabaya Meets Sirisena’s Confidantes In China

Gotabaya Rajapaksa has met with a team of top advisors to President Maithripala Sirisena in China, Colombo Telegraph reliably learns.

Gotabaya Rajapaksa

China had invited a five-person team and had also invited Rajapaksa separately but had arranged a meeting of both parties.

Colombo Telegraph reliably learns that parliamentarians Rev Athureliye Rathana Thero and S.B. Dissanayake as well as Sirisena’s confidantes Shiral Lakthillake, Harsha Kumara Navaratne and Dr Lalith P Samarakoon (Secretary General of the National Economic Council headed by Sirisena) had been invited, but that the team had left for China on March 28 sans Rev Rathana Thero and S.B. Dissanayake.

What the parties discussed is yet unknown but speculation is rife in politics circles that the no confidence motion, possible outcomes and understanding between the SLFP and the Joint Opposition may have been discussed.

The group is scheduled to return to Colombo tomorrow (4th) whereas Rajapaksa is on a longer visit and will be out of the country for several more weeks.

Meanwhile another group of parliamentarians had also visited China on a ‘development exposure tour’ but the UNP MPs of the contingent had been hurriedly summoned back by party leader Ranil Wickremesinghe.

Lakthilaka is said to be among President Sirisena’s closest confidantes to the point that he was one of the emissaries sent by Sirisena to arrange a meeting with Gotabaya Rajapaksa as mentioned in MP Malith Jayatilleka’s book (The January 8th that I saw) in April 2015.

    History repeats ,it should never ,but the people always makes sure it repeat .

    I forese a possible repeat of what happened during CBK and RW time ,the difference was ,RW bowed his head and left , CBK was humiliated , pushed post to pillar ,but she never gave up , she accepted her mistakes and did what she had to do.

    Sri Lanka and us Lankans will soon know our fate .

    Hush ,Hush and will we all fall down?

      Battle lines are now clear to everyone. Sirisena is neck deep in a cesspit of bile. With the enemy. No doubt Sirisena should and will face the WRATH of the people., who have been taken for a ride. ONCE AGAIN!
      PS:
      Sobitha Thero’s dreams now lay shattered for all to see, by the roadside. Well done Sirisena & RW. WELL DONE SLFPEE (SLPEEPEE) & UNP.EE! This country is cursed by you. Since 1948.

      Hey folks,

      what we want to do next is to build up an open slaughter house for broadday killings on public . Everything else in that line have been made by Rajapakshe famliy by giving the pride to us Sinhalaya

      NO BODY WOULD QUESTOIN ABOUT THE RUBBY PLAYERS FAMILY – their mother would feel by today – not having served them with the JUSTICE they waited for.

      The hang man and excutionist will be GOTABAYA .. and his men.

      Rajapakshe was popular to the world no second to slain Gadfi in Lybia.
      He even went to him and put his arm around Gadafi shoulder to show the world, MR is no better than Gadafi.
      There the ballige putha never thought twice, that his gesture betrayed entire nation.
      But the bugger did as his brother diverted the flights carried some canadian leaders.
      They interpreted them as bold actions by spined men.. ha hah…
      Never thought but behaved themselves like bulls in porcelan house.
      No matter anything would ahve bee destryoed but they enjoyed the eday but taking state funds adn properties away for their future benefits.
      OVER 4000 Billions have been grabed that way, these were nothing for tsunami embezzler who took dollar millions shamelessly.
      However, People like him even today,
      Even if they have been raped by Rajapakshes.
      That is the ground reality of this nation and country

      Why can’t President Maithripala Sirisena put this same effort to ask for the Rajapaksas Criminal Network to be prosecuted and punished!?

      Looks like the “Game of Shape” (Cover up) Network is starting to get exposed!?

      If the president can move fast on the no confidence motion against the Prime Minister why was he sitting on all the cases against the Rajapaksas Criminal Network Cases!?

    Everybody who is not a old Royalist must ask themselves why they should support a man who thinks they are inferior to a Royalist ! Look at RW , does he look superior ? manly, honest, clever, open minded, good leadership ? ?Even a Royalist must ask why he should support a man who has such a perverted idea of the world !

    The NCM on the 4 th is against RW. No point talking about MR, Basil, history etc.

    Is our Prime Minister Honourable ?

    Is our PM a honest man ?

    Does he operate with a small clique of Colombo businessmen or is he open to all segments of the country ?

    In 40 years of politics what has he given the country ? What has he given the UNP ?

    He has only taken from the country and the UNP. How many foreign trips has he made in these 40 years. How many stays at 7 star hotels ? How many countries has he visited ? And what have the people gained from this massive investment on an ungrateful rascal like this ?

      I would never do so to Rajapakshe rascals. I thought Mr Sirisena wouldNOT become a caricature, but he had to WITH his lower profile.

      Sirisena may want to protect his family, but we want to protect entire nation, .. nation that have been abused as human shield to date.
      People have have been manipulated by telling something sinibola to the youth.
      People ahve been brainwashed by telling them that tmail rise or muslim rise will be ahead of us.

    President Sirisena first betrayed MaRa.
    Now he has betrayed Premier RW.,and joined forces with those whom he betrayed on Jan:08th 2015!
    Sirisena is rewriting The Prince by Machiavelli!
    But, he has not taken into account the scenario of MaRa and RW combining forces.
    Then it would be a case of Aiyo Srisena!

    Ranil may be a lot of things, but let me mention a few things he is not:

    Ranil is not a brutal dictator.
    Ranil is not vengeful.
    Ranil is not stupidly conservative.
    Ranil is not amassing wealth for himself or his family.
    Ranil does not involve his family into his politics.
    Ranil does not stop the freedom of press or freedom of expression.
    Ranil is not an oppressor.
    Ranil does not take political milage out being a Buddhist.
    Ranil is not a religious extremist.
    Ranil is not a racial bigot.
    Ranil is not a mafia Don.
    Ranil is not a drug dealer.
    Ranil is not a steam roller.
    Ranil is not a conniving schemer.
    Ranil is not a God but a good human being.
    Ranil is not a drama Queen or an actor.
    Ranil does not play to the gallery.
    Ranil is not a cheap skate.
    Ranil is not a trickster.
    Ranil does not manipulate or play with the intelligence citizens.

    As a person I think Ranil is by and large a far more decent human being compared to most others in the corridors of power.
    He has his flaws just as we have ours.

      Lasith, i agree with you more.

      All what you added above are SEEN positive in Rajapakshes. So yakage haetiya wimane.. meaning people love him more. Can you imagine ?
      The decent personalities have no whatsoever place in the wimane created by RAJAPKAHE horu.

      They painted their images contrast asif they have been the ones who fought the war.
      Those who sacrificed entire life for war, like ones SF and other silent good humble army men, are not given credit can you image ?

      This is srilanka where Extremism and Budhism are gummed together with a thinner layer as no other countries on this earth.

      ” Ranil promised a Volkswagen factory”
      ” Ranil said the Harbour City will destroy the southwest coastline”
      “Ranil is a Bond Scam thief”
      “He is the biggest loser in SL political history”

      Ranil is the biggest rascist ever.. he evangelized the UNP during his tenor… to such extent that a future UNP government will not have a single buddhist to take up even the ministry of buddhist affairs. No wonder UNP lost the favor of the Buddhist priest and the majority sinhalese. A national party should be secular … what ranil did was to chase away the buddhist and evengelize the party.

    During last Local Govt. Election time Gota was in USA. Isuru (Wasuru) Devapriya said Gomarala has instructed Gota to go immediately from the Country as his family members are planning Gota’s arrest. So Gomarala protected Gota at that time. Even when the CID or Police wanted to question Gota about his involvement in murder cases and misappropriation of public funds he immediately rush to the Courts get the preventing of arrest order and the inquiry dated will be dragging like rubber. This is not happening under ordinary circumstances. Without Executive’s knowledge and the help from Judiciary this can’t happen. IP Rangajeewa and Prison Commissioner Emil Ranjan arrested and in remand custody in connection with Walikada massacre. Former DIG Nanayakkara and former OIC Mt.Lavinia also in remand custody in connection with Lasantha Wickramasinghe murder. Now Udayanga Weerathunga is in the custody of Dubai authorities. In case our law enforcement authorities secured Udayanga’s extradition that will be end of Ranaviru Gota. His real picture will come out. He also knows with the proposed high courts he can’t play like now he is playing and plotting with SC Judges like “Gedara Yana Gaman” So this Godfather knows that he will have get ready to wear the Jumper in near future as he is the master mind in crimes that took place during previous regime

      They proved it few weeks ago having voted for Pohottwua.

      Paradoxial right ?
      They are born memory loosersas no other country men would have been.
      YAKAGE HATIYATA WIMANE… was what I read somewhere, .. that is the thing in current day politics in this god punished nation.
      Sirisena is politically matured but not the best leader to take bold decisions.
      RW handled external affairs to all good ends and saved the country not allowing Rajapkehe be beheaded in international gallow.
      But the credit there was grabed by President sirisena.
      In the same time, UNP composition of the current govt did lot more being part of the govt.. while SLFP men close to President ruined it by today.
      Sirisena s stupidity boomeranged the set goals by today.
      He should be clear that Rajapakshes should be punished and driven away..

      China intends to secure a firm hold over Sri Lanka due to its geopolitical importance in the Indian Ocean.The former Rajapaksha regime paved the way for this by getting China involved in billion dollar infrastructure projects and getting Sri Lanka heavily indebted to China. The Chinese would have rewarded the Rajapakses handsomely for this opportunity. Chinese find it easy to move in to a country when it is headed by a corrupt regime since money talks with such leaders! If you look at the countries in Africa such Ghana, Angola, Congo, Zambia…etc., Chinese are building roads, railway lines and Chinese banks are funding the projects with these African countries getting heavily indebted to China. Don’t you see the similarity with Sri Lanka?

      All such African countries with heavy Chinese investments are headed by corrupt regimes with leaders who can be bought with millions of dollars. China wants Ranil and “yahapalanaya’ out. They want a corrupt ruler. Rajapakshas will come back with Chinese assistance and make us a colony of China in the not too distant future, unless something unexpected happens to save Sri Lanka. I am sure India and USA are watching and are concerned. The NCM against the PM is a local issue with international dimensions.

    The plot thickens ? Or are we chasing mirages here. The mandate given to RW has self destructed, so even if he escapes by his foreskin tomorrow, he will be a deeply wounded man incapable of leading a team which shows no respect for him. We have had the pundits saying that he can’t be sacked according to 19 A . Well he can keep his title but his powers can and will be emasculated. Yeah or nay RW will bea political cripple and absolute liability and deadweight for the govt. Of what use is such a man? More interestingly, why the hell wont he pack up and go without clinging on. Has he not got the message? If he has not, proof of his inanity does not require any further supporting evidence. Well of course the other very relevant factor is his lack of self respect, which is something a leader should not possess. What a mess the Sirisena Ranil Govt has created.The country is at a standstill for the past 3 months. Statements made by Ministers are contradicted by other ministers. Ministers make policy pronouncements without cabinet sanction.It is anarchy and if this mob survives politically it is like being driven into the abyss by a blindfolded driver. Don’t cry for me Sri Lanka!

    Maithripala has proved that he is the most untrustworthy, backstabbing and ungrateful President Sri Lanka has ever seen. Does he think India, USA and EU will allow SL to run behind China? If the NCM is passed then that would be the end of Sri Lanka as EU will find reasons to stop GSP plus, similarly USA will do the same. Other European countries will also block investment into SL. India on the other hand will squeeze SL at the UN with the support of USA and other EU countries. We will have economic embargo from most of the EU countries and USA based on issues prevailing at UN. Unfortunately UN will not be able to take any major action as China will block it, but each member country will come up with their own. We are going to see another communal riot very soon. End of SL is near in case the NCM passes. Maithripla who came to power with TNA, SLMC and other upcountry party votes today does not want them to vote against the NCM. What a ungrateful person he is. Its time all these minority parties show him that the majority has to respect minority parties as they are also citizens of the country. History will read that Maithripala is the worst political Traitor Sri Lanka has ever seen.

      “What Incant understand that why JO is demanding RWs resignation before the actual voting.”

      Because they are not sure whether they have the vote.

      “What’s the point of this NCM??”
      Remember all this started with Ranil suggesting SF become the Law and Order Minister. The thought of this happening gave nightmares to the Rajapaksa’s and their cronies who practically took the country to the cleaners during the last govt.
      So the point or objective of the NCM is to put a puppet in the PM chair or force an early election to save the Rajapaksa’s.
