Gota To Discard Mahinda, Talks On For National Government With Ranil

Only a few hours after the former President Mahinda Rajapaksa anointed his brother and former defence secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa as the SLPP’s presidential candidate his associates are already in talks with “friendly” factions of the UNP about working out a national government deal.

“My brother becomes your brother today,” Mahinda Rajapaksa told the SLPP convention on Sunday as the crowds broke out in thunderous applause.

But Gotabaya Rajapaksa whose presidential hopes have been ably assisted by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and his faithful ministers Sagala Ratnayaka and Tilak Marapana and other powerful sections of the ruling Government is already considering reaching agreement with the UNP for a national government after the next parliamentary polls.

The former Defence Secretary is of the view that once he wins the December presidential election he can move to dissolve parliament as early as February 2020. Talks are on about the possibility of making Wickremesinghe premier under ‘President’ Gotabaya soon after the presidential elections with the pact to continue even after the parliamentary poll. The prospect seems far-fetched for the moment but confidants in both camps say the understanding has been growing between the premier and the former defence secretary who stands accused of a multitude of crimes including the embezzling of state funds to the tune of Rs 11 billion and Rs 33 million in two separate corruption cases currently being heard in the Sri Lankan courts.

Wickremesinghe’s niece Ishini Wickremesinghe and Dilith Jayaweera are the masterminds behind the clandestine negotiations Colombo Telegraph learns.

Ishini Wickremesinghe’s ties to Derana chief Dilith Jayaweera are public knowledge. Ishini Wickremesinghe currently serves on the Prime Minister’s staff. Formerly a member of Mangala Samaraweera’s staff before the Finance and then Media Minister realised she was a Rajapaksa mole, Ishini Wickremesinghe was instrumental in securing Jayaweera’s advertising firm TRIAD the UNP publicity campaign for the February 2018 local government election. The ad campaign cost a whopping Rs 200 million in exchange for the most lacklustre and inane taglines and advertisements “api UNP”. UNP insiders still believe that Jayaweera, whose ad agency is one of the most creative in the country sabotaged the publicity campaign after taking UNP’s money. During the coup, in the presence of several UNPers including Samaraweera and others Ishini Wickremesinghe declared that if the UNP did not nominate Ranil Wickremesinghe as presidential candidate, the Wickremesinghe family would throw its weight behind Gotabaya Rajapaksa. The SLPP Gota team made a similar threat to Mahinda Rajapaksa, vowing to support Wickremesinghe’s candidacy if the former Defence Secretary was not nominated as presidential hopeful for the SLPP.

Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s most fervent hope is that Ranil Wickremesinghe will yet secure the UNP candidacy, making the 2019 election a cake walk for him. He believes he must strengthen Wickremesinghe’s hand and offer him something in return for this eventuality.

At the very least Gotabaya Rajapaksa has assured Wickremesinghe that he will help him to ward off threats to the UNP leadership by “neutralising” sections of the Sajith Premadasa camp once he wins the presidency, highly placed sources told Colombo Telegraph. Ishini Wickremesinghe’s gambit if Sajith Premadasa wrests control of the UNP is to have her uncle tear a section of the party away and support the Pohottuwa MPs in Parliament. In exchange, she has struck a deal with Dilith Jayaweera that Gotabaya will make Wickremesinghe Prime Minister.

If successful, the talks could scuttle Mahinda Rajapaksa’s hopes of securing the Prime Ministership at the next parliamentary election. In an interview with a Tamil newspaper last weekend the former President expressed a strange sentiment just ahead of nominating his brother as presidential candidate.

“Under the 19th Amendment it is the Prime Minister who will have more power. I will be the next prime minister,” Mahinda Rajapaksa told the newspaper. The President would have to work in close collaboration with the premier he added.

Colombo Telegraph earlier reported that Wickremesinghe assisted Gotabaya to win the SLPP nomination by ensuring the Presidential Elections Act was not amended and by refusing to accede to calls from within his party and other coalition allies to revoke Gotabaya’s dual citizenship when he was indicted for stealing money from the state to the tune of Rs 33 million.

Both Mahinda Rajapaksa and Gotabaya Rajapaksa have made remarks openly about how Wickremesinghe and Sagala Ratnanayaka who was once Minister for Law and Order would “sort things out” for them in reference to investigations and cases with just one phone call.

The Sagala Ratnayaka faction of the UNP has been gradually growing closer to the Gotabaya Rajapaksa camp using the “Next Gen” youth wing to build the relationship. Last night after the former Defence Secretary was declared the SLPP nominee, a Ratnayaka acolyte with ties to Rajapaksa’s spokesman Milinda Rajapakshe and others in camp Gota like Eranda Ginige announced on twitter that the candidate was a “smart choice”. The Ratnayaka confidant also sent warm congratulations to the SLPP on its maiden convention.

With Gotabaya Rajapaksa now nominated as SLPP candidate control of the party will quietly slip out of former President Rajapaksa’s hands, senior party members loyal to Mahinda Rajapaksa worry. With the candidacy in the bag, Team Gotabaya led by Dilith Jayaweera and the ex army personnel will move to consolidate power within the party and bend the party machinery to their will the seniors claim. “Mahinda Rajapaksa has unleashed the dogs. It’s possible he will not be able to control them now” a senior UPFA member said. (By TB Bambaradeniya

      Where are you?
      Aren’t you going to jump ship from Mahinda camp to Ranil/Gota camp. If you did jump make sure you take Wimal, Udhaya, Dayan, …. with you.
      By the way you should always remind Gota that Ranil works on the understanding that kee “Keeps his friends close and enemies closer”.

      Now tell us what is going to happen to Namal Baby’s aspirations?

        While everyone is distracted with the Presidential candidates and elections circus, the US colonial and land grabbing project with the support of Bondscam Ranil is taking off with the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), setting up offices in Colombo and moving in various US contractors.
        Also, Lanka’s valuable rare earth minerals in Mannar Island and Pullmodai are being auctioned off to an US partner Australian company called Titanium Sands, with Ravi K demanding more land in Mannar Island.
        Sri Lanka is being flooded by fake Peace Corps ‘volunteers” with diplomatic immunity and tax free status to game the social media and elections.
        Elections are with US puppets Gota and Ranil are part of the Divide, Distract, loot and rule project..

        Dear Native,

        Did you read your mate Navin Nayakka’s offer to give Sampathar and his Vellala Party full Land Rights and Police Powers ?..

        Is Nayakka going to kill both Dr Ranil’s and Keselwatta Kid’s ambition to get the Prez Gig?.
        Nayakka certainly looks like doing it with this game changer ?.
        .
        With the Prez election in full swing with Nandasena already off the Block, both Dr Ranil and Keselwatta Kid have been only promising same old Bull Shit , with a new addition of Gym Kits for Dalits from Dr Ranil.

        And the Kid’s counter offer to build Houses for every one , which even Dr Ranil himself found funny.

        Although Dr Ranil made his New Constitution to create the Thamil Homeland, Dr Ranil was too chicken to mention it in public unlike what Navin has done.

        Will Sampathar now jump from the Fence to Navin Nayakkas Camp?.
        With Dr Ranil and the Kid being still at at loggerheads , will the UNP CC pick him as their Candidate?.

        Sampathar I bet will be throwing his whole weight behind Nayakka.
        Plus Sampathar will borrow the whole weight of Suren Surendran and the GTF to back Nayakka to the hilt.

        And SLMC Hakeem who has been also sitting on the fence since Easter will be compelled to back Nayakka as well

        Although Hakeem Clan do not live in the East. Hakeem can not let Bathudeen , Assath Sally and Hesbolla to have the Muslim Homeland in the East for themselves specially with the new Kathankaddy becoming the Mecca of Srilanka.
        And a Muslim Police and a Sharia Law to guard them with all rights to the Lands
        and even Pasikuda.

        This is a Master stroke Native .

        With the combined total Muslim and Tamil votes added to the UNP votes of both Dr Ranil and Keselwatta Kid’s Factions Nayakka will shit it in..
        Poor Nandasena Don’t you think Native ?..

      CT EDS, OK but the deal between US puppet Bondscam Ranil and US citizen Gota was brokered long ago, and higher up –by US ambassadors, long before Ishini and Dilith were on the scene.
      This US brokered Ranil-Rajapassa UNP-SLFP.PP relationship to turn the Parliament into a Cesspit of corruption and Lanka into a US military base happened long ago..
      Finally, the press is waking up to the Fake Reconciliation racket funded by US-EU to loot Lanka with a Yahapalanaya label!

        There maybe some truth to this. According to former Indian diplomat (writing in the Indian Punchline) M.K Bhadrakumar, the acting US Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia visited Gothabaya just before the announcement and the Trump administration has fast tracked his application to revoke his US citizenship. The visit is more than a co-incidence.

        The fact that Bondscam Ranil is delaying announcing the winning Presidential candidate for the UNP shows the extent of his greed for power and fear of Sajith’s victory.

        US puppet Ranil will even divide the UNP in his greed for power in the fallen hope that his US paymasters will somehow deliver victory for him, even if the US Special Operations forces (SOF) for which SOFA is designed have to organize assassination of Sajith, just like they did the Easter attacks to force signing of MCC and SOFA colonization projects. Sri Lanka does not need the paltry 480 mil. USD and MCC should get out with clown Nilan Fernando – another SL diaspora CIA operative and MCC hired hand, like A Mahendran, and Chitta Ranjan Hulugalle of PTL and CBSL Bondscam ilk..

        I agree. DISINFORMATION AT ITS BEST. Gota will never abandon Mahinda. This is just to cause friction between the two brothers. This game of trying to cuase disunity among the Rajapakses was not succesful so far. They pttiched Gota against Basil MR against gota now. ,but the Rajapakse siblings are rock solid and their relationship cannot be eroded by these articles.

      Thanks for the article.

      “Mahinda Rajapaksa has unleashed the dogs” and Traitors.

      So, it is all about Ranil W and Gotabaya R. Ranil wants Premadasa out. Do not want Sarath Fonseka either.

      Ranil will form a “New” National Govt. Change horses from Sirisena to Gotabaya.

      Gotabaya will fire Ranil, the same way, Sirisena did with a twist.

      What do we have? A Govigama conspiracy?

      Can Ranil be classified as a Traitor, Sevalaya, Pachaya and Mala-Perethaya, just like Sirisena?

      George,
      It is possible that all of details in the news is not 100% accurate but the likely hood of dissolving the parliament in Feb is real if GoRa wins. Since it is very likely that no major party could win a clear majority, the idea of forming another national Gvt could be real.

      However, despite his willingness to put country first above politics & his firm commitment to the motto that politics must be confined only to elections after building the the nation in between, if the story has even a slightest of reality, then Ranil has to be a real fool to think of a national Gvt with SLPP group which is much worse than SLFP group that gave him so much trouble. Why would Ranil think about working in Gvt sitting side by side with GoRa who has a well known criminal history? Why Ranil wants to help white wash GoRa ‘s criminal record? It is much respectful to sit in the opposition & let the gang of criminals ruin the country if that is what the voters want!

        D.P.

        “Why would Ranil think about working in Gvt sitting side by side with GoRa who has a well known criminal history? “

        T.hat will be his insurance cover against the Bond Scam. RW has obviously helped GR so far in ensuring that GR is not prosecuted for his Crimes. RW probably thinks that is Not enough to keep him safe. So, joining GR in a National Govt. would mean Double Insurance cover against Bond Scam, for sure.

            As the saying goes, “there are no permanent friends and enemies in Politics”.

            May be, for now the Bond Scam is a “dead case against Ranil.”. And may be Gota owes a lot to RW. But, there is no guarantee that Gota will not use the Bond Scam against RW if the need arises for him. And Gota knows very well how to resurrect the dead. And RW knows that too. So, by teaming up with Gota, RW, is playing it safe.

            That is what I mean by Double Insurance cover.

              Muhandiram,
              Here is my take on the possibility of Ranil agreeing to form National Gvt with GoRa if he wins: It simply not going to happen b’cos there will be very strong dissent from UNP against such a move. Ranil will not go against his own party b’cos, he knows perfectly well that such a move will end his political career.

              What we can expect if GoRa wins is MaRa’s usual game of buying mp s to form a majority Gvt. It all will depend on the composition of the new parliament. If SLFP becomes the deciding factor to form a majority without other minority parties, MaRa certainly buy all of them except perhaps Duminda Dissanayake. On the other hand, if UNP will be in a position to form majority Gvt with the consent – but not as a Gvt partner – of TNA, they will do it.

              Also, a Feb election will depend on the result of the Prez election. It is possible that GoRa will not gamble on early parliamentary election if the majority is slim unless the minority party showing is is weaker. But, since GoRa’s candidacy might cause strong showing among minorities and thereby dragging his majority also with it, Feb election may not be very appealing for him.

              On the other hand, if Sajith wins big (GoaRa’s criminal past will help Sajith to penetrate into SLPP votes), UNP may decide to take advantage of the flow. Again, there is a lot of time between now and the nomination date where so many things can happen in between. For example if Kumara Welgama try to keep his promise to contest against GoRa, the complexity of the picture will change considerably. I know that he has a strong voter base in & around Kalutara district.

    Gota has ONLY one aim – to be out of the clutches of the Law Courts. His Blackcoat
    gang arranges the continual postponements toward this end. Basil & other Rajapakses will be protected forever under the so-called US siding “National Govt.”.

    The success or failure of this proposed “Govt” depends on the patriotism of the current politicians giving way to the arrangement – which in turn will be of promises to the hilt, as never before!

    MR would have been briefed ahead of the arrangements and he had to agree to save
    the Family for the future – therefore no astrological thinking was involved this
    time? MY3 has been buried 12 ft. under this time!

    Old Brother Prince’s Citizenship status has been under question. Further CT questioned about the way he obtained passport. Now it is said there is a legal case on that. American diplomats met Old King few hours before Old Brother Prince was declared as Slap Party Candidate. Does this is telling 1). America doesn’t like this candidate. 2).His citizenship status is not changed by America, yet.
    In reality, in Lankawe history, Kasiyappa or no other ruler might have had as many accusations as Old Brother Prince have. Even Hitler may not have had so many accusations before he had risen to the power. The future in going to like with Sadam, Gadhafi, Castro….. (That will be the case with Vaalaiththodam Jr too, but only differences no 4 brothers to share in the murders and looting). It is not just Appe Yahapalanaya Aanduwa, but even many foreign governments, including UNHRC & UN protected him until he rose to this level.
    White Van, War crime and Murders, Other Frauds, and there are many things mouthfuls for UNP members to talk about Old Brother Prince. But Ranil is already on Unity game, supporting opponents. To defeats the IC & on solution to Tamils and makes the Resolution 30/1 go failed, UNP will, with full might, protect Old Brother Prince by staying out of accusing on any crimes. It was Ranil, who protected EP from being dismantled by new constitution.
What the Tamils will be doing in this election is another question. We did our best pounding TNA to stay out of 2015 election and do anything it wanted only with the winning party. TNA promised Diwali and Pongal presents for Tamils every year the Yahapalanaya in the power, but nothing moved, instead heavy North East Sinhala-Muslim colonization successfully implemented. This colonization too will destroy TNA’s victory in the coming election.

    Wow, power brokers at play. Add Kili Maharaja to the story & there is enough materiel to make a movie. In the (possibly) inevitable scenario that Gota becomes President, wonder if its Ranil or Mahinda who will be taken for the ride. Either way, adds intrigue to the plot & I wish I was a writer. This would make a best seller & I would have the movie rights.

    Seriously, do we want an alleged criminal fraudster implicated in murders & large scale corruption with pending civil cases abroad, an army officer who got him self discharged from his duty in the middle of a war to seek greener pastures abroad, pledging allegiance to his new adopted land, now returning to his land of birth to do his ‘patriotic duty’ as the new President? Can the lame duck PM, Ranil, who could not stand up to a stupid spineless Sirisena, keep a devious thug under control, even with all the powers of the 13th Amendment? Or, would it be the shameless brother who would be pulling all the strings behind the scenes? After all, it is said that blood is thicker than water. Either way, we have no choice. It’s very much a one horse race. Premadasa jnr would be no different, bringing in another Premadsa era of cronyism & nepotism or do we let the current uneducated yob carry on for another term?

    that is bloody good.we can throw out this col 7 part of the UNP out of the UNP as it is the main cause of the UNP’s shrinking vote base from 40% to the current 25% and will lead to 20% one day.

    One should not wonder in fantasy without evidence. What evidence do we have that Gota will marginalize MR? If there is a move to form a national government assuming that Gota will win the Presidential election isn’t that too far-fetched? Of course! This is a world of double games and unholy alliances. Every one may throw sticks of carrot and hope to lure the other. But to say that GR will ditch MR is beyond reality. It could well be that if there are contacts between GR and RW with the full knowledge of MR.

    The whistle to the real game is in the hand of New King.

    He can fire all the 65 Slap Party MPs and reappoint with 65 SLFP new MPs. Bring a New Unity government. Bring an amendment to the constitution to make 6 years for EP. Bring a referendum for parliament election, instead of real election. All SLFP and UNP MPs will be happy. After one year make another deal with Ranil to extend his term. Bring the New way of election for all 9 provinces. So Slap Party cannot control them even if they win them. That is how he can be president for 12 years. Ranil need not to fear about Vaalaiththodam Jr. This is much better methods than October Coup to regain the control.

      It appears that Bamba/CT’s imagination is running riot, to put it mildly. Unwilling to accept that CT would consciously engage in such machinations or deliberately disseminate blatant falsehoods, I am forced to believe that Bamba is taking CT for a ride and undermining the forces that are already anxious to prevent his coming to power, given such a bleak array of alternatives.
