Gota’s ‘Known-Unknowns’

By Kumar David

Prof. Kumar David

Never in my recollection has a PM or President evoked such diverse expectations. Some say Gotabaya Rajapaksa is motivated and has achievements to show, albeit at the microlevel of enforcing discipline and stimulating errant staff in government departments to pull up their socks. Others say he is taking a series of steps that undermine civil liberties and democratic rights and manipulating the prosecution of military and police personnel and Paksa family types who have brazenly violated the law. A third contingent, at this moment this columnist alone, holds that he is a pragmatic-opportunist which means that he has no particular ideology, perspective or ‘line’ that regulates his decision making. He will at each step do whatever seems most useful to meet challenges facing him politically and personally. This marks him off from two disreputable siblings; one rides on Sinhala-Buddhist populism, the other, better known as Mr Ten-Percent, has lived up to his moniker. I have said, and I continue to say that there is no direct evidence that Gota is financially corrupt or that he is a racist. He is of course morally accountable for state war-crimes during his tenure as defence supremo but that does not make him a racist any more than countless Generals, Brigadiers, Colonels and soldiers who are just as morally guilty. I refer here, since it is relevant, only to state war-crimes not the war-crimes of the LTTE. 

This uncertainty about what direction Gota may go colours every political conversation. No intelligent person, I don’t waste time with the unintelligent or respond to the invective of dumb commentators, is prepared to slap his hand down on the table and declare “Gota is without doubt going to deliver the goods even if somewhat short of economic and social nirvana”. Conversely, no sensible person can be certain that the Gota regime will surely turn into naked dictatorship. Simple my dear Watson, the answer to all this is still blowing in the wind, it belongs to the realm of known-unknowns. That does not mean that we should not read the tea leaves or count the pressures pulling this way and that at any time. So here goes.

There is acclamation of micro-level (I do not intend to be disparaging) initiatives that the President has taken. I do not have department by department and an institution by institution balance sheets but some interventions must have had beneficial effects. His determination to cut out pomp and fanfare, talk to the point, trim pecuniary fat that Ministers gorge on, and his simple dress code are laudable. But more important they send out a message that his Ministers will find hard to swallow: “Cut out bull-shit and self-aggrandisement, stop stealing, or back your bags I will kick you out after the elections”.  Still I am a pessimist on this score since these rogues are powerful inheritances from the Mahinda Era and Gota will find it hard to push out all the loka horu from the Cabinet after April 25. I already hear sounds of vedak naha when I inquire at the handiya or from three-wheeler chaps. But will it affect next month’s voting? Unlikely.

The down-side of Gota’s regime is more worrying in the long-term. I am not allowed an unlimited word-count to enumerate the numerous interferences with the CID and placing it under military surveillance, meddling with court processes, shielding military and family miscreants from prosecution and alarming extensions of the military into civilian life. CT has highlighted instances. Such actions which if undefeated point to authoritarianism if not military rule. The best I can do is quote Human Rights Watch which is less timid than Colombo based reporters and editors; “(T)he government is rapidly putting civilian state agencies under military control and intelligence agencies are increasing their surveillance and intimidation of victims’ families, human rights activists and journalists”. If the GR-MR SLPP wins the elections as seems likely, this assessment which I believe is correct, augers a dark future for Lanka. The GR presidency is a potential dictatorship.

The best that the electorate can do now, having unwisely thrown its Sinhala-Buddhist hulk behind Gota in a tidal wave last November, is to undertake a sensible course correction. That is ensure that the MR-GR-SLPP is denied a two-thirds majority to fix and frame a constitutional hangman’s noose. Though the crowning idiots in UNP/SJB leadership will make chutney on the right, their combined parliamentary representation may not decline much thanks to crafty JR’s proportional representation system. On the Left it remains to be seen if the JVP led NPP alliance shows tactical wisdom. The Tamils will be ignored, as usual, by all, and the Muslims exploited again like shuttlecocks.

    Kumar,
    Sri Lankans know all that should be known about President G Rajapaksa.
    Don’t under estimate the Sri Lankan voter.

      David Kumar,

      What choice do the Sri Lankan’s have after the performance of the Ranil W and Maitripaka S duo? The duo still do not want to go away.

      So, they choose the tribe, the corrupt tribe.Gotabaya knows that and the imbeciles know that.

        The most important Gota’s known-unknown is that he is still an American citizen, because USA government has not yet accepted his request to renounce USA citizenship. Therefore he has made a fraudulent declaration that he is not a dual citizen in order to contest the SL presidency. USA is holding onto this information to force him to sign the MCC agreement in full which gives USA forces to use Sri Lanka facilities. If he fails or delays signing it, then truth will be revealed and he has to be expelled. Mahinda is waiting for this to happen, so that he could creep into the post with support form his sycophantic lackeys in parliament.

          USA has positioned it’s self well to expand their geo political agenda.
          Gota, Ranil or Tamil Elam does not matter they will achive their goal what ever the scenario.

          The disunity in South Asia and the petty mindedness among the genaral population is making it easy for US to further it’s agenda.

          Our people are masters in deceit; they did that to Velu and ditched him in Nandikadal at the end. They did the same thing collectively to UN/UNHCR (headed by a Portuguese) and seems to have come out unscathed. They must be trying to do same to Uncle Sam also. Something similar to take him on a detour like “Paragiya Kotte Giya”.

            They used samething trick and guide Sinhala Modayas voters to install Malay family. Today , Sri lanka ruled by Tamil-Malay-CHinese mixture. And today Sri lanka run by Portuguese again. There are Sinhalese spies have been working in Lankaweb to promotes Malay-Chinese-Tamil family to rule Sri lanka.

            Now Sinhala Modayas cannot talk about Sinhalese history ! why? because Sinhalese Modayas rule by Malays\Chinese\Tamil brought by Portuguese
            Aren’t you one of those Sinhalese or Tamil spy?.

          Kumar: Militarization is a part of the US DNA. Trumpland owns and operated more than 50 percent of the global arms industry and has 800 military bases all over the world. Check the Stockholm Peace Research Institutes data on militarization of the world. Now with the US citizen Lanka will be militarized – also to fight CIA owned ISIL fake terrorism!

          Trump’s navy is developing an AI unmanned submarines called CLAW to cut the Undersea Data Cables (UDC) in the Indian Ocean and bring down the internet for its wars.

          Sri Lanka is a global hub of UDCs – check the UDC map and like Corona Virus bio-weapon to stall the rise of China and Asia they will use submarines to down the internet.
          UDCs is the reason that USA is desperate to get its citizens to control Lanka and militarize the Indian Ocean

    I do feel that the way SL is going it does not look good for the minorities in the country.
    Sections of the minorities are being manipulated by the STATE to work against their own people.
    It’s a very sad state of affairs for the > 65 year olds who have gone through Sinhala only ; 1977 & 1983 riots and the LTTE for next 26 years

    Whether the electorate denies MR-GR-SLPP a two-thirds majority or not, Gota will do what he wants to do. The minorities are shelved and have no word in running the government. They are no body. Just look where he has decided to house the suspected CORA virus infected returnees from Italy,Iran and South Korea right in the middle of the minorities, Punani and Kandakaduin the eastern province. They have to be bused all the way from Katunayake to these centres why can’t they be housed inthe South, closer to the airport??? This is Gota’s regime for you. I am surprised he didn’t house them in Jaffna University.

    To me, he knows nothing in terms of lanken politics.

    There is a sinhala saying in vernacular – so long a man keeps his mouth shut, others would think, that he is intelligent. And again a myth is being spread that GOTLER intends to make tangible changes, but Mahinda et al stand on his way. All these are just myths – similar to that of FAKE Prof. Pundit from Kelaniya Viharaya who loudly added that RELICs saga came up in Nov 2019 was a truth. Unfortunately, local university dons that are in long slumber, have not had the guts to come forward and question it yet today, even if 3 months passed since the public lie was spread across the country.

    One can stay consider a down-syndrome patient be pragamatic if he would not open his mouth occassionally. That is unfortunately the case with the incumbent president in srilanka today.But those who know it notice exactly, the crisis created by the stupid govt today. Gotabaya does not say anything today even if serious issues would come up, since his sibling brother-incumbent primier, does not allow him to open his orifices.

    After promoting the 3% Party Boss as the best President for Lankawe whom even his Punchi Amma has rejected as a loser. Dr Kumar is now calling the commentators here , dumb asses.

    How Dumb is that that for a start?.

    After the revelations of UNP Stalwart Ranajan , Presidential Bond Commision , UNP’s own Suicide Parliamentary Commission, and even the His Highness the Colombo Cardinal our inhabitants will totally agree that even Prez Nanaseana’s Butler can do a better job than Dr Rani and his close mates Ravi, Mangala, Mallik , Kabir , Mujubur , anBathdeen and Rauf Hakeem.

    Never mind .

    Wonder whether Dr Kumar is still with the 3% Party at the coming Election?…

    Kumar on militarization: After the Easter Sunday Carnage last year when Zaharan and boys was inspired by CIA’s ISIS and Rand Corporation’s “Mullahs on the Mainframe”, Gota is not taking any risks.
    This is why the SL military is out on the streets and the roads. The US war Corps or Fake Peace Corps have penetrated every nook and cranny of Lanka, including the Rajapaksa citizen family and will do whatever it takes to get MCC and SOFA signed and turn Lanka into an unsinkable aircraft carrier for the US war machine in the Indian Ocean to fight CIA-ISIS-Rand Corp Terrorism.
    It is the US economy that lives on and thrives on militarization and the military business intelligence entertainment industrial complex.

    The future of SL will depend not so much on Gota, but whether people will elect highly intelligent, fiercely independent, exceptionally honest and capable new blood into the parliament to defy any dictatorial tendencies on the part of the president and legislate laws for the benefit of the country. It is up to the people to decide on their future destiny. If they vote with the intelligence of water buffaloes (sorry, no offence meant to the innocent buffaloes) to elect the same old corrupt and incompetent buffoons who are only good at throwing chilli powder and chairs across the floor of the parliament, then why worry about the future outcomes. Just join the mob and rob as the leaders do!

      before voting, how much are they intelligent? ask them a few questions about Rajapaksa family. Not 1% of them knows about Rajapakses’ family background.
      Sinhalese general knowledge about Sri lanka, just last 150 years is zero!
      Ask them to name foreign groups brought to SRi lanka by Portuguese, Dutch and British. Answer will be zero. Only people who can answer to this question is Sinhalese Christian, many whom of are related foreigners bought to Sri lanka by colonies

    Danger is high before the nation. But they have not achieved anything. People should question now as to why the previous govt failed to do so many things that MAHINDA et al thought was easy. Today, not even prices of daily needs stay under control. Nor do they care about anything. Hospitals are reported to have no essential medicine. But Rajitha Senaratne as a minister of health did a great service. I am not part sympathiser but an observer. Culprits filled in Rajapakshe fraction never allowed the previous govt to do their job properly. But they did so much, media mafia never let that be passed to the nation. Why ? Basil Rajaakshe led groups were behind MEDIA mafia.
    In a country, even if you would do various good things, but that can be painted as nothing, if MEDIA would not work fair. That is what the good governance govt faced in.
    Today, even if a child would have been raped, they dont care, since the criminals that committed the crimes are Rajakashes supporters.
    :
    Few weeks before Last easter, there had been a case in GALLE – a rapist, kattadiya, but DIE HARD supporter of RAJAPAKSHES CLAN – a ps leader, raped a child of an innocient family whose father was then a navy or army soldier. Father became helpless, since they have a mentally retarded child born to that family. As is the case with many, people down there in SL, believe in myths more than any other therapeutic methods seen fine in western world. So, this father taking her eldest daughter who is just 16 and going to school for her ol exams, went to the witch hunter ´/Rajakashe supporter, by name Pushpakumara aka RATHTHARAN, s house for a witch treatment, that the family believed would help for their handi capped child.

      Lankan,
      Because there are no clever politicians, Sinhalayo decided to elect a ‘CLEVER LEADER’ who is not a politician. Sinhalayo are not imbeciles as Amarasiri says. Imbeciles are those who voted for the dumb politician.

      Education is not measured by degrees, but the manner they have been brought up.
      .
      Rascals dominated srilankens would prefer rascals to be their leaders. That is so simple to understand.
      .
      I am anti corrupted person, who got my education in Europe. Education in the sense my University Education. But whenever I travel back home, I get hurt by every tiny things that I consider as not at all fair. See the traffic police or the like do their job in our home country, they are trained to bend their head before the rich or ones drive luxury lemosine while they simply dont care about the predestians. Civilized Europe is the opposite. No matter even if the vehicles would pass by, walkers just wait at the traffic lights regardless of it being in a highly urban or rural corners.
      :
      And the leaders be it even Bulgaria or other parts of the europe, they are more disiplined than that of our leader elected by People. Rajapakshes would utter loads of lies to the very same stupid gatherings, that would not even know that KELANIYA temple RELIC saga was a man made myth to fool the stupid mindset.

      Media mafia would do anything to shape up Rajaakshes than anyone today. So, what more talks about DRUG mafia that is also being handled by Rajaakshes and their henchmen ?

    Dr Harsha de Silva, I consider him to be an honest person and a MP who did good work regarding the intro of INDIAN EMERGENCY services so that the poor of the nation could benefit of that. This and se se veral other good word achieved by him during the last 5 years, makes very clear, that President does not seem to know the priorities of the day.
    President s penis is tied to that of SLPP thieves. Unlike he promised, he has failed to do the least thing for the benefit of the masses today. Not even price of daily needs are under control but, one good thing, the man, does not abuse his mouth the way, bp Sirisena did, from day to another. So long a man keeps queit, we would remain consider him to be talented. But if he really wants to do something against the injustices, he could do it.

    Let alone Gotler could leave the CRIME investigations carried out by FORMER govt continue, then people would have grown their hopes in him. I think Gotler is equally a cheater, as we noticed it today.

          Just imagine what would the Ranjana’s Girls in Colombo 3. 5 and 7 would have called Sira, even before he sacked Dr Rani?..

          I thought those two whom you have mentioned are top notch Vellalas who wear Western Attire underneath .

    Sirisena, during his Presidency from 2015 to 2019, created a website ” tell president.lk “, accepted grievances of public, referred to the relevent Agencies and tried tofound solutions. The functions of this arrangement had ceased since the new President took over. Even appeals sent to the new President by e-mail or post are not acknowledged or action taken or replied. Can the Public expect relief for their grievances, especially after elections?

    One of the most famous sayings attributed to Abraham Lincoln is about deception: You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time”. Mr. Mahinmda and Co have to invent new communal formula to win the elections. If he loses the elections that will be the end of Mahinda dynasty

    If Gota is not a Racist, why didn’t he allow Tamil National Anthem at the Independence Celebration? He could have just made a statement that would have solved this issue. I wonder what Kumar is expecting as “Santhosam” from Gota!

    Kumar David is promoting political alliances that fulfill his personal Wishes which are unique to minorities with special Interests. On the other hand, it is public news that Yahapalanya cabinet ministers, minority politicians and National list MPs have informed that want to cross to the govt side. So, once get elected hoping for minister positions and other benefits if they cross the sides, what will Kumar David say ?

    As a Grand Father, I wonder how Gota as a Grand Father will want his Grand Child to remember him! Gota’s Grand Child will be an American. To date what we see in the International Media is that Gota is a Murderer and a Human Rights Violator. This is the only chance Gota has got to change this outlook, act independently and act in a manner to revise his name from a Murderer and Human Rights violator to be named as a honest independent politician who turned the country around. How can he do this? Only by being neutral during this coming election and acting for the betterment of the Citizens of Sri Lanka and not for the personal benefit of Rajapakses and Bad Mouth Pohottuwa Rapists, Murderers and Paga Kings.

    ” Known”

    Professor Kumar invented a common candidate before election in 2015.

    ” Unknown”

    Professor Kumar has invented a common candidate after the election in 2019.

    If Sampanthar like experienced politician or Chandrika like master political manipulator or Professor Kumar like erudites cannot see in the world the sun comes in east in the morning and sets in the West and in the evening and they don’t understand simple things like that, why blame Balangoda Veda Buddhists for being below IQ 79?

    *** There are no unknowns about Gotha because he is standing stark naked without anything on. He is a born racist, Killer a Criminal and an Idiot who doesent believe in Rule of Law. He is someone who dragged his own 4 Star General in his under pants.
    He will quit as soon as the State Department deivers its verdict. Hopefully they will say he cannot renounce his citizenship without FBI and State Deparment Clearence

    Let the man get on with his job.Admire him for his ability to get a job done well .He is well aware of dirty Politics and it is the reason for having military trained people with great work ethics is in his administration.
    This country needs one law that everyone should adhere to.This country has a great administrating system it needs to be refined so that people benefit from it greatly without wasting a lot of money.
    This is a blessed country and we all must be loyal to the country and be Sri Lankan first.
