Government Baits Tissa A For 500 Million Big Bucks

UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake reinforced suspicions rampant about his allegiances with the regime for months by agreeing to cross over to Mahinda Rajapaksa‘s Government for the “small sum” of Rs. 500 million, Colombo Telegraph reliably learns.

Chandrani and Tissa

Chandrani and Tissa

Attanayake has admitted himself to the Asiri Hospital in Colombo since Saturday night.

Rs. 200 million has already been paid to Attanayake in advance of his crossover. The advance is believed to have been paid out to a third party.

Attanayake is expected to make the move in Parliament on Monday unless a flaw emerges in the Rajapaksa Government’s plans.

UNP MP Chandrani Bandara who is on intimate terms with Attanayake has been part of the 500 million deal. It is believed the Government has baited both MPs for that sum of money. Attanayake is a National List UNP member  having failed to win a seat from his electorate in the last Parliamentary election.

Colombo Telegraph exclusively revealed details some months ago about how the Government had won over Attanayake by handing over a diplomatic posting in Dubai to Bandara’s son Rukshan.

Since that time, Attanayake has been working hand in glove with Tiran Alles, now exposed as a Rajapaksa Government proxy to bring Sajith Premadasa back into the fold as Deputy Leader of the UNP. The Alles-Attanayake-Premadasa bandwagon firmly believed that Premadasa’s re-entry would cement Ranil Wickremesinghe’s candidacy as presidential contender to face off against Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Colombo Telegraph can now reveal that the deal between Attanayake and the Rajapaksa regime was struck by no other than master wheeler dealer Tiran Alles. Alles recently attempted to arm-twist Sobitha Thero into backing down from the common opposition platform in order to allow President Rajapaksa’s ride to his third term to be smooth sailing.

Alles, together with his ally in the UNP Sajith Premadasa has been on a hectic mission to derail the common candidacy to ensure Ranil Wickremesinghe becomes Rajapaksa’s main contender in the election.

Premadasa’s grand plan, masterminded by Alles was for Wickremesinghe to lose the presidency and be forced to hand over the reins of the UNP to Ranasinghe Premadasa’s son.

Facing a crisis because of the shocking move by the opposition to field Maithripala Sirisena Alles has now become the chief broker for the Rajapaksa regime. He will try to help the Government to bait UNP members who are on the fence in order to dampen the Opposition momentum.

Colombo Telegraph reliably learns that several other UNP members are also in negotiations to join the Government. Many of the members are staunch supporters of Sajith Premadasa – including Buddhika Pathirana and Palitha Range Bandara.

    All the political Scoundrels who sit in the Diya-wenna Parliament of Corrupt clowns and morons are being exposed.. one by one!

    In the end only those who have NO PRINCIPALS and who are CORRUPT to the core will be shown to stand with the Corrupt Mahinda Jarapassa family.

    All this horse trading and MONEY POLITICS must end and a new constitution must BAN crossing the floor of the house and anyone who does so lose the seat.

      Hey Stanley,

      This guy is not fit to hold a candle to Maithripala who has amassed billions of rupees through his brother’s rice monopoly. Maithripala’s brother is missing from Sri Lanka at the moment because he knows the news is explosive.

      For a self-claimed democrat, your idea of banning crossovers is very undemocratic! Get a life.

        So you have no proof to claim Maithripala himself is a crook or is guilty of anything, so you pick on someone who isn’t a candidate.

          Banning a crossover might be undemocratic but allowing a turncoat to hold unto the seat is worse. If a person crosses over he should also give-up the seat. The seat should be filled by a bye-election.

      I would imagine Tiran Alles’s operations are criminal.

      Corrupting elected officials is a grave crime in any country, I would presume.

      May God bless Sri Lanka with a change of governance, come January.

      I am sure new Sri Lanka can find space for Tiran at Welikada.

      Funds are available in plenty for these deals..Sajin de Vass Gunawardena is a multi billionaires in DOLLAR terms.He will surely and easily bank roll such deals for he has much to gain.500 million rupees is peanuts for Sajin who has 7 helicopters , besides so many assets abroad which have been listed in CT earlier.

    This is how this SWINDLER TURNED DICTATOR won the first election by bribing the LTTE through PIMP ALLES.

    Won’t these foolish MP’s ever come to their senses and don’t these fellows have an iota of love to their country over their personal interests.

    It looks like the patriotic songs sung by these scoundrels are nothing but hollow lies. These fellows should be stripped naked and made to run for their lives.

    When will at least our voters be wise and send these fellows to the gutters, where they rightfully belong for plundering the poor people’s money and having an extravagant life. From where the hell did MARA THE SWINDLER get so much wealth?

    This election had to be won in the streets. From one side MARA THE DICTATOR is offering carrots to the greedy and the self seeking wolves and GOTA THE MERCENARY is showing the stick to the vulnerable. How on earth can this election be won by fair means.

    PEOPLE POWER IS THE NEED OF THE HOUR.

    S. B. Dissanayake was paid Rs 300 million I was told. Gen. Fonseka’s PC ministers were paid Rs 40 million each and a visa to a western country.

    So its a tired payment system. The breakdown of Basil Rajapaske MP purchasing system appears to be as follows.

    Rs. 400 million – Senior MP close to the leader.
    Rs. 300 million – Senior MP (normal).
    Rs. 40 million – PC member.

    How does MR and Co get all this money? Whose money is it that they are distributing like confetti? E.g, Is the Sanda-Hiru Seya project a license to scoop up money from the whole nation, those unquestioning Buddhist devotees. Why should tons of gold should be buried in a pile of brick in the name of Buddha…..this is not Buddhism at all, its stealing money from the poor people to feed the ego of few. The whole thing sounds like a confidence trick to me.

      >>>>> How does MR and Co get all this money? Whose money is it that they are distributing like confetti?

      Its simple., Rajapaksas have made a fortune by trading the water buffaloes in Medamulna Walauwa and made a fortune out of it and that make them cash-ready to do horse trading and any whore in the Lankan politics is with Rajapaksas reach.

    These are all CT creations sponsored by Mangala mafia. Now that Ranil and Sajith are together and UNP is strong and backing the common candidate, Mangala is displaced along with Karu and his Bhikku clan.

    Mangala’s conspiracy did not work and CT, mouthpiece of Mangala, is working overtime to rectify the backfired plan with cooking stories. YOU ALL ARE GOOD MEDIA CHEFS, COOKING NEWS. What is the next recipe in store??.

      To the Mahinda supporters, this is a website run by NGOs, the diaspora, Prabhakaran’s ghost, and other ‘conspirators’. To some of the Maithripala supporters, this is run by the secretly pro-Mahinda Mangala and other ‘conspirators’.

      Keep the work up, CT. I’ve learnt that when one manages to piss off all parties, one is generally doing something right.

    The best for Sri Lanka is that MR returns to power over blood bling and blast, so that people learn the lessons the hard way. This way they get to read the book of modern democracy to the last page without receiving a half-baked relief only halfway through it. More self-actualization is needed on the part of our average contitient which could propel our dirty politics beyond the sub-continental political mediocrity to something more intelligent. We need a bit more of the bitter medicine, and I want MR to retain power through a 3rd, and if possible, a forth term.

      I don’t particularly wish for him to remain, but looking at the bigger picture, I can’t help but see your point. This bugger needs to be in power for people to collectively realize that one good deed doesn’t outweigh everything else, and to get sick of authoritarianism. The only way this country is going to mature politically.

    Politicians are dishonest scoundrels, but we in Sri Lanka, have been cursed with far too many who will even sell their mothers for the right price. Is this what we have to put up with? Traitors to their parties, who will betray even the people of Sri Lanka, for a high price?

    The Rajapaksa’s are trying to win by hook or by crook, and they will attack anyone who stands in their way, intimidate the other side, and try to buy the election.

    Shame on those who have no self respect, and can change their loyalties for a few millions.

    Thank you CT for exposing the corrupt bribe getter Tissa Attanayake to us CT readers. Could CT also find where this money is Banked and under whose Account.

    I knew from the beginning that Tissa is a slimy guy who would have exposed many UNP secrets to Rajapakses. We herd that Tissa is admitted to Asiri Hospital yesterday to get away from media. Also expose the other broker crook Tiran Alles. Please expose these pimp crooks to the world.

    First of all Rajapakse the Tsunami thief famous Alibaba master Pimp does not have any respect from the public or from International community. All he does is to get and give bribes and buy opposition party members and the voters from Taxpayer money.

    CT should also expose all the other Rajapakse bribe getters so when the change come, people could have access to these ill gotten money.

    This is the very reason why this damn position ” Executive President ” need to be abolished…
    Sri Lanka do not have people to hold this Office and step down gracefully after the term ends….
    Also, Sri Lankan voter base is not educated enough understand the meaning of this Executive Presidency…
    However MR is a wrong person….he only knows to BRIBE …BRIBE…he is a F…..ing bribe king..
    So we all can imagine the psychology of those in Politics….Ranil …CBK…are the only remaining
    Democrats in this Country who could still command the respect of people…
    Sri Lanka will never ever see people of that calibre to get appointed to this Office in the future..
    Therefore it is dangerous…extremely dangerous…to continue with this system
    Mahinda has ruined the country…

    He cannot speak or understand any other language. He is a real gamaya. How did UNP promote him to hold this position. His squeaky voice really upsets people and caused havoc for UNP and propped up Mahinda.

    Thank you CT for exposing the Parliament whores and pimps whose only purpose is to betray the voters for money and bribes to the world.

    This is how low our Parliament, Judiciary, Police, Election Commissioner, Government servants, Government media etc, have fallen into.

    I think Rajapakse villege crocodile have turn Sri Lanka into Pig eating shit pit.

    Also from where on earth crook Rajapakse get this amount of money (500 Million Rupees) to bribe a single opposition MP. For what purpose. After all UPFA have 160 MPs in the 225 parliament seats. If so why they still worry to bribe and take in more opposition MPs.

    Finally both CT and opposition parties and the Media should expose this mega scam to the world. This is poor peoples money and they belong to them.

    This also could be Black money. Ethanol, Cocain, Kasippu, Gambling, 10% and mega commission money or fake China projects money.

    CT. Please expose these Rajapakse illicit and ill gotten money and illicit Government bribes and deals to the world.

    Also opposition parties should expose these frauds to the Voters to educate them and to win their votes.

    Thank you CT for exposing our corrupt Parliament Whore House to the world.

    25 Perchs of dirt in Cinnamon Gardens cost USD 1.5 Mil plus..

    With a descent house it is USD 2.5 Mil upwards.

    And 60 % of the properties there are Elite freeholds and 40 % are Vellalas.

    So USD 4..3 Mil for the General Secretary of the Elite Anglican Vellalas UNP is pretty good bang for the buck in Diaspora jargon.

    And it is nothing compared to the Billions in Diaspora Bank accounts..

    RW should have a press conference and request all the soundrels in his own party to accept whatever bribe is on offer and depart and leave the UNP in peace. These fellows have done nothing but to weaken the opposition by heaping insult upon insult and RW as well as the UNP as a whole while pretending to care a fig leaf for the opposition, the UNP or the country. It is time they were called out identified and thrown out once and for all never to be taken back again and as soon as the despot can be sent home they should also be among those arrested for fraud. Cross overs were made legal due to a supreme court ruling given by none other than Sarath Silva. It is time this was made illegal retroactively so that very scoundrel who ever crossed over for money can be prosecuted.
