Govt Officials To Foot The Bill For Mahinda Rajapaksa’s Altruism

It seems President Rajapaksa has been discovering various cost efficient ways to carry out his campaigning for the upcoming Presidential polls even before the elections have been announced.

AgriIt has been reported that the various meet-ups that are presently being held at the Temple Trees targeting the upcoming polls almost every day for various government departments, are being financed by the relevant government institutions themselves.

A letter issued by the Commissioner General of the Agrarian Development Department (ADD) on November 14 has revealed that money is being collected from the establishment’s district offices to foot the bill of a meeting that was held at the Temple Trees for farmers’ representatives and Agrarian Development Department officials.

The letter notes that the finances spent on the meeting that was held for these officials on November 10 and 11 cannot be borne by the Agrarian Department due to the lack of funds, and therefore, each Assistant Commissioner and district representative to whom the letter has been issued has been instructed to pay Rs. 150,000 to collect the required finances.

In the letter issued by ADD Commissioner General MAS Weerasinghe, the officials have been instructed to issue a cheque to make the payment before Noevmber 19.

      What did you expect?

      Attorney General’s Dept & Auditor General’s Dept are both under the purview of Rajapassa Brothers & Co.

      They can spend it as they please.

      Rather try and get hold of an invitation, if you can.

      Believe me, it will be a “Dansala” like no other. A feast for your senses. From Egg Hopper action stations to fine French wines.

      Cheers!

      PS: Problem though. You may

      PS: Problem though. You may think it is King’s own money. But, it is actually your own money. You pay huge taxes each time you buy sugar, flour or rice etc..etc. You’ve just been conned again. Surprise!

    From where would they get the money? The people of course. Someone has to pay and it will defintely be not these officials. This is not altruism but political chicanary married to highway robbery.

      Rajasingham,

      We are all glad you are far enlightened now – frankly in an over-compensation mode for the past failings that continued till mid-2013.

      However, while you now want to piontificate about the dansala-offerings, you are still to justify or show remorse for your accepting the same but much higher-priced dansala-style all-paid vacation to Sri Lanka from the same regime. Did you not then realize it was “not altruism but political chicanary married to highway robbery”?

      Don’t you think you need to pay that back, perhaps multi-fold, not to the regime or their cronies but to some who were most affected by the highway robbery?

      Please don’t invoke your new-found “Rasiah from across the pond” – be forthright to answer honestly.

    Last time the Rajapaksa’s hosted various groups including three wheeler drivers, and so many other groups, fed and woo-ed them at Temple Trees, I doubt it was at their expense. They are using official cars, jeeps, and other vehicles, at our expense, to organize their election campaigns, government vehicles were seen used by goons, who travelled all over the country, to destroy posters and decorations belonging to the opposition.

    The Rajapaksas are running their election campaign at no cost to them. It is the helpless people of Sri Lanka who are getting ripped off, and loosing at the end. We deserve to have decent and honest leaders in this country, who will uphold the rule of law, and do the right thing for us, but it is never to be.

    “We deserve to have decent and honest leaders in this country,”

    Er,don’t we get the politicians that we deserve?Aren’t they just the mirror image of the people they represent.How many of the 58% of the people who voted for mahinda at the last presidential election are decent and honest?Will they vote for a decent and honest politician?

      I agree. The naive Sri Lankans are easily fooled by slimy politicians, who turn to the people only during election time. They are totally ignorant of facts, and they do not read the Colombo Telegraph, to know what these scoundrels do. There is no such thing as an honest politician these days. Gone are the days when those who ran for political office were educated, and had the best interests of the country, not their pockets, and the pockets of those around them. The people did vote for these rogues again, and the gullible will vote for them again. If one could look at the personal wealth of our past and present Presidents, before and after taking office, it would be enlightening.

    Are these people compelled to attend the meetings with the Dear Leader? Can these people refuse to meet with Him?

    there is no point in writing comments. All these information should go to the village level especially in the Sinhala areas. They are the people who swallow everything what the Brothers Inc. and their “crumb pickers” says. There must be a mass agitation to protest against Executive Presidency country wide. People must mobilize the masses and explain to them of what is happening in the country. The govt. has started the “tiger bogey” again to dupe the masses!!

    There is a way to get the far flung Village SB Voters to see the Regimes ruination of the peace and justice since 2005, simply by
    producing a DVD using folklore GRAPHICS to educate them how their Vote should be used this time. Some patriotic individual or organisation can do it secretly, specially from the Univarsities.
