“I Am The Architect Of Sri Lanka’s Recent Change” CBK Claims

The former President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga last night said that she was the architect of Sri Lanka’s recent change. Kumaratunga, in an interview with Sirasa TV, discussed extensively about her experiences in relation to the Rajapaksas’ politics and the internal issues of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party. She also expressed her views on the political future of Sri Lanka.

      I am no fan of CBK.

      However, I give her due credit for the historic, critical & strategic role she played in kicking out the former dictator. She was indeed a decisive factor. History will be kind to her for that alone.

      We must never forget the enormity of the revolution we have just achieved. It is still like a dream. Challenge is to transform the dream into tangible changes.

      It is now time for CBK to take a backseat. Play a watchful role on behalf of the people. Nothing more.

      Cheers!

      PS: Was the former dictator invited to the Independence Day celebration? Did he choose not to appear? I don’t miss him, but what’s the protocol? CBK was sitting pretty on the stage after 10 years. For the sake of civilized politics I welcome her back.

        what I like in her Personality is nothing else, she is open with her remarks while MR was telling palatable and doing the otherway around.In the same time, unlike the bugger she would never try to eat the full cake by herself. ANyways as rhetorics of MR caused millions to become hallozinatied thinking that he uttered simply the truth of anything. But that was his political tricks being a populists.

        Ben ,

        Invitations had been sent , thank god , he didn’t show up ! imagine for the last bloody 9 years , that red shawl appearing with dark sunnies at almost every national event , what a curse ?

        CBK was a corrupt leader but she would be forgiven for all her past misdeeds as she spared (saved) tens of thousand of SL lives from a certain blood bath.

          WHAT ARE THE MAIN CHARACTERISTICS OF GOOD GOVERNANCE?

          Good governance is accountable

          Accountability is a fundamental requirement of good governance. Local government has an obligation to report, explain and be answerable for the consequences of decisions it has made on behalf of the community it represents.

          Good governance is transparent

          People should be able to follow and understand the decision-making process. This means that they will be able to clearly see how and why a decision was made – what information, advice and consultation council considered, and which legislative requirements (when relevant) council followed.

          Good governance follows the rule of law

          This means that decisions are consistent with relevant legislation or common law and are within the powers of council. In the case of Victorian local government, relevant legislation includes the Local Government Act 1989 and other legislation such as the Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008, and the Equal Opportunity Act 2010.

          Good governance is responsive

          Local government should always try to serve the needs of the entire community while balancing competing interests in a timely, appropriate and responsive manner.

          Good governance is equitable and inclusive

          A community’s wellbeing results from all of its members feeling their interests have been considered by council in the decision-making process. This means that all groups, particularly the most vulnerable, should have opportunities to participate in the process.

          Good governance is effective and efficient

          Local government should implement decisions and follow processes that make the best use of the available people, resources and time to ensure the best possible results for their community.

          Good governance is participatory

          Anyone affected by or interested in a decision should have the opportunity to participate in the process for making that decision. This can happen in several ways – community members may be provided with information, asked for their opinion, given the opportunity to make recommendations or, in some cases, be part of the actual decision-making process.

        Quoting from yours above:

        “We must never forget the enormity of the revolution we have just achieved.”

        I really dont think that our people (majority) are aware of that. They just forget everything as everything was alright under the brutal MR Regime.

        It was a real revolution to my eye. I was surprised to see all by my eyes while vacationing, the way they MR thugs handled teh last election campaign.

        Ben Hurling

        “I am no fan of CBK”

        Nor am I.

        Soon after she was elected as the then prime minister she managed to stop almost all killings in the South.

        She appointed three commissions to investigate all human rights violations from 1987 to 1990. The commissions submitted findings to Chandrika the then president. The commissions found credible evidence against to charge the perpetrators in 30,000 cases. The establishment refused to charge them though the commissions had identified the criminals. Anurudha Ratwatte overruled chandrika. His excuse was that the armed forces were fighting a war against LTTE therefore such prosecutions could demoralize them and create conflict.

        She was the only one who stood on peace platform and won 62% of the popular votes.

        Give credit where credit is due.

        Visually comparing CBK and MR you see a significant difference. MR is adorned with worldly goods such as a gold Rolex watch and gold abound. A sign of a dictatorial psychopath, while CBK is in simple attaire. The way both address interviews is also significant one can see the difference from their body language. MR looks like a thug who has found new riches and power.

        “The enormity of the revolution can never be forgotten”. Well said.

        CBK came forward as a credible, winnable candidate and gave credence to an alternative possibility.

        For some time more,three have to be in the front position. MS in the driving seat, RW next to him and CBK by the latter’s side.

      Reference this claim, I was under the impression that Prof. KUMAR
      DAVID was the archtitect with the COMMON CANDIDATE theory when he
      proposed Rev. Shobita followed by others choosing Chandrika etc etc.
      It is in this process that Maithri clicked?

      Had it leaked, Maithri without question would have been white-vanned!!

    Madame Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga,

    RE: “I Am The Architect Of Sri Lanka’s Recent Change” CBK Claims

    Thank you, the Common Opposition and all the Voters.

    We also need to thank Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa and his Astrologers as well, along with his shills, white-washers, cronies and other undesirables.

    I grant the credit to Chandrika for delivering us from the devilish misrule of Mahinda Rajapaksa. But that is where my thanks will end.

    I for one will not be able to overlook Chandrika’s sins of the past. Her administration was full of corruption and ineptitude. I may even forgive her for that but will never forgive her for stealing the money from the hands of the pathetic tsunami orphans. She just like her now discredited counterpart are the same – “Tsunami Horas”.

      What ever said and done , Hadn’t CBK come forward to unite the disorganized opposition , none of these outcomes would have been possible , without CBK , there wouldn’t have been a common candidate of MY3 , without MY3’s candidacy , UNP’s full weight behind CC was very doubtful , people tend to underestimate the enormity of the challenge which we had then , just imagine any one else coming forward to challenge the mighty MR , say Karu , Ven Sobitha or Ranil , would there be the same desired outcome ? Ranil would have got much of the UNP support , but would it possible to split the SLFP vote base ? MY3 was acceptable to every one , especially for those die hard UNP supporters , owing to his Mr clean image (similar to Ranil’s ),we must be grateful for CBK for coming forward and rescuing the nation , CBK’s work is not over , she must make sure that none of the Rajapakses gets the nominations to contest any election ever ,none of the Rajapakses deserves to continue politics in SL, walikada and Bogambara are the rightful places for them ,both MY3 and Ranil being gentlemen , they might extend an olive branch to these wolfs , only CBK’s presence would hamper any of these unwarranted gestures !

      CBK’s revelations was a mild slap on Rajitha , even though Rajiha took a huge chunk of responsibility of ousting MR , his name was nowhere in her vocabulary , that must have hurt Rajitha .

      CBK please stay back and guide these two gentlemen , both are like brothers of the same mother , MR and his band of thieves will take the situation for granted and may oust the people’s government before we know.

      PS: Dinesh Gunawardana (The biggest joker) and wimal Booruwansa need to show where they belong , certainly both of them taking undue advantage of the situation , CBK over to you Madam !

        YOu are spot on. I agree with you fully here.
        Yes, many seem tohave forgotten it to this day. Our people have been suffering from a syndrome of rare kind. They only know what MR media men spread across the nation. But to this day, almost everything is becoming clear that the MR thugs looted the nation/counrty to the core.
        Without CBK mediation nothing would have worked to chase away the bugger. On my last visit paid to the country, I thought MR srilanka is not the country I knew before. Whereever I travelled – only the posters of MR were displayed as it was not a prez elecition but an exhibition of MR – depicting a one man show.

            http://www.dailymirror.lk/62799/removing-mohan-reinstating-shirani-null-and-void-sarath-n-silva

            Why cant the authorities accelerate the process of corruption investigations against MR ? Only way out is to put him jail for all he has commited. There he is saved than sending him to Hague. The wounds that the buggers kleptocracy generated would take longer to heal and relieve the nation.

    CBK clearly expresses as to why she had been silent over the years. Adambara Thatha had threatened her directly – media institutions had been advised not to interview her. All these reveal today.
    People of this country have right to know what was really going on in the coutnry under MR adminsitration. This interview is the first interview after 9 years of her silence.

      WHETHER we like it or not, like her or not she was the architect for this change, with the help of virtually all the Muslims and most of the Tamils, despite the boycott lobbying by a few Tamil groups who did not understand politics.

      Out of the 6.2 Million votes generated by the opposition the Tamils delivered 1.8 Million votes and Muslims 600,000. A total of 2.4 Million.

      The rest of the votes were gathered by, UNP block votes, SLFP and Bandaranayake votes, JHU, and JVP. Hirunika as an individual helped in gathering lots of votes.

      Chandrika was well accepted by New Delhi and Washington which played an active role. I cannot disclose other details which happened in Delhi, London and Colombo. That is why even Mr. Illanko from the IHC was asked to leave the country, and 3 days after the R brothers asked me to leave. I returned on the 9th of January despite the instructions in the immigration computer made by Gothabaya Rajapaksa and the SIS chief DIG Wagista.

      Title of the current article is wrong. She has not said like that.
      She just said, yes it was she who supported to build up the new alliance. Please listen to the Interview before making your judgements. May be last few years have learnt you guys only to read the local media and react. So were 5.7 mio supporting MR in the election.

          but she never said that she was the only person to have done it.. she further added that was not just originated during the last 6 months, but for over last 2 years or so. MR when he expresses things as if he is the only person to have loved the nation, not giving any room to say anything else. But people ahve to judge it.. just because of his term managed to terminate LTTE terror, should you guys allow him to rape your generations ? I think I agree with Srilal.. wihtout CBKs direct mediation nothing could have been achieved this manner. MR and the stupid men had been shocked since CBK touched the issue. Filthy man SB to attack her to that manner, was only becuse all those men had all fears against her involvment.

            Quite right. She was the missing link. She arrived at the right time to bring both RW of the UNP and MY3 of SLFP together. She is well aware of both their temperaments to know they will click together, and she took the risk against a formidable MR prepared to do anything to stay in power.

            It is obvious as politics goes, MY3 and RW would have not trusted each other since they are both of opposing parties. But not anymore with CB standing by solid and fearless to took action to save her own party whilst also saving the country from sliding further into an abyss. We now know they (RW and MY3) are both squeaky clean, humble, sincere in their efforts and don’t mince their words. All of which are good signs for the goodwill of our country. Now it is upto her to take a back seat and not get in the way of these two party stalwarts to get the country back on track, after a near and close call cataclysmic disaster if they had lost.

              Yes, Marwan, in her Interveiw she makes it very clear that our people are suffering from rare form of amensia. All that because MR media units sowed all in favour of them. No credit was shared either. As if his greed did guide him to the end. As no other president MR had no ability to use his brains. No vision at all seen in his action. Believe me – how can MR be sitting in the same stage allowing Wimal weerawansa (not worth even to be a coconut picker) to attack My3 to a manner as nobody owuld agree. So did MR to CBK or any other leader of the coutnry who he thought was not right. Can you imagine… ? MR had beeen behaving as if he is the number one ganankaraya – IRC TYPE… but using all sinhala rhetorics focusing on the rural halloznatioted folks. But he failed to judge the power of the people. How could he ? He is the most low educated but pompous leader we ever had in our history. Now peopel would say, no.. he is a good leader just because his term found end to the TERROR, but it was a problem of interpretation gave him total credit for the war winning. BUt as we all knew from Europe on, it was a collective achievement in a critical point where Ltte WAS globally defeated.

It even boiled over to all aspects of country’s administration.

                  Yes Marwan, I am telling you -the impact of state media specially focused on the gulliable rural folks were very finely set by MR thuggish machineries. It is like if curseful lyrics of songs would have been played by state media again and again, the folks would only know about the contents of them – similarly the boasts of MR and oligarchs were painted in rural mind sets as NOTHING could erase them easily. War victory claimed by his term made it even tigher so that those mind sets would take long to see it beyond. I myself wondered why some close me and my family even thought MR is the only leader- they even attacked me verbally in several of the conversation I had with them just pointing at magical southern high way as a wonder ONE super man. Among them were school teachers and univesity educated men and women. They felt I should have been manipulated by wrong views fed by west because I have been living out the country for decades.
                  However I could bear all these in last November back in Home country – my uttermost wish was to see Rajanos be away from lanken active politics. That happened as we won a lotto.. A great feeling really looking back all these. :)))))))))))))))))))))))

      He would never write a book about him – since srilanka is a man dominated country. You women should be aware of that. CBK was attacked to have bought mansions by MR supportiv media instituions. None of them were near to truth. But today, when all high profile abuses are being revealed like to have ordered to purchase a luxury kind of airplane only for use of MR – latter has not been critised by that Victor Iwan… he is biased as no others. There should be new kind of unbiased jouranlists in this country – they could better start writing the most awaiting book of the most corrupted politician in all times -none other than the Mahinda Jarapakshe.

    She could be the architect of Sri Lanka’s recent change for a genuine reason, i.e. love for the country. However, people must be having reservations about her choice of the common candidate. Look at his behaviour after winning the elections by calling the then government members as Dushithayo(corrupt), Ethanol Karayo and Kudu karayo(drug dealers).

    1. None of these Kudu Karayo or Ethanol Karayo or corrupt people have been arrested yet. Has the new president got a backbone to start this process ASAP?

    2.He has appointed his brother supposed to be a corrupt person as head of Telecom.

    3.He has started running around Independent Square every morning accompanied by media meeting newly weds like his predecessor.(Seems having an inferiority complex)

    4. He has started going around famous temples in the country worshipping Bo trees like his predecessor something You Madam Chandrika did not wisely do.

    Dear Madam,

    Nobody single handed can claim the success of the recent regime change. I am sure influenced it partly or might be even wholly but it required the support of collective forces to undo a corrupt regime (which incidentally you were responsible in ushering in to governance). MS sacrificed his life to come forward as a candidate. Had he lost none of you would have been there to weep for him at his funeral. If MS had lost the public who supported then opposition would have had to also pay with their dear life. The time is right in Sri Lanka to stop saying “I”, the time is right to stop saying sinhala only, tamil only only or muslim only. The time is right for us to only say WE or Sri Lankans.If we can do this then we have achieved much more than just a regime change.

    Finally all politicians must know that it was the people who finally spoke and made a change and they the politicians are only mere interments in the hands of the people. Never again will politicians lead their lives unaccountable to the people. Technology has given us a voice that politicians once took away from us. It is this collective voice that eventually brought about change in the wee hours of the 9th morning. A change that the army, police, MR, his all powerful brother and Chief Justice collectively feared to fight.

    NOW, you have a bigger role to play during and prior to the General Elections… DO NOT make provisions for MR to come back to power for more destruction of the Nation… Glad to note that you had to hide certain things from others, even from Ranil and believe in YOURSELF to bring in the coalition together…

    take a bow..

    It is really a great achievement, one perhaps changed the destiny of this beautiful island. If not for this intervention, we could have had the experience of Burma, and you could have end up endured the fate of Ayan Suyi. Mohan even made your life even more miserable than that of Ayan by sending you to the jail than the house arrest meted out to Ayan. What was brewing for you in MR’s brewery, we didn’t know. Luckily people sensed the right moment and have struck the blow.
    Jeyawewa for all of you-Ranil, MS, Mangala, Ranjith, Arujuna, GF, CR and JVP.

    Hope you will see through all the reforms that you thought to be done are done in the time ahead, most importantly the national question, which has been dragging on for a long time. And, just siting and watching while the poor youth being killed from either side to build up a political future around this pathetic situation is not something we expect from future leadership, and be relevant. The opportunity should be seized and not let go, that is what MR did. The current leadership of TNA is a group that can see the big picture and have the support of the Tamils live here. Work with them and come out with a solution that is acceptable for all. Need not to reinvent the wheel per sec, implementing what is already provided is a step in the right direction. We trust you, and prove you are trustworthy, will you? Thanks Madam.

    Cone on . Give her credit for toppling the regime. There is no way that Ranil could have done it.

    One thing can be concluded. MaRa had racist foolish people behind him. Maithree, Ranil and CBK have intelligent and true human behind current gov.

      Civilised world is restricted to the educated kind of people.
      She was not the only person to have been made silent by MR led UPFA regime but there are many – all of them would add their thought one behind the other. We the nation were ruled by an idiot thanks go to the stupid gallible masses who would never – let alone today- raise no question learnt to believe anything in the air. Conspiracy theory was one and the other is Electric chair. All these were gonibilla stories to the masses. Lanken free Journalism should be ashamed to have slept that long – letting the innocient people to be misguided by MR co. for such a long time.
      Credit related to war victory was grabed by MR thugs like wanted to ate the cake only by them sidlining real war hero -SF

      All other development projects were mastered for their sake abusing billions of funds for their survivial.

      All these will surface in the days to come waking up the gawking nation (at least 5.7 mios that nevertheless voted for MR for his Rasakatha- fairy tales)

    Reccent change? My foot!! The more you talk
    of change the more it remains the same. CBK
    was a pathetic sight.

    In answer to one question on defeating the
    LTTE, what did she say. It was not Rajapaksa
    and party. It was she who had done it much
    earlier.

    Thanks to Maithripala Sirisena. He said a
    different thing altogether. In his indepedence
    day address to the nation he did admit that
    the previous administration defeated the LTTE.
    Rajapaksa and his family was corrupt, inept
    and worse, uncivilised. But Maithri gave credit
    where it was due. That is his human face and
    rural quality.

      Man you just need to ask yourself who fielded MS ?
      That can give you wake up. Anyways, just attacking CBK of her govts – not giving her a chance to explain why as had been the case during the last 9 years – cant bring us further. People of this country should know real facts and figures about everything.. not fabricated numbers or anythings that MR thugs have introduced to lanken people. ” MR is not appropriate enough to lead mannigmarket but – so called democracies of our kind will pave avenues them to get elected “. See alone the numbers voted for him last tmie – over 5.7mio among the eligible voters. That is nearly half of lanken voters. Meaning all those went intoxicated towards MR was because all media worked in favours of them …. latter is the case with North korea. Even if the north korean leader let his Uncle to be killed by using trained starved dogs – no nothing came out in that regard. No world journalist got the facts about that stories. So were the reigns of MR in srilanka. People had no guts to fight them, because they knewn white van or any kind of harrasement would take their lives. MR was a born killer who had the chance to lead the nation whose majority are living wihtout knowing the real facts of his governance.

      Donkeys of your kind can serve nobody.
      MS was not emergered as a mushroom.
      That should have been a long process.
      Even if MS confirmed it 3 weeks before.
      He was the man who risked his life.
      Had he been defeated, MR would have cut him to pieces and used for his bites was what many knew. CBK was also in the view, that MR would have spiced her if he won. He has proved his abilities sending many across the country if would react aagianst, no excuses can be there… even MERVIN the vermin was in the opinion today that Rajaapkshes are so barbaric.
      To me, those men earn regardless of their contribution to the war victory, hard punishments to what they have done to this nation.
      We the lankens had a good image in terms being buddhists but Rajapakshes have changed it turning us to barbaric buddhists.

    You, no doubt contributed in no small measure towards Rajapaksa’s defeat. The Tamils, on the other hand, will not forget you for the embargo on several essential items, such as basic foods, even basic medications like Asprin, Kerosine oil etc.that you placed on them, as a result of which several people, especially the old and the infirm lost their lives prematurely in vain. At an interview in South Africa,you also referred to the Sri Lankan Tamils as illegal immigrants.Bensen

      That clearly shows the greater difference between two leaders.

      Though otherway around is painted by MR handled press instittuions -however you cant live on blatant lies for ever, lies have short legs… this is what we have to learn from current situation.

      As some point out here, alone Ranil would not have done that.
      Alone MY3 would not have achieved it to build up a coalition of that sort.
      Even that SOYSA of UPFA recently added how CBK contacted him immeidately after the election was won by new coalition. There she could have been so pompous go on boasting the way MR has always been, but the inteilligent lady thought – the election is won but the next step would be to find ways how to share the victory to go forward. That is how her mediation further worked on silencing the SLFP men that did not support to MY3. In the end, the rest of UPFA too agrreed to stand by the new coaltion. These should have been worked with wisdom No doubt about that.

      he is cleaning the toilet of MR these days, since he was one another boy who close to MR from that day on. Viktor saw it very clearly those toilets are overflowing, but never reacted adequately. It is high time, rhematic writer, Victor to recorrect his mistakes to have attacked CBK in tha tmanner.

          Maali if you are living in srilanka – you should have grasped it long back. How many among the men attack the women PUBLICLY inthe society today? As a female driver – it should be horrible down there.
          I agree fully with Ms Rossy Senayakes permamently fight asking more female candidates to be elected to the parliament at least next time. They the politicians regardless of the party politics speak a lot but not doing the least towards uplifment of female power in many areas where it is necessary. But CBK has proved these men with filthy mouths could easily be shut, if women would come forward to save the nation. Lankens are a man dominated society not second to arabic world. However, they have forgetten to this day, that the female PM was produced from the country after the SWRD’s assasination.

    Even France … that BASTION of Liberte’, Egalite’, Fraternite’ … has BANNED the Hijab in PUBLIC.

    The rest of the Western World is also gradually moving in the same direction to IMPOSE the rubric “When in the West, do as the Westerners do” on their Muslim residents.

    OMG, is Sri Lanka going to allow Hijabs NOW that SL is being RECREATED in the image of the West? Would that not be OUT OF STEP with the West?

    What will the “Yahapalanaya” puppets of the “West” do? Oh my, what a DILEMMA for them!!

    Freed From Fear, Lankan Muslim Women Observe World Hijab Day
    Tue, Feb 3, 2015, 09:04 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

    Feb 03 (NIE) COLOMBO- Symptomatic of the sea change in the atmosphere in Sri Lanka following the overthrow of the sectarian government of Mahinda Rajapaksa, young Lankan Muslim women publicly observed World Hijab Day on January 31 without any fear of being targeted by government-backed Buddhist extremist outfits like the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS).

      The freedom to wear what they please as long as it is in keeping with modesty is also a part of Yahapalanaya. Just as much as there are women have the freedom to cover up the least whilst exposing the most, there are others on the opposite end of the spectrum who would prefer to reveal the least, while covering up most of themselves, and that freedom is guaranteed under the UN Charter of human rights. France is not the best country that sets a good example as their freedom of expression has been turned to ridiculing of other religious faiths.

        “Just as much as there are women have the freedom to cover up the least whilst exposing the most, there are others on the opposite end of the spectrum who would prefer to reveal the least, while covering up most of themselves, “

        Do the women have the freedom to chose what please them or the dress code is imposed from the above, mostly by male members of the family?

        I am not sure why women need to cover up from head to bottom including their faces while men are free to wear whatever pleases them?

        Would you advise/enforce Muslim women in this island to wear Burka?

        • 0

          Would I advise/enforce Muslim women in this island to wear Burka? Of course not. A Muslim woman understands what Allah has revealed through Quran in this respect, and they will fulfill it in accordance with the strength of their Imaan (faith). The Niqab (face cover) is just a further extension of their reverence and obedience to please Him and submit to His will.

          The Quranic saying goes as :

          “O children of Adam, We have brought down to you garments to cover your private parts, as well as for adornment, yet the garment of reverence is the best. These are some of God’s signs, perhaps they will remember.” 7:26

          To revere God and know that He is always watching us is the basic rule for the dress code in the Quran. Any woman knows quite well what is decent and morally acceptable and what is revealing and seductive. Women do not need to be told, they know how to maintain righteousness and how not to. God created the woman and therefore He knows that she can make this distinction. This is why God set the rule of revering God and maintaining righteousness as the first rule.

          The word ‘hijab’ appears seven times in the Quran. Five of them as ‘hijab’ and two times as ‘hijaban’, these are verses: 7:46, 33:53, 38:32, 41:5, 42:51, 17:45 & 19:17.

          You need to be Muslim to appreciate these values. It is not for reason to be different from the rest, but rather to be protected from harm’s way and bring peace of mind to her husband, father, brother and son that she is not flaunting her femininity to draw attention on herself.

      Ananda Wijesinghe,

      Let your woman expose whatever part of her body she wishes to expose.

      Let my woman cover whatever part of the body she wishes; she will not allow herself to be bullied into exposing what you want to see.

      And that is freedom.
