      Former Minister of Justice and Buddha Sasana Dr. Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe,

      RE: I Did Not Resign, I Was Sacked: Double Doctor Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe,

      You were sacked. You would not go. You were the mole for the Medamulana MaR and cronies, a Trojan Horse, a Turncoat and Traitor, to the 6.2 million, We the People, who voted to oust MaRa , crooks and cronies, form corruption, nepotism and criminal activities.

      You shoud get the same fate as Dr. Goebbels!

        Could you please pin point what utterances of WR is incorrect or against Yahapalana principals – for me nothing – all what he told were exactly what was/is happening — only idiots who do not want to see the truth as it is are worried and screaming like a bunch of wolves — where is freedom of speech ??? —
        bull shit freedom of speech – isn’t it – if anybody point finger to the government wrong doings – all the kukkas in the cabinet get together and start howling and barking to destroy the whistle blower – before he comes up with the wrong doings of those kukkas also

      Sumanawathie,
      Keselwatta Kid is maintaining a cunning silence. Waiting to ambush Dr Ranil from behind, in the dark. That kid is mafia media mogul Killi Maharaja’s puppet. He can now smell the blood. He knows SL is filled with citizens like yourself, who suffer from blind loyalty. The kid just can’t wait to be King.
      Cheers!

    This is a welcome decision
    Collective responsibility must b respected
    If not you are not a team player
    Whatever that one thinks is not suitable must b sired at the cabinet
    But once a decision is reached it must be defended since it’s a collective decision

    This rogue has no decency and may be not even indulged in any sport in his village school down south

    U don’t play with people’s aspirations for money from wrong doers

    You deserve to be sacked

      This is like nailing Al-Capone for tax fraud as it was difficult to nail him for all the murders, money laundering and racketeering.

      This is only the political side, now his finances and that of his immediate family should be investigated for starters.

      Collective Responsibility: BS. collective responsibility is the whole gang including Ranil wickrasinghe robbed the Central Bank andbow they are silent. Ranil and the gang, do they have any collective responsibility to voeters. Why they are robbing the country and destroying the country while challenging the voters say ing they can not work as the voters vote. Is that the collective responsibility ? to whom you all are working for. Some whereI hear another thief is building the third mansion in Nuwaraeliya.

    “I Did Not Resign, I Was Sacked: Double Doctor Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe”

    Translation: A person does not have to return bribes or santhosam taken if “Sacked” and not “Resigned” as its beyond the individuals control.

    It took a little time but Ranil played the cards proper. My3 would not have sacked him if it was his choice.

    Mr.Wijeyadasa RAJAPAKSE,
    According to some media report, you said that “I was removed to sweep bond scam under the carpet”.
    Why did not you speak about this 1 year back or earlier ? Why I ask you this is in the BBC Sinhala interview you are talking about your “CONSCIENCE “.

    Further why did not you speak up as per your conscience when MR signed a pact with China and developed the port.

    Now you are trying to take refuge under Mahasangha. No wonder mother Lanka keep on weeping in shame about some her well qualified children.

      “According to some media report, you said that “I was removed to sweep bond scam under the carpet”.”

      Isn’t the AG in charge of the Bond file?

      It is just last week that Dealdasa was screaming from roof-tops that AG’s office was independent and he cannot do anything about the 100’s of files on major corruption gathering dust.

      There will be a few jokers that still cheer for this loser.

      Jim, we need to clean up the Sanga.too. Lanka enews reports that some priests were bribed by Wijedasa. They provide the numbers of the vehicles in which the money was transported.That report should be checked and the priests, be they Mahanayakas or podi Nayakes should be prosecuted for bribery.

      Incidentally Sanga draws salaries aka allowances from the Govt (Ministry of Buddha Sasana.That make them public employees. How come they participate in politics.An ordinary Govt servant, if he wants to participate in politics have to resign from his post.That is supposed to have happened to The President Maithreepala Sirisena.Why does not that law apply to the priests.They should get out of the safron Toga.or be forced out like Wijadasa.

    here the news media is very biased. does not this show, that Ranil is a loser. THird minister from his appointments had to resign or sacked. Does not this show wrong policies of Rw. HE got peole jumping from this side to that side. Now, he had to sack him. Who is the real loser. Is it Ranil or if not why ?

    Someone who read my previous comment asking President to retain Wijedasa has sent me a personal email expressing his surprise about my folly of not knowing Wijedasa’s connection with Rajapaksas.

    Of course, I know, who doesn’t, the whole country is aware of it. But who cares, Ranil himself has connections with Rajapaksas. That is not the point. The point is at least there is one Minister in the Cabinet who can be a challenge to Ranil. When he is gone there is nobody. None of the Ministers are genuine, they all play to the gallery.

    Someone said the President will not contest at the next election, if Ranil can be the President so that he will have the protection from Rajapaksas and that Sri Lanka’s politics is a dirty game. False hope, there is not a least chance for Ranil to become the next President.

    The choice of next leader should definitely be a person whose mind is not corrupted by selfish power hungry politics and someone who could present his vision by himself and act by himself without advisers.

    Maha Sangha and Sinhalese Buddhists have a historical obligation to fulfil towards the country. There is high chance of vote rigging to make Ranil win the election. We should not take that fact light.

    When there is a threat to Sinhalese, we should “rise and fight” as our ancient history taught us. This is what we should do for the next two years.

    When there are betrayals, “getting ready in silence” is a must. We should not forget we achieved independence through a peaceful political movement. That is what we should do in 2019/2020.

    Crisis has always ended up by making a new leader. Let’s have faith in the Most Sacred Sri Dalada, “the Silent Protector of Sri Lanka.”

      2/3 of the Citizenry is having a hearty laugh at the Kindergarten Government and Playgroup Opposition. Turncoats are accusing turncoats. Corrupt is protecting corrupt. The entire Parliament is hoodwinking masses.

      JO brought a No Confidence Motion against the UNP Minister Ravi K, then privately told him not to resign. When he resigned they told the country he is not the real culprit and expressed their sympathy to Ravi K. personally.

      When another UNP MInister Wijedasa R was to sack, JO extended their support to him and announced to the public that the allegation against him is baseless.

      People don’t care whether Ministers stay or leave. The general public have their own issues. The economy is only hanging onto a few vital national assets. Once they are gone nothing is left. Only politicians and the 5% higher income earners are thriving.

      There is no point of voting for Greens or Blues ‘cos when they are elected to Parliament they change sides.

      Those who are elected never want to leave as they have now tasted the beehive. Those who were lost are hell bent on coming back sighing and eyeing for the lost beehive. At the next election they will have another SLFP+UNP common bee or a family bee to share the beehive. That way there won’t by any opposition to stop them.

      80% of country’s GDP is debt. 95% of the revenue is used to pay debt repayment. This is what was left by SLFP/UNP leaders after 7 decades. What is the point of electing them again? A radical leadership is necessary minus SLFP/UNP. The political and social corruption have grown so much otherwise there will be a civil war to chase corrupt politicians. People are sick of both SLFP and UNP.

    ” Yadisan wapathe beejan, thadisan harathe palan” -What you reap is what you sow- is an old adage in Pali language. This is what happened to Wijedasa Rajapakse. Most of our present day politicians come from modest back grounds but within no time they forget what they were/are. They amass ill gotten wealth, assume that they are God sent to rule the country/people according to their whims and fancies , the end aim of all actions is to feather their own nests, they get physically bloated and morally deflated/bankrupt and filthily rich. On the whole, counter productive to promoting national interest and welfare. This is what happened to W. Rajapakse. He is very often referred to as the Deal Dasa and identified as the main man behind the undermining of appropriate judicial process to bring the culprits liked to Avan Guard high way robbery.
    If Yahapalanaya is to succeed all corrupt elements in side and out side the Parliament should be routed out irrespective of the position they hold or influence they wield.
    Well done the UNP parliamentarians, Working Committee of the UNP, President, Prime Minister and others pressed for the sacking of this anti-social element.

    RE: I Did Not Resign, I Was Sacked: Double Doctor Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe

    Wijesdasa, Deal-Dasa, is a leach, a koodalla, and sucker will not leave. He had to be fired, literally like that must be dine to a leach, a koodalla, to drop off.

    From the grape vine, bulath vine, vettila vine…..

    We the People…….

    The ‘UNP Radical Tide ’ just within two weeks of its launch has forged ahead in its campaign against the actually corrupt and the true conspirators.

    Following the voluntary resignation of Ravi Karunanayake from his ministerial portfolio even before he was found guilty by the presidential commission , simply based on some evidence given before the commission against him ,it is now learnt the ‘Radical Tide’ has gone past the prime minister and reached the president after expelling the crooked, corrupt, double dealing ,double crossing scoundrel Wijedasa Rajapakse the notorious Trojan horse within the government, from his double ministerial posts , based on reports reaching the vine news.

    We the People……..

    Though Maithripala is the leader of another political party , he was in fact steered to victory by the Radical Tide team that made supreme sacrifices towards that. The request of the Radical Tide to the president is therefore most simple: Their justifiable and reasonable request is, ‘ we have cleaned up our side of the good governance government. It is now your turn to clean up your side.’ Theirs is of course a most reasonable and sensible request in the best interests of the country made to a president, who is the highest in the hierarchy of much hyped good governance government.

    We the People…….

      WR is now free to go after the Presidency. – I DO NOT THINK WR HAVE ENOUGH BRAIN POWER TO DECIDE WHAT HE SHOULD DO , WITHOUT EXPECTING ADVICE FROM EMPTY HEADED IDIOTS

      By the way where did he get the two Doctor’s degrees? CERTAINLY NOT FROM WHERE YOU HAVE OBTAIN YOUR’S – BECAUSE YOU SOUNDE LIKE A DONKY OF FIRST GRADE BUT WR DOES NOT SOUND LIKE THAT

    In the Western democracies this kind of high profile minister being sacked can be a serious matter. Lawsuits may follow. Internal secrets would be forced to come out. Deal protected Old Royals interest in the Avant Garde case. But, UNP would not be willing to bring out. Tilak would block it further. So Deal is safe on most of the crimes he committed. Deal headed AG department as the minister. He has in his hand many secrets the intelligent agents had brought in. Neither he would reveal any one them as some of that information may implicate him.

    Constitutional draft should have been submitted in the parliament by now. Yahapalanaya Gang staged this and distracted that. Sampanthar knows how his sugar mountain, the secret solution was eaten up by the ants. He opened the path for ants by allowing IC to kill TNA and resurrect UNP. Nelson Mandela, Yasir Arabath, Pakistan Generals.. whoever wanted West’s help never surrendered 100% and let the bargain with go fizzled. That is why, including, America agreeing with Abbas that Palestine solution a separate state.

    If West can help Tamils, Tamils should be able to do something for them in Lankawe. With the coming election, Tamils influencing the EP or parliament election will be gone. Knowing that West has started to wash of their hands with TNA.

    Anthony came here looking for fun when he heard Deal is going to be removed. But so far it is anything but not fun. I do not mean it is a sober drama either. I mean dismissal of deal is just only a drama filled with dullness. One of the biggest ministers has been forced out of the cabinet. There is only Doldrums remaining. My talk is not primarily what is going on today or yesterday. My look is mainly at what would happen tomorrow. If one turn back a little bit and look at DS-SWRD or Karunanidhi-MGR, the memories are filled with thrill.

    Deal had been an influential, strong minister. Few believed he can be sacked. It was said Ranil is protecting Old Royal, especially Old Brother prince, only to protect him from Kandy Ayatollahs and the hard core Sinhala Buddhist. But in the past Deal had done that may fold well than better than Ranil. Nobody had any confidence in UNP’s rank and file no-confidence motion. It was predicted that Joint Comedy Club would puff it off if it come to Parliament. So it was nibbled on the bud. It was thought Old Royal wanted him inside the UNP because he had been their perfect mole. Even before the drama folded full, SLFP ministers begged him not to go to Joint Comedy Club, but to come with them, if he resigns. Yahapalanaya justifies, TNA kept its mouth all the ways shut fearing commenting on Deal’s affairs may rob their already killed secret solution. Gnanam, Mangalam like the ones hailed Deal as one of their own in arming and guarding the Buddhism. When the anti-Muslim agitation was high during last year, Deal talked to Gnanam and made to remain merged under surface for some more time.

    Muslims’ protest on Deal’s anti-Muslim stands did not go very great in this Muslim-Sinhala coalition government.

    Until now Deal had not shown any weakness or relents in his iron fisted hand deals. When he was asked explain his actions, he refused to comply. When he was told to resign, he refused. When his removal was submitted, New King got terrified to act on that. These all had let a feeling to CT readers expecting more on this removal, not this hazy-dull-spice-less day. So far I have not seen in News one public organized protest on the road or meeting or rally for removal of Deal. Does one remember Ponny’s presidential election days? Even Colombo Roads were closed.

    Yes, there were some mild resistance by Deal himself was visible. But that is expectable. One cannot expect a strong, rebellious minister like Deal to pack and leave promptly when ordered to bugger off from the place. But it does not seem to be there were much different than that have happened at the Ministry, when the video of the departure rolls out in news media.

    When Deal showed off his hands and got into the car and drove into a futureless future, I remembered only one old Philosophical song of Seerkhazi:
    Aadi Adangum Vaazhkaiyada
    Aaradi Nilame Sonthamadaa

    (Sway and swing Thy life
    All over so many places
    Only in a six feet casket
    Where it finally sleeps to rest)

    This double faced, crooked, corrupt, double dealing, double crossing scoundrel, the so called double doctor Wijedasa Rajapakse, the Medamulana mole, the notorious Trojan horse within the government is removed from his double ministerial posts. What a great relief to the country.
