I Should Be Sri Lanka’s Leader Not Provincial Chief Minister: Sajith

Former UNP Deputy Leader Sajith Premadasa has hit back against attempts to make him contest the forthcoming Southern Provincial Council elections as the Party’s Chief Ministerial candidate, charging that “political eunuchs” within the UNP were attempting to relegate him to a provincial role.

Sajith Premadasa

“UNPers want me to be leader of this country, not Chief Minister of the South,” a suddenly outspoken Premadasa said yesterday, condemning those he called political has-beens and “eunuchs” for attempting to thrust him into a provincial poll battle in the Rajapaksa heartland.

“These bankrupt politicians who are looking longingly to the day when they can join forces with Chandrika Kumaratunga and wrest control of the SLFP once again are attempting to get me to contest a provincial election,” Premadasa said at a meeting yesterday.

“I would like to tell these ‘Website politicians’ and conspirators to at least now stop sabotaging the UNP,” he charged.

In the same breath, Premadasa also refers to the ruling Rajapaksa regime as “Rajapaksa Mahatturu”, a remark that has angered several UNP members.

The UNP’s Matara Working Committee passed a resolution recently, calling on Premadasa to contest as the party’s Chief Ministerial Candidate in the south to up the ante against the ruling regime. Premadasa has come out strongly against the call he says is being spearheaded by former SLFP strongman and current UNP Communications Director and MP, Mangala Samaraweera.

UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake speaking at a news conference today said there was nothing wrong with contesting as a Chief ministerial candidate and recalled that President Chandrika Kumaratunga had also commenced her road to the presidency as Chief Minister of the Western Province.

“It is nothing to scoff at and a good launch pad for greater political office,” Attanayake said.

Since the UNP’s devastating defeat in the provincial elections held on 21 September Premadasa has openly demanded the party leadership. Premadasa’s sudden outbursts come as UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe has been thrust into yet another leadership crisis and speculation abounds that he may even step down.

Several UNP members have criticised Premadasa’s demands to take over the party reins, saying he has never been a team player or shown himself willing to accept a challenge on behalf of the party. “This rejection of the Southern Chief Ministerial contest is quite similar,” one UNP member said on grounds of anonymity. “In this instance also Sajith is showing himself unwilling to step up to the challenge. He wants to be President but he is not sure of winning a Chief Ministerial contest, that is a fact,” the member said.

      Sajith Premadasa is a brain dead moron whose only qualification is that he is son of Ranasinghe Premadasa. He is also a RACIST and it is sad indeed the shameless Ranil will have to hand over the sinking UNP to this fool, since he has got rid of most of the intelligent folk in the party.
      Rosy Senanayake presents a SMART option to lead the dead UNP in need of a charismatic figure to head the party.
      In any case either Rosy or CBK will be the ONLY viable Joint opposition candidate given the mess in the opposition..

          Then, he is an economist of world calibre,

          But we believe, who They canot do studies and pass exams in Sri Lanka go to UK and pay money to pass exam and get Degrees easily.
          So better to give him the custodianship of the Central bank and finance ministry.
          He knows how to throw money to Temples[ we don’t know who’s money] and get shout on propaganda meetings, like his father.
          No difference to Ranil.

            I only gave you a clue that Sajith is educated in a way that you guys measure it. As for me, I couldn’t careless about qualifications. What matters for me is one’s ability to get a job done. In that, I give full marks to Premadasa Sn. Sajith is is yet to get the job he is after. Let’s see how your Wiggi does his job without a wig, eh.

              in the benches and court rooms,
              but we are sure that this guy Sajith will get caught to Taters.
              as now the political arena is full of Crooks, Thugs, Rapists, kudu dealers and killers.
              And further more, speculations are there that, he is also not a good person.
              as you say;
              “What matters for me is one’s ability to get a job done. I give full marks to Premadasa Sn”.
              premadasa Sr did that by Hook or crook.
              So Is the Rajapassa and Clan doing now.

              I will not give any marks to both parties as they are against all principals and Political Ethics .
              Manipulating As like their Own Dowry and property.

      This guy “Sajith” obviously belives Sri Lanka’s Presidency is his rightful inheritance.

      Who can blame the guy?

      Many other highly corrupt, idiots have managed sneaking into high places. By merely being somebody’s son, daughter, nephew or even niece.

      Dumb and stupid Sri Lankan voters are partly responsible for this “I should be Sri Lanka’s leader” syndrome.

      “Gilmart Democracy” practiced by both SLFP & UNP is a useful tool too. In promoting corrupt family members into high political offices in Sri Lanka.

              Pre-historic human skeleton discovered in Sri Lanka
              Mon, Jun 18, 2012, 12:23 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

              Jun 18, Colombo: Archaeology Department of Sri Lanka has found a skeleton of a pre-historic man from the Fa-Hien cave archaeological site in Pahiyangala of Kalutara district.

              The skeleton is believed to be about 12,000 years old and belonged to the Homo sapiens species known as Balangoda Man.

              Director General of the Archaeological Department Dr. Senarath Dissanayaka has said that a full skeleton of the Balangoda Man was found during excavations of the Fa-Hien cave. This is the first time a complete skeleton of a pre-historic human was discovered, according to the official.

              Several other remains belonging to an older era have been found earlier from the site. These include two pre-historic human skulls that are about 37,000 years old.

              The cave has been known for late Pleistocene human skeletal remains discovered in the 1960s and 1980s.

          It is time an openly Sinhalese hating, Tamil bigot had a fair shot at Sri Lanka’s Presidency too.

          I promise it won’t make any difference.

    Sagith P is one individual who has sabotaged the UNP and Ranil’s leadaership.As much as his father formed Citizen Front with Gamini Fonseka and undermined JR sagith thinks he is predestined to be the President of the country simply because he polls the highest in the Hambantota District which returns a hand full of elected representatives and he is the sole candidate with a name recognition.If he intends to be the leader of the party and the nation some day he needs to follow the present leader and support him unconditionally.

      His sense of entitlement is nauseating. Yet he is a crowd puller. Speaks volumes about the electorate though. Back in the day with limited media exposure the electorate seemed to be more informed. Politicians formed movements and organizations to cause social change. Now, all politicians need to today, is sing on stage. There is no hope for SL until the people review the reasons they vote for politicians.

            Proper dietary habits lead to a healthy life: Veddah Chief

            MONDAY, 26 AUGUST 2013 20:15

            Veddah Chief Uruvarigelage Vanniyale Ettho said one must be cautious of his dietary habits and be a nature lover to live a healthy life. He said a recent survey conducted by the western and indigenous medical specialists had found that no-one in the Veddah community suffered from renal diseases or diabetes although many others in the Redeemaliyedda division were victims of such ailments.

            He said people of Dambana, Henagigala, Ratugala, Pollabedda Veddah communities were subject to medical examinations and they were not suffering from diabetes, high blood pressure or renal ailments.

            “The doctors inquired of me why the people in my community were healthy. I explained to them that we lived with the nature from our childhood and depended on forest resources. “One must be cautious against the evils of dietary habits if one wants to live a healthy life. Many food stuffs sold in the market are detrimental to health. It is better to prevent illnesses than seeking treatment,” He said. (Palitha Ariyawansa)

    Anura B conducted himself at the latter stages as if the country owed him a favour by appointing him PM. Mahinda R would have none of it for
    his old friend – not even the post of Foreign Minister Anura and his sisters pleaded on his behalf. Utterly disappointed Anura went to his premature death with bottle in hand.

    President Premadasa found him questioned and blocked on his way to be PM and later as President – by his own colleagues. But RP, with able assistance from his friend Maru Sira and, later the ambitious Ranjan W, had his way to remain in power until he met his violent death. RP
    met opposition from many quarters within the government, Ministers, MPs and even from the rank and file in the Party. Caste clearly was one such factor. The distasteful behaviour of his wife, her plebeian origin and allegations of losses of paintings and furniture from Temple Trees and the Presidential House made things more complicated.

    In the circumstances, the Party or the country is unlikely to have an appetite to have another Premadasa at the helm. Besides, Sajith has proven over the years he cannot handle feuding factions around him – a necessary qualification for leadership.

    Sajith was my one time class mate at Royal and I feel sorry for him.For some reason he has been sidelined by the party hierarchy and for the reasons unknown, many in the party seem to prefer RW more than him surprisingly.He need to look into these issues and before embarking to presidency winning a chief ministerial post will give him the necessary experience to rule the country.He must remember the fact that his father(Who was a controversial leader also)was the president may not be an automatic qualification for him the become the leader of the country.If he shows neccesary skills and maturity people will push him to the top for sure.I doubt whether he has been able to prove himself yet .I hope he wont follow the pursuits of late anura bandaranaike trying for a autopilot ride.Its hard work mate.After all when the leader is playing hell we are at the suffering end and that has been the case for a long period of time sadly.

    Any political decision anywhere in the world, however much trivial in the global scale,depends on which positions the parties and the individuals concerned take on US’s new foreign policy shift “pivot” to Asia. The Obama administration initiated this shift, a shift in strategy aimed at bolstering the United States’ defense ties with countries throughout the region and expanding the U.S. military and political presence in Asia.

    Ranil Wickramasinghe, courageously and rightly so has been a liberal democratic politicians and a friend of enlightened west for a very long period. His strength lies in that relationship with the west and he should be proud of it. The reason UNP is not winning elections right now relates to backward Sinhalese Buddhist ideologues are in the hands of Rajapakse whereas enlightened liberals such as Dr Sara, Bahu, Sirithunga, Ravi K, Mangala S,Daya Gamage, Tissa A are with Ranil. Ranil is a principled man.He understands that only the enlightened western advanced countries could help a backward society like Sri Lanka.

    The political orientation of Sajith and his followers is Sinhalese Buddhist nationalism. If he wants to be the leader of the UNP, he has to openly express allegiance to the enlightened west. We know he is strong anti-communist. But being an ant-communist does not necessarily mean that he/she supports west these days. Sajith has to travel to western democratic countries often and cultivate the bonds and political relationships with the decision makers in those countries. Sajith needs to convince the west that he is a better performer than Ranil in the same game Ranil plays.The decision makers will look after the rest.

    JR had Esmond Wickramasinghe as an adviser.Sajith’s father,Premadasa had Susil Siriwardhana and lots of ex- Trotskyites around him. Ranil has Bahu,Dr Sara, Sirithunga, all the leading human rights lawyers in the country around him.

    Who is around Sajith ?

      I was there when the Senior Premadasa unleashed the SLA on innocent civilians. And I don’t think Sajith Premadasa is presidential material even by the standards of Sinhalese society.

      But you are going nowhere with your claim about Obama administration’s pivot to Asia. The US Govt. will deal with whomever is elected to power to make sure its interests are safeguarded. It doesn’t have any particular love for RW. SL elections aren’t decided by what the US thinks. RW should step aside and let the UNP find a new leader who can win, but he can make a demand within the party that he be appointed to at least the foreign minister position if and when the UNP controls parliament.

        US administration has not been able to make sure its interests are protected by dealing with Rajapaksa regime. US’s interests in the region are pursued through their pivot to Asia policy. That is why it’s important to unseat Rajapaksa ASAP. Sinhala people must understand that only the advanced capitalist countries could help them and not the Stalinist dictatorships.it is no secret that Rajapaksa is also close to the Iranian mullahs which has also angered the US.

HIS CLAIM THAT PEOPLE WANT HIM TO BE THE LEADER OF THE COUNTRY IS EQUALLY IMPRUDENT WHEN HE COULD NOT MUSTER SUFFICIENT VOTES EVEN IN HIS OWN ELECTORATE IN THE RECENT PAST.IF HE IS SERIOUS, IT IS NOTHING BUT RIGHT THAT HE PROVES HIMSELF BY COMING FORWARD AS CM OF SOUTHERN PROVINCE WHEN ELECTIONS ARE CALLED.

    Sajit,

    I think you have a good chance of winning that election and reinstating UNP rule in the Matara district. Once you have achieved that goal you may had over the Chief Ministership to another person and take on the role of leading the UNP to victory in the General Elections.

    Keselwatta kid has no place there.

    Sinhalala vellalas will never accept him although his dad manged to hold them in rein for a short while.

    Non Vellalas in the Sinhala community do not vote for the UNP, after Nanthikadal.

    Even some Vellalas seem to be changing their mind going by the diminishing vote base in the latest Elections.

    Your father became the President of Sri Lanka by his begining at Sirikotha as a cleaner and with hard work even though he tried underhand work against JR but with lot of patients. You think that just because your father was the President you are qualified to be the next President of this country. You are the cause of all the internal problems within the UNP. You are not suitable even to clean Sirikotha. I hope Ranil will have the sense to chase you out to the MR camp. You are ccarrying out MR’s agenda. Didn’t your mother go to MR and requested him to take you in to his party and he promised to get you the leadership of the UNP. No respectable UNPer will vote for you. Please understand that and go serve your mentor MR. People in this country can remember what your father did with Sothi Upali and the crowd. You are a man who is unable to atleast win Hambanthota. So how can you with Presidential elections

      Where have you learned that crap dear. Premadasa Sn. was never a cleaner at Sirikotha. Beware of old skeletons. To say the least, Ranil’s ex right hand man child rapist Gonawala Sunil was a worse IRC than Sothi.

    I think Sajith has some qualifications to be a Future President in Sri Lanka. But he has to wait until Grand Son of (Na)Mal Baby’s term is over.

    If UNP wants to come to the power they need to change and change the strategy. In Sri Lankan politics what change will make a political party to win the opponent. Simply, start campaign against Provincial Councils and against TNA. Start propaganda against SLFP saying that SLFP had secret agreement with TNA CM Wigneswaran and Sampanthan to grant land and police powers after the election and merge Northern Province and Eastern Province. You promise that we will dissolve Provincial Councils and get rid of 13th amendment. Join hands with Sinhala urumaya, Champika, JVP and BBS promising ministerial posts.

    This is what UNP has to do?

    Hon. Premadasa. You need experience to become Leader of the Country. You need a proven track record. Contest the election of the Southern Province. You can give your terms for doing so. You can insist that you are reinstated in the Leadership of the Party.

    Sajith is a man in indecent haste!

    It would appear that RW’s attitude towards Sajith is purely because of this. Being the son of an ex-President does not give one an automatic God-given right to leadership.

    One has to earn it with honest dedication and service to the community, not by outward show with ulterior motives.

    Owing to this perceived power-struggle there has been contributory negligence in strengthening the party at grass-roots.

    Ranil, Sajith and all party seniors are equally responsible for the sorry state of the UNP.

    They have to stop squabbling and engaging in subterranean destabilization of each other, and begin deep soul-searching and immediately initiate a viable strategy to resuscitate the party.

    Otherwise MR & co will continue roughshod till eternity!

      “Being the son of an ex-President does not give one an automatic God-given right to leadership.”

      Don’t forget Dudley Senanayaka, Mrs Banda. Chndrika, Uncle’s nephew, ………. and political brat is lined up for future presidency.

          “Can I propose this native vedda for the leadership of the UNP.”

          We keep losing our land to the thieves of this island. The only thing that matters to us now is our integrity.

          You thieves now want to rob our integrity as well. Your cunning plan will not work.

            Dear Native,

            Your mate Mr Sengutuan’s relos in Krish group are the latest to “rob” your land but paying the Govt an astronomical load of LKRs.

            Why would his people pay so much for land he bags as the land run by Dregs?.

            And his Eelaam PM has put a sort of a feeler to the Govt through the Canadian chapter,drafted TNA Manifesto, to allow Diasorians to travel freely to the same land.

            Krish are working OT to find the deposit.

            Just imagine what the cashed up Diaspora can do to your Land?.

            If we ask all other people to go allowing Vedda people to live in this country. Definitely you also will have to leave my friend.

          Native Veddah, any day, will be leagues away as a quality leader
          from most of these dregs of society – masquerading as our “political leaders” They are more incruable ledas. Look at his wit, humour and the quality of English. Compare this with a PM who is a street rabble-rouser – involved with all
          the devilry of HR Rights against Tamils in Matale in 1977 and 1983. There was a previous one – caught red-handed human-smuggling by the Japanese Govt – who kept the crook on a
          Immigration Line for 2 hours to remind him the Japanese Govt has
          no patience or compunction with cheap rogues. If not for his official position he will be still languishing in a Tokyo jail. As someone said in these pages, most of our Cabinet Ministers look like members of kidnap and extortion gangs.

              If it is Sinhala/Buddhist fat as…. definitely the Tamils don’t think of him intelligent. For them all Sinhala/Buddhists are fat as….s, I am told.

              Bando,

              The nouveau riche now with filthy lucre in hand running drugs, extortion, kidnaps, stealing from outside produce from State-owned Plantations by sheer thuggery or loading Invoices in cohorts with the regime – and who have paid 30% more than the real value to move to Kolombo Hatha – discreetly whisper to the Kapuwa in the matter of finding a suitable boy to rattaran duwa, manamalaya should be able to speak the White Man’s language – irrespective whether the Kolla is a fat as..le or not – your language. That is the hypocrisy of the emerging New Buddhist Sinhala rich. In the pre-1950s this was avoided by sending Sinhala children of the middle and upper middle class from the NWP, NCP and so on also to good schools in Jaffna that turned out good English-speaking students. Men like the late senior Minister Maitripala Senanayake, ex-Speaker KB Ratnayake, Minister ELB Hurulle were such eminent products. By the looks of it we may see this again soon – when peace and normalcy returns to the Jaffna District. That is because one of the first priorities of the Tamil Nation will be to restore the ruined level of English education in the country to that of those halcyon days when Tamil and Sinhala students studied together in harmony.

    Mr Sajith Premadasa, you may have lot of hopes to become the head of state of Sri Lanka but I don’t think the people do have any such desire to instal you as a their leader. People have already passed their judgment on you. Best thing you and your old school party leaders can do right now is to hand over the party to a young learned dynamic leader with a vision who can deliver. I believe you are well short of the bench mark set by the people for this purpose.

    Ayioo, Sajith leading SL is like going from the frying pan to the fire. Or as they say in Sinhala, kahina ghani deela, hoto ghani gattha wage (like giving up a woman with a cough in exchange for one with a cold)

    Tissa … who? DID HE EVEN WIN HIS ELECTORATE in the last elections… ?NO, he was included as a national list MP…. He may talk the talk …. but wont walk the walk…..

    UNP needs new blood.. RW is a selfish leader.. I used to admire him as a clean politician…. BUT not anymore… RW was the reason for many UNP’rs to cross over… including Dayasiri….

      Tissa Attanayake has been the unluckiest and most ineffective Secretary of the UNP I can think of. The first who is unable to
      function well in English. The Ranil-Attanayake combine has been a
      kalakanniya team. Like in the case of William Hague of the British
      Conservative Party Ranil must step down. He may make a good Foreign
      Minister. Now that the UNP has no leader acceptable to the fighting
      factions perhaps Malik Samarawickrema can come in as a stop-gap.
      The calm and collected Malik has no serious enemies in the UNP and has been generally nice to all UNPers during Ranil’s days as PM. As to
      a good Secretary one that comes to mind is Dr. Karunasena Kodituwakku, who should have always been given a National List slot.
      He is not a politician with an electorate or given in to the rough and tumble culture of the electoral politics. But he is a good face and a good debater on TV and in the media.

    Sajith should run for the pc election and then earn some respect that he could lead the unp in the future
    he has no team
    he has no vision
    he has no most valuable qualification (iwaseema)
    he has no knowledge about leadership
    only knowledge he has is how to destroy the unp

    sajith, somebody called you a moron.You deserve that.Do you think that because you bribed the Ganayas, that you can win an election? When did you speak in the parliament on any policy matter, when did you speak to the people on any policy matter? Was it not your father who started the White Van Curse?It is much better if you can commite suicide.
