Speaking at a media briefing this evening, Minister Nanayakkara said he is against so much power and authority being concentrated within the hands of the Rajapaksa family but added that his objection to Rajapaksa family bandism alone is not good enough reason for him to quit the coalition government.

He also said that has not and will never allow anyone in the Rajapaksa family to interfere with his Ministry.

“I will ensure that I put them in their rightful places, the day they attempt to make such interference,” he added.

The Minister also said that he does not believe the people should cast their vote to Mahinda Rajapaksa out of obligation, but added that he strongly believes that no leader except Mahinda Rajapaksa an abolish the Executive Presidency and implement the required constitutional amendments.

He added that it is that belief that drives him and his party to remain within the UPFA coalition.

      Gaje@,

      I have no doubt this man Vasu is tied with a filled file as he cant leave the UPFA. Do we all know – even recently one of his nieces was posted to a Diplomatic vacancy irrespective of the numbers of properly qualified candidates are in the line.

      This man Vasu is the second laughter mate next to Azwer. Now with Azwers absence in the parliament, he can replace the charactor.
      It is really sad the way this kind of verysenior men of the nation are set to be paralized while the country/folks need their mediation for a change. For change from the way Rajapakshes loot the country. With the billions they the Rajapakshes grab – they can givea life to the Rajarata people and all other poor masses that struggle for their 3 meals at this critical juncture. I wondered how could I be able to surivve if I permantnetly lived in SL – daily essentials are very expensive as no other times in the past.

      Senior politician like Dr Dahanayake did yeomans service to the nation whenever it was needed, but Vasu to become an another Mervin or Wimalweerawansa is beyond all morals and ethical norms. Country has been caught by thugs.

    Vasu, what a joker you have become ?

    Why would any one want to interfere with a non-entity. You have done Jack as ” Minister of National Languages and Social Integration”. You are disgrace. Hang on tight because no one will want you. And you have no one else to latch to – because you have sold out 100%.

    So with your buddies do down that tube – this is the end of you political carrier. Bye Bye now.

    Vasu, at your age and experience and political maturity, act with some self respect and dignity. Your stance is poor example of what is right and wrong to the children of our country. Lets face it! you just can give up a position even in a sinking ship.

    Look at old Vasu’s threat to Rajapaksas….

    And our Elite, Anglicans and the Intelligentsia are running around calling him Atilla the Hun from Kuveni Land.

    And telling the whole wide world that anyone going against Rajapaksa is dead meat…

    Vasu really should give a hand to his BIL. who is the one who seem to need some muscle power..

    Mr Elders tell me he got chased away from the chair by a LTTE follower , one Sivagilingam.. And he is only PS Minister.

    And poor Dalit Deva had to carry on the meeting which was supposed to help development of Dalit lands in the North..

    Vasu must also consider helping the TNA and its sort of frightened and besieged leader Sambandan.

    I mean as a Vellala’s BIL, he is duty bound to help the fellow Vellaslas , like the Jewish people do in Diaspora Lands.

    I mean Sambandan worked hard for five years to create this opportunity for the UNP Leader Ranil to grab the Presidency.

    And look at what has happened to supposed to be big ticket coalition of the UNP, TNA Diaspora Alliance .

    Now the hired CC says he didn’t sign any pacts with the Vellalas.

    Neither did he sign an IoU with Ranil to make him the Exec PM , which the TNA , Diaspora and the West were yearning for and funded big time,

    And add insult to Vellalas injury , CC Sira says Sambandan can go to the Election which he is calling on the 18th April.

    And sort out his demands for TNA Police , Lnad Banks and anything else…

    And Sira as Prez is not going to go anywhere…

    id Sambandan waste 5 years for nothing..

    CC Sira is no Fonseka for sure…

    Wonder whether Sira still calls Ranil Sir. !!!!.

      Since you pretend to be well wisher of Dalits like Douglas the proper thing for you to do is to join EPDP and become its key policy maker and strategists.

      You will be given round the clock protection by Douglas’s attack dogs. Go to Jaffna vellala land, transform it into a land of Dalit, contest NPC elections become a first dalit (a proud Southerner and a Sinhalese) chief minister of NPC, ….. enrich yourself out of people’s misery, …… have freshly tapped toddy every morning, afternoon and evenings and then abuse the dalits.

      Being a hypocrite will make you a Vellala.

    check these facts out ,

    Vasidewa is a unique politician and certainly a very rare creature ,

    1)His partner (Nimalka)is a human right defender and openly very critical about MR and wants hi out.
    2)Brother Hemakumara is a vociferous critic of MR and openly campaigning to ouster him.
    3)His daughter is married to CW’s son and Wigeshwaran doesn’t want MR to continue any further.
    4)in 1990 , This low life creature went to Geneva along with MR to protect Sri lankan democracy , not only that he was one of those people who pioneered in creating the slogan ” abolish the executive presidency immediately “
    5)Today he is hiding behind a useless ministry post and trying to defend MR and the Executive presidency .

    it’s high time Vasudewa to change his name to Vasidewa.

      If presidency not abolished in his lifetime Vasu to Commit suicide

      By Kavindya Thomas

      Minister of National Languages and Social Integration, Vasudeva Nanayakkara stated he will take his own life, if the executive presidential system was not abolished during his lifetime.The statement was made at a media briefing held in Colombo yesterday (10).

      During the briefing, he said the abolishment of the executive presidential system was essential and the executive powers should be bestowed upon the Parliament as a whole, since that was where the democratically elected representatives were in action.
      The Democratic Left Front (DLF), General Secretary issued a ‘people-friendly’ public proposal of action for the government, to be put into action during a five-year period from 2015-2020. This proposal addressed several issues such as the abolishment of the executive presidency, a change in the electoral system as well as the introduction of an amicable tariff system. According to party members, the proposal was issued in order to strengthen the developmental approach this government had adopted back in 2005, when it came to power.

      Furthermore, the minister said he was completely against nepotism and believed in the decentralization of power and authority.
      “From 1977- 2005, the governing system was influenced by western reforms. But that changed when Mahinda Rajapaksa came to power in 2005. From 2005-2014, the governing system changed completely. What is happening currently is a struggle between these two forces,”, the minister said.

      http://www.ceylontoday.lk/

      This man used to campaign against Bonapartism of JR/Premadasa era and has joined MR/GR as a Bonapartist himself.

      Now he says he would commit suicide if executive presidency is not removed in his life time.

      How long he is going to live?

      Does he know when exactly he is going to die of natural causes?

      A Tamil codger told me that Douglas once told few people that he didn’t have any alternative but commit suicide if he didn’t win more rights for Tamils.

      The same codger wondered VP’s determination to deliver Tamil Eelam.

      The problem with VP, Douglas and Vasu is that they didn’t publish the date.

    Vasidewa, it is the last chance to keep the back up vehicle and free petrol coupons. Even if you join opposition will not gain anything since you dont have a vote base. Please keep talking non sense and retire and go. One advise, if you retire now the people would remember you even after your death as a polictian, if you stick with MR. people would remember you as a selfish, boneless lackys…

    In tamil ” kilinchuthu poo”. No body can stop srilanka from becoming like affrica. Affricans are living in uk for cenceries but still other communitiesma including srilankans do not want to interact with them – they will never change.Now some one have to rescue srilank and srilankans- may be Mithiri & co.-lets ellect them and see.One thing is sure , if Mithri abolish ER , establish independant judisary, reduce stupid big army for a tiny country,retake all the land to foreigners, etc , then the rest can be rectified slowly. Hope for a prosperous srilanka.

      what do you expect from a man who behaves like a dog keeping his tail between legs at the time Vasidewa`s partner was seeking for help. If the man treats the partner in that way, do we need even wasting time asking anytrhing from this creature ?
      These senior men are the ones who sharpends the swode of MR. Even today they continue to do so is agoneous. I hate these men.

    Vasu, There is only one National Language now – SINHALA and there is no Social integration. Apparently you are doing your job well as per Rajapaksa Design, hence they will not interfere in your so called ministry. Pity… your partner has more balls than you!!

    This man is an “insult” to the whole of the working class and especially the Southerners. I wish he reads this comment.

    I remember him from his school days because he hails from my village called “Metarmba” in Unawatuna, Galle. He belonged to a wealthy family of businessmen. His family was then, one of the few who owned a car – that also an “Opel Recard”. While all his siblings traveled in that car in the morning to school, this lad (then) named Vasudeva Nanayakkara walked with us, bare footed to the Unawatuna Railway Station to travel to Galle. He, from those school days was a “revolutionist” in true sense of the word.After his school career, he actively engaged in politics with Dr. N.M.Perera and continued as an illustrious, strong “Leftist” who campaigned and worked towards uplifting the down trodden.

    Today in his last lapse of life says: ” I too oppose Rajapakse Family Bandism, but it isn’t a reason to quit”. A man who even “revolted” against his family’s “Bandism” as belonging to a “wealthy” in our village, makes the above statement. What a FRAUD he is today? Better to leave him alone and think that “Vasudeva” who lived in Metarmbe, Unawatuna, Galle passed away long time ago. Amen.

      Sad to read. Yet, it is the way most leftists in SL lived and died. NM, Colvin, Pieter, Bernard in their old age were lured by office. Now Vasudeva is the one left, the living dead. We take comfort from the lives of Edmund Samarakoddy and Bala Tampoe.
