I Was Not In favour Of Impeachment, I’m Saddened By Recent Developments, I will Appoint A Committee – MR

By Colombo Telegraph

An impeachment motion was signed and given to me, I was not in favour of it that time. Now that has been tabled in parliament, the next step is to appoint a committee and obtain a report,  President Mahinda Rajapaksa said today.

Mahinda Rajapaksa

“There is a parliament. However I’m saddened by recent developments, I’m a lawyer by profession. When you look at this issue from that perspective I’m not in favour of undermining the judiciary. If someone has made a mistake then I do not think that should be discussed in public. It need not be made public. I will appoint an independent committee to look in to the PSC report that will be submitted before its implementation. Because I only have to be held accountable to my conscience. At the end of the day I have to be content with the decision I make. Under my instruction I will implement system although it has not been stated in books or law. However I have to be content with the decisions I take.” he further said.

    I DO NOT WANT TO WASTE WORDS ON A DIRTY PARIAH WHO HID BEHIND OTHERS AND TRIED ANTICS.HE HAD NOT THE GUTS TO ACT ON HIS OWN.I DOUBT EVEN THE BIGGEST GONA IN THE COUNTRY WILL BELIEVE ALL THE BULL SHIT HE NOW SAYS.
    THE DEN OF THIEVES POLE VAULTERS AND ALL WILL NOT FART MORE THAN ONCE WITHOUT HIS PERMISSION,

    THOUGH THAT PLACE IS COSTING A MILLION OR MORE PWER DAY THE WHOLE PLACE RUNS ON HIS DICTATS AND HIS SECURITY OFFICER BROTHER IS THE HEAD

    THE MANS TRUE COLOURS THAT IS A SHAMELESS THUG WHO HAS AROUND HIM JOKERS WHO PIMP AND OFFER POOJA FOR SURVIVAL ARE NOOW EXPOSED.

    WHAT THE COUNTRY HAS TO BE SAD IS THAT THIS ALL VITAL SEAT WAS DESECRATED BY HIM AND OTRHERS ON HIS INSTRUCTIONS LIKE AS SOME SAID AN ADAM WHO SPARES NO VILLAGE EVES AND THE DRUMMER BOY WHO IS IN CLOVER AFTER COUGHING FOR HIM.

    MANY ARE THE ORDINARY PEOPLE WHO NOW REALISE THEY WERE TAKEN FOR A RIDE.

    Vijitha Herath clearly spelt out that this 2/3rd is illgotten and does not reflect the will of the people.
    Civil society must petition the SC and get Sarath Silva’s judgement reversed.
    They must with the Bar Association demand the repeal of the 18th amendment and rstoration of the 17th where all appointments will be out of a PRESIDENT.
    If MahaRaja has self respect he must step down as he is well exposed as a dirty liar and opportunist who engaged pariahs to abuse the CJ.Mervin the shit bucket carrier Kudu Raja must be hauled up for his role on the road.
    The man who loves elections must go to the country now.

    His aspiration to be ” KING” and to build a kingdom for himself

    and the medamulana leeches appear to be failing. He is now the

    king of liars , hypocrites, and jokers making Sri Lanka the laughing

    stock of the world.

    The whole lot of the people of the country are treated like asses by these stories. It is time that we realise that we are people at least with some sense of thinking and get out of our slumber and drive away these frauds from our midst.

    Today he has changed his talk

    (Mirror) – President Mahinda Rajapakse stated that he will appoint an independent committee not because he has mistrust in the Parliamentary Select Committee. The president was speaking with the heads of media at Temple Trees today.

    President Rajapakse also stated that he will consider the independent committee after he receives the report of the PSC regarding the impeachment. It is normal practice for the president to appoint a committee to study a report once he receives it and in accordance with that an independent committee will be appointed to inquire into the PSC report.

    So now we are going to have two more committees.

    what a blatent liar Mr president
    you are. Were you asleep or fiddling like Nero.
    Do you realise by your action we will be dismissed from the common wealth as we have not kept to the commonwealth constitution when Impeaching a Chief Justice.
    Why don’t you take action against the ministers who degraded her called her Pissu Gani! You got them to do it for you and you plead not guilty.
    You are scared of what is to follow that’s why this change !
    You are the biggest cheat we have had as a president.

    Get real and take control man don’t let your family members and the political ministers and catchers run riot.

    He is a blatant liar. I am talking about his speech where he said Minuwangoda Pradesheeya Sabha erected the billion Rupee building with its own funds. This rural Minuwangoda Pradesheeya Sabha has no revenue base to collect that much money. They even find it difficult to provide street lights and patching up mud holes in local roads. All these are Basil’s magic money. Did Chartered Accountants believed this story?

    When the Provincial Council Member Lanza’s house was raided for drugs by the government forces,MR himself came all the way to Negombo to visit him.
    When Duminda Silva murdered Bharatha,Gota himself came to Mulleryawa just to take Duminda to Jayawardenepura Hospita.
    Why do rulers get involved in such things? Are we to believe and depend on them?
