I Will Be Ever Grateful To UNP: President

President Maithripala Sirisena participating in a ceremony to mark the 69th anniversary of the UNP at party headquarters “Sirikotha” today said that the sacrifices the UNP made to make him (Sirisena) the President will be etched upon his heart for ever.

MaithripalaWhile thanking the UNP rank and file, President, Sirisena said their support will be remembered with gratitude.

Sirisena went on to say that the new national government formed between the UNP and SLFP had many challenges to face and foremost among them was the one posed by the rebel UPFA faction supporting former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

“Don’t think the enemies are weak as there are pro-Eelam forces on one hand while forces belonging to the last regime are also waiting to sabotage the destiny of the national government,” he said.

Sirisena added that the consensus reached between the hierarchy of both the UNP and the SLFP should now filter to the grass-root level in order to overcome the obstacles.

The President also said that he decided to be the common opposition candidate following meetings with the former President Chandrika Kumaratunga and then opposition leader Ranil Wickremesinghe.

Sirisena said that it was his view that the two parties should govern the country in the next five years.

    President Maithripala Sirisena,

    RE: I Will Be Ever Grateful To UNP: President Sirisena

    Please remember, UNP stands for United National Party, “Eksath Jatika Paksaya”, the only National Party, if you exclude the former LSSP and CP, before they became corrupt.

    “Sirisena added that the consensus reached between the hierarchy of both the UNP and the SLFP should now filter to the grass-root level in order to overcome the obstacles.”

    “Sirisena said that it was his view that the two parties should govern the country in the next five years.”

    Yes, let the enemies pro-Eelam forces and the forces belonging to the last regime. MaRa Regime, wither and die of old age, if they are not caught for all the criminal activities they carried out.

      30-year long war weary nation should not be double hit by a leader like MR.

      But his pro fractions allowed it happening.

      Even today, those men shamelessly come forward to express their nationalistic thoughts as if minorities came from OTHER worlds: If we the sinhalese should enjoy all basic rights, why not the minorities should be made clear to the nation across the country. Then only we can achieve our goals towards the permament peace.

        The Sinhala and Tamil are Paradeshis, Paras in the Land of Native Veddah Aethho. They are Para-Sinhala, Para-Tamils and Para-Muslims and other Paras.

        Both modern DNA studies on the DNA in the Para bodies as well as the Chronicles of the Paras, ecen with lies and imaginations, support this.

        It is up to UPFA ministers to resolve the issue if they want to hold on to their ministerial posts. If they can’t put their UPFA house in order they cannot be part of the government. Let all 96 MPs sit in the opposition. This should force power hungry UPFA ministers to find a solution to their own racist problem.

        They can’t have the cake and eat it.

        UNP can negotiate with TNA and JVP (106 + 16 + 6) get issue by issue support.

        Do you now realize where exactly instability comes from, not from JVP & LTTE terrorists but from with in the established parties.

                Surprisingly though all my teachers have been Tamils and Sinhalese I managed to get a few Distinctions. Does it matter? Distinctions do not make you wise. As you know I am still bit thick.

                How about you?

          MR led world was not open to entire world.

          That was just open to his kith and kin. Today we question what happened to Mr 10% or the one who became latter 50%. Today we question what happened to those thugs always worked for MR thuggish agendas marginalizing UNP young politicians.
          I believe come ahead will be much nice for the nation if only they would and could pass favourable amendments as preached before the election.
          It will not be easy to have the passed with the idiotic nationalist group led by Mahinda Rajapakshe. Either Mahinda should be handed over to hague or his men should be put in jails going through each and every high crime they committed during the last few years.

          I think the combination of Ranil, Maithripala and CBK could not have come at a better time for this country.

          THis President is a wonderful man who will be long remembered as the finest gentleman politician ever to become President; truly a statesman, who relegates MR to the level of a minion.

          The Prime Minister appears a man of great sagacity and a man given to a sense of timing and wisdom. (JUst compare him with our Prime Minister one year ago, and you will appreciate the difference!!!) Sajith Premadasa who was clamouring for months and years to head the UNP must now know, he cannot come anywhere close to Ranil for sheer wisdom, meticulous planning and brilliant timing.

          That said, Sajith needs to reform his thoughts and take on the mantle of an aspiring national leader; not just a Hambantota man who is too busy to attend to party promotional work elsewhere. He needs to know there are many more places outside Hambantota on the Sri Lankan map!

          CBK realizes she made many mistakes but has the breeding and the good sense to assist in an effective way as an elder statesperson.

          Together, this lot will stamp SL on a road previously untraveled by all other leaders who wasted a lot of our time on earth.

          Maithripala appears as a genuine Leader of the Nation, not just a political party. He appears to have the wisdom of a Mandela to rise above narrow partisanship which from JR onwards, no President before was capable of indicating. MaRa Rajapakse was easily the worst of the lot, and the less said of him the better.

        Uncivilized creatures of your nature will have no space to spread nationalistic sentiments anymore. Even in Germany, we still have those who would go radically against asyulum seekers keep coming in, but the ruling coalition has decided them to given a shelter considering that those syrian refugees are really in need.
        Likewise, we should finally see it right that minority folks of the nation are not from anywhere else but born srilankens.

      I think this president is sent by god to save this nation beaten by sinhala and tamil racists. I always hate any kind of extremists.

      Both tamils and sinhalaese have varied kind of nationalists that would never join for a common solution for the long held minority problem of the nation.

      Alone the speech held by current president in the UNP convntion today, sounded that they have already started the journey towards the permaent peace and harmony among the all folks of the nation.

      We the peace loving folks should not allow any radical thought bearers to rise and sabotage the current situation.

      So long those pro peace and harmony groups work helping the others that stay and stagnate with their racial and extremist thoughts, nothign will be easier even if the leaders would work die hard to achieve permament peace.

      I watch lanken TV today very often than few months ago – to get ot nkow why some of us stay still radical with thoughts being aginst ot any kind permament solution for the minority problems of the country. Most feel that Srilanka is only for sinahlese – latter should be changed fully – it should be learnt as SRILANKA is for all srilankens – REGARDLESS of race religion or anything else.

      In the days of MR, we only heard publicly made provocative statements be them MR administration or through other radical movements ran behind the scene (e.g BBS and other movements).
      Today we need to president, PM or any other ministers to learn to think before speaking publicly. They should go in the path of consensual politics by their speeches and then actions. This nation is filled with all hatreds and malice -this we could experience by reading most of the comments added to this and other forums today. Even if a good and kind deed of anyone is being criticised by them for mostly no reasons. That has become familiar to them, since for such a long time, they have not seen anything else had been the case in this society. Conditioned situation. Their perception is far from rational thinking. Their behavoiurs then follow their thinking. Like allowing to be caught by Wimal Weerawanse or Gammanpila the like provoctive charactors. Respective ministries should teach those politicians the harm being made by them if we really want to turn this a better society.

    “There are Pro-Eelam forces”. These forces may exist only so long as the Tamil issues continue to remain unresolved.

    With fear or worry conjured up unrealistically, they need not be unaddressed.

    The President is not grateful to the Tamils who voted to him overwhelmingly and the TNA and C.V.Wigneswaran openly supported and canvassed for him to be the president. Overall the majority of the Sinhalese voted for Rajapaksa. It was because of the overwhelming Tamil Muslim votes that Sirisena won. This position has been repeated over and over again in the social media, yet this character cannot accept it publicly.

      why you think so ?

      Where have prez or PM made such remarks ?

      If not for them, if MR would have been the leader, he would never allow Tamils to lead the opposition. That is for sure. Never forget this country as it is the case in Israel, every second is a pro nationalist thinker. So long their leaders like Wimal Buruwanse, Gonmanpila and MR are free – it will not be easy peace loving majoratoranian folks to raise their head.

      Chankdrika, Ranil, even Prez SIrisena would be more than happy to bring a solution ending long held tamil problems and minority problem of this country. MR and thugs that support them would never allow its happening.
      They are anti western men that would not sleep well because of their paranoic thinking.

        They certainly would be. You must help them by:

        1) defining “Tamil” in the context of a “political solution “. Is it Tamils whose religions are Hindu and Christian only or all Tamil speaking people IRRESPECTIVE OF THEIR RELIGION OR DATE OF ARRIVAL distributed throughout Sri Lanka?

        2) oulining a methodology for satisfying political aspirations of 90% of Tamils as per your definion

        3) if any category is excluded enlightening the Sinhalese as to why it is so.

          Like in Malaysia or on the west where we are based -I got my education in EUrope and was asked to work for them subsequently we finished our degrees. So now we have the same rights as european indigenous would enjoy. SO why cant do the same in sl ? It is because the KUHAKAKAMA our own sinahalya. Right ? Perhaps, there are also such tamils too that would behave like nationlalistic sinahalayas.. they are the stumbling block for any solution.

    The monk in his latest Video says, even a donkey can understand that.

    He is not alone.

    The main UNP Trade Union , the Private Bus Owners association boss Wijeratna is more brutal.

    He wants to know why Ranil agreed to make Nimal Siripala the Minister in charge of Private Buses.

    The title of this article suggests “what a hypocritical person Mr Sirisena is?” Can’t he remember him telling Rajitha Senaratne that he(the president) does not want to die under a UNP government and hence will do everything to stop UNP winning with a huge majority. That is why he mentioned about the Central bank debacle of Ranil during his famous speech.

    Bodhi Sira looks more comfortable among the Elite and the Anglicans nowadays, than the Dalits who elected him for 30 years until 8 Jan 2015.

    All he needs is at least a Safari Suit,because a DB outfit wouldn’t look good on him .

    Going forward Sira might even end up as the Chairman of the UNP and Ranil might propose him.

    Sira perhaps has this in mind looking at his body language and the utterances in praise of Ranil at the 69..

    It might happen sooner than later, if the real SLFP members ditch Sira and his cohorts who are hanging on to Ministerial jobs

    With the opposition to Vellala Sambandan’s Opposition Leader Gig . gathering momentum both in Parliament and outside among the non Vellala inhabitants in the North and the East and the Diaspora , TNA might join the Government and take on a few Cabinet positions , there by giving Ranil a solid majority to govern on his own.

    I think it will be a good outcome ,

    Because the inhabitants will have a clear picture of what the Yahapalanay has done for them and what they enjoyed before. at the next election.

    And they can make their choices accordingly.

    Instead of this bullshit of rearranging the deck chairs and trying to tell the inhabitants that they will have a all new Nation with a all new Culture which is free of Nepotism, Corruption, and Underworld

    As if the current lot are going to metamorphosize in 24 months, which is the shelf life assigned to them by the new Mr Clean Gamaralage Sirisena..

    We’re really grateful you’ve dishonest people as ministers. It reflects the will of our people. They vote for thugs, heroin smugglers, crooks as long as they give us favors. Thank you Ranil and Sirisena Sirs, for appointments you made in gay abandon. We all are gay as in happy to see such a gsy as in happy cabinets full of your favorites.

    Some are clearly personal favorites and others will be able to continue Yahapaalana in gay abandon smuggling heroin in the name of minority representation, others can head south in the name of education in gay as in happy frames of mind or education for that matter. Sirisena sir, we’re grateful for the large cabinet reflecting our society’s educational and IQ levels too. Grateful for vocational training that can lead to a,stopping if thievery from hotel schools of silver ware for instance as done before. I’m grateful that now there will not vocational training thievery as the very honest, ethical cabinet ministers know and are qualified to stop those thieving people. I’ve never seen a better more hibest, intellectual cabinet if absolute honest people m no more hotels and restaurants in Polonnaruwa or no more sand digging. Thank you sir Ranil and Sir President. There’ll be no more corruption and chaurya rajinis. Thank you for representation reflecting our society. Make sure to count the silverware in hotel schools that fall under vocational training.

    “I Will Be Ever Grateful To UNP: President”

    so you showed your gratitude by pinching all the ministries that the UNP deserved and by creating a jumbo cabinet ditching your presidential election promise of only max 30.Don’t start to tell that you are ever grateful to the people who voted for you too.

    someone said to me once that gratitude is a passing cloud.So whenever i help somebody i don’t think whether they will be grateful for the help but whether they need the help or not to make my decision.If we just pass them by without giving a helping hand we too will become like a passing cloud.a relative of mine fell unconscious in a busy london street.It took a long time for a passerby to get help for him.

    That is why as Chairman of the party you prevented UPFA/SLFP led by MR at the elections from winning and allowing UNP to win. And also some two timing SLFP’ers who were supporting you on this project and betraying MR are now given cabinet minister posts. You are a real village baiya who has found new friends and forgotten your roots and are now dancing to the tune of your west European and US handlers led by RW and CBK. You have entered the book of records as the only political leader who has worked for the defeat of his own party. This so called national govt is a farce and is only a way to please your backers at the elections by giving them cabinet posts.
