“I Will Use The Sword As And When Necessary” – Sirisena

President Maithripala Sirisena said that he would not hesitate to use the sword on friend or relations, regardless of distinctions such as political loyalty or color.

Maithripala Sirisena

He added that he would use his sword on anyone ‘for a clean and pure political movement,’ and for the betterment of the nation and the ‘jathiya’.

He made this assertion at the launch of ‘Nidahase Sammuthiya (Covenant on Freedom),’ the policy statement of a coalition of 31 unnamed political parties contesting under the ‘United People’s Freedom Alliance,’ at the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall today (December 28).

President Sirisena did not mention any names following this bold pledge to slay those who are opposed to his notions of what is good and wholesome. As Colombo Telegraph has reported, the President has been accused on numerous occasions of feeding nepotism and corruption instead of eliminating these as promised in his presidential election campaign. He took his son Daham to the United Nations as part of the Sri Lankan delegation, for example, while Minister Sujeewa Senasinghe has questioned why the President has not appointed a commission regarding his daugher’s PR agency being given contracts to handle the governments PR work.

According to a statement released by the Presidential Media Unit, the President had expressed the need to groom a new set of honest and straight politicians through the forthcoming local government elections who love the country and would not bow down to bribery, corruption and wastage.

The President also said that it is hard to create a new political culture ‘at the top’ and therefore it has to be done ‘at the bottom’

      These are just words,

      If he would have used it immediately he got elected, Rajapakshe would have been in prisons by today.

      People would then have got it, how criminals Rajapakshes and their henchmen have been.

      You as a President no guts to show how much Rajapakshe looted from tax payers funds.

      I am now very annoyed by your kind of statements, just because some decisions made by UNPrs caused Bank Scam; but bank scam is not the only big scandal you have before you.
      Hundreds of billions that Rajapakshes looted should be made clear LET alone today.
      Just to protect your party, to keep everything in your secrets, cant help anyone…

      Hoh hoh ho…… Mr. President, did you really say that it was hard to create a new political culture from the top, therefore it has to be done from the bottom??? I am having a hearty laugh. This statement includes your own self, right? Go home, Mr. President. You have the power to remove the most corrupt top brass in the government. Don’t bother about the bottom.
      .
      If you think you can end corruption and fraud at the lowest level, you are mistaken. The top most politicians in the government should be role models to their own subordinates first then to their partymen and then to the general public. People look upto leaders. Actually, things are different now. People don’t look upto present leaders anymore. First of all, the present politician lot who are the products of the corrupt and rotten old political culture should be sent home wholesale and a new set of people should be elected to represent the new political culture.

      If President Srisena is honest in his words he should immediately take action against former President Mahinda Rajapakse and his family because they are the main threat for clean and political movement. Can he do that?

        If the President is really honest he should first tell the people whether he was Deaf, Dumb and Blind when he was part of the last government. He was a high ranking minister for crying out loud.

        If Sobitha Thero did not approach him would he have quit the corrupt govt?

          Dear Burt,

          I’m sure that Maithri had no choice at that time but to be Deaf, Dumb, Blind and Mute. Nor do I hold it against him that he was in charge of the Defence Ministry when the “Humanitarian Operation” (yes, I saw it so described – seriously – even today) ended amidst some controversy in May 2019.

          In that respect, we can still be happy. We would have been murdered for saying some of the things that we do now. However, he ought not to be so timid now.

          I hope that before the 10th Feb 2018, he surprises us again with a major speech in which he states clearly that he’s totally retiring from politics in 2020. He will then go down in the annals of History as a somewhat decent man, and I guess some of us may even vote for his candidates.

          As it is, we may even have to vote for the JVP.

            Please pardon my mistake: the War ended with the death of Prabhakaran on May 19th, 2009 – I find that I have placed it ten years ahead, in May 2019!

            I remember the month because my younger daughter got married on Saturday, the 30th May, 2009. About three months later, a policeman called on me, and wanted to record a statement by me. This he told me was because they had received a 119 telephone call saying that a gay wedding was held in the hotel where the wedding was held, and my name was down in the records as the father of the bride. Was it a gay wedding?

            I told the rather nervous cop that it was difficult for me to give a definitive answer. One person was supposed to be my daughter. I could say with certainty that she was a girl when born in 1979. I’ve read of sex changes, but I didn’t THINK that she had undergone any such change.

            The person she married was taller than her, in fact considerably taller, but I had not inspected him/her carefully enough to be quite sure. To the best of my knowledge the guy is a man. Supporting that belief of mine is that they now have two chilren – and I clearly saw each time that it was my daughter who was pregnant.

            I said all this very seriously, but the cop realised that I was taking his inquiry in good humour. He thanked me and said that there had been some sixty weddings in that hotel that month. They’d inquired from about thirty up to then, and had almost got assaulted by some. It was a relief for them to encounter a parent like me.

            Now, the fact it is that my daughter had meticulously planned her wedding 15 months ahead, and reserved one of the three sections of that well-known hotel where receptions could be held, and collected the money herself.

        My3 following his election for the Presidential post on 8th January 2015, before even taking oath of office when replying to a journalist said clearly that he would not take revenge against Mahinda Rajapakse.
        He is keeping his promise as he believes that ex-president MaRa will never ever pose a threat to him and therefore is out of jail because the aapa that he ate is undigested in his stomach and is making him keep that promise.

      What he meant by sword is “Kaduwa” a Sinhala rural term for broken English. He uses only Sinhala normally and will use Kaduwa as and when necessary especially dealing with foreigners.

        Not exactly, Gnana.

        We won’t get very far with such interpretations.

        Just on this point of usage, “kaduwa” is used to denote the fact that a certain class of people use their command of English to humiliate (and keep down in various other ways as well), those wh do not know what is, for the majority of Sri Lankans, a foreign language.

        If they don’t use that particular criterion to disqualify, the privileged will use another.

        Not worth serious discussion.

        This is bluster on Sirisena’s part – all figurative language is. Our disappointment with Sirisena is real.

      President Sirisena,

      RE: I will use the sword as and when necessary.

      Why not learn from the Veddah in the Drama, Nadagama, Maname, produced by the late Para-Professor Ediriweera Sarathchandra.

      The Veddah use the sword, to chop the head off the Maname Kumaraya, Prince Maname.

      මනමේ නාටකය – වෙන්න කමා වැදි රජිදේ..

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ZaG8iPMeEY

      You can too, and the list of heads to be chopped off are given below. All you need is guts, courage like the Veddah in the Drama Maname.

      1. Mahinda Rajapaksa
      2. Gotabaya Rajapaksa
      3. Basil Rajapaksa
      4. Yoshita Rajapaksa
      5. Wimal Weerawamsa.
      6. Many more…….

      “Whatis Jathiya means?”

      Here is a section of an article which partly explain what Jathiya means:

      To be truly Sri Lankan
      Excerpts:

      The Sinhala word ‘jathiya’, has been rarely used as an exact equivalent of the English word ‘nation’ which, in terms of its modern meaning, refers to all the people living in a country with their own government. Nowadays, however, ‘jathiya’ is occasionally used in the same sense without any ambiguity, for example, in a sentence like: “janadhipathi jathiya amathai” (The President addresses the nation), in which ‘jathiya’ embraces all Sri Lankans as citizens of one country. But ‘jathiya’ usually means ‘race’.
      By Rohana R Wasala
      July 7, 2011
      http://www.island.lk


      President swore on his sword “he would use his sword on anyone ‘for a clean and pure political movement,’ and for the betterment of the nation and the ‘jathiya’.”

      He must be appealing specifically to the crooks and the untouchables in his party as well as UNP.

      He was very angry – p****d off when “the anti-corruption agency took former defense secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa, younger brother of the ex-president, and three ex-navy chiefs ————–to court on corruption charges.”

      “I will have to take action,” he said, if the anti-graft commission and two police corruption divisions were “working according to a political agenda,” he told military officials. ————–

        NV mate one should brush up on her Sanskrit and Pali and may be Latin too if one must define Nation and Jathiya. Latter’s origin is from the Sanskrit word Jathi, meaning Birth (Jathi Jara Marana, for us mate the first is done, second is in process, and the third. well who knows, any time).
        On the other hand Nation also derives from the Latin for Place of Origin.
        So the question is what MS is going to polish his Kaduwa for, to protect his place of birth? Against whom?

          Thank you for your typing.
          However let me remind you of a phrase from Alexander Pope’s poem ” A little learning is a dangerous thing”.

          In the mean time I refer you to a paper titled “The Making and Proliferation of Jati: A Historical Inquiry” published by the eminent scholar prof Rajan Gurukal in 2015.

          You should look at the process by which “jayate asmin iti” (that which one is born in ) Jati has come to represent many things to many people.

          Do you really understand what Sirisena meant by ‘jathiya’?

        There was no Malayalam when the so called Sinhalese ethnicity was formed or they were still a form of Tamils , speaking a low Tamil or Kodun Thamizh dialect. Therefore the Jadiya is composed of Tamils Bengali and Veddha . This is what their DNA shows. 70% Tamil 25% Bengali and the rest Veddah

        why is castes is called Jathiya in TN? In TN caste conflicts are called Jathi Beda? Why is that? Is not that because there is no ethnicity called Tamil? But several communities like Nadar, Vanniyar, karaiyar, Labby etc etc..speak Tamil. In fact TN is a multi ethnic state where Tamil is simply a langauge

      Please get back to that Saruwa Sunil story. the first comment on it was by me, expressing shock.

      However, that comment of mine got Red-Thumbed-Down as never before for a comment by me. I think that the disapprovals were because I said that I still had some faith in Maithri.

      Later comments wherein I reported that I had checked and found the story, won more approval. Yes, I checked with guys from Matara and Akuressa.

      Some felt that the guy ought to be thrown in to the Nilwala River: plenty of crocodiles in it, but will they have the intelligence to START their feeding on the guys private parts?

      Any opinions on that?

    How can that he (MS) demarcated honest guys from bad ones out this lot?

    The crux of the matter and problem is that right thinking people seek that “clean politician” or “political parties” are at the dilemma of politics HE President?
    Currently is crucial issues facing before majority people having uncertainties of democratic governances?

    I guess he meant ” Jathiya ” to people of all different ” Jathiya ” , Glad he didn’t mention ” Apeh Jathiya “
    as that means he was only stipulating his own people.
    The word he picked meant for all people of SL. that he meant all Nationals of SL.
    Hope my analysis is correct if not its open to clarification.

      Anpu,

      I think that NV has given you a rational explanation, MR is not wrong but inadequate, and Analyst is quite right about what Sirisena meant.

      Sirisena’s talk is all vague here. When politicians speak in Sinhalese of serving the public they refer to how they will serve “rata, jathiya, shaha agama” referring to “country, race and religion”. Used without thinking, and not really meaning to exclude other groupings.

      Of course it is, in effect, chauvinistic, but not consciously so. This is the problem with racism. Those in whom it is ingrained are not even conscious of their shortcoming. Sirisena is a good man who has not here been able to rise above this formulaic use of language.

      The speech as a whole is disappointing, because it indicates that he keeps uttering these words and does nothing. The words don’t matter, but Sirisena’s lack of following up on what he says does. Analyst is quite right – don’t get upset by the words, per se.

      I remain convinced of Sirisena’s basic honesty, but he just lacks the courage to take on the Establishment – which is Sinhalese. Anpu, you are right to be disappointed with Sirisena’s far more specific refusal to prosecute “War Heroes” (politically almost impossible), but also to even inquire impartially in to what happened.

      The question is, “Whom do we put in his place?”


      I guess the JVP, but most people with a middle-class background find it difficult to do so, because of what they have done in the past. Perhaps we ought to overcome that.

    Watch out! You are responsible for bringing the most corrupt politician in the Sri Lanka history into power and let him loot the Central Bank for two years. Therefore, make sure not to swirl this sword of yours around your own head, Mr. President, ok.
    .
    SLFP, UNP, and their mixed breed SLPP, all these three parties have more corrupt politicians than good ones confirmed by their own accusations to each other. Therefore, people should be ready to move forward leaving behind politicians of these parties who are equally responsible for the predicament of our country. Enough of showing mercy to main parties for 7 decades.
    .
    Aren’t we sick of the plethora of promises of these politicians??? Think rationally, think logically and think critically before casting your votes, guys.

I guess you have heard the Sinahala idiom, “Yuddeta Nathi Kaduwa Kos Kapandada?” (What is the purpose of a sword not used for combat? Is it for chopping jak fruits?”)

      Dear Champa,


      I always find one point in your comments with which I HAVE to disagree.

      Never spoil your ballot paper. You will be taken to be an ignorant illiterate fool. We can usually find some eccentric or idealistic guy who stands no chance of winning. If you vote for him/her, it becomes a protest vote.

      The “her” was added as an afterthought – but there you have something constructive to work on. We men have made a mess, and now it is said at least 25% have to be women. I don’t think that there’s anything to prevent an all-woman slate. Why not launch one?

      However, you can be sure that they will not win representation. A few guys like me may vote for them – not one woman will!

      I don’t know why lots of people attack you, Champa. I consisder you a bit of a racist, but I don’t think you a dishonest guy, and so far I have not round you backing the Rajapaksas. So, in my book, you are not a bad guy, although I seem always to find something in your comments to disagree with.

      Could you please substantiate that thing about Maxis of Malaysia? I have actually googled both Axiata and Maxis of Malaysia. Both have Wikipedia entries. Axiata is said to own 82% of Dialog, but nothing about Maxis owning either Telecom or Mobitel.

      Why not an article by you on the subject. Be sure that I will make many comments on it.

    MS is lying through his teeth so he can win this upcoming election by hook or by crook. He has not followed up on any of the promises he has made to the people. So, why would he do anything this time?
    If MS is a believer that the rot starts at the bottom, then we the people of Sri Lanka are in for some serious do-do.
    MS has to have a good showing in this upcoming election. Otherwise, he will be a one and done president, although he promised only one term.

    You failed all those that elected you. We elected you to get rid of Mahinda Corruption and bring Yahapalanaya. You totally failed in this. 3 years after being elected we are yet to see the Avant Garde, (Gota) Malwana land (Basil); Daisy Achi Gems (Yoshitha); CSN and Namal, Wimal Weerawansa (2 passports) and many other cases properly prosecuted. You chased the honest Dilrukshi from Bribery commission. Navy Commander removed after 3 months- Russian war ship. We can go on.

      What had happened on 8 January 2015 was just a regime change, initiated(?) and supported by Hindia and USA. The previous regime had for too long stuck its two fingers in a permanent gesture of “Up your A**e” to those who supported the Sri Lankan entire war effort.

      Did anyone at the time seriously believe the regime change would bring permanent structural change to the state and governments? If anyone did surely he/she was a stupid Sri Lankan. The cosmetic changes that have taken place since 2015 have given people some relief and space. Previously the entire political space was occupied by the clan, probably with the intention of making of a dynasty, a Royal House.

      Yes, Sam Silva, that list of unprosecuted cases is getting longer by the day, and my previously enthusiastic support for Maithri is waning.

    A winning party for Sri lankan voters would a party that do not involve none of these “professional politicians”. Because they have accustomed to lie, win votes and continue the same exploitation, manipulation and leaving the country stranded. Country is getting destroyed day by day. Otherwise, why do you need one and half years more when you know the thieves, when you have appointed those who rejected by people, ordered to evacuate by courts etc. NAtional list is to get corrupt politicians back into the parliament. Why Ranil appointed unqualified foreign to the governor post when so many educated people were in the deputy governors positions. IT is a theft that everybody there knew.

    “For the first time in the history of Elections in the country, a record number of over 70,000 candidates are contesting LG Elections in Feb 2018.”.

    Easiest way to make a truck load of money in the shortest time period with little or no education.

    When will you guys get it? No one looted the Central Bank.

    Stupid voter is taken for a ride with a commission to cover all the other corruptions and incompetence in bringing the thieves and murders of the last govt to justice.

    In other news:

    “Minister D.M. Swaminathan had, following consultations with relevant authorities, paid Rs. 148 mn to Army”

    Land owners deprived of their property for thirty years without compensation and the government pays ransom to Army squatters from funds allocated for rehabilitation.

    GO FIGURE!
    Foreign donors should take note of this when the govt ask help for rehabilitation.

    Ape Jathiya! Ape Aanduwa!

    Sri lanka politicians are excellent at talking about the previous govt’s faults, talk in future tense and about issues. They never talk how all ganged up to screw up the system and how they are all became leeches.

    Mr President

    Why don’t you use the sword to commit ‘hara kiri’? In case you don’t know, it’s the traditional Japanese way of dealing with dishonor. By promoting nepotism, turning a blind eye to corruption & totally going back on your election pledges, you have dishonored your self. In addition, you are totally out of depth as President, lacks leadership, in fact, just a waste of space & a burden to the tax payers of SL.

    Threatening to use a sword is the surest sign of a man under siege. Things are obviously hotting up for Siriisena. He may press the self destruct button soon. Good for the country!

    The promises being made are election promises. Once eletions are over all promises will be handed over to commissions and that will bethe end of the promises made.
    We have heard enough of this BS.
    When will our people realise this. 99% of our Politicians are corrupt.
