Indian PM Narendra Modi Meets Daham Sirisena At UN

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has met Daham Sirisena at the UN Headquarters in New York last night.

President Maithripala Sirisena participated in the 70th Session of the United Nations General Assembly at the UN Headquarters in New York today, accompanied by his son Daham Sirisena who has no official status whatsoever in the Sri Lankan delegation.

When President Sirisena left for New York and when he arrived in New York the Presidential Media portrayed him as a simple man in contrast to his predecessor Mahinda Rajapaksa whose foreign visits were made with a large entourage with the tax payer having to foot enormous bills. These sentiments were echoed by almost all sections of the local media in Sri Lanka. Indeed pictures of him arriving in New York in a disheveled state was hailed as an example of his simplicity.

Sirisena rode to power pledging to eliminate the nepotism and favoritism that marked Rajapaksa reign.

      RE: Indian PM Narendra Modi Meets Daham Sirisena At UN

      “Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has met Daham Sirisena at the UN Headquarters in New York last night.”

      This young man looks like a decent chap. Being chaperoned by his father, he is unlikely to go wild and chase women, unlike the Medamulana Meehataka Namal Rajapaksa.

      Besides he probably does not have a racing car.

      “President Maithripala Sirisena participated in the 70th Session of the United Nations General Assembly at the UN Headquarters in New York today, accompanied by his son Daham Sirisena who has no official status whatsoever in the Sri Lankan delegation.”

      Mrs. Sirisena “Requested” that Mr. Sirisena take her son to make sure he behaves in New York.

      Who can blame a wife for that? Has anybody heard about chaperons?

          “notice all 3 lankans look like the baseball wielding thugs while the Indian is the gentleman clasping his left hand with the right.”

          The Indian clasping his right hand and left hand seem to be counting the number of people he was responsible for killings in Gujarat and other places, for which the USA did not give him Visas, being a criminal.

          He must be thinking, these Sri Lankans, they are Paras in the Land of Native Veddah Aethho. We got into their para wars and we got some our people and a Prime minister got killed. We need to be diplomatic with them, and keep our distance.

          Besides, they are Buddhists, and we know Buddhism tried to destroy Hinduism. What will happen to Hindutava?

          Let’s keep out distance.

            Narendra Modi who rules the largest democracy in the world did not bring his wife or off-spring or bed fellow..

            But Sirisena who does not speak English feels insecure sleeping alone in the posh Ritz Carlton, perhaps?!

            Amarasiri ,

            In every period England was able to fight the right war, against the right enemy, with the right ally, on the right side, at the right time, and call it by a wrong name.

            “USA did not give him Visas, being a criminal.”

            That was a hands tied black president creating precedence with Head of State immunity. Modi lecturing to the Japanese (the undisputed kings of Asia until USA and Europeans foxed them into submission) to carry out war against China. Obama made the idiot understand that China is their protected baby (it’s the American billions to china and Russia that drove the Japanese away.
            In any case what is the big fuss when Diego Garcia nuclear base is the king in that bay? Stupid Lankans always out to be the pirates they are and living in the period when there were no planes but the hora oru.

            What will happen to Hindutava?

            It was created to stop the cultural conversions by Muslims in the first instance and Christians on the other hand. I don’t object to that because they are native and unique while lanka is total display of two legged Sinhalese Buddhist beast. Man is unique to create a civilization which comes from language and human dignity.
            After the colonisers left the Sinhala Buddhist have taken ownership of the people to murder, rob at will- a baldies shape shape society still in their animal state. Its no different from Sana region of muslims its just that the surrounding regions are a bit more civilised and lanka is still a Hippy paradise for Heroin. Remember Opium wars- The stuff was grown at Bengal and transported to Hong Kong by the Iranian people for the English.

              “What will happen to Hindutava? “

              Different times, Same theme. Save Hidutva, Save Brahmin and Caste Hegemony.

              2,500 Years ago it was the enlightened Buddha who tried the reform. Then Jains. Then Sikh, then Muslims, then Christians.

              Why are the Dalits, and other low Caste converting from Hindutva to the other religions? Ask B. R. Ambedkar.

              Any other religion is better than Hinduism, except of course Wahhabism, Salafism,those follow the Iblis, Devil, and Judaism, that is racist.

              https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B._R._Ambedkar

              Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar ([bʱiːmraːw raːmdʑiː aːmbeːɽkər]; 14 April 1891 – 6 December 1956), popularly known as Babasaheb, was an Indian jurist, economist, politician and social reformer who inspired the Modern Buddhist Movement and campaigned against social discrimination against Untouchables (Dalits), women and labour. He was Independent India’s first law minister and the principal architect of the Constitution of India.[4][5][6][7]

              Ambedkar was a prolific student, earning a law degree and various doctorates from Columbia University and the London School of Economics, and gained a reputation as a scholar for his research in law, economics and political science. In his early career he was an economist, professor, and lawyer. His later life was marked by his political activities; he became involved in campaigning and negotiations for India’s independence, publishing journals advocating political rights and social freedom for Dalits, and contributing significantly to the establishment of the state of India. In 1956 he converted to Buddhism, initiating mass conversions of Dalits.[8][9][10][11]

              In 1990, the Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian award, was posthumously conferred upon Ambedkar.[12][13][14][15] Ambedkar’s legacy includes numerous memorials and depictions in popular culture.

            There is protocol from how you shake hands to how you hold them and that differentiates us from the beast as being civilized.

            you seem to be going senile- its like Federica writing about a dog then running to Australia and being refused to join sisters(the thieves of Aus knew) then running to USA for green card. Finally the owner of Leader apologizing.Good business sense.
            Modi is not an army man when the muslims first killed hindus (how did muslims come to India crusaders!Modi had just won the election in a Congress state and was not prepared for this type of war.The articles were written for reuters etc by poor indian journalist to make it as sensational as possible. you don’t need to be a hindu or muslim to know it but in the west we have Gujarati Muslims and Hindus from both Pakistan and India who are clear about what happened even before he was elected – they canvassed for 2 years for him to be PM.

        Really? Why was this bloke exiled to England to study after club rampages and assaults on the beach? Namal never did any of that . Hari hari boru kiyanna epaa lamayo. Yes Namal was pushed and went on so many state funded wasteful trips; I’m ok with adi pudi sons going and Sirisena needs a translator so nothing wrong but don’t accuse Namal baby with false charges. Namal never killed people or assaulted anyone leave alone Namal never assaulted DIG’s sons. Saadu Saadu

      The Sinhalese language and Sinhalese identity only clearly evolved and became a reality around the 9TH 10TH century. None of the anceint kings in the island never identified themselves as Sinhalese or Aryans as they were not. They were largely either Hindu or Buddhist Nagas( the Nagas were Tamil Dravidians). There was no Sinhalese language or people. They were still evolving as a people, largely from the indigenous Tamils and Indian Tamil immigrants and invaders, who converted to Buddhism. So how can there be a 2500 Year old Sinhalese Buddhist culture when there were no Sinhalese kings language or people?

      Did you see Obama or any other head of state taking their kith and kin to a bloody UN general assembly!?

      Sorry Sapumal, this is not OK! Representing the country at any level is a very important and responsible function. It becomes even more important when you represent the country at the UN, particularly at a time when the country is facing many challenges at the UN. We should send professional representation that can add value and weight to the delegation.

      We trivialise the country’s seriousness when we try to make it a family affair. This is not what we voted for. His son going to the UN, his daughter going to the people without any mandate or position. Another daughter has supposedly started an advertising company this year to rake in millions from Gov contracts???

      RW and Chandrika who are stake holders of this administration must put this right. We criticised MR for all this and voted him out of power and today we the same crap happening all over again.

      The difference is the scale of brutality, nepotism and corruption.

    President sirisena cant talk english so he takes the best person he could rely on to summarize and translate to him. As the president he needs soneone close to him to do the job and theres no one better than his son daham. Taking Daham might be wrong in the public eye but try to be in his shoe as a father and the president for a while. All those who says this is wrong where were your mouths and fair thoughts when some huge politicians were shopping and went in private jets and helis and spent enormous amount of money for themselves abroad? This is what happens a game goviyas son elected to be a president. we dont want to give him chance since we are perfect and rajapaksha Namal and shiranthi were so perfect. Nobodies perfect. Give him a break.

      either you are angry or sitting on your brains or both or you are doing pirith.

      Modi is not well versed in the english language either so they both have sworn official translators seated behind taking notes and translating.
      Who better than that? Stupidity, Sinhala Buddhist animal instincts are on display by the family and a gay boy eyeing the bachelor Modi. The Hindians are also laughing at the Sarema.

    Look at the last picture. What a moment for Sri Lanka? This was an “Official Meeting” with our neighbour and who represent us? Where are those “ADVISERS” highly paid and looked after well at the expense of the tax payer? This is a moment to assess and measure the caliber of a “Leader”. Mr. President: Never mind taking your son with you; but why do you have to make these photo opportunities for him. Don’t you have the simple know how to differentiate between “Official” and “Private” matters? Your daughter did it earlier and that got exposed beyond limits. At least you should have corrected yourself; but you don’t seem to learn. Have you ever thought or did it not dawn on you what the rest of the world leaders and other professionals would be thinking of this type of “show”? Hope you will not appoint him to the vacant position of “Monitor” of Foreign Affairs. Mr. Managala Samaraweera would love it. Do that too please.

    Please keep all of them out of sight from your voters.

    Do your job as the servant of the people and go home for good once your term ends.

    Your brother ,daughter and now son are given the best jobs and opportunities by you at peoples expense.

    Please stop the rot soon, if you want to move forward and bring yahapalanaya.

    Modi appears to be at very unease.

    Accuse of Daham beating defense officer became a reason for New King drifted from Old King and dethroned him. Manmohan Singh was forced handshake with Douglas while Chennai court seeking for murder.

    As Modi has to play Sonia’s role and Manmohan Singh role, he needs to think deeply to deal with Lankawe. That time, utterly uncoordinated and self-centered(serving) actions of Sonia forced Manmohan Singh to exasperate that if India tells Lankawe is not listing.

    While this hand shaking taking place Indian ambassador had warned Lankawe about its harbour usage. Is this new warning related to UNHRC?

    It is really noticeable because just now Ranil had returned from India. Why didn’t they speak with Ranil on these long term defense matters with Ranil in Delhi? The free trade, Mannar Bridge.. not any important contracts seems to be signed at this visit. It appears the entire energy of this visit was put on keeping India cool until the UNHRC deal is made with US.

    In the past four years’ UNHRC sittings India was needed to amend USA’s resolutions. Even Subramaniyaswamy played roles in altering those drafts. This year anti-Indian UNP directly negotiated with US, rather than going through India. They managed to butter US to the controls of UNHRC matters in their hand rather than leaving it on India’s hand, unlike the previous government.

    China Bay Oil Tanks are not coming under full Indian administration. It was hetch from America stealing the Trinco. Last government tried to get some more money by cancelling the contracts. But it may be safe now as Ranil who signed contract is back now. About Four years ago, Shivshankar Menon was talking about a long runway at KKS to land International air planes. It has not materialised so far.

    There were stories that Chinese has stored electronic weapons in Colombo. Lankawe was not allowed to raise its flag in Feb. in the Chinese are. Colombo Harbour, without a doubt with in the hand of China. Port City will go on if the UNHRC come for a rest. Matala Airport is said be going to China as it wants it to use planes carrying its tourist. It is not sure if one international Airport can be developed to land only one country tourist. That talk may be just talks. Earlier it was said that it would be used to plane repairs. The reality was it was turned into a paddy warehouse.

    Hambantota creates more stories. America wants it to use ships repair. If it is success in that they may have successfully broken the China’s string of perl.

    So unlike Sonia, who negotiated only about private trade with Lanka, Modi has a lot to talk with Lankawe. But, is it going to with Mangalow or Durham. In the past Sajin and Shenuka managed GLP. Will the same legacy continue? Can Durham manage Mangala?

      Mallaiyuran,

      Why did the Indians insist and get an Asst. High Commissioner’s office and staff in the deep South town of Hambantota – during MR’s raj. Do the majority in our country realise MR has brought the Sino-Indo soft war to Sri Lanka. The Chinese have been “helped” to locate in Lankan soil sophisticated Chinese spying equipment aimed at India and its highly sensitive defence facilities. India will not be enamoured with this. Instead of remaining neutral the Rajapakses have unwisely pushed Sri Lanka into the USA-West-India Vs China squabble. Sooner than later there will be a price to pay for that.

    It is sad kind of people represent SL when so many educated men from SL with foreign exposure to represent country. Silly voters to be blamed, this kind of silly party politcians, than couple independent who gave a try and got rejected by voters.

    From the young Sirisena’s smile, dress here and known record it is clear class and sophistication cannot be purchased. It is inborn in the family. This applies to that lass Chaturika as well. As they say
    in this part of the world, even if you bathe a crow in many rivers of milk the crow will remain black. Let My3 remember that carefully and conduct the rest of his somewhat flawed tenure to live to the letter and spirit of the declared tenets of the Yahapaalanaya. It is time
    the Ven. Maduluwewe (?) Sobita Thero called My3 for a 1-to-1 chat because the gamaya aiyo-sirisena is moves from one major mistake to the other. He may have much fatherly affection for his son, which is to be commended. But this is no reason he should unduly impose the young man of unknown social quantity on the nation.

      This is an elite argument to oppress the poor and the lower classes and this is the same argument used to perpetuate the caste system. That is you are born with certain specific attributes. Some say the children of elite schools will not take bribes. some also say that people of high class and caste are not corrupt. But our experience in the Sri Lankan history has shown that those from high caste and class are also corrupt like any other. But sometimes the elite do these in a sophisticated manner where as the lower classes are more open and get caught easily.

      But I agree with the fact that we have exchanged a ” hotu man for a hori man”

    What a crazy lot talking completely out of point. The question is why is Sira taking his son to the UN assembly? What is his official position there? If he wanted a free ride well and good, but how come he is sitting in the actual assembly? He was also seen accompanying his father to UK and China. All that broo ha ha about MR’s entourage comes to nothing with this new nepotism. At least Namal was an elected representative. But this guy? Hmm …… New Yahapalanaya???

    Sirisena said, before elections, none of his family or relatives will be appointed to public office or engage in other activities related with or using his power as President and will not waste taxpayers money. But he never said he will do the same after the election.

    Managala Samaraweera took this young lad Daham on a training mission before he is appointed to the vacant position of “Monitor of Foreign Affairs” to see if he fits Mangala’s Specifications.

    So what is wrong in wasting taxpayers money?

    Sri Lankan Tamils should boycott Indian Goods and American goods. They should not patronise the goods produced by these two countries. Will the TNA support it??

      I am proud of you, another Wimal Weerawansa in the making. This is another evidence the Sinhalese and Tamils are of the same genetic structure.

      The country needs people like Wimal and yourself.
