Kandy, Mawanella Courts Issue Restraining Orders Against Anti-Government Pāda Yātrā

The Kandy Chief Magistrate today issued a restraining order against the Joint Opposition Pada Yatra which was set to commence tomorrow from Kandy. The Magistrate issued the order against the Joint Opposition Parliamentarians ordering them not to commence the Pada Yatra from Kandy and instead they may commence it elsewhere, outside Kandy. The decision was issued after Kandy Police requested for a court order.

Meanwhile, the Mawanella Magistrate in a court order instructed the protestors to use alternative routes during the protest, bypassing the town of Mawanella. The order was issued after Mawanella OIC went to court seeking a restraining order to suspend the Pada Yatra.

The Kandy Chief Magistrate also ordered the UNP not to conduct it’s recruitment drive during the morning hours and to commence it after 2.00 p.m. tomorrow.

The Pada Yatra which was scheduled to commence from Kandy tomorrow, was set to reach Colombo on August 1 and was an anti-government protest march.

Over the weekend, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe declared that if the Joint Opposition can bring 10,000 people on to the road against the Government, then his Government was capable to bring a larger number in support of the Yahapalanaya.

      Yatra is necessary to give a functional farewell to Mahinda & Co. They should be paraded through the roads and heads shaven in the Kelani or Mahaveli and then sent to the middle of the ocean in a condemned ship.

      David Cameron resigned as Prime Minister despite his mandate to remain as Prime Minister. Did he make any noise after leaving his office?

      This Mahinda Rajapakse, despite being routed in the Presidential election is unable give up the power he enjoyed. In order to detract and cover up his down right frauds and war crimes, he is on the spree to destabilize Sri Lanka.

      He needs to sent to The Hague or a special court somewhere in an iceburgh.

      All this “if you raise 10,000 we will bring out 20,000” is just hot air.

      To save time and effort, JO Pada Yatra leaders will nominate someone to challenge Batalanda Ranil.

      They will strip and the one with bigger cock wins.

      Everyone can resolve, no need to give extra business to the kakul-dostramahathaya’s.

    A repeat of the Mawanella Riots would be disastrous.

    The Yatra may be actually to commence another one.

      Justice

      Don’t be afraid, no repetition of Mawanalla incident, people are matured now, especially Sinhalese and Muslims, they learn lessons from the past and cannot be misled by anybody.(ruling or opposition).

      But may be the beginning of the end of MS-RW.

      So it’s wise to reconsider this decision for the smooth flow of democracy and GG and life for people.

    CT Admin what is the relevance of publishing the below paragraph in the above news report.

    Over the weekend, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe declared that if the Joint Opposition can bring 10,000 people on to the road against the Government, then his Government was capable to bring a larger number in support of the Yahapalanaya.

    It is not a Patha Yatra. It is a Yatrai Paavikal (Evils) in Tamil. These are the people who robbed the Nations, who violated the humanity, who ran the white van company to abuduct and murder a large number of innocents, who misused to create family dictatorship in this island. They want to create another bloodbath in the name of Lord Buddha.

    Did someone say wetting their pants.

    More like Batanada is shitting in his jocks..

    Otherwise why would he get that Two Up playing Wahabai to dig up Hyde Park, before Pada Yatra arrives in Chamapakayas Megapolis?.

      Not surprised Mr. Sumanasekera, not surprised at all.

      Without hurling insults and abuse, you simply are incapable of conveying your message in an intelligent way.

      Sadly, it says much for various aspects of your upbringing, even though you may not agree.

        Mr Justice,

        Did you say insult and abuse this Yahapalana lot, which you seem to adore.?.

        How can one do that to Ammata Digital Harin, Batalanada Ranil, Keselwatta Kid, Ajith Perera, Jonny Hip hop, Rajitha and last but not least the poodle club pup Senasinghe.

        In fact if are looking for justice and fairness , you must advise them not to insult our Sinhala Buddhist Majority and their Sangha, and castrate their living standards, all to please the West and give Diaspora the Eelaam.

        If you get time, listen to the speech of the new boss monk of Asgiriya which he made with the Cardinal sitting beside him.. That will wake you up , that is if you are a real Srilankan.

    If these oligarchy of MR are adamant that they want to loose weight, they should walk on the opposite direction. Then we will see them not only wet their pants one way or other but the tops too. When this happening, good to see some white vans backing if in case some one cannot take any more, and on the other hand, the opportunity would be an opportunity for white vans to redeem the bad name that they acquired saving some lives and to make these vans people friendly.

    No mention of the fact that the UNP recruitment drive was also shifted as stated in the article? CT readers can’t read beyond the headlines.

    That is Yahapalanaya. Courts are neutral and both parties have to follow their instructions.

    This Yahapalana IGP is not much chop either..

    2nd Crack shipment arrived last week with 300 Kilos inside Sugar bags.

    With the previous delivery, it is a total of 500 Kilos in just under 3 months..

    Bodhy Sira swore on Mahavamsa that he will eradicate Dope and the Dope peddlers.

    I don’t think he knew what he was reading from the speech writers script.

    A JO member and a real SLFP MP raised an interesting and important point on Derana Debate Forum.

    Yahapalana Finance Minister has a powerful woman sec in the Ministry, who just dial up the Yahapalana Customs Officers and tell them to release Containers without inspection.

    Both these Coke shipments were in containers, which weren’t presumably not inspected.

    Is this Yahapalana IGP too busy working on Court Orders to stop Pada Yatra, that he hasn’t got time to check on Dope containers , which are released without inspection of their contents?.

    No any problem for Piliyandala Police stations’ Environmental Section OIC. He is protecting all illegal garages, constructions and Dengu breeding places in this area. He is no.1 criminal but non of the senior police officer is taking any actions against him and he is working more than 08 years to this police station corrupting and terrorizing whole area.
