Law & Justice Are At Stake At Mylathmadu & Mathavanai In East 

By Thangamuthu Jayasingam –

Prof. Thangamuthu Jayasingam

Mylathamadu – Mathavanai area, has an issue of grazing land in the right bank of Maduru Oya which had been practiced for decades. Unfortunately the area was not formally developed when the left back was developed in 1982. 40 years later when the right bank takes a step to develop these lands many Sinhala farmers invaded and caused damage to the cattle and life of the farmers in this area. In fact the Governor at that time Ms Yahanpath also could be cited as added to the conflict as she had been reiterating that there were populations of Sinhala in these areas and was only interest in them. Many following thee conflicts do not understand it as a whole; a portion of the Maduru Oya scheme is in the Divulapothana Gs division of Mahaoya DS division in Ampara. Alost 4000 acres are cultivated in this area since 2012 (EIA report of Maduru Oya 2017). However 50,000 acres of are ain the Batticaloa district had not been allowed to cultivate by the Mahaweli authorities, further many cattle had been arrested  and/or farmers prosecuted in at different times claiming that the cattle went into the Divulapothana fields filing action in Dehiattekandiya. 

Action was filed in Court of appeal (CA/36/ 2021) ended in July 2022 with the Mahaweli Authority undertaking   that the intruders would be evacuated from these areas. Yes, they did to an extent. But hundreds of farmers  invaded around three months ago. Mahaweli had  filed action on 14 persons two weeks ago in the Magistrates court of Eravur and did nothing on the others. It is also true of all those who were party to the CA case 36/2021,  are bound by the decision. A separate case filed against all the administration officers of the district and Mahaweli was dismissed in the High Court of Batticaloa (B/528/20) quoting the CA case as being similar and binding thus the HC order was not necessary. Ultimately it ended up as ‘operation success patient dead’ as more intruders have entered these areas since July 2023 and caused disharmony and destruction  to the site and the community thereof. 

The cattle farmers began a sit in protest 33 day ago in Sithandy asking for the evacuation of all the intruders and to make way for their cattle to the grazing lands of about  300-400 thousand numbers, exactly what was granted or pledged at the Court of appeal long ago. This was submitted as a document to his excellency the President on 7th and was also communicated on 8th where he assured for a high level meeting soon. He kept his word and had a meeting on Sunday 15th and ordered for the evacuation of the intruders making way for the cattle farmers and also provides for land to these in need in their respective locations. We had been informed that various authorities Attorney general, IGP, DSs, Mahaweli authority etc were given specific tasks. Mahaweli Authority was assigned to develop pastures for the Cattle in the disturbed areas. Unfortunately the invaders/intruders accelerated their action in the occupies lands in the next two days. Further yesterday, 17th, escorted and facilitated by the Former Governor for the East Ms Yahampath and Buddhist Monk known as Ampitiye Suman Thero. it is reported that they had taken and placed a Buddhist statue to a place called Pillyarvattai area of pillayar) in the Eravurpattu DS division as seen in photos 1 and 2.

This not only violates the court order of Court of appeal and the directives of the President but also paves way for conflict among religious and ethnic groups.

These may usually be charged under criminal procedure act, civil procedure act and also under PTA

We have to await the return of the President to see what action he proposes/recommends for these violations.

Considering the gravity of the events it is so disturbing the authorities whether it be the Police at Karadian aru, Mahaweli authority, Forest department, Wildlife department, relevant District and divisional secretaries  had taken no action to date to resolve this event and area also slow to even report such action. What we frequently see is petty offences being taken to court f highlighted out of scale, and the larger being ignored. I cannot but state a quote  what I had read before, ‘Law if like a cobweb where the small insects are caught while the larger ones break through’. 

It further emphasizes  the need for a stronger provincial council with all powers and also with reduced power of the governor if the country needs to remain as one with national minorities of the country having equal rights, at least in the relevant provinces. The events noted are indicators known in history which had led to separation over time which must  be avoided. Though the constitution provides for equality which is not understood by some, for their own benefits. It is important that Justice provides time for them to learn the law and experience it for the larger interest of the country. Also it creates a sense of responsibility on all the citizens of the country  towards  the protection of equality  and pluralism that is  very much entrenched  in the constitution.

        The Bibel duly underwent its revisions, but the Mahavamsa was not yet there. God, why didn’t the monks who completed the dissertations to get their doctorates do the work properly??????????????????????????????
        /
        At that time Mahanama Thero did not have enough evidence regarding other archaeological finds to summarize the Mahavamsa. Considering all that, Buddhist priests should do their job long ago and clear the doubts of Buddhist followers. Instead of late times, today’s monks have become violent and V8 vehicle owners.

      It is only a Buddhist majority country and never has been a purely Buddhist Island. The North and East from ancient times has always been Hindu, especially after 10AD. The was no country called Ceylon or Sri Lanka until the British amalgamated the then separate Sinhalese and Tamil parts of the island in 1833 and created a new colony called Ceylon. They did this for their own political and economic convenience. This one action made the Sinhalese who confined to the southern, western and central parts of the island a majority on the whole island and the Tamils who were almost a 100% majority in the north and east a minority. Prior to the arrival of European colonials, the island was divided into three kingdoms, two nominally Sinhalese and one Tamil and all ruled by kings of Tamil origin. So how can you call the island the island a Sinhalese Buddhist nation when it never was and only became to Sinhalese Buddhist majority nation thanks to the British in 1833, when they created a new colony called Ceylon and then in 1948 handed over power to the Sinhalese majority.

      “Every one knows that Sri lanka is buddist country the flag simbles it.”

      The flag was jointly designed and promoted by Protestant white Guru Henry Steel and J R de Silva in the 1880s.

      Did you mean Buddhism did not exist before 1980?

      Now that crooks and fascist rap themselves around in those flags, it has become shield against law and justice, and enjoy impunity.

      Please define and explain Sri lanka is buddist country.

          The only one who couldn’t contribute to the topic, but spraying diarrhea excretion, hoping among to comment. Where is the newly invented Munthanai? Missing here, but attacked me earlier, when I mentioned this topic.
          Buddhism ( I am not talking about Sinhala Buddhism, which is only opportunistic rowdyism like the ones of Rear Admirable, Lemon Puff, Ganapathi Pillai, Anuradha, Yahampath, her partner in turmoil creation, the filthy drunkard Sumanan Rathinam………) is fundamentally flawed because it attempted to lure laymen into deep meaningless philosophies, which has no clarity to 99.999999..% of the population. But the group organized by Buddha has ventured into many unwanted areas. Buddha was astonished by the invaded Aryan Hinduism – Brahmanism, with the name of Varuna. Indran, Rudran like tyrants practiced the Southern Rapist Army Culture. They partied day and night, drunken Somapanam, with heaps of stolen animal carcasses, surrendered by slaved and low-class women. Buddha attempted to bring back Dravidian Siva Brahmin’s path of life (no religion). Eventually, unrelated to Buddha’s influence, most part of the lost Dravidian life was restored and even the Advaidha Chitanta was developed in South India- that time’s Indian Tamil Province.

          Buddha’s disciples lost the path he showed and created a Western styled organized religion. Consequence was Religion – Buddhism was wiped out of India where it was born. The Chinese rewrote the Mahayana, which they received from the TN Monk, Bodhidharma, in their own way. Most of it has nothing to do with Buddha, but only the contribution of the eventual Bikkues. Langkang too received Buddhism from TN. Chatanar talks about the history of Buddhism going to Ceylon, through Manimegalai, a nun, probably one of his disciples. Mahanama converted Cheeilthalai Chatanar’s version of Buddhism to current Sinhala Buddhism. Mahanama version kept the Ceylon politics very unstable from the very start. Jealous, murderous, cruel, tyranny is the history of that. Western Invasion gave a few years relent for this. But the freedom from the Western democracies’ control has quickly forced the Langkang to take U turn and now the country is a land of bankrupt, cruel, lawless, controlled by pockets of paganists, like Ratnam, Gnanam, Sumanan Ratnam, Anuragha, Rear Admirable, Mervyn Silva……

      Yes, the so-called national flag., after independence has the Chingkalla Buddhist lion with the bo leaves on the four corners, taking up most of the flag space and it menacingly holds the sword very threateningly at the two stripes that was belatedly added to represent the Tamil speaking minorities the Tamils and the Muslim Tamils or Sri Lankan Moors. Proved what the intention was from the time of independence. A subconscious reflection of what was to come. It became a reality in the case of the native Eezham Thamizh nation that had shared the island with the Chingkallams for thousands of years.

      It is not a Chingkalla Buddhist only country but as someone stated thanks to the British a Chingkalla Buddhist majority land, However this does not meant Chingkalla Buddhist Fascists/Extremists and rabid Monks are allowed to to around planting Buddha statues and building Buddhist Viharas everywhere, especially in Thamizh areas in the private lands of Thamizh people and public lands that have been allocated to their use. Or convert and claim ancient Hindu temples and sites as being Buddhist just because they find a Bo tree or fig tree growing there or some stone that they now claim to be an ancient Buddhist artifact, using the highly biased fake Archaeological department.

        Why don’t they do the same thing in Chingkalla areas on in the front of back yards of all these Chingkalla Buddhist fascists or even yours? Why deliberately come only to ancient historical Thamizh areas in the Eezham Thamizh homeland and do all these illegal activities claiming the island is Chingkalla Buddhist only and using this as an excuse and with the help of the Sri Lankan state to build new Buddhist Viharas or convert local Hindu temples to Buddhist , dispossess the local Thamizh of their lands to create new Chingkalla enclaves in Thamizh areas?

    If the Tamils were subjects of Sinhalese Buddhist kings and lived in Sinhalese Buddhist lands then you may have an argument, but they were not. They lived in their own lands, largely ruled by Tamil kings and chiefs and if any so-called nominally Sinhalese king ruled them it was for a brief period on the other hand the Sinhalese for most of their history had been ruled by Tamil origin kings and aristocracy. Yes, everyone knows that the Sinhalese unfairly using their majority have been deliberately creating flags symbols, history to create the myth the island is a Sinhalese Buddhist land only and all these latest land grabs overtly and covertly supported by the Sri Lankan state, especially in many fertile border Tamil areas is another move to commit structural genocide and gradually displace and dispossess the native Tamils of their lands and settle outside Sinhalese , in order to destroy the Tamil homeland and create a Sinhalese Buddhist majority everywhere, even in the Tamil areas. The photo of hardline rabid Buddhist monks accompanied by Sinhalese government officials and politicians who should be neutral installing Buddha statues and building Buddhist structures in Tamil areas itself is ample evidence and proof of what is happening.

      Poor Lord Buddha who preached love, peace and tolerance will be weeping to see his statue and religious symbols and what he preached is now being distorted and being used as a tool to marginalize displace and dispossess Hindu Tamils. Remember Lord Buddha himself was a Hindu and the Bo tree is sacred to Hindus. This is the reason you seem Bo trees around Hindu temples, and he sat under a Bo tree to attain enlightenment. In Tamil we call the Bo tree Arasa Maram meaning the king of all trees.

      I read Rohan 25’s comment very carefully.
      He may be right about the history of Sri Lankan religious beliefs.
      /
      I think our Sinhalese ancestors had Hindu inspiration long before Buddhism entered and established itself in this country. Good Buddhism has crept in but our elders were not smart enough to give up their attachment to Hinduism.
      /
      It has been handed down from generation to generation to this day and ii is now like old wine in a new bottle, looking back at our history.
      /
      This is why northern Hindus or Tamils and southern Sinhalese Buddhists are not very different even though they speak different languages. The latter must be explained to the nation for permanent reconciliation of this nation.

    High profile gang crime is on the rise these days.
    /
    The bottom line here is that every citizen, be it monks, other religious leaders or laymen, should listen to the law and authority of the land, but rogue false monks do not do this in public. SLPP-ROUDY monks have become owners of V/8 vehicles and criminal leaders with the direct involvement of politicians.
    /
    With the introduction of racist policies propagated by Mahendra Rajapaksa, this society has become a big threat. False priests commit sexual crimes in public. In the following days they indulge * masturbation* themselves in front of the public because increasing number of lay people protest today against fake monks.
    /
    It is a great crime in the eyes of any sensible person but these monks and their activities are increasingly accepted by Sinhala Buddhist racists or extremists.
    /
    And controlling the activities of the underworld is not as easy as it used to be. Politicians and corrupt police officers have strengthened the corrupt machine because of their long ignorance and direct involvement in some heinous crimes of the time.

        I have only a passing interest world affairs. Palestinians have my sympathy for living in a ghetto under an occupation with no future & having to comply with terrorist organisations like Hamas & Hezbollah, just like the Tamils in the north under LTTE in the past. I also feel sorry for the average Israeli citizen who wish to live in peace with the Palestinians, just as I would like to in SL with all ethnic & religious minorities.
        There is injustice in SL due to hardline politicians, just like in Israel & the gullible man on the street still believes it is the Rajapakses who can keep ethnic minorities their ‘place’. There is no long term solution in either country for peaceful living as long as there are politicians capitalising on racism & bigoted citizens.

              ” hardline Israeli politicians who play to the gallery by continuing to expand into Palestinian territory, “ That is mainly Netanyahu’s politics. Like Palestinians are not a group responsible for Hamas’ actions, Israelis are not responsible for Netanyahu’s action. Palestinians overwhelmingly (76%) voted for Hamas. Netanyahu’s party did not win the election, but did only a little bit better than Evil’s UNP. Hamas has all chances of holding to power unless ousted, Netanyahu trying all tricks of the political trade to come back.

              GR got rid of the LTTE & the Israelis want to cleanse Gaza from Hamas, so GR would be the best man for the job. That is a completely misconceived statement of what happened in the Tamils’ war. Chandrika had claimed she had won 75% of the war before handing it over to Old Rowdy King. By that claim she is mentioning the contribution of traitor Kadirgamar, who turned around the 32 Countries support to the launch a war. Further, Evil has his claim that he freed the military by stopping ICC interfering in the War Crimes. At the start, Old Rowdy maintained a friendship with the Bush Administration. Secretary Condoleezza Rice, a failed administration’s strong person, forced the EU to withdraw SLMM’s peace maintenance, after observing the Langkang government had built a large stockpile of arms, including Cluster, Chemical, Thermobaric bombs. Condoleezza Rice’s actions made EU countries offer Nobel Peace Prize for Obama within a month he took the power. Sonia Gandhi’s Indian army was freely operating in Vanni at that time. Pakistan, Ukraine, UK pilots flew the modern war planes Langkang used in the war. Retarded Hitler did not contribute tactically anything to the war victory. Single and completely encircling proof is he could not run the country just for one year. Other than Kamala’s book, the Gothapayal’s war, nowhere is accepted.

              “there are parallels in SL too. “ Inaccurate, dumbfounded statement.
              Tamils have been living in Ceylon (probably when Ceylon was attached to India) from prehistoric time. Sinhalese, like Malaiyalees, separated from Tamils, during the recent history, around the time Romanies were expelling Jews from Israel. Current residency for Jews in Israel was given by the UN’s settlement programs. Hamas policies of recovering the entire Israel from Jewish settlers is inconsistent with the world’s decision. Hamas won the election in Gaza only but trying to represent the entire Israel. Tamils never proposed anything like that but negotiated with Hakeem on Muslims’ Thani Alagu demand. SJV asked only for a federal State for North East, which was proposed by an anti – Tamils politician Solomon, to keep Tamils away from Colombo politics, which he wanted to be controlled by Kandy, Telegu Radala Families, only. Look at the current round of incidents. Hamas kidnapped 200 refugees from a Music Concert, killed another 1300 Israelites. LTTE, though an armed rebel organization, never did something like that. The total number of civilians killed in the 30-year war of LTTE is less than 1,000. But in the 1989 uprising alone JVP killed 12,000 civilians.

            • 2
              1

              How many are there in the CT calling JVP to return to power? What has happened in Langkang to that call to come out? Isn’t it the UNP-SLFP’s harmonious ruling, which one time focused only on Tamils? Then why are you objecting LTTE to coming back and taking the Tamils Eelam & rule?

              The whole Al Qaeda’s international murders were about the Israel-Palestine wars. ISIS’s challenge was to bring down the Western civilization-based democracy and install Islamic State only to show revenge for centuries old Crusades. During their war, some Tamil rebels kidnapped one American couple, but not LTTE. No harm was done to the hostages. LTTE did not use international operators, other than to collect money for war (there was extortion, too). Rajiv Gandhi’s Murder was a war activity outside of Tamils Eelam. Absolutely unwanted! Dr. Balasingham commented on that issue. But for a long time, the Royal Rowdy Chaitanya government has been proposing to take India to the ICC for the Indian army’s war crimes in the North. It was to that extent the Indian Army crushed Tamils. Today is the commemoration day for one such massacre in Jaffna Teaching Hospital. Today France released a statement saying (third statement from militarily developed countries, who have resources to analyze Al Ahil Hospital bombing) that the evidence is not pointing to Israel.

              Palestine is recognized by the UN. There is no comparison for that to Tamils. If the Tamil Eelam was recognized in 1948, the story might have been different. “Tamil” is practically a banned word in UN and its agencies’ floors. During this Hamas’ war, the current UNSG called all the powerful nations to ensure humanitarian aid to refugees. He is constantly objecting to Israel’s order, the mass evacuation of Palestinians. But Langkang asked and officially obtained clearings from that time UNSG, Ban-ki-Moon for a war without witness. Moon withdrew all Humanitarian operations UN & other Aid Organization were carrying out and he fired all UN employees on the ground to make the war go without witness. Remember, three days ago it was reported 15 pressmen died so far in the war. Almost all main world media has reporters in the field and broadcasting live war scenes. This is that much open war to the world. Many Western Modayas, including famous politicians & you, don’t know what happened in the Northern war front of Ceylon, because all world Media blacked out that war. BBC signed a contract with Rupavahini to relay exclusively the government’s side of events in its channels until the war was over.

              UN accepted its neglect of R2P on Tamils’ issue and carried out an internal investigation. But it did not release the investigation report officially, only BBC leaked an edited copy. The UN did not mention anywhere on the report Nambiar’s name, the main culprit misdirected the UN’s objectives. Even after that investigation, there was no action on obvious criminals like Nambiar, an open bribe taker. While he was appointed by UN to manage Appe Aanduwa – LTTE war, his brother, an Indian Army commander, was in Colombo as Rowdy Royals’ consultant. The UN Voluntarily ignored that mountainous conflict of interest. This secret channel was used to give tips to the UN and get tips from UN’s official info for Royals. The UN continued to employ Nambiar until Britain forced him out on his similar activities in Myanmar. Today & yesterday, during the discussion of Palestinian- Israel war, in Parliament, the Tamil MP donkeys are braying that “What Happened to Tamils is Happening to Palestinians, What Happened to Tamils is Happening to Palestinians.” If LTTE is still alive, no doubt it would have tired this brain paralyzed donkeys to light posts and beaten them until they bled. These are the guys negotiated with Old Rowdy Royals for the Secret Solution (while he had appointed Nimal De Siri Pala to abolish 13A), then Referendum, later Pondicherry police instead of 13A with EVIL Emperor!

      Raj, .
      U and I see the contrast everyday. Unfortunately our people and their politics are beyond 😕 all hopes. They are just hypocrites.
      .
      I font think anyone can make wonders, not even slf proclaimed uncorrupted JVP led pundits. .
      .
      In fact JVP led stage dramas can only entertain their crowds temporarily.
      .
      Walk 🚶‍♂️ their talk 👄 can only be a dream in a country almost ruined by total ignorance and fake perception 😕😕😕😕😕😕😕😕😕😕

        .
        75 year old teenagers would NAIVELY get caught by JVP propaganda but having studied it closely, they would definitely end up in vain if they would dodge our questions 😉 further..[ we have raising them for the last 10 month].
        .
        Economy and debt restructuring
        Health
        Education
        Above 🤔 all how they would get on with SINHALA BUDDIST MONKS who are the biggest obstacle [deadly cancer] of lanken politics.

        We are ‘guests’ in foreign lands, in a democracy where multi culturism is promoted. We can see the bigger picture, whereas, many in SL are like frogs in the provobial well.
        Unfortunately, the mindset of the average man on the street in SL has been distorted by years of racial policies & jealousy of minorities that politicians have cultivated (just like the Nazis did in 30s Germany). Maybe the education system is also to be blamed. I remember, as school boys, after being wound up in the history lesson with heros like Dutugamunu & patriots like Anagarika Dharmapala, we used to bully the tamils in the next classroom but we became wiser as we grew up. What happened then can be described as harmless fun but the rise in political monks in recent years & the support they have, has been the root cause for the current situation. We are happy to accept mega corruption, mismanagement & abuse of power in the name of ‘protecting’ the Sinhala race & Buddhism. How stupid.

    Who is the Defacto President of Srilanka?
    Who is the Dejure President of Srilanka?
    Political Buddhism has overtaken Law and Justice in Srilanka- A Land like no other.
    Sarath Weerasekera at Kurunthoor in Mullaitivu and Anuradha Yahampath [EX:Governor Eastern Province ] at Mylathamadu and Mathavanai in Batticaloa.
    Both are leading lights of the Gota Think-Tank Viyath Maga essentially a racist outfit.

    The latter is essentially a Textile designer and owner of that textile outlet Kandygs which deals with Bedsheets and Pillowcases and the like………

    She is no doubt smarting after her removal as Governor and is now embarrasing the present incumbent Thondaman. an appointee of the President.
    She is under the illusion that she can getaway with her antics with the backing of Gota.
    The vagabond Ampitiya Sumana Thero seems to be her Mahanayake Thero either Malwatte or Asgiriya………..

    Anyway the statue of the Buddha that was placed by them has now been removed.
    What a damn shame. Even the Buddha is not spared by these folks who claim to be Buddhists………….

    If the President has to provide decisions for every issue, why do we need a Minister and a State Minister? Why do we need a PM? Why not send all of them home and make the President the sole authority?

          Douglas,
          Were you then sick when they introduced the Lalith Athalamudali Mahapola Scholarship for less fortunate undergraduate students? How many of the students benefited from it?
          What about the gigantic Mahaweli projects that came within 5/6 years? were those reservoirs not life line to the farming community who are the majority *70%* in our begging country? alas, is ur mental state to be said normal ???????
          /
          Remember when Ronnie de Mel was finance minister during JRJ’s early days?
          This should not necessarily mean I am a UNP person, but the huge difference between today’s minister and THEN minister is sky/earth or not? My parents were then CP. They worked for SA WIckramasinghe. I as a small lad had no idea about politics.
          /

    Recently, the Tamil farmers of Mylathamadu and Mathavanai who have been living there for generations went to the police and complained about the encroachers from outside and the thug monk Ampitiye Sumane who assaulted some of them. This matter was also reported to the President who then announced he would send a police team to investigate this matter. But when the police came there the first thing they did was fall at the feet of the thug monk in order to obtain his blessings (Aasheerwadaya). How can the police do their work properly if upon seeing an accused they go and grovel before him shamelessly like that?

    Both the investigative arm and prosecutorial arm of our legal system have become a bigger farce than usual in recent times. And the judicial arm is like the curate’s egg — good sometimes but not always!

      This filthy mouth in robes is a real disaster..He entered lanken sangahood because hot 🔥 tempered loner was rejected by lay people for such men, the last savage is the temple. I think he ll not survive long. Nature ll for sure take care of him soon. All evil men get caught by natural punishment now or later., look at how it ended up for Rajapakses s Goebells aka Jackson Anthony.

            Yes I did several times., just to be in the good books of our Casanova nimal fernando.

            I understand her grandfather is Englishman.
            She wants to export Ganja.
            She challenged C V Vigneshwaran for a debate on Sri Lankan/History this was just before she switched loyalty. Then completely forgotten about it.

            Look at these politicians, see how they are being civilised by their own Anagarika brand of Buddhism, (Sinhala/Buddhism).

            No wonder she is wearing saffron saree.

            I Now dont have any hopes on DIVINE or karmic forces since i could not see anyone in that high crimes groups be punished by recent COVID pandemic. oNly REAL humanist such as honourable minister Managala Samaraweera was punished.
            /
            The reason why SOUTH ASIANs REMAIN to be the biggest folks groups diving in bitter poverty is connected with their myths and being unable to build consensus even to any common issues regardless of its size. I was shocked by watching a video on That YAKSHANI / DIANA gamage performed her devil dance in the parliament yesterday thinking that she represents the lanken womanhood. BUt all these dramas are based on hyporcrite hidden games.

          NV, this is not all it is appeared to be. THese are politcal games of medamulana et.al.. As usual something is behind. the news.They are abusing such monks which is well connected with the hidden agenda. Sumanaya of Ampitiya, Galsadhu*now in japanese prison*, Ballala of Ittekande, Hora Bhikshuwa of Kelaniya Rajamaha Vihara, madagoda abeythissa mudalali, Ratana who dances in and out of parliamnt, , Ghanasa aka Gandhasara are all protagonists in each episode.
          /
          The Rajapaksas who will have to face the music for all various high crimes commited deliberately , in the near future are behind this. Trust me, the same Sinhala Buddhists will rally to tear down each Rajapaksa, behind others, as some tribal states in Africa or Latin America can. It ll be similar to RWANDA brutalities. Those Sinhala Buddhists are *not* Buddhists, take my word for it.

          it is a real funny country. People should be real fools. FOr what purpose they are asking for ELECTIONS ???
          /
          Wijedasa was publicly dismissed by GOOD GOVERNCE govt and isolated by everyone during that period from 2015 to Nov 2019. He could do the job well and become weeraya but the bugger protected them and let the FERMENTATION extended.
          /
          Very same man who then protected RAJAPAKSE being charged for all their deliberate high crimes became today s minister of justice.
          /
          And the other LAWYER who defended GOTA the high criminal became the minister of EXTERNAL affairs. / what a nation ???
          /
          THOSE WHO STOOD AGAINST CONTRADICTIONS IN CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDAMENTs acted pro/ them in the next sesions as their brains were taken away by aliens.

    Now the court jester Weerasekaran has also joine the party and has warned Chanakiyan and other Thamizh MPS not to interfere with the newly erected Buddhist temple Mylathumadhu. He has not jumped from Kurunthoor Malai in the north to the Mylathumadhu in the east. He states that the former eastern province governor who was appointed by the now disgraced Gothic and was dismissed for her anti Thamizh activities in the east, had given land titles to these illegal out of area Chingkallams to settle on lands belonging to Thamizh pastoralists and farmers.
