Maithripala Is The Best Candidate: Prof. Wijesinha

I believe Maithripala Sirisena is the best candidate at this stage to take the country forward, UPFA MP Professor Rajiva Wijesinha says.

Speaking to Colombo Telegraph, Prof Wijesinha said he believe that Sirisena is the best candidate because he has always responded to the issues he raised after the reconciliation meetings in the North and East and has been an efficient and committed Minister.

“The president seems to think the purpose of the Presidency is to hold elections, whereas he should realize the purpose of elections is to choose a president who will govern,” Prof Wijesinha said.

He said that President Rajapaksa was repeatedly told in October to engage in reforms and fulfill the pledges of the last election, prior to holding an early election.

“We won a great victory in 2009 over terrorism, but it should have benefited the Tamil people too, and empowered those abused by the LTTE. We cannot stand back and see it destroyed, and our forces exposed to unfair attacks with a Foreign Ministry unwilling to defend them and determined to destroy anyone who can defend them. With little effort to promote reconciliation and empowerment for the minorities and the deprived, we must concentrate on reconciliation, which is now ignored,” he added.

Prof Wijesinha was among the group of UPFA Ministers and MPs who quit the coalition government to join the common opposition movement to which includes Duminda Dissanayake, M.K.D.S Gunawardana, Dr. Rajith Senaratne, Arjuna Ranatunge and Vasantha Senanayake.

During the media briefing held to announce the candidacy of Sirisena it was stated that more government ministers are to follow suit in the coming week and join the common opposition movement.

      Good old-fashioned Turncoat!

      (a case of Vaasi path’thata hoiya!)

      Our Professori has given up on his old sweetheart and is hoping his fresh new darling will slip him a length if the coup comes good.

      With friends like this, who needs enemies.

    Dear Rajiva,

    I have been very critical of your writings in the past, and I would have used derogatory remarks when commenting too. Now that you are in the camps of the opposition, I will excuse you for all your previous shortcomings. And I too will tender an apology if my comments had offended you.

    Moving forward, I sincerely hope we all can be righteous in a law abiding and in a just society.

    God Bless.

        No need for Fazl to go to Saudi if Mara and his gang are throw out. Ultimately,it will be THEY who will need to seek Saudi help like Idi Amin was when he was booted out and the international community had a prize on his head.

      The general rattons in the opposition trying to scramble for cover in the event of exporsure to masses and ….
      what a shame if we cant have Boris Johnson as foreign minister. then watching him give the fire works to wijesinha on behalf of Snowden and the British folk. this gasbag would shit in his pants like commie ken livingston did in the lift. then lanka can have some degree of selfrespect from idiots who feel they have spun the world with their 2 D literature as their arty farty profession.

      Fazl, Very often people fear to act according to their convictions due to compelling circumstances. Prof. Rajiv is one example. I too have criticized him but still respect him for his liberal issues.

      I would not be so kind. Here is man who shamelessly defended tyranny and has now assumed a righteous persona – having apparently realized Rajapaksa’s shenanigans ‘just three months ago’. By your logic, we should also open the doors for the other ‘educated’ hypocrites who may join the opposition if they sense the changing tide. DJ, gl etc. come to mind. I hope such an eventuality will not come to pass, and the entire lot will be thrust into political oblivion if we manage to get rid of this murderous regime.

    dear Sam,
    The most sensible thing you have said so far and the wisest thing you have done. Perhaps you were waiting for an opportunity like this to arise. A god send. Bensen

    Professor Rajiva Wijesinha

    Is it true that you were hunting for a Ministerial post under Tyrant and your relation Rajapaksa? As they didn’t give you one, now you have jumped from Tyrant to Maithripala Sirisena.

    Maithripala may create a new Ministry for English education and you can be a Minister and teach Maithripala Sirisena as well.

    This is a good opportunity for you to take revenge on Cheap Justice Mohan Peiris.

      for that you have to watch the season not the reserva label alone and the river next to the growth.
      it takes long to be young so try a sherry tasting of christmas cake- Pedro Ximénez (also known as PX) vino pero tinto next from the river beyond.

    Rajiva
    though its late, I for one thing will appreciate for you to come out of this junta regime and you have to apologise the fellow citizens of this country for acting like a Gobels in protecting these white van killers.

    I assume your late father Sam W and DA Rajapaksa was buddies and came from the same village and is that a reason for you drag on with Rajapaksas for so long?

    Tell your mate DJ as well to stop licking the Medamulana rogues backside.

    Prof. Rajiva,

    Congratulations. You have taken the right decision after explaining over about three months in rather oblique terms what was wrong with this government. Your words about the plight of the Tamils five years post-war are most welcome. You have travelled widely in the north and east after the war and had access to every dark corner. Please expand on the details in the days and months ahead. Thereafter, contest for a parliamentary seat from the north or the east. You will win hands down.

      These Rjasingham brothers are real opportunists.

      Now they think that Rajiva may be the pathway for them to reach Navatkuli.

      What politics for both them?

      Now they have started new diaspora organisation to fool more Tamil victims.

      They are no shame to be in public with their bankrupt ideas.

        Anton,

        You are spot on – opportunists indeed!

        Apparently RN (and perhaps the sibling too) got hand-outs from MR to con the Diaspora into doling out money for the regime.

        After having gobbled up all the free-bee’s NR tried hard for three and a half years but failed miserably (thank God!) to convince any significant amount of Diaspora contributions.

        Possibly the regime turned on the heat late last year and started going for NR’s neck, and only then NR got conveniently “enlightenment,” having burnt the candle at both ends! Now suddenly he is the wise-man in charge of castigating the regime at every “opportunity” he gets!

        Ultimately he has now conceded how dumb he is – bit is still to make good on the SL money that was spent on him, that was in fact the rightful property of the war-victims, not to be spent on foreign-currency earning “opportunists”.

    I admire your courage in deserting the dictator and joining the common opposition.

    Please stop saying that Mahinda Rajapaksa was misled by the people around him and all the problems the country and the people are having are due to these people and not the President. Mahinda Rajapaksa is corrupt to the core and he is an evil and cunning liar. There are numerous examples of these and you know it.

    I hope you hammer some sense into your pal Dayan and make him see the light as he still appears to be batting for the cruel Dictator.

    First and foremost, this Wijesinghe at one time shamelessly defended this regime when the height of criminality was taking place against innocent Tamil civilians and indiscriminate abuse of power. As long as he did this doby work, the regime recognized this Wijesinghe’s capabilities and rewarded him. Shamelessly Wijesinghe also churned out absolute shit statements (sometimes even ludicrous) that this regime appreciated and collected his shameless pickings vide of ethics, principles and humanity of a person of similar education. Today due to changing times, his shameless manipulated defending statements protecting this regime are no more required. Thus similar to a condom, he is now lying inside the dustbin doing nothing and unrecognized anymore however filled with Rajapakse’s semen which is now smelling stale whenever he opens his mouth. Their is one thing the Rajapakse’s accomplished and that is to pay premium to have educated professionals to shamelessly clean the criminality of their acts. Kohona typically is another one of these doby’s, though very less is heard of him. These are typical Sinhalese Bastards brandishing their education and position to gain quick bucks sans principles, ethics, conscience and humanity and shamelessly bringing disgrace to the race. It is hard to believe why so many educated Sinhalese such as GL, Ravinatha Ariyasinghe and many more have lost their ethical principles and have become rabid dogs blindly supporting a regime that has become notorious on corruption, nepotism, criminality, arrogant abuse of public funds…you name it…they are behind it. Recognized organisations will never employ these dobys, knowing their past history of work. Today Wijesinghe “the condom in the dustbin” has limited choices for a job and with his only skill better described as doby work, will have some degree of work with the new formed opposition to again shamelessly skillfully berate statements of typical shit against his “once upon masters”. The Mafia in Italy had a punishment to fellows who were time servers, such persons were found dead with their penis cut and in their mouth.

    Well Rajiva, the turncoat.

    Hmmm, well well well. What do you expect from policians in Sri Lanka.

    I am still to see a real statesman in Sri Lanka.

    There is so much hope placed on Maithripala Sirisena. We must remember MS just like Rajiva were all on the MaRa camp only till yesterday. I hope the cure that MS and his turncoats promise to bring is not worse than the disease.

    well for one I dont trust Rajiva,he is a man without principles….in 2009 especialy with regard to cases of sexual abuse in Manik farm this infamous Prof went on TV denying it and said there was only one case where a soldier was inside a womans tent for hours and said “they must have been discussing Greek philosophy”

    Rajiva and his bosom pal Dayan J are opportunists looking a for a nice plum foreign posting (in a western country of course!)

    Hi Kiri Yakka, maybe KA Sumanasekeram might buy those used condoms for a rendezvous with a dalit woman. He might take them home, wash them with Sunlight soap and use them.
