Maithripala Storm And Landfall On 8, January 2015

Modi – Maithripala Phenomena

In transiting from chosen candidates to the threshold of victory, both Modi and Maithripala have had a comparable journey though with some difference. In the second lap of Congress rule, lack of movement was disconcerting to the polity. Corruption interweaving itself into the fabric of life made the Congress still more repulsive. When many a nation was growing in strength, both economic and military, India was seen to lose her dynamism. In the comity of nations she had become lusterless. Even as India was lusting for redemption, Modi appeared as a man of destiny with a vision for new vistas. Both man and mission had instant resonance with the mood of the nation. The take-off was vertical.

In 2005 in Sri Lanka the birth of the regime itself was in a shroud of illegitimacy. Parentage was suspected to be dubious. Subsequent intelligence flow dispelled doubts and confirmed suspicions. The regime lived up to its evil nature in finishing off a parent in 2009. It was done with severe loss of life to the community that spawned him. The best of both communities, Sinhalese and Tamil joined hands in 2010, in a bid at ouster. Yet again, the odious with means most foul put paid to it for overstaying the welcome.

MaithripalaSpectacularly Significant

Maithripala Sirisena a senior Minister in the ruling regime has now made bold to break ranks and to join the opposition in challenging the incumbent President. For doing so he had the strongest encouragement from a former Head of State and another former Head of Government. There are several leaders besides to act in unison. His mission is to change the nation’s history. But it is not for him to have Modi’s privilege of a smooth flight after a quick take-off. He has the sturdy task of navigating in murky waters.

For this brave journey as an able helmsman, he has political stalwarts of many hues in trusted support. More crucially they are all wizened by age and experience. Added to that is peoples’ support from all ethnicities with vast sections of the majority community and minority communities showing a rare unity. All religionists and varied political entities too are acting in concert, moving together and spreading across North, South, East, West and Centre. Herein lies the prospect of a resounding victory for the common Presidential candidate, Maithripala Sirisena. Surveys show his victory as foreseen by 75% of the respondents, if not more.

Wave and Storm

In India the fact of ordered governance is seen in the manner elections are conducted by an independent Elections Commission, insulated from governmental influence. Narendra Modi the opposition candidate was therefore enabled to plan out his electioneering campaign quite freely. The Party announced his candidature in September 2013 and he made visible progress from then on.

This writer in his article of December 8, 2013 and another one dated December 14, 2013, both in Colombo Telegraph, referred to Modi Wave and Modi Storm. The transition was so swift. Writer’s perceptions were in November 2013, six months ahead of elections.

In Sri Lanka, orderliness does not prevail. An election is called a snap one for no valid reason. A date is fixed to spring a surprise on the opponent and to place him at a disadvantage. From announcement to election was a brief six weeks. All this mischief is called by an Analyst “Vibrant Democracy”.

Only as lately as December 13, 2014 this writer highlighted the current and future situations in Colombo Telegraph thus: “Tremors are already felt and a political Tsunami in the offing is perceived”. The shift of Indian Tamil MPs and PC members is a part of it. SLMC moving en masse with 8 MPs, 13 PC members and 163 members of Local Authorities, is another major shift changing the balance against the regime. They have pledged support to Maithripala. It was further observed “What is now a subterranean surge will soon be a visible upsurge”.

When the TNA and the SLMC together with the masses move, the tremors will be huge. It is known that the Sinhalese masses too are moving en bloc towards the common candidate. This is the storm to be seen and felt from now to the first week of January 2015. The landfall is destined for the 8th. What is described above is neither hype nor hubris. May be a bit hyperbolical for sake of emphasis.

It is the general perception that as the gap widens in popular support between the common candidate Maithripala and the incumbent President Mahinda, ideas of sinister design will face paralysis. It is all better for the death of familial rule and the survival of democracy.

    It is very necessary for democracy to thrive and enable the public to have faith in the system of governance, to have a change in a democratic way. Happy to see all opposition forces are ganging up together.

      You are wasting your time by barking at the wrong tree!

      Mr Sivathasan was one of the most disciplined, decent and dedicated civil servants I have ever seen. Wherever he was stationed in Sri Lanka he was hugely popular among the local population by virtue of his good governance and zero tolerance for corruption. I have a great deal of respect for him. I very much regret your comments overstep legitimacy and decency and becoming an irritation.

      Mr Sivathasan, I do agree with you My3 is heading for a comfortable victory.

      Robert,
      I had the privilege to grown up close/parallel to where Mr.Sivathasan grew up.I happened to known his parents aunts etc.

      I happened to see his children grow up and attend a Methodist School in suburb of Jaffna with liberal values.

      Despite the upheaval in the 80’S Jaffna, he was a level headed honest family man and a civil servant with integrity.

      He had revealed his roles during CBK times as civil servant many times,
      I don’t see any reason to repeat every time.

      Thanks.

I was not involved in any criminal activities, didn’t import drugs, didn’t send thugs to break my opponent’s legs, didn’t sell LTTE’s gold, didn’t send Karuna on forged passport, I didn’t cause tsunami, drought, flood, …. earthquake, or famine in rest of the world, didn’t receive any kickbacks from business dealing, ….. censor Colombo Telegraph, …… didn’t serve her Gin and tonic, ….. didn’t organise night race, …..

    The writer, while making a subjective assessment of the ‘pulse’ of the people, has perhaps not considered a critical ingredient which is vital for the will of the people to triumph on the 8th. That is that the plebiscite be conducted in a manner that is free and fair in a democratic environment. Unfortunately this vital ingredient is missing as most of us can clearly observe. Instead, SL is under a ‘dictatorship’ where all forms of public life have been politicised. There is no level playing field for all candidates. It is abundantly clear to the right thinking people, that the Dictator is exploiting unabashedly and brazenly, ALL State resources to his benefit and flouting most electoral laws and regulations with impunity. He is also bribing various groups to garner the votes and in the process did not even spare the much respected Professional National Cricketers who should not be expected to engage in Politics while on national duty akin to the Public Servants. On the day of the election, I have a strong suspicion he will unleash a devious, cunning, merciless, ruthless, brutal and barbarous plan to circumvent, frustrate and foil the will and verdict of the People. This is exactly what he did in 2005 (bribing VP to prevent Tamils in the North from voting – illegal act) and 2010 (by taking over the function of the EC to declare his own concocted election result). All Politicians who respect Democracy, bow to the will of the People and do not resort to such illegal and depraved activities during the period of elections. Unfortunately, Dictator MR is not one who respects Democracy. Instead he will do what it takes to sabotage and subvert the election process to obtain the result to further his reign in power. This is the nature of a ruthless Dictator.

    What do the hapless and innocent people do under such circumstances? All right thinking patriotic registered voters need to ensure they get their polling cards in advance, go to the polling station on the 8th inspite of many obtacles that may be placed in their way and vote for the Candidate they think will usher in a more just and fair society where the rule of law prevails at all times applied equally to all citizens. Furthermore, be vigilant and bring to the attention of the right authorities any irregularities that you may see or hear. In essence, ensure the peaceful People Power prevails on the day.

    It will not be easy for the Dictator and his goons to subvert an overwhelming result in favour of the CC. We must all play our part to banish this Dictator and his family for good.

    Modi wave did not hit Tamil Nadu. Like wise Tamils in N/E should not get carried away instead think before voting. If not my3-JHU wave will wash away all the political aspirations of the tamil people.

      Ranjan
      Still, no one could be more evil than Mahinda, so it’s absolutely essential that people of N-E should vote in the election. Remember, SWRD who passed the Sinhala Only Law, later signed the B – C pact. Tamils have no other option other than keep trying again and again democratically.

        And let’s not forget that pact was thrown in the bin my friend.

        My point is Mahinda’s stubborn cruel stand on the ethnic issue and his pro-China stand has won the sympathy and support of the international community for the Tamils. My3-JHU pro west stand will only reverse all the gains Tamils made in the international arena.

        • 1
          0

          Come on, Ranjan, what are you suggesting?

          Are you suggesting that Mahinda should win again and massacre another 80,000 civilians in the Vanni this time so the Western countries can invade Sri Lanka and liberate Tamils? But you do not want to be one of 80,000 civilians killed, do you?

          As you have suggested, this one of the reasons given by the LTTE for boycotting 2005 presidential election i.e. “Ranil was soft but Mahinda would be cruel so that Tamils would get more international support.” You know how this idiotic boycott turned out to be….!!

    Ranjan,

    “f not my3-JHU wave will wash away all the political aspirations of the tamil people.”

    You are a madyan trying to advise the Tamils about their choices! The Tamils should vote for better of the two that are available! My3 and common platform offer greater hope than sticking with the unscrupulous MR. He is a thug and robbing the country. His gang culture will not last; he is a bad news for Sinhala, Tamils, Muslims and the rest full stop.

      “You are a madyan trying to advise the Tamils about their choices!”
      Yes I am a madayan for pointing out the truth while you are smart for asking Tamils to commit political suicide by voting for my3-JHU.

      My3-JHU courageous stand against Mahinda is very selective that is only targets issues that harm Sinhalese society and does not make a difference to Tamils as both have not mentioned the ethnic issue in their manifesto, both have promised not to withdraw the cruel military, both have denied justice to the lives lost in the war by not allowing an international investigation in to war crimes and finally both have denied the merge of North and East.

      Let’s call spade a spade shall we, you lot cunningly want to use tamil votes to replace a selfish violent Sinhala chauvinist with a normal Sinhala chauvinist for the benefit of the Sinhala community. Sinhalese will not give a hoot about Tamils once my3-JHU wins.

    Mr.Sivathasan

    Your comparison of Modi & Maithri is far fetched. They have some things in common but there is a World of difference between the two.

    Modi was a perfectionist from the beginning whereas Maithri ( it may sound too harsh) was part of the evil empire and for me by waiting for so long he should be perceived as an opportunist.
    When it comes to the issue of Tamil Rights he is ducking and diving and how can you endorse him with conviction.
    He may be the answer to the Sinhalese grievance but not for the Tamils.
    People like you might be prepared vote for him to get elected in the hope that he might be prepared to give a bit here and a bit there but for me unless he is prepared to spell out in the Manifesto as to how he intends to address the Tamil issue I cannot support him wholeheartedly. Once bitten twice shy.

    • 2

      The comparison was only with the pace of progress. In a land with rule of law and in a land without it.

      There was no comparison of personalities.

      To achieve anything worthwhile, what matters is – THE INNER SPIRIT OF GOVERNMENT – Assiduously it needs to be built. To me it is sacred and means everything.

      Did the Treaty of Versailles ensure peace in Europe or prosperity for the victors? Hitler called it a scrap of paper, violating everything in it.

      With incredible foresight, MAO TSE TUNG as a young man of 26 or so, wrote to the authors “You people think you have achieved something great. In 10 or 20 years war will break out.”

        You are wobbling now:

        By your own admission one is a Land with Rule of Law and one without and how can you make a comparison with the pace of progress.
        One is moving forward and the other one is drifting back into dark ages.
        Pace of progress for who ” It is a bit like Nellu ( Sinhalese ) and Pullu ( The Tamils) ” I am sure you know what I mean.

        ***To achieve anything worthwhile, what matters is – THE INNER SPIRIT OF GOVERNMENT – Assiduously it needs to be built. To me it is sacred and means everything.

        The above is interesting especially – THE INNER SPIRIT OF GOVERNMENT. It has been dormant for the last 64 years. Where would it come from now. Are there any TABLETS that a Doctor can prescribe like Iron Tablets to increase Erythropoesis. I mean Sinhalapoesis.

        It might be sacred for you but if Maithri tries to yeild anything to the Tamils he will not live to tell the tales.

        Just one other observation:

        Even as India was lusting for redemption, Modi appeared as a man of destiny with a vision for new vistas. Both man and mission had instant resonance with the mood of the nation. The take-off was vertical.

        *** In India the mood of the Nation was Economic Progress and the Take off was Vertical.
        I hope it is not going to end up as follows. The Rocket that was fired to reach the Moon crash landed in Saithapettai.

        But in Sinhala Lanka the mood is one of believing what MR says as Gospel when he says a vote for Maithri is a vote for LTTE. One Sinhala writer recently wrote you can put up with some corruption for greater good.

    Mr. Sivathasan is still making some deeply flawed statements, in the second paragraph of this article.

    Shown below, is the link to Mr. Sivathasan’s previous article published on December 28, 2014, and my comment, which applies to both his articles.

    Presidential Election – Boycott Idea Crushed To Shambles
    https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/presidential-election-boycott-idea-crushed-to-shambles/

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Mr.Sivathasan,

    I agree with some of your thoughts, and disagree with others. Sorry that I do not have the time to elaborate.

    Let me point out a few of your thoughts which I disagree with.

    The third sentence of your article is: “Ironically the very creator of this misfortune was destroyed by its own creation.”

    I am surprised that you make such a profound mistake. Velupillai Prabhakaran was destroyed by the efforts of the West, Japan, India, and weapons supplied by China and others. Mahinda would not have been able to destroy the LTTE and VP, without the crackdown on the LTTE in North America, Europe; Indian Naval blockade; Western and Indian intelligence.

    Under the section heading, “Figures are Eloquent”, you write: “For this act of default we paid in May 2009 with 40,000 lives.”

    This is another profound error on your part. Even if Mahinda or another Sinhala Buddhist racist were elected with the help of Tamil votes, they would murder 40 thousand or more Tamil civilians, without any hesitation.

    BTW, I did not support various fascist, terrorist and malevolent acts by Velupillai Prabhakaran. Responsibility for such acts are shared by Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran, Karuna, Pillaiyan and many other LTTE leaders.

        If we correct our grammar are you going correct you absurdity. After pointing it out so many times, just like a pri-programmed robot, you are still bring here MAO TSE TUNG. “still making some deeply flawed statements”. Some others may be thinking you have started to correct most of your mistakes; but I see basically your ability understand thing zero and you cannot think about correcting anything. Do you know why people talk about Mao Tse Tung ? Karumam!(pity) Did he preach slavery like you? This is grade one boys and girls lesson. Pleas learn it. “Mao tse Tung brought freedom for Chinese people by armed struggle.” Why are you struggling here to bring wrong example and the metaphors that you never understood.

        Is it really important Tamils voting in this election just becuase you understaning of things is zero? “Thanekkedaa Chinkalam than pidarikku aapaththu.” (Speaking unwanted Sinhala is really dangerous). Do the Tamils have to do something based with your limited ability to understand? Do the Tamils have to dance for the Sinhala Intellectuals Music, just because you want to dance?

        Can you rewrite this sentence in you columns? “If Mahindha lose he will not use army to beat back Tamils. Maithiri will stop the army”?

    I am afraid that the electoral storm for MS has dampened due to bad weather.With so many in camps and unable to even move about will definitely have a bearing on the votes.With more than one million affected the EC should postpone the election.Bad weather may turn out to be a blessing for MR.

    “When the TNA and the SLMC move en masse , the tremors will be huge”.. says Sivathasan.

    Thanks Mr Sivathasan , although our inhabitants don’t need any reminders.

    They know bloody well, how the tremors hit them for 30 years, when Tamil Terrorists moved all over the Island, with the TNA tagging them..

    The tremors this time will be in the high range of the Richter Scale, with Assath Sally, Bathudeen and SLMC holding hands wilh the LTTE proxy TNA and moving en masse to carve out separate home lands for themselves.

    Prabakaran was right on the money.. Wasn’t he ?..

    Even Ranawaka’s Jathika Hela Urumaya ,the JHU which calls themselves guardians and protectors of the Sinhala Buddhist Inhabitant population has a memory span, just a tad more that what the “great Praba” predicted.

      “Prabakaran was right on the money.. Wasn’t he ?..”

      I have known quite sometime that both you and Champa have been a secret admirer of VP, both loved him to pieces.

      Read what Champa said about VP.

      Prabhakaran was better than President Mahinda Rajapaksa, should be punished properly

      December 7, 2014 at 11:44 am | lanka C news

      Speaking at the ‘Satana’ political programme in the Sirasa television,the former Minister and the general secretary of the Jathika Hela Urumaya party Patali Champika Ranawaka had said during the past five years the President Mahinda Rajapaksa had done more harm to the country than what LTTE leader Prabhakaran had done in the 30 years of ethnic war.

      The Rajapaksa administration was very corrupt and was full of ‘deal’ people and when he realised it only he decided to quit and should not allow them to flee the country and should be dealt under a peoples judiciary and given the maximum punishment.

        Dear Native,

        So Abiththaya Champika took 10 years to realize how bad Mahinda is?..

        He must be a pretty slow leaner. Isn’t he?..

        No wonder CC Sira made pacts with Ranil to give Sambandan the North.

        And signed off the East to Muslim Hakeem, soon after.

        When Champika realizes it, Sira and his brothers will be Billionaires in Baltimore living with green cards.

        And may even build a Buddhist temple there, for the two Theros, Rathna and Sobitha , because South wouldn’t have any room for them…

        And our BBS will ensure it..

    “It is known that the Sinhalese masses too are moving en bloc towards the common candidate.”

    If that is so why should he have the election?He can postpone it by using the petition sent which will be heard on the 3rd. The Cheap Justice will uphold the petition and say that the election should be cancelled.For mahinda it is better to have a cancelled election than a losing one.

    YOU ALL ARE FOOLS…..Full stop!!

    You all spend so much time in your hands to talk about just a document any journalist write to put food on their table.
    SL for a country of 22 million, has more politicians and parties and elections.
    This has become an employment industry where the goons and thugs also get a share of the loot.
    Why everyone talk about so racist about Tamils or Sinhalese or Muslims.
    We cannot live in the past!
    Those of you are born in SL are citizens of SL and whether your race does have the highest proportion or the lowest proportion, you are entitled to the basic fundamental right to live and prosper.

    The ROT has set in since the 1950’s. The culture of politics with murderers and goons looting the state and the president turns a blind eye should be stopped. The goons and armed thugs profiteering and finding employment via Political affliation has to stop.
    The Family aristocratic ascension to the throne via elected(read stuffed ballot) route must be stopped.
    The Freedom and independence of Press and Judiciary is the first and foremost to reestablish to curtail police and armed forces dancing to the prevailing political machinations. Accountability of ALL persons holding public office and State Sector is a Must.
    Work for the Change. Vote MY3. Force him to release the Judiciary from its bondages. Make Police accountable and purge all cronies who hold high office within the Police Department and make it fiercely independent.
    Make the Elections Department also independent.
    THIS IS WHAT SRI LANKA needs.
    ALL THOSE WHO ARE BORN IN SL are the citizens of SRI LANKA and have all the right to live and succeed in life. There sahoudl not be any DISCRIMINATION or any blockage to access stae services or fundamental right to live as a human being!
    Get this and Sri Lanka will Prosper. Else, some will prosper at the expense of others!!

    Mr. Sivathasan,

    You nearly matched the fact presentation style of Tissaranee! We extend to you our heart-felt gratitude and love for being with truth, virtue, common people of all nationalities and the unity and good governance of the country.

    I would like to propose some suggestions to be implemented by the Common Opposition:

    Carry out an essential items collection and delivery campaign to the floods and earth slips affected peoples. As the Rajapaksha government has abandoned its responsibility of looking after the victims the Opposition is morally obliged to perform the duties neglected by the government. This will definitely create a positive and fruitful image about the CC. During those delivery missions the Opposition can address the masses.

    Educate the masses using power point presentations, hand outs, speeches etc. how to access Lanka Enews, Colombo Telegraph, Lanka Truth etc. through proxies (Ultrasurf) using PCs, Laptops and especially mobile phones. This would provide the ignorant masses to know ugly truths about Rajapaksha myths.

    Make available speeches made by MS, RW, AKD and many others during current campaign and uploaded to SoundCloud etc. to campaign offices, meeting venues, rally venues etc. and disseminated those excellent speeches through loudspeakers until the meetings started.
