Malicious Media Discrediting Government, President Tells Sri Lankans In London

President Maithripala Sirisena lamented that the ‘forward march of the motherland’ is being stymied by certain people’s efforts to suppress truth and inflate untruths.

Addressing a gathering of expatriate Sri Lankans living in London, President Sirisena requested them to understand the true situation and support efforts to put the country back on track, according to a media release of the President’s Media Unit.

Sirisena further stated that correct information about the government’s programme to develop the country while establishing democracy and freedom has not been disseminated to the general public. He principally blamed unnamed media institutions and social media platforms for this state of affairs, claiming that political and commercial objectives have motivated these to suppress the truth and disseminate lies.

He added that the Government has spared no efforts over the last three years to discharge all responsibilities to the ‘beloved motherland’ and noted that turning the peace obtained by establishing reconciliation and co-existence into a sustainable peace has been a priority in these efforts.

President Sirisena boasted that several significant victories have been scored over the past three years including economic policies that have been successful at strengthening the economy of the people and developing the country, and winning over sections of the international community previously arrayed against the country.

    So did you not maliciously discredit former President Rajapakse accusing of murder, corruption, thief. Now you want to give him the post of Prime minister. So is it that Rajapakse is a murderer, a thief and still want a to honour such a person with the prestigious job! Or is he is not a a murderer and thief you did knowingly falsely accuse him. Then you have to accept the same from the others.

    In my opinion media truly expressed you you really did and that cannot be then a malicious propaganda. You did cheat the 6.2 millions of voters telling lies. What more do you deserve. It is best you resign from you post. Country does not need such a backbone-less backstabber.

    PResident was earlier thinkng that MAhinda Rajapakse was delayingany solution to the SAITM through Trade Union Activity. But, now he thnk it is a foreign country that wants medical students in their country and even turkey is interested offering Scholarships to Sri lankan students. Some how the interested country had said, do not stop. Let them come here to study. We even give them scholarships. England had said .we would not say that. Eveangelists say, we don’t say that but, we like if they come.

      Jim, Both MR disruption and foreign country help they depend on GMOA money mafia to see which way it can succeed to grab 100 SAITM students off KDU, who are already UGC approved and court verdict approved for SLMC registration and do not have to pay GMOA. If GMOA can steal these, they can demand ERPM mafia money and job agency commissions and still fail 85 % to be chased out of country. The SAITM students were UGC approved to live and work here, not to be chased out of competition and out of country by ERPM mafia terrorists. Diaspora wanted to go but SAITM wants to live here. Prez. must legislate for all SAITM ONE CLASS to stay in his plan of KDU. Let GMOA take fresh gullible Z who wish to leave SL, NOT SAITM. SLMC cant do injustice but finally obey court law and order or be imprisoned. SL insane Marxist/Communists visualize utopian Russia but Putin R Orthodox not SB

        Jim, GMOA has no authority to interview and admit Z but will steal SAITM already approved and with international A/L superior to the Z and try their private twin program with Nizhny or other. Finally at ERPM, they will fail 85%, having extracted money from all. GMOA got into SLMC to gain authority to register their stooges and kick the rest. GMOA wants only Z and not globally accepted London, Cambridge and IB Diploma of British schools at A/L Their sinister hidden scheme involves even CEO of SAITM who studied abroad and was later failed.

        President needs to affiliate all SAITM to KDU as the judiciary has given verdict that all SAITM are UGC govt approved and hence SLMC registrable. Karl Marx legacy of rebellion should put SLMC into contempt of court. After wasting almost 10 years of student life for 1000 govt. approved SAITM students, GMOA insanity is taboo. All state students and all KDU are pushed out with MBBS. Why not SAITM.

    America doesn’t have an ambassador from Lankawe. Prasad Kariyawasam left America last year, August. Now, sad part is, Jaliya could not get out of America. Don’t ask me if America is holding Jaliya because Kariyawasam dodged to return back to America. I have no Idea about it at all. Isn’t it sounding like the Hindu Culture that bride’s party holding a young man from bridegroom party’s village if the bridegroom went to his mother’s house to see her & doesn’t return back to bride!
    Man this American hijack is little bit wider that that it seems. I hear America is holding Jaliya’s wife and her sister too. (They signed with Fort Magistrate Juliya’s return, but now that magistrate has to search for the people, who signed for Jaliya’s wife and her sister.) See America is holding even his wife and her sister for Jaliya’s juggleries. Now you guy guess the mistake we did at the start of the year when they suggested that Britain should kick out Priyanka’s Children and the wife too, for Priyanka’s gestures. Now we get it. Yes, it can be held or kick out wives and children for the guys’ frauds. Surendra and Father Emmanuel are right.

    I think Old Royals also correct in criticizing the Yahapalanaya guys as inefficient. In their time, Old Royals had embassies opened to Swaziland, Tanzania, Etriya…..and Ambassadors posted, neat and clean. These guys don’t a have Ambassador in USA? Aren’t the countries like USA, Russia, and China et al have about 1000 employees in each other’s offices?
    America is, so far stopped Jaliya from flying, but did not arrest. The reason could be, Jaliya has already told that he is very sick on his eye for months so looking for a hospital. Americans seems to be smart so they don’t want to arrest Jaliya and waste a bed in a veteran hospital. In Lankawe, Modaya government arrest sick people and then put in Hotel Hospital.

    This man is not qualified to represent Srilanka at CHOGM.

    He should have delegated this responsibility to someone more respectable.

      Agree
      .
      Patholaya basically is incompetent to represent SL abroad. Period.
      His cabinet is a bunch of rogues basically enriching themselves for a “happy” retirement for themselves and extended family; to hell with the country.
      The country is broke;borrow more money; more people starve. See no end to this tragedy?

    We actually don’t need the Media to discredit the Government; the Government is quite capable of doing it on its own.

    Native Vedda: Thanks. I am not into history, other than to learn, re-shape and formulate the present. I also avoid “generalizations” based on historical facts and incidents. That is my way and definitely against such “ghettoization” on historical or present day events of any group based on ethnicity, religion or way of life. You are free to disagree and I know you will. I also apologize and say sorry for that sarcasm directed at you in my comment. .

      I respect your comment however I wonder why champions of parochial nationalism and bigoted nationalists are unable to define and explain what exactly they mean or understand by phrases such as Sinhala/Buddhism and Sinhala/Buddhists.

      When you are ready on a future date to explain both I will be the first to hear/read your definitions and explanations. If those phrases do not mean anything please ignore me.

    Media should not provide opinion or facilitate bias opinion. But the media should hold the Government leaders responsible for not taking action against wrong doings such as Bond Scam, Prison Massacre, Bribery, Corruption, Rape and Commission taking of politicians. Lets see what the President and the Justice Minister going to do about the Prison Massacre report.

    Native Vedda: Why delay? Here is my answer. You gave me a very good “CLUE” that word “CHAMPIONS”. Those “champions” will never define or tell the meaning or educate you. WHY? Have you ever thought about it? My friend, I term it as BUSINESS. You know, no business can succeed without a “PLAN” ; an “INVESTMENT” and deployment of HUMAN RESOURCES”. These “CHAMPIONS” you mentioned have the “PLAN”; “INVESTMENT” and the “HUMAN RESOURCES” very well ASSESSED the “POTENTIAL” embedded in RELIGION, ETHNICITY; CULTURE and they do BUSINESS for a very successful life. The PEOPLE get attracted by the “Commercials” and are ever ready to PURCHASE the “PRODUCTS” even though that is LETHAL. Cheers.
