My Sisters Are Forcing Me To Retire From Politics, I Will Resign In Three Months: MR Tells MS

Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa who met President Maithripala Sirisena at the President’s house three days ago, informed him that he will be quitting politics for good in the next three months, as his two sisters have advised him to do so, Colombo Telegraph reliably learns.

However on the pretext of naming his sisters Preethi and Gandhini’s demands, the former President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s modus operandi is to seek protection from current President Maithripala Sirisena for himself and that of his sons and siblings a source close to Champika Ranawaka told Colombo Telegraph.

The FCID and the Bribery Commission resumed their hunt on members of the former Rajapaksa regime the day following the general elections for the acts of abuse of power, forgery, murder, fraud, corruption and malpractices during their rule of self reigned power.

The Presidential Commission of Inquiry also grilled the former Defense Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa for over five hours last Monday, over allegations of misusing state funds and using personnel of the state-owned security firm, Rakna Arakshaka Lanka Limited (RALL) for the presidential election campaign.

Gotabaya Rajapaksa had blurted that his older brother’s actions and continued attempts at clinging onto power is endangering himself and that of his sons Namal and Yoshitha.

“The Rajapksa’s openly swindled and ran the country in a true mafia style family operation and there is no way that they are going to get away from this” a source close to Chandrika Kumaratunga went on to tell Colombo Telegraph.

    Advice from Kenny Rogers

    He said, “If you’re gonna play the game, boy
    You gotta learn to play it right

    You’ve got to know when to hold ’em
    Know when to fold ’em
    Know when to walk away
    And know when to run
    You never count your money
    When you’re sittin’ at the table
    There’ll be time enough for countin’
    When the dealin’s done

    Every gambler knows
    That the secret to survivin’
    Is knowin’ what to throw away
    And knowin’ what to keep
    ‘Cause every hand’s a winner
    And every hand’s a loser
    And the best that you can hope for is to die
    in your sleep

    Mr.MR, just out of curiosity, Where did these sisters crop up to advice you all of a sudden?

    If your sisters were there all the time then it is a pity that you did not follow their advice when you called for the presidential elections on January 8th which, you unfortunately lost. Perhaps they told you to retire then but you
    trashed their advice and went onto contest out of greed and though you won your seat in Kurunegala at the cost of foolish public sympathy you slid down the shit
    pipe into more unpopularity. Your political career has arguably ended.

    Now listen more to the advice of your sisters and you would perhaps be a better man.

    He considers every women his sisters,mothers except his wife. It appears, the way things are moving in the yahapalanaya government Mahinda mama is more truthful.

    Time to check their bank accounts and assets too

    Don’t expect to just retire and enjoy all the loot. You and your siblings and sons have committed so many crimes that have to be investigated and punished.

    The hidden agenda behind Mahinda Rajapakse (and family, hopefully) leaving politics, is time to spend their ill-gotten gains. The tsunami money alone would take more than a lifetime to spend.

    You should’ve retired in 2010. If it happened the country would’ve been heading towards great success with democratic values.

    It is a National Disgrace when a former President does not even have the emotional intelligence to make a personal decision on when to go. What a pathetic life to live to 69 and not be able to make a personal decision. and the people of SL put their future in such a character

    Go with a bit of dignity man instead of like a defeated dog with his tail tucked be this legs.

    Grow the balls to at least say u have made a decision rather than your sisters.

    Mahinda Rajapaksa s greediness for power is a very big obstacle for his sons and siblings.

    His henchmen like Wimal Dinesh Vasu have taken him on a slippery road and straight to hell and now he is trying to come out of it.

    What a shame ,for a ex president of Srilanka, instead of going home after the peoples rejection ,through greed and bad advise Mara is suffering ,thinking how to extricate himself and his children and brothers from the mess they have created and fallen into.

    That is Karma , he has to undergo these punishments ,for what he did to the Muslims ,Tamils And even the Sinhalese.

    Seems to be suffering from a serious psychological breakdown of sorts. Thinking I am the best, I am the fairest, I am the king got to eat into his ego. Like mirror mirror on the wall who’s the fairest of them all? his fall is even more rapid than CBK’s fall from grace in the public eye. Even though millions still love him and will always appreciate him for ending the war; he overeached. That is the end. Retire at least now so you do not lose the respect people have for you for giving brave political leadership and withstanding pressure and bringing US, India and China together to help you defeat Tamil Tiger terrorists. What happened after 2010 was grossly inappropriate for a modern democracy. Sir you became like Gadaffi, Mugabe combined.

    Suddenly MaRa had discovered sisters he should obey. We should ask the sisters what they thought of MaRa. Anyone who could rob from the innocent tsunami victims would not have spared his sisters either.
