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.

    Furst he should return all the national assets, and graft he, his siblings, sons and family members had usurped and banked in foreign banks and in the Islands. Make a confession to all his excesses. Only after that MS should consider a pardon. RW is the stick in the mud, and would be willing to let go of his former paymaster.

      “Furst he should return all the national assets, and graft he, his siblings, sons and family members had usurped and banked in foreign banks and in the Islands.”

      Remember the gold and cash that Gota looted from VP’s Fort Knox in Vanni which belong to people, and should duly be returned to them if ownership can be established.

      All unidentified cash and gold should be invested in a fund and used for the sole purpose of educating the poor and the vulnerable.

    Ok, how about a Hail Mary Pass to MR et al.

    Return the money, you so liberally took from the state and we will let you live in peace in retirement.

    No more contesting electorally ( you should have never done it ).

    Your children can contest.

    This doesn’t apply to the Murder Accusations leveled against your team. They have to answer to the courts.

    Take it or leave it.

      Vishvajith,

      I think we should set an example. Once and for all.

      Children should not allowed to contest either. Both Namal Raja & Yo Baba have serious criminal allegations against them. I am wondering why they are not remanded like poor Sajin Vaas, the former baggage boy.

      How about defeated King’s uneducated cousins, extended family members & friends? Who were dubious diplomats in such crucial capitals like Washington or Moscow. Who were Directors, Chairmen etc in state companies, that they milked dry. These are all massive crimes against this country. Must be punished.

      Cheers!

    Mahinda Rajapakse’s decision to quit politics will be received with
    relief and satisfaction by a very large number of Sri Lankans in the
    four corners of the Island. But can the man be taken at his word?

    He cannot run away from the fact he is accountable for the many allegations of thievery by him and his immediate family members. He cannot use his so called offer of retirement as quid pro quo for the many charges against him and his siblings. CBK puts this best “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” It is time a bunch of crooks in high political life are arrested, jailed and their loot recovered – under full national publicity so that the country settles down for a better culture from aspiring political leaders at least in the immediate future.

    How pathetic. What an insult to Sri Lanka’s highest office.

    One may call them mafia. Though, they are starting to look like stand-up comedians rather.

    Endless visits to FCID, BC etc. are a bit fishy. There is a little too much questioning going on. Looks like a farce to me.

    If you steal two coconuts to survive hunger, Police will take you in. Then beat you senseless overnight.

    However, Rajapassa clan members are hanging around. No worries. Driving around in 4WD vehicles. Funded by those who steal coconuts. Due to hunger.

    Cheers!

    Mahinda would like to invoke blessings of MY3 to get out of the different soups they are all in!!! However, Maithripala nor Ranil should abuse their powers to rescue them on any agreement!

    Yahapalanaya or true demcocracy means no one is beyond the law of the country!!

    I mentioned the TRUTH of meeting the President Mr. Sirisena on several occasions and also the numerous telephone calls that were taken by him. He is now sitting on a “hot tin roof” and it is getting hotter and hotter. He will also abandon all his “goons” when the time comes to answer for them too. Yet, I still do not trust Ranil, because he owes so much to him for his survival during the time he was the Leader of the Opposition. Why few months time and waited for his sisters to advise? If he was careful and able to see what was in stock for the future, the “Foursome” (Wimal,Vasu,Gammanpita & Dinesh)who initiated that “Nugegoda Street Drama” would have been “KICKED” out in the first place and sought the advice of the close friends and listened to sound advice of the long standing SLFP members. He suffered heavily from his own EGO and according to Buddhist teachings it was “SAKKAYA DITTHI” (Personality Belief). I do not know how and why any of the Buddhist Monks who received him in those temples he visited prior to the Parliamentary elections did not advise him of this FIRST of the TEN “FETTERS” that brings the total downfall of ones personality and character. In short, he DUG HIS OWN GRAVE. To the family: You too FAILED him, because you all were not HONOUST to yourself. You all SUCKED the last ounce of blood of him. Can you SAVE him? I doubt it very much.

    Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa

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

    Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa, your sisters are loving you more than the Shills, White-Washers and Cronies who want you to be in politics, so that continue to fleece the people.

    You should have listened to Amarasiri after you lost on January 8, 2015, to Retire and Fish in the Indian Ocean.

    “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.”

    So, this is the real reason why you did not want to Retire and Fish in the Indian Ocean.

    People voted not once but twice for good governance. One of the main ingredients of good governance is allowing the law enforcement to function without interference and hindrance.

    So its MR choice to continue or withdraw from politics that should have nothing to do with the investigations currently being carried on or anything that might come-up in the future. NO ONE SHOULD BE ABOVE THE LAW.

      Ramona,

      Please give over! What this means is that he never takes responsibility! He came back into politics because people asked him to; he is going to retire because his sisters have asked him to! He must think that Sri Lankans are complete muppets.

      MR is corrupt to the core; he is totally obstinate, unscrupulous, self-centred, and king-like character. If such a person is a patriot in your eyes, you really need your head examined. You are devoid of intelligence to judge people and decipher information. You come on these forums and write incoherent nonsense!

        BI,

        What you call incoherent nonsense, is my patriotism and loyalty towards my fellow countrymen, love for the Motherland and the masses of Sinhalese (and Tamils) that inhabit our shores. I do not mind being ridiculed on this forum, and am proud to be one of the few who can articulate some support for the struggling people of Sri Lanka who have little voice in a forum such as this.

        Rajapaksa stood for the rights of the masses. Anything less than that and we have to kiss goodbye to Lankan history and heritage (of both races). Exactly what the British wanted, as they tried to control and demean especially the Sinhala spirit. They have Sri Lanka right where they want it now via Sinhala elite that cares none for its own people.

        I remember Christianne Amanpour of CNN while starting an interview of GW bush ..educated him on how to pronounce IRAN the country of her birth.. She said…. MR President my country of birth is IRAN as in E-RAN not as in I RAN a mile… coz that dumb clown didnt know how to pronounce…

        LOL @ the foremost patriot who PLUNDERED the national wealth..along with his siblings sons and relatives…. IF MR is considered the foremost patriot, what would anyone call SF? the architect behind the war victory…

          Snowden Edward Asange,

          Rajapaksa didn’t do anything that the US Federal Reserve isn’t already doing…..it’s all to do with money creation. If all these supposed “plundering of the national wealth” was left to mature – hedge funds and money laundering schemes and others, – Sri Lanka would have had an even higher GDP than previous years. It’s all a matter of perception.

          Nothing is clean in a capitalistic society. That is why I have showing support for a socialist/communist society, where one cannot create money out of thin air, at the expense of another place or country, but out of true value of country-worth – tough, but honorable, and worth it for country sustenance.

          We don’t need elites making money within their own circles, and off the backs of the masses(and flying to the West to indulge in the Western experience), and handing scraps to the masses (of both races).

          Guess with the US alliance, UNP can rest easy as the US feds will take care of all those gritty “plundering” details at the expense of China and allies.

          Guess it’s good that UNP and Ranil took over, otherwise we would have had the US and allies circling our heads. But it’s good if Rajapaksa was let in a bit too (deputy PM?), to handle some trade with China. Best that we don’t go with too much with any one side, but form national government and do what is best for the country (minus an Indian land-bridge).

    When one has ruled as Mahinda did, with his family and cronies abusing power MR has reasons to be afraid of. Mahinda should be made to face the music. If I was the president, MR will end in The Hague. MR is a power hungry corrupt political dictator there should be no sympathy or mercy.

    If MaRa’s precondition is “protection from current President Maithripala Sirisena for himself and (for) his sons and siblings . . .”, then that should be subject to negotiation.

    There has to be compromise in politics, but if it turns out that lots of murders, billions in swindlings, and (according to Tamil Sources) serious attempts at genocide, are what are to be swept under carpets, then there can be no blanket forgetting.

    If this is granted, then it’ll mean that leaders do indeed co-operate to protect one another, while the hoi-poloi has to face harassment all the time.
