    What does the post of “Parliamentary Secretary at the Prime Minister’s office” entail in terms of subjects to be handled, duties and responsibilities, and perks and benefits?

    Does this mean, that the Marxisit/Trotskite LSSP “majority group” leader Dr.Jayampathy Wickramaratne will be serving on the staff of neo-liberal Ranil Wickrmesinghe’s office staff. Isn’t he a Memebr of Parliament? Does this mean his party has joined the UNP? Do the members of his party group approve him taking up this appointment? I hope they issue a statement clarifying matters to the public.

    Dr. J. Wickremaratne had been a pain in the neck for the govt. because
    he was attacking everything what was wrong with Govt. administration, relentlessly,so a position was created at people expense to silence him. Wonder why a ministerial position was not given to him earlier as he is lawyer, educated and a capable man,compared to some school drop outs in the cabinet.

    If the govt. is going to spend people’s money to silence critics, by
    offering lucrative positions,where will we end up financially,is the
    question to be answered by the duo.

    Leftists, Marxists or whatever are a dime a dozen in Sri Lanka with an equally wavering codes of honour. They will take the first opportunity to flirt with their opposites should it bring some personal pecuniary benefit. Look what a sorry figure Vasudeva Nanayakkara is cutting these days. I am still to see a real politician of mettle either right or left emerge in Sri Lanka. All so far are louts not worthy of affixing any label other than weak, inept and corrupt and dangerous to boot.

    Anyone knows what his compensation package is like. Govt. can increase the VAT by another 1% and make up for the cost.

    This is a smart way to silence critics better than the white van culture.

    There is sinhala stage drama in Sri Lanka titled “Horu Samaga Heluwen”(Naked with Thieves). Now, we can slightly modify that title as “Ranil Samaga Heluwen”(Naked with Ranil). So, no one in the Yahapalanaya will have legitimacy to blame Vasudeva for his subservience of the left for racism and totalitarianism of the Rajapaksa camp. Jayampathi has sold us all in the left such cold bloodedly.
