Official King Song: Sirisena Approved The Song And Now He Lies

President Maithripala Sirisena is lying about the song released on the occasion of the first anniversary of him assuming office seeking to promote himself as some kind of modern-day reincarnation of King Parakramabahu the Great, Colombo Telegraph can reveal today.

MS 7  copySirisena had checked the script and listened to the song prior to its broadcast. The song was broadcast across all state-run broadcasters. In the face of growing public criticism the video of President Sirisena’s Official Song for 2016, has been removed from You Tube without any reason being offered.

Issuing a statement today President’s Secretary P.B. Abeykoon said “The song has been played by some social networking websites without the permission of the President as well as the Presidential Secretariat”

But the pictures posted by its producer Dr. Arosha Fernando, proved that it was broadcast via state-run ITN.

MS 6The producer of the song, senior consultant at Telecommunications Regulatory Commission of Sri Lanka, Arosha Fernando has now deleted all pictures from his Facebook page. But Colombo Telegraph had managed to secure copies prior to its deletion.

President’s Secretary P.B. Abeykoon today said that there was no official song released by the President’s Secretariat or other responsible entities to mark the one year anniversary of democratic governance under the leadership of President Maithripala Sirisena.

But Arosha Fernando’s posts say the song is official.

“President Sirisena listened and approved the song on December 11, 2015 and the producer had posted a picture on his Facebook page” sources closed to President’s Secretariat told Colombo Telegraph. After the approval Fernando and his crew went to Polonnaruwa on January 2nd, 2016 for the shooting of the visuals.

    Ok so here is the thing.

    Just because the president is seen in a photograph with the producers (who are also the heads of a department under him) and the song is made by someone known by him, it doesnt at all mean it was done officially.

    If CT has any proof that this song was officially sanctioned by the President, PMD or Presidential Secretariat, show it rather than putting up a few pictures of the two together and citing an anonymous source.

    This is nothing more than just gossip news and its a disgrace!

      This president is worse than MR because he is a gamaya who has not seen the world. He is still in the pre historic era and anyone can take him up the murnga tree. Arosha is a big fake. Someone needs to check how he calls himself Dr Arosha? We also had Dr Mervin Silva.

      Josh, better speakl the truth instead of bashing CT. Your upset because your ‘role model’ president who portrayed himself as very much down to earth human being prior to the run up to the prezi polls, has done a full U-turn. Accept the fact that this man is worse than MR – almost all aspects of administration.

    RE:Official King Song: Sirisena Approved The Song And Now He Lies

    Gamarala Approved the Song. Now Gamarala lies? Why second thoughts on becoming Maha Parakrama Bahu?

    Well, Gamarala must be a Sinhala Buddhist. Looks like Monk Mahanama of Mahawansa fame has taught the Sinhala Buddhists Well.

    Have you heard of the Sunday night Sil? Listen to Pirith and Bana based on the Enlightened Buddha’s teachings, and then become a Traitor to Buddha, by carrying out Monday Night Kills?

    BBS Ganasara and Company, funded by Norway, Israelis and the Christian Fundamentalist West, knows this well.

    Is this a characteristic of the Para-Sinhala “Buddhists” in the Land of Native Veddah Aethho? Just going by the observations of the data.

    “Vanity” is a deadly mental illness, endemic among politicians.
    Any man who successfully withstands its ravages will become leader of even nations.
    Its onset is triggered in those who did not even think of it, by sycophants who profit by it.
    Sirisena who started as a humble politician, has now become a victim.

    Earlier, songs about Mahinda Rajapakse – good and bad, were available in the social media – MR believed those which praised him, and this led to his downfall.

    Sirisena, beware.

      Intoxication of power is called the” HUBRIS SYNDROME”. Gamarala is not the first person who went nuts because of power. Hitler, Rajapakse , Blair,Bush ect are classic examples of persons who were intoxicated by by the power they had.

        What about JR Jayawardene who started his regime saying only thing he could not do was to transforming a male to a female and vise-versa. Changed the capital from Colombo to Sri Jayawardhanapura (there was no area by the name of Sri jayawardhanapura by then or even now) to take his name to future. His henchmen started a free magazine by the name of ” Desathiya” to blow trumpte for him in the same manner like this. So many TV programs during annual celebrations. However After being in power for 11 years he had to say People have to take care of their own security.
        Needless to talk about RP

    CT you are a typical example of the saying “Freedom of the Wild Ass” now that journalists have a licence to say any thing and everything they want to say without any fear of being taken to task. Would you have dared to write all this crap that you have been coming up with as of late, during the previous regime? Show some bloody responsibility in your reporting and the WAY you report,man. You have very soon forgotten the treatment you received at the hands of the earlier government.

      Dear Eldorado,

      I do not know how long you aee reading CT, but CT was thr mist widely read and the ONLY site that went ALL OUT against the Rajspaksas till their very last leg. And some of us columnists put our lives on the line too. I personally used to get threatening calls from anonymous numbers. As a matter of fact, CT set the stage & momentum for others to rise up which led to the change of governments.

        haha Mohammad Fazl did you put your life on the line and get threatening calls during MR’s regime or a few months back for writing that one heck of a shit article?

        Good to know that you still haven’t changed your ideology of blaming the victim.

        Cheers!

    Whether Prez MS lies or not two characters portrayed in songs “dedicated” to Prez MS and former Prez MR are worthy of comparison. “Me apey minihek” (This is one of our men)and “Maharajanani” (Your Majesty the King). The dress code of characters acting in the song for Prez MS is of royal ancestry and therefore in a background of royal ancestry “our man” is meant to be a person of a royal family which reigned during Polonnaruwa period. In the other song the singer is dressed as a royal princess or a royal concubine but Giruwa Pattu was never a kingdom or a fief.

    President MS,notwithstanding his long years in Politics has still to learn a few tricks!.
    In this instance,he has been caught more or less,with his pants down.
    He may have been saved from his Enemies,but not delivered from his friends.

    Any official production release should be done by the client. Not the producer.

    If the client does not like the final Crain.. he or she can stay without releasing it.

    The responsibility of producer stops at end off production. Release of client items on personal social media pages is unethical. Specially without client approval to publish on any platform.

    This is what we did not want to see from MS.Is he feeling the pressure of the post.Or is he feeling intimidated by Ranil and other Royalist high fight clan.What is wrong with him.I sense a feeling of bit loss in him.He has no party to back him.Apart from few he cannot trust majority around him as well.
    My opinion would be” to be himself” and concentrate on the tasks entrusted on him .His strength should be general public.They don’t need these silly songs to tell them you have Royal ancestry which is absurd.Prople have given you the mandate to do the job and King Parakumba do need to give reminders.
    People have burning issues Maithri.You cannot play fool at this juncture.You have made some good moves and the change is encouraging.You should act straight and honest.That is your strength.Otherwise you are directly playing into the hands of opportunists who surrounds you and again and again we will be the victims.
    We hope have at least little bit more intelligence than MR.

    What a song and dance by CT about a fart-sized triviality.

    Let’s take the worst case. MS encouraged and approved the song going public. Then people told him it was stupid and he ordered its deletion. Of course he makes some lame excuse.

    So what’s the big deal? By how much is the country’s GDP going to fall?
    Grow up CT!

      Golding, I guess you don’t care if the president is a liar and hypocrite, but many of us who voted for him are really sad at his disappointing actions (which I don’t have to repeat).

      Your “fart sized triviality” just displays your willingness to put up with his lies and deception, so take your own advice, practice what you preach and “grow up”!

        with all respect to you, he is the only prez who says, that he COULD agreew to relinquish his power. He did it… to the manner no body else did. This allowed Parliament to succeed amendments. is this a small task in a parliament of our kind ?

        besides, Why do you guys expect 100% cleanlinesss from him ? Please think before leap men. At the time, President MR was abusing it to core – you said nothing and stayed mum being sealed off your both orifices. Why ? Just to criticise this way is no fair at all.
        Rascals did all harm to all folks rather than doing the good- there you guys, had no choice.
        Today choice is given but you guys behave as if monkeys would do the job.
        shame on you… better srilanken will never be dawn, your idiotic thinking would not shift to paradigm

    Is our Yahapalana Prez a Liar?..

    He is more like a Hybrid..

    He tells the truth to Batalanda PM, UNP London, Vellala Sambandan , Suren Surendran ,Bedouin Prince, Uncle Kerry and Cameron.

    But he lies to the Dalits and their Maha Sanga big time..

    President Sirisena brought us hope when people of SL elected him in place of Rajapakse. However, since he becoming the President all his actions have been almost similar to that of Rajapakse. He appointed those who lost their seats in UPFA back under the “Pinata Seat” system. The “Horu” he promised to catch have not been caught and most of them are now in his cabinet. His Cabinet is not 30 but many more than 30, bigger than Rajapakse cabinet. He appoints political persons for diplomatic positions. He does not know if he is a SLFP candidate, or UPFA candidate or UNP candidate or an “achcharu” candidate. SL is going down the tube, we all thought he is going to change the country. I personally thought he had the guts and backbone to go against Rajapakse, but now I have changed my view that he does not have the guts nor the backbone to go against the “Horas”. Do we need a President like him?

    Just like in the case of MR, My3 is also squandering the trust the people placed in him. He was made the president by the people who expected that he will do what he said he will do. Since assuming office he has proved to be quite another person – the usual utterly weak, inept Sri Lankan politician who is eternally consumed by visions of grandeur, a slave to kow- towing, nepotistic and shit scared of other politicians. My3’s poor calibre is illustrated well in this instance – who on earth would trust the management of his image by a man such as Dr Arosha Fernando. Doctor of what?? Look at the picture – the bloke is a dimwit as events have proven to be.

    According to the history of Sri Lanka King Parakramabahu had done a huge amount of work for the country whereas the present president, Parakramabahu Sirisena, hasn’t fulfilled any of his promises yet which shows how incapable the present day Parakramabahu is. What S.B.Dissanayake said about Sirisena before 8th January 2015 seems exactly right.

    This is Sri Lanka!
    Even if JVP comes into power, they too will do the same thing. We should learn how to live with these nonsense. Good that Sobitha thero is no longer there to see these ” Raja Katha”.
    The moment MS appointed his brother as Chairman of the Telecom, I knew this king is not second his predecessor.

    The guy himself(Arosha De Silva) says he showed and he got the approval. If it is a hit job(as it intended to be) why would he say otherwise. How did we know the version he saw had all the things they included in the video. It very well be that he was shown and gotten the approval for something else. Staunch MR fans are died in wool MR fans and hates MS so we are to believe this Torjan Horse’s word. It is his word against the Presidents word. In his FB comment he can say anything. Are we to believe the guy because he says so. I don’t think MS is that type of a Narcissistic personality. We had a Dr Yasanath Bandara disgraced Sobitha thero upon his death via his FB(due to his undying loyalty to MR) this is another Dr who is a die hard fan of Mr, so they would say anything to hit MS. as they were so sad they their Pet MR lost, and they look for revenge in every thing they could do. I’d rather not believe this sycophant.

    Guys don’t take it to heart, did you really expect Gamarala to be an upright man who puts the national interest above his own? He is a rotter like all our politicians in this Kuveni cursed island.

      You should be a very pessimistic guy of the country.

      Were you blind, to have missed the way Gamarala worked on the progress of getting them passed last year. Either you are deaf or blind… ..not to have grasped them.

      Anyways, balligeputha dominated srilanka will never rise their head so long the lkind of guys are th emajority. My3 AND RW cant iron out all the mess left by your ilk and the MR led higher courrption scandals.

    Even if he did see it before it was released its much better that he acknowledges that it was an error in judgement as opposed to bask in it’s glory despite the views of the people. That itself is in stark contrast to the past. So why argue further?? As for CT, half truths supported with images and quotes that can seem to make the story come true in the eyes of the reader may be clever reporting but it cant be labelled as honest.

    Hello People, what a right hoo-ha over nothing.

    I’ve heard Mr President sing, NO big shakes. I actually put away the bra I was planning to throw (NOT mine but one I bought from 2nd Cross street for the sole purpose of joining the latest fad).

    Mr President will be pleased to know that it is very unlikely he will have a sweet Sri Lankan damsel jump up on stage to steal his kisses.

    Phew! Mr President, you can safely put away that maduvalige for now.
