President Fearful Of Hartal Cancels Scheduled Batticaloa Visit

A planned hartal in the Batticaloa town organized by the Tami National Alliance in protest for not releasing Tamil political prisoners in jail still, has forced President Maithripala Sirisena to cancel his scheduled visit to the East Coast city today. A source close to the Presidential Security Division told Colombo Telegraph that the State Intelligence officials had advised President Sirisena against making his scheduled trip to open the new cancer ward in the Teaching Hospital, ceremonially open the re-furbished court house and his visit to a Buddhist temple.

MaithripalaIt is reported that state intelligence officials had been scouting the East Coast for the past week to gather information pertaining to the safety and security of the President’s visit.

Over 250 law enforcement officers who were also brought in from Colombo to provide additional security for President Sirisena had left back for Colombo last evening.

The entire city of Batticaloa is expected to be a ghost town today with public and private sector companies, banks and schools all receiving instructions from the TNA to put up shop.

The Sirisena – Wickremesinghe led yahapalanaya government’s toying with the release of Tamil political prisoners is said to be the reason for this planned hartal.

Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne is scheduled to visit Batticaloa tomorrow instead to open the new cancer ward.

    Batalanada Ranil scooped up 104 seats with the help of the Vellalas and the Wahabis.

    How many seats Did Bodhi Sira win at the last Election?.

    So . How can Sira promise to change the constitution and have one member for each Electorate?

    Sira says he is ready to do a hara kiri in his current President’s gig?.

    If so how come he spent 180 Mil Yahapalana Rupees to join two top end properties in Cinnamon Gardens .

    All from our treasury dosh , most of which was borrowed from Ranil’s mate’s Perpetual Son in Law?.

    Do we have to read between the lines or is this Sumanasekera’s take correct?.

    Will Ranil pack his sleeping bag and move out ?.

    As Gammanpila said yesterday, a sperm produces a fully grown up baby in 10 months.

    What has Yahapalanaya done for nearly 11 months?.

    Besides borrowing 10 Billion Yahapalana Rupees at 12 95 % and 1.5 Billion in Green backs at 6.85 %?.

    Of course Sira has given the Ok to Ranil to import Hybrids for the new Suddas Adikaranaya A.K.A White man’s Special Court.

    But that hasn’t cost any money except the USD 800.thou which Bodhi Sira and , baby Sira and their minders spent at the Waldorf to invite the Hybrids….

    In real terms which are important for our inhabitants who are suffering under Yahapalanay, not even one Km of extra roads to show for these borrowings which fortunately Ranil’s supporters have to pay back.

    Venerable Sobitha didn’t call his disciple Ranil to his death bed . Did he ?.

    Wonder whether Bodhi Sira got a call?..

      “most of which was borrowed”and 1.5 Billion in Green backs at 6.85 %?.””

      In real terms which are important for our inhabitants who are suffering “”

      Borrowed borrowed Liar liar Sumane liar.

      $1.5 billion was a Swap for SLR by Hindian Government to tweak the SLR.

        Mate, you got it all mixed up.

        Even with Hindian swap, our FX reserves have dropped to 6 Billion Green backs,

        USD 1.5 Billion Sovereign Bond issue was to service Yahapalana borrowings .

        It was over subscribed by several times.

        It must be your Diaspora mates in New Jersey, who get Jack shit for their savings in the US.

        Wonder whether Ranil’s mate’s Perpetual SIL put in a bid too, in the over subscribed bracket…

          “It was over subscribed by several times.”

          Doesn’t it show the investors have confidence in the government and its economic policies?

          “It must be your Diaspora mates in New Jersey, who get Jack shit for their savings in the US.”

          Does Sri Lankan investment laws proscribe Diaspora inward investments? Is it MR’s law that favours only China Man’s investment? In a globalised world Dollars/Pounds/Euro know no bounds, and all investments are race, country, gender,region, religion, colour ……….. blind as long as it is risk free and bears higher yield.

          Please go away, read up on modern economics, think about it, come back and type something sensible.

            Dear Native,

            “Diaspora Inward Investments” WOW….We know how it worked to Develop our Motherland for three decades.

            Sure, Sure..Those funds came in Dollars, Pounds Kronars and even Dutch Shillings..

            Your Inward Investors must be over the moon.,

            Now Yahapalana Mahendran is giving them 7 Percent return, so that they can recoup their losses quickly.

            And no risk to the Capital unlike the NASDAQ or the DowJones.

            BTW, did your read Economics at Pirahaparan’s LTTE Uni in Killinocchi?..

              Don’t you think 7% is a reasonable return for the investors than the 10 to 20% commission that the country suffered in the bad old days?

              “Sure, Sure..Those funds came in Dollars, Pounds Kronars and even Dutch Shillings..”

              Were you the bag man for the diaspora? What was your cut?

        You might say that there are no Tamils in Srilanka and they are members of LTTE terrorists.
        I would say all Sinhalese are murderers who killed Tamils for last 65 years which is 100&% true.

    Inknow personally one hostage who tried to go to Canada illegally but stopped at Malaysia and sent back. He is hled as hostage under PTA for last 10 years. Is not he a hostage by state terrorist

    The president appears to have been purposely given wrong information so
    as to cancel his visit to Batticaloa.
    All protests in Batticaloa have been peaceful, because the army and police are mostly absent during them, at the venues.

    Boru Sira (ask me why I call him Boru Sira later) is getting tied up in knots. He should release the Tamil political prisoners forthwith. There is no justification for holding them in prison other than Yama Rajjuruwo of Yamapalanaya is enjoying inflicting pain. All the top terrorists and murderers are walking free with the blessing of the previous government in continuation by Boru Sira and these hapless men without any charge are being held indefinitely. If you have evidence charge them or let them go now.
