President Keeps Law And Order Ministry Under Him As UNP Plans Continuous Protests

While the United National Party is planning to continue its fight against the prorogation of Parliament and the appointment of a new Prime Minister, President Maithripala Sirisena has decided to keep the Ministry of Law and Order under him.

Taking part in a political discussion on a private TV channel, a short while ago, UPFA MP Wimal Weerawansa said the President had decided to keep the Law and Order Ministry, which overlooks the Police, under his purview.

This comes in the wake of Sirisena’s accusations that the Police did not properly investigate into the alleged conspiracy to assassinate him in which, the President said, a UNP Cabinet minister was also involved.

Meanwhile, UNP Parliamentary group members Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe, Wasantha Senanayake, Suresh Vadivel took oaths in their new positions today while Ananda Aluthgamage, who was the first UNP MPs to offer support to Rajapaksa, also received a deputy minister’s post.

The new Cabinet members appointed today are as follows,

Mahinda Rajapaksa: Minister of Finance and Economic Affairs.

Nimal Siripala de Silva: Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation.

Dr. Sarath Amunugama: Minister of Foreign Affairs

Mahinda Samarasinghe: Minister of Ports and Shipping

Mahinda Amaraweera: Minister of Agriculture

Ranjith Siyambalapitiya: Minister of Power and Renewable Energy

Dr. Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe: Minister of Education and Higher Education

Wijith Wijayamuni Zoysa: Minister of Fisheries & Aquatic Resources Development and Rural Economic Affairs

Faiszer Musthapha: Minister of Provincial Councils, Local Government, and Sports

Douglas Devananda: Minister of Resettlement, Rehabilitation, Northern Development, & Hindu Religious Affairs

Arumugam Thondaman: Minister of Hill Country New Villages, Infrastructure and Community Development.

Vasantha Senanayake: Minister of Tourism and Wildlife

Suresh Vadivel: State Minister of Plantation Industries

Ananda Aluthgamage: Deputy Minister of Tourism and Wildlife.

        Within the next few days if the parliament decided strip/grab the post of Premiership from the crook and war criminal will we see the same ugly faces sitting along with Ranil as if they had no part in the swearing ceremony?

        Do you still believe these little islanders really need freedom, independence, sovereignty, …………………. clothes, a speaker, a president, prime minister, court, judges and their wigs,

          Native,

          Well , here’s another fine mess you’ve gotten me into!

          “clothes, a speaker, a president, prime minister, court, judges and their wigs” …………………. those were forced on us; we had no choice.

          But the behaviour is quintessentially ours :))

          I cross the road when I see another Lankan ………… it’s either me or him/her ……………. hardly a great choice ……….. but you know who I’ll choose every time ………..

          Dear Native,

          You should worship Mr Pirahaparan for helping you to get Asylum. and lead a comfy Life…
          Anyway that is a different story..

          Our Lankans, the great majority who are the poor rural Sinhala Buddhists and Catholics do not want to live as second class citizens , along side the UNP sucking Colombo Elite , Anglicans and the Vellalas who will be in bed with rich Hindians.. That is ETCA Beds of course.

          If Dr Ranil was allowed to stay till XMas ,he would have not only signed the ETCA..
          Dr Ranil would have also created his Land Bank, by selling all our National Lands to Foreigners, including the Diasporians who financed Mr Pirahaparan..

          Just imagine how happy your Vellala Buddies, Mr Sampathar and the Kid would have been with Dr Ranil’s Land Bank owned by Foreigners..

          What a nice way to get rid of the poor Sinhala settlers along the Mahavali in the North and the East as the Vellalas always wanted…
          And the Vellala Kid Abram publicly stated just before Dr Ranil got the Ass…

          Sovereignty and Independence mean jack shit if you have only Two and a Half Dollars a day to feed the Missus and the Kids.
          Think about it mate
          This is the case with the great majority of the inhabitants, while Dr Ranil sucking Elite and their mates are busting Hundreds of Thousands even on Birthday Bashes at the Shangri La and the Cinnamon Grand..

          BTW, Have you been to a Bar in Shangri La?… .

            Being MR’s chief b***s carrier you should know he is not only eternally grateful to VP (the psychopath) for winning two elections and a war but regret carrying out Hindian’s order to bury him alive in Mullivaaikkal. The question still remains unanswered is that did your guardian gods MR, GR, SF, …………and many single handed commanders meet him alive before his burial along with Vaddukottai resolution.

            You and your fellow bigots and racists benefited from VP, made new money, new status, free travel, ……………. …………….. probably regret his demise when elections are around, new large contracts are finalised, diplomatic postings are withdrawn, ………….. etc, for MR clan and its money making activities VP’s absence has made huge hole in every sense of wealth creation. –
            In your part you find inward cash flow is trickling to bare minimum.

            Therefore you need VP desperately, you need a humongous villain, you need to revive the horrors of VP’s podian army, you need show how ghastly VP was (no doubt he was) in order portray your guardian gods being all powerful, ……… won a war with huge difficulties, ……… one hand tied to the back and the other carrying UN human right charter, freeing 300,000 kidnapped victims, …………..

            Build up included MR being
            worthy son of Don Alwin (Christian Rajapaksa)
            favorite child of Weeraketiya
            affectionate younger brother of Chamal
            commander in chief of the army of the devas
            destroyer of asuras (bata wearing baby brigade)
            husband of Shiranthi, ????

            My apologies, I am confused MR with god Skantha.
            Now you are saying I benefited from VP.
            I am a citizen of Sri Lanka (whatever that maybe)

        If you are still reading this ………….. get young MPs like Ranjan, Harin (people who have some credibility still left :)) ) to go out and repeat ad-nauseam ………… that the Rajapakses did this to escape the special courts; the time was running out for them.

        You don’t need to teach anew how to do it ……….. there’s a great example anyone can follow ……….. how they kept repeating “bond-scam”
        _
        you have to get this out there and quick ……… gotta win the propaganda war ……….. Ranil’s speech was good and strong but he is lousy at propaganda ……….. so get Ranjan, Harin, Mangala and the rest out there

        There should be someone competent and talented in propaganda ( like Karl Rowe ) directing the effort by ……… handing out talking points every morning ……… and guiding the effort

      I was over the moon at first.
      Then I learnt the Parliament is prorogued which is an insult to the Co-PM Hon. MR, as it reminds of an era of suppression, intimidation and corruption (according to “grapevine telegraph” rapid horsetrading is going on right now.) I thought JO has come a long way. The moment they sensed the power, their true colours came to surface.
      I still believe Maithri has betrayed Mahinda.
      Otherwise, this whole episode could have done in an honourable way.

          I should be very happy if the change of sides (going back to SLFP) initiated BY MR ,not by Maithri and in the open, not through a constitutional coup.
          I don’t like to see him under obligation to Maithri and the SLFP faction (MS) who supported Ranil and ALL his treachery against the country for the last 4 years.
          The slave government will never be forgiven for their betrayal to the country.
          I don’t want to see them back in the Parliament in 2020.
          I can’t stand Mahinda whitewashing Maithri and his coolies who are the biggest traitors who abused people’s mandate for UPFA in August 2015.

    what type of president is this? He comes from a farming family from a village and we expected him to behave with some sense of humour, manners and civility. Yet, he looks that he is greedy for power and he is doing all these crafty politics just in expectation for his nomination for next term. He must be dreaming to get that. First of all, MR & co family will never give him any more term. MR and family is not such a generous family to share power with him. After all, they think that they won the war.
    Maithri is behaving in a dictatorial manner that Sri Lanka ever seen. For him, the seat of power is more important that rule of law in Sri Lanka..May God protect Sri Lanka. If something goes wrong now, Sri Lanka will become like Somalia or Afghanistan or like some African countries: Once MR family is well established they will never leave power seat until MR dies … although there is a dispute between Goata & Mrs MR.
    UNP with all other parties should impeach M&S soon. they need to teach him a lesson.

      Western countries are going to impose a travel ban on MS, MR and all those with them. They can only go to rogue and failed states. If this situation is not reversed, I will not be surprised that they will impose economic sanctions and those who are rejoicing will have to search dust bins for food as what happened during 1970 to 1977. Another Syria in the making with foreign military intervention especially by India. I will not be surprised if MR and RW will get together and dispose MS by impeaching him.

        HI Edwin,
        did you read 19th Amendment.
        FAKE PM appointment is unconstitutional.
        I have read it and I find it the appointment is totally unconstitutional. They have not considered the paragraphs in 19th AMD.
        So, without being biased to anyone, Sirisena should have been blind to go for it.
        All what is taken up will have not impact.
        Entire world is looking at GAMARALAS autorcratic act.

          Hello Sam, I did not read it myself but listened to various people reading it and interpreting it on discussion programs on TV. Some say the whole thing is OK while others say it is not. Some also claim that the Sinhala and English versions are different.
          .
          The whole thing is like interpreting a religious book. Dafren Dafren people have Dafren Dafren ideas (as the Indians say) about what it says. Returning back to the 19th amendment, I am really surprised that such a simple thing can be interpreted in so many Dafren Dafren ways. I suppose it depends on the Dafren Dafren experts and his/her needs.
          .
          As an engineer, this impreciseness is something I hate. In engineering, we have a simple law called Ohm’s Law which says: Voltage drop (V) across a resistance of R –ohms carrying a current of I Amperes is given by V = IR. Very few engineers would interpret this in the wrong way. Whether he is a Sinhalese or a British, V = IR is V = IR.
          .
          In the Block Buster Movie of the yester-year My Fair Lady, the girl whom the man loves secretly, acts in ways that that he finds weird. So, in the final line of one of the songs he sings, “Why can’t a woman – be like a man?” In a similar vein, I would say, “why can’t the lawyers – be like engineers?’

            Some say you need to be a lawyer to understand. But if you hve a basic degree or some good knowledge on politics you may get it.
            Those interpret in favour of that being constitutional inclue GLP and several other men always walking after Rajapkshe men.
            None of them have studied it properly.

            http://slembassyusa.org/country_information_update/19th-amendment-to-the-constitution-of-sri-lanka/

            Please read it if you have got sometime, those who are educated should send the message across without being biased to any parties.
            It is totally on the protection of democratic values in this country. Besides, GONAGE WADE burwa baraganna is not included in the constitution.
            Please just listen to what Indian discuss about srilanken situation.
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yUPa6l1mOOc&t=823s

            Mr Rodrigo, what is being interprited by Local media about Rajapskshe to have added to Indians is totally the opposite. They in this discussion too, they the indian believe that Rajakshes promised 13 plus … at that time.
            I think lanken media are caught by Rajapkashe media mafia so that they are allowed to spread only in favour of them. Then only they can make a jana mathaya.
            They dont say that Ranil is very China man, or India man.. They the indians call RW as normal. But lanken press intrepret and make the janamathaya in favour of..
            I think Ranil is victim by lanken press:

            The Titanic was built by engineers, and Noah, an amateur, built the Ark. You know the results.
            But, seriously, it take much more brains to be an engineer than a lawyer. That’s why they can’t get such a simple thing as the 19th Amendment right. Or was it on purpose?

            Agreed, MR will learn from the mistakes of the past & will never let go of power once established & Sirisena has dug his own grave. MR is not going to trust Sirisena, who will be soon under 6 feet in the ground, at least, politically. It’s only a matter of time for Sirisena’ survival.

            MR will change the constitution by buying support from mercenary politicians (there is no shortage of them) & will be President for life with his siblings taking over when he is gone. The Rajapakse clan would be our Lord & Masters for the next couple of generations unless there is an uprising. Unfortunately, an uprising would lead to more chaos & anarchy as we have seen in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, etc. So better to nip it at the bud by impeaching these yobs now & do it democratically.

    This is golden opportunity for JVP to become a viable political force.. They have already revealed the political tricks of MS, MR and Ranil.
    I have not seen any political party that is so eloquent in their talks and speech like JVP members.

    4 forces of Sri Lanka must be vigilant today . They have protected the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Sri Lanka from LTTE. Now, they have moral duty to protect Sri Lanka from these corrupt 225 political crooks. LTTE might have occupied that the lands in North and East. We are thankful for all Sri Lankan forces to defeating LTTE and saving the country . Yet, today, M&S and MR robe people’s basic democratic right and they introducing some sort of dictatorial traditions with their unconstitutional behave?What is the difference between LTTE leader who tried to carve out part of Sri Lanka and M& S who is taking away basic human right of people. Democratic rights and rules of law must be protected .. 4 Sri Lankan forces are paid by public to protect their rights and their freedom…yet, M& S is trying to take away these rights from people … So, 4 forces should not behave like Egyptian armies rather they should stand with people to protect them ..
    It is not their duty to dance to the tunes of MR or M& S. it is not good for Sri Lanka at all.

    Three great betrayals seen within just 4 years:
    1. Ranil used Maithri to back-stab Mahinda.
    2. Maithri used Mahinda to back-stab Ranil.
    3. What is next?
    Mahinda using Ranil to back-stab Maithri? or
    Will Maithri take the knife and …….
    If this goes on, political back-stabbing will become a national sport in Sri Lanka. But a cheerless sport as the general public despise this type of politics no matter who does it.

      Champa what’s up with you? A few days ago you said that you were happiest and achieved your blogging objectives over the last few years when MR was brought back to power, and that you would be resting on your laurels and write no more. Fine, well done. But barely one hour passed you were back again writing, tweeting different messages like a battichhca/i hopping from branch to branch. No offence, but I am mildly curious as to what your heading is now; I am totally confused by your constantly changing message lines, given that I used to back you up when your messages were clear. Appreciate some clarifications. Ta!

        Yeah yeah, I know. There is a change and an explanation is necessary. I am typing in a hurry.
        To explain briefly, THE AFTERMATH of Mahinda’s swearing in, is NOT TO my liking.
        Yes I actually wanted to rest my pen when MR sworn in as the PM (which was long overdue) as I believed that everything would be fine.
        Then I had to stay back because they PROROGUED THE PARLIAMENT which is undemocratic.
        I expected to see after swearing in MR going to Parliament and making his official speech. It didn’t happen. Instead they prorogued the Parliament which is the highest organ which stands for democratic legitimacy of any country.
        Then I heard about the horsetrading.
        One thing I should make clear is, I am not ONLY FOR MAHINDA.
        I have given my independent opinion on various matters that are pertinent to my country and raised my voice to protect our national assets. Moreover, I fought for the rights of various people irrespective of party or colour.
        There is no need to raise my voice for Mahinda as he is in the Government now.
        But I can see that there could be various injustices for other people. Civil and political rights of ALL PEOPLE should be protected no matter which party they are in.
        If THIS Government is also engaged in wrongdoing (I saw something on page 2), I should raise my voice. It doesn’t matter who does it. What is wrong is wrong.
        Mahinda and JO joined Maithri. If they expect people will also change sides THAT EASILY, they are mistaken.
        I am NOT one for political coups or underhand games.
        I have my principles. I cannot alter them according to the situation.
        I stand by what I said. The next President is NOT A RAJAPAKSA.

    The suspects were arrested by the Terrorist Investigation Division (TID) in connection with the riots in Digana, Kandy earlier this year. “

    Next will be the Presidential Pardon for Rev. Bandanagara Ganasara.

    What will happen to the TID officers that investigated kidnapping and cold blooded murders?

    Is the new courts created to expedite hearing financial crimes costing billions to the country still active?

    Most of the accused are from the Rajapaksa family, how is that going to go forward.

    Will Thajudeen’s murder again turn to be an accident or a suicide?

        Yes by releasing these Sinhala Buddhist terrorists who attacked our Sri Lankan Muslim citizens and threatened all other ethnic and Religions minorities this illegitimate government has proven to the world they support Sinhala Buddhist terrorism.

        Note that this was one of the first things to happen as soon as Mahinda Rajapaksa was illegally appointed.

      Ready for ethnic violence again Sri Lanka? Saffron robed terrorists together with Sinhala nationalists will once again terrorize the minority, and spread fake news about “gulli’s and “charmed” toffees.

      Young men keep away from the girlfriends and ex girlfriends of the Rajapaksa boys.
      Things could end up badly for you.

    He does ont know about law and order in tis country.
    How can a man once said that he would have been murdered down by MR and now all of sudden to change all what he added from his mouth piece.
    Either mouth piece is crossplanted or this man shoulld be pretending all the time.
    May well be the bugger had his own agenda from the day 01.
    Leaving all the differences aside, bugger should see how protected his life if not UNPrs in violent days towards the end of 2014. His public stages had been burnt down by thugs sent out by Rajapkshe under world men. The had also been SIRISENA double which Rajapakshes had been using on their public stage to look down upon Sirisena.
    To that time, Sirisena thought, Ranil W was the best human being to have protected him.
    Even if RW had some difference with his, but he never treated him the way Ballige putha SIRISENA treats RW today.
    Today, I heard, RW’s security personnel have been reduced to 10. How come ? If any mob would take his life, who would take the respponsibility. It is the education and background Sirisena come from should be the reason him to react this way. Else, we as born buddhists learn that repay should be above everything in this culture.
    And all the media men have been blocked so that no messages could be shared by UNPrs today.
    Man, how come the bugger to have set, that his rule in SLANKA brought 5 start democracy and people s rights.
    Yestreday alone, one young man got killed in a mob attack with one of his previous minister’s guards. There, as Arjuna the minister got house arret there in petrolium building had been attacked.
    This man should have played up a sober lifestyle sofar to show that he is buddhist and respect high morals of human rights.

    Ranil please go. In the name of God please go. You had every opportunity to turn Sr Lanka into a prosperous country , a example for all the others in South Asia but you ruined it. You have dragged the country down to the cesspit what more do you intend to do. ??????????????
    Do you intend to bring the country down to beggary !!!!!!!!!! Is that your intention.

    In the name of Almighty God !!!! what have you done since 2015 ?????????????
    You buggered the Central Bank through a massive robbery and ruined the economy.
    You sold Lankan soil to India, you placed all your cohorts in top positions, you have traveled abroad frequently collecting false accolades, you disappear time and again into some dark temple cave in south India seeking solace from imaginary gods.
    In the name of the one and only Almighty God, dear man open your shitty brain and think. THINK THINK

    In Royal College you were the same person as you are at present. Insensitive, slimy, hard headed, crookish,
    you name it , you were it.
    Go !!!!! please bugger off and enjoy your retirement with your bunny boys.
    You are now 70 years in age and by law you cannot serve the public as a public servant neither can the other arseholes like you. SO BUGGER OFF

    Out of 17 minister posts 4 has gone to UNP defectors. Thy need at least fifteen to defect. The maximum ministers they can go now are 45. It sounds like, in this rate, marginally they may win the donkey trading game. Needed donkeys can be haggled from UNP to topple UNP. But so far these are the four names from day one I have been seeing the media as planning to defect. These fours are given jobs in the first batch as the carrots for the rest. But dissented UPFA MPs alone is 15. Joint Comedies are there and additional Old SLFPyers about 25 who were with UNP up to the last minutes are also there. What about other Muslim parties, Karuna, Angayan….. (Karuna yet to be listed as any minister but he has already declared his war on Eastern Muslims as “There won’t be any more Muslim Imperialism in the East”.) Would this means Joint Comedies who are going to be left behind have to seek Ranil’s mercy to be listed in Ranil’s cabinet?

    The biggest question is until Slap Party is there what is the status of SLFP members? Slap Part members Younger Brother Prince and GLP get nothing?

    If all the defected 4 MPs of UNP gets 4 minister posts, then the arithmetic of 45 minister posts are not adding up for the waiting hungry crowd . Ah.. …..my arithmetic……..! I have to scratch my head! ……Did anybody see Prof. Kumar? Is he missing in these? He still might be having some supporting calculation in his laptop.

    Apparently the assassination plot of Maithripala Sirisena and Gotabaya Rajapaksa has been manufactured to frame Ranil and Sarath Fonseka and use as an excuse to arrest them as part of the coup plans!

    The egos of three men now threaten Sri Lanka with its greatest merit. Maithri says he acted because of a threat to his life and the bond scam. The threat to his life is a matter for the police. The bond scam should have been better inquired into. They do not provide a justification for the removal of the PM. The PM himself cannot be absolved of all blame. He has been casual about running the affairs of the country. The people see him as responsible for the bond scam. He has not moved against Mahendran and is seen as protecting a crook. As to Mahinda R. the less said the better. Knowing that he and his family are in peril of exposure, he has acted in the manner he thinks best.

    It is still the same democracy of rececling of same old PALHORU Groups #1, #2 and #3. Mahidananda aluthgamage is not there but his brother, Some MPS rejected by the people are ministers. MAhinda Samarasinghe has ports and harbours and also accountes in PANAMA papers. Mahinda Rajapakse LAst time had to go because of Assigining ports to different countries. Mahinda Samarasinhe has Genewa experience. So, what wil hapen. HE also lost from the voters. But he is back..

    Luvlanka, you are talking nonsense. You can’t blame Ranil for everything. Remember he had to work in a coalition arrangement. Ranil is well educated, visionary and strategic thinker. He will take Sri Lanka to great heights if these idiots give him a chance. The electoral setback in local polls and the consequences on the economy and the current crisis is due to that idiot Sirisena who is trying his way for a second term. Under any circumstances, he should never brought MR back even as a National List MP or worse as current “PM”. Ranil can grasp and speak any complex subject and brings lot of respect internationally to our small unnoticed island nation. The bond scam cannot be blamed on Ranil until it is determined in the Supreme Court. The Rajapaksa’s have penetrated into all trade unions and taken advantage of the freedom of the Yahapalanaya to wreck the economy – higher prices and strikes/ protests. That is why canteen owners have reduced tea prices and lunch prices after MR became a “PM”. The man on the road doesn’t understand how important to have long term vision and planning. His idiocacy is exploited MR and team. Most of the current economic issues are related to global issues. This is felt in lots of countries and you can’t blame Ranil.

      That too is some thing I too am watching. Even China says it was just a courtesy call.

      Three days have passed but not one. If the current situation is prolonged for a few months you will start see the sanctions coming down.

      Next thing to watch is whether Ranil could hold the current support he has in parliament or whether MR and China will throw enough funds to buy votes.

    It is clear that My3 has done wrong. But is there anybody whom we can trust? None of those who have been in politics.
    .
    The JVP thrives on envy. Also have they taken action against that attempt by Widyarathne to rouse ridiculous racist passions by aligning with the fat Chief Minister of Uva, Chamara Sampath, who made that Principal kneel?
    .
    We’ve got to think of someone who will tackle the most serious problem- the politicians themselves. Once more I return to the need for the UNP to ditch Ranil Wickremasinghe,at least now.
    .
    Try Nagananda Kodituwakku.

      I thought sinhala-man would have been abducted by Rajpakshes. Please take care of you Sinhala man, you have proved to be an honest person. But with even former minister of justice being caught by the bunch of thugs, what can we expect lanken genetics to react next.
      All in all, corruption and brutal politics have been entwined as koholla guliya cannot be separated from it.

      Anyways, if you have got two evils, what would you do.

      I would rather love the democracy and media freedom guranteered by RW led groups than MR era. Unforutnatley, press freedom was abused by Rajapkseh men and they made an opinion also against good values.

      Those who know it, can go back to the days where over 44 journos and dozens of them had either been killed like cats and dogs or went missing.

    TWO STRATEGIC MOVES AND THE THIRD???

    1. Hopper move : take MS to RW camp.

    2. Survival first move: MS ask for a lifeline

    3. Friend in need move: enemies become friends again and move against MS ….OR????

    In the interim Sri Lanka suffers…

    No one has got onto the streets to protest against undemocratic acts of il presidente. This shows how deeply ‘Sinhala only’ has destroyed our society and it’s economic base. Our people will follow their false prophets and expect China to bail out their narrow minded Sinhala Buddhist folly. A few Colombo intellectuals and foreign embassies shouting is of no effect. RW May use the TNA to win the parliamentary vote but India and the west have no money to help him thereafter. UNP needs a new leader to fire up its base. That is the only hope. Otherwise we will watch in horror as the Rajapakse’s invite China to re-colonise us
