President Mahinda Calls His Ex-Ambassador NGO Man; Dayan Challenges President To Name NGO

President Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday for the first time openly criticised his former Ambassador to the UN in Geneva Dayan Jayatillake, saying he was making political statements and claiming he was now working for a non-Governmental organisation.

Responding to a question by the Al Jazeera Interviewer about the fact that his former Ambassador had strongly criticised the Government’s actions in Weliweriya where the armed forces are accused of shooting unarmed civilians, the President accused Jayatillaka of making statements for political reasons.

Dr. Dayan

“But he was your Ambassador, Mr. President,” the Al Jazeera reporter said.

“Yes he was my ambassador, but now he is a member of a very powerful NGO so they have their own views,” the President retorted, adding that this was a “democracy and anyone could say anything.”

The Al Jazeera reporter was quoting from Jayatilleka’s comment on the shootings at Weliweriya in which he noted: “The obvious observations will be, if this is how the State authorities treat unarmed Sinhalese, largely Buddhist civilian men, women and children who are protesting against polluted water, how must that state have treated the Tamils in the closing stages of the war?”  Dr. Jayatilleka told Colombo Telegraph that the President’s assertion or allegation was completely and utterly without foundation in fact.

“Doubtless the President has been grossly misinformed,” he said.

The former Ambassador said the last time he was a member of a NGO was three decades ago, when he was a member of the now defunct Movement for Inter-Racial Justice and Equality in Sri Lanka.

“I can state unambiguously and categorically that I am not a member of any NGO, large or small, international or local,” Jayatilleka told Colombo Telegraph, adding, “I would also like to know which NGO I am supposed to belong to”.

          Not only Dr.Dayan, but all of us UNPers are confused and question on credibility of Ranil, while constant failures of UNP in all the elections. Also JVP loosing badly is a mystery.

          It’s time Ranil to think seriously on his party Leadership roll as well as a winning strategy for UNP.

          Sajith is playing havoc in South dreaming to be party leader.

          It’s time to organize UNP with strong leaders and visionaries.

          Gen Sarath Fonseka came as a winner.

          U know one thing, our people across the country are not knowledgeable about the facts and figures. That is the reason why MR is being reelected even his poll results show that he still gets the mandates of the people.

          So, in a country where such stupid folks are the majority, I have no doubt, if UNP would send his leader as SAJITH or even Harin fernado, people could vote for them. That is the nature of lanken uneducated folks. It is the folks that should be accountable for the misery we ve been facing in the country today. MR and co have been cold bloodedly abusing the the stupidity of the masses. In that Al Jazeera interview he said, that the volks can chase him out, until then he would be there… can you imagine ?
          If one reliable neutral media institution would call for opinion poll, people of varied walks of lif in the country would bring the picture clear…. that people are significantly divided in this country .. that MR are not the good leaders to pave the way for a better future.

          Most ridiculous response of the president there is – if Ms Pillay addressed all the issues before ending her tour, he would have addressed them accordingly.
          If the man reads news papers, he should be well aware that Mervin was very uncivilized asking Ms Pilley to marry him and three other ministers were attacking her publicly… during that fact finding week of her.. this man behaves not as a leader but as an OPEN criminal… lanka should be very ashamed of having such a man to represent the country…. DOBY LIKE behaviour…

        Please keep cleaning his dirty linen further you might still stand a chance.

          “Dayan you used MR and MR used you.”

          Nopes, MR used Dayan, Dayan was being used by MR. It has always been a one way street.

          You will do well to remember, the JVP’s hey days with 39 MPs and where they are now.

          VP supported MR’s candidacy at the 2004 presidential elections, where is he now? Sarath de Silva and so many others were used and discarded like condoms?

          “Dayan – You are an educated man”

          Often educated men are the most vicious and greedy lot, void of wisdom.

          Education has nothing to with wisdom.

            Native,

            MARA’s three way strategy is Chocolate theory, Condom theory and White van disappearance theory. He uses either one or all three to stay in power.

            VP, Gen.Sarath Fonseka, CJ Dr.Shirani Bandaranayake, Lasantha Wickrematunge,Prageeth, Fredrica, Mervin, Duminda, Julampitiya Amare, Atha Kota,

            The frog in the well will dance tango only in the well. Not outside.

            Frog will be caught pretty soon by CV Wigneswaran and by International community.

            Dr.Dayan should clarify Pres. Rajapakse’s Al Jazeera comment on his NGO affiliation to the Citizen, Diaspora and International community. Dr.Dayan should call for a press briefing to clarify his position.

              Not Dr. Dayan, but it should be Dr. Jayathilaka if you use prefix to names. ..

              You have put all together on your list:

              VP, Gen.Sarath Fonseka, CJ Dr.Shirani Bandaranayake, Lasantha Wickrematunge,Prageeth, Fredrica, Mervin, Duminda, Julampitiya Amare, Atha Kota,??????????????????????????? why…

              While Mervin, Duminda and all culprits of that kind are being defended by MR… this you think others or what ?

              DJ should make it clear to us and everyone why the president added DJ as a powerful NGO supporter… no doubt about that… but when considering all the responses of the President – dont you people feel – satsifactory – some of the answers were like – KOHEDA YANNE MALLE POLLE like… not even near to responses…. it is better – if it possible, presidential secretariat should provide with a written version of this conversation, advising president to take part in next interviews with the help of an interpreter. Latter is not to be ashamed because he is well conversant in Sinhala only. This was the case with french, german and other eurpean ministers or presidents. English is just a langauge only. what matters is the contents of his responses.

            It is to show how MR uses his Chocolate, condom and white van theories on different people at different times.

            Many gifts, perks and chocolate are given to YES SIR CRIMINALS as long as they serve his agenda, and who lift their ass…s to him, while condoms to ones who ask for his credibility, and white vans to those who go against his agenda.

            GLP poodle could be the next to get MR’s condom packet.

            Take my word.

        This is a country where political “accidents” and “disappearances” are common and are part of governance. Remember Siripathi S? Looks like DJ’s days with The Brothers and The Family are numbered. It is not a wise thing to take on the Mob – not of this deadly variety.

        NGOs are now part of good world order. Not merely Obama, Cameron
        and Merkel but UNSG BKM too paid their tributes to NGOs for the excellent work they do – complementing the work of responsible
        Govts. Of course, the savages they are, the Rajapakses chased the Red Cross and other respected NGOs before the assault was made on the LTTE and Tamil civilians. Now they are trying to save their skins. The golden brains responsible for this believed in their own brilliance their mendacious claim of “zero casualties” will be believed. It is clear somebody is trying to strike a deal between the regime and Al Jazeera – a difficult adversary.

    Great!

    Now Dayan, you have repeatedly claimed you have not changed your position within these columns – many, many times.

    However, I have questioned you several times in these columns that you are the one who maintained that “the Government has demonstrably established just means were used in the war.” You did that when you were being paid (rather lavishly, champagne and all!) by the generosity of the President.

    However, promptly after you were let-go, you took the Weliverya opportunity to lament (you did that within three hours of the incident, you chest-thumped later on) “how must that state have treated the Tamils in the closing stages of the war?”

    So, don’t you think the President has the right to suspect you are now being paid by someone else and have to tow a different line (not unlike when he was paying you), since the President has now ceased paying you?

    It may be relevant to point out your other recent, enlightened criticism of the regime and President too: “a latent totalitarian thrust with some form of ruthless, brutal militaristic rule” and painted the President as impotent” & “being transformed into a quasi-ceremonial president; a mere electoral machine; an industrial strength vacuum-cleaner of votes.“

    The question then is why did you change your position on how Tamils were treated?

    If you can provide a rational answer – perhaps we (and Al Jazeera) will all be clear on the issue to assess whether it is the President or you we could trust more, or whether both are from rather similar yarn!

      Dayan,

      I might also remind you that you single-handedly celebrated MR in articles via multiple media proclaiming the MR was the best President the country could have hoped for. Any one criticizing him was an obvious “domestic Diaspora” you christened, in absolute servility.

      And, you did that promptly after the Regime rescued you from the “Temporary, assistant, adjunct faculty” in an Asian academy and elevated you to your dreamland & dream job!

      That is again possibly a reason why MR now suspects your having found a new paymaster – can you blame him? As the old wisdom goes, “it takes one to know one!”

        English is not MR’s forte. So, he should have opted to answer the questions in Sinhala. And that’s no shortcoming. Afterall which Russian leader, Chinese leader, Japanese leader, Brazilian leader, Cuban leader or even a French leader ever gave an interview in English. Don’t need interpreters, broadcasters carry subtitles in a language of choice. And MR would have performed better. But I am happy, I read his mind and we ‘re in safe hands.

    The interview was laughable. Rajapaksa denied every accusation or evaded answering them by saying that investigations are in progress or that he would investigate if complaints were submitted.

    The man is devious and hides behind plain lies. Dayan knew what kind of a scoundrel Rajapaksa was when he was defending him at the UNHRC and elsewhere. Rajapaksa ahs shown no gratitude for Dayan and he has been used and discarded. Now Rajapaksa is adding insult to injury by callaing Dayan an NGO lackey. How shameful!

      On CT, DJ tried to show that he supports the current regime, but readership got it that DJ is a selfish person. Once he brought articles criticising while a totally palatable to MR regime was the next article. I really dont think that one can rely on DJ even if his many of the arguments in terms of lanken politics are acceptable.

      Until MR has revealed this to Aljasira, readers of CT thought DJ was a great supporter to MR.

      This is a great lesion to DJ… he is a self discriptive, self centred person even if his efforts succeeded UNHRC not to impose UN resolutions in 2009. But he failed to avoid it … if he stood by truth – today people would have been thankful to him.

    Dr.Dayan Jayatillake,

    First of all you have to write to Al Jazeera reporter and explain him on President Rajapakse’s interview on your NGO affiliation and should inform them that you are not part of any NGO, and Rajapakse Pathological Liar told lies about you.

    You also have to report this to both local and International Media and ask for an explanation from President Rajapakse on you NGO affiliation. This is the way how he gets discredit all the NGOs and how he get away from all the allegations…..by telling NGO connections and lying to media.

    One Hundred Percent (100%) of everything what he told to Al Jazeera interviewer was UTTER LIES and he has mastered this from thye beginning.

    Please listen to the following Al Jazeera interview.
    https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/video-talk-to-al-jazeera-mahinda-rajapaksa-this-is-all-propaganda

    Everything what he told was utter lies including about UNHRC High Commissioer Navi Pillai. Every Sri Lankan other than Rajapakses and their Parliament crooks know that Dr. Navi Pillai is a honest, well respected around the world and well admired Lady. Only Rajapakses hate her due to she is telling the truth.

    President Rajapakse say he spent Three Billion US Dollars on Nothern Infrastructure Development. Where did the money go. Do you see Three Billion US Dollars of Development in Nothern Province, except to the Rajapakse’s pocket. I do not see the development for 3 Billion Dollars at all and COPE should investigate this.

    This is how the Hambanthota Gan Kabaraya “Villege Crocodile” deceive, decept, lie and cheat both Sri Lankan and International community. That is in their family Blood and in their roots. Family of Bloody Pathological Liars got caught for Lying on Independence square DS Senanayake Statue.

    Dr.Jayatillake,

    We know how crook Rajapakse Taught, moulded and used you, Prof. Rajiva and Tamara to tell lies to the UNHRC on Sri Lanka’s human right issues and when you asked him to implement LLRC, he used his CONDOM theory on all three of you,and kicked all of you out and installed another set of uneducated, unqualified cheap Puppets to tell lies to UNHRC.

    This is a Pathological Liar who live by lies who said Dr.Navi Pillai said to take down D.S. Senanayake statue which is also another Big Lie. Listen to his Al Jazeera interview to see how he lies to all the questions.

    Please see what the world say about Rajapakses.

    Dr.Dayan Jayatillake,
    This crook Joker is a Pathological Liar and a disgrace to our country and it’s people and you should stop him telling further lies. There should be a limit for his lies.

    Therefore Please do bring a Lawsuit against President Rajapakse for Lying to Al Jazeera on your false NGO affiliation and for degrading your character. You should ask President Rajapakse for a Public Apology for your Character Assassination. Also CT must follow up on this issue.

    The crook Liar must be stopped and we know that you are a Honest Gentleman.Please let us know what steps you are planning to take on this.Please call for a press conference.

    Await your reply.

      Yes, one commentators has described it …

      DJ, TK,Rajiva W are all re just like condoms produced by different companies upon the order of MR and clans.

      USE AND THROW is their most known principle –
      CBK is dead right to call Rajapakshes as uncultured, uneducated rascals.

      Ms Navi Pillay has opened up in her latest interview in NY that Rajapakshas are very proud of infrastructure projects but in terms of human rights both communities have begged her for help. This is the ground reality.

      May be Rajapakses may accuse Ms Pillay too as NGO^s supporter – or even as LTTE supporter just because of her tamil heredity. These are easy accusations… if anyone would go against on going brutal politics played by MR and the clans, they are all named after imperialists, dollar greedy abusers, NGO supporters or anything like similar to that.

      Sunil Perera,

      Your summary statement that caught my eye was “We know how crook Rajapakse Taught, moulded and used you, Prof. Rajiva and Tamara to tell lies to the UNHRC on Sri Lanka’s human right issues.”

      Would it then be reasonable to conclude that indeed the trio are less of an intellects than the “Can’t pass GCE O/L” Rajapaksa’s!

      The trio have been parading as academics, intellects and social scientists – and now you throw this bombshell, degrading them so mercilessly. Wonder if they would have the basic courage and intellect to prove otherwise – if not, all that money, time and other resources spent on these goons at the expense of the tax payers were for naught! Would you agree?

        What I ment to say was Pres. Rajapakse duped Dr.Dayan and others to tell lies to UNHRC on Sri Lanka’s human right record promising them that he will implement LLRC recommendations and other issues.

        But later MR used his condom theory on them when Dr.Dayan and others forced MR to implement what they promised to UNHRC which MR did carry out.

        Now MR doing the same using GLP.

          Sunil Perera,

          I understand that you meant MR took these three educated fools for a complete ride. That was indeed my point — Education has not made them any smarter; else they would not have got fooled into being so abused, and that by such uneducated gutter snipes. As such, the education provided at tax payers cost to these three was obviously a huge waste – and their self-assertions about their intellect is a gross exaggeration, if not utterly false.

          There is a bigger issue here.

          MR says that Dayan is working for an NGO and therefore he said this – and that in a democracy Dayan can say what he wants.

          Note that Dayan considers himself an intellect, an academic and a political scientist. MR’s accusation amounts to saying that Dayan can be bought; that he does not have the academic neutrality or the integrity expected of an academic/intellect. That his statement does not represent his academic insight, but rather Dayan is a willing panderer to his pay master.

          That is actually a direct attack on Dayan’s honour – that MR would tell the whole world that Dayan can be bought!

          If Dayan has any courage or honour left in him, he would vehemently defend himself on that attack. Just asking MR to name the NGO is just a cop out. May be MR has information Dayan is being paid by an NGO – but it is not necessary he knows which NGO, or perhaps he has reasons not to name the NGO even if he knows who.

          If Dayan has any honour left in him, he needs to challenge MR for “selling out” his intellect and academic credentials, not play lame pretend-defense.

            Agree with you. Let’s see how Dr.Dayan J. is going to come out from this NGO issue to clear his name.

            Also UNHRC Navi Pillai has to come out from the Sri Lanka HR report wrote it before she came to Sri Lanka and DS Senanayake statue issue and COPE has to show how the three billion US Dollars spent on Nothern infrastructure Developments. White van disappearance and Lasantha Wickrematunge, Prageeth murder.

            This is what happens when Gan Kabaraya drink Wine at UN.

    Is Dayan confirming that Mahinda is a liar in front of International Media without focussing on the question but indulging in character assasination starting from Navi pillay to Dayan ???

    It is really Fascinating abt his proud claims of predicting 7-10 seats even while army were doing his party work & imagine how many he would have got if not for their action on the ground ???

    Mahinda’s beef with dayan is abt his obsession with 13th amendment & there is not even once the dirty word “13th amendment” mentioned in the 30 mins interview & that says it all.

    Dayan has to work harder against 13th amendment in order to get into good books of Racist Regime.

    President reveals that he is an idiot.

    So long he would allow westerners to interview him – people would feel that he is the best but when he opens his mouth.. not constructive responses come out.. That he has proved in his interview with Aljasera.

        This is a great embarrassment to DJ who is used to call him repeatedly ” PhD holder”, ” Political Analyst”, “Senior lecturer in political science” – anyway, he will come with any another article about another comparison between Mahinda Rajapakshe and Ranil Wickramasinghe.
        We are all aware of the fact that RW is not considered as good sinhalese orator. But he is an educated, uncorrupted, cultured, decent personality. Even if he is often being attacked by most filthy versions in sinhala language, he would not even notice them. Latter proves further RW is a great personality.

          Banda,

          Dayan won’t get any commission to save 13A. He is only warning about the repercussions if MR abandons it.

          Remember there were over 30 countries helped Sri Lanka to win LTTE Eelam war including India.

          Before it was LTTE VP fought against 31 countries.

          This time it could be Rajapakse Joker against 31 countries, if he try to Play comedy drama with them.

          Better to kick the ass out and save our country.

          Remember JR ate Indian Humble Parippu in 1987.

          What is there for MR.

        Were you the one misinformed the prez about Dayan is working for an NGO.

        By the way what i like in this interview is that MR himself revealed to the world that he neither could talk a few sentences properly nor he is a smart leader. Its a complete fcuk-up. what a shame.

        Yes they are in it.

        CPA is what gave unemployed Dayan his latest evening job.

        Rajafucksas have tapped his phones (like in USA) and they know.

          One doesn’t have to be in the list of employer registry of an NGO to be classified its worker. I would classify NGO worker is a man or woman who promote neocolonialists assigned agenda to NGOs and get paid direct or by subtle means. We have seen it when Sunanda Desapriya engaged in it. I bet Dayan is just one of hundreds like them. Ex CJ Shirani is another to name one.

    NGOS are an anathema to the Rajapaksas.He also brought up the absurd analogy of the colour of the van that was involved in the abduction of persons. He is still awaiting the reports of inquiries! Bensen

    “Doubtless the President has been grossly misinformed,”

    Whay not stand up for your self if you have any dignity and backbone as did Navi Pilly on the D S Senanyake and Buddhist flag issue and challenge the President openly.

    MR does not tolerate any dissent. You can be his stooge, his hit man, his door mat, his adviser, as long as you dont go against his racist or dictatorial policies.

    Play ball with him like Hudson, Rajpal, Lucien, Kohana, Ravinath, Sajin Vaas, Duminda, Mervin etc and be in his good books and well looked after. Criticise him and you will end up like Sarath, Shirani, Dayan. Strange that he does not attack RW.

        Here the President means not about any NGOs but ones that work for neocolonealists’ agenda. Anyone can see what neocolonealists and their paid terrorists have done for Libya in the name of democracy. That’s what we mean their agenda.

          What NGO’s did in Libya, Rajapakses are doing to their own people.
          This is Democrazy Rajapakse style.

          Remember false Pride, stubbornness,show off,lying, attitude change and Big head comes before the Fall.

          JR also talked big but ultimately ate Indian “Parippu” dhal.

          Let’s see what Rajapakse’s package is.

            Don’t you forget Mahela, by now, India must have learned and understood the returns of the parippu feeding the hard way. No other country has lost its PM for poking its finger into others pie. Remember, prime minister of India was blasted to pieces by LTTE. I bet, India will never ever try to do the same on Sri Lanka again. But they’ll continue to use Dayan like agents to promote their agenda.

            Do not compare the Yankee doodle, JRJ to MR. JRJ is a right wing extremist. He not only kept undated resignation letters of his MPs but postponed elections and thereby our right to elect MPs by deceit. Ain’t it the work of a real dictator. JRJ banned the JVP and ChandrikaK took them for a ride. In the end she was humbled and JVP had 41 elected MPs.

            MR on the other hand is very well balanced in his political views. MR gave space for all political parties in his alliance. Cleaver as he is, he only insisted they all accepted his ‘Mahinda Chintanaya’. Say what you like, but the truth is majority UNP MPs have accepted that ‘Mahinda Chintanaya’ and joined his government in hordes. No wonder JVP, UNP and the likes of those that opposed his war on terrorism and development are on their way to abyss. Even the ‘Mahinda Chintanaya’ original promoters like Champika, Weerawanssa cannot win unless they contest under Rajapakse. That’s the popularity of the man. I foresaw that and that’s why I have dropped UNP a long ago.

            MR is also a much more astute politician than JRJ for he know when to be friends with whom. India is the best example. Only neocolonialists who has their own worldwide agenda stand permanently against him. But the whole world is turning against them. neocolonialists are stuck in Sri Lanka because the majority hate their agents, the NGOs, the evangelists and the separatists. Neocolonialists and their backers do not know that it is their antinational campaigns by their agents that win elections for MR.

    I am really fascinated by the way people go on here, that working for an NGO, or worse still an INGO, is seen in this country as a henious crime, up there with treason of the highest order. Obviously all these organisations have nothing better to do than to work tirelessly day and night towards the destabilisation of the Sri Lankan state and all the high moral values it stands for. Equally obviously, perhaps none of the distinguished respondents on this column have ever had the misfortune to be thankful for the help these NGOs and INGOs have given thousands of less fortunate Sri Lankans in their hours of need, and when the government and more fortunate citizens were unable or unwilling to help.

    Remember the tsunami? All those thousands of displaced people, both Sinhalese and Tamil, with their homes, loved ones and livelihoods washed away in an instant? There was a massive outpouring of help from the international community, channelled through many of these maligned INGOs and NGOs incidentally, without which recovery would have been near impossible. Look at the south west coast today for some of the results.

    Also consider the thousands displaced at the end of the war. While the government spent months denying they existed, it was these NGOs and INGOs that kept them alive and in the international eye until something was done.

    Now it has become normal to ridicule them, and blame them for everything. Because we have not the will or courage to do the things they do, nor the humility to see the good they do and not be ashamed of ourselves.

      Most NGOs are the creations by the evangelical, neocolonialist western Governmental agencies and international financial institutions. No one knows how many such NGOs operate in the Third World. But we know that at least 20 billion dollars are being given to them annually purportedly to elevate the poor and destitute from misery. It is no secret that all NGOs spend 70% of their hand-ins for, salaries, perks, foreign travel, hotels, seminars, tamashas, SUVs and etc. No wonder health problems still there, poverty is still there and children still die of starvation in those countries.

      Then what have these NGOS been doing in third world countries. Having over three billion dollar budget, World Vision International is one of the largest NGOs in the world. 27% or just under one billion dollars of that funding comes from the US government and its agencies. World Vision claims it is an ecumenical organization but reality it is an Evangelical Christian organization. World Vision is accused in Bangladesh and many other countries for converting poverty stricken people to Christian faith with bribes.

      NGOs in general and Transparency International in particular goes all out to expose corruption in governments. That is well and good. But what about corruption in NGOs. Are they not dens of corruption? Hindustan Times reported today that “The Delhi high court has called for toughening of licensing norms for NGOs observing that 99% of them are ‘fraud’ and ‘merely money making devices'”. Jan 17, 2013 Colombo page reported that “On a complaint received from a state bank the CID arrested the 14 individuals attached to two NGOs for allegedly engaged in financial fraud from foreign bank accounts amounting to 263 million rupees.” Before that on June 2nd 2012 CT reported on Frederica Jansz’s writeup on the cover up of 40 million fraud by Free Media Movement of Sunanda Desapriya. There are many more.

      Talking about work by NGOs in Sri Lanka, to say the least the actual work done by them are negligible when compared to the amount of monies they have received from their foreign donors. In spite of these fraud and corruption neocolonialism donors continue to fund them. Why?

      So long as the local NGOs work for donors agenda and promote their policies Neocolonialists are not worried about the financial transparencies of their NGOs. Neocolonialists want their NGOs to be cat’s paw of their politics. In May 2013, Friedrich Ebert Foundation, the German-Government-funded NGO the so called ‘non-profit cultural institution’ had sponsored a seminar for opposition on how to topple a government democratically. Sri Lanka branch chief, Nora Langanbacher was arrested and had to put a 200 million surety to leave the country. Since, the government has taken a series of measures to clamp down on NGOs engaged politics and activities that threaten the peace and security of Sri Lanka.

      Needless to say then NGOs live on the misery of the people but work hard to look after the interests of foreign governments. Benefits the poor derive from them are very minimal.

    Due to Dayan’s biased and at times racist opinions, he couldn’t get any respect from many of us. He’s educated but wasted all his knowledge defending a criminal regime probably for his own benefit, discarding the ground situation. His support of regimes of Cuba,and some communist leaning regimes/leaders are all a pathetic show. It looks like he never has a solid policy or a meaningful argument about anything. His complicating views and contradictory statements makes one wonder what he was trying say. On the whole, he has become a floppy diplomat who couldn’t even save or keep his respect intact. It’s a lost opportunity of a so called educated man, who messed up things for him and his country. Today he is the subject of ridicule and no one wants him or his advice on media forum. Bad boy, bad boy what you gonna say ?…!
