“President Sirisena Acting Like One Deranged”

Maithripala Sirisena appears to be extremely perturbed by recent political developments and is consequently acting like one deranged, sources close to President Maithripala Sirisena told Colombo Telegraph.

President Sirisena

In the face of increasing evidence of disapproval among the voters, Sirisena is said to have been disturbed to the point that he is quick to lose his temper even over relatively minor issues.

The unofficial presidential pollster, Malith Jayatilleka (MP), who also predicted that Mahinda Rajapaksa would lose the Presidential Election in January 2015, is said to have informed the president that if the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) contests alone it would end up fourth in the local government election. This view has been echoed by intelligence reports, Colombo Telegraph learns.

President Sirisena has accordingly been informed that outside the Northern and Eastern Provinces his faction of the SLFP would have to fight the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) for the third place.

The President’s anti-Wickremesinghe advisors are said to have urged him that the best option under the circumstances is to forge an alliance with Mahinda Rajapaksa.

It is widely held that Sirisena’s moves to postpone local government elections is to purchase time to forge such a deal.

    Makes a lot of sense to unite with MARA fraction. Sirisena has no base and hence has no chance.

    Why do you think arrest of Gotabaya has been delayed?
    Why do you think Sirasa has been given a free hand to destroy Ranil and UNP?
    Why do you think Sirasa is going non stop on the bond scam?

    Local Govt elections will be postponed and some alliance between the two SLFP factions is inevitable.

    Don’t be surprised if Sirisena pulls a wild card in 2020 by pulling out some findings from the bond inquiry to stop Ranil from contesting !! This bond scam report is going to be by very useful for Sirisena and he will use it as a trump card in time to come.

      During visit of RW to India, they have assured RW that they will help Srilanka in any difficulty. Is this only for economic problems or includes political ones too. If so will India spearhead ousting of MS and installing RW as the President. MR will prefer RW with whom he has excellent relationship, rather than the turncoat MS. I will not be surprised that an impeachment will be made against MS with support from MR.

        ghana Sankaralingam – You are from LTTE rump. Some how you want eelam at the expense of the country. that is why you want Ranil the RAT. That will never happen. Try your best. YOur kind of undesirables are the reason why Tamils are suffering.

          Jim Softy the coward writing under a pseudonym. I have no connection to LTTE or any political group. Do not mix the rights of Tamils with that of LTTE. Do you know that the proscription on LTTE has been lifted by European courts, which means that only their action is unacceptable but not their goals for justice to Tamils.

          Jim Softly; yours is a shabby post. It does not do justice to you.

          Suggest you learn even at this late stage some decorum when putting pen to paper.. There is nothing written anywhere that everyone else must write and think the way you do.

        Dear Gnana,

        *

        When I first saw this article there were only seven comments,and I decided that your reasoning this time is correct. Yes, but is it Ranil or Maithri who is on the side of the angels? Admittedly, Maithri has reneged on certain promises owing to his weakness, and yes, it is Tamils who have suffered. But is more possible? You should give your assessment sadly! Do I make sense?

        *

        Ansar’s comment was next, and it reflected my thinking exactly. I desperately hope that Maithri recognises the limits that he set himself at the end of 2014, when he acted courageously. He must contest these elections on his own – and be resigned to coming 2nd, 3rd or even 4th in most places. If he does that, he gets my vote.

        *

        There may be much more profound comments that I have missed.

        *
        No, I will find it very difficult to find a way of voting for “his” candidates at an election. However carefully he selects, he will end up with people of low calibre. It is true, so few at village level have the breadth of vision or the consistency of purpose to have a say in governing in today’s world. All this is sadly written.

        *

        The UNP has to reform so much at the top for me to give them my vote, that I know it won’t happen. There must be democracy within the party.

        *

        I know that I’m an obscure guy of no importance; but I consider my vote to be of the highest importance. Even “sacred”.

        *

        It will go to an honest man. Maithri is honest now. His actions can turn the same man dishonest. He will remain the same man; but his role in History will be different.

        *

        What he will be has not yet been decided.

        • 1
          2

          I fer that I have not made myself clear at one point:

          “I will find it very difficult to vote for “his” candidates,” if Maithri decides to have some of his candidates on a joint slate with Mahinda Rajapaksa.

          This is essentially what happened in August 2015 at the Parliamentary Elections. All the Maithri candidates “lost” with the Rajapaksa candidates topping the lists.

          *

          So it looked as though there could be a case for appointing some of them on the “National List”. Not only were they immediately labelled as candidates “rejected” by the people, but also most of them were rotten eggs.

          *

          I know that I’m being terribly subjective in my assessment. But really, I think that it’ll happen again if the exercise is repeated. Maithri must face up to the fact that those who will willingly vote for him are quite different from those who vote for Mahind R. either because he seems the likely winner, or because of his appeal to atavistic fears of the xenophobic.

          *

          I’m not sure that I will be understood! Oh, well, I can only say that I’ve been wrestling with this all night – and now a new day is dawning!

      President Maitripala Sirisena,

      So you think that joining the devil, the crooks and killers will solve the ‘problem’ you have, because you were not decisive, interfered with the due process of the law, blocked the arrests of the killers?

      You can still correct the problem. let the law and ofer go after the crooks and the killers, Mara, Gota or anybody else.

      Why are you blocking Gota and other crooks arrest? go in front of the mirror and ask yourself, why?

        Srilanken politics are just not honest.

        Even if My3 has louded to take the side of the general public, he is the one to have sacked former FCID chief.

        He is the one to have not reacted as promised against Rajapakshes.
        He is the one to have done nothing beyond that 100 day program .. in terms of getting the high criminals by their horns.
        He louds about his 50 year old lanken nature of parliamentaryy politics, but no commissions or special commissions have yet been set to stand against Rajapakse high criminals why ?
        MIG deal
        Dubai bank deposits amoujnting to 18 Billions of dollars
        Thadjudeen killing and the records
        What else, high frauds done by Rajapkashe kith and kin.
        What about Sajin vaas and the related cases ?

        Mr My3 you re no body else, but an Executive Prez of the nation… 62 lacks of voters elected you to work on investigations against higih criminals. You have not done nonthing sofar.

      Sirisena should follow the model of Prince Salman of Saudi Arabia who has arrested corrupt princes and cronies and is keeping them in 5 star Hotel until the funds they stole are returned to the State.
      Check out this story https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/nov/09/saudi-arabia-201-people-held-in-100bn-corruption-inquiry
      Ranil Wickramasinghe and his Bond scammer network and the Rajapaksa brothers and Sri Lankans named in Panama Papers should ALL be kept under house arrest at the electricity guzzling and glittering GODE Shangri La and their bank accounts frozen until they return the funds they looted from Lanka;

      Sirisena should form an alliance with JVP to fight corruption, and arrest both the UNP bond scammers and the Mahinda Rajapakse, brothers, sons and cronies networks and those named in Panama Papers.

        Kalupahana …….This I agree with. I am not a JVP fan, but at the moment I find they are the only ones that speak up for cleaning our dustbin of political system and punishing the crooks in the parliament. I hope that people will vote for them and people like Handunneththi will put into activate their theories about what should be done with the wrongdoers and revising our political system

        But JVPrs too are no honest.

        They have hidden agendas. I think it is becoming harder to work with them.

        Lanken politics and voters would not respect the way JVPrs only stay attacking the other. If they are genuine, they could have been part of current govt.

        Bank bond scam is not the only high profile fraud should be placed before everything.
        There are thrillions of debts that the govt has to pay back to china and other countries.
        All these started their grace periods after the current govt came into power.
        Latter is not louded by current govt for their weaknesses, may be they feel to show those figures can backfire them.
        And the other fact is that Mr Sirisena has been close to their former profile ministers keeping themin his cabinet…. that is no means fine, since they too have their own records of malpractises no seconds those high crime doers ordered and led by former Rajapakshes.

        All in all, it is penisless nature of the current govt, have failed to jail at least one of the Rajapakshes yet.
        I think JVP has no whatsoever knowledge than attacking the other, but doing or supporting no good moves …
        They have no whatsoever knowledge about lanken voters.
        Voters rejected them, just because jvp polics reflect by their behavours in 89.
        OVER 50 k of youth were killed and burned down.. not UNP but JVP themselves.
        They are very like thugs or killers. Lanken maasses are fools, caricatured by so called buddhist Jathaka kathas.
        Not real buddhist teachings.
        So, they would turn out their mind sets just for a rice packets or a glass of arrack.
        Please THrisu, just focus on the truths and support the JVPrs.
        JVPrs are just theoretical: Nothing beyond that
        SAITEM issue to be extended should be put the blame on JVPrs.
        God bless srilanka

      What a balderdash.
      President is on the steadiest platform than any other politician.
      Ranil’s political future is solely depended on the President. With one stroke of his pen, President can make Ranil a political nonentity.
      MR’s/JO’s political stage is also depended on the President as Chairman/SLFP. One kick is enough to collapse their stage weakened by themselves. Other constituent parties in the UPFA; Wimal and the rest, can form an alliance, if they want. President has no say in that.
      The paper-cap JVP is neither here nor there. Then where the hell is it? Even Anura doesn’t know.
      I am telling this again and again. Boundary Delimitation should be re-assessed allowing public consultation. Nobody can rule out possible gerrymandering in favour of UNP or electoral manipulation in favour of Tamils/Estate Tamils/Muslims.
      .
      Mr. President, politicians have personal agendas. I’m not a politician. Hence, this request. There should be a re-assessment of Boundary Delimitation involving general public, representatives from villages affected by controversial new boundaries and Maha Sangha, prior to LG elections.
      Cabinet approved an increase of 4/PSS to Nuwara-Eliya without blinking an eye. Now Sri Pada temple has been removed from the Buddhist majority Ambagamuwa (Korale) PS and attached to Maskeliya!!! This is unacceptable. As a Buddhist, I have serious concerns about this idiocy of some colonial officials/politicians totally ignoring religious/cultural/social impacts emanating from such changes. This has to be rectified forthwith and other similar issues affecting Sinhalese. Some people are totally in the darkness about these changes and there are complaints of ignoring suggestions made by local politicians. Therefore, an interactive public deliberation coupled with open negotiation among interested community groups is necessary before LG elections. Mr. President, please be aware, there are people who have no voice in the Parliament.

        One question here is whether Maithri can maintain himself as a “Major Player” for another two years. He could, if ALL of us get convinced that he will retire after two years.

        I’m sorry, Champa, but I have to say it again for the sake of those who are seeing my comments for the first time: to me there seems to be racism in your comments, but it is a way of looking at life that is honest. And you are consistent.

          Sinhala MIniho… if you would trust MY3 enlighten us please why you would do so.

          Is that because he has not reacted adequately getting THE MOST MURDEROUS HIGHLY ABUSIVE BUNCH YET by their horns ?

          WHo is the executive prez of this country … ? If not My3 ?

          Why My3 want his party to win and pave the way idiots to return to the merrgo rounds and destroy the nation ?

          He was the person to have been attacked by Rajapakshe to the manner as nobody could get it easily, but now to turn to them is BEYOND stupidity.

          Champa you will win more customers next days… your profession has never been disadvatageous.

      Does anyone need to pull a wild card to contest with Ranil for a Presidential election ?????? ROFL . Does he posses the audacity to come forward as a candidate in another Presidential election without shame ? If so why did he facade scarecrows to come forward in 2010 and 2015 ? This time UNP must at least give some thought to P. Harrison .
      Even A.S.P Liyanage will stand for a battle with Ranil by 2020 . Hilarious !

      “Why do you think Sirasa has been given a free hand to destroy Ranil and the UNP?”

      A responsible media is bound by professional ethics. Those who don’t abide by them, talk high about themselves during News; show their various acts of “social charity” as a part of national News and even vilify national leaders with impunity; obviously under some sort of political “protection”. It is a shame that under the guise of saving the nation such media stations are actually contributing largely towards destroying the nation and finally, destroying themselves.

    I had the highest regard to President Sirisena until yesterday, despite his occasional silly utterances at times. But from today on wards it will be one of utter disappointment and great betrayal.

    He is turning towards murderers, just to win him the local council elections. What a shame on him to go back to the murderous family and gang for personal gains.

    Why can’t we find one genuine human being in Sri Lanka who would put country first before self or is it too much to expect from our countrymen.

    Can I Just say, what all were saying before, which I deplored..sorry mate, AIYO SIRISENA, be a part to bring back White Van, Murders and law of the jungle, back again. Happy living with murderers and gangsters.

    A word of caution though, take care of your life, as it is not much respected in MARA camp. If you have any doubt just re visit the sagas of Lasantha, Bharatha, Prageeth, Thajudeen, Welikada Prisoners, Rathupaswela Protesters and many other killings during the dark ages of MARA. We honestly do not intend, that happening to you.

      Your “utter disappointment” is because you refused to see where he came from and why he accepted to contest.

      He was and is a key member of the SLFP. The worst corrupted looters of the country. Majority are Sinhala, Buddhist bigots one reason they have never done well among minorities of race and religion.

      He was a leading member of MR’s inner circle and held important portfolios in cabinet during the last govt.

      Was the acting defense minister when the worst form of war crimes are accused to have happened.

      Never uttered a word when Lasantha, Raviraj, Thajudeen was murdered.

      Never uttered a word when the chief justice was illegally remved.

      He contested as he knew he could never become the President or even the PM under MR as he knew Basil was groomed to be PM and if MR could not hold unto the Presidency Gota could be pushed in place.

      He did all he can to keep Rajapaksa as justice minister so he would do MS’s bidding.

      Now that it failed his corruption and obstruction of justice protecting corrupted politicians and murders are coming to the open.

      So he pulls a fast one like MR saying “I Got Files” that “I will resign from all posts and fight with the people against corruption”. Wasn’t this the reason people sent them there and now regretting?

    He said, if MR won, he would be in six feet under. Same would happen if joins him and his cabals. Even with out any power, MR and his cabals creating such chaos and misery in the country with their looted money but when they get at least little bit of power and position all hell would let loose in the country. Ranil and UNP wouldn’t harm him but MR and cabals cunningly waiting until he falls into their net to get him. He and those who leading him into the garden path are digging his grave. How could he do this, joining with criminals, when he said to the country and world that he would take action against them. Because of his good words, world leaders shocked hands with him in Japan. When they hear what he is doing now, instead of hands, they would give their legs to him. Gripewine says, Rajitha is pressing Ranil to part with them and form their own government instead of these miserable lot. Only they are short of seven MPs and Sampanthan assured TNA would support them from the opposition. MR and JO given condition to Siriswna, if they were to joint, he should appoint Susil as SLFP secratey instead of Duminda. Duminda says, if removed he would go and sit with the UNP. SB says, if Duminda removed he too would follow him to the UNP. See one man’s power hunger casuses so much headache to the country. He should be neutral like President DB, and let things to take it’s own cause rather than listening to catchers and tarnishing his good name by going to be Tom, Dick and Henry of everything.

    There is a saying, “Those whom the gods wish to destroy, they are made to go mad”.

    Eventually, the poor folk of Sri Lanka loose. If it is MR, or RW or the JVP who spilled innocent blood in the past, we are between a rock and a hard place.

    How greatly relived and hopeful we were in the early part of 2015 and how sick we feel now.

    BUT, there is a great God above not a statute but a living Creator who has eyes, ears, and a heart to know what is happening. He will deal with us.

      I Agree Kumaran. American Constitution is based on Isaiah 33,22 “Lord is our Judge, Lawgiver, and King. He will save us” SL is structured according to that pattern of Judiciary, Legislature and Executive. When God’s people call out to him, he will judge with righteousness and justice.

    Sirisena does not have any options. “Maga hitiyoth tho nasi, gedara giyoth ambu nasi”. That is the only option available to him. He would be discarded by every body when he faces the elections in 2020.
    He himself has proved that he is a man with out any vision and pragmatic knowledge and practice. He has not done anything. He is a man of talking. Evan a small child who writes an school essay can write or say some thing about his vision of becoming the president of Sri Lanka and executing his vision.. But this man has completely failed in that task. Every day, he declares him self with many “Sangramays”. But they are like childish talk without any outcome.

    Still he can correct his future path. He has to take immediate legal action against the UNP big members who have participated in the bond scam first. Thereafter he has to get rid of all SLFP crooks surrounding him .Then he can win some credibility from the public.

    He does not have other options. Only option available is to have some reconciliation with the Joint Opposition and leave politics after 2020.
    He will go into the history as another “Don Juan Dharmapala”.

    Aiyo! Sirisena! Why did you lose your voter base? Isn’t it your own doing? Nobody is to blame if you did not consolidate yourself in terms of electoral strength since Jan 2015. What are your deliveries? The only thing you did tangible was to appoint a thing called the bond commission where the crooked nature of your own partners got exposed to the tune of Billions. Your stab in the back partners, shrewdly postponed the elections in so many ways to consolidate their positions, politically. You? Obviously you are responsible for the delivery of election promises of the Presidential elections, even if the idea came from your partners. Take a pencil and paper. List the promises you all made. What have you delivered for the past three years? Yes! You promised free WIFI. The things you did in that sphere was to have the Telecom Regulator under your direct control whatever be the constitutional restraints. You put in your brother (or half-brother?) into the chairmanship of Sri Lanka Telecom. That blessed institution, people within it says owes banks to the tune of Rs 40 Billion while he and his bosom CEO earns Rs 10 Million a month. If MR did things so secretively so that no one can find anything YOU! MS! did it in the open. I will not use the un-parliamentary language in calling you a “bloody fool”. May God Help!

    Rajapaksa the murderer must surely be smelling blood, with Sirisena in a vulnerable situation.Sirisena better look out as Rajapaksa will go for his jagular at the earliest opportunity once he has even a semblance of the levers of power.If he takes the man in it will be like putting a viper inside his sarong.

    The only way Sirisena could survive is to work out some pact with Ranil.Sirisena better remember that the murderous Medamulana Chena cultivating Rajapaksa clan are a vengeful,deadly combination.Another 5 years of national government would be best for the country too..

    UNP should realize its weakness and support the creation of a national government.

      Sirisena is not in a vulnerable situation and Rajapaksa is not a murderer. If you want to see a murderer go and look at Ranil and read Batalanda Report. Idiot.
      “The only way Sirisena could survive….” What a joke man, He doesn’t need any survival. It is Ranil who is looking for ways to survive.
      “Another 5 years of national government….”???? What did you think people will do until then? Sleep? President will never go for another pact with Ranil/UNP. I have 100% faith.

          He has no whatsoever knowledge .. his is comparable to that brutal Mugabe in Zimbabwe. He is very like extremists. No matter anything would have been the case, he wanted to mobilise and loot the state as nothing could help.

          Please open your eyes, so long Champas are the majority of this lost island, we will have no peace . Nor can we even talk about peace.
          Not just Tamils, but muslims too have been attacked by murderous Rajapakshes.
          I really dont know why the folks as if their principal meal woul dhave been cow dung, behave servile and go after murderers who killed not just nothern srilankens but also anyone they thought the blood of the targeted were of their favouites.

    What he is doing now is going to be like the woman who saw the king, and left the husband for the king. When the king left her, nor the king nor the husband. By the way, what he is doing for Lankaenews is not what people expected of him. If all what it’s says about him were not correct, he should repute it, take legal action. This babish behaviour of him is too bad. This has lead more people go to that site through proxcies. When Mara and Gora blocked CT, we had a clear front row view of it through proxies. In this technology age it’s very, very hard to block a site, even a person a bit tech savvy could open it with little effort. All these bad things throw back more and more mud at him.

      lankaenews is putting itself as a best fit for being blocked by a Govt. Look at the way how unprofessional their way of reporting, use of words, sentences etc.

      I don’t say if they report the truth or not, but it makes me think twice whether they are on personal revenge with MY3 / MR for the same above reasons. Their editorial should improve not giving any chance that backfires and undermines the truth

        M3 use Lankaenews when almost all the web sites, State Media, Electronic media and print media except very few web sites were supporting Rajapaksha regime. One can argue about Lankaenews harsh way of reporting. But it is not the very reason for blocking that site. Recently they disclosed about Chathurika Sirisena’s Advertising Company getting ad’s from Govt.Institutions. No one can argue about the right to start business but after her Father became a President? Specially ad’s from Telecom where her Uncle is the Chairman? Not only Lankaenews even “Ravaya” also published an article about this. Another one is proposed purchases of Russian Warship. This transaction involves massive commission and M3 family wanted to keep Keeli Maharaja as local agent. Those are the very reason to block Lankaenews in Sri Lanka. Also, Why M3 can’t see Sirasa Media abuse against UNP and it’s Leaders. Is there any difference between Sirasa and Lankaenews reporting?

    M3 appointed the bond commission to trap UNP and RW. Commission will submit a report on 8th Dec. and there is no doubt that SLFP M3 faction and Mahinda faction will use this reports against UNP. M3 will use keeli maharaja’s “Kakkussi kata” from morning to evening to throw hundreds of tons of mud at UNP and RW. Mahinda faction will also use “Ada da Rena” and “Kudu Hiru” to throw mud at UNP and RW. Apart from both M3 and Mahinda faction JVP also use the Bond drama against UNP. Then UNP will not have any media support as State media will not act on it’s own. That may be the reason why M3 blocked lankaenews in the Country. Any way this bond matter should go before the court and we have to wait for the outcome. M3 will have to face serious of problems from 62 laks who voted for him. People will ask him what happened to the MIG case, Walikada massacre, weather the Waseem thajudeen killed himself, Lasantha Wickramathuga committed suicide, Prageeth Eknaligoda still hiding in somewhere. Upali Tennakoon, Keeth Noir they themselves did something to go abroad as political victims. If M3 will help that ruthless gang to grab the power it will be the end of democracy in the Country. That ruthless gang will turn the Country other way around. At that time what only M3 can do is to raise his sarom and cover his face. M3 will be in the history only as “Peechang President”

      The 62k who voted Maithri is longer interested in MIG, Welikada, Thajudeen, Ekneligoda, even Lasantha. Only a handful of UNP politicians and some NGO scavengers are still talking about them. The more serious national crimes, such as; Ranil’s and Mangala’s treacherous Geneva Report/War Crimes Tribunal followed by OMP, ICPPED, Federal Constitution, sale of national assets, PPP and the Bond Scam have superseded them and taken the centre stage. At the next available opportunity, people will set the political stage to make Ranil a mere black dot in the history. President had the guts to take a U turn from Ranil’s treachery. As it is apparent now, President hadn’t have any hand in it. President seems to have no interest in bragging which is unusual for a politician. However, from time to time he puts people especially UNP in their due place which is a must.

          What I know is, those who established SAITM, those who supported SAITM and those were silent about SAITM all these years were the same people who protested against SAITM demanding it to be closed!
          They are the people who should be responsible for ruining the future of SAITM medical students.

    Yes, Good Sense, to hide all those what his kit and kins doing, about the behind the scenes spectrum deals with Killi Raja where the country lost billions and even Malaysian PM too upset about it for Dialog the biggest foriegn investor in the country which is majority own by Malaysian Telecom was not given a fair deal in this. When the whole world is going for small smart weapons and no war in the country, to make a killing they want to buy a 30 years old rust bucket warship which should go to the scrap yard. Then about the big killing by the ad company from state institutions, and those percentages taken by businessmen sibillings. To cover all those and divert the public attention and throw mud at Ranil and UNP bond commissions was formed. To be fair to all, he should inquire the bond deals from the onset for bond scam was invented and started long ago by MR and Cabaraals, and they minted billions for them out of it.

    I am extremely disappointed with this story that is speculative in its substance. It is possible that the source to which CT attributes the story is disarranged or is agenda driven. Obvious it is peddling this gobbledygook to advance either MR or RW interests.

    Many thought Sirisena was deranged when he agreed to be the common candidate. He was not elected to reform or lead the SLFP. He should work towards electoral reform and hold parliamentary elections as soon as possible by coaxing this corrupt parliament to dissolve it self as per the 19th amendment. There is no shame in losing elections if the people persist in returning corrupt MR cronies. If he seeks to tie -up with MR he is truly deranged with lust for power.

      “Deranged” and “Righteously Furious” are synonyms. It depends on your point of view.

      Maithri + Gota Alliance? Highly unlikely. What Rajapaksas need at this point is our sympathy, not the support for them to come back.
      In a similar situation, I mean, if it is Maithri who is the victim, will they listen to people or Maha Sangha or anybody? Never. They will never show any mercy. They would do anything to subdue anybody if that person poses any threat for them to come back to power.
      But, I am urging the President, if there is any move to arrest Gotabhaya, he should intervene to stop it and show mercy to them.
      .
      There are more pressing matters in the country. For eg: Prabhakaran is commemorated in the North in a move to lure Tamil Youth to a similar struggle. Did we lift the ban on LTTE for some reason? Otherwise, how could they commemorate this barbarian? Any move to regroup/resurrect/glorify terrorism should not be encouraged. We need to strengthen counter-terrorism laws and the government should never repeal PTA. If there is any pressure from the international community, we should ask them to prove that terrorism was vanquished in the world forever. Our PTA is applied not only to local terrorists but all other terrorists in the world. We should ask the international community or UNHRC or whoever who is demanding repeal of PTA to provide examples of any country which repealed its Terrorism Laws. Have a backbone, Government. As citizens, we have a legitimate right to demand the government to protect us not terrorists/their allies.
      .
      NPC Education Minister who refused to hoist the National Flag should be sacked. Only a terrorist may refuse to hoist the National Flag who should be answered with a bullet, otherwise every citizen is abide by the Constitution to honour the National Flag.

    Politics is a profession like any other profession which has to be hanldled with professionalism. The only politician in Sri Lanka who did professional politics had been Hon. J R J. Otner politicians who succeeded him failed because of that reason. They lacked uniqueness that JRJ had and put the country into turmoil by failing to understand the philosophy behind the 78 Constitution and engaged in misuse of unrestricted authority given to Head of State to direct the country towards economic stability and established democratic principles in the society. No doubt MS too will undergo the same predicament that his predecessors underwent that we witness now as he too lacks political professionalism that the country dearly requires.

    MS did dig his own grave. He should have :- (1) Punished the MR’s culprit gang including MR’s clan. After all that’s what people voted and expected of him (2) Not allowed that Rs 10,000 salary hike which created 1000s of other issues including the economy’s downfall (3) Taken control of the media. MR and his other looters took center stage everyday from Day-1 of MS’s administration while MS was in the 2nd or 3rd place. True, MR did everything to grab that but one or two punishments would’ve closed his mouth forever (4) Taken control of Sangha community. Put one or two dishonest Sangha thieves behind bars. (5) Allowed Bribery Commission to thrive….If he was really genuine in ending the non-ending corruption in politics and in our society, then it could’ve been achieved within 2 Administrations. Punish the culprits of previous regime and when they come to power they’ll punish the culprits of Yahapalanaya. End of the story !

    Maithri came as a one term president. He now wants to stick around. All these machinations are to create the suitable circumstances. RW, MS and CBK are running circles around everyone with their seemingly erratic pronouncememts to assuage their supporters. MR remains a headache they would all rather not have to deal with it. The moment one of MRs sons are sentenced, MR will negotiate his sentence for his silence. Wait for that moment before 2020.

    This is all BS article. President is president. The reality is different from what these articles and tge hyenas expecting these articles written. Howcome Ranil and UNP rats be helped by India. Then they should have helped last time make govt on their own. Why UNP along can not set up a govt. This article is propaganda. Mahinda Rajapakse and his mal phototuwa or JAckal opposition the JOKERS are also not welcome except a few. PResident should president powers to close the parliament. Keep only the good handful and run the country. JAckal opposition is saying they support unconditionally because JOkers need some pwoerful positions. UNP -rats want elections past. They are scared they would lose once voters find they all got houses and foreign bank accounts opened with PTL money. Ranil’s FCID weas a FARCe because he wanted to do the same Tricks that MAhinda Rajapakse and Cronies did. but, RANIL THE RAT was caught. YAHAPALANAYA was unsuccessful because it had friends working and not the professionals.
    The best option for Sri lanka is a care taker govt at present and not any one the existing politicians as all are rats, They are there play musical chairs and steal.

    It is UNP that will vanish this time. People will vote SLFP as a reject of UNP vote. JOKERS of the JAckal opposition are asking a place because of that they say they will help unconditionally. It is the people 6.2 million who voted president. PResident should be with people and not with any of these rats, JOKers or former thieves. There are good people inthe parliament, may be a handful PResident should not get caught in Propaganda.

    Gamarala should leave, the UNP should form their own government. The SLFP donkeys are useless as they have done nothing till date. Look at the UNP team, full of knowledge. I know some idiots here would comment about the bond phone calls, but trust me there is nothing wrong from the UNP part apart from RK. If the PM wanted to sabotage then why did he appoint the JVP fella as COPE chair. Guys this is a tricky situation for us to tackle, if we commit this mistake there is no turning back. If the worse that is MaRA and Gamarala form a coallition and come to power then the next revolution would be from the people suffering from hunger and poverty. It will be a nasty one :( So let the curse from the future generations not be on us. Please think and decide.

    MS has so far failed to deliver any of his promises. He has been hijacked by the greedy robbers of UNP and jumping frogs of SLFP that came over to make some hay for themselves. Otherwise who would ever trust rabble like John ston. Well, he has got some wrong doers arrested only to be wined and dined at the tax payers expense in the private hospital wing of the prison hospital or at the general hospital, to be released after fattening them more. Don’t know what MS could do to recover his lost reputation, except to retain his Exec Pres powers, clean up our society off this scum MPs, and only once cleaned, change the political system. If he cannot do it, it might be good for him to seek asylum in a foreign country. MR will surely return with popular vote, and then MS would be in trouble.

    You know well that you and RW have committed to walk tight rope. You seems to have forgotten the rope when your partner is away.

    Shame! Revisit the mission of 2015 more often . Three years gone. Go ahead; begin to Name and Shame all criminals.

    Mixed signals of President Sirisena must be keeping PM sleepless. PM trusted the President and gave full backing of UNP to elect him as the President. Once he was elected as the President he took over SLFP leadership and then in order to cover his betrayal of leaving SLFP and contesting under a separate ticket he invited those SLFP candidates who lost the election into the Parliament and the Cabinet. He further allowed part of the SLFP members to sit in the opposition there by strengthening Mahinda Rajapakse’s hand. Let alone allowing them to sit in the opposition he directly or indirectly recognized them as Joint Opposition in the Parliament thereby creating a second set of opposition members resulting in SL having two oppositions. One good thing he did was to appoint a Presidential Commission to investigate the bond issue, but at the same time terribly failed and did not appoint a Presidential Commission to investigate Rajapakse family and other JO and SLFP members illegal actions, killings and corruption. When historians look at all this how are they going to brand President Sirisena in the future -A TRAITOR WHO IS SO WEAK COULD NOT STAND TO DELIVER HIS OWN PROMISES TO THE VOTERS WHO ELECTED HIM PRESIDENT.
