President Violates Protocol And Keeps PM In Dark About Programmes In Mullaitivu

President Maithripala Sirisena visited Mullaitivu this morning and took part in a number of programmes relating to the Northern province development.

The notable absentee during the President’s programme in Mullaitivu this morning was Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe who also holds a position as the Northern Province Development Minister.

When contacted by Colombo Telegraph, the Prime Minister’s Office confirmed that Wickremesinghe was not invited to attend the President’s event in Mullaitivu today.

“The Prime Minister has been kept in the dark about the President’s visit to Mullaitivu. Under usual circumstances, it is the subject minister who coordinates regional events of this nature. In this case, however, the usual protocol has not been followed for some reason,” a senior official from the Prime Minister’s Office said.

Although Sirisena did not invite the subject ministers, he invited several Cabine ministers from the UNP including Daya Gamage and Rishad Bathiudeen. In addition, he also invited Northern Province Governor Suren Raghavan and three opposition MPS namely Dayasiri Jayasekera, Angajan Ramanathan and Cader Masthan.

During the visit, Sirisena launched a drug prevention campaign in the Northern province, granted financial assistance to schools in the Mullaitivu area affected by recent floods and released over 1000 acres of government-occupied lands for the public use.

    Surprising MS did not take MR along with him who has been making a lot of noise about RW and TNA MP MAS recently.

      CT,

      Do, Sirisena has been violating protocol. Is it illegal and unconstitutional to violate protocol?

      Please look at the big picture, the elephant in the room, the Illegal and unconstitutional coup, and the parliament had not yet impeached and prosecuted the coup conspirators, and not abolishing the Ececutive presidency that produced such madman.

      Oh, Oh, Oh, Sirisena is not following protocol!

        Now RW is complaining that MS is interfering in his area of work. This is exactly what Tamil provincial councils have been complaining over the years about the interference of central government in their affairs. This should be good lesson for RW who at least in the future allow Tamils to conduct their affairs on their own.

        Both side (Sirisena and RanilW) are behind these coups (if they are coups)! That’s why both sides are silent and not ready to prosecute either side.
        Sirisena made a mistake by jumping to the UNP side as common candidate and RanilW was wrong to approve him as the CC. Both are paying a heavy price (mentally and politically) now. Grass-root level UNPers or SLFPers are not ready to listen to them any more.
        The general UNP voters are very upset and have been joining the Pohottuwa slowly but surely. SLFP voters had a good choice and easily went to Pohottuwa at the last local elections.
        Sirisena and RanilW will be the biggest losers at any future election.
        Most of those who write comments regularly are just arm-chair critics who know nothing about the ground realities of Sri Lanka. I invite them at least to go to SL once a year, experience the situation, and make genuine comments.

        Amarasiri – How can we expect this bastard to follow protocol when he has SID (Severe Intellectual Disability)? Can Daham translate my comment in Sinhalese and give it to his father to READ?

    It is a high handed act of the President, not to have invited the subject minister, who
    happened to be the Prime Minister of the country and most importantly the MP of the area. He is deviating from usual protocol for some reason.Stern action should be taken by RW against those UNP ministers, who attended the event, without his permission.

    He must have had 2020 Presidential election in mind when he visited North, expecting those people to vote for him, once again, which is not going to happen even if he releases the war prisoners and all the confiscated lands as any one insulting TNA in their territory will not be tolerated by the people . His dictatorial ways of late must be condemned by all peace loving people.

    You bloody well know that it is the Lankan Armed Services who keep MS in the dark who in turn keep us in the dark.
    The Armed Services are answerable only to GR.

    Protocol?

    That word does not exist in the vocabulary of SL politicians. As far Presidents of SL (past & present) are concerned, they have the perception of being next to god & can do anything they like. Sirisena is only a close second to MR when it comes to intelligence, that is apart from the cunning & devious traits necessary for accumulating wealth, which are second to none.

    Ranil is a TOP CLASS Mafia boss and is a big thief. Even for PResident, he removed two Peole from his group because they were caught in Some bribes. Nopne was fired from From PM Office. ROSIE was working in the PM office. Her son was accused of giving reports to PTL. Instead ROsie became DUMB andCORRUOT MAYORESS for Colombo.

    When you don’t act fast and intelligently, these things usually happen. No action was taken for siri and those who involved in coup so they will somehow do thigs to get rid of this idition pm. This pm is lethargic and this os all his faults. It seems like no body can work with this ranil.

      He deliberately avoided the kith and kin of those who were made to disappear during and after the war.
      If he is dreaming, that’s good. People need functioning brain to dream.
      However he could stay at home and dream.
      The Vanni people are dreaming about the day their kith and kin are being released from detention, the perpetrators brought to book, their gold and cash returned, ……………
      Its simple if Hopper Sirisena catch Gota by his b***s ……………….rebrand him as mass murderer (from 1987 to 2015), Mahindawamsa enforcer, …………….

    President knows very well that PM is not interested in Drug Prevention. Why waste public money by inviting such a person. If it was an event of LGBT, President would have invited him.
