Rajapaksa Distributes “Sil Redi” Again In Temples On The Eve Of Polls

An election monitoring organization, Campaign for Free and Fair Elections (CaFFE) has lodged a complaint against UPFA Kurunegala District candidate and former president, Mahinda Rajapaksa accusing him of distributing white Sil cloth at several temples in Kurunegala on Saturday and thus violating election laws.

Mahinda RMIn their complaint CaFFE says that former president had distributed white cloth at various temples in Kurunegala district while promoting his preference number at religious ceremonies, which amounts to a serious breach of polls laws.

According to the authorities, distribution of Sil Cloths and exhibiting propaganda material, while there is a ban on all election related promotions, amounts to both bribing the voters and breaching laws on polls related publicity.

According to CaFFE, Rajapaksa had arrived at the Bauddaloka Privena in Kurunegala Saturday morning and distributed Sil cloth among the devotees gathered at the temple premises.

The CaFFE said Rajapaksa and supporters had arrived in about 12 vehicles displaying his picture and preference number at several temples in Wariyapola, Demataluwa, Dickvehera, Wedanda, Colombagama and Randeniya.

According to CaFFE although Police officers at some places had cautioned the group Rajapaksa and entourage had acted disregarding such warnings, blatantly violationg polls laws.

According to CaFFE, the distribution of white cloth Saturday morning amount to a violation of election laws since the election propaganda activities ended midnight Friday.

In the last Presidential polls too Rajapaksa faction was accused of distributing Sil Cloths on a large scale and thus violating polls laws.

After the polls Lalith Weeratunga, Secretary to the former president and two others were accused of misusing Rs. 620 million of Telecommunication Regulatory Cxommission (TRC) money for election campaigns of Rajapaksa.

Along with Weeratunga, a coordinator to the former president Watinapaha Somananda Thera and former director general of the TRC Anusha Pelpita were accused of using the money on a project to distribute Sil clothing among voters on Duruthu Poya Day, four days before the January 8 presidential election.

    Did Clothes Remaining From Last President’s polls purportedly using state resources. Unfortunately MR’s camp do not realise the present laws with regard to elections. Awaiting to see how the elections commissioner would handle this incident.

        Why the bugger Dayana [Edited out]stayed silent all these weeks is a big puzzle to me.
        He sat with the ticks filled dogs since january 8th, but to stay silent may be giving a sign that the stupid creature turned his mind to u turn. Either he should be sick within his walls or the bugger may be isolated by all known to him.

          Dayan will have to keep his both ends soon now.
          This bugger had the belly feeling that Rajapakshe would be defeated and that could be the reason him no tot have be seen in lime light duuing the last two weeks. Anyways, UNP govt will never appoint the bugger to represent the nation. He and GOmmanpila were almost like BLOOD suckers by the behaviours all these weeks. No educated community would ever support DAyan J again. He cut his neck by being entwined with dogs.

      “…..former president had distributed white cloth at various temples in Kurunegala district while promoting his preferencial number at religious ceremonies……”

      I had a belly laugh! Mahinda promoting his preferential number on a “piece of cloth”?

      Man, if you ask Barak Obama, John Kerry, David Cameron, Narendra Modi, Stephen Harper, Tony Abbot, François Hollande, Erik Solheim, John Brennan (CIA), Rajinder Khanna(Raw), all notable international media and infamous in-house tourist Tony Blair, they will all tell you Mahinda’s preferential number is 16.

      Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa is a world renowned political figure. The entire world has been following his moves A to Z for the last 7 months. As for locals, the number 16 is engraved in people’s hearts and imprinted on their foreheads. For what “Redda” does he want to promote his number?

          A beast like you only want to see other people’s blood.

          We saw blood and pieces flesh all over the country for nearly 30 years. The man you want to see in blood save a country from a barbarian like you and brought peace for everybody including a cruel beast like you to live in peace.

            If I may correct you – instead of saving the nation, he saved his family and his kith and kin. But eating the full cake by himself without sharing to the due – he painted it to be seen as it is now. But only stupid folks and folks representatives like you would take some time to get it right. That is normal for Zimbabwe too. You should better be joined with the bugger for cleaning his overflowing toilet pits in Medamulana.

            Please check it for your knowledge, Sumanadasa s and your god father s are almost the same. Most abusive man of the nation – MR could twist your mind sets, but never atleast 6.2mio of the voters of this country.

            Srilanken Americans are ashamed when thinking about how your god father appointed a tea business man as srilanken ambassador to the US.
            There, Buruwpakshe never thought about the future of the country or nation. Google will teach you more. Good luck

        Only way out this thug to be stopped is put him behind courts.

        There are enough that would see not right in man s course of politics.

        Judges of the day should react accordingly. Murders to all highly abusive acts being carried out by the bugger et all on day light as if the law is on his hand – and he is above anyone.

      Rajapakshe thought he would be the man for the nation is faded away as a glass wall damaged. Anyways, there will be a strong opposition in the country will not easy RULING idiots to do the job – that is also good .. JVPers should learn more to win the hearts and minds of the people.

      If anyone else was appointed to lead the UPFA, they could win the election.

      Rajapakshe and their goons never thought that people would go against them.

      Let alone today, Mahindananda and Galle Manusha are compelled to grasp – people of this country would never allow their kind of idiots to lead the nation forever. As it is the case for any developing country- the views of stupid majority decides the nation, democracies such as ours have to suffer by that. But I really dont think Goons of Rajapakshe will have space to run amok anymore.

        My hope is newly formed govt will have powers to bring all the culprits of the former MR regime to the courts. If anyone regardless of parties should be brought before the courts safeguarding the justice

    We know Mr. Weeratunga and others responsible for this “Sil Redi” affair during the last Presidential election ,were summoned and recorded statements. But do we know what action followed that investigation? We do not know and never told what action was taken in that matter. If that “SIMPLE” case was handled expeditiously and those responsible were punished, this type of repeat performances would never have taken place. That is the problem with this Yahapalanaya under Ranil. When “Big Wigs” are involved there is no action; but if a “simple Simon” is involved we would have seen very expeditious action and punishment. You mark my words, all those cases where BIG WIGS are involved would be dragged for years and years, until the people forget and slowly disappear from the public domain. We will never see the end of the tunnel.

      Mr Weeratunga was one of the close confidiant of Raja who would even eat the extrements of Raja to please him. I could not see him appearing on the screens- very same nature of making white and black was his nature. These men deserve to be put behind the bars for all the HIGH PROFILE frauds have been mapped by them.

    A desperate king trying his cheap tactics. I am just wondering if this is the last day I can comment on CT freely. If the Rajapases come again we wil not have this great freedom to express our views freely without harm. May Sri Lanka vote wisely for real freedom.

    Today and our many tomorrows should be ours to conquer.

      If we are in Rome, we need to behave as Romer.. is a saying known to all. So why cant Bugger MR respect the laws being in practice today – in the current govt ?

      This alone proves that the bugger is no fit to lanken law bound governance.

    This guy is such a crafty political monster. People are smarter than ten years ago. His Silver Redi will not bring him more votes. Probably people will send him home naked in his amudey.just two more days and he is in line to face all the music that will be played in his ears.

    This kind of hypocratic leaders we had never in the country. See, breaking all laws, to go for doing that – as a leader is respectless actually, People should teach him the basics. I think this time, he will learn it… entire world including local fractions try their best to learn him a lession even if poor people are deceived by his behaviours.

    Sinhalese still vote for MR for winning the war on Tamils not only in this elections, but for the next 25 years. What MR has done is a historic thing in 2009. 40,000+ civilians 10,000+ LTTErs…and so on.All wiped out to keep the country under Sinhala rule. Don’t worry about war crimes, crimes against humanity, human rights violations, thuggery, kidnappings, white vans, corruption, etc, Sinhala people will still vote for MR. Because, subjugating Tamils is much more important to us than all other stuff!

    His devotees around him need them on the polls day
    because FCID without mercy stripped them all naked in
    public . So at least allow MARA to wrap around some
    “Sil Redhi” to them and after the polls of course they
    can be taken off again !

    MR just cannot stop himself can he.

    Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    If he hadn’t been greedy and was in such haste to achieve his 3rd term….he would still have been in power.

    Sri Lanka should be eternally grateful to the idiot Astrologer who gave him the wrong advice.

    Hilarious that a former President should believe such utter nonsense.

    Even before the elction this power crazy man was distributing bribes at the temples.

    Thank you Karma you’ve done a great job here.

    Wonder of he has any clocks left over…What a laugh.
