Rajapaksa Ordered Helicopters, Sirisena’s Attempt To Implicate Ranil Falls Flat

It was Mahinda Rajapaksa and no one else that called for and used a helicopter to fly to Hambantota the day after he lost the Presidential Election in January 2015, according to sources close to the Rajapaksa family.

‘Sirisena took oaths on the evening of January 9th and until then Mahinda Rajapaksa was the President of the country. As was usual practice he had asked a member of his security detail, Captain Tissa Wimalasena to call for helicopters,’ sources pointed out, stating that Sirisena was distorting facts and making unfair accusations.

The controversy over Rajapaksa using Air Force helicopters arose when Sirisena, speaking at a ceremony to commemorate the late Ven Madoluwawe Sobitha Thero, said that the Air Force Commander had told him that helicopters had been released to his predecessor Mahinda Rajapaksa to Hambantota after he, Rajapaksa, lost the presidential election ‘by so-and-so’ (ahavala) who said that he was conveying a request made by Sirisena.

Although Sirisena claimed ignorance and hinted that it was Ranil Wcikremesinghe who was responsible for this, he is on record having stated on April 09, 2016 that it was he who had given two helicopters to Rajapaksa on that occasion. He even observed on that occasion that ‘nowhere in the world has a head of state ben given helicopters to go home after an election defeat.’

    I think Mahinda Rajapakse behaved like how aUS PResident behaves. After the Term ended he is giventhe Airforce 1 to fly and land at his home turf. I don’t think no one care about using the Helicopter. PArticularly Mahinda Rajapakse was living Ferdinand Marcos OR Chillie’s Pinochet life. The important thing what was cooking at the same time. At the same time, Ranil wickramasinghe had planned how he should finish the 19th amendment whch makes him the Executive Prime ministyer and Ranil and GALLEON-RAVI had planned the Bond Scam with Arjun Mahendran on the instructions some foreign agency. What I heard Even todate, it is difficult for PResident to work with Ranil as he talks something and go and do something else.

        Rohan,
        you should be an idiot to have forgotten everythin at once.

        Remmeber at the time Rajapakshe was driven away, the costs that the presidential secretariat has to waste way billions.
        The current president has reduced it to 25%.
        He even left presidential office for somewhere to reduce the wastes.
        And never forget all the risk he has taken…. public secret if the bugger would have been re elected, he would have killed anyone he thought was right.
        Mahinda Rajapkashe is a born rascal and high crimnal.
        He does not have any ,mercy when it goes to take on revenge. Best example is how he treated war won army commander.
        All is not that old to forget man. This ballige putha should have been sent to Jail on the very first day itself. Then things could have been milder by today.

          With all that so calld wasted money people were not burdened with excesive taxes and fines that this government has imposed on the people of this country. May be it is not a problem.
          for those living in London or such places but people of the this country are suffering greatly due Sirisena’s simple government.

        This itsy bitsy little tiff started after Ranil like the “gentleman” he is, informed Sirisena that he plans to run for the presidency. Now, let us refresh our memories ……… Sirisena contested for the presidency with the assurance to abolish it and to be a one term president.

        Sirisena shot himself in the foot a long time ago with his extraordinary attack on the head of his own FCID, Dilrukshi someone ………… and that’s out-Trumping Trump while Trump was still in the wilderness ……….. where do you think Trump learned to attack his own FBI and the DOJ? The Donald watches TV 24/7 not for nothing …….. He learns.

        SIrisena is a dead man walking ……… and the realization is slowly dawning on him ………… he is losing his cool …….. and now hurling accusations every which way and clutching at straws.

        And my boy Ranil is forcing theatre-owners to supply 3-D glasses to patrons ………. and free Wi-Fi to the young to speed-up the romantic liaisons ……….he is one boy who has the pulse of the nation in his fingertips ……….knows the pressing needs of the people at all times.

        It never dawns on Lankans that people are in power for life not only in far off dictatorships ……….. by jumping ship at the appropriate time and hanging onto the right coattails most of these buggers have been ministers from the time I was a toddler ….. and that’s before the dawn of time

        It’s a lost cause ……. the ultra neo-rationalists among you should have realised by now that …….we can’t do anything with this bungling, bumbling, corrupt, imbecilic lot of pols …….there is not a hope in sight …………..

        continued

        Only solution is to wipe the slate clean and start anew ………. Wijewwera, Prabakarn et al ……….. had the right idea but the wrong implementation ……… if history is any teacher, the men who get rid of corrupt rulers are they themselves is not the solution. Things only get worse. The countries that are socially more evolved and are ahead of others ………. and function well have no iconic/messianic figures but only good “systems” in place ……..rulers come and rulers go; the system in place goes on without a hitch ( ironically …..we had such system handed to us at independence …… then our local Einsteins thought they were smarter and could tweak it for better )

        Only the newborn, the Christians, the Evangelicals, the Buddhists, the Muslims, the Hindus, the Marxists ……….. believe that The Donald is a messiah and a saviour ……….. their minds are already conditioned to accept messianic “saviours” ……. the simple plebs out here know him for what he is ……. just a bull-shitter.

        From the safety of far-away here ……….I am all for revolution …….. I’ll support you guys like the LTTE money collectors, the JVP money collectors, the SLFP, UNP, The Bud money collectors ……….. as long as you do the fighting ……….. it’s just that I like my life and limbs a little more ……….. that’s the smarts in The Smart Patriotism………………

        Ah! where would we be if there were no Lankans in Lanka?

        You should be a great example to reflect the thoughts of fully ignorant or uneducated masses in the country. How dare you to compare NK leader with a man who has restored democracy toda yin the country. Our problem with him has been somthing else. he is not yet responsive to his pledges on getting high crimnals.
        That is what disturbs us. No means we would give our mandates to former murderer just because we dont like Sirisena s slow moves towards getting the sharks by everymeans.

        Not even 10% among lanken voter eligible population is aware of the ground situation in lanken politics. Over 90% are abused by media men working for their favourite politicians. Today, Derana and Hiru would bring any unncessary issues of former brutal leader, but just forgetting facts about the grieving problems.
        Punnaku eaters of your nature would not see it right even if you would become old.
        That is the typcial problem in this soceity.
        They prefer a murderer to a weaker person.
        For me I would never allow Rajapkseh killers to get back and ruin this nation.

      Who is THE elected president of the nation ? And why a president has to fall that level to say, that he does not know anything.

      But yet he is to reveal why he did not agree SF to be the minister for law and order. ?

      But a year or two ago, he himself made public statments to have given Rajapakshe two helicopters and today as if he is born yestreday to come with … that he does not know who to have ordered the two… all these I feel current President may have been captured by Alzheimer disease in between
      Besides, Executive president cant just leave the kind of excuses … because he has to deliver not to leave from the situaton having let it happened that far.
      I have lost my respect on this president, and I have the feeling the man is now manpulated by Rajapakshe rascals for their come back.
      Sirisena can leave srialnka after his term if his life is in danger.
      If Murderous Rajaakshes come back is a threat to him, that way, Mr Sirisena can still deliver for what he is appointed to.
      That is to catch the criminals by the horns.
      Please do so, you have 18 more months to do the job to the best.

      How can a president face th enation, if what was being uttered by him is a blatant lie.

      Unlike good old days, today we have it black and white what the same mouth piece droped down onthe issue, and how it is different from what he has to say today …
      So the president Sirisena is caught on the spot.
      So how can the people of this country further expect him to deliver ?
      He has been made a caricature by Rajapakshe gundas.
      Now only way out would be to move back to the criminal group.

      Would people really want to bring the former thugs back into ruin the nation ?

      Then why over 6.2 Mion voter elibibles stood against former hoodwinker number one ?
      I think even if we would not like Sirisena, we must not pave the way former stupid men to ruin this nation again.
      Mintories would never give him a chance.
      Only way out for him would be to build up coalition again and again.
      I think we the folks are very unlucky NOT ot have good leaders to lead us the highest literate nation in the SOUTH Asian region.

      If a country to move forwards there should be an Unity within coalition or govt.

      THat unity has long been dissapeared by date. So president just adds his thoughts no second to his previous statements. He has promised not once several dozens of times, that he would never be backwards to punish former provable crimnals. Alone Thadjudeen case as he said is there is someone who would stand against that being finalized proves…. president himself knowing the ground situation, he seems to be ignoring it.
      Alone Thadjudeen case investigation would have been more than enough if let proper investigation to catch the brutal family. Not just sons but also first lady had been part of the high crime,- as relliable sources prove.
      We need a president with a backbone … who can STAND against high criminals.
      You are no means the person to do the job. You just got elected as Pres Wijetunga got elected. You have not even made efforts to do the job properly. just let words to flow … and enjoy the moment only.

      I wish if this president knew the responsiblity of his position.

      I have following question to him :

      1) If things according to him would not work or move forward, what action he took over the course of time.
      Why the ministry of law and order was kept away from War won army commander as the most suitable candidate ?

      2) If according to you the Thadjudeen case is suspended not having investigated properly.
      HOW CAN YOU GUYS FURTHER INSIST THAT LANKEN JUDICIARY IS INDEPENDENT ?

      3) If nothing is done sofar to feel you satisfied, what actions you would next take to iron out and speed up the process towards punishing high criminals as promised.
      WHY YOU ALWAYS PASS THE BALL TO OTHER THE OTHER.. WHAT IS YOUR ROLE AS THE PRESIDENT OF THIS COUNTRY ?

      I think lankens in general more into malcious glee… at the time Gerneral Sarath Fonseka was seen wearing a JUMPER… people were amusing to see it even if he was the real war hero, who sacrificied his blood and sweat, but it was rewritten by mEGAalo et al him to be the barbarian. :: and people danced on the street on the tunes of real barbarians ( Rascal Rajapakshes).
      Just after the new govtbeing formed, the system has been more decent even if the king of robbers and criminals were arrested, they were passed to the POLICE hosptal… today, they have become the heroes…. that was a mistake..
      I think we the folks dominated by rascals should be treated not that decent, when being arrested, to the mannner that SF was treated.
      Meaning Rajapkshes should have been treated that way… then the current duo would have succeeded accroding to them.
      Civilized cutlures would not be welcome by the majority of folks inthe country. sinc e masses are like thugs. and criminal friendly thought bearers, their just outer cover are buddhsts.
      If questioned not many would respect the other.
      Just because they are somewhat weakened or gulliable, they just paya smile.
      In the reality people in general are malicious and evil minded.
      This is what I see whenever I get from Europe to SL my 2 wks stay back in Home country.
      Please add your thoughts to see, what I am feeling is no right ?

      President Maithripala Sirisena wants to ban Social Media because people who use the internet are too smart for him to fool. They are critical of the government while commending the good done by them as well. Why can’t he spend his time and energy to see that the Rajapaksa Criminal Network is prosecuted!? Can he tell us why he has not done anything to do so!? Do we need to bring down international experts, judges and lawyers!? Just do so without passing the blame onto Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasingha.

      If they had balls, they could take Rajapakshe to a separate place and investigate all the allegiations levelled at him on that day itlsef.

      Had the duo reacted that way, I believe, lankens would have left them more respect, since to that time, people wanted Rajapakshe to be beheaded for all the harm he deliberatedly made to this nation.
      Today people have forgotten all the burden but it is the nature of people in our lost island. They are no grateful to anyone.

      ” Burglar of the Bank is a label that is hard to erase. Who is the bigger villain ?”

      I have been trying to understand what was going on in the Bond scam without much success.

      Is the scam hype is all about unrealized paper profit/loss or actual money profits or losses?

      Surely there must be some form of procedure to authorise and monitor every large scale transaction especially cash coming in and going out of the Central Bank.

It was all a US/Indian ‘gundu’ you fell victim to. US knew Ranil had no chance of winning any power in this country ever, so they hitched him to the ‘Modi coat’ of a frustrated Sirisena to get him there and implement their agenda.It all came unstuck because the American Nazis have no money to put their mouths were. Ranil had to crawl back to China and break the Central Bank for party funding.

      Now every one is screaming like all their balls are on fire. Go inside and pray to your Anglican god.

    It is petty minded on the part of President Sirisena to harp on the use of helicopters by the former President Mahinda Rajapaksa. It is common courtesy that ex- head of government/state are given few privileges on leaving office. Whether Mahinda Rajapaksa deserved such courtesy is a different kettle of fish in the light of how he treated his predecessor treated Chandrika Kumaratunga.

    We don’t know what is here in the clip. We can comment on the here & there news of the Colombo Media.
    Malaysian government arrested the previous regimes criminals. It did not happen in Lankawe. Period. Lankawe petty politics is attempting to prove Daily Mirror is wrong and thus hope to turn all critics away from them. I think, by now, the Editors might have done something about that accusation of the exaggeration in Daily Mirror. So we do not need to answer that, especially the number appeared in the Newspaper. But what bothers one is the New Crook nullified all what happened in Malaysia and made it equal to Lankawe Zero Casualty. But this crook openly, in stages and in statements said that somebody was convulsing to have arrested the War Crime Accused Heroes by some other means but it was he who foiled it all. My question is, is that what Mahathir is also saying in Malaysian Media? Is Mahathir also claiming in Malaysian Media that it was he who switched off the electricity to UN electric Chairs? What game this guy playing by avoiding the real question. He is saying it the Law and Oder Minister and AG office blocking the investigations. Can he tell who appointed the Law and Order Minister? Can he appoint, now, Ponny as the Minister of Law and Order? If foreign countries blocking Ponny’s appointment, can he name those countries?

    But nevertheless, we recognize Daily Mirror’s crook intention of comparing Lankawe to Malaysia. First thing, but smallest is, Mahathir is also known as Mr. 5%. He too is not clean. But that is not the issue, here. Lankawe criminals are war criminals. Including New Crooks name said to have appeared in the withdrawn OISL report with other 42 War Criminals listed.

    Daily Mirror was on its attempt to down play the serious murderous crimes of Lankawe to Malaysian corruption, but sadly got caught and stripped naked by the one whom they tried to save. That is Colombo Media and Lankawe leaders. We leave it within them.
    100 days game is the tape Sampanthar and Sumanthiran played in the North East to gain support for the CC. It was Tamils, who brought to the power this New Crook. Now Sumanthiran has to answer to Tamils about the doubt New King has on the 100 days election manifesto. Will Sumanthiran Comment of this speech?
    It is, still not clear, when he had 142 MPs on his side and he didn’t do, but how is he explaining that he would have done if the Parliament election was held on the 10th of January? Didn’t if the Parliament Election was held on January 10th, SLFP would have been wiped out with zero MPs for the barbaric crime SLFP was committing on those days? If he thinks on the January 10th election if SLFP would have come back stronger, why did he leave the SLFP lonely? If had taken out 100 or so MPs out of SLFP and he had won the EP election, now one can argue that Sinhala mass intention was only to defeat Old Royal family only, but they wanted to preserve SLFP. He still seems to have not included in his speech an explanation of why Slap Party swept all LGs councils and SLFP got nothing.
    Didn’t this New Crook let the Old King to lead the election in August thinking Old had rebuilt his image? Didn’t Old refused to hand over the EP and SLFP leadership to this New Crook in January and eventually Ranil and Chandrika made those transfers to take place?

    ‘ Nowhere in the world is a defeated candidate given a helicopter’ I should add that nowhere in the world except for United States,
    a country that can afford such spending, a defeated candidate is given a palatial house in the capital. Sri Lanka is a third world country with a poor economy and it is sad when they squander the treasury to feather these defeated politicians and their families. It is time to learn from developed democratic countries the many anomalies in our ‘Presidential Constitution.’

    I listened to the entire speech and he appeared to be very “worried” mostly due to “Big Led Down” and “Frustrations” in not being able to do what “Yahapalanaya” expected to do. That “Frustration” could best be understood from the very revelation he made as regards the “Invitation” that was never received by him and the admittance of that very fact by the organizer named “Ravi Jayawardane”. I could hardly “excuse” him; but at the same time feel “sorry” for beginning a “Mission” in the “Unknown Territory” so infested with “Shady Characters” who hails from the “Elite” ; but with “crooked” motivations of “serving” a “class” not known to him. Some of them were in fact in that audience, with “honourable” invitations and he even addressed some of them by name. Of the whole speech, one best “shot” was: “Did Rev. Sobitha want to “ROB” the Banks? He also revealed how Cabinet papers were brought into “ROB” the other Banks and named those – Bank of Ceylon; Peoples’ Bank; National Bank and State Mortgage Bank. He could have acted like a “President”; but prevented mainly because of the “Unholy Alliance” and the “Kakul Maatu” MR brought into play through the JO with assistance of those around him as “Advisers”; “Coordinators” . To say the least he could not even get a “Proper” Secretary to lead a team and he is, at the moment in the receiving end. There is no recovery for you Sir.

      You should not belong to the catergory of JIms or Sachs right ?

      You perfectly know Thrisu, in the constitution it is not allowed to sack PM that way.

      And instead you could better raise the question, if RW is the big problem, why Prez himself as the Executive being elected by the nation (6.2mio) cant have guts to do the proper thing in timely manner.
      Now years are gone, but to point the finger at PM is beyond silly or not.

      Would you attack your colleagues, if you as the group leader for your project would not have done the due…. no ? Like wise, Richmondian, please get my point not falling to the level of uneducated commenters.. that Presz is made caricature to this date.
      Ballige putha Rajapakshe may have hidden talks with SILLY spineless president … or MY3 himself should have some wrong doings done during the brutal admistration of MR…. all can well be MS not to have done THE DUE as should have been.

      i think the 19th amendment makes it very difficult for the president to sack the PM.

    According to President’s speech one may have a problem to understand who has the executive powers weather it is President or PM. Now he is behaving not like a statesmen and just behaving like village gossip type “Ammandi” Ranil took a vice decision and ordered others to not to reply to President’s speech. I suspect President is suffering from inferiority complex as he is no match either with Mahinda Rajapaksha or RW. Also he is having a poor memory problem. At the earlier stage he has forgotten that he is the executive President in the Country and worked as he is still a Gramasevaka in Polonnaruwa. Now he realized that he is the executive President but easily forgotten how he became a President. I think he is more suitable for “Suuththara Puncha’s” character.

      Lapatiyo…

      he may be suffering from Alzheimer. Very same president has louded on the item a year ago ther ehe he had proudly presented the manner how he offered two helicopters to the mafia boss.
      I have no doubt if Mr Sirisena s both ends have been cross implanted recently ?

      I nevertheless agree with RW today, even lot more, he has asked his party men not toeven talk about anything on the topic.
      That is more than decent, since he knows that President is a fool.

      1.He must first explain why he chose to stand against MARA.
      2.Why did he stay with MARA to the last minute if MARA
      was not up to the mark ?
      3.Why did he , A SEASONED POLITICIAN , choose to live with Ranil
      AND UNP , despite having opposed UNP policies all his life ?
      4. How is that he stands against his party man , borrows a brand
      from a paralyzed party and then accept UNP votes without joining
      UNP or leaving the SLFP ? No big magic here for us to figure it out !
      5. What did you do to Swan ?
      6. Is it not yet clear what he wanted from this exercise ?
      7. Serving the country or self service ?

      Ranil and UNP too can not escape from these questions except No:2 .

    This shows the world loud and clearly how Sirisena has become a plain and cold habitual liar. He just thinks that people forget everything, and listen and take note of the utter rubbish they put out. Things are note same like earlier times, now what one say and do is available digitally in the cyberspace so any one could pull it out in splits second. Man is in bad shape, unable to take criticisms, and shifting blames to all and sundry, this is not a good trait of a good leader. He gatercrushed into this event to tell all lies, all must have pitty on the man for his sad plight.

    The Chief villain of both My3 and Ranil is GOOD GOVERNANCE only with
    some little good in it. The slogan GOOD GOVERNANCE was their mousetrap .
    It is something they can never deliver and they both and all of 225 know
    this . Then , why this slogan ? They thought they can hoodwink the voters
    with unrealistic reliefs which are politically motivated and badly calculated.
    They thought people will forget everything that was said on platforms for
    the bribery package in the name of relief . My 3 shouldn’t blame Ranil for
    not dismissing the parliament , It should be My3’s first job to do and he is the
    one who missed it by appointing Ranil as PM . All this crisis is due to that
    first blunder ! UNP scratched his back and he scratched Ranil’s back and that
    was the deal ! And now punches and kicks when you fail and the worst you
    do more harm than you alleged your enemy did ! Another election is around ,
    and you are making noises now ! Same old tricks that failed you in LG poll !
    You can’t send Ranil home and Ranil can’t get rid of you ! The fools have to
    watch your drama ? The ones you call INTELLIGENT VOTERS ?

    PTL boss Palisena was paid a Bonus of 65 Million LKR in June 2015.
    Another bonus in July 15 .
    Obviously those are the performance based payments for good work Pilsena did in Dr Ranil’s 100 Yahapalana Fast Track Program…
    Now Plisena has 24 Big Ass Businesses in Colombo churning Billions of Ruppiahs, which include Breweries, Investment Houses, Insurance Companies and Media and T elecomunication outfits.
    What a dazzling array of diversified businesses.
    The Chairman and CEO Mr Geffry and Mr Arjun Aloysios were so pleased with their Company performances, that they issued special Bonuses as well to 118 Yhapalana MPs and high Officials.with cash cheques for at least One Million Rupphias each.
    Field Marshall Ponny was lucky to get a Bonus too.
    What a stellar performance.
    Coming all that from poor Inhabitants who have been busting their arses to save it in EPF for their retirement , makes it even more dazzlingl.
    And these Duds are arguing about who ordered the Helicopters….HaHaHaHaaa…

    It is absurd to debate to establish who the bigger villan is when both our complicit in derailing the mandate and aspirations of the people given to them in 2015. MR, MS , RW , Gota or Basil are not the future of Sri Lanka. Please put this out of your mind people. Let’s direct our enrenrgies identifying the the right person to take Sri Lanka forward. We need a fresh thinker and a non-politician to leads us beyond 2020.

      Gune,

      “We need a fresh thinker and non-politician to lead us beyond 2020.”
      Fresh thinker into politics but without politics ? “Let us direct our
      energies identifying…….” This one is good one except for “energies”
      because it is a country of malnutrition ! So we don’t have the needed
      energy and all our attempts are unenthusiastic ! Our education and
      religions have been hired to misleading the gullible common man
      to live with whatever thrown away at them and this is a curse ! We
      have today a country that doesn’t care about itself . Examples are
      plenty . Take one or two – we have roads but no road discipline .
      Public transport fully cramped . Go to a Govt hospital and see if any
      respectable human can stay for treatment , fully over crowded and
      not up to any good standard ! THERE ARE PRIVATE HOSPITALS IN
      THE COUNTRY THAT CAN BE EMULATED . MAJORITY OF DOCTORS
      WHO WORK IN THOSE PRIVATE HOSPITALS ARE FROM THESE
      GENERAL HOSPITALS . AT LEAST THEY SHOULD MAKE A NOISE
      FOR THE PATIENTS . UNIVERSITIES AND DOCTORS STAGE STRIKES
      ENDLESSLY FOR THEIR ISSUES BUT NOT FOR IMPROVEMENTS OF
      QUALITY OF PUBLIC LIFE LIKE THESE. IF ONE WHOLE FIVE YEAR
      TERM WAS DEDICATED TO PERFECT PUBLIC HEALTH CARE , THIS
      IS AN EASY ACHIEVEMENT . All you need is a strong determination
      triggered by a sense of shame about the conditions of our hospitals,
      schools and the whole of public transport system . Improvements
      on these three alone will make a revolution in public behaviour
      patterns I suppose .

    Helicopter issue is nonsensical. Maithree was not the President at the time. Ranil was not the PM. PM was DM Jayaratne. There was no need for MR to get their permission to use a helicopter when he was in office. In all fairness, MR deserved a courtesy of a helicopter ride to his hometown. After all he was the Executive President of Sri Lanka for 10 years. In any other country, nobody wouldn’t even mention about it. There is a saying that in victory, you should show compassion. Both Maithree and Ranil lack human civility and decency.
    .
    I think Maithree’s problem is he or the others who supported “Hansaya” never thought MR would make a come back. I am sure their aim was to run the country until 2030 without any hassle. Everything went wrong with Mahinda’s returning to politics. Maithree I think never thought he will have to face the “Yaka” again. Anyways, “Yaka” looks sweet now. I don’t think there is any reason for Maithree to worry about anything except one. That is, he will never get a helicopter ride to Polonnaruwa at the end of his term. :D :D :D
    .
    Yahapalanaya government is in an infinite quagmire.
    Maithree and Ranil are like kindergarten kids. Ranil looks like helping Maithree to find his lost chocolate that he ate the previous day.
    Maithree is a weak President with strong words. Every time he sees his government is in trouble, he drops a bombshell to occupy his political opponents and the general public who will keep on talking about it for weeks. As the government is at a standstill with only Ministers signing MOU with foreign companies at top speed, this is the only way to leap from the standstill.
    How many more confessions and lambastings are pending?

    Does he think that talking like this would endear him to the people and that he will be able to win the next election?

    “He even observed on that occasion that ‘nowhere in the world has a head of state been given helicopters to go home after an election defeat.’

    He is wrong. Ex-President Obama was given a jet to take himself and wife home after the inauguration of New President Trump.

    Now these guys are fighting this petty fight at Sobitha Thero’s commemoration day. Nobody knows why Sobitha Thero died. It was said Old Royals kept in forcefully at hospital and poisoned him that why he fell sick. But later it was said that he was so badly discarded by the Yahapalanaya government he brought in & that worked up on him and he died.
    New King is talking about 47 UNP MPs. But in the CC election he was elected only by UNP and TNA voters. It is not the SLFP’s voters, even the 142 SLFP MPS also did not vote for this guy. What is the hold up for him, then, to make the UNP as the ruling party? Aren’t they were the same people elected him as EP? He did not win one single SLFP votes in EP election, in Parliament election and in LG election. Isn’t it time for him to quit instead of eating on the UNP plate and excreting in UNP plate? All what he did in LG election was, he was cutting the branch he was sitting on. Now he has fallen down & have hurt himself a badly. If somebody telling him what he has done, he doing what the monkey did to the weaver bird.
    Chandrika said that anybody would have won the election. The case there was they were looking for a common candidate. It has to UNP, SLFP, TNA, SLMC and upcountry rep. She was able to muster all other parties, but SLFP was under her enemy’s control and she could not. So Chandrika plugged this guy from SLFP. Chandrika thought that will help to muster SLFP votes too. But the reality has proved it was not. It is his weakness that he is not being able to muster any SLP votes. Now SLFP is facing death. Then why is he blaming Chandrika or Ranil?

    That time all the media said he wanted to leave SLFP because of the New Son Prince involvement in women and the fight with a DIG’s son. If that is correct, instead he fighting with Ranil and Chandrika who helped him get out of SLFP, he needs to fix his damaged image. He was, as per media, used by Old Royals at that time. When it was time to kill White Flag Surrenders, Old Royals told him to take it over and finish the job. He did it. Then, like in the case of Ponny, Old Royals revenged this guy too. Ponny feels he has self-respect and does want to go back to Old Royals. This guy probably doesn’t have self-esteem or dignity so want to realign with Old Royals. So he is picking on Ranil and Chandrika.

    They told that they have a file on this guy’s crimes. This guy did not challenge “Then bring it out to Court, we can see what it is at the Court” but this guy said “I too have a file on them”. Then this guy never surrendered his file to AG to investigate. Now he is talking all rubbishes.
    When they were looking for CC they said they wanted a candidate abolish the EP in three months & should conduct the election, with in three months. Then we suggested in that case CV will be only honest who would sit on as EP and put his signatures to abolish it. They wanted a real Sinhala Buddhist. Now is all these halabula? Didn’t we at that time say this is what going to happen? We even told that we were not Sumanadasa Abeygunawardena so our guessing could become accurate too.

      He has beeen a president who knows nothing but to make public statements OF THE nature he did it again.
      These politicians have only lip services. I respect that Rajitha S did lot more to Health care sector as a minister of Health under this MS. else other ministries di not do that much of course except MINSTRY OF external affairs.

    Sirisena should keep his cool like a cucumber and move ahead with his task with stern focus and grit determination like a stealth rock, instead of weaning like a cry baby. It should be dog barks, and caravan moves. Churchill once said, if one stopped to throw stones at all the barking dogs, one never would reached the destination.
