The convener of the militant Buddhist monk brigade Ravana Balaya Iththakande Saddhatissa had been given three vehicles a month amounting to almost Rs 2 million a year, whilst prominent Irida Lankadeepa journalist Prasanna Sanjeewa Thennakoon of the Wijeya Group’s vehicle cost was over Rs 800,000. These figures only for 2014.

These facts were revealed by Minister of Telecommunications and Digital Infrastructure Harin Fernando when the no confidence motion against Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake was been debated in parliament yesterday.

The militant Budhhist monk’s three vehicles were rented at a monthly cost of Rs 45,000 each with an annual fuel costing of Rs 386,742. On the other hand journalist Thennakoon’s monthly vehicle rental cost was Rs 38,000 with an annual fuel cost of Rs 373,253 being paid by the Urban Development Authority.

It is yet to be established as to on what basis these vehicles were rented for both monk Iththakande Saddhatissa and Wijeya Group journalist Thennakoon, as they have no direct involvement with the Urban Development Ministry.

This revelation is contrary to the earlier audit report where it was stated that the militant monk Iththakande Saddhatissa was given only one vehicle.

“This reveation is only from the former Minister Weerawansa’s UDA Ministry. We don’t know how many more other monks and journalists benefited through the other ministries. These must be investigated by the Yahapalanaya government too” said an anti corruption activist.

    1) What happened TO THE kind of aggressive men in Red robes by this day ?

    2) Where had been that powerful aggressive man BBS head ?

    3) Why was that Rajaakashe was unable to control them if Rajapakshes were clean ?

    4) Why the men in red robes should always be in front runners to animate the vulnerable folks if a law and order system is there in a country ?

    Looking at the manner that these men are silent IN THE today s context one can conclude that Rajaapkshes were the ones behind BBS or any other violent movements to paint the picture that way in favours of their political surival.

    Else tell me please why was that Rajaakshe failed to control those men in Aluthgama or any other places ? There were the direct mediation of Rjaakshes irrespective of the harm being done to lanken folks – but to be selfish on their criminal agendas

      Buddhism was being militarized and destroyed by the white van dictator Gota Jarapassa who was building up a DEEP STATE as a precursor to a military coup with Gota as dictator and king of Lanka.

      Gota was BUYING Buddhist monks with cars and poojas!

      Buddhism has been distorted and destroyed in Lanka. Buddhist monks should be banned from parliament, as they are in Thailand. There should be a tax audit of all Buddhist temples and their assets, and ill gotten cars, lands, houses and elephants ceased.

      The majority of urban temples have become Palaces to store ill gotten loot – check out the Museum of Podi Hamuduruwa at Gangarama who has spread militant Buddhism for Mahinda Jarapassa and now is running behind Ranil Wickramasinghe claiming he is from an old dayaka family.. Also Uduwe Dhamma loka, the elephant thief, and his properties at Jawatta Sulaiman Terrace Roads

          Mahinda Jarapassa has gone to Japan to raise funds using Sinhala Buddhist Nationalism and racism – against Muslims and Tamils. This is supposedly on the request of the Sri Lanka community in Japan but really a small group of Jarapassa supporters.

          Mahinda Jarapassa’s so called private trips overseas to spread racism and build an overseas SInhala racist superstate – just like the LTTE tried with Tamil Diaspora should be carefully monitored.

          Raising funds form overseas Sri Lankan Buddhist temples is one fund raising strategy of the Jarapassa Sinhala Buddhist nationalist business.

          Burt – The Maha Sangha is part of the problem. They appear to be a toothless, spineless bunch of guys who have passed their prime and spend their time pretending to be ‘holy’. However, they are silent and inactive when goonish thugs in robes (like the BBS gang) run amok, despoiling what is supposed to be the religion of our pious Sinhala Buddhists hypocrites who continue to fall at their feet and offer them goodies called ‘poojas’!

          What has anything like this have to do with ‘Buddhism’?

        Percy Mahendra had applied for visa to the Japanese Embassy showing an invitation sent by Banagala Thera, and for him to attend a function at that temple. Accompanying Mahendra Rajapakse are MPs ,Wimal Weerawansa (passport fraudster) , Rohitha Abeygunawardena ,Lohan Ratwatte and Janaka Wakkumbura .
        and a monk Getamanne Gunananda

        in the letter sent by Percy Mahendra’sstooge in Japan , Jayantha Hettiarachi ( a bus conductor ), a most intriguing reason is mentioned. Percy Mahendra is arriving in Japan to provide aid that is given by the people of SL to the victims of the earthquake in Japan (the letter is herein)…

    Over to you authorities take actions. At the same time, can CT or any independent body investigate how much money paid to newly elected Director General of the Govt Information Dept. during the runup to the elections by the UNP camp? And the journalists who took no time to take editor posts in Govt. controlled newspapers but pretend as unbiased journalists then?

    The said person, named Ranga Kalansuriya used to be pretended as an “independent” writer when he contributes to CT, Daily Mirror etc.

      Read this news. The saffronistas want to form a new party:

      Bikkhu organisation wants MR to form new party

      The Sri Lanka Freedom Bhikku Organisation (SLFBO) has urged former President and Kurunegala district MP Mahinda Rajapaksa to form a separate political party and contest future elections in order to save the SLFP.

      “We cannot trust the present SLFP leadership to protect the party due to his acts and words expressed by him, SLFBO Secretary Ven.Watinapaha Somananda Thera said on the 9th.

      The January 8 mandate is no longer valid as the people have realised the truth now. If an election is held now,the former President will poll over seven million votes.

      Therefore, we request the government to hold the Local Government election as soon as possible, the Thera said, addressing a media briefing in Colombo today.

      Ven. Watinapaha Somananda Thera further said that SLFPers at village level and at state institutions have been left destitute by the group of SLFP MPs and Ministers who joined with the government.

      “They no longer care about the plight of the disgruntled and victimised SLFP supporters. There is no use of them in the government if they can not look after their own party members. The people will chase them out in a future election,” he said.

      Former President Rajapaksa handerd over the SLFP to the present President Sirisena in good faith thinking that the party and it’s members would be protected and strengthened. But the party has already been destroyed while the members are helpless today.

      President Sirisena has also forgotten the Bhikkus who have been in the forefront to protect the SLFP from 1952. He also does not listen to the advise of Bhikkus and a number of Bhikkus have been jailed in the recent past. “SLFPers do not want a leader who fulfill the demands of the UNP.

      Therefore, a leader who truly loves the party and the country should be elected by calling a Party Convention,” the Thera added.

      He said the SLFBO which met recently unanimously approved 10 proposals in order to protect the SLFP.

      Among these proposals are protecting Pancha Maha Balawega and the Security Forces, ending revenge politics, ensuring the security of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa, preventing economic destruction, frauds and malpractices, not removing Security Forces camps in the North and East, eliminating crime waves, preventing the sale of public properties, rescuing the Maha sanga from the current oppression situation and ending the university student suppression and ensuring the brighter future for them.

        Dear Native,

        Batalanada Ranil’s Anglican Faction lead Yahapalanaya is all out to destroy the Sinhala Buddhist influence in Srialanka, which was built up by the previous Regime after Nanthikadal

        When Mr Pirahaparan was doing it for Batalanada and his Anglican Faction, you weren’t so busy doing research to denigrate the Buddhists and their Monks.

        Do you want our Buddhist Monks and their Dalit followers to take it lying down from Batalanada Ranil, his gay mate Mangalan and even the new addition, Ammata Digital Harin Son, who is a Christian?. ?.

          I am sorry to tell you that you think you know who you are whereas my people know for certain who we are. Here is what one of our Veddah chief told the red shirt public racist:

          Veddahs say JVP’s ‘Our Vision’ is not their vision
          June 10, 2014, 9:59 pm

          By Norman Palihawadane

          The JVP’s policy framework titled Our Vision could not certainly be called our vision, Wimalaratna Attho, spokesman and translator for Veddha Chief Uruwarige Wannila attho said yesterday.

          Wimalaratna Attho told The Island that former leader of the JVP Somawansa Amarasinghe had visited Veddha Chief Uruwarige Wannila Attho recently and presented his party’s new manifesto titled Our Vision to him. “He [Somawansa] just presented a sheaf of papers to the Chief. Various people come to meet our Chief who grants an audience to them. The Chief does not differentiate these visitors on their political or ideological differences. Welcoming these visitors also does not mean we subscribe to their policies .”

          Wimalaratna Attho said that many people had visited the Veddha Chief and presented papers similar to the manifesto of the JVP. “These pieces of paper have no value. There would be value only if they could put the content into practice. We cannot comment on the content of the manifesto. If the JVP could implement what they promise on the paper, then we might be in a position to comment on their policies,” he said.

          JVP as a part of their campaign for the forthcoming Uva Provincial Polls, got its former leader and current Foreign Secretary Somawansa Amarasinghe to visit several places in the province during the last week of May and present its manifesto to prominent persons in the area.

          “Batalanada Ranil’s Anglican Faction lead Yahapalanaya is all out to destroy the Sinhala Buddhist influence in Srialanka, which was built up by the previous Regime after Nanthikadal”

          If true Sinhala/Buddhism should be destroyed as soon as possible freeing the Sinhalese, Buddhists, Tamils, Hindus, Chritians and Muslims to get on with their own life and unleash their full potential. They don’t have to carry this burden all their life, an unnecessary drag on their progress as we have painfully witnessed since 1948.

          “When Mr Pirahaparan was doing it for Batalanada and his Anglican Faction, you weren’t so busy doing research to denigrate the Buddhists and their Monks.”

          Let us get this cleared. VP the psychopath helped Premadasa to get rid of IPKF and won two elections for the the crook and war criminal.

          I consistently said what I am saying now and I stand by my comments as most of them are based either on research work done by scholars or media report.

            Native Vedda You are wasting your time trying to educate idiots of the calibre of K A Sumanasekera. His brain is so far up the Rajapakse clans orifice that it is beyond repair. I have studied Sri Lankan history and know that the Veddahs had more sincerity in their little finger that this moron has in his whole body. Perhaps the Rajapakses and their side-kick Weerawansa expect Nirvana after their generosity to the bikkhus with the monies stolen from the Sri Lankan coffers. They might, until the ghosts of the journalists and innocent people who opposed them and met their ends at their hands, wake up and ask them what they have gained by killing them beyond the tears of their relatives.

But the bikkus (not all) you praise themselves do not follow what they preach. you hate homosexuals, you hate wellalas and you hate angelicans but you love the BBS, the hate monkers and racists. And in Sri Lanka there were even incidents where the young novices being sexually abused in buddhist tempels, where were you then. Because you love MR and his cronies there is no need to hate all the others. This shows in what a moral deep you exist, you poor fellow. What a pathetic life you should be leading, you poor fellow.

        Native the matta,

        I have raised a reasonable question. CT revelation, which says how WW paid unlawfully to a journalist. So my question was how some of the “independent” journalists became present govt’s spokespersons over night? Is it because they were in the pay roll of the then opposition? How can someone, who pretend as “heros against malpractices” justify that?

        Instead of answering or add on to what I have raised, you Vedda has written again a long tail which has no taste at all to common man. (Except of the blind followers of your shit).

      Max you have become rather a fox… else, you would not see it this way. Even if you guys fail, any healthy ten year olds would see it right, all was done on a wrong manner during the days of Meeharaka Rajaakshes. No matter, anything came from teh opposition, he never took them serious. Today we the governing parties along with poor folks face the consequences. Butstill the man et al to be placed in the altar by local journalists is beyond my bearing. There should be much higher forces to avoid any truths being spread in this country.
      What EU failed and failing interms of Glyphosat ban, Srilankens did with the greater mediation of Mr Sirisena, immediately, he came to power – so, that is being discussed in the europe today, loudly as they can, with eucated guys becoming more undrestandable with lanken current day politics and their efforts being made to turn all ill politics of Raja to sounds ones. It has been a mammoth work since half of the lanken population is irreparably brainwhased, being tamed by Rajaakshe media men even today.

      Please see it in mirror today is no late.

      There should be sort of deals as JVPrs repeatedly accuse the regime of… to see, all the sinveistgaitons stay on a snail pace. Also allowing most abusive men to move free like the Mr Medamulana and his bone licking dog Buruwanse to have flown to see MR supporters in Japan today.

        Cannot agree with you more. I recall in these very pages readers
        wondered if there is a crooked streak in the Sinhala blood-stream, with due respect to many decent and honest Sinhala families. The 3+1 Rajapakse Brothers took the venal culture to new lows with the Prince-MP learning the trade pretty early and fast. If the good name of the innocent Sinhala people is to be saved many of these daylight robbers must be sent to long jail sentences and their stolen loot recovered under maximum publicity. The Sinhala leadership must take the initiative. I know it is not easy – because most of these rogues are now in the higher levels of this Yahapaalanaya lot. Even the Mahanayakas dare not intervene because many of these rogues have been in their good books for decades. It is Hobson’s choice for the nation.

    These saffron clad fellows should not be thought of as Buddhist Monks. Just think of this monk who is playing the role of secretary to Raawanaa! Iththakande monk. He represents Raawanaa the fictitious character who is depicted in Raamaayana as a notorious womanizer and a thug. That itself indicates the bugger has no knowledge of Buddhism. Just because this rascal is clad in yellow robes he definitely does not become a `Buddhist monk`. This yellow robed porcupine (kahakada Iththawa) is a disgrace to the entire Buddha Saasana. No wonder, such deplorable characters had been patronisd by a sackful of shit called Wimal Weerawansa!

    The Rajapaksas had backroom deals with outside Forces and the LTTE to come to power. Then with the help of a faction of the LTTE ably supported by the main players outside, India and America, the MR Govt decimated the VP group and thousands of Tamils who supported VP. Thereafter MR thought that he is set for life and his siblings could do anything. The supporters of MR in the South rejoiced and hailed MR as the saviour of the Sinhalese. Little did they know how MR manipulated and hoodwinked for most to believe that MR and Gota were the War Heroes while MR secretly allowed KP fraction of the LTTE off the hook, to take control of the North quietly. His plan backfired with the election of CV Wignasewaran to the Nothern PC. MR was mending fences when the outside allies dropped MR like a hot potato and sent reeling down.

    As for the Sinhalese in the South who rejoiced for the deaths of the Tamils in the North paid dearly by losing everything they owned with the recent floods and the entire ‘Ranawirugama’ put up to bolster the Forces was destroyed by the Salawa Amo burst. How ironic Retribution is?

      Enjoy your stay but the value of PP won’t change.

      IRONY:
      American diplomat confirms that Lankan forces will be trained at all cost and they would be involved in peace keeping missions for UN. In other words work indirectly for the US mess worldwide.

      The U.N. system for calculating member nations’ “fair share” payment toward its regular and peacekeeping budgets has increasingly shifted the burden away from the vast majority of the 193 members and onto a relative handful of high-income nations, especially the U.S. Indeed, some nations pay next to nothing.

      Each year the United States gives approximately $8 billion in mandatory payments and voluntary contributions to the United Nations and its affiliated organizations. The biggest portion of this money – about $3 billion this year 2015– goes to the U.N.’s regular and peacekeeping budgets.

      In 2015, 35 countries were charged the minimum regular budget assessment of 0.001 percent which works out to approximately$28,269 each. Twenty countries will be charged the minimum peacekeeping assessment of 0.0001 percent or approximately $8,470 apiece.

      By contrast, the U.S. is assessed 22 percent of the regular budget (approximately $622 million) and over 28 percent of the peacekeeping budget (approximately $2.402 billion).

      Put another way, the U.S. will be assessed more than 176 other member states combined for the regular budget and more than 185 countries combined for the peacekeeping budget. Who says America isn’t exceptional!

        MONEY TALKS AT THE UN – Stupid Tamils in waiting!! Stupid Journos in the waiting.

        When America does it regularly no one nation condemns because the UN salaries are high to scratch others backsides. All nations now do the thing- arm twisting of UN by being american lap dogs.- never responsible learning at UN.

        Kingdom angry at being criticised for violations of children’s rights in country where it is fighting Houthi rebels.Saudi Arabia has never liked the United Nations, but the spat with Ban Ki-moon over the child casualties of the war in Yemen this week marks a new low.

        It was extraordinary to hear the secretary-general admit publicly on Thursday that he had had his arm twisted to change tack in the wake of anger from Riyadh.

        The row began when the UN published a report about global violations of children’s rights and listed the Saudi-led military coalition’s actions in Yemen, where it is backing the restoration of the legitimate president and fighting Houthi rebels.

        It is a controversial war that reflects regional tensions, especially with Iran. And Saudi Arabia has both powerful friends and many enemies. It has also been in assertive mood under King Salman – with key policies run by his ambitious son Mohammed, the deputy crown prince.

        The UN report released last week attacked both coalition and rebel forces for a “very large number of violations” including attacks on schools and hospitals, but said the coalition was responsible for 60% of the child deaths and injuries in Yemen last year.

        So there was outrage on Monday when the UN said it had removed the coalition from its annual child rights blacklist pending a joint review by the world body and the coalition of those deaths and injuries.

        Human rights groups protested, complaining of a “shocking flip-flop”, “blatant pandering” and a “moral failure.” All agreed that the credibility of the UN had been damaged. Anonymous diplomats complained of bullying, threats and blackmail.

    This is too funny

    Everytime Yahapalanaya hits a roadblock, a total embarrassment or outright crisis, a miraculous item of Rajapakse Wrongdoing turns up to take centre-stage and get all the dogs barking !!

    Yahapalanaya has learned well from USA. When government has crisis, manufacture another somewher else to take the peoples mind off it

    And the best part is, it works every time !

    Buddhism should have no connection with politics or government.
    Thus, it flourishes in USA.

    There, the Bhikkus live in the way The Buddha preached to his disciples.

    Ammata Digital Harin Putha is a Christian… Right…

    Isn’t it a conflict of interest for a so called Senior Minister who is a Christian to make degrading comments about Buddhist Monks?.

      Monks? Who???

      Chicken eating monks
      Million rupee birthday cake monks
      Cutting another monk’s penis monks
      Walking into Muslim business and set them on fire monks
      Benz car monks
      BMW monks
      High caste monks

      If what the Minister said was right, can you bring,
      your BUDDHIST Weerawanse to Fort railway station and stone him?
      your BUDDHIST monks and strip their robes?

      There are other punters here to support this KASmalam?

      Well, after all there are more than one KASmalam in the payrolls of Rajapakse thugs.

      I am not sure whether he is Christian but there is no conflict of interest.
      He did not just say it but tabled the information to support that the monks abused the system through a fool who got into politics.

    With this revelation that Irida Lankadeepa journalist Prasanna Sanjeewa Thennakoon of the Wijeya Group had vested interest and benefited from the Rajapaksa regime, what action will the Wijaya Group management take against this journalist? No wonder “Lankadeepa” was “Running with the hare and hunting with the hounds”

      “Militant Buddhist monks! Are they armed?”

      Of course they are armed and dangerous. Armed with hatred, lies, gtreed and motivated by bigotry and racism, camouflaged in saffron ……… only way these thugs can be disarmed is to disrobe them and liberate them from Sinhala/Buddhism.

    Colvin R De Silva demonstrated his party’s stand of SAMA SAMAJA & through his 1972 constitution.

    Ardent Buddhist J R Jeyawardne released a postal stamp in 1977 printed DHAMICA SAMAJAYA” and demonstrated it with his July 1983 programme.
    V Prabaharan told in a news interview that if JR is a real or practising Buddhist no need for him & the Tamil youths to take up arms.He demonstrated with 26 years of war.
    Rohana Vijeyaweera lead the Sinhalese youth to establish a proletarian government through a Cheguara type armed revolution against the state. Ended up in the dock saying a parting shot ” victory for injustice today but victory for justice will be every day orsomething like that.

    Rajapakse using religion and language, and ill gotten wealth and with the support of many countries has demonstrated the supremacy of the majority of the majority without any conscience through power. What a smart patriot MR is who put mother Lanka in an enviable position in the global arena through his deeds particularly from 2010 to 2015 !!!

    MR wants to come back to power using the support of the sections of armed forces and the clergymen.

    One thing I must admit, the past regime and the black sheep of the JVP and the (black Muslim goat -co partner of the Black sheep) took almost 90 percent of the Sinhalese for a joy ride .

    If a Past regime like that with black sheep and black goats could have a large population for a ride with a bunch of humbug , what a bunch of goats and sheep we have in this country .

    Even the past elections people were willing to ignore all the facts and bet on the same Horse , what a horse laugh !

    Sri Lanka after the 70’s had only two years of best governance and the Country thrived , The LTTE was dismantle with super wisdom of Ranil ,only to be betrayed as usual by another Sinhalese ,(like always since colonial times) all that was remaining was to artfully annihilate the scrap .

    The best coordinating Politicians that Sri Lanka ever saw were Chandirka and Ranil , had they remained without becoming sheep to the wolves , LTTE could have been totally wiped out with international support without dirtying our hands , what to do, first a Muslim -Sinhala Riot was created in mawanala , which I must salute chandrika for taking immediate action to bring it under control , when that did not work, while Ranil was out of the country , The Poor red riding hood was made to believe the wood cutter out of the scene is not the wood cutter who would save her and grand mother Lanka , but is the Wolf, what a smart and crafty wolf , and the wolves lived happily ever after , still living and the horse is still laughing
    ————-
    Now another two have come together , They are both good men ,Ranil as well as Maithree . this is Sri Lanka’s last ever chance , damn well do your job with a whip in the hand, or get wiped out on the other hand., ( Sri Lanka seem to have had to-many last chances)

    BBS, Mr.Weerawansha, Ravana Balaya, etc , keep up the good work. YES, Muslim extremism is already here in Sri Lanka causing a havoc. ON Vesak day some Muslim youths destroyed the ‘Vesak Kuduwas’ and torn up the Buddhist flags in Mahiyananaya.

    These patriotic Buddhist organizations are worth every Rupee and they were able to keep the terrorist Muslims away.

    Although, as always some Muslims are ungrateful to their host, organizations such as BBS, Ravana Balaya, etc are the true guardians in disguise of Muslims.

    The yahapalana government is systematically dismantling Modawanse. Whenever Modawanse does a monkey show few of his corruption cases were released. There must be tons of his files left in his ministry to be exposed.

    Modawanse used SLFP to gain votes, still he needs to use Mahinda as ‘kang kang booru game’ to scavenge his votes. Once when he loses his ‘kang kang booruwa’ these corruptions and bad publicity will ground him for good.

    The good result of all such evil manipulations where monks were used to rev up support for the MR Mafia was that it all misfired. All muslim votes went to MS and the Mafia brothers were sent home with their tails between the legs.
