‘Rajapaksaism’ Is Not Dead Yet

By Vishwamithra1984

It is not once nor twice but times without number that the same ideas make their appearance in the world.”~ Aristotle

Those who lose at elections don’t seem to realize that they, elections, have consequences. Dulles Alahapperuma, Dinesh Gunawardena, Rohitha Abeygunawardene, Kumara Welgama. Bandula Gunawardana and Mahinda Rajapaksa and some like-minded parliamentarians and elected members to other provincial bodies are still trying come to terms with the humiliating beating that they received on January 8, 2015. It is quite tough for those who had wielded almost unlimited power for a decade or so to first accept the loss and then reconcile themselves to the grueling reality of leading an ordinary man’s life. The so-called struggle that these losers have launched in Parliament to be recognized as a separate entity with a distinct identity as against the regular Opposition in Parliament, suffered an embarrassing defeat at the hands of the Speaker of the House the other day.

MahindaThe latest cry from their half-baked ideologue, Dulles Alahapperuma that they would carry on their struggle to be heard in Parliament is a gross insult to that eminent assembly. Once crowded by national leaders of the caliber of D S Senanayake, Dudley Senanayake, J R Jayewardene, S W R D Bandaranaike, N M Perera, Colvin R de Silva, Peter Kueneman and Bernard Soysa and the Ponnambalam brothers, (Ramanathan and Arunachalam) G G Ponnambalam, Sir D B Jayatilleke and Arunachalam Mahadeva during the Legislative and State Council days, became something akin to an asylum run by its inmates during the Rajapaksa regime. It was during this blasphemous period of the Rajapaksa regime that Parliament became to be dominated by these losers who are now clamoring for their place in the sun, so to speak. It is beyond the pale.

The Legislature is a place to which the peoples’ representatives are elected and are charged with the onerous task of generating the very process of law-making. As per the provisions in our 1978 Constitution: ‘4 (a). The legislative power of the People shall be exercised by Parliament, consisting of elected representatives of the People and by the People at a Referendum. 75. Parliament shall have power to make laws, including laws having retrospective effect and repealing or amending the Constitution. 76. Parliament shall not abdicate or in any manner alienate its legislative power, and shall not set up any authority with any legislative power subject to the provisions of Article 76(2)(3.)

To what extent these provisions are observed and adhered to is much a subject of debate as it has been recorded in the Hansard and other archival papers. In his farewell address to parliament, the Legislature was called the ‘Temple of Democracy’ by J R Jayewardene, one of the its devoted students. When the custodians adopt to willfully desecrate the temple, when the caretakers of the people’s vision and aspirations embrace primordial fears and base instincts and project an image of protectors of the majority’s values and traditions, then we are naturally drawn into a suggestion that something is certainly rotten in Sri Lanka. These political hoodlums who choose to hide behind lofty slogans and ear-shattering shouting- one of whom is supposed to be a descendant from Boralugoda- it is incumbent upon every decent-minded citizen, leave alone journalists, of this great country of ours to name and shame them.

Those who lost their power and glorious seats in the state machinery are making a intrepid effort to redeem their powers; their exasperated hurry to get back what they justifiably lost at the last Presidential Elections and their haughty approach to poor man’s problems are all but a part and parcel of a macabre mosaic of the current Sri Lankan electorate.

The Government and its constituent parties, the United National Party (UNP) and Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP), have no alternative but come to terms with this tangled assortment of political circumstances. This is where the current leaders of the Government, Prime Minister as well as President, have failed most miserably. Conveying a tangible message, spelling out the broad vision and program of action, specific policy positions must all be intimated to the public in a very understandable and timely fashion. This aspect of governance – lending wide publicity to its principles and policies – and whether Yahapalanaya or not, cannot be overstated. It is valid, legitimate and totally within reason and reasonability to tell the people the benefits of those principles and policies that the Government is undertaking for and on behalf of the people.

However, the superficial propaganda yet commanding campaigns unleashed by the Rajapaksas and their cohorts during their regime made it a total ridicule of judicious spending of state resources. Not only did they dip into the national coffers to finance their self-aggrandizing projects- as is evident in the face of numerous investigations being carried out now- they have apparently inflated many a government venture as part of cost-overruns and pocketed such overruns to finance their orgies of primeval desires and crude ambitions. Almost all governments since independence are guilty of wasteful spending of state resources and abuse of political power. But the period between 2005 and 2005 stands out as a period in which state resources were vandalized and political power was used and abused to buttress the ego of one single family and its perpetuation in power.

And it is to perpetuate this same comic family drama, to continue with the same tragic theatrics on the political stage that the so-called ‘alternative Opposition’ members have launched a program of action in Parliament. Given the country’s current liberal media and the freedom-friendly environment, it won’t be before long that this group of loser-MPs would take their fight to the street. They simply cannot wait in the shadows. They are not used to be outside the limelight of political discourse. So it is in their selfish and parochial interest to gain some foothold in the nation’s trek towards more meaningful freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom of worship etc.

I remember writing in one of my recent columns that beating a dead horse might be an overkill of a yesterday-issue. Yet reminding the readers of what looms in the shadows and the substantive debate it creates among political junkies such as myself, would lead me to cast the dye where it belongs. The messaging of the ‘alternative Opposition’ is not only dangerous in the context of their past campaigns of character assassination and political innuendos, it could be extremely unwise to disregard their real power which is principally drawn from the hearts and minds of the Sinhalese Buddhist majority in the country.

Inan excerpt from the book, “Odyssey of a Heart, Home of a Soul”, Angelica Hopes defines financial parasites as follows: ‘greedy people who live luxurious life at the expense and hard work of others’. It suits every ounce and layer of these socio-financial parasites garbed in expensive silk national dresses and gold chains who roamed the corridors of the House of Parliament during the last regime. The Cabinet positions they held gave them weight to their validity and false veneer of ‘purity’ of purpose to their dastardly motives. But inside these fragrant exterior, the stench that erupts from within makes one close one’s nostrils. These rotten swindlers must be stopped, period.

Reminding the reader of the existence of such parasites and their probable re-emergence in the future is no great crime, I suppose. Against such a foreboding backdrop, beating a dead horse is not redundant. Riots in prisons, terrifying white vans, disappearance of journalists, both Sinhalese and non-Sinhalese, joy helicopter rides for the first family’s friends and paramours, midnight-car-races in the vicinity of the Temple of the Tooth and all other extravagant and obscene display of arrogance should remain buried in the past. They should not be given the slightest chance of comeback. The volatility of the ground situation in far out hamlets, their ever-ready propensity for religion-laden hearts and minds might still offer ample desire for the ‘Family’ and its cohorts to stage a very real comeback.

Bruce Bueno de Mesquita, a political scientist, professor at New York University, and senior fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution has written about political leaders in the following fashion: “Dictators, unlike Democrats, depend on a small coterie to sustain their power. These backers, generally drawn from the military, the senior civil service, and family or clan members, have a synergistic relationship with their dictator. The dictator delivers opportunities for them to become rich, and they protect him from being overthrown”. What Sri Lanka experienced in the 2005-2005 period was not a textbook version of a dictatorship. But the hallmarks of an emerging kind were very much present and we must be glad that the signs were deciphered early and timely remedy applied. But we will be making a colossal blunder if the current clan of Rajapaksa sympathizers is not contained within the accepted boundaries of decency and law.

    Mahinda is my darling and he will not die soon.

    I have dispatched the revised Draft Mahinda Chinthanaye I drafted to him.

    Core suggestion is to take revenge against those who treated him and his family badly since he lost the elections.

    He will not die until he avenge his enemies.

      Pinbath Uras of the villages – those are the hamuduruwos should make efforts to teach poor men and women the realities of the day. Lanken culture is like most would not want to know the facts. They just get abused to anythign come on the air – who put them to air ? Press men run by Rajaakshes.

      Believe or not where the kind of politicians are found, be it in Egypt, Lybia, North Korea, the style of the press has been more or less the same.

      Those press units worked for Raja are still there inthe country. Recently, I happened to watch a program on the TV. There was one yapa, who is said to be senior Journalist – added thoughts that the society is fully rotten. Asked why not the rulers go into that depth of investigations, even before the Rajaakshe. Then as many would see it, if we go for it too, that would not happen properly, since holding investigations for anyone s wrong doings shold be done by previous regime. The onese against Premadasa should have been done by CBK term.

      Ravaya man wrote that book Chaura Rajina, but very same man stayed as if eaten punnaku or kirmati at the time, MR destroyed almost everything why ? why was that silent for one and go radical for ther other ? Ravaya man has to finally add his explanations. This is the nature of lanken journalism… to this date

        Primal,
        Do you call people from the rural areas pin bath bras? You are demented. Whether you like it or not there will be people who still revere MR. It may not go down well with the light headed Colombians like you but that is the truth.

          But dont you think that the dates are numbered now for the beloved clown ?

          He goes to FCID and other investigative bodies more than he goes to his toiletting these days. Had his adminsitration been average as you the intoxicated are compelled to believe forever, why the huge discrepancies become multiple in numbers day to another. Is that all politicaly motivated attacks ?
          Why then JVPers go against him and his deeds ? They were the ones who brought him into power in 2005?

          Why not you the ilk question yourself – there cant be no smoke without fire right?

          Each time visiting the country I thought no other leader looted people s assets to the manner MR did – Nov 2014 I happened to be their MY3 s candidacy was announced, but whenever I walked within CMBO rains of placards and posters being sowed by Raja et al abusing poor mans funds – was what I hated most. How many of the country – even today earn less than 5 dollars a day – is it not over 50% of the working population.
          Are the conditions for the people that better, why to go and lick the balls of Middle east -idiots for 200 dollar/month. All these were not focused by the idiotic Rajapakshe – now farting being cornered, he may have all chances to rethink before being lined up to enter jail sessions.
          Centainity is that very same people would nto agree with the kind of bunch again for sure. I love the social media backing- 1mio vote eligible lankens together with civli society group to have broken the neck of Rajaapkshes on the 8th January 2015.

      Nirmala N In some ways you are right as from the look of things Mahinda Rajapakse is destined to die in prison for the innumerable crimes he has committed against the innocent people of Sri Lanka. It is probable you have had benefitted from his crimes as undoubtedly many did but it is selfish not to think of the innocents who have been subjected to abductions, disappearances, murder, assaults, extortions and incarcerations besides the fortune he has frittered away that belong to our coffers.

    What suffered a blow at the hands of the speaker is not merely the raw ambition and pride of the so called ‘losers’ but a deadly blow to democracy itself. What this writer fails to understand is the function of a legislature in a democracy includes the function of ‘representation’. The right to be represented in parliament is not a right relegated to the victor/majority. Its a right that applies to losers and minorities. What the speaker did recently was to quell the voices of 4.8million voters through not recognising the representative they elected to Parliament. Removing ways for democratic expression of minorities in the 1970’s and 1980’s led to two JVP uprisings and an LTTE war. Lets hope these reason blows to democracy dont endup on the same bloody path.

      Those 50 odd so call alternative group do not represent the whole bunch of4.8m votes. This lot made a mockery of peoples representation while in power. They abused power which was bestowed on them to the hilt.
      This struggle was separate recognition is all the willingness to enjoy the lime-light of the parliament.
      They never were serving the people other than themself.
      It would be best for the people, To KEEP them gaged untill the day of resurrection.

        Yousuf, crook or murderer, savage or heathen, democratic represntation relies on representatives elected by the people having the right to represent them. Its not the speakers role or perogative to deny those people (village baiyas) the right to be represented in parliament. Whether the representatives are crooks or not is not the point. They were elected by the people’s preference. They must begiven an opportunity to be heard

    Mate, your list of the pioneers in our Parliament is very impressive if you look at the names.

    But they did jack shit to lift the living standards of the great inhabitant population in the country.

    I didn’t make this up.

    It is what you saviour Yahapalana PM who said , in his address to the Colombo Elite the other day.

    And he is a direct relative of those whom you mentioned.

    Yahapalana PM says he did an Economic survey on his own . And guess what he found.

    Until 1977 people in the rural sector didn’t have even one light globe.And I can attest to that.

    And I can tell you who provided light globes to 98 % of the inhabitant population.

    But it is definitely not our Yahapalana PM or his ancestors or relatives..

    But Yahapalana PM has been forthright this time.

    He says he is going to erase the South Asian mentality of our inhabitants.

    And he is going to make us look like East Asians . ??????

    Colombo Elite wouldn’t be impressed though..

    East Asians don’t listen to Englesi ass to start with.

    But the Yahapalana PM is going to make them richer too, with the help of the World Bank.

    And the YPM has even quantified it, with a figure of double the GDP in 2025..

    Can anyone point out to any country in the World, where the WB has pumped in money to double their GDP in 10 years?..

    Thank God that Chinese built some decent roads for us..

    At least Yhapalana PM’s new East Asian looking Elite can drive their new Double GDP wheels without hitting pot holes.

      KA Sumanasekera Still dreaming that the Rajapakses will return to power and hold your hand to wipe their bottoms. The will return all right but straight to prison when the investigations are completed. I notice your “Thank God that Chinese built some decent roads for us.” Yes they did but at what cost. A significant proportion was the commissions and kickbacks they had to pay to the Rajapakses and their sycophants as told by the Chinese themselves, and by your untiring defense of these sociopaths, you are probably one of those sycophants.

    It is all because none of these men would believe that Rajapakshe looted their funds. And Rajapakshe media men painted the stories so that reverse could take that long. Else, anyone with a bird brain would go against if a leader is so abusive as Rajaakshes have been.

    And may also be possible, this folks is filled with fools – genetic disorder- it is high time to investigate the sinahalya genome. shame on us sinhalaya. TOday Rajaakshe drag the kind of poor menand women fooling them further.. can you imagine.. ? This man is born culprit – cardiologists shold better check MR hasa a heart at all.

    a) If rulers would prove MR has deliberately abused the funds that are allocated to alleviate the poverty of this nation ?

    b) If Rajaakshe son – was directly invovled in murder case – in which sportler was killed for no reason but to tame the innocient people allowing their sons to lead the crime ?

      No Sama,
      it is the symbol for lanken average thinkers. Be them literate or not, they just focus day today issues rather than focusing on politics. What come over the air is being naively taken by any of them.

      Do they have any other choice ? No, it is /was media men earlier/also today make the cancer even more metastasized. Rumours are being placed on the top by people. If they are paassed in a langauge using sinhala coloquial terms using the buruwanse the street mans vocabulary or former front man Mervin S vocabulary, it was easy to outreach majority poor people across the country.
      I feel the lanken politicians of MR kind are like frogs waiting gawky for their preys.. Poor people across the country are the prey for them. True or not MR has no shame to abuse anyone rumours to turn the mind sets of the godayas.

    >pulls out all the stops, breaks laws to try and win election

    >people reject him wholesale

    >party loses parliamentary election mere months later despite more nationalist logic and rabble-rousing

    >basically insignificant in parliament, does nothing useful, whines like children about being recognized as a separate party instead of contributing to the country

    >still believes he can win again

    I’d make a joke about Rajapakse supporters being unable to learn from their mistakes/history, but it’s not like there’s examples of that, right? What’s that you say? The same crowd 50 years ago started a war by demeaning the Tamils? The same people are now behind Gnaane and the Sathva Le brigade, trying their best to start another pointless conflict instead of dealing with grievances like adults?

    Oh well…

    The picture that accompanied your thoughts says it all.

    I did not name our society the “wakutuweyang” society for nothing. The reader must not dismiss the message in this picture as that of an uneducated simpleton prostrating towards his hero. If you see our society from top to bottom we all are not too much different to this man worshipping the picture of a well known rogue and mass murderer. From day one we grew up being brain bashed into submissiveness. Submission to authority of all kinds, even onerous kinds like worshipping thugs, just because they dress themselves in saffron robes. When the status quo of an entire nation is thus, do not be surprised if Vishwamithra1984’s greatest fear, that of a resurrected MR Mafia coming back to power, is realized.

      Did you know the latest WB Reports indicate that 40 percent of SL population earn an average of just 250/= Rupees a day. Comparatively, can anyone guesstimate what must be average daily income of the Rajapaakse family combined? This is what this man prostrating himself before a picture of his ‘haamu’ will never realize, as he does not have the intelligence to think and assess the truth for himself independently, but simply believe the bogus praises and hosannas made by misleading politicians on election platform.

      Common man is a less intelligent person. That why they ende up “common” poor idiots. They don’t want to worship idols. They been deprived of essential items in life to satisfy the need of the powerf ul and hungry politicians who suck thier blood. Common man worship these idols when they are rewarded with a small reward.

    I don’t think any of the Rajapakses had even a bird fluttering in their brains about how to run a democracy in the 21st century.

    “Dictators, unlike Democrats, depend on a small coterie to sustain their power. These backers, generally drawn from the military, the senior civil service, and family or clan members, have a synergistic relationship with their dictator. The dictator delivers opportunities for them to become rich, and they protect him from being overthrown.”

    That’s an “educated” man’s way of saying it.

    An ordinary man on the street would say what Mahinda ran was an Al-Capone-ic Mafia outfit with the sole purpose to enriching themselves by running rackets. No different to good old Al running the 20’s Chicago.

    If one watches the first “Godfather,” one would get the picture. Johnny ran his ethanol rackets in Kurunagala, Rohitha Abeygunawardene ran his gold-snatching rackets in Kalutara, Mahindananda Aluthgamage ran his rackets in Kandy, ……. Mahinda doled out patronage for allegiance. Gota was the enforcer. Basil was the bagman. Namal was the not so bright eldest son …….. And it was a well oiled well running set-up.

    Good old Prabakaran was the rival Godfather. The sunny isle was too small for the both of them; one had to bite the dust. The story goes on …………

    Alas for Mahinda, he didn’t have Lucky Luciano’s smarts!

    Well, the Government should appropriately accelerate their quest to seek justice on behalf of the people. So many things, sooo many things, need to be sorted. The moneys they played, the elephants they killed, the body parts they snatched, the journalist they killed, the politicians they killed, night race, Air Lanka, Mihin Air, Mr 15%, purchase of outdated and faulty military hardware, treatment of Sarath Fonseka, treatment of Shiranee Bandaranayake, land grab, intimidation to take over assets, flight attendant gate, abortion doctors, free plane and chopper rides, oh my god, more and more….

    Accelerate the process, Mr. President and Mr. Prime Minister.

From whom ? so called biased journos of the country.
      I believe, lanken journalism should learn a lot to educate majority folks of the nation be them sinhala, tamils, muslims or others they all lack facts of the country s politics. So long this culture moves forward, it will be easy ANOTHER Mahindas to abuse them easily.

    Truth is that ‘Rajpaksaism’ is now metamorphosing into ‘Pakarajism’.

    This entails Big Bro Hasbeen becoming ‘Godfather of the Nation’.

    Little Bro Wannabe will now become the New King. The NEW party driver.

    MR has done something to our country. He has not destroyed our country. He took firm decisions at critical moments. That is why we have a democratic country. That is why we saved billions of dollars from the Defense budget. That is why we can travel from Matara to Kankasnathurai without any fear. That is why Children in the North and East are going to Schools. That is why Yahapalanaya buruwas can go and distribute the Military land to Tamils in the North. That is why so much of tourists coming to Sri Lanka that created thousands of jobs in the hotel and leisure industry. I can write many more.

    My dear writer,
    Please tell me the any productive thing done by the Yahaplanaya Government for the last one year including the following:
    1. Have they started a new factory- Give me examples.
    2. Have they brought any foreign aid-tell me the amount.
    3. Have they created any jobs-give me the numbers
    4. Have they created an environment to sell local produce, like Paddy, Tea, Rubber, Coconut and Gems-compare the prices then and now. What are the strategies adopted to give a good prices to Farmers. Give me examples.
    5. Have they created a democratic environment- Then why the PM is threatening to local TV channels?
    6. Have they commenced or build a new road.
    7. Have they stopped corruption-Then the why the Minister responsible for Paddy Marketing Board selling government paddy at a half of the cost to his catchers.
    8. Have they stopped illegal land grabbing (3000 acres) in the Wilpaththu National Park
    9. What are the advantages of signing an economic agreements with India on Sri Lankan side- That is to pave the way millions of unemployed Indians to come to Sri Lanka. We have thousands of unemployed graduates. We need to find employment opportunities for them before we give jobs to Indians.
    My dear writer, I can give many examples. Yahapalanya government is only “Borutalk” and “no work”. Show the results with practical examples. You have used some academic jargon and quotations.
    What is the main problem with the “Yahapalanaya” is that they do not have capital. They are going after the western countries with the begging bowl and ass licking the western leaders. But those countries do not have money to spend on Sri Lanka.
    My dear writer-we are not Buruwas. We can understand what is going on. The theme of the Yahapalanaya is “No work and Boru talk”.

      “MR has done something to our country.”

      Thanks.

      He lost the elections and returned the country to the people. The people are eternally grateful to him for his sacrifice on 8 January 2015.

      The people will be grateful if he returned what he and his clan robbed from them (including gold and cash taken from Vanni).

      Thanks again.

        MR has done something to our country.

        Yes, that is the reason why he keeps visiting FCID day to another.
        Latter is being understood by many

      Sunil Dahanayake ,

      Hmmmm…… quite a list , very impressive to your standard ! now let’s analyse your version of MR’s success.

      “MR has done something to our country. He has not destroyed our country. He took firm decisions at critical moments. That is why we have a democratic country. That is why we saved billions of dollars from the Defense budget”

      Sure , he has done some thing to the country ,in-fact he had institutionalised crime , bribery, murder , nepotism , mayhem etc in to srilankan governance system , do you want me to remind few of them for you ? who was Julampitiye Amaraya ? wasn’t he involved in multiple murders and rape cases? who was protecting him ? who bribed Prabakaran for his own political gains ? who killed Ekinalgoda , Lasantha , Raviraj , Joseph P , Two university students , Thajudeen et al ? name the people who were holding all the top most jobs in government sector ?
      have you heard a person called Nishantha Wicramasingha ? what qualifications did he have to be the top guy of Sri Lanakan air line ? has he even passed his basic SSC(O/L) ? then what about Jaliya Wickramasuriya and Udayanga Weerathunga ? what qualifications did they have to be the ambassadors of The USA and Russia ?

      hadn’t he and his henchmen taken Srilanka for a joy ride ? weren’t all of his ministers involved in committing multiple crimes ? hadn’t MR admitted that he kept all the files away from law & order agencies ?

      your version of saving the country is good for illustrate Mahinda worshippers , not for average Srilankan . what made you to say that Prabakaran would still alive and terrorise the nation hadn’t MR intervened ? these are all myths that Rajano created ;thereby, no body dared to challenge his version . there is no point in repeating the same old boring story of defeating terrorism . haven’t we heard millions of times from previous government ministers from dawn to dusk about the very same thing over and over again ? as a matter of fact , they thought it’s a life time licence to stay in power , fortunately majority of srilankan people thought otherwise .

      talking of current regime , sadly almost all the rogues roaming freely even without power , MY3 and Ranil are saving Mafia king and his family , but compare to the previous lawless banana republic , today we have some what acceptable governance style . as for your childish other arguments , there is no point in explaining any thing to you , just go and listen to Buruwansa and Gommanpila , they have got ready made answers to your burning questions .

        correction ,

        ” good for illustrate Mahinda worshippers ,”

        should be read as

        ” good for illiterate Mahinda worshippers ,”

          Sirilal, you still licking boots of wahapalayana? Please do not turn back because people need laughing stocks in order to be in good health. You just do that along with such brats like Native Vedda. Go ahead. We’re watching. And laughing.

            We still remember who it was licking MR’s whatever, reciting ‘Pal Kavi’ praising him to high heavens on his political stage. You still are not lost for words when it comes to licking some more just for old times sake. But still, go right ahead, be my guest, but don’t expect him to rise from the ashes. At least not in this Aathmaya.

            Madhavi ,

            So , i’m providing some sort of entertainment for you . right ? great , please don’t stop , keep on laughing till the pot get boiled , your Mafia king and his gang of thieves must be caged for life , we the civilised people of this country demand from this so called “good governance ” regime to keep the promise . we want the whole Mafia family behind bars , nothing less would be acceptable to us. If MY3 and RW try to save Maha Rajano’s a.. , we would vote them out .

            “Please do not turn back because people need laughing stocks in order to be in good health.”

            You have plenty of them in this forum if that is what you need to keep you in good heath, for example, we can start with you, then Ballah, HLD M, sach, somass, Nuisance, ……. ela kolla,

            You don’t need us.

            “And laughing”

            If you want to stop laughing, please stop looking in the mirror.

            Madhavi, those the like you – who would lick the balls of Rajapakshe et al – would go on supporting idiocies. But there areenough that would support to be against Raja.
            We will succeed it in the future.Jaya niyathai.
            Today, almost every one is being treated equal: We dont hear any monitoring ministers slapping the Highcommissioners or some others of the MR kind attack visiting foreign high officials verbally. Today, dececeny and the dignity ofthe life is given a place. Young unp mps work very hard – as everyone considers it.

      If what we read is true ????? the present government is desperate for funds because the last lot didnt leave much in the kitty ..

      Licking ass as you so politely put it :) to the West for support is good sensible international politics.

      Do not put all your eggs in the Chinese basket. Better to have friends everywhere.

      It took 10 years to cock up the country and you think that RW and MY3 can sort it out in year???????

      Lets all get real and give the Government a chance……

      Opposition needs to be constructive not destructive that is how democracy works. Too many large egos operating here. They are all busy trying to score points against the government rather than thinking of the needs of the people.

      The picture above says it all. Its a tragedy for Sri Lanka if this nonsense carries on.

      Unless people are educated this foolishnesswill continue.

      God bless Sri Lanka…he really needs to :)

      You should be either blind or deaf

      a) Today we donthave white van culture
      b) All the high profile abusers are being called for intestigations
      c) Police has been given their indepencey to work by their own
      d) Not even germans are able to build a factory of any kind within 12 months
      e) No women and children are beingharrased as had been under MR thugs
      f) Today journos are not under threat as had been the case for them earlier
      h) Entire world has accepted that the country is now marching towards pro human rights rather than anti – earlier alon in the post war sessions, disappearence were on the rise. No investigations on any crimes since they work on the agendas of the Rajapakshe thugs.
      i) As had been the case with MR, now no more gonibillas or electric chair is waiting to execute srilankens heads…. remember or you were born yestreday ?

      j) How many factories MR regime built during his second term – not a single one factory ?
      k) Now GSP plus is to be gotten back.
      l) Entire world is now supporting the country than go against

      Above all, now there is more democracy, even president is criticised by varied parties as had nt been the case under the dictatorship of MR thugs.
      I can add more to this, but you guys with brains filled with Kaka would go on lickingthe balls of Raja and his thugs since the kind would see it right not having proper knolwedge about anything.

    The so called ‘vishvamithra’ is another yahapalana boot licker who does not need a reason to bash MR. And, its an example to the ground reality: Though defeated artificially, MR is still in the hearts and minds of people in SL who has a conscience.
