Residents From Low-Income Housing Projects Threatened To Vote For MR

In a desperate attempt to secure the declining voter base, residents of low-income housing projects in Colombo have been threatened into voting for President Rajapaksa.

Gotabaya Rajapaksa -Secretary to Ministry of Defence and Urban Development

Colombo Telegraph learns that military personnel have been visiting the homes in low income housing projects for the past few weeks, and threatening the residents into voting for Mahinda Rajapaksa. The residents had been told the ‘authorities’ possess the names, personal details and polling card numbers of all the residents and that their votes will be monitored. They had been informed further that if the ‘authorities’ find out that their votes have been cast to any other candidate except MR, they would have to suffer grave repercussions.

It has also been revealed that residents of Tamil ethnicity have been particularly targeted through this intimidation campaign and told that they would be removed from Colombo if they do not support MR.

This intimidation campaign resonates with a remark made by the eldest Rajapaksa ‘prince’ during a rally where he claimed that those from low-income housing projects who vote for any other candidate except his father, should be thrown out of their homes.

“I told the President that these people should be relocated somewhere else if they don’t vote for us . . . they can’t be voting for someone else when it is we who have built their houses. . .” he says during a rally, conveniently forgetting that it is not the personal funds of the Rajapaksas that funded the construction but tax payers’ money.

    Namal baby is not adequately educated abou the least of basic life -how he has to get on with people. This is not the first time he may have intimidated the poor of poor in this country. ANyway, my wish is whether people in general would make a good decision on the 08th Jan.

      These SOBs will rot in hell. They will pay for what they have done/doing, very soon.

      Everyone should pray for divine intervention to get rid of these SOBs without bloodshed.

        Point of View

        “These SOBs will rot in hell. They will pay for what they have done/doing, very soon.”

        Many would not agree with you that there is hell. If at all there is one it should be in Sri Lanka, inside Gota’s head.

        CT should not publish the above photograph of Gota for it not only scares the children but adults as well. His most gruesome looking photograph ever to be published in the media.

        He looks like “Prince of Darkness”.

        While we are on Prince of Darkness please read the review on a film with the same name:

        PRINCE OF DARKNESS (1987)

        MOVIE INFO

        Proving that you can never guess what you’ll find when you clean out the basement, a man of the cloth discovers that ultimate evil has made a hiding place in his cellar in this tale of terror. Father Loomis (Donald Pleasance) is a priest who discovers a strange object in a church basement — a canister filled with a swirling and volatile green substance. With the help of Professor Birack (Victor Wong), Loomis discovers the startling truth about his find — it seems that Satan, who is actually an alien life form, had a son, and the essence of the devil’s spawn is trapped inside the canister. The evil spirit has been guarded by a group calling themselves “The Brotherhood of Sleep,” but the spirit has the ability to free itself whenever it decides the time is right…and it seems that time is just around the corner. Prince of Darkness was directed by horror master John Carpenter; he also wrote the screenplay under the pseudonym Martin Quatermass.

        Rating:R (adult situations/language, violence)

        Sinhala/Buddhists like this “Prince of Darkness” because he is one of them and epitome of ultimate evil.

          Are you suggesting all sinhala buddhists are the epitome of evil, sir? Or just saying GR is the epitome of evil and all sinhala buddhists like him? Either way you are trying to make all sinhala buddhists look evil, if which is the case is unfair. Sorry if any sinhala buddhist had hurt you or your loved ones, but that doesn’t make it fair to brand us all as epitome of evil.

            proud srilankan

            “Are you suggesting all sinhala buddhists are the epitome of evil, sir?”

            I am saying all Sinhala/Buddhists are the epitome of evil.

            Have I made it clear? Please drop me a line if you need further clarification.

            “Or just saying GR is the epitome of evil and all sinhala buddhists like him?”

            I have said this many times before and will say it again.

            GR is the epitome of evil and all sinhala/buddhists do like him.

            “Sorry if any sinhala buddhist had hurt you or your loved ones, but that doesn’t make it fair to brand us all as epitome of evil.”

            All Sinhala/Buddhists without exception have had a record of hurting others and continue to hurt Tamils, Sinhalese, Muslims, Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, my people, ….

            There are so many ways in which one could hurt people overtly or covertly, knowingly or unknowingly, consciously or unconsciously. If you are Sinhala/Buddhist I am sure you would have hurt someone in the past or intent to hurt someone in the future.

            I am sure you in your various capacity would have supported the war criminals, committed by various state and non state actors, then you can confidently claimed to be a proud Sinhala/Buddhists.

          “That bugger is no ‘Vedda’. Bastard a kallathoni from the East.”

          Where did you get the information from? Did you read it in Ancient Jaffna (1929)?

          Then you must be a typical raging racist Sinhala/Buddhists bigot and that is what you are.

          And I have said that many times over.

      Namal may not be good at reading books. But don’t forget he has other assets – may be having a hyperactive penis – or may be fond of hyperactive penises.

    It is a shame that Namal is a Thomian. Can someone throw some light on his academic performance at St. Thomas?

      A Thomian teacher whom I trust told me that he had been instructed by school authorities to inflate the Rajapakse children’s marks. So any record of his academic performance is not informative. We may also infer the inaccuracy of his records from his special exam facilities at Law College. Hopefully the new government will withdraw his Law College certificate.

    When absolute power corrupts absolutely, the ruler reaches the zenith of his madness. This is the way of the Gods to destroy evil. Louis XIV couldn’t help saying “I am the State”. In his eyes he and the state were one. To GR and Namal, Sri Lanka is but their fiefdom and all its residents their serfs. Act by their diktat or lose both house and land.

    Come January 8th and absolutism will be kept in its place the way Cromwell did it in UK in 1642 and the French in 1789. 2015 will be Sri Lanka’s year of reckoning.

    To win by hook or by crook. To win by thuggery, intimidation, and bribery. The hallmarks of the Rajapaksa campaign. They have nothing else to run on. If they had an excellent record they would not have to stoop to such ugly tactics. Looks like Namal is doing his father’s dirty work for him, and afraid that their ill gotten gains will stop coming in. They deserve to be voted out of office, and the people of Sri Lanka should take this opportunity to get rid of the vermin.

    Looks like Gen Sarath Fonseka is being black mailed to switch. His pension and savings were frozen.

    He could join UNP on the national list. Perhaps replace the position left vacant by Tissa A.

    He is crucial to the opposition victory.

    I think it is advisable for Indian fighter jets to circle over srilanka on 8th – 10th of January. They have supported MR during the rumour about Sarath Fonseka- why not now.

    Military personnel who engage in such political activities will have to be dismissed from the forces. They will have to be discharged with dishonor.

    We need discipline not thuggery and this must begin with presidential candidates. The incumbent is beyond redemption. The common opposition candidate must also apologies for having interfered with the law in order to prevent his son from being prosecuted for assault.

    If he fails to do so not one single persons who subscribes to the South Asian commitment to the rule of law will give him their vote. http://www.hcmadras.tn.nic.in/ruleoflaw01022014.pdf

    We need an apology from the common candidate and an assurance that he will abjure the prevailing culture of impunity and guarantee that the rule of law will be applied to every citizen including himself and his son and the rest of his kith and kin and that no one by virtue of holding public office will be beyond the reach of the law or its requirements or protected from punishment.

    If this apology and guarantee is not made public within forty eight hours a campaign to expose every single political aspirant who has engaged in the subversion of the law and the protection of criminals will commence and escalate until it takes precedence over the presidential election itself.

    I do not want to be ruled by criminals any more.

    So imagine, if the army personnel are doing this to their own people [Buddhists], FOR the regime.. would they hesitate to loot your homes and kill you? Imagine how tough it would have been or the Tamils back then, dealing with thuggery officials… and how tough it would be for the Muslims and Christians alike if something horrible were to happen in the future?

    You built their houses? You ”robbed” their houses and thrown them out for a hefty price. Namal baby what was your commission?
    Father (MaRa)- 20%
    Uncle (GoRa)- 15%
