Rs. 157 Million Spent For Entertainment In Presidential Palaces In Nov/Dec

A whopping Rs. 157 million had been spent by the Rajapaksas on food and beverages alone in entertaining those who visited the many ‘Presidential palaces’ that were built in various locations in the country during the Rajapaksa regime.

Mahinda airportPresident Maithripala Sirisena during an interview on ITN last night revealed that in the months of November and December last year, Rs. 157 million had been spent to treat guests who visited the many Presidential palaces located in Fort, Anuradhapura, Kandy, Nuwaraeliya, Embilipitiya, Mahiyangana, Kataragama as well as a brand new ‘co-ordination center’ that had been constructed in Tangalle – the hometown of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

He also said that a brand new, luxurious airplane worth 16 million USD had been ordered for the exclusive use of President Rajapaksa.

“It was due to be delivered to Sri Lanka by next month. However, following discussions the Prime Minister, the Ministers and I halted the importation of the aircraft and allocated those finances to purchase spare parts for the aircraft that are currently used by Sri Lankan and Mihin Lanka Airlines,” he said.

        They all, father, offspring, siblings and the others can do it very well for 27/7 even with a piece of dirty linen, no matter from where it was collected. They facilitate 5
        themselves with the use of Super Luxury Buses, expensive hotels, palaces, and hideouts, On top of that a special plane was on order (probably with ladies to fly the craft (from US or UK) and Air Hottests / InflightAttendants from Thai, Russia and indonesia. Was thare an order for two fighter jets to provide security for the plane as whole?

        Difficult to say but recently there was a picture of a female Minister creeping under the table to give him a Monica Lewinsky. So I guess the answer is yes. After all, if Clinton can, who not Mara?

      If the current administration is fair, all these 157mio should be taken back from MR and co…. with that funds they should buy dialyse apparatus to the Rajarata kidney patients. This should be made legally clear to Rajapakshes. Then people would really get it that the current administration led by MS is genuine.

      What Happened to His Excellency Mahinda Rajapaksa?

      Mr. President Mr. Maiytipala Sirisena Says,

      PLEASE, NO H.E FOR ME — President

      http://www.dailynews.lk/?q=local/please-no-he-me-president

      Presidential palaces built around the country would be used for meaningful purposes
      Does not intend to lead a luxurious life at expense of the public
      Do not line up schoolchildren at ceremonies I attend
      Deal for super-luxurious plane valued at approximately Rs. 2,080 m made by ex-President cancelled
      – See more at: http://www.dailynews.lk/?q=local/please-no-he-me-president#sthash.51imSE8G.dpuf

      President Maithripala Sirisena on Saturday requested that the honorary title Athi Garu (His Excellency) or Uthumanan (Your Highness) which were commonly used over the past years to address Presidents, not be used with reference to him.

      He also asked not to use the term Aryawa when referring to his wife. He made these observations participating in the Maithri Pilisandara interview conducted by veteran writer Upul Shantha Sannasgala and telecast over Rupavahini and ITN on Saturday.

      Viewers said President Sirisena expressed valuable opinions on how he would act in his position as the President, the nature of his political journey suffused with challenges and difficulties, the nature of the recent election campaign and how he faced it, the content of his manifesto, the new positive political culture that is enforced and what needs to be done to protect it, the nature of national government, rule of law and culture and aesthetic appreciation etc., during the one and half hour interview.

      The President said he does not intend to lead a luxurious life at the expense of the public.

      He said the existing Presidential palaces built around the country would be used for some other meaningful purposes, adding that the Presidential Palace in Colombo would be used only for state functions.

      Making a special revelation on the super-luxurious plane valued at approximately Rs. 2,080 million to be brought down to Sri Lanka for the use of the President as per directive of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa, President Sirisena said the deal was immediately cancelled by him after discussions with Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, adding that the money would be used to buy spare parts needed for the civil aviation sector of Sri Lanka. He said he totally objects to the helicopter culture that wasted the country’s money, adding that neither he or his family members would use helicopters except for very important official work.

      The President also instructed not to line up schoolchildren at ceremonies that he attends.

      He also recalled how schoolchildren were inconvenienced during the state ceremonies over the past years. President Sirisena said he had instructed that publishing advertisements in the print and electronic media spending public money on the President’s birthday and various other occasions be terminated.

      He also requested not to exhibit cutouts and digital screens containing his images on road sides, or in cities. The President also underscored the fact that his victory was made possible thanks to all groups of people who cast their vote for him.

      “Some are of the wrong opinion and are attempting to show that I did not get the support of the Buddhist majority. This is false,” he said.

      President Sirisena analysing the votes cast in majority Buddhist electorates, observed that the vote base of his opponent drastically eroded and was in his (President Sirisena’s) favour. “People belonging to all ethnic groups spread throughout the country favoured my political manifesto which assured good governance, democracy and good moral society. Various goods were distributed and people were bribed to obtain their votes. Despite thuggery and political and use of military power by the opposition camp, the people cast their vote for trust and confidence favouring what was said in my manifesto,” he said.

      President Sirisena also paid tribute to Dr. Pandit W.D. Amaradeva for his contribution to keep the Sri Lankan flag flying high in his chosen field.

      The President also appreciated the roles played by artistes and musicians. He highly valued the musical knowledge, language skills, the talent and the ability of singers and artistes who kept their fans entertained.

      President Sirisena said he was also impressed the way Rathnadeepa Janma Bhoomi was sung by Pandit Amaradeva for which the lyrics were by the late Mahagamasekera.

      The President while recalling his love and affection for his mother, referred to the song Adaraye Ulpatha Wu Amma sung by Victor Rathnayake.

      The song was played on the request of the President.

      President Sirisena also said bestowing on him the SLFP leadership was a victory for his government and the state.

      “This was something needed for the stability of my government and the state,” he said responding to a question by Sannasgala.

      “If we are to successfully complete the 100 day programme, we need the majority in Parliament. That comes to the government provided the Alliance led by the SLFP supports the government. I understood this well and I assumed the SLFP leadership to ensure stability of the government,” the President said.

      He said to make this a reality, he had a brief but a straightforward discussion with former President Mahinda Rajapaksa, who was also the former Party President.

      “He agreed to hand over the SLFP leadership to me at the discussion. I also informed him that I would have officials of my choice to take the SLFP forward,” he said.

      President Sirisena referring to his assuming Presidency on January 9 as the new President, taking oaths before a senior member of the Judiciary, Justice Sripavan, assuming SLFP leadership on January 16 at the SLFI, appointing Justice Sripavan as the Chief Justice and he taking oaths before him on January 30, said they were all a new chapter of the political culture and had nothing to do with fate. “It is undoubtedly a political miracle,” he added.

      He pointed out that the removal of former Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranaike was illegal and now the Supreme Court has been back on the right track.

      He said steps would be taken to severely deal with those who plundered and embezzeled state funds and misused state lands without giving any consideration to their status or party affiliations.

      Q. What’s Next for Sri Lanka’s Mahinda Rajapaksa?

      http://www.huffingtonpost.com/taylor-dibbert/whats-next-for-sri-lanka_b_6568088.html

      Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa was voted out of office in early January. This came as a surprise to many. First elected in 2005, Rajapaksa was widely credited with winning Sri Lanka’s civil war against the separatist Tamil Tigers in 2009. Maithripala Sirisena, a cabinet member in Rajapaksa’s administration who was also acting defense minister during the end of the war, is now president.

      Trying to win an unprecedented third term, Rajapaksa called a snap election two years early, thinking he’d be reelected handily. Just a few months ago, it seemed that no one could credibly challenge him or the United People’s Freedom Alliance, the political coalition led by Rajapaksa’s Sri Lanka Freedom Party.

      Sirisena was supported by a broad coalition, including leading Tamil and Muslim parties and the United National Party. This was a close election and more than 81 percent of Sri Lankans turned out to vote. Rajapaksa still earned more support from the Sinhalese community than Sirisena, the ethnic group that comprises about three-quarters of the country’s population.

      Sri Lankans were fed up with Rajapaksa’s authoritarian brand of governance, widespread corruption and nepotism. And even though both candidates ignored the concerns of minority (Tamil and Muslim) voters during the campaign, the potential to address those issues is greater with Rajapaksa out of power.

      Almost immediately after Rajapaksa conceded, commentators were already speculating that his political career may not be over.

      Sirisena campaigned on a platform focused on good governance and anti-corruption, but he also outlined significant constitutional reforms — including abolishing the country’s executive presidential system and reintroducing a parliamentary system.

      Shortly after the election, a split in the Sri Lanka Freedom Party emerged — one group backed Sirisena and the other supported Rajapaksa. Historically, Sri Lanka has been led by one of the two big Sinhala-Buddhist parties, either the Sri Lanka Freedom Party or the United National Party. Most Sri Lanka Freedom Party members did not back Sirisena’s candidacy, but profound divisions could have had wider implications. Yet less than a week after the Sri Lanka Freedom Party split, Rajapaksa announced that he was resigning as head of the party so that Sirisena could take his place.

      Parliamentary elections are expected in late-April and Sirisena has made it clear that he hopes to abolish the executive presidency before then, though he’d need to muster a two-thirds majority in parliament to make that happen. If Sirisena were able to make such a change, that would mean that the real fight for power would be the parliamentary election. And, since Sri Lanka’s recent presidential election was so close, the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (the political party which currently holds the most seats in parliament anyway) would have a good shot at winning that election.

      So is Mahinda Rajapaksa down, but not out?

      In theory, Rajapaksa could eventually be appointed as a national list member of parliament — though that seems unlikely. As the current head of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party, Sirisena would have to approve of such an appointment, something he’s unlikely to do. Sirisena needs to prove he can govern and that the situation in Sri Lanka — particularly as it relates to corruption and the rule of law — will change under his watch. Cutting a political deal with Rajapaksa would be politically unwise, weaken his credibility and open the door to a Rajapaksa resurgence.

      There have been other rumors that elements of the United People’s Freedom Alliance would unite behind a new, Rajapaksa-led political party. That would be an intriguing development though its’ not clear how much support the former president would be able to garner if he were to form a new party.

      Furthermore, allegations of an attempted coup (moments after he discovered he’d lost the election) are not going away, which does not help. The Sirisena administration has requested an investigation, but official statements regarding the findings of the inquiry have not yet been made. In addition, evidence of widespread corruption during Rajapaksa’s tenure will likely receive significant attention in the coming months.

      Corruption and coup allegations coupled with the fact that Rajapaksa no longer heads the Sri Lanka Freedom Party makes a comeback very difficult, but ruling it out completely seems premature.

      For the past decade, Rajapaksa and his family dominated Sri Lanka’s political scene. Two of his brothers held senior positions in government. Another brother, Chamal, is the speaker of parliament. Rajapaksa’s son, Namal is also a member of parliament and was obviously being groomed for a larger role on Sri Lanka’s political stage. Rajapaksa’s web of nepotism also extended to the civil service and government-run businesses.

      Mahinda Rajapaksa is a savvy, charismatic political operator and the Rajapaksa brand isn’t toxic — not yet anyway. He lost a close election and his name will always be linked to the defeat of the Tamil Tigers. Nonetheless, the political space for Rajapaksa to return to power is clearly shrinking.

      So is this South Asian autocrat retreating or resilient? The former is far more likely, but the latter isn’t out of the question. Political comebacks have been borne out of more dire circumstances.

        “Sirisena was supported by a broad coalition, including leading Tamil and Muslim parties and the United National Party.”

        Part of it is a misnomer. The Muslims on their own individually supported Mr Sirisena NOT at the behest of Muslim Parties. The Muslim Parties only joined the bandwagon of Mr Sirisena to pursue their selfish greed and NOT to serve the community

      “MR should be castrated for playing with our money!!!”

      http://www.island.lk/index.php?page_cat=article-details&page=article-details&code_title=118789

      * Pays tribute to social media for overwhelming MR

      Pointing out that the then incumbent launched his campaign eight months ahead of January poll, President Sirisena said that the Opposition couldn’t have defeated the Rajapaksas without spearheading role played by the social media. Young boys and girls had played a significant role in the Opposition strategy, the President said, the social media and the Internet had contributed to his victory in a big way.

      The President was perhaps responding to his predecessor, who recently publicly acknowledged his failure to counter an social media campaign. Former President Rajapaksa said that their failure to realise the threat and take counter measures had caused a debilitating set back to his campaign.

      My guess however, is that Rajapaksa strongly believes that 47.5 per cent of the Sri Lankans, and over 50 per cent Sinhalese, who voted for him did not give two hoots about those allegations, no matter how substantiated they are.

      nearly 50% of the voters are the fools of the fools. They would never wake up from their slumber. Media men and women should feed them up with fact and figures of the ground realities. That should be the priority number one if this nation will ever want to raise head.

    The strange thing is ,no matter what, the majority of The Sinhala race still believe it is a western conspiracy against their leader .They believe Chandrika & Ranil have always been Western Agents . Now they feel Maithree has been bought over .

    How do you make people with clear visions insist they are blind? Even God and Buddha comes and endorse it, they will not accept it.

    One Condition , all Maithree has to do is some jimarts and hoodwink these ignoramus so begotten by generation race, they do not believe in reality.

    They believe it was a conspiracy against Mahinda , most say thy did the same thing for the poor man about Tsunami money , but we did vote him in ,h won the war, got rid of enemies of the country like Lasantha , put the Muslims and Tamils where the belong ,( in their place) . Yes w will bring him back in the next General election and everything will be back . You never know with these bunch ..
    —————————————————————————-
    My sincere advice is especially for the fearless , is be more awake and alert now than ever before ,it is your life and it is your fundamental right to make use of all that is in your power to protect yourselves now than ever before, now you are all an easy target, you can be merciful but not mindful of your own lives, the slightest space they get thy will not spare your lives trust me.

      “How do you make people with clear visions insist they are blind? Even God and Buddha comes and endorse it, they will not accept it.”

      JVP and the Common Sense Phamplet Sri Lanka 2015.

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_Sense_%28pamphlet%29

      Common Sense[1] is a pamphlet written by Thomas Paine in 1775–76 that inspired people in the Thirteen Colonies to declare and fight for independence from Great Britain in the summer of 1776. The pamphlet explained the advantages of and the need for immediate independence in clear, simple language. It was published anonymously on January 10, 1776, at the beginning of the American Revolution and became an immediate sensation. It was sold and distributed widely and read aloud at taverns and meeting places.

      Washington had it read to all his troops, which at the time had surrounded the British army in Boston. In proportion to the population of the colonies at that time (2.5 million), it had the largest sale and circulation of any book published in American history.[2] As of 2006, it remains the all-time best selling American title.[3]

      Common Sense presented the American colonists with an argument for freedom from British rule at a time when the question of whether or not to seek independence was the central issue of the day. Paine wrote and reasoned in a style that common people understood. Forgoing the philosophical and Latin references used by Enlightenment era writers, he structured Common Sense as if it were a sermon, and relied on Biblical references to make his case to the people.[4] He connected independence with common dissenting Protestant beliefs as a means to present a distinctly American political identity.[5] Historian Gordon S. Wood described Common Sense as “the most incendiary and popular pamphlet of the entire revolutionary era”.[6]

    Such expenses for food, beverages & entertainment were the prerogative of feudal rulers of old.
    They are unjustified when thousands living below the poverty-line are on Samurdhi benefits.

        Look what a jackal he is calling himself engineer robo cop, trying to spin like skunk in a dryer..

        ” because Aircrafts are manufactured only for confirmed orders – never for stocks “

        He expects us to believe like going to dosa kadde and not paying after filling – even there the batter is overnight order or no order.

        ON ORDER ONLY- YAKKO HINGANOOO…. Airbus/Boeing Systems Ra_Badda Rabok please stick to your SNAIL Mail it would be better with your saliva.

        He is planning to dig for steel, aluminium etc as if Rolls Royce has no suppliers to build the engine- his never dreamt that satellites came after city. If only he had self-respect he would just travel to TN and see auto spares still being manufactured with cars TVS Madurai family business never with any centre help like all Tamil Nadu because the ancient kingdom stood on its own- negotiating anything that came in and found peace.

      Rabok. How about if he had had that particular influence surely he can achieve all what he had promised including cancelling the super luxury Aeroplane ordered by the Royal family. He is not a modaya or greedy .He’s a simple man going along in the right path .This is still a honey moon period but Have confidence on this simple man. We do not need extravagance.that era is hopefully over. The last Regime looted the country. I hear the oil pipes had been leaking for many years the villagers are made to drink contaminated water ect. What happened ? Who was responsible ? The leaders and followers enjoyed the money allocated for these purposes and the country was neglected. Super highways were built to show the visiting dignitaries and for the Racing while the poor we’re suffering. Chronic Kidney Disease has reached to epidemic level there is a shortage of Dialysis machines in Rural Srilanka. whose faults are they ? The money is syphoned off for others pleasure.Shameful.

      Rabok,

      like every thing else in the past , yet again you have shown your utter ignorance /stupidity on this particular matter as well !

      first , Sri Lankan Airlines had done the ordering on behalf of SL government and it wasn’t one off order , total of 6 new air buses had been ordered and one of it’s new air buses has been upgraded to fulfill your heroes innocent day dreams , which is to have US air force 1 style, state of the art super luxury facilities , apparently all these fancy gadgets are being fitted as an option , if and when the king wishes to spread his wings ( total of 3 working days to be grounded for this exercise alone ), as usual you jumped the gun by accusing MS for being ignorant or trying to mislead the populace , don’t you think , you need some time to think about your own conduct and evaluate your true mental capacity !

      your heroes are only good for you and the rest of illiterate two legged SL populace , glad your type doesn’t represent the majority !

      Why not ? If these are not supportive by documents, the opposition could argue on the issue in the parliament.

      Today opposition seems to have no argumetns except the size of the cabinet, fully cancellation of Casinos, need of further price reductions etc…

      I found FEW of the oPPOSTION – searching for sympathy even if they are to connected with all kind of abuses though the radius of them are not comparable to those of sharks (MR, GR, NR and other few ministers).

    This fellow, coward MaRa cheated every single citizen of SL with the excutive power. Sinhala foolish cowards went behind with racist bloody hands when they turn back after 9 years then only the foolish mass recognized that MaRa and Co. robbed every single resources of SL. When five years ago SF told “Yahapalanaya” he was sent to jail by foolish 62 lakh votes. If he won the injury to SL is not this much. Now without delaying jail MaRa and his associates for relief the of the country.

        You are so vengeful of one man changing his religion back to that of his ancesstors. Spare a thought for millions who were immorally and at times forcefully converted to christianity – through jobs, land, business oppprtunities and education for children.
        There is no worse enemy for you guys than a one who abdicate your religion.

          Bandaranaike ancestors were not forced at the point of a sword to change their religion. They voluntarily changed their religion to financially benefit from the British Imperialists. They did not even have the excuse of low caste social stigma that prompted the change of religion.

          Solomon West Ridgeway Bandaranaike changed his religion, not scared of the Buddhist monks, but to benefit politically, and to rule the roost after independence. And he succeeded.

          Paul, do not ever forget that the Horagolla lajjanathi horas are those that are your worst enemy for abdicating their religion for financial gain.

          Poverty and caste stigma was used by the imperial invaders to convert. That is to be strongly condemned. However, the Sinhala and Tamil Ruling Class of Sri Lanka, can never be excused for changing their religion – from Buddhism/Hinduism to Christianity, and again back from Christianity to Buddhism/Hisduism. The prostitute mind-set is better than what they have.

        Exactly on the dot T Alles – These Bandaranayakes portray themselves as saviours of this country – in fact they were bootlickers of English rulers – and received favours in the form of lands , higher positions in the white Gov. , Titles etc.etc.- for doing the dirty works of Whites

    Rs 157 million is only for food and entertainment at different Palaces for the King.

    IT does not include any expenses for Fuel used in cars.

    there were two luxury RV buses jmported for the CHOGM and Sashendra Rajapakse’s Family and Sagin Vass were using those two buses. So, there may be many vehicles that are being used by the supporters but the govt does not know.

    I wonder what those 47% of the people who voted for this plunderer of poor people’s money think of Rajapaksa now. How many presidential palaces are needed for the Raja in such a small island as Sri Lanka?
    How dare he spend 157 million Rupees of other people’s money in two months to win himself another term of office?
    This I think is the tip of the iceberg as we all know how many billions the parliament allocated to Rajaksa’s office over the years. Any chance this criminal plunderer has of regaining any degree of political power must be nipped in the but and the sure way of doing that would be by relentlessly pursuing all his illegal activities and exposing them to the public. He is now an ordinary man and should be brought to justice.

    Ask the governments abroad to freeze the money they have stashed away, and send it back to the rightful owners, the Sri Lankan people. Use it to recover from the waste and corruption this family has been responsible for. They looted and plundered everything they can lay their filthy hands on, and should face the law and held accountable for all crime. They have abused the trust the people placed in them, and ruled in the most arrogant and greedy ways. A thousand curses to this despicable family.

    The SL government should engage an asset recovery firm like Kroll Associates to find out where these rogues stashed their money and then engage lawyers to get it back.

    The government should bill MR for all the private/personal trips taken by the sons.

    HE no more. Now can the new CJ say, “your lordship” no more? ” your honor” will do just fine!

    It shows that the Rajapakse Govt was a Govt of the Rajapakses, for the Rajapaksess by the Rajapakses.

    Everyday we hear of such incidents of monumental misuse of funds as in this case. Punishment after following proper procedure is welcome. But what is the use of all that unless we can recover at least a good part of it. That is the best thing we can do.

    Where did all the cuts and commissions go? As is the practice of corrupt rulers, they go in to Swiss Banks and other monetary havens. Hosni Mubarak of Egypt is supposed to have stacked up US$ 60 billion. All the funds were frozen after the Egyptian Revolution. Ultimately, those who gain are the Western Banks and Powers. The money does not come back to its rightful owners, the downtrodden masses of Egypt. It will be the same story here.

    If devasiri shares similar intellectual integrity normally expected from those with similar background, he should first pursue this whopping 157 million misuse of state funds before going after Sara and CPA.

    Should the entertainment invoice of galle face hotel be material in the bigger scheme of things, the donors will pursue Sara.

    It is best devasiri focuses on the daylight robbery of 157 million by MR

    This was loan money to SL that was abused by the ” king” and his cohorts as they pleased. Thank goodness they were defeated at the elections since SL was ast the brink of another ruthless dictatorship in the world. I hope that people will wake up for the general elections too. Too bad their swiss bank accounts cannot be publicized. One just has to winder how much of public funds ended up there.

    For executives who seek private jets they are freely available for sale in the world market just like horses to ride for leisure. However there is nothing one can buy from high end manufactures like Boeing and Airbus for $16 million. In fact, not even mid range luxury executive jets are there to buy for $16 million. Even a non luxurious mid size plane that carry just 9 people over 2-3000 N mile range cost $16. They’re readily available for delivery in countries such as Brasil. So there is no question of ordering and wait in a que to buy. You cannot cancel aircraft orders. Neither can you buy parts for such an order for luxury aircraft manufactures do not manufacture parts for planes that Air Lanka uses or our Air force uses. This is another My3 foolish lie like that golden horses brought from from Buckingham palace in America. What a lair or a misguided man we have choose as our president?

    After vacating Temple Tree during the wee hours of January 09, Rajapaksa and his entourage flew to his native village in two helicopters. He addressed the people who came to say sorry to him claiming his loss at the polls were due to the vote bank of Thamils in the North, East and Central hills. But, this is not the whole truth. The truth was he lost the Sinhala – Buddhist votes in a big way compared to 2010 election. In 2010 he polled 61.73% of the votes in 16 districts in the south barring Nuwara Eliya. In 2015 he polled only 50.64% of votes in the same 16 electorates. That means he lost 11.09% of votes. On the other hand Sirisena increased Sarath share of vote from 38.26% to 48.38% an increase of 10.12% in the 16 districts. Thus when the votes got split right down the middle (50.64 for Rajapaksa and 48.38 for Sirisena) Thamils as well as Muslims votes became the deciding factor between victory and defeat. In the 2 districts in the North, 3 districts in the East and Nuwara Eliya district in the Central Sirisena secured 72.01% as compared to 31.34% to Rajapaksa. In the 2010 elections Rajapaksa secured 31.48% to 68.60% to Sarath Fonseka. The blunder made by Rajapaksa was he relied solely on the Sinhala – Buddhist votes and not Thamil or Muslim votes. This explains the reason why Rajapaksa treated the Thamil people and their leaders like children of lesser god. Even a innocuous request for the transfer of the military governor G.A. Chandrasri resulted only his term being extended to another 5 years. It was a slap on the face of the TNA and well as the Chief Minister of the Northern Provincial Council. The plea by crying mothers for the release of their disappeared sons and daughters, the appeal of political prisoners for release or amnesty, and the pleadings of the displaced people in Valikaamam North, Sampur involving more than 50,000 people just fell on deaf ears. Rajapaksa during the election campaign in the North asked the people to forget the past and elect the known devil instead of the unknown angel. But this appeal did not carry an iota of conviction among the Thamils. By and large Rajapaksa must blame himself and nobody else – gods and astrologers – for his ignominious defeat.
