Sajin Appoints Rosy’s Daughter, 11 Others As CHOGM 70k Consultants

The Government has recruited several consultants to the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting 2013 to be the ‘face’ of the summit coordination efforts in November this year.

Thisakya Maya Senanayake

12 such consultants have been hired at remuneration in the range of Rs. 70,000 each, Colombo Telegraph learns. They include male and female youngsters of between 20-26 years old sources told Colombo Telegraph. The consultants function under the office of the Monitoring MP for the Foreign Ministry and presidential close associate Sajin Vaas Gunewardana. The consultants commenced work a few months ago.

Among the recruits are the 25 year old daughter of United National Party Parliamentarian former beauty queen and former Ambassador to Malaysia Rosy Senanayake,Thisakya Senanayake. Thisakya is a fashion design graduate from the London College of Fashion in 2012.

Colombo Telegraph learns that the daughter of John Keells Holdings Chairman Susantha Ratnayake, Anitra is also on the list of CHOGM consultants. John Keells Holdings is heavily involved in the CHOGM organisation and has been co opted for much of the event organisation and software and hospitality management.

It is not immediately clear what the criteria was for the selection of ‘consultants’ but it is reliably learnt that the appointments were made by Vaas Gunewardane.

All 12 CHOGM consultants are tipped to receive diplomatic positions in Sri Lankan embassies overseas after the summit is over. The locations of the postings include Ottawa Canada and Victoria Australia, the Colombo Telegraph learns.

    You don’t need brain to be a political leader or diplomat. The Rajapaksa regime is destroying the country. I have warned the Asian leaders, including Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. The China’s influence is increasing in the country, so does the Rajapaksa brothers’ madness. This unusual political development will be a detrimental to the South Asia’s stability. India has to boycott the CHOGM and ask the other leaders to do the same to make an embarrassing CHOGM to remove the Rajapaksa regime to safeguard the stability in the South Asia. The Rajapaksa regime will change the country as a criminal state, and take the ethnic problem to the next level. They are basically thugs, this government has less educated fools in the key positions than any other previous governments since the independence. I am warning you, the country is heading to a unrepairable stage. The people must wake up and throw the thugs out of the offices ASAP. They found posters in the North and explosives in the South, what a coincidence one week before the election. This trick played by the government to undermine the TNA.

    It is easy to handle a Diplomatic position when they eventually get them (or a position in the Ministry of External Affairs). First when they join they might stammer and stutter every time a question is asked. But soon they learn to come out with an arrogant No! to any requests made. Exposing their ignorance is nicely avoided, pretending to be the arrogant MEA employee. They are welcome to the MEA fraternity

    All you people with negative comments are just whiners. You people know nothing about this girl. She is as qualified as any you will find today in Sri Lanka to do this kind of PR work. Your assumptions based on no other reason than hatred of the government is so pathetic to listen to.

    Wake up, broaden your minds and cheer up.

    This is the problem with our country. These people are all connected to each other in some way or the other, and are like one family. Behind the scenes, they are all in the same Colombo high society. They will always look after each other. There are no saviours of people in the opposition and for the idiots who think the UNP is going to save the country.. well, that’s not going to happen. I lived through the 80’s in SL, so know that the destruction of our society is the result of what the UNP introduced to the country. I also know that most current leaders of the UNP (including the some of the so-called “next” leaders) are “well dodgy” (sorry, cant find anything better in my limited vocabulary to describe them). Having said that, I totally believe the Rajapakshes should be replaced. However, let’s be under no d illusion that everything will be rosy when Rosys come to power.

    General comment to person call Mr/Ms. Gamma, your idea really shows that you are really fan of this system and degrade general Sri Lankan university students. This is your right to say any bullshit and be a blind follower for anyone. yOU people are never help to critical and develop society. You are a part of elitism or a “wandibattakam”

      Hello Sisira Putha, listen to me carefully. I do NOT like this system and I do not like Ranil, Premadasa and any other available system. I will support Ven Sobitha when the time is right. I am degrading the education system here. Why do we keep producing arts graduates who are unemployable???? To send as house maids???
      So get real.
      In this instance I would have done the same as Sajith so what??? I would never do anything else that this fraud does. Happy?

    This group of girls and boys are managed by a protocol chap in Foreign ministry, the notorios Majinta Jayasingha who got promoted despite not passing any government exam. No wonder, blind selecting the blind to be led by a blind!

    Apart from these 10 consultants, CHOGM office in BMICH has hired some 20 odd consultants whose salaries (45, 000 each) are payed by the Lakshman Kadirgamar Institute. Spineless and good for nothing director of the Kadirgamar Institute is too weak to deny Sajin’s requests. When they pay outsiders’ salaries, the Institute claim not to have money for research work which they r mandated to do.

        Bandi,

        How dare you call them village bums. Is it their fault that they have been deprived of the opportunities they should have gotten to uplift their status?

        Stop blaming this government for all the problems. What about the UNP? Was it not JR Jayawardene who allowed the LTTE to become such a powerful terrorist organization sucking the country’s economy dry plus allowing massive killings and bombings to take place? Did the UNP make any effort to get rid of the current education system when they were in power and replace it with the one that prevailed before SWRD Bandaranaike changed it?

        I’ve seen many of your kind. The ones who refuse to get down from their high horse and who also thoroughly enjoy making fun of those who are less fortunate. No wonder the village folks can’t stand people like you. What a bunch of losers you people are.

          Hello Suranee stop being a goody goody two shoes. Whose fault is it that those bums are deprived???? We come from the same villages . In our days we spoke and learned English better than or as good as any Colombo school product did. Bandaranayake created this mess. And who else is to blame other than the village bums who vote for Medamulana jokers and Mervin Silvas???
          They do not like universal languages, they think they are the best educated in the world. The most intelligent race!!!! Not even a 15000000 people speak and understand ,their language so what do you want for them???
          Get real. It is not the village that is the problem it is the attitude. People vote for Johnston Fernandapos son the father is. The after is the biggest hora that Sri Lanka had and they vote for the son who spends their own money bribing them with cell phones and illicit brews so how smart are they? Do they deserve any better.
          You are another bum sucker, trying to praise a govt. That lies to its people, kill them indiscriminately and rob them .good luck to you. You can praise them till it is your. Turn

    Dear GOSL,

    There are so many youngsters between 20-26 years old capable of doing the job. Many come from the villages and have worked hard to educate themselves. These are the people who should have been appointed as consultants. Why are you depriving them of this opportunity? Are you embarrassed of their family background and their humble beginnings?
