Sajith Calls Mangala A ‘Migratory Bird’

Continuing his string of verbal attacks against senior members of his own party, Sajith Premadasa referred to SLFP dissident and former Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera as a migratory bird who was trying to chart the UNP’s future course.

Mangala

“These migratory birds are attempting to violently attack long time UNP activists and supporters,” Premadasa charged at a Hambantota meeting on Friday.

Premadasa called for a disciplinary inquiry against Samaraweera and his supporters for their involvement in the Matara clashes between the pro and anti Ranil factions.

“We cannot just sit and watch while people in our own party are attacked by thugs from within the UNP itself,” he charged.

Samaraweera’s Matara District supporters allegedly disrupted a march calling for UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe’s ouster last Saturday, led by the pro-Premadasa group Maithri Guneratne and Shiral Lakthilake.

Guneratne’s father Herman Guneratne was arrested in connection with a shooting spree in the middle of Matara town, that injured at least three people including a soldier on home leave who has been left partially paralysed due to the shooting.

    Sajith Premadasa like Mervin Silva and Mahinda Rajapassa lies about his degrees and academic achievements! Mangala the Hairdresser has none!
    Birds of a feather, flock together..
    Mahinda Rajapassa who pretends to be a lawyer like Sajith attended law school for a year on special dispensation… Sajith is a moron in addition to being a SInhala Bhddinst fundamentalist – so the mystery is WHY HAS SAJITH NOT JOINED THE UPFA?
    Sajtih Premadasa whose lies about a degree from the London School of Economics has been exposed must be stripped of all party positions. He is a liar and a cheat and not fit to lead the UNP never mind be President of Lanka!
    Sajith certainly does not belong in the UNP with its liberal pluralist traditions, but this does not get Ranil the DICTATOR off the hook for the disaster that the party is today!
    Madam Rosy Senanayake must save the UNP from Sajtih and Ranil!

      The blame game between Mangy (with Ranil the dictator’s backing) and Sajith and the corrupt clowns of the Rajapassa cabinet of morons and criminals looking and going for it in parliament shows the depths to which politics and political culture has sunk.

      This generation of politicians is the pits and ALL of them need to be flushed down the toilet as the scum of the earth!

      Southern politics needs a completely new generation of clean politicians in addition to a new Constitution!

        Mr. Eran Wickramaratne should come forward and save the party. He is educated, excellent organiser and leader and has a clan record.

      You put it across VERY well Dude – telling us who really these guys are in just one paragraph.

      Sajith the lair – Mervin the thug – Mahinda the manipulator -Mangala the hair dresser -Ranil the DICTATOR We know they all are Eka-walle pol.

      Those of us who argue about how crispy clean one or another – claiming A is superior to B are the real FOOLS and LOSERS.

      Dude,

      “Madam Rosy Senanayake must save the UNP from Sajtih and Ranil!”

      How can Rosy save UNP from Sajith ? she is one of those very conspirators who are trying to bring Sajth in to the forefront ! mind you Rosy’s past is marred with so many alleged wrong doings , as for me Ravi K , Rosy et al have fulfilled the basic entrance qualifications for the current junta regime and just wasting their time in opposition.

      I agree that Sajith is not mature enough to be a leader. He is sabotaging attempts of progress by the party. INstead of partaking to finding a solution he merely intends to create further problems and be the problem for the UNP. All he has is his surname, strip that from him and you’ll find a young, immature, egomaniac, power hungry and incompetent individual.

      Even with all of Sujith’s shortcomings does Rosy really have the qualification to lead. This is not the time to settle for mediocrity which is what she represents. The UNP must search and find a true leader that can lead. They must have the virtues missing in most current day politicians.

      Right now the only real choice is for Karu J to take on a leadership care taker role till he can find and mould a suitable leader for the UNP.

    This shows that there is nothing to choose between the current UNP leadership (Ranil and Sajith) and the UPFA leadership – all are a bunch of corrupt, greedy, criminals who are into politics for the power and perks if offers!
    Ranil Wickramasinghe is a Dictator in the UNP which is NOT a DEMOCRATIC Party and Rajapassa is a Dictator of Lanka – they both believe in and promote dictatorships as do their gang of political thugs/ followers…

    POLITICAL CULTURE in Sri Lanka is corrupt and rotten to the core and we need a NEW GENERATION OF CLEAN young politicians to take over and get rid of Wickramasinghe, Gunaratne, Rajapassa and his family moronic criminals..
    Karu an Rosy Should cleans and lead a new UNP..!

      There was a barber at the top of Maya Avenue Colombo 6 , who rented a part of his premises to Madam to run a business enterprise .Her business failed after some time as was customary , and she moved out leaving the poor man with unpaid electricity and water bills which ran into six figures. The poor man died not much later , broken hearted, and let down by her “Mahattaya” whose grand father hailed from his own village -Amabalangoda . Had he been around , he would have vouched for her suitability to lead the UNP , and possibly the country .

    Mangala, you were known as a SCHEMER …. Now your true thuggish brutal dictatorial unleashing of force against your opponents you used with impunity under CBK is coming out again. Being in opposition if you can behave like this now, I can just imagine what you would have done being CBK’s blue eyed boy then. Now you are proving what we suspected… you are not only a schemer but also a rowdy and a thug…

    Ranil, If you want to save UNP please get this man Mangala kicked out from the party first like what MR did to save SLFP…

    Sajith may or may not know his father, originally from the Communist Party, tried to break the UNP in the
    early 1970s and tried to form the Citizens Front – that never took
    off the ground. When the seniors pitched on to him he meekly went back
    to the UNP.

    Sajith must learn to make the 1st XI one must get past the 3rd and 2nd
    XIs progressively. He does not have the learning or class of Athulathmudali, Kadirgamar or GL Peiris to get the necessary exemptions.

    I agree with Dude.
    There is a serious credibility gap lies in Sajith on account of his false declaration of holding a foreign University degree. What can people expect from such a person to avow a leadership ?

    Sajith in doing so has humiliated the innocent and underprivileged citizenry of this country.
    He has overestimated , overrated and puffed up himself to claim leadership of the country and nothing less. Further he boasts to have another Premadasa- era, the era his father ruled the country in terror and vengeance. People who have slightest memory of the terror reigned during Premadasa-era will not ever want to see that repeated. He must be appealing the younger generation who has no knowledge of this era.
    Nobody wants to go back to JRJ era or Premadasa era as we had enough of them.

    Sajith should make a public apology as he has trapped red-handed in his false declaration.

      Well said.No body wants to go back to JR ,Premadasa era .It is just like ”inguru deela miris gaththa wage”.JR is the father of all the destructions and Premadasa eventually capitalised on that. Most productive youth of the south perished during this era and we cannot afford for another mishap like that. We need a leader of the calibre of Mandela.Lee quan yu to build this country. Sadly no light at the horizon and we have to deal with this third grade corrrupted lot for a long period of time to come.

    Sajith Premadasa should know what is good for him, shut up, and go back to the hinterlands of Hamabantota.

    He has excelled in nothing. Really! He has never been in government! He has lived off his father’s bribe money ever since…Its not like R.Premadasa had anything else other than a PM’s salary and then of the President. Mrs. Premadasa probably enjoys his pension today. So what has Sajith been enjoying all these days???

    And, its time we get rid of this entitlement mentality once and for all. Telling someone else about it is not going to make the change. We have to vote, we have to get involved, and MUST be prepared to make sacrifices.

    The only reason..let me repeat, the only reason we have a bunch of misfits and crooks running the country on both sides of the aisle is because we have considered the management of the country – someone else’s problem to solve.

    The majority of those who died on the side of the LTTE were kids who saw nothing else other than Eelam as an option. WE allowed the situation to deteriorate to that extent, when Military intervention was the ONLY alternative. The brave soldiers who died and sacrificed limbs for Mother Lanka did in most part because it was a job, that gave them 3 meals a day, on a good day. They could not afford fees at a Institute that gave a certificate after 6 months of DVD lessons. They did not have the connections to get a job. (Anyone want to challenge me on that?? Be my guest! ) They became fodder in the Political shenanigans over 25 long years. Today, only their family grieves for them. Not a single of the so-called ‘Lions’,
    who have gone on to reap the riches of the war victory remember them except when laying a wreath somewhere, once a year.

    The was is over, and the Chinese 10% loans are drying up, and there is nothing much to show except a whole bunch of ‘white elephants’ from the Mattala airport, Hambantota harbor, Southern ‘death’ highway and many more. So, its the Tamils, Muslims and Christians that are being showcased for the illiterate masses as the causes of the mess, to cover up the criminal negligence of state governance.

    Sanath Jayasuriya was a world-class cricketer. Note WAS. He does not have the acumen or intellect to be a dep. minister. But then, compared to the rest of the misfits in the cabinet, he looks pretty smart!!!

    That is Sri Lanka’s tragedy. The idiots and dunces look very capable because we have allowed the lunatics to take over the governance of our country. UNTIL AND UNLESS WE CHANGE OUR ATTITUDES, EXPECTING CHANGE OF OTHERS WILL BE JUST SELF-SERVING STUPIDITY ON OUR PART.

    Posting comments on-line, insulting each other anonymously may stimulate some of us, but IF YOU CARE ABOUT SRI LANKA, YOU NEED TO CHANGE, FIRST!

      @upul
      Thanks for your script.Beautifully put and so true of sri lankas current predicament. Fat rogues on both sides of the aisle and a foolish populace gullible enough to be enticed with promises at election time. We will always be a country of lotus-eaters and the fat rogues will get fatter pilfering the countrys resources at every possible opportunity. Hey, one newly appointed deputy Minister even promised to “work hard”. Well,you know what that means. Making more money for himself before his time runs out.

    I have seen first hand the work SP has done in the villages and totally support him. Mangala is just trying to go back to his glory days under Chandrika, he is basically a base opportunist. Let’s not forget the vicious campaign he launched against Ranil a few years back. This is a bankrupt man and Sajith is way better than him, Ranil and the Rajapakses.

    Say what you want but this is the future President of Sri Lanka!

    I am with Mangala on this despite his misguided support for Ranil.
    Sajith is a lying cheating lightweight politician with no ideas and no brain.

    The UNP desperately needs a leader at this point and there is no elected member of the party at present strong enough or capable enough to unite and lead the party to victory against the Rajapaksa scum. There are many well educated, charismatic and able people among the Sinhalese to do the job and the party members should look among these for a leader. An effective opposition is a must for Sri Lanka, especially at a time when a dictator is ruining the country.

    He became a migratory bird after MR kicked him out of the cabinet for unfaithfullness. Now this unlucky bird is trying hard to dig his teeth into any worm that he can cling onto for his survival. First he visited the jailed Salvation Army Commander in his cell. Then he tried to woo the ex-CJ while she began her descent from grace.But no luck. So now he is trying to win over the Batalanda maestro for a spot in the sun. Wild are the ways of the wily and money-hungry politicians. Even the black-coated vultures of Hulftsdorp seem respectable in comparison.

    This ‘Migratory Bird’ Mangala who sacrificed his portfolio and left the government while unpers, were migrating the other way to the government to get money. I respect mangala for that reason. Ultimately he will be the winner not Sajith.

    Ado Bando, at least Mangala has realized the potential of RW, his Honesty, Integrity and Vision and is paying back today for denigrating RW then. Every other person who complain about RW, want him to step down, not because he has no Leadership Qualities or that RW is Dishonest, but because he has lost the staged elections. What assurance is there, that the replacement of RW can win, if MR continues to defraud future elections and win continuously?

    So the answer is not changing RW, but for all to unite and prevent MR from rigging and staging elections in the future. That is the only way out for this country as the Tamils did in the North.

    So wareng Bando Uthura balanda
    Adapang Barabagey wigahata.

    Bando what else are you good for other than to draw the Barabagey?

    Yes, Sajith!! Mangala is a migratory

    Be lucky he has not eaten political
    vermin like you. Even he feels you are
    unpalatable.

    You are only the voice of one Rajaa and
    an Alles.Your father was also looked after
    by the Rajas.

    But you do not even have the brains of a
