Sajith Congratulates Gota

Sajith Premiadas has congratulated Gotabaya Rajapaksa on becoming the seventh President of Sri Lanka.

Issuing a statement a short while ago Sajith Premadasa said: “At the conclusion of a hard fought and spirited election campaign, It is my privilege to honour the decision of the people and congratulate Mr. Gotabaya Rajapaksa on his election as the seventh President of Sri Lanka.”

“In light of today’s decision by the electorate, I have decided to step down as Deputy Leader of the United National Party with immediate effect,” he further said.

We publish below the statement in full:

At the conclusion of a hard fought and spirited election campaign, It is my privilege to honour the decision of the people and congratulate Mr. Gotabaya Rajapaksa on his election as the seventh President of Sri Lanka.

I express my heartfelt gratitude to all of our citizens who voted for me, in all corners of the island. I am humbled that you placed your faith in me. Your support has been a fountain of strength throughout my twenty-six-year-long political career. I also wish to place on record my gratitude to all those who worked tirelessly on my campaign. My family and I will never forget your sacrifice and dedication.

We have just witnessed the most peaceful presidential election in the history of our independent republic. This was a result of the democratic gains and institutional reforms that have taken place over the last five years, that empowered an independent elections commission and restored the rule of law. My appeal to the incoming President is that he take this process forward and strengthen and protect the democratic institutions and values that enabled his peaceful election as the 7th President of Sri Lanka. I also urge Mr. Rajapaksa to ensure that the post-election environment is peaceful, and that no citizen or NDF party supporter is persecuted or harmed for their role in supporting my candidacy.

For 26 years, I have been an active politician in this country. During that time, I have made every effort to serve the people, in my home district of Hambantota and wherever and whenever they needed my assistance. It has been my privilege to serve as Housing Minister in this Government for five years, prioritizing the creation of a home-owning society by 2025. I hope the people understand that these were sincere, heartfelt efforts to uplift the lives of my fellow citizens.

In light of today’s decision by the electorate, I have decided to step down as Deputy Leader of the United National Party with immediate effect.

In the coming weeks, in consultation with all those who supported my presidential bid, the people who have stood by me through my political journey and my loved ones, I will reflect on the future of my political career and where my life will take me hereafter. Bound to the people of Sri Lanka, I remain their faithful servant, today and always.

Sajith Premadasa M.P.

      Bondscam Ranil must resign for destroying Sajith’s chances of winning the elections by delaying nominations till it was too late because of RW’s own greed for power.

      UNP must get rid of Ranil before the general elections because people hate Ranil for his corruption and Jarapalanaya with the Americans, and this makes the UNP lose.

      Sajith Premadasa, MP,

      Thanks for a well-fought election campaign. Like in 1970 and 1977, the people got tired of the inadequacies of the ruling regimes. In your 2019 election, you were fighting the inadequacies of Ranil and Sirisena , and the timing and the tide was against you.

      Gotabaya and SLPP exploited the Sinhala Buddhist racism, even insulting the Buddha, and got 70 percent of the Sinhala Buddhists to vote for him. Still 30 percent of Sinhala Buddhists voted for you.

      Certainly, there is a distribution of the IQs of the Sinhala Buddhists, where the measured mean IQ is 79. Should the measured mean IQ be revised down, based on this large statistical presidential poll to 69?

      Half hearted congratulations President Sir ! but keep your promises that you serve unbiased to all the citizens of our beautiful nation. It’s not a family business ,remember that.
      Protecting all kinds of criminals and ,murderers is not expected from you . People expects from you to be fair to all minorities and make this shattered nation’s all citizens to be proud to call themselves Srilankans.
      That’s all.
      Enough of protecting criminals whether they’re friends ,family or foe or just not for the family and friends Sir?
      Remember men may come and men may go but we the people are for ever.

        To the man from the UNP , RW it’s time for you to exit from Politics. You gave proved yourself again and again that you’re a worthless cunning man and not a Politician to be called.
        You have also single handedly destroyed UNP for your own
        selfishness , arrogance ( well known) by all.
        Time to get lost or banged up behind bar for all your devious actions . You have played out out our country and its people . You’re not fit to be a Politician ever.
        Same applies to Sillisena as well.
        Now it’s the turn of the So called Exterminator . Hope he does not start giving sweets and chocolates in the form of big positions and vehicles to his henchmen and women.
        Our country is poor , awaits for hand outs from rich nations. Hope he remembers that.
        Also Return all the Loots you and your family Looted from our nation and people during your time and after honourably.
        Karma is a bitch.

    Now people in Sri Lanka can enjoy their lives very well.
    Every young person( Man and woman) would be offered a efficacious job.
    Foreign loans and very heavy cost of living would be eliminated very swiftly.
    People will have a new country without any difficulty and hardship.

    This can be a turning point for another 25 years of family rule cum dictatorship, ending in another war, like the singhala only policy started the 30year war or a turning point for Development, which might be for the good of few.

      I cant understand the average mind set of our people .I thought they would see it right at least in the eleventh hour.
      :
      But to tell you, when listening to that Naga story in Kelaniya, to have brought gems or diaments, make me see it right, that majority of people down there ( I am living in europe) are so stupid and easily manipulative for anything.
      :
      I really dont know why PEOPLE s brains seem to be not working well. I dont think that the country will be led to progress by a bunch of thugs … instead, we can end up being an another Libya style country. THat is for sure. Sad for the future of democrats, respect and dignified people.

        Babalathaappu,

        Hard to understand?

        You see, the mean measured IQ is 79. Even though the literacy rate is 96 percent , they may be able to read, but not understand. The other issue is the short memories, as a result of multiple factors.

        All these affect their common sense. So they believe all what was told by the corrupt politicians .

        They dream that their problems will go away with the promises,

        This is a case of changing horses. The Sirisena Ranil duo and their team was a failure. Sajith had this baggage to carry .

        One wonders if the mean IQ was 100, would they have elected the corrupt Mafia family?

        The Wahhabi/Salafi Terrorists Easter Sunday attack brought the security issue to the front burner .For the Sinhala Buddhists, it was vote for Sinhala Buddhist racism and Security from Wahhabi Salafie Terrorists , and for the minorities, it was a matter of law and order and peaceful existence, unmolested by the Sinhala Buddhist Racists.

        Gotabaya got about 70 percent of the Sinhala Buddhist vote and about 10 percent of the minority votes, to get 53 percent overall.

        Gotabaya: 70×0.7 + 30×0.1 = 52 percent.

    Premadasa was always a scapegoat!
    It is Bondscam Ranil who has won, though he should be forced to resign for destroying Sajith’s chances and the UNP with his corrupt butterfly network and by delaying Sajith’s nomination because of his (RWs) greed for power. UNP will now loose the General Elections too.

    But ironically, once again the US puppet Bondscam Ranil has won, but Ranil must be impeached for looting the Central Bank soon.

      Election Results,

      Change.

      Reminds me as to what happened during the 1970 election when SLFP/LSSP/CP coalition came to power on a landslide defeating the UNP and the 1977 election, when JR/UNP came to power on a landslide. Why the shift from one side to the other?

      Because in both cases, the majority perceived that when they were in power they failed.

      This was repeated this time, as the SLPP/SLFP claimed that the UNP Govt had failed and continued the corruption. Furthermore, the antics of Sirisena, added fuel to the discontent.

      The Sinhala Buddhist racism and nationalism was exploited by the SLPP, claiming that they are the saviors. Of course LTTE was always the boogeyman.

      An added boogeyman, was the Muslims, demonstrated by the Wahhabi-Salafi terrorists, with low IQs, and following the Satan, per prescient Hadith of Najd.

      All these factors, was to the advantage of Gotabaya Rajapaksa. The family rule and corruption was secondary, because there is already corruption. This was further aggravated by Ranil W tactics. Ranil W claiming that the will be the PM , probably cost 1 million votes to Sajith.

      Overall approximately 70 percent of Sinhala Buddhists voted for Gotabaya and 10 percent of minorities voted for Gotabaya.

      So, 70×0.7 + 30×0.1 =49 +3 = 52.0 percent.

I pray they the country rallies together to fulfill the many loans that the country will take, together with its risky geo-political agenda. But it can happen because the Masses have confidence in the Gotabaya. Still all is better than the UNP that intended to fulfill their ambitions on country separation and country sale.

The “Rest of the World” knows a lot about murderous, racist Tamil Terrorists and are sick of of false “asylum seekers” who are racists, thugs and drug peddlers.

    They have used all dirty tactics and won. Let’s see for how long they can continue to deceive the masses.
    The same sinhala people who voted for Gota in expectation of miracles will be the first to complain when things go wrong.
    Sooner or later the Buddhist monks will realise their bloody mistake.
    It will be their problem to undo the wrongs.

      First off the Buddhist monks have always taken the right decisions for the country throughout the past. PS: read some history. You clearly got some sort of anger towards the Buddhist community. Get a grip mate. Nothing’s gonna change from your anger. No one asked for miracles from Gota. The Sinhalese tend to believe in Karma over miracles, so wrong again brother. Gota’ s campaign didn’t sling mud. Got a never even mentioned Sajith. So clearly you’re confused and someone immediately should slap some sense into u. The Buddhist monks will be remembered as the pillars of our country’s prosper. 2 lacks of Sri Lankans who were living abroad came to use there vote for Gota. Cause they knew the importance. So there are 69million people who’ll back me up on this. How many u got brother ? I assume the Jaffna Tamils and UNP Muslims only. You poor lad. Go do something worthwhile little boy.

        Yes I have a lot of dislike for many so called Buddhist monks who are hiding behind the saffron robe to do the opposite of what the Buddha taught.
        Most Buddhist monks have turned business men, politicians, and even criminals all in the name of buddhism.
        They are killing the true esense of Buddhism. Do you want me to sit back and be happy?
        Do you understand Buddhism?

In return we promise we will make things much better for you this time around. In order to achieve that goal, we are regretfully announcing that we are shutting down the courts and throwing out all the charges against us – the ruling dynasty of this beloved country for the next 30 years.

    Five Rules of Rajapakshes
    1. If you are Tamil and against them, you are a Tiger.
    2. If you are Muslim and against them, you are an Extremist.
    3. If you are Sinhalese and against them, you are a Traitor/NGO.
    4. If you are a woman and against them, you should be Raped.
    5. If you are a Journalist and against them, you should be Killed.
    Let’s Pray that the Rajapakshes will change their behaviour for good. Let’s Pray that the previous Rajapakshe era will not prevail anymore. Let’s Pray that democracy will prevail.

      The messenger,

      There are more rules.

      Examples, commissions etc, etc.

      Rule 1: Better half of the Jaffna Tamils are still harboring hate and violence towards the Sinhalese in general n’ Rajapakshes to be specific. Rehab doesn’t do much to them, ask any soilder serving in a Jaffna base. So there’s a fair to good chance of any Jaffna Tamil who are against them having little tigers living inside of them.

      Rule 2: There are tons of Muslims supporting Gota. Come to Beruwala and see for your self. So if there are Muslims in the other camp sharing the same ideas as Hisbula who is accused of supporting Islamic extremists, there’s a great chance of them been extremists themselves.

      Rule 3: I’m not sure how you came to this conclusion though. Cause there aren’t substantial evidence to support even a remote version of what you are saying. There are so many Sinhalese who aren’t supporting Gota. No ones labeling them as traitors or NGO’s. There’s no mention of even a politician saying that a UNP man would be a traitor. Get your facts right.

      Rule 4: Okay! Lasantha’s daughter – who went to all the courts in Sri Lanka and lost the case regarding her father over and over. Took the case to the courts of California, USA and got dismissed without a hearing. Who took to SM to bad mouth GOTA just before the elections. Was she even touched ? What world are you living in. You’re describing stuff that could happen during the stone age. No one goes around raping people just case they disagree wit u, anymore !!!

      Rule 5: I’ll go back to Lasantha. He wasn’t murdered. At least not to the courts he wasn’t. So if I’ll have to choose between your tales and the courts decision in deciding if Lasantha was killed, I’ll go with the courts. Again countless journalists were accusing of them 10 years ago and the same set are accusing them now, in good health.

      Now that that’s done. Here’s my rule to u – get a life.

    The New President should get rid of all those undesirables in the party. He should not give nominations to those who are not suitable for the betterment of the country. He should NEVER give nominations to jumping frogs, corrupt thieves, kappam thugs, Drugs & Ethanol dealers, Racist & Fanatic rousers and all the undesirables irrespective of whether they come from prominent families or any other speciality. The National list MPs should be highly qualified and experienced professionals (but not educated fools).

      If there was anything resembling law and order in Sorry Lanka, he would have been behind bars, not running for President!

      Lankan,
      There was no predictions, but expectations went wrong. Sinhalese people are still with Mahinda Family. Mahanayake’swith Mahinda Family. Mahinda’s propaganda was powerful. Sinhalese believed that America is going to capture Srilanka if UNP comes to Power. Sinhalese also believed UNP is going to hand over separate country to Tamils. As long as Tamils and Muslims live in this country, it is a challenge for any political leadership to win Mahinda otherwise they should become hardcore Buddhist Fundamentalists.

      I think these maybe the reasons:
      Let’s say MR’s war winning, and other projects nullified when he lost in 2015 (otherwise people wouldn’t have chased him in 2015):

      This time these might have contributed in the respective order: Failure of coalition govt, Easter Sunday attacks, Sajith’s alliance towards Tamils & Muslims, Sajith being a politician in the failed govt, unrealistic too many campaign promises of Sajith (being part of a failed govt not able to deliver simple WiFi as promised), willing supremacy over others, Gota not being a seasoned politician…

      When Gota promises anything, Sinhalese had the mindset to trust in him since he accomplished a bigger task than his promises. One may argue it is Sarath Fonseka who fought the war, and not Gota. But it is too late to engrave his picture in the minds of some people as the moment someone says “Ltte war” immediately MR & Gota come into their minds.

      I don’t thinks its caste. Probably because of the ISIS attack, people want security above all else. Gota & SF ended the war. Gota cleaned up the streets. He did what he said he would do. That is very rare among our politicians. He has this track record, what do the others have? Nothing.

    If the above story is true, it beg many questions.

    I meet many young men and women. I have always told them “Sky is their Limit within certain limits”. When I meet them next what would I tell them, regarding the whole process of electioneering? There may be one or two aspiring politicians, one or to holding presidential hope.

    Young ones already knew what presidential “job description” is however they need to know the person specification. Please advise me if I need to amend what I have in mind:

    A public racist with indomitable traits of Narcissism.
    A man with an ability to organise mass murders, genocide, pogrom, targeted assassinations, … riots.
    A man the Assgiria aproves of being a fascists.
    ……………
    ……….
    ……….
    …..
    ………
    A foreigner who is protected by USA and Hindia.

    Welcome a new regime that reminds of Ghadafis, Sadams, Suhartos and our own Mahindas etc .

    Its really sad how this extremely divided nation will go from here and here comes the Gota’s Junta regime.

    It is commendable SP has issued this statement and resigned from his Party Post (RW should do the same!).

    In 2005, It is alleged MR bribed the LTTE to prevent voters in the North from exercising their franchise (this was critical in that election, as had that not occurred, RW would have won the election). RW made that allegation in Parliament under parliamentary privileges. If that was true, that is tantamount to sedition. But RW did not challenge that is a court of law. He had a duty and responsibility to do just that but he failed to uphold the sovereignty of the People in 2005 (he was quite happy to be the Leader of the Opposition!)

    In 2019, there is much debate that NGR is in violation of the Constitution of the Republic of SL (due to his citizenship status). Similar to what was done during the 52 day saga when MS / MR violated the Constitution, this notion should be tested in a court of law, where all the facts should be presented to the Judges by both sides so a final determination could be made and this matter could be put to bed, once and for all.

    It is better to institute a case in a court of law (if there is a deemed violation of any laws and / or deemed punishable offense) rather than making statements (as RW did) in Parliament under parliamentary privileges.

    Well done Sajith! Congratulations too Gotabaya!
    Winning and Loosing Elections are expected. People of Srilanka wanted to go back to the previous regime. The election results highlights the country is divided by regions and religions.
    Sajith, even it is a loss in this election you showed great charisma to have some impact on politics. Ranil you have to give up and allow Sajith to strengthen and reform the party. The country need a strong parliament to protect the democratic nature of politics and to challenge any threats to unity of the people.
    Gota, it is a well known truth about your past. The breakdown of law and order and the judiciary and use of criminals and thugs brought down your brothers power. You have got the same group with you and it is a challenge for you to decide which way you wants to follow. God bless Lanka.

    Two of the most senior political parties of Ceylon/Sri Lanka has been shamelessly murdered. The strong foundation it was built has crumbled forever.
    Killer of UNP Belligerent Bond Scam RANIL WICKREMESINGHE
    Killer of SLFP …. XXXXX MAITHRIPAKA SIRISENA
    Sadly Sajith Premadasa is not a wise politician and he knew that UNP hierarchy disliked him but he continued with the party and paid the price.
    We have to salute GR on his victory and hope all races will unite to make this nation a peaceful, progressive, prosperous and proud Sri Lanka.

    The stage is being set for a communal war against muslims. Alot of people simply dont see the big picture. All the sinhala ruling class politicians are working together. Their rivalry is staged to fool the public and it does not take a rocket science brain to see that.
    Since 2010 the attacks on the muslim community began under the Rajapaksa regime. From 2015 the UNP alliance came to power and the attacks on muslims continued. Then we saw the islamic terror attacks which will give the excuse for further violence on muslims with the rajapaksas back in power. It will most likely escalate into a war and genocide by the looks of things. Notice how the BBS and racist buddhist monks are given free reign by all sinhalese governments? That in itself should tell you what the reality is and what is coming.
    India is now ruled by the muslim hatin BJP party, so they will be too happy to help Sri Lanka go after muslims on the island.
    Muslims if left alone will take over Sri Lanka in a few generations and turn it into another indonesia or malaysia. Muslims are rapidly colonizing many ‘infidel’ nations across the world with arab funding. In a country like SL with a racist, envious and paranoid sinhala majority, that creates a perfect setting for a major conflict. As far back as the time of Soma thero in the 1990s, sinhala resentment against muslims was growing. Many of them want to see muslims ‘cut back down to size’. Muslims to this day still think sucking up to sinhalese will protect them. It wont. Those times of benefitting from thoppi perati behaviour has long gone.

      ‘Muslims if left alone will take over Sri Lanka ……. and paranoid sinhala majority’

      You don’t see that you are contradicting yourself? The Sinhala majority are justified in being concerned.

    Congratulation to Sinhalese Buddhist Fascism and Goat racism. Tamils and Muslims remaining in the island please get ready for your fourth rate status. Sajith you have provedn to be the better , what beautiful statement . Very gracious. A real statesman. What a pity these goats did not vote for you. Your spoken English is very good ( heard/saw you on the Australian SBS TV yesterday). The goat was only bleating , whilst you spoke very well I hope the goat listens to what you stated about not taking revenge but most probably will never, as he was voted in to take revenge on the Tamils and Muslims.

      Siva,
      You are the biggest racisist nut job I have ever seen.
      Hope the poor Tamils and Muslims in Sri Lanka will
      discard this false notion that UNF will take care of them.
      and work together with the Podu jana peramuna. for the betterment of war affected areas. Destroyed by the bloody LTTE.
