Sirasa TV Uses Dayan J To Slam Karu J

Dr. Dayan Jayatillake, former Ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva and to France called Karu Jayasuriya, the leader of the Leadership Council of the UNP nothing but a stenographer to Party Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe.

Dr. Dayan

Appearing on Sirasa TV’s nightly news broadcast, widely acknowledged to be spearheading a campaign on behalf of disgruntled UNP MP Sajith Premadasa, the former politically appointed Ambassador said that there is no one within the recently constituted Leadership Council who can appeal to the rural masses. With reference to Karu Jayasuriya he said “when one watches the meetings of the party decision making body these days one can see clearly what is happening. Mr. Wickeremesinghe sits by himself at the head of the table. On his right or left sits Mr. Karu Jayasuriya, the Chairman of the Leadership Council as if he was a private secretary or a stenographer.”

“This is purely decorative body,” Jayatillake said of the Leadership Council.

“The UNP is unelectable so long as it does not change its leadership, honestly and credibly,” he said.

“Mr. Jayasuriya should have either stayed in the Party and fought to create a patriotic, national leadership in the UNP, or if he crossed over as he says to help in the war effot, he should have stayed until the war was won,” the former Ambassador said.

In his nightly news ‘editorial’ he said the UNP’s 20 years in opposition was a record in democracy. “It must realise there is no way in which it can stop the hemorrhaging of votes without a complete change of the Party’s leadership,” Jayatilleke said.

Jayatillake noted that terms such as “media terrorists” and “media terrorism” are terms that government propagandists have been using for years and that it is disturbing that some opposition members have used such phrases against privately owned and therefore independent media.

Referring to UNP MP and former Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera who recently filed legal action against Sirasa Network Chairman R. Rajamahendran (aka Kili Maharaja), Jayatillake said his deployment of people with sticks and stones has done damage to the UNP and has impacted negatively on the party’s ability to run an effective election campaign in the Southern Province.

Jayatillake makes no reference to the wielding of a loaded gun by leading UNP rebel Maithri Guneratne’s father Herman Guneratne which he fired at protestors in full view of television cameras.

Jayatillake, a non career diplomat was appointed by President Mahinda Rajapaksa as Sri Lanka’s ambassador to the UN in Geneva in 2007. He was recalled in 2009 and a year later appointed as Sri Lanka’s ambassador to France. Jayatillake served for two years in the latter posting. He claims he did not request for an extension as customary after two years.

    Sirasa using Dayan to attack the Bodhisathwa Karu!On the other hand double madam Dharshika,double sir Malinda attacking Sajith.God knows for what!Whatever it is i am enjoying this travelling circus.Not many moons ago Karu was conniving with Sajith to ouster Ranil.This not the first time that Bodhisathwa Karu tried his back stabbing trick on Ranil.Now Bodhisathwa finds that Sajith is a bad guy.Karu performed his usual back stabbing trick on Sajith and now find himself stranded in no man’s land.Of course the Bodhisathwa Karu tried his back stabbing trick on poor Fonny.When will this guy ever learn.The whole problem with this Bodhisathwa is that some astrologer had predicted that he will be the king of Srilanka.But little he realize that he has no friends other than the paid so called journalists in the caliber of double madam Dharshika,double sir Malinda and the Johnny come lately Rasika Jayakody.Who said that there is a sucker born every minute?Dharshika,Malinda,Rasika enjoy yourselves.The more you attack Sajith the more Xmas shopping you can do.Ha ha ha a sucker is born every minute.My goodness Ranil must be enjoying every minute.The chairman of the leadership council,the Bodhisathwa Karu alias two in one Judas/Brutus.Last time out our Sudu Redi hora Karu lost to Paba.Next time the people of Gampaha will kick this joker in to retirement.No doubt that Ranil is having the last laugh!”Eya 17k ekka anduwata giya,thaniyen awa”!”Rajitha Dayasirila okkoma anduwata yewwa”.”Sajithwath yawanna full try”.Pissek!

      Dayan is very correct, if UNP needs to be in govt’ (i think they were in opposition for 20 long years ?? am I correct??) then only Sajith can do it or nobody.Because others are political jokers, donkeys & monkeys only.

        Dayan is a mediocre Sinhala intellectual who [Edited out]. Now he is one of the 27 so-called top Sinhala brains working on ways to thwart UNHRC meeting in Geneva 2014.

        He has to change his Mahavamsa mind set before he can pick true leaders to govern. He needs a lesson from Sharmini Serasinghe .

        Dayan is right there because then only Dayan can get posted to a new place again. MR would not appoint him again for considering all the incosistencies made by him since 2009.
        Dayan has proved us all that he is bearing the typical chamelionic character. We dont need any better example to learn that.
        This time perhaps, MR has to decide it whom to be sent to Geneva next. Thamara K stays silent and she has not lost any credibility since she is no longer a big voice, but Dayan does.
        Dayan has to display himself in many ways.
        Give us please one single Example where Premadasa Junior performed well.
        He is neither educated enough nor has he enough exp as RW has.
        RW´s defeat cannot be pronounced as his all defeats because many of the leaders in UNP were killed or got died through the last 20 years. That is the factual reason for UNP to stay in Opposition that long. And current undemocratic rule was established by them to a manner that the average could NOT exchange their views easily. SItuation has become to the levels that we experienced it in late 80ties now.

          Dayan Jayathilaka is a threat to lanken soverenity; Right at the very critical juncture of lanken politics, him to add this kind of biased analysis is not what the people expected from him. His greater intentions is now trying to divide the UNP. I dont think people have any respect to this creature. Who is he to analyse the lanken politics. This crab should see in mirror before trying to make this kind of critics about the UNP. Recalling the UNP´s days in which they were in power for 17 years, SLFP was also repeatedly in the opposition. This man´s tactics to say that UNP´s defeats are all because of the leadership of RW is fully absurd. People are aware, that Lalith Athu, Gamni Dissa, Ranaja W and MANY others that were the backborne of the party were killed by terrorists in the last two decades. Latter was not the case with SLFP.

    Dayan j has nothing to do other than criticising the unp and receives one hundred 15 thousand each program.
    it is very hard to understand that why Dayan does not talk about drugs, corruptions, casinos cost of livings in the country. why he does not talk about EPF and so many other things . There are so many people struggling to have at least one meal a day. Milk powder price has gone up.
    Why Dayan j does not talk about Tiran Alles. who had paid almost 800million to ltte. Dayan j should talk about media freedom.

    Dayan j knows very well that he wont be able to manipulate Ranil.
    Ranil knows that Dayan is a opportunistic man and a trouble maker and who has 2 tongues. He does not want to listen to others and he wants to play his own games.
    That was the main reason he was kicked out from Geneva by president of sri lanka.

    There is no place for Dayan J within the unp.

        Dayan is there where he can make his personal gains. His wife[Edited out]. How can he be the analyst if he considers the current regime is the most appropriate one to restore peace to the country. Not long ago, exactly a few days ago CHOGM started, he came with a tv program asking govt to work more with ICs rather than attacking them. There his stance was very different. But now again, weeks later after the CHOGM sessions were completed (succesffuly or not unsuccessfully is an another question), has the bugger dared to drop a word on the CHOGEM.. no ? Why is that self proclaimed senior man failed to do so ?
        Why is he picking words to attack RW only while harmonising most known criminals again and again. Why he wants Sajith P to lead the nation not knowing how he would end up ? What is the difference between MR thugs and Sajith P ? Do they both have shown the smidgeon of the democratic values of the life. Sajith knowing to have no sufficient knowledge to lead the nation – to appoint him as the leader of UNP is not like – giving the sword to an another wrong soldier ?

    This bugger Dyan believes that he salvaged Sri Lanka in 2009 at the UN Sessions. The truth is after the Americans and the Indians double crossed VP and got MR to massacre the lot including VP, they did not want any probe on Sri Lanka, lest their involvement would have got exposed. So by prior arrangement the Americans prevented a probe on Sri Lanka after the staged War, thus giving credit to this bugger to boast of his Diplomatic talent which is furthest from the truth. Thereafter he believes he is a great Diplomat who saved Sri Lanka from a possible International Investigation. The Americans thereafter, three years later to erase the doubts of their involvement, brought a watered down Resolution against Sri Lanka, after much hue and cry, flexing their muscles just to hype the public that they were very serious about War Crimes and what an anti-climax it was for those expecting Justice. Here again with prior arrangement as to who should vote for and against the Resolution at the UN, all pre-arranged. If by now the people have not realised that all these institutions as the UN, the Commonwealth are taking us all for a ride at the dictates of their Political Masters, with this kind of Political Jockeys as Dayan foisted as great Diplomats, only God can help this Nation.

    Dayan,

    What bigotry – you taking to task any one else on the basis of moral values, ethics, honesty, credibility, and of being hypocrites?!

    If you poll the readers who read your blogs, or even make a simple count of responses to articles of all authors in CT, you will find that you overwhelmingly get the most vote as the worst violator of every one of those criteria.

    How moral were you when you shut all truth seeking with “we don’t care a damn” slogan?

    What a hypocrite you were when you offered lip-service championing “impartial investigation is a moral necessity” at a local press conference with internationals in attention, having previously proclaimed “we have demonstrably established just means”, asserting no war crimes were committed.

    How ethical were you in describing the protest against apartheid as “rooted in aspirations of majoritarian rule?” thus fanning the chauvinistic flames?

    How credible are you when even the President declares that you would prostitute your education and talents for a bag of foreign coins, and you weasel away rather than provide a rational counter, if there is any?

    How honest were you when you decided to shed crocodile tears at Weliveraya, just because you thought it gave you an opportunity to goad the president towards achieving your selfish-goals?

    Kili Maharajah is anti-Ranil Wickremesinghe. According to political gossip, Killi wanted Ranil to place Kili’s mistress on the UNP National List in the general election held some years ago. Ranil, for all his shortcomings, being a principled politician, refused. Ever since then Kili has had a knife into Ranil and has used both Sirasa TV and MTV( under the control of Maharajha TV) to undermine Ranil. And the beneficiary of this subterfuge is that twerp Sajith Premadasa. The Maharajah Organization had undue influence during Ranasinghe Premadasa years via R.Paskeralingam, the Secretary to the Treasury, during the R. Premadasa presidency. It was Paskeralingam who went to South India to consult Sathya Sai Baba on a weekly basis on Premadasa’s behalf. And that old loyalty to R.Premadasa for services rendered, makes Kili to now champion the cause of Sajith Premadasa to the detriment of the UNP and its current leader Ranil Wickremesinghe. This is an aspect of the Byzantine politics of Sri Lanka which is so commonplace in all of South Asia. Dayan Jayatilleke used to be a stooge of R. Premadasa. Dayan being who he is, managed to worm his way into the power centre via Bradman Weerakoon and Tisaranee Gunesekera of old. It is he who in combination with H.L.D. Mahindapala( another stooge of Premadasa who was then editor of the Sunday Observer) authored the weekly column in the Sunday Observer under the pseudonym of Anuruddha Tilakasiri attacking anyone who opposed Premadasa. Dayan Jayatilleke, in true style of a political prostitute, today serves the Rajapaksa administration. So Kili Maharajah has found in Dayan Jayetilleke a useful tool to attack Ranil Wickremesinghe and promote his former patron’s son Sajith Premadasa. This way Dayan Jayetilleke will ensure that should there be a change of administration and should the successor administration be led by Sajith Premadasa, he has a chance of being a power behind the throne.

    Dayan J & MTV/MBC have experienced unforgettable and unsavory past incidents. Dayan was manhandled by the late RP’s mobs and MTV/MBC property was subject to arson on many occasions by State mobs. Hence they have no choice but to ‘play safe’ and survive.

    Rajapakse’s biggest headache is the UNP. That is the only political check to him left after the 18th Amendment. He has a team of persons in different fields set up to create UNP implosion. Sajith is one. Dayan J is another. Sirasa is another.
    Why is Dayan worried about the UNP? He is not a member? This ‘political analyst’ ignores all serious national issues to focus on Ranil.

      LB,

      This is democracy at play. There needs to be a strong UNP. But RW has demonstrated time and time again that he cannot make UNP stronger. He should have stepped aside long time ago.

    I strongly believe that Ranil is much better than Sajith who is nothing else but an empty vessel.
    If the Opposition really wants to defeat this government it has to find a common candidate immediately as neither Ranil nor Sajith nor Karu nor Fonseka is capable of defeating the present regime.
    If the Opposition wants to win at the next elections it has not only to find a charismatic and people -friendly common candidate but also present a common programme that will restore democracy, freedom and rule of law and guarantee justice for the citizens through a new constitution within one year.
    I believe Chandrika is the best bet.if she is willing she has to come to the field immediately and tell the people how she is going to solve problems.

      After reading your comments, I myself happened to listen what Dr. Harsha pointed out to the parliament in the debate of budget 2014. There his facts and figures proved that CBK´s second term controlled the budget to its best.
      I now believe, it was the lanken state media deliberatetly attacked her spreading all wrong views. To this date, all these have revealed. See… how can someone go against facts and figures. Dr. Harsha Silva ´s arguments are the best.

    I think best would be Sobitha Thero, but CBK, UNP and all opposition should support him. He has no families to go on nephatism, neither is he married to run family politics. His views focusing on abolishing EP and being a senior in lanken society, he can lead the nation to progress no doubt about that.

    Siri !
    I don’t think SLFP members will vote for Rev. Sobhita Thera however good he is.He has already said he would not be the common candidate.The common candidate should convince the electorate that she/he would form a provisional national government and abolish the presidential system and proportional electoral system,and restore democracy, rule of law, freedom, justice through a new constitution within one year and go home.

    His intellect is always available for long

    after the contract expires. Andaya junior is

    This I cant understand.
    Some time ago, Sirasa was attacked by ruling goons. This is no secret to anyone.
    As a PVT channel, what caused them to work on biased agendas whatever threats they may exercise on them. But DJ to add this kind of biased comments just on the very same channel, that reacted without being biased to work in this way is not even thinkable.
    What happened in the course of the years ?
    Ranajan Ramanayake explains all these on Boston TV. Right at the moment, there seem to be have only a very few that can express unbiased news in SL.

    The situation is much more dangerous than it appears to be.

    How many of us in lanken population bear the view that DJ ´s opinions should be taken into consideration whatever being planned for the healthy future of the country ?
    Why is that the self conceited arrogant creature repeatedly feels that he has to add his sentiments in terms of finding solutions based on lanken peace efforts ? If one would compare archives of his articles added to various platforms sofar – I ll bet you – we ll find all inconsistencies that the chamelionic professional has brought before us – so how can we keep the faith on him ? This time on Premadasa junior, next time on MR regime, why has he been changing his colours time to time ? Is that the affinity to the perks got offered to him, power greediness, or a mixture of these both ?
