Sirisena Asked To Make Mahinda A ‘Lee Kuan Yew’, Chandrika Opposed

According to sources close to President Maithripala Sirisena‘s camp, a secret opinion poll carried out regarding the upcoming General Elections has indicated that the United National Party is poised to win it, with the Mahinda Rajapaksa ‘SLFP Snubs’ group coming second and followed by the Sirisena led coalition third.

Maithripala MahindaIn order to prevent this from happening, a high profile team of advisors to President Maithripala Sirisena has proposed a three fold package to deliver a different outcomes from that predicted in the poll.

The three fold package is as follows:

1. To offer former President Mahinda Rajapaksa a high status Eminent Person’s role similar to that enjoyed by the late first Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew of Singapore and former US President Bill Clinton.

2. To appoint MP Namal Rajapaksa as one of the Deputy Presidents of the SLFP.

3. To withdraw all charges against the Rajapaksas and gradually drop them altogether.

However according to sources close to the former President Chandrika Kumaratunga‘s camp, she was not happy with this arrangement. Her supporters are said to be planning to perform bodhi poojas island-wide over a period of ten day to commemorate her 70th birthday which falls on the 29th of June. She was born in 1945.

    Has Maithripala Sirisena gone totally bongos to propose “The three fold package”?

    Lee Kuan Yew would turn in his grave.

    Is Maithiri Chandrika’s man in SLFP or MR’s man in the government/UNP?

      Native,

      I sympathize with MY3. He is stuck between a rock and a hard place. I wish him wisdom and strength required to navigate these shark infested, choppy waters.

      However, agree with you as well. To compare Singapore’s strong man Lee with the rejected, uneducated, uncivilized, criminal & corrupt dictator from Hambantota is a terrible idea.

      Lee united Singapore’s many ethnic groups and built a great, prosperous nation out of nothing. What a legacy!

      Rejected dictator from SL is banking on beating racist, religious drums of fear to find a backdoor to power again. Apart from the large scale looting of this nation he oversaw during his rule.

      What a comparison! Cheers!

      PS: Namal as a Deputy President of rotten SLFP? Good one! Despite being a nightmare. Namal can sit next to Karuna Amman etc. Somebody please explain why on earth do millions of dumb Sri Lankans vote for a corrupt political party such as the SLFP, run by criminals and killers. UNP is not really any better.

        Ben Hurling, it is either UNP or SLFP, is there a choice ?
        We are aware that the Sri Lankans are are a dumb lot. They will vote and then shout “thief…..thief….” after voting for the thieves. There are parents who are grooming their girls to go out with politicians or their offsprings. And ours is a Sinhala Buddhist country.

        Check their IQs. The answer is there.

        Average Sri Lankan IQ = 79 ( IQ of Average Ph D, in Physics 130)

        Singapore Average IQ =108

        Average IQ of Sri Lankan Modayas, Mootals and Fools = 65

      The moment advisers were appointed, I knew that President Sirisena had gone bonkers.SLFP has today some characters who should be either in the prison or in the asylum.One character had shot to death a man who came to demand the return of monies given as a loan.The other character attempted to set fire to a petrol station just because that petrol station had supplied petrol to a UNP candiddate.There are others of doubtful past -cattle thieves ( now we have jewellery thieves)

    Any move towards appeasing the Rajapaksa faction would be detrimental to the Sirisena camp. CBK got the the January coup executed perfectly. There is no reason for her to fidget now. This is the time for her to make the next move. Should she hesitate now, her family legacy would be wiped out for ever.

        Well said Rabok. CBK had her opportunity & made her money. Instead of enjoying her retirement, living in luxury in St. John’s Wood & her summer palace in SL, she still can’t give up the hunger for power & wants to be the king maker or probably wants the Bandaranayake dynasty to continue with her son.

        Rabok, both the UNP and the SLFP may be political parties but they were formed by two individuals, ie they paid to establish the parties. The UNP was formed by the Hewawitharana family and the SLFP by the Bandaranika’s.CBK messed up, but MR had no decency to treat her the way she was treated.It is her family legacy.

    President Srisena should not be bothered about the SLFP Snubs or listen to the advise of theso called high profile advisors. It is a suicidal proposal if Srisena accepts that proposals. Former President Rajapakse cannot be compared with the late President Lee Kuan Yew of Singapore or former US President Bill Clinton. They were not greedy like Mahinda or they are not corrupted like Mahinda. Mahinda has a blood on his hand and he is behind the murder of many including Lasantha. His brothers are criminals and they have been accused of war crimes, crimes against humanity, responsible for 75% of the corruption. Maithiri was elected by people to get rid of his authoritarian and unlawful activities. People are aware of who these SLFP Snubs are and they will never give any chance to come back power. Maithiri has a duty to save the country and Buddhism from those criminals.

      “Mahinda has a blood on his hand and he is behind the murder of many including Lasanth”
      You seem to be holding very valuable information information. Now that there is no fear of any Rajapaksha reprisal plese let the authorities know all you know about these murders. I understand there is an investigation already under way over Lasantha murder and you are morally duty bound to divulge all.

    This is an insult to Lee Kuan Yew – to compare Mahinda R with him.

    Karuna is already a vice president of SLFP – Namal being ‘elevated’ to Karuna’s level is hilarious.

    All charges against the Rajapakses must be inquired into, to the fullest extent.

      ‘This an insult to Lee Kuan Yew-to compare Mahinda R….’

    if the UNP does not get an absolute majority with other parties aligned with it the Sirisena faction will very likely join with the Rajapaksa faction just to gain power.

    The easiest solution would be to eliminate Rajapaksa physically using one of his many enemies.

      Mangala became silent when the UNP found that the President Sirisena was dilly dallying re Mahinda Rajapakse.

      Mangala promised to appoint a group to inquire into the atrocities committed during the war both by the LTTe and the Govt.That committee should have been appointed by the end of June.That did not happen. Now the fun will start in Geneva. Imagine a father figure being prosecuted in Geneva.Will Sirisena repeat what the present leader of Yugoslavia did? He cannot avoid that act, the foolish MPs of the UPFA brought down our economy by sabotaging the finance bills.Our economy is in shatters Thanks to the UPFA jokers Wimal, Dinesh, Vasu Mahindananda. So the screws can be applied on Sri Lanka with sanctions ( overt or covert) and then the Rajapakses will go to Geneva. Fancy situation is it not.

    Wonder where the Madam is going to do all these 10 Bodi Pujas,?.

    It will be hard for her to get into the Temples in rural areas of the country where most of the Mahinda UPFA Members will come from.

    All 10 in Podihamuruwas Elite Temple wouldn’t nullify the effect of thousands which our Dalits have already held for Mahinda Rajapaksa.

    Praying for Buddha and Sanga to give Mahinda the strength to protect them from the evil deeds of cousin Ranil’s FCID. .

    And the evil deed of Samare to organize War Crime trials with the Diaspora to punish our brave Soldiers.

    president sirisena should be wary of those who propose such things to him.He should remember troy and the trojan horse that brought it down.

    Bringing down the rajapakshes has stage 1,stage 2 and stage 3.

    Stage 1 has been completed.Stage 2 will be completed when he does not become the prime minister at the coming general elections.Stage 3 will be completed when he is no longer a MP in the next general election in 2020.After 2020 no more rajapakshes.Until then patience is a virtue.

    If sirisena is leaving the presidency,he should abolish it first so that he is the last president of srilanka.No room for anyone else.

    If the rajapkshes have to be annihilated then the ranil/sirisena faction SLFP has to govern well for the next 5 years and turn around srilanka fortunes as what happenned in 1977 with the advent of the open economy.They have to work hard and efficiently to make this country a middle income country by 2020.There is no other way to keep the rajapakshe out after 2020.The fact that sirisena’s faction of the SLFP is less than the rajapakshes faction of the SLFP is immaterial because if the coalition government of UNP and sirisena’s SLFP do well in the next 5 years then sirisena’s faction of the SLFP will beat the rajapakshes faction of the SLFP in 2020.So govern wisely chaps.

    The high Profile Advisers have in a way insulted LKY. Good that MS agreed with CBK.
    SL & Malaysia have lot in common since the independence of both countries from the British. Particularly the concept of whole country belongs to the boomi puthras based on race, language and religion.. Further the high profile advisers failed to read the history to understand the how Singapore came about without any war and loss of lives.

    Most important aspect of Singapore’s success is the calibres of the founding leaders of Singapore led by LKY. From 2005 to 2015 MR had the oppotunity to prove himself to be a statesman and world class leader. He miserably failed.

    Read this enlightening comment from former law minister of Malaysia a Malay himself on the difference between Malaysia in Singapore and Malaysia : ” Singaporean Malays, although a minority are also not marginalised. Many of them are happy with the SG and it would be silly for the PAP to even think of discriminating against Malays and risk forfeiting 15 percent of the vote.
    THE DIFFERENCE IS THIS – The Singaporean Malays reap the benefits of the modern advanced economy that is Singapore and are encouraged by political leaders to develop themselves. In Malaysia, Malays are happy to let their leaders make all the money as long as they “promise to depend ” BASHA , BANGSA & AGAMA (language, race and religion ). I can’t wait for Malays here to be like Singaporean Malays ” – Zaid Ibrahim a former law minister.

      “This leak proves two things. Sirisena’s lack of a backbone and real honesty, and Chandricar’s never ending vengeance.”

      Is Maithiri offering a long enough rope for MR to commit political suicide by hanging?

      Since CT readers are not privy to machination/back room deals between MS/CBK/RW and MR, it is unclear whether MR would use the rope to come out of his pit or hang himself.

      However MS/CBK/RW are aware of the pitfalls of pushing MR into a corner as there are millions of smart ass patriots willing to create more conflict than the country could handle.

      MS/CBK/RW groupies also enjoy some advantage; Dayan,Vasu, Wimal, HLD Mahinda, Dhinesh, …………… are on Mahinda’s side.

      When MR has these supporters he does not need enemies.

    First and foremost SLFP should sack CBK from once and for all.
    That is the an immediate one and only solution to SLFP?
    Time being.
    MS and CBK are roots cause of divided and split of SLFP’s rank and file of party their members.

    By Party rule of Banadarake family of Feudalism nature and arrogant family nepotism of high hand power of their management of rule and that they destroy & ruin the SLFP- party mass base.

    Mahiniand Rajapakasa who has been regain and revitalized SLFP since 2005 ,not that Mathripalla Sirisena or CBK or any one else.

    MR has unfinished task to be completed, we all Sri Lankan give him another term to accomplishes that task undertaken by him.

    Ours politics of democracy and social development is one of the complex process ,that in terms of class struggle has not rising into the higher level of norms of Capitalism.

    We are in stage of just take off from old colonial path of depend system turn into Independent path of sustainability capital venture. This new reality and simple fact do not realized by Anarchist of JVP, Separatists of TNA LTTE & GTF WTC, Tamil Diasporas and bunch Tamil-Sinhalese Trotskyist elites in an Island various masks.

    That is historical tragedy of result of LSSP-Trotskyists political of Sri Lankan last 80 odd years.

    SLFP is party of democracy of national bourgeoisie not fully allied with Western Imperialism. Certain anarchist elements did not witness that role play by MR leadership of SLFP since 2005.

    We as country that long way to go for ours nation building of Capitalist path of sustainability.

    That is challenge of politics of democracy of Good Governances and Rule of Economic Development. I firmly convince that MS has no brain power or quality of leadership to undertake an accomplished such a huge task and challenge by ours people in future.

    and they like to read something valuable and not craps like this.People
    will know that it will be a total submission by the Govt.if they gave
    into such idiotic proposals, which could rouse the people and such proposals will not come the govt.
    Mahathma Ghandi, Nelson Mandela and Lee Kuan Yew are immortals who will
    be remembered for decades to come for their valuable services done to the people of their country and cannot be compared with ordinary
    politicians.We never had politicians of the calibre of the above so far

    This “high profile team of advisors” must be out of their collective minds to suggest that the President do the following: 1 – give MR a “high status, eminent person’s role” similar to Lee Kwan Yew and Bill Clinton, (neither of who had criminal charges hanging over their heads) 2 – Appoint Namal as a deputy president (these guys must be having a collective warped sense of humor) and 3 – Drop all criminal charges against the Rajapakses (another cruel joke?).

    The names of these jokers must be revealed so they could be treated with the disdain that they deserve and hopefully Maithripala will not take these idiots seriously.

    The best thing he could do would be to kick these jokers out immediately.

    In a democracy trying to defuse a potential threat to progress by consensus is not abnormal or unjust by any political party. Maithri is a person of the highest integrity and will consider any proposals to deter the MR regime coming back to power with their corrupt bunch of cohorts. It will be a disaster for the country to permit corruption and thuggery to take over governance again. We can walk in peace on the roads thinking that the police will act to prevent wrong doings and will prosecute any offenders. Our legal frame work will be safe so that the independence of the Judicery will be harnessed and improved. The unity among races and communities will begin to heal and get harmonised. Our goal of a peaceful and a united country can be only archived by the return of a Mahithri supporting government and and not a power thirsty MR. If Mahithri supporting faction is returned we can all repair the damaged economy which is about to break down by irresponsible spending above our means for the last fifteen years.

    MS is poor man who cannot do anything to our country. He rule and run state of affairs according to advice by UNP-Wickamasinghe and CBK.

    Now we are looking for nation leader like MR.
    MR has proven track record of politics of Democracy since 2005.

    I hope MS is not out of his mind to give ANY prominence to the loser..Jarapassa…who called MS names during the elections and MS himself had said that…had MR won, MS would have been 6 feet under along with his family..SO why is MS scared of ANYTHING when it comes to MR who is Irrelavent…MS is firmly perched on the saddle and wont go anywhere for the next 5 years…IF MS gives MR prominence, Namal the prince would be eying the saddle..

    MS should be neutral and appoint the PM who wins and not side with the SLFP….or else he would lose all respect he has from the 6.2 million voters who made him win…
