Sirisena Meets Ranil: Hastily Arranged Meeting To Placate India

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe today met President Maithripala Sirisena, a day after his return from New Delhi.

The meeting took place at the Presidential Secretariat and the sources close to the President said the Prime Minister briefed him on the progress of the official visit.

However, at the bilateral meeting with the Sri Lankan delegation, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi made no secret of his displeasure over the slow progress of the Indian-funded projects in Sri Lanka.

The slow progress of the projects has been attributed to the resistance stemming from President Sirisena and the SLFP. Modi’s remarks, therefore, was a veiled attack on Sirisena who, at the last Cabinet meeting, vehemently opposed the Colombo Port East Terminal development project being given to India.

Modi, according to a statement issued by the Prime Minister’s Office, had urged the Sri Lankan government to discuss directly with him, if it had any doubts about the intentions of the Indian government or its leaders.

Sources familiar with the matter said the meeting between the President and the Prime Minister today was aimed at expediting the Indian-funded projects in the country.

“It is a sign that the President is alarmed by the strong sentiments expressed by the Indian Prime Minister. He is now trying to placate India by pretending to work with the Prime Minister on the Indian funded projects,” they added.

      That is India’s frustration. India is not alone.

      What abut the frustration of the 6.2 million who voted you in to be the President and get the crooks and killers to justice, and you have turned out to be a Traitor, Sevalaya, Mala-Perethaya and Patholaya?

      I think President Sirisena fallen into the trap of Mahinda. I think Mahinda would have advised Sirisena if you want to become next President you have to follow his tactics such as anti Indian, anti-Tamil and anti-Muslim propaganda.

      Probably president has a spine but not flexible enough to contain spineless RW who is acting on Modi’s spine.

      It’s wise for president to let Modi know that the mandate given in 2015 is invalid now & want a fresh mandate to continue what India want SL to do & thus avoid this Indian menace.
      Modi must know he’s PM for India only.

    I don’t think the President is “alarmed.” There is no threat to his position at all.
    It is Ranil’s position which is at stake as he is subject to mounting public anger over his decision to sell all national assets to foreigners one by one.
    I believe that the President will stand by his position to not to sell the Eastern Container Terminal to India and lose the most important, economically most viable ONLY PORT in Sri Lanka at the moment.
    If the news is correct, the Indian PM had told Ranil to finalize all Indian funded projects before “his (Ranil’s) election” in 2020.
    In other words, the Indian PM has given an ultimatum to Ranil; “do as I say, otherwise you will lose the election.”
    Clearly India is aware that they can have their way only threatening Ranil to fulfill his pledges given to India in exchange of Mahinda’s unseating in 2015.
    And India is fully aware that if they are not quick there is no way to acquire India’s carefully selected national assets in Sri Lanka, i.e. Sri Lanka’s main port- Colombo port, regional ports, second airport, regional airports, oil tanks and local industries, oh and joint naval exercise in the Northern sea to pave the way for Indian fishermen to invade Sri Lanka’s sea without trouble. Man, the list is alarming, isn’t it?

      Both Ranil and Maithri walked into India’s trap in 2015 for power in Sri Lanka.
      Maithri is trying to escape now, as, I believe, he was nowhere in the “talks.”
      However, India doesn’t let Ranil go until they get what he promised. The major promise was ETCA covering all India’s interests. It is not even signed as yet. However, India is getting everything Ranil promised in installments to minimize public outrage.
      India has tied a cyanide capsule around Ranil’s neck in 2015. Do or die. !!!!!! What is Ranil’s option? I think “he should die (politically).”

          ETCA is the new name for CEPA with add-ons which was rejected by Mahinda’s administration as it is detrimental to all economic, social and political sectors.
          For your information, the country was talking against ETCA since late 2015. There were massive protests against ETCA then. As a result the slave government abandoned it. I have written rigmaroles to LCN including a request to the President to take over ETCA matter and shove it under the carpet for at least 2 years as other countries such as ROK signed ETCA with India after intensely discussing it for 7 years. Canada’s negotiations are still on-going even after 8 or 9 years.
          Go back to 2015 archives in mainstream newspapers and LCN.
          Now it has come to the surface again as Ranil said he is signing ETCA this December prepared by India. His office too will enlighten you.

        1. Eighty percent (80%) of the Eastern Container Terminal to India meaning handing over 80% of a massive profit to India to fulfill a personal election pledge given to India by Ranil. One day we will have to pay for India to use “our” terminal. Is it sensible and in the best interest of Sri Lanka in your opinion?
        You may list the rest.

    Sirisena is a real mean humbug, now the world and the country know this well and clearly. He, with his no good God for shaken clique are the biggest obstacle for the progress of the nation. They are a double headed snakes, they say one and do something else. Not at all trustworthy and ruining the country for good. At least they should look at how other successful nations are doing and try to learn from them instead of trying to be big shots and spoiling everything.

    In short President Sirisena is a disappointment to most of his supporters. The Tamils are disillusioned over his loss of interest in the constitutional process. They are alarmed at his repeated statements that he is opposed to foreign investigation into crimes committed by the army during the last phase of the war. He claims he was in charge of war operations during the last phase of the war, and if this is correct, he must answer the question who killed the hundreds of LTTE cadres who surrendered to the army at Mullivakal and other places around Mazy 17/18 2009?. He must tell the public who gave orders to shoot Balachandran, aged 11, son of Prabhakaran? There were photographic pictures showing him munching some snacks leisurely inside a bunker and later his bullet-ridden body lying on the ground! Is this is the reason he is opposing foreign investigation?

      There is nothing to “develop” in the Eastern Container Terminal. The Sri Lanka Ports Authority started building/developing it in 2013 out of their OWN FUNDS. In 2015 the slave government stalled the work and then recommenced. Ranil is trying to allocate 80% of the cargo handling of the Eastern Terminal to India (as The Hindu reported) for no reason (or sorry for a handsome commission. What else?) How could this be a “joint project” other than a sale agreement giving away the only, fully state owned container terminal to foreigners?

        Through the past 40+ years our govts, both parties, sold our national assets to local parasites and foreigners. What did the local parasites, they sold most of them brick by brick and now claims to be big businessmen?

        I may be wrong but I think there is a terminal/berth (or whatever the term is) in the Colombo port given to the Chinese on a 35 year lease.

          I have written about it elsewhere.
          In 2009 China came forward to invest in the Colombo port to convert it to a lucrative transshipment hub which saw a massive modern infrastructure and deep water terminals making Colombo Port the only port in the South Asia Region which has deep water terminals for massive vessels.
          China received 85% of the Southern Terminal for their investment (now I understand for 35 years which is still good as it was NOT a sale agreement for 99×2 years). We cannot blame them as China was the only country which invested in the war ravaged Sri Lanka at the time.
          Today, Colombo port is one of the busiest ports in the world drawing us a massive profit. There is no reason for Ranil to give 80% of the stated owned Eastern Terminal to India along with 80% of the profit when Sri Lanka is fully capable of handling its operations.

            “now I understand for 35 years which is still good as it was NOT a sale agreement for 99×2 years”
            99 years is a LEASE not a sale. It was MR who tried to sell the port to the Chinese .Where were you then?
            The agreement has still not been written but you are jabbering about imaginary details.
            80 % of the traffic comes from India, so why not let them manage it?

            Do you know the rationale/reasons for this put forth by Ranil?

            I don’t know the underlying reasons for this ……… or even what terminals/infrastructure Colombo Port consists of ………. but anything operating at a profit should not be handed over to outsiders. If Ranil is doing this just to placate (counter balance) the Indians for the presence of the Chinese and their projects, it’s a damn shame. I’m as suspicious of the Indians as much as of the Chinese. Indians and the Chinese are doing what’s good for them and rightly so; it’s the duty of our leaders to look after our interests.

      Srinath,
      You are spot on. Most of the state owned enterprises are not national assets but liabilities. They have become employment agencies for politicians acolytes and easy pray for plundering national assets. So called socialism ushered in after the Bolshevik revolution was buried by Gorbachev. SLFP and the old left parties CP, LSSP,MEP, NLLSP
      facing extinction who cannot win a seat on their own are clinging on to socialist policies where all other countries have given up and embraced private sector lead grouth.

    Ranil is a different guy. He is extremely cunning for anybody to asses him. 99% chance that he met New King to tell all about PM Modi’s anger and save New King from that wrath. Ranil is the person single handedly responsible for the last four years of delay in ETCA. Then what kind of promise he gave to Modi on ETCA? They Ranil & New King are pretending to be acting together only to fool PM Modi. It will be hard for him to dodge Ranil’s or Old or New Kings’ traps.

    People may remember New King meeting Old King twice right after his New York trip. They spread a story that they two were planning to unseat Ranil, but there is no truth in that statement. New King wanted to convey Western concern on the Old King’s War Crime and to protect him from West. That is why he declared in his meeting with New York Sinhalese that he was the one finished the war with War Crimes, not the Old King.

    Sinhala Intellectuals are thinking that the power of the Aappa Diplomacy is such that anybody can be cheated any amount of time. Sampanthar lost his wings, the TNA, in this hurricane.

Otherwise, if MY3 xstays with Ranil, MY3 will also be zaccused for sharing the Central Bank loot.MOdie may have involved in it. Becuse even Ravi the LIAR is safe now and no one from FCID is coming forward to give evidence to say RAVI the LIAR lied. Arjun Mahendran is safe. Ranil is behind it. Ranil is trying to say it si the foreigncountries that did it and not me when he is the Instigator with RAVI, Arun Mahendran and PAskaraligam.

    The Indian PM talks of projects and not a single project unless NM wants to generalize the specific case by uttering the plural. If it actually refers to a number of projects then the chances are that most of them are being implemented by the UNP Ministries and for that what is appropriate for RW is to convene a meeting of the relevant ministers with or without their secretaries. If the exception is the case, then the chances are that MY3 would express feigned concern of NM’s reaction and request a presidential bureaucrat to “look into” and do nothing.

    What a classic photo to depict the current Battle between the Toiyas & Baiyas in Lankawe.
    Although Sira crept in to the Baiya Camp not by choice..

    Anyway this is all about ETCA.. And you know what it means for our Baiyas.
    Already Colombo is totally out of reach for the Baiyas except in the Slums.
    Even that will vanish when ETCA comes.

    Havelock Town Apartments already start from 34 Mil. for Two Bedrooms.
    Exactly the same price of a Yahapalana Car Permit which Dr Ranil gave the UNP Ministers and other mates..

    That will double when ETCA immigrants move in .
    Toiyas who got the free car permits and bought Apartments or got them as Santhosams from Aloysious are Ok..
    I don’t know about the rest , specially those from the South who think they are Toiyas, and go behing Dr Ranil…

    Why Modi is so pissed off that he can’t get the ETCA soon…
    Rich Hindians who back Modi do not like the polluted Delhi and Bombay and Bangalore.
    They do not like the Toilet less Tap Water less Hindians living in slums next their Million Ruppiah High Risers.

    Port City living in Lanakawe on the Coast of the Indian Ocean must be like heaven for them ,
    Top Class Dining, with Bavaraian Schnitzel, Japanese Wagu Beef ,Peking Duck and Southern Fried Chicken Foot Massages, from Thailand . Full Body Rub from Ukranians, and Ayurvedic pain Relief with a Happy ending from our own Hybrid Chicks will be the ultimate the Luxury living..
    .And it will be Luxury to the Max at a Budget Prices too , with the Yahapalanaya making the Ass falling off the Ruppiah..

    Mr Modi is smart. Isn’t he?
    I heard , Modi even played a Gandhi Song sung by our Yakkos, to entertain Dr Ranil ,after Dinner in Delhi.
    Wonder our University of Lankawe give him also a PhD?…
    Do the Hindians eat Schnitzel ?…

    I know no nothing Ravi last time won his money laundering case as soon as he became the Finance minister within the 100 day govt. Now his second case that CIABOC JUDGES (those from the Supreme Court) accused him for being a LIAR. LAst time his court case postponed because the EVIDENCE did not come forward. this time Court case again because the chief Magistrate hearing the case was not present. Sri lankan court system for Parliamentarians. Think if a Poor fellow was caught stealing something. One FAMLE teacher was in the jail for EIGHT years because she got a BRIBE of Rs 25,000. BTW. I heard, there are 45000 cases of Micro Lawns defaulters and for most of those people the gurantour had been a minister or a Parliamentarian. The govt has set aside Rs 1.2 billion to forgive those loans.

    Addressing a function to pay homage to D.S.Senanayake, President said when he joined hand with UNP to contest as the common candidate he assumed that UNP at that time was same UNP as the party of Senanayakes. But after working with UNP in Yahapalana Government he has realized present UNP is not same as UNP of Senanayakes. Is this man who has been in politics for four decades so naïve to assume Ranil’s UNP is not same as Senanayakes. We the ordinary Sinhala folks knew that except few young fellows who did not know the history of UNP. Was he naïve or was he greedy for power?

    The most important foreign embassy that needs to be listened to is India always. Be on the right side of India and you will do well. Cross swords with India and your number will come up soon enough. A game godeya will not understand these things quick enough. But we as a nation love our game godeyas and vote for them to rule over us. The moment an intelligent educated man comes forward he is laughed at ridiculed abused in the most foul manner. This is why this island is a cursed hell hole full of deceit which will never prosper. This is why we have Sirisena president. India backed him to get rid of the other new rich godeya and his family of murdering scum. But this one did the same as the old one. So now India in its own time will come up with a replacement. Lets hope we don’t get another gamay bhaiya. I don’t think the country and its economy can withstand any more of these imbeciles.

      Wera,
      It is not Game Godaya that ruined the country or the economy. According to a politician who appeared in a TV political discussion the country and the economy is run by a Royal Gang consisting of five people; namely R.nil, M.lik, C.arit, P.skaralingam and A.rjun. Medamulana Godaya handled the economy much better than this Royal Gang who are clueless of the ground situation.

    Impact of ongoing crisis in an Island no way of solutions by UNP leadership that kept our nation in uncertainties and dark clouds before the People of Island.
    Well establish facts revealed that UNP has no solution except loot Public Funds and tax payers money by all Ministers of “Good governances” by apply ‘misrule of law’ by IGP!
    Political issue & promises of UNP mandate in 2015 August 17 has created new Economist’s catastrophe of Island by UNP Neo-Liberalist policies.
    The Trade war between USA and China has created New Traffic crisis in Global-widely. It is different from previously of 2008 that Wall street that collapse of entire financial market in USA, UK , EU Japan and other western out sources .. No country of rich nation economy has recovered since 2008???

    UNP leadership has no solution of Economy crisis or their not that awareness in-depth domestic and Global crisis. We are living in dark-era no visionless leaders of UNP who have guide-lie for the f nation development of GDP of Lanka. Under the current govt. UNP Old and New leaders are visionless ?
    In additional to that CBK of SLFP-federalist politics are fully dark lack future of Lankan?

    Both leaders M3 and Ranil are just like Nariya who put on Lion’ coat. What a disgrace to our nation. Both sold our dignity & integrity to India. India orchestrated conspiracy to kill president now trying hard to cover it up with nonsenses.Any country can offer aids but it is upto our leaders to utilise them the way they want.

    Hard core UNP-leaders & adviciesrs not aware Trump that White House administration has gradually replace Wall Street political-economy . By and large Traffic Wall economy by Multi-nation of private Empire will be control which is that USA new wave of set of policies of US monopoly -hegemony in world-wide.
    Its mean that USA huge economy of US $ 19.6 trillion has shifted to National Capitalism by “Traffic Wall” to protected USA one and only economy…..going to stop driving force of ongoing Globalization of Value Chain .
    What dose that mean former International Division of Labor of hegemony of USA,UK EU and Japan has lost all in power of economy control by USA Wall street gradually turn into Emerging nations Economies of power houses moving towards for south-south market .
    China playing pivotal role of Economy ,she has Second Largest World Economy to USA come to US $ 14.6 trillion. The republic of Indian has passed that France Economy reached 6th largest GDP of Economic world that in recently. Global Trade almost 60% contributed by Emerging Nations .
    What I think that policy of “Traffic Wall” by USA will not be practical step of globally moving GDP growth by orthodox new-colonial policies adopted by Conservesity of think-tank of Trumps will doom to failure soon?.
    The new Traffic Wall … of Trump that unwise policies undermined growth of Global Economy, it will leads to move new vicious cycle of crisis through-out the chaos in world.
    The UNP’s that Ranil Wicaks and his uneducated bunch of Ministers MOF and Central Bank Governor has not understand of that Nation Capitalism is moving wrong direction by creation New Man Made economic crisis in Globally by USA Trump’s camp.
    What is aim of RUPEE Devaluation as currency policy of FREE FALL not that solution of ongoing crisis.It will more damage Nation Economy by UNP unwise policies. We have to looking after appreciation of Rupee currency to improved that ours FORX as quick possible..

    What I want New set of political , policies by changing of Old Global -political -Economy by USA led camp.
    There is no way survival old system of Economy ,until we are moving sustsnsbility path and model of Capitalism suited to Sri Lankan ground reality consider the structure of economy foundation taken into by in depth study on seriously RESERCH AND DEVELOPMENT. .
    Ours capitalist development has 70 odd years delivered nothing except GDP has grew to US $ 85 Billions. That is ours GDP was slow growth last 70 years that compare with Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and Twain having over US $ 300 billions of GDP of last 60 years.
    We lost of that mode of Capitalism developing national economy by failure of GIVE RESULT Political parties and its class leadership.
    This has to be re-address and re-directed by New strategy of Sustainability of path of Capitalism .
    It embodied as the new industrial of ICT -REVOLUTION (Internet Communication Technology) manufacturing advances and servicitfication. while competitiveness of a nation manufacturing EXPORT will need to increased that depend on LOCAL AVAILABILITY of broad range of items reasonable price-services.
    In reality diverse agriculture sector comes to productive growth has to build Rich peasant economy..
    Its address majority Rural -POOR .Its should be about fostering manfcfacturing linked services industry as well.
    We have to learn more lessons of real time of Economy.
    But we are still looking so-called that but backward of “Free Trade Agreement” with Indian, Singhopor and other is that not going bailout our nation ongoing economic crisis.
    Leave it old national policies back to square one of competitive of our EXPORTS ECONOMY.
