Sirisena Tightens Grip: Obtains Court Order Against CC And Appoints New Organizers

Despite speculations that President Maithripala Sirisena would be removed from the party leadership, the President tightened his grip on the party yesterday by obtaining a court order to prevent the Central Committee from meeting without his approval.

Maithripala 14 July Pic sent by Prez MdiaColombo District Court issued a restraining order against the convening of the Central Committee of the SLFP without the permission of the head of the party.

The move was against the Party Secretary Anura Priyadarshana Yapa’s  attempt to convene a Central Committee meeting on Wednesday night at the Sri Lanka Foundation Institute to discuss about President Sirisena’s special statement on Tuesday. Yapa said over one third of the SLFP Central Committee members requested him to convene a meeting to discuss about the matter.

Meanwhile, four new electorate organizers of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party received their letters of appointment from President Maithripala Sirisena yesterday.

According to the announcement made by the President’s Media Division, Nirupama Rajapaksa has been appointed as the Chief SLFP organiser for the Mulkirigala Electorate; Victor Anthony Perera for the post of Chief SLFP Organiser of the Puttalam Electorate; Thilak Waragoda as the Chief SLFP organiser for the Kelaniya Electorate and R.P.Thusitha Kularatne as the Chief SLFP Organiser for the Bulathsinhala Electorate.

None of the new electorate organizers appointed by Sirisena are supporters of former President Rajapaksa.

    Senasinghe, the GUN UNP MP who acts like the Defence Attorney for Mahendran over the alleged Bond Heist at the CB, is now demanding 2 Billion LKR from Sunday Times.

    Because the ST reported that Senasinghe and Malini are friends.

    And Senasinghe tried to get the Yahapalana Customs to release a few Containers of Cu which had been confiscated.

    Wonder what this potential Yahapalana AG doing with Cu Rods and Malini?..

    And our Bodhi Sira who is supposed to look after our Customs as well as our Central Bank is suing his own CC.

    Whats going on in this Dharamadeepa, which Bodhi sira took over with the help of the TNA, Diaspora , CBK and the West to make it even better?..

    BTW Bodhi Sira said he was peeved off about the Bond Issue,

    And he expected Mahendran to resign.

    But he couldn’t do Jack Shit…

          “Yes, many duel citizens arrived in Colombo just before the elections.”

          KASmaalam K.A Sumanasekera meant Tamil Diaspora.

          How many of these voters had duel citizenship?

          So they spent thousands of dollars to be in their villages just to vote for Sirisena.

          They must be stupider than I thought.

          Now give us a figure:

          How many of them came to this island for the sole purpose of voting?

          How many of them were Tamils holding duel citizenship?

          How many of those voted for Sirisena were Tamil Vellalas?

      Dear KA Sumanasekera

      I admire MR on how he can garner the support of backside licking stooges such as your self that see no wrong in the lawlessness and corruption by MR & his cronies.

      Look at how you insult the president of this country – would you have dared to speak out like this against MR.

      Yahapalanaya is not perfect – but hope we never return to MR’s wicked rule again.

        It is perfectly ok if you want a pathola’jahapalanaya’ in which sira changes his mind at megabite rate.
        With what is happening in this country today where the sitting president dissolves the parliament just to save a daylight bank robber,you don’t seem to know the meaning of the word ‘wicked’
        But we’d rather have some who is capable of making decision and stick to it. It is always better to have someone who is only accused of stealing but could not be proven,rather than someome who was caught stealing red handed.

      Show Guts, Leadership and Statesmanship. Show them who is in charge here.

      Now you have an opportunity to gain the credibility lost die to giving nominations for Medamulana Mahinda Rajapaksa and his cronies, who are Liars, Crooks, Thugs, Thieves, Robbers, Criminals, and all those who are described as doing bad things such as raping, child molesting etc.

      These shows that the Prez is genius.
      He is gentle too. He i snot murderous. He is very democratic.
      As he stressed, he is the only president who got attacked while bieng in the power. He is not swollen being a prez. He is still the former man who knew the party politics of the liars and criminals filled srilanka. He did not go to asscoate thugs to round stinking Medamulana. I think best thing to do is to collect all the evidecne to corner Rajapakshe and his frauds.

      Then the nation would see it right that Bugger is caught due to that.

    ummm with reference to ‘None of the new electorate organizers appointed by Sirisena are supporters of former President Rajapaksa’. Isn’t Nirupama Rajapaksa the neice of Mr. Mahinda? Just a little addum: From some info that I seemed to hear straight out of one of the foremost political actors of the country, the husband of Nirupama Rajapaksa, Thirukumaran Nadesan was Mr. Mahinda’s no.1 fixer, and according to her possibly the richest man in the country now.

    Firmness was lacking in the President from day 1 and that was the cause
    for party stalwarts revolting against the President of the party and subsequent mishandling of the nominations took place and disobedience by rank & file set in. If he fortified his position immediately after assuming office of President of the country by having inner circle of confidants including of secretary(s) of his choice, as any other world leader would have done , he would not have faced this humiliation. If he did the ground work firmly, and early ,by offering Premiership to
    one of the secretaries, he even could have had a majority govt, with an SLFP member as the PM.,with few more SLFP’ers brought in into the coalition, giving no room for Ranil to grumble. He could have even delivered all his promises to the people by extending the life time
    of the parliament until official closure date,which is 2016.

    However, finally he stood by the people and they now understand the odds he faced, single handed and from now onwards, he should be firm
    in all his activities. One thing people fear is his security as he
    has not over hauled the armed forces and police and weeded off the
    undesirables and have some confidants in these units, so that, whatever
    political opposition, he faces, he will be in the safe hands and security of the people and the country maintained and lawlessness contained as he is doing a Ghandian job of protecting Peoples’s rights & well being.

      DCN – You said it right. From now onwards,the president should handle issues firmly, using little bit of totalitarianism in his approaches, like what the former president did. In his case, decency and mild manners of his, are taken for weakness. Come or go Chicago, he should put his foot down and deal firmly with all the threats he receive and
      clear all the road blocks placed in his path, using the legal powers
      he holds.

      Three junior ministers resigned yesterday and it looks like political
      thuggery is at play, already and he should nip it in the bud by giving the Police enough powers to arrest such thuggery as this election will be won by the survival of the fittest. The voters and the candidates of other parties should feel safe to carry out their duties.This should
      be the prime concern of the president at this stage.

    How long Sirisena can play this game? His actions only prove his insecurity. Sirisena is dead scared of Mahinda. When people suffer from inferiority complex, their behaviour is either aggressive or cowardice. Sirisena’s aggressive behaviour is only to cover up his lack of self esteem.

    Sirisena is doing really a good service to Mahinda. His earlier remarks and this restraining order both affect only his own stooges. People are now demanding the names of MAHINDA’S TEAM be published separately. There is no way people voting for Sirisena’s stooges because it is a well known fact that they are also third rate turncoats just like Sirisena.

    All Sirisena’s stupid actions will be defeated, not by Mahinda, but by people. Mahinda’s popularity started rising just after Sirisena’s remarks. People who didn’t think about Mahinda before, now feel for him. Sirisena even stunned Mahinda’s rivals with his vindictive malevolence against Mahinda. Now the entire country knows as to why Mahinda didn’t give Premiership to Sirisena when he was in power.

    The SLFPers now want Sirisena to be kicked out from the SLFP. Their wishes will come true soon.

      MS may be weak in UR thinking, but he should send back home Susil, Anura Yapa and MR coolies..and bring in a fresh set of supporters from within the SLFP and NOT The UPFA who would go hand in glove with ANY PM the President appoints for teh better of thE country..Send MR GR NR YR and their coolies to jail. where they BELONG…

    ‘In a significant move, former President Mahinda Rajapaksa assumed duties as the UPFA Elections Committee Head at the meeting of the committee at SLFP headquarters.

    Interestingly, the letter informing him of the appointment is dated July 2, a week before nominations were handed over. The letter is signed by UPFA General Secretary Susil Premajayantha.’

    This seems to be a bogus letter given that it is pre-dated. Just shows the qualities of the Jarapakse regime. Wonder if this position is valid as per party constitution. MS should take legal action to quash this position.

    Calling a Spade a Spade
    ========================

    Sitting back and analyzing the entire Political scenario of the upcomming General Election for 2015 , I say this without any reservations and with generosity, I can state with responsibility , the only brilliant mind who deserves any appreciation today among the entire Political drama that is going on is none other than Hon.Minister.Champika Ranawaka.

    he seems to be a very skillful political architect ,he has rightfully understood the Sri Lankan Mindset , he chose neither The JHU Slogan ,nor SLFP ,nor UNP , knowing and understanding well the instrument that gave victory to HH. Th President ,he too used a common front and then aligned with UNF ..
    Well done ,I see a future leadership in you especially now that you have got rid of the parasite of your party , am sure under your leadership while you take care of the Sinhalese Buddhist cause (which you are bonded by) you will not ill-treat or do injustice to other Minorities .

    Wish you nothing but Success .

    Anyway after the Rajapaksas went to the top in executive, they did patchup and Thiru Nadesan the fixer is more close to Ranil though he keep going to South Indian temples to bless Rajapaksas.

    Thiru Nadesan have made billions in the last 10 years and now the owner of Hotel Developers – the owners of Hilton Colombo among other businesses. This is the same man that MARA did call to bring RW on the night of the election day as the coup hatched by Gota/Mohan Peiris/Gommanpila/Jagath Jayasuriya did not worked out.

    Fighting with democracy and law in hand is much difficult than with jungle laws in hand which was used by MaRa. The true leader his facing challenges because in the party most of the MPs are corrupted who want MR to hide behind.

    Those changes you make HE are necessary ones to safeguard the party from becoming a group of ali baba and forty thieves. Frankly, that is what they are, but going around with a mask saying they are the ones who are most concerned on the national security. But on the dark, these were the very criminals either committing crimes themselves or hiring some poor folks to do the cruel works. Their desperate attempt to cover up their crimes is now based on the believe that they can fool only the people other than any one else. Once they elected, they try to nominate a parliamentary group to investigate into their misdeeds and get a reprieve, which is much better than ending up in the cells.

    These thieves should learn a lesson if voters understand their ins and outs. I am very much in support of young ones who aspire to come to politics and do something for the peoples not robbing them.

    Pathetic Sirisena is fighting in vain. Who said he is a Bodhisattva?

    He is vengeful and he cannot stop his hatred towards Mahinda.

    The other day someone quoted Buddha’s verse 5 of Dhammapada “Na hi verena verani sammantidha kudacanam averena ca sammanti esa dhammo sanantano”(Hatred is, indeed, never appeased by hatred in this world. It is appeased only by loving-kindness. This is an ancient law).

    It is time that someone reminds this so-called Bodhisattva of this Buddha’s teaching.

    Sirisena will end up as a pathetic loser. Every SLFPer will now hate this man who is putting up a “boru” yahapalanaya show. He will be chased away from SLFP and like Champika he will have to be rescued by Ranil’s UNP. Shamelessly he begged and got SLFP’s and UPFA’s leadership after defecting from SLFP and contesting for and on behalf of Ranil’s UNP. Mahinda made the mistake of not sacking him from SLFP immediately after this guy defected to contest against the SLFP and UPFA candidate. Mahinda was magnanimous in agreeing to turn over the SLFP/UPFA leadership to this Brutus.

    Not dissolving the parliament soon after presidential

    loyalists even after dismissing them from the cabinet!
    Even before the heat of the president election settled
    down!People would have better waited a three months for
    benefits than going through this kind of betrayal. People
    did not reject MARA to get him back from another door !
    It was an election that came premature, two years before
    time, so the voters can wait three months for promised
    benefits if the promise was made in such way allowing a
    quick general election. Nobody needs to panic if there was
    a cheating involving all three , MARA , My3 and Ranil !

    When the people of a Country have been used to been spoon fed for too long it is is not possible to bring changes ,and why should such a segment of the population want changes that will force them to give up their life long easy livelihood?

    I knew good governance is like the term socialism very perfect to hear all about it ,but never practical to endorse it in a third world Country where the larger segment of the people have set their mind at being wholly Subsidies families .

    It is not their fault, this is something they have inherited generations upon generations ,along with state jobs the “iron rice bowl,” and also most of the time encourage by politicians for their own gains,such folks are like having a permanent vote bank.

    The only way you could train these people,change their mindset is by forging a national government alliance and removing the subsidies in stages and empowering them by developing skills and funding their skills which will lead to self–reliance & nature resilience in the event of any negative impacts of external economic shocks.

    The state can not go on doing things to people what they can do by themselves forever, The state duty is to create a conducive atmosphere where all people can work and live without fear,with equal opportunities and this can be achieved by continuous peopleisation of state sectors , and it will be safer to reach out for advice of friendly nations around the globe who has succeeded in a system and have the experience and also is willing to guide and support.

    It is rather better to reach out to a once third world nation who has a tried ,proven and succeeded system,rather than try experiments ,where we the people end up as guinea pigs .

    I doubt any Political party will be sincere enough to form an alliance of national governance for the sake of The Country and its People ,almost all Politicians deep inside crave for the goodies for themselves and their immediate families , a national government can be only brought into the parliament by the vote of the people ,I sincerely hope and pray atleast this one time in our history people will act sensibly and make sure no single Political party will gain a majority in parliament and the situation will force them to forge an national government and will be forced to work for the sake of the Country and its people ,for once in our life time.

    And Pray the summe business of feeding parasites will soon come to an end.,

    Hope to see a true change .

    Naga. Are you singing your last song for survival?

    Sirisena is not going anywhere as long as his head screwed tight with YAHAPALANAYA.

    THERE WILL BE A COUNTRY UNDER THE GUIDANCE OF SIRISENA THAT YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE IN THE LAST SIXTY YEARS HOPEFULLY WILL BE BORN.

    IN THE LAST SIX MONTHS NOTHING WAS ABLE TO ACHIEVE BECAUSE OF THE ROTTEN MARA SUPPORTERS.
    VULTURES LIKE YOU SCREWED UP THE COUNTRY WITH YOUR MASTER. RACIALLY AND POLITICALLY SYPHONED OFF ALL THE FUNDS CAME INTO THE COUNTRY AS FOREIGN AID.
    RACING LAMBORGHINIS AND LIVED LIKE KINGS AND QUEENS WHEN THE POOR WAS DYING WITH DISCEASES WHERE NO MEDICINE TO TREAT NO EQUIPMENTS TO USE IN HOSPITALS WHY. ? BECAUSE. THE MONEY HAD BEEN SYPHONED OFF TO TAX HAVENS.

    PLEASE DO NOT PRETEND YOUR MASTER WAS SENT FROM HEAVEN TO SAVE YOU.

    MAKE IT THE COUNTRY FIRST TO PROSPER AND YOUR MASTER COMES LAST IN YOUR MANIFESTO.

    UTTER LIES FOREVER. LIARS NEVER KNEW THEY WERE TELLING LIES.
    THERE ARE FOOLS TO BELIEVE EVERY LIE.
    WHAT KIND OF PATHETICS LIVE IN SL AMONG US.

    BREAKFAST. LUNCH AND DINNER. ALL LIES.
