SLFP Crisis Worsens: Darley Road Headquarters Will Remain Closed Until President’s Return From Holiday

President Maithripala Sirisena has reportedly ordered to close down the Darley Road headquarters of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party until his return from Thailand next week, Colombo Telegraph learns.

The decision to close down the main party office follows a heated meeting between senior party officials and electorate organizers, on Saturday, over the current political situation.

The party sources said no one would be allowed to enter into the SLFP headquarters until the President’s return from his holiday. “It is a precautionary measure to avoid any unnecessary incident. We don’t want to take that risk in the President’s absence,” they added.

At the meeting chaired by SLFP General Secretary Prof. Rohana Lakshman Piyadasa, a group of SLFP organizers severely criticized President Maithripala Sirisena’s decision to form an alliance with the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna. Senior party officials including S.B. Dissanayake, Nimal Siripala de Silva, Dayasiri Jayasekera and Duminda Dissanayake also attended the meeting.

The organizers who criticized the President’s actions lamented that the decision to contest elections together with the SLPP would uproot the SLFP at the grassroots level.

When asked about the meeting, SLFP stalwart former Minister S.B. Dissanayake said, “Media doesn’t have to know what was discussed at the meeting. It is not the media’s business.”

      SLFP has done enough damage to the country. May be, it is time to destroy it. However, to be destroyed by SLPP is worse.

      Will the people, mean IQ 79, understand that SLPP with MaRa is worse, as SLPP is a MaRa Medamulana Family Business?

        Amarasiri,
        Medamulana family business was far better for the ordinary folks in the country compared with business of ‘Royal Samanala Gang’ who did most of the things for the benefit of their cronies and pay masters of ‘Regime Change’.

          That is why the country is taken to eternal chinese debt trap.

          You guys are brainwashed by his varioius tactics, and made permament blue flies (nilamasso) being found on their heaps of excreta.

          But before long, the very same folks would realize, that Rajkaahses are born rascals and high crimals.

          Alone yestreday what came to light was, his first cousin, most known unedcuated AMBASSADOR then appointed to represent srilanken in the US – Jaliya Balige putha Wikramasooriya… remember how he performed, .. now is being caught to have gone through all the fradulent deals.

          The days, the other ballige puthas, 50% aka Basil and country’s executioner Gota being caught by US courts are not that far.

          We have already filed a case against Ballige Putha Basil and Gota against their direct involvmeent in the conspiracy which took this country from frying pan to hearth during the last 52 days.

          Believe or not, all grass eaters incl you would have to face it sooner than later. We will round up you the buggers inthe days to come. Jaya niyathayi.

        It is the SLFP which brought the curse upon this beautiful nation with its founder SWRD breathing into the gullible, unassuming simple folk racial and religious hatred and every Christian convert for political convenience therefrom including SWRD held a so called ultra hard-line view even contrary to the teachings of Buddha.

        Be SLFP be dammed and so be its off shoot – SLPP – a party of betrayers who sold our country to the Chinese for their personal greed to amass money like never ever dreamt by them – bunch of low level thieves and pariahs.

      Respect this party ever maintained was hugely damaged by SB disanayaka and Maithripala Sirisena during the those black 52 day-conspiracy.

      I wonder under what LAW AND ORDER regulation, SB or the like still remain scot free not being arrested for direction handlings of buying OPPOSITION MPs as became clear to all by the recordings set by UNP MP Ranga Bandara ? It is read if any LAW MAKER to have done such dealings be connected with at least 7 year old jail session, since the kind of acts are interpreted as punishable crimes, here no arguments would be necessary at all.

      Lanken MEDIA has not informed general public how dangerous ruling MPs to fall this deep. All becasue the media SUPPORT high criminals in public. The media cutlure is gone to all bearing.

      And, not all sympathisers would respect or be patient with low level performances of the these beasts. There are lot more that are passive yet today will explode themselves in the future for sure. The party was brought by LATE Bandaranayaka and his priciples have been brushed aside by today, just for the survivial of bunch of rascals and highly uneducated men such Sirisena and SB.

      Alone SIRISENA to underestimate the greater damage committed by their men in Parliament on the 14 th Nov (brawl in Parliament against incumbent Speaker and his guards with interntional diplomats closely watching at them form the parliamentary public gallery.

        Reason for all these problems appears to be the lethargic & lackadaisical attitude of the authorities in the investigations and punishing the wrongdoers giving priority, to the fiasco in the parliament and the bribing MPs to switch sides. They should have finished those matters pronto but sorry to note the investigators are in deep slumber and the maters have become stale by now.

          Gratiaen,

          see, almost 5-weeks gone since that parliamentary brawl, not a single person among them are yet arrested.

          Alone that man from Kelaniya – a Kasippu seller coming from a very low background to have poured a bottle of water on to the seat of honourable Speaker s seat, and the very same man to have thrown chilli powder containing water to several MPs (Jayawikrama, JVP MP and others) on that day, is not yet punished.. this is no means acceptable if we have a law bound systems in this country.

        Dear Babalathappu,
        .
        I agree that Sirisena has fallen very low in our estimation, but I wouldn’t call him “uneducated”. The way he speaks, he has to be well-read. He even has certain values.
        .
        However, he has shown that power and position went to his head and he became so arrogant that he felt that even the most unprincipled actions on his part were justified if he was countering those who subscribed to different life-styles. That’s been so, during the past four or five months, when he decided to go to Rajapaksa.
        .
        When, after the February local elections, he tried to get somebody else from the UNP to take over, he was being a bit slimy, but it was “acceptably dirty politics”. It was not ethical to interfere in the running of another Party, but wasn’t Ranil’s running of the UNP also to blame?
        .
        On the other hand, S.B. Dissanayake has some University degree, and had been firmly rejected by the the voters of his village. How could he have been then nominated to Parliament?
        .
        The same for Thilanga Sumathipala, and Dilan Perera (who has an excellent political father).
        .
        How do we get rid of these fellows? I don’t think that either of us as an answer!
        .

          Sinhala Man,

          thanks for your comment to mine above. I am afraid, I beg to differ you regarding SIRISENA being NOT unedcuated, to me he is even more uneducated than Rajapakshe who was then misled by his Royal astrologer. Please read through the followings, there I think you may need to pay your attention closely. President himself boasts about his 51 year old experience in lanken politics, but I dont think he as a leader achieved that much during his tenure, but UNP led by PM did a great job in terms of external politics (since 2015), the harvest was reaped by SIRISENA. There are enough source of information, to see, how SIRISENA’s silly performance stood on the way whenever UNP law makers did their job well. Alone that Wijedasa Rajaakshes unethical behaviours were known to President from the day one, but there President never took a decision against the illfated law maker.

          1. Let s go back to the speech he arbitorily held after sworning in PM ending that 52-day conspiracy. There, Sirisena pronounced it as no other would do, that his reactions on bringing such gazette notification came into being after his consultions with SENIOR lawyers.
          But as I read it in various sources of news coverages on the issues, none of those lawyers confessed them to have advised President in that regard, but upon his over reactions, all those lawyers had no other options than defending the incumbent president.

          2. Secondly, the very same presidents ludicrous statements on his unconsititional behaviours as if it came from a headless chicken were repeated by him in that estranged speech one behind the others, as the audience would be exclusively consisting of a gallery. But we know most of young MPs joined their had been threatened ONLY to listen what he has to say on the issues, prior to that speech (MP Hirunika made it very clear to the press afterwards)

          3. Even after the 10 judges endorsed it on two separate sessions (7 +3) that the dissolution of the parliament irrespective of the paragraghs read against it in the lines of 19th Amendment, president sillly added his remarks to prove other way around – how can even ANYONE with a little brain behave so if he is normal ? His tone of the speech btw way sounded as if he was out of the srilanka, while almost everything was being happened ?
          Besides, making public statements against coutry’s judiciary is connected with higher punishments, should well be known to him and Rajapakshe clan let alone today

            Yes, Babalathappu,
            .
            I think that everything that you say, is sane, rational and clear. I think that I’ve got pretty sick of Sirisena’s misjudgements. If I have any reservations about what you say, it may only amount to semantics.
            .
            I’d still make the plea to avoid the use of the word “uneducated” because applying that label has social implications. To most it connotes that a person hasn’t got “background”, and that he hasn’t taken the trouble to improve his mind through reading. It also suggests brash and crude behaviour. Such traits he doesn’t exhibit. He’s also got a certain seriousness of approach.
            .
            But recently he’s displayed arrogance, and an inability to make judgements in a range of situations which his present status as President demands. The sooner he’s out of office the better. We have to tolerate him for another year.
            .
            Throwing him out now, could plunge us in to further constitutional issues, which I think that we could do without. Calling him names would also have the effect of sending a message to all those from “non-elite” (another nebulous concept) that social mobility is impossible even when a person makes strenuous efforts. Contrast with Seeni Bola’s attitude that any sort of rowdy behaviour from him is all right.
            .
            Few of us have to deal with the judiciary; that is a specialised field. Sirisena is totally incapable of doing that. He was used enough to Parliament, but he was lost in all the new social situations he was placed in. He’s a bit of an introvert and a loner. He had no one to advice him. Now he’s a disaster. But he may still be able to live in harmony in his rustic environment. Let’s respect persons coming from that background.

          Sinhala Man,

          Get the JVP and others to table a motion in parliament to table a motion to Impeach Sirisena, making the arguments that he took the oath to protect and defend the constitution, but did. Unlawful and Unconstitutional acts, confirmed unanimously by the Supreme Court. Get Nagananda and the Civil Societies at the grsss toots to contact their MPs and request that they vote for the motion to impeach Sirisena. Will Ranil W with rotting balls go along?

          What do you think.

          The constitutional coup leaders are still at large.

          Don’t just sit there. Do something.

            Dear Amarasiri,
            .
            True it is that I just sit here and do nothing. I wish I could match you, and os many others – after all I make all these claims for myself, claiming to be a grass-roots guy!
            .
            Let me think this out, and tell you where I stand with the JVP and with Nagananda. I think that it is the latter that is more promising. I’ve seen him asking us to contact him – and to donate (which also is necessary, I’m sure, even if the amounts that we can give are small.)

              Dear Amarasiri,
              .
              I’ve just tracked down the local JVP guy, and spent about three hours chatting with him. This is the guy whom I voted for in February, when, I think the vote had to be marked such that all the ballots received by him were credited to him, since he had been named as the guy who represents our Ward.
              .
              He is a teacher of Geography, and he said that where he fared best was in the postal votes. He lost badly, of course, but he feels that he got a good many votes from teachers teachers who had been sent on Election Duty.
              .
              I will provide you a fuller answer tomorrow.

            PART ONE

            Dear Amarasir,
            .
            What I feel about the leading JVPer in this area, I have recorded in this blog,:
            .
            https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/jvp-councillor-samantha-widyarathna-seeks-unhrc-intervention-to-secure-compensation-over-uva-wellassa-rebellion-in-1818/
            .
            This man Widyaratne was actually a Member of Parliament from the Badulla some years ago. I think that he resembles the archetypal politicians that he rails against. They thrive on controversy, and the publicity such things bring.
            .
            The system of voting that we had for the Local Election Councils was an improvement on what we used to have. The people are listened to at least for a brief period before the elections. However, my meeting with the local JVP guy was disappointing.
            .
            He was honest enough, and he appears to enjoy working on his quarter acre of land far from his home. Ruwan Abeysekera is a Geography teacher; a man from the area, who had somehow got his appointment as a teacher, and subsequently his external Peradeniya. Considering what his subject is, his knowledge of the World was abysmal. He has three children, the youngest way smaller than the other two. When saving Ruwan’s phone number, the little guy got interested in my Samsung smart phone. The conversation drifted to Nokia which the father thought was made in Hungary. He hadn’t even heard of a country called Finland.
            .
            The site for the house was chosen because it commanded a wonderful view, but its construction had come to a halt, and there was no way even a comfortable footpath could be got to the place.
            .
            The most astounding fact was that I looked him up on the First of January, but he wasn’t sure whether schools would re-open the following day (they did!), and he was hopping that there’d be an announcement on the 8.00 p.m. TV news.
            .

            PART TWO
            .
            I get the growing feeling that we have now got two groups in the country. Political power is with us who are reasonably well off and know whatever of importance is happening. The rest have neither money nor knowledge. They crowd round the T.V. in the evening. They cannot get at the internet in anyway. I think that they accepted that they are fated to live out their lives on Earth, with no real change. Except the father, who still had some vague feeling that he should support the “progressives”.
            .
            Most people still fear the JVP because of what they did from 1988 to 1990 – a period when I wasn’t in the country. I don’t see them garnering many votes at elections; for which reason they may not contest, seeing that it would expose how little strength they actually have.
            .
            If we really want to be ensure that the aging trio of Sirisena, Ranil W. and Rajapaksa are not with us for another two decades, Nagananda is our only hope, but even he seems a long shot. But at least he’s launched a serious campaign, which, it seems must be followed on FaceBook – something that I spend very little time on:
            .
            https://www.facebook.com/nagananada/
            .
            As for impeachment of Sirisena, that seems hardly a safe thing to do now because then Ranil will step in.
            .
            I’m tired and sleepy, apart from the despair I feel.
            .

          Dear Sinhala Man,
          sorry, part of my last comment was not fully published by CT may well be having exceeded the word limits. So I thought of adding it again here below.

          1) I myself happened to listen to an Audio tape in which SIRISENA himself attacks Rajapakshe et al. to be behind communal violence in the country, incl. this year’s Kandy riots and not forgetting DURGA city riots few years ago but in the high days of MR rule. There he resounded, it was not SIRISENA govt but earlier and today in both contexts, Rajapakshes men were/are behind those riots exercised on MUSLIM community. Lanken press was not focused on the remarks, since biased black media thought it would be very disadvantageous for FAKE premier just got appointed.

          Sirisena’s KEY example was – that Sarath Weerasekara (or wijesekarare) was the master mind of Kandy riots according to Prez Sirisena, because SW intended to gather information to bring them to UNHRC sessions as they have been used to.
          You may have read that Sarath Weerasekara, Nalaka Godhewa and few other EXTREMISTS keep visiting UNHRC sessions annually to paint the picture in favor of extremist clans in the country. All these groups are seen with Rajapakshe activities on the stage.

          Above mentioned audio tape came in, after SIRISENA himself risked appointing MR as FAKE PM.
          So, tell me please, if SIRISENA had some level of education, would he ever attack his newly rejoined friend Mahinda that manner? No consistency at all I could see in such statements, even if these are public statements that should be concerned as HIGHLY SERIOUS to lanken politics right ?
          Further to this, he went on reiterating those BBS and their acts were deliberately made by Rajakashes to show the world that we have on going communal violence between our ethnic communities.

          contd.

          not to get confused, I reply to you sometimes why me being on the way (in a tram, on a train or a plane) But I have to have added mine to you, since I believe, you the like gentlemen could pass the view to the many close to grassroot level people that have become the human shield of RAJAKASHEs today.
          To tell you the truth, even our academics would not do the job properly, going by that Prof Laksiri Fernando, for whom I kept much hope, has boomeranged with his support being offered to RAJAPAKSHEs today. This is very dangerous to my eye

          Dear Sinhala Man,

          This is the missing part of my last comment to you :

          2) Now coming back to SO CALLED BROAD day light bank robbery according to them
          This was telecasted by a group of parrots regularly trained by Pro-SIRISENA media units (we knew that SOME surplus frequencies were bribed to SIRASA killi’s group expecting them to work for SIRISENA)- these parrots spoke louder than they could but on 1% of losses in bond scam, but deliberately neglecting the investigations based on 99% losses made during 2008-2015 ?
          In the speech president held after PM-sworn- in, clearly stated that over 1000 billions rps are missing through bond bank scam since 2008.
          Now good governance GOVT – is alleged to have lost 10 billion and those sums are frozen for future use according to CB governor. And not to forget two key men of the corrupt handling are further remanded, just former CBG is missing but awaiting to be brought to the country.
          But what have they -president’s men done to investigate the losses of 990 billion since 2008 to 2015? Latter is made up to 99% losses compared to the loss being pronounced to have occurred in the RW’s rule ?

          And why President btw kept secret all the recommendations on 34 cases brought by Presidential commission with some of them – glass clear MAHINDA Rajakashe to be jailed at once – for having been the mastermind of those high profile crime handlings. Even today, keeping LAW and order under him, what has he been doing ? If he is not that uneducated, he could just ignore them right, but his remarks one behind the other seem to have no consistency at all. Dont you think so ? I do.

      We are also equally interested in whose funds being abused by ballige putha SIRISENA to travel to Thailand this time if that would not have been an official visit.

      The country is being taken to a hardup nation, but the bugger as the head of state to play with our state funds is no means affordable to us when thinking about the huge sums of loan installments that the state has to pay by mid of Jan 2019.

      Media INSTITUTIONS are made biased to them, preventing peoples getting the facts aboutthe gravity of the economic setbacks thecountry has faced during last 2 months alone.

        Deep in his heart, I am sure, lies some sort of unsatisfaction and inferior feeling that is turning him a rude guy. He might have expected majority of people would accept him as President in 2015.

      In order to normalize the country’s situation and see it further… would you guys agree with me followings.

      1) Rajakashe men to be punished for their earlier high crimes and the new crimes added to the list since 26th October 2018

      2) Number one high criminal of the day – none other than unedcuated President SIRISENA to be sacked from his position, not just sacking but to put him jail for his rest of life

      3) SB Disanayaka and the 16 -memeber group be punished with all the unlawful acts being dealt in public, being unconstitutioonal … with awareness of all various folks across the world.

      4) All other RASCAL politicians, became even more contrast to the world in the parliamentary brawl sponsored by Rajakshe ballige putha and his bastard eunach son Nambal baby on 14th Nov 2018.

      5) All those whose crimes records were not properly addressed during the last 3.5 years be SPEEDED UP and serve the justice… not forgetting THADJUDEEN murder committed by Rajkahase family- be punished OPEnly as they can… they should all be hung by their balls bringing them to GALLE FACE GREEN

        Dear Simon De Silva,
        .
        I agree; I may not have put it so colourfully.
        .
        None of us wants kangaroo courts, I’m sure, but nobody involved in politics seems ever to pay for their crimes.
        .
        Actually, it’s very nearly four years since Sirisena was elected, and almost nothing done. It’s time we began to think about whom we can next put in charge.
        .
        Yes, I’m now suddenly beginning to realise that we can’t keep excusing Sirisena. There really are so many innocent trusting people in the country; I think that our people are too deferential towards those in power.
        .
        I fear that I’m getting rather erratic myself. But this really is a country like no other!

        1. What we need is a person coming out at the next Presidential promising all what you have outlined clearly
        .
        2. He will get elected as our next President and

        3. Make use of this opportunity to earn much money as possible stealing public money and through commissions. Place all his unqualified relatives to high positions in state institutions and as Ambassadors representing the country. Silence those whistle blowers who attempt to expose his corruption using underworld gangs and thugs. A one time chance. He also has joined with his predecessors of corrupt leaders still not tried and sent to jail.

        4. Then again the cycle continues someone will come again promising to eradicate corruption send all the rogues in the previous regime to jail. Will that happen? No that is only a stepping stone for him also to join the corrupt leaders
        who are now rich.

        Best of luck

    The destruction of SLFP was a well planned coup by both the former President Mahinda Rajapakse and current President Sirisena. Initially SLFP was under the control of SWRD Family. Later it became under the control of Mahinda Family. Sirisena became a barrier to that hope. So Mahinda decided to destroy it. Sirisena thought his family can take control of it. But now he understood that is not possible. So both Mahinda & Sirisena decided to completely destory the SLPP. Will SLFP become a people’s party ever?

    Dear “SLFP stalwart, former Minister S.B. Dissanayake”,
    .
    While agreeing that it is not the medias business to make up stories, the fact is that it is only the media that can keep us, the public, informed.
    .
    The actions of people like you affect 22 million people; our experience has been that they “adversely affect” us.
    .
    And who are you? A Member of Parliament who was defeatedat the last elections. And why were you defeated when you contested the Nuwara-Eliya District? “Because it has a Tamil majority, and you are a Sinhala-Buddhist.”
    .
    But how come, that when the results were coming out, and those for the old “Hanguranketha Electorate” were being announced, it was revealed that you had lost even there – an area where you are said to have a palatial mansion and having an over-whelmingly Sinhalese population.
    .
    I hope that readers will look at this quite different article which shows how a younger Sinhalese man is conducting himself in a different part of Sri Lanka:
    .
    https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/us-them-flash-floods-in-the-northern-sri-lanka-aftermath/
    .
    Just get the hell out of both Parliament and “the Darley Road headquarters of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party”, and live in your Hanguranketha Palace; I hope that the people there will tolerate you, however unwelcome you may be.

        Lapatiyo,

        my question is even if SIRISENA is proved to be unconstitutional, him to stay further in that same seat ?

        Why on earth lankens tolerate that much ? HORA is hora but MEDIA men seem to do nothing regarding EDUCATING the people adequately.

        Devil is that dark, but MEDIA does not react accordingly.

        Those men RUN, Mawbima, Island and other new papers are close allies to RAJAPAKSHE mafia.

        So that i s the reason why NOTHIGN much moved regarding PARLIAMENTARY brawl directly sponsored by Ballige putha Rajakshe. There had been video clips by which we could see, how Rajakshse whispered to the ears his CONDOM supporters(loyalists) as if giving the sign to throw MIRISKUDU no matter entire world would have seen it.

        I AM SO ANGERED WITH THE POLICE AND LAW FUL BODIES NOT TO HAVE REACTED YET THOUGH 5 weeks passed since brutalities occured.

    Is CBK not a SLFP member anymore?
    It’s time for her to play a role in it.
    SLFP, I feel, destroyed the Ethnic Harmony that existed in CEYLON in the early part of 1950’s by bringing in the ‘Sinhala only’ policy and gained power.
    SLFP needs to change their outlook of being the party ONLY for Sinhala Buddhists. It should tell all SL citizens that they are for United SL and for Ethnic Harmony.
    All political parties should not used Buddhist Monks for political purposes. Monks should be barred from politics,
    All national parties should consists of ALL ETHNIC groups

      If the majority Sinhala-Buddhist voters have intelligence worth mentioning, they will associate the Mahinda Rajapakse name with the planned, wilful self-centred destruction of the SLFP to serve the narrow purposes of the present Rajapakse extended political family.

      The task before the older UNP is to remove the image from the Sinhala Buddhist voters island wide they are a careless pro-Tamil, pro-Christian/Catholic, pro-minority Capitalist-leaning Party. The SLFP voters and allies abandoned this is view in 1977. That was a period influenced by food shortages brought about by the left-leaning, politically inexperienced Sirimavo regime dominated by the LSSP/CP. The SLFP then was virtually family controlled. The chemistry between Mrs. B’s Cabinet and the Left leaders in that regime did not last long then. The Sinhala voter to his/her credit must be congratulated for rejecting familial rule then. Now that the selfish motives of the Rajapakse family is exposed it is hoped there will be better quality political thinking by the Sinhala Buddhist voter – in its own interest.

      Naman,
      ‘Sinhala Only’ policy was not the cause for destruction of ethnic harmony. Ethnic harmony which prevailed in this country was ruined by British bastards who colonized this country
      with their infamous ‘Divide and Rule’ policy; by Demala racist politicians who promoted separatism; by Demala politicians who told Demala people not to learn Sinhala; and by racist Demala politicians who depicted Sinhalayo as the arch enemy of Demalu for their political survival.
      Even today, biggest obstacle to ethnic harmony is elite Wellala politicians who like to perpetuate ethnic conflict for their political survival. If ordinary Demala people can get rid of this mafia, Sinhalayo and Demalu can live in harmony in this country. It is high time that ordinary Demala people rise against these crooks.

They kept on trying again and again but Sinhala ‘Ranawiruwo’ defeated them. Last battle to colonize this country was fought under the leadership of megalomaniac Malapaharan.

      Naman, I’ve been thinking a whole day about what you have said here. There is a need to re-establish ethnic harmony, but it may be more difficult and complicated than appears at first sight.
      .
      I agree with you about CBK. She is free of such prejudices and can be relied on not to play cheap politics; but will she be acceptable to sufficient numbers of SLFPers?
      .
      As a result of a century of patronage politics, whole families associate themselves with one of the two main political parties, and they will tell you that. The UNP has the largest such following. There is another lot of people in every village who oppose everything associated with the UNP. Also, who will not like to own something as big as a country without any effort on their part? For too long the Mahawamsa History that we have spouted has made the Sinhalese believe that this country (and Buddhism) belongs to them. On the other hand, monks obviously have the same civic rights as all others do.
      .
      The Sinhalese are not consciously racist all the time, but if the question is put to them, they affirm their stand. The problems of the country cannot be understood only in terms of the politicians. A huge section of the country goes along with the SLFP. If CBK can, with credibility, take charge of the Party that would certainly solve many of our problems.
      .
      If that doesn’t succeed, with which potentially violent group will this huge multitude associate themselves?

    S.B.Dissanayake used to attend SLFP meetings with a Buth-Parcel in hand in the early days.After he became a Minister in the CBK Cabinet, that too Samurdhi, he built a Palace like house on the top of a hillock at Hanguranketha; I was told that the whole town could be seen from the house.When asked by the Media how it was possible to build such a house,he had replied, that his friends had helped him!!!
    He is well-known in preventing the Media from asking too many questions.Again when he was asked about quitting something he blandly replied Mang eka Attha ariya!
    This time too his reply as reported above is in the realms of all Bluff!
    From 1994 to date he has come a long way close upon a quarter century!
    Dudley Senanayake, M.D.Banda, T.B.Subasinghe, Shelton Ranarajah etc come to mind as epitomes of character and integrity in Public Life.

      Dear Plato,
      .
      Thanks for confirming the view that I had of this despicable rowdy. In a sense, he’s not worth even the words we waste on him.
      .
      You have contrasted him with some figures from the past (one – Subasinghe – a Marxist). Never mind their ideology, they were decent people.
      .
      However, could you please let me know what you think of T.B. Ilangaratne? In our school days, he epitomised for us the corrupt politician. We used to say that he made money out of dried fish; so much, said Montague Jayawickrema in Parliament, that he had a hotel in Switzerland. Monty had actually seen Illangaratne’s portrait in the foyer!
      .
      Apparently all bunkam; they say he’d been a committed leftist politician – which we, perhaps are not. Apparently he’d done much for urban workers, mainly.
      .
      Of course, that’s past. My denunciation of Seeni Bola has met with approval, but more seriously, where is our country going? To whom will the many voters who are very different from us, turn? I must think that one out, for an hour, and put the question to Naman, above.

    placed him in the highest public office in the country expecting that he will change the political vulgarism that plagued the country with the introduction of 1972 Constitution which placed politics supreme over ordinary law of the country and then the 1978 Constitution which placed political power in the hand of one person dominant over entire political system; the Executive President. Now My3 has put the entire system in complete jeopardy. No body knows whither we are directed; just like a ship without sails.

    SBD was accused of masterminding and hosting secret meeting for October Coup. People who plot against public are always wish to keep media far away. If one media had been success in publicize what was going in SBD’s house, October coup might have been nipped on the bud. But SBD successfully had hidden the plots from Media and the Coup went ahead. SLFP, from the time of its birth, hated Media. Sirimavo was blessed by Daily News with an Obituary for democracy and Sirimavo Blessed Obituary for Daily News by nationalizing it. SBD’s behavior is not anything surprise. It appears the current secret plots are about how to kill SLFP and surrendering the members and trade unions to Slap Party intact, without getting split.

    Media is reporting New King is taking treatment in Thailand. There is a case concerning of his ability to perform with his mental status. Fear of the outcome of case is barring him holding the EP position, eventually, might have triggered him to go to the treatment. They all the Trio (Ranil-and the two Kings) go together to Telugu Venkatesa and Malayalee Aiyappa. They all three go to Malayalee exorcists to drive the ghosts have possessed them. They all three go to consult Sumanadasa Abeygunawardena together about what to next to destroy the country and their perceived enemies. So they all three have to go together to Thailand to get mental treatment, too.

    It was many times argued that there is room for SWRD socialism in Lankawe. Latter it tuned out be not any socialism in that, but only populism, Sinhala Buddhism, anti-minority sense arousal, Modaya crowd’s habit of opposition party voting and Biriyani and Arrack voting. Sinhala Buddhists are no socialists. The main indicator of this is the flat bottom failure of all colors and cue of Sinhala Socialists parties, hundreds of them mushroomed in Lankawe, from LSSP- the oldest political party of Lankawe.

    Finally, now, the so called Socialist has sought refuge in the world most notorious local and international criminals, the Slap Partiers.
    At start Slap Party can do some damage to SLFP. Main reason is because SLFP leaders like New King, SBD, Piyadasa et al are trying to confirm their places in Slap Party by selling SLFP to it. All their aim is pleasing Slap Party stalwart Younger Brother Prince. But Slap party’s sheer dynastical nature built into its formation policies will soon debilitate the party ability to stand in Lankawe’s corrupted Gilmart – murderous – violent- Racial hate promoting politics. It is not sure who is the one in the 2nd generation can flourish through that kind cut throat politics of Lankawe and take forward Slap party.

    It appears now practically nothing left to save on SWRD socialism in SLFP. If there is something real and not 100% mirage, it is accepted only one can do at this time is CBK. For her presently all the paths are locked out. After all, she is neither a left nor a socialist. She lived a life pretty equal to Ranil’s Royal College life. So her promotion has to be done by the anti-CBK activities by SLFP insiders, like SLFP Party secretary Piyadasa or Chairman New King. She can use it to seek sympathy within the party first and eventually from public. If that doesn’t work, there is very little chance to resurrect SLFP.
    If CBK is ready to let her father’s party to die but ready to rebuild on her father’s popularity, she can do what MGR did. When Karunanidhi was not accommodating in DMK him or Neduncheliyan he went and open another DMK as Anna DMK, on the name of the founder Annadurai. CBK can open another SLFP calling it as “Banda SLFP”. That would work.

    Sumanthiram speaking at a commemoration function for Joseph Pararajasingham has told Demalu did not vote for Sirisena or Fonseka at Presidential elections because they love them. They did so because they wanted to get rid of Mahinda Rajapakse probably because he gave the leadership to get rid of their ‘Sun God’ and Demala terrorists. It is crystal clear that UNP headed by Ranil and TNA fooled Sirisena with the slogan ‘Yahapalanaya’ and used him to achieve their hidden agendas. If this is the case President does not have to do anything for these crooks as a measure of showing gratitude. Screw these rascals whenever you get the chance.

    UNPs vote will/ can not be shaken this time thanks to the unsuccessful coup of MS-MR combine. But, there will be a growth of the vote bank of SLPP and that will happen at the expense of the SLFP’s votes. So the party stalwarts are really and reasonably unhappy about the current marriage of SLFP and SLPP. With the recent undemocratic drama, the position of MS has gone down quite markedly and when he climbs the political platforms, the party which he advocates will doom to fail. The position of MS in the present context, is unimaginably pathetic.

    Sirisena will ruin the SLFP. He has no class. He is not a person to be trusted. Sirisena had a egg hopper breakfast with Mahinda Rajapakse and gave him an assurance that he will be not contesting the Presidential Election. Before the food could get digested he walked to UNP Head Quarters, Sirikotha an declared his Presidential Candidacy. Then after coming to power on UNP and minority vote he secretly appointed MR as the Prime Minister of the country. No one will ever trust him hereafter. During the Presidential Election campaign Sirisena condemned MR and his family in personal terms . Then he called Ranil a Samanalya. A person’s sexuality is of no issue in modern day politics. No he is playing the race card forgetting the fact that he is there because of the minority vote. Sirisena will go down the history as the biggest “Paraya”.

    A big thank you for reminding the 1926 Historical Event. It has been the custom of Demala Vellalas of the North to lick the boots of the Kandyan Telugu Naikes and Karawa Caste Big heads of South. DS once said he could buy a Demalo for a coconut shell full of Arakku and a Ministry Post. It is a pity after 2009 May the same Vellala Demolo are now doing the same for a song.

    However you must thank the Same Vellala Damilo Sampanthan and Sumanthiran for their yeoman National Service in thwarting the Appa Kade Revolutionaries getting back to power.

    The Damelo modayas will have to pay dearly once again some time in the future for the sins of these two cronies .

      Mano,,
      .
      Why not avoid those racist, provocative and insulting terms “Demala”, “Demalo”, “modayas” etc when writing English. When using Sinhala, the denotative word “Demala” would be fine.
      .
      Why provoke people at all?
      .
      As for “Vellala”, let us not use the term unless we know exactly what we are talking about, and when making a serious analysis.

        Sinhala-Man

        I saw another blogger, no doubt pleased with your friendly and decent attitude in your regular comments, wishing you well for the New Year. Allow me to join him in extending compliments of the season to you and those near and dear to you.
        In your long career as a teacher, a good one I am sure, you have developed into a decent, accomodating and liberal human being in our divided society. There is little racial or religious prejudice in you. I know there are thousands of good Sinhalese like you keen to live in peace and amity with their Tamil cousins. This peaceful attitude will finally prevail. Those who sow hatred, religious bias and ill will for political gain will eventually fail.

        I look forward to reading you regularly.

          Dear R. Varathan,
          .
          Best wishes for the New Year!
          .
          I don’t know if I deserve all those nice things that you’ve said about me, and I hope that I will be able to live upto those expectations.
          .
          Yes, there are many good Sinhalese; many good human beings everywhere; the problem seems to be that it is so easy for one or two people to sow discord.
