Sri Lanka Rides A Gotabaya Surge & Blends To A Sinhala-Buddhist Ethos: Election Sends A Chilling Message

By Kumar David

Prof. Kumar David

Let everyone first congratulate Deshapriya, Hoole, N.J. Abeysekara and the election staff for conducting a truly first-rate election under trying circumstances – COVID, political interference, a not very helpful AG and numerous court challenges by different interest groups against each other. We will be the poorer when their term expires and I dread to think who their replacements will be.

Recently I read somewhere that Abraham Lincoln mused “Elections belong to the people. If they choose to turn their back on the fire and burn their rumps they will have to sit on their blisters”. On August 5 the people of Sri Lanka singed their bums rather badly. The outcome is nothing to be happy about. In broad summary the results point to this:

a) We are a land soaked in Rajapaksa mystique and sodden in Sinhala-Buddhism.

b) The SLPP held on to 72% of the Sinhala-Buddhist vote and will form a strong government with MR as prime minister.

c) GR-MR have cobbled together enough for a new constitution without cross-overs or the need for Sajith who has now been rendered redundant. In this the siblings have defied predictions including even Basil’s; the way is clear for a constitutional dictatorship.

d) Sajith has wiped the floor with Ranil’s shirt and pants. He is in a position to take over the UNP name, Sri Kota and the Elephant symbol if he is so inclined. 

e) Sajith will be ineffective against Mahinda and Gota; he is no fighter. The anti-authoritarian space in Sri Lanka is a vacant lot.

f) A further reason for (e) is that the Sajith-UNP is hobbled by tensions between populists (Champika, Rajitha, Harin, Kiriella) and neo-liberals (Malik, Eran, Harsha, Fowzie). The Sajith-UNP, or SJB if it does not take over the UNP, will replace the Ranil-UNP as the focus of liberalism. From Champika to Fowzie and incorporating Sajith’s mild support of Tamil-rights that’s inevitable. In the 21-st Century liberalism will not dissolve into the village.

g) The poor performance of the JVP-NPP makes mobilisation against authoritarianism an uphill task (Sajith is of limited use for this purpose, but better he is in than out).

This and the next paragraph say things that has been on my mind for a long time but I could not utter due to electoral exigencies. That is, that there is empathy between the politico-cultural character of the people (mainly but not only the Sinhalese) and the Rajapaksa phenomenon (mystique and siblings). There is an intrinsic connection between the ethos of the people and Rajapaksaism.  What the Rajapaksas signify and evoke are what Sri Lanka is; it is as comfortable a blend as fish and water. It is too simplistic to reckon that war victory enamoured Gotabhaya to the masses. No, it’s a deeper psyche than that; what the Rajapaksas denote is what the Sinhala masses are; they gel. Despite much corruption, alleged criminality, excesses of the clan and ugly crudeness “They are us; they our ours”. This landslide election victory cannot be assimilated without sensitivity to that nexus.

The formal UNP has been wiped out NOT because of corruption, ineptitude and the bond-scam. There are far bigger and bolder rogues per square centimetre in the SLPP than the UNP or in Sajith’s bandwagon. The seamless blending of Gotabaya mystique into Sinhala consciousness, the symbiosis of the personal with the political-cultural, this is the true choreography of the drama. What the Rajapaksas emanate is what Sri Lankan polity breathes today. The motto of the government going forward will be Gotabaya adoration more than Sinhala-Buddhism.

The small upside (c) is tempered by the realisation that MPs can and will if needed be purchased. The big downside is (g). An implacable Executive leaning on an obedient military whose loyalty to the Constitution remains untested, now supplemented by a pliant Legislature, in the context of a feeble Judiciary and a chaotic Court situation is no pretty sight. I am surprised that not many see what I see ‘darkness at noon’. Responses like Mangala Samaraweerra’s Radical Centre (RC) launched on 6 August are inadequate to the task. RC envisages a middle way of democratic decentralised governance, abolishing distrust between communities, and flourishing in pluralism and secularism. “RC is where all can discover a common humanity beyond race, creed and caste”. Decentralisation, that is devolution of administrative and political power is good, and I am pleased by RC’s call for pluralism and secularism. Mangala’s denunciation of saffron-robbed thugs and Harin Fernando’s exposure of the cardinal trickery of the Anti-Christ are in line with my own outlook. It’s high time we in Sri Lanka stood up and denounced these Neanderthal cave dwellers. But . . .

My concern is that a liberal stance will not be adequate to counter the emerging authoritarian threat. Although there are no pogroms or race riots right now, no Kristallnacht and only some state sponsored demonisation of Muslims and “Eelamists”, the state of affairs in this country today is more serious than in Germany after the 1932 election. In the April 1932 presidential elections, Hitler polled 1/3 of the votes, but was defeated by Hindenburg in the July runoff. Even in the March 1933, two months after the Nazi seizure of power and after stormtroopers unleashed a campaign of violence and terror, the Nazi’s could only muster 44% of the vote in federal elections. The 72% Sinhala Buddhist landslide to the SLPP last week sends a chilling message about what kind of society we are going to be. Have the days of pluralism, multi ethnicity and multi faith been buried? Of greater significance is that this is a repeat message, first broadcast at the November 2019 presidential election. Both left and liberals stand on the common ground of pluralism, but the frightening difference with Nazi Germany is that pluralism in Sri Lanka is being buried not by fascists but by the mass of the Sinhala-Buddhist population. (“Father forgive them for they know not what they do”).

What needs to be done urgently is for the minority communities, the masses who voted for the SJB and will eschew a sell-out, and the left to all pull together on a minimum programme to resist the worst, and the worst is yet to come. The economy will grind down in the coming period and a kilo of onions whether you ask for it in Sinhala, Tamil or Arabic will cost the same. Up to a million jobs will disappear by mid-2021. Whether the government defaults on foreign debt servicing remains to be seen (if it does the rupee will collapse). This is the scenario that the state is preparing to meet and deal with by repression. The people have chosen to turn their backs to a raging fire and to embrace racism, to indulge in adoration of the Rajapaksa cult and to revere antiquated cultural baggage. To use Lincoln’s terminology, they will have their posteriors fried.  

Ranil is finished. At this time of writing not all the results are known but it is being said that he may not win a seat at all. The performance of the Sajith-UNP too is surprisingly poor, just 20% to 25% even in some traditional UNP strongholds. The cry of Gotabayaism and Sinhala Buddhism was not something the Sajith-UNP could withstand. The UNP has always had those who went with Sajith, not Ranil, are traditional UNPers. It’s as simple as that. 

The left was quite unable to withstand the Rajapaksa tidal wave. There was no animosity that I felt during the campaign on the count that we were not Sinhala-Buddhist enough, there was no backlash of that nature at all. (I was on the NPP-JVP platform). It was much simpler, thousands said how wonderful the JVP had been parliament but then went right ahead and voted otherwise. Ninety-five of every one hundred I spoke to were scathing in their scorn of SLPP and UNP “bloody crooks”. And of that ninety-five, ninety-four proceeded to vote for these crooks. It’s a schizophrenia that I have not seen anywhere else in the world.

The last matter of interest that I will reserve for another day after more information leaks out is how the MR-GR dynamic is panning out. It’s more than a MR-GR thing, its about the balance and sharing of power between Cabinet-Parliament and Executive-Military-Viyathmaga cabals. This tension will be a source of friction in the early months until the new normal settles into place. The elections have strengthened MR’s hand as he is the custodian of Parliament but his health does not seem to be very good to judge from public appearances.

        Perera, how can the name Perera be Aryan? It’s Portuguese. Perera, Silva, Fernando, Lenora, Cabral all Portuguese names. Please know your ancestry before “wanse kabal gaanna”. We islanders are a mixed bunch. Population study in genetics has shown this very clearly. People like you still fall for crafty politicians’ Aryan myth, and taking this country backwards while those politicians and their families rob the country. Open your eyes and see how many of those so called Aryan Hela politicians’ children have married to other races. Don’t fall for this primitive racial and tribal trap if you or your future generations want a developed country.

    Could those who have the ability, please put on some comprehensive comments in Sinhala? I think that if a comment is pretty good, Youtube will place it fairly high, although the author of the programme is allowed to select one or two and “pin” them on to the programme.

      I wonder if someone could also explain to us how Youtube works. Do they own the copyright?

      Can the guy who produced the programme remove some of the critical comments?

      Who decides where a comment is placed?
      .
      I’m convinced that this is what led to the sort of result that we got. If this Sepali was able to find out that 700,000 votes have been spoilt, is there nobody else also who would be privy to such information?
      .
      I’m so sorry that I couldn’t email my fears to some of the regular brilliant writers (like Prof. Kumar) who would have been able to expose what was being done. It is unlikely that the result could have been significantly salvaged, but it may have made just that bit of difference to the count.

      Dear Mr SM,
      .
      Good morning. An another sunny sunday is dawning to us in central europe, but I have still been making every effort to comprehend the election results GE 2020. There are also various speculations that the night before the start of vote counting, lot more untold stories should have occured, however, I cant know them better as you guys could do, me being out of the country.
      :
      That Palitha Thewarapperuma was respected by the villagers in that part for good reasons because he sacrificed his blood and sweat for distributions to the poor, however, he is not elected by the very same people – we always judge that lankens in general are soaked with repaying nature, what should have been the case, if you would please interpret the defeat of his electrorate.
      :
      And his arguments sound valid because how can you expect almost every district to allow SLPP to score over 70% even if they distribute takaran and other needs on the cost of the state, but to their people ? However, I dont trust the results any more. It is the world of Rajaakshes and their supporters of all various criminal energies, made it possible to get them 2/3… their aim was to get it by any means – now it is done.
      To be continued.

      Bitch s sons that looted upto 2015 would start it from the begining on,…. that Pacharala, the biggest criminals being kept above for their own survival. JVPrs should feel very about the defeat since they have been marginalized not allowing that great son of southern area, Sunil someone be not elected by punnaku eating people though OPINION polls revealed each and everyone in the country woudl commend his politics for the betterment of the country.
      I think srilanka is the worst country right at the momment to be branded as among the numerous other countries filled with high corruption LEVELS.

      Yesterday I happened to read on EU tabloids that the country will be led to a dictatorship and tourists are warned to travel to srilanka. They also believe that there will be no such solutions in sight for the ethnic problem of the island nation. People in our hell would go on adulating ” rajapakshe criminals” all along. I now thing, SIRASA TV could do lot more, but they di dnot… for some reasons.
      :
      If anyone would dream of a better future, that is just fantacies only. I really dont think that Rajakshes would achieve it for the benefit all but restrict to their family rule.
      :
      Stupid people dominated srilanka would go decades backward, if they would not do the right at this jucture, for the better future. If the lawmakers would not be able to pass new laws and reforms to the prevailing ones, it will again stagnate years. First they should be able to build up consensus for common good – that I dont think would ever be possible, so long Rajakashes as total uneducated people would be the political leadership.

    Mr. Sepala, I saw since a month before, you showed negativity towards Malimawa. You could have constructive logical criticism on them, if really need to see this country moving towards prosperity. Anyhow, as far I know, AKD leading the team, he is presenting the decisions that they have collectively taken. No one-man show there. My judgement still with relative principle 80:20. Further, Alibaba and 40 thieves spent billions to bring them down too…don’t forget….. Let’s have positive hope that they will come up by educating people and not giving Takarang, cement bags, 5k notes, lat porch etc from illegal money… like this:

    There is no rule book on how ethnic majorities should deal with manorities. Almost every race has blundered in this regard. I’ve seen it happen in three different countries with three different outcomes. With Pauline Hanson in Australia 1996, Jean Marie le pen in France 2002 and Donald Trump in 2016. Their concerns were the same as sinhala Buddhist’s. Which is that minorities need to accept the values of the majority or shut up. Hanson failed, le pen nearly succeeded and trump won. Tamils, muslims and Catholics need to put the land of their birth before religion. If can’t they can bugger off to toilet nadu, Saudi Arabia or Portugal.

      I am sure the minorities can easily accept the “values” of the minorities.

      It is the discrimination, hate speeches, fake stories of forced sterilizations and charmed toffees, that make Sinhala women barren, and the disproved theory that they (8 percent) are taking over the majority (80 percent) in the country, which results in mobs led by saffron robed terrorists, attacking their homes and businesses, is what they cannot accept. You must have some intelligence to differentiate the two scenarios. Do you think that the minority enjoy being the target of hate?

      Imagine the plight of dear Sri Lanka, if the Arab nations tell the Sinhala Buddhist labor force in their countries to “bugger off” back to their country. India already got that warning. From where do you think our dear leaders will get their no. 1 revenue from to run this country, from Myanmar? Last I looked, there were no Buddhists hiring fellow Buddhists from Sri Lanka. Where will we find those billions of dollars for this country to survive?
      Be careful what you wish for.

      …’minorities need to accept the values of the majority or shut up’. With due respect, this i an oversimplification of the Sinhala Buddhist electorate/majority. From what I understand,SB electorate had serious anxieties about the power of minorities in the previous government. They were exacerbated after the Colombo bombings involving the Muslim radicals. Apart from the bond scam, paralysis of governance due to the tussle between former President and PM, unfulfilled promises in the corruption area, I think the SB anxieties about the so-called liberal-pluralist yahapalana experiment (national government) was the key to explaining the SLPP victory. Rajapakse factor, including the symbolism as authentic Sons of the Ruhunu soil, come into the scene in this overall context( If someone writes a Rajapakse family history, he/she will find their ancestors during the late colonial period were anti-colonial and anti feudal(against the Mudali class). The very fact DM Rajapakse selected sataka Kurakkan colour was to reflect that he was representing Thalapa(made from Kurakkan) eating peasants.

      Why should they bugger off anywhere , it is their land of birth and they have every right to live in peace dignity and equality and demand for just rights in their own land of birth. Just because the Sinhalese Buddhists are in a majority , thanks to the British does not mean they have everything and these people have nothing and remain as slaves or forced to assimilate. Remember this land has never been exclusively Sinhalese Buddhist 1/3 pf the land had always been Tamil Hindu , until the British decided to give these lands to racist Sinhalese Buddhist like you on platter. They had no right to have do that. The Sinhalese and Tamil areas were ruled separately when they arrived and they should have left it like that or created a Federal state , where the rights of the Tamil speakers were protected . They did neither . yet the Sinhalese go around falsely stating the British favoured the Tamils. If you look at history , the British always favoured the Sinhalese and used the Tamils . They thought the Sinhalese were some native brown Aryans and they the superior white Aryans so deserved better than the Dravidian Tamils , just like the way they treated the darker skinned populations in India , compared to the lighter supposedly Aryan origin people. Sanskrit superior to Tamil as Sanskrit is Indo European so superior to Dravidian Tamil .

Sanskrit superior to Tamil as Sanskrit is Indo European so superior to Dravidian Tamil . In reality most Sinhalese and North Indians are not Aryans and most Sinhalese are descended from largely low caste Indian Tamil immigrants , who had arrived here from ancient , medieval and recent times and got assimilated. Half the so called present day Sinhalese people are descended from low caste Tamil indentured labour from India. Imported during the Portuguese and Dutch era. The Sinhalese also can get back to your original homeland which is the Dalit toilet slums of Tamil Nadu.

          If these Sinhala supremacists took a DNA test they will be surprised (but disbelieving of course), that they share DNA with Tamil Indians, and this has been researched and confirmed by Anthropologists, and experts. We may have a high percent of literacy in this country, but we also have a high level of ignorance, and arrogance.

      Trump is a joke and Pauline Hanson is becoming more and more irrelevant . Secondly everyone in Australia and the USA other than the Native Americans and Indigenous Australians is an immigrant or descended from an immigrant. So are the vast majority of the so called Sinhalese Buddhists. Most of them are descended from immigrants , largely low castes from Tamil Nadu , India or the so called Toilet Nadu , that Sinhalese racists love to call . This may be the reason many Sinhalese have toilet like brains and toilet in their minds. Unlike you I do not admire Le PEN and may have had some success but now becoming irrelevant too.

        As stated the Sinhalese are not native to the island and have never ruled or lived in the entire island but were confined to the southern , central and western parts until the British left. The North and East have always been Tamil land and this is even recognized historically and internationally. So how can you call the island as yours. This like the English in Britain stating Scotland and Wales also belong to them and not to the Scottish or Welsh as they are the majority. Your comments ooze of stupidity and racism . The Sinhalese can be only compared to Serbs in their behaviour and they created chaos in the Balkans. If any one is to leave the Sinhalese Buddhist can return to the so called Toilet Nadu from where most of their ancestors arrived from. Not the others.

          North and East is where Sinhala Kingdoms Anuradhapura (377 BC – 1017AD) and Polonnaruwa (1056 AD – 1310 AD) existed.
          ‘Para’ Demalu (aka Tamils) in the North who are the descendants of Dravida slaves brought by Portuguese to work in tobacco plantations are occupying the land of Sinhala Kingdoms. The history of ‘Para’ Demalu in the North start after Portuguese colonized this country. So, please return the land that Demalu occupy to rightful owners and return to your ancestral home across the Palk Strait.
          —-
          You cannot change the history of Sinhale by repeating this lie “The North and East have always been Tamil land and this is even recognized historically and internationally.”

      What is the concern of Chingkalla Pouthams? Please tell me? Why are they concerned about what? From the time of independence they have been ruling the country , preach and practiced racism , genocide , ethnic cleansing and
      war crimes. Ruining everyone else other than themselves , at times even themselves . Running the economy and country into the ground. All their patriotic Chingkalla Poutha parties . monks , governments servants and anyone who can have taken turns to rule the country and have looted not only the wealth of the country but also created Pogroms regularly to loot the wealth of the Thamizh and now the Thamizh Thullukans. Basically they have used their majority power bestowed to them by their former colonial masters the British to create mayhem in the island and make life hell for the Thamizh but still ccncerned and want to create more mayhem , as the Thamizh and Thullkan have thrived despite all their efforts to subjugate them .

      Westham,

      One follows the majority only in decision-making related to the common good. Will you follow allow your family to adopt the majority values in the country you live in (presumably the UK) in terms of cultural values, etc.? Likely not. Similarly, you will not give up your minority Buddhist religious values in favour of the majority christian values in the country you live in. If you are not willing to give up your ethic/religious values in a country that is not the land of your ancestors, why should tamils give up their values in the land of their ancestors. Tamils and Sinhalese have been living in Sri Lanka for thousands of years.

      In this regard, minority values can be preserved. Similarly, in a modern multi-ethnic society, minority values should also be encouraged to be preserved. It is possible for different ethnicities to function based on democratic and meritocratic values that are for the common good whilst also preserving their religious and ethic values. The west, where you likely reside in, have done a good job in doing this. The third world (of which Sri Lanka is part) has a lot to learn from this perspective.

        Historian,
        Demalu (aka Tamils) lived in Sinhale as invaders but most of them were chased away by Sinhala Kings. Majority of Demalu who live in Sinhale now are the descendants of Dravida slaves brought by colonial parasites.
        Sinhalayo dislike Demalu because as invaders they massacred Sinhalayo and destroyed their Kingdoms Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa. After Sinhalayo received Independence, Demalu slaughtered Sinhalayo for three decades to grab a part of the land of Sinhalayo and Vedda Eththo to create a separate State based on a bogus claim ‘Traditional Homeland’.
        Because of the barbaric acts of Demalu, Sinhalayo do not see them as friends.

        “Tamils and Sinhalese have been living in Sri Lanka for thousands of years.”

      The sad end of Mahavamsa lies is it could not name a so called Sinhala King, i.e. Wijeya’s dynasty ruling Lankawe, after Vijaya. The mythical lion cub died without children. If ever it happened that Vijaya ruled Lankawe marrying a Tamil woman, that’s all. Rest is only South Indian princes and princesses or Brahmins general like Alahakoon, but would be very few.

    I seldom read what Kumar David writes. Not because he doesn’t write well, but because, what he would say is plain obvious. He has his slant; yes, it is slanted. He has said nothing educative either.
    .
    As for me, the voting pattern was as expected. Sinhala masses are a shocking stock of sheep. Call them a herd, if you want. They live in a bubble. They see nothing beyond their noses.
    .
    Adjectives apart, what is in store for Sri Lanka … … ?
    .
    My prayer is that the bubble bursts, gently. My guess is that it would burst thunderously!

    White vans, journalists threatened, or afraid for their lives, corruption galore, nepotism, seizure of lands and property, regular attacks on minorities, Sinhala Buddhist supremacy, eroding of our laws and the Constitution, Cronyism (already here), the looting of our resources, and the aid we receive (from nations we are told keep interfering in our country), will disappear mysteriously into bank accounts (tsunami funds), and an authoritarian leadership, here we come.

    “The SLPP held on to 72% of the Sinhala-Buddhist vote and will form a strong government with MR as prime minister.”
    If you take off the entire Muslim vote base in Sri Lanka from the SJB vote base and recalculate the ‘percentage’ of Sinhalese voted for Pohottuwa could even be higher than this 72%.

      I just received an interesting analysis/observation of the recent elections and an excerpt from it:

      If you analyze the results of the general election held on 5th of August 2020, it is clear that the SLPP (Pohottuwa) has not gained any extra votes since the last presidential elections held in 2019. In fact, they have lost approximately 75,000 votes compared to 2019.

      Compared to SLPP, the main opposition party SJB (Samagi Jana Balawegaya) has lost 2.8 million votes.

      What happened to those 2.8 million votes?

      Obviously, some of the votes have gone to the other parties such as UNP, ITAK and other Tamil parties. When added up, all those smaller parties have polled a bit less than 800,000. When this amount is deducted from 2.8million the total number of votes that SJB has lost is 2 million

      The obvious reason for a such a huge loss for SJB is due to dissatisfaction and demoralisation of their voter base mainly due to divisions and poor leadership. It’s apparent a large number of voters have abstained from voting (8-10%). Also, it appeared as a significant number of people have purposely spoiled their votes (4%).

      In the 2019 presidential election 82.82% polled in the Colombo district compared to 73.94% in 2020, a reduction of 8.88%. The number of rejected votes in 2019 was 1.11% compared to 6.41% in 2020, an increase of 5.3%

          SLPP share of votes —————– 6,853,690 – 42.14%
          Electors who did not vote for SLPP 9,410,195 – 57.86%

          Where did SLPP and Clan get the absolute power?

    EC is completing its term in a few month’s time,. Before that DeshaPriyaa may retire. We have to congratulate EC for an excellent job under political pressure and COVID19 with not much support from Judiciary. We can say anything about the next EC and I certain it will be the supporters of the Gota Rajapakse family. Judiciary appointments too will ne be linked to SLPP politics. To get rid of clauses 19 and 13 is not so easy as India and many countries are watching Sri Lanka won the war against LTTE with the support of India and many countries with an understanding of a solution will be found to resolve ethnic crisis.. Sri Lanka is good at dishonoring promises. Gota says something in India and act differently in Sri Lanka. Mahinda visits Thirupathy in Adhraprdesh to get blessings. If SLPP does not care for the international community as mentioned by GLP he should know that the island’s economy and the growth in the job opportunity. depends on international trade The vindictive policy against the Muslims community will have a drastic impact on the ME labor market Finally, it boils down to the economy and COL. Singhal Buddhist policy will not improve the economy as the country depends on foreign investments

    Prof Kum’s description of the election as “sodden in Sinhala Buddhism” is ethno-religiously offensive which is far from the conduct of the learned. He chooses to forget that there were enough Non Sinhala-Buddhists too voted for the “flower-bud” party and enough of Sinhala-Buddhists voted other wise. True! This is a super majority and if the party that fielded Prof Kum as a National List nominee post him to Parliament then he too can contribute to effectively oppose that Tsunami of united opinion. Prof. Kum was one of the prime advocates for the formation of the “Yahapalana” government. Did he in quoting Abraham Lincoln then say that people will have to sit on their blisters then? NO. On the contrary I as chap who voted for them felt that I was sitting on blisters. This shows at his choosing, Prof Kum can dump the votes of a vast majority into the waste-paper basket and that is far from democracy. None of the stakeholders in lead to the Elections ever consulted the AG and can anyone in his right mind expect the AG to help at the last moment and be their mouthpiece? Prof. Kum are you fair by AG?

    We wrote many political observances. But just lets to bring back three from them. We said the Tamil saying “What way the king is, that is the way the subjects are” is not applicable to Democracy. It has to be inversed. “What the way citizens is that is the way the government is”. We brought here a poem from an anonymous Sinhala Buddhist, double crossed by a Sinhala Intellectuals, imitating Martin Niemöller. Then we said Sinhala Buddhists’ main voting pattern is anti- incumbent, not any other policy matters count. Sinhala Intellectuals use racism to turn Sinhala Buddhists as anti-incumbent of ruling government. Sinhala Buddhists rarely care or even understand what dictatorship or fascism or autocracy is. They vote in the way opposition party wants, when it says the ruling party had petted Tamils with jobs or freedom, so that it has to be undone with a Sinhala mandate and majority. In the last Local Government election, Slap Party’s campaign was there was no need for another constitution, and whether Sinhala Buddhists wanted Old Unitary or two countries as Ekkiya Rajaya? Then, in a short while, they turned around the LG campaign and got mandate for another new constitution in this election, with 2/3. Sinhalese, who voted for last 20 years to abolish EP, voted in this election to abolish 19A which curbs EP’s power, though not abolishing.

    In the last time, Chitanta Government could not finish its term, 6 years. Economy, international relation, UNHRC investigation et al was choking its neck. When only 60 % of its term was completed, instead of professional experts, Old King consulted with a brainless horoscope reader, conducted the election two years earlier and proved his guessing was right. He ran out of the TTH. When he lost his party, he was scared to be in Joint Comedy Club. Latter he was encouraged by Denesh, Lemon Puff like crooks. He was sacred to form a party. But for others agitation he appointed a worthless vegetable as his party Chairman. He refused to come to Parliament during the NCM, which was staged by his acolytes. He ordered his people not to use his portrait for LG election, though they used it and won, while he was not even a member in Slap party that time. He feared to sit on Opposition Party leader’s chair. But, because of his wife’s agitation & refusal to appear for CID investigation he took part in October Revolution, to protect her. He sat after 4 year of encouragement, on the opposition party leader’s chair. He did everything to block his brother standing for EP election. But now, he is elected PM, with unseen majority in history.

    Though Royal has got the victory they expected and it is flaring in international media, the talking point of this election for local analysts is Vaalaiththodam Jr’s clean sweep of UNP, if I can call it so. There were few even predicted that either NPP or TNA may becoming the opposition. Royal’s victory was expected though, person to person, the expected margin might have differed. SJB had only two months to invent satirical, tricky Sinhala Only title and advertise the show to the mass. Vaalaiththodam Jr too, was a not new broom, but new bridegroom, never known of his performance. So SJB’ this bullish performance was an unexpected phenomenon in this election.
    Having said that, I may have to swallow back part or most of it. We know Sinhala Buddhists vote for opposition. Here, their perception of ruling party was Ranil & his Yahapalanaya. The anti-incumbent Swingers voted to Slap Party. But the Anti-incumbent- Anti Ranil voters voted to SJB. That is why UNP is swept clean.

  • 3

    Somebody may wish to tell this attribute as UNPyers didn’t recognize Ranil as party leader, but recognizing Vaalaiththodam as the UNP leader. But it is not so. Because, (1) a substantial portion SJB is the contrition from Minority parties; they rarely stay together with one main party or even show unity within themselves. They are constantly nagging and demanding maximum perks, and if that does not working, they move away.(2)Vaalaiththodam is unlikely survive as the leader of SBJ until the term end or SJB remaining as it is. His partnership is with highly notorious hijacking minority parties. Siri Ma O, JR, and Old King kept them at the length of their whip, but Ranil let them on his bed and was easily brought down, with 4/21.

    They don’t give a specific promise to their supporter and never has to fulfill anything on their side. They turn out to be cannibals of the party keep them. They have already started their bargain with Vaalaiththodam on national list MPs demand and telling to Vaalaiththodam. They want to sit alone in parliament, because they are not happy with SJB, before even go to parliament. Unloading them from UNP is Thirupathiyan’s gift for Ranil for praying, offering with his weight of gold.

    Westham,

    One follows the majority only in decision-making related to the common good. Will you follow allow your family to adopt the majority values in the country you live in (presumably the UK) in terms of cultural values, etc.? Likely not. Similarly, you will not give up your minority Buddhist religious values in favour of the majority christian values in the country you live in. If you are not willing to give up your ethic/religious values in a country that is not the land of your ancestors, why should tamils give up their values in the land of their ancestors. Tamils and Sinhalese have been living in Sri Lanka for thousands of years.

    In this regard, minority values can be preserved. Similarly, in a modern multi-ethnic society, minority values should also be encouraged to be preserved. It is possible for different ethnicities to function based on democratic and meritocratic values that are for the common good whilst also preserving their religious and ethic values. The west, where you likely reside in, have done a good job in doing this. The third world (of which Sri Lanka is part) has a lot to learn from this perspective.

    ” what the Rajapaksas denote is what the Sinhala masses are; they gel. Despite much corruption, alleged criminality, excesses of the clan and ugly crudeness “They are us; they our ours”. This landslide election victory cannot be assimilated without sensitivity to that nexus.”

    Whatever the perception of those who voted for the Rajapakses may be, they all have expectations, importantly, Economic well being, on which they expect Delivery, sooner than later. This is the Achilles’ Heel of the Pakses. With the World Economy still reeling thanks to Covid 19, and given Mother Lanka’s dependence on the World Economy not only for Export income but also for Aid, Economic Concessions like Gsp+, Loans, Foreign Investment etc., the signs on Aid/Loans are not good with Japanese Funding requested by GR for the Underground Cable project being suspended by JICA pending Clarifications from the Government on various Economic Policies including SL’s request for Debt Moratorium from Japan.

    Immediate Economic problems are Unemployment and Sharp drop in Incomes due to the badly hit Tourism, Travel and Foreign Employment with no end in sight. These Sectors also contribute substantial Foreign Exchange. Quick solutions to these problems are NOT easy and their lies a major Test for the Pakses to keep their voters happy.

    Professor is right. His party, specifically Colvin put the foundation for this, giving a place religion in the constitution against their own slogan ‘Religion is the opium of the people’.
    His party got rid of the independent commission like public service commission.
    Such is the history of Left and Buddhism the opium that was introduced in 1973, paved the way for a Mahindas victory.

    Poor Kumar David is living in a land of his own imagination! He is constantly haunted by his own boogymen -the ‘Rajapakshas’ and ‘Sinhala Buddhists’. Thus his mind is clouded and unable to see reality. Was it not the same electorate who rejected the Rajapakshas and elected the Yahapalana with a similar thumping majority? So that was when they got their backs burnt -with a massive bond scam at the start; total inaction in the intermediate years with continually declining economic performance stagnation in all areas of development and finally paying the ultimate sacrifice of over 250 lives and hundreds injured in 5 massive bomb blasts even in spite of repeated warnings form the Indian intelligence! As a highly qualified electrical engineer could he not see the damage to the economy with not a single power plant being built over the four and half years resulting in massive haemorrhage (estimated at $100 Bn) by way of oil fired private power? So the response of the electorate is straightforward -they first elected Gota and when in just 6 to 9 months he proved extremely effective gave his party all the support he needed at the general elections. The reasons are as simple as that, but the wise Prof is clouded by his ‘Boogyman theory’ that he cannot see what the common man sees!

    (Cont.) If the wise Professor can at lease acknowledge the following achievements of Gota in the short period he would see why the same electorate that elected Yahapalana now elected the Rajapakshas:
    • The admirable response to the Covid situation when all other developed countries failed miserably
    • Taking on the drug and organized criminal elements that has plagued this country for years
    • Pulling up the public service to get to work without shirking
    • Developing an economic recovery plan with competent professionals from Viathmaga
    • Revamping the intelligence system and following up on the Easter Sunday bomb fiasco. The Prof is not concerned as his kith and kin are all overseas, but the people of this country want to live free from any threats of this nature. They have children who they send to school etc -they want a safe environment.
    So dear wise Prof, forget your Boogymen –“Rajapakshas” and “Sinhala-Buddhist mentality” and wake up to reality.

      R U serious?
      What could have been totally avoided was not but the number of infections stabilized at 200. Then there was a foul-up and it touched 700. Yet again there was another screw up and we are aiming at 3000+.
      Whose clever idea was it to use armed forces to handle a job for medical and paramedical personnel?
      We have been lucky that deaths stopped at 11.
      Perhaps we have not had the strain of the virus that struck Europe and the Americas.
      If anyone achieved anything worthwhile, it is our state medical services.

      Yes they do want to get shit done . That is establishing Chingkalla Poutha Fascist Shit and to marginalize the Thamizh and now the Thamizh Islamic Thullkans. That is the shit. Gota handled ! It was Prapakaran who handled his own destruction greatly helped by Hindia, the west , China, Islamic world and Russia. Kota had runaway to the USA as a refugee and was working as 7/11 attendant for most of the war. What about the NE regions ? TNA won outright in the entire north and still was the majority party in the Batticaloa district in the east , where they Thamizh are the outright majority. ( 78%) . Trincomallee , Amparai are ethnically mixed and others won in these two discricts

        Yes Porky, it’s good news for everyone. Minorities appear to have lost yet again, continuing a seventy year tradition. What’s with Thamizh and Poutha? Do you suffer from Asthma or have you had a stroke?

          Yes have an aversion to Chingkalla racists Kurangus like you with fake English identities. Minorities have not lost but a being killed , harassed and bullied by racist Chingkalla Kurangus like you , thanks to the British, who gave you uneducated creatures power
