UNP Monks Fire Salvo At Sajith

The Sajith faction of the United National Party was dealt a severe blow when the United Bhikku Front that recently proposed sweeping reforms to the party’s leadership structure expressed disappointment with the Hambantota District MP for causing serious damage to the UNP.

“He is causing the greatest damage to the party by collaborating with certain media organisations,” the United Bhikku Front Secretary Thiniyawala Palitha Thero told a media briefing yesterday.

Premadasa refused to sit on the Leadership Council chaired by Karu Jayasuriya claiming he could not “renege” on promises to members of the United Bhikku Front and the Maha Sangha.

Sirasa Media and the Ceylon Today and Mawbima newspapers are strongly backing Premadasa and the anti-Ranil faction that is demanding the ouster of Ranil Wickremesinghe from all positions of leadership within the Party. Premadasa is believed to have refused to sit on the Council at the behest of the proprietors of these two media organisations. Both Sirasa and the Mawbima Group have been on the rampage against Jayasuriya and the Leadership Council since its formation.

But the Bhikku Front Secretary said if Premadasa continued to refuse to be involved in the leadership council, he would have to face the consequences of that action.

“The Party will make a decision on this Sajith faction at the Party Convention on 21 December,” the monk said.

    Throw this fellow out. The Party is bigger then individuals. Besides he is not a whiz kid . He is just a power hungry individual backed by some people with hidden agendas. One of them is to reverse the current development of the country started by the Rajapakses and bring in Premadasa name into everything. This is something the country has kicked out totally.

      Sajith has lied about his qualifications and getting a degree from the London School of Economics and is NOT FIT TO LEAD the UNP or be in the Leadership council. He is uneducated, a liar and a DISGRACE and should be sacked. He thinks that just because his father was President he should be too! What a joker and moron!

      But the real tragedy is that Ranil Wickramasinghe’s dictatorship of the UNP has effectively delivered this secular and liberal and pluralist party, now on its death bed, into the hands of Buddhist monk maffia..

    UNP Monks Fire Salvo At Sajith…..
    I did not know the Great Buddha divided his Monks among the UNP, SLFP, JVP, JHU, TNA, ect.,
    This is the greatest disaster that has befallen Sri Lanka. These Clergy be they Buddhist, Catholics, Christians have taken colour and/or sides be it even the terrorists.
    All they indulge are in total contrary to what their Teacher or Master has said & how they need to follow. Interpretations of teaching are numerous to cover the colour of their doings & office.

    There is also that scum leading the Global Tamil Forum? What is he upto? Attempting to Cannonise Prabakaran?
    Yes, we could find a church in the North built by rayappu or savundranayakam someone from that group of clergy in honour of SAINT PRABAKARAN and pushing JESUS CHRIST into the back burner. That will include the names of a host of other Martyrs who who were enticed to blow themselves to smithereen.

    Did he get hurt or dead?These Sanga need to get back to their respective temples and try to improve the society.

    Leave Sajiths to Ranils.

      ThonDumbMan-Uru is speaking about monks. Obviously he is upset because the monks bravely salvo at Sajith P. Rajapaksa. When Bum-Chumpuka & his Monks and Bebadhu Balu-sena Monks played havoc this Dumb-Uru Softy highly enjoying while making pro MaRa coments.
      Since some Monks reveal facts about Sajith this man cannot digest it.
      Its a well known fact that Sajith has been a parasite for the party. Double game king Depitakattu watrer monitor from Medhamoolana days are numbered.
      You think you are a patriot flag waver just because you only and always attack three people, 1 Ranil W. + sinhala Vellala (high class) 2, Sambanthan+Tamils and 3, The Muslims. But for us you are a turncoat.
      Just enjoy Softy, for the time being, when MaRa falls you will have all the time on earth to weep!

    Oh..see how these Sinhalese Buddhists Monks talks, .. waving their hands and changing tones and gesture, very similar to usual SL politicians… These monks are supposed to be celibacy, group of people who are trying to release all attachments… Compassionate, Spiritual leaders…
    But these Sadu guys have no formal education, they have no clue why it rains, why coconuts falls down or world is not flat… Or even basic mathematics
    But they think they are gurus of economics, financial planning, politics… And want to lead people in these matters .. Bull s…t

    Ayyo these Ven. Monks playing pissu. Our king is supporting and maintaining Mr Sajith to keep UNP divided and to show the people that Ranil is a weak leader. Looks like these UNP people now realising our king hon mahinda’s hidden agenda. Some traitor from the regime must have leaked secret. Mawbima and Sirasa two great media in the country doing their best to fool the UNPers.

    Biggest damages to UNP were done by Ranil who were easily manipulated by NGO activists, western diplomats and now by marxists/leftists. Today UNP is only liberal on economic principals but on some fronts like national security UNP is only seconded to marxist three wheeler parties.

    Sajith is a selfish politician who have no interest in building up the party until he becomes the leader but trying to cover up incompetencies of Ranil using Sajith doesn’t sound credible.

    For example critical decisions regarding leadership council of UNP were taken by monks. Why would a party need a leader if it needs monks to sort out their problems?

    I think sajith better have a long talk with the monks.He can tell them all about his problems and reservations but ultimately he should listen to them and keep them on his side.He has age to his advantage and should play a patient game without antagonising these possibly powerful monks.I don’t know how much clout they have in the UNP but sajith should be careful that when the next election is a disaster they don’t blame him for it and he becomes the scapegoat for the shrewd ranil.

    Sajith thinks he inherited Presidency of Sri Lanka from his Dad. Ranil has been in the UNP largely thanks to his Uncle Junius. This is the bane of Sri Lanka. Leading parties are unable to develop talented leaders. All promising talent is suffocated by the two leading parties in SL. In order to make way for either offspring or relatives of current leaders. Skilled people with integrity shun politics. How did Ruwan Wijewardena land in UNP’s newly formed, so called leadership council? Being related to other politicians is the only qualification he has, as far as I can see. Cheers!

      Familial rule / never ending control of the levers of power by a select few families is the bane of all of South Asia. –In Pakistan you have the Bhuttos and Shariff, In India you have Nehru-Ghandi , in Bangladesh you have Sheikh and in Sri Lanka you have the Premadadas, Rajapaksas and Bandaranaikas. — South Asia will always be in a bad shape as long as people keep voting for dynasties and beleive in religion.

After few days UNP had removed the news item from its website. ……….You can be of great help to him by being his spin doctor until he wins the presidency as you too believe in the exclusive perverted Bhumiputra system.

    I believe most fellow Lankans would agree that no citizen of this country want to talk about this irrelevant individual, probably worst than his farther, a known killer, responsible for destroying tens of thousands of the younger generations in the south. Both this man and RW should go home together with the feeble old lot, permitting young dynamic leader to be born to save the country from the lawless regime.

    Who are these people with yellow robes. First and foremost they should drop the robe without insulting the ‘noble ‘sangha’.

    These people does not belongs to ‘chattari etani yugani honthi’. These robe bearers have already caused enormous damage to what Buddha taught.

    Like other citizens, these people too have equal right to engage in politics but they should shun the robe first and come, without bringing the ‘sangha hood’ to disrepute.

    Hey man, we cannot understand you! Are you saying the bastard Prabhakaran was a saint? Rayyapan, Savundranayagam and hundreds catholic priests played politics in robes! Desmond Tutu did the same! When it is not right for buddhist priests to play politics it applies to everyone including the BBS buggers and JHU.
    You are probably a schizophrenic! A split personality!

    Ranil had given lots of opportunities for sajith unfortunately sajith did not take the advantage of any of those. But all most all the time he criticize the UNP LEADER rather than work with him.
    If sajith really wanted to be the leader of the party and go beyond that he should have stick to the UNP leader.
    More than that he had misled the whole country with his FAKE EDUCATION degree from London.

    Sajith is overvaluing himself. His father, R. Premadasa (RP), of cause was a national figure which he has earned it with much labour and over time. In oratory too, though it was a mixture of slang and filth that appealed mostly the stumpy masses of the UNP , RP is far more ahead of Sajith whose public speaking lacks vigor and depth to consider him seriously by the elite. Sajith even fails to appeal the stumpy masses that his father entertained.
    It is a stupid tactic of Sajith to be a philanthropic and benevolent politician in distributing monies to temple and churches all over the country side. The god only knows from where he gets these monies to distribute which he has not yet disclosed .One cannot therefore fully dismiss what people think about the source of these monies. His father RP too had a similar dilemma of collecting monies from others and have his name inscribed in temples and shrines that built with those monies.
    Sajith who does not possessed a proper degree has projected himself as a graduate of a London University which he later acknowledged that he has not when a public exposure of it was made by Colombo Telegraph. His father RP too had a similar inferiority complex with regard to his education qualifications, his caste and schools he really attended.
    RP reigned the country with total terror with retired DIG’s and tale carriers to suppress the adversary with vengeance and his style of governance is disclosed in the aborted impeachment motion that was filed by Lalith Athulathmudali ,Gamini Dissanayake and the crowd. The people fired crackers in shy of relief on 1st of May 1993 on hearing his death though it happened by a bomb blast. Even his cabinet colleagues did not attend his dim gloomy funeral .That was the end of RP the then President in 1993.
    Those who know this gloomy era and lived in those periods never forever wish to live in another “Premadasa era” or a “JRJ era”. The younger generation should inspire from the lessons of the past
    past.

    The best thing that can happen to the UNP is the expulsion of Sajith and his lesser known followers from the party.This decsion should have been taken several years ago when the so called “reformists” surfaced.Sagith was appointed as Deputy leader of the party but was not satisfied and instead of working for the party had his own personal agenda of being the leader.His contribution in Parliament is minimal and time and time again has been requested by the Speaker to frame his questions properly when raising questions in Parliament.His only obsession has been to be the leader and to this end has sabotaged the party and its leadership supported by the Maharajas and other media.

    Discipline is the most important thing for any organisation
    EVEN FOR THE BUDDHIST TEMPLE.
    THAT WHY ONCE BUDDHA SAID
    VINAYAS-SACHA NAMO SASANAS-CHE ARUNE.

    sajith is firing from all cylinders at UNP national leader and leadership council. Unfortunately every bullets has backfire at him.
    it is very hard to believe those who work with sajith has left from him.
    buddika patirana (he ate milk rice with sajith)
    sujiiwa senasinghe ( he made BBQ with sajith)
    maithree agunaratne ( led the sirikotha attackers)
    siri lal unlucktilake ( manipulator of sirikotha attack)

    NOT ONLY SAJITH ALL THOSE WHO CREATE PROBLEMS AT UNP PARTY SHOULD BE KICKED OUT AT ANY COST.

    sajith premadasa is looking for a black cat in the dark room.

    WOW, it is nice to see that pro UNP BANTHES (Buddhist monk) are quite tough. It seems that they are tougher than Ranil.it is nice to see at least one of these BANTHE at the leadership council as a major general to overlook the party.

    UNP as a whole has be me a irrelevant political party, Rail and his stooges, Sajith Premadasa and his stooges pay a heavy penalty for abandoning the people and effectively permitting Rajapakse to destroy all democratic institutions. In my view people don’t bother what takes place within this spent force. People have been made to look for a new vibrant leader to be born to salvage the nation from grip of total lawless failed regime .

    Sajith’s mother is with the President Rajapakse as he has retained her services as an advisor. Through her Rajapakse is manipulating Sajith to make trouble in UNP. Sajith should be kicked out and he can join Rajapakse. A guy who lied about his qualification and never sat for an exam has no right to lead a country.
