      UNP Rally at Galle Face Green,

      Make an announcement that no more crooks as Ministers.

      So Ravi Penthouse will not be a Minister, but a Doorman, Doratu Palaya only for any Ministry.

        This is a rally of the Crooks and looters led by Bondscam Ranil who should be impeached for looting the Central Bank and financial crime against the people of Lanka. RW also turned parliament into a Cesspit of Corruption with SUV bribes and institutionalized a culture of impunity and immunity for corrupt politicians with his partner in Crime Mahinda Jarapassa.
        Sira may be a fool but Bondscam Ranil and his neo Con, IMF-MCC, neoliberal economic development agenda is dangerous. US marines are now in Trinco and drones gathering environmental intelligence for CIA while Lanka is being asset stripped with the Land Bank.
        Bondscam Ranil who turned the parliament into a Cesspit of corruption with his friend Mahinda Rajapakssa (who he protected for the past 3 years), must be impeached for looting the Central Bank of Sri Lanka, with his friend Mahendran, and pent house Ravi. K, before more damage is done to the Economic Rights and Land rights of people of Lanka in the name of Washington Consensus’Fake Development.
        Hope JVP will now push for Economic Justice for citizens and impeachment of Ranil for financial Crimes against people of Lanka and destruction of the most important financial Institution in the country which is also a reason for lack of FDI and the magnified Debt Trap and crashing rupee.

          Rs.11 Billion Loss from Avant guard scam. Rs 7 Billion loss from Greek Bond scam. Rs 76 Billion loss from the petroleum Corporation Hedging Deal. Rs 154 Billion Loss for the year 2004 alone from Sri Lankan Airlines. Mattala Airport white elephant. Habanthota port white elephant. Both losses calculated in Billions of Dollars not Rupees. Bond scam started with the illegal appointment of PTL as a primary dealer in contravention to the parliamentary bill passed to give such authorization state owned organizations only during Mahinda Rajapakshes time. You lying deceitful humbug.

          Sadly The President says according to the Bond scam report there was corruption at the Central Bank since 2008. That was during Mahinda’s period itself.
          Then they need to inquire before 2015 itself.

          May be he should be made Women’s Affairs Minister. He has a real affinity for women, demonstrated by his treatment of women teachers st Qatar.

      Call it a Rally for Democracy, Constitution and the rule of law.

      UNO is part of it, but not the whole story.

    What is the purpose of this rally? UNP please get back and Govern the country. The people cannot suffer anymore.

      The purpose of the rally is to rub on the hard ground the collective noses of those persons who tried to hijack the government but failed miserably and the persons who provided encouragement and moral support to them and those morally bankrupt ‘intellectuals’ who tried to justify those actions.

      This rally is to show that there are people who will stand and fight for democracy Steve. Notice how there are no bottles of arrack and biryani being handed out?

      This rally was already organized by them. And the let it go. That is it. Purpose is to thank the people.
      I thnk it should have been. Steve, it is the people that stood against the brutal Rajakashe balilge puthas and their brutal acts.

      I think had MS-RW govt spent lot more for their publicity during last 3.5 years, the general social opinion could change in favour of them. What happned was, they just save money in order pay the billions in Jan, but in the same time neglected publicity that was needed to go to grass root levels.

      “And when will Tamil political prisoners be charged or released? Just asking.”

      Here is the answer given by Hopper Sirisena:


      Prez tells UNP there is no change in his stand
      Island.lk
      December 17, 2018

      The President asked why only the military personnel who had battled the LTTE should be brought to justice over allegations against them while no action was taken against the LTTE cadres, some of whose cadres were living abroad. “If LTTE suspects have to be released, then the military personnel in custody must also be treated similarly.”

      Paul, forget about the PC elections. The financial loss for the 56 days have gobbled up most of the resources. We can have the PC elections after the Presidential and General elections in 2020. Besides why are you so keen to have PC elections, because aren’t the PCs held by the SLFP and the Pohottuwa crowd at the moment?

    Show the entire ground so that people can judge if you brought in hundreds or thousands or ten thousands. You are cunningly showing only the stage and the front of the stage. Give us an independent video; not a doctored one.
    SL political parties are well-known for their ‘honesty and integrity’.

    We have a born-again PM. The UNP rally was definitely not an arrack/rice parcel variety.
    Now for a reborn UNFGG.

    Democracy has prevailed. Let’s all work together irrespective of party politics and move forward so we can bring resolution to this crisis. The goal should be to improve the standard of living of all people instead of just a few percentage of the mass. Good luck and may the God protect this lovely country.

    Ranil is following MR in having a big victory rally. Better if he had spent the money on milk for the poor who are malnourished. Don’t expect any good governance from the UNP.

      “Better if he had spent the money on milk for the poor who are malnourished. “.

      What a shame I never saw you giving Dr Mahinda such a compassionate advice or request.
