UNP To Contest As ‘United National Front’: Decision To Be Announced At Party Convention

The United National Party has decided to contest the Parliamentary election as the United National Front to accommodate Champika Ranawaka and other ex-UPFA MPs contesting under the party ticket, Colombo Telegraph learns.

Ranil Wickremesinghe 1According to sources close to the Prime Minster Ranil Wickeremesinghe, nearly 13 ex-UPFA MPs have held discussions with the UNP to contest as a common front at the Parliamentary election against former President Mahinda Rajapaksa. The group include the large majority of SLFP stalwarts who supported President Maithripala Sirisena at the Presidential election in January. Several senior MPs who supported former President Mahinda Rajapaksa at the Parliamentary election had also held discussions to join the “good governance” front.

Among them are S.B. Dissanayake, Reginald Cooray, Piyasena Gamage and Dr. Sudarshini Fernandopully, Colombo Telegraph learns. Provincial Councilor Hirunika Premachandra, who received nominations from the UPFA is also expected to join the “good governance” front.

The theme of their election campaign will be protecting and strengthening the people’s mandate expressed at the residential election on January 08.

The new alliance will be announced at the UNP convention scheduled to take place today in Colombo. The ‘good governance’ will have a meeting with Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe tomorrow morning, before the UNP convention, the party sources told Colombo Telegraph.

Political sources said the UPFA group had already informed President Maithripala Sirisena of their decision.

The UNP has already decided to contest the election under its traditional symbol ‘elephant’. Therefore, the new group too will have to contest under the elephant symbol of the UNP.

Political observers say President Maithripala Sirisena will be compelled to support the good governance front at the Parliamentary election as all his close supporters have aligned themselves with the UNP-led alliance.

      I can understand MY3’s present state.
      If he does the flip flop due to fear for his life no one can blame him, but only sympathise with him.
      However if the reason was due to a bribe by the Chinese as alleged, ine should nrever forgive him.

    A National Govt. as promised, for the next two years is the best remedy for Sri Lanka.
    How on earth can Voters ever consider a Rajapakse, after reading what the Sinhala
    Intelligentsia had to say last January, as below.. MS & RW have a committed plan and
    they have nothing to loose, come a Rajapakse or not:-

    (Statement by the United Front Of The Peradeniya University Lectueres And Alumni)
    or here if your a lazy to read: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kwFRgMySYBs

    ” Friends, time has come to educate one another about the massive corruption that happens in Sri Lanka under the Present Regime. The Executive has taken the lead in this process resulting in massive debt, virtually mortgaging our mother land to foreign countries. Each individual and even the unborn in Sri Lanka owes close to Rs 400,000.00 as debt to China and other lending agencies. Country is in the threshold of bankruptcy. Today more than 50% parliament members have not even passed the O/L examination. Present regime has no respect for education. Country’s development could be achieved only by educating people. We emphasise that more than 6% of the GDP need to be allocated for education, which the emerging new leadership has promised. Hence we strongly feel that the present regime should be removed for a more thoughtful, compassionate and considerate leadership to take reins to spearhead this beautiful nation to be a DEVELOPED NATION devoid of corruption, family favouritism and protected independent Judiciary. This Government ……… 1. Promised that the presidential system will be repealed, in the “Mahinda Chinthanaya”, instead extended the number of times a president could contest from two times to unlimited. 2. Robbed around 95 Million LKR from the “Tsunami” fund ( Helping Hambantota ) donated by the Japanese government. This was his first political robbery apart from what he made as the Minister of Fisheries. 3. Let all the ministers of his cabinet to rob at their will, hence he could blackmail them. He turned a blind eye when his Prime Minister imported Drugs and few members of his cabinet importing illegal ethanol and drugs. 4. Alienated the country towards China resulting in India developing bitterness with Sri Lanka. 5. Obtained loans from China at rates higher than Libor (London Interbank Offered Rate) to earn commissions. These commissions in billions were routed to Swiss bank accounts via Seychelles, where MR opened a branch of Bank of Ceylon and also an Embassy in a country where only 92000 thousand people live. Sri Lankan airline flies to Seychelles. 6. Built a port where no ships come. Air Port where no Airplanes land. He made billions of commissions doing these projects. 7. Made money building Roads : The cost per km of the Outer Circular Highway from Kadawatha to Kerawalapitiya financed by China is US$ 56 m(Rs.7.3billion) This cost is three times higher than the Kottawa Kaduwela extension of the Southern Highway financed by Japan ,which is Rs.2.4 billion per km. 8. The cost per km of Extension of the Southern Highway from Mattala to Hambantota will cost Rs.2.14billion, whereas per km cost of the Southern Highway cost only Rs.975m 9. Bid price of A9 road was Rs.140 m per km when the departmental estimate for an A class road was Rs. 20m. 10. Construction of the Norochchole Coal Power Project was awarded to a well- established Chinese contractor at US$280.00M in 2005 by the previous regime. Soon after present regime came into power it cancelled the contract and awarded it to another inexperienced Chinese firm at US$520 million-almost double the previous price. Plant is inoperative even after 2years of completion. 11. On a dispute between Essential Services Commissioner and Asset Maritime (Pvt) Ltd arbitrator-a retired High Court Judge awarded Rs.600,000.00 as compensation to the company. A Committee appointed by the President on the intervention of the First Lady awarded Rs.180 million to this company owned by Dhammika Perera and Nishantha Wickramasinghe- latter being a brother of First Lady. 12. Due to the ill-conceived Hedging deal of the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation headed by Asantha de Mel (a person connected to the political establishment) lost Rs. 230 billion in2007. No one has been held accountable for huge loss of public funds. 13. Failed to initiate investigations on 29 journalists murdered or disappeared. Lasantha W, Pradeep Eknaligoda 14. Failed to initiate investigations into the deaths of Members of Parliament 1. Raviraj and one other. 15. Appointed 38 numbers of the Presidents family and extended family, to diplomatic missions. 16. Turned a blind eye on losses at Mihin Air to the tune of 6-8 Billion, made by his closest buddy Sajin vas Gunawardane who had been criminally charged previously. He appointed his brother in Law Nishantha Wickramasinghe to Sri Lankan Airlines who has no formal education and made losses to the tune of Rs 70 billion to date. 17. Influenced the judiciary to President’s benefit. Impeached the 43rd Chief Justice for no reason. Makes judicial appointments to his benefit. 18. Allows Presidents children to play (Car races) on the streets of Colombo at their will by closing roads. He over ruled Mahanayake Theroes to hold car races for his children in Kandy town. 19. Failed to nominate Election, Police, Public Service and Judicial services commissions. 20. Udayanga Weeratunga – Sri Lankan Ambassador to Russia. Cousin of President Rajapakse. Accused of involving in a shady deal to purchase MIG Fighters for the Sri Lankan Air force. 21. Paid 700.00Million rupees to Prabhakaran to purchase weapons to kill innocent Sinhalese using Karuna Amman who is now a deputy Minister and a Vice President of the SLFP. He uses Kumar Pathmanathan alias LTTE arms dealer to his personal benefit. 22. How Karuna was sent to London “ On August 30, 2007 the Department of Immigration and Emigration issued a diplomatic passport number D1944260 in the name of “Kokila Dushmantha Gunawardena” whose occupation on the passport was given as Director General of Wildlife Conservation. The photograph on the passport was that of Karuna Amman. The Department of Immigration, it is pertinent to note, comes under the Ministry of Defence, Public Security, Law and Order of which Gotabaya Rajapakse is Secretary and President Rajapakse the Minister”. 23. Failed to conduct an impartial inquiry into killing of around 43 prisoners at the Welikada Prison. 24. Did nothing to improve the economy and failed to introduce workers charter. Economy in shambles. 25. Arranged for his son to sit for the Law exams in an isolated air-conditioned room, away from the other candidates. 26. Killed protesters in Rathupaswala (8), Free Trade Zone (1) and Chilaw (4). He used maximum force on all protestors.”

      Punchinilame

      United Front Of The Peradeniya University Lectueres And Alumni says

      ” Paid 700.00Million rupees to Prabhakaran to purchase weapons to kill innocent Sinhalese using Karuna Amman who is now a deputy Minister and a Vice President of the SLFP.”

      Have they conveniently forgotten that LTTE killed innocent Tamils and Muslims as too. Or have they forgotten Tamils and Muslims too live in this island?

      Nowhere in this laundry list of atrocities we read even a cursory mention of the war crimes and crime against humanity.

      What else do you expect from men/women who are void of honesty (leave alone intellectual honesty)?

    This is indeed good news to come up with a United Front for Good Governance, against the Mahinda Rajapaksa and his cronies, the Liars, Crooks, robbers, thieves, bribe takers,Criminals and traitors.

    Time to bury the Liars, Crooks, robbers, thieves, bribe takers,Criminals and traitors.

    P.S. Mairipals Sirisena seem to have joined Mahinda Rajapaksa and his cronies, the Liars, Crooks, robbers, thieves, bribe takers,Criminals and traitors, UNLESS he makes a U-TURN and make Mahiinda Rajapaksa and his cronies to contest independently.

      Even at this late hour a genuine and serious anti-Rajapakse National Front – or whatever you call it – contesting the General Election may be one step to prevent the Govt falling into the rapacious hands of a
      group of established criminal plunderers. For this to succeed in our degenerate political landscape those who are for freedom, as opposed to the recent misadventure of the fascistic gang that went as
      SLFP-oriented, you need aboard both nationally respected activist Buddhist priests as well as Born-Again Sinhala supremacists from the extreme. This, of course, includes the once anti-Tamil and anti-Indian
      JVP that has since splintered but the surviving blocs are refreshingly free of their earlier racial prejudices. I use the term Born Again to mean a total release from the
      earlier anti-Tamil, anti-Christian, anti- racial-religious prejudices of both groupings. These, it may be remembered, have been, if I may be refer to them as the National Curse since 1956. Even to those who may stridently disagree with my views, remember this is one feature that ensured the anti-Rajapakse victory of January 08 against a dictator who thought the entire oppositioncan be bought over “with a cup of tea and a Hoppers Dinner” as he then confidently claimed.

      I have commented earlier that the once anti-Tamil racial-religious bigots from both sectors gradually ridding themselves of their prejudice in recent times is good for the country. This has brought the reality of real National Reconciliation closer – though it is still a long road ahead. Racial-religious prejudices engineered and nurtured from early school hood in the Sinhala South is not going to wither away easily. The relaxation came by, arguably, by the massive resistance put forward by militancy of the armed Tamil groups – that went on for over 3 decades. Yet another issue that the UNP should seriously address is that, even today, the masses in the Sinhala South consider the UNP a party

      (1) dedicated only to cater the interest of the rich classes

      (2) is still under the influence of various factions of the Christian churches, whose Agenda they perceive to be necessarily anti-Buddhist

      (3) still has a strong tilt towards the Tamil community in different ways. This fear, at any rate, is absolutely foolish and unreal.

      (4) is seriously influenced by Western countries and their global political Agenda

      While item (4) is subject to healthy debate items 1, 2, 3 are definitely untrue today. But the propaganda machinery of Sinhala chauvinism has somehow captured the imagination and consciousness of the Buddhist Sinhala masses. It is astonishing the propaganda apparatus of the UNP has not addressed this issue seriously at all.
      The UNP has failed to educate the Sinhala masses that there is a world of difference between the UNP of 1956 and today. There is much the UNP has done for the Buddhist Sinhala masses but the message
      has not resonated sufficiently in their minds – particularly during times of crucial elections. The UNP must do some serious re-thinking here – particularly because now they have a fairly large section of the politically influential Buddhist priesthood in sympathy and supportive of them. This influential section of our country clearly has now understood the reality in the ground and appreciates National Unity and Reconciliation cannot be achieved unless the Tamils, Muslims, Burghers and others are made to feel they are equal Stake- holders in a future Sri Lanka – irrespective of whether it is under a unitary or any other arrangement.

    RE: UNP To Contest As ‘United National Front’: Decision To Be Announced At Party Convention

    From the Grape wine… see what CBL told to the face of the Traitor Maitripala Sirisena.

    Chandrika scolds the record breaking betrayer to the face “ your betrayal is going to create a blood bath

    ‘Maithri , because of your betrayal the country is headed for a bloodbath. Had I ever known that you would become such a traitor, I would not have made you common candidate,’ said an ex president of the country Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunge who was justifiably enraged at the record breaking betrayal committed by Pallewatte Gamaralalalge Maithripala Sirisena . The indignant ex president berated the most uncouth unconscionable betrayer of all times in this manner before leaving for London yesterday night in utter disgust.

    Pallewatte Gamarala who reached new milestones in his hypocritical and traitorous ambitions , while profusely lying to all the leaders ,and most unconscionably cheating on the people of the country, and those who made supreme sacrifices to elevate him to the exalted position of president, in the end committed a betrayal which put even Biblical Judas in the shade going by the ruthlessness , inequity , shamelessness and absolute hypocrisy packed in this most egregious historic betrayal committed by this local ‘ Judas’ . Biblical Judas receieved what he desired from his betrayal – filthy lucre but went literally mad. Our local Judas also got what he wanted – filthy lucre , but in the case of this Judas the ‘bogus’ opportunist out and out , it is the nation that reposed faith in him had been driven mad by him.

    This local Judas after committing this historic betrayal behaved like a trapped mouse unable to utter a word in his defense while listening to Chandrika’s angry tirade lasting about an hour .

    Chandrika who left for London unable to bear any more the doom and gloom looming over the country folowing this unimaginably monumental betrayal committed by no less a person (local Judas though) than the highest in the hierarchy of the country sent a communique from London.

    On the 5 th , Maithripala gave an undertaking at Chandrika’s residence that the corrupt will not be granted nominations.Based on that she handed over a list of names of candidates who are not tainted by corruption to Miathripala by the 7 th. Yet , on that night of betrayal our local Judas like Biblical Judas who also chose a night to commit the historic betrayal, even after agreeing and deciding not to grant nominations to 33 corrupt candidates ,cast that list into the garbage bin ,giving preference to the list of corrupt candidates including Rajapakses , discarding Chandrika’s request.

    Thereafter , a list of 12 corrupt individuals was presented . But even after requesting to discard this list , and do a cleansing of the party , this Pallewatte Gamarala , now better known as the local Judas only held back four names from the nomination list.

    They are Sajin Vaas Gunawardena ,Duminda Siva, Mervyn Silva and Sarana Gunawardena . The last attempt to purge the SLFP that was built by the Bandaranaikes ,of the corrupt and undesirable was throttled by Maithri .

    It is well to recall , some time ago , Maithri’s wife said ‘ if we give nominations to Rajapakses , I will have to leave home.’ Now , the turn has come to the people to watch whether she will leave home .

    In another great betrayal fictional scenario ,when Julius Caesar was stabbed by his closest friend Brutus along with his enemies , collapsing Caesar in shock exclaimed ‘et tu Brutus’(you too Brutus). In Sri Lanka in this greatest , another factual betrayal scenario, when the people were betrayed by their very leader who made grandiose pledges to them to win their votes, only to stab them in the back within just 180 days of capturing power , the people wilting in disappointment exclaiming , ‘you too bloody brute’ is justifiable

    All democratic forces must unite to defeat Ali Baba and his 40 thieves. It is heartening to hear that more and more political parties and former UPFA parliamentarians are joining with the UNP. I hope the JVP will do the same.

    Good News. This move could isolate the rogues and hopefully people will vote for the `lesser corrupt’ lot.

    Let us hope that the UNP, if elected, will do a better job than the past six months. We assume that they will not have a central bank governor of a different nationality and not engage in unscrupulous scams such as the treasury bond saga.

    If the rogues get elected after this arrangement it will be a sad reflection of the majority of Sri Lankan voters’ mentality.

    UNP was adamant that they will contest with the symbol ‘green elephant’ … What’s happening to this grand old nationalistic party after taken by anti nationalistic people like Ranil, Ravi, Kotyialle, Mangala …?
    It needs some more of their breed like Rajitha, Arjuna, Hirinika to strengthen the anti nationalistic tendency …. People like Champaka, Rathana H, vel vel vel vidane who has no place to go must try their loving anti nationalistic party, UNP …. It’s not a surprise at all …

    Surprise for me is that how these boasters are shivering without control regarding the nomination of MR … What a brave lot!
    Some were boasting on 8th of January that MR was buried under 6 feet and concreted all 6 feet above …
    Resurrection of MR was unbelievable and no where else in the world had seen this kind of resurrection within few months …

    What happened to all these brave talk of burying MR by the napunsaka crowd!!!
    Lesson is that people could be taken for a ride for few days, few months … But, not for more than 6 months ….

    A logical development in the current circumstances. It was also an expected outcome. The proof of the pudding will be in the eating!

    What was the role of MS in this development? I suspect he has played a role in engineering this conclusion. Whether it was intensional or unintentional; direct or indirect, will be understood in time.

      Yes President Sirisena the ungrateful Sinhala Buddhist politician from Pollonoruwa made a huge contribution in forcing many Pro Sinhala Buddhist- Anti Rajapakse forces to join the UNP. Creating the alliance and UNF like in December 2001 is a positive sign and they all have done it for a few reasons.

      Primarily they all want to stick and hold on to power. Look at the names… Rajitha Senaratna, Arjuna Ranatunge, M K D S Gunawardene, Sarath Amunugama, Champika Ranawaka, Duminda Dissanayake, Reginald Cooray, Mahinda Samarasinghe just to name a few.

      Then we have the Muslims like Rauf Hakeem, Rishard Bathurdeen, and others.

      (Rajitha Senaratne, Hirunika Premachandra, Arjuna Ranatunga, Sudarshani Fernandopulle, Hemal Gunasekera, Neomal Perera, M.K.D.S. Gunawardana, Wijaya Dahanayake, Earl Gunasekara, Sarath Amunugama, and Duminda Dissanayake have reportedly not signed UPFA nominations as of yet).

      2.The fear of Moses has been instilled on all above that if Rajapakses win they are all done for good. Especially The Fonsekas, Hirunikas, Mangala, and all CBK’s cronies whom she brought into politics from 1994. That is finally a good thing for the UNF and the country. They will bring in a substantial amount of votes in each electoral district to make a difference of 2-3 seats with the bulk vote in the PR System, including the bonus seats and more to the National List.

      So will the TPA alliance who will bring in about 20 seat difference including the 5 or 6 seats of theirs. So there will be 3 Tamil TPA Ministers if the UNF wins which is still very much in doubt.

      3. The minorities including the TNA will support the The UNF to form the next government since they do not want the Rajapakses to destabilize the country and ruin it. President Sirisena has lost all credibility and respect he had both nationally and internationally. He will begin his lame duck administration after August 17th Parliamentary elections. BBS and JVP/JHU also should get some credit for this alliance.

      The Tamils with their 20-22 MP’s will certainly hold the balance of power in Parliament thanks to Sirisena’s political stupidity, ingratitude, insincerity and lack of courage to say NO to the Rajapakses.

      It is a disgrace and a calamity for the President and the country.

        Dear Uncle Donald

        Good to see your long oration twice on this CT forum. In addition to the blood presuure pills, are you on some sort of other drug for short memory lost to send the oration twice. It may be natural to your age.

        You look very disappointed with Yahapalana President My3 the so-called saviour of minorities. Well!!!!!!!!!!!!!well!!!!!!!!uncle. Did I tell you this before? I can remember you wrote a very long love letter in January this year to fellow CT readers how good about your YahaPalana (actually it has been Gava Palana) lead by your sole mate donkey UNP leader.

        What has been happening now? When are you going to achieve your “Peelum La-la Land”? Can Pimpysinghe the greatest traitor of Sri Lankan history deliver this? It was almost achieved once when the pimpy was running a broth government with Wishkey madam.

        Please be careful, do not count the chooks before the eggs hatch. Otherwise it would be another big nutted Billy Goat story and a hard working foxy (ie. the Peelum Thamil Nation)

        My suggestion to you is to pack up your bags and get ready to catch the last flight from KIA just before the election day. The coming colour is no good. Majority of Sri Lankans do not enjoy this Gava-Palana Pickle anymore and the our modern King Dutu Gamunu is brushing his teeth nicely to serve you and other self-claimed intellectual separatists in a big time.

        Do not forget to collect some good all blessing from the Bis-hope of Mannar (the chosen saviour of the Christ) as early as possible. His cloak still have the smell of the virgin Marry as he was trying to smuggle her to a safe place during monkey LTTE X’mas fireworks.

        Keep enjoying pressure controlling pills.

        Your ever loving

          Sinhala Yakko, Booruwa, Gonna BANDA,

          No wonder you buggers are in such a pathetic State.
          It is my fellow citizens the R Brothers who will have to pack up, Run and Hide. It won’t be me.

          I will stay here and challenge them, Wimal Weerawansa, Gamanpillas who are all absolute lying, corrupt crooks.

          Anyway, let them be worried about their safe passage out of the country or walk into jail and bail into a hospital. The safety and security that was promised on the 9th of January 2015 are all out of the window. Even if they run the US Government will fulfill their responsibilities and obligations regarding their own War Criminals, since the DOJ have full jurisdiction of their own citizens.

          They also have the US courts which are independent. Wait for the UNHRC resolution on the 22nd of August where they will name names and voting after 3 weeks. That will be fun. Weerawansa can go on another Boru Fast and feed on his Lemon Puffs and American Pizza secretly. lol.

          Unlike last time in December 2014, they cannot try the white vanning and deportation tricks again… on me.

          But the last 48 hours have been very successful for the UNP which has now become UNF. There are nearly 2 dozen MP’s from the SLFP has left the SLFP and are lining up outside Sri Kotha to ask for nominations from Ranil. There are a few good/popular candidates who will be able to bring in a fair size of the Sinhala Buddhist votes to the UNF. Even Fonsekas are joining the UNP and Field Marshall Fonseka is contesting Rajapakse from Kurunegala where there are plenty of RanaViru Voters. Even Velicha Wattaka is trying to jump ship if he is accepted which is very very doubtful. So are Karuna, and Douglas. lol.

          UNF has even stopped taking any more applications from midnight today.

          Anyway, January 2015 was a Presidential elections and Sirisena was useful in completing that task. This is a Parliamentary elections and it is a slightly different ball game where the rules are also different. The goals are also different.

          Nevertheless, Ranil will be the next PM with the help of the minority Tamil speaking MP’s and them bringing in the bonus seats, and more national list MP’s thanks to the PR system.

          So go and chew that bone in your dirty corner.

          As for double entry, it is a technical issue with CT which will be corrected by their tech desk. You don’t have to worry your little head about it.

            Dear Uncle Donald

            Thanks for the complementary name callings.

            Why are you so upset and lost your control in your reply. Such behaviours are very bad for a heart patient and also parson with a dementia. I was not sure why your Sinhalese sheila put up with you for that long with your these sort of stupid behaviours. As I indicated to you in one of my previous CT address to you, you Thamil buggers are hard to please even you Sinhalese Sheila wife would support that observation. You self-claimed leader of Thamil Peelum should not behave like a mad bull but be set a example for your future and other Peelum podians.

            The great internet LTTE terra warrior like you with proven track records of collecting monies for the most ruthless terrorist organisation LTTE, should not be shaken by a person like me with a little brain. So take it easy. When time comes, you will be in the queue before anybody else in Hague for the good and colourful activites that you contributed for last 30 odd years for all human calamities happened in Sri Lanka. If Hague is not going happen so, please be relaxed and enjoy few more years before the final call from your great leader son goat Podian Preba from the everlasting hell. It was bit pity that you could not join him at the same time wih a nice Nandikhadal mud bath before attain to the Enlightment with your beloved leader monkey Preba.

            Keep enjoying your stay in Sri Lanka for few more weeks because your dream and your above fortune telling will never be a reality on August 17th.

            With that I wind up this short noteand may Mannar Bis-hope bless you for few more troubleless years.

              [Edited out]Sinhala Banda,

              You seem to be another coward of a Moron hiding behind some bush and barking like a Paria Horry dog of low breeding.

              I have no idea WTF your mother, sister or daughter (if you have any) to comment about, with some choosy words as your back ground suggests. Anyway,, I have no interest whatsoever, to talk about the females in your life since you are ab absolute nobody, and I do not read all the comments what buggers like you say about me.

              I care a F…….. what you say.

              But A Holes like you once in a way need to be told and put in the cages you belong. I am operating within the law and as per rules and regulations both in Sri Lanka, USA and worldwide unlike the Rajapakses and other Sinhala politicians. If the Tamil politicians or quisling groups have done anything wrong including my friends I had exposed them or criticized them in public. I am not a hypocrite like many.

              As for my health, I am very well Thank You. Like an idiot you thought that I was a heart, high blood pressure and high cholesterol patient suffering from dementia. You are so bloody freaking wrong. I am fine and also in very good shape much lower weight than my 6 foot body frame needs to hold as the doctors suggest for my age. In other words I am not a fat pig like the Sinhalese politicians or even their women. I do not want to name names but you fellows have seen the photos and they look also like Vel Carts. You have seen the real photos of Mahinda Rajapakse which was exposed by Apsara Tilkeratne the cricketer’s wife. Google it where Rajapakse’s bulging stomach is exposed. I hate to see ……….. real photos. OMG.

              How about the politicians who are suffering from severe diarrhea where they need to be hospitalized for weeks when they get arrested for bribery and corruption. And others like Gotabaya Rajapakse who are evading arrest, thanks to the begging they did via their brother Mahinda R with Ranil in the early hours of the 9th January 2015. All those deals are out of the window now, and wait until August 17th after the elections and UNHRC report when the screws will be really tightened on SL immaterial who the damn Prime Minister is.

              God forbid if the Sinhala Buddhist voters decide to foolishly vote to elect Mahinda Rajapakse as the PM. They are fully capable of performing Moda and moronic acts like they did in 1956, 1960, 1970, 2000, and 2005/2010. Of course in 2005 Mahinda Rajapakse bribed the LTTE via Emilkanthan and the help of Basil, Mangala and Tiran Alles to be installed in power and ruin Sri Lanka.

              They all should be prosecuted together with KP, Karuna, Pillaiyan and Emilkanthan for such illegal acts.

              Immaterial of the election results, I am in Sri Lanka legally, and I have the right to be here. So I would not be leaving any time in the future. Unlike Basil Rajapakse and Gota who ended up in jail, or will do so soon both in Sri Lanka and the USA. They all can run but not keep hiding from the law for ever. Justice will certainly catch up, although it is delayed. Wheels of Justice turns very slowly in this world.

              Weerawansas and Gammanpillas are no better with their LIES and Fraudulent acts.

              My main concern is that Sri Lanka does not become a Zimbabwe, Uganda (Idi Amin), Sudan, Libya, or Syria. or even Greece due to mismanagement by the likes of the Rajapakse clan, or Sajin Vaas Gunawardene and the KUDU SILVAS. Don’t you forget that this country belongs to the Tamils as well, despite the fact that more than 1 Million Tamils have been forced to leave, and over 100,000 Tamils murdered in just 2009 alone. This beats the record of Idi Amin by the dictator named Mahinda Rajapakse.

              Be warned that the international community including PM Modi from India are closely watching the happenings in Sri Lanka now, and they will act strongly with the culprits which will sadly effect the economy of the whole country.

              [Edited out]Banda, don’t step out of line. You idiot. Stick to the subject matter of the article, you moron.

                Dear Uncle Donald

                Just clam down Uncle!!!!!!!!. Why are you jumping up and down? What made you so angry being a so-called wise Thamil leader. It is an insult to your great Thamil naton being so abusive to a junior like me.

                Apart from you, who did actually fund the LTTE morans? Now you start blaming your masters like KP, Karuna, Pillian and others? I can recall your former love letters to CT forums about their braveness and other qualities. You are spraying like a loose cannon blaming all those. You are only one innocent and all other LTTE goons are culprit. You have collected money over last 30 odd years to kill innocent people in Sri Lanka.

                You are baldy mistaken my dear!!!! Hindians and your western masters have tricked you many occasion in last 30 odd years during your Peelum struggle. You believe that Moda Modi is the new saviour of your great Thamil nation. It reminds me the story of billy goat with large nutts again.

                Please do not hide your sickness and pains in joints. Dementia is a common thing for your age. such condition is supported with your long term memory lost. Is it a deliberate for your survival to avoid joining the Hague queue?

                By the why you start blaming Battcha Mongal now? He is planning to give your Peelum on boy’s back.

                Thanks once again for your reply. Your name will be written in blood in Thamil history as one of the founders of LTTE, the greatest terra organisation in the world.

                Please pay your last visit to Mannar Bis-hope for good blessing few more years before 17th of August because I don’t want to see you behind the bars for the merits collected over last 30 odd years.

                Your ever loving Sinhala Banda.

      CT article: https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/unp-to-contest-as-united-national-front-decision-to-be-announced-at-party-convention/

      Yes President Sirisena the ungrateful Sinhala Buddhist politician from Pollonoruwa made a huge contribution in forcing many Pro Sinhala Buddhist- Anti Rajapakse forces to join the UNP. Creating the alliance and UNF like in December 2001 is a positive sign and they all have done it for a few reasons.

      Primarily they all want to stick and hold on to power. Look at the names… Rajitha Senaratna, Arjuna Ranatunge, M K D S Gunawardene, Sarath Amunugama, Champika Ranawaka, Duminda Dissanayake, Reginald Cooray, Mahinda Samarasinghe just to name a few.

      Then we have the Muslims like Rauf Hakeem, Rishard Bathurdeen, and others.

      (Rajitha Senaratne, Hirunika Premachandra, Arjuna Ranatunga, Sudarshani Fernandopulle, Hemal Gunasekera, Neomal Perera, M.K.D.S. Gunawardana, Wijaya Dahanayake, Earl Gunasekara, Sarath Amunugama, and Duminda Dissanayake have reportedly not signed UPFA nominations as of yet).

      2.The fear of Moses has been instilled on all above that if Rajapakses win they are all done for good. Especially The Fonsekas, Hirunikas, Mangala, and all CBK’s cronies whom she brought into politics from 1994. That is finally a good thing for the UNF and the country. They will bring in a substantial amount of votes in each electoral district to make a difference of 2-3 seats with the bulk vote in the PR System, including the bonus seats and more to the National List.

      So will the TPA alliance who will bring in about 20 seat difference including the 5 or 6 seats of theirs. So there will be 3 Tamil TPA Ministers if the UNF wins which is still very much in doubt.

      3. The minorities including the TNA will support the The UNF to form the next government since they do not want the Rajapakses to destabilize the country and ruin it. President Sirisena has lost all credibility and respect he had both nationally and internationally. He will begin his lame duck administration after August 17th Parliamentary elections. BBS and JVP/JHU also should get some credit for this alliance.

      The Tamils with their 20-22 MP’s will certainly hold the balance of power in Parliament thanks to Sirisena’s political stupidity, ingratitude, insincerity and lack of courage to say NO to the Rajapakses.

      It is a disgrace and a calamity for the President and the country.

    What a beauty…..

    Monk and the Abiththaya along side Surendran, Mahendran , and even Hakeem and Baththudeen

    And the old Red Shirt Somawansa..

    Duminda Silva and , Mervyn Silva have expressed their interest too.

    This is what I call genuine reconciliation to give us Yahapalanaya.

    Wonder why TNA and TPA are keeping mum?..

    The SLFP is today a party of corrupt criminals, led by Mahinda Jarapassa an uneducated criminal thug.

    The SLFP as a leading political party in Lanka is finished – dead and buried it will be at the next general election and the whole country knows this! Actually the SLFP and UNP are all political parties are full of corrupt thugs.. but SLFP is worst.

    At the same time, Civil society must work hard to educate the the Sinhala masses and voters that the SLFP is a party of UNEDUCATED AND CORRUPT thugs led by the Criminal Mahinda Jarapassa.

    It is astonishing that SIrisena has not fought to rescue the SLFP from the criminal Rajapakse and is actually accepting his nomination papers rather than refusing as the party leader to sign off on letting Jarapassa run! Shame on Sirisena.

    The UNP will lead a winning RAINBOW COALITION of parties to drive out the Corrupt Mahinda jarapassa led-SLFP. Let’s hope Sobitha Thero steers the good governance movement to keep the UNP’s rainbow coalition on track.

    The point is Maithree Sirisena has been very partisan and weak and NOT independent. He is trapped in and part of the corrupt political culture and politicians that are a curse on Sri Lanka.

    If Maitri was genuinely WISE and INDEPENDENT he should have sacked Ranil’s Clown Arjuna Mahendran from the Central Bank and refused to let Mahinda Jarapassa get nomination from the SLFP. Mahinda and the entire SLFP party hierarchy is corrupt and splitting the SLFP is the only way to rescue the party and free it from the scurge of Rajapaksa cronism and corruption. Sirisena is clearly a weak fool.

    Ranil briefed the old boys of Royal and Thomas on thursday at Siri Kotha. Will Champika and Senaratne also put themselves into a category to briefed by the “Leader” ? I dont think so .

    UNP & Ranil already on the winning path and these additional alliances is going to boost the total votes. There was a time MR was destroying UNP by buying over MPs and now it is his turn to face the music of defeat. Further, with no use of state media, resources, large cut outs he is already feeling the heat. Even now, it is not too late but to withdraw from the contest and enjoy the life as a retired person.

    Now is the time for the stupid, cunning,selfish idiot Mavai Senathi to leave politics or people have to teach him a lesion, this is not the time to play his dirty politics he should have given a place for Ananthi whose family sacrificed everything for Tamils. If old man Sambanthan have no guts to stop that dirty man’s cunning work, he has to leave way for the younger generation to lead the country in a correct way. All in all people have to reject Thamilarasu kadsi completely this time and give a chance to Gajendakumar and he have to absorb Ananthi, Viki and other good people and form a strong group for the future. All in all because of Sambanthan and idiot Mavai , Tamils votes are going to scatter and push Tamils into a deep grave. Only person who can rectify using brain is Viki – the huge responsibility is here in front of Viki – God save Tamils, good leaders and our country. MR is adamant to go to the international court, thanks to Mithiri for encouraging him- bad time is blocking his eyes, no body can stop his fate.

    Bruno Umbato,

    Correct , you are 100% correct. No where in the world we can see people like srilankans. We are all very proud of our unique identity, which is super class modias – politicians can use us which ever way they need – excellent talent, but we can’t even produce a straight nail on our own. Until people like me and you exist MR will not hesitate to ruin the country without any fear – well done mate, well done.

    90% of SRILANKANS WITH PEA BRAINS HOW CAN THEY REVOLT AGAINST MASS BRIBERY CORRUPTION MURDERS AND THUGGERY NO FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION WHITE VANS STATE FUNDS PILFERED AND THE LIST GOES ON.

    THEY JUST SIT AND TALK AND WHEN THEY ARE ORDERED TO GO AND VOTE THEY DO WITHOUT USING THE PEA NUT BRAINS.

    THESE CRAFTY POLITICIANS HAS HAD CUSHY LIFE BY MANIPULATING THE MASSES FOR THE LAST 63 YEARS.

    THIS GREEDINESS OF THESE POLITICIANS STARTED BY THE HONOURABLE. SWRD.

    THEN GREED GOT TO MEGA GREED DURING THE LAST REGIME BY THE FAMILY OF JARAPASSA.

    THE MASSES DID NOT BLINK? WHY ?? WAS IT THE FEAR OF THE RELIGION OF SUBJUGATION?? FEAR OF THE POWERFUL FAMILY ? THE FATHER THE SONS THE WIFE, THE BROTHERS THEIR WIVES CHILDREN AND THE EXTENDED FAMILIES TOO PILFERED THE STATE, WHY WHY WHY WAS IT ALRIGHT TO ALLOW SUCH THUGGERY??
    THE RELIGIOUS LEADERS TOO SHOULD TAKE THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR ALLOWING THESE TO CONTINUE. THEN SOME OF THE RELIGIOUS LEADERS FOLLOWED THESE ILL TRODDEN PATHS AS THE SAME AS THE CORRUPT POLITICIANS.

    THE POOR MAN SAT AND PRAYED.
    LOOK AT THE EGYPTIANS UP IN ARMS AGAINST THE POWER THEIR PM IS BEGGING FOR MERCY FROM THE UPRISED EGYPTIANS.

    SOMEHOW SOMETHING HAPPENED ON THE 8TH OF JANUARY A REVOLUTION IN SL BUT IT WAS ONLY SHORT LIVED.

    SEE THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH ENJOYED BY ALL SINCE THEN, NO FEAR OF WHITE VANS.

    WE NEED A COUNTRY WITH SELFLESS EDUCATED POLITICIANS TO STEER THE COUNTRY IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.
    RETURN OF THOSE PILFERED WEALTH PUT THE CROOKS IN PRISON THEN WE CAN ENJOY A COUNTRY WITH ALL GLORY.
    RETURN OF LITERACY HEALTH OF THE NATION IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE INFRASTUCTURE.

    WHY DO WE NEED BEAUTIFUL ROADS ? TO TRANSPORT THE DEAD BODIES TO THE CEMETERY IN STYLE.

    OFCOURSE WE NEED ROADS BUT NOT ON THE EXPENSE OF THE HEALTH OF A NATION.WHAT ABOUT THE GREEDY LAWYERS AND THE SO CALLED MEDICS. THEIR GREED IS ASTONISHINGLY SKY HIGH.
    THE EDUCATIONALISTS THE PRINCIPLES OF SCHOOLS THEIR GREED ON THE EXPENCE OF THE BRIGHT SCHOOL CHILDREN,
    ALL THESE CANCEROUS PRACTICES NEED TO BE ADDRESSED BY THE NEXT GOVERNMENT.

    THE MEGA RICH RUSSIANS BUYING MILLIONS OF POUNDS WORTH OF PROPERTIES IN LONDON MAYFAIR WITH SWINDLED MONEY FROM THEIR EDUCATION DEPARTMENT ETC
    AND THE GREEDY ESTATE AGENTS CAN STOOP TO THE LOW LEVEL TO HELP WITH MONEY LAUNDERING ,
    UNTIL THE ESTATE AGENTS GET PUNISHED BY BRITISH LAW SYSTEM IN ENGLAND.
    WRONG PRACTICES NEED TO BE PUNISHED BY GOOD PENAL COURTS NOT BY BURYING THE WRONGS AND GET REWARDED.

    SL NEED TO LEARN AND CHANGE FROM THE BAD BAD PRACTICES PREVAILED FOR DECADES.

    No doubt “Good; Bad & Ugly” are joining. One thing must be clear to the people: This “MR & Co. (Unlimited)” the share holders of which are all Rouges; Criminals; Rapists; Drug Peddlers; Mafia Bosses (both in underworld and commercial sectors) who bought shares from the “loot” of Pubic Assets MUST be CHASED away from public life for good. Next the country MUST get a FIRM UNDERTAKING from whom so ever seek a “mandate” to administer Government Affairs, that all those “Share Holders” within that “conglomerate” or “outside” would be brought to justice and make them to live where they deserve to be for such offenses. We DO NOT want any COMPROMISES from any LEANINGS. The Law Enforcement agencies must be FREED to DO their JOB from the start of recording the statements to the finish at JUSTICE and all the way to SERVE the punishments. NO SPECIAL TREATMENTS BECAUSE OF ANY OF THEIR SOCIAL STATUS.Will any one give that FIRM UNDERTAKING; WE will vote for you.

    Astonishing. Ranawaka has no shame. Only a few weeks ago he was attacking UNP/RW, now he wants to ride on the UNP’s coat tails to return to Parliament. Ranawaka was the fifth columnist inside the MS/RW government who did the most to hold back reform, particularly the 20A. Once he gets re-elected he will revert to attacking UNP/RW, undermining any efforts to democratise Sri Lanka.

    UNP’s initiated which united front not that class of alliance that political democracy undertaken by certain task challenge for ours nation, an Independence & sovereignty and democracy of Sri lanka.

    The Proposed front by UNP is that collection of politicians are bandits of ex-JVP anarchist cum Terrorist and ex-SLFP incorrigible politicians, as well as Youth killers of during 1988/89 PARA group leaders are the leading members current installed UNP led – United Front.

    Well, this is not that political or economic or social emancipation of Sri Lankan, which that aim of set target United front manipulated by UNP-Wickramasinghe junta clique to save foreign power and Separatist of Tamil political classes.

    Needless to say UNP comprador bourgeoisie class is that very inceptions always a lackeys of US, UK and Indian imperialism & its big power hegomoinism.

    Different groups of the comprador class of UNP belongs to US led monopoly capitalism of different countries of US, UK, GERMANY, FRANCE & Japan.

    Sri lanka- UNP led comprador bouegesios consist of pro- British, pro -US, Pro-Japan and Pro-Indian-RAW groups. That is MS CBK and UNP belongs pro-Foreign powers.
    Nowadays Indian and US want used Island Sri lanka take account of our geographical location in what they want consider their backyard.

    What UNP led Wickrmasinghe want to do which, that surrender all our national rights and sovereignty to US and Indians.

    This is nothing else re-order of Indian Ocean political balance power of in favor of US & Indian which Sri-lanka state in that bent into the hegemony power by UNP installed puppet regime in Colombo .

    We denounced US & Indian hegemony in that replace UNP junta regime of anti-democracy and unmasked it in front of the masses of people.
    We had our country bloodies experienced in 1977 to 1994 of last century under UNP regime of JRJ, R.Premadasa and Ranil Wickransinge’s Junta of 160 days rule since 2015 January 9th.

    UNP current junta regime led by Ranil.W…& -CBK want reserved back capitalist development and keep our land backwardness and reaming depend economy headed by US and India big-capitalist rule in every sphere of life of all Sri lankns.

    Ours aim of uniting national struggle against expansionist policies of Indian and US which disguised itself as “democracy of good governances” and so-called ‘Rule of Law’.

    Ours national bourgeoisie class that still represented politically by Mahinda Rajapakase led UPFA.

    People should rise national banner and must have Parliamentary Election programmed for NATIONAL UNITY BY WHICH TO UNITED WITH ALL THE FORCES THAT CAN BE UNITED EXCLUDING FEW UNP’s and their lackeys.
