UNP Washes Hands Off 100-Days Programme

Spokesperson for the United National Party (UNP) and head of the party’s publicity unit Harin Fernando said today that the 100-day Programme was prepared and marketed by those who supported Maithripala Sirisena’s presidential bid, adding that it was not part of the UNP’s manifesto.

Harin

While acknowledging that the UNP along with other parties and groups had supported Sirisena’s candidacy, Fernando refuted a statement made by former UNP Secretary Kabir Hashim who said on May 31st that the UNP was responsible for the 100-day programme.

Fernando made these comments addressing the media at the party headquarters, Sirikotha, while introducing the media operation unit of the UNP.

The controversy over who authored the 100-day programme first arose when President Maithripala Sirisena claimed he had no idea who had drafted the document.

    Tuk-tuk is going on an adventure for RW. For ordinary people it’s an everyday sh1t. Next you should try a crowded public transportation between 7am to 9am.

      So no one wants to take action against the Rajapaksas Criminal Network and their corruption!?
      Everyone seem to want to distance themselves from the 2015 Election promise!?

      Today , in post-war Sri Lanka, POLITICAL CORRUPTION is the ROOT Cause of Debt trap, poverty and attacks on minorities– organized by corrupt politicians like MR and RW, to Divide, Distract and Rule moda masses.

      Attacks on Muslims were done to distract us from Bondscam report, which was released just before the riots in April 2018.

      Ranil and MR protect each other and are partners and godfathers of the putrid political culture of corruption and anti-minority attacks, now as before.
      Lanka is doomed unless a Clean new political party and leaders emerge.

      the biggest problem with the crowded buses is you wonder how to get out if you are in the middle.I was wracking my brain then i saw a window nearby and got on top of a lady who was sitting and she shouted and i tried to wriggle out through the window even prepared to fall on the ground but the conductor caught me by the legs .

    Former YAHAPALANISTS show that everything is PResident. Definitely PREsident is wrong for not dissolving the govt and appointing Ranil as the PM. Otherwise, UNP and Ranil did the bond scam and the crooked 19th amendment during the 100 day program. Onw item in the 100 day list was introducing behabiour/discipline guide lines to MPs. YAhapalanaya never did that. Instead they hide from revealing theor names as crooks who took money from PTL and from which businesses they have got money. UNP is supposed to LOSE BIG TIME from the general election. All the crooks will be home.

    I heard Ranil is very popular ever where he goes People hoot at him and in Yapanaya while he was dining people threw stones at hit. So the bankrupt UNP says 116 theives (114 ministers plus ropsie and her son ?) received profits from the Central Bank bond scam. they want to hide it and try to publish the names of those who involved in the 2nd COP{E committee. Every bpdy knows who KAru Jayasooriya is. How did he buy houses in Engalnd with his Minister Salary ?

    Is Dr Ranil visiting UNP Pathalaya Faction?.
    With the backing of only the Elite, Anglican & Vellala Faction, Dr Ranil has his work cut out even to win the PM gig let alone get to the President Class…

    UNP washes hands off the 100 day program means the PM was Ranil. SO Ranil was a failure during those 100 days. He was busy with the Central Banl theft and profit sharing with the other 24 MPs.

    Instead HArin Fernando must say how much DOugh he got from Arjun Aloesius. IT looks every important MP such as minister got Rs 300 million. The minimum profit should be the Rs 100,000 that Sarath Fonseka got. How much Rosie’s son got for handing over report from Ranil’s office.

    HArin Fernando says that the UNP or Ranil di dnot have any collective responsibilityeven though they were talking about Lichavi Type Yahjapalana govt. they were busy with the bond scam, they were crooks and did not do the job properly, now blame Mahinda Rajapakse govt and Maithripala Sirisena. What Losers UNP are.

    Vajira KAriyawasam doe snot like the word Thief which says they stole from the public. IF they don’tlike it, the best suited word is CHEATER (cheated from some one) or FRaudster WHICH IS the best suitable. anyway, all these words imply almost the same recognition for LOOTERS OF THE COUNTRY.

    100 days games were part of the CC gimmicks. It was for Jan, 8th, 2015 election. Whoever stood for that election and won is the one responsible for it. It doesn’t matter whose Idea it was. It is not our intention to save Ranil or UNP. It is not that we are saying Ranil is honest, but only New King is the crook. In this case, CC is responsible for the 100 days program.
    Anyway more than three years have passed from failing that three months program. Why is it now UNP and SLFP are talking about the three months program that was not implemented? So, it doesn’t make any difference of conducting the election immediately after the Presidential election or 9 months after the presidential election. If the 100 day program was implemented, then the time delay can be sighted as mistake and it had caused the implementation. EP is not removed and if has performed satisfactorily for the people, he can stand for re-election. Immediately after the election, he can remove the PM and appoint whomever he wants.

    Here the petty man is crying because he lost the right to remove Ranil, by 19A. But the petty man is not able to hear the people are crying that they lost their right to remove him, because the 100 days program went unimplemented. People are not angry at Ranil because New King could not remove Ranil three months ago, but they are angry because they could not remove New King three years ago. He would not be crying now, unless he had put all efforts to save Old Royal until they grow up and destroy his dream of coming back in 2020. Sadly he found out Old Royals had grown up above his shoulders only at the LG election. But it is time for him to bring up some courage and face the reaping of what he sowed.

    Sirisena does not know about it, UNP disowns it, Sobithaya is dreaming about it, and hundreds of othe pandankarayas rushed to print about how the 100 day Programme should be implemented. Whilst Sobithaya is pushing daisies from wherever he is, and UNPsays “not our baby” the question is where are those nincomppos who hailed YAHAPALANAYA.? Those bloody traitors including those who call themselves the Friday Fornicators, where are they now.?

    This government changed the date vesak is celebrated but did they also change the “April Fools” day?

    “The petitions were filed by Sinhala Ravaya and retired Air Force Officer Sunil Perera alleging that the Deputy Minister vehemently insulted the reputation of the judiciary and lawyers at a press conference held on August 21 2017.

    The petitions highlighted the fact that such defamatory statements will shatter public confidence and provide a warped image of the judiciary to the people of Sri Lanka.”

    Send Bond Scam Ranil (who should be jailed for grand larceny at the Central Bank), on a train or bus during rush hour or to the public toilet at a Railway or bus station!.

    Also, Why are RW’s US handlers at Millennium Challenge Corproation (MCC) which did deep dives in SL Transport sector so keen on private trains in Hambantota, tho Colombo still lacks a rapid rail public transport system?
    This is Another Hambantota white elephant disaster development project to advance US security interests and check China in Hambantota?!
    Also US corporation GE is selling out dated train engines to Lanka for billions, while US aid induced corruption grows in transport and energy sectors in Lanka trough Fake Xperts from MCC!

    Dear Yahapalana,

    Now it’s not only for money that there is a lack of accountability.
    .
    What is crucial here that whatever the details of the campaign that was launched, we reposed faith in the movement for democracy to usher in a decent government, and so we voted you guys in.
    .
    Now it looks as though we won’t have a chance to even express our feelings by voting at proper elections, and we have to put up with all the antics of your MPs. The alternative of the Rajapaksas is worse.
    .
    The first task before us, the people, is to ensue that we should at least know what has happened. We should not put up with these guys who keep shifting the blame from one to the other, and we just will not be told what really has been happening to all the resources, human resources, that our country has. Young people have lost all faith in the system – all want to leave this blighted country.

    The Obvious: UNP has a 100 -year program – not a 100 day program. In 100 years time we will all be dead and gone to our respective next worlds. As far as I am concerned, I have applied for a residence in the ‘Para Nirmitha Vasawarthiya’, which happens to be the best star class Deva Loka.

    By the way, don’t confuse the ‘Para’ there, which means the ‘ultimate’, with Amarasiri’s ‘Para’, which means the ‘worst’. In other words, ‘PNV’ promises the ultimate in everything, including housekeeping. At least, that is what the advertisement says. Hopefully, it is not bogus like what the UNP promises.

    Srilankans should be ashamed of themselves about their political & religious leadership and the political and culture they developed over the seven decades. We all thought politics is a public service but in reality we see politics is only to serve politicians and benefits to only politicians. It is sad and worrying that even though it is crystal clear they are cheating us in the name of Lord Buddha, in the name of this land we still wants the same people to ruin us, ruin Lord Buddha and ruin this land. Power and greediness rule this land which results bloodbath in this land and waters.

    You are spot on in your assessment on MY3, the mad, vicious President we have unfortunately got

    MY3 is unbeievable. I do not know how Jayanthi has lived him with him for 40 years.

    Like father, then like uncles Dudley, telecom Sirisena and the dead Weli Raju, Chathurika and Daham are big time rogues

    I am sad about Ranil who has to put up with such a bastard

      The 100 day plan was full of good intentions, just like the road to hell. The problem however is that YAHAPALANAYA usedthat as a ruse to grab power. When in office they ie both Sirisena and U and Pee disowned it and went on a national looting spree from the Central Bank downwards. There are many post 2015 political billionnaires in SL. They are fattening by the day, and as for the people who voted them in, damn them!
