Vijayakala Resigns

Vijayakala Maheswaran has resigned from the post of State Minister of Child Affairs after Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe who is also the leader of the party she represents in Parliament, the UNP (United National Party), asked her to step down on account of calling for the resurgence of the LTTE.

Vijayakala Maheswaran

Maheswaran, at a state function, referring to the abduction and rape of a six year old girl, said that people were safe while the LTTE was controlling parts of the North and East and expressed the view that a resurgence of that party was needed.

Following outrage from various quarters, Wickremesinghe is reported to have met with Maheswaran on Wednesday (4th) and advised her to resign.

Speaker Karu Jayasuriya has informed the Attorney General to investigate whether or not the controversial statement constitutes a violation of the constitution.

      Vijayakalaan should have resigned when an allegation was made against her for instructing the police to release Mahalingam Shashi Kumar alias Swiss Kumar the main suspect in the Vidya Sivaloganathan gang rape and murder.

      The police would dare not take her for serious questioning because she is well connected to the ruling establishment.
      On the other hand a former terrorist Wimal Sangili Karuppan Weerawansa stated publicly he wanted to bomb parliament, is still allow to roam around and spew venom.

      Meanwhile somass, Helass, sach, wannihami, ……………………………………………. and other b***s carriers to Mahinda are keeping mum on Wimal Sangili Karuppan Weerawansa .

    Well, sorry to loose you like this. You will be missed by all honest and patriotic Sri Lankans from the North as well as the South, East & the West. We all know you did not mean what you said but the Jarapaksas and the Pakkaliyas (Panikkiyas) are very good at spin. Their money and popularity is fading by the day. Keep on working for a better, United Sri Lanka. Therwan Saranai.

        My dear friend Thrisu,
        ‘tiger’, ‘terrorist’, ‘sinhala’ are all just labels to people living in the world of illusions (Mithya Drushtika). Anonymous is non existent, free of defilements and outside the frame (Chakra). ‘I’ or ‘Me’ do not exist.
        ‘Suwapath weva’.

    She should resign from UNP. TNA should immediately absorb her. TNA has been rejected by Tamils recently. It need somebody who instead of implementing Yahapalanaya Acts in North, who can talk about Tamils problem.

        Just feel light! No one from outside can come and beat your, locally cultivated, talent (Jealous and hate), on that. You hold the record on that.

        Next time I tell to Sampanthar to take you in. Hopes you fells better now!

      She should resign from the UNP and join hands with Chief Minister Vigneswaran. There is a high probability that TNA will split before the next election. There will be two groups contesting one led by Sampanthan and the other by Vigneswaran. One unfortunate probability is that the CM might align with MR/Basil.

    She was asked to leave. She did. Both are democratic traditions rarely seen in the last couple of decades.

    Was Duminda Silva asked to resign over the Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra’s Murder? That is a story on its own.

      It is commendable if one steps down when one could have stayed on.
      Her position was untenable within the UNP.

        CV is unlikely to let TNA go broken. But Ranil is working hard using Sumanthiran. If I am Sampanthar, I would have made deal with Vijayakala and drop out Sumanthiran to go to UNP.

        It will be a lesson for Ranil, when he wiped complete out of North, he would lick his wound. Sumanthiran, leave a confirmation to others that when he face Kathirgamar’s, Mahendran’s end, not to repeat the same mistake of hanging Tail of the Sinhala Parties.

      “Alleges She Refused Mahinda Rajapaksa Offer of One Billion Rupees and Cabinet Portfolio.”

      If the above is true than giving-up the portfolio is a non-issue for her. She should still do a best for the people that she serves.

      “She was just a mother and we made her s heroine.”

      You didn’t, however Gota did by making her another widow. As tradition dictate weeping widows have more chances of winning elections than their brainy sisters.

    Vijayakala Maheswaran is an inspiration to those of us who want to see that Tamils are not trampled over. Why she had to resign is not difficult to understand. Her political future is now set in stone. She’d re-emerge soon with more clout.

      “Her political future is now set in stone. She’d re-emerge soon with more clout.”

      Would she remember to thank thrishu, Paul, somass, Hela, wannihami, sach, Shenali, Wimal Sangili Karuppan Weerawansa, …………………………………. and their ill informed fellow bigots.

      Without them she would not make it.

      A powerful government minister during a meeting regarding security with the Sinhalese armed forces had openly stated that indigenous Eelam Tamil Vijayakala whose ancestors have been living in the island from time immemorial and a daughter of the Tamil kingdom of Jaffna , should be stripped of her citizenship and her movable and immovable properties confiscated. How dare this bloody Sinhalese racist state this to the rapist looting Sinhalese armed forces who are the source of all the problems in the Tamil areas in the north and east. So these Sinhalese Hitlers are going to make her stateless and confiscate all her properties and give it the raping looting drug peddling occupying Sinhalese armed forces in the north? As if they have do not have enough of stolen Tamil properties and homes. May be he and the Sri Lankan government will give part of her confiscated wealth the Buddhist monks, as a reward for calling for a Sinhalese Hitler. These third rates only came to power largely on the votes of the island’s Tamil speakers and have forgotten this . They do not seem to be doing anything to these Sinhalese racists laymen Buddhist monks and politicians who are making rabid racist statements but only giving the wink and the nod. This Sinhalese Buddhist Fascist minister should be disciplined and I recommend that he made stateless and his ill gotten wealth confiscated . The Irony is Sri Lankan Tamils who are the original people of the island are now being threatened with statelessness and confiscation of their wealth if they do not tow to the Sinhalese Buddhist Fascist line , but the Sinhalese who are largely descended from low caste recently migrated South Indian immigrants can do anything. Welcome to the Apartheid Sinhalese Buddhist Fascist state, whose ungrateful present rulers are here largely due to the votes of the Tamil speakers in the island. Let them try to make her stateless and we will see the consequences.

        I am deeply concerned by this. How dare this Minister threaten to make someone stateless and confiscate this person’s wealth just because she is a Tamil and he and the Sinhalese do not like what she stated. This is typical racist fascist dictatorship. Just like in Nazi Germany where the Jews and other so called inferior races could not say anything or protest about German brutality . They were made stateless and their wealth confiscated. He also stated this to top military personnel , as he knew very well that he will find a sympathetic audience from these anti Tamils , who are the root cause for all these problems . These are the racists who are occupying the Tamil North and East , stealing the wealth of the Tamils , their lands homes , living a luxurious life , whilst most of the local population is forced to live a marginal existence. If not for the relatives in the diaspora they will be starving. Why should they leave , as they can get away with murder and rape. For these racists fascist low lives, the Tamils should not protest over their treatment but be grateful. All these people should be severely disciplined and publicly punished . However in racist Sri Lanka this is never going to happen. This minister should be forced to apologise to Vijayakala and the Tamils publicly and kicked out the cabinet. Vijayakala was made to resign for stating the truth but nothing happens to racist Buddhist priests, ministers, army officers who make death gestures, as they are all Sinhalese and the victims Tamils. Sinhalese will kill endangered elephants , that never even threaten them, for tuskers nothing happens but Tamils killing a leopard that strayed into a village and was mauling humans is a crime, despite the villagers making numerous complaints to the Wild Life department to remove the leopard. Now the Hindian Military is entertaining and taking this war criminal armed forces that killed more than 150000 Tamils for free to trips to Buda Gaya .

    But there was no question of resignation under Prabakaran’s “law and order” that Vijayakala was drooling about. If anyone dared to criticize the LTTE, a bullet to the head was a forgone conclusion. Shanmugalingam Sivashankar, the Tiger intelligent chief, was called Pottu Amman for his knack for stamping the Pottu with precision on the forehead … Oh … … those good old days……

      Well said Ajay. Do Tamils in the North really need the LTTE rule? I would not think so, do they want their teenage boys recruited as suicide bombers? If Tamils of North want law and order they should work with the police and the army, not despise them.

      Ajay,
      There was no question of resignation under Prabhaharan’n law and order. If you criticize LTTE a bullet was conclusion. You all called him a terrorist, facist and you think the calling LTTE administration is a crime.Do you remember those days about white van abduction and murders? Do you remember the murder of Lasantha? Why he was murdered and who was responsible for the murder? Do you know why Sarath Fonseka was jailed for three years? Do you rember the removal of Chief Justice? So according to you only LTTE was involved in terror and these are not terror. All these happened because they critizised the Mahinda regime. You should also remember the 1958, 1962, 1978 and 1983 massacres. After 1983 until 2009 there was no riots because of LTTE. Immediately after 2009 May, do you know how many riots against Muslims? Is it wrong for calling a reformed LTTE administration to stop the current violence which was encouraged by Sinhalese military?

        Burt, Ajith, the Pandi Kuttis:
        Sadly two-thirds of Eelam population have rejected a life of law and order and have fled to the Southern gangland of white vans. I wonder why? I thought the Jaffna man is smart. I share your genuine concerns.

          “I thought the Jaffna man is smart.”
          You thought right. They are smart and voted for the Yahapalanaya govt which put white van enterprise out f business, parked the van and the goons are now working as drug paddlers and mussel for drug dealers the icing on the cake is that they are mostly in the south and are not concerned about minorities.

          There is a good chance the white van maniac could come back but then it will be easy for these same people to move from south to Canada, UK etc than the north. So you thought right they are smart.

    Vijayakala did the correct thing by resigning. Unlike Wigneswaran who is supporting and working for LTTE wanting to extend his stay even after the term of the PC is over.

    Too little, too late!!!
    What she did at the hall is that She unveiled another LTTE terrorists invasion of Sinhala-Buddhist Sri Lanka. Her traitors actions call for more military presence in Yapa-patuna (Jaffna).
    /
    Vijayakala should have been punished longtime ago.

    When the President wanted Wickremasinghe to resign he refused to do so. Now Wickremasinghe has told Vijayakala to resign. What a hell of a chap! It shows Vijayakala is a more honourable person than him as she complied.

    What a paradox. A State Minister has resigned over a speech,whereas a whole bunch of Ministers and MPP roam around scotfree after swindling the state coffers.

    Poor Vijayakalani…
    She put the foot in it.. Didn’t she?..
    Sampathar called them my boys.
    Sampthar’s hand picked CM Wigneswaran was all praise of HIM,
    And nearly put a Garland after his inauguration..
    Sivajilingam, Ponnambalam, and a whole hist of others want to not only resurrect him but also build Stautes to commemorate HIM.
    Vshvakalani is not that sharp Is she?
    First she wanted to save Swiss Kumar.
    Now this.
    Dr Ranil himself wanted to give him Self Rule.
    Can’t understand why he is pissed off?….
    May be Dr Ranil is getting the Jitters because of his own Backbench…

      “Sampathar called them my boys. Sampthar’s hand picked CM Wigneswaran was all praise of HIM, And nearly put a Garland after his inauguration..”

      If people believe and celebrate the thug Dutthagamani even 2250 years after his demise who also fought the first religious war (he is perhaps the first Chakravartin of Sinhala/Buddhist Caliphate.) why not VP (you secretly admire him and DR MR is eternally grateful to him)?

      How come you don’t seem to protest against JVP celebrating Rohana another psychopath? Is it double standard, bigotry or racism?
