We Have Lost Billions Of Rupees Because Of Basil And Sajith – SB

Minister of Social Empowerment and Welfare, S. B. Dissanayake has accused former Minister Basil Rajapaksa and incumbent Minister Sajith Premadasa as two of the main culprits who have driven the Samurdhi movement to the ground, due to their actions which has resulted in the movement losing billions of rupees.

“Because of Basil Rajapaksa we lost around 7 to 8 billion rupees, and even due to the actions of Sajith Premadasa, we have incurred a further loss of 3 to 4 billion rupees,” he told a meeting of Samurdhi officers in Badulla on Sunday.

Dissanayake added that the movement suffered further financial instability due to certain decisions taken during the past few years, where loans were given to people who went overseas and loans were given for local politicians to purchase bicycles, all which, according to him had contributed to its current situation.

“We must stop this and take every effort necessary to develop this movement and not let it suffer,” he said.

Dissanayake added that it was time for everyone to change their mentality if the country was to go forward. “If we don’t change the mentality, we can’t go forward,” he added.

    Look who is talking?

    One master criminal and fraudster talking about other master fraudsters(not so sure if Sajith is a fraudster – more of a fool perhaps). And to top it he is denigrating Sajith to earn merit from RW.

    What a humbug.

    Many who deserved Samurdhi did not receive it and many who received it did not deserve it.
    Selection for Samurdhi benefits were often based on political criteria and “known to the selector” basis.
    It was the most abused scheme of social benefits, ever.

    May be he wants to be the controller of this vast asset instead of the other rogues. Trust this jumping frog, me think not! People know how deep his pockets are….. Samurdhi funds will disappear down in a major sink hole.

      Yes, Thris – pott calling kettle is black.

      Anyways, these men are important to Mr Sirisena to keep UPFA intact. But SB does knot know that he is also chargeble regardless of him being a minister of the govt. Pinguththaraya, knows nothing but to chatu katha only.

    Here is the argument why we the Tamils of Sri Lanka must learn Sinhala! From the President, Prime Minister and the 99% of the Ministers of Sri Lankan Legislature can’t utter a word in Tamil to save their lives. If we Tamils are to get involved in the national argument we must learn Sinhalese.

    Those morons in power don’t even want to use simultaneous translation to communicate with us and that is the extent of their willingness to communicate with us directly.

    May be so. But what about the millions you stole from the Samurdhi funds. I thought that was one of the main reasons CBK threw you out like a door mat.

    If these are true, do not allow them to get away with it. They have abused the public funds and thus committed a crime.Consider this as the criminal offence and conduct proper enquirers and expose them. Nobody should attempt to cover up or condone abuse and offences of public officers or politician

    Thieves among thieves, birds of a feather, devils disciples. You will always be the raiders in the cause of development and your goons will be the agents to loot the economy on your behalf.

    Samudri is initiated to support the needy people and not the recommended people; as such there should be a set of specific criteria defined, recommendation is definitely not one of that. Our patriots are very fast to proclaim how intelligent and advanced the Sri lankans are supposed to be, then where are all these intelligent people to design a functional system and where is the moral in the advanced civilized society.

    For politicians, poor are assets.

    Without that asset they can’t stay in politics. So they maintain poverty stricken groups who are always ready to sings slogans on behalf of them.

    In case their refusal, a mere threat would bring them to the slogan singing procession.

    Samurdi and Janasavi are examples: poverty stricken groups.

    Politicos know very well that entrepreneurship can’t be given by force even though if a genuine effort is made.

    The members (of Samurdi or Janasavi) will be there for long time and their off springs inherit it some time later so uninterrupted flow of poverty stricken group is assured.

    And the public funds derived from people mainly through lotteries may become treasure; uninterrupted source for swindling.

    There’s no importance of SB’s comment on Basil and Sajith. It’s just to shine above them.

    It is Samurdhi for the politicians that run this scam and for their extended family and friends, but crumbs for the real needy that are queuing in the sun and rain. Obviously SB is trying to snatch the purse

      “Because of Mr. Jacket & Mr. Clean, how many multi Billions have we lost since february, 2015 ??????????”

      When the government changed the coffer was already empty, hence, there was nothing to lose.

      The new government found a note saying “we have looted the treasury, catch us if you can”.

    Please at least do your work and show results to justify your existence as a minister who does not have public popularity as a defeated candidate.Don’t blame others for your inefficiency. You have been given a task do it or get out.

    A simple case of the pot calling the kettle black.

    SB has shown his true colours over & over again & is not fit to hold a Ministerial position. Hopefully the masses will realize at least now that this whole bunch of greedy, incompetent, hypocrites should never be allowed to set foot in Parliament again.

    SB helped the creation of the Pramuka Bank by depositing Samurdhi funds there and helping the management and himself become millionares overnight. People lost their lives due to its collapse, whilst this fool now rides in like a knight in shining armour to once again usurp control of the funds.

From the poor man’s money of course! Don’t open that shit mouth….you are asking for trouble!(illang-kanawa)
