We Will Ensure Victory Of New President Before End Of This Year: Basil Rajapaksa

Former Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa said the SLFP-led alliance would ensure the victory of a new President before the end of the year.

Rajapaksa is the chief ideologue and the national organizer of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna, the proxy party of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Addressing a balamandala meeting of the SLPP in the Mahara area, the former Minister said the youth participation was required to usher in a new Presidency to the country that had been driven to the ground by the current government.

Addressing the meeting, Rajapaksa also said he did not have any plans to secure or continue the 51-day government. “Our party does not have a competition with Ranil Wickrememesinghe, Sajith Premadasa or Navin Dissanayake. We only have a competition with the international conspirators,” Rajapaksa said addressing the meeting.

He said his party was able to outperform all political parties, including the 72-year-old UNP, the 67-year-old JVP and the 53-year-old JVP at the last Local Government election. “We easily can win all districts at a future election,” he added.

    SLPP has a No-name President.
    If there choice is Gotabhaya, he will never become the President, as long as Lord Kataragama exists in Lanka.

      Racist Expats are known racists, with their backing he thinks he can be the President.
      Just a dream fantasy with the push of racists living abroad with both feet in their adopted country who still lives in the fantasy of Srilanka as their Holiday house.
      What a shame? Money launderer, war criminal( allegedly ), Whitevan man to be made President by the Expat Fantasists??
      Want to laugh?
      7-11 shop keeper? Failed Soldier who ran away ? The Medamulana Rowdy?
      Patriotic Srilankans ! Pick your choice!!!
      Nice try certainly by the racist expats to choose this Racist.
      What about the people who lives in SL ? Do they wants him as President?????
      Nehh!! A definite Noooooooooo!
      A definite ” kiss the dust” say no more. Opened and closed book absolutely.
      Oh ! What’s the Silly mama from Polonoruwa will be doing?
      He too is boasting that he will be the Candidate and no other.

        Gotabhaya or expats are not racists, for sure. He is a patriot, who was instrumental in eliminating LTTE terrorism from Sri Lanka.
        Your other accusations are unsubstantiated.
        I am against him and wanted someone else, an apolitical man to be the next President, for 3 reasons;
        3) to beat the myth that only Rajapaksas can develop the country.
        2) someone with a definite, clear and right vision to take the country forward in a new direction that has not been followed before, for greater common good, especially for the benefit of rural folks.
        1) to safeguard Buddha Sasana and the Sinhalese nation in Sri Lanka, who are a minority in terms of world population, with decisive and definitive moves.

          He is not patriot. He fled to US to avoid the war and when his big brother took power he returned the country to steal money and he Became rich. He should never be elected as president. He is one thug.

          The so called true Patriots Never Rob their nation’s wealth , or the foreign aid given in good faith to Feed and Educate the poor.
          But not your so called ” Patriots ” who Robbed our nation dry. Killed the fellow country men . Hated any other religion or race. You still call them PATRIOTS??
          I think you’re totally wrong.
          They should be ashamed of themselves for NOT BEING PATRIOTIC.
          THESE people are just State Thieves who Robbed our nation left right and centre.
          Now they want MORE.
          Greedy Pigs.

        Even if Gotabhaya is contested, he wouldn’t win. He is too tough to be a leader in Sri Lanka. Someone will challenge him for sure.

        So he claims he can win but he never explains how he can do this. Does he have some good policy proposals. What is he going to do different to grow the economy? Oh I know build a whole bunch of stuff in the middle of nowhere sit and wait for investors to come. From where China of course. Any other plans? Yes get Iran to dig a tunnel under Bandarawela a UNP constituency and Welimada to siphon Mahaweli water to his favorite area. Never mind the Mahaweli is already tapped out and fully utilized for other purposes. Keep fighting the LTTE because it is still active in his imagination. Maybe he can start paying money to his imaginary LTTE to keep them from fighting like he did before with the real LTTE. How about pay rises. No cannot do that have to refill his own coffers first. How does any one vote for this MORON, MURDERER and SCUMBAG. I know Sri Lankans of course especially the expatriate variety.

      :

    The environment is made by current President these alleged criminals to mislead the nation.
    :
    It is high time us to stand against AMERICAN Citizens – the brothers of BP Rajakshe.

    None other than former SECRETARY of defence/ aka Wadakaya of the Nation – head of Whitvanning abduction/persecution movement. – Gotabaya Rajpakashes.

    The other man in that brutal family- 50% to most known – also an american Citizen Basil Rajapakshe.
    .

    What is happening to Basil’s case of misappropriating millions from the Divineguma Development Department for the distribution of roofing sheets among beneficiaries during the 2015 Presidential Election.? Then, the one he is accused with Thirukumaran Nadesan for misappropriating Rs. 250 million in public funds (Malwana Case)? Then the one for allegedly misappropriating Rs 29.4 million belonging to Divi Neguma Department, to print five million almanacs with the image of his brother to be used as election propaganda material, during the 2015 Presidential election? Our rat-a-tat-tat president is in cahoots with him? Has the AG been dragging his feet because of this?

    Interesting. Obviously, the main conspirator would the USA based on all comments. If so, why is he and his brother still retain their US status. Are they not foreign conspirators?

    Mahinda will not trust anyone outside the immediate family. Both Gota and Basil cannot contest due to their dual citizenship unless USA cancels their American citizenship. Namal is too young for the post and at present sounds immature. So Mahinda is likely to settle for Chamal, because he is docile and will dance to Mahinda’s tune unlike Gota or Basil. This makes Sirisena a non entity despite all his dirty tricks to woo Mahinda. Any puppet nominated by Mahinda will be the next President.

    What happens if the cricketer Kumar Sangakkara contests the Presidential election. Though at first he was not willing, the people of Sri Lanka will be happy to welcome Kumar Sangakkara as President if he contests the Presidential election as a UNP candidate. He is also a lawyer and has a good standing and very popular among the public as well as among the cricketing countries. At present since all are corrupt, I feel Kumar Sangakkara is the ideal candidate for President. Ranil Wickremasinghe should consider his name. He has no animosity with any one. The Tamil community will certainly welcome his participation in the Presidential election. If he contests, the insane Maithiripala can be kicked out easily and even the Rajapaksas can be pushed aside from the political arena. Kumar Sangakkara is one who always want the glory of Sri Lanka to be cherished and is certain to give a good image for Sri Lanka, like Imran Khan of Pakistan. I feel Kumar Sangakkara should come forward and put an end to all these messy problems in the best interests of the people of Sri Lanka. .

    ” We only have a competition with international conspirators “. The PEOPLE of this country know that very well and also they KNOW those “Conspirators” include TWO of YOU – You, Basil and your brother “GOTA” – both from the US. There is in our village saying: “Kata Boru Keewath Diva Boru Kiyanne Nehe”. Thank you for agreeing with the People in this country and they will IDENTIFY both of you with those “International Conspirators”. Hopefully, before that any one of those “Court Cases” in which both of you are “INDICTED” would be decided by the Judiciary and provide “accommodation” in a Jail Cell to watch the election results. Please note, not like your days in power, we now have an “Independent Judiciary” . That you would have seen from the latest appointments to the SC and Appeal Courts. FIRST, clear that HURDLE. Don’t think of CLEARING that through grabbing “POWER” to administer the Governing affairs of the country. Isn’t that your “GOAL”?

    Basil & Gota,
    When will be you both give up US citizenship? If you are patriotic to Srilanka you should have given up that in 2009. Why didn’t you do that. It is not a secret that both of your earned millions from human trafficing and arm sales. This is what you planned to do for the future? What will happen to Mahinda and his son Namal?

    Mr. Ayathurai Rajasingham: The WORST EVER INSULT you directed at our “Hero” Mr. Kumasangakkara is your proposition, out of all people, Mr. Ranil Wickramasinghe to “INVITE” him (Kumar) to contest at the Presidential election. Please note, our Kumar Sangakkara is not the type of “Arjun Mahendran”- the TYPES much “LIKED” and “ASSOCIATED” by your “HERO” Ranil Wickramasinghe.

    We have reached to end first quarter 21st. The urgent task of People put in very simple form are that; The people task is new form of struggle between country’s Independence in one hand and Other hand Surrendering of nation Sovereignty to Foreign -power of hegemonies in that coming crucial issues of that Presindtnatil Election in 2020? Where we stand in year 2020 ?
    We have been an Independence since 1948 of 70 years. The task of Independence of sovereignty of our Country is unfinished and incomplete by Neo-Liberal system of governance is/was that key range of policies implemented by United Nation Party from 1948. Out of 70 odd years UNP was rule half of that..
    Ours political-economic-social structure and that very foundation was Neo-Colonial an Economy-Political order was driving force of nation development and Democracy. By and large undermined independence overall by UNP set of Ideology and its set of ” governances” specially since 1977.
    .
    When came into being that an introduce in 1977 by UNP-JRJ brought forward was that naked Neo-Liberal of corny capitalism RULE by USA,UK, EU & Japan led private empire of monopolies and their political hegemonies .That discarded norms of democrtiac of governances by JRJ of UNP.
    The Sri Lankan that which surrendered their nation economic, political and social sovereignty to IMF, World Bank, ADB and other Western intuitional by that ” governance” policies of by that UNP leadership over 40 odd years.
    Indeed nation crux of problems of DEVELOPMNT and DEMOCRACY remain is complex, but it has be need political solution for ongoing unpersedant Economic crisis by next presidential Election in 2020!
    There were political parties and alliances since 1994,that so called of “governances” since 1994 unable address or delivered nothing that by SLFP of CBK led federalism.

    Ha ! Ha ! Ha ! …. We can have a mighty laugh. The Sri Lankan citizenry should be utter, GOBS, MUTTS, IDIOTS, SUPIDO’s and DUMBOS if we are going to elect these three JOKERS into office again.

    The District of Kurunegala had such people in August 2015, but I would think that saner counsel would prevail this time around and they would be BOOTED OUT … Lock, Stock and Barrel.

    Our country needs a PATRIOT and a person who would not ROB our coffers but on the horizon, I don’t see anyone fitting that bill at the moment.

    How can he write off MS?

    When BR first sat on a Minister-chair, he wanted US$60 million (nearly SLR one billion at todays rate) to build an office to gaze at the ocean and dream.
