What Is Weerawansa Trying To Do?

By Kumar David

Prof. Kuma David

It is not easy to decode Wimal Weerawansa’s (WW) game-plan, if he has one deeper than the antics that meet the eye. One school of thought is that he is plain dumb, a loose cannon, a ghastly racist with no well-laid plot. I am wary of this trivialising view. What bothers me is that a caucus of WW, Gammanpilla (UG), Vasudeva (VN) and representatives of 12 parties, met at WW’s house. I also got a report from a knowledgeable friend that an the inner circle “WW, UG, VN, Tissa and the CP met several times at WW’s house purportedly against Basil but actually to support Gota.” I was dismayed to hear Tissa’s name mentioned alongside these vermin; perhaps the report erred on this detail.

A Gota instigated conspiracy makes sense if there is dissension and infighting within the Paksa Clan, but that seems not to be the case. If so, WW-UG-VN (WGV-squad) as a Gota advance-guard does not square. True the Presidency is sinking fast; the economy is in tailspin, the pandemic is mismanaged, the external accounts are in Lakshman-defying descent, the military cocks-up of everything it touches, demented Presidential Commissions dance dervish jigs, forests are raped by pro-SLPP businessmen, financial rackets cause doubts re the probity of the President and the executioners in Geneva ready the guillotine. It’s only 16 months since the November 2019 Presidential Election and just over six since the 2020 General Elections at both of which Nandasena and the SLPP won unprecedented 72% Sinhala-Buddhist voter landslides. People with a limited stock of adjectives cry “incredible” at every turn so I refrain from this improper usage; but in this instance it is apposite to say that the descent of the Presidency into the pits has been incredibly rapid and amazingly multifaceted.

Another problem is the muddle created by manic Commission Reports. Everyone believes part and disbelieves the rest of every report; everybody is sure the Commissioners are toadies transcribing what they were told to say. Some monks insist that the names of the main plotters behind the Easter Attack have been hidden and a few allege that Basil is one. Some say it was an SLPP plot to destabilise yahapalana. Here is one of many typical comments from a neutral persons and explains why credibility in the government has buckled: “In all the cases against Rajapksa party people they are freed of any the high plot. Most cases they even not take to hear in the courts, they just dismissed without hearing. Government administration is gone to dogs. Nothing is done all are in a mess” (original wording). Ultra-racist Sarath Weerasekera says a Cabinet Paper has been tabled to ban Muslim women wearing the niqab and Burqa, this is instantly followed by Foreign Ministry avowal that such talk is all balls. The regime seems to be clueless which of its orifices it is expelling noxious gases through.

This is the season for plots and conspiracies. The ranting of the WGV-squad and the counter demand by 40 SLPP MPs that WW be ejected from Cabinet are typical flavours of the month. A friend SS sees the WGV-squad is a rerun of the 1960-64 Philip Gunawardena episode in the famous United Left Front (ULF). In April 1963 a SLFP, LSSP, CP no-contest pact unexpectedly gave the SLFP sufficient seats to form a government on its own but which was unstable. Trade union mobilisation around the “Twenty One Demands” in April 1963 was followed by formation of the ULF of the LSSP, Philip’s MEP and the CP in mid-1964. Philip a cardinal figure, succeeded in foisting acceptance of Sinhala-Only on the other two parties claims SS. The relevance to the WW saga is the possibility that in the wake of a failing regime, the WGV-squad is exploring prospect of launching out as a separate chauvinist mobilisation with ambitions of its own. If the regime’s fortunes plummet further and fissiparous tendencies materialise openly, this is an option, but as of now it only a possibility to watch. 

“Round about the cauldron go: In the poisons entrails throw: Double, double toil and trouble: Fire burn and cauldron bubble”. Sure it’s a witches’ brew that the Double-Paksa regime is cooking up, is it not?

    Thanks, Professor Kumar.
    .
    The story is sad; one might say even tragic. But it’s been told with the customary verve and seeming relish that makes it most readable.
    .
    The view from the village is that most don’t understand what’s happening, but most Pohottuwa supporters, worried to distraction, are focussing on easier-to-understand figures of COVID infections and deaths. Can’t think out everything here, so the safest scapegoat must be a <Muslim guy. There's a lot to be examined before a layman like me identifies the issues at stake.
    .
    Does that matter? It was an interesting read!

      Dude Kumar
      Tissa, Weerwansa et al are exposing the fact that US citizen Basil is the CIA Mole in the President’s office who is covering up the fact that so many Sri Lankan national institutions have been captured by external forces.

      Basil is responsible for for the Cover Up Report and narrative in the PCoI Report on the Easter Sunday 2019 crime committed by CIA owned and operated ISIS against the people of Sri Lanka in a classic hybrid war attack on the Economy and Society of the Country and for withholding 22 volumes from the Attorney General too!

        Also, the South Asian Diaspora of India and Sri Lanka have been Weaponized by the US-UK to do their dirty work and fight their Hybrid proxy war on China – to Divide and destroy Rising Asia as they have done the Middle East and Africa.
        America’s Kamala Harris is the emerging new Empress of Modi’s India where Silicon Valley NRIs draft national policy, and Boris Johnson is intent on re-booting the British Raj, with the Diaspora British colonialism in India to make crumbing Brexit great again!
        Duel citizens will be ruling Lanka to the benefit of US -Eu corporations and hedge funds!
        What a cleaver ploy – while everyone is distracted with the Covid-19 circus in India and UNHRC circus in Lanka!

          Sad to see, you are still caught by them.

          This is normal, any dictatorships never let their slaves to leave away easily. So it cant be different in today s SL.
          .
          They will take care of you and the low lives, with the huge sums being charged from us today. Thanks should go to us right ? Barbarians (avangarde and collection of other firms) charge today 7 or 8 lacks of rupees for a single passenger to travel back home for few weeks. My friends in UK, Germany and other north european countries dream of seeing their elderly parents who are left to be isolated in today’s covid situation.
          .
          Thanks god we can afford to fly paying huge sums, in current situation, but how many of us srilankens could afford so ?

          Main thing is to please criminals leadership and let them fill heir pockets. Can you please talk to you younger ones in your family circles so that they could finally help your eyes open.
          :
          God bless Srilanka (a beautiful country filled with SCPs).

    It is an internal power struggle among the family members reflect outside using the proxies of the respective persons. MR already got reservation about GR to appoint as presidential candidate. It might have even widen with issuing gazette while PM outside the country, mentioning in a meeting PM forgot that he is no more the president, etc is a clear indication GR want total control over the party and government to make sole decisions rather than collective actions. Therefore, he is using WW et al as a proxy to put pressure on his family members rather than directly clash with them as it may has dire consequence in his personal and political life.

    Having said that what matters is do we identified a leader who really love and concern about the countries well being and its people. The future has to give an answer for that as we couldn’t find one in present.

      Dayan ,

      Dudly Senanayaka had aout Rs 400.00-450.00 on his Bank Account
      when he died . I remember he was driving around when he was in
      the opposition most of the time . And of his time , there was another
      giant figure that was W . Dahanayaka who travelled to Colombo
      from Galle by train on 3rd class with other ordinary passengers .
      Another MP not so popular , from the south , Panini Ilangakoon also
      travelled to Colombo by train with fellow passengers . I personally
      knew Mano Wijeratne occasionally took Private Bus From Kandy to
      Colombo in nineties . We did have leaders time to time who wanted
      to seriously do great things for their country no matter their line of
      party politics . But sudden influx of Dollars from all over the world
      as a result of open market economy of Guru J R J couldn’t be digested
      by the country . They couldn’t find the difference between head and
      tail ! Greed settled in . Greed for power settled in not to serve others
      but to themselves . Service became a Business and this is the mess
      we are in now . Power struggle to control money spin ! Country then ?
      Do not worry , street dogs are in charge !

        WhyWhy
        I could add Piasena Thennkoon,MP from Kandy to the above list .Mr Dahanayake was known to out family from his teachings days where he taught English to my brothers at St Aloysius at Galle and he was a down to earth politican.He was summoned to Rosemead place by SWRD to solve a few problems that my sister in law who was a Rathwatte from Bandara gama had where she was transferred pillar to post as a teacher because she was closely related Mrs Bandaranayke. I too as a youngster tagedalong with my brother to meet the PM and W.D expressed his dismay with the people who were milling around in that house that included Buhhah rakkita and Somarama and Ossie Corea.Last occasion we met \at Rosmead place Chelvanayagam who came to meet SWRD and we had to give him a lift in our car,the time Colombo was on fire where the innocent Tamils paid price when Chelva was tarring the Sinhala name boards in the North.Chelva was not wanted either in Singapore or Malaysia,perhaps even in India but Ceylon gave him a platform to create mischief in the island.

          @whywhy & Noel – Good to know the gentleman politicians list and I already knew few people in your list as well. That’s why mention as not in present days Leave the past behind.

          If the terrorism not took the lifes of Lalith Athulathmullai and Gamini Disanakaya country may have in different situation as well. Both are visionary leaders from what they’ve achieved and advocate for Sri Lanka but not sure about their personal records though.

          When were Sinhala name boards tarred in 1957-58– let alone Chelvanayakam doing that?
          There was no Malaysia when Chelvanayakam arrived in Ceylon. What did he do in Malaya or Singapore to be unwanted there?
          *
          Your great act of kindness to offer a lift to poor SJVC who did not have a car or a driver to take him home will earn you merit but not give you the licence to lie about him and insult a man, whose politics I do not endorse, held in very high regard even by some of the worst Sinhala communal politicians.
          *
          You surprise me with the story that Mrs B’s relative was persecuted under Mr B’s government.
          Are you suggesting that Mr Bwas for some reason taking it out on his wife’s folk.
          In fairness, Mr B kept out all his family and even more his wife’s out of the affairs of the state.
          Even Mrs B was very wise in that regard during her 1960-64 rule. The only relative she trusted for political advise was Felix Dias, a relative of Mr B.

    While the UNHRC circus was going on the PCoI investigation was quickly shut down and an incomplete report released that covers up the roll of Saudi Funds to M.L.M Hizbullah of Kathankudi also to protect Kathankudi’s Zaharan. Why?
    Saudi which killed Jamaal Khasoggi in Istanbul and US are partners in the ISIS terrorism racket. Pl. read the Book The ISIS is US: The Shocking truth behind the Army of terror. The Truth must be revealed for NON-RECURRENCE of such crimes.
    The Geopolitics behind the Easter attacks need to be exposed, and the fact that Zaharan died not in a Church but at Shangi La Hotel with another bomber tell us that China and Sri Lanka’s economies were main targets.

      All this media cross talk about Muslim women’s dress is really to Divide and distract the media narrative from Biden’s dangerous Pivot to Asia and the fact that we are in the midst of a full on Third World Hybrid Cyber War unleashed by the US DeepState and NATO allies (under the Covid-19 mask), against the rise of Asia as the economic hub of the world – led by China at this time. US Secretary of State Blinken is in Japan and stoking the war drums to Divide Asia and crash its rise. The weaponization of the Asia Diaspora in the interest of the US Deepstate to divide Asian countries is clear.
      This is a period in which we are seeing the re-booting UK-US EU COLONIALISM in Asia and Africa through Cyber war and by capture of Data and national institutions to ensure that US.corporations and their front companies like India’s Adani, can buy up and asset strip the Global South during the Covid-19 crisis as Economies have crashed.
      Adani which wants the West Terminal at the Colombo Port is funded by US Hedge Fund BlackRock which got massive Covid-19 bailout funds from the US govt. to asset strip the Global South during the Covid-19 induced economic crash

All bark and running to catch the car but if the car stop it doesn’t know what to do. sarath weeksekara and the rest of the extremist sinhala-buddhist racists are the impediments to this country’s development. The day the rational sinhala buddhists realize that all these ultra racist extremist buddhists and their racist mealy mother monks want to do is to drag this country into a history of glorious sinhala rule that never existed one where kings had 100s of concubines and women were sleeping with animals in the forest, and reject these fools will this country develop.

In the US non racist white got together with the minorities and defeated the racist xenophobe trump, this is what needs to happen hear, the non racist rational sinhala buddhist must speak up now or get ready with banner for when your country is ripped from you by a military dictator as you see happening in Burma.

These irrelevant buffoons know their times up. It is useless arguing about history from which the Sinhalese never learn a lesson. What is about to happen is an existential threat aka financial ruination. At the same time another crisis is also brewing but There is no point mentioning it here. To put it bluntly we are right royally F—d. The double Pakshes had better prepare for a hasty exit or face a public execution of sorts when all hell breaks loose. Until then the idiots in the picture can keep playing their stupid little games.

    Mahinda Rajapaksa never thought the his siblings will be a threat to his personal and political ambition for him and his family. Until 2009, he was a different person and he had the support of the Muslim politicians and international community in the war against LTTE. In 2010, after the end of war, he brought 18th amendment in order to go for third term as President and later to hand over the power to his son Namal. Unfortunately he thought that he need to get the support of Buddhist Fundamentalists and Buddhist Monks and for that he need to create another threat to Buddhist Sinhala by Muslims. So, Buddhist Fundamentalists started anti-Muslim propaganda by attacking mosques and businesses. At the same China extended its game plan by investment on Sri Lanka with loans for unproductive airport, cricket stadium, Hambantota harbour etc. Every one who was aligned with Mahinda understood the Mahinda’s aim and the corruption was accelerated by everyone including him and his family members. His anti-Muslim stand and the corruption was very open and it had a significant impact on his election loss in 2015. This opened the window for his siblings to take their control and replace him with the renewed focus of strengthening Buddhist Sinhala Fundamentalism. It is over for him and his personal aim is wiped out.

      Ajith,
      There was no need for Mahinda Rajapakshe to depict Muslims as a threat to Sinhala Buddhists. Defeating Tamil terrorists was sufficient for him to win.
      After Tamil terrorists were defeated, Tamil Diaspora played a role to create tension between Sinhala Buddhists and Muslims to tell the International Community that Sinhala Buddhists harass minorities to get their sympathy to the demand by Tamils for a separate State. All the clashes between Sinhala Buddhists and Muslims were started by Muslims, not by Sinhala Buddhists. Aluthgama incident in 2015 was the work of ‘Regime Change’ mafia to block Muslim votes to Mahinda Rajapakshe. It worked. The guys who were behind Aluthgama incident are now with ‘Samagi Jana Bala Wegaya’.

      “Unfortunately he thought that he need to get the support of Buddhist Fundamentalists and Buddhist Monks and for that he need to create another threat to Buddhist Sinhala by Muslims.”

    “In April 1963 a SLFP, LSSP, CP no-contest pact unexpectedly gave the SLFP sufficient seats to form a government on its own but which was unstable. “
    *
    Was an election held any time in 1963?
    There was one in 1960 March leading to an unstable UNP governmen t that fell soon.
    Then the election of July 1960 followed. It gave the SLFP 75 out of 151 seats. The no contest pact wasbetween SLFP, LSSP & CP.
    MEP was still smarting about its having to leave SWRDB’s government. It contested 50+ seats to win just 3 (in contrast to 10/89 in March).
    *
    There was no risk of instability as the opposition was a mixed bag of hostile rivals (UMP 30; FP 16; LSSP 12; CP 4; MEP 3; others 11).
    The SLFP faced political difficulties because of the weakening economy.
    *
    “Philip a cardinal figure, succeeded in foisting acceptance of Sinhala-Only on the other two parties claims SS.”
    This is untrue.
    The CP had accepted Sinhala Only by 1957 as a foregone conclusion especially with the FP itself having resigned to it in its talks with the government.
    The LSSP was deeply dived over the issue. I think thatEdmund Samarakkody in his book on the split has the full story, including how Colvin switched sides in a matter of months.
    Philip is only a lame excuse for the failings of NM & the party.

    Back stabbing & snakes in the grass are all too common in this Buddhist country of SL. We have short memories & worship wealth, irrespective of how its earned. Slimy Srisena stabbed MR in the back after enjoying his hoppers & later, Sirisena, in his own admission, even feared for his life but it’s all forgotten & forgiven, & Sirisena is back in the fold of MR. Politics in SL make strange bedfellows & its all about getting the cream & being in the game. If not for politics & ill gotten money, they have no other life.

    Like Macbeth, its a play, sit back & enjoy the entertainment, although, it maybe at a cost.

      When it comes to political backstabbing, intrigue and corrupt politicians, Britain can offer us a few lessons. Is the Scotland Yard clean? Is the BBC truthful?
      Have you heard of the famous ‘Zinoviev letter’ and Profumo affair? Not much has changed in more than half a century.
      What was clean about the politics of Brexit?

        Brexit was all about too many Sri Lankans in the UK:)

        I learned all the Indians and Sri Lankans voted for the Brexit in unprecedented numbers tipped the balance.

        The Brexit supporters learned after the Brexit the Brexieteers explaining the (following day of the election) how they going to have controlled immigration for the Toilet Washing/Old age careers experts from Africa and Asia/India now they got rid of the Europeans.

        Funny part was that the UK left Europe because they do not want the million arrivals in Germany over time coming to UK using movement.

        The Labour working class (red wall) voted saying they do not want immigrants in their door steps.

        The British Farmers complaint their vegetable are all rotting and they have no Brits to work on the farm as they too lazy and not so productive….when Borris said this all complaint he was rude…still the Brexit anti immigrant need seen to his victory…no other policy discussions were ever required after the immigration poster by Nigel Farage.

        The permanently unemployed Brits explained they will not work because the wages are not good in picking vegetables whilst sitting in the falling apart city centres…no one to teach them economics.

        UK may not be perfect (which country is?) but the politicians are better educated & behave better than the yobs in SL parliament. The bottom line is, which ever party is in power & whatever the party policies, the average citizen is not badly affected. We pay higher taxes but we get a return in the form of excellent health care, public services & overall a higher standard of living. The media holds them accountable unlike in SL, & as for the BBC, its way above & in no comparison to the SL govt. controlled biased TV stations. Scotland Yard is still highly regarded internationally, unlike the SL Police where honest officers are kept in remand indefinitely. The Brexit was all about immigration & politicised by nationalists, just like the Sinhala Buddhist supremacists in SL. As for the Profumo affair, I came to know about it from a movie based on the scandal. It came to light & Profumo paid the price. Aren’t SL politicians involved in sex scandals (they get hushed up & never come to light) or do you believe SL politicians follow the 5 precepts & observe sil on poya days?

        I merely made a comment on Prof. David’s observations.

          The point is that the British ruling class has taken the people for a ride time and again.
          Let is abandon the illusion that Britain is a good reference point for democratic and clean government.
          Much of our crisis is as a result of a system of government that Britain has and imposed on us.

            There is no point at all in this talk. There is no evidence for the line that says Britain taking voters for ride. Lankawe constantly manipulate election laws and repeatedly skips elections. There is not even an iota of what Britain left in Lankawe is there now. Siri Ma O convulsed to get rid of Privy Council and Senate had achieved it through Wildlife Sanctuary Socialistic Republic constitution. JR moved to Hitler’s constitution. There is nothing like these in British Constitution and most part of it is customary, voluntary, not rule based. All British leaders always obey to just those customs. In Brexit alone, three prime ministers resigned. Four elections and a referendum were conducted. Other than Dudley, for his failed government because of his partner JR’s sabotage, never anybody resigns for crimes or scandals in Lankawe. It is just bombastic talk saying that Britain imposed any government on the Sinhala Buddhist after more than in eight terms the government got ability to change constitution. Governments of Sinhala Buddhist changed their constitution more than 25 times. The world systems of 1). Universal Franchise or Democratic government, 2). Religion Buddhism and 3). market competition are beyond Lankawe Aanduwas and its acolytes comprehension. So they just twist and fool only Modayas, Muslims and Tamils have not fallen in this trap.

            Gone are the days that people thought the British are powerful.Anyways, it is still a powerful country to their former colonies incl. SL. If our politicians are clever, they should better work with Germans, French, Dutch and other north europeans. Brexit was their self-suicide.

            Health system in UK is the worst in Europe. They dream of coming to Germany and France if they are given the chance to get them treated well. Unemployement rates are much higher in todays UK .. very much comparable to that of Portugal and Spain. I got to know all inside information from few german dentists who worked in Nottingham for a period of 5 years and returned to Germany two years ago. They did not want their kids to go to school in UK..

            Dear SJ

            When do we take ownership for our children going around being trigger happy trained in neighbouring countries. when do we take ownership of our politicians/thugs got others killed to pave way for their politics in a democracy. When do we ask the UN to investigate all crimes in SL not selected crimes to suit the criminals?

            British did not do that..they left us a system we should be able to evolve and take it further to deliver justice for all. Several other Nations like Malaysia got independence in 1958 now belong to developed countries…the Ceylonese and Indians call this place home did not do the same thuggery they supported to FP/TULF for solutions?? crooks…feeding other lot of crooks.

            Despite British ruling CLASS taking the plebs for a RIDE TIME AND AGAIN plebs are relatively better off materially and enjoy freedom more than under feudal rulers Rajapaksas, and their Radala lords.

      Raj-UK,

      It is the people s total ignorance that dont let the message be outreached to the masses.
      :
      Just imagine that 19 year young girl from Rakwana did a great job, and has been continuing to protest against those who permamently destroy her area where also SINHARAJA forests is located. But govt men shamelessly visit her to intimidate her from her protests.
      :
      And the journalists who are now caught by MAHINDA BALU CHINTHANAYA- aka so called facists forces dont let the message be spread to the nation. Not even social media men aka YT beggars make slightest effort to paint the picture in favour of the people/environment… can you imagine ?
      :
      Today deforestration has become their lucrative avenue for their easy cash, But university dons and all others stay mum similar to amazonian sloths. 99% of srilankens that stay so indifferent are SINHALAYAs. We cant be proud of our race

    “Ultra-racist Sarath Weerasekera says a Cabinet Paper has been tabled to ban Muslim women wearing the niqab and Burqa”

    Burqa/niqab is banned in many European countries now. I guess 1/4 of Europe must be ultra-racists. Also, the Swiss banned minarets. Funny thing is, BBS was warning about Islamic extremism for months. People called them racists. Well, who was correct at the end.

      Lester Please wake up, why cant you get it, why should they raise this issue while all various other alarming issues are on the top of the list ? Is that to cover up ” SUGAR SCANDAL”. I dont mind you the kind of men and women becoming their slaves, but the name of god, please think of the future of the youth. Thank you. Burka or any other wearings, would not fit to any societies but this should have made long ago. 27 years were their years. I have never seen Burka or any similar muslim constumes in SL prior to late 80ties. For some advantages, Rajapkshes never spoke about it, in order to please muslim leaders, but all of sudden, to suppress sugar or other scandals that have now routinized in that criminal rule, is very unfair. Why knowing that people are ultra stupid ( I mean the majortiy) continue their mislead this way ?

        Leela,

        “why should they raise this issue while all various other alarming issues are on the top of the list ?”

        If Islamic extremism becomes a problem in SL, it will be much worse than Tamil Tiger terrorism. Compared to the Tamils, the Muslims are far wealthier. If Saudis and Emiratis start donating to “jihad”, Sri Lanka will have a tough time. Niqab/burqa ban is only the first step. Much more will have to be done. You are not a fan of Rajapakse, fair enough. However, he is the best man to handle this kind of situation.

      “Burqa/niqab is banned in many European countries now. I guess 1/4 of Europe must be ultra-racists. “

      Does it grant you or rest of the Sinhala/Buddhist permission to be racist or ban Burqa/niqab?

      Would you now consider covering up faces of all racists like yourself, particularly prince of darkness Sarath Weerasekera, as people have to be protected from negative vibs of these public racists?

        Vedda,

        When the Taliban took control of Afghanistan, niqab became mandatory for women. Same for ISIS-controlled areas in Syria and Iraq. Is this what you and your human rights friends agree with? No woman in her right mind wants to wear niqab.

      Gotabaya was seen in COURT premises very often, but he became the leader of th enation even if his performances are not even successful to that of a VILLAGE headman or PhI today.

      WW is not exactly my cup of tea.
      I am painfully aware of his occasional rowdy behaviour.
      But for his indiscretion in passport matters, has he been found guilty of any criminal offence by any court of law for you to claim that he has “a very bad criminal record”

        Yeah its a great legal and moral point.

        This island’s legal system is admirable.

        We are satisfied that every offence has been investigated impartially, charged all suspects, found guilty or innocent, served sentence/freed promptly, compensated for damages, …………. from 1956.

        It will be the 40th year remembrance of destruction of Jaffna Library.
        What investigation, who was charged, punished, …. although culprits were known to the rulers.

        Hundreds of thousands of innocent people were massacred in the South. Could you tell us how many members of the security forces or dead squad were charged and punished.

        Will you stop tickling us?

    What Is Weerawansa Trying To Do?

    You see Booruwansa is the mascot for the Mafia King’s circus. He is out to deceive people, that’s what he is doing.
