Which Mahinda Chinthana? Rajapaksa Or Hathurusinghe? Asks Justice Wigneswaran

Justice C.V. Wigneswaran , Chief Minister Candidate for the Tamil National Alliance queried as to which Chinthana was in force for the Northern Province. “Was it Mahinda Rajapaksa Chinthana or Mahinda Hathurusinghe Chinthana?” Justice Wignswaran questioned. He made remarks above at a TNA Propaganda Meeting held in Kokuvil last Sunday.

Justice Wigneswaran

Justice Wigneswaran in his speech said; “Last  few meetings I have been referring to the undue interference visible from the Armed Forces resident in the North  in relation to our Northern Provincial Council Election. I chanced to find a good example of it today. Today’s Sunday Thinakaran, a pro-government paper, carries a news item wherein the Commanding Officer of the Army in the North, Mr. Mahinda Hathurusinghe, is reputed to have given an interview to the Thinakaran stating that he strongly objects to Mano Ganesan who had come into the North as a Tourist venturing to criticize  interference from the Army at the local polls. He went on further to say that I am looking at the Northern politics through my Colombo glasses and that he is surprised at my Supreme Court judgments. Who is this Hathurusinghe? He is after all a paid Government Servant. What right does he have to criticize Mano Ganesan or me? If any prejudicial statements had been made by anyone it was his duty to inform his Minister in Charge and it is that Minister who has the right to answer such criticism. Who has given this Government Servant the rights of his Master? It is such unwanted impertinent statements by the members of the Armed Forces which have prompted the Tamils of the Northern Province to ask for the withdrawal of the Army from the Northern Province. Does this mean that there is no more the execution of Mahinda Rajapaksa Chinthana and that it has been replaced by Mahinda Hathurusinghe Chinthana? Whatever said and done Mahinda Rajapaksa is the President of this Country. He is the Commander of the Three Forces. That a Government Servant functioning under the President-(Minister in Charge) voices his sentiments without recourse to the President is a shame to the whole Country. Let me ask this Public Servant to stop commenting about the People. This Government Servant should not think that merely because he is armed he has the freedom to say anything he wants and frighten the People.

But we are learning a lesson from this episode. The Armed Forces must be kept well under control. They should not be allowed to transgress their limits. If we do, it would bring untold calamities to the Government as well as to the State. It is to question such indiscretions on the part of the governing elite that the TNA is asking for 30 seats out of a possible 36. This is only an example I have given. But if a proper inquiry takes place it would be possible to assess the extent to which interference on the part of the Armed Forces take place in the lives of the ordinary people. Since after the 18th Amendment we cannot expect proper impartial inquiries into these matters it might be necessary to call for an International Inquiry. To do so we must have two thirds majority in the Council. Hope all of you could join together and ensure a good victory.”

      Gota the white van goon is turning the military into the new HIGH CASTE of Sri Lanka and destroying military discipline because of MISSION AND MANDATE CREEP!
      The military MISSION AND MANDATE Creep that is detrimental to the economy and military discipline is evident in the economy and growth of MILITARY BUSINESS (tourism, hotels, farms etc) which is BAD for DISCIPLINE of the military which is running amok and thinks that it is above the law today with Gota the Goon’s protection.
      The military clearly needs to be down sized and confined to barracks and military businesses sold off and privatized.. and all the perks given to the military need to be removed. Gota is building up a military dictatorship as protection against a war crimes trial in the Hague!

        Do you think MR is still in control? The way the army and police have acted above the law in many recent incidents such as the weliweriya, Katunayake, Chilaw, Welikada bringing international condemnation on the President and not to mention Kudu Duminda murdering a fellow politician in broad daylight and in CJ Bandaranayake’s matter where the president had said he didn’t want to take the course of action to remove her but had to, says something is wrong. Will MR add to his woes with further HR violations from his govt? Has things spun out of control with someone else calling the shots? I wonder if it is a last minute effort to gain control that the police department is to be moved from Defense Ministry control to another ministry under the president; here again another ex-army chap is put in charge.May be you readers in this forum can answer this question; IS MR STILL IN CONTROL OR IS THERE A SHADOW CONTROLLING MR?

    General Hathurusinghe ranks among several of today’s generals whose plurality is like coconut trees around every house and corner! Back in the day, two or three generals the whole army had in force were all capable, charismatic, smart officers that came from families that were right up there. They did not “have” to tow such nylon ropes to ensure a smooth journey during the last few years of their career. In fact, they would ask people to fly a kite of a rope is given and they are asked to tow it!

    Today we have officers posted in foreign missions that can barely write 15 sentences without mistakes in English. This regime thinks ass-lickers can comprehend diplomacy and bypass the work of career diplomats! Hathurusinghe has brought shame to senior brass in that he has effectively brought the army to the level of the police, he is no better than goons like Anura Senanayake!

    Both thoughts (chinthanayas) are equally shallow. The Sri Lankan army is said to be one most disciplined, except when they act in the most barbaric manner which is most often displayed when it comes to the north and the east with of course the exception of Weliweriya. Bensen

    This is neither the Myna ;-) Chinthanaya nor the Hathurusinghe Chinthanaya…what we have is the Majority Chinthanaya at work today. After all it is the idiotic majority who endorsed and voted for the despotic Myna RajaPox not once but twice.
    A few of the majority have realised their mistake by now, but it will take another 20 to 30 Weliweriya style incidents for the rest of them to wake up from their kiribath induced war victory sleep.

        The Tamils refrained from voting and allowed the Sinhalese to vote on their own, to see if the SInhalese on their own can make the right decision in selecting their leader. And the Sinhalese voted MR in!

        Now, you say it was Tamils who brought MR to power, because they didn’t vote. Of course it was the Sinhalese votes that brought MR to power. How come the Sinhala majority elected MR if he is not the one you guys preferred. Why didn’t the Sinhala majority choose the right leader?

        Are you implying that the Tamils should have neutralized/diluted the Majority vote of the Sinhalales because the SInhala Majority is incapable of making the right decision?

          Tamils boycotted because Prabhakaran wanted MR in power. So you were the ones principle in chosing him.

          Statistically one can say rest of SL chose MR, but the difference between two candidates were minimal that suggest larger part of Sinhalese didnt like Mahinda.

          The point in boycotting was electing MR. That is undeniable!

    Good question? There seems to be some confusion over the Chintana. Maybe MR should organise a training for all military officers on Mahinda Chintana Idiri Dhakma.

    It only serves to confirm what Navi Pillai observed, that the country is moving in an authorative direction. Soldiers should stick to fighting battles not ruling the country.

    General Sarath Fonseka who have his loyalists within the military said “Huthurusinghe is Keeping about four to five soldiers as handymen, he has been carrying out propaganda in support of independent candidates, who are contesting on behalf of the government,

    “He is also getting the posters of anti-government candidates removed. Due to such dishonest Army commanders, proper duties cannot be fulfilled”

    This shows that Huthurusinghe is a self appointed VICEROY of King Mahinda for the Northern colony. He is trying to split the votes bank of TNA with the misplaced hope of securing a victory for his kingdom.

    Hope the voters in the NP heed to the timely need of the northern province and vote to TNA to win 30 seats and enable Justice Vigneswaran call for an international inquiry into Huthurusinghe’s misdeeds so that all he has been doing will come to light. This will facilitate people in Jaffna to ead a normal life.

      How dare you question General Hathurusinghe who has impeccable service record?

      David Blacker could vouch for General’s honesty, integrity and what not. Being a Tamil paper Sunday Thinakaran could say anything to stir up situation which would benefit General’s opponents and blacken his good name.

      Is the serving General contesting the Provincial Council elections as the chief ministerial candidate?

      If so the people of the North should show their gratitude and elect him uncontested.

        Native Vedda,

        You aught to know Sunday Thinakaran is run by the government and its jouranalists are government servants. Huthurusinghe is responsible for burglaries, attack on journalists and protest marchers that even the opposition leader said during his visit of the peninsula. There are a large number of solders in every corner of every street in Jaffna, still these crimes take place and not a single culprit caught or brought to justice.

        Gen SF fought to defeat LTTE and was superior to Gotabaya in the same school. He is the real hero but president’s youngest brother rules the day, this is Sri Lankan politics.

        People in Jaffna and other districts in the north will show their gratitude to those who are genuinely interested in their lives, which will be reflected in the results of the election.

        Catholic Church of Jaffna recommended Gen. Hathurusinghe for a “peace prize” for few millions and he got it from Phillipines.

          Huthurusinghe was not recommended for a peace prize by the Catholic Church of Jaffna but by the then Government Agent, Imelda Sugumar, (who claimed then that there were no High Security Zones in Jaffna) and Daya Master but the religious priests attended the meeting of the award, otherwise, the Maj General sends his soldiers to shoot and kill the priests and devotees. The military rules Jaffan under the authoritarian military governor who was appointed by the president.

            Catholic religion is the official religion of Phillipines.

            Catholic Church of Phlipines is not under the government agent of Jaffna.

        Impeccable service record, and that too vouched by your bosom pal David Blacker. You ought to return to your jungle roots to revitalise your faculties. This general has usurped the authority and powers of the president. Being a military man, he cannot interfere or pronounce statements on civil matters. For a scumbug like him you are another scumbug with the same mind. The only difference is that you can still return to your roots to find your place.

    I think Hon.Vigneshwaran made a small mistake by saying Mahinda Hathurusingha is paid Govt. servant. Actually he is a servant of Sri Rohana Manaranjana and Grease piya, maintained at the cost of General Public. I am sure tomorrow Dallas Allahpperuma will say that this is Mahinda Hathurusingha’s personal view and not the Govt. View and apologize on behalf of Armed forces.

    Now a days public servants can make any statements as they wish. Secretory of defense openly says about some Muslim and other extremism while reminding India that Sri Lanka is a Sovereign Country. But there is no any Muslim leader or anybody to remind him that he is a Public Servant Maintained by the General Public. he is acting like he is above the God.

    We have few “Chinthanaya’s” in the country now. In the north “Mahinda Hathurusingha Chinthanaya” In the south “Gotabaya Chinthanaya” In the country “Mahinda Chinthanaya”

    Exactly Iqbal! If the Northern voters exercise due diligence this despotic regime can be taught a good lesson. I hope the war hardened Northern Tamils will see to it that the war criminals will be hauled before an international war crimes tribunal and also set a precedence of not succumbing to intimidations and attacks by the vegetable selling galquarry army

    This chinthana or that chintana are just similar to the words that his promises about safeguarding the rights of Muslims. But in the reality, he has appointed his brother GOTA to work on harming them. This is the Chintanaya that he is learnt. In the very same manner, MR had not uttered a word at the time, Rathupaswala people felt that they have nobody to protect them. This man but goes on acting on the stage – yes, I will protect you all.. may be he is speaking from the other end mostly.

    Enough has been said about the conduct of the Army with regard to the election and before that about their interference in the civil affairs. Ex Armed Forces Officers(e.g.N.P.Governor,E.P.Governor,Trinco G.A.and now the Police too coming under an Ex-Army Officer)should be kept far away from civilian matters.The fact that Northern and Eastern Province Governors are Armed Forces Officers(Ex or otherwise) under 13A shows that it is Army rule that is in existance in both these provinces.Civilian Officers are afraid of them. As usual the Army Spokesperson and the Government will deny everything. Elections Commissioner is powerless. Without 17A there can’t be good governance. Further we need Election Commissioners like Seshan of India to be innovative and brave even under the given powers if there is to be any semblence of a fair Elections.

      peoples TAKRAN eating is not advisable,
      one day they have to vomit not only TAKARAN, But also bowels too.

      we know how they removed all the Roofing sheets of Government building and warehouses and sold in Black markets.

      HATURUSINGHO And Gootha are getting very good profits from loading TAKARAN AND YAKADA,
      all war materials, burnt steel and vehicles,
      steel from Roofs of houses and workshops, hospitals,
      P M B warehouses, collected from Pointpeduru to Pulmudai,

    Are Vellala Wiggy’s whinges fair and legit?.

    What is Mano Ganeshan doing on Vellala Territory?.

    Even if Vellalas score and get their Eelaam, will there be room there, for Ganeshan’s people?.

    Shouldn’t Ganeshan be handing out how to vote cards to his people in the other two Provinces ?.

    What is so repulsive about Hathurusinghe talking about Wiggy’s birth place and his permenent residence in the Capital?.

    The ex captives who the Vellalas have taken charge of now , of course had a horrid time not that long ago, without Jobs, without Schools, without Hospitals without their Kids at home, without Electricity. without even water to drink after the Tank was up rooted.

    Did Wiggy and his new Vellala mates go without any of those basics?.

    Even first year Law students in the Diaspora lands talk about dissenting judges and judgements because they think “it is cool”.

    My Elders tell me that Mr ex Justic Wiggy,was a serial dissenter.

    Wouldn’t that be real cool if he was in the Diaspora Lands.

    Hathurusinghe having a dig at these dissensions is no big deal.

    One more thing.

    Mr Wiggy asks, Who is Hathurusinghe?

    Hathurusinghe is no Sinhala vellala for sure,.

    How can he be with a name starting with Hathuru?.

    He is more likely to be up my alley in that aspect. Thank heavens we don’t discriminate along caste lines any more.

    Vellala Wiggy who is new to the the North perhaps doesn’t know that Hathurusinghe saved the War Widows from those horrible rapits, the “Grease Yakkos”.

    Perhaps Mr Sambandan should have briefed him, specially considering the time and effort that the former put in to these Grase Yakkos to bring them to the attention of even the World Leaders in the Diaspora Lands.

      Fathima, there is no religious group on the face of the earth that teaches its followers to blindly follow extremist teaching than the islam, to the extent terrorist movements are formed on such teachings of anger and hate. Furthermore the inequality among men and women within your own community such as requiring the women cover from head to toe (gloves, fish net to cover the eyes) in public, whilst men ogle other women who show a bit of skin (see how our own housemaids return from the middle-east with a bun in the oven). Whatever plans you have of becoming the largest minority I am sure will not materialise as the BBS will make sure of that.
