Why Did Gammanpila Consent Into Signing An MoU He Didn’t Agree With? JHU Questions

The Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU), says the issues that its member Udaya Gammanpila has suddenly raised concerning the Opposition Presidential candidate and his movement, after re-joining the government yesterday are extremely puzzling.

“Our MoU with Maithripala was signed upon receiving full consent of every member of the party’s central committee. Gammanpila did not express any objection to the decision on teaming up with the Opposition or regarding the MoU we signed with Maithripala Sirisena,” JHU leader Omalpe Sobitha thera had said speaking at a press conference this morning.

He had said that even two days ago,when Gammanpila had said he does not hold any reservations about the decision made to support common candidate Sirisena at the upcoming polls.

“It is puzzling as to how or why he would suddenly have an issue with our decisions just ten days into signing the agreement,” he added.

Meanwhile, JHU frontliner Patali Champika Ranawaka who had also expressed his views at the media briefing had said that they will not back-down or abnadon their cause due to crossovers or any kind of mud-slinging campaigns aimed at them.

    “Why Did Gammanpila Consent Into Signing An MoU He Didn’t Agree With? JHU Questions”

    probably the same answer like the one to, “why did Mithripala raise his hand to the UPNF nomination of MR as the presidential candidate” just before the hopper meal.

    The Anuradhapura rally pictures prove that Aiyo Sirisena will be gone to America on 9 January 2015. So the answer does not matter really.

      Check his Bank accoiunt over the past 2 years and now.

      Please include his wife, children, his relatives and buddies.

      Also overseas accounts.

      The answer to the puzzle is there.

      Same with Attanayaka, the NEW Health minter.

        Yes he lies. Checking his assets will confirm that.

        Looks like Medamulana MaRa is adding more liars to this Lying MaRa team

        All clauses in the MoU signed by JHU with the common candidate of the opposition Maithripala Sirisena were compiled with the direction of Councilor Udaya Gammanpila says the Leader of the JHU Ven. Omalpe Sobhitha Thero.

        Ven. Sobhitha Thero said this participating in a media conference held by the JHU today (12th).

        Councilor Gammanpila after joining the Mahinda faction said yesterday that he had an issue regarding the MoU signed by the JHU with Mr. Maithripala Sirisena but he kept silent without questioning the matter and as he couldn’t be silent any longer ‘chose the country instead of the party’.

        The exposure by Ven. Sobhitha Thero indicates the statement made by Councilor Gammanpila yesterday was a blatant lie say political analysts and add that Gammanpila had joined the government not on a policy matter but due to his greed for the provincial ministerial post.

      Is Srisena going to live in one of those houses owned by Basil’s family in and around exclusive area of California?

      Anuradhapura Rally was not a spontaneous attendance by local people, but an orchestrated show of fake crowd power, using several hundred buses to transport UPFA goons from the South and other parts of the country.
      Is MR going to do the same on the polling day? Bussing similar crowds from one poll station to another? It would be a violation of the democratic process, as it is already been done by UPFA to a considerable scale.
      It is the free vote cast on the day that what counts. Now that Prabhakaran is dead, which Tamil politician would be open to MR’s bribing this time to make a massive scale negation of Tamil votes. Who has been bribed to switch ballot boxes on the way to the counting station this time? Is it the Police or the STF, or if not Mervin the Vermyn’s thugs?

    Yes. Anybody can agree to disagree.
    Everyone is entitled to a second thought. That may be the reason Gamanpila took the decision he had to take.

    it is after a period of time that one is hit by second thoughts and by that time it is late to rectify matters or argue to be rectified.
    SO GAMANPILA DID THE NEXT BEST THING. REVERT……….

      Yes, it would have taken many years with open arms to cllect the 100M and the HAMMER offered to Gamanpilla if he started his 100 Rupee campaign. So, now he can sit and enjoy his perks offered by the stolen money of MR, GR,BR and the drug lords. These principleless Bas…rds needs to be whipped in public at Galle Face green

      It is regrettable that Gammanpila’s mother didn’t have second thought on having this brat.

      “SO GAMANPILA DID THE NEXT BEST THING. “

      “requested from the public to make this donation of Rs.100, even if it meant sacrificing the day’s dinner.”

          Thanks for raising a philosophical question.

          I have thought about my birth and have found the answer only recently.

          I was born wise but education ruined me, of course all my teachers were either Sinhalese or Tamils.

          I am still trying to recover from my traumatic experience as a student.

          We are not that advanced like Venga people to cross breed a beast with a beauty. We still lack knowledge of genetic engineering. On second thought after seeing the Sinhala/Buddhists no thanks.

            Dear Native,

            Under Contract law in Diaspora lands, there is a 3 working day cooling period, according to my Elders…

            Gammanpiala being the smart Abiththaya he is, used this loop hole in My Threes’ contract…

            Plus if Gamma singed it with the Ex Prez , she wouldn’t have known what day it is

            I am only going by the portrait which CT was kind enough to show us….

              From 13 June 2014 cooling off period has been changed to 14 days under certain conditions, according to my Elders who has access to Law Journals.

              What has UK’s cooling off period has to do with shameless Ganapathi Pillai? He should use Tamil Nadu Cooling Off period to wriggle out of Omalpe Sobitha thero hold.

              Are you saying shameless Ganapathi Pillai didn’t know CBK was drunk when he signed the agreement?

              Does Ganapathi Pillai think he is well placed to take the Dalits for a ride?

    Rev; Omalpe Sobitha Thero: There is nothing “PUZZLING” of this defection of your Deputy Secretary. Please trace the history from yesterday’s speech of the President: “A CUP OF COFFEE WOULD BRING RANIL TO UPFA”. Now go back to the history: HOW MANY EHELAPOLAS we had. Now connect the dots. So there is nothing “PUZZLING” in this event too. History speaks and repeats.

    Gammanpila was close to Gota and he has tasted the power and the perks it brought him. He is an opportunist who saw the defection of Hirinika as an opportunity to gain the Chief Ministership of the WP council.

    Gamma pills probably engineered the JHU defection from the UPFA to create this opportunity for himself. Good riddance I say because his presence in the opposition would have created a risk for it for he was close to Gota the barbarian.

    Some of the self proclaimed whiter than white JHU leaders are also amenable to political and financial inducements and Gammanpila is one example.

    Having watched Balaya, Satana and the like programs on the PVT TV senders whenever the Gommanpila himself took place – what made me clear was – the man though added his arguments – he is however a candidate exclusively being bound to his arguments but not to practises. Most example was at the time he made the biggest blunder to have staged with Gotabaya as a public servant for his campaign rallies, Gommanpila never admitted to hve done a big mistake. There he proved that his person is no means fair. We everyone as human beings make mistakes, but to defend us telling someting not acceptable in the aftermath should be not made by anyone. The man has never seen his own mistakes. This alone will say all about the person.

    I am so happy that Hirunika being a young politician to have made her mind being joined to the opposition. THERE SHE PROVED HER STRENGTH: SHE IS FEARLESS FIGURE::: ONLY AIM OF HER SEEMS TO FIND AND GET PUNISHED THE MURDERES OF HER FATHER. We the right thinking ones should rally round to support HIRUNIKA and all others that faced all injustices being practised by Megalomaniac Rajapakshes.

    The main reason for Udaya Gammanpila’s departure is money. When Basil showed him the “Dola Pideny” 500 million, this Five million dollar Man changed his side.

      This is the guy who wanted 100 Rs donation from his supporters before his WP Elections? Right? So, the man is a beggar, and no wonder his eyes rolled when he saw a few thousand Rupees. Don’t think MR had given him 500M, I reckon more like a rice packet and 5000 Rs.

    Well, the UNP hasn’t exactly given a strong stance on devolution/federalism issues, has it? Is it that the UNP feels that the Sinhalese can do well without the north and east? Is it that they would prefer separation of races? Is it that they are atoning for sins of their relatives? Maybe they feel that Sri Lanka will be safer, and thus preserved, from the militant West. Other side have their points also.

    Why puzzling? Gammanpila found out recently that collecting Rs 100 each from a million people is far more difficult and far less rewarding than collecting a bribe of Rs 200,000,000 in one go. Mara’s inducement for polevaulting is Rs 200 million. He has many more 200 millions left with him after looting the road building funds.

    Who is next in line to polevault?

    Gaman (travel) pila (team) is basically a shameless politician! He is a person who travels to a ream offering more money. He is like a prostitute who changes her partner at the height of the climax simply because she could hear a higher bid from the next room!

    I THINK HE SHOULD DISAPPEAR with the money has got???

    As a DS oldboy I know Gammanpila is a genuine patriot. He could not be bought over for money.

    However this time he made a mistake by standing wth MR and WW et al.

    Let me reveal the REAL reason for hs decision. We all DS Senanayakans(school) have our utmost respect to RIT Alles our founder prncipal. Ranil harrassed him in the 80s and as a result we lost our beloved principal and mentor.(he was transfered out.) So all DS puthun have a grudge against Ranil. So naturally Gammanpila too. He will not be on stage with Ranil.

    But unfortunately Gammanpila was approached by RIT Alles son Tiran Alles. Tiran is a broker for MR. He’s a masterbrainwasher and Gammanpila caught between his love for the school/RIT Vs the reformist agenda of the common opposition. Unfortunately Ranil is a leader in the opposition camp. Ironically Ranil and Tiran are Royalists. At the end of the day Gammanpila favoured Tiran despite he never was a DS boy.

    Ideally, given the conflct of interest, Gammanpila could have been neutral and and remained in the JHU. If he had so many problems with policy of Sirisena, he could have still waited till his manifesto was out. Gammanpila could have been an effectve person to change course of dirction if Ranl and Chandrika were to play a negatve role in a future Sirisena Govt.BUT to stand tall with MR now after severely critcising him on his governance is simply a twist and will never be forgiven by us DS puthun Gammanpila.

      Chan ,

      If what you say here is the truth ,then Gommanpila and rest of DS boys are damn fools !what is more important ? your school or your country ? what ever that RIT had with Ranil is no relevance here , bottom line is Gommanpila is a crook , don’t bring that good school’s name in to this ugly wheeler dealings here ,mate ! Gommanpila is a loyal supporter of Gotabaya , Gota was backing him from the beginning , when the initial agreement was to sign , this low life creature went missing claiming to be in the hospital , he didn’t want to be part of JHU without the backing of siblings , that is the truth !

    Gamanpilla is joining the rogues because he has a loan of Rs800m and Rajapakses are going to help him pay off this. Just like what they did to rambukewela. Rambukewela was going to go bankrupt and Rajapakses saved him with public money.

    Gammanpila was on a gammanak (journey) of his own. The JHU was his vehicle until it served his needs. He is an ill-educated man without a concience or abiding values. His many utterences over the years defined him as one of the burdens of our times. Rathana Thera has turned out to be a man with better values than either Champika or Gammanpila. I hope Rathana Thera will continue to evolve and become the concience of Sri Lanka.

    Udaya G is selfish and crossed over for his perks and other benefits but pretending to be saint and very nationalistic. If he did not agree with the text of the agreement between MS and JHU he could have revolted the same day. Probaby he waited for a few days to increase bargaing value to benefit personally. The public, now, is very intelligent and would not gulp the stories of politicians who jump to the goverment side and say they did it for country’s sake. They all would be dumped in the next elections.

    The main point of contention here is not MR or My3. Sri Lanka need changes given the current political set up in the country. The common candidate of the opposition wants to bring about a change in the system meaning… abolish the executive presidency, forming a Government and a Parliament with all parties together with the objective to bring constitutional changes necessary for the country. This is the need of the hour. I hope our nation will stand up and give a thumbs up to these changes if we are to prosper as country in the coming years. Another 8 years of same rule would be very harmful as we have seen in the immediate last 4 years.

I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Appreciate it!

      “Will Crafty Sira’s ” My Three” CBK, Ranil , Sambandan allow even Ven Omalpe Sobitha to do what is in his MOU?.”

      K.A Sumanasekera,

      Memo of Understanding is just a beginning of the journey (mela) and never a destination. Try to reflect on any successful memo you have seen in life??

      Patience hombre there are much more important issue for your Dalit concept.

      1.The US Dollar has been plunging along with the price of Crude.(Russia losing at 40% on sale with the decline and the main buyers are of course Europeans)

      2.The SL Rupee has been undervalued for years so the Dalit woman sent as slaves to Medieval Middle East looses while the idle rich connected (kappan) sihala/tamil/muslim can buy the dollar for less rupees and import or travel. I see most of those faces in the west of folk who would not have travelled otherwise.

      How much is the family pocketing on this oil and gas in dollars. Former Justice Silva threw aside a oil contract because it was cheaper in the spot. Today it is even more – the spot buying is bench mark for cheap quality oil.

      Wont you spend some energy for your `dalit folk` and ask why no lowering of oil at the pump to make late Ambedakar smile in his grave??

        Javi, at least focusing on Economic issues is a breath of fresh air among these hyped up My Three supporters who have been totally programmed to believe in anti Rajapaksa rhetoric, and bullshit promises about dynamiting the Presidency and enactingting a new Rule Book.

        As if it is like demolishing the Old Roxy in Wellagardes and building a 25 storey new block for the Elite , Anglicans and the Diasporians.

        Even that can not be done in 100 days and I am ready to put my money on it.

        You r right… Price of Petrol ,Jobs, and travel to work and back in a secure environment are the main issues which are important for the great majority of the inhabitant population, who happen to be Dalits.

        Bret crude has dropped to USD 60 a Barrel. USD gone up against all major currencies.

        Even our Diasporians buying Lexues at bargain basement prices are heading for an end.

        Our Dalits remmitances will also shrink as well as their poor dependants will collect less LKRs.

        There is not much any Govt can do about these developments,

        Except the “My Three’s mates” , who are promising miracles, to go along with the soon to enlisted our First Saint from Srilanka…

        Latest I hear is that My Three has promised Govt Pensions to all Private Sector employees ..

        Don’t know whether the Elite and the Industrialists say “hear.. hear”..

        But I thought even our Govt servants are on EPF now a days..

        Is My Three going to give them the Pension too?…
