Wijeyadasa-Nandasena Spat Goes Viral: Ruling Party MP Says He Fears For His Life After President’s Threats

Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) MP Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe’s revelations about a threatening, foul-mouthed telephone call from President Nandasena Gotabaya Rajapaksa has laid bare the massive fault-lines within the beleaguered administration and the state of mind of an increasingly desperate head of state, political sources told Colombo Telegraph.

On Friday (16) morning at 9AM President Rajapaksa telephoned Rajapakshe, berating him in profane language over the press briefing he had held at the Abhayaramaya Temple on Thursday. A couple of hours later, Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe summoned the press corps to his Nawala residence, and revealed the contents of the phone call.

“The president used language on the phone call that was unbecoming of a head of state. I had no choice, I replied him in the same language,” the ruling party MP told the media.

Rajapakshe said he hoped that the President was calling to discuss matters with him to seek a resolution. “We know he is politically immature, so I was hoping he wanted to discuss things rationally and find a way forward,” the MP said. Instead, he found himself at the receiving end of a series of threats.

Sources told Colombo Telegraph that the President had been hysterically angry during the phone call – repeatedly referring to Rajpakshe as “thamuse”. After several minutes, Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe responded:

Thamuse dan oka thiyanna naththnam thamusege heart (condition) wadiweyi” (Put the phone down now before your heart condition gets worse).

President Rajapaksa underwent a heart bypass in May-June 2019 and suffered several complications pursuant to the surgery. His doctors at the Mount Elisabeth Hospital in Singapore remain concerned about his post-surgical condition, Colombo Telegraph learns.

MP Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe said he had lodged an official complaint regarding the threats from the President with the Inspector General of Police (IGP). “Since the President threatened me, I fear for my life and the safety of my family,” MP Rajapakshe told the media briefing at his residence on Friday.

The spat between the MP and his President stems from a Thursday afternoon press briefing held by Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe and a priest formerly aligned to the Rajapaksa-led SLPP and ardent loyalist of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa. The priest, who once donated an entire wing of his Narahenpita temple to the Joint Opposition, which made it the headquarters of the campaign to restore political power to Mahinda Rajapaksa following his 2015 defeat, is now one of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s staunchest critics. In fact, the Chief Monk is now one of a dozen or more petitioners who have filed legal action at the Supreme Court against the Colombo Port City bill, which he says will carve out a separate state in Sri Lanka that will be under the sole control of China.

The priest also received a phone call from the President regarding his involvement in Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe’s media briefing on Thursday. The Abhayarama Chief Incumbent held his own press conference on Friday, pledging that he will not be moved by “threats and intimidation”.

See video:

During the press conference on Thursday (15), Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe, seated on left hand of Muruttutuwe Ananda Thero Chief Incumbent of the Abhayaramaya temple pitched into the ruling Rajapaksa family over the Government’s proposed Colombo Port City Economic Commission Act.

Rajapakshe made particularly harsh statements at the press conference which were so controversial that mainstream media organizations declined to broadcast the segments. The SLPP MP representing the Colombo District accused Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Basil Rajapaksa of being “two American citizens” who had settled their families in a “safe and secure” country and returned to Sri Lanka “on holiday” to rob the island blind. They would eventually return to their true homeland, Rajapakshe claimed. But the children of Sri Lanka would have no country left once the Rajapaksa brothers were done stripping it of its resources and selling off parts of the nation to China, Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe warned.

See video:

Rajapakshe said the President was a mere puppet and accused master deal-maker Basil Rajapaksa of being a crook who was running the Government. Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa had been completely sidelined and treated poorly, the SLPP MP claimed.

Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe also attacked the President’s disastrous Conversations with the Village programme that has made him the object of severe ridicule. “For god’s sake Mr President stop these stupid conversations with the village. Stop engaging in these juvenile, immature things,” he mocked.

“This is a burning country,” MP Rajapakshe said. He claimed that the country was on the verge of serious collapse economically and the global powers were aligning against Sri Lanka because of the Government’s policies.

“Because we are becoming a colony of China, India is angry and is hitting at us. The US is attacking us. The EU is attacking us. Who is going to save this country today?”

The attack was the harshest criticism yet of the ruling family and President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s disastrous tenure in office. Sources within the Government claim it has been too much for the President, a man used to having his way, to bear coming from his own loyalists. A clear pattern is also emerging, political analysts opined, that all those who are now publicly opposing Gotabaya Rajapaksa and his policies, are full of praise for Mahinda Rajapaksa who still holds office as Prime Minister. Soon after the Thursday press briefing featuring Wijeyadasa and the Abhayarama Chief monk, SLPP Chairman G.L. Peiris and Minister Bandula Gunewardane rushed to the temple. Sources said the two officials tried to pacify the monk.

For several years, Nandasena Rajapaksa has kept his temper, after disastrous interactions with foreign journalists and local reporters revealed the then defence secretary’s serious anger management problems. Sources said over time, Rajapaksa had obtained assistance to deal with his rage. Now, as his Government grows increasingly unpopular, President Rajapaksa – once the revered and feared chief executive of the final war with the LTTE – is mercilessly mocked as a failure, a cry-baby and a completely inept leader. Sources close to the President told Colombo Telegraph that lacking a sense of humour, Nandasena Gotabaya Rajapaksa simply does not have the temperament to endure the mocking. When his own party MP joined a Rajapaksa aligned chief monk to take arms against his proposed Port City law and accused the war-winning president of separating and selling off pieces of the country to the Chinese, something appeared to snap, the sources said.

Despite its unshakable two thirds majority in Parliament and attempts to completely militarize governance, the Gotabaya Rajapaksa administration has failed to meet its election commitments in 18 months in office. A sea of protests in different parts of the island, rampant corruption, ineffective leadership on management of Covid-19 and the vaccination drive, ceaseless deforestation and cronyism has made the Government unpopular in record time.

The President’s sole saving grace has been the unwavering loyalty of the country’s two largest broadcast networks Hiru TV, Derana and Swarnavahini which filters the ineptitude of the ruling regime before disseminating it to the large audience they command around the island. But in the age of social media, alternative news source are emerging to bridge the information gap, prompting Government moves to propose laws that will criminalize news it deems “fake” on social media.

Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe is a pole-vaulter extraordinaire who has been irked for months over the Government’s failure to offer him a ministerial portfolio. Rajapakshe strongly back the Nandasena Gotabaya Rajapaksa candidacy for president, and once even boasted that he had blocked the former Defence Secretary’s arrest as Minister of Justice under the Yahapalanaya administration. Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s crooked deals with MiG and the state funds he misappropriated to build a monument to his deceased parents, had already made it clear that the President’s hands were not clean when Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe backed him for president, analysts said. “Wijeyadasa talks of threats now, as if it wasn’t clear at the time of his presidential campaign that Gotabaya was involved in the murder and abduction of journalists and rugby players,” the analyst noted.

        Leela,

        Vultures want the country to descend into chaos so they can come out from the shadows. UNP, TGTE, Global Tamil Forum, TNA, etc. What is that “country”, Leela? https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/5/5d/TGTE_Logo.jpg/220px-TGTE_Logo.jpg. Tamil Diaspora teach their children that they are from “Tamil Eelam.” See how they have carefully edited out “Sri Lanka” on their imaginary map. LTTE lost the war, but these people are ready with their legions of lawyers and “human rights” organizations to carve out a fake state, by hook or crook. Gotabaya is the only obstacle.

          Lester,

          First of all, tell us, if NATIONAL SAFETY is guranteeed today than prior to his presidency ?
          :
          ANSWER IS NO. Today srilanka is more insecure. I now have no doubt, they Rajapkshes should have been ones behind that EASTER SUNDAY DISASTER. … meaning this buggers returned to power—– killing innocient srilankens. ::::

          — If you are not mentally ills, within first 15 months, UNP led govt achieved a lot for the benefit of the masses. Bond scam was though a failure, but compared to huge losses made by MR regime, it was just peanuts. Anyways, media mafia painted the picture in favour RAJAPAKSHES criminals.
          :
          And Gotabaya is not at all an obstacle to even a Gramasevaka, let alone not to an office pion.
          That is saddest truth looking at his perfoformance as a the head of state. He is the most incapable of all his predecesors so far. Even those PISSU monks, stood by him for election behave today, like the defeated dogs that make every effort to hide their tails behind the rear legs.

          –If our nature to raise their head, only wayout would be to allow ONE LAW TO ALL – even if the bugger came to power lying and making sky-earth promises, not even a single out of their stage pledges fulfilled today.

            That is why the bugger himself, behaves today as if a defeated animal, would not come out of his cage, being unable to face the nation.

            If you would please seriously study what his presidency has achieved for the benefits of the masses as of today:
            — entire world of powerful nations has now blacklisted the country putting to all the evil folks in the world today.#

            –Not even a single would agree with giving a loan to srilanka today, making us only dependent on the china.

            — Just imagine, in a few weeks now, the country would not be able to pay of their oil… and unprecedented levles that the country would have to face in the reality. ::

            And to remind you again, I am telling you that LTTE has not been defeated, nor has JVPrs been defeated. Entire world has been supporting them today. If OUR criminals were able to go for Crime INVEISTGATIONS, we would not have fallen to that levels today. To clear the doubts, why not go for crime investigations ?
            I have no doubt, cattle thieves of Weeraketiya would continue their SOMALIAN style politics, they would turn our motherland end up becoming a Cambojya.
            :
            Just imagine, now GOSL has not ordered the SECOND dose of vaccines that is a must those who were injected with first dose.

              Ranil was warned 10 days before Easter attacks. He did not put Colombo on high alert status. Bugger was in a foreign country when the bombs went off. When I visited India few years back, all 5 star hotels were protected with security guards and metal detectors. Shangri-La bombing could have been EASILY prevented. Zaharan was well-known to intelligence services for incitement. Even Muslims were reporting Zaharan to the police. But they went after BBS instead to get votes from Muslim community. You complain about monks. These monks were the ones warning about Islamic terror while Ranil Siri were selling the country for votes.

          OK,. What is this culture you are trying to defend? A culture where a semi-educated coward can be elected president? Where the same coward then assumes royal powers to murder and pillage as he likes, meanwhile making sure his children are safe in the US. Is that your definition of patriotism? Since you are a US citizen too, that’s to be expected.

              Dear nimal,
              .
              Jokes are all very well, if they finally lead to people seeing the light; but not too many practical jokes, please!
              .
              This is one. I kistened to it all. For all Sri Lankans “Namal Rajapaksa” is current Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa’s son.
              .
              Never reduce politics to a joke and leave it at that. Clicking on this link reveals this to be a different guy with the same name whom, I think, the UNP uncovered, at some point and nominated to confuse the least literate voters.
              .
              He contested the 2015 Presidential Elections and obtained 15,726 votes – 0.13% of valid votes. He again contested in 2019, and obtained 9,497 votes; that is 0.07% of valid votes.

              Perhaps you were a sucker like me to ferret the details. Done! Now tell us more about this fellow.
              .
              Even if the joke is played, lessons must later be driven home. Actually, this is boring, we could be better employed, or just relax, doing nothing. I know nothing of this guy; it’s up to you to now teach us the lessons.

          vultures ? where do you find them most ? To my little boy, 15 years old, nephew would not take long, but would point the finger at POHOTTUWA from top to the bottom.

          I assume you are sanity minded and no neurological tests would further be necessary. Why I am thinking so, because your thoughts and minds sound to be not racial as that of Eagle eye.
          However, we dont need to have studied rocket science to understand that you are a paid lackey to cover up Nandasini and his affairs again and again. I am doubtful, why you or the like folks, also with some sanity fall down that deep ? why constantly make every effort to defend high criminals and their further activities ?
          Is it not against your heart conscience ?
          Besides, If you are honest with srilanken issues, would you ever be able to hang on with known wrong men ?

            I usually resecpt human beings with great values and dignity. To me when looking at you and the ilk, your bunch of gods you constantly kneel down are real criminals. That is crystal clear even to my little ones. We are all misled by SRILANKA’s biased judiciary as of today. So no options left before us. We only need to rely on healthy public perception, people’s verdict.
            If you are hearted and sane you could better Listen to our unbiased commenters like Mr SINHALA MAN, Old codger, Native Vedda and the few others. They can guide you well. No more court investigations would be necessary.

            vultures are filled in pohottuwa than any party compositions, is public secret. No further arguments would be necessary. There are sand diggers, chain robbers, land robbers, alleged high criminals with record high crime investigations reside under rulers than anywhere else.

      nimal fernand: This “Killing Stinct” is embedded in the “Family Gens”. The father of these “CR”, MR, BR ,DR & GR was a “Drunkard” and SWRDB never ever made him to a high position in the SLFP Govt. Such people make “Monuments” to “Ecology” the dead.I do not know you remember, during the time MR was President, there was one State Minister who was very critical of the activities of the Regime. One day, after a meeting at Temple Trees, this State Minister was summoned to an “Inner Room” for a one-to-one discussion. That “State Minister” was “Pronounced” dead in the room and subsequently, it was stated the cause of death as a “Heart Attack”. Good to know the “History”. Isn’t it?

      Dear Sensitive Readers,
.
Let s summarise the nature of WIJEDASA’s sick behaviour:
      b>who is this Wijedasa Rajapakshe ? Why is he acting today as if he is born yesterday ?
.
He was noneother than DEAL DASA of Previous govt, who was the minister of Justice. He could change a lot for a better srilanka. But his corrupted nature was, he would never put RAJAKSEHS behind the bars. Consequently, bitch s sons and their popularity grew as if they were saints and may have done nothing in such crimes.
:
Those victimized families, not forgetting LASANTHA WICKRAMTHUNGA, Thajudeen wasima, Ekanaligoda, YOUNG boys from colombo tamil families, welkada prisoners, Rathupaswala innociet people, journos that left the country and got caught by abudctions and extrajudicial killings, this list would not cease..
–
Remember how DEALDASA reacted against high CRIME INVESTIGATIONs of GR, MR, NR, BR and all other Rajapskehs during that period. As a result, the bugger was sacked in the previous govt, and was marigalized as a defeated dog…. but very same man has the audacity to come forward today and to address the same audience… by mixed thoughts.
… and he twisted the very information misleading the nation to the very manner media fraudsters of the mlechcha society constantly permit it.

        b>Youth with some sanity would raise the question today, as to why the WIJEDASA AS A LAWYER minister of justice, failed to do his job at the time, as he was the powerful MINISTER of justice under GOOD GOVERANCE ? What would be the answer to them ? The bitch s son did not do the job well, and let high criminals to return to power. How can he be clearner today ?
–
if RAJAPAKSEHes should be jailed, WIJEDASA should be jailed to the very same manner for not having done his job going by SRILANKEN law and order as it is read in the paragraphs.
.
b>Is he clean by his politics ?

          As a President Counsel Wijethasa has always been faithful to the President and ex-presidents.
          . That is why he supported the 20th Amendment expecting a ministerial position. While President has to be kept in his place, a ‘kettle cannot call the pot black’ or vise versa.

        Dear leelagemalli

        Here you have spelt Wijedasa’s surname correctly: Rajapakshe
        .
        Gota and Mahinda spell their surname this way: Rajapaksa
        .
        Colombo Telegraph always gets it right, you often don’t. Why?
        .
        Is the difference in spelling consistent, is it significant? We all want to slay both lots of dragons, but we can’t get a simple thing like that correct. No wonder we keep failing.

          S.M,
          Curiously enough, there is a caste difference between “Rajapaksa” and “Rajapakshe”.
          Rather like the Anglican Wirasinhas and the non-Anglican Weerasinghas.

          WR is a Rajapakshe, not a Rajapaksa. That’s why Gota called him a “hora Rajapaksa”. I wouldn’t be surprised if he said “low caste” as well, but even WR wouldn’t reveal that in public.

      Dear sensitive readers,

      Music can make wonders. That is for sure.
      :
      I think LOCAL muscians and film makers to come forward and help transporting the message to the masses. We are just 22 millions. Indians are 1400 millions. And indians have numerous beliefs and life styles as no country would have it in this planet.Nevertheless, its togetherness is exemplary.

      See, as you will see in the following video clip, two different religious adherents as young singer contestants, make their efforts to wear the traditional constumes of the other, in order to transport the message, that ” we are all indians albeit race, religion and other barriers are there”.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2c2sXhIcBTY
      .
      I have never seen any SINHALA BUDDHISTS (BUDDHAGAMA adherents) display this much of tolerance as is the case in neigbouring india. At least minority fractions should support to transport message outreaching stupid masses. Then only, reconciliation could be born in the average mind set. What matters is always – average mindset.

It was this rat who gave a platform and safe haven for the extremist sinhala groups such as bbs during the previous government. All that pandering to buddhist extremists created groups who eventually took the live of innocent people on Easter Sunday 2019.

    The truth of the matter is Wijedasa is today reaping what he sowed by supporting a thug and a murderer to become the President. Wijedasa did his “monkey trick” by jumping from one party to another expecting a Ministerial position from SLPP, but he did not get it. So he is basically mad over it, but with the Port City debacle he has found a topic to attack the Govt and the President. He is not doing it because he loves the country. If Gota had given him the Justice Minister post he would have been defending this bill today to get it passed. Wijedasa type of politicians should be kicked out of politics for good. But that does not mean that then they can, if they are honestly worried about the country, fight from outside. Why is Wijedasa not resigning from being a member of SLPP? Why is the Speaker not taking action against the threat issued to Wijedasa by the President, why is the Speaker not making a statement. Opposition must demand the Speaker to openly criticize the President’s action and speech, or else this Constitution violating speaker should be kicked out as well.

    My comments here does not mean I am defending Gota.

      Perhaps there are others of the same ilk in the SLPP, who support this sentiment and are silent and do not want to expose themselves. Save themselves being consigned as dead after a heart attack in the back rooms of you know where.
      (2)”Why is the Speaker not taking action against the threat issued to Wijedasa by the President, why is the Speaker not making a statement.”

    My gurus tell me that Nando typifies a bipolar, paranoid schizophrenic, who is unable to exercise self-control, is capable of unbelievable brutality, and will strategically eliminate anyone who is seen as a threat.

    Such unfortunates usually have protruding backsides, and their lives are usually cut short on account of bad things that can happen to them. As a result, the epitaph on their graves reads, “Ars longa, vita brevis”.

    Humour aside, this is an important development, and although many wags will say that Mr “Deal Dasa” can be easily bought over by a ministerial portfolio, my gurus tell me that this time it’s different, and the tide has now turned.

    Two signs: Did anyone notice Mr Namal Baby (Ali Baba’s oldest), has visited the atrociously treated Ranjan Ramanayake, in prison? What gives? Is Mr 20% trying to secure his release by prevailing on his paranoid sibling to grant RR a pardon in order to gain few brownie points?

    And Mr Harin Fernando offering to resign his seat, in order to facilitate RR’s re-entry to the house where laws are “made”?

    History, Sure enough repeats itself without doubt. BBC hard talk, or whatever, phone threats have been the stylish and Choicest weapon of Coercion of the Nandasena epic, as Secretary Defiance under MR presidency (2010-2015) or the current position as the HE since 2019, though trimmed down and mild mannered since the presidential election in November 2019. He held up very well for 1¼ years. Until the frustration of being unable to deliver election promises, even with 2/3rd Majority, which he yearned and displayed his feeling towards it, as a likeness of a child, would have to his adored toy. Frustration indeed. However, a bad attribute to a Head of State or even a CEO of an organisation to display. Hickory has come tumbling down indeed. This has to be expected given past episodes, which were doused by the then President MR and C-i-C as of no consequence due to the filial connection and then paid the supreme sacrifice of being kicked out of office notwithstanding the longstanding politician that he was – his peak – of masterminding the “Mothers front” in 1988 against the RP government.

    Like all Sinhalese frauds, Gotabaya Rajapakse’s pathetic temper was nowhere to be seen until his brother Mahinda made his defence secretary.

    Before that as a middle level army officer, a computer operator, immigrant in America there was no temper. When Gota came back to Sri Lanka during the election campaign of MR in 2005, Lasantha Wickramatunga wrote some articles in the Sunday Leader suggesting that Gotabaya came to offer secret operations and muscle support for MR. It was an unfair and unsupported suggestion, Gota had no such capabilities then. But there was no temper.

    After he became defence secretary with thousands of bodyguards, hit squads under him, suddenly the temper appeared.

    This happens with all Sinhalese cowards, The children of politicians go to night clubs with the father’s bodyguards and lose their temper with other customers and beat them up and smash the night club.

He was seen in Disney Land California site seeing in an expensive stretch limousine provided by Avante Garde owner. He stopped and delayed all the Rajapakse court cases. Then he jumped ship and joined Gotabhaya campaign. Probably he now sees how unpopular the Gotabaya government has become, and worried about his re-election under Pohottuwa.
    If he was so honest and dedicated, why did he vote for the new constitution? Being a lawyer he knows the new constitution violates the basic principles of the separation and autonomy of the Executive, Legislature and Judiciary.

    In politics enemy’s enemy is my friends. But this is a dangerous maxim to follow for a failed country like Lankawe. To save the Sinhala Nation, Lankawe educated Buddhist Sinhalese should find a leader. This one should not be a one travels on the trade winds, i.e. when the wind comes they come and are gone with the wind when it fades. Pitching on Deal Dasa is an insult to human intelligence. Now, it is after the lesson of 75 years of Ayatollahs’’ guidance to failure, these shortsighted bald head Modayas should be left where Sir Johns Kotalawela left them. The Modaya in the red Sari was the leader who guided Buddhists Sinhalese to into this cesspit. He is now trying to put a brave face, but he is only a donkey taking on a lion thinking that deed is as his elevated ethics. By training he can’t feel him within the mass, but he there to salvage them. It is nothing but absolute lower end of Modayaism. The first step for seek resurrection is the educated Buddhist Sinhalese is sending these riots and disturbance creator back to their temples and they take over the leadership to mass.

  • 7

    Here the mass should be sensitively educated, but should not be brainwashed to rally behind a short sighted persist to make a Hitler to get rid a Hitler. That was the failed moto of the 2015 election and reviving the law and order with a well-known White Flag Murder, who latter bombed the Tamils churches using foreign funded Muslim terrorists. To guide and lead the mass, the educated Buddhists Sinhalese need a leader for themselves, with a trait of resolvement; a possessor of an excellent decision making talent with foreseeing the ability of future world; not dependent on opportunistic Weerakuddy bravery, but the courage stems out of the confidence & the sureness of the decisions they make. The leader has to prescribe to educated Buddhist Sinhalese and in turn they guide the mass with the refined message they received form their leader.

    Sincere, educated Buddhist needs to brainstorm how their 75 years, a three generations time got wasted, while Singapore turned out to be a miracle in one generation. They should not invite back home as their political, economics and scientific consultants the donated away unwanted, uneducated children who now only brainwashed with religious extremism in their foster centers,. Like the case of Lankawe, those bald heads clothed in red can be pitied for their lost life, but certainly there is nothing in them to be revered for knowledge or sanctity. This particular Modaya is coming back to Kannagi (the mass) after outed out of home by Mathavi’s mother, the prostitute woman in that story. He yet o publicly apologize to people “Dear fellow devotees, err is to human, we are not angels, We were guided by our greed for wealth and fame and thus we guided you to cesspits. Please excuse us because the truth is no different from you but he have geed to lead you”

    Buddhist Sinhalese should not repeatedly try to take a thorn out with another thorn and have collected numerous thorns in their muscle for enduring, never ending unlimited pain. This time they should get out of the house & should seek help at hospital to have all these thorns removed painlessly, with no future consequences.

If all this is true it is the language used reflects the tragic situation in the state machinery. I really thought instead of coming with expletives some unforeseen misfortune would have fallen on both of them. I know for certain that a bureaucrat during papa Premadasa’s time made a faux pax. Then big man told him in Sinhala “Can’t you see what is wrong? You are fit for the Zoo”. True to the commandment the errant official was transferred to the Zoological Gardens that very evening.

    I vehemently condemn the President threatening the Chief Sangha Nayaka of the Western Province and Chief Incumbent of Abhayaramaya, Venerable Muruththettuwe Ananda Nayaka Thero.
    How dare the President threaten and try to intimidate a Buddhist Nayaka Thero for standing by the country.
    The British did us many injustices, but even they didn’t threaten our Maha Sangha.
    Gotabhaya’s behaviour is uncivilized and abhorrent. He doesn’t even possess basic qualities to rule a country like Sri Lanka where Maha Sangha plays a prominent and a pivotal role in our society.
    The Rajapaksas think Maha Sangha and the Sinhalese Buddhists should stand by them, not by the country.
    As I have written here many times, inividuals don’t matter to us. What matters to us is our beloved motherland.
    Venerable Muruththettuwe Ananda Nayaka Thero accommodated the Rajapaksas in Abhayaramaya for years, addressed and participated in a large number of public rallies, took part in Colombo street protests under the baking hot sun and even engaged in Pindapatha to collect money for Rajapaksa lackeys.
    Today, the same Nayaka Thero is threatened by Gotabhaya.
    As seen everywhere around the country, Maha Sangha is leading and actively taking part in almost every protest against betrayals by the Rajapaksas.
    May be Gotabhaya hasn’t noticed yet, but Maha Sangha has already placed so many bells around the cat’s neck.

      Ananda hamuduruwo minted money by ripping off the nurses and putting patients in difficulty with sudden strikes. There was none of this when Catholic nuns ran the nursing service.

    As of Wijedasa Rajapaksa; as Buddhists we believe that death is inevitable, and therefore, we are prepared for it in many ways. That doesn’t mean that the President has a right to practice “Hitlerism” and threaten, intimidate or kill everyone who opposes him.
    President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, who has a questionable past, threatening a government MP for standing by the country is serious.
    Former Justice Minister and government MP Wijedasa Rajapaksa has done the right thing by making a criminal complaint. As per the Police Book, the IGP should take a statement from the President. Will he do that or will we see him floating on Diyawanna Oya?

      Now, I want to talk about the Port City Bill again.
      I don’t see any difference between the Chinese Port City Bill and the American MCC. They are both a threat to Sri Lanka’s sovereignty, independence, territorial integrity and our civilization based on Buddhism.
      Thanks to MP Wijedasa Rajapakshe, we have now come to know the reclaimed land from the sea allocated to the Port City is massive 445 hectares or 1,100 acres!!!!!
      How did it increase so much?
      In 2001, the proposed reclaimed sea area in Colombo was 145 hectares or 358 acres.
      In 2011, it was increased to 200 hectares or 494 acres.
      In 2013, it was increased to 233 hectares or 576 acres.
      In 2016, it was increased to 269 hectares or 665 acres.
      In 2021, it is now increased to 445 hectares or 1,100 acres!!!!!!
      How and when Gotabhaya made this increase without the knowledge of the public?
      As I said before, if the Port City Bill is approved, there won’t be any limit of losing our sea to China. It is obvious that China has bribed the Rajapaksas handsomely.
      Given the current geopolitical scenarios in the South Asian Region involving China, US, India and Japan, the ever extending Port City has all the possibility to make our nation subjected to extremely serious national security challenges.

      MP Wijedasa Rajapakshe says “Because we are becoming a colony of China, India is angry and is hitting at us. The US is attacking us. The EU is attacking us. Who is going to save this country today?
      China is hundred times better than India, the US and the EU. But, Port City is a serious no, no for number of reasons. In addition, attracting rivalry among global powers is very unwise.

    What did Wijedasa Rajapakse do when others complained against Gotapaya. He protected him. to reap favours from him. For Gotapaya to protect him when he defrauds the state. He had openly told he protected Gotapaya, from arrest on the Avant-Garde case. Fmr. Justice Min. Wijedasa Rajapakshe’s bombshell:
‘I blocked Gota’s arrest in Avant-Garde case’.
    http://www.dailynews.lk/2019/10/19/local/200337/%E2%80%98i-blocked-gota%E2%80%99s-arrest-avant-garde-case%E2%80%99
    So now this crook Dr. Wijedasa Rajapakshe is reaping what he sowed! He protected Gota when many went missing at Gota’s orders, He did not speak a word when Gota released a multi murderer from his life sentence. For all the crimes committed by the Gota clan, this Wijedasa did not utter a word. But now when he becomes Gota’s target and his life is in danger he shouts what Gota is. Everyone knew for a long time who Gota was when he was sleeping with Gota.
    Let me quote the famous ‘if you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas.’ This means that if you become involved with a bad company, there will be negative consequences. This Wijadasa got what he deserves. He should suffer the same for all those victims of Gota he protected.

    The famous poem of pastor Martin Niemöller:

    ” First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a socialist.

    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a trade unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”

    This aptly fits Wijedasa Rajapaksha. When Lasantha Wickrematunge’s life was in danger and he subsequently when he was murdered where was Wijedasa. When Lasantha’s daughter cried for justice Wijedasa was deaf and dumb. When Gota came out against the Tamils undercover of ‘liberation of Tamils against the LTTE’ during the war, and killed and maimed Tamil civilians at when he was secretary to the defense, this fellow Wijedasa Rajappaksha was deaf and dumb.

    Now his turn has come and let him face it without complaining as that is the justice he deserves.
