Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe Attempts To Reintroduce Executive Presidency

Paving the way for President Gotabaya Rajapaksa to fully enjoy executive powers, Parliamentarian Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe’s attempt to introduce amendments to the constitution allowing the President to hold defence and any other ministry has come under heavy criticism from all corners.

The former Justice Minister who presented the 19th amendment and ensured its passage through parliament back in 2015 is now strolling back on the same efforts to reintroduce executive powers through a private members bill.

Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe

During the debate stage of the 19th amendment back in 2015, Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe is heard pleading with the opposition not to disagree with certain clauses saying that “there is no political agenda here this is introduced for the benefit of all.”

Senior Counsel Viran Corea who took to twitter on the said issue states that this bill seeks to “reduce judicial independence, reduce independence of key public officers, concentrate direct executive powers in the president, reduce the need for parliament’s involvement in exercise of executive power and discourage national government”.

The amendments propose that the President be able to hold any ministry including defence and appoint officials to key positions such as the Chief Justice, justices of the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court, Attorney General, IGP, Ombudsmen and the Secretary-General of Parliament.

The bill proposes to do away with the Constitutional Council and allow the President to make judicial appointments with the ‘views of the’ Judicial Service Commission (JSC) and the views of the Prime Minister in making other appointments of public officials including members to the Judicial Service Commission.

It further proposes to “remove excess provisions in Article 41(C)3, prohibiting inter alia removal of any holder of those key public officers except as provided for in the Constitution or in any other law.

Currently, Removal of officers (Proc) act no 4 of 2002 gives security of tenure to the IGP and the Attorney General which only allows the removal of the said officials through a procedure in parliament.

Legal experts stating their opinion on the matter told Colombo telegraph that this is a complete reversing of the system from a parliamentary centric to an executive presidency.

“In the event, this bill is to become the law in essence it will completely do away with the main safeguards introduced by the 19th amendment,” a legal commentator told the Colombo telegraph.

JVP Parliamentarian Bimal Rathnayake tweeted saying “21st Amendment! Back to JR!”. He went on to state that this bill will “completely destroy the relatively independent systems established by the will of the people.”

“This dictatorship mania should be defeated irrespective of party lines,” Rathnayake claimed.

Although these efforts are clearly to back President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s wishes it is unclear as to why it was introduced as a private members bill.

“Million-dollar question is why did Wijayadasa R MP brought this 22nd amendment as a private member bill? According to the Standing Orders of the Parliament Private members bill will at least, take more than 6 – 8 months to be included in the order paper. Why SLPP cabinet didn’t bring this bill?,” Bimal Rathnayake posed a question on the uncertainties that have surfaced pertaining to the matter.

While questions remain as to how successful this attempt is, it is clear that this is something the government is checking as a viable option.

Late November last year following the Presidential Election, President Gotabaya Rajapaksa speaking with monks criticised both the 19th Amendment and the Constitutional Council. He lamented that these two have made it difficult for the government to conduct its business without any hindrance.

“It is difficult to appoint anyone that we deem fit due to the constitutional Council,” President Rajapaksa said at the Sunethra Bellanvila Temple last November.

Also, the fact that there has only been appointed a non-cabinet minister of defence has made the clear indication that the position has been reserved.

The two bills that have been gazetted as the 21st and 22nd amendments to the constitution has been gazetted and is scheduled to be introduced in Parliament session that is to commence from today (03).

    Turning Hats, let the Hats Guide, a Characteristic of the Para-Sinhala Para-“Buddhist” Ethics.

    Wije-dasa Raja-Paksa, has transformed to Gota-dasa, Gota-slave.

    He was not the only one. Siri-sena, also got transformed into Siri- dasa, aka Mahinda-dasa.

    What they all are Monk-dasa, slaves, to the monks.That is why they prostrate to these monks.

    The monks established themselves as Monk masters, by hi jacking Buddhism, and by calling themselves, the 3rd Gem, of the triple Gem, after the deaths of the Buddha and the original Bodhisattvas, to establish the monk hegemony. The imbecile followers, salves, went along with it.

    What do these dasas, slaves have in common? They are Sinhala “Buddhist”, salves to the imbecile monks, and they have what is called Sinhala -“Buddhist” ethics.

    What a great coup by the monks to take over Buddhism, the Dhamma, the philosophy.

    Call it Double Gem, and the imbeciles need to sideline the monk-Sangha, and reform Buddhism.

    Gotabaya should ask for Chinese help in that. They reformed the monks of Tibet, who had the monk dictatorship and monk-based slavery..

      There is a crisis mode developing in the World’s foremost Racists and one of the FIRST or the OLDEST ISLAMOPHOBES in the last 100 years, the GOVIGAMA RULING ELITE MAFIA Gangsters. At presently, the Rajapakse, Wickremasinghe and Sirisena BASTARDY working hard to somehow keep the SRI LANKAN system under their thumbs due to the expose’s of their CRIMES and the people are becoming knowledgeable in figuring out their complicity and the methods they used to achieve their DECEPTIVE geniuses. The Easter Sunday bombings have all the Hallmarks of the RAW/CIA/MOSSAD designs with the DIRECT participation of SIRISENA, RANIL & GOTA and his SL Armed forces bandits working tirelessly to stoke COMMUNAL violence, especially the ISLAMOPHOBIA campaigns that caused immense damaged to the MUSLIM community in the process of furthering the ZIONIST ISRAELI Agenda in the South Asia region. The Rajapakse Bastardy needs a 2/3rd majority and a Super Powerful Presidency to hide behind the political power and to do their bit in the likes of MODI-BJP style anti Muslim full fledged legal WAR through the state power gained from a FRAUDULENT election result. What Modi did recently will be done by his brother Gota. Plans are afoot and the map is ready.

        The GOVIGAMA MAFIA criminality cannot afford to let the system go out of their hands. If it goes, it will end up in the hands of the progressive part of the society. When that happens, all the criminalities of the entire GOVI MAFIA RULING EITE family’s history will be dug and will have to face the REAL JUSTICE which is bend and put on a COMA, will be revived to punish the criminal sluts for one and for all. 100 years of their domination, one could easily find how they deceptively destroy the once vibrant economy in the 50’s and brought it to the now gutter levels and the amazing thing is, not a SINGLE GOVI MAFIA SLUT has been found guilty to any of their massive frauds, thefts and mass murders committed on the TAX Paying citizenry throughout 72+ years span. For this, they have to bring in UNP, SLFP, SLPP as mainstream GOVI criminals controlled entities to keep on ruling the state. As when they see the people uniting as a single force, they use the centuries old divide and rule tactics by stoking Communalism. One could see how Ranil’s brother and his daughter helping the Rajapakse bastardy to bring about a Fascist GOVI system to implement Zionist’s Global Anti Muslim projects. Elections and its frauds are a way to confirm their criminalities the legality. Thus the UNP leadership confirmed the GOTA’s win as legitimate.

          Sri Lankan elections are the BIGGEST SCAM of the century as the entire system is flooded with the SINHALA racists working as professionals and govt., servants. All of them can be directed as the GOVI MAFIA wants to do any criminal act under the instructions and supervision of the GOVI MASTERS. Thus Mahinda and GOTA having full control of the SL State, by a wink of an eye all the criminals do what they are told. So, winning an election is a trick for them. The entire world saw how Sajith was pulling the crowds that clearly showed that he was the winner. But, all were tricked by the undercover players who brought the unwinnable GOTA as the President. Election Scam, they are masters in it.
          Modi is doing the same in India after flooding the Indian State institutions with the BRAHMIN sluts and most importantly the SUPREME COURT which is instrumental in delivering verdicts AGAINST THE PEOPLE and always in SUPPORTIVE OF THE BRAHMIN RULERS the BJP/RSS govt of NARENDRA MODI. All the judges are Brahmins. This is the thing that has given these criminals the boldness and fearlessness in committing MASSIVE CRIMES in the Global Levels. The UN which is run by the same ZIONIST criminals still did not find the way to punish RAJAPAKSE regime for its part in the crimes against humanity violations during the massacre in 2009 and the Riots conducted against the Muslims. Myanmar for its Genocide against Rohingya Muslims and Narendra Modi for his Gujarat riots and the destruction of Babri Mosque and other crimes committed against the Muslims. The reason is all of these three countries are secretly run by the CIA/MOSSAD/RAW alliance. The criminal rulers are “FRIENDS OF ISRAEL” and are allowed to kill whom they want. The continued harassment of Muslims by these criminals are a sign that they work on something very dangerous leading to a global conflict and they are a part in it.

            Mahinda Deshapriya ( The Election Commissioner ) a pro- Sinhala only agenda Rajapakse acolyte who made an interesting statement recently. He was appealing to the govt of Gota ( which is a scam) to quickly implement the introduction of ELECTRONIC VOTING MACHINES- EVMs like in the Indian voting system that helped Brahmin Racist criminal slut Narendra Modi to win elections by tampering, manipulations and frauds conducted through the BJP/ IT criminal teams that made them win 2/3 rd majority at a time just before the lok sabha elections BJP was losing in massive numbers in the local elections. Amith Shah promised that they will win by more than 300 seats and alas they won as they forecasted. It was shocking like what happened to Sajith. To see the tampering of EVMs became exposed. There is a case filed in the Supreme court of India which is controlled by Brahmin Judges (who are pro-BJP ) throughout a 50 years unbroken span, whom have taken up the case reluctantly as there is no way out but to accept the massive protest by NGO’s and Organizations that work on protecting the rights of the citizens of India. Mahinda Deshapriya was made to make this statement by the entire Govi leadership including Ranil and Sira (Gobba sewalaya) with the intention of making an election fraud to gain a 2/3rd majority to the Sinhala Racist Sluts and call it a legitimate Sinhala Bauddha voter victory and then bring in draconian laws to rule eternally by the Govi Mafia sluts. What a plan!!!!

              All the first world countries (US, EU and the rest of the White dominated countries including the criminal Israel) are still using printed paper voting system that can always be verified and recounted if there is any issues arising afterwards. It is constitutionally guaranteed that the system will not use EVMs for any elections as electronic systems can be manipulated and hacked by smart crooks working for criminal political elements such in the likes of BJP or if implemented in Sri Lanka, the GOVIGAMA ELITE MAFIA criminals. All the mainstream GOVI controlled political parties in Sri Lanka ( UNP/ SLFP/ SLPP) and the GOVI proxies JHU, MEP and other Sinhala Racist Dumb political parties who are leeches living off the GOVI masters excrements will definitely support the introduction of EVMs in the evil dream of establishing a 100% racist govt. The need for a SINHALA BUDDHIST RACIST entity is to commit horrendous crimes like how the Ashkenazi Jews were doing after robbing the Palestine. These criminals want a total freehand where a Fascist system functions and the ELITES will be controlling the system as they like as they are in the top of the PYRAMID as GOVIGAMA, BRAHMINS and the JEWS are belonging to the Super Race concept that looks everyone else as low classed or as the untouchables. But, on the economic aspect, they live off on others blood and sweat. Like the Sinhala Racists living off Muslim economies in the Middle East.

      As they planned, the Zionists establishment has killed Iranian General Qassam Soleimani. The hurriedly brought in Two Racist govts., in India and Sri Lanka namely Modi and his little prostituted brother GOTA, winning by fraudulent means with the help of main opposition parties in its respective countries is a CLEAR SIGN of the design targeting the IRAN and PAKISTAN in the Zio-Pig Hit List. The Muslim countries will have to keep a close watch on MODI and GOTA who are designed to open the EASTERN flank to the oncoming BIG WAR. Oh! many must be feeling relieved as the 100 years persecuting, bastardy of the GOVIGAMA RULING ELITES ( Rajapakses, Sirisenas, Wickremasinghes, Jayawardenes, Ratwattes, Senanayakes, Dissanayakes) are going to END VERY SOON. With the blockade of Petroleums and the hardly needed foreign revenue will put the SINHALA racists in a real life and death situation and the Sinhala people who are kind and wonderful will get their real Sinhala system afterwards. Let us all pray for the END OF GOVIGAMA MAFIA RULING ELITE criminals. Jolly Good moments of the human history.

      Gota, Sorisena and Ranil managed to allow the bombing of mostly Tamil Christians frequented Churches in a bid to destroy the clean image of the Muslims and then fix the entire Muslims guilty on Terrorism and launch a massive witch hunt persecuting all Muslims which will enable them to present their ISRAELI masters who are funding and protecting them (The Govigama Ruling Elite Mafia gangsters) to start up of the Zionist Agenda project of Anti Muslim campaign to show an engineered “International Islamic Terrorism” problem and by which they will go for a Military Pact with the US led Zionist criminal countries including the Modi Brahmin criminalities. Its really happening now. Modi is moving all the dices in his stinky Saffron undies in an accelerated mode targeting the 2020 timing. Same way, Gota and the Sinhala Therawada Racist establishment are moving. 2020 is a big sign that they had to move the chips made ready for dismembering Pakistan and Iran. Today, in the opening of the new year, The Zionist Jew Trump has bombed and killed Iranian General Qassam Soleimani in Iraq. So, as we have exposed, Gota’s win and his anti Muslim govt., formation as gifted to them by the equally Racist UNP leadership on a platter in the Election fraud win, are all signs leading to the US Citizen Gota’s entry in the Big War on Islamic/Muslim countries. How Gota will survive the repercussion of betraying the friendly Muslim countries whose help is needed for the racists survival, will be known once the War is resumed. A Muslim cannot fund an enemies like Gota or Modi to kill and destroy a fellow Muslim. Its deadly Haraam. Lets enjoy the show!!!

        The reasons for this totally confusing target is the Islamic End time prophesy that says in the last hours before the “ Malhama” (Arabic)…meaning The Armageddon. The big religious war that will be waged by the Ashkenazi Jews who are converts from Khazarian Empire in the history, and who are controlling the World from 1900’s by deceptively inciting the non Jews fighting one another until they they reach what they are now in controlling Trade, Banking, Finance, Religions, governments, militaries etc. The prophesy is that the Christians and the Muslims will join hands after they discover the conspiracy of the Zionist criminals and and they will become allies fighting the Zionists and their system. Thus, the Zionists pre-empted by launching their Satanic follower crackpot in the false flag attack of the New Zealand mosques and it was lively streamed on Zionist controlled social media. This is done as mark of their disapproval of such prophesied alliance. So, that was “Christian” attacking the Muslims. Now, they needed another false flag happening from the Muslim side to the Christians. For this they contracted the Modi/Sirisena/Ranil/Gota alliance. And it happened in Sri Lanka – The Easter Sunday attack.

          If one can remember, Modi the racist Brahmin slut whose band of thieves and Aryan myth proponents, like the Sinhala Arya Therawada criminals who follows Nazi Aryan Ideology openly, came to Sri Lanka on short notice and for very short period on his way from Maldives, to meet his criminal partners ( Sorisena, Ranil & Mahinda) to discuss about the next level of the plan on the War on Islam and both of the teams getting ready to win the oncoming elections to secure their FASCISTIC rule through which they will be implementing in a legal way by drafting draconian laws with the intention of persecuting the Muslims in general. This way they can keep the interesting morale boosting to their proxies until the big War is declared by their ISRAELI/ US masters in the destruction of PAKISTAN & IRAN. This is what is happening right at this moment. The Kashmir takeover to which Ranil and the Gota/ Sirisena congratulating MODI and then MODI bringing in a bulk of other laws to destroy the local Indian Muslims are all signs that are in progress. MODI also must have warned Sira/Ranil/ Mahinda GOVI criminal team not to let any chance to leak the RAW involvement in the Easter Sunday Attack as they planned it.

        Soon after the Easter Sunday attack, Mahinda Rajapakse went to the spot and declared that the country is not safe and it requires Rajapakse rule. Sirisena and Ranil jointly played the dumb part by knowingly unknown about the impending attack. Sirisena is the biggest criminal who held the defense ministry under him and who was responsible for the debacle after the knowledgeable of such a plan and did not do to stop it. How can he stop when he and his Govi team are part of the very plan. Easter attack was sighted by their pro-media and analysts as the main incident that helped MODI to win massively and Gota’s win in the Presidency. The fake propaganda was launched to givr legitimacy for both win (Modi’s and Gota’s). The UNP which is playing the double game to favour the Govi Criminals, confirmed this by repeatedly parroting Easter Sunday bombing and the Sinhala Buddhist vote bank which is another crap they use as a deception. All of these criminals wanted power before 2020 target to get ready for the US/Israeli game in the War on Islam.

            Justice and Fair Play,

            Truth is a process. Journalism should allow alternative opinions, observations and facts to be presented, so that they accepted and rejected based on their own merit.

            Radical ideas is expressing ideas based on some observations, that are fact based, and the questions are the causes.

            The editorial functions are NOT neglected. Isn’t that true that an Iranian general was killed? What about the other observations?

      Nor really. This guy was the Rajapaksa bag man in the Appaya-Ranil govt. Most of the goons, murders and racist skin heads are out because of him.
      Considering the above and the incompetence of Appaya and Ranil to identify and get rid of him is enough reason to send both of them into forced retirement from politics.

      How ethical these men to be called SENIOR lawyers ?

      In Germany, where I live, I have never heard a Lawyer that would not respect the basics of that profession. Those who study LAW are highly interested in serving justice to the poor or ones that are really in need.
      Both Dealdasa and Mahinda Rajapakshe campaigned elections, repeatedly promising about the abolish of EXECUTIVE presidency.
      Now Wijedasa AKA Dealdasa being bit annoyed with UNP leadership, to behave this way is beyond all ethics and morals. People as voters in this country should SEND these kind of politicians home. And never allow the kind of men to RESPRENT us in parliament or anywhere. If all these would not work, at least natural disasters or Karma should work on them.
      These men are the WOUNDs of srilanken politics.

          Alone think of Deal man of the nation Mahinda Rajakashe. He today, shamelessly abuse state helicopters as if we the nation are born to let them abuse. In truth, all these monies belong to tax payers funds right ? Even beggars on the streets pay the taxes as vat since they continue to live in SL. I myself dont pay it since i dont live there.
          I think PEOPE down there must be well informed about VAT and the taxes that the GOVT earn as state income and that is the only mean they get paid whatever they spend as POLITICIANS.

        Mr Native V,
        exactly the truth. At the time, BITCH s son, Batticaloa saffron clad thug Ampitiye Sumanarathana demolished the NAME BOARD containg the name of ” stupid SIRISENA as the incumbent Prez”, this aggressive man hammered down it to floor. How brutal the man should be, to that time, DEALDASA was the minister of JUSTICE, though further being like the asskissers of Rajaakshe family. This man Dealdasa never allowed Rajapakshe be caught by the law, for one single reason, he himself was part high crimes perpetrated by Avangarde and other underground thug network in the country.
        And also remember that this DEAL dasa was once targeted by Murderousu Mahinda Rajapakshe and was reported his house and property had been approached to the very same manner, Walgamas was hurt shortly before the last election. Remember ?

        Native Vedda,

        The monk hegemony of the “Monk Mafia” was established after Buddha, calling the Mafia, “Sangha”, hi-hacking, Buddhism and Philosophy, and calling themselves the 3rd Gem of Buddhism, requiring the followers to prostrate to the monks. When the Monk Mafia, established themselves in the Land after the first 6 Para Kings, all the Paras who became “Buddhists “ had to prostrate to the Mafia, called monks, Hamuduruvo, Siviru, the saffron clad clothes.

        Now this monk, Wije-Dasa and Mahinda, are all part of the Mafia. Some wear saffron clothes, and some don’t,.

        They all ask for the Blessings of the Triple Gem? The 3rd Gem is the Mafia-Sangha, who hijacked Buddhism, calling themselves, “Community “, the Mafia Community.

        All the laymen and politicians are expected to prostrate or adhere to their obstructions. If not, they will be killed, like what Mafia member, Somarama, did to SWRD, while in the process of prostrating.

        Somarama, did not want to go to Hell, Abaya. So, he becomes Catholic, and to save himself from eternal Hell- Fire, accepts Jesus as the Savior (a belief), and is hanged for his crime.

        Now when will Wije-dasa and Mahinda, along with them monk, seek pardon and try to get help from being thrown into Hell-Fire for eternity.

        Now remember, one of the reasons the monk, slapped the priest was that he asked him what happens to you after you die, and that stuck a nerve on the monk.

        This question should be asked from every saffron clad mafia member and followers who prostrate to these monks.

      Bro Amarasiri,
      In my childhood, I was used to hear this saying ” sithudee nosithe, nosithu dheyama we”: We the srilankens in my home country has been facing it today. Who on earth with even a bird brain ever would give a chance VANDALISTs to take over, but it happened with the direct mediation of the easy targets and MEDIA mafia.

      I have not lived in the country and nor would I come back to LIVE there, but I have been very much concerned with our home country and did sofar all what I can within my capacities. At the time, Tsunami took the lives of costal areas, there we send thousands of dollars collected by my friends in the US (Americans) and Europeans (Germany and Switzerland). But what revealed to me later was, not much of those funds were used for the destitute and victims who re really in need. Instead, Rajapakshes embezzeled the huge sums, above all with the COURTESY of gullible majority. Who made them that gullible and easy targets, nobody else, lanken BUDDHIST CLERGY and MEDIA MAFIA TV channels such as Dilip Jayaweeras Derana TV and Kudu Duminda s Hiru TV and some extent by SIRASA bastards run by Killi.
      All in all today, I question, how the locals would be fed with DAY today information, by the mentioned channels ? All these channels bring their hearsays as HEAD LINE NEWS items, with no control by proper authorities. This would not have been the case in Germany or UK; since the media institutions are tied with rigourous LAWs and regulations, if they would behave that irresponsible as our COUNTER PARTS.

      However, all this continued well during the last 5 years, even better than any times before in lanken history since GOOD GOVERANCE let them criticised thinking that the people s mind set is similar to that of the developed nations.

      To be continued.

        Sam Fernando,

        You are describing the Symptoms of the Mafia, the Triple Mafia, who took over.”, the “Triple Gem”.

        The Monks, The Rajapaksas, the media and the imbecile followers.

        The imbecile followers have no clue. All they do is prostrate to the saffron clad monks, but Buddha said think. Unfortunately, the imbeciles, can’t think. Just read the post to Native Vedda.

      Palace intrigues by killing the king and usurping the throne had been a common practice among Sinhalese. Will history repeat itself presently within the ruling family by Mahinda displacing Gotabhaya and taking over power.

    ” Million dollar question is why did WigedasaR MP, brought this amendment as a private member bill”? It is for the simple reason to curry favour with the president and safeguard his alleged earnings from Avangard? He brought it as a private member bill as he could not find enough support from the parliamentarians and further he would have been ‘one among the many’, and would not be able to catch the Eye of those who may matter.

    Dear CT editors,
    Please do not exaggerate things that are not even news.
    Look at your first para:
    “Paving the way for President Gotabaya Rajapaksa to fully ENJOY executive powers, Parliamentarian Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe’s attempt to introduce amendments to the constitution allowing the President to hold defence and any other ministry has come under HEAVY CRITICISM from all CORNERS.” (Capitalized for emphasis only by me).
    We all know that the current constitution, specially the 19th amendment is a mess. It should be re-written and there is no argument on that.
    We need a powerful executive presidency specially with regard to national security; it is a must for all ethnic groups (since your website is more concerned about the minorities you should think about it). People don’t give power for the president to ‘ENJOY’ in its usual sense; but to use it for the benefit of the people. There is no ‘HEAVY CRITICISM’ from any ‘CORNER’ but in your imagined world where minorities and their rights are the only rights to be preserved, yes, they are concerned.
    You, and many of your writers never think about the country as a whole; you pretend that the Sinhalese as the majority doesn’t and/or shouldn’t exist! And you think that all Sinhalese are racists, a lie that you have imbibed from diaspora Tamils! If a content analysis is done, you will see how much you are against the Sinhalese. it is a shame! That’s your right but as a website you should be somewhat impartial, because your slogan is that the truth is a ‘PROCESS’. However, we see your website obstructs and/or destroys that process purposely with lies and half lies.

      Oh, please give us a break, Raj.
      Between Mahinda and Gotabhaya, Sinhalese prefer Mahinda to have more power over Gotabhaya for obvious reasons.
      There have been many U-turns already. The biggest betrayal is a Podiyan telling the masses that GR or MR have never promised that they would not sign the MCC, which is an utter lie. It was the understanding of the entire country that MR camp will never sign the MCC. People placed their trust in them.
      Among other things, people voted against UNP mainly to stop the proposed land sale in the US Economic Corridor which would swallow our ancient kingdoms and national heritage. There is no need to give special promises to not to sign the MCC. The protest against the MCC in the country was so strong, even Sajith promised to not to sign MCC.
      The U-turn President is betraying the country in style even putting Ranil to shame.
      The Prime Minister should stay away from it.
      The next biggest betrayal is against Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa.
      Some Buddhist priests who hailed Hitler and Yama Raju are now encouraging Sajith to support Gotabhaya (at the expense of Mahinda.) I have no words to describe this despicable proposal. How dare they cheat people like this? The long time deal between Gotabhaya and Sajith is now in the open with the blessings of some U-turn Buddhist priests.
      I would tell the Prime Minister to “watch out.” I happened to see some videos which give an ultimate warning to the PM to retire from politics or face the “consequences”, which is “death,” under the guise of some planetary u-turns. Sorry to be blunt, but you should pay attention to this. I am waiting for an opportunity to write about it in Sinhala. The helicopter crash could be a natural signal, if you know what I mean.

        Champa: Are you writing for Mahinda Rajapakse ?. Mahinda Rajapakse thinks that way. But, even Basil could not win North for him. Nandasena won the presidency in his own terms. People do not have any hate towards Rsajapakses as they hate Ranil and butter flies and His UnPATRIOTIC govt. But President NandaSena is different from Mahinda rajapakse. But, they are close relatives. There are more to this. Why Mangala criticized Maha Sanga and he was really angry with Sanga ? Do not be stupid. You take so many turns because of money.

          Of course, I have been writing for Mahinda Rajapaksa for 5 years
          I started writing in this forum since 2015 February under one name. I never changed my name.
          It is you who changed names and took many turns.
          A thief thinks others also steal. You write for money, so you think I also do the same which is wrong.
          Since 2015 I was an ardent supporter of Mahinda. There is no change in my stance. I have criticized Mahinda many times, but I never left him. I stick like glue to him while at the same time maintaining my independence and reserving my right to express my own opinion.
          For your selective memory, I did not support Gotabhaya, but supported Mahinda to defeat the slave government.
          I criticized Maha Sangha hailing Gotabhaya as a Hitler then and I criticize the same Maha Sangha now for proposing the defeated UNP to join hands with Gotabhaya which is a serious betrayal to 6.9 voters who supported Gotabhaya as Mahinda’s choice to defeat the slave government. Now the same man wants to join hands with the defeated at the expense of the people who elected him.
          Gotabhaya did not win in his own terms. If so, why did he use Mahinda and JO to come to politics? Using someone and discarding him when one’s aspirations are fulfilled is not something in our vocabulary. Only cheap opportunists will do that. However, I warned Mahinda of this predicament long time ago. The scenario unfolding now only confirms my opinion.

            Can you heartedly utter a single word in favour of MR born killers if you are honest to you `?

            Not even my doemestic pet – labrador dog would not wag her tail, knowing that the mlechcha Rajaakshe rule destroyed this nation to all the ends.

            That is the nature of an underdeveloped society where more are into hearsays than any truths.

            I yet today dont trust NEWS telecasts being transmitted by LOCAL TV channels since I know very well they are more behind their own selfish gains. But I wonder if this was the case in UK or GERMANY, they would stand against the media institutions, and punish them accordingly while our counterpart bodies seems to have done nothing sofar.

            Spreading a lie and misleading the nation that easily was proved by Prof. Pundhitha thero, incumbent CHIEF monk at Kelaniya Temple shortly before PE election was held (15th Nove 2019)

            And there are lot more alike exaamples how EASY it is to mislead lankens that are behind BUDDHAGAMA instead of true buddhism

            A)Hakkgediya promoter FAKE Prof. Keerthi Disanayaka looted lacks of Rupees from POlitiicans and all levels of people by having introduced MYTHs about HAKGEDIYA, and got caught lately and now under bars.

            B)One another abusive KATTADIYA from Yalthanna Dewale was placed above rule of law and, thousands if not lacks of people got misled

            C)Now there is an another SO CALLED WONDER HEALER – former SOLDIER is popular for wonder healing tactics – what he is said to be using is only an ointment which is prepared at their place by themselves. He touches anypatients visiting the place and heal the blindness and anything…. in that line… as if the man is given god powers…. howeve rthere are enough speculations about the man and his behavours….

              Misleading laymen was always there, even during Lord Buddha’s time.
              People understand the truth sometimes belatedly.
              The videos I was talking about also one such thing. The astrologer is not familiar to me, but the host I have seen a couple of times during the election period with predictions..
              I saw the video accidentally as the title grabbed my attention when I was looking for something else. It was a direct message. Even I was surprised. So many people have watched it. It was without mistake a warning. I saw another similar one. As the election is over now, there is no reason for such predictions. The motive is obvious to viewers.

                What people are u refering here ? I dont think ouru sinhalaya would understand the truths or respect truths even if decades are gone. See war related issues, made apart, but they just dontcare today.

                At least sometimes you sense it right. Are u perhaps suffering from Nerve problems ?

                In Europe, nowadays there are people that spread “coconut fat to be poisonous” just because one researcher from Harward to have brought a publication, on that but not having focused on varied populations. Some researchers today are mad and divided too so long they are funded by their pay masters.

                Glyphosat issue is also the same. World is divided on that. That “Athana methana natana rathana” is made silent today, even if he was highly vocal on that sayin gthat we the srilankens are the only nation to have banned Glyphosat.

                But I think, issue in SL with buddhists (locals) is deliberate work. They know so long people stay fools, the vicious politicains can reap the harvest. And they did it.

                Not much is achieved today, but surface is being enjoyed. Nomatter even sky high prices hikes are the consequence. I heard the kg of beans and others veg are nowadays exceeding our prices in Europe.

      Raj,
      whoever you are, you seem to respect nothing but Rajapakshes. May be you too an another who dream of your personal gains.
      But as a whole, we let the racial and abusive family enough time and wealth, alone my funds collected for Tsunami victims that are really in need were embezzeled by them. They are so shameless buggers that know nothing but to hurt the wounds and enjoy the the day. I have no the least respect to them as human beings.
      Just imagine, if they came to power promising that EP to be abolished and make U turn today callign that we need to place the NATIONAL SECURITY above anything else. :::: is just an another lie to cover their real motives.
      Besides, who are they ? Not a single man in that bunch bring expertise to see beyond and bring this to a real track.

      I live in Europ efor such along time and I got my education here and stayed back. There are also some srilankens that migrated to europe in the high days of CIVIL war. But any srilankens living in the west could bring lot more better systems to home country since they have enjoyed better systems under law and order. Be it from UK, Germany, France or any other country in developed world, they all have much common, that is they have placed the law and order above anything else.
      So, even an any former refugee now turned out to be a CITIZEN of EU could introduce lot more good each of them experienced in the life.
      Likewise, Gota having lived in the US, though as a PETROL SHED assistant, could bring lot more good. But is he good enough to lead the country is not clear to me yet.
      If he cant lead the country, why not Juliampitiya AMRAYA OR the like serial killer further being kept in LOCAL prisons, they could also join the bunch in destroying the country… or not ? That is my point ?

    As the Constitution stands at present the Premier and Cabinet has more powers than the President. That is Mahinda Rajapaksha over Gotabaya Rajapaksha. It is based on the 19th amendment to the Constitution. I wonder whether Mahinda will be happy with the 20th Amendment if his powers are to be curtailed and his younger brother is going to wield more powers than him!
    Let’s see how this unfolds in the future.
    Sri Lanka is full of conspiracies and conflicts between brothers over power sharing. Will history repeat itself?

      It has been the practice in Srilanka to amend the constitution whenever a new government comes into power. One wonders whether it is necessary to have a constitution at all. Why not do away with the constitution and let the parliament decide from time to time as to what should be done/not done. This would prevent the constitution from .being published as a periodical.

    Back after a while and of course read some interesting notes of all kind. However one thing is crystal clear in the current circumstances that in no time the forces that brought the family rule back will turn against the family rule. The distance is not very far at all.

    In order to achieve they must first take RW into custody on his culpability in the bond scam and pave way for progressive elements to centre stage. One note to end is that Wijepala Pajapaksa is a shame and is a man who has no moral and ethical conduct in any sphere other than to make some money. I wonder how much has come from the custodians of the family rule to his account do this by way of a private member bill. Rajapaksas know how to play the game this time around as they leant the lesson last time around.

      It is really painful to see and I thought I was in a film, while they telecasted the rascals and facists being rulers of the country again.

      How stupid the people should have been ?

      I do believe not only politicians but also the PEOPLE are to be blamed for their gullible and indifferent mind setting

      I believe, the buddhagama (not real buddhism) based on JATHAKA STORIES should have made them that stupid…. how would one repeatedly get misled if not SRILANKENS ?
      There are vernacular saying ” you dont need to open the bag which once had been WELL proved”. Lihala balapu malla obala balanna ona naehane ?But people GET caught by any easy tricks being PLAYED by media channels handled by RAJAPAKSHE MAFIA.

      If people would have been ASKED to test DOG #S SHIT, people down there would do it without questioning twice.

      The kind of MENTALITY of the masses betrayed the nation again.

      Today not a single word about HOW they looted the state ?
      How they killed innocient Journos ?
      How unethical the man as PRESIDENT elected, was to that time ?

      Mr Perera I dont think I should add any more comment spending my precious times on this PEOPLE. I hate my RACE today for one single reason, them to have been caught by RASCALS again.

    This is not a bad way to go, necessarily. It is good for economic development. A Chinese professor once told me that while it takes 6 months to build a bridge in China, the same bridge might take 6 years to build in the United States, due to the difference in political styles. Government is not an inefficient organization, there is this thing called “bureaucracy.” In the West, everything is debated, there are too many rules, and it takes a long time to see results. That is why China experienced exponential economic growth while certain Western entities like UK were practicising austerity. Also, with EP, Gothabaya has more control over corruption.

    I hope and pray that President GR puts Wijedasa Rajapakse in his place. It is this type of pakkali politicians that have induced promising leaders in the past to self-destruct themselves. For the sake of Sri Lanka’s future, I hope that GR will not fall into the trap that many leaders before him fell into. He cannot ignore the fact that there is a bunch of politicians in Sri Lanka who remain ministers irrespective of the party in power. Even a child would know that many of these turncoats are corrupt, and desert leaders in order to maintain their position and power.

    Ranil / Jayampath mechanations to create an Exetuvive Primeminister coupled with their Federal project gave rise to a pro EP consensus within the majority. Nincompoop may be but Sirisena helped prevent this. This too firmed up the pro EP stance. And then the Easter bomb!
    .
    During the presidential election campaign UNP too was silent on abolition of EP which was the main promise of all major parties in all previous elections and the main subject of discussion during Yahapalana era. That was not to appear contradictory with their campaign slogan ” Sajith samaga aluth gamanac (a new journey with Sajith). ” and to satisfy Sajith Premadasa’s greed.

      Very well, being a self proclaimed strongman Gota is expected to go beyond JR, though JR enjoyed the idea of being the head of all powerful state he never had the freedom nor the wearwithal to actually exercise total power.


      However in Gota’s case the dynasty could go on and on and on if he transformed the unitary state into a fine fascist dictatorship with the 62% support from the country. Because he has the support of the 62% of the people he doesn’t need to call for the parliamentary elections or any other elections for another considerable length of time, until Gota is physically kicked out of the office.

    perhaps people see it as if they are upside down. They dont take anything serious today. Even if their mothers would have been hurt on broad day light, they dont care it much. Even if their lovely ones would have been abducted and gunned down, they dont take it serious. Best examples are rugerite thadjudeen sportler and his murder. How many in island nation took it serious and criticised the brutal act ?Not many… that is the truth. Even if the body parts of the dead were stolen and frozen in separate labs for their intentional acts, no powerful uprising collectively came up from people of this country. Peityless, they the politicians killed own citizens and harmed them as no other leaders would ever do. People did not take anything serious and listened to fake and biased news broadcasted and telecasted by their biased media mafia men.media mafia maintained the perception of the society in favour of the murderers and the victimized were further hurt in that way. This today’s srilanken under so called politicians and buddhist clergy that work with the sinister political will.
    The educated who are the opposition question today, as to why people support the criminals even if any developed society woudl at once chose the other way around, because humans tend to respect the respectful and the dignified rather than the criminals.
    Why the nature is twisted upside down today in our island ?

    I am a srilanken born citizen but currently living in Europe. following my education, I stayed back in Europe for my professional life. I travel a lot europe wide weekly for my duties. So I ve got a balanced knowledge and view about better systems in general. I would like to share my thoughts and experience with our country men this way. That is why I feel we the srilankens should change our systems if we are to rise up becoming a developed country.First our thinking should be subjected to a paradigam shift. Sociologist and psychologists and university experts should work on this endevour collectively for the initial period. Number one thing I expect authorities to take action is in the line of prevailing FAKE media institions, that constantly abuse the telecasting frequencies of the people for their selfish gains. We the public should stand against them if not today when. They spread fake news items as head line capturing news items from dawn to dusk. i WONDER why media instiutions that constantly misled our poor people, always escape from the law and order systems prevailing in the country. where is the law against them ? we the srilankens, do we at all have law and order to protect our nation. We talk high about national security and people’s security while further allowing abusive media institutions to do their usual job, which is telecasting of fake news as they are upto. If not PEOPLE’s representives who would have to stand against these perpetrators that fuel the fire in this country. They deliberately create new divisions and conflicts among communities. It is common that various groups and thought bearers are part of a society. Rabblerousers and extremists should not rather be promoted in this country which had fought a civil war for 3 long decades. THERE should be new laws, that should stand against racism, extremism, xenophobia and all other anti human practices be them pracised by religious leaders or lay people.
