WikiLeaks: “Rajapaksas Are Uneducated And Uncultured Rascals” – CBK

“President Kumaratunga found the Rajapaksa family involvement in politics very distasteful and called them ‘uneducated and uncultured rascals.’ She worried that the political climate since her term had become “vindictive and threatening” and that Rajapaksa had ‘muddied the thinking’ of masses.” the US Ambassador to Colombo informed Washington.

The Colombo Telegraph found the leaked cable from the WikiLeaks database. The cable is classified as “CONFIDENTIAL” and recounts details of a meeting ambassador Patricia A. Butenis has had with former President Chandrika Kumaratunga on 14th December 2009.

The cable said “Former President discussed President Rajapaksa’s abuse of power and said that under his leadership, the economy, the political climate, health care, education and international relations had spiraled down reaching a new low in the country’s history. Kumaratunga remarked that governance had broken down and corruption was appallingly bad. She noted that while she was responsible for nominating President Rajapaksa for the Sri Lanka Freedom Party, he had a detrimental impact on the party.”

In response to Ambassador’s query on elections and General Fonseka’s candidacy, Kumaratunga said, while she was surprised by Fonseka’s entry in to politics, if ‘free and fair’ elections were held today, Fonseka would win. “While Fonseka came from a Buddhist extremist background, he seemed more honest than Rajapaksa and might not go back on his promises.” Butenis wrote.

“Kumaratunga acknowledged the mood and the thinking in the country was changing. People were hopeful of changing and were interested in moving ahead. Although Kumaratunga was no longer directly involved in politics, she remarked that President Rajapkasa feared her influence and had restricted her movements.” the ambassador further wrote to Washington.

E.O. 12958: DECL: 10/08/2019
TAGS: PGOV PREL PREF PHUM PTER EAID MOPS CE
SUBJECT: FORMER PRESIDENT NOTES DESTRUCTIVE INFLUENCE OF
RAJAPAKSA

Classified By: AMBASSADOR PATRICIA A. BUTENIS.  REASONS: 1.4 (B, D)

1. (C) In a December 14 meeting with Ambassador, former
President Chandrika Kumaratunga discussed President
Rajapaksa's abuse of power and said that under his
leadership, the economy, the political climate, health care,
education and international relations had spiraled down
reaching a new low in the country's history.  Kumaratunga
remarked that governance had broken down and corruption was
appallingly bad.  She noted that while she was responsible
for nominating President Rajapaksa for the Sri Lanka Freedom
Party (SLFP), he had a detrimental impact on the party.
President Kumaratunga found the Rajapaksa family involvement
in politics very distasteful and called them "uneducated and
uncultured rascals."  She worried that the political climate
since her term had become "vindictive and threatening" and
that Rajapaksa had "muddied the thinking" of the masses.

2. (C) In response to Ambassador's query on elections and
General Fonseka's candidacy, President Kumaratunga said,
while she was surprised by Fonseka's entry into politics, if
"free and fair" elections were held today, Fonseka would win.
 In the same breath, however, she noted that Fonseka's
negatives were insurmountable for many voters especially the
Tamils and, thus, the Tamil vote was still in question.  In
Kumaratunga's opinion, Fonseka was the only man who could
counter the President's "war victory" strategy.  She reminded
the Ambassador that it was her administration that cleared 70
percent of the Northern Province and that Rajapaksa was only
responsible for clearing 30 percent of the LTTE-held grounds.
 Conversely, the Rajapakasas were falsely taking sole credit
for winning the war.  In her opinion, Fonseka would need the
Tamil votes to win, and while the United National Party (UNP)
leader Ranil Wickremesinghe could command the Tamil vote,
this was not a guarantee with Fonseka.  While Fonseka came
from a Buddhist extremist background, he seemed more honest
than Rajapaksa and might not go back on his promises. She
noted that the State-owned media, Rajapaksa's propaganda
machine, had been very effective and had brain-washed the
masses.  Kumaratunga observed that the rural people referred
to Rajapaksa as "King" and pointed to the President's 12 foot
billboard cut-outs as distasteful examples of abuse of power.

3. (C) Ambassador raised the issue of international
expectations about accountability and reconciliation in
reference to the release of the Department's war crimes
report.  Kumaratunga said that there was a fear psychosis in
the country and that President Rajapaksa had instilled a fear
in the people, so no one was willing to talk. She disagreed
on Rajapaksa's stance with the West and said that foreign
criticisms, international pressure and monitoring had kept
the human rights violations from getting worse.  On the issue
of Tamils, Kumaratunga noted that the vast majority of Tamils
were not terrorists and did not want a separate State, but
rather fundamental rights. According to Kumaratunga there
were 800,000 Tamils overseas and the diaspora was now ready
for change.  In the last few months, Kumaratunga acknowledged
the mood and the thinking in the country was changing.
People were hopeful of change and were interested in moving
ahead.  Although Kumaratunga was no longer directly involved
in politics, she remarked that President Rajapaksa feared her
influence and had restricted her movements.

      As Malinda (see below) said in his comment CBK is a pitch black pot and I don’t think she has any moral justification call any other person/s in this manner. She is just an envious person. If you want to get more details about CBK’s dirty work please read the book named “The Queen of Deceit” (Chaurya Rajina) by Victor Ivan

        I don’t think we should believe all what is written by Victor Ivan as true. It does not mean that CBK is out of all sins.

        But what we need to understand is that as civilians of this country, we had much more democracy, freedon of speech ability for people to protest where applicable which are very critical. But today we have lost all these and become mere slaves of regime. For that matter we had much more freedom under Mr. Premadasa where even Mr. Victor Ivan could publish Ravaya every week even under treats. How about today if somebody starts ?

      As CBk said they are upstarts and ‘rascals’ commonly know as ‘Sarong Jonies’ and not high class people like the ancestors of CBK and Ranil. Stupid Sinahal Buddhist villagers keep electing them. Must admit CBK was much more corrupt than these people, she even sold Air Lanka for commission and collected a good pool for her and her family. Ranil of course is a Top quality man, our class of man very pro west and pukka guy but sadley no back bone and people dont elect him.

        some may feel that sinhala buddhist are stupid……yes they are stupid by letting those “kalu suddos”(the pupies of white men) to living in this country with so much hate.

        every body is feared specially who loves to the “westen christian culture” (including ranil) because now no value to that. the thinking pattern of the leadership has gone to “core” values of early “buddlist country” which destroied by the blood sucking westerners . also the political power of the country has gone to the “south”, now it is not in colombo any more. the “kalu suddo” not like this. that’s why they are crying saying that there are no freedom and every thing. where those guys when bloody prabakaran killing the inosent people in the street!!!

        these can call as “modern” jokes. the real men and wowen, means who actually loves to this cauntry and who has “roots” to the country (the “kalu suddo” haven’t roots they are just pupies of westeners) are feeling the freedom in every village.

      The worse Rascal we ever had as the “Head of the Government of Sri Lanka” was Chandrika…..as someone said the book ‘Queen of thieves ‘ written by Victor Ivan and the facts contained are to a larger extent very true, Victor Ivan hasn’t given all wrongs what she has done , the book contain only about 10 %….can anyone say anything good done by her during the two terms she was in power for more than 11 years…she was a total failure and a liability…all dirty work done started by her Govt ., she should not call President Rajapakse ‘uneducated’, what is the qualification she has, only GCE (Ordinary level)….I remember once she said over the TV that her mother cried on a visit to UK seeing her living in a 2 bed room flat just after Vijaya’s death when she lived in UK for over 3 years……WHAT IS HER WEALTH TODAY???????? She is a billionaire now…How did she earn all this money……who gave all those mansions in UK and near river Nile……well she will have to answer lot of questions put by the readers and public everyday before she call others Rascals…

      I see some of the contributors to this forum angry with Mahinda Rajapakse…..they have forgotten in a very short time, like ‘all of us’ Sinhalayas, the terrible time we had for almost 30 years, we were crying & praying for some strong Sinhala leader who could give a strong challenge to this mass murderer ‘Piribakaran’, there was none and we sinhalayas , muslim and Tamils were helpless……. for some luck this Rajapakse was elected, like all others including me and you all, Mahinda Rajapakse too has weaknesses, but see the contribution he has made, if not for this’ strong man’ from the south, our country would have been divided into 2 or 3 pieces and we would had to get a passport to cross Anuradhapura and to the east, I live in US, and remember the dangerous times we had in Colombo and south with bombs on streets very day, children , parents living in fear, and bodies of soldiers being brought every hour from the north, hundreds of our brave soldiers killed in thousands. Ranil wickremasinghe nearly gave this country to be divided, thanks to this lady for kicking him out ( the only good thing done by her during her 11 years in power). I f we look at the results of the last Presidential, General and others, the rural folk hasnt forgotten Rajapakse and they are ever grateful for what he has done…only the fools (who think they are educated) in Colombo curse Rajapakse, they walk, drive like kings on Colombo streets cursing Rajapakse but little knowing that this peace – and No Threat of BOMBS on Streets – they have got is because of this STRONG & RESOLUTE LEADER….. Mahinda Rajapakse ta Jayawewa…May he live long…

      1. Please accept the fact that Sarath Fonseka’s expectation of the Victory was due to his over estimation of expected votes
      2. Name of Mahinda Rajapakse’s father is not DC Rajapakse but DA. Rajapakse.
      3. CBK nominated Mahinda as presidential candidate not because she liked it but she had no other alternative.
      4. If you ashamed to have been born in SL why not leave it cause SL will be better off without people like you

      You must be falling to illiterate class of CBK to talk like this without facts. CBK has no credentials except being a Bandaranaike to have become president. She left SLFP and with the infamous husband Kumaratunga created a rival party. Infect facts show that he was cahoots of Prbhakaran. What most of this so called educated people do not understand is that they live in a world of their own detached from common people. That is why Prbhakaran had that inroad to the minds of Tamil people as did Rajapaksa to Sinhalese people. All the so called development of the country was shared by few in Colombo and who spoke English. Sri Lanka was ruled by 3% English speaking parasites that deprived benefits to rural population. Rajapaksa has well understood this imbalance and has taken the fruits to common people in the village. With more than 90% people poor Rajapaksa with his thinking will last for long time.
      Without facts or figures you blame Rajapaksa for lots of crime. Even Duminda came from UNP. Most of the shady characters from ex UNPrs. As long as they are in UNP they are gentleman according to your assessment. Karu, Ravi, Ranil, Jayalath, Gamini, Lalith, JR…..they are the people who introduced this corrupt practices to Sri Lanka. Remember the days that teachers have to approach Gonawala Sunil to get transfers. Do not even go there. Turning mockery of the justice system, attacking Srachchandra co for holding a meeting….the UNP has done the biggest wise in Sri Lanka politics. CBK canvassed for her brother for Presidency without success as if SLFP is Bandaranaike property.

        CBK has already gone down in history as one of the most corrupt and inefficient leaders this country ever had. She has no dignity or grace and her power hunger is transforming her into the darling of ‘unseen’ forces inimical to Sri Lanka. The US Ambassador’s confidential cabals are a clear indication of the agenda of the western powers. They want a US-friendly puppet regime in Sri Lanka, so that they could not only plunder the resources of our country, but most importantly make use of the volatile political situation in Sri Lanka to destablize Sri Lanka.

        One question that should be posed to CBK is: Can you produce your GCE O/level certificate? This was the question she was asked by her late husband Vijaya, when he realized that he had in fact married a loose-charactered ‘radala’ fraud! Read the past copies of the Sunday Leader – during the time she was President – where Lasantha Wickremetunage has exposed her character and the life is led in France. Sorbonne my foot!

        The Rajapaksa’s surely have their weaknesses, but we Sri Lankans irrespective of party affiliations should support and protect this courageous President who has the guts to stand up to bullying by powerful forces. He is the ONLY leader who can take Sri Lankan forward. That is a fact whether some people like it or not.

      Aha how come we the majority like the patriotic leader and continue to back him? How come the majority of Sri Lankans endorse the regime repeatedly with thumping electoral victories? It looks like some folks (The bootlickers of the colonial masters) are quite jealous of his immense popularity which is swelling day by day!

      . By the way why not lend support for a regime change? At least you can serve Uncle Sam and Co, as they desperately need people like you.

      If you don’t like this land you were born, why not migrate and (Pehaps you can critise as a Lankan dispora kid) or simply you have no option but to watch with envy how the country develop. Its unstoppable. Dare to disagree?

      The Gen.Sarath fonseka is great “army general”(but not a grate civil leader) and gave the biggest contribution to win the war….

      but DO NOT forget he is NOT the only “ONE general”. The army could not win the battle without the support of other two. if you check past data, i remember one time Mr Raman the security advisor to india said that the number of Air strikes that won the war to SL. becasue of in the last battle the number of air strike in one day that carried out by the Air force is equal to the number of air strikes in whole month of previous battles.

      if you have small knowledge in leadership here is a hint…..the leadership is selecting the right person to right place for right duty.then the result will automatically come with the comitment of the leadership…..

      So, if you like or not the final honur wll go to the MR. because of the total leadership will make the difference.

      one hint also. who killed Osama bin ladan. the all westhern media saying OBAMA kill him NOT his army generals.

    CBK is a pot and she can’t call anyone black. I suppose enjoying absolute power makes it impossible for one to come to terms with irrelevancy. Re mood of the masses…well she’s entitled to opinion. We need to weigh all this with Butenis’ rabid need for regime change too. Her credentials are pretty horrendous.

        He is no dictator more than JRJ who created this constitution. Remember the architect of this constitution Ranil, Gamini, Athulathmudali co. When Premadasa got elected the very people who created the constitution for JRJ was worried about the dictatorial powers. Why was that? When Premadasa or Rajapaksa get elected this very constitution becomes bad. However, Rajapaksa handled the terrorist issue as a statesman defending the rights of the country and its people. The very fact that he rescued the masses from fear of death itself is a blessing Rajapaksa should hold office for a long time.
        Some are talking about Sarath Fonseka with all the glory. Have you heard Sarath Fonseka talking and glorifying Rajapaksa even after the war? All changed when he was influenced to run for Presidency. How a man with no political credentials suddenly parachute himself for presidency. His background, bribery, corruption, womansing, indiscipline kept away from his promotions. The earlier Army Commanders will vouch what a brat Fonseka was. Sri Lanka was just fortunate not to have fallen for lies and more lies of JVP and the UNP.

    Chandrika Kumaranatunga Bandaranaike (CBK) assumes she is educated but she nearly handed over half the country to a brutal terrorist. She lacked common courtesy too being late all the time for all her life – for cabinet meetings, important appointments, national day parades – name it and she was never there on time. Her tenure as President of SL was a disaster. Butenis aka the US Ambassador to Sri Lanka will listen to anyone who has anything adverse to say about the Rajapakse’s. She is just another ignorent American who perhaps knew the existance of a country called Sri Lanka when she got the transfer orders to Sri Lanka.

    The deeds speak to itself. The dictatorial regime will explore all angles to own apart of this country.. The corrupted regime will not fade soon. The oppositions are clueless , no effect , as every single day open house breakfast , lunch and dinner if offered at the president’s house. Thugs, gangsters ,drug dealers , pimps in galore running the country without any fear. law enforcement to the south is null , politicians call the shots before the law is implied.

    sigh i really dont think this would work. I as a sri lankan admit that both presidents have their mistakes and im so not taking a side. But look at where the country is headed.. its true that new roads are made along with auditoriums but at what cost? look at todays cost of living.. ts nice to have a beautiful country but there is no beauty in it if we cant afford to live in it. so who ever the leader is all i request is to bring down the cost of living. lets start by that… others will fall in place.

    P.S- please note im nt taking a side here cz end of the day all we need is a country we can live in happily :)

    The statements made by this irrelevant woman should not be taken seriously. Having ruled the Nation for more than a decade this woman who had the audacity to declare that Sri Lanka is a FAILED STATE, which is perceived as an unqualified admission of her failure as an Executive President. In fact she is the person directly responsible for rejecting the popular will of the Executive Committee of the party where, according to her own admissions made to the electronic media, 61 out of 64 people opposed MR’s appointment as the party leader.
    Right thinking people never approve the Machiavellian tactics adopted by MR, but compared to the monumental failure CBK and the puppet RW, right people of Sri Lanka has no other choice.

    Whilst she is entitle her opinion, she is the only person, out of 19 million Sri Lankans, that will describe Rajapaksa as she did. When you compare what she was able to achieve under her rule for 11 years & what MR has achieved within 6 years, without a doubt MR has achieved the unthinkable. This was reflected by 91% approval rate & how many times MR & his team were endorsed by the people of Sri Lanka. With reference to her remaks about economy, corruption and foreign relations, people of this country is well aware 1. How her private secretary Mr Kusumsiri Balapathibathi’s son made money, 2 Ronnie Peris made money & list goes on 3. Whether they prefer to maintain good relations with UK & USA , in order to accomadete blood thirsty Prabakara is good or bad ? 4. whether PTOM was good for the country? 5. List goes on. Accordingly, the people of this country had spoken very loudly to these questions by electing MR so many times. We like to ask her how ” free & fair it was under her rule as far as the elections were concoerned. Can she remember Wayaba Provincional Council elections?. She was a good cultured person and that was reflected in the dispute she had with her own brother for 15 years, not taking him to the SLFP until her monther died. This was the family culture she gave to the people of Sri Lanka. What an example! In short, had MR would have given her the 160 perch land she transffered to herself and Rs 900 million trust, where she assigned herself as a trustee , then economy is good and Rajapaksa’s culture is good and above all Sri Lanka is on track for economic prosperity. In short, she has a personal dispute with MR & that is her problem. There is no medicine for that.

That is way she humiliate people using such low level language. She is uneducated and ignorant. She display that from 1994 and still doing that. This shows her level of education and her so called “respectable family” status all the time. Indeed this woman is an envious and jealous slu_ ! She was once cuddled in Wasantha Raja’s bed and others who did the same even can’t be counted. That is the nature of their respectable family. Former President Mr Premadasa mentioned their pedigree in the parliament.

    But Mr MR has never ever humiliate people and never ever use this kind of low level language. He displayed that even during last presidential election campaign when SF was scolding people with “Balla”, “Naria” etc, MR never did the same. He showed his professionalism, education(He is a lawyer and he could passed all competitive exams in Sri Lanka to become so) and his family background.
    All the people in Sri Lanka know who are Rascals and illegitimate ones came from those “Radala Walawwas”.

    Considering the murders and disapearances carried out by the Rajapaksas with their helping Hambantota bank accounts while pretending to be Buddhist Chandrikas opinion must seem like a reference to the evil brothers..

    CBK made her money and the loot is outside Ceylon. Please go back to where your money is. She and her father did nothing for the non-Indians in Ceylon. CBK,s father divided the Sinhalaq community because he was financed by the Indians.
    Who paid for CBK’s education in France and western education of other siblings?
    No one from Attanagalle could afford an education in the West.

    Mahinda Rajapakse is a filthy bastard. He is a thief, liar, and mass murderer. His first act was to steal 800K USD in tsunami funds. His second act was to use Mavil Aru as an excuse to go to war with the LTTE. His third act was to murder 40K Tamils in cold blood, at the expense of SL’s reputation, just to win the next election. His fourth act was to change the Constitution so that his family can be in power for 100 yrs.

      By the tone of this message it is evident who the real bastard is. I am sure the writer of this message – HSD01 or whatever he calls himself – must never have known who his father was – probably because his mother must have lost count of the men she slept with.

      HSD01,
      You forget his bribing Prabakaran to order the Tamils to boycott the election in 2005, to reduce the chances of Ranil becoming President.

    If MR is bad then she has to admit that she is worse. Also, it is becoming quite apparent now that she is suffering from dementia which is very sad. I wish you a speedy recovery, Madam!

    CBK was the worst happened to SL. How on earth, she can talk about anyone else as uneducated?
    there were many times the top most governemnt officials waited whole days waiting for this drunken bitch to get her approval for most crucial decisions and sent back around 4:30 PM because she was not ready. Anything can be worst than that?
    this is a whore who sold anything possible in the country for her own comfort. I am no fan of Rajapaksa but this is not a person who can talk about anyone but her self.

    The nature of a person is shown by the words one speaks. What is coming out of CBK’s mouth is unbecoming of a balanced person, let alone a past leader of a country. Her words show that she is uneducated and uncultured, not Rajapakses. CBK and her siblings were educated in foreign countries not because they were bright but because of the political influence of their parents at that time. So, you have nothing to boast about your education madam.

      I agree with R Nagarajah. As Lord Buddha said: “A human being is not low-born or high-born; his (or her) conduct makes him (her) so”. She is a disgrace not only to her illustrious parents and her radala clan, but also to the entire population of Sri Lanka. According to those with close connections to the Bandaranaike clan, when (removed by the moderator )fight over the same lover, the language they use can be termed as “raw filth”.

    True example of “Sour Grapes”. This woman thinks that only if you belong to one of the affluent Colombo families and have studied in a Colombo school that one deserves to be the leader of Sri Lanka. Those days are gone stupid woman – the days of the aristocrat rule in our country is over! A huge majority of people – including those in Colombo – are convinced that it takes dedication and effective leadership as in Mahinda Rajapakse to achieve desired results for the country and its people. If this idiot woman or her best buddies like Ranil W were in power, Sri Lanka would have been in a worse situation. The country’s priority was PEACE – and elimination of those barbaric and ruthless LTTE terrorists – which MR delivered within a short period of him taking office as President of Sri Lanka – which is highly commended and appreciated by ALL Sri Lankans. So Chandrika, if you want the best for the country instead of what’s best for yourself, then just DROP DEAD!

    After the bomb blast that rocked the meeting she was addressing in Colombo some time ago, I think her brain also must have shaken pretty badly – thus the stupid aristocratic remarks she makes from time to time from a land far away from home. Some Sri Lankans believe that this woman is illiterate to be making stupid statements like this and others think that she has gone crazy. Either way, she’s bad rubbish that Sri Lanka has got rid of, fortunately!
