Wimal Wants MR To Contest But MR Still Undecided

Several allies of the UPFA including Wimal Weerawansa’s National Freedom Front today expressed their intention of fielding former President Mahinda Rajapaksa as the Prime Ministerial candidate at the upcoming general elections.

Those who seem to be working towards building this coalition presently includes Wimal Weerawansa, Vasudeva Nanayakkara, Udaya Gammanpila and Dinesh Gunawardena.

However, UPFA General Secretary Susil Premajayantha said that no such plan has been made with regard to the upcoming polls.

Meanwhile, when questioned about it by the media at the Prison Hospital today MR said he has not received an invitation for such an endeavour still while adding he is unaware of it because he arrived in Colombo straight from his hometown.

    If people hate someone most – he is WIMAL BURUWANSE. Not many would take serious when anything comes out from his cesspit. Soon his wife will be arrested. So this could be the reason to hurt Nimal Siripala Silva, Buruwanse is working die hard to bring Mr Medamulana to the stage. Wait and see how it goes forward. People will not bear it anymore. If sharks would be escaped from being caught for all the felonies commited during last regime – masses will get down to the streets – jaya niyathai.

        Wimal’s brother, an instant billionaire

        TUESDAY, 10 FEBRUARY 2015 07:4

        It is revealed that there doubts regarding how Sarath Weerawansa, the elder brother of former minister Wimal Weerawansa, earned many of the assets he possesses at present came to be owned by him.

        The house at 115, Diyawanna Udyanaya, Battaramulla belongs to the National Housing Development Authority. These houses were made available to ministers. How elder Weerawansa possesses the house is an issue.

        A Mitsubishi jeep bearing registered number KT 5335 is registered under Mr. Sarath Weerawansa’s wife’s name. He also possesses the car bearing registered number HU-9099 and the jeep with registered number 65-1695. He also has a salon in Dehiwela area.

        When he came to live at Battaramulla he did not possess even a motorcycle but how did he come to possess all these assets within 6 years ask employees of the Ministry of Housing.

          People recommend Prez and PM to appoint a commission to examine how those men became overnight millionaire MR regime performed their duties right. All these should be brought before the people. If Yahapalaanaya is introduced; we must not let waiting longer to address these issues. Those who earned their millions illegally should be NATIONALIZED. Because all these were tax payers funds. The poor had to sacrifice that with theirlives others have to struggle for survvial for their lives.. so there should be a justice and fairness in a society that the politicians could make it transparent and accoutnable… that the current adminsitration is the start for a civlized democrazy

      Yes this subhuman should be brought back to his living habitat- whichih is the wild forest. He has no respect at all towards anyone. How come ? He was rewarded by MR again and again. I have seen this among Pakistanies. Inbourn dimwits were hired for their social events there – so that all the audience could enjoy. In the same manner, MOST uneducated prez of the nation -Mahinda siting with others enyjoy while WW (ahikuntikaya) uses even unbelievalle kind of bad words to attack the rivals. Can you imagine ? Where has been dignity and respect towards its mankind gone in this country…. ?

      Natural justice to the Sri Lankan people requires getting Mahinda Rajapakse back to political action through whatever means. Only that will correct the electoral robbery of Jan 8 when the presidential election was robbed through conspiracy and NGO orchestrated electoral fraud.

      Mahinda, after all, is the leader who saved the country from the LTTE menace (wheres Ranil and Chandrika nearly handed over the country to Prabhakaran), and has won a clear majoririty of the ‘heartland votes’ of Sri Lankans, winning 91 elctorates and 5.7 million votes.

      If the SLFP does not want him, he should form his own grouping and fight to continue to his service to the country. Though the UNP might benefit from such a division, this may be the hidden hope of ‘back bone kess Sirisena and conspiring Chandrika who owe a debt to the UNP.

      If Mahinda contests under any flag, Ranil, Sira and Chandrika will go to hell in a handbasket.

      Bring him back Vasu, you can still go down in history!

    This Unahapuluwa will have to end up as a joker soon. Alone the manner he attacked today’s Prez of the country on MR’s stages were unbelievable. Not anyone with a little respect would turn to hello – WImal weerawanse will earn more enemies sooner than later. These are the calculable fate of his kind of politicians.

    The fight against US/NATO imperialist agenda towards China should be at the center of the campaign to restore MR as the executive PM. Only the relatively unknown (but theoretically superior)WSWS/Socialist Equality Party campaigned on the anti US perspective during the last Presidential Elections.Read WSWS Sri Lanka analysis on this.Only they proved Chandrika is working for the CIA and was responsible for the illegal coup that brought down the people’s government of MR.

    The current so called anti corruption campaign by the US/CIA cronies in UNP/Chandrika/Ranil

    MR has a popular vote base to fight US agenda.Wimal, Vasu, Dinesh,Udaya have the necessary progressive credentials to lead such a struggle against the US plans.Once the country is brought back to the China’s orbit, all fears/anxieties of Sri Lankans involving themselves in WWIII will disappear.

    Victory for the anti imperialist struggle of the Sri Lankan masses !!!

      Do you really believe MR regime was standing up to what you call the US/NATO/CIA threat to Sri Lanka’s security. If so you must be living in the cuckoo land.

      Today (9/2/2015) in the Rupavahini political discussion programme, Vedikawa, one of the politicians you look up to and who was a minister in Mahinda’s government, Vasudeva Nanayakkara, openly admitted that former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapakse had secretly signed an agreement for military co-operation with the then US Ambassador Robert Blake. Vasudeva further said when he questioned Mahinda about this, Mahinda had simply brushed the matter aside by saying, “Oh, that is an agreement signed by two Americans.”

      What a joke Sri Lankan politics was under Mahinda!

    MR was the President of the country for 10 years. He was the first President to be defeated by a Presidential election.
    MR after holding the highest office should leave politics with dignity.
    Wimal, Vasu Udaya Gammanpilla and Vitharana will be in the political wilderness if SLFP decides to go it alone at the general elections. So they are hanging on to MR who has got a vote base. If MR leads another party other than the UPFA or SLFP he will be defeated.
    MR should know that the above named wants him for their political survival.

    Weerawansa’s reputation for using anyone to further his agenda goes without saying. This guy should be put away for his innumerable illegal dealings that have inflated his bank accounts and possessions. That would be good riddance of putrid rubbish.

    It’s doubtful that even MARA will succumb to his obvious ploy. A true-blue anal aperture to be sure!

    Wimal, Dew, Vasu and Tissa know that only MR back in power can rescue them from political wilderness they are doomed to. I really can’t understand why Dinesh has teamed up with them. I don’t believe MR when he says that he is not aware of this new political alignment or he has yet to decide whether he should re-enter active politics. Wimal is a puppet manipulated by MR. He is MR’s mouthpiece.MR is a shrewd politician. He might try to grab the leadership of the majority group now led by Nimal Siripala while promoting the new alignment as an alternative to fall back upon be the need arises.

    Weerawansa, Dinesh G, Udaya G and the like owe their political existence and upward mobility to Mahinda Rajapakse. Without him, they are zilch. Weerawansa’s predicament is worse because his arrogant wife, of lowly beginnings, is now hooked to expensive tastes, the high life, Los Angeles holidays and so on. Without the prospects of unprincipled politics Weerawansa will be back as a lowly newspaper hack or drummer. I don’t know how far it is true that Weerawansa’s children are now in England in better known schools – not in Sinhala for sure. Will someone confirm and, if true, expose this charlatan to the Sinhala public.

    Any plan to bring in MR as leader again by sections of the party will further splinter the already divided SLFP. Men like the Veddha Nimal Siripala, the former Bank of Ceylon Clerk Susil Premjayanth, Ethanol Smuggler Johnston nurse high political hopes. They will do all they can to sabotage a Rajapakse return. And then there is the wounded CBK whose life’s ambition is to bring the Rajapakses down.

    MR might contest through the MEP. Interesting to see how many seats the MEP will get when MR joins the party.How many of the 4.7 million who voted for MR will vote for the MEP?We will be able to see his strength when the SLFP party shield is removed from him.If MEP does very well with many candidates in parliament,then MR will try to get back into the SLFP as its leader one day just like Chandrika did when she came back to the SLFP from the party that Vijaya kumaratunge founded.Chandrika also left the SLFP because of anura and sirima.

    In the alternative MR can form his own party,but i doubt he has the time to do that quickly before the parliamentary elections.He would prefer to go into a party like MEP and go out again.

    Anyway the SLFP cannot have 2 elephants chandrika and MR in the same room.The split in the SLFP is a foregone conclusion.We are entering a phase in our elections from 2 major party systems to 3 now.

    Weerawansa, Dinesh Gunawardena, Gamanpilla, and Vasu are now bankrupt politicians. Their scapegoat or poster boy is now Rajapakse to contest the next general election. They know Rajapakse is very charismatic and holds some popularity among the rural folks. These guys are promoting Rajapkase to contest parliamentary election so that they can hang on his tail to enter the parliament. These guys are crooks and Rajapakse lost his self esteem for keeping company with such crooks and cost his election. People should keep in mind and not vote for these guys who play with the sentiments of the people to gain entry into parliament for them to plunder wealth. Before the election Bribery Commission should investigate Wimal and these crowd. The election commissioner should bar these guys from contesting election whoever is under investigation.

      If Mahinda Rajapakse contests under the MEP it will be tacit admission he has no place in the SLFP. MEP, at any rate, has been an-anti minority communalist party with very little popular backing. Besides, one needs large sums of money to fight elections. Now that the Rajapakses are in the dumps the big money-bags like Dhammika Perera, Sumal Perera, Ajith Kabara Lal, Casino Wijeratne, drug traffickers Kudu Mervin, Duminda and and the lot will shy away from him. The Chinese never back a weak and potentially losing horse. With the Tamil diaspora pushing for international investigations against Rajapakse War Crime and HR violations and the Indians turning the other way because the Rajapakses allowed a free run for Chinese military involvement here, it is almost curtains for the Medamulana Rajapakses. Will he consult his infamous Astrologer on his post-Jan 08 fortunes?

      By the way how did former Gampaha MP Athula Jayasinghe, the famed Loku Athula of the former JVP die in the precincts of Temple Trees?

      They are obvious divided within them on the issue of bringing MR back to active politics. Nimal Spala et all is making every effort MR to stay as a consultant as CBK’s role would be, while the rest have to work on the unity of the party under the guidance of MY3. NimalSpala himself is greedy at becoming the PM- so theere will be a kind of further divisions within the party to be tremoued when holding f2f talks next week. However, I have no doubt when studying the latest statements made by MY3 YESTERDAY that he would allow anyone to escape from convictions – that being an another issue -re gardless of their support/mediation in current YAHAPALANYA process.

    Ranil Wickremasinghe has out maneuvered everyone. These jokers thought that they could hold RW to ransom by bringing in a no-confidence motion least expecting him to be the first to dissolve Parliament. Now they have to retreat in haste. MR’s corruption will be spoken off for the time being and action will be taken after the General Election, because it is important to have MR out at election time to split the SLFP vote, even allowing him to contest. Remember you are dealing with a Fox and a half, a veteran. Others are novices compared to him.

      Dear Gamini ,

      Do you think it’s a prudent thing for allowing MR to contest General Election ? what MR wants is to be back on with the same abusive governance style , which he is very much accustomed , it has been reported that the next General election is scheduled to be held in some where in June , if that is the case we ‘ve got more than 4.5 months time , why can’t the new regime initiate a case against MR now ? is Ranil having back room deals with MR ? why did RW try to have a negotiated deal (Diplomatic post) with Mohan Peris ? why a well known MR stooge , long John A had been appointed with the law & order responsibilities ? why did Singapore Sarath (Kelaniya Mervin’s sttoge) appoint as his co-coordinator ?

      As the way things go , it’s going to be a repetition of 2002-2004 RW led government , that time CBK took away RW government , this time MR will not hesitate to do the exact thing under total different circumstances !

        Srilal,

        Half the 5.8 mil who voted for MR was unaware what MR was up to. His extravagance with public funds, stashing away commissions running in to billions and his murderous ways of disposing his opponents. When all this come to light more than half would not vote for him in the future. Further MR will no longer have access to the election machinery to distort or funds to spend to bloat his image. MR would be a poor loser and he will only help to split the SLFP vote base. All will be able to see how popular MR is, if he contests the coming general election.

          Getting to Parliament is the ultimate goal for MR , to do that , MR doesn’t need 5.8 Million or even half of the that amount ,without any trouble , He will be elected as an MP without any propaganda or any party affiliations , that is the bitter truth ! once he get there , all the old guards will be crawling before him and seeking forgiveness , followed by unanimously appointing him as the leader of the coalition , this is the most likely scenario to happen aftermath the General election . question is , what is Ranil going to do about it ? will he follow his usual wait and see approach ? did Ranil have any sort of prearranged deal with MR ? it has been revealed that crook Thiru Nadesan had accompanied Ranil to negotiate with MR for his surrender on the 9 th morning , what were the conditions which MR had demanded ? appointing MR long term buddy , Long John A with Law & order , is it a coincident? hadn’t long John and Ranil helped MR to escape from a potential murder trial in the past ? don’t you think Gen fonseka deserves long john’s post ? who is obstructing Gen fonseka’s entry to the parliament ? had Gen fonseka been entrusted with the law & order , none of these mockery will we be seeing today , won’t we ? how come that Yoshitha bloke got the clearance to leave the country ? why Shiranthi’s allegations case has been swept under the carpet ? what about Gotabaya ,does’t he still behave with extreme arrogance as before , who gave him that much confidence ? Namal is confident and keep challenging the authority to prove any of his misdeeds , what’s happening ? even MY3 said to be clueless !

          Mervin silva had personally gone to CID to hand over serious charges against the siblings , but nothing seems to be working , who is pulling the strings now ? if President feels the same , then whom should we talk to ? Gamini , i’m asking all these to clarify my doubts , please don’t get offended , if you know the answers , please be kind enough to share with us.

          Thanks

            It is not long we have to wait to see what will happen to the future of MR in politics. Further Ranil is not going to be twice bitten, after the unbelievable ouster of the entire Rajapaksa clan without a drop of blood being shed.

    The pro-MR group- Wimal, Dinesh, Dew, Tissa, Vasu and Udaya – has already started fanning the flames of racial hatred and raising the bogey of separatism. The group is using Udaya for this purpose. Vasu, Tissa and Dew cannot openly toe this line.But they can safely promote slogans like , ” Let us save our ‘MAWBIMA’ from American imperialists!’ and ‘Mahinda is the only leader capable of taking on the mighty Western imperialists!’ I can’t really understand Dinesh’ loyalty to MR. I think the Bodu Bala Sena, Ravana Balakaya and other fringe extremist Buddhist groupings like the one headed by Gunadasa Amarasekera are waiting for the opportune moment to join the pro-MR group. I hope that the Maithri administration is alive to the emerging scenario.

      None of these fellows mentioned,have a trusted national
      voice although some of them are known for relentless funny
      remarks against national figures like RW and CBK.This 5.8
      million votes is their mantra now after the “war hero”
      vaporised.My3 is the president and the leader of SLFP.RW
      is the PM and the leader of UNP.To beat the size of bribe
      that was unleashed by MARA during and before the election,
      My3 RW duo with empty pocket,I mean from the opposition,
      had no alternative but to offer better alternatives within
      a couple of weeks after win.This budget alone proves MARA
      too could have done it long before.I too can’t understand
      the arrogance of Dinesh and Vasu trying to undermine people
      verdict and credible allegations against the family and
      their stooges.I think we are going to see fire crackers in
      the coming months.People are nervous to see culprits get
      their dues.Not all but at least a few.
