Yoshitha Wants To Be In His Father’s Security Team

Rajapaksa ‘prince’ Yoshitha has made a request to be appointed as a member of the security team assigned to his father.

YoshithaState Minister for Defence has stated that Yoshitha Rajapaksa has submitted a request to the Defence Ministry for him to be made part of the security team of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

However, he has taken three months leave of absence and an issue has raised on this matter by the JVP as an investigation is currently ongoing concerning his recruitment to the Navy and the scholarships that had been granted to him during the Rajapaska regime.

Ruwan Wijewardene had told media that a probe is being conducted into Yoshitha in collaboration with the Navy Commander on how he was relieved of duty and on how and why he was granted leave of absence without even being subjected to the inquiry that is continuing against him.

    “Rajapaksa ‘prince’ Yoshitha has made a request to be appointed as a member of the security team assigned to his father.”

    Smart move by the kid. He will be protected by his Daddy.

    Question: What happens when the Old man Dies?

      Ruwan Wijewardene,

      If you have any backbone arrest “Yo Baba”.

      Find out how he was sent to UK on a Navy scholarship. How he was allowed to do politics while being in uniform. Did “Yo Baba” order the assault on Malaka Silva? List is long.

      Ruwan Wijewardene, I understand your lethargy in dealing with things well. You are a benefactor of utter nepotism affecting Sri Lanka yourself. You guys need to keep scratchinng each other’s backs for mutual survival.

      Cheers!

        Hello Ben. The Defense Schools in the UK has a practice where they offer the children of Heads of States and Service Commanders scholarships to attend their programs. Yoshitha was one it’s beneficiaries.

        Similarly, The then Army Commanders Gen Hamilton Wanasinghe’s son too was invited to Sandhurst.

        Cheers.

          Vishvajith,

          UK aces that kind of bribing of 3rd world dictators & corrupt political families.

          Nearly all Arab & African dictators have Sandhurst military educated offspring. A sought after set of skills to keep down their frightened, uneducated populations. Courtesy United Kingdom.

          Cheers!

          PS: “Yo Baba” should not be offered a role in his Dad’s security detail. It is not a family matter. Providing security to ex-politicians, if needed is a professional task. Determined by the Sri Lankan state. Besides “Yo Baba” needs to be court martialed.

        If Lalith Kothalawala was compelled to loose his assets, why not Rajapakshes. Rajapakshe grabed them by force.
        Rajapakshes are born looters. Their blood is entwined with crimes.
        So the days ahead of us, we shoudl hear Rajapakshes being arrested.. then only we the people can start breath in.

          Be that as it may- but if Lalith Kothalawala ‘s billions were taken by force,
          the very same should be applicable against ALL THE assets grabed by Rajapakshes

          a) Mahinda himself
          b) His Namal Baby
          c) Yoshita baby
          d) and the other offspring who ever he is
          e) Gotas
          f) Basil’s
          and any others that fall onthe list

        Ben

        You got the point. All these politicians are corrupted bunch of bustards. No one in this system is pure to take the matter into law. As I said many times, Sri Lankan jail cells are for poor simons and jail hospitals are for Tissas.

        Lets see how the Upali Group acts on this matter.

        cheers

        It seems Ruwan Wije is a utter useless man who is more interested in the family business other than the ‘part timer’ politician.

        His dep minister post should be taken away ASAP together with the long John another Rajapaksa licker who was even a dignitary with MaRa on his official mega foreign trips on our tax payer money.

        This is shameless that a junior office like Yo-Shit-A gets 3 months leave from forces without any reason wiht an inquiry is in progress.

        Yahapalana need to answer the masses about this comedy of events.

      Yoshita, Namal Baby or anyone else related to the former or current cabinet men and women may have their dreams, but appointing them should occure going through qualifications and compliances to any areas where they are appointed. If the current rulers would allow their choices arbitory, so no difference will be seen in current adminsitration too. What people expect from current adminstiration is to see thing going on compliant to justice and fairness to all and sundry.

      The picture shows, how he feed PIDURU- hay to his son. These offsprings are not advised to behave compliant to law and order of the country. If Yoshita was well taught by him, he would not have left the country -while charges against him could fall was sure of him.-.- THOSE MEN IN ARMY NAVY AIRFORCE should first learn to be well disiplined.. and behave so.. else, that is the basic prerequisite that they deliberately violate – like father..

      Yes picture shows clearly how these offsprings are fed with Punnaku DIRECT by their father.
      How come Father is criminal
      Mother is alleged to be cirminal -gold business
      Namal baby is alledged to have raped several dozens of girls being throned under Nilbalukaya.

    Yoshitha – get an education. This is the end of your dad’s political life. He has done immense harm to his motherland.

    No one, not even you can protect him when Karma catches up with him. What goes around, always comes around.

    Another crime he committed was not giving a proper education and guiding his three sons in the correct path. Even you will curse him one day !

      What a waste of good values and character building taught by the School the sons went to, when there are so many of humbler means who would have been just beneficiaries of that schooling…..!

    The calamity that has befallen the Rajapaksas are their own creation. They richly deserve what they are getting back. In another couple of months there will not be any to sympathize with the family, once they stand exposed. Not even a robbed war victory will save MR and family.

    My Question is how he got leave without MOD approval. His application should have go through Navy HQ to the MOD. this mean All including Navy commander and Sec to MOD is responsible for his Leave. Need to discipline both of them. For Him to be his fathers security, First let him serve 2 to three years in fields and navy boats(not the Area HQs) as Any other member. Then they can consider.He need to work for his pay.

      To Mahesn. Remember his Uncle was Defence Secretary. Regarding him trying to be his Father’s Security. I think he is trying to form a Rugger team.

    Ask the bu,,rg…R to F…..of..!
    If the government concedes to the request without relieving him of duty .. then we know for certain how strings of MARA are attached to Ranil & Co!
    Investigate his assets, prosecute him like any other sri Lankan not Royalty no revenge no favourism!
    We don’t have to wait till JVP rouses the hornet’s nest!

    LOL this DUMB kid still thinks its his dad who is in power. Dumb [Edited out]… earn your place in the navy first… Pay all cost that went into that scholarship that u stole from a deserving Naval officer. Who let this [Edited out] out of the country for a 3 months stay in Dubai to drive around the Lamborgini, Aston Martin, Ferrari and other Super Luxury cars that were shipped via SriLankan Airlines?

    Do OTHER naval officers get to serve their parents or places of their choice as requested by this loser?

    He is shitting scared now that Yasra has been recalled and the Murder case of Wasim Thajudeen that was swept under the carpet will be re-opened

    Mr. Junior Minister: Please don’t “CON” us throwing wool over eyes, in saying that an investigation is being carried out as regards Mr. Yoshith’s “Recruitment” to the Navy and subsequent “scholarship” granted to him. There need not be any “INVESTIGATION” and if you say so, you are not equally qualified to hold that position in the Government. This is a simple matter that can be solved within a matter of “FEW HOURS” if not a “DAY”. Please do the following:
    1. Write a “Ministerial Memo” to the Commander of the Navy and ask him to submit a report within “Twenty Four Hours” explaining:
    (a) The Recruitment Procedure of the Navy. This will be readily available in print form and the Commander can attach that to his report.
    2. Did Mr. Yoshitha comply or qualify in terms of the laid down entry qualifications? If NOT, “Why” and “Who” made the decision to recruit him?
    3. What is the laid down criteria established. That too will be available in their “Manual of Procedures” and a copy of that can be attached to his reply.
    4. Did Mr. Yoshitha qualify to enroll in that scholarship programme? If not “Why” and “Who” decided to enroll him in that programme?
    5. As the Commander do you agree that this “RECRUITMENT” and “SELECTION” were in compliance with the policy of the Navy?
    6. Who decided to relieve him of his duties and is it in keeping with the established rules?
    7. Who and why he was granted to leave the country while there is a pending “inquiry”? Is it in keeping with the “Policy” of the Navy?

    Do you, Mr. Junior Minister, think that there must be an “INVESTIGATION” to ascertain the above “FACTS”. I say again, please DO NOT, “CON” us. I know with experience, that matters of this nature could be and must be finalized within a “Few Hours”, if not a “Day” It is time for BOTH of you as the “Minister In-charge” and the Commander to get out of that “BOX” of “RED TAPES” and “PRIORITIZE” the work in hand. The people are getting impatient and a feeling that many of you are merely “CON ARTISTS” has begun to develop. Time is running out fast.

    Nearly 40 days already gone, Less than 60 left, before 100 Day Manifesto of CBK, Sira,Sobitha, Rathne and Champika expires.

    Besides many goodies like changing the Constitution,it promised, to bring Milk and Honey for the Dalits to celebrate the Sinhala Tamil New Year with full Good Governance.

    Price of Cotthamalli and Saffron powder have come down…

    But nothing else except fuel which has been down even Down Under, according to my Elders there. although the Elite , Anglican, Vellala and Muslim PM takes full credit t through his new convert to Hinduism, Ravi Galleon Karu.

    However the Elite PM has gone full bore to arrest anyone from the Rajapaksa side with even a hint of any wrong doing .

    Ranil got his own mate arrested , alleging he forged a document to say Ranil has an agreement with Samabadan to give the latter his Eelaa.

    What a revelation..

    My elders tell me Tissa was one of the few true Buddhists in the Elite Anglican Vellala UNP who has an unblemished report card.

    Now Ranil has arrested Mrs Weerawansa alleging she has Dual Passports both issued by the Republic of SL.

    How cool.

    In the mean time all alleged LTTE activists, supporters and even cadres who carried out attacks , and who are in custody now are to be released..

    Poor Tissa and Mrs Weerawansa must have committed felony.

    On the other hand Wella Dudda is naming even Rajapaks as being on his pay roll..

    But no Elite or Anglicans, although it is common knowledge that known alleged Drug King pins are all ex UNP MPs and members who changed sides..

    Now Elite PM even summons the Media Company owners to Temple trees.

    And threaten them instead of giving them Kiribath and Ambul Thiyal.

    And the Elite PM goes even further and promise to expunge the investors who have big share holdings in our minnow CSX.

    At least Dalits like me are safe,

    Now they have appointed a Commission to probe why a Son wants to protect his Dad?.

    I mean can Rajapaksa rely on a rogue .PM’s nephew providing Security when even the Military Intelligence Officers weren’t safe when this Elite Ranil was in PM’s seat last time?.

    Subj: FALLEN -A new vendor at Medamulana Market

    Had a chance to stay in power like a KING for two more years…
    Had a chance to rule Sri Lanka with good governance.
    Had a chance to disassociate himself with drug lords-
    Had a chance to establish law and order..
    Had a chance to establish racial harmony –
    Had a chance to not polarize society along racial divisions
    Had a chance to not to listen to astrologers
    Had a chance to understand the impermanence of life
    Had myriad opportunities to bring fairness to the society..

    Who else would call an election two years before the term ends?
    ……..a fool?

    Not only love is blind but power makes a man blind too

      You sound very jealous – how many previous leaders had all those virtues? JR, Premadasa??? People have short memories. JR wanted to be king forever, so created Exec Presidency and brought in proportional rep system hoping UNP will win every time. Remember Premadasa sitting on a replica Sinhasanaya (Throne)- becoming a multimillionaire – and what happened to Richard Zoysa and hundreds of others who criticised him and his overdressed wife??? More Sinhalese were killed and buried in mass graves in his time than happened to Tamils at the end of the war.

      And here is JR’s nephew Ranil and Premadasa’s son Sajith trying to follow in their footsteps. Poor My3 is well and truly trapped. Talk about nepotism??? Princes and heirs all of them.

    We salute JVP and Hela Urumaya.
    Present government is very lethargic and doubtful.

    Hope Anura Dissanayake and Champika Ranawaka will continue to accomplish their task as they promised before presidential election.

    Whole Rajapaksa family must be brought to justice and incarcerated for life.

    They must rejoice the life style of prison as our War Hero General Sarath Fonseka experienced.

    Hello inside informants!
    Is this B…gg..r still paid a salary while seeing he world while in the navy, officially paid and bills paid? Don’t try to fool us, we know Ranil had favours done by mara! Obviously MY3 too would have had many favours! I would love to hear the filth MR uttered and the content in it when he gave the letter of resignation! When the security guys prevented the fate of LoKu athula! By the way any investigations on that score!

    Problem here is with the Secretary defense.The newly appointed (bassa) Basnayake the day he took over duties his first comments to the media was that “he got the blessings of the former defense secretary to take over this chair”. This bassa did not even thank his excellency Maithreepala for appointing him instead praised looser Gota. So JVP should first attack this henchman Bassa and rest of the incapable civil servants who heads the ministries…
