Abuse of Power by Presidents of Sri Lanka
Posted on September 24th, 2010

By Garvin Karunaratne, Ph.D.(Michigan State University) Former Government Agent, Matara District

Upul Jayawardena, a columnist states that the Port of Hambantota could be the armageddon for President Rajapaksa in the manner that the leasing out of oil tanks in Trincomalee to the USA in the early Eighties by President Jayawardena did cause India to train and equip the LTTE army, which led to the LTTE insurrection. He surmises that the Port of Hambantota could be a Chinese Sea base.
President Rajapaksa’s record is that he is in firm control and one need not doubt for a moment as to whether he will be taken for a ride by China or anyone else.
Indira Gandhi, the Prime Minister of India did not like Sri Lanka going over to the orbit of the USA away from the Non-Aligned path that Prime Minister Sirimavo had followed.

The moment I heard that oil tanks were to be leased out and more importantly, some ten square miles of land in Trincomalee was to be leased out to a US company for satellite reconnaissance, I knew that there would be untold trouble for Sri Lanka. While the oil tanks could have provided oil for US ships, satellite reconnaissance meant that the USA was planning to control South Asia. India could no longer remain silent.

India got down Prabhakaran and his rag tag followers and trained them in special army camps in South India. That was not all, they were provided with sophisticated weapons and sent back to destabilize Sri Lanka. India thereby created a terrorist organization that held Sri Lanka at bay for around three decades. At that time Colonel Rajapaksa of Gemunu Watch one of my confidantes in the Army said that the LTTE had weapons that were far superior to what the Army had.

The fact that India was training the LTTE cadres was not known in definite terms and the first proof was in an article by Denzil Peries the Deputy Editor of South, an International Journal. Here there was foolproof photographic evidence. Very strangely Denzil met with his death in 1985. Denzil went for work in the morning, fit as a fiddle and his brother in law, the late Cappie Kannangara, a close friend of mine arrived in Cambridge where he was to speak at a debate on the LTTE question at the University of Cambridge. By noon, Cappie received a telephone call that Denzil had died at a restaurant and hurried away and I had to take his place. Denzil Peries’ death was perhaps an assassination!

President Jayawardena caved into the might of India when under Lalith Athulathmudali, the Sri Lankan Army had cornered the LTTE to the coast of Vadamaratchi. Rajiv Gandhi wanted the Sri Lankan army to be stopped. He flew a few sorties of his fighters in battle array over the City of Colombo and frightened President Jayawardena.. Rajiv Gandhi then forced President Jayawardena to stop battling the LTTE and to accept the 13 th Amendment to the Constitution of Sri Lanka. Deputy Minister Lalith Athulathmudali resigned from his portfolio in protest.

President Jayawardena was so frightened of Rajiv Gandhi that he accepted the 13 th Amendment given by Rajiv Gandhi and got it voted in Parliament to please Rajiv Gandhi. This was clearly an abuse of power.

On can compare President Jayawardena with President Rajapaksa. When the LTTE was cornered at Vadamaratchi, why did President Jayawardena agree to stop battling the LTTE?. He had the absolute ability to tell Rajiv Gandhi to stop bullying Sri Lanka in the manner that President Rajapaksa told all the Superpowers when they wanted him to stop battling the LTTE in May 2009. But President Rajapaksa could not be moved by all the Superpowers including the USA that at first cajoled him and later even threatened him. President Jayawardena abused his power in becoming a poodle to Rajiv Gandhi and even foisting the 13 th Amendment onto the Constitution of Sri Lanka. On the contrary President Rajapaksa stood by the people of the country and maintained the sovereignty of Sri Lanka in not stopping the assault on the LTTE.

The Constitution of a country is the most sacred document and it was marred by the act of President Jayawardena to accept the 13 th Amendment from Rajiv Gandhi and to get it enacted by the Parliamentarians. That was abuse of power.

It is a well know fact that at that time President Jayawardena held undated letters of resignation from all his Members of Parliament other than the Minister of Finance, Ronnie de Mel. President Jayawardena had even incarcerated his Members of Parliament in a Five Star Hotel in the City and he would go there in person and march them to Parliament to make them vote as he pleased. That was also abuse of power.

Comparatively President Rajapaksa never had undated or dated letters of resignation from any Members of Parliament to force them to vote as he pleased.

By forcing the 13 th Amendment India wanted to bifurcate Sri Lanka, and ,with the combined Northern and Eastern Provinces, Trincomalee would be within their grasp. At first India thought of using the LTTE and once Prabhakaran reneged they thought of establishing their own civilian pro Indian force. Actually the Indian Peacekeeping Force was in the process of establishing their own force when President Premadasa wanted them out. Sri Lanka can never trust India.

The 13 th Amendment needs to be thrown into the dustbin. It is not SriLankan; it is Indian- an instance where India interfered with a sovereign country and forced its ruler to accept it. The 13 th Amendment deserves to be taken off the Statute Book.

President Jayawardena did not hold a general election in 1982. Instead he held a referendum and got the life of Parliament extended for six years. That was an abuse of power. Comparatively it is said that some Members of Parliament had approached President Rajapaksa in 2009 and had wanted him to hold a referendum instead of a General Election, but President Rajapaksa, the true democrat he was, had totally refused.

President Rajapaksa did not abuse his power in the manner that President Jayawardena had done.

President Premadasa who succeeded President Jayawardena too sacrificed the interests of Sri Lanka in providing arms and equipment to the LTTE. The then chief of the Army General Attygala as well as Minister Ranjan Wijeratne had tried to convince and stop him but had failed. A massive amount of sophisticated weaponry got into LTTE hands and that included 2000 T 56 automatics, 50,000 grenades and rocket propelled grenades. It is well known that the LTTE used this arsenal against the Sri Lankan forces. That was the time when at the Peacetalks it was agreed that the Police in the East should be handed over to the LTTE and assurances were given of safe passage. Some six hundred and seventy that handed themselves for safe keeping were gunned down. The President kept silent. Arming the enemy amounts to abuse of power.

The Peace Talks held with the LTTE during President Premadasa’s time were of a very peculiar kind, in that for every day of the Peace Talks, the LTTE had to be bribed with a million rupees to participate. That too was abuse of power.

President Premadasa is well known for his accomplishments in poverty alleviation, but these instances marr his great record. .

It is a fact that ultimately he was assassinated by the LTTE.

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe during his stint in 2001- 2004 too abused his power in selling the sovereignty of Sri Lanka to the LTTE.

The Ceasefire Agreement of 2002 with the LTTE was an Agreement that belittled the sovereignty of Sri Lanka because for the first time it accepted the LTTE as the sole authority of the lands that they had occupied by force.

The Ceasefire Agreement was said to have been drafted by Balasingham, an LTTE leader and forced on Ranil Wickremasinghe by the Norwegians. It was signed by Ranil Wickremasinghe without the knowledge of President Kumaranatunge.

It was known only to a few of his Ministers and never discussed in Parliament or in his Cabinet of Ministers before it was signed.

Dr John Gooneratne, a leading official of the Peace Secretariat had recently stated that the Government of Sri Lanka had wanted four clauses included into the Ceasefire Agreement. The four were: the Ceasefire Agreement would pave the way for a negotiated solution, prohibit the smuggling of arms ammunition and equipment, the areas under the LTTE control would be open for political activity by other political parties prevent forced conscription for children None of these facts were incorporated into the Ceasefire Agreement.

Yet Ranil Wickremasinghe signed the Agreement which was detrimental to Sri Lanka.

He was totally looking after the interests of the LTTE. Can anyone imagine a Prime Minister of Sri Lanka looking after the interests of the LTTE? Ranil Wickremasinghe did not care about sacrificing the sovereignty of Sri Lanka to the LTTE. It was a total abuse of power.

During the Ceasefire Agreement, though the Agreement stipulated that both the LTTE and the Sri Lankan areas should remain as it stood at the date of the Agreement, Ranil Wickremasinghe allowed the LTTE to infiltrate into the entirety of the Trincomalee District. Only the Port of Trincomalee, the Army and Navy Camps were government held territory. At that time a person who took ill at a Nilaveli hotel in the night had to obtain a night pass from the LTTE that controlled the roads to get medical treatment at the Trincomalee Hospital. Nilaveli is only eight miles away from Trincomalee. The Port of Trincomalee was actually surrounded by newly established LTTE Army Camps. Why did the Government not take action to stop the infiltration.

The inaction on the part of Ranil Wickremasinghe in allowing the LTTE to expand their area amounts to abuse of power.

Can anyone even imagine a Prime Minister of Sri Lanka castigating and reprimanding the Navy Chief for gunning down a LTTE gun boat. That was no other than Ranil Wickremasinghe.

It is well known that Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe connived with Norway to give the LTTE sophisticated high tec broadcasting and television equipment.  Ranil Wickremasinghe also allowed the LTTE to fly in weapons via the Katunayake Airport and the weaponry was sent to the LTTE by air, without being checked.

This actually helped the LTTE to build up their arsenal.

Rail Wickremasinghe’s actions show that he is a firm supporter of the LTTE and is an agent of Superpowers like Norway who are all pro LTTE!

President Kumaranatunge had the ability to abrogate the Ceasefire Agreement but she did not take any action. That too amonunts to absue of power.

To hold the reigns of power, to live in pomp and pageantry and not to safeguard the country that one is duty bound to serve amounts to an abuse of power.

President Kumaranatunge eventually took over the Ministry of Defence under her control but did not take any action to get the land occupied by the LTTE in the Trincomalee District back to government control.

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe’s period is also noted for the instance where The Assistant Superintendent of Police at Kandy in his investigations gave away the activities of the Army Deep Penetration Unit under General Ratwatte.

This army intelligence unit and its function- deep penetration had been kept a total secret. This was thereby totally exposed and Ranil Wickremasinge allowed army secrets to become known to the LTTE. The result was that the LTTE gunned down some 43 sleuths-war heros and neither Prime Minister RanilWickremasinghe nor President Kumaranatune did take any action to stop this It was clearly abuse of power on the part of both the Prime Minister as well as the President.

President Rajapaksa when compared with all the above Presidents and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe has so far acted in the interests of the people and has safeguarded the sovereignty of the country at all times.

President Rajapaksa at the initial stages invited the LTTE for talks, made overtures for a peaceful solution but soon realized that the LTTE was not only not interested but was expanding their Area.

It all came to a head when the LTTE deprived the farmers at Mavil Aru of water for cultivation. This was the turning point and he directed the armed forces to ensure that the LTTE was ousted from the area in order to bring normalcy.

Thereafter he directed the Army to take over the LTTE Army camps that they had unauthorisedly established in the Trincomalee District. Was this an abuse of power? It was essentially a humanitarian act to relieve people- citizens of Sri Lanka from the clutches of the LTTE.

In May 2009, when the Sri Lankan Army had cornered the LTTE to the shores at Mullativu and the President had also drawn a dragnet of naval ships to surround the area, the Superpowers led by the powerful USA, told President Rajapaksa to stop battling and defeating the LTTE. It was later revealed that unknown to the Government of Sri Lanka, the Japanese under the guise of providing Tsunami Aid had even constructed an under-ground water way sufficient for a submarine to get through to the sea, but no one could escape because of the dragnet of naval vessels that guarded the shores. This was a last ditch attempt of the Superpowers to give the LTTEa new leash of life. But President Rajapaksa did not cave in. It would have been an abuse of power if he had caved in like what President Jayawardena did earlier.

Thereafter, President Rajapaksa faced the wrath of the Superpowers who were threatening to take him to the International Court of Justice for War Crimes and Genocide, in the manner that President Milesovich and Karadawich were incarcerated. The former died. in remand and today Karadawich is being charged.

Even today President Rajapaksa is being hounded by the United Nations that have initiated investigations. President Rajapaksa stands undeterred in the face of all these odds, all created by his standing firm and not sacrificing the sovereignty of Sri Lanka.

It is true that the Chinese were used to get the Port of Hambantota constructed. In the Eighties the Victoria Dam on the Mahaweli River was constructed by British companies with British Aid. Today people have even forgotten that the British were involved. It is today a national asset.

The Hambantota District was my home for close upon two years in the Fifties. It was no man’s land with very little facilities. During that period my bath was either in the sea or by night at the street tap. Groups of government staff officers hog the street taps at mid night for their bath. That was a time when during the season the air at Weerawila was full of floating cotton. Somehow we gave up planting cotton and I took over all the cotton storage for paddy. Hambantota is our cotton belt and with the development in Hambantota I am certain that Sri Lanka can be self sufficient in cotton .

President Rajapaksa stands out as a personage of firm determination, someone who can be trusted to lead Sri Lanka in the future. It is not my words that speak out: it is his actions that tell us that he can be trusted.

In his address at the United Nation’s General Assembly yesterday, he stated:

“Mahinda Chintanaya- Vision for the Future, my election manifesto articulates my vision of having sound infrastructure at the national, provincial and rural levels, which is vital for the inclusive growth that will make development meaningful to the entirety of society.”

We all know that he defeated the LTTE menace from our shores and there can be no doubt that he can usher in a realm of prosperity. Sri Lanka, since achieving independence had built up a development infrastructure to serve the people. In detail the Cooperative Wholesale Establishment with its retail shops imported goods in competition with the private sector and sold the goods at cheap rates.

The Marketing Department implemented a Vegetable & Fruit Purchasing Scheme which purchased from producers at prices higher than offered by traders and sold them in the City outlets at low prices. This effectively controlled inflation because the Marketing Department kept a low margin of around 10% to 15% for transport and handling while private traders kept as much as 100%. Later equipped with Cold Storage and a Large Cannery the total produce of pineapples, Red Pumpkin and Ash Pumpkin was purchased and made into jam and juice, making Sri Lanka self sufficient. Paddy was purchased at a premium price from producers and milled at Rice Mills owned by the Government.

This entire development infrastructure was abolished and dismantled by President Jayawardena. That amounts to a crime, because the people suffered. In the case of the Cooperative Wholesale Establishment, it was dismantled by no other than Ranil Wickremasinghe, the one person that complains today that prices are too high. He is today in the realm of amnesia as he has forgotten that he himself caused it.

The task of re- building up this lost development infrastructure has fallen on the shoulders of President Rajapaksa and one can be doubly certain that he will not only rebuild the lost development infrastructure, but also ensure that anything and everything that is required for alleviating poverty, creating jobs and production will be done.

(Full details on how the people suffered due to the abolition of the development infrastructure are found in my book: How the IMF Ruined Sri Lanka and Alternative Programmes of Development , published by Godages, Colombo)

  1. De Costa Says:

    Garvin,
    Why does Rajapaksa has no guts to ask Sanath Jayasooriya ( the shameless ) to concentrate on politics( or get out of it ) not upsetingt Sri lanka’s chance in the cricket world cup ? He is creating havok and destabilizing the team. Isn’t it not abuse of power ?

  2. Sunil Vijaya Says:

    Refreshing article. The immediate concern is even Mahinda seen with Norwegians at UN summit! The very people who masterminded the destabilising of Sri Lanka needs to be kept at bay. Norwegians, or otherwise defined as CIA agents, failed in every endeavour on peace initiatives throughout the last decades. In fact closing ties with this country is the best move Mahinda can do rather than appearing with them on photo sessions. I wonder whether our leaders ever learn!

  3. jana Says:

    Abuse of power and disenfranchisement of Sri Lankans has been the policy of all presidents who hide behind the clause in the constitution that they cannot be prosecuted for their actions. No one is accountable in this unfortunate country. Appointment of incompetant poltical officials to high positions whose main action is to embezzle the wealth of the country and push it more and more into debt is the official policy. Sycophancy and blind obedience is all that is expected of this political class. No President has been an exception.

  4. Nihal Fernando Says:

    But whatever said and done President Mahinda Rajapkasa is somewhat better than all the past Presidents. Without trying to be a good Samaritan or a hypocrite I would say if I were the President or even a minister of Parliament I would help my relatives and friends who were capable of handling responsible jobs by offering appointments. Can anybody name a Mr Clean in the field of politics anywhere in the world? Who is going to simply wash the hand after plucking a honeycomb without licking the hand?

  5. ranjit Says:

    Garvin what you wrote everything was true but unfortunately there are some who dosent agree and like what you said because they are out of touch of our country maybe by living outside the country.They dont like to admit about the accomplishments of this great president. You see how he was welcomed in UN by world leaders and the first lady too.We all should be proud of our President.Have you seen before any of our leadersbeen welcome like this? I agree with Nihal you should give the credit to all Rajapaksas including his brothers for making us proud to be a Sri Lankan.Now everyone respect our country not like when those Bonny and Clyde ( Ranil & Chandrika) were ruling giving the enemy everything they asked for. Atleast this man has guts and a vision for our country not like those traitors Ranil & the pots & pans clan who say Yes Sir No Sir to their white masters.

  6. babaloo Says:

    Mahinda Rajapakse’s task of abolishing democracy in Sri Lanka has been greatly enabled by cowards and arse lickers who want nothing but to enjoy the scraps the President is throwing at them. No wonder Sri Lanka is cursed. This was a great opportunity, after the war, for a new beginning. However, people who have no sense of patriotism, sacrifice, reconciliation and forgiveness, have given Mahinda Rajapakse all the power he wants to become the next despot of Sri Lanka. Good luck trying to regain power from the Rajapakse clan. I don’t need a Ph.D to tell me that just because JR and Premadasa did something wrong, that Mahinda only has to do less wrong. Is this what we expect from our leaders? Of course, nobody gives a damn about the welfare of the country. Everybody wants to line their own pockets and lick the behinds of their leaders and be in their good books. This seems to be the Sri Lankan manifesto, while at the same time considering themselves to be good buddhists. What nonsense!!!!!!!!!

  7. Lorenzo Says:

    babaloo,

    Good to hear that your brand of people have no future in SL. Sri Lanka is blessed. Everywhere you people go it is cursed for you people. The golden opportunity after the war is not about satisfying racist homeland nonsense of a few. It is about strengthening the unitary status of the country, developing the national economy at the expense of racist homelands and scr*wing racist homeland seekers further. If that happens Sri Lanka is doing well. If it does not happen then there is a problem. Tamil Elam is the most cursed. Go there (where you consider Tamil Elam was) and see for yourself.

  8. jana Says:

    Sir John was right. Sri Lankans are a group of ass lickers only the asses change. When JR was president it was all about the cunning fox who was going to develop the country but see where his policies have led the country to. Sycophancy is the vogue of the Lotus eaters. It is history repeating. A country that does not have an intelligensia to criticaly analyse the policies of its Leaders will never prosper.This time you may not have a country to even grieve.

  9. Dr.K Says:

    Dear Garvin

    What you have said is all correct.

    But after I read some comments made by some of the readers I feel sorry about them that they have not yet understood the vision of MR, the president.

    I noted the following comment as an example but there are many similar comments to be noted
    “The immediate concern is even Mahinda seen with Norwegians at UN summit! The very people who masterminded the destabilising of Sri Lanka needs to be kept at bay. Norwegians, or otherwise defined as CIA agents, failed in every endeavour on peace initiatives throughout the last decades. In fact closing ties with this country is the best move Mahinda can do rather than appearing with them on photo sessions. I wonder whether our leaders ever learn!”

    I should say MR’s vision is not that childish. My understanding is that it’s far better than many leading politicians in the world. One day he would get those Norwegians to support him to build the country.

  10. Dr.K Says:

    I should say MR’s vision is not that childish. It’s far better than that of many leading politicians in the world. One day he would get those Norwegians to support him to build the country.

  11. ranjit Says:

    Babaloo or babilo who ever it is nobody is licking anybody’s asses.Cowards like you hiding without giving your good name isnt worth the slipper the president wearing when he goes for a walk. Go around the country and see what this guy has done and what he is going to do without barking like stray dogs. You cowards were always find something to blame MR what about Ranil,Somawansa,Anura Kumara,Mangala do you think they can do better? Blame game is the only thing you opposition goons can do instead why not be part of the game and play like a gentleman. How much or how many years you bark MR will be there till 2022 by that time Ranil and his clan of traitors will be nowhere. Dont worry about Norwegians MR knows to tackle any mother’s son specially the whites not like Ranil Yes Sir No Sir sucker.

  12. Fran Diaz Says:

    Many thanks to Garvin Karunaratne for his enlightening articles.
    I might add that India leaned toward her geopolitical protector, Russia, at the time JRJ was in power, and looked to protecting
    the interests of Russia during her time with the Cold War with America. Therefore, the heavy handed attitude toward Lanka.

    President Rajapakse believes in Lanka being a Non-Aligned Nation, and he applies this in practice.

    We all totally agree that the 13A should be removed from the Constitution.

  13. babaloo Says:

    Hey Ranjit:

    Wow! Looks like Mahinda’s arse tastes that good, eh! Eat shit, bootlicker!!!!!!!!

  14. Fran Diaz Says:

    13-A was signed in by JRJ & Cabinet under duress. Acts done under duress are illegal. Therefore, 13-A is illegal and should be removed from the Sri Lanka Constitution.

  15. Nihal Fernando Says:

    babaloo [Wow! Looks like Mahinda’s arse tastes that good, eh! Eat shit, bootlicker!!!!!!!!]

    babaloo, please do not make this reputed forum a public toilet. Talk sense without babbling like an old tart

  16. Sri Rohana Says:

    Ranjith, no doubt babaloo is a tamilnadian refugee with Sri Lanka passport. Seems he has a grudge with Hon. President Mahinda, who sent babaloo’s sun god, terrorist murderer megalomaniac velupillai to the hell. His attitudes are very much similar to velupillai’s tamil terrorists group. They knew only to kill or eliminate those who had other opinions. Since babaloo cannot do it in web he come up with filth. Those comments are good for the primitive tamil society. Civilized Sinhala web forum disgusted with his low quality comments.

  17. ranjit Says:

    Bravo! Nihal & SRI Rohana thanks for showing your courage and understanding. Baboons like Babloo have to eat his own shit one day because those kind of ass lickers dont have a place in our homeland. We will never allow those shit dogs to even breathe fresh air in our country.They have to hide under the petty coat of their white masters who gave refuge in their countries. Babloo or Baboon dont make the Lankaweb Forum dirty by writing third grade stuff.It’s only for the people who understand how to play a fair game not for terrorists lik you. Go and lick the Ass of Ranil your L.T.T.E friend who helped people like you to kill Sinhalese. No place for cowards and traitors anymore in my land. I cannot stick your smell babloo.

  18. A. Sooriarachi Says:

    Agree with Fran Diaz that 13A has no validity as it was passed under duress with the threat of India annexing part of SriLanka looming large and JRJ caving in. This sinister plan of India is clearly seen today from their attempt to divide the nation by talking about protecting a section of SriLankan citizens, the Tamils. We must leave aside party politics and salute MR for being a courageous and patriotic President, unlike JRJ and CBK.

  19. Sri Rohana Says:

    Ranjith, those tamil bogus refugees who came from very rural remote villages of north and east like Killinochichi or Mannar or Vakarai got some opportunity to go abroad with the help of tamil human smuggling gangsters. Before they go abroad they were in their villages most didn’t have toilets even. For the call of the nature they had to go to the nearest bush or beaches. Probably they must have seen new toilets only in the Colombo Airport before take the flights. Now those primitive tamilnadians try to be too smart. Bloody beedi smokers got a chance to smoke Benson think that they are in haven.

    Babaloo’s tamils are very happy to clean white fallas toilets with both hands isn’t. That’s the best-known job for tamils. Can’t Babaloo remember British invaders brought tamil sakkilys to Sri Lanka to empty and clean their toilet buckets. Can’t Babaloo remember in every municipal council area tamils carried out the toilet buckets on their shoulders. As a human I respect tamil sakkilys but if babaloo tries to be smart we have to remind him that who lived with shit. Don’t forget the past babaloo.

    Babaloo don’t insult our President. Sinhala majority elected him. So respect the wish of majority, that’s the democracy. If you don’t like him you can vote for any tamilnadu origin Sampandan or Karupaiya or Suppiyah but they have to get the majority votes to become our president. But if you want to die like a pig as your sun god velupillai at nanthikadal lagoon start another eelam war with white agents. Our war heroes are ready babaloo.
    My apology to respectable educated Sinhala forum if you all get offended with my reply to tamil racist babaloo. But I thought we have to address babaloo the language he understands.

  20. jana Says:

    When this site should be used to add a serious discussion on the problems of SL and of governance this site is used by its contributers for abuse and sycophancy. It is time we all have a civilised discussion for instance the pros and cons of the Presidents entourage to the UN of over a 100 spending millions of Dollars at the same time increasing the price of Bread to the poor,or the loss of billions of dollars in the hedge fund debacle in the petroleum corporation. the examples have no end. Sycophancy is not going to help to develop this unfortunate country unless these basic issues are addressed. This site dissappoints me . If this is a reflection of the altitude of the general populace God save us all.

  21. ranjit Says:

    Sri R. I am glad you remind babloo the ass licker about their ancestors. That’s great. we didnt start this ass licking contest except Babloo and Jana the great lovers of the whites. Jana said that Sri Lankans were a group of Ass Lickers.Both of these Sakkiliyas dosent have any love for the country they were born. Why they got worked up so much for Garvin’s comment like that? We must salute the Sinhala heros for rescuing the country from ruthless murderers and their cahoots like Babloo and Jana the Tamil toilet cleaners. Atleast we had some fun because of these goons.Sorry for using these kind of words in our favourite forum.We cannot stay back when stupids condems our beloved country and our leaders. Better stay where ever you are dont come to our land and shit again or dream to make trouble. The great Sinhala nation is ready under the leadership of our great President MR. OUR country maybe small in size but our hearts are big and strong so take care.

  22. Sajith Says:

    Sri Rohana,

    Don’t make racist remarks against Tamils. Babaloo is an idiot.

  23. jana Says:

    Rangith, You certainly are an ass licker. If not answer the question as to why millions are being spent on a trip to the UN by MR your hero when at the same time he increases the price of bread for the poor. It is guys like you who are the bain of Sri Lanka. All humans must have some thing called morality .

  24. Sri Rohana Says:

    Sajith please read Babaloo’s 26th September comments on Ranjith. It is the most disgusted, rude and vulgar comment I ever seen in this forum. So I replied him with the language he understand. “Every action has an equal or opposite reaction”
