Video: UPFA to support Common Opposition’s 100-day programme
Posted on January 10th, 2015

Badulla District Parliamentarian Nimal Siripala de Silva said today UPFA assured its support in carrying out  the common opposition’s 100-day programme .

We will not obstruct the common opposition’s 100-day programme. We hope they will carry out it as promised. People voted for Maithripala Sirisena because they approved their programme. We also expect to help him in carrying out it in matters that we can approve of,” he said.

Mr. de Silva said they would accept the new Prime Minister even though there were some constitutional issues in appointing him. We are not going to raise any technical issues,” he added.

Parliamentarian Wimal Weerawansa said they would not allow the former president Mahinda Rajapaksa to stay at home and said they wanted him to engage in active politics.

He is still the SLFP president and would continue to engage in active politics. If anyone is trying to remove him, we will not let that happen,” he said.

    Bravo,Bravo,Bravo. I can breath properly now after I heard the sweet voices of Wimal Premachandra and Siripala who stood with the President in good times and in bad times. Corruption ,Corruption,Corruption that’s all those traitors can sing in chorus. So how about the Choura Regina.Is she a Saint? How about the Dental nurse Rajitha? Are they all Mr.Clean label? Don’t make us laugh.We are not stupid to believe these brainwashes,cowards and liars. Wait, the time will tell. God help those evil souls.

    Very good.

    There is no need to disrupt one another when trying to serve the nation. However, a corruption investigation will cause problems at this stage as the opposition is no cleaner. Sirisena has rightly pushed it beyond his 100 day plan. Otherwise nothing will happen when a witch hunt takes over good faith.

    Strengthen institutional controls to stop corruption first.

    Very encouraging show of political responsibility by the above personnel. It is time for Sri Lankan Politicians to discard that “confrontational” attitudes and come together to build the country.

    The “100 Day” Programme must be made the “LITMUS” test for the new administration. That is what the people have voted on and expect this team to deliver. It will show and prove to us how “responsible”; “accountable” and “transparent” this team is going to be in handling the Governmental Affairs. This “100 Day” programme will end with the dissolution of the Parliament on 23rd April, 2015.

    After the Parliament elections, there is an important Policy Statement made: “A National Government of all parties represented in Parliament will be established to govern for a period of at least two years”. Also it is followed with another itemized “100 Action Plan” initiatives, I believe, to be undertaken by that “National Government”.

    So it is imperative for all the Politicians to study this very carefully and make their “Assessments” now itself and start the “Decision Making Process” in readiness to answer this “Call” – ARE WE GOING TO BE A NATIONAL TEAM IN BUILDING THE COUNTRY, OR GOING IN DIFFERENT WAYS AS USUAL. This is the CHALLENGE for everyone.

    This is all good. But if My3 start listen to Western powers and Ranil, he will be in trouble.

    සමහර තිරිසනුන්ට පවා තමාට උපකාරයක් කලඅයෙකු මතකයේ රැඳේ. කළගුණ සලකයි. අවාසනාවට අපේ සමහර මිනිසුන්ට මතකයේ රැඳෙන්නේ යමෙකු තමාට උපකාරයක් කරනතෙක් පමණි.
    මහින්ද කළ වෙනස ඉතා කෙටි කාලයකින් අමතකවී ඔහු පාවා දෙමින් අලුත් වෙනසක් සොයන්නේ එබැවිනි.

    Already, just two days in to his rule,he has gone back on three of his pledges. First he appointed a prime minister against the constitution.Then he announced that the cabinet will be 30 and not 25 as pledged and the third, Infolanka news web site has been banned. Signs of ‘Yahapalanaya’ are encouraging to say the least.
