Two news items on Karunanayake with a few questions
Posted on January 15th, 2015

H. L. D. Mahindapala

Sri Lankans are now living in the very early days of the promised ideal country” which, according to the Manifesto of Maithripala Sirisena – Ranil Wickremesinghe – Champika Ranawake government, will be created within six years.

The attention of the readers is drawn to the following two edited news items to indicate the early trends of this path-breaking political  journey. Please note the date January 29” which is most relevant to both news items.

 News Item 1: The Daily Mirror (January 13, 2015) : The Mini-Budget of the new Government’s 100-day programme will be presented in Parliament on January 29 with a relief package for the people as promised in the run-up to the presidential election, Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake said today.

After assuming duties at his office at the Government Treasury complex yesterday, the minister said the mini budget would also contain proposals to reduce prices on 10 essential commodities including fuel.

The people gave a mandate to this government to bring about a palpable change in the system of governance and for a stable economic which was drifting aimlessly. ….

The minister said the Maithripala administration was not looking at minimising corruption but at eliminating it fully.

Therefore, acts such bribery, obtaining huge commissions between 20% and 50% and other forms of corruption will not be tolerated under any circumstance. Corrupt officials will be severely dealt with irrespective of their political affiliation and status. Officials need not be subservient to anyone under this administration,” he said.

We criticised the Rajapaksa regime while in the opposition and now it is our turn to practice what we preached,” the minister said. See more at: http://www.dailymirror.lk/61181/mini-budget-on-jan-29#sthash.dFAzGAK2.dpuf

News Item 2:  Ceylon Today (November 14, 2014): It was alleged in the Colombo High Court yesterday (13) that United National Party (UNP) MP Ravi Karunanayake had actively facilitated the transfer of Rs 390 million to Sri Lanka,…

by infamous Sri Lankan American and former hedge fund manager and billionaire, Raj Rajaratnam. It was alleged that Karunanayake was directly involved in this fraud and the exchange controller had questioned him on three occasions about it.

The former Additional Exchange Controller revealed that three million US dollars were received by a local private bank and Ravi Karunanayake intervened to collect the funds.

This came to light during cross examination of the former Central Bank Additional Exchange Controller, Kumara Perera, by Senior State Counsel Dileepa Peiris.

The case was taken up before the Colombo High Court Judge Devika Livera De Tennekoon.
The case was postponed until 29 January 2015, on which date the accused were ordered to be present in Court.

 As stated earlier, what is  important is the date, January 29, 2015. Obviously, the Finance Minister, Karunanayake, can’t be present in Parliament to present his mini-budget on January 29 and simultaneously be at the High Court to face the charges against him.

The fixing of one date for two events raises a few questions:

Q 1: Why was January 29 fixed as the date to present the mini-budget in Parliament when Karunanayake knew that he was due to appear in Court to face charges on that very day?

Q2: What is so special about January 29? Why not January 28? Or 30?

Q 3: Is this a ruse to get a postponement of the trial?

Q4: Is the inevitable postponement a sign of things to come?

Q5: Is this a crafty tactic to interfere with the course of justice?

Q6: Will there be attempts to cover-up the case?

Q7: As some of the key departments handling this case (example: Exchange Control) come under the Finance Ministry will there be pressure brought to manipulate/cook the evidence in courts?  Remember, some  of the files related to the administration of the CWE under Karunanayake went up in smoke?

Q8: Is this going to be the first of many cases that are likely to recur in due course to undermine the independence of the judiciary?

Q9: More importantly, why was Karunanayake facing serious financial irregularities in the High Court appointed as Finance Minister of the  promised ideal country” of My-3-pala-naya?

Q10: In appointing Karunanayake as Finance Minister – the epicenter of corruption and mismanagement – was due consideration given to his known record in the private and public sectors?

Q11: As one  of the Vice-Presidents of IDU can Ranil Wickremesinghe justify his nomination of Karunanayake to be the finance minister by giving another example of an accused facing serious financial irregularities in courts appointed as finance minister?

Q12: Last but not  the least, why did President Maithripala Sirisena appoint Karunanayake as his finance minister when it was public knowledge that he was facing charges in courts? Is this a good start for his six-year journey to build the ideal country”?

    Writing to lankacnews, Gammanpila insists that it is impossible for My3 to implement his 100 day program in full without increasing taxes or borrowing or printing more money pushing towards hyper inflation era. He also added that what is being implemented right now is not ‘yahapalanaya’ but threats and fear mongering to rid of the opponents – he and his family as well. In his article Gammanpila wrote: “මේ වෙන විට පිවිතුරු හෙළ උරුමයේ දේශපාලන කටයුතු අතඇරලා සතියක් ඇතුළත රටෙන් පිට නොවුනොත් මගේ දරු දෙදෙනාත් මාවත් මරාදමන බවට මගේ බිරිඳට තර්ජනාත්මක දුරකතන ඇමතුමක් ලැබුණා. අපි මේ පිළිබඳව දැනටමත් පොලීසියට පැමිණිලි කරලා තියෙන්නේ. අපි විශ්වාස කරනවා මේ පිළිබඳ යහපාලනය පිළිබඳ කතා කළ නායකයින් කතා කරයි කියලා.”

    BREAKING NEWS – My3 gets parliamentary majority with 114 seats and MR LOSES the parliament.

    Shashindra Rajapaksha also LOST his chief minister post in Uva.

    ONLY Chamal Rajapaksha is left as speaker.

    What a disaster.

  5. Vimutti Says:

    >>>Q9: More importantly, why was Karunanayake facing serious financial irregularities in the High Court appointed as Finance Minister of the promised ideal country” of My-3-pala-naya?<<<

    This is indeed an important question that I am sure will be played over, and over, and over again to the voter in April's election.

  6. mjaya Says:

    The people who voted for MY3 better enjoy the last days of Sathosa.

    Everything is going full circle.

    Ruin Sathosa, sell it, MR rebuilds it from scratch, after that ruin it again!!!

    Now that is Yahapalana(TM) Magic!!!

  7. Marco Says:

    Without wishing to defend Ravi Karunanayake actions in relation to Exchange Control violations, if this article was written by any one else other than HLDM one could seriously take note.

    It would have brought a semblance of credibility had the author also mentioned that the previous Treasury Secretary was an official found to be unworthy to hold public office by the Courts.

    The process of law should take its course with regard to Ravi K.
    The author fails to mention that this relates to a technical violation of the Exchange Control law in respect of inward remittance of foreign exchange and not a serious irregularity, fraud or insider dealing etc.
    Ravi K lawyers have already produced a letter from the Central Bank (Exchange Control) with respect to the remittance albeit this clearance should have been obtained prior to the inward remittance.

    If the author is saying that these funds were laundered, illegal, drug money or used for terrorist activities then thats a different matter altogether. I do not see such accusations.

    Finally, nice try HLDM, you need to sharpen your pencil a bit more.

  8. dingiri bandara Says:

    Ravi as Finance Minister. “QUIS CUSTODIET IPSOS CUSTEDOS” ” WHO WILL GUARD THE GUARDS.
    Seeing the massive luxury house built in the county by politicians, government employees,police officers and members of the armed services and children of most study abroad, one wonders where the money came from.

  9. Wickrama Says:

    Marco,

    It should not matter who the author is if the facts are true.

    Author need not mention untrustworthiness of others to “balance” the credibility.

    390 million is not a small amount to be excused as a “technical violation”. Besides it is not coming from a relative or a friend of RK, but from a notorious crook and an LTTE supporter. The mystery is what must have been the purpose of that remittance? Facilitating Regime Change??

    DISASTER FOR WHOM? Niit for YOU who AGITATED & PROPAGANDIZED VOCIFEROUSLY to get My3 Elected!

    So you, as a Pseudo-Patriot should CELEBRATE! So, GO CELEBRATE! Don’t be a HYPOCRITE!

    New civilian governor appointed to Northern Province of Sri Lanka

    ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

    Jan 13, Colombo: The Sri Lankan government has appointed a non-military civil servant as the Governor of the Tamil-dominated Northern Province.

    A prominent Sri Lankan diplomat and former Foreign Secretary H. M. G. S. Palihakkara has been appointed as the Governor of the Northern Province, sources said.

    Palihakkara will replace Governor G.A. Chandrasiri who was a retired major general of Sri Lanka Army and former Commander Security Forces Headquarters – Jaffna.

    Chandrasiri, who was reappointed as governor in 2014 by former President Mahinda Rajapaksa, was reportedly at loggerheads with the Northern Province Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran.

    Palihakkara had served as Sri Lankan Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the United Nations in Geneva, and represented Sri Lanka at the UN Commission on Human Rights, UN Conference on Trade and Development and the Conference on Disarmament.

    Meanwhile, Sri Lankan High Commissioner to Canada Chitranganee Wagiswara has been appointed as the Secretary to the Foreign Affairs Ministry.

  12. Marco Says:

    Wickrama,
    Naturally the author was blind to more recent corruption cases.

    All the facts have not been reported for readers to have an informed view.
    The violation took place pre 2009 and the funds i believe was used to acquire Union Bank shares and other listed investments overseen by an International firm of Accountants in Colombo.
    I believe RK was the business contact in Colombo.
    If we are to presume all funds from Raj Rajaratnam was “dirty” money (it is a reasonable assumption) then one ought to look at the large donations to Charities and Tsunami Funds made by RR. We go into the realms of absurdity

    If the source of funds was through illegal means and laundered through Standard Bank & Union Bank then i would seriously investigate.

    I suggest you do your own research and form an opinion. Suggest you start with RK own website.

  13. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:

    ANANDA !! Iam with you on what you have reflected. ” WHAT A DISASTER ” is seething with sarcasm. There was a time Lorenzo and I were talking about the Military taking over. Not because we hated Mahinda, but we did not approve of his henchaiyas Corruption. Lorenzo was named as the Minister of Defence, and me, as the Secretary of Defence. Mahinda was Lorenzos IDOL one time. So was mine. So lord Buddha said, “”All things are transient, nothing is permanent “” So, we can change our minds. That does not mean that we should say things laced with sarcasm to the fallen. It will be tantamount to ridiculing the Disabled Ranaviruvoes. Let us not continue to say “”””WHAT A DISASTER “”””Let the people who win go about their business, as everybody is watching.

  14. Lorenzo Says:

    Ananda,

    Still you are in the DENIAL phase. Keep going.

  15. Lorenzo Says:

    Remember Chris Nonis? He will be reappointed as HC.

    President My3 has recommended CN to be reappointed as HC. VERY GOOD.

    And SF will be given his titles, a pardon and a minister post.

    Sanath J, Keheliya, etc. have joined My3.

    Maithri wewa!

  16. SenaD Says:

    According to lakbima.lk MR has agreed to offer the chaimanship of SLFP to the president to stop the break up of the SLFP.

    When the ex-president got the 18th amendment passed and not start cleaning up the mess, I was unable to figure out what he was doing. I said he is either going senile or playing a complex 3 dimensional chess game.

    It was Lorenzo, I think, who said neither, he is scared of the UNHRC. But now I can see that he was that and also losing his prowess in political maneuverings, otherwise how could he have lost the knack he had to assess the pulse of the people and let all the rouges and his son making all kinds of scenes in his name?

    I feel sorry for his predicament like when SF lost everything.

    Entropy increases even if worked hard to keep it down leading to eventual disintegration, just as Thathagatha Buddha postulated the same in a different way more than 2 millennia before.

  17. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:

    LORENZO !! We have all been friends on this lanka web. Please refrain from saying things to warrant antagonism. Let us keep our friendship.

    TWO TEAMS played a match. One team WON. The other LOST. So lets go home.

  18. SenaD Says:

    The Island says ‘MS-MR taks soon’ which is contradicting what appeared in lakbima.lk!.

  19. douglas Says:

    Mr. Mahindapala: Now you have become a “Reporter”. These two items you “reported” above were know to us in Sri Lanka much before you, and that reminds me of the still functioning “TUBE LIGHT” in my ancestral home where I live.

  20. Lorenzo Says:

    SW,

    Agree. Applies to EVERYONE.

  21. Lorenzo Says:

    MR will meet president My3 on 15th to extend his support and the appeal to save the SLFP. He should not PLAY GAMES. MR should FULLY GIVE UP the SLFP.

    President My3 has been the SLFP GS for decades. He cannot harm it.

    My3 can form a national government with SLFP and UNP with more than 2/3.

    MR should give up ALL his claims to SLFP leadership. Lets save the party from CBK and MR (2 PAST presidents).

  22. Nanda Says:

    MR is planning to capture power by becoming prime minister with executive powers newly transferred.
    HE must be made to retire using his own cruel tactics, not using “Nahiverena Verani” for this one only. He can start loving kindness after the enemy is defeated, just like Asoka .

  23. Nanda Says:

    My dear SW is not talking to me , that is OK much more importantly he is fully cured. I remember he posted a mosquito killing method and I gave him some advice which may not be to his liking.

  24. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:

    NANDA !! Oh Dear ! I did not have the occasion to talk to you with all this drama on. No Iam not fully cured, but I do not have the Neuro pain because Iam under a strong dosage of a drug. Yes, I do remember posting a Mosquito destroying method, but I cannot remember what you stated. Anyone can give additional suggestion to my article, and I do not have to be unfriendly. Be assured of my Web Friendship.

  25. Nanda Says:

    Sorry to hear that. When will you be getting out of pain without drugs ?

  26. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:

    NANDA !! I nee $20,000.00 for that at a Spine Laser Hospital in Tampa. Poor people have to suffer pain. Rich people get over with ease. Iam buying lottery tickets. That is the only hope.

  27. jay-ran Says:

    Theseare some of My3’s yahapalanaya:
    1) y3’s brother’s hotel on the bank of Parakrama Samudraya was given illegally to have the ground floor a safe place from water BY LOWERING THE WATER LEVEL BY 1.5 Ft DEPRIVING MANY THOUSANDS OF FARMING LAND FOR INNOCENT FARMERS!
    2) Ordinary Rice Millers were prevented from buying rice harvest from the Poor Farmers at a reasonable price and My3’s brother by thugery purchased Rice at his own price!!
    3) Another brother of My3, dominated the kalugal industry by forcefully preventing ordinary people doing that aND ALSO AQUARING A hISTORICAL cAVE WHICH HAD THE REMAINS OF A KING(ISUPPOSE)!!!
    4) Another brother of My3 forcefully engaged in collecting sand preventing others from that work to earn a buck!!!!
    5)THE LATEST,IT WAS PRESIDENT MAHINDA RAJAPAKSE AND THE LADY WHO INVITED THE POPE? BUT THIS IDIOPT MY3 DID NOT HAVE THE GREATFULLNES TO INVITE MR & THE FAMILY FOR THE BIG EVENT!!!!!

    THIS IS YAHAPALANAYA!!!!!!

  28. jay-ran Says:

    YAHAPALANAYA OF MY3,ANOTHER IMPORTANT ADMISSION BY RANIL WICKREMASINGHE!!
    Mr Ranil Wickremasinghe in his speech after assuming dities as the PM,THANKED THE FORMER PRESIDENT M R FOR ELIMINATING THE TERRORIST MENACE IN SRI LANKA,WHICH STATEMENT IS PRAISE WORTHY WITH ALL HIS WEAKNESSESS!!!

  29. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:

    jay-ran !!! YES, I FULLY AGREE. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN AN ACT OF STATESMANSHIP, IF PRESIDENT MAITHREPALA INVITED EX-PRESIDENT MAHINDA TO PAY HIS RESPECTS TO THE VENERATED POPE. THAT WAS A SAD OMISSION. NOTHING WOULD HAVE BEEN LOST. The Pope should have inquired after him. Where is my Dear Friend Mahinda ????

    Lowering water level by 3 feet.

    Ranil has acted like a gentleman, no doubt.

  30. Wickrama Says:

    Marco,

    “I suggest you do your own research and form an opinion. Suggest you start with RK own website.”

    Sure, that will be the ideal way, no doubt. !!
    Horage ammagen nethuwa HORAGENma pena ahanna !!

  31. Lorenzo Says:

    Jay-ran,

    Sand, kalugal, rivers and paddy are TOO SMALL for the brothers of a different family!

    They deal in MIG jets, highways, ports, banks, etc.

    People have selected the lesser evil.

  32. Mr. Bernard Wijeyasingha Says:

    If this new government by Sirisena starts to purge the military, the police force, and or the Buddhist Sanga then please take my advice and have a military coup with the support of the Buddhist Sanga. A similar relationship exists in Myanmar. Keep in mind that the movement for Elam started and continued under Democratically elected governments. Democracy is not a panacea for all problems and least of all if it compromises the nation. it would be better to see a Buddhist theocracy backed by the military than to see Sri Lanka systematically been taken over by India and divided within.

  33. Mr. Bernard Wijeyasingha Says:

    Please Google this: “Pentagon Plans to Shrink Army to Pre-World War II Level”

    Army Fires Officers After Ordering Them to Move

    The Army last week began notifying about 1,100 captains that they will be purged from the ranks. The same fate is awaiting about 500 majors, who beginning this week will be told their active-duty careers are over. They’re among nearly 2,500 officers and NCOs who will be involuntarily separated this year as part of an ongoing drawdown of forces.
    After growing in size to 570,000 soldiers in 2008 at the height of the war in Iraq, the Army has less than 520,000 soldiers today and is on pace to shrink to 490,000 soldiers by next year. It’s bracing for even further contraction driven by automatic budget cuts known as sequestration.
    The Pentagon’s proposed budget for fiscal 2015, which begins Oct. 1, calls for the service’s headcount to decrease to 440,000 to 450,000 soldiers by fiscal 2017. If sequestration remains in effect, the number may fall to as low as 420,000 soldiers – tens of thousands less than what the Army’s top officer, Gen. Raymond Odierno, said is needed to adequately respond to conflicts around the world.

    Army to cut up to 4,000 captains and majors
    Washington Times ^ | 12/17/13 | Douglas Ernst
    Posted on 12/17/2013, 8:25:20 PM by Nachum

    The U.S. Army is sending roughly 19,000 active-duty captains and majors to a screening board for early separation this spring, the Army Times reported. Up to 20 percent of those screened — approximately 3,800 officers — could be scheduled to leave the service by the Officer Separation Board and Enhanced Selective Early Retirement Board. Officers with fewer than 18 years of federal active service will have their screening process done by OSB, and those with more than 18 years of service will see the E-SERB, according to the Army Times. “The Army’s drawdown plan is a balanced approach while maintaining

    OBAMA HAD NO REASON TO CUT THE US MILITARY
    SIRISENA MUST PURGE THE MILITARY OF THOSE WHO ARE STILL LOYAL TO RAJAPAKSE
    AND AVOID A POSSIBLE COUP.

    I HOPE I AM WRONG BUT I FEAR THERE IS TOO MUCH IN STAKE FOR SIRISENA NOT TO DO THIS.

  34. Nanda Says:

    Susantha,
    I only work part time now but would like to contribute something. (serious and will let you know later)
    But a new super rich in the USA now. You supported him dearly. Give him a call ( joke only)

  35. Ananda-USA Says:

    Douglas said “It is very disturbing to hear this type of voting analysis.”

    But why, douglas, WHY do you say that?

    Don’t you like to hear the TRUTH about who ganged up on President Mahinda Rajapaksa and the majority Sinhala Buddhist community of Sri Lanka to defeat the war-winning most-visionary government of Sri Lanka since that of Parakrabahu the Great?

    This MAP presented by Nalin De Silva CLEARLY DISPLAYS what I published in my FIRST POST-ELECTION COMMENT at LankaWeb: The Tamils, the Muslims, and the Christians joined hands to DEFEAT President Mahinda Rajapaksa and the majority Sinhala Buddhist community, aided and abetted by some Sinhala Buddhist TRAITORS, and funded by the Western Neocolonialist powers and the Tamil Diaspora.

    FACTS are FACTS … we MUST RECOGNIZE them as such, it is not COMMUNAL demagogery to point out the OBVIOUS!

    CONCLUSIONS founded on FACTS are NECESSARY to enable PATRIOTS to GIRD UP OUR LOINS TO DEAL WITH IT, and DEFEND, PROTECT and PRESERVE Mother Lanka in the future!

    If we remain IGNORANT like cows chewing their cud, or HIDE OUR HEADS IN THE SAND like ostriches REFUSING to ACKNOWLEDGE the FACTS, then Sri Lanka will not survive as the ONLY REFUGE of the Sinhala Buddhist as their enemies move to SUBJUGATE them!

    Yes Indeed, Sri Lanka should be ONE Nation of ONE People sharing ONE DESTINY, but not by EXCLUDING and SUBJUGATING the majority Sinhala Buddhist community, REJECTING integration into one Nation of ONE people sharing ONE DESTINY, and DISREGARDING the MOVES of Separatists to CONFOUND that GOAL and SUBJUGATE the Sinhala Buddhist Community!

    What this ELECTION showed BEYOND ALL REASONABLE DOUBT is that the Separatists WILL TRY THEIR UTMOST to gain their Eelamist and Salafist ETHNO-RELIGIOUS BANTUSTANS in Sri Lanka if given any opportunity to do so.

    This Election has REVERSED the course of the Nation towards an INTEGRATED SOCIETY, and will usher in a DECADE of CIVIL COMMUNAL STRIFE and ARRESTED GROWTH. The Western Neocolonialists have succeeded in doing that through REGIME CHANGE in Sri Lanka as they had done recently in many other countries destroying them completely.

    In the END, I have NO DOUBT that the PATRIOTS will WIN, but EVERY COMMUNITY WILL SUFFER its CONSEQUENCES in the interim!

    The ONLY WINNERS who will NOT SUFFER ANY SUBSTANTIAL PAIN are the Foreign Powers who SPONSORED this REGIME CHANGE as a central thrust in their CHINA CONTAINMENT Policy.

    IN THE END, when those Sinhala Buddhists who turned TRAITOR come to their SENSES, they too will support Mahinda Rajapaksa and the Western Meddlers will LOSE OUT COMPLETELY, as they had in Libya, Egypt, Iraq, Syria and ELSEWHERE in the WORLD, and will be EJECTED COMPLETELY from Sri Lanka.

    When that day comes to pass, those who REFUSED TO BELIEVE and ACCEPT President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s MAGNANIMOUS OFFER that there are only TWO KINDS OF Sri Lankan citizens: Those who LOVE Sri Lanka and Those who don’t, will RUE THE DAY they REJECTED IT. Their INGRATITUDE and TREACHERY will NOT BE FORGOTTEN for a century, and they are UNLIKELY EVER TO BE OFFERED SUCH GENEROUS TERMS AGAIN!

    The REPEALING of the 13th Amendment will be FIRST ACT on the NEW AGENDA of the PATRIOTS when they returned to POWER!

    Let the CONNIVERS & PLOTTERS party NOW while the PATRIOTS gather their strength ONCE AGAIN to MAN THE RAMPARTS, BLOCK the PASSES, and RISE to DEFEND and PROTECT Mother Lanka as our warrior forefathers did yesterday!

    I ALREADY hear the trumpets and flutes waling, and war drums throbbing, in the distance, the sounds wafting over the hills, and through the glades of Lanka, calling the always faithful PATRIOTS to rally around to defend our Motherland …. once again!

  36. Lorenzo Says:

    BW,

    “If this new government by Sirisena starts to purge the military, the police force, and or the Buddhist Sanga then please take my advice and have a military coup with the support of the Buddhist Sanga.”

    AGREE.

    I said the same thing when MR was doing bad.

    But lets give My3 time. He will be DUMB to dismantle the army.

  37. Ananda-USA Says:

    Lorenzo said “Still you are in the DENIAL phase. Keep going.”

    Ah, Yes … the DENIAL phase, INDEED!

    When one REFUSES to BETRAY those who saved and developed the Motherland restoring the pride of each and every Sri Lankan, as no other Government had ever done, to please assorted separatists, anti-nationals, power hungry politicians, failed politicians pursuing personal vendettas, and Western REGIME CHANGE artistes pursuing their own agendas, one is DEEMED to be languishing in the “DENIAL” phase!

    If that is what constitutes being enmeshed in the DENIAL phase, then I am proud to be in DENIAL!

    But CLEARLY, you seem to have no such emotional DILEMMA, suppressing both your CONSCIENCE and your HONOUR with EASE!

    Your devious rationalization of your metamorphosis, however, BEGGARS BELIEF!

  38. Nimal Says:

    People mustn’t take law into their hands and attack and threaten the politicians of the former regime. Police must take stern action to stop and prosecute the thugs. It’s not cricket and that wouldn’t have happen in Uk and we must have a colonial type regime where one respect the opponent.
    Good old days when we boxed the opponent out or win a rugger mutch,we say to the opponent BLNT(better luck next time),sadly we have many PLEBS in the country.PLEB means, people of the low educational background, Amen.What a great culture the colonials left us? Sadly the hypocrites in the country cheat us, rob us and con us with a fake lifestyle in SL and go and live a double life in the West, just or worse than the colonials.
    it’s our Karma to go through this agony, regime after regime and no end in sight for our humble and equally stupid people..

  39. stanley perera Says:

    Two former and the incumbant President are together ripping us off. Malaka two Malaka one are jountly ripping us off. Elephant in tie and coat and Matara domba are jointly ripping us off.Known deviland the unknown devil are together eating the pie. I cannot see a yasapalanaya with these mob. Ranil and Sirisena’s down fall begings with the the elephant in tie and coat. What a shame. If ranil or sirisena didnot get rid of tie and coat aliya, I think their days numbered. I know JVP in hundred days will become the government or the opposition. Douglas Devananda supporting Sirisena’s 100 day plan is also not going look good as he is the biggest thugin Jaffna. Sirisena has allowed Mahipla Maha Hora leave the country. God save my Sri Lanka. One thief goes and another thief comes in. I do not know why JVP is silent on Maha mudal hora.

  40. Mr. Bernard Wijeyasingha Says:

    Lorenzo: Sirisena will change the military for the simple reason that Rajapakse came into power because he promised to end the war using that same military.
    When Rajapakse defeated the Tamil Tigers (using the existing military) and changed the constitution so he can have more powers the military supported him, Gotabaya supported him.
    Only the TNA, Chennai, the Congress party in New Delhi and the UNHRC WENT AGAINST RAJAPAKSE AND THE MILTARY.

    Sirisena cannot run a government knowing that some generals are still supporting Rajapakse. Some in the Buddhist Sanga are supporting the Sinhalese nationalist movement. His party was built on elements outside of this

    in order for him to run this government he has to rid these elements or live with the possibility they will turn on him. That is what I base my guess (and I mean guess) on. this also applies to the SIS who were crucial in that war and a crucial element of the “power” of Rajapakse.

    BW,
    Please stop this imagination. Military will not be dismantled in Sri Lanka. Military will not be used to wash toiltes of Maha Raja and clean drains in Jaffna, so the number may reduce but will be stronger under SF.

    I’m not going to take sides here. Mahinda deserves his defeat as he disregarded the majority and served a proven ungrateful minority. But this coupled with other facts cast serious doubts on the validity of Sirisena’s election as president.

    The astronomical increase in the number of persons polled in the districts of Jaffna, Vanni, Batticaloa, Nuwara Eliya, Trincomalee and Digamadulla against 2010 indicates a large number of voters from these districts voted twice. Thanks to the efficient road network today it is possible for a person to vote in both Colombo and Jaffna districts. And in Vanni, Batticaloa, Nuwara Eliya, Trincomalee and Digamadulla districts too with ease. Each of these districts show an increase of 20% in polling compared to 2010 which is only 14% for other districts. It was unthinkable in the past!

    As a side note, it is really unfortunate Mahinda’s excellent road network defeated him, literally.

    As Sirisena won by only 155,436 additional votes (not the lead by the excess over 50%), it is possible to successfully challenge his election based on voter fraud in the districts of Jaffna, Vanni, Batticaloa, Nuwara Eliya, Trincomalee and Digamadulla.

    Those who support Mahinda and wish to see a ‘safe Sri Lanka’ (as they claim) must take up this challenge instead of verbally defending the former president. In my view, there is substantial merit in such a legal challenge. The current setting of the Supreme Court is also beneficial. If successful, the outcome will not be Mahinda getting elected as president. Instead the outcome will be a situation as if there was no election.

    What Dilrook suggests above is a very good idea! Some lights at the end of the tunnel. Hope some patriots will come forward to initiate this process without delay.

    Stanley,
    Appreciate very much if you could disclose what horrible action in the past was committed by “the Elephant in a tie”. I met a good friend who lived next door to him told me he is not that bad. But you may have a better idea.

  46. Nanda Says:

    Stanley,
    I don’t like these Maha Horas leaving the country. Now they have established power these Horas should be black listed. I also don’t like these secret agreements between Maha Raja and My Raja. These should be exposed. Your “Hora with the expensive pen” still carrying on with cheating public with his Lanka C News. This bugger must be brought to justice fast.

    Nanda,
    My point of argument is this: When a man is charged in a court of law on foreign exchange embesselment is proper for him to be appointed as the Minister of Finance. This proves my point that all these politicos are united and nothing ever will happen to the corrupt politicos. We are splitting our hair and wasting our valuble time and efforts in writing letters to the internet. One arsc hole leaves another arsc hole comes in. Thanks god I am not a politician.
