The inevitable SLFP counter-coup
Posted on February 14th, 2015

Political Watch Courtesy Island


Had the SLFP executive committee meeting held yesterday been mishandled, it could have resulted in a seismic shift in the political landscape of Sri Lanka. But President Maithripala Sirisena steered clear of making any contentious changes. He remains the party chairman, Anura Priyadarshana Yapa the general secretary, Susil Premajayantha has been appointed national organiser and S.B.Nawinna the treasurer. An Advisory Council made up of former presidents and prime ministers has also been set up. The SLFP has been retained in one piece. There was little room really, to make any contentious appointments as MPs like Vidura Wickramanayake were openly saying that if any ‘unsuitable’ persons who had not been in the SLFP for a long time were recommended for high positions in the party, he would contest such positions himself. Wickramanayake even said that Maithripala Sirisena was a ‘prisoner’ of the UNP.

Indeed any contentious recommendation for a top party slot may have motivated a flood of contenders to come forward for the various positions and Sirisena would not have been able to control the situation. The main contentious appointment in question was making Rajitha Senaratne the national organiser as was reported on some websites. It was reported on some websites that Chamipka Ranawaka was to be made national organizer while Rajitha would be made the general secretary. It was clear that the old guard of the SLFP was girding their loins to prevent such appointments. As it turns out, Rajitha Senaratne has been given the less contentious position of Vice President while Ranawaka has not been accommodated. Nobody will really oppose Rajitha being made a Vice President of the party as he had started his political career in the SLFP and had he remained with the party throughout, he would have been one of the most senior party members today. What blasted his prospects were the years he spent in the SLMP, BNP and the UNP before rejoining the SLFP in 2007.

In the view of the present writer, clipping the wings of the State Minister of Defence Ruwan Wijewardene was an integral part of this strategy to keep the SLFP in one piece. It was both an insult to the UNP and a warning. Ruwan has been left with four marginal institutions, the Rana Viru Seva Authority, the Defence Services College, Defence Services Command and Staff College and the National Cadet Corp. Just days ago Ruwan was touring the north and pledging not to remove army camps and to give the three forces the opportunity to function with dignity. Yet with one stroke of the pen, the armed forces have been taken away from his purview. This is no less a coup than what happened in November 2003.

It’s not that the UNP did not provoke such an action. The flippant attitude that the UNP leadership adopted towards the allegation that John Amaratunga’s goons had assaulted the Wattala PS Chairman was spreading so much dissension within the SLFP that President Sirisena obviously had to fire a warning shot over the UNP to stop the situation from getting out of control. When the SLFP took one step backwards on the no-confidence issue, Lakshman Kiriella went so far as to direct jibes at the SLFP saying that the opposition was now ‘dumbstruck’. These jibes were taking their toll on the party and Sirisena obviously had to do something to calm the SLFP down. Clipping Ruwan’s wings appears to have been the strategy adopted by Sirisena to keep the SLFP happy. This is also a warning to the UNP that the president can take the police department as well away from the UNP’s control.

If he was to retain control over the SLFP, Sirisena would have had to take a step like this. He will have to continue to dangle the carrot of state power in front of the SLFP in order to keep them at heel. It goes without saying that if the SLFPers began to feel that Sirisena was doing the bidding of the UNP by keeping the SLFP on a leash, he would have gradually lost control of the party. Now, having clipped the wings of Ruwan Wijewardene and refrained from making any controversial changes in the office bearers of the party, Sirisena has moved to counter the disillusionment that was spreading throughout the party. There was some urgency in this as Dinesh Gunawardena, Vasudeva Nanayakkara, Wimal Weerawansa and Udaya Gammampila had announced a meeting in Nugegoda with the sole aim of making Mahinda Rajapaksa the prime ministerial candidate of the UPFA at the next parliamentary election. Sirisena had to do something fast to prevent mass defections from the SLFP to this new platform. For the time being, he seems to have succeeded in keeping the SLFP together.

In the run-up to yesterday’s SLFP executive committee (Samastha Lanka Karaka Sabhawa) meeting, a list of over 60 politicians who served in the Rajapaksa regime who collectively had over 2,000 complaints filed against them with the Bribery Commission was published.  Among those whose names were mentioned were Basil Rajapaksa, Mahindananda Aluthgamage, Rohitha Abeygunawardene, Dullas Alahapperuma, Namal Rajapaksa,  Wimal Weerawansa, Pavithra Wanniarachchi, Lakshman Yapa Abeywardene,  Sanath Jayasuriya, Nimal Siripala de Silva, Dilan Perera, Lakshman Seneviratne, Kumara Welgama, Arumugam Thondaman, Johnston Fernando, Sarana Gunawardene, Felix Perera, A.L.M.Athaulla, Susil Premajayantha, Anura Priyadarshana Yapa, D.M. Jayaratne, Vijithamuni de Soysa, Jagath Pushpakumara, Sumedha Jayasena, Susantha Punchinilame, John Seneviratne, Udith Lokubandara, Dayasritha Tissera, Sajin Vaas Gunawardene, Nishantha Muthuhettigama, Mahinda Amaraweera, Lakshman Wasantha Perera, Bandula Gunawardene, Gamini Lokuge, Keheliya Rambukwella, Duminda Silva, S.M.Chandrasena, Lalith Dissanayake, Mervyn Silva, Gunaratne Weerakoon, S.B.Dissanayake and Nirmala Kotelawala.

In addition to this, complaints were also said to have been received against key officials of the past regime including ex-CJ Mohan Peiris, Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, P.B.Jayasundera, Ajith Nivaard Cabraal, Gamini Senarath and Anura Siriwardena. In short, virtually everybody who was anybody in the Rajapaksa regime is on the list. The director general of the Bribery Commission was transferred and a new official appointed by the Justice Minister of the new UNP government for the avowed purpose of ‘expediting’ investigations into complaints. The strategy of the UNP (and the JVP and JHU) was obviously to destroy the credibility of the UPFA with corruption and bribery charges against everybody who was anybody in the past government ahead of the parliamentary election and to wade through slaughter to victory.

If Maithripala Sirisena had stood by idly and allowed the opponents of the SLFP to have their way, he would have gone down in history as the man who destroyed the party. It is unlikely that Sirisena would want to end his career with such a black mark.

    Who did that ?

    I think people should ask for explanation. People have a right to understand what is happening under the table and why ?
    People should not how USA/INDIA managed to manipulate the ex-president and how.

    There is no yahapalanaya with this kind of obvious political secrets hanging around and fools killing each other not knowing all these.

    SLFP must get back to its roots. The party of the common man veered away from its core in the past 11 years. During the past 11 years, the party leadership (de facto leader and national organizer) shuttled between citizens of the United Kingdom and the United States. Even the pro-western UNP was not that bad. We must accept this grave mistake and bring the party back to its roots of the five great forces.

  9. ranjit Says:

    What ever said and done the end game should be Mahinda Rajkapksa take over the country back again before the International community comprise of evil Americans,British and Indians,Diaspora and the Europeans get together and hand over half the country separately to Tamils & Muslims and allowing Sinhalese to live in the rest of the country.

    I said that because the leaders we have today cannot be trusted. Ranil will say YES SIR to everything what International community demands. Sirisena is just a puppet with no backbone. Chandrika is a LTTE Sympathizer and a friend of Diaspora and she will never do anything good to the country. Tamils & Muslims cannot be trusted for a dime even. They are waiting for the right time to grab what ever possible with NO love for the country but for their own benefit.

    Nimal,Vasu,Dinesh,Gamampila are more patriotic to the Motherland than all UNPer’s and other traitors who are in this Yahapalana Govt. They have experience and shown great love to our country when it was necessary and during rough times in the past. Corruption was in both sides for the last 60 years and it’s difficult to find not only a politicians even Govt servant who are not corrupted in this country. Whole world has this phenomenon even America,British and all the European countries. Chose a better Govt than this Jarapalanaya if you need to live in Peace and Harmony same like we were having during 2009 to 2014.

    Indian penetration in SL is quite high… They even penetrated BOC, and it happened that SL BOC board member invited so called indian company as management consultant and they are pushing indian sub standard products to the bank and distorting the whole tender process. In one meeting I told these consultant to shut up since they do not understand SL market and don’t push their rubbish here since their mandate is now being compromised. Once tender conditions are compromised , then whole BOC standards will come down and indian control would be difficult to remove.
    I know the idiot who brought these indians and waiting to get him to account what he has done.

    Dear Charles, you said

    “Please do not bother with this idiots who do not know what they say and do. They have no idea that supporting this government is selling our country to the west. In thid government there are no patriots. They all have their personal agenda and that is it and what happens to the country and the innocent people ar not their concern.”

    I KNOW you mean well in your concern for me when you say this, but I DON’T AGREE that leaving these ENEMIES of Sri Lanka to comment UNCONTESTED without being held ACCOUNTABLE for all they did in the RECENT past to UNDERMINE & OUST the GOSL that Liberated, Reunified and was Rapidly Developing our Motherland is the RIGHT thing to do.

    They are NOT IDIOTS who know not what they say or do, but DEVIOUS CONNIVING CON-ARTISTES and AVOWED ENEMIES of our Motherland GEARING UP to REPEAT their PREVIOUS PERFORMANCE on the BACKS of the Sinhala MODAYAS!!!

    They INCESSANTLY MOCKED all the Patriots who blogged here, including YOU, in their STRATEGY to turn the VOTERS of Sri Lanka against the UPFA GOSL. After DOING THAT, they came here and CROWED about their SUCCESS in OUSTING that GOSL.

    That RAT “Facebook” Lorenzo who pretended to be a PATRIOT all these years, building up his “PATRIOT” credentials hiding under a TREACHEROUS SHEEPSKIN to strike at the CRITICAL MOMENT to HELP CREATE an EELAM for his TRUE SPONSORS, brought a LARGE TEAM of AGITATORS and AVATARS to LankaWeb to support his CAMPAIGN.

    In the Aftermath of the Election, in a MOMENT OF UNWISE BRAVADO & HUBRIS provoked by my CRITICISMS, “Facebook” Lorenzo disclosed many of his REGIME CHANGE ACTIVITIES …. websites and blogs hosted, Facebook and Twitter accounts maintained, teams of Propagandists fielded, and AVATAR accounts activated …. RIGHT HERE AT LankaWeb. That, you may RECALL, is what finally COMPELLED the LankaWeb Moderator to INTERVENE to RESTRICT his blogging ACTIVITIES. I had been WARNING LankaWeb readers to this danger of Lorenzo’s activities long before the LankaWeb Moderator came down hard on him!

    Nevertheless, he and his TEAM of AVATARS/AGITATORS are STILL COMMENTING at LankaWeb, and have even INVADED LankaWeb’s List of Article Contributors, as LISTED on LankaWeb’s Home page. I know this beyond reasonable doubt, having OBSERVED his antics for MANY YEARS on MANY FORA and through PERSONAL EXPERIENCE of his DISRUPTIVE ACTIVITIES at one of my own blogsites.

    Although his main blog-handle of “Facebook” Lorenzo at LankaWeb is NOW IRRETRIEVABLY EXPOSED & COMPROMISED, some of his AVATARS continue their campaign of creeping back to regain the confidence of the LankaWeb community by making seemingly Patriotic comments here and there, but CONTINUING to sow disaffection and doubt in the minds of unwary voters.

    LankaWeb Editor should know that at least TWO of the Authors on his List of Contributors listed on the LankaWeb Homepage are in fact AVATARS of “Facebook” Lorenzo himself planted at LankaWeb MANY YEARS AGO!

    ………………………..
    Let me now address why we should CONFRONT and OUST this VIRAL INFESTATION from LankaWeb, or at least POST WARNINGS to the UNWARY as I am now doing by CONFRONTING them!

    As you well know, there is a General Election that will be held in Sri Lanka in April, 2015, which the Patriotic Forces of Sri Lanka MUST WIN CONVINCINGLY, to protect our Motherland from the CONSEQUENCES of the Electroral Coup-de-Etat Engineered by the Anti-National Forces with SPONSORHIP of Foreign REGIME CHANGE artistes in the recent Presidential Election.

    Sri Lanka’s ENEMIES are GEARING UP …. even as I write … to REPEAT the PERFORMANCE of January 8, 2015 … by sowing DISAFFECTION, DOUBT, CONFUSION and BUCKETS of MUD at the candidates of the UPFA within the SLFP.

    They fielded an INTERNET enabled CAMPAIGN, of UNPRECEDENTED PROPORTIONS and similar those DEPLOYED to OVERTURN established governments in the Arab Spring fiasco, to achieve their PURPOSE that day. Are we, the Patriotic SONS & DAUGHTERS of Lanka, to turn the other cheek now for them to SLAP in CONTEMPT and DRAG OUR MOTHERLAND into the SAME SLAVERY to Foreigners, Separatists and their Greedy Paid Puppets that we emerged from in 2005?

    We are seeing these ENEMIES of Sri Lanka GEARING UP HERE to AGAIN DO WHAT they did leading up to January 8, 2015, offering honeyed words f wrongdoing my the My3 GOSL to disarm us and let them screw us again. Don’t fall PREY to this SIREN SONG by SERIAL TRAITORS. Should we let them REPEAT THAT PERFORMANCE AGAIN, or are we GOING TO HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE. and YELL with all of our strength, HELL NO! WE WON’T LET YOU DO THAT AGAIN!

    There is an old Sinhala saying that warns the STUPIDLY UNWARY “Raa Watunu Waley Dawal Watenna Epa Puthey!”

    HELL YES! Let us not FALL into the SAME PIT in BROAD DAYLIGHT that we STUMBLED into in the PITCH DARKNESS of the NIGHT!

    Let us SLICE these EELAMIST HYPOCRITES off at their KNEES with the CUTTING EDGE of our VERBAL SWORDS. Let us IDENTIFY & EXPOSE them, TAR & FEATHER them, and CHASE them from PILLAR to POST, with the CLEAR MESSAGE that “NEVER AGAIN DARE TO CON US” planted firmly on their SMELLY BEHINDS!

    Sri Lanka’s revenue collection slows down impacting 100- day programme

    www DOT sundaytimes DOT lk/150215/business-times/sri-lankas-revenue-collection-slows-down-impacting-100-day-programme-135955 DOT html

    The Inland Revenue Department (IRD)’s continuing failure to collect taxes due to the lethargic attitude of officials and poor administration at the helm could hinder the 100 day relief programme of the new government and hurt economic growth, Treasury officials warned.

    According to the IRD’s monthly revenue performance report up to February 10, revenue collection was Rs.2, 928 million, falling short of the Rs. 5 billion target by Rs. 2, 803 million.

    The Department should double the revenue collection efforts to meet the target and the present Director General should implement pragmatic programme towards this end, they said.

    But the department officials are fighting for promotions after the change of the government and some of them have staged a protest demonstration recently against the top administration.

    This situation is aggravating day by day and this was brought to the attention of the new Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake as well, they disclosed.

    The government will have to find an additional sum of Rs. 17 billion to meet the salary hike of public sector employees and pensioners, they said, adding that the reduction of tariffs on essential items would compel the Government to further cut down state expenditure.

    This combination of reduced revenue and increased expenditure will inevitably result in an increase in the budget deficit and additional borrowing, they pointed out.

    A senior Treasury official said the failure to increase tax revenue will cause pressure to cut capital spending “with a possible adverse impact on growth”.

  15. NeelaMahaYoda Says:

    By the way Latest news says that Sri Lanka’s new government will seek to borrow more than $4.0 billion from the IMF and other international lenders as it “restructures” expensive Chinese debt, the finance minister said Thursday.Ravi Karunanayake said he was travelling to Washington next week for talks with the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank on securing support to boost reserves and finance investments in health and education.”With the new government in place, there is a lot of international goodwill,” Karunanayake said.

    This is going to be a litmus test for IMF of their integrity as an independent apolitical organisation. If they allocate $4.0 billion for a government which has foolishly and irresponsibly ignored the basic IMF conditionality in their Interim budget, then whole world will react.

  17. Fran Diaz Says:

    We are beginning to think that Sri Lanka’s Socio-Economic problem is Socialism vs Capitalism.

    Let’s face it : It appears that the west wants Capitalism in Lanka. Is the UNP & their minority support groups the chosen ones to instal that in Lanka ?
    Only America has mostly Capitalism with dashes of Socialism from the time of the two great Roosevelts as Presidents e.g. Social Security. President Obama has been trying very hard to bring in fairer deals to the common people through Affordable Health Care Act etc but is constantly criticised/thwarted for that by the Republican Opposition ! He also tried to bring in Gun Control laws but was again thwarted.

    Does the west itself now have pure Capitalism ? NO ! Europe has mostly SOCIALISM. There were TWO WORLD WARS/many Revolutions before SOCIALISM was installed in European countries. Britain herself has heavy duty social programs.

    Sri Lanka is presently a Socialist state. Why should we change ??

    In Lanka, it should be a 35-40% private sector with at least 60% State sector ventures in order to maintain employment for the masses and fair play economics/security for the masses.

    We ought to try and adapt the German Constitution for Sri Lanka. This Constitution was put in place for Germany by US President Harry Truman after the WW II. He failed to do the same for USA. Today, German is flourishing, thanks to Pres Truman’s wise ideas.

  18. Geeth Says:

    Dear readers, pardon me for going away from the main theme of the article. Since currently we all are experiencing a political turmoil in Sri Lanka, let me suggest the following proposals that we must bring onto the bargaining table for the winning of ex president Mahinda Rajapaksha back into reigns. Mahinda needs us, we need Mahinda, so we must come to a deal with him. However if he declares that he will abolish 13th and will adhere to national development policy based on the consensus of a national task force for a production oriented economy, then the UNP and the My3 faction will end up in the political wilderness. May the triple Gem bless Mahinda to be enlightened with this simple political wisdom.

    ඉන්දියාවත්, බටහිරත් ඔහුට පිටුපසින් පිහියෙන් අනින ලද බව ඔහු දැන් දන්නෙහිය. එය දන්නා නිසා ඔවුන් සතුටු කිරීමේ වගකීමෙන් ඔහු නිදහස්ය. උතුරු නැගෙනහිර ද්‍රවිඩ චන්ද දායකයා ඔහුව කරපොත්තෙකු මෙන් පාගා දමා තිබේ. ඔහු අනවශ්‍ය තරමට ඇත පත ගෑ කොළඹ ආත්මයක් නැති තුප්පහියන් රැල ඔහුට වස දී ඇති බව ඔහු මැනවින් දනී. දැන් ඔහු නිදහස් මිනිසෙකි. මේ පරාජය ජාතියේ අනාගත මාවත වෙනස් කරන ආශිර්වාදයක් වියහැකි සිදුවීමක් බවට පෙරලීමට ඔහුට හැකි විය යුතුය. පරාජය ඔහු අත තිබෙන දෙවියන් විසින් ඔහුවෙත ලභා දෙන ලද වරයක් සේ සලකන්න.

    අපේ මුළු පරපුරම ශ්‍රී ලංකා නිදහස් පක්ෂය නිසා සියලු දේවල් නැති කරගත්ත මිනිස්සු. අපි පක්ෂයෙන් ගත්තු දෙයක් නැහැ. අපි පක්ෂයට දීල තියෙනවා මිසක්.අඩු තරමින් රක්ශාවක්වත් අපි අරන් නැහැ. එනිසා, ඔය දේශපාලකයින්ට වඩා පක්ෂයෙන් යමක් ඉල්ලා හිටින්ඩ අපිට සදාචාරාත්මක අයිතියක් තියෙනවා. මම පෞද්ගලිකව දෙසපාලකයෝ පස්සෙන් යන බූරු පැටියෙක් නෙවෙය්. නමුත් මහින්ද වගේම දෙවෙනි පරම්පරාවේ ශ්‍රී ලංකා පාක්ෂිකයෝ හැටියට අපි ඉල්ලා හිටින්නේ එක දෙයයි. 13 අහෝසි කරන්න, ගංගා නිම්න පදනම් කරගත් කලාප අනුව හෝ දිස්ත්‍රික්ක සභා මත පදනම්ම්ව බලය විමද්‍ය ගත කරන්න, ජාතික ආර්ථික ප්‍රතිපත්තියක් ගෙන්න. මේක මහින්දට පුළුවන්, සිරිපාලට බැරි දෙයක්.

    මේ ඓතිහාසික කර්තව්‍යය ඉටුකරලා, රටට සදාකාලික සාමයක් සෞභාග්‍යයක් ලබාදීල ඉතිහාස ගත වෙන්න මහින්ද ලැහැස්තිද????????

    මා මේ කී දෑ ඔහු සැලකිල්ලට ගන්නේ නම්, ප්‍රථමයෙන්ම ඔහු ඔවුන්ගේ නිවසේ නම වෙනස් කරනු ඇත. කාල්ටන් Carlton වෙනුවට සිංහල නමක් නිවසට යෙදුවොත්, ඔහු selfless ජන නායකයෙකු ලෙස දේශපාලනයට අවතීර්ණ වීමට බලාපොරොත්තු වන බවට අපට දෙන ලද සංඥාවක් සේ එය පිළිගැනීමට අප බලාපොරොත්තු වෙමු.

    The advantage of the declaration of repealing 13 is far reaching. Many UNP supporters and other party supporters will vote for the candidate (hopefully Rajapaksa) who pledges to repeal 13 is a definite result. That will even happen among the JHU supporters. By this way, president Mahinda Rajapaksa can make his defeat a boomerang to the conspirators, especially for India and the west. The entire conspiracy will be backfired. Let us make them eat their entire shit load.
