Colombo, 10 July. (

All police stations in the Jaffna Peninsula will be shut down, when we come back to power,” revealed Vjayakala Maheswaran, the UNP lead candidate for the parliamentary elections in the Jaffna electoral district.Vijayakala Maheswaran addressing the media

After filing the nomination for the Jaffna electoral district around 3.30 PM today at the Jaffna District Secretary’s office, she spoke to the media persons at the entrance of the district secretariat.

She said, I abide by the laws of this country, as I am a member of our Government.”

Unfortunately” she said that the Police who are supposed to maintain law and order, peace, stability and harmony in this country are not doing so. She alleged that they are braking the laws of the land.

Vjayakala Maheswaran said that all the police stations in Jaffna are housed in houses belonged to private persons and the police are occupying those houses forcefully without the consent of the owners of those houses and lands where those police stations are housed.

She also alleged that it was these very policemen who are involved in aiding and abetting the use of narcotics in the midst of Tamil students and youths.

When speaking in the midst of the media personnel , she pointed out that in the 2005 November Presidential election, UNP leader Ranil Wickremasinghe, failed to be victorious just because of 180,000 votes. She blamed Prabhakaran and LTTE for the defeat of the UNP leader in the election.

She said just because Prabhakaran ordered the Tamils to boycott the Presidential elections after receiving a huge amount of money from the winning candidate, Ranil was forced to loose.

If not for such cunningness of Prabhakaran, Ranil would have been the winner, because all the Tamils would have voted for him.

She announced that no dictatorial forces in the country would prevent her from winning in the forthcoming parliamentary elections.

Vijayakala is the former member of Parliament from the Jaffna electoral district and the wife of T. Maheswaran, a Member of Parliament, who was assassinated alleged to be by a government backed para-military group, in January 2008.

Vijayakala contested the 2010 parliamentary election as one of the United National Party candidates in Jaffna District and was elected to Parliament.

After the 2015 presidential election, she was appointed Deputy Minister of Women’s Affairs by the newly elected President Maithripala Sirisena.Vijayakala’s posters seen in all the CTB buses in the district

    That was the Title of an article I wrote and published nearly 20 years ago.

    Much water has flowed under the political bridge in Sri Lanka since then, but that seminal WARNING RINGS OUT LOUD today as it did then.

    We STILL have Anti-National “Leaders” like Ruinous Ranil desperately trying to placate separatist terrorist enemies defeated only 5 years ago, and somehow propel themselves into power by DISMANTLING and SELLING their Motherland to its ENEMIES!

    STAND FAST Patriots, and show this CRAVEN WRETCH Ruinous Ranil to the door with your votes come August 17, 2015!

    Ranil Wickremesinghe promises devolution of power to provinces

    ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

    July 11 (Hindu) Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe today promised power devolution to the island�s provinces as part of the reconciliation process with the minority Tamils ahead of the August 17 parliamentary election.

    His government would look to devolve power in an undivided island, Wickremesinghe said.

    The Tamil minority has been urging for power to the north and east provinces since the LTTE’s military campaign ended in 2009.

    The premier said the private lands acquired for military purposes in the former conflict zones will be returned to their owners after the election.

    Wickremesinghe made the remarks — being seen as his first policy statement for the polls — while addressing his United National Party (UNP) special convention which adopted a resolution to work as a broader political front to pursue good governance and democracy.

    The convention of the UNP, that was President Maithripala Sirisena’s main backer in the January presidential election, came after his decision this week to allow former President Mahinda Rajapaksa to run for the August 17 election from his party.

    Sirisena, who branded Rajapaksa as a corrupt leader and resisted calls to allow him back, has also agreed to give party tickets for all Rajapaksa loyalists who face corruption charges.

    The decision shocked the UNP and Sirisena’s civil society allies, who blamed Sirisena for betraying the cause for good governance.

    Angered by his decision to bring back Rajapaksa, a Sirisena loyalist Rajitha Senaratne said a group of them were leaving him and would align with the UNP to contest the election.

    “We can’t get on the same platform with corrupt and murderous elements. So we have decided to join UNP’s front for good governance,” Senaratne said.

    Arjuna Ranatunga, the former world cup winning cricket captain and a key Sirisena ally in the January election, is also said to be contemplating a move to leave Sirisena and join the UNP front.

    Why oh why did the war spare them!

    First they got rid of Singhala people, then the army, then police.

    TAMIL ELAM in full.

    Hope TNA will win all seats in Jaffna without giving any to UNP. EPDP can win 1.

    UNP is a bigger threat to SL than TNA now.


    If MR wins and this woman is not charged for TREASON, then their is big problem with MR policy!. Then hang her in public.
