Re-colonisation via foreign funded NGOs

 The foreign funded NGOs  who were in the driver’s seat during the Chandrika-Ranil failed regimes, campaigning  vigorously  to brainwash the country from top political hierarchy to grass roots level, spending billions of rupees are back in the driver’s seat once again.

The penetration of  NGOs into the country began in the 1980s. Manipulation of public opinion by making use of the media and the so-called ‘think-tanks’ , who were none other than paid agents of the spy agencies, is one of the usual methods adopted by  the West to create distrust among communities leading to the loss of faith on the country’s rulers and thereby to achieve ‘regime changes’ .

It is now a well known fact that the West were totally unhappy over the elimination of terrorism of the LTTE from our soil and was determined to have a ‘regime change’ by hook or crook and to install ‘a puppet regime’ as they do in the rest of the world.  Finally, they succeeded in achieving their goal in  January this year and their task of exploitation  was easier due to the local support extended by some of the most treacherous politicians who run to them seeking intervention for almost every domestic political issue without exceptions.

If we are to find out who are these foreign funded NGOs are and what they have said and done, since their inception, the easiest way is to go through any of the pro-LTTE websites.  Almost all their media releases, statements, activities etc  were of immense value to the terrorists .  These notorious NGOs were almost the only voices, apart from the separatist groups (both armed and un-armed) , to welcome foreign intervention in the country.  They  promoted the LTTE as an integral part of their so-called solutions and denounced the Government’s effort to eradicate terrorism, placing the military capacity of the GOSL on an equal footing with the LTTE and tried to project the LTTE as invincible.

These so-called ‘Think Tanks’, depending entirely on foreign governments and agencies,  carry on the White Man’s Burden and have a function similar to Christian missionaries during the high colonial era.

Media reports  revealed how a section of the international community was pouring money into Sri Lankan NGOs, in spite of the conclusion of war against terrorism in May, 2009.

These NGOs were busy justifying war crime charges against our heroes (who prevented continuance of loss of innocent lives by eliminating their Mr” Prabhakaran) at a cost of Rs 600mn (in just three years), as the media  revealed, since May 2009.

The Norwegian Embassy was the largest single donor. The European Commission and the Swedish International Development Agency) were the second and the third major contributors during the same period.

On 28th August 2009, soon after the elimination of  LTTE terrorism, the two kingpins of NPC and CPA were reported addressing a close-door meeting convened by the US Institute of Peace (USIP). Another notable participant of this discussion was Teresita Schaffer of The Centre for Strategic and international Studies, one of the former US Ambassadors to Sri Lanka, who was very critical of the Sri Lankan government during her tenure of office in Sri Lanka. As per media reports, the duos from the two NGOs basically said at a meeting, in Washington D.C. with former Ambassador to Sri Lanka, Mr. Robert Blake, was what Blake wanted them to say.

After few months of these meetings, Ban Ki-moon appointed a panel to advice him (i.e the UNSG) on Sri Lanka’s alleged war crime charges and European Union gave conditional ultimatum on GSP Plus. Soon after the appointment of Ban Ki-moon panel, these NGO kingpins  were back in the business by issuing statements one after the other to the foreign and local press supporting the Ban KI-moon’s panel and the EU’s conditions and condemning the actions of the Sri Lankan Government and its people as was usually done by them during the past and the rest of their deeds leading to the ‘regime change’  are now part of the history.

It is leant that a well-known  foreign funded NGO ,  who questioned need for the country’s sovereignty,  advocated vigorously foreign intervention, created disharmony and distrust  among communities towards each other  since its inception in 1993,    has written to some individuals advocating solutions including a new Constitution for the country.   Although  the so-called ‘think tanks’  were said to be ‘most heartening to know that the current government is considering creating a new constitution for this country ‘, in one of their statements, they maintained numb when the regime they managed to install in January continued to violate the country’s Constitution  on many occasions, commencing from the  replacements of  the country’s PM  and the Chief Justice, soon after  a Presidential election.

The solutions they sought in the past were from outside and the solutions they seek now are also from outside. Pumping billions of Rupees to brainwash the people of a nation to achieve the goals of outside elements is a clear-cut interference on its sovereignty. Who will pump billions for nothing in return?

As per a news item appeared in Irida Divayana, the government is seeking Norway’s support to draft a new Constitution for the country and a special envoy from that country was expected to come the 7th of this month. As noted above, Norwegian Embassy was the largest single funding agency of the lobbyist NGOs in our country/  These lobbyist NGOs are to fulfil the needs of their funding agencies whose ultimate aim is none other than creating a new form of colonization around the world.  Thus one can imagined the contents and the status of the new Constitution  for the country,  being prepared by these NGOs and   to be enforced  through their puppet regime , considering what they have preached  as solutions and the anti- Sinhala  anti-Buddhist stance  adopted since their inceptions.

    Lanka president stalls bid to buy transport equipment from India

    [ Monday, 14 December 2015, 05:57.56 AM GMT +05:30 ]

    Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena has put on hold a proposal by the Minister of Transport, Nimal Sripala de Silva, to buy rail locomotives and carriages; 500 omnibus engines and 500 gear boxes from Indian public and private sector suppliers using the remainder of an USD 800 million Indian Line of Credit extended in 2010, Sunday Times reports.
    The Lankan President’s move follows an adverse report by a committee appointed by the Ministry of Transport to go into complaints about railway equipment previously imported from India under the Indian Line of Credit.

    When the committee was appointed, government spokesmen told the media that all unsolicited foreign aided projects were being probed for probable malpractices and that the projects included Chinese-aided ones too.

    Speaking to Express on the report, the Project Director of IRCON International Ltd, S.L.Gupta, said that the members of the investigating committee did not have the technical competence to judge the quality of the equipment or the reasons for any failure. He also said that a certain politically influential anti-India official was behind the move.

    In a press release issued on Sunday, Gupta said that IRCON is committed to rectifying the defects found during the defect liability period and substantial steps are already being taken in this regard. But he stressed the importance of proper maintenance, an area in which the Ceylon General Railway (CGR) is wanting. Sri Lankans cannot complain of malfunctioning of equipment if they do not maintain the equipment properly, Gupta argued. He urged the Lankan railways to provide proper training to its maintenance staff.

    Describing the complaints of breakdowns as grossly exaggerated, Gupta pointed out that the railways are running six pairs of trains between Colombo and Jaffna every day on tracks laid by IRCON and these run to full capacity earning a good income. On October 3, the Lankan Minister of Transport visited the already executed 265 km Northern Railway project and expressed satisfaction about its execution.

    Besides the utilized part of the earlier USD 800 million credit, the Government of India has extended another Line of Credit to the tune of USD 318 million as announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in March 2015, Gupta said. The credit comes at a modest interest of 1.25 percent, while other lenders charge Lanka 8 percent, he pointed out. Repayment will be due in twenty years but there is a grace period of five years.

    Plans for the utilization of the new Line of Credit were discussed when the Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe visited New Delhi in September this year, Gupta said.
