Ranil Wickramasinghe  a circus clown  in Parliament is not fit to be  Prime Minister of Sri Lanka.
Posted on March 10th, 2016

By Charles.S.Perera

Ranil Wickramasinghe miserably  failed as the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka under President Chandrika Kumaratunga during  2002-2004,   handing over parts of the North to terrorists under a CFA which he had himself not understood.

He showed his characteristic penchant to act if Sri Lanka is his heritage, and that he takes orders from no body. He  acts without foresight or without the wisdom of a man who is called upon  to  lead the government of  a nation. He not only failed as the Prime Minister  in 2002-2004, but also  put Sri Lanka in great danger of being divided forcibly by a group of ruthless terrorists,  with a terrorist leader  far more intelligent and capable than Ranil Wickramasinghe himself .

With that experience no sensible person elected as the President of Sri Lanka should have made Ranil Wickramasinghe his Prime Minister.

Today, Sri Lanka is economically and in all other respects in ruins.  The principal preoccupation of the Prime Minster Ranil Wickramasinghe, and his cabinet of UNP Ministers is hunting for thieves under the previous government of Mahinda Rajapakse.  Even that is a complete failure as they cannot catch real thieves and take in all and sundry with any connection to the previous government of the  President Mahinda Rajapakse  or his  family.

There had never been a government even in the African continent as inefficient and utterly corrupt as the government of the Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe.  Under the previous government of Mahinda Rajapakse every week saw a new project declared open or  declaring open already constructed building , road, hotels, schools and so forth.  But under Ranil Wickramasinghe’s government we only hear, practically every day of arrests and accusations against persons for probable acts of corruption.

One is sick about Yahapalanaya, which is not yahapalanaya at all,  but ways and means  to destroy  Sri Lanka that was raised from ruins of thirty years of terrorism to be  a vastly developed and a progressively developing country, by  a visionary leader Mahinda Rajapakse.

That period of changes taking place in Sri Lanka in its march towards progress and development has been made to be forgotten by the Ranil Wickrmasinghe’s taking Sri Lanka in to the fold of USA and the former Colonialists, as a subordinate satellite state.

More than one years after 8th January, 2015 since the unfortunate political change took place givng power to a decidedly destructive, undeserved  UNP leader Ranil Wickramasinghe Sri Lanka languishes in the shade of  gloomy storm clouds of  coming political , economic and social disaster,  like a ship without its motor tossed up in waves of uncertainty without  a destination  in view, to be wrecked and  sink deep into the sea..

UNP with its erratic capitalist and pro Western pseudo-democratic policies is without a capitalist class within  to promote Sri Lanka in to  any sort of development.  In the absence of a local capitalist class to promote its political system UNP has to look for the capitalist countries of the West for its  political system to exist.

That is what UNP had been doing from its inception  without any success and continue to do today with Ranil Wickramasinghe as the UNP Prime Minister.   Ranil Wickramasinghe  has no political vision for the development of the country and turns to USA, India , Germany and UK for inspiration.  The systems are poles apart and Sri Lanka as a result  is being strangled into suffocation without an outlet for its potential development.

Capitalist system has failed every where in the world, with financial crisis after crisis, nevertheless, with the  rich getting richer and the poor remaining poor. In the latest Exposition of Motor Vehicle is Geneva five hundred latest models  of a car had  all been sold at a cost of 2.6 mllion dollars each even before the opening of the show. Yet the west says it is facing a financial crisis

The rich countries of the West even with their continuous financial crisis  can fall back on  its basic capital earned by robbing the countries they colonised or conquered.

It is only when there is even a small change from hard core  capitalism that countries show progress.  Socialism is a natural system of management, where as capitalism is artificial.  Even in USA it is Democratic Party which  is politically different if not socialist,  and more progressive than the Republican Party which in recent times took USA to war with Iraq.

But Sri Lanka is a poor country, which   Ranil Wickramasinghe and his Foreign Minister buddy Mangala Samaraweera are trying to take it by the scruff of its neck to throw it  into the den of the monstrous Western capitalist regimes.  Sri Lanka will naturally be eaten up by these monsters and Ranil Wickramasinghe  would not rescue Sri Lanka from being mangled ad devoured by Western capitalism.

Unfortunately the President Maithripala Sirisena, born an ungrateful man, and proved to be so chose the wrong man to be the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka.

Chandrika Kumaratunga had the guts to kick  Ranil Wickramasinghe out of power in 2004, but the President Maithripala Sirisena  weak and  dependent on Ranil Wickramasinghe dares not mind playing the second role to the Prime Minister. Maithripala Sirisena suffers the same ignominy Chandrika Kuamratunga suffered under Ranil  Wickramasinghe from 2002 to 2004.

Chandrika has been blinded by hatred and desire for vengeance, she seems to have forgotten the de facto position she was pushed into by Ranil Wickramasinghe  who was acting as the President , even going to meet President Bush in the White House.

Ranil Wickramasinghe does not maintain the dignity of his office  as a Prime Minister.  He behaves like a circus clown  in the Parliament calling its members  pimps, monkeys, gypsies, donkeys and beggars, laughing at the same time at his jokes moving backwards and forward  to see that his UNP cohorts are enjoying his joke.

Ranil Wickramasinghe  is unable to make a decent speech in parliament. He looses his temper and abuses the members of the parliament.  When the  President asked  Prime Mnister Ranil Wickramasinghe to remove the Governor of the Central Bank after the Bond Scam, he turned a deaf ear and transferred the Central Bank Employees who raised their voices against the bond scam.

Ranil Wickramasinghe  speaks of democracy, but he acts as a dictator.  When the ETCA agreement with India is being heavily criticised he  does not consent to discuss the agreement in parliament nor is he willing to present it for a public debate. He instead says that he will pass it by June, this year. He refused to discuss the ETCA agreement with the Medical Officers Association.

Ranil Wickramasinghe’s government is facing a serious financial crisis , but his way out of it  is not consulting the Parliament to find a solution  together, but to immediately blame the former President Mahinda Rajapakse as the cause of the present financial problem, which is certainly not true, as it is his government that lost  2 billion Rupee in the Central Bank Bond Scam.  

His continuous existence as the Prime Minister depends on to what extent he can blame the former government for every problem he faces.  He  refuses to understand that his problem arises from his hatred towards the former President Mahinda Rajapakse, his  continuous efforts to take revenge from him and his family.

These negative thoughts make him blind to finding correct solutions to the  problems which are of his own making. If he can clear his mind of the debris of hatred he may be able to see thing better,  and even consult the Previous President Mahinda Rajapakse to find a solution to present day problems.

He should not have antagonised China to please USA and India.  China is the only country which can help developing countries as they give unconditional loans along with technical aid.  USA or any other country of the West hasn’t got the  money to help developing countries, but instead they will get its multimillionaires, and companies to invest in acquiring  large extents of land to set up fruit farms and build their industrial plants to  control  developing countries economically, and politically.

Ranil Wickramasinghe takes decisions  without foresight to solve immediate problems, but does not consider future damage his  decision may cause to Sri Lanka. Ranil Wickramasinghe  expecting Saudi Arabian financial aid to overcome the present financial debacle of Sri Lanka allows Saudi Arabia  to set up Shariah Banks.

The activities of Ranil Wickramasinghe’s government are not transparent.  He does not allow public debate of his proposals that seriously affect the country.  According to statements made by some Indian Ministers  the Indian Government has already allocated funds and the construction work for  a bridge between India and Sri Lanka has  already begun at  Indian end, but Ranil Wickramasinghe  ignores concerns of the people of Sri Lanka with regard to the building of the bridge to connect South India and North of Sri Lanka.

It is because of the mistakes of Ranil Wickramasinghe’s UNP policies that Sri Lanka is facing problems which cannot be settled without selling Sri Lanka to the West.  The country had neither financial problems nor serious political problems under Mahinda Rajapakse.  But as the USA with its experts on regime change carefully studied  solution to  change Mahinda Rajapakse Government, every body fears to deny the falsity of accusations that led to regime change.

The solution they found was to accuse  Mahinda Rajapakse his Government  his family and all connected to Mahinda Rajapakse as thieves who had made money from all development projects, took bribes, earned commissions and stole gold,  killed journalists, and started a white van culture of kidnapping and killing opponents.

What has happened as a result is that every one is ready to accept that  argument without any  proof of the accusations. In a recent TV Debate a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank when he was asked, why the former Government of President Mahinda Rajapakse had managed to develop the country  without  encountering any financial problems for five years after the elimination of  terrorism, said that the figures quoted by the previous government were in correct.  He was obviously someone who was discontent that he could not replace the Governor of the Central Bank Mr. Cabral.

But reality , though the hard core UNP sympathisers and those who are prejudiced against Mahinda Rajapakse and his family for some reason or other , is that Mahind Rajapakse and his family had not been benefitting from the development of Sri Lanka.  There was no reason for him or his family to resort to misappropriation or stealing of funds as, as the President he was entitled to  a salary, allowances and other necessities that come along with his position  for him to and his family to live in comfort and in respect.

Mahinda Rajapakse would have never resorted to any mean ways of earning as he knew that once he is out of office  his enemies will not leave any stone unturned to find material  to tarnish  his image.  That is what is happening now and his enemies have not found any thing  but nevertheless tarnishing  his image by finding fault with him for everything they have been unable to do, they continue to paint him as  dark as they can do.

But with all accusation the fact remains that Mahinda Rajapakse  is the only political leader of ourt time who developed Sri Lanka after eliminating a ruthless terrorism. As it is with Maithripala Sirisena and Ranil Wickramasinghe at the helm  one can be assured that  nobody after Mahinda Rajapakse  will raise Sri Lanka to what it was  before 8th January, 2015.

Ranil Wickramasinghe was so intent on  eliminating Rajapakses from politics that he even created his own FCID to investigate people he wanted.  He was all out to please the West to the extent that,  as he did in the case of signing the CFA with Terrorist Prabhakaran, Ranil to sponser the USA Resolution against Sri Lanka presented at Geneva UN Human Rights Counciil, without consulting the Parliament. He is high handed arrogant and unable to think of the possible consequences of his acts.

Ranil Wickramasinghe keeps every one under his control, even the Speaker of the House Karu Jayasuria cannot take an independent decision in the House.  The Speaker  does not call to order the Prime Minister when he does not use parliamentary language when referring to the Members of the Parliament.

Ranil Wickramasinghe’s appointment of Sampanthan as the leader of the Opposition was irregular, and far from  yahapalanaya government’s assertion of respect to democracy.  The Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe does not respect the culture  of Sri Lanka and its historical past. His allowing the National Anthem to be sung in two language is unconstitutional and disrespectful to Sri Lanka with  its Sinhala Buddhist sentiments infused into it.

Ranil Wickramasinghe is not suitable to be the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka because his short term decision are  a long term  danger to the Sovereignty of Sri Lanka.  Ranil Wickramasinghe is not a patriot like Mahinda Rajapakse. Ranil Wickramsinghe wants to rebuild Sri Lanka on the model of Sigapore, Malaysia and South Africa.

Mahinda Rajapakse wanted  develop and build Sri Lanka as Sri Lanka with its unique Sinhala Buddhist back ground.  He further wanted to maintain the unitary state of Sri Lanka and bring together the communities without giving into political pressure by  the Tamils and the Muslims.

That was the reason  why Mahinda Rajapakse lost the Presidential election. Mahinda Rajapakse was  a Sinhala Buddhist patriot. The teachings of the Buddha emanated from the Temple Trees the then residence of the President of Sri Lanka.

Under Ranil Wickramasinghe’s government the Buddhist monks  are arrested and detained in jail.

    Unfortunately for Lanka PATRIOTS, RW & CBK are the two past leaders who have proven to be UNPATRIOTIC due to their own pain from the past with some of the People of Mother Lanka. Some of their acts from the past have shown them to be inept too.

    It seems to us watching the events unfold with these two people, that either these blocks from the past must be cleared, apologies tendered where due (both sides), and they function as PATRIOTS OF LANKA, or they must depart politics, for the sake of the country …..

    අස්ගිරි මහ නාහිමියෝ අපවත් වෙති !!!!

    What a loss to CIA and RAW.


    Another issue Charles should know has gone unnoticed: Mangala Samaraweera went to Geneva to get money for SL to run country on a daily basis, Swiss Government said we will give you the money if you take back TAMIL CRIMINALS. Mangala agreed to it. First batch will arrive on the first week in April. These 4 were involved in a bank robbery in Switzerland, that resulted in serious injury to a bank security Officer. Did Mangala consult the Parliament? HA HA NO!

    Pol pot ponil is a very capable man. Unfortunately for Mother Lanka, his expertise lies with anti-Buddhist,
    anti-Sri Lanka, anti-Sinhalese activities. Like his traitor uncle thambi mudiyanse he is murderous (Buddhists
    only), cunning and two faced. He is actually a hybrid man. He is 1% Buddhist, 99% catholic. He make sure
    pirith nool clad right hand is raised when talking so some Sinhala modayas will believe every word he
    utters and vote for him with their feet.

    Northern province governor resigns. Pol pot is the one who appoints him. Minister of lands’ roitya karawe. Who
    appoints him? Pol pot ponil of course. Qulification? English first name like reginald or john. Obviously he has to
    look after his buddy, minister of erection (permanent). So he gives the portfolio to him.

    Pol pot ponil actually
    like him being portrayed as useless, then he can carry out whatever he likes. He is a crafty, murderous man
    just like the traitor uncle who put foundations to break up Sri Lanka by signing 13. Today 350-long island has ministers, deputy ministers, pradeshiya saba ministers, chief ministers, etc. etc etc. etc. Too many free loaders. You
    can’t go 10 feet without bumping into one of these deshapaluwo who does no work at all. Only thing they do
    is plunder whatever we have and corrupt activities and causing mayhem.

    If you are still not sure about his two faces just look at the two links.


    Tale of two rebellions. One burns in tyres etc. Other is rewarded with half the country to rule!

    B. Rex Tamils would also suffer losses if CBK/RW depart politics. We presume that the 5,000 acres on 99 yr leases are for them. Using Lanka land, not for local unemployed, but for foreigners ?
    And what about Ranil’s Chunnel to Tamil Nadu – completes the picture, huh ?

    Mr. Perera, I agree with you that Capitalism does not work. I also agree with you regarding Ranil Wickremasingha.
    There are many top economists who have written on the topic. One of the most outspoken has been Dr. Richard Wolf. His famous talk “Capitalism hits the fan” is given below. His solution for capitalism is to have democracy in the work place. The Mondragon Corporation in Spain is actually a large number of Co-operatives under the umbrella of Mondragon. This was set up with the blessings of the Catholic Church. In USA there are many companies which are run as co-operatives where the employees participate in the decision making of the company affairs by being on the board. In Germany which has been very successful any company with over 2000 employees have to have at least 50% of employees on the board by law. This is why unlike USA Germany is very successful.

    Our people have gone to sleep and have forgotten the past. Here are a few more videos to remind those who are interested about Ranil W what he said earlier. People have forgotten how the current cabinet which was also the similar Catholic Govt during the time of Premadasa killed almost 88,000 young Sinhala Buddhists brutally in late 1980s. Where was UNHRC and all the UN human rights watch people and the special rappoteurs and Western self righteous ambassadors at that time. These JVP people were killed most horribly as explained by an eye witness Police investigator A.P. Karunaratna who worked under Ranjan Wijeratna.

    Why are our leaders silent about Ranil W’s doings? Now they are trying to destroy President Mahinda Rajapaksa who was the one man who stood bravely against the the countries who opposed the LTTE army leader being destroyed. We have allowed a man associated with Batalanda and who the Batalanda Commission recommended should have his civic rights removed installed as the Executive Prime Minister. This is truly a massive travesty of justice. In the last one year this man has single handedly brought the country which was coming up so well under President Mahinda Rajapaksa to its knees.

    Batalanda –
    Ranil Wickramasinghe Batalanda

    Ranil Wickramasinghe insulting to Buddhism

  9. Christie Says:

    Most of our politicians are victims and subjects of the Indian Empire like us. This is something we have to understand.

    Even in this forum we attack the West most of the time. I also see West as bad but India is the culprit.

    Hiranthe: You said: “Asgiriya Chief Prelate Passed Away. What a loss to CIA and RAW”. You seemed to be having a “wealth of information” as to that Chief Priest’s connection with CIA & RAW.

    Can you please share that with us? Thank you.

  11. Cerberus Says:

    Ranil W kept trying to hand over the North and East to appease Prabahakaran. He even stopped a crucial military operation in 2001 where the army knew the exact location of Prabahakaran and were ready to take him out.

  12. Dham Says:

    Batalanda Wolf is well known to public.
    But there are wolves who are in sheep’s clothing and stealing your love of the country, love of Buddhism.
    With great ignorance some people are worshipping these wolves and assume they will save the nation.
    But with a little brain they can easily be exposed.

    I condemn Hiranthe’s statement connecting Asgiriya Mahanayake Hamuduruwo to CIA and US just because he opposed to certain action of previous government.

    He would like to know that not only him but 50% of Sinhala Buddhist people disliked action of leading members of previous government ( some have now crossed over) and they will never trust them again anyway. Most people still supported MR in both elections because of their dislike of Ranil+CBK , not because they loved MR.

    Cerberus and may here keeping on bashing the voters but they are fooling themselves. Voters were right. If MR to be trusted again he should accept his negligence and promise people never to repeat those acts again. No matter what sabotage of one’s own countries’ progress in order to satisfy few people is not a patriotic act and will not be successful.

  13. Charles Says:

    Cerberus, Thank you for the videos. They speak for themselves.

  14. Fran Diaz Says:

    Dham is looking for PERFECT LEADERS in Lanka. How can a good leader (not a perfect one, but a good, down to earth, realistic leader) find PERFECT people to work with ? Not a happening thing, not in Lanka, and nowhere in the world, as can be seen in current scenarios around the world.

    The media can expose imperfections in govts. However, the media could be owned or manipulated by unscrupulous people in govts. Govts have to have a strong Opposition – is there a strong Opposition in Lanka under Yahap ? NO ! In fact, it is a Fascist type govt in Lanka.

    May be Dham can send in a List of Corrections for MR to follow, if he does come into some kind of governing post again.


    There are vast changes happening to the Human psyche, longing for Peace & Happiness. We shall have to flow with it ….
    a New Age may be truly dawning.
