Are there anti Mahinda Rajapakse agents infiltrating into Lankaweb ?
Posted on November 16th, 2016
The article “Maithripala Sirisena desecrated SLFP of SWRD Bandaranaike-it ceased to exist on 16 January,2015”, is to say that SWRD took away his Sinhala Maha Sabha from UNP to form the SLFP a radically different political party with a socialist leaning, as he thought that the pro-western capitalist system of UNP is not suitable to an Independent Sri Lanka.
SWRD confirmed the SLFP’s socialist trend by joining with the LSSP and the Sri Lanka Communist Party. SWRD never expected any one inheriting the leadership of his SLFP to go back to UNP to form a government along with them. Therefore Maithripala Sirisena who left SLFP to join the UNP and the opposition has no right to lead the SLFP. The only way out now for the true members of SLFP is to displace Maithripala Sirisena from the leadership of SLFP, giving it back to Mahinda Rajapakse the last leader of SLFP, or form a new political party which would include the policies of SWRD, lead by Mahinda Rajapakse.
That was what the article was about.
When the article appeared on Lankaweb, the first to comment on it was Gonsul statating that, there is a notable difference between MR and SWRD…..and a long tirade without any connection to what the article was really about. Then Lorenzo joined in with his point by point list showing the difference between SWRD and MR. Thereafter all the comments were about the “comments” of Gonsul and Lorenzo.
Some of the articles on the Lanakweb which are often against the present Yahapalanaya set up, and in appreciation of the political, social,and economic contribution of MR, are mutilated or invalidated by the Comments of Gonsul and Lorenzo. This continues, Lorenzo brings in Gota into the picture but the intention in doing so is perhaps not so much to make a hero out of him, but eventually to make Gotabhaya Rajapakse unpopular.
When articles written “painfully” to express dislike of what is happening in the country in the name of democracy, disappear in the smoke of some comments, one begins to wonder what good it serves to speak out against a system that seems to be settling down to destroy Sri Lanka, rather than take it forward as a united country, where there is peace and security.
