POLITICIANS WERE CELEBRATING INDEPENDENCE DAY TO BOOST THEIR POLTICAL EGO. Are the majority Sri Lankans really enjoy this independence when their lives are battered with economic and social problems. The question to ask is are we really independent? As we observe the actions and decisions taken by the Yahapalanaya over the last two years, we have become YES PEOPLE for the western block, India & China in the presence of spineless duo FM and PM. It appears our independence and the sovereignty of the country has been gradually eroding over the last two years as we see below.

  • Ports of a country is the main veins of her economic activities. So is with Sri Lanka. But we are going to loose our main ports namely Colombo, Hambantota, Trincomalee and Palali  with highest stakes allowed for a few foreign countries. The Government has decided to offer these ports on a platter to the foreigners;
  • !5000 acres to be handed over to China on 99 year lease which amounts to almost selling. WE WILL NEVER GET THEM BACK EVEN AFTER 99 YEARS .
  • ECTA- The trade  and services agreement the Government has planned to sign with India will restrict employment for our next generation and that will be a death knell to our economy ;
  • We are being dictated by the European Union on GSP benefits even demanding Sri Lanka to legalise same sex marriage if we want those benefits;
  • Our FM MANGALA, TNA MP Sumanthiran and America conspired together in 2016 to accept the war crimes by our Forces and appoint a special international Courts to  probe thereby selling country’s soul and the sovereignty;
  • No Equality before Law -only people with money could afford legal actions and can seek justice and not the poor.
  • There are still  thousands of poor citizens in the country who do not have basic human needs like drinking water, shelter, sanitary needs, health and basic education facilities etc.

With all these can we open our wide mouth and say we are independent? This booru Nidahasa” kanteda?

    අපිත් වෙනත් බිරිතනි-ඉන්දියානු හිරු එලිය වැඩි යටහ් විජිතයක්.දෙවන ලෝක යුද්දයෙන් පස්සෙ බිරිතානි ඉන්දියානු අදිරදය වෙන්වෙලා ඉන්දියානු අදිරදය පටන්ගත්ත. අපි අද ඉන්දීයානු යටත්ව්ජිතයක්. මුරුසියත් ගුයානාවත් ඉන්දියානු යටත් විජිත.
    We are an Indian colony like Mauritius and Guyana. After the second world war the British-Indian Empire dissolved and the Indian Empire continued.
