An Open letter to the President Maithripala Sirisena.
Posted on February 24th, 2017
Chandrika Kumaratunga had said that when the political parties opposed to President Mahinda Rajapakse were to present a Common Candidate of the Opposition for the Presidential elections of Janury,2015, she was requested to find a person likely to turn traitor to the SLFP and willing to break rank with President Mahinda Rajapakse to be the Opposition Presidential Candidate.
Chandrika Kumaratunga had several choices, but she had to choose someone easily malleable, less conversant in English ,agreeable to their conditions, and will not be intelligent as to pry into the political manoeuvres that will be set up by the Western and Indian secret services to change the Rajapakse regime and take Sri Lanka under the control of the friendly countries of the West, which was in fact a foreign agenda to which Chandrika and Ranil were working. CBK was looking for a fall guy –a sucker….
She says that her choice was you, Mr. President. She argues that, if you as the Secretary General of the SLFP, would be a traitor to the SLFP that made you a respected politician, and to the President of the Party Mahinda Rajapakse who had great trust in you, it would cause a rift in the SLFP dividing the party loyalists some to vote against Mahinda Rajapakse.
Chandrika says that you have a great esteem for her and that you would not refuse any favour she would ask you. She says that she assured you that the western countries and India was with them and you have nothing to fear, and they wanted only your consent and the rest you could safely leave in their hands.
It is sad to tell you that she was looking for a puppet, whose strings she will hold to make you dance to her tune. You perhaps now know that you are still a puppet and it is Chandrika and Ranil who hold the strings. You gave into them from the beginning, to Chandrika through your blind respect and servility, and to Ranil through your gratitude for making you a President.
You were foolish to consent at the very outset to willingly give up the executive powers and be a one term President. For Chandrika, Ranil and even Mangala you were a country bumpkin(godaya) behind whose back they could plan their strategies to carry out the agenda set out by America, European Countries and India.
It was very foolish to have given into CBK and Ranil and politically unintelligent late Sobhita Thero. Incidentally Venerable Sobhitha thero paid the price for betraying Sri Lanka, dying under mysterious circumstances after he explained his disappointment with the Yahapalanaya government he helped to setup.
You knew very well what CBK and Ranil are capable of , as it was you it is said who . handled the Commission report on Batalanda Torture Camp. You were also aware of the mayhem caused by Ranil signing the CFA with the terrorists leader Prabhakaran, and how many deaths it caused until it was rescinded by the President Mahinda Rajapakse.
You are responsible Mr President for all the sins committed by Ranil Wickramasinghe as it was you who made him, 29 times rejected by the people, a Prime Minister.
Mr. President please look around you , what are you in this Yahapalanaya setup. You are only looking after local ma tters , trying hard to win over the hearts of the people. This government has done nothing for the country and the people since you were elected President on the
8th January,2015. Lot of disastrous decisions have been made by Ranil, Chandrika and Mangala, but you get to know of them only when you read the papers, when things have gone out of control and people begin to talk about the damages done by the Yahapalanaya Government.
While you make high sounding Sinhala speeches about poisonless agriculture, Chandrika, Ranil, Mangala make important statements to foreign press and foreign governments that affect Sri Lanka’s global image.
The biggest daylight Robbery the Bond Scam was done after a well planned scheme set up by Ranil, Ravi Karunanayake and Arjuna Mahaendran. You never asked Ranil your Prime Minister why he took over the administration of the Central Bank, when it had always been under the Minister of Finance. You never asked why they appointed a foreigner imported from Singapore as the Governor of the Central Bank.
And when “theft” was completed and the whole world came to know about it, what did you do ?
You meekly asked your Prime Minister to remove Arjun Mahendran from the office of Governor of the Central Bank. Ranil instead of removing him, appointed him as his financial advisor to create 10000 employments.
Why did you leave the matter at rest at that ?
Were you afraid of Ranil Wickramasinghe ?
Arjun Mahendran the non-Sri Lanka is now under the protection of Ranil Wickramasinghe working with his inner group of financial planners- Paskaralingam, and Charitha Ratwatte.
Mr.President , a good President should firstly be a good man. But Mr.President , you were very self centred and egoist therefore in order to become the President you became a traitor to your own political party SLFP that made you a politician. You betrayed the trust the President of the SLFP Mahinda Rajapakse placed on you as the General Secretary of the SLFP.
You are so revengeful Mr. President, you allowed Ranil Wickramasinghe to have his own police the FCID to accuse and take in to custody on flimsy charges Rajapakses and their supporters. Mr. President one cannot understand why you have so much of hatred to Mahinda Rajapakse, when he did no wrong to you, but it was only you who wronged him, and that everyone knows.
You are not a good man, therefore, you are not a good President.
Mr.President, Chandrika, Ranil and Mangala are Agents of the West. It is the West with instructions from the Tamil Dispora that want to weaken the armed forces , until it becomes discouraged and demoralised to the extent that it would not be equal to what it had been before to fight another terrorist resurgence.
Mr.President You are the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of Sri Lanka, the Armed Forces are therefore directly under your charge. Then how is it that Officers of the Armed Forces; specially those in the Intelligent section the backbone of the Armed Force are arrested by the FCID without your consent ? How is it that Chandrika makes criminal charges against the Armed Forces without your consent. ? How was it that Mangala Samaraweera sponsored the American Resolution against the Sri Lanka Armed Forces without having consulted you ?
Mr. President how was it that an Army Major and four soldiers were arrested over the abduction of the journalist Keith Noyahr by the FICD, just before the opening of the Sessions of the Geneva UN Human rights Council. Was it to please the West and the Tamil Diaspora ?
Mr. President do you realise that you are being taken for a ride, and that the real political power in Sri Lanka is not centred around you, but around Chandrika, Ranil and Mangala who guide the mysterious hand that directs the destinies of Sri Lanka ?
Mr.President, while you are busy attending School prize givings and opening Museums in Temples. Chandrika and Mangala and even Wignesvaran are busy informing the Leaders of Western Governments or the foreign press on more important matters concerning the future of Sri Lanka.
Mr. President who really wanted a new Constitution ?
“….Chandrika Kumaratunga told a meeting with the Foreign Correspondents’ Association at her office in Colombo that the immediate priority, which the international community too agreed with, was to establish a National Policy on Reconciliation for which a new Constitution was necessary.”
Responding to a question she pointed out that there was ” no need for foreign judges, if our judiciary can do it properly. It is more important to enact a new constitution than get down judges from abroad.”
Chandrika Kumaratunga speaking to a Foreign Correspondent’s Association said, “There is a lot of sexual abuse still going on by officials, even Tamil officials ……Even to sign a document, they abuse the women and of course some people in the (armed) forces” continue to commit sexual abuse. ”
Mr. President, it is not right that you allow this insults to your office by Chandrika Kumaratunga speaking to foreign correspondents to abuse our own Armed Forces of which you are the Commander in Chief. She had further said that, “…. some officers of the Financial Crimes Investigation Division (FCID) had complained of attempts by agents of the Rajapaksa family of having attempted to bribe them with big sums of money, but they had refused the offers.”
This is a silly accusation without any proof. It is your duty to stop her make these false accusations, it is not her duty to do so.
Isn’t this washing dirty linen in public ?
Mr. President, Chandrika Kumaratunga speaks like a woman in a fish market, which is an insult to our country, more so as she had been a former President of Sri Lanka. It is in your own interest to ask her to “guard her mouth” at least when speaking to foreign correspondents. You are the President of the SLFP, Chandrika speaks as she is the “boss”. It was reported that,
“ President Kumaratunga said the Joint Opposition which is rallying behind Kurunegala district MP and former president Mahinda Rajapaksa was splitting the SLFP and should be stopped.
“I sacked many people for much less than this (supporting another party) when I was the president of the party,” Kumaratunga told the Foreign Correspondents’ Association this week.
She said the Rajapaksa faction of the SLFP included the “biggest murderers and crooks” and they should be removed from the SLFP.”
Mr. President you should be the arbitrator to decide what is correct and what is not correct in even what the Prime Minister’s FCID is doing arbitrarily by arresting persons of previous government to perhaps please the Prime Minister. Wimal Weerawansa had been arrested and imprisoned for misuse of 46 vehicles, where as Azad Sally at a TV interview said Lakshman Kiriella has taken 146 vehicles to Kandy for the use of his campaign workers, and no body has questioned this irregular use of government vehicles by Kiriella. Can their be two laws one for the members of the Previous government and another for the members of Yahapalanaya ?
It had been the same with Rajitha Senaratne one of the most disagreeable men in the Yahapalanaya Cabinet. He asks the FCID to go for the big fish, when he himself is accused for corruption. A case filed against him by the JVP has not been taken up for investigation. You should ask Senaratne to allow himself investigated by the FCID for the accusations made against him.
Mr. President are you aware of extensive deforestation that is going on. What action are you going to take to stop this:
“Specific instances of forest destruction and proposed deforestation by the Mahaweli Authority were brought into the spotlight by the Director of the Environment Conservation Trust (ECT), Sajeewa Chamikara.
Here are the areas under threat due to the Mahaweli L zone, according to him:
* In Mullaitivu, 6,000 acres of jungle, bordering the Andankulam Forest Reserve and the Kokilai Sanctuary are being cleared and destroyed. A majority of those who have got land in this area are big businessmen and not small farmers.
* Nearly 32,000 acres of land in the Padaviya Forest Reserve are being cleared for potential development. This Forest Reserve covering 48,451 acres was declared by Gazette No. 1793/21 on January 18, 2013, but soon after, 31,875 acres were de-gazetted by Gazette No. 1808/4 on April 29, 2013. * Around 22,500 acres of forest in the Medirigiriya-Bisopura area have been handed over for development.
A few other areas where forest destruction is taking place:
* Around 20,000 acres of forests in Welikanda have been handed over to big businessmen for massive commercial cultivations.* Around 5,000 acres from the Karunkalipuram Forest Reserve have been released for the settlement of people.* There are major intrusions into the Proposed Elephant Management Reserve in Hambantota, in the form of large-scale soil excavation, metal-quarrying, setting up of solar power plants and commercial crop cultivations.
Mr.President , you are not informed of what is going on in the country. You are not consulted on major issues concerning Sri Lanka.
It is time you wake up and take action to reverse the situation in which Ranil-Chandrika-Mangala Samaraweera are progressively destroying and selling Sri Lanka to foreign countries.
Mr.President, now even the UN Special Rapporteur wants more land held by the armed forces released to Tamils, please speak and ask them to mind their own business without interfering into internal affairs of the Country. That is what President Mahinda Rajapakse told these interferers.
Mr. President please do not remain imprisoned in your inferiority complex, showing your gratitude to Ranil Wickramasinghe and your high esteem to Chandrika Kumaratunga. You should take over the reigns of government now or you will never be able to save what remains of Sri Lanka, or else you too may perish with it.
Mr.President you should change your Prime Minister and form a new Government. You should bury your false pride and your hatred towards Mahinda Rajapakse and his supporters. You can be the saviour of Sri Lanka which faces today the greatest danger in its history, a danger of division both territorially and communally. It would be yours and Mahinda Rajapakse’s joint efforts that would help to regain Sri Lanka and bring back peace and security.
