The history of UNP’s deceptions, betrayals and oppressions Part V

The evil trio the United States, Britain and the hegemonic India pumped in millions of Dollars, Euros and Indian rupees to finance their malicious plan to depose Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa’s populist regime. The Tamil diaspora which was eagerly waiting for an opportunity to take vengeance from President Mahinda Rajapaksa for dhattering their Eelam dream by vanquishing the LTTE terrorists also cheerfully volunteered with funds and other resources joined the evil trio to promote the plan.

Accordingly, clandestine negotiations were held between the UNP, the TNA and the Tamil diaspora on the role to be played by them to achieve their goal, and these talks ended in Singapore in December 2012 with a secret tripartite agreement signed by the antagonist of the Sinhala nation Mangala Samaraweera on behalf of the UNP, M.A.Sumanthiran, the devoted separatist on behalf of the TNA and an unnamed representative of the Global Tamil Forum on behalf of the Tamil diaspora.

A scenario was created in Sri Lanka saying that Sri Lanka does not need an Executive Presidential system and a common candidate should be fielded in the next presidential election to urge the people to vote for the abolition of the Executive Presidential System.  Ven. Maduluwawe Sobhita Thero spearheaded this campaign and Rathana Thero and the Jathika Hela Urumaya extensively supported this move. Several newly formed groups nurtured by foreign capital went into widespread action by holding regular news conferences, TV interviews and publishing media articles and media releases promoting the new campaign in the pretext of abolishing the Executive Presidential system with the hidden and prime objective of deposing Mahinda Rajapaksa regime.

In the mean time the old hag Chandrika who has a perpetual animosity towards Mr. Mahinda Rajapakse due to a comment he made in Matara about her at a SLFP pocket meeting saying that she was the ‘bitch’ who destroyed the SLFP and because of the ceaseless jealousy she had against Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa for vanquishing the terrorist menace and liberating the country and for implementing a huge number of development projects that had never been dreamt of implementing in this country by the previous leaders including her. Following her first visit to India after the new government came into power this old hag told the Indian media that she took the responsibility of finding a common candidate and she had a very difficult task in this connection because most of the Ministers, MPs and members of the SLFP were either thieves or murderers.  She said that she was successful in getting the consent of Maithripala Sirisena to come forward as the common candidate and added that all her conversations with and persuasion of Sirisena were carried out through Viber technology in order to prevent any leakage of the plan until the desired moment.

Meanwhile, the spiteful UNP having a history of telling blatant lies, misleading the people and giving false promises spread an enormous amount of misinformation, canards, fictions and fabricated stories against President Mahinda Rajapaksa, his brothers, sons, some selected Ministers of the Mahinda Rajapaksa government, certain MPs and even against certain high ranking government officials.  Assistance of certain Buddhist monks, clerics and leaders of organisations belonging to other religions and minority communities were also obtained to foster divisions in the country and launch an anti-Mahinda campaign.

Their concocted stories included that Mr. Mahinda Rajapksa has stolen government funds amounting to around 18 Million U.S. Dollars and deposited that money in foreign banks (alleged by Mr. Mangala Samaraweera), Mahinda Rajapakse children have golden horses, Rajapakse children have brought several highly expensive Lambogini vehicles, they fly to Nuwara Eliya to receive training in horse riding, Namal Rajapakse has a deposit of several million dollars in a Bank in Dubai, Yoshita Rajapaksa has tortured and killed Wasim Thajudeen over a love affair, Mahinda Rajapakse has hidden several million rupees worth of Gold in certain lands in Weeraketiya and in Colombo, Mahinda Rajapaksa has received huge commissions from the contractors of Southern and Katunayake Expressways, Port City project, Hambantota Harbour project, Mattala Airport project, Lotus Tower project and from all the other ongoing and completed projects. They said that the cost for the construction of a kilometre of the Expressway built by Mahinda Rajapakse was so high and it could have been built cheaper even by using gold as construction material. They also said that Mahinda Rajapaksa was responsible for creating religious strife and communal disturbances in the country.

These canards were mainly centred on President Mahinda Rajapakse and his children because they wanted mainly to project him as a great criminal duping the nation, a communalist determined to suppress minorities and a rogue swindling the wealth of the country.

While these activities were going on they also clandestinely prepared the election manifesto and a programme called ‘100 days programme’ to be presented by the so-called common candidate, and the Tamil diaspora mustered TNA and the IOTs on the need to vote en bloc for the so-called common candidate.  The JVP handsomely rewarded by the trio of conspirators and the Tamil diaspora as disclosed by the late Mr. Somawansa Amerasinghe also carried out an extensive campaign to make their hooligans to vote against Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa and for a change of government. They too spread many canards about Mr. Mahinda Rajapakse to mislead the Sinhala voters.

Only the UNP, JVP, TNA, and leaders of other gangs were aware beforehand that Maithripala Sirisena was destined to come forward as the common candidate.  Accordingly, on the night of 21st November 2014, the turncoat Maithripapa Sirisena went to the Temple Trees and had an egg hoppers dinner with the President but gave no indication of his plans for the next day.  Prior to this egg hoppers dinner there were rumours in the media circles about his intended crossover and he denied all such rumours.

Demonstrating his shameless and spineless character Sirisena called for a media conference on the 22nd morning and announced that he was coming forward as the common candidate and the UNP leader Mr. Ranil Wickremasinghe will be made the Prime Minister in the new government as a reward for his dedicated efforts to change the Rajapaksa regime.  Those who were functioning till that time as SLFPers, the double agents such as Rajitha Senaratne, Duminda Dissanayake, M.K.D.S. Gunawardene, and national list MP Rajiva Wijesinghe associated Sirisena at this notorious media conference. At this media conference Sirisena’s so-called manifesto and the 100 days programme were also released and just ponder  how it could be possible to release these document even within a period of 24 hours.

Subsequently, many other Ministers and MPs in the government, who were recipients of handsome rewards of foreign funds also joined the Sirisena band wagon and some others were canvassed to switch over promising that they will be paid handsome rewards indicating that such rewards were waiting for them in Singapore.  Several Ministers and MPs accepting these offers went to Singapore and joined the Sirisena band wagon immediately upon their return and I remember that MP Faizer Mustafa was one of them.  If they claim that this offer of rewards was false why they had to go to Singapore all of a sudden and express allegiance to Sirisena immediately upon their return? I was told by certain people that it was the infamous Arjun Mahendran who handled these transactions in Singapore.

The election was closely contested with Sirisena receiving 6.2 million votes and Mr. Mahinda Rajapakse receiving 5.8 million votes.  The 6.2 million votes cast for Sirisena included approximately 400,000 votes of JVP which made the difference between the two candidates.  The election clearly proved that the majority in the South voted against the change of government and after 2 years of misrule and non performance by the government it has become very hard to find a person in the South who had voted for the government.

Sirisena keeps on telling lies, fairy tales, Ranil keeps on giving all sorts of promises, and the people continue to suffer unbearable hardships and even unable to feed their children while government Ministers get super luxury vehicles and all forms of other perks and privileges. Two years have passed with the development of the country at a standstill, agricultural production drastically reduced and the threat of a looming food crisis haunting the country. Experts predict that the people will be forced to eat jack and croton leaves very soon. During the last 2 years the inept government has carried out only a witch hunt on Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa and his family members, on members and supporters of the joint opposition and against some Buddhist monks such as Ven. Uduwe Dhammaloka thero with fictitious and bizarre allegations. Immediately after the government came into power

Ranil Wickunanasinghe and some other UNP leaders boasted that foreign investors would now come in queues to Sri Lanka and invest in all sorts of projects, but what actually happened was despite Ranil Wickunanasinghe and Ravi Karunanayake visiting several western countries and begging for foreign investments many of those who had already invested in our share market have withdrawn their funds due to uncertainty in the local stock market and making it to collapse. The one million jobs promised for our youth have become another promise identical to the infamous gold bracelet promise. Drug trafficking and underworld killings which were unheard of under Defence secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa have become rampant.

Alas, what a disaster that has befallen on a country that was marching towards becoming the wonder nation of Asia recording continuous economic growths of over 7%  for several years!

    What a chronicle of the true nature of today’s UNP! One can easily see after the JRJ era where the brainy and educated have shifted to and where the rot is left.
