Oh ! My God !! What has Yahapalanaya done to Sri Lanka.
Posted on May 14th, 2017

By Charles.S.Perera

What has become of Sri Lanka we had  the day before 8th January,2015 ? What has the change to Yahapalanaya  meant to my poor Lanka?

The people have gained nothing since the change over from the Government of President Mahinda Rajapakse  to the government of President Maithripala Sirisena  pretentiously called  Yahapalanaya, but the Parliamentarians have got much. Most of them are plush , taken more weight, and ply in expensive limousines. They talk a lot but work a little , and pretends to be doing a lot.

The Yahapalanaya that came with a streamlined 100 day programme has ended up with no programme.  The stalwarts of the Yahapalanaya were Ranil Wickramasinghe and his UNP buddies. They thought that once they are in power the West will land here bringing  with them the much wanted US dollars, British sterling pounds and German marks and they can turn their back to China which would be an added incentive for the West to dump their monies the more here to invest in every industry under the sun.

Ranil Wickramasinghe  told China that Sri Lanka can do without them. Ranil Wickramasinghe and his predominantly UNP Government  told China that they  do not want China to go ahead with the  Colombo Port City, as it has been planned badly.

They put in place a master planner Champika Ranawaka to  re build the Colombo City with a larger land area. Ravi Karunanayake an experienced money handler who occupied the  money deposited with him by Raja Rajaratnam imprisoned in USA, was made the Minister of Finance. He thought he was turning out the best budget Sri Lanka ever had. But it soon fizzled out to be a no-budget” being passed, re cast and re-passed  in Parliament several times and still with lot of un patched  holes”. But yet the West named him the best Finance Minister in Asia.

Ranil Wickramasinghe appointed his prized genius Mangala Samaraweera as the Foreign Minister  to rope in the West to make Sri Lanka a Singapore”, as  he had already recruited a Singapore Banking genius to come with his magic wand to make the Sri Lanka Central Bank lay golden eggs”.

Mangala Samaraweera the prodigy” trusted to make miracles was to use his charm to win over the West at the snap of a finger.

Mangala Samaraweera went to Geneva without hesitation and sponsored  along with America the worst resolution USA had brought against Sri Lanka to take the Sri Lanka Armed Forces to a tribunal charged for war crimes, which had been long delayed due to lack of enthusiasm of the Previous Mahinda Rajapakse Government to allow  USA to pass such a resolution. Yahapalanaya sponsored that resolution hoping that the West in recognition would send hordes of investors to Sri Lanka to invest in development projects.

Having not received any encouraging signals from the West for the development of Sri Lanka other than lot of applause for following democracy to the letter and taking care of the interests of the minority Tamils, the Yahapalanaya Leadership thought that they may probe the possibility of turning to  Japan as an alternative investor for the development of Sri Lanka. But Japan  after giving Ranil Wickramasinghe an honorary degree, seems to have gone silent on investing on any development project of value  in Sri Lanka.

Now Yahapalanaya is like the cat that evacuated his bowels  on the rock. It has no idea as to what it should do next,  to make good the change it  promised to the people after defeating the  previous government of President Mahinda Rajapakse.

The Yahapalanaya then did what  some dogs do. A dog tries to bark away a bigger dog, and when the bigger dog shows his teeth and the claws  the aggressive small dog runs away, and later, on second thought, hides its tail between its legs  and crawls back to the stronger dog that chased him away.

Yahapalanaya that belittled and insulted China, stopping it from continuing with the Port City project for which the President of China Xi Jinping himself came to Sri Lanka to  lay the foundation stone, is now going back to China seeking their help. Yahapalanaya has at last realised that it  is only China that still helps the  developing countries  and not the rich Western friends of whom the Yahapalanaya spoke so highly and depended on making the people of Sri Lanka understand that they made  a better choice in  replacing the previous regime of Mahinda Rajapakse.

It is time that the Yahapalanaya  now learns from its mistakes and understand that President Mahinda Rajapakse was after all  a good man who did not take revenge by taking up the Batalanda file to punish Ranil Wickramasinghe or the Waters Edge Land  Transaction to embarrass and bring disrepute to Chandrika Kumaratunga.

Now these Yahapalana Cats having done  what they should not have done on the rock  are glum faced without a clue as to what to do next. Not having received the expected response from the Western investors, or those from Japan, Ranil Wickramasinghe has turned in a big way to India.

But India is not ready to  aid Sri Lanka for its Buddhist or Ashokan connection, but the Indian Prime Minster knowing the failure of the Yahapalanaya of Sri Lanka to have attracted investors from the West, from Japan and from China knows that it has no alternative  now but to accept what ever is offered by India.  India however knows that what little they would give they will take back with  multiple interest for the benefit of India.

They invited the Prime Minister Modi of India to inaugurate the UN Wesak Day in Sri Lanka. But Modi made it an occasion to lecture on importance of India for Sri Lanka’s security, and that the population of Sri Lanka is an indivisible part of the 1.25 billion Indians in the neighbourhood.

It is not a good prospect as Sri Lanka cannot depend on India for security, as we saw it when Sri Lanka was engaged in  military operations to eliminate terrorism. India was not very dependable then as the  80 million Tamils at India’s southern tip dictated  Indian Central Government’s stand on the question of terrorism in Sri Lanka. Therefore can we again trust India for Sri Lanka’s security ?

India has a pressing unemployment problem.  Hence India is all out to sign the ETCA as it would be a solution  for its unemployment problem. India would like to annex the North of Sri Lanka and send  excessive Tamil population to North, and for that a Hanuman bridge and a railway to Trincomalee, would provide a passage for illegal immigrants coming  from India.

Yahapalanay Government is being fooled by every one- the West wanted a regime change in Sri Lanka and now that it has happened the West will pay only lip service without binding them selves  for any sort of long term  engagement to develop Sri Lanka. India needs Sri Lanka to solve at least some of  its unsolved social  problems of its 1.25 billion population.

Modi had said  that India  would  build houses for the State Tamils and the Tamils of the North. That would give  Sri Lanka a  greater headache with the Tamils building a  greater  allegiance to India above that of Sri Lanka. That would be a wastage of all those concessions made to Tamils for reconciliation.

In addition to those political problems created by India, Yahaplanaya  is on the verge of the sale of Trincomalee oil Tanks, and  the Eastern Terminal of the Colombo Port to India . In the south Yahapalanaya is making arrangements to lease  for twice 90 years, the Magampura Port and 20 thousand acres of land to China.

Yahapalanaya cannot fool the Chinese as by stopping the work of the Colombo Port City , Chinese Companies must have lost considerable amount of money, in stopping work and allowing the machines to rust  and unworkable, and re starting work after a long loss of time. The Yahapalanaya Government had been acting foolishly without any planning from the day one of the election of  Maithriplala Sirisena on the 8th January, 2015.

The foolish euphoria after the election victory blinded  the yayapalanaya leaders from acting wisely with a planned programme of development. Only thing they thought of doing was a negative programme of  revenge and hatred  to punish the Rajapaksas and all those connected with the previous government. This was not a wise thing to have been undertaken , and the result is an utter political failure.

The end result  is  today Sri Lanka is like a rudderless boat  in a vast rough sea with signs of an on coming storm.

    Charles, what you say here about India’s intention of sending the unemployed millions of Indians to Sri Lanka, building a bridge to make easy passage to Trinco is a well known fact and only the Yahapalanaya traitors do not care. It is obvious these traitors need India’s support to survive and My3 is so scared to say NO to India as he made a dirty deal with India and the Tamil diaspora to become the president.

    It is also obvious Modi has made it very clear that Mahinda Rajapaksa is the real leader of Sri Lanka by meeting him for a lengthy meeting to discuss the bankrupt economy of Sri Lanka and invite him to India.

  2. Leela Says:

    Ever since Ranil edged out Mahinda on the back of an unknown jockey Sirisena with lies, deceit and false promises, prime minister RanilW concentrated on thieving, fooling the nation and doing every dirty trick on the book to ready himself to elect as the president of Sri Lanka in 2020. The manner in which he appeases Tamils and Muslims, even fools could see that the man is banking almost all Tamils & Muslim vote (95% of 25%) and a fraction of the Sinhalese vote (33% of 75%) to sail pass the winning post in 2020 presidential elections. Along the way however, he has upset all the Sinhalese save (green blooded) UNP cohorts. Even they themselves are about to revolt. Being an absolute sycophant of the neocolonialists, as Charles says, Ranil has upset the Chinese dragon beyond recovery. In the home front too he has made unrecoverable economic blunders, no amount of lies is enough to float him alive. Now that the rats start jumping his ship, we can see him sink in the very near future. May the triple gem save Sri Lanka.

    Not just RUN-NIL even MR is in the race to WIN MODI’s blessings.

    Forget about SCRAPPING 13 amendment, ETCA, Chunnel, etc.

    ALL our politicians are the same. ONLY fools think changing underwear will cure the GONOHREA suffered by the nation.

  4. Leela Says:

    Lorenzo, you guys have shown MR at the last presidential election that modern day politics is not a straight or honest game. There’re certain realities. We have a wild 10,000 kg bull next door. Hence, however much we oppose, SCRAPPING 13 amendment in full is not a realty. Looks as if MR is playing a different ball game this time around. Do we have any choice? With Gota as president, I feel ETCA and Hanuman bridge is very unlikely to materialize.

  5. Senerath Says:

    Reporting from Sri lanka.

    There is not much change I could see before and after MR. Despite so much outcry here in Lankaweb condemning Gonpalanaya, business is as usual here in Sri lanka.
    People are fed up with ALL politicians. If someone thinks MAY DAY rally crowds prove MR wining landslide, he/she is just a foreigner. Galle Face people were simply having fun ( despite that unfortunate heat stroke related deaths).

    What I see is a new State of India , not Sri Lanka. ( More so in cities). You can blame Gonpalanaya and bring back MR somehow but that will not bring us Sinhale back, for sure. I am convinced now.

    Defeating UNP will not be easy. People are fed up but not against UNP alone. There is no reason for them to be against UNP alone because ground realities prove that the two governments ( I am taking about 2015 and now) are very much alike.
    No one raised black flags. No one interested in 13A. No one interested in Sinhale. Country is run by foreigners.

  6. SA Kumar Says:

    Looks as if MR is playing a different ball game this time around- Leela agreed with you.

    But RSS Modi not easy man to fool as He had bad experience (13 plus BS) with MR , let’s wait & see end game.

    ඉන්දියානු පරපෝසිත් මහත්ම ගාන්දි නැමැත්තා 1927 ඇවිල්ල උතුර හා කන්ද උඩරට ඇවිදලා සිහින මවාගෙන ගියා. මෝඩි අදිරදයා දෙවරක් ඇවිත් සැබෑවූ සිහින අමතා ගියා.
    ඉන්දියානු අදිරද මෝඩි ඇවිල්ල ඉන්දියානු වැසියන් අමතලා ගියා. අපි සින්හල මුස්ලිම් හා කිතුනුවන් සමග කෙලගන්නවා.අපි අපිත් කෙලගන්නවා. ඒ අතරේ ඉන්දියානු පරපෝසිතයො සින්හල සන්හාරය කරගෙන යනව.
    Gandhi came in 1927 and dreamt about it. Modi saw the realized dreams. Jai Hind. Nonviolent Genocide of Sinhalese.
    Majority Sinhalese be they are Buddhists, Christians or Muslims should unite and stand up to the Indian Empire.

    Yahapalanaya has been installed by the Indian Empire in its colony of Sri Lanka.

  9. Kumari Says:

    The only hope for Sri Lanka is the Sinhalese uniting. That is the only hope for Tamils. Muslims and others too. Tamils and Muslims don’t know that they are being used by a few (so called) leaders in their communities to play world politics. At the end, it would be the Sinhalese who would save the average Tamil and Muslim too.

    When Sirisena was asked why he appointed Ranil as PM, his response was “That is what the International Community wants”.

  10. Lorenzo Says:

    The MOST FOOLISH cabinet reshuffle!! Mangala to FINANCE MINISTRY and Karunkaya to FOREIGN MINISTRY!!


    Sirisena knows COMMUNISTS like Vasu and even SLFPers have respect for BERNARD ZOYSA who’s the GRANDFATHER of Mangala. Sira hopes to USE their respect for Bernard towards Mangala.

    Mangala knows nothing about FINANCE and Karinkaya knows nothing about FOREIGN AFFAIRS.

  11. SA Kumar Says:

    “That is what the International Community wants”.- Honest answer from genuine Bhuddist Sinhela Kirama sevaka !

  12. Fran Diaz Says:

    UNP led Yahap program was : “CRASH & SELL” (Plan A).

    Now that Hillary Clinton is not the US Prez, Plan A is scuttled ? So, now what is Plan B ?
    Part I of the CRASH program has already happened with the Central Bank scam.
    Is Part II : CRASH the CONSTITUTION, and over empower the Provinces ?

    MASS CONFUSION is a must for the Yahap CRASH programs to happen !
    Stay steady. Stay with the CONSTITUTION OF LANKA.

  13. Fran Diaz Says:

    Just visualize the LANKA CONSTITUTION minus the 13-A & 19-A ! Wonderful !!
