    Ex-President Mahinda Rajapaksa and Opposition Leader Rajavarothayam Sampanthan Meet Without Aides to Hold Significant Discussions.
    31 August 2017, 2:34 pm

    Former Sri Lankan President and Kurunegala District MP Mahinda Rajapaksa and Leader of the Opposition and Trincomalee district MP Rajavarothayam Sampanthan have engaged in significant political discussions at a one on one meeting without aides this week.

    The 45 minute meeting took place at Mahinda Rajapaksa’s residence in Colombo on August 29th following an invitation extended by the former president to the Tamil National alliance(TNA) leader for a one on one meeting to discuss current political matters.

    The Opposition leader responded positively and met with the former president for in depth discussions conducted cordially. Both leaders engaged in closed door talks without any others being present.

    After the political discussions concluded, former first lady Ms. Shiranthi Rajapaksa made her appearance to provide refreshments and exchange pleasantries with Mr. Sampanthan.

    Though both leaders remained tight -lipped about talks it is learnt that most of the talks focused on the envisaged new Constitution and the Constitution making process. Though no conclusive decisions were reached both leaders had apparently engaged in frank discussions on the topic ,it is learnt.

    Mr. Sampanthan had explained at the discussions that there was hope of the proposed Constitution bringing about greater power sharing arrangements while ensuring the unity of the country in an indivisible Sri Lanka. He said that unlike the 1972 and 1978 Constitutional exercises the Tamil people were participating fully in the making of this Constitution. The Constitution would be promulgated only after obtaining the consent of the people of Sri Lanka at a referendum. For this the cooperation of all major political parties was necessary. As such Mr. Sampanthan pointed out that the former President being a responsible political leader of great stature , had a duty and responsibility towards the country in cooperating positively in the Constitution making exercise.

    Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa said that he appreciated Mr. Sampanthan’s viewpoint about the proposed new Constitution. However the former President stated that there were certain political problems and issues confronting him in the current constitution making exercise as conducted by the Sirisena-Wickremesinghe Government. He himself had certain ideological reservations about some of the aspects of the Constitution- in – the – making emphasised Mr. Rajapaksa. The ex-president who is the De-Facto Leader of the group of MP’s known as the Joint Opposition also said there were further constraints due to the different opinions held by his political allies on Constitutional matters.

    However both Mr. Rajapaksa and Mr. Sampanthan concurred that further efforts should continue to transcend and overcome these political impediments and obstacles and evolve a viable Constitution acceptable to all shades of political opinion and all sections of the people. Both agreed that this preliminary round of talks could serve as a forerunner to more rounds of discussions in the future.

    It was also hoped that a satisfactory approach towards the question could be fashioned tactically with the involvement of other political parties and groups in the future. A second meeting would be held in September.

    It is learnt that a meeting between Mr. Rajapaksa and Mr. Sampanthan had been in the pipeline for several weeks. The move was triggered off when both Mr. Rajapaksa and Mr.Sampanthan participated at a book launch event. Both leaders had expressed a desire to hold discussions among themselves at the event. Thereafter Hambantota District MP and Mahinda’s eldest son Namal Rajapaksa welcomed the move and had worked behind the scenes to bring about such a meeting.

    It is premature to speculate about the potential results and future course of related events of the Mahinda Rajapaksa- Rajavarothayam Sampanthan meeting at this juncture. Political observers however opine that the positve interaction between both leaders needs to be further enhanced with greater vigour and enthusiam in the days to come.

    Looks like advanced stages of Parkinson’s decease. The other one has more dangerous Alzimer’s decease the way forgets the past.
    We all ar eprone to old age and sickness, that is not unavoidable. Have they done enough to get favourable births in 10 years time ?

    Excessive TREACHERY and GRAND THEFT resulting in an unshakeable FEAR that keeps him awake sweating barrels at night, has spiralled into early incoordination of the extremities and advanced bladder weakness. It is all leaking out through the you-know-what.

    40-years of unmitigated political SKULDUGGERY achieving NOTHING but ABJECT FAILURE, and HANGING on in the hope that someday, somehow, he can engineer the ULTIMATE PLOT in coots with his Motherland’s ENEMIES to become the Chief Executive before the GRIM REAPER ARRIVES to recall him, will do that to anyone, as it certainly it has done to this SPINELESS TREACHEROUS NINCOMPOOP!

    Shall we call it the WAGES OF SIN?

    Vaya-Con-Dios Ranil-Baba …. take your 40-THIEVES with you to HELL!

    Not getting old only he is getting old and haggard and become Ali Baba by helping and abetting thieves in his party. This damn liar cannot be compared to our great President Mahinda Rajapaksa at all. He is nothing but a loser and a traitor to the country. He and his party should be eliminated completely this time in the next elections. He is the mastermind behind the central bank daylight robbery according to the newspapers. If proved he should be sent to gallows without pardon.

  6. NAK Says:

    The old fox Sampanthan is not cunning enough to fool a shrewd leader like MR. He only wants MR’s support for a referendum. He knows very well that they will lose it but then he can take it to the international community and ask them to intervene saying now we have proof that the Sinhala people will never give us our rights democratically.

    Picture reminds you a mouse and a lion. Traitor chief die hard catholic token Buddhist Bay Gal Karaya Mega Thief
    Batalande Wadakaya Pol Pot [email protected] wickramaSinhalakiller is shrinking by the day. He is getting smaller and smaller
    and there are rumours that he got a cancer. While we do not wish that even on an enemy, won’t be surprised if he has got the decease. The reason Wadakaya went to Singapore and then to US, is for the treatments for it.

    Traitor chief Batalande Wadakaya has done irreparable damage to Buddhism, Sri Lanka and the Sinhalese race. He
    is a serial killer of Sinhalese and gets away with murder every time thanks to the C brigade and the christian west who shields him for the sterling work he does for them. You don’t have to be Einstein to see the pathetic state of the traitor low life and we only pity the Wadakaya. Hope he will disappear soon before the traitor low life break up our Motherland.
