The Treacherous Conspiracy of formulating a new constitution to make Sri Lanka a federal and secular state, devolve powers to provinces and establish self rule in North and East did not emerge after this despicable government came into power in 2015.  The plot was hatched in 2002 in Oslo. Norway during the Ranil Wickremasinghe government The tiger terrorist website TamilNet reported on 5th December, 2002 that LTTE and GOSL (Government of Sri Lanka) reached an exploratory agreement. It said the government of Sri Lanka and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam reached an exploratory agreement to explore a solution to end the island’s conflict founded on the principle of internal self determination in areas of historical habitation of the Tamil speaking peoples, based on a federal structure within a united Sri Lanka and Sri Lanka needs a new constitution that would radically transform its polity,” This was stated by Anton Balasingham, addressing a joint press conference at the Radisson Plaza Hotel in downtown Oslo

The arrangement got shelved with the dismissal of the Ranil Wickremasinghe government and once again it got revived with the western, Indian and Tamil diaspoea plans in 2013 spearheaded in Singapore under the title Singapire Principles of 2013” to launch a regime change in Sri Lanka.

Now defunct Tamil News Network.com and the LTTE’s official Website TamilNet.com reported on 23rd and 22nd January, 2015 respectively that right from the Indo-Lanka agreement of 1987 to Oslo Declaration of 2002 and to hitherto unrevealed Singapore Principles of 2013 that brought the Sampanthan polity into a conceptual framework for the recent regime change in Colombo, the external forces are seeking to influence the affairs of the island.  The websites said that the external forces have taken the Eezham Tamils for a ride without securing any concrete and descriptive guarantee from the Sinhala polity. TamilNet publishing the text of the so-called Singapore Principles for the edification of global Tamils said M.A. Sumanthiran, the non-elected national list ITAK parliamentarian and V.T. Thamilmaran, the dean of the Faculty of Law at the University of Colombo were the Tamil representatives from the island while representatives of the Global Tamil Forum (GTF) were representing the Diaspora Tamils at a meeting in Singapore in 2013 when Dr Jayampathy Wickramaratne came with his proposal points to agree upon a conceptual framework aimed at regime change..

The TamilNet also stated that Mangala Samaraweera came as a ‘beggar’ urging Tamil support for regime change and abolition of the executive presidency.

The Website further stated that when Tamil aspirations came for discussion, M.A. Sumanthiran wanted to avoid the mentioning of terms such as Nation and Right to Self Determination in the document, and only the voice of a human rights defender, a Sinhalese, representing the civil society, was in favour of a formula based on the recognition of nationhood to Tamil people with their traditional homeland in the North-East.  The Website said that the document was drafted with the intention of being non-descript, but a consensus was achieved on winning Tamil voters through the TNA for the regime change. It said that a lawyer from Sri Lanka Muslim Congress was also represented at the meeting apart from several other representatives. It said that the meeting was organised by South Africa and was funded by two European countries.

The 10-points agreed between Sumanthiran and the regime changers including Mangala Samaraweera, and named as the Singapore Princioles of  2013 are as follows

  1. In describing the nature of the State what is important is the substance; the labels are secondary.
  2. The Constitution shall be based on basic constitutional principles and values including sovereignty of the people, participatory democracy and supremacy of the Constitution which shall form an unalterable basic structure.
  3. Power sharing shall be on the basis of self-rule and shared-rule within an undivided Sri Lanka.
  4. The Executive Presidency shall be abolished and the form of government shall be Parliamentary.
  5. The pluralist character of Sri Lankan society as well as identities and aspirations of the constituent peoples of Sri Lanka shall be constitutionally recognised.
  6. There shall be a strong and enforceable Bill of Rights consistent with universally accepted norms and standards.
  7. There shall be a separation of powers and an independence of judiciary which includes a Constitutional Court.
  8. Important institutions shall be independent and accountable. Appointments to these and High Posts shall be through a transparent mechanism that provides for a national consensus, example Constitutional Council.
  9. Institutions of the State shall reflect the pluralist character of Sri Lankan society.
  10. The Republic of Sri Lanka shall be a secular state. The Foremost place to Buddhism and equal status to other religions shall be assured.

Stupid thotta baba Sirisena should at least understand now, if he has any brain or sanity to do so, that he was made only a scapegoat to get the objectives of the Tamil separatists achieved and instruct to immediately abandon the obnoxious constitution process, which we doubt that this avaricious fellow will ever do since the Tamil separatists and the accidentally born Sinhalese in the UNP (Union of Notoriois Plunderers) have made arrangements to get his presidential term extended for antoher term without an election.

It is sad to find that the 21 Muslim impotent members of Parliament who are only concerned about getting themselves and their family members rich have not come forward to oppose the constitution despite it would greatly endanger the Muslims in the East and Mannar areas while a new constitution is being formulated to please the 16 MPs of TNA and Mano Ganeshan’s Kallathonis.  Under these circumstances the Muslim Lawyers Associatin has taken the responsibility of raising cudgels against the proposed constitution on behalf of the Muslim community. They have emphasized that Sri Lanka should be a Unitaary State and the term must be stressed in all languages (Sinhala, Tamil and English)..  They point out the word Orumittanadu” in Tamil is not the correct term to describe a unitary State, and the word should be Otraiachchi.” They also state that Articles 1 to 9 of the present Constitution should not be changed. They further state that Provincial Council (PC) should be the highest unit of devolution, subjected to the powers and functions vested with the Central Government and never the Northern Province (NP) and the Eastern Province (EP) should be made a single Province and the present structure for the appointment and the powers and functions of the Governor should be retained.

As per UN statistics 165 countries in the world, out of the 192 UN member countries are countries with Unitary Status abd there are only 27 countries which are Federal States.    As per these statistics 86% of the countries in the world are countries with Unitary Status which have power centred on a central government.  In some of these countries for admnistrativee convenience the powers of the central government are revokably decentralized.  Surf https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federation to find further details.

The 27 countries with federal form of government are governments formed by creating a union with self rule small areas or provinces or a united state.  In such a united/federal state the sovereignty does not belong to the central government alone.  In such countries the sovereignty has been diluted to provide equal or part authority to the provinces or states. In these countries the provinces or state units are not legally bound to implement the responsibilities or decisions of the President, the Parliament or the Central government.

Out of the 165 countries with Unitary Staatus the 5 richest countries are China, Japan, the United Kingdom, France and Italy.  The 5 most populated contries with Unitary Status are China, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Japan and the Philippines.

Some dollar varicious NGO vultures and Tamil slavish pro-separatist elements in Sri Lanka claim that Sri Lankans do not have proper knowledge about world aaffairs and by hanging on to the word Unitary Status they are endangering the future of the country.  These idiots should understand that 86% of the countries in the world are countries with Unitary Staatus forms of government.

These idiots should seriously think about what happened to the Catalonia province of Spain which has the city of famous Barcelona and many other historical places.  On October 27th the provincial governorate of Catalonia declared Catalonia as an independent State delinked from Spain.  Reports said that with this announcement the Catlan national anthem was sung in the Catlan Parliament and throughont the area considered as Catalonia.  Recently a referendum unauthorized by the Central Government of Spain was held in Cataalonia and the majority of the Catlan people voted in favour of Catalonia becoming a separaee country.  A similar referendum was held in Kurdistan area of Iraq also and they too voted for having a separate Kurdistan.

Catalan leaders held the referendum in defiance of the national government

The obnoxious constitution proposal is going to place Sri Lanka also in the predicament faced by Spain and Iraq as a result of going to help the separatist amils.  Do we need to have the same fate in Sri Lanka as well? UNP and SLFP members in the government have the option of going into history as disgraceful traitors of the country by voting for the new constitution or getting glorified as saviours of the country by voting against it.  The choice is yours. Think well, think severl timea before you go for the voting.  It cannot be expected from the JVP hooligans as they have become a disgraceful bunch of pimps who would even sell their own mothers for money.
