Make Provincial Council Elections a Referendum Against Sirisena –Ranil Government.
Posted on December 21st, 2017

By Charles.S.Perera

It appears that this so called Yahapalanaya  government cannot be removed until 2020, but we can perhaps force it to change by showing its unpopularity amoung the people, by electing Provincial Council candidates from the Podujana Peramuna.

Podujana Peramuna represents the original SLFP of SWRD Bandaranayake. Podujana Peramuna also has the parliamentarians from the previous Mahinda Rajapakse Government which had contributed to the development of Sri Lanka into a modern country despite the continued braying by the Yahapalanaya of corruption.

We will go on to  see why President Sirisena’ SLFP and Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe’s  UNP are neither people friendly, nor are they capable of  developing the country. But people see how under their leadership the country is backsliding from where it was before January,2015, towards being a failed state with no future. The only prospect of for the country under them is its being territorial broken up,  and communally separated.

The JVP which also  helped to bring into power the SLFP-UNP joint yahpalanaya has now become its bitter critic to bluff the people into believing that they are the best alternative to rule the Provincial Councils,  or the Country after the failure of  the SLFP and the UNP as rulers.

The JVP  politicians who make the biggest rumpus, to deliver nothing have not won the trust of the ordinary people. JVP had  been working incessantly for the continuation of the disastrous policies of UNP,  therefore the people should  not vote for them at the Provincial Council election.

Now let us see what we the Sri Lankans have to do today with the Local Government elections in the Agenda ?

Lets us see why  we should vote against the Provincial Council Candidates put forward by the Political Parties which compose   Sirisena Ranil Yahapalanaya Government.

Sirisena-Ranil Yahapalanaya Government has denied for more than two and a half years the democratic right of the people  to have their own elected representatives to help them in their every day needs at provincial and village levels.  These political parties which  make up the  so called  Yahapalanaya-SLFP, UNP, JVP,SLMC,JHU,TNA etc.  have no  right to present their representatives at  provincial and village levels as they too  would only bring about the same disaster they have brought  to the country at Parliamentary level ?

Do our people at provincial and village levels  really know what Maithripala  Sirisena-Ranil Wickramasinghe have done to Sri Lanka since 8th January,2015, or are they still listening only  to the  horrors these Yahapalanaya Champions say that had been done to Sri Lanka by the President Mahinda Rajapakse ?

But the peoples of every community, despite the ranting of their political leaders know that they  would not have seen the change Sri Lanka went through from 2005 to 2014 under Mahinda Rajapakse. And they also know what negative effect the development of Sri Lanka faced after the election of  Sirisena-Ranil Yahapalanaya. The Yahapalanaya  rule during the period 2015 to 2017 had been an utter failure, without a singly development project they can say they have undertaken and completed.

President Sirisena keeps ordering the Armed Forces to vacate the land they occupy in the North and East and hands them over to the Tamils to facilitate reconciliation, while Wigneswaran refuses to allow Sinhala refugees to go back to their lands in the North, and Sumanthiran damands the  removal of  Buddhism  from State protection and  write a new Constitution making Sri Lanka a secular country .

Under these circumstances where  is reconciliation ?

It is evident that Wigneswaran, Sivajilingam, Sumanthiran and the rest do not want  reconciliation. Therefore why should we allow Sirisena and Ranil to sell  in the pretex of reconciliation, the Sinhala  Buddhist Culture , their  religion and all that rightly belong to them to please the Tamils.

That is why it is imperative that the people show through their vote  at the Provincial Council Elections, that they do not want  the Yahapalanaya Government of Sirisena and Ranil decide the future of Sri Lanka and its people.

President Sirisena takes every opportunity to accuse the former President Mahinda Rajapakse   for some fraud or another . Sirisena now makes a big issue of  the sale of 10 acres of land to Sangrilla Hotel shifting the Sri Lanka Army Head Quarters from Colombo Fort making Colombo unsafe, while he had allowed the sale of the Hambanthota harbour and thousands of acres of prime land to China.

The danger to Colombo may come again from the terrorists in the North or the sleeping terrorists encouraged by Wigneswaran the new Prabhakaran of the North .”– The means to challenge such a threat would be  by keeping a larger numbers of military camps in the North and East. But instead of that President Maithripala Sirisena  continues to disband military camps in the North and distribute the land amoung the people.

But Sirsena does not seem to know  that when the Army Head Quarters was removed from Colombo Fort, Mahinda Rajapakse  had already started  to construct  at Pelawatte using the money received from the sale of the land to Sangrilla, a Sri Lanka Defence Head Quarters worthy of Sri Lanka’s  terrorist war winning heroic Armed Forces.

Unfortunately  the construction of  new Head Quarters  for the  Armed Forces  was stopped on Rajitha Seanaratne’s accusation of a financial Fraud. They have still failed to find evidence of such fraud but the construction work of the Head Quarters at Pelwatta have come to stop.

Maihripala Sirisena- Ranil Wickramasinghe  SLFP UNP joint Government do not speak for Buddhists or Buddhism as it affects negatively their reconciliation process with the Tamils. This absurd reconciliation  is the demand of the friends of Yahapalanaya- USA , the West and Zeid Ra’ad Al-Hussein the HC UNHRC.

Recently the USAmbassador had even said that Sri Lanka should have a Federal Constitution !!!

UNP from D.S.Senanayake down to Ranil Wickramasinghe are not supporters of Buddhism. On this it is worth reading what Janaka Perera had written in an article to Lankaweb on the 20th December,2017.

Mettananda noticed that the Prime Minister D.S. Senanayake’s Government was neither prepared to give Government patronage to Buddhism as in the pre-colonial days nor was it keen to give to the Buddhists the same rights the Christians enjoyed in all spheres of society. Had the UNP rulers been far-sighted enough to enforce at least the latter policy, this country would have been spared of the many upheavals that followed. It is very unfortunate that UNP election manifestos failed to focus on the restoration of the rights of the majority which were trampled en masse by the British Raj.……….Among the many contenders to shoulder the mantle of Anagarika Dharmapala’s legacy and to continue his work to restore Buddhism to its due place in Lankan society particularly in the difficult transitional phase of the country’s history is L.H. Mettananda.He gave voice to the calls of the Buddhists to re-establish a Buddhist Social Order as existed in the pre-colonial period, though has not materialized to date due to the machinations of anti-Buddhist forces and other dubious elements.”

From the beginning the Yahapalanaya Government of Maithripala Sirisena and Ranil Wickramasinghe had shown that  they are only capable of  pointing their fingers of accusation at others. They have at no point of time pointed their accusatory fingers at themselves, to do an introspection of themselves to see what wrongs they have done, and where they have gone wrong.

Their obsession of the President Mahinda Rajapakse , and their determination to take revenge from him has resulted in Sri Lanka, which was developing into being  a modern stated since 2005, become  poorer, its economy on the slump, lose its sovereignty being constantly interfered into by the USA, the West and the UN, with all development projects neglected , its wealth sold to China and India.

The Air Lanka- the National Air Line has been  neglected and is on the verge of bankruptcy. The Yahapalanaya  has allowed our Central Bank to be stolen, allowed Sri Lanka loose its unique identity as a Buddhist Sinhala country, allowed  Sri Lanka  loose its ancient cultural values, denied the government servants their pension rights, divided the people, and taken away peace and protection that was restored in 2009 by Mahinda Rajapakse.

Under this Sirisena -Ranil Government even our tea has lost its commercial importance , and our tea is for the first time  refused to be purchased by foreign countries.

It is these facts that should be highlighted to make the people vote against the UNP and SLFP Candidates, and the candidates of the JVP at the coming Provincial Council Elections, encouraging them  to vote en mass for the candidates of the Podujana Peramuna

    I hope and pray that voters in Sri Lanka will teach this Yamapalakayo a good lesson like the whole world showed America on the Jerusalem issue at the UN yesterday. Sirisena,Ranil ass suckers of America and the Indian parasites should be kicked out before they sell out the whole land of ours to their friends and conspirators whole helped them to come to power. Vote for pohottuwa period. No other party should win this election. They are all stooges and hypocrites and conspirators of Jan 8th. Help to save our motherland by voting Yamapalanaya out for god’s sake. Bloody blood suckers and pimps of America and the Indian parasites.


    Views of Charles and Ranjith are correct. The Podu Jana Peramuna must capitalize the current unfavourable political situation against Prez. Sirisena and PM Ranil and ensure that it is translated to the actual votes. This is not an uphill task, if SLPP convey the message to the voters effectively. Basil Rajapakse is doing an excellent job in conveying the message. Wimal must also take the front line, even if he is somewhat unhappy with the number of nominations received for his party. Everyone must rally behind MR.

    The SLPP should get at least 58% success rate.

    Our thanks to Charles for this worthy article, clearly stating why the Yahap ought to be displaced.


    Please also refer to Shenali’s recent article “Racism & Separatist Mentality of Tamil Leaders … “.

    These two articles sum it all up re Tamil Separatism, past and present.
    We frankly do not see a bright future for Lanka so long as Tamil Separatism is well and alive for various reasons.
    Question to ask : who keeps Tamil Separatism well and alive, and to what purposes ?

    Some answers :

    1. To erase the 3,000 yr old Tamil CASTE structure brought over from Tamil Nadu, INDIA.

    The strange part is that if Tamil Eelam is ever formed, Tamil Nadu culture will prevail bringing with that the very CASTE structure that Millions of Tamils of low caste origin ran away from !

    2. Foreign countries are probably eyeing large slices of Lanka, tying up with RW’s “Crash & Sell” program going on, started up with the two massive Central Bank scams, yet unresolved.
    Foreign countries may also be eyeing to take over a separate and lonely Tamil Eelam if formed, and if this Tamil Eelam rejects Tamil Nadu overtures and turns to other foreign countries ?

    All this would be inimical to INDIA. A split up Lanka would probably end up with a split up INDIA ?

    Answers to this dilemma for both Lanka & INDIA may be there by :

    A. Removing the ILLEGAL 13-A.
    B. Activating the 6-A.
    C. Show the Lanka public & INDIA that international interference is not necessary to carry forward a peaceful Lanka, Unitary & United, Progressive and Secure, through a PATRIOTIC Govt.

    PATRIOTS of Lanka ! Elect a truly PATRIOTIC GOVT !!

  5. Ananda-USA Says:

    The upcoming Local Government Elections in February, 2018, will indeed serve as a Janamatha Vicharanaya or REFERENDUM on Public Opinion. It is of ENORMOUS SIGNIFICANCE to our country for the reasons I give below.

    If the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) demonstrates overwhelming strength at this Election, it will encourage the President Maithripala Sirisena and his SLFP faction to JETTISON the UNP now and join the SLPP to face the UNP as a formidable RECONSTITUTED SLFP inat the GEneral Election in 2020.

    In that case, as the Governing Party, the recombined SLPP-SLFP will be sure to win in 2020, ushering in a STABLE GOVERNMENT that will be able to PRESERVE the interests of the Patriotic Sinhala Buddhist Forces of our Motherland.

    If the Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) fails to achieve an overwhelming majority in February, 2018 Maithreepala Sirisena may decide to keep the SLFP-UNP coalition going until the Presidential Election in 2020 for his personal survival in the hope that UNP mis-steps and various commissions appointed by him to probe UNP misdeeds will weaken the UNP sufficiently at the hustings in 2020 for the SLFP to maintain its hold on the Parliament in 2020, and the Presidency in 2021.

    In the latter case, the UNP will use the remaining 2.5 years until the General Election in 2020 to weaken the Presidency and the SLPP. In particular, it will do its UTMOST to introduce a NEW CONSTITUTION that GUTS Sri Lanka’s Sovereignty imposing a Federal System of Government on a PROSTRATE Sri Lanka, SELL to foreigners and/or PRIVATIZE as many STATE INSTITUTIONS and ASSETS as possible, implement the ETCA agreement with India, stock its Party coffers with STOLEN STATE FUNDS and STASH as much money ABROAD for its leaders to serve as GOLDEN PARACHUTES for the INEVITABLE and possibly VERY VIOLENT fall of the UNP government, and put as many as possible of its political opponents in prison to weaken and destroy the opposition.

    In a NUTSHELL, the STAKE in this Election is ENORMOUS: an OVERWHELMING VICTORY for the Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) in the Local Government Election in February, 2018 is ESSENTIAL and CRITICAL to OUST the current Yamapalanaya EARLY to PRESERVE PEACE, SECURITY and GOOD HEALTH of our country until 2020 and BEYOND!
