Wimal in Parliament

It was with great difficulty we were able to gain the opportunity for the people of this country to face a local government election.  After making many unusual changes in the election process including making it possible to capture power even under defeat using so many technical processes the election process was formulated by this government..

After all these acts an election was held but the Election Commission still find difficulty to release the final official results.  The independent election commission, in the very first election held by them has got its trousers removed.

The confidence bestowed to the people, and the boasting made about the release of results, have nullified by the Chairman of the Commission. Similar to the inept government the commission n also has become an inept institution.  The government went to this poll saying that it is an election that would decide on the construction of culverts and the roads of the villages and interpreting the election as a regional issue.

The government’s confidante Red Friend the leader of the JVP said that most of those who won under the motor cycle symbol in Maharagama were those who are living in Kuliyapitiya and asking how they voted for them even without knowing who were the candidates? We would like to tell them although it was a local government election, that we mustered the people of this country to exercise their franchise considering it as a referendum.

The President’s and the Prime Minister’s people said if they vote for people in power only that the councils will get funds for the construction of other work.  People voted not looking for the culverts, roads and the light posts but as a protest against the destructive course this country was plunged into during the last three years they exercised their franchise against it.

It was because they wanted to get this country out of this destructive path.  Not only that they exercised their franchise to the youngest party  the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna out of all other parties As per the results from that election if the number of votes received by the United National Party was considered as the votes received in a parliament election, the UNP has got only 67 seats.  On our side, we faced the most difficult election.

The government postponed the local government election because the government knew that it will be very easy for the Podujana Peramuna to win the local government elections.  Therefore they brought a new election process upsetting the existing election process.   It was with the challenge of ‘contest in the new ground and see’ that you went for the election. It was a very difficult ground.

Under the new system it is possible for a large number of people to get antagonised with the candidate because they could not get the candidacy, due to reasons such as relationships, caste alliances, due to friendships the vote base could change and instead of national politics, regional politics will be superseded.  This was the most difficult and disadvantageous election we had to face.  However, we respectfully bow down and honour the hundreds of thousands of people who in order to exercise their national responsbility converted that election as a national election, and made Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna victorious in this national election. It was the most difficult election we had to face.

We faced it under its difficult nature and due to the extreme popularity of Mr. Mhinda Rajapaksa and because of the trust the people had reposed on him they voted against the government parties owing to the destruction of the country by this government during the last three years.  What have you done during the last three years?  If it was not for the Prison buses, the Police, the FCID, people like us and Rajapaksas being taken to courts the TV channels and the newspapers may not have had news for the last three years.

The scenes we saw for the last three years as government activities were taking someone to the courts in the prison bus, another one coming from the courts on bail, taking someone to the prison, taking Buddhist monks on charges of raring elephants, and taking gallant war heroes to courts ot to prison.   If it was not for the Prison buses, the Police, the FCID, and the CID there is nothing you have done for the last three years.  It was a government that does not understand the feelings of th people, the difficulties of the people we had for the last three years.  Your Prime Minister does not understand the feelings and thoughts of the people of this country.  He speaks only about England.

In England there was a referendum about a Province recently.  Prime Minister David Cameron did not ignore the result of that referendum saying that it was not a referendum relating to his post.   He resigned from his post because his opinion was rejected in the referendum and his government resigned.  You people fraudulently talk of England and about the Westminster traditions.

There is no point of talking about and the greatness of English if you do not know to safeguard and follow the good traditions of that society.  How the Prime Minister was changed ub 2015.  He was changed based on the mandate of the Presidential election.  It was not a general election mandate. The mandate of the presidential election was used to remove Prime Minister D.M.Jayaratne who had the majority of members in the Parliament and to give the Premiership to Ranil Wickremasinghe who had only 40 odd members, a mnority in the Parliament at that time.

Presidential election mandate was used to bring a UNP Prime Miniister, and for the power change. Today the people as a nation have given a verdict from this local government election.  If you do not have the wisdom to understand that verdict now this government has become a carcass. If you are going to keep this carcass further it will become stenchy, secreting and gangrenous carcass very soon and will have to be disposed.

There are members of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party. They remained in this government for the last three years and for which they got the results they deserve.  They used all the state powers and assumed an anti UNP posture. It was the President who said that the UNP destroyed the economy of this country for the last three years.  It was not we who said, it was the President who said that.

It was the head of your cabinet who said that the economy was ruined.  After making such anti UNP speeches it was possible to get only about 1.4 million votes.  Just a little more than 1.3 million votes, after doing all those things.  Then how can Mr. Maithripala Sirisena claim ownership for the Sri Lanka Freedom Party? I am not a SLFPer but it is a question relevant to the group we are in.  They have lost Polonnaruwa as well.  A person who won when the UNP was in the opposition has also lost this time.  What is being shown by all these results?

You people are trying to add, you have funny methods.  You say that if the votes taken by the one who came second, third and fourth added together will become more than the votes of the person who came first. It is like if I came first in the school by getting more marks, they add the marks taken by the second and third and say that their marks are more than my marks.  Do not try to cover the nakedness of the defeat by various silly baseless arguments.

You people know the real reason for this defeat.  This was the 30th defeat.  Therefore, both Presient Maihripala Siisena and the Prime Mnister Ranil Wickremasinghe have no right to be in those posts now.  President Sirisena who hols the Sri Lanka Freedom Party in his hands hss no right to hold it in his hands, a leader who dwindled that party to 1.3 million votes has no right to hold that party in his hands. As regards Prime Minister those in the UNP anticipated his exit but they got a pack while entering and after that they have become silent.

Their minds became blocked.  They got a large amount Treasury Bond money which got circulated here and there.  Our Vedaratchi MP is making a small sile. They got large amounts and with that all objections died down.  We do not mind if you want to keep him, but this government has no right to go like this.  The people have rejected this government.

A government that has been rejected by the people, a government that has no mandate has no right to take decisions about this country.  Today the rupee is getting depreciated on every second, It has depreciated to 158, it would go to even 180, share market has collapsed, investors have withdrawn, new taxes are being introduced to increase the tax revenue, a new bill is to be introduced facilitating the Prime Minister to obtain loans from wherever  he wants without informing the Parliament.

After doing all these things there will remain no country.After you all have eaten this country it eill not be possible to rescue this country. Therefore we beg you not to commit further sins and without presenting silly arguments such as second plus third is larger than the first  to bow down to people’s verdict and go at least safeguarding the attires you are wearing on. (interruption by Rajitha) Why Mr. Dentist:? Mr. Ship owner? Go Ship-man go.  He owns seven ships.  Seven ships.  These bloody rogues shouted saying rogues, rogues.

This Rjitha is a bloody rogue.  They performed a drama saying rogues, rogues for three years and the drama is over now.  People’s verdit had been given to bloody rogues and the central bank robbers had also been given the peole’s verdict.  Therefore do not talk buffoon talks here.  Even the tail is full of dung.  Get the road prepred for the next world. If you believe in God or Lord Buddha perform some religious and virtuous activities.  The dentist who had bought ships has become a ship tiger,  Respect the people’s verdict and go, go before you are chased out.  ,

    Yes go go and get lost you scoundrel you are not fit to become a dentist even because you are a thief and a kidnapper as we have seen once in the news papers that his family has kidnapped a girl for his son. That story had forgotten by the people but not by us.
    Wimal is a great guy who always worked for the people and the country. I love to hear him talking whether in parliament or outside. He speaks the facts and those ass lickers hate him for that. We want patriots like him to lead our Motherland not rattle snakes like yamaballo. Mahinda is lucky to have such brave sons on his side. I hope and pray before long Mahinda, Wimal and Gamampila Dinesh Vasu and their young energetic strong team will get the power back to their hands with the consent of the people and govern this country to make our country great again like in dutugemunu era. Long live sinhala buddhist homeland.

    I love listening and watching Mr Weerawansa’s speeches. He is one of a kind. I don’t know how, but he gets the right information and articulates them perfectly in his speeches. No wonder Ranil and the thief gang wanted to put Weerawansa in jail forever.

    I wish Weerawansa the protection of the Devas. The country need him, we need him.

    Kumari,

    Well said! I AGREE with you 100% on Wimal Weerawansa; he is a ONE-OF-A-KIND Patriot!

    INDEED, President Mahinda Rajapakse is DEAD on TARGET! It had occurred to me that NOT ONLY the UNP, BUT ALSO the Tamil Separatists, get a BENEFIT from DESTABILIZING the country by PITTING the Sinhala and Mulim People against each other AT THIS TIME!

    AT THIS TIME, when the UN is REVIEWING how Sri Lanka has implemented the promises that Treacherous Western Lackey Avamangala Samaraweera made in Geneva, the Muslim – Sinhala Conflict will ADD FUEL to the COMMUNAL FIRE, CONFIRMS their own ALLEGATIONS of Discrimination, and helps support the DEMANDS of the EELAMISTS for a SEPARATELY Self-Governing Region SOLELY for THEMSELVES!

    Whenever some MINORITY GROUP wants to ACQUIRE MORE POWER in Sri Lanka, they CREATE a COMMUNAL CONFLICT, and get automatic INTERNATIONAL sympathy. This has NOW BECOME a ROUTINE STRATEGY for minorities to ACQUIRE POWER & RIGHTS that go ABOVE & BEYOND the rights of the MAJORITY COMMUNITY.

    Therefore, we PATRIOTS must ASK OURSELVES, who REALLY ENGINEERED THIS CONFLICT: The UNP to stay in Power, the Tamil Separatists to STRENGTHEN their DEMAND for a SEPARATE EXISTENCE, or Muslim FANATICS who want to CONVERT Sri Lanka GRADUALLY into a Muslim Country?

    THERE is MUCH MORE to the CURRENT Communal Conflagaration than meets the EYE! The NEXT PATRIOTIC Govt (NOT the current Yamapalanaya for that would be asking the FOX to MIND the HEN HOUSE!) MUST UNDERTAKE a DETAILED IN-DEPTH INVESTIGATION of this issue!

    MR urges people to be wary of sinister plans to divide country
    March 7, 2018, 11:18 pm

    Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday warned that some sinister forces, bent on destabilising the country, were trying to engineer another 1983 style conflagration to drum up international support for their constitutional reforms, aimed at dividing the country into several semi-independent states.

    Rajapaksa said the gravitation of a section of the Muslim population towards communal political parties had made it easy for the siniser forces to create tensions between the Sinhalese and Muslims by using agent provocateurs.

    “I call on citizens belonging to all communities to reflect intelligently on what has been happening and to refrain from

    all acts of violence”, he said.

    Following is the text of the ex-President’s statement:

    Several violent incidents have taken place in Digana after a Sinhala truck driver died in hospital following an assault by a group of Muslim men. The police have made some arrests, but they are yet to be formally identified as the perpetrators of this murder. The full severity of the law should be brought to bear on those responsible. The government should provide adequate compensation to the family of the victim. Following the violent incidents that occurred in Digana, the body of a Muslim youth has been found in a damaged house. Thus two murders have now taken place. The government has imposed a state of emergency in the country. However, even at the time of issuing this statement, tensions have not abated completely. This is the second clash between the Sinhala and Muslim communities within a week. Just days ago there was an incident in Ampara. A few months earlier, there was the Gintota incident and several other incidents in 2017 as well.

    The only one way to prevent these clashes is the strict enforcement of the law. Unrest is often generated by real or perceived police inaction in relation to a complaint. The police should respond to disputes or conflicts between different communal groups promptly and decisively. Above all, mob violence and collective punishments against uninvolved persons should be prevented at all costs. It is the task of the government to direct the police properly in handling such situations. The local and foreign forces seeking to destabilise this country are trying to engineer another 1983 style conflagration to drum up support for their constitutional reforms which seek to divide this country into several semi-independent states. I call on citizens belonging to all communities to reflect intelligently on what has been happening and to refrain from all acts of violence.

    In the first few years after independence, Sinhalese, Tamil and Muslim leaders ruled this country together as partners. G.G. Ponnabalam had a warm and cordial relationship with the Senanayakes. That era ended in the mid-1950s as communalism and separatism came into Northern Tamil politics. In the past, the two main political parties had Muslim leaders like A.C.S. Hameed, M.H. Mohamed, Badiudin Mohamed and Alavi Moulana who were elected to Parliament not only by Muslims but also by Sinhalese voters. During those decades, tensions between the Sinhalese and the Muslims were virtually non-existent.

    But since the late 1980s a section of the Muslim population has gravitated towards communal political parties. This has made it easy for conspiratorial forces both local and foreign to inflame tensions between the Sinhalese and the Muslims by using agents provocateurs. The tension that we see now between the Sinhalese and the Muslims is a fairly recent phenomenon. Everyone will remember that such tensions did not exist until about 2012. What was started by conspirators who are now in the yahapalana government, for the purpose of dislodging my government, now appears to have taken on a life of its own and mistrust between the communities is growing by the day.

    Even though there are large numbers of Tamils in the north and east, the majority of the Tamil population permanently resides outside the north and east, among the majority Sinhalese. Similarly though there is a significant concentration of Muslims in the east, the vast majority of the Muslims permanently live outside the east, among Sinhalese and Tamils. What we are now experiencing is the mismatch between this demographic reality and communalist politics. The very logic of communal politics requires the portrayal of other ethnic and religious groups as enemies or rivals. Today, the situation is such that a dispute or clash between individuals belonging to different religions or ethnicities, automatically leads to a communal riot that spreads throughout the area.

    Obviously this is not a situation that can be allowed to continue. There is a need to create in this country a nationalistic alliance comprising Sinhala, Tamil and Muslim leaders resembling the first post-independence government. This is not going to be an easy task given the poisonous contagion of communalism that has spread in this country over the past several decades. However on the basis of the recently concluded local government elections, I have reason to be cautiously optimistic that a window of opportunity exists to be able to turn back the tide of communalism. I intend initiating a dialogue in this regard with national minded Sinhala, Tamil and Muslim individuals and organisations in due course.
