In The Island of 5th May Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne has confessed that “some of those within the government have forgotten that it was the Tamil and Muslim minorities who cast a block vote to elect the yahapalana government. The Eastern Province voted for the common candidate and so did the North”. What he did not elaborate is the electoral promises made by the common candidate to the minority communities in the North and East.

When Sri Lanka co-sponsored the Geneva Resolution against Sri Lanka, the people realized to their horror the kind of promises the yahapalana leaders had given in return for votes. Reading through the well-researched article in the Midweek Review of The Island of 9th May, by Shamindra Ferdinando, this government could go down in history as the most treacherous government of traitors! The people in Sri Lanka and the people of other democratic countries will pay tribute to Lord Naseby of the UK for the courageous efforts he made to obtain ‘suppressed information that could have cleared Sri Lanka’.

The people, however, at the first available opportunity, painted the country RED with the PHOTTUWA at the LG elections, scaring the government to affect several shuffles of ministers, which was like a game of musical chairs and it is still continuing!

Now the talk is of a promised new constitution! The answer to this is the article in The Island of 19th December 2016 by Fr. J.C. Pieris, captioned “Do we need a new Constitution”,

All actions and plans of this government appear to be motivated by anger and hatred. But “Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored, than anything on which it is poured” – Mark Twain.
