President Maithripala Sirisena says that he does not know who prepared the ‘100-Day Programme’ of the Good Governance government, which was unveiled after his election victory on January 8, 2015.

He made these controversial comments while delivering a strongly-worded speech during the commemoration event held at the Foundation Institute today (30) to mark the 76th birth anniversary of the late Most Ven. Maduluwawe Sobitha Thera.

The President stated that to this day he respects and he is content and grateful for the fact that he was chosen as the Common Candidate to face the last Presidential Election.

He said that even for that certain individuals are now saying that anyone would have gone on to win that election as the Common Candidate, if not him. I was taken because there was no one else.”

The President stated that the 100-Day Programme which was published and unveiled after the election win contained a pledge for the 19th Amendment to the Constitution.

In which Parliament in the history of the world can the Constitution be amended for the want of 47?” he questioned, referring to the number of UNP MPs in Parliament at the time.

He stated that the 100-Day Programme did not have the dissolution of Parliament in it.

I do not know who made this. That was the stupidest thing done,” he said.

The President said that what should have been done was to dissolve Parliament immediately after he was sworn in.

He questioned whether the first Budget proposal of the government under the 100-day programme or the 19th Amendment to the Constitution could have been passed without the support of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP).

We were able to do those things because I took over the leadership of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party.”

Maithripala Sirisena also said that only he knows how many times he protected the country from unsuitable things, because SLFP Ministers were in the Cabinet.

    The best Indian puppet India ever had.

    This shameless AAPAYA’s DOUBLE TALK is AMAZING!

    He hawked the 100-day PROGRAMME, including his PROMISE to STEP DOWN FROM THE PRESIDENCY after 100 DAYS, to HIGH HEAVEN to get ELECTED President!

    He then APPOINTED Ranil Wikunanasinghe as PM despite the presence of a sitting PM of his own Party and EXCLUDED Mahinda Rajapaksa from the PM Post to ACHIEVE HIS OWN NARROW Partisan ENDS!

    Yet, now HERE HE IS … DENYING all RESPONSIBILITY for the 100-day PROGRAMME!

    Sirisena … this is PURE UNDILUTED WADI-BANA! SHAMELESS!

    Between 2015 and 2016, Perpetual Treasuries has reportedly distributed Rs 1196 million via 176 cheques drawn on a Mendis Distilleries account to 118 Members of Parliament.

    That amounts to Rs 6.8 million per cheque ON AVERAGE.

    Even Sarath Gonseka has acknowledged receiving a campaign contribution cheque of Rs 100,000 from Perpetual Treasuries!

    This is AFTER Perpetual Treasuries was IDENTIFIED as the company behind the CENTRAL BANK BOND SCAM!

    I URGE the President to INTERVENE to RELEASE the NAMES of the MPs who received these BRIBES!

    The CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES of the Yamapalanaya led by Ranil Baba and his 40 Thieves BOGGLES the MIND! Their GREED is ONLY EXCEEDED by the STUPIDITY of their CONVICTION that they will ESCAPE ALL RESPONSIBILITY for this GREATEST of BANK ROBBERIES and BRIBERY of POLITICIANS on the GRANDEST of SCALES!

    May the HATARAWARAN GUARDIAN DIETIES of Sri Lanka TOTALLY DESTROY these CRIMINALS at the EARLIEST POSSIBLE OPPORTUNITY!

    He lies. He once said that he is a one of the rare Presidents in the world to have sent two helopcopters to allow the defeated Present to go home safely and now he says who did that. He is trying to win the sympathy of the people by telling all these lies. He had been a party to what Ranil had been doing from the onception of the Yahapalanaya. Why this speech now ? If an executive President had been so inept allowing himself to be manoeuvred by his Prime Minister why remove Executive Powers ? Sirisena has acted as he has no Ececutive powers.
