PM asks President to temporarily remove Vijayakala Maheswaran
Posted on July 3rd, 2018

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has requested President Maithripala Sirisena to temporarily remove State Minister Vijayakala Maheswaran from her ministerial portfolio until inquiries are completed.

An investigation is being carried out regarding certain controversial comments made by the State Minister regarding the now defunct LTTE, during an event in Jaffna yesterday

Several MPs from both sides today requested the Speaker of Parliament to relieve State Maheswaran from her post as an MP.

Speaker Karu Jayasuriya informed Parliament that an inquiry will be carried out with regard to the statement and an appropriate decision will be taken afterwards.

Joint Opposition members charged that Maheswaran has no right to continue to represent the Parliament as she has committed the grave crimes of promoting terrorism and violating the Constitution.

Leader of the House, Lakshman Kiriella, also stated that the United National Party (UNP) will be conducting a disciplinary inquiry regarding the State Minister’s speech.

The Speaker has informed the Attorney General to investigate whether State Minister Vijayakala Maheswaran’s controversial statement has violated the Constitution or any laws and to take necessary legal action.

Speaking during a state event held in Jaffna yesterday (2), Maheswaran had said that the LTTE should be resurrected for the freedom of the Tamil people.

If Tamil people want to live freely, the LTTE should raise their hand again, she had reportedly said.

    Arrest her under PTA ! Nationalize the wealth (ships owned by her), if cannot , pass the laws and do it !
    This is the opportunity for all the opposition jokers to force the government to do it NOW !

    All these inquiries by Speaker & Leader of the House and also Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe request President Maithripala Sirisena to temporarily remove State Minister Vijayakala Maheswaran from her ministerial portfolio are all eye wash. PM is trying his usual tact tick to make president more unpopular by this issue.

    Vijayakala Maheswaran’s call for RESURRECTION of the LTTE is OUTRIGHT TREASON.

    Vijayakala Maheswaran’s call for RESURRECTION of the LTTE is OUTRIGHT TREASON and INCITES terrorism.

    As the UNP Minister of Child Welfare and a Tamil WELL AWARE of the ENSLAVEMENT and VIOLATION of CHILDREN practiced on a MASSIVE SCALE by the LTTE, she is COMPLETELY HYPOCRITICAL when she ADVOCATES the RESURRECTION of the LTTE! Therefore, SHE IS COMPLETELY UNFIT to hold this Ministerial Portfolio or ANY OTHER position in government.

    Furthermore, this statement arises in a background of INCREASING LTTE activism, discovery of weapons of war in the possesion of former LTTE cadre, public support for the LTTE and a SEPARATE EELAM in the North and East by Tamil leaders of like mind including Sambandan (Leader of the Opposition and the Tamil National Alliance), Sumanthiran (Attorney and MP), Vigneswaran (former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Chief Minister of the Northern Province, and now a VOCAL EXPONENT of separatism, and Sivajilingam (Probhakaran’s brother-in-law). In other words, this is an attempt to AGGRAVATE & INCITE public support of the Tamil population foer the LTTE with the intention of calling for a SEPARATE STATE OF EELAM in the not too DISTANT FUTURE with the aid of the Tamil DIASPORA, Tamil Nadu nationalists, and their WESTERN BACKERS aligned against China.

    They are getting to be FRANTIC at the PROSPECT of a LANDSLIDE VICTORY for the Patriotic Forces of Sri Lanka in the next TWO ELECTIONS, and the LOSS of EVERYTHING they hoped to accomplish through the YAMAPALANA GOVERNMENT. They see the WRITIONG ON THE WALL and are PREPARING for a UNILATERAL DECLARATION of INDEPENDENCE!

    The RESPONSE to Vijayakala Maheswaran’s TREASON should be taken at FOUR LEVELS:

    1. Impeach & Expelo her from her position as a Member of Parliament. The basis is that an MP’s oath taken at swearing-in requires an MP to UPHOLD the National Constitution. She has VIOLATED that OATH. The person RESPONSIBLE for doing this is the Speaker of the House, currently Karu Jayasuriya.

    2. She should be EXPELLED from Membership of the UNP as having VIOLATED the Constitution of the UNP. If the UNP FAILS to EXPEL her, then the UNP by default CONDONES and becomes PARTY to that TREASON. The persons responsible for doing that are the General Secretary of the UNP, and its Executive Committee, headed by the President of the UNP Ranil Wickramasinghe.

    3. The Department of Justice of Sri Lanka, and the Attorney General as the operational executive should ARREST, INDICT, PROSECUTE and CONVICT Vijayakala Maheswaran under the Laws of the Constitution that prohibits TREASON and the Protection Against Terrorism Act (POTA). The TREASON Laws mandate a MINIMUM sentence of 7 years in prison.

    4. Upon CONVICTION in the Courts, Vijayakala Maheswaran should be STRIPPED of her Sri Lankan citizenship, and STRIPPED of her citizenship rights upto and including disqualification from holding ANY PUBLIC OFFICE in general, and Membership in the Parliament in particular.

    Indeed, these SAME STEPS, in appropriate forms, should be taken AGAINST ALL THOSE Tamil Politicians mentioned above for their TREASONOUS PRONOUNCEMENTS and SUPPORT for Tamil SEPARATISM in the distant and recent past!
