Why Executive Presidency Must Go to Save the Nation

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

Dilrook Kannangara Those who supported SLFP candidates in 1994 (Chandrika), 2005 (Mahinda) and 2015 (Sirisena) have no moral right to oppose the abolition of executive presidency. Abolishing was a key promise of all three presidents since 1994. However, morality is absent not just among politicians but also their voters. Deception and lying is accepted as […]

The police (CID) report that alleges Gotabhaya maintained ‘death squads’ is only quoting Sarath Fonseka. It is not a conclusion drawn from a police investigation. It is hearsay! It is common practice hearsay is not evidence.

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017

Dilrook Kannangara The police (CID) report that alleges Gotabhaya maintained ‘death squads’ is only quoting Sarath Fonseka. It is not a conclusion drawn from a police investigation. It is hearsay! It is common practice hearsay is not evidence. Sarath Fonseka has been saying this for the past seven years for political reasons. Since he is […]

Governance by Blackmail

Friday, March 17th, 2017

Dilrook Kannangara The most potent governance tool of Sri Lanka is blackmail. Presidents use it extensively to buy compliance from friend and foe alike. President Sirisena sits on at least nine (9) investigation reports. The president doesn’t seem to care about punishing the corrupt. He is not at all interested in the massive drain of […]

Tamil Extremists After Industrial Colombo Not Infertile Jaffna

Saturday, March 4th, 2017

Dilrook Kannangara All families of TNA MPs live in Colombo! Their demand for Tamil Eelam is a sham to distract people and terrorise them into extorting more economic benefits and privileges in Colombo and surrounds so that a Colombo-centric Tamil Eelam will become more feasible. Quest for Tamil Eelam was genuine until open war began […]

Help Nipun Ransika Economically to Build a Formidable Opening Bowling Pair

Saturday, February 11th, 2017

Dilrook Kannangara Two Sri Lankan cricket teams played South Africa. One is the national team while the other is the Under-19 team. One achieved remarkable success while the other didn’t. However, both teams unearthed good talent. Dickwella, Kumara and Asela hold enormous potential for future ODI performance from the national team. U-19 team saw superb […]

All Enemies of Mahinda But One Have Fallen

Wednesday, February 1st, 2017

Dilrook Kannangara The UNP-Sirisena regime is an orphan now! All its parents are gone, dead or kaput except one who is on his last legs dragging his wretched country down with him. So where is Samantha Power – the most vicious regime change agent – and her accomplice Biswal? Gone! How about Cameron, Obama and […]

Punishing Venerable Ampitiye Sumanarathana Thero Sets a Bigger Judicial Precedence against Tamil and Muslim Ultra Racists

Thursday, December 15th, 2016

Dilrook Kannangara The Minister of Justice raised a few eye brows when he decided to sort out matters connected to Venerable Ampitiye Sumanarathana Thero outside the legal system. Tamil, Muslim and Sinhala MPs questioned his rationale behind his action. They argued that the venerable Buddhist monk should be punished for hate speech and arousing ethnic […]

Sri Lanka Navy Abuses Innocent Sinhalese While Meekly Surrendering to Tamil and Muslim Aggressors

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

Dilrook Kannangara Shameful and cowardly conduct of the Sri Lanka Navy should be roundly condemned. No less than the Navy Commander used raw filth and violence against unarmed innocent Sinhala civilians in Hambantota. His words perfectly describe his own conduct and descent. What is surprising is the meekly surrender the same navy suffered in Silawathurai […]

AAVA Terrorist Evolution Similar to EROS Terrorist Group

Sunday, November 20th, 2016

Dilrook Kannangara What happens in northern Sri Lanka today is very similar to the happenings in late 1970s leading to full-scale war. Eelam Revolutionary Organisation of Students (EROS) was the first organized terrorist group in Sri Lanka. It was formed out of intellectuals and as the name goes Tamil adult students. EROS was formed in […]

Budget 2017: Taxing the Productive and Rewarding Freeloaders

Sunday, November 13th, 2016

Dilrook Kannangara UNP has come up with yet another budget disaster. Its 2017 budget taxes the productive and rewards freeloaders. This will spell doom for the economy which is already reeling under fiscal mismanagement, astronomical corruption and an unstainable foreign debt. Party politics is written all over the budget. UNP regime plans to give tax […]

Perfect Comparison of US and Sri Lankan Ethnic Composition and Presidential Election Voting Pattern

Friday, November 11th, 2016

Dilrook Kannangara There are eerie similarities between US ethnic composition and that of Sri Lanka. Without a doubt demographics, importantly, ethnic divisions, play the most important role in elections in all multiethnic democracies. Minorities in particular tend to caste their vote as a block which gives them a voting power above their percentage weight. This […]

Potential Destruction of Bond Fraud Evidence, Intimidate Whistle-blowers and Block Access to Investigators?

Sunday, October 30th, 2016

Dilrook Kannangara Danuna Tillakaratne’s security firm has been awarded the contract to provide security to all Central Bank buildings by none less than the Finance Minister by a letter sent recently. Danuna is the son in law of Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka, UNP MP. Central Bank security must be provided by the police or the […]

LTTE Rump Behind Unceasing Hate and Harass Campaign against Gotabhaya?

Thursday, October 20th, 2016

Dilrook Kannangara Various investigative units have harassed former defence secretary more than anyone else. He is not even a politician but almost every month he is summoned to appear before some form of politically motivated investigative body. Even the executive president is unable to stop this malicious harassment! The truth may be even the UNP […]

President Sirisena Must Takeover Law and Order, Economic Affairs and Media Ministries As President Kumaratunga Did in November 2003

Monday, October 17th, 2016

Dilrook Kannangara This is not the first time UNP has proven it cannot manage law and order and economic affairs functions. President Kumaratunga came to the same realisation in November 2003 that President Sirisena is getting into now. She took a bold step to takeover defence, finance and media ministries under her. Otherwise, the UNP […]

Love-the-Navy-Hate-the-Army, West Cannot Trust Sinhalas in Geopolitics and LTTE is Useful for the West

Thursday, October 6th, 2016

Dilrook Kannangara The Geneva and You meeting brought out some remarkable hidden truths out into the open. We thank the organisers and hope the series will continue. Little or nothing have been discussed about these so far but they are at the heart of what the “international community” demands from Sri Lanka. Understanding these is […]

9/11 Attackers Have the Last Laugh as USA Surrenders to Them

Sunday, September 25th, 2016

Dilrook Kannangara USA surrendered at the feet of 9/11 attackers 15 years later. Despite Congress passing a bill to allow US citizens to sue Saudi Arabia for 9/11 compensation, President Obama vetoed it. A sure sign of cowardice and surrender to Saudi Arabia. Long gone are the days of Pearl Harbour when Japan paid a […]

Role of Hindus in Wiping Out Buddhism in India and Parts of Sri Lanka – Part 1

Saturday, September 17th, 2016

Dilrook Kannangara This is an academic analysis of undeniable facts on a subject that is crucially important today. It is not aimed at targeting anyone or any religion but to bring to the fore less discussed forces at work against Buddhism. Sri Lankans must wake up to this threat before it is too late. Today […]

Labour Shortage Due to Ridiculously High Tea Plantation Wages, Importing Labour Not the Solution

Tuesday, August 30th, 2016

Dilrook Kannangara There is no shortage of labour in Sri Lanka as a whole. What is being experienced is shortage of labour in certain business sectors while excess labour in other sectors. This shifting of labour between industries should happen and the government must facilitate it. Importing more labour will worsen the situation with rising […]

Sirisena Killed the SLFP Bandaranaike Fathered 65 Years Ago

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016

Dilrook Kannangara What has been planned for September 4 is the funeral of the SLFP, not the anniversary of its formation. After surviving with coalition politics for 65 years, the SLFP is finally dead reminding us the Four Noble Truths including impermanence. Only its legacy is left. It is time the Joint Opposition takes the […]

Another Idiotic Statement by Ranil

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

Dilrook Kannangara Local Trump has spoken; again. Yet another hilariously idiotic statement was made by the Prime Minister recently when he compared the advent of Buddhism to signing ETCA agreement. He argued that both are from India and we should not favour one and oppose the other. Obviously, his understanding of history and economics is […]

UNP-VAT මගඩියට එකතු වීමෙන් මළගම් යන ශ්‍රී ලංකා නිදහස් පක්ෂය

Sunday, August 7th, 2016

Dilrook Kannangara අද ශ්‍රී ලංකා නිදහස් පක්ෂය දෙලොවක් අතරය. ජනතාව සමග එක්වී VAT මගඩිය පරාජය කරනවාද, UNP හැතිකරය සමග එක්වී මළගම් යනවාද? ජනාධිපති සිරිසේනට ශ්‍රී ලංකා නිදහස් පක්ෂය වැඩක් නැත. සිරිසේනට හංසයා ඇත. ශ්‍රී ලංකා නිදහස් පක්ෂය නොදෙන දේ රවී කරුණානායක ලියාපදිංචි කල හංසයා පක්ෂයෙන් ගත හැක. මොන පක්ෂයෙන් ආවත් සිරිසේනට 2020 දී යන එන […]

Send in Sniffer Dogs to a Cabinet Meeting to Nab the Killers of Lasantha, Prageeth and Many More

Monday, July 25th, 2016

Dilrook Kannangara It has been rightly pointed out that police sniffer dogs must be sent to a Cabinet meeting, not to the Millennium City or military intelligence unit, to sniff out the killers of Lasantha and Prageeth. Ironically the sham ‘Good Governance’ regime harbours mass murderers like no other previous government did except perhaps the […]

ETCA Will Destroy Lankan Economy Along With Businesses of UNP, TNA and SLMC Supporters

Tuesday, July 5th, 2016

Dilrook Kannangara Already the nation is in financial, balance of payment and debt crisis. There is not enough foreign currency to pay for imports and repay loans and interest. It is unwise to enter into a trade agreement with India under these conditions as it will worsen these crises. Since signing the FTA with India […]

The Stupidity of Rushing to Sign ETCA after Brexit

Wednesday, June 29th, 2016

Dilrook Kannangara The UNP government is on the verge of yet another economically disastrous decision. Obviously, UNP leadership feels the shame of defeat in the Brexit vote as it worked hard to convince as many people to vote “remain”. However, its kneejerk reaction is stupidity. Now it wants to speed up signing ETCA to overcome […]

Genocide by British and American Militaries in Diego Garcia Even Today

Monday, June 27th, 2016

Dilrook Kannangara Depopulation and genocide of people in Diego Garcia islands is one of the most foul acts of war crimes in modern world. It is a continuing shame on humanity. In 1966 the British government depopulated the islands to lease out the island to the US government for a military base. A diplomatic Cable […]

Sri Lanka Must Hold a Referendum on ETCA, Proposed Bridge to South India, Indo-Lanka Peace Accord and 13A

Sunday, June 26th, 2016

Dilrook Kannangara Sri Lanka follows Britain in democracy, most laws, economic policy, governance and military tradition. Doing the right thing, Britain consulted its people whether to leave the EU or remain. Rulers didn’t force their own thinking down the throat of countrymen. In a decisive vote most voted to leave. Sri Lanka must take a […]

Rigged Olympics: How US Hegemony Killed an Ancient Sports Icon

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016

Dilrook Kannangara After proof of athletes taking banned performance enhancing substances and allegations of state support for it, Russia has been banned from contesting in the Olympics. This is an absurd decision. Just because a few athletes used banned performance enhancing substances with possible state support, it shouldn’t result in disqualification of the entire team. […]

Save Sri Lanka and People from Despotic Regime

Sunday, June 19th, 2016

Dilrook Kannangara Current regime has turned Sri Lanka into a complete dictatorship. Only those who agree with it can survive doing politics. All others are hunted down, imprisoned, harassed and even threatened. Even the formal Opposition is handpicked by it. TNA and JVP that make up the formal opposition supported Sirisena at the presidential election. […]

Kosgama Debacle: Investigate Involvement of Crooks Seeking Commissions on Weapons Purchases

Tuesday, June 7th, 2016

Dilrook Kannangara The security debacle and a resultant explosion in Kosgama is the worst Sri Lanka has seen. It may have costed over $10 million (1.5 billion rupees) in destroyed stock.

Did Sirisena Fall in the Japanese Death Trap?

Wednesday, June 1st, 2016

Dilrook Kannangara Japan and USA used the G7 summit to bash China and rope in Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Vietnam by the lure of funds (loans) to disrupt China. If Sri Lanka changes its stand on South China Sea as a result, there will be dire consequences. Not even powerful nations mess with China. It […]
