AN OPEN LETTER TO THE PRESIDENT OF SRI LANKA-Remove These Corrupt Politicians
Posted on April 12th, 2011

Swarnajith Udana

Mr. President,

Sri Lanka is daringly staring at a new dawn. Inarguably, for an impartial observer, the most successful government after independence is your current government but it is not without its faults. Since Government is a human endeavor, it is natural that errors would occur. Therefore it is expected that people will forgive governments for their honest mistakes as long as they continue to work for the betterment of the People.

Nevertheless sooner or later, people will punish Governments for their negligence, criminal activities, arrogance and corruption with utmost vengeance. To do so, even if they had to choose the better devil among many other devils they would do so because just lack of a creditable alternative  cannot stop them. At the moment, undoubtedly the best devil available has been the Government itself. So the people have backed the Government with huge enthusiasm simply because they know that the other Devil would sell themselves, country and people.  Yet there is danger when the moment of utmost vengeance overwhlems the People, the enemies of people will use these emotional people as bait to fish in troubled water. Facebook Coups engendered by International Messiah is one example. These are not isolated events.

Mr. President, in my opinion, Mrs Chandrika Kumaranathunga has been the worst betrayer of our Nation in the recent history(say about three hundred years)  because of the magnitude of trust that the People placed on her and the vastitude of her contempt she returned for that trust. This contempt was displayed by her arrogance, negligence and other various aspects of governance, which may amount to criminalism. I do not have to describe any of these, activities since your Excellency should have been aware all of these. Mr. President, unfortunately, you are in competition with her to own the title of being the worst betrayer of the Nation if you do not act selflessly now.

Some of your Ministers, your Excellencies’ so called good friends from childhood, who worship at your feet like a dog sitting at its Master, utter vulgarism on TV shows, extort and physically hurt people. When a criminal extorts a rich merchant eventually the criminal extorts the innocent People, thereby eroding the foundation of the Government. Any criminal act or corruptive act is eventually performed against People. The Government’s inactivity or selective and feeble course of actions robs the legitimacy of the Government. The net result could only an installation of even more vicious Government sanctioned by International Messiahs. If and when it happens, Mr. President, the responsibility of this anticipated dark era of our beloved Nation largely falls on you.

People have not elected you for Presidency so that you can pay back your personal gratitude to your political or personal friends or relatives. You may utilise  skills and competencies of your political or personal friends or relatives as long as it is the best alternative available to you and these appointees are a blessing for people. This is the criteria, Mr. President. Mr. Gotabhaya Rajapaksha and Basil Rajapaksha have been blessings for the country as far as I can know. Beyond what I can know I do not know and I do not have any right to comment on unknowns. It is for you to know and rein your Ministers or be ready to take the plunge when the time comes. The nightmare is, for good or bad, at the moment your plunge is the precipice of our Nation. Such are the standards of out Opposition. Also, please remember that the individuals who are once most extalled by the masses become the ones most despised when their true nature is revealed.

            Your Ministers, who worship your feet in front of you and then choose to ravish the country and its people by various means behind your back must know and understand the damage they cause to the country, people, the Government and you. Therefore it must be their willful behaviour. That is, their madness and dumbness has a method and are based on smartness. They can be double agents of International Messiahas. Even if they do not know, still they are agents of these dark force. It is easier to deal with enmy who shows anger towards you but it is a different matter when one needs to deal with an enemy who worships at feet until the right moment comes for the utmost betrayal. (Remebmer Babu, the great friend of Mr. Premadasa?) The fact of the matter is that every moment of this friendship is a cover of the coninuous betrayels happening. They are providing the weapons to the Messaiahs, to motivate people against you so that the Messiahs can create their heaven in Sri Lanka.

            Since you know the immense damage these corrupted political elements cause to the psyche, economy and general wellbeing of our country and people, I do not wish to  waste my or your time explaining the obvious. I hope that you know that all these ravish dogs have to go. You cannot cite weekness of the Government as an excuse since you have displayed Harry Houdini’s magic skills of political cleverness even to harness international messiahas. JVP was just about to bring down your government at the moment of the LTTE was getting defeated. They were hoping that the Government would fail and LTTE would survive just to safeguard their survival.  YOU overcame that. Many of these like examples demonstrat that if you have the will,  you can win.  Even if you do not think that you can win there is no reason for not trying, ignoring and letting this cruel cancers to survive, thrive and it our Nation.

In these many years it appears to impartial observers that you will let only the subbordinates of these criminal ministers get funished and let the ministers themselves (who have been accused of many crimes including rapes) survive to ravish our people again and again. Then most of our media have field days on these occassions. Only some media give publicity for these events for the right reason, welfare of the people. For many other media it is a circus moment. Please do not tell me that the people voted for these thieves. You are the leader. Please assume the leadership in this regard too.

It is your choice. If your choice is clear, definitive and detrmined then there will be even some UNPers who are willing to help. Always, if you explain, people are ready to trust you and help you.

 If “innocent until proven guilty” is the norm for people, for polticians, judges and many other professionals it should be that both “innocent until proven guilty” and “all reasonable precautions have been taken to be seen as innocent”. In the case that one in a high position has failed to take all precusionary measures to be seen as innocent, in addition to being actually innocent, then the person must loose the position and deserve condemnation even though the person can still be regarded as innocent in fron of law. Still there should be consequence for not taking all efforts to be seen as innocent even if the crime itself cannot been proven in front of law. (An example for such precaution: not associating with any known figures from underworld).

Please, President work hard to create this new political culture. Before you look at the faults of the Opposition, please look at the Government. That was what my parents did. They largely ignored the faults of kids of our neighbours but picked up every little misdemeaner of ours. Why do the politicians do otherwiese? Aren’t they good parents? Just asking, please do not read any implications to this rhetoric question. Then again you may.

            Recently I was discussing with a friend of mine of publishing a book written by me. Since this friend of mine know how much I support and respect you and your Government, suggested that the book to be offered to you and make a photo opportunity. The first objection came to my mind was not that I should not burden our busy President with such selfish mundane things. Instead  I responded to him I support this Government since it is the best alternative available by far but still I cannot put myself into a demeaning situation to offer my book for a friend of criminal thieves.

            I did not write this leter thinking that something beneficial would come out of this. I wrote this to relieve my heart. Now, Mr. President, it is time for you to relieve your heart.

Mr. President save your place in the History. Put these double agents in the dustbin. Thanks!

    Indeed. These corrupt and abusive politicians will be the downfall of the ruling party one day. They add nothing and nothing will be lost by getting rid of them.

  2. gdesilva Says:

    Ditto…watch out for the enemies within who pose as friends as only they will succeed in undoing all the good work the President has done.

  3. TERRENCE DE SILVA Says:

    IT IS INDEED ADMIRABLE & THE PEOPLE OF SRI LANKA ARE VERY PROUD INDEED TO HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO STOOD UP VICTORIOUSLY AGAINST THE FORMIDABLE LTTE TERRORISTS AND THE WESTERN POWERS THAT TRIED TO CALL THE SHOTS AND STRONG ARM THE SRI LANKAN GOVERNMENT DURING THE FINALS DAYS OF THE WAR AGAINST TERROR AND WHO STILL CONTINUE TO TRY AND UNDERMINE THE ISLANDS EFFORTS TO STAND FIRMLY AND INDEPENDENTLY FOR A BRIGHTER FUTURE OF ITS COUNTRY AND ITS PEOPLE.

    NOW AS THE ARTICLE ABOVE CLEARLY DENOUNCES SOME TRASHY CHARACTERS WHO ACTIONS TARNISH ALL THE GOOD WORKS DONE BY H.E. THE PRESIDENT, CALLS FOR CLEANING OUT THE AUGEAN STABLES OF ITS FILTH AND ROT. THE RECENT EXPOSURE OF THE CORRUPTION AT THE PELIYAGODA FISH MARKET, THE UGLY TALES OF THE WHITE VANS ABDUCTIONS, THE TEN PERCENT COMMISSIONS, AND THE KILLING OF PROMINENT NEWSPAPER EDITORS & JOURNALISTS – ARE ALL CORROSIVE ELEMENTS IN GOOD GOVERNANCE.

    AS IT SHOULD BE REMEMBERED THAT ALL THE GOOD DONE BY MAN PERISHES WITH HIM AT HIS DEATH; BUT THE EVIL DONE BY HIM LINGERS ON IN HISTORY. ONE FITTING EXAMPLE IN HISTORY IS KING KASSYAPA OF SIGIRIYA THE PATRICIDE KING OF SRI LANKA. (WHO IS BEST REMEMBERED FOR HAVING WALLED IN HIS FATHER ALIVE).

    We have written about corruption in the Governement many a times. Lankaweb forum has very good contributers who writes very good articles about everything what is happenening in our Motherland on day to day basis.What Udana has written in his article is very true and If the President or his secretary read these type of articles they can take some valuable points and correct themselves for the good of the country and the people.
    Our President is a true hero who stood tall against all odds and won the battle for all of us to live in peace and freedom. We dont want to lose him for another so many years but everyday he cannot keep his popularity if he keeps corrupt,unruly,useless,vulger individuals as Ministers,junior Ministers,M.P.’s,or any member in his party. This is the best time to get rid or kick their buts out from the party or from their posts as this is the beginning of his second stint in Governance. Although traitors sling mud at him and his family they are the best in their jobs and who works tirelessly to uplift the standard of our peoples. Daily we see in the news about corrupt politicians,secretary’s of the Ministers,Police big wigs and other Government top officials who was caught red handed for corruption. The President should not look the otherside and allow our traitors in the opposition to take advantage of it and to make a big fuss about it. He should take tough action on these unscrupless individuals and show the countrymen that he actually getting rid of corrupt people in his Party and the Governmnt. The majority of our people are sick and tired of the corrupt politicians and the Government bigwigs who enjoy and waste too much of the money meant for the public. Minister Mervin maybe a good man who has done immense service to the party and to the people of Kelaniya but he is PIA to the President and to the whole country. No decent people will approve his way of doing things and his vulger behaviour. He should put a full stop to his bad behaviour and foul mouth big talks if not President has to take action at once for the betterment of the party and for himself. He is a spoiler he should be tamed like a pet dog and keep him in the distance. President cannot keep these type of individuls in his party or in his Goverment and get the bad name for himself and for his Goverment. We like and hope President will clean the country we love, of corruptions and bad guys as he promised us during the elecetions.

    We like more UDANA’S to come forward and write more and more articles about corruptions in the Government and expose these individuals for the public to be aware of them and send a signal to our beloved President to take action if he wants to continue in his good path of Governance to make our Motherland wonder of Asia.
