Chandrika a modern day Dona Catherina, Ranil a Don Juan Dharmapala

‘Good governance’ not at the expense of country’s future

“If the JHU brings Maithripala Sirisena to power by saying ‘get on this bus’, and the JHU leaves in 100 days and Ranil, Chandrika and Ravi Karunanayake Co takes the country towards Eelam on the A9 road after that, the JHU cannot absolve itself of responsibility. This is why, though I love my party, I took this decision after many sleepless nights,” said Deputy General Secretary of the JHU and former Western Provincial Minister Udaya Gammanpila.

Gammanpila yesterday asked as to whether good governance can be established in the country in connivance with forces led by Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga who became well known among the public as Queen of Deceit, and UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe who was hanging onto the UNP leadership forcibly in spite of a series of humiliating election defeats. He said that the Jathika Hela Urumaya believed that Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga is the modern day Dona Catherina and Ranil Wickremesinghe a modern day Don Juan Dharmapala.

Gammanpila added that he was of the view that the JHU cannot turn Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga into a Viharamahadevi or Wickremesinghe into King Dutugemunu.

The former Provincial Minister said that he cannot be a party to forces that are against the Motherland in the guise of establishing good governance and he decided to go against the party and express support to the President for the sake of the country.

Although he did not endorse the JHU’s affiliation with the Chandrika _ Ranil clique, he remained silent to keep the party intact.

“I cannot be a part of this alliance if it leads to Eelam in the guise of establishing good governance,” he said

Gammanpila added that he decided to leave the party after considering the serious and repurcussion that the country will have to face due to this alliance.

The former Provincial Minister said that his party men asked as to why he was silent at the party’s Central Committee meeting.

The former Western Provincial Minister questioned the double standards of the common candidate Maithripala Sirisena over the abolition of presidency. He said that his party is for the exeutive presidency after making necessary amendments to it.

He added that Sirisena gave a written pledge to UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe that he would abolish the Executive Presidency within 100 days of his election before the Jathika Hala Urumaya being assured on the same day that he would safeguard the Executive Presidency after making necessary amendements to it.

He should tell his stakeholders to whom he is lying, he said.

The former JHU Deputy General Secretary said it was the JHU’s initial position that a Buddhist candidate should be fielded for the presidential poll from the party with the support of other Buddhist organizations but this stance of the party changed at the last minute.

Gammanpila said that the 17th Amendemnt to the Constituon promoted division based on ethnicity in the country and it gave impetus to bureacracy and the JHU opposed this bill in Parliament.

“The 17th Amendment proved ineffective and Maithripala pledged at the Viharamahadevi Park that he would reinforce this redundant piece of legislation,” he said.

    Yes, I do have a deadly defect … I write too much sense! I should be jumping up and down like our resident war-games expert Lorenzo yelling “The Emperor is Corrupt” and presenting copious LISTS of INSIGNIFICANT molehill issues that he desperately wants to blow up into veritable mountains, in his Regime-Change war-game strategy!

    Corruption in Sri Lanka was NOT INVENTED by MR; he inherited a society and a political system that was oiled by corruption. In every government Sri Lanka had, there was corruption, with Ministerial portfolios as licenses to grow rich at the expense of the public. That was so during Ranil’s, Premadasa’s, CBK’s, JR’s, and even Sirimavo’s governments.

    However, while there was corruption in those governments, there was ALSO LITTLE ECONOMIC PROGRESS, in the country, and NO PROGRESS on preserving the territorial integrity of the nation and security for the people to live safely. These governments tried to be “good Buddhists” abandoning their PRIME DUTY to protect and preserve the lives of the people. Also, the SIZE of the ECONOMY stagnated, the economic pie was not getting bigger to serve the rapidly increasing educated population with increasing aspirations and expectations. There was NO VISION for defending nation or for growing the pie.

    ALL THAT changed dramatically with the rise of the current UPFA government.

    The war to eradicate separatist terror was fought with the will and determination required to win it, and the economic war to drag our Motherland into the Modern Age was, was injected with a new Vision. Judicious Economic and Investment Risks required to give our people the tools to help themselves, were taken. This involved expanding the banking system to make investment money available to businesses, and borrowing the necessary investment funds to create the necessary capital intensive infrastructure, and establishing alliances with other nations that are willing to invest in Sri Lanka without interfering in and destabilizing the recovering post war society.

    All of this expanded involvement in the economy by the GOSL meant that large sums of borrowed money, a thousand fold greater than deployed hitherto by previous governments, was being spent visibly for massive infrastructure undertakings, making that a target of the jealous anti-government forces. Some money was certainly leaking out through corruption, but no more as a percentage than in previous governments; but the amounts are large because the budget is very large, and it is a source of envy by those out of power.

    These insanely jealous groups, out of power, now given an object lesson of how the country can be developed rapidly, without access to the government till, and steamrolled into impotence by the SUCCESS that is being wrought before their very eyes, searched for ways and means of getting back on the gravy train.

    They saw how regimes were changed in the Arab Spring by propaganda alone, they saw the friction developing with the Regime-Changing Western Powers as a result of the Sri Lanka – China Alliance, they see as a useful tool the Tamil Diaspora with their fabricated War Crimes allegations. They then decided to ADOPT the same strategy for REGIME CHANGE change, and to ally themselves with Sri Lanka’s foreign enemies for that purpose. It is not without reason that the puppets, without any intrinsic merit of their own, received invitations to MIT and Harvard and elsewhere for onsite coaching on Regime Change strategy, and were pandered to by the Regime Change artistes as they had pandered to Ahmed Chalabi of Iraq!

    Ergo, we have a massive wave of foreign-funded propagandists online, flooding the social media, Facebook, Twitter, web blogs, text messaging, newspapers, all funded, aided and abetted by the Regime Change artists who brought down the governments of Libya, Egypt, Morocco, Sudan, Ukraine, engineered a rebellion in Syria, and are pursuing the strategies in Russia and China as well.

    Propagation of Human Rights and Democrazy is their PRETEXT, but preservation of Western Hegemony at all costs, whatever the cost in lives and human destruction they sow, is the OBJECTIVE with local people and anti-national forces greedy for pomp and power in their countries, soon to be destroyed, as their puppets and weapon choice to do their bidding.

    And so it is that we find ourselves today in Sri Lanka, poised on the threshold of foreign inspired Electoral Coup-de-Etat in collusion with local collaborators to OVERTURN the PATRIOTIC NATIONAL GOVERNMENT of the country that stands in their way.

    The projected path to their goal is through winning a Presidential Election and using the Executive Power of the Presidency to Gut the National Constitution ILLEGALLY, to Change the Leadership of the Parliament ILLEGALLY, to Enact a de-facto partition of the Nation to the defeated separatists, and to SERVE their FOREIGN PAYMASTERS by ENSLAVING our Sovereign Motherland to a foreign yoke.

    That ENSLAVEMENT to a foreign yoke, and not the pre-textual elimination of corruption, and uplifting of democracy and human rights, is in a NUTSHELL, what is afoot and at stake in this Presidential Election.

    PATRIOTS! RISE UP in your millions to UTTERLY DEFEAT & DEMOLISH this FOREIGN CONSPIRACY to ENSLAVE our Motherland by RE-ELECTING on January 8, 2015 our heroic war-winning President Mahinda Rajapaksa, to the Executive Presidency!

    Let us CONTINUE our MARCH as ONE Nation of ONE People sharing ONE Destiny, unfettered and free, under his PATRIOTIC Leadership, to build Mother Lanka into the New Wonder of Asia!
