President Maithripala Sirisena has become a prisoner of the United National Party (UNP), former Minister Bandula Gunawardena said.

The former Minister asserted that the UNP always had the backing of some foreign elements for the victory at the January 8 polls.

There was a foreign conspiracy behind UNP’s win. With respect to our situation here, term ‘conspiracy’ has been defined by Ashok K. Mehta, who is a former Major general of the Indian Army, and a columnist on defence and security issues. He explains this as a ‘rainbow coalition’ which assisted to topple the former Government,”   Gunawardena added.

Ashok K. Mehta in an article to the Hindu News paper said The rainbow coalition that toppled Mr. Rajapaksa was cobbled together in secret meetings over 18 months in London, New Delhi and Colombo between an odd mix of right and left-wing politicians, intellectuals, lawyers and Buddhist clergy that included former President Chandrika Kumaratunga, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe, Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera, constitutional expert Jayampathy Wickramaratne, left-wing academic Kumar David and Sinhalese Buddhist monk Ven. Maduluwawe Sobitha Thero. The difficult part was poaching Mr. Sirisena so that Mr. Kumaratunga and Mr. Wickremasinghe, bitter political opponents, could sit together. The 100-day transition and reform plan, to which all parties in the coalition are signatories, will repeal the 18th Amendment, revive the 17th Amendment to restore institutions of governance, and replace the Executive Presidency with a Parliamentary system. A parliamentary election is planned for later in the year to ensure a two thirds majority to alter the constitution. But what after 100 days?,”

Sirisena is entangled in the trap laid by the UNP,” he said, adding that the President has also been brainwashed by the UNPers. That’s why he said, the former President has no right to contest at the forthcoming election,”

He also went in to say a recent observation made by Sirisena indicates that not only the Diaspora but the president himself shows enmity and hatred for former President Rajapaksa. Not as the Prime Ministerial candidate, even the President doesn’t want Rajapaksa to contest at the election,” Gunawardena said.

According to provisions included in the 19th amendment to the constitution, Sri Lankan nationals who possess dual citizenships are not permitted to contest in the General Election. This particular term was added to prevent Gotabaya Rajapaksa of entering politics,” he said.

    This is what happens when you make dirty deals with traitors. Sirisena has to take orders from Ranil and Chandrika now and will be exposed if he refuses to do so. What sort of a deal he made with those traitors? Your guess is as good as mine. Big us $ and perhaps the green card?

    Namaste: We are all prisoners of the Indian Empire except the Indian colonial parasites in the island. Jai Hind

    I have heard from the Sri Lankan business community, the worse bi-lateral trade agreement SL had signed was the one signed with India during Choura’s time. Wonder what the traitor signed on his first overseas trip made to India. He would have signed off the country to Modi as payment for making him the puppet president.

    Namaste: The 2015 Sri Lankan Presidential election: How it happened? What it means for Sri Lanka? What it means for Indian Empire (Indian Union & its colonies)?
    How it happened? Another Indian job. The former President called an early election. The Indian imperialists (India) were ready to correct its mistake in 2005 when it backed Mahinda Rajapaksa over Ranil Wickramasinge. Then, Indian imperialists advised Indian block vote in the island to abstain from voting. The reason for the preference was Indian imperialists thought it will be easier to negotiate with Mahinda an unknown matter for India. Unfortunately for India, Mahinda did not follow Indian directions as former Sri Lankan leaders did since 1956. In 2010 India enrolled General Sarath Fonseka as a presidential candidate against Mahinda and failed. So behind the scene as Indian imperialist always do they were planning for years and got former governor Chandrika Bandaranayake-Kumaranatunge to do the job and succeeded with doing a repeat of what India did with her father Solomon West Ridgeway Dias Bandaranayake in 1951. India did not have to wait for four year this time. India managed to divide the non-Indian vote and got the Indian block vote for Maithripala Sirisena the new governor of Sri Lanka who may be the proxy for the real governor Chandrika.
    What it means for Sri Lanka? Nothing much. It will be the same as what the island nation had from 1956 to 2005 and before from 1792 to 1948. The Indian minority will run the country with the privileges they enjoyed since their arrival under the cover of the British fire power and their own nonviolent aggression and oppression. They will claim they are the victims of Majority Chauvinists; the same claim that they make in other colonies from Fiji to Guyana. For example; finance and justice; most important ingredients in the world and heads of these two institutions in the island now are from the victimized minority and one of them has been brought from another colony.
    What it means for the Indian Empire? It means a lot to the Indian Empire. The former partner of the British-Indian Empire from Fiji to Guyana that is all former tropical colonies of the British-Indian Empire. India lost its control over the island nation since 2005 as the new government of the island nation managed to wipe out the Indian terrorist arm; trained, armed, financed, managed and branded Tamil !Tigers by India. Since the election of the new governor Indian cars and food have become cheaper with reduced tax on Indian products. Indian Imperialists have already indicated massive investments and projects in all sectors of the economy. This will not be a hard act as the island nation’s economy has been in their hands for more than two centuries and the business language in the country is an Indian language spoken by more than 75 million of them in India. The wealthiest in the island are Indian though their wealth is not stored in the island but most of it in India. Reclaiming the control over the island nation will supplement its control over the Indian Ocean and Indian Ocean countries. With its unchallenged military power; with ICBMs, Aircraft Carriers, Nuke Subs, Nuke (Peace) bombs and purchase of hundred billion dollars’ worth of military hardware the island nation provides the best step with Mauritius a third State of India to lay a drag line across the Indian Ocean.

    And everyoone in every country is a Prisoner of the Systems that have been set up. Do these Systems really work for all, or for some only ?

  8. Kumari Says:

    Unite we stand, divide we fall. It was the dis-unity of the Sinhalese that allowed the Indians to put their dirty fingers in. Rajapakse a giant among the politicians should have got our 70% plus more from those non-Sinhalese who want to live in a peaceful SL. The biggest commission earner in SL was the war, so many people and companies made millions from it and that is why our enemies wanted to keep the war going, including the NGOs. Our Veerayas try to save the country from the man who saved it and see what is happening.
