2015 General Elections : Saving Sri Lanka’s Sovereignty
Posted on August 1st, 2015

Sri Lanka is at a crucial juncture. The situation is far more dangerous than the 3 decades of terror that prevailed. It is such an intense situation that calls for all politicians to set aside their self-centred political ideologies and cunning to realize the thin line we are treading on and the abysmal outcome likely to result unless we all rise to the occasion as one nation protecting the nation from division or separation. This election is about voting to divide or secure the sovereignty of the country.

Let us take incidents and put them in perspective to understand the plot.

Firstly we need to realize that with the implementation of the 13th amendment via the India forced Indo-Lanka Accord in 1987 and the introduction of the provincial council system, Sri Lanka is in structure federal. However the Centre holds the powers to dismantle the provinces if they do not function to the countrys laws. The best example was the annulment of the merged North-East Provincial Council in 1990 when its Chief Minister Varatharaja Perumal declared Unilateral Declaration of Independence and thereafter ran off to India.

Additionally it must also be stated that 36 of the 37 subjects have been devolved to the provinces barring police and land powers which have not been devolved to ANY of the provinces. Why should only the North seek it. The NPC cannot behave as spoilt children throwing tantrums without proving they are capable of governing the 36 powers under their purview! Obviously they are least interested in serving the people of the North proven by the simple example of utilization of the budget. TNA Provincial Administration requested Rs.5,831million for 2014 but had only utilized 25.17% for the entire 9months whereas the GOSL had spent Rs.290,271 million from the National budget for the same period. Who provided a service to the North – the GOSL or the NPC?



Ever since the Northern Provincial Council was established in 2012 with a former Supreme Court judge leaving Colombo where he lived for over 70 years to live for the first time in the North there has been nothing but a harangue of complaints and whining with little done to serve the people of the North. The TNA MPs had been travelling overseas campaigning together with LTTE diaspora among foreign leaders and UN officials.

The packaged list of complaints have included demanding the closure of military camps and removal of military personnel, accusations of rape, claims of vices, colonization of Sinhalese. Taken together what the obvious intention is to remove military presence, nullify security blanket over the North and ensure that no Sinhalese was given entry to North. This high-handed initiative overlooked the fact that 10% of the population in the North in 1977 were Sinhalese and some Sinhalese had been living in the North well before 1940s while sufficient archaeological and historical artefacts serve to prove the Sinhalese occupied the entire island before Tamil migrants came from Tamil Nadu! Thus all mythical notions can be statistically & historically proven wrong though cultural genocide of Sinhala Buddhist artefacts need to now be showcased against both Tamil politicians and LTTE/supporters.

To give oxygen to these demands by the TNA and the North Chief Minister in comes the usual culprits the human rights activists all of whom secure their monthly salaries from Western governments  plotting the outcome for Sri Lanka in Washington & London. Thus, we have C4, Sooka, Amnesty, HRW and their local paid stooges all coming out with reports, panel discussions, statements which are then quoted as if from the Bible by the UN and foreign envoys and leaders which suffice to establish grounds for resolutions totally ignoring the legalities involved. The global systems function in such a way that there is not a soul to question how the very players that labored to prevent the elimination of the LTTE militarily were the one’s bringing the resolutions against Sri Lanka for war crimes/crimes against humanity partnered by internationally proscribed LTTE’s handlers abroad! No one came forward to question how investigation calls for the last phase ended up making allegations on everything that could be packaged to bring their enemies to trial and put them out of the way of disturbing their plans for Sri Lanka.

It was the same coalition that put together a common candidate and canvassed for the regime change in January 2015. The players were the same. The stakeholders the same.

Now imagine where these developments will gradually lead to:

  • Unelected Prime Minister assuring full autonomy to the North in an interview to Indian media immediately after the January 2015 Presidential elections
  • Applauds and bouquets pouring in from Western governments going so far as to even produce state reports praising improved human rights within months of the change in government.
  • Virtually buying over key local entities like media / SL Bar even academia and steering the thought process of the people via a well constructed media campaign feeding lies and distortions that people were ready to believe and accept.
  • Northern Chief Minister demanding direct foreign aid and direct diplomatic ties.
  • Northern Chief Minister leaving for US without permission for ‘tuition’
  • Major slip of the tongue revealing the real intentions came when UNDP head referred to the Northern Provincial council as a ‘Government’  a perfect example of ‘kata boru kiwuwath diva boru kiyanne netha”  http://www.lankaweb.com/news/items/2015/06/11/use-of-the-term-northern-provincial-government/
  • UNDP and other INGOs offering only Northern Province direct aid and other assistance specifically in areas that are required in the event of running a separate state.

Reiteration of a separate state through the TNA election manifesto while simultaneously the Muslims are also claiming that unelected PM had given to them in an unwritten election pledge. (these all call to mind how the unelected PM signed the 2002 cease fire agreement giving territory to terrorists without so much as even informing his own cabinet and thereafter promoting himself for his wessanthara gesture).

What we need to take home from these developments is the realization that while LTTE was a creation of India & Britain that drafted the 13th amendment & the provincial council system keeping in mind Sri Lanka’s geopolitical positioning and the Trinco natural harbour. It was with the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi that LTTE became directly controlled by the West via the Church and explains why Church leaders were the mouthpieces for both Tamils and the LTTE over the years inspite of over 98% Tamils being Hindus. The 3 decades of terror that kept Sri Lanka destabalized and curtailed to firefighting and damage control enabled the West’s covert operators the NGOs/INGOs and the UN entities to penetrate to Sri Lankan society and key structures that could be influenced – falling immediate victims were the SL media, handful of journalists, SL Bar Association and other key state structures.

When the decision to militarily defeat the LTTE was taken the West did their best to prevent the LTTE loss and when the elimination looked inevitable the West had a backup plan already in place and thus by bringing down the curtain on LTTE terrorism the next modus operandi was to resurrect the political arm of the LTTE via the TNA. This explains the manner in which significant attention was shown by the West towards the TNA. The GOSL erred in not initiating action to investigate TNA’s links to LTTE prior to holding elections in the North.

With the West realizing that in the TNA they have an easy partner ready to allow them to use North/East so long as Tamils were granted access to live in the West, the next stage was to secure a puppet down south. RanilW fitted the bill to perfection. With the powerful position of the Presidency diluted for the next 5 years by installing a rainbow multicultural President not knowing where his allegiance is, the overall security and stability of the country is now in a volatile position. Neutralizing the enemy comes via the UN and through the illegal mechanisms now in force to subject the national leaders for bogus war crimes and remove them from the picture.

So what does the picture now look like? With elections just weeks away the TNA manifesto and open declaration that UNP Leader has promised them a separate state fits perfectly with the slip of the tongue by the UNDP head referring to the Northern Provincial Council as the Northern Government! This is the ultimate outcome pursued.

So what is the danger in TNA asking for autonomy? TNA is an unregistered coalition. It is the ITAK party that is the key party in this coalition. The ITAK – Illankai Tamil Arasu Katchchi has fooled the people by referring to itself as the Federal Party. Its Constitution has been challenged and ITAK is reluctant to reveal what ITAK’s constitution aims & objectives are. If ITAK claims ‘Shamasthi” stood for ‘federalism’ why did they substitute the word ‘shamasthi’ with ‘innaipachchi’ in August 2008 months before LTTE was eliminated? The allegation is that the new word stood for ITAK’s aim for a confederacy. A confederacy is a union of independent and sovereign States.  A confederacy is formed with an intention to create independent and sovereign States. The government of a confederation can withdraw from the Union and explains why TNA is making a strong bid for self-determination a quest that satisfies age-long mental preparation that will leave them in the same abysmal situation that the people of Kosovo finds themselves though only a handful of Tamils are now beginning to realize that the West is pursuing their ‘cause’ not for any love of them but because that ‘cause’ fits well into their overall plan. If we look deeper we can realize the ‘cause’ was actually created by the West and promoted using selfish Tamil politicians who viewed it as an opportunity to rule over their own people!

Be that as it may the West has been playing politics with the minds of people creating slogans to pitch the minorities against the majority in the time-tested successful divide & rule initiative.

It is in connecting the dots that we can put the puzzle together to understand why Mahinda Rajapakse is not the preferred choice but Ranil Wickremasinghe is while the dots should also reveal that these preferences are only until the job is done and thereafter it is cheerio darling… as Saddam, Osama, Gaddafi and even Mubarak found out too late.

What we as citizens need to now realize is that in allowing various foreign entities to interfere and dictate how a sovereign country should run itself we have invited the enemy and now that enemy is slowing closing in and disturbing the structure of the country. Though Sri Lankans are poor at comparing Sri Lanka’s case with the other countries that ‘democracy’ has been delivered to we are blindly walking into a trap that is destined to ruin the nation and our people.

Nationalist leaders will be imprisoned for concocted crimes while puppets who will be used to remove all legislative, constitutional and other legal barriers and thereafter once there of no use any more they too would be removed. Where does that leave the rest of the country’s citizens?

That answer merits some serious thinking in the next couple of days by Sri Lankan citizens to realize that this election should not be to vote because parties promise to reduce the price of essential goods, promises the sun and the moon or increasing salaries. This election is very much about voting to safeguard the sovereignty of the country or to blindly vote for parties that are willing to give the nation to foreign powers so long as they will be kept in power irrespective of what is good for the nation or people.

    Sri Lanka is a mess. What is the other country in the world that gave two strips on the national flag to foreigners Tamils and muslims ?

    Sri lankan voters vote not to the candidate that represent their electorate but to the candidate that represent their district. That is why this preferential system is needed and politicians need to do drug trade in order to distribute goodies, money and rice packets just before the election. In that sense, Only TRUELY elected legislator in Sri lanka is president and not any one else.

    I listened to a SLBC program recently in which it said that Ahamadineja went home by bus one he lost his president post. Even now he goes to work by bus because he is a commoner now. what is the situation in Sri lanka ? Even the provincial councillor needs three defender Jeeps and three Mansions and a humongous bank account to serve the country. That is why Drug Kinspins are always with VVIPs. What a country ?

    Voters are dumb. Politicians don’t talk the truth. JVP, JHU are all hiding the truth.

    SLFP and UNP know they can not win an election as individual parties. So, they want alliances to win the election.

    A suggestion re the Lion Flag : The two stripes on the Lion Flag ought to be re-defined. They ought to represent only strife in any form : internal dissent, disease, poverty, terrorism, natural disasters etc. These are common items that act negatively for all in Lanka. The Sword of Justice for All ought to face and counter all these negative items.

    It is because the educated and knowledgeable Sinhala Buddhists stayed away from politics due to JVP & LTTE activities that we face a crisis today. However, it is not too late to save the country if the right reasons are presented and assertive and life supportive actions taken.

    Also, take note of the fact that today’s UNP is not the earlier UNP of DS’s time ! It is a weird concoction of Fascism and nit wit actions.

    A S !!! May be three more qualifications would be an added attraction for applicants, vis-à-vis :-

    11 Should be an extra ordinary Mathematician. He must be able to bring our 20,000 Villagers, to 2500 Villages, to form a POKURURU GAMMANA. Then that 2500 villages he should be able to reduce it to 10 TEN PAKURU GAMMANA, which he should envision to control from the Prime Ministers Office. In the process of making this PAKURU GAMMANA, he should envision, the he will not FUP UCK the poor villagers simple, peaceful innocent lives, and move them from their Lands and Homes, and rock the boat for their family life.

    12 He should be a Master Bluffer to Hood-wink the Srilankan Nation, (MAHAJANAYA ), that he needs 60 MONTHS to export CARS and SHIPS, like Destroyers, Frigates, Air Craft Carriers, Merchant Vessels, and Cruise Liners.

    13 He should have the Vision to make Colombo City very much LARGER to be equal to a City like CHENNAI, encompassing all the Suburban Towns like Homagama, Nittambuwa, Seeduwa Kalutara etc to form ONE CITY. He should have dreams to do this. This New Large City, will have Industrial Villages adjoining each other, and will provide Thousands of jobs. This will ensure increase in income for one and all.

    The Sinhala Buddhist of Sri Lanka is the PROTECTIVE SHIELD under which the Sovereignty of Sri Lanka SAFELY rests.

    If the Sinhala Buddhists are divided, that shield becomes TOO WEAK RESIST the sword thrusts of Sri Lanka’s enemies continually attempting the penetrate our DEFENSES.

    On that DAY OF INFAMY, January 8, 2015, 200 years after that PREVIOUS DAY OF INFAMY on March 14, 1815 when Sri Lanka lost her CROWN, the Sinhala Buddhist GOT CONFUSED at to where HIS DUTY LAY; that day MUST NEVER BE REPEATED! NEVER AGAIN!

    Today, Our Motherland’s enemies, both internal and external, are AGAIN ASSAULTING the electoral gates to deliver the COUP-DE-GRACE to our heroes who fell on that DAY OF INFAMY on January 8, 2015.

    INSTEAD, let the EVER PATRIOTIC Sinhala Buddhists of Heladiva RISE AGAIN, asipatha held aloft, and cut off the HEADS of these Anti-National TRAITORS, RESTORING Mother Lanka’s CROWN to her hallowed head!

    Untold GENERATIONS of our DESCENDENTS will ask us what we did on August 17, 2015 to PROTECT and DEFEND our Motherland for them, as our ancestors did for us.

    CAST YOUR VOTE for President Mahinda Rajapaksa and the United Peoples Freedom Alliance on August 17, 2015, and REGAIN our LOST NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY!



    To the ALWAYS FAITHFUL Patriots,

    A Heartfelt Tribute in Gratitude!

    Semper Fidelis, Patriots of Lanka

    By Ananda-USA

    Our Motherland, resplendent Sri Lanka,
    Hallowed be thy name!
    Thy children flock today to vote,
    To preserve thy immortal flame!

    The Lion Flag flutters proudly aloft,
    To remind us this freedom’s day!
    Our duty to keep thee, safe and strong,
    As our forefathers did yesterday!

    A Mahinda Rajapaksa by deed and word,
    Strode forth boldly to eternal fame!
    To lead his people to a safer world,
    When all others retreated in shame!

    AND HERE COMES the Catholic Bishops, RIGHT on CUE with their advice in CODE to their FLOCK.

    YAMAPALANAYA CLUE #1: “The 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which has given additional powers to the Elections Commissioner, there seems to be an atmosphere conducive to a free and fair election.”

    WE KNOW, that this is not IMPARTIAL advice for ALL citizens of Sri Lanka, but a CODED MESSAGE directed at the Catholics to remind them what has been preached from the PULPIT and to HIDE the CODED message from others:


    Bah! The Catholic Bishops of Sri Lanka have NEVER TAKEN a PATRIOTIC STAND …. EVER!

    Catholic Bishops urges Sri Lankans to choose worthy candidates

    Aug 01, Colombo: The Catholic Bishops’ Conference in Sri Lanka has urged all citizens to do their utmost in choosing worthy candidates for parliament in the forthcoming general elections.

    In a statement, the Catholic Bishops’ Conference in Sri Lanka noted that through this, the public can get the government it deserves.

    The Catholic Bishops Conference in Sri Lanka also urged the citizens to think of the country and the present and future generations and act with great responsibility in ensuring that they elect the representatives with great care, and thereby ensure that the country has a government genuinely interested in the development of the mother land.

    “Catholic Church has always upheld the importance of electing worthy candidates to the legislature as the people’s representatives and adds that educational background, general culture, integrity and honesty, respect to the rule of law are qualities that should characterize those who are aspiring to political leadership,” it said.

    “The 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which has given additional powers to the Elections Commissioner, there seems to be an atmosphere conducive to a free and fair election.”

    The Catholic Bishops’ Conference in Sri Lanka emphasizes that the traditional affiliation and loyalty to one’s own political party should not be the sole criterion in the exercise of franchise.
