Sirisena, Wicramasinghe and a money launderer’s Budget.
Posted on December 12th, 2015

By Charles.S.Perera

The Budget Presented to the Parliament by the Finance Minister of Yahapalanaya is a complete sellout of Sri Lanka to Foreigners. The Budget is now in Committee stage in the Parliament. The SLFP Parliamentarians who have accepted Ministries should give them up and join rank with the UPFA rather than betray the country and the people who voted for them. The President Sirisena is not the country, therefore the loyalty to the country is greater than the loyalty to the President Sirisena.

In this Parliament of today controlled by the yahapalanaya Ranil Wickramasinghe the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka behaves like a clown. He calls the Members of the Parliament by all types of names –pimps, gypsies, donkeys, beggars and monkeys.  He likes to laugh at his own clowning.  Ranil does not seem to understand that his fashion of behaviour in the Parliament is not in keeping with the position he holds as the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka.

As a Prime Minister he should have patience, controlled temper and wise, intelligent repartees.  It is not his coat and tie that make him respectable but the way he behaves and speaks.  He should not speak hatefully of the former President who was a great leader, and Ranil should speak more respectfully when he refers to him.

The latest clowning of Ranil was when he called the parliamentarians criticising the Budget card board” patriots.  All these insults to the representatives of the people in Parliament are indirect insults to the people of the country.  This shows to what extent the PM does not care either the Parliamentarians nor the people of the country .  Ranil Wickramasinghe the Prime Minister has become a law unto himself.

 Unfortunately Ranil Wickramasinghe is a man without a vision, a disadvantage to a man expected to decide on the destiny of a nation. His policy statement  is not different from that which he had presented in  2004. Some right wing intellectuals” point out that the Budget present by Ravi Karunanayake contradicts Prime Minister’s policy statement. Ranil Wickramasinghe often makes strange promises. In some of his earlier election campaigns he promised gold chains and bracelets  to young people if he was elected and recently he said he will make the farmers wear jeans.  It also  shows the extent to which Ranil Wickramasinhe’s  mind is warped  and West oriented.

This is the man that calls representatives of the people in Parliament  cardboard patriots” because they are defending Sri Lanka against  the yahapalana  political leadership of archaic mentality who has joined hands with the West to destroy Sri Lanka that had remained a unitary state with a Buddhist culture for over 2500 years,  which had accepted other communities in good faith to share this land.

Sirisena the President of Yahapalanaya, is the duplicate of the Prime Minister except for the clowning part. He lacks humour, because his mind is burning with jealousy and hatred. They  speak of democracy but democracy left Sri Lanka on the 8th January,2015 when the democratic and the popular people’s President was defeated at the Presidential election.

From the day one of his election Sirisena the newly elected President broke all norms of democracy and  acted completely in breach of the Constitution of Sri Lanka. He reminds one of Musila of the Jataka story Guttila and Musila”. Sirisena like Musila  has already broken the first few strings of the seven stringed violin, it remains few more strings to prove he is better than the master. He has played with all the seven strings so badly, there is no saying that he will do better with  what remains.

Sirisena’s  swearing in of Ranil Wickramasinghe as his Prime Minister when there was already a Prime Minister  was his blundering entry into the high office of President which marked his incompatibility. It was  a further distasteful confirmation of his indecent excessive greed for power for which he walked away stealthily like a thief in the night  back stabbing the leader of the political party that  was the cradle of his political life to join hands with his political enemies to change the path of  development and progress Sri Lanka was taking to divert it to a disastrous political abyss from which it will never be able to climb back.

Beside Sirisena’s incompetence he has allowed himself to be manipulated by scheming self ambitious  Christians and ugly revengeful Western lackeys. Sirisena has joined hands with them, to  sacrifice Sri Lanka to satisfy their ego.  They are  taking the President  Mahinda Rajapakse , his family, friends and all in some way connected to him to discredit them, label them corrupt and take them to courts or merely  smear them with false accusations to take away the love and affection the grateful  people of Sri Lanka have for them.

Hemantha Warnakulasuriya PC said in TV program Pethkada, that Mahinda Rajapakse was different after the elimination of terrorists, and that he took himself for a King.  One can imagine the immense pride, great satisfaction,  relief and happiness he had when  the end of terrorism was announced to him. In a way one cannot blame the former president feeling like a King as he was the only political leader who was able to eliminate terrorism and bring whole of Sri Lanka  under one flag , like King Dutugamunu who united the country after chasing away the Cholas who had occupied the then capital and the environment of Sri Lanka for nearly 25 years.

In the same breath Warnakulasuriya said that JR Jayawardhana too  acted like a King, when he became the  President in 1978.  But that was JR’s egoism. JR had done  nothing glorious  to Sri Lanka to claim that right. He only made matters worse for Sri Lanka after  his period of Presidency.  Of course Hemantha Warnakulasuriya has to be careful not to praise Mahinda Rajapakse, lest he would be taken by Ranil Wickramasinghe’s FCID for questioning and remanding.  That is what Sri Lanka has become today after the pretended Yahapalanaya of Sirisena.  People fear to speak the truth in respect of the former President.  There is no democracy any more in Sri Lanka it is a dictatorship and a police state of Sirisena, Wickramasinghe and Chandrika.

Sri Lanka is going down the drain to disaster, but Ranil and his lackey Mangala send FCID after the former President or any one connected to the former government .  That is the only thing Ranil seems to be doing,  all the rest are visionless ideas he had when he was Prime Minister last time in 2001-2004.

It is better leave Chandrika without of comments, as one sees her boiling jealousy, anger and hatred in her distorted face, reminding one of the Goddess Kali of the Hindu pantheon of Gods. Chandrika claims nobility being a Bandaranaike, which may cause the skeletal remains of  her dead parents rattle in their coffins.

If Sirisena is a President who respects democracy and good governance, he should have stood aloof, independent and not interfering in political battles  amoung political parties during the general election of August,2015.  He should have known despite his treachery in leaving his own political party stealthily to join with the UNP, that once he is  elected the President with the massive vote of the Tamils and Muslims he nevertheless, becomes the President of all the people in Sri Lanka and therefore he should remain independent, silent, non-interfering without taking sides with any community or a political party.

But he did the opposite by doing all he could to insult, discredit, discourage and stop the political carrier of  his former political party leader Mahinda Rajapakse  in addition to  the wounds he inflicted on him the day he walked away in the night like a rogue to give himself up to Ranil Wickramasinghe, Chandrika Kumaratunga, Champika Ranawaka and Mangala Samaraweera, to make of him a President of the reactionary forces, his political enemies.

Venerable Maduluwawe Sobhitha thero, when he saw how what he expected of Sirisena and the united force he helped to build against the former President had been distorted and was selling Sri Lanka to foreign forces, he spoke against it.  Sirisena and Ranil Wickramasinghe saw the danger Venerable Sobitha posed  to their  Yahapalanaya. The venerable Bikkhu who was taken suddenly ill was packed off to a hospital in Singapore from where he never returned alive.  Some say the same thing happened to another venerable monk who wanted reforms – the Late Venerable Soma Thero.

Sirisena was sure that Mahinda Rajapakse will win  at the general election on the 17 August,2015. He therefore had to forget that he was the President of Sri Lanka  before he became the President of the SLFP and the UPFA, and began doing all he could to stop Mahinda Rajapakse win at the elections.  Sirisena announced to Mahinda Rajapakse that he as the President will not  make him the Prime Minister even if he wins at the election, and named some members of the UPFA who are suitable to be appointed as  Prime Minister.  Then on the eve of the General elections he sacked the General Secretaries of the SLFP and UPFA and appointed two of his lackeys in their place.

Can all those actions of Sirisena the President of Sri Lanka be called democratic or a mark of good governance ?  Naturally the anti Sri Lanka foreign governments applaud his Presidency as democratic and proof of good governance, but the people in the villages  do not acclaim him as such.  But they are unable to change things as democracy has been taken away from them and a police state installed with the connivance of the Western Governments.

Yahapalanaya is  a government like the caravan that goes on  however much the dogs bark.

All  Sirisena  did was  with the one intention of  making UNP leader Ranil Wickramasinghe the member of the Mont Pelerin Society,  the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka as it was he who took him out of the political shadow into lime light of politics.

The ego centred SLFP Parliamentarians who have joined hands with the visionless UNP  do not see,  in their greed  to hold onto Ministries and to keep away from the feared  Ranil Wickramasinghe’s FCID,  are becoming a part of the UNP plan, (to destabilise Sri Lanka which had been brought out of the clutches of terrorism and developed to be a middle income country), to handover  Sri Lanka to the USA and the West to make it once again a dependent country. In that effort Yahapalanaya goons have distanced Sri Lanka from China and embraced India and the West. UK has prome

Yahapalanaya in the eyes of Maithripala Sirisena is making speeches and meeting  great white personalities of the world and shake their un-gloved hands.  He is happy with that , the dangers that come to Sri Lanka, from the actions taken by the Pelerin Ranil Wickramasinghe , Mangala Samaraweera and Ravi Karunanayake,  he  is blissfully unaware.  It is normal with a man despite having been a Minister of Health in Mahinda Rajapakse’s government, whose knowledge of  worldly matters  is limited. He even thought the  Buckingham Palace was in New York.  He is happy with little things repeating before assembled gatherings  his great achievement of shaking the un-gloved hand of the Queen.

How can the Sri Lankan people expect good governance from this cabal led by Maithripala Sirisena ?

It is those  others rich and self interested Sinhala of the business community , self interested academics, perhaps the Catholics because the Church demanded their support for a UNP government, teachers who expected a Rs.10,000,00 increase to their basic salary , and others who wanted a change and the Tamils and Muslims the major contributors of vote for Maithripala Sirisena’s victory at the Presidential election, and those others who  wanted a change from Mahinda Rajapakse led government,  having partly swallowed the rumours prepared for people’s consumption by  the experts of the American CIA, and those who fear being taken away by Ranil’s FCID, that support Yahapalanaya directly or indirectly in silence.

Ranil’s FCID and accusation of former government culture  has become much worse than the White Van culture the Yahapalanaya Ministers often refer to making themselves knights in shining armor.  Mont Pelerin Ranil Wickramasinghe is the agent of the USA, with his lackey Mangala Samaraweera all out to sell Sri Lanka to the West.

Under the Yahapalanaya Government, Sri Lanka  seems already occupied by the West. UK  offers 6 million UK pounds to upgrade Sri Lanka Armed Forces appointing UK Military Attaché in New Delhi to  overseer how the funds are used.  Norway in the  meantime is to send  an expert to help Sri Lanka in the preparation of a New constitution.

Sirisena’s Yahapalanaya is like the Marchal Petain’s Vichy Government of France which collaborated with the Germans  during their occupation of France. Mangala Samaraweera and Ranil Wickramasinghe sponsored at the Geneva UNHRCouncil the USA resolution against Sri Lanka

Mangala Samaraweera said very proudly as a great achievement that 725 of the Rajapakse clan is under accusation by the Ranil’s FCID.  It is on that falsehood of corruption allegations the Yahapalanaya Government has built their pseudo democratic government and that for them is the  only means of  survival as a government and have the protection of the West.

Mount Pelerin Ranil Wickramasinghe following the USA regime change instructions from the CIA and the USA Embassy in Sri Lanka tried all possible tricks of the trade to change the Rajapaksa Regimaya, with rumours of  White Van kidnappings, disappearance of journalists, killing of Lasantha  Wickramatunga. It was all to accuse the Mahinda Rajapakse Government and make the people rise against it, like the Arab Spring in Tunisia and Egypt. But the people of Sri Lanka saw through it and refused to rise against their beloved President Mahinda Rajapakse , Gotabhaya Rajpakse and the Rajapakse Government.

USA thought  Mount Pelerin Wickramasinghe lacked the intelligence to change Rajapakse regime despite their well thought out plans, with an on going resolution against Sri Lanka Armed Forces for violation of human rights and war crimes.  Finally USA arranged to educate  Pelerin Wickramasinghe in Regime Change Tactics.

Ceylontoday of 9 April, 2014 reported  in an article Harvard and Ranil: Worlds apart”

UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe is reportedly on a study tour at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to learn the art of toppling governments. After his stint at the MIT, the Opposition Leader will head to Harvard University, one of the finest places of academic and research excellence, on a lecturing tour. That is at least what his acolytes at the UNP say………………Nonetheless, Wickremesinghe needs to do some soul-searching during his stint at two great American universities. He could then see that he himself has been the main handicap for his own Party, the UNP……………The good thing is that those MIT dons would realize that Ranil is the real obstacle and they could well suggest that he should step down from the Party leadership……………..As for the so-called invite extended to Ranil by Harvard, we have our reservations. This could very well be another gimmick by his spin doctors to hoodwink the gullible locals that Ranil is a sage, even sought after by the world’s greatest academia. Wickremesinghe should not fool himself believing that people will buy that silly joke.”

However Mont Pelerin Ranil Wickramasinghe came back from his  stint in Masachusette Institute of Technology  named as a Robert E. Wilhelm Fellow. He immediately announced his intention to contest at the next Presidential election.

Now with a qualification from MIT, Pelerin Wickramasinghe  changed his tactics to oust the Rajapakse Regime , accusing Mahinda Rajapakse making his government a family affair and accused him for corruption and bribing the LTTE  Slowly this corruption theme against Mahinda Rajapakse and his family gained ground.  Every member of the UNP leadership made refernce to Mahinda Rajapakse’s corruption and enriching his family  and called  it a one family government.

Atlast CIA the Masachusette Institute of Technology andf Pelerin Ranil Wickramasinghe have all together found the solution for the hitherto unfound found solution for the regime change in Sri Lanka.

They had learnt it from the World war two, …Rumours are a perfect medium for unacknowledgeable clandestine propaganda and deception. They are incredibly hard to trace and near impossible to prove their origin; they can spread like the proverbial wildfire. There is no one in the world who does not relish passing on gossip or a titbit of “inside” information. Even in today’s news saturated world the populations of the Western democracies, who believe they are more enlightened and less gullible than ever before, still fall for the most ridiculous and often abhorrent conspiracy theories. …..”

Stories of Mahinda Rajapakse’s corruption  were heard from every speech made by leaders of the Opposion,  news reports, and TV political debates.  No doubt after elimination of terrorism the President Rajapakse was able to get aid not in Millions but in billions, therefore that was easy to make people wonder whether with that amount of money flowing in could there be some truth in the rumours being spread by UNP and JVP about the corruption of the Rajapakse Government.  People knew that Ravi Karunanayake, Karu Jayasuriaya all were enriched by small scale corruptions, and Ranil was accused of the Batalanda Torture camps, but yet the rumours of corruption against the President Mahinda Rajapakse continued  even the media swallowed it.  This was, a psychological warfare.

President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s  victory over terrorism , bringing freedom and security, massive the infrastructure constructions, propelling the country to a middle income country status , became secondary to the rumours of corruption.  This was partly responsible for the people of middle range intelligence as well to think of a change when the elections came around.

President Mahinda Rajapakse or even  his brothers leave alone other family members were certainly not corrupt. Rajapakse family was  well known and they were a honest family. At the beginning the  senior  members of the family took to politics at the demand of the people.  Even Chamal Rajapakse was invited by Mrs.  Sirimavo Bandaranayake to take to politics.  But people like to smear dirt on people. And falsehood is readily accepted, casting doubt on  truth.

Though many accusations have been made against Rajapaksas and their contacts, for bribery and corruption nothing has been proved against any one of them. It is possible that FCID may plant evidence to take at least one of the Rajapakse’s into custody. It would not be a surprise  when we think of the cruelty of the man behind the torture camps of Batalanda and constant reference to Rajapakse as the reason for all the failures of the Yahapalanaya Government.

But if Mahinda Rajapakse misused funds how could he have  left behind such a developed country and a financially sound heritage six years after elimination of terrorism.  People are not naive to believe these stories of corruption levelled against  the former President and those who were close to him.  People are happy with what  Rajapaksas contributed for their security , freedom and for improving the quality of their lives.

The Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake who is not unknown for financial corruption with the sale of Sathosa to a private party when he was in another Government of Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe. He had been accused for money laundering.  But the case against him was decided in a strange manner.  Please read on:

The case was postponed by High Court Judge Devika de Livera Tennakoon when Defence Counsel Reinzie Arsekualaratne informed the judge that Minister Karunanayake was unable to be present before the Courts yesterday as he was due to present the 2015 interim budget before the parliament. As there was no objection from the prosecution, the case was postponed to March 4.

The Attorney General indicted Nexia Corporation, Linton Sirisoma and Karunanayake for allegedly facilitating money laundering in violation of Central bank regulations and the Exchange Control Act by depositing Rs. 390 million in a Standard Chartered bank account, which had been later used to purchase shares of the Union Bank. The transfer had been made by Sri Lankan American billionaire and hedge fund dealer Raj Rajarathnam.

During the hearings it was alleged that Karunanayake was directly involved in the fraud and that he intervened to collect the funds once the money was deposited in Sri Lanka.

Exchange Control is the function of the Central Bank. The Central Bank is governed by the Monetary Board. The Secretary/Finance (Treasury) is a member of the Monetary Board. The Minister of Finance is the Boss of the Secretary/Finance. How nice to have a person charged with Exchange Control crimes as Finance Minister a good governance activist told Colombo Telegraph. ”

The Attorney General indicted Karunanayake for allegedly facilitating money laundering in violation of Central Bank regulations and the Exchange Control Act by depositing Rs.390 million in a private bank account, which had been later used to purchase shares of another bank.

While announcing the judgement judge stated that Attorney General Department is permitted to file another case on this matter.

According to Judge Irangani, the decision was reached upon taking into consideration the objections raised by the lawyers of the defence with regard to anomalies in the indictment produced against Minister Ravi Karunanayake. Justice Perera also said that the Attorney General has the capability to file a case once again and that an appeal could also be filled by the AG, if the need arises.

Minister of Finance Ravi Karunanayake spoke to the media following the court hearing, saying that the court case which was filed without any proper reason has proven futile. The minister also stated that while he is present at courts for the 27th time with his lawyers, the former defense secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa is running away.

Today’s judgement was also the final judgment handed down by justice Irangani Perera as she bid farewell to her service as a judge and retired following 31 years of service.

Interesting isn’t it ? There is no smoke without fire. What ever the judgement the readers  could come to their own conclusion about the honesty of the Finance Miniter of the Yaha Palanaya Government.  If one had watched some of the TV Political programs such  as Derana 360”, Satana” or Salanakuna” in which Ravi Karunanayake appeared, one would have seen how he responded to questions and  what an unreliable character he is, evading issues asking counter questions, giving evasive ambiguous answers.

He has no compunction even if he is to  sell Sri Lanka to foreigners or divide  the island to allow the Tamils to have a separate State.  In Sri Lanka every one speaks of his Tamil origin , now of course even the Wikipedia has made him a full blooded Roman Catholic Sinhala. But he behaves like a Tamil. He laughed at the Sri Lanka Armed Forces when they were engaged risking their lives to eliminate terrorism to bring peace and security to Sri Lanka. Whenever  he  refers to the former President he just calls him Rajapakse disrespectfully. A Buddhist Sinhala would refer to him more respectfully. He is a friend of Raj Rajaratnam who financed terrorist  LTTE.

The Governor of the Central Bank  Arjuna Mahendra who is a friend of his is also a friend of Raj Rajaratnam.  What part the Finance Minister played in the Bond scam is not known ? But no one speaks any more of the 2 billion loss  in the Central Bank bond Scam and Arjuna Mahendra  the friend of the Finance Minister who was directly involved  in it continues to be the Governor of the Central Bank.

But theYahapalanaya cabal  easily speaks of the corruption of Mahinda Rajapakse and how about speaking for a change of the corruption of Ravi Karunanayake and Ranil Wickramasinghe who may have profited from the 2 billion Rupees involved in the Bond scam. If they are honest they should  appoin another man as the  Governor of Central Bank.

Ravi Karunanayake’s Budget is a complete sell out of Sri Lanka to Foreigners.  Whether the land is sold outright or  given on 99 year lease amounts to the same.  Generations of Sri Lankans will lose the use of these lands. Who has not heard of United Fruit Companies which shaped  some of the countries  in Latin America where they implanted themselves, buying land on 99 year leases ?

When the Banana Company arrives in Macondo, the jungle town in Gabriel García Márquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude,” it brings with it first modernity and then doom. Endowed with means that had been reserved for Divine Providence in former times,” García Márquez writes, the company changed the pattern of the rains, accelerated the cycle of harvests and moved the river from where it had always been.” It imported dictatorial foreigners” and hired assassins with machetes” to run the town; it unleashed a wave of bullets” on striking workers in the plaza. When the Banana Company leaves, Macondo is in ruins.”

Sri Lanka is courting danger in leasing out  large land areas of 5000 acres for foreigners on 99 year leases.  The investors could completely change the culture and the minds of the people and bring in complete chaos into our country.

The government encourages handing over public enterprises as well to private companies.  They get loans from the West on conditions laid by the donor which would introduce more poverty. Sri Lanka should not be developed according to other countries. UNP cannot make Sri Lanka a Singapore or a Malaysia.  The Yahapalanaya has begun to change Sri Lanka into a rich foreigners play ground as Cuba was under Batista.

Aid from the West, IMF or World Bank come with conditions  against welfare for the poor. Under these conditions of the IMF and the World Bank Yahapalanaya will hand over hospitals, schools, water, etc. to private companies.  It would be a treachery against  the people of Sri Lanka  for any Parliamentarian to  vote in favour of this Budget.

This Budget is capitalist flavoured. The ordinary people of the country will be  made dependent on the rich.  The government servants will have less or no pensions as  government will have no sufficient income as the countries finances will be controlled by foreign companies, which will be the owners of land, public  establishments, institutions. Welfare facilities to the people will be decided by the foreign companies.

The Budget proposal of stopping pension rights and introducing a contributory pension system seems to be  dictated by the Western donor states. Stopping the distribution of clothes to school  children , and providing fertilisers to farmers substituting it for voucher or  a cash allowance, may help Western investors to provide clothes and manure at their price to farmers and school children.

If Mahinda Rajapaksa was the President today the country would have continued with development projects. There would have been a sound economic development. Only problem would have come from the reactionary West and America passing resolutions in Geneva threatening to take the Armed Forces to courts for war crimes. The President Mahinda Rajapakse would have been able to keep the TNA in its place and strengthened the Armed Forces and provided more security to the country. The Colombo Port city would have progressed. The Mahaseya in Anuradhapura  would have risen up to a respectable height. There would have been rich harvests.  Mattala Air port may have begun to function with more planes landing in it. The people would have been happy. Mahinda Rajapakse may have reduced prices of consumer articles…….

Yahapalanaya has made all that only a dream, the future of Sri Lanka is bleak… one would have never expected a year before.

The following members of the SLFP, if they have any self respect, and a modicum of patriotism should not vote for the Budget of Ravi Karunanayake and give up their Ministerial, Deputy Ministerial posts.  It would otherwise be sacrificing the interest of the country to fulfil personal interest.

    Same way.

    Lorenzo, where is RANIL PUNKS Birth Certificate? You gave his father and Mother’s name but no Birth certificate.

    1. Charles do not forget great people who gave Sri Lanka as a Republic, so this is what JRJ did. He brought Peter Kenaman as the labor minister. A communist and a fundamentalist. Garmini Dissanayake, Mr. Pramachandra and Lalith Athulathmudali to lead the country when he completes his term. Hinnawa Pramadesa interrupted that plan. So tell me why you say JRJ did not do any thing to the country? Why can’t JRJ act like a King he has an Kote Royal family roots. I can prove that.

    2. Ranil Punk has nothing to do with JRJ he was a adopted son.

    Re a VOUCHER SYSTEM for fertilizer for farmers :

    If the govt is the distributor of the fertilizer then there is no problem. If the fertilizer is distributed by private enterprises, then there will be complications and the project is lost and will be meaningless.


    The Budget is meant to push Lankans toward ultra Capitalism. The words “Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka” will become meaningless !

    Europe had two World Wars to become Socialist states. Even Britain is a Welfare State and USA has various ways to take care of their citizens e.g. Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare), etc. It seems quite possible that Yahap folk do not know this ??

    Ranil trying to deliver a 9 month gestation period Economic baby in 9 weeks ! It won’t work.

    **An Urgent Message to All Expats** [PLEASE READ and SPREAD THE WORD]

    The traitorous yahapalana government is going to pass an act to preserve “Racial and Religious Harmony”.

    The reality is that it will simply allow the true racists (TNA, SLMC) to go about unabated while any Sinhalese patriot who opposes this will be prosecuted.

    This will allow them to divide our country by giving the racist TNA/SLMC autonomy. A new constitution is also being drafted (by Norway!) that will allow them to completely dismember our motherland. Anyone who criticise this in Sri Lanka may end up in jail.

    PLEASE! Do whatever you can to stop this.

  6. Ramanie Says:

    Mjaya, I am with you 100%. We are powerless- the voters handed over the country to the traitors. Now, we can only appeal to our brothers and sisters in the forces- Please save our country again!!!!

  7. Kumari Says:

    “President Sirisena is not the country, therefore the loyalty to the country is greater than the loyalty to the President Sirisena.” Sirisena is not even the President of the SLFP, he has hijacked the SLFP under the advice of our enemies. I wonder whether he could read and understand his elections manifesto, SLFP Constitution or the Sri Lankan Constitution for that matter. He can only obey the orders given to him by Colombo educated Ranil and Chandrika who are the agents of the foreign conspirators. If not for Rajapakse, there is no country. Idiot Sirisena was used to get power to Ranil and Chandrika who would never win an election. Sirisena was the bait.

    “In a way one cannot blame the former president feeling like a King as he was the only political leader who was able to eliminate terrorism and bring whole of Sri Lanka under one flag”. He was the only leader in the modern civilized world to have eliminated terrorism. Therefore, he is more than a king. if the west is serious about eliminating terrorism from the world, our Commander in Chief and the tri-forces would have shown the way. No, that is not what they want. They want to punish us for eliminating terrorism. See, where ever they go, terrorism grows.

    After talking of so much corruption under Rajapakse, there is nothing that has gone to courts. The biggest robbery in the country (The CB bond scam) happened in the first hundred days of the Yahapalanaya, and none of the media are talking about it. After that curse only, that the country is going bankrupt now. The country that Rajapakse handed over to Sirisena was a rich country, now we are on the verge of bankruptcy.

    Sri Lanka Govts after Independence from Britain in 1948, laid welcome mats for Cheap Labor (esp for tea plantations), padding up the one and a half million Tamils of Dalit origin brought in as Indentured Labor by the Dutch & British.

    These welcome mats for Tamil illegal migrants are in the form of the Tamil Language (Official & National), birth certificates without Caste, the Prevention of Social Disabilities Act (1957), FREE education & Health care, etc.

    At least at this late stage remove Tamil as a N&O in Lanka. This is what Tamil Nadu would have done if in the same plight with millions of powerless Sinhala/Buddhists coming into TN offering the same perks ! Imagine Tamil Nadu offering Sinhala/Buddhists the Sinhala language, jobs, FREE education & Health care, and a host of other perks, no caste lines on birth certificates, etc. !! Now you get the picture ?

    Three points to note :

    * India is divided by language into sub-states.
    * Tamil speaking Muslims are TAMILS.
    * Ranil’s chunnel to India will finish off Lanka as millions of Tamil Dalits want out of Tamil Nadu due to Caste atrocities.

    All the strong forces opposing Separatism & ultra Capitalism must unite and act. Be innovative in this venture.

    Once the sell out of Lanka is done via the latest Budget, to regain Lanka will be quite an impossible task for generations to come.
    Our present day leaders in Yahap want to serve foreign countries more than the People of Lanka !

    If Change has to happen for the better, then form grass roots committees to do so with help from SLAS officers, without a sell out of Lanka.

    නොරැවටෙනු! ලොරෙන්සෝ කියන්නේ ටීඑන්ඒ කාරයෙක්. මහින්ද පරද්දන්න ගජරාමෙට වැඩකරපු මිනිහෙක්. ඔයා හැමතැනම මහින්දට විරුද්ධ කොමෙන්ට් දාන එක තමයි කරන්නේ. නිතරම අන්තර්ජාලේ ඕක තමයි කරන්නේ.

    This indeed is a money launderer’s budget. The joint opposition must promise to annul all land sales to foreigners when it comes to power. That way foreign elements buying land will be put off. The same approach must be taken for privatisations and illegal money brought to the island.

    Re the Budget : The proposed Lease to Foreigners of 5,000 acres each lot for a period of 99 yrs., is as good as Sale of Land to Foreigners.

    Where do the govt held Tea estates stand in this Budget ?
