H.E. Maithripala Sirisena,

SLFP Party Leader.

Excellency Sir,

This is the “HEART” of the TRUE SLFP voters/supporters. It is time up that President Maithripala Sirisena should realize and recognize this peoples political power. HE. Maithripala Sirisena, please do not be misguided by the group of so-called SLFPers who are hanging around you and misguiding you ONLY for the benefits of portfolios and PERKS they can receive from you. Some of the biggest and corrupted SLFP politicians who have the worst track record of being involved in corruption and amazing large amounts of wealth, hoodwinking MR during the last regime have found their way to become your close associates and your political saviours. They will pretend to be with you as long as it helps then cover-up their corruption and misdeeds of amazing vast amounts of wealth as always highlighted by many “Anti-Corruption Movements, reported to the FCID and subjected to be probed by institutions of the State that are empowered to do so. Some of them may be around MR too. For them, the ENMITY between Maithri and Mahinda is the best political climate to thrive and mislead the poor SLFP voters to gain entry into elected political positions in the Democratic institutions of Parliament, Provincial Councils, Pradesiya Sabahs etc., and to find positions for their kith and kin and “henchaiyaas” in government statutory boards, ministries and the diplomatic services.

The SLFP needs YOU H.E and MR to make the SLFP the STRONGEST POLITICAL entity in Sri Lanka. I am a Muslim and we believe “FORGIVENESS IS GODLY”. In Buddhism “VYRAYA” is denounced. Other religions also preach similarities. So why NOT move towards forgiving each other, forget “VENGENCE” and join hands and make both these forces to become the SLFP that was the “POOR MAN’S” political platform and power initiated by the late SWRD Bandaranaike and nourished by the late Sirimavo R.D. Bandaranaike, which has served the poor man and the middle-class immensely, while being in power, supported by left movements in alliances. Nothing is permanent in this world. Do not forget that the late Madam Sirimavo R.D. Bandaranaike was de-franchised by the UNP and was expelled from parliament and banned from public office for seven years and made a political outcast to be rejected by the people who had once worshipped her during the 1977 – 1980 era. Madam Sirimavo R.D. Bandaranaike carrying the SLFP fighting against her own children’s opposition found her way back to power. During those dark years of the 1980, having NOT deserted the leader of the SLFP then, when almost all so-called stalwarts dumped her in the political dustbin, I was one among the very few SLFP Stalwarts since 1969 who visited her constantly at Rosmead Place and stood by her. Later I was appointed as the SLFP district organizer for Trincomalee District. My other Muslim colleague was Dr. Maharoof, the then SLFP district organizer for Harispattuwa and Vice President of the SLFP who encouraged Madam Sirimavo Bandaranaike to continue her political engagements. In 1994 the SLFP along with its allies came back to power and she, though had to be the Prime Minister, gave the opportunity to Madam Chandrika.It was again a conspiracy by JR Jayawardene who wanted the SLFP to get into turmoil, when in reality, it was the leader of the Party that won the elections who should have been invited and appointed the PM then. It was again FORGIVENESS” and UNITY” that gave us victory. SLFP Stalwarts like us, may NOT be seen hanging around our leaders, but we are the BRICKS” that have built the FOUNDATION OF THE PARTY” through thick and thin. The UNP would be naturing you to split the SLFP, but please do not fall prey to this trap.

H.E. Maithripala Sirisena, Sir, please in the name of keeping the SLFP united and strong, please both you and H.E. Mahinda Rajapaksa should join hands to form a strong SLFP government.

    Nizam You are one of the rare Muslims I have been reading arround 1998 in the Lankaweb, who stood strongly with the people of Sri Lanka in support of SLFP and Socialist Policies.

    I read your letter to the President Sirisena, but Nizam it is really pearls before the blind. He is eaten up with a terrible inferiority complex and will never agree to join hands with the former President Mahinda Rajapakse. This man has nothing to give to the people intelectually or politically.

    He always refers to the other countries of the world to say that his policies are akin to any of those countries of the west. But all that is just talk, like his saying that Buckingham palace is in New York. So unless some natural causes intervene we will not be able to change Ranil carrying out his distructive policies selling Sri Lanka both to India and the West. While Sirisena keeps playing his violin.
