Yahaplanaya MaraPalanaya or Gotapalanya or Champikapalanaya  ??

Sri Lankan have short memories like fish !

People who used to talk about evils of Mara Palanaya ot Gotapalanya is now talking about sins of Yahapalanaya  and may even be of Champikapalnaya ?

Few years back I was traveling by car along Thalawathugoda Road to Hokandara passing a house of Ex UNP ,Ex DP of General and  (I do not know where  he is now ) ,there is a paddy field where the rain  water catchment flows crossing the road to Talangama Tank which SLLRDC is dredging to form a  canal to facilitate storm water flow  towards Ambatale .

There was a part of the paddy field filled forcibly  by a politician .SLLRDC warned him several times in 2013 -2014  and before ,and yet he filled it . SLLRDC as per their legal rights to remove the earth in a filled area without permission  , deployed heavy machinery and removed the earth .

Politician protested ,but Super Secretary who was in charge of SLLRDC went in person to supervise the removal of filled material and made a hole in the paddy field .

Presumably to show that he means business and he does not give a hoot !

Everyone was happy and elated and whispered to each other  very good                   ( Honda wadey’ )

Today in 2017, I was passing by the same location ,( I keep watching paddy lands being filled as I was the Chairman of SLLRDC ) I saw the same dredged Paddy land being filled again during weekends and lorries were unloading earth .I noted that filling is taking place close to the canal which has a  very restricted culvert. This road is earmarked for widening and there will be a wider bridge and a wider canal.But the current filling and any construction will hinder any further storm water drainage to Talangama Tank.

Obviously I  became irritated and called SLLRDC and complained .

Do you know the answer ………”We cannot do much ,,Culprits have got all the permissions except their’s ! and it may be imminent that SLLRDC  may have to cave in .”

How do you like Yahapalanaya ? May be Gotapalnaya is better ?

    Ado Katussa (Lorenzo-swamy)

    Rajithapalanaya? BS! What ganja are you smoking now?

    Rajitha is HATED by too many people, and does not have public support outside the JHU constituency, that is now in disarray. Rajitha us unelectable!

  6. Lorenzo Says:


    Good one.

    Took me sometime to realize.

  7. Lorenzo Says:


    Rajitha has NOTHING to do with JHU.

    He has support in UNP, SLFP, CWC, SLMC and TNA.

    I do NOT support this ROTTEN man but truth to be told he has support within this ROTTEN SYSTEM. He has MASTERED it.

    Next president is Rajitha like it or not. From inside sources I hear he is planning to THREATEN MR and crowd to support him or end up in JAIL! Have you heard many MPs talking AGAINST him? He is running the show. NOT Run-nil. NOT Sira.

    He BROKERED the Sira SWAN alliance. I was there!
