Vasu blames Sirisena for helping the illegal sale of the Hambantota Port
Posted on August 1st, 2017

Translated by : A.A.M.NIZAM – MATARA

A giant figure of the Joint opposition and a leader of the Leftists in Sri Laanka, the Ratnapura district United People’s Alliance parliamentarian Mr. Vasudeva Nanayakkara said that Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe should take the full responsibility for giving Haambantota Port to China.  He says that the Port was sold by making SLFP National List Ministers Mahinda Samarasinghe and Sarath munugama as Ranil’s stooges.

Addressing a media conference MP Nanayakkara said that the people of this country have well understood the policies of the United National Party and in order to implement these policies the reactionaries of this country established United National Party governments from time to time since 1948.  He said that UNP policies are especially based on mainly implementing on privatization, reactionary foreign policy, and neo liberal democracy and it is the responsibility of that party leader to implement these policies.

Accordingly profit making and not making State Institutions in this country including the Tractor Corporaation, Cement Corporation, Plywood Corporation, Wellawatte and Thulhiriya  textile Mills, United Motors, National Insurance Corporation, State Steel Corporation, Oils and Fats Corporation, Kelani Tyre Corporation, State Distillery Corporation were sold to the Private Sector.  By today some of those people who purchased some of these State institutions have even sold its movable and immovable properties and defrauded several million rupees to the Banks in respect of loans they have taken.

It was the United National Party that appointed the President of this country on 8th January 2015.  It selected a person to implement its policies that were interrupted in 1994 and 2004.  That was to implement their policies through Ranil Wickremasinghe or his nominees. For this purpose, to topple the then extremely powerful progressive government led by the Sri Lanka Freedom Party they selected Maithripala Sirisena who was the General Secretary of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party then.

Sometimes, if Nimal Siripala de Silve who was a powerful personality in the Rajapaksa government then agreed to the proposals of Ranil and the reactionaries, he would have been the United National Party sponsored President of this country today instead of Sirisea..

Therefore, whoever who is in the government it is a government of implementing UNP policies and in that government despite wearing a blue coloured attire, it will not be a government implementing Bandaranaike policies, or progressive or Leftist policies. It is just like by going former Minister Muslim Imtitias Bakeer Markar to Ananda College in Colombo or former Minister Buddhist Dharmadasa Banda to Zahira College in Maradana. Such visits will not make Ananda College in Colombo a Nuslim School or Zahira College in Maradana a Buddhist School.

Just because Maithree or SLFP Ministers are in the governmet it will not become a government upholding the Bandaranaike policies or Progressive policies.  At the same time, Ranil or any other UNP leader has not set their foot at the SLFP Headquarters at Darley Road.   But, President Maithripala Sirisena has visited the UNP Headquartwes before he became the President and after he became the President.

The Chairman of the committee appointed to sell the Hmbantota port was the SLFP Nationalist MP Dr, Sarath Amunugama.  He is the Minister in charge of special projects in this government.  The Minister who implemented the sale of the Hmbantota port was the SLFP Nationalist MP Mahinda Samarasinghe.  The person who signed the sale agreement of the Hmbantota port was Parakrama Dissnanaayake who was appointed to the post of the Chirman of the Ports Authority by the said Minister Mahinda Samarasinghe.

The sale has been carried out violting all government rules and regulations pertaining to the procurement procedures and against the Ports Authority Act.  This sale ha been implemented illegally by a committee comprising the Secretary to the Ministry of Finance Dr. R.H.S.Sanaratunge, the Secretary to the Ministry of Ports and Navigation Mr. L.P.Jayampaathi, the Secretary to the Ministry of Strategic Development and international Trade Chandani warden, the Secretary to the Cabinet Sumith Abeysinghe, and the Secretary to the Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation Mr. Nihal Somaweera.

All these appointments have been made by Mr. Maithripala Sirisena as the Executive President of this counry and as the Pressident of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party. Actually it was possible to halt the sale of the Hambantota Port, at least temporarily. because of former Minister of Ports Mr. Aruna Ranatunga who came to parliament by obtaining UNP votes from the Gampaha district and the Ports Authority Chaairman appointed by him.

By looking at this it seems that Mr. Vasudeva Nanayakkara who is the Ratnapura District U PFA MP and a representative of the joint opposition has a wrong impression about the Hambantota Harbour sale.  That is because he is also a Lawyer it is like filing a case against the second accused by overlooking the 1st accused.

It should speciaaly be mentioned even a Provincial Council in this country is not empowered to offer even an inch of land in this country even to a poor person.  It is only the Executive President of this county who is empowered with this authority.  Therefore it is hilarious to find saying that the Prime Minister sold a priceless harbour which is a national wealth together with nearly 5000 acres amounting to more than 1500 hectares.  Therefore, those who induce to appoint a National Economic Council overriding the Prime Minister’s Economic Committee and attempt to conceal this matter will earn the curse of several generations. They will earn the curse for contributing to carry out this crime.

    I am not sure the sale of Hambantota port to the Chinese was the right deal. Has anyone what should have been the right deal? What was Rajapaksa regime plan ? Working in state run corporations, I have an idea of the attitude of most of the employees many of who have the idea that they are paid only to come to work and they need overtime work to do the actual work.
    In order for a State owned enterprise to run efficiently and profitably the management, employees, the people and politicians
    of our country need to change their attitude.
