President Maithripala Sirisena says that he is not prepared to govern the country with corrupt individuals.

The President made these comments while addressing the final election rally of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) in Polonnaruwa today (7).

The President emphasized that he is not ready to work with the corrupted politicians and further said that he will be committed to build the country while creating a clean political movement as he never allowed room for fraud, corruption and bribery in his political journey.

The President, with regret, recalled the criticisms made by the former President about the development process of the district, when he visited Polonnaruwa recently, and said that at present the process to make new transformations in the development activities of the villages as well as in the towns have been implemented broadly.

‘Today, the people rally around to build a clean political movement with that change’, he said while extending an invitation to the former President as well as to all who leveled criticisms to experience that change by visiting each village and town.

    Mr Sirisena you should get cleaned first before others. Look at your family. Are they clean??? Don’t talk bulshit, just hand over the government to a person who can do without grumbling and do shameful things to shame us in the eyes of the world community. Get lost Mr president.

    This man my3 is such a hypocrite. He is like the Princess in the play “Subha saha Yasa”. This is a play which I saw many years ago at John De Silva theatre. The Princess and the noble prince are going through the forest and they are set upon by a robber. In the fight that ensues between the prince and the robber, the prince overcomes the robber and asks the wife for the sword to kill the robber. Instead of giving the sword to the noble prince, she gives it to the robber who kills the noble prince. Then she tries to get friendly with the robber and he tells her that “if you could be a traitor to the fair and noble prince who has been with you for so long, what will you do to me ?”, and leaves her and goes off. My3 was with MR for over 40 years in the SLFP. In his greed for power when Ranil approached him, he decided to leave MR and join Ranil. He is nominally the head of the SLFP but is working against the party with the UNP. He gets his orders from Ranil.

    He is corrupt to the hilt and broke the law several times. He appointed Ranil as PM illegally, when there was a PM in power already. Then in the August general election, he broke the law again when he interfered in the election by announcing that even if MR wins he will not appoint him as a PM. He then further broke the law when he removed the people who were in the gazetted national list and appointed a bunch of losers to the parliament. He also prevented the COPE commission from taking against Arjun Mahendran after the first bond scam in 2015 by dissolving the parliament and prevented a no-confidence motion against Ranil. He allowed Arjun Mahendran to continue and the same bond scam happened again in 2016. Now, he is talking as if he is pure as driven snow and all the others are corrupt. What an absolute hypocrite and a piece of garbage who poses as a human being.

    Is my3 following orders from foreign countries, and if so, the reasons must be told.

    Last week, the World Bank announced SMEC’s international subsidiary had agreed to be banned from bidding on projects in South Asia after “a World Bank investigation which revealed misrepresentations to meet bidding requirements under World Bank-financed projects in Sri Lanka and India”. 

    “The investigation also found evidence indicating inappropriate payments made in relation to World Bank-financed projects in Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.”  Under a negotiated settlement, several SMEC subsidiaries will be barred from participating in World Bank projects for between six and 30 months. Australia has no debarment scheme to block companies alleged to have engaged in corruption from tendering on government financed projects.

    In August last year, Fairfax Media revealed the contents of internal company documents detailing SMEC’s overseas staff’s alleged bribery of officials in Sri Lanka to secure a $2.3 million aid-funded sewerage project in 2003 and a $2.2 million power plant project in Bangladesh in 2007.

    Company emails also reveal Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena and his adviser allegedly sought a political “donation” to be paid by SMEC when Mr Sirisena was a cabinet minister in return for signing off on a contract sought by SMEC. The company files suggest some in the firm’s overseas office backed the payment and later withdraw a large amount of cash. However, the company has said it found no evidence the donation was ever paid.
    The emails show a plan to siphon money from a World Bank-funded dam project in 2009 that was to involve Mr Sirisena awarding the $1.82 million contract to SMEC.
