First of all we salute the Sri Lanka’s Best Electoral Organiser and Forecaster, none other than former Minister Mr Basil Rajapakse. Basil is an Effective Manager.  Basil is a Methodical Planner.  Basil’s public speaking skills with an eloquent vocabulary is unique.

After Prez. Mahinda Rajapakse lost the Presidency, the rumour was that Basil’s decision making process was not palatable to politically naive MPs and Ministers, including Wimal.  Basil at that time said:

  1. If Prez Mahinda lost the Office because of me, then I will take the blame;
  2. If  Prez Mahinda lost the Office because of me, then I will make sure I BRING HIM BACK TO POWER.

Then,  last October he said in Hiru SALAKUNA, that Podujana Peramuna will win at least 200 members.   This was well before declaring the nominations for the election.

Then,  6 February, just 4 days  prior to the Election, Mr Basil Rajapakse said, the SLPP will win as close as 250 members.

Basil Rajapakse  is like Prof Peter Drucker.  Prof. Drucker never wrote big books.  His books were all small, but the contents were absorbing.  The Practice of Management”, Managing for Results”, An Effective Executive” are now standard collection in the private library of any professional manager.    Basil Rajapake is innovative, a leader of a think tank. Mr Gotabaya Rajapakse is visionary and get the job done.  Mr Mahinda Rajapakse is a Leader, he is clever to use Basil, Gota, Dinesh, Vasu, Great Wimal Weerawansa, Gammanpila,  a political chemistry much needed at the moment.

This government is like stale food.  President Maithreepala has only one option.   He must appoint Mr Mahinda Rajapakse to the highest office of the land.  SLPP during elections period, quite clearly advocated that once the LG election was won, we will change the government sooner than later. The general public had placed faith in SLPP and expect delivery of results. SLPP must go hard to capture power now, otherwise foreign powers will use their power to prevent Prez Mahinda Rajapakse capturing power.


Still 18 months away for major Election.   The people are suffering as a result of economic disaster.  The international reputation of Sri Lanka is at the lowest ebb.

Is Ranil a LEADER?  Once again, the Prof. Drucker said The only definition of a leader is someone who has followers.”   Ranil’s main aim was to destroy  Buddhism, Sinhala Nationalism.  His mind set is European. He does not care Buddhism, Sinhalese, Tamils or Muslims.  He is married to upper echelons of the society, he likes God, he likes Cricket, he likes LGBT, he like to make false promises, he is an INTELLIGENT CROOK,  he is capable of deceiving people because he thinks that people will listen and believe him.  There are millions of UNPers still in Sri Lanka to vote for him. That is why he is still in power, with FOREIGN INTERVENTION.

Prez Maithreepala must realise that he and his party were rejected by the people and he has no where to go.  The UNP did farely well and the masses are more angry with MS than RW, because PRESIDENT MAITHREEPALA SIRISENA IS NOT PRESIDENTIAL MATERIAL.  THAT IS A FACT.      Prez. MS must bring back  the greatest leader of our country         Prez Mahinda Rajapakse to:

  1. Scrap the proposed new constitution and dispatch Mr Jayampathi Wickremaratne into oblivion;
  2. Scrap 13 and 19 amendments to the constitution;
  3. Recover Bond Scam funds and pump those funds to upgrade hospitals, including providing wheel chairs to elderly, compulsory ambulance service with a tax levy, provide medicine at affordable prices, provide free treatment for macular degeneration, glucomina;
  4. Extend working hours to 40 hrs per week, reduce overtime;

If Prez Maithree soft-peddle, both Ranil and Maithree will be dispatched to the bottom of the harbor.

In regard to Bond Scam, there is a strong argument for criminal breach of trust by Mr Ranil Wickremasinghe. Usually Ranil does not get involved in issues like these.  But as UNP  was out of power for many years, accumulated losses were straggering, he  might have been relucatanly compelled to explore alternative paths.

Even if Ranil is found guilty for Bond Scam, there is no need to put him in Jail  ( IN JUMPERS.)   This is my personal opinion.  It was an error of judgement on his part to become a politician.

    I propose re-establishing miltary camps in the North and east. Re settle Sinhala who were forcefully displaced by terrorists.
    Band TNA and arrest Wigneswaran and any Tamil politician speaking against the Sinhala and Buddhism.

    Stop UN from interfering into internal affairs of the Country. Demand all Foreign Embassies to mind their buiness and not to interefer with the internal Affirs of Sri Lanka.

    Sri Lanka’s Chief Prelates call on leaders to continue unity government and fulfill promises made to people
    Sat, Feb 17, 2018, 09:11 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

    Feb 17, Colombo: Sri Lanka’s influential Mahanayake Theras (Chief Prelates) of the Malwathu and Asgiri Chapters have urged President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe to promptly resolve the political crisis emerged after the local government elections without allowing the nation to be destabilized.

    The two Chief Prelates have pointed out that the government should work unitedly to take the country forward to fulfill the promises they made.

    The Mahanayake of Malwathu Chapter Most Venerable Thibbotuwawe Sri Sumangala Thera says that the Government has a responsibility to rule the country without creating confusions.

    In a letter to the President and the Prime Minister, the Chief Prelate said if the confusion resulted after the Local Government elections continued further, collapse of state administration and economic downturn are inevitable and all the parties should work unitedly to avoid such an outcome and to fulfill the promises they made to the people at the last elections.

    The Chief Prelate noted that with the outcome of the election results, the confusing, unstable, and uncertain situation emerging in the country is an obstruction to the people’s progress and well-being, as well as to unity, peace and harmony.

    The Mahanayake Thera also said that it is important to pay special attention to this situation and now it is necessary to act diligently to fulfill the promises given to the public in 2015 and at the general election. It is important to resolve the livelihood problems of the working class and the middle-class people, he emphasized.

    The Chief Prelate said the main emphasis should be on making national, religious, cultural and economic progress, as well as building peace and unity.

    Registrar of Asgiri Chapter Venerable Dr. Medagama Dhammananda Thera in a statement said that they hoped for the stability, betterment of people and security of the country.

    He requested all political party leaders and groups to refrain from acting in a manner that is detrimental to the country’s stability, the economy and the country’s security.

    The Venerable Thera noted that even though more than a week has elapsed since the conclusion of the Local Authority Election there has been no change in the current political environment. He hoped that the politicians will not abuse the mandate of the people by crossovers.

    He said that President Maithripala Sirisena, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and former President Mahinda Rajapaksa should be responsible in handling the current situation of the country and they have the responsibility to maintain stability in the country.

    Venerable Dammanada Thera requested the political leaders to ensure the country’s security and work towards ensuring stability.

    The SPIN by ECONOMYNEXT in the article below that SLFP/UPFA’s move to form a Govt has run into Constitutional Barriers is JUST THAT: A SPIN!

    As I had stated above, the 19A DOES ALLOW the whole Cabinet to be DIS<MISSED together with its first member the PRIME MINISTER.

    There is also another report the PM has rallied his dissenting troops. That IS toubling, because a SLFP/UPFA Govt will need as many as 11 defecting UNP MPs.

    EVEN MORE TROUB:LING, is a PERPLEXING TURNAROUND by the Mahanayake's of the Malwatta and Asgiriya Chapters at this CRITICAL time in their REPORTED but unverified release advocating the continuation of the Unity Govt! See my post of the article below.

    COME ON Hamuduruweni ….. WHERE is YOUR SPINE? STICK to your GUNS that you had FIRED EARLIER in DEFENCE of our Motherland!

    Sri Lanka President-backed putsch fails as PM rallies dissidents
    Sat, Feb 17, 2018, 09:27 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

    Feb 17 (ECONOMYNEXT) A last ditch attempt by President Maithripala Sirisena to oust Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has failed due to a constitutional hurdle and more significantly the lack of parliamentary support, sources close to both sides said.

    President Sirisena had agreed to continue working with Wickremesinghe, but had a sudden change of heart on Thursday after meeting with his United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) and Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) seniors.

    The two general secretaries of the parties, ministers Mahinda Amaraweera and Susil Premajayantha told reporters that neither of them could work under Wickremesinghe and insisted that they would not be in a cabinet with him.

    The duo raised Sirisena’s hopes of forming a SLFP/UPFA government with Minister Nimal Siripala de Silva as Prime Minister. Sirisena’s

    dream of being the leader of an unadulterated UPFA/SLFP cabinet was reinforced by his nemesis Mahinda Rajapaksa pledging conditional support.

    The charismatic former president controls at least 56 members of parliament out of the 96 elected under the UPFA ticket, but even together they do not have an absolute majority of 113 seats required to constitutionally topple Wickremesinghe.

    A senior official close to Sirisena said the president had been misguided by a senior lawyer who had advised him that he had the power to sack Wickremesinghe the same way he unceremoniously dismissed D. M. Jayaratne in January 2015.

    However, he was told that the President’s power to dismiss the Prime Minister was taken away by the 19th amendment to the constitution. Some have argued that the president could sack the entire cabinet and thus the PM too would lose his job, but there is no provision to under Articles 48 (as specified in the 19th amendment) to remove the cabinet in toto.

    Aides have argued that Sirisena could have pressed ahead ignoring constitutional provisions if he had an absolute majority as in the case of Mahinda Rajapaksa who used his executive power and the huge parliamentary majority to impeach chief justice Shirani Bandarayanake in 2013 using highly questionable means. In less than three weeks into office, Sirisena’s administration in January 2015 overturned the impeachment of Bandaranayake using equally controversial means, but thanks to a steamroll majority in the House.

    Realising both the legal impediments and the lack of a parliamentary majority, the once gung-ho UPFA ministers went silent over the weekend with their efforts at a constitutional putsch backfiring and raising questions about their tenure in the National Unity government.

    UPFA general secretary and minister Amaraweera had told the president in writing that no SLFP/UPFA member, himself included, could be in a cabinet with Wickremesinghe, a sentiment articulated over national television by Premajayantha.

    While President Sirisena cancelled his meeting with senior editors on Friday, Wickremesinghe hosted senior journalists to tea at Temple Trees after a no-holds-barred press conference where he categorically declared that he will remain but with changes in his party and the cabinet.

    In sharp contrast to the president’s camp, Wickremesinghe was careful not to criticize the president or his SLFP ministers. When asked how he could have Messers Premajayantha and Amaraweera in a future cabinet, Wickremesinghe said: “It is coalition politics. We have to get used to it. It was a little difficult for everyone at the beginning, but not anymore.”

    He said the president had told him that he was spending the weekend at his home constituency of Polonnaruwa and they would discuss the composition of the new cabinet in the coming week. He expected the process of finalizing a new cabinet of ministers to take over a week.

    Parliament meets on Tuesday for the first time after the February 10 local government elections and should the UPFA and the SLFP have sufficient numbers to oust Wickremesinghe they have no impediment to submiting a no-trust resolution against the premier.

    Despite UPFA attempts to push Nimal Siripala de Silva as a successor to Wickremesinghe, the somnolent transport minister made no public comments about accepting high office. Instead, he was attending temple ceremonies and offering poojas for good luck, a source close to him said.

    Dissent within

    Shortly after the local government election results showed that Wickremesinghe’s UNP had suffered a drubbing, the premier was under pressure from within the party to step down.

    However, the final results were not as bad as initially feared and Wickremesinghe was slowly able to rally support and keep disgruntled elements under check. A party senior said he also earned sympathy from the rank and file after a private media channel went out on a limb to personally attack him.

    “The media campaign against Ranil was an overkill and many people who saw the live coverage ended up feeling that he was unfairly targeted and began to rally behind him,” the source said.

    Wickremesinghe himself told reporters on Friday that he accepted responsibility for the electoral humiliation and was carrying out a restructuring of the party. He said the leadership was in “transition without disruption” and wanted younger members to take a leading role.

    He also admitted that the fallout from the bond scandal and his government’s failure to prosecute high profile members of the previous regime accused of corruption were key factors.

    He said he had taken on board the powerful warning from the electorate and was on a course correction to swiftly deliver on electoral promises made three years ago to bring to justice those responsible for killings and corruption.

  4. SenaD Says:

    “Re settle Sinhala who were forcefully displaced by terrorists.”

    This is one issue none of the Sinhala leaders is championing.

    The above is only second to the dispossession and displacement of the up country peasantry implemented by the British and still not addressed by any of the administrations since getting the so called ‘independence’.

  5. Charles Says:

    SenaD This is I think mainly because of the risk to the lives of the Sinhala people in their villages to which they had returned This happened in some villages where Sivajilingam and crowds came checking the identity cards and Deed of the people threatening themto leave the villages. That is why there should be more Army Camps in the North and East.

  6. Fran Diaz Says:

    There are Armed Forces personnel who have no housing anywhere.
    Such people ought to be given housing in the N&E, as well as re-setttling ALL the displaced people from those areas.
    Is fairplay to live anywhere in Lanka only applicable to Tamil folk ?
    If so, why ?

  7. Lorenzo Says:

    I proposed SINGHALA COLONIZATION of the north even during the war. But NO ONE listened to me. Ananda-USA proposed ETHNIC INTEGRATION. I said that will NEVER happen. Guess who’s right!!

    Only SF said we should settle and resettle army and Singhala people in the north. All others are DUMB about it.

    Unless SINGHALA COLONIZATION is done in the north, SL is already DIVIDED in reality.

    IF DS SENANAYAKE did NOT DO SINGHALA COLONIZATION the east would have ended up like Chennai or Karachchi.

    MR totally neglected Singhala villages in the north and east.

  8. Ananda-USA Says:

    Ado Lorenzo, the undercover LTTE agitator:

    What does it matter if instead of SINHALA COLONIZATION the same is achieved through the MORE DEFENSIBLE banner of ETHNIC INTEGRATION??

    Remember, We WIPED OUT Tamil Separatist TERRORISTS and REUNIFIED the Nation under the banner of a HUMANITARIAN OPERATION!

    Call it what you want, but the PRINCIPLE and the RESULT is the SAME!

    After CREATING enemies for MR by yelling “Sinhala Colonization” as a FAKE SUPER-PATRIOT, YOU JUMPED over the FENCE to join MS to TOPPLE MR!


    BTW, How is your PhD in POOSARI STUDIES coming? Any progress??

  9. Christie Says:

    It is a bit naïve to compare LG elections to presidential elections.

    If we look at the voting pattern we Sinhalese are still divided.

    So the Indian Colonial Parasite block vote will decide the outcome of a Presidential election.

    We Sinhalese have to be united more than what we are at the LG polls.
