The Joint Opposition (JO) today said the Indian national, who claimed of a plot to assassinate President Maithripala Sirisena, former President Mahinda Rajapaksa and his family members, was identified as an India’s Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) member bearing the RAW identity card number of RB317217/VJ.

JO member MP Wimal Weerawansa told a news conference that they had investigated on this issue and had found out that the Indian national who was arrested in Sri Lanka was named Rajendra Kumar and he was working for the RAW.


He said the suspect had come to Sri Lanka before the election held in 2015 and had continued working for the RAW during his stay.

The Indian national has tried to meet me in two instances but has failed since I was not available at my residence and office at that time. Right after his arrest, the Indian High Commission announced that the arrested person was psychologically imbalanced. It is the easiest way to tackle such incidents,” he said.

Even the RAW is active in Sri Lanka but President Sirisena is still maintaining a silent policy. It is evident that the RAW and the Tamil Diaspora are engaging in some conspiracies in Sri Lanka. The situation has turned quite dangerous,” he added.

    Modi’s plan is very clear. Although he helped Sirisena win, now he wants to get rid of Sirisena because he resists selling Colombo East Terminal Palali airstrip, Trincomalee port, etc. to India and his irrigation schemes, kidney hospital, etc. are all Chinese funded.

    In August Modi hosted TNA leaders, in September Mahinda and in October Ranil. Modi will now use these ppeople as pawns to push the Indian agenda.

    Sadly most of our Sinhala Buddhist majority is driven by love and hate of persons, and unable to think objectively. There are no permanant patriots in politics and no permanant traitors in politics either. Whoever is opposed to India is good for Sri Lanka for the time being. Sirisena’s late realization is good. It cannot save him. Sirisena cannot win the next election and he knows it.

    Mahinda is walking into another trap. Modi will only use Mahinda to remove Sirisena’s power. He will not reciprocate. After that Modi will install Ranil or any other choice of the LTTE Rump.

    These days headlines about plots and conspiracies cannot be just put a side or ignore. There must be some truth in it therefore the government should look in to it very carefully and investigate whether it is truth or a lie without blaming each other. They shouldn’t take it lightly at all. Indian parasites are capable of doing such things because of the past experiences we had with them. We cannot forget what those parasites did to us and the country in whole during the bloody war. When can we have a President who will act like Dutugemunu to show the world how strong us Sinhalese are. We have fought many wars and won in the past with Portuguese, Dutch, English Indian backed terrorists so on, so we have the courage and determination to keep our Sinhala flag up for another many many years to come only thing we need a strong leader to lead us not a spineless traitors like the current yamapalanaya yamaballo. True patriots to Motherlanka must join hands together and find a second Dutugemunu to lead our beautiful country for a better future.

    Do not be afraid to call spade a spade, come what may. Take swift action when there is clear evidence and do not waste time like in a high court, splitting hairs.

    Hope the Indian embassy in Sri Lanka, comment on these accusations ASAP. Some one inside me is asking from me, “from where did Wimal get this ID number? Is it from CID, who is questioning this Indian? Or is it from some one inside the RAW? Did Wimal pass this information to CID? If this Indian was an agent of the RAW, why did he visit Nalaka Kumara and Wimal Weerawansa in broad day light, in the middle of these crisis?” My head is spinning!

  5. Dilrook Says:

    The ID number may not be of the RAW agent in question. It may be the RAW agent expelled from Sri Lanka in December 2014 for forging the Sirisena alliance to topple Mahinda. However, there is sufficient reason to do a comprehensive investigation. The lives of the president and the former defence secretary cannot be taken lightly. We may have different political views but national interest must be protected. If Sirisena is bumped out, Ranil becomes president! If Gotabaya is also bumped out, Ranil may continue as president as winning the 2019 presidential election by foul means.

    Good question by Lionel.
    If you are a patriot, as Dilrook says, national interests comes first and Wimal should pass all the information to CID before making public statements.
    On the other hand I thought this is some gimmicks by Sirisena himself.

    India’s “Third Eye”, India legalized it as RAW in 1984.

    Third Eye is a vast institution with volunteers from India and Indian colonies.

    There is an administrative structure to look after all these workers.

    Best examples of volunteer Indian agents are Navi Pillayi, Yasmin Sooka, Athul Kesha,Gupta, all Indian legislative members in USA, UK, Canada etc etc.

    Jugdeo from Guyana?
