Sri Lanka needs Gotabhaya Rajapakse as President after Four and half years under Yahapalanaya, which was worse than the thirty years under Terrorism.

The thirty years of terrorism though it affected the whole country through uncertainty of life, threat of the division of the country, loss of peace and security , we the Sinhala Buddhists  were able to keep the unity of the communities suffering under terrorism , protect the  Sinhala Buddhist culture, maintain the pride of being  members of a Sri Lankan nation, and the willingness to fight against terrorism despite the risk to life, and  continue  our religious practices without fear and maintain a satisfactory standard of living., even if that was  at a  great loss of  life and property.

But today, after  four years of Yahapalanaya of Maithripala Sirisena and Ranil Wickramasinghe , what is left of that Sri Lanka which existed before they came into power on the 8th January,2015 ? 

Yahapalanaya  boasts that it brought back democracy , and allowed media freedom. But  they presume the people have forgotten  what the  situation was before 8th January2015. It  was different, with a most ruthless terrorism  which no one from JR Jayawardhana to Chandrika Kumaratunga  was able to stop. But, even then,  democracy was  not at stake, though  a certain amount of media control was necessary.

No one can remove the frightful situation that existed  then in Sri Lanka , when  criticising Mahinda Rajapakse and his Government. Things were unusual  and the actions that had to be taken were also  unusual. Mahinda Rajapakse’s  government had to move cautiously keeping in mind the existing uncertain situation with terrorism on the one onehand  with foreign interventionists  try to thwart military operations, and on the other hand to feed a nation, keep employment  at a safe level, and  carry out  development projects .

But the UNP Parliamentarians at TV political debates incessantly shout themselves hoarse on Rajapussella shooting incident, a white van culture, disappearance of journalists  without having  any substantial proofs  of involvement of Mahinda Rjapakse and his government.

The main accusation levelled at Mahinda Rajapakse and his government is that it was corrupt. But no one has been able to prove until today whether Mahinda Rajapakse and his family and his  close associates had committed any serious bank robberies or misappropriations.

But  there are only  rumours , false unfounded accusations, and garish scandalous utterances, all merely to slander, insult  to make Mahinda Rajapakse, his family and his associates unpopular, with the intention of keeping political power  in their own  hands. Even then although they  took over the Government from Mahainda Rajapakse , they could not take away  from Mahinda Rajapakse and his associates the  love, the affection, and the confidence the  real people of the country had placed on them.

On the 8th January,2015 the people voted for Maithripala Siriuesena, but the people never voted for Ranil Wickramasinghe to become the Prime Minister . Ranil wickramasinghe was only appointed the Prime Minister by the President Maithripala Sirisena.

There  is now a  rift between the President and the Prime Minister- a disagreement  of political views and political action. This means that there is a rift  also in the confidence the people placed  on President  Maithripala Sirisena as President,  viz a viz   Ranil Wickramasinghe  who was   selected by the President as the Prime Minister.

Unfortunately the Judiciary erred in their decision that the President had no right to dissolve the parliament before the end of four and a half years. Since then Ranil Wickramasinghe the Prime Minister has been  taking arbitrary decisions  on various matters without consulting the President or the Parliament, to the detriment of the country.

Today   Sri Lanka is facing a serious political situation with almost empty state coffers, administrative mismanagement by entering into agreements with foreign countries  resulting in loosing the sovereignty of the country, making Sri Lanka a play ground for the  USA and the West like what  Cuba was under Baptista before Fidel castro ousted him .

USA has an unholy government apparatus. They lack human qualities of  love, compassion and generosity. An American institution like the CIA, is a symbol of how unconcerned USA is with regard to  helping the poor countries to develop independently in their own way without USA  interfering into their internal  affairs , because of the American economic and military power. 

Both USA and Canada are what they are today because of the complete depletion of the population of the original inhabitants of the country the American Indians and the Canadian First Nation.  They talk of democracy having nailed the coffins of the real  owners of the America and Canada.

USA is still continuing their disastrous manipulative  non-democratic political game to keep the developing countries under their filthy iron feet.  They want to do  the same they  did using their CIA to Guatamala, Iran, Chili, and Congo then,  and to Iraq, Libya, etc. in the recent past. 

They used a man’s weakness for sex to deprive France of  perhaps a good President. They are trying to do that to Sri Lanka by using the sin of having taken USA citizenship to deprive a man loved by the people of Sri Lanka from: becoming a good President to his motherl and  his people in Sri Lanka.

To-do all that USA  along with the Western Governments has done to Sri Lanka  is to help  setting up a weak puppet yahapalanaya government  in Sri Lanka using their agent the member of the International Democratic Union  Ranil Wickramasinghe. The UNP Parliamentarians and members of the  UNP follow Ranil Wickramasinghe  without questioning his actions or  intentions.

Yahapalanaya Government from the day it was set up in Jnauary,2015 traced a path to destroy  Sri Lanka nurtured  in its Sinhala Buddhist Culture, by giving an important place for  a process of reconciliation with the Tamils. They commenced by destroying the identity of Sri Lanka by allowing the National Anthem to be sung in Sinhala and Tamil,  a thing that never happened in any other Country in the world  before.  All nations have one National Anthem sung in one language- the language of the majority.

After that the Yahapalanaya set the trail for leading the country towards bankruptcy by staging a Bond Scam robbery  twice and emptied the Government Coffers and went on a spree of debt raising putting the blame on the  necessity to re-pay loans taken by the  previous government of  President Mahinda Rajapakse for the develop of the country.

Yahapalanaya also began by  stopping   development projects started by Mahinda Rajapaksa government. it stopped  the development work of the Colombo City funded by China  causing unemployment to thousands of workers. Groping in political darkness Ranil Wickramasinghe who had diminished the powers of the President Sirisena under 19A was acting on his own signing agreements with Singapore, India, China and USA without consulting the President or the parliament.

USA had helped Ranil to drive nails into the coffin of real democracy, and hoist a name plate democracy of which he trumpets to a fooled nation of a renewed  democracy, freedom of the press and the end of a white van culture.  Ranil Wickramasinghe even took over the  Judiciary on to his side with USA twisting his arms trying to set up  its own legal system in Sri Lanka along with a base camp for the American Armed Forces. Besides that the Yahapalanaya has imported Islamic terrorism, and made Sri Lanka a dumping ground of British Garbage.

The Presidential election  is due to be held in Sri Lanka and if by some bad luck or through the sins the people have committed, and for their bad kamma Ranil Wickramasinghe or a some one  from the political front lead by him would come to power, that would be the end of Sinhala Buddhist Sri Lanka with over 2000 years of history.

The people of Sri Lanka should wake up to the looming danger and avoid voting for  any Presidential Candidate of the UNP or a United Front lead by the UNP, Ranil Wickramasinghe or the J.V.P.  

If Sri Lanka is to be saved from dangers it is facing today a solution is with the former President  Mahinda Rajapakse who had the vision and the ability to find ways to win the war with  the  ruthless terrorists, and  parallel to it develop the country from rigors of a thirty year terrorism and the ashes of poverty. 

The ability of setting the Sri Lanka back on its feet to walk towards a targeted development process, is in the camp of the Sri Lanka Podu Janaperamuna led by Mahinda Rajapakse and his patriotic supporters.  

One has to tread the ground carefully in making plans to rescue Sri Lanka dragging it out of the political, economic and social mire into which it has been pushed by Yahapalanaya goons blinded by power,  clean, and nurse  the Country before setting it back on its staggering feet weakened after four and a half years of destructive Yahapalanaya.

Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna would probably  propose the former Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapakse as their Presidential Candidate . He has shown his ability to stand against foreign powers and face the  local political and racial elements in the interest of the country and produce strong surprisingly fresh development projects to develop   towns and the country, using the Armed Forces in useful development projects. 

There may be those who criticise him for personal reasons but if one is selflessly looking at the country as a whole, the ideal candidate for the Presidential election, and subsequently  to lead the Country as its President would certainly be Gotabhaya Rajapakse, even if there are complaints that he is a military man rather than a politician to be the President of Sri Lanka, Once in power he is quite capable of adjusting himself  to political needs as he proved his ability to successfully coordinate  different Armed Forces of the ground, air and sea, to eliminate terrorism from Sri Lanka, and later to start development projects  bringing  peace and security to the country.

    I agree (although I have some serious reservations about the adverse effects on the nation if Gotabaya becomes the president).

    This nonsense cannot continue. UNP with elements sympathetic to terrorists (LTTE and ISIS/NTJ) is ruining the nation in every way possible.

    (The fact that Gotabaya wins the presidential election anyway if he contests is a different matter. My opinion does not matter at all. People have already decided to make Gotabaya the president as they decided in 2012 to replace Mahinda at the next presidential election).

  2. Ananda-USA Says:


    Let Gothabhaya Rajapaksa as President, and Mahinda Rajapaksa as Prime Minister, save our Motherland!

  3. Charles Says:

    Dilrook what are the adverse effects you see on the nation if Gotabhaya were to be elected ? I saw some where your batting for Nagananda. That would certainly be be a bad choice any way. for the nation.

  4. Dilrook Says:

    Sri Lanka will face economic restrictions if GR becomes president (over false allegations by the west) as all our biggest export destinations and other forex earning destinations are western and pro-western. The point is not who is right and who is wrong in this. People and the nation will face more economic hardships.

    I support Nagananada’s bold policies of eliminating provincial councils and racist tribal laws. No other candidate has the courage even to promise them.

    However, getting rid of this UNP regime and Sirisena is the priority of the people and GR is the best to do so.
    In 2015 people badly wanted to get rid of Rajapaksas and were willing to vote for any idiot.
    Now the pendulum is moving in the opposite direction.

  5. Ananda-USA Says:

    TODAY, Dr. Jayampath Wickramaratne, the proud architect of the 19th Amendment, declared in Parliament that the 19th Amendment is VERY BAD, FAR WORSE than they EVER IMAGINED!

    We are GLAD that even at this LATE STAGE of DESTRUCTION of Sri Lanka under the 19th Amendment that fueled the Yamapalanaya, he is WILLING TO FINALLY ACKNOWLEDGE what has OBVIOUS TO MOST PATRIOTS from the very inception of the 19th Amendment.

    What we had been PREACHING about the DANGERS of SPLITTING THE EXECUTIVE in TWO, this ARCHITECT of the 19th Amendment SEES ONLY NOW!

    But, he uses the DEBACLE WROUGHT by the 19th Amendment to his ADVANTAGE to ADVOCATE the ELIMINATION of the Presidency!

    INSTEAD, we PATRIOTIC Sri Lankans want the Prime Minister’s Position to be Eliminated, and the EXECUTIVE PRESIDENCY RESTORED to its original Strength, and STRENGTHENED EVEN FURTHER to give Sri Lanka IRON-CLAD STABILITY and PROTECTION.

    BTW, Asath Salley today DEFENDED the Sharia Law, and said they .. the ALL POWERFUL MUslims of Sri Lanka … will not ALLOW the ERADICATION of Sharia Law from Sri Lanka!

    Asath Salley is feeling his OATS and is feeling ALL POWERFUL right now, but We will see about that, soon!

    We will make him EAT HIS OWN WORDS from behind the BARS of the WELIKADA Prison!

  6. Randeniyage Says:

    If 19th amendment is very very bad, all who voted for it, including Sirisena who fought hard to get the votes should resign immediately. Basically 226- 1( SW) must resign.

  7. Randeniyage Says:

    Sirisena appointed Asath Salley to “WP Governor” and Hizbullah to “EP Governor” very recently. No one , including all BIG NAMES opposed. Until the bombs both were very good to both government and opposition.

    We don’t need ANY “Governor” if Sir Lanka is a single country. Remove 13A and all so called
    governors ? Why not fight for it if you love the country. You only love BIG NAMES , to hell with the country, because you are residents of USA, UK and the West. You use all your strength to destroy lives of Sri Lankans.

  8. Ananda-USA Says:


    I agree with you that the 13A must be repealed and the Provincial Councils ABOLISHED, “Governers INCLUDED. I and many others writing here have CONSISTENTLY CAMPAIGNED for that.

    Therefore, I hope you were not referring to many of us “expatriates”, including me, writing here, when you said “You only love BIG NAMES, to hell with the country, because you are residents of USA, UK and the West. You use all your strength to destroy lives of Sri Lankans”, because that is the OPPOSITE OF THE TRUTH.

    If you only knew all that we do to uplift and protect Sri Lanka, beginning before the EELAM War began, using the money we have earned abroad! You CLEARLY DON’T KNOW or you would not uttered such ignorant words! Forgive this fool Lord, for he knows not what he says!

    BTW, I am a citizen of Sri Lanka too, and I spend, more of my time in Sri Lanka than in the USA, working for the benefit of my Motherland!
