“I Hope To Be Executive Prime Minister” – Ranil

  • After The Next General Election
  • In An Executive Cabinet

By Frederica Jansz

Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe said he hopes to function as Executive Prime Minister, after the next general election is held.  Answering questions as to what exactly his role would be or how he stood to gain in the event of General Sarath Fonseka winning the January 26 presidential election, Wickremesinghe responded saying, “I have functioned before as Executive Prime Minister in an Executive Cabinet and I hope to do so again.”

This, he said, would of course be subject to the General winning the forthcoming presidential election.

Wickremesinghe added there were three main issues on which he stood to gain if the General were to be elected as the next president of Sri Lanka.  “The first would be to establish democracy. Second, to install a parliamentary system of government, which will have a majority of UNP MPs. Third, I hope to function as Executive Prime Minister.”

Quizzed on why the United National Party for the first time in its entire history has fielded a presidential candidate outside the party, Wickremesinghe responded, “We have not fielded someone outside the UNP. We are merely supporting General Sarath Fonseka, in order to abolish the Executive Presidency, as the JVP are doing, despite a whole lot of ideological differences with the UNP.  We are all committed to the same cause.  To restore democracy in this country.”

Wickremesinghe asserted that he is confident General Fonseka will garner considerable votes from the Tamil and Muslim minority parties too.  “We have agreed on a ten point plan for the future of Sri Lanka – a country with a vision which would include the resettlement of IDPs, dealing with all those homeless since 1983 and all those under detention without charge.”

Asked if the General would not require the office of Executive President to eradicate corruption – which has been Fonseka’s battle cry since he began running for president – Wickremesinghe said, “We have agreed even after the Executive Presidency is abolished the General should head a council that will monitor the anti corruption drive.”  This Council, Wickremesinghe asserted, should be non partisan and representative of all members in society including the opposition and civil society.

Responding specifically to the question on what role exactly the General would play if the Presidency is abolished Wickremesinghe said, “He will head this council.”

    When SF was questioned in America about his speech about shooting LTTE cadres carrying White flags, he wriggled out by blaming the Defence Secretary.

    • Randeniya

      It is other way around mate. When Gota visited the US along with team to visit UN, he was questioned for two hours and in which he put all the blame on SF and kept quite. Then when SF visited US, they wanted to clarifiy this, he became furious to know the allgation and the rest is history.

      • billy

        ya sure u, im sure a little birdy must have told u that right…

        • Devananda

          Those days LTTE tried to kill SF. But they failed.
          Now the goverment is trying as well as EPDP
          I think SF is the only person targeted by both enemies

      • Mangala

        Really ? how come UN doesn’t understand that if SF has done any violation Gota is also responsible as country’s defence secretary where SF was reporting to GOTA. In that case they should punish both gota and SF then :-)

        Also there seems to some weakness in UN process as if Defence seretary of a country can get escaped by putting all the blame on one of his junior officers. They should re think on their process. isn’t it ?

      Hey guys, do not make cock and bull stories

      • Punnaku Bandara

        Honestly, I cannot testify to the “COCK” but certainly can testify that information from Randeniya and others that this is no “BULL”. The US had uncorroborated information but wanted to clarify form both leaders of any truth. When Gota visited for UN on official diplomatic passport, he put the blame on our MILITARY leadership and lied betraying the oath as a US citizen. However, the US authorities had credible information that he was lying but could not act as he had diplomatic immunity. But, when SF arrived in the US, they wanted to clarify this information and to who in the military this information was given to because SF was on an official visit in China during the last days of the operation. Be that as it may, SF might have know this information and allude to this day that he himself was not the one who gave that order but the order came from the top. This erroneous and fabricated information from Gota (may as well be from SF himself) was what triggered the US to question SF. So, The question now before the US is as to who exactly gave the final verdict to eliminate Tiger leaders when the LTTE had clearly surrendered. Also, several other atrocities perpetrated by our forces (including the elimination of LTTE female cadres and use of heavy military hardware at cessation) are all factors before the US inquiry. I’m no member of the diaspora and conclude that Velu and his boys who only know terror deserved this end. But,is this what we have to offer as a conventional fighting force and protectors of justice and our “democracy”? I will let the reader decide!

      • DIXON

        Not quite! See what the MR regime has to offer the world from Sri Lanka with WAR. Don’t forget that the DN is the mouth piece of the STATE. The State media under what ever government should be dis assembled or privatized or shut down. But government AR*E lickers don’t understand this injustice, but the outside world does. So grow up and don’t blame SF for speaking the TRUTH!

      GOTHABAYA RAJAPAKSE IS A COWARD TO GIVE ORDERS TO SHOOT WHITE FLAG CARRYING AND SURRENDERING LTTE LEADERS.

      GOTH MIGHT HAVE ALSO GIVEN THE ORDERS TO THE GALLE FACE POLICE TO BEAT AND KILL THE MENTALLY RATARDED TAMIL PERSON AT THE GALLE FACE BEACH.

      THE SINHALESE ,MUSLIMS AND TAMILS SHOULD GET TOGETHER TO BRING THIS MAD MAN BEFORE THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMMINAL COURT.

      • BANDARA - PASYALA

        MOHAMED! DO NOT WORRY ON THE 26 JANUARY GOTHA AND HIS HENCHMEN WILL BE BROUGHT BEFORE THE CRIMMINAL COURT OF JUSTICE FOR THE KILLINGS OF 15 MEDIA PERSONNEL DURING THE MR’S RULE.

          Please Mr RW is right, its not a big deal, after the next general elections what if he wanted to be PM?

          Anyways at the end it says:

          Hello Moda “donkingkann”

          Then why did you blamed Fedrica (the writer of this article) in a previous comment saying that she is in MR? You hadn’t read the article well and now say “At least learn to read the first sentence”. Ha ha ha….you are a good UNPer…….you have all the credentials to be so.

      • thajudeen shihar

        mr Donkey after loosing the election you will say ponna seka also under government payroll

      • HUD

        Man, When Fedrica writes something said by Ranil which is not good for SF, you say she is on MR’s pay roll. Then what about Ranil who said it ? He never refused it , and are you suggesting that he is in MR’s payroll too? What have happened to your brain. Even a donkey will understand these kinds of things.

  7. ForLanka

    It is funny how some react to news articles. If it is anything good about MR or the economy of the country, it’s cooked up. If it is damaging to SF, then Fedrica, you are on MR’s contract. But then, it is exactly them who spread rumours of corupption without giving any proof to mislead the public. Let us only hope this mongers wouldn’t fool too many people.

    Dear Sir,

    H. Warnakulasuriya

    Three Reasons to Support SF

    There is a huge debate going on in the society as to why people support should General Sarath Fonseka. I wish to point out three reasons for anyone to support him.

    1. Change in the political system. As we witnessed that after the independence we had many governments. Yet, under the cover of the executive presidency, present government is making a huge damage to the future of Sri Lanka. On the one hand corruption, nepotism, political violence, embezzlement of government funds, and government spending are high more than ever. On the other hand, in the eyes of the international community, we have become a nation who has no regards for human rights and a nation that has been dealing with most undesirable and undemocratic nations in the world. As a result, gradually the international community has rejected us. For example, EU has rejected to grant us GSP+ concessions. We lost our bid to host the Commonwealth leaders meeting. We need to overcome this situation. We are dealing with most unpopular nations in the world. Our leaders have not understood the fact that these regimes would collapse at any moment.

    2. Change in the society. Today our society is divided socially, politically, and religiously more than ever. According to the President Rajapakse there are only two kinds of people in this country viz. patriots and non patriots. There could not be any one in the middle. This categorization has created bewilderment among the people. This has hindered rational thinking. People have tempted to follow the path of patriots blindly. This has created suspicion among Tamils and Muslims about the motives of Sinhalese. We have been made to think as war mongers. This is not a positive development. This would obviously create a lot of rifts in the society. There are signs of Sri Lanka leading towards an authoritarian society.

    3. Change of faces. Since independence, the lawyers have been ruling the country except on very few occasions. If we look at the profession of many key figures in any governments during the post independence Sri Lanka, we find a number of lawyers. For example, the first finance Minister of Sri Lanka was JR Jayawardena, who was a lawyer. S.W.R.D Bandaranaike, was a lawyer. Present President is a lawyer. Ranil is a lawyer too. Lawyers are not suitable to rule a country. We need intellectuals who have diverse knowledge on sciences, politics, Economics, new technology, and management. In this context, we need new faces in the political milieu. More importantly, what we lack in the present society is discipline. We need to restore discipline in the society. It does not mean a military rule. Discipline is the key to every positive change and development in the society. I personally, believe that General Fonseka would be able to restore discipline in the society.

    Accordingly, I believe that if anyone is serious about future of Sri Lanka. They should seek for a change.

        COPE report Rs 33,000 million fraud but no culprits ( because all politicians and henchman are the guilty ones!)
        - Mihin air …. lost 6 billion and then given another 3 billion. When the world economy was suffering and the established airlines were collapsing the ‘brilliant’ SL politicians ego is what matters!

        - Losses identified Air Lanka 9.98 billion, Electricity board 39 billion, Ports Authority 3.5 billion, Petroleum Coop- 7.1 billion, SLTB 4.5 billion, Road development authority 9.9 billion
        - Rs 100 million lost to the SLTB for using busses in the one of the election campaigns.
        - 40 ministers with Colombo residencies claim Rs 100, 000 housing allowance and Rs 35,000 electricity/ water allowance to many other perks. Oops, don’t they say that they are really serving the poor!
        - Foreign minister spends Rs 100 million on foreign trips
        - Rs 90 million paid to Mr Thondaman to move to premises belonging to workers congress
        - Rs 100 million lost due to fraud at foreign employment ministry
        - Rs 150 million spent on 22 presidential advisors
        - 20 ministers having overspent asks for Rs 2.52 billion ( part of over spent is to buy luxury vehicles)
        - Govt. unable to account for Rs 1000 million from Maga-neguma project
        - SLT telecom loses Rs 324 million in a tender racket
        - Airlanka catering loses Rs 9000 million last yr from a profit of Rs 4000 million the previous year
        - More than 100 ministers ( India with 1 billion has only 22 ) and add the cost of many vehicles, offices, houses, security, assistants ( family members) wasting billions. On top of these the suck out every penny from the ministries!
        - Palaces for presidents family. Who cares for the 20 million citizens?

        You have one chance to eradicate this mega corruption and do not miss it!

          I wonder who is really back behind donkingkann.. Could be ranil him self doing some damage control…..Or is it Mongala him self
          Corruptions you mentioned never been proven… Ranil and Mongola we know the drill of loosers.. We saw same drill against Obama’s champagne… saying he’s a muslim…and the drill against Mahinda calling him a thief… This is a low level campagne.. Voters are more matured now and they know the lie drill…

          This things i know personally…

          - Sarath Fonseka receive a land from the government worth Rs.100million from Srilankan Government
          - Sarath Fonseka receive a vehicle worth Rs.44million for just Rs.2million from Srilanka Government
          -Sarath Fonseka’s two children studying in USA for the date fully payed by the Srilankan Government..(Janadhipathi Aramudala )

          These seems to be a useless payment for a traitor like Fonseka…

    • Jagath Senadeera

      Hi HW,

      I ask these questions if you could answer;
      1. Do you think SF will change political system (if he wins). Does he ever get 2/3 Majority in the parliment to do so ever?
      2. How can FR change the social devide (for example rich vs poor, racial divide (he himself is racial), and urban vs country(village))?
      3. What make you think an army commander is more suitable to run a country compared to experienced politicians?

      • Roshan

        For your first quetion.
        1.We can have a hope cos he said that if he failed to do so not sit in the president seat anymore. He will defenetly get 2/3 majority cos ,even now all the ministers agreed to support for change of political system(mahinda also can do now cos he has 2/3 majority now in parliment)
        2. i can not understand that you meaning by FR is MR or what.>? any how for you question i can give an answer you can not change the social devide 100% instantly.Even with the eveloped country like america.uk, australia there also have racial issues f an ex:when barak obama came to power .and cricket teams played in UK and australia they raise racial issues etc.
        3.From the begining all the stuffs messed cos with experieced politicians from bandaranyaka to present mahinda.To make this country to go ahead with demcratically +deciplinally should a person to undertake with no corruption,vast thinking about the people,and well experianced of a deciplinary army cheif.

    • Tishan

      Mr. Warnakulasuriya,
      Yes most of people in SL belive that the country need change. Big one in most of the aspects. Problem is theres no one in the field with the capability to do that change.
      We respect SF for what he did, so to MR. But with out MR, SF would have been nothing. Might hv ended same way Gen. Kobbakaduwa.
      MR is currupt, but give choice still he is the one to lead the country. Voting SF is like giving the country to Ranil in a plate.

      • Jane

        RW has now clearly said that he’s looking at the Ex. Prome Minister position – so if you vote for SF you are voting to get RW elected

      • kumara

        Yes country need change but not change talking RW we need our own identical change in economy, social structure and others. I cannot be done RW or UNP. We need correct Vision to forward country. It’s only having to MR

        Just think a minute

        We can kill any good leaders at mint. But we can make leaders at minute so all Sri Lankan responsibility to protect MR rather than the keep hope on to be leaders.

    • janatha

      yeh..what we as sri lankans were not able to taste is military government..whatever nice stories you tell everything depend on SF’s mentality..once he get the power into his hand..you guys expect him to do what you want…look at what he is doing to rajapaksa’s who paved the way for his popularity..wont he give the same treatment for poor RW and somawansa once he become the president..

    • kumara

      Dear H Warnakulasuriya and all

      WHY WE SHOULD NOT VOTE SARTH FONSEKA AT PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION 2010?

      01 Can UNP, JVP , Mangala, Manoganshan, Hakim build stable government?

      No they can get agree with each other about the political agendas. Therefore in 2010 April they can build the STABLE GOVERNMENT due to deference’s in these parties any time government can fall.
      So why we contribute to this situation and make our nation politically unstable. We need at lest next 10 years with stable political background to developed this country. If we vote to MR he would able to developed National government eve having RW support builds the nation.

      02. How can Ranial and SF can change The Society? Specially Ranil having Western Society Believes. Do hop you it will brings our nation to grate social development, what’s happen our traditions, values and culture. Can’t image even. Dear we need leader who believes our tradition, values and culture then only the we can change our society in to positive manure and then only it will be compatible with our thanking.

      03. Can Change Everything by changing Politician face profession?
      We need leader how think differently rather than the think in box, as example Former All presidents say we can won the wore we have to go to discussion, but MR believed both and he succeed in war . He thinks we should have our own identity on all aspect of country development. Culture. Tradition, agriculture, potential industries, changing attitudes, development of diplomatic relations with other nations while box in to Europe community.

    Even if Warnakulasuriya’s reasons are correct, Sarath Fonseka is not the answer as he has already proved unpatriotic by revealing command secrets, he is not firm in his commitments as he has wavered and prone to tell people what they want to hear and finally bogus as he claims to have won the war singlehanded. All his adult life he has known only the military so what makes you so sure that he will not drag Sri Lanka into a military state should (perish the thought) he become Executive President.

    • Perhaps,
      SF don’t no politics! But he will learn it (?)

      • Tishan

        After become president? Somebody must be jocking! Learning should start from pre-school not from uni.

      • Jane

        Presidency is not a place to learn – it is the place to use learnings of a lifetime. The country cannot stop running till the president learns politics!! What happens if he makes a mistake – it is a country that is at stake!

  11. Ansell

    Why is everyone missing the point that we are in a deep political crisis with both the main presidential candidates being as racist and jingoistic as each other and that this all leaves very little hope for an equitable, transparent, democratic and peaceful Sri Lanka? And being “unpatriotic” is the least of SF’s crimes!!

  12. RANIL KEEP DREAMING TILL YOUR DEATH, AS RAJAPAKSE S WILL RULE OUR SRILANKA BEAUTIFULLY FOR ANOTHER 30 YEARS SURE. MAHINDA DESERVE SECOND TERM ON 26TH JAYA WEWA MAHINDA…..GO HOME SARATH+RANIL+MUNGONA+SOMAWATHI+GANESHAN….

    • mohammed badur

      mr. fazal , do you know mr. ranil has got the talent to do the sri lanka more beautiful than mr. rajapakse ??? sorry, your dream will end on 26th of january.

      • Jeen

        hehe Fazal is right. no need to check Ranil’s talent once again. we’ve seen that in 2001 to 2004.

        • Faizal

          Wich we have seen killing innocense in the name of war?And more to take bribe from every sectors?
          Defenetly i can say if we have given him the chance to governe more than that he will prove in every way that how our country should run for rapid growth.But puck like mahinda given money to the bloody LTTE’s and prevented the upcoming of this country.
          Further i can say gota ordered to kill the leaders of LTTE is true cos, then if they surrended ,their acting will leak to the public,which they given bribe to the LTTE during 2005 presidential election.

        • janatha

          mr.faizal..I also contribute for that kind of bribe to LTTE which ensure its defeat…people in this country had got a correct decision in 2005 and prevented the LTTE become powerful..otherwise today we may have to get visa to travel north and use LTTE money to spend there..So your RW has given 2/3 rd of this country to the bloody LTTE..
          further I can say we should worship the people who given the orders to kill the bloody LTTE leaders..what happened if our brigadiers like shvendra ,jagath Dias were taken by the LTTE..?

    Everyone! WHOA WHOA WHOA my sisters and brothers RELAX!

    READ THE ARTICLE CAREFULLY:
    “Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe said he hopes to function as Executive Prime Minister, AFTER the next GENERAL ELECTION is held.”

    At least learn to read the first sentence. Read to the bottom before barking and creating a stir. This is not a fish market, this is a forum for us ‘intellectuals’ to exchange ideas, we are not going to kill each other over some people that we do NOt know personally are we?

    Please Mr RW is right, its not a big deal, after the next general elections what if he wanted to be PM?

    Anyways at the end it says:

    “Wickremesinghe said, “We have agreed even after the Executive Presidency is abolished the General should head a council that will monitor the anti corruption drive.” This Council, Wickremesinghe asserted, should be non partisan and representative of all members in society including the opposition and civil society.

    Responding specifically to the question on what role exactly the General would play if the Presidency is abolished Wickremesinghe said, “He will head this council.”

    READ READ READ LMAO! YOU GUYS ARE HILARIOUS!

  15. Sarath Gamage

    I salute the Sunday Leader publishing thoughts of RW. If he grabs the executive premiership it will be the end of Sri Lanka, so intellegent Sri Lankan voters will do the needful by electing MR for his second term.

    • Roshan

      If voter who will vote for MR they can see his neww honda honda sellam.What MR did to this country?
      winning the war did he ordered to do the war for the sake of this country?No for sure he deviated the peoples view to the war and do what ever he can do for he ,his family,and his thuggery and juggery ministers to do big corruptions.
      THE wise person never vote for MR he is big cheater and big corruptor

      • Jane

        Like it or not – it WAS MR who was the ultimate commander – SL Army always had the ability to win this war – it is political leadership that was needed.
        So what did MR do – he lead this country to end a 30 year old war!

  16. Ranil Silva

    I think that if RW really loves Srilanka he should resign and let the UNP develop to what it can be . I do not personally have any dislike for the guy , in fact i believe that some of his policies like fiscal restraint has helped the country when he was in power for 2 years . The people clearly does not like the guy and i think its obvious to him , so why then not step aside and try to be a part the UNP , he could still hold some respectable post to server srilanka

    i would actually not mind voting for Sarath Fonseka but the thought of RW comming to power is quite unappetizing to say the least

      • Shaik

        Donkingkann you are assuming that SF after selling his soul and winning the Presidency, he is going to relinquish all powers and hand them over to Ranil Wickremasinghe. It is laughable people asking RW what role the General would play should he win, when they should be asking Sarath Fonseka what role RW would play under his Executive Presidency.

      • Jane

        Hey did YOU read it properly – RW says SF will “head the council that will monitor the anti corruption drive” that is ALL that SF will do. So the country will be run by the executive Prime Minister – Guess Who?

    • kumar

      I fully agree with you. His economic policies may be good but he has no charisma to lead a party or the country. What ever he says he says it in a way that he makes a fool of himself and the party, he cannot appeal to the comman man in SL in which Mahinda and Premedas were gurus

When the world economy was suffering and the established airlines were collapsing the ‘brilliant’ SL politicians ego is what matters!

      - Foreign minister spends Rs 100 million on foreign trips
      - Rs 90 million paid to Mr Thondaman to move to premises belonging to workers congress
      - Rs 100 million lost due to fraud at foreign employment ministry

        I wonder who is really back behind donkingkann.. Could be ranil him self doing some damage control…
        Ranil you got no political charisma but you head is working fine..
        No matter SF wins or looses Ranil always wins…Ranil the loose can stay in leadership for a life time…

        Corruptions you mentioned never been proven… Ranil and Mongola we know the drill of loosers.. We saw same drill against Obama’s champagne… saying he’s a muslim…and the drill against Mahinda calling him a thief… This is a low level campagne.. Voters are more matured now and they know the lie drill…

        This things i know personally…

        - Sarath Fonseka receive a land from the government worth Rs.100million from Srilankan Government
        - Sarath Fonseka receive a vehicle worth Rs.44million for just Rs.2million from Srilanka Government
        -Sarath Fonseka’s two children studying in USA for the date fully payed by the Srilankan Government..(Janadhipathi Aramudala )

        These seems to be a useless payment for a traitor like Fonseka…

          A car worth SLR44 million? You idiot there is no new car in Sri Lanka worth US$400,000!

          The only reason cars are worth that much are because of UPFA’s stupid tax you cybercock. In the USA, for $400,000 you can purchase 4 Mercedes S500 LWB cars!

          He got a car for cheaper because they waived the taxes! Cybercock how much do the ministers spend every month on renting a vehicle?
          How many vehicles?
          How many BMW’s? Mercs? Land Rovers? Please go suck dick after the 26th when people like you are in prison for corruption.

      துட்ட (சரத்) காமினிக்காக யாழ்ப்பாணம் நோக்கி ஒரு தூது!!! (செய்தி நோக்கு)

      சிங்கள தேசத்தின் அதிபர் தேர்தலுக்கான நாள் நிர்ணயிக்கப்பட்டு தேர்தல் களம் சூடுபிடிக்கத் தொடங்கியுள்ள நிலையில், தமிழீழ மக்களின் வாக்கு வங்கியைக் குறிவைத்து தமது காய்களை மகிந்த ராஜபக்சவும், சரத் பொன்சேகாவும் நகர்த்தி வருகின்றனர்.

      ஈழத்தீவின் தொன்மை மிக்க இனமாகத் திகழ்பவர்கள் தமிழர்கள். அசோகச் சக்கரவர்த்தியின் காலத்தில் ஈழத்திற்கு ஏற்றுமதி செய்யப்பட்ட பௌத்த மதம் சிங்களம் என்ற புதிய மொழியை உருவகித்துக் கொண்டதைத் தொடர்ந்து தோற்றம் பெற்ற இனமே சிங்கள இனம். பௌத்தத்தின் வருகைக்கும், சிங்களவர்களின் தோற்றுவாய்க்குப் பின்னரான கடந்த இரண்டாயிரத்து இருநூற்றைம்பது (2250) ஆண்டுகால நீட்சியில் தமிழ் மன்னர்களுக்கும், சிங்கள மன்னர்களுக்கும் இடையில் நிகழ்ந்தேறிய யுத்தங்கள் ஏராளம். இவ்வாறு இடம்பெற்ற யுத்தங்களில் தமிழர்களை வெற்றிகொண்ட ஒரேயொரு சிங்களக் கதாநாயகன் துட்டகாமினி.

      இந்தக் கதாநாயகனின் நவீன அவதாரம் யார் என்பதை நிர்ணயிப்பதற்கான களமாக சனவரி 26ஆம் நாள் அரங்கேறப்போகும் சிங்கள தேசத்தின் அதிபர் தேர்தல் களம் விரியத் தொடங்கியுள்ளது. துட்டகாமினியின் றுகுணு இராச்சியத்தின் வாரிசாக தன்னைப் பிரகடனப்படுத்தி அம்பாந்தோட்டையில் இருந்து தமிழீழ தேசம் மீது போர்தொடுத்த மகிந்த ராஜபக்சவிற்கு புதிய சவாலாக சரத் பொன்சேகா என்ற மற்றுமொரு துட்டகாமினி அம்பலாங்கொடையில் இருந்து களமிறங்கியுள்ளார்.

      கடந்த நான்கு ஆண்டுகாலப் பகுதியில் ஒன்றரை இலட்சத்திற்கும் அதிகமான தமிழீழ மக்களைக் கொன்றுகுவித்த இரண்டு நவீன துட்டகாமினிகள் இப்பொழுது தமது கூர்வாட்களை ஒருவரையொருவர் நோக்கித் திருப்பி நேருக்கு நேராக மோதிக்கொள்வதற்கு தயாராகின்றனர். இரண்டு துட்டகாமினிகளுக்கு மத்தியில் நடைபெறும் யுத்தத்தில் தமிழீழ மக்களின் வாக்கு வங்கி நேரடியாகக் குறிவைக்கப்படுகின்றது. டக்ளஸ் தேவானந்தா, முரளீதரன் (கருணா) சந்திரகாந்தன் (பிள்ளையான்) என்று தனது ஏவல் மந்திரிகளை முறையே யாழ்ப்பாணம், திருகோணமலை, மட்டக்களப்பு, அம்பாறை என்று மகிந்த ராஜபக்ச தூது அனுப்பி வைக்க, சரத் பொன்சேகாவின் தூதுவனாக கடந்த சனிக்கிழமை யாழ்ப்பாணம் நோக்கி விரைந்து சென்றார் ரணில் விக்கிரமசிங்க!

      எல்லாளன் மீது போர்தொடுப்பதற்கு முன்னர் கதிர்காமம் சென்று முருகப்பெருமானை துட்டகாமினி வழிபட்டதாக மகாவம்சம் பதிவுசெய்கின்றது. தமிழனை வெல்வதற்கு அப்பொழுதும்கூட தமிழ் கடவுளின் ஆசி தேவைப்பட்டது! இம்முறை சரத் பொன்சேகாவிற்காக தனது பரிவாரங்களான மனோ கணேசன், ஜெயலத் ஜெயவர்த்தன போன்றோருடன் யாழ்ப்பாணம் நோக்கி விரைந்த ரணில் விக்கிரமசிங்க தரிசித்த முதல் தலம் நல்லூர் முருகன்பதி.

      இப்பொழுது சரத் பொன்சேகா என்ற துட்டகாமினியின் வாக்கு வங்கியை நிரப்புவதற்கு தமிழ் கடவுளின் ஆசி ரணில் விக்கிரமசிங்காவிற்கு தேவைப்படுகின்றது.

      மேலங்கிகளை உதறியெறிந்துவிட்டு தாண்டுநடைபோட்டு தகத்தாண்டவமாய் நல்லூர் பதியை தனது பரிவாரங்களுடன் ரணில் வலம்வந்த காட்சி கண்கொள்ளாக் காட்சி!

      “எம்பெருமானே தமிழீழ தேசத்திற்கு மீட்சி தாராயோ!!” என்று முருகப்பெருமானிடம் பக்தகோடிகள் இருகரம்கூப்பி இறைஞ்ச, கைகள் இரண்டையும் பின்புறம் கட்டியவாறு முகத்தைத் திருப்பிக்கொண்டு முருக தரிசனம் கண்டார் ரணில் விக்கிரமசிங்க.

      அவருக்கு அருகில் வெகு பவ்வியமாக மனோ கணேசன் கைகட்டி வாய்புதைத்து நின்றது இக்கால அரசியல் சாணக்கியம்!

      கௌடில்யர் கூட தோற்றுவிடுவார்.

      நல்லூர் முருகன் பதியில் இருந்து நேரடியாக ஆரியகுளம் நாகவிகாரை நோக்கி விரைந்தது ரணில் பட்டாளம்.

      அங்கு பிக்குகளிடம் மண்டியிட்டு கைகளில் மாந்திரீக நூல் அணிந்துகொண்டனர் பொன்சேகாவின் தூதுவர்கள்.

      நாகவிகாரையில் இருந்து நேரடியாக தோமஸ் சௌந்தரநாயகம் அடிகளாரின் வாசத்தலத்தில் ரணிலுக்கு தேனீர் இடைவேளை.

      அங்கிருந்து தொடங்கியது ரணிலின் வாக்குவேட்டை!

      மனோ கணேசன் அருகிருந்து மொழிபெயர்க்க தொடங்கியது ரணிலின் வீரஉரை!

      “உங்களுக்கு சனநாயக ஆட்சி வேண்டுமா? குடும்ப ஆட்சி வேண்டுமா? குடும்ப ஆட்சி வேண்டும் என்றால் மகிந்தவிற்கு வாக்களியுங்கள். சனநாயக ஆட்சி வேண்டும் என்றால் சரத் பொன்சேகாவிற்கே உங்கள் வாக்கு. மகிந்தவை முதலில் வீட்டிற்கு அனுப்புவோம். இது தமிழ் மக்களுக்கு கிடைத்த அரிய வாய்ப்பு. தவறவிடாதீர்கள்!” என்று முழங்கித் தள்ளினார் ரணில்.

      ஆகா! என்ன அறிவுரை. என்ன ஆலோசனை.

      அந்த இடத்தில் ஒரு அசரீரி ஒலித்திருக்க வேண்டும்.

      அது ஒலித்ததோ இல்லையோ, ஆனால் மனோ கணேசனின் காதில் மட்டும் ஒரு ரீங்காரம் ஒலித்திருக்கும்.

      அது இதுதான்:-

      “பேயை ஆட்சியில் இருந்து அகற்றிவிட்டு முனியை ஆட்சியில் அமர்த்துவதற்கு யாழ்ப்பாணத் தமிழர்கள் என்ன ஏமாந்த சோணகிரிகளா?

      சிங்கள தேசத்தின் தேர்தலில் தமிழீழ மக்களுக்கு என்னதான் வேலை?”

    These two members together with about 25 more rebel UNP Ministers in the Government are lucky to have a President like Mahinda. Now the Excellency has thrown about 25 to 30 life saving belts into the sea from his boat, even though he had two more years to hold the Presidential Elections. The million doller hidden secret behind this gamble done by HE was due to the impending Parliamentary Elections due before the end of April 2010.
    So the President was faced with the uphill task of selecting UPFA lists of members for the General Elections in 2010, as he has already about 30 extra Cabinet Ministrs from the UNP with him, to give nominations from the UPFA list.
    But as he had already sitting MP’s who are members of the UPFA, where the rebel UNP Ministers were elected from, and also he has other SLFP electoral organizers in the district electorates, if had gone for a General Elections first, there would have been a big split within the Goverment Party sitting MP’s and electorate organizers, and the rebel UNP Ministers now within the Goverment, and the HE was faced with a difficult task of showing the gratitude for the rebel UNP members to keep their existing jobs as Ministers.
    So His Excellency the President was forced to go for a snap Presidential Elections first and to save the existing UPFA members Parliamentary seats, UNP rebel members Parliamentary seats in tact, by having the Presidential Elections two years ahead of time.
    And also the HE was aware of the if the Parlimentary Elections are held first, he has to name a Prime Minnisterial Candidate too. And also he has to leave room for the JHU members too to keep their MP positions, as he was faced with the task of accomodating them too on the UPFA list, together with other 13 political parties now supporting the President inside the Parlement.
    So the excellency the President had no choice open, but to sacrifice his two years for sake of the problems he was faced in preparing the UPFA nominations lists for the 2010 April Parlementary Elections.
    So now he has thrown several life saving belts from his boat, to rescue the rebel UNP Ministers, JHU, and other 13 political party representatives now supporting him in Parlement.
    Even though one may argue that by holding the Presidential Elections in adance time is to show how democracy exists in Sri Lanka, if we examine the above listed facts carefully, another person could argue that there was a hidden motivation, in having the Presidential Elections first.
    And also according to the TV news more that 200,000 displaced Tamil citizens have not applied for voting registration, and only about less than 7000 have applied so far, the argument put forward by His excellency the President saying that he is holding his elections first, to get the mandate from the tamil people in the North and East also leaves a big question hanging on now?????

    The reporter who published should be prosecuted and killed if this is wrong, after this news item did a much damage to our country. Now USA want another enquiry about Human rights violation on the final phase of the war. Chanel 4 in UK saying now they have evedence as army commander accepted that army did some HR violations. Canada and UK Tamils lodge a complain to UN to start an inquiry on HR violations by LSA. All of them saying that SLA commander confessed that they did HR violations. This stupid act of this newspaper can not be tolerated. Reporter must be killed. We can not afford any Sinhalese trying to damage our country, we are just trying to recover from the damage done by LTTE.

      Yeah Blacksheep maybe im frustrated. You are right I couldnt agree more. I am frustrated because idiots like you are brainwashed by the govt. You probably are making big bucks dealing with these crooks.

      I do not care about the country’s past. If you were in hospital and I helped you through a serious issue, does it give me the right to loot your house and harass your family in any manner?
      If you do not believe me please talk to people in ALL of my mentioned departments :-D
      I am more than a journalist. My family circles with the ‘politicks’. Thats all I care about. I know the truth so well but how do I prove it to these people?
      You are the dumbass as you say it. Read please:
      COPE report Rs 33,000 million fraud but no culprits ( because all politicians and henchman are the guilty ones!)
      - Mihin air …. lost 6 billion and then given another 3 billion. When the world economy was suffering and the established airlines were collapsing the ‘brilliant’ SL politicians ego is what matters! ( whole of heath sector for 20 million Sri Lankans received only Rs 5 billion and no wonder we hear stories such as ‘no surgery at national hospital due to shortage of medicine and equipment !!!!)
      - Losses identified Air Lanka 9.98 billion, Electricity board 39 billion, Ports Authority 3.5 billion, Petroleum Coop- 7.1 billion, SLTB 4.5 billion, Road development authority 9.9 billion
      - Rs 100 million lost to the SLTB for using busses in the one of the election campaigns.
      - 40 ministers with Colombo residencies claim Rs 100, 000 housing allowance and Rs 35,000 electricity/ water allowance to many other perks. Oops, don’t they say that they are really serving the poor!
      - Foreign minister spends Rs 100 million on foreign trips
      - Rs 90 million paid to Mr Thondaman to move to premises belonging to workers congress
      - Rs 100 million lost due to fraud at foreign employment ministry
      - Rs 150 million spent on 22 presidential advisors
      - 20 ministers having overspent asks for Rs 2.52 billion ( part of over spent is to buy luxury vehicles)
      - Govt. unable to account for Rs 1000 million from Maga-neguma project
      - SLT telecom loses Rs 324 million in a tender racket
      - Airlanka catering loses Rs 9000 million last yr from a profit of Rs 4000 million the previous year
      - More than 100 ministers ( India with 1 billion has only 22 ) and add the cost of many vehicles, offices, houses, security, assistants ( family members) wasting billions. On top of these the suck out every penny from the ministries!
      - Palaces for presidents family. Who cares for the 20 million citizens?

        Ur so stupid! U didn’t get what I meant.What I meant was the last two weeks Sunday leader is publishing news that are

        We need change! Eradicate corruption! Build an economy that will benefit all classes of the society & for the country as a whole. For this we need to get rid of the corrupt regime.

    கோப்பன்ஹேகன் பருவநிலை மாநாட்டில், முள்ளிவாய்க்காலில் இறுதி யுத்தத்தின் போது இலஙகை இராணுவத்தினால் ஏற்பட்ட மனித பேரழிவும் மற்றும் சுற்றுச்சூழல் சீர்கேடுகளையும் பற்றிய 13 நாட்கள் புகைப்படக் கண்காட்சியில் உலகம் முழுவதிலுமிருந்து ஆயிரக்கணக்கானவர்கள் பங்கேற்றுள்ளனர்.
    உலக சமாதானத்திற்கும், சுற்றுச்சூழல் பாதுகாப்பிற்காகவும் கடந்த 23 வருடங்களாக உலகை வலம்வந்து கொண்டிருக்கும், தமிழகத்தைச் சேர்ந்த த.சீனுவாசராவ் மற்றும் இரா.ஞானசேகரன் இருவரும் தற்போது ஏழாவது உலகப் பயணத்தில் ஈடுபட்டுள்ளார்கள். புவி வெப்ப உயர்வை தடுக்க அனைத்து நாடுகளும் ஒன்றுபட வேண்டும் என்ற கருத்தை வலியுறுத்தி ஹுண்டாய் டுசான் என்ற வாகனத்தில் இந்தியாவிலிருந்து 80,000 கிலோமீட்டர்கள் ஆசியா மற்றும் ஐரோப்பாவில் பயணம் செய்து தற்போது டென்மார்க்கில் நடந்துகொண்டிருக்கும் பருவநிலை மாற்ற மாநாட்டில் கலந்து கொண்டவர்கள். இவர்களுடன் சீனுவாசராவின் மனைவி தாமரை மற்றும் எட்டு வயது மகன் கோகுலவாணன் ஆறு வயது மகள் கயல்விழி ஆகியோரும் பயணம் செய்து வருவது குறிப்பிடத்தக்கது.

    தங்களது Global Warming Awareness பிரசாரத்தினூடே, தற்போது இலங்கையில் சிங்களவர்களால் சர்வதேச கோட்பாடுகளுக்கு எதிரான நிலையில், அப்பாவித் தமிழ் மக்களை பலமாதங்களாக, முள்வேளிக்குள் தடுத்து வைத்திருப்பதையும் மற்றும் கடந்த மே மாதம் முள்ளிவாய்க்கால் பகுதியில் 50,000 தமிழ் மக்கள் சிங்கள இராணுவத்தினால் கொன்று குவிக்கப்பட்டதை எதிர்த்து தாங்கள் செல்லும் நாடுகளிலெல்லாம் குரல் எழுப்பி வருகின்றனர். அதற்கு காரணமான ராஜபக்ஷவை போர்க்குற்றவாளியாக அறிவிக்க உலகம் முழுதும் பரப்புரை செய்து வருகின்றனர்.

    இங்கு கோப்பன்ஹேகனில் நடந்துவரும் பருவநிலை மாற்ற மாநாட்டில் பங்கேற்க சர்வதேச நாடுகளிலிருந்து அரசு சார்பற்ற அமைப்புகள் (NGO) அனைத்தும் ஆயிரக்கணக்கில் ஐ.நா நடத்தும் COP15 மாநாட்டிற்கு வருகை புரிந்துள்ளனர். நமது தமிழக இளைஞர்களும் கோப்ன்ஹேகன் மாநாட்டில் கலந்துக் கொண்டு, அங்கு, இலங்கை சிங்கள இராணுவத்தினால் நமது தமிழினம் கொன்றுக்குவிக்கப்பட்ட அவலத்தையும், தடை செய்யப்பட்ட நாசகாரக் குண்டுகளைப் பயன்படுத்தி மக்களும் மரம் செடிகொடிகளும் நிலங்களும் நீர்ப்பரப்பும் எவ்வாறு பாதிக்கப்பட்டிருக்கிறது என்பதை விளக்கும் வகையில் ஒரு புகைப்படக் கண்காட்சியை நடத்தி வருகின்றனர்.

    உலக நாடுகள் ஒன்றிணைந்து 1948ஆம் ஆண்டில் ஐக்கிய நாடுகளின் சபையின் வாயிலாக இனஅழிப்பிற்கெதிராக உருவாக்கப்பட்ட ஜெனிவா ஒப்பந்தத்தை மீறும் விதமாக இலங்கையின் சிங்கள அரசு, குழந்தைகளையும் அப்பாவித் தமிழ் மக்களையும் தடுப்பு வதை-முகாமில் வைத்திருப்பது அப்பட்டமான இனஅழிப்பு வேலை என்பதையும் இலங்கையில் முள்ளிவாய்க்கால் பகுதியில் நடைபெற்ற கடைசிகட்ட இனஅழிப்பு வேலையில் சிங்கள இராணுவம் 50,000 அப்பாவித் ஈழத் தமிழ் மக்களைக் கொன்று குவித்ததையும் விளக்கும் வகையில் பரப்புரை செய்து வருகின்றனர். ஞானசேகரனும், சீனுவாசராவும் அவரது மனைவி மற்றும் குழந்தைகளும் கொட்டும் பனியிலும் கடுங்குளிரிலும் அரங்கத்தின் வெளியே நின்றுக் கொண்டு குறிப்பேடுகளை பருவநிலை மாநாட்டிற்கு வருகைதரும் அனைவருக்கும் கொடுத்துவருவது குறிப்பிடத்தக்கது. புகைப்படக் கண்காட்சிக்கு வருகை புரியும் அனைத்து நாட்டு மக்களுக்கும், பத்திரிகைகளுக்கும் மற்றும் ஊடகங்களுக்கும் நமது ஈழத் தமிழினமும், ஈழமும் எப்படி இலங்கை அரசாலும் அதன் இராணுவத்தாலும் அழிக்கப்பட்டு வருகின்றது என்பதை விளக்கி வருகின்றனர்.

    இந்த புகைப்படக் கண்காட்சி பிரித்தானியா தமிழர் பேரவையும் டென்மார்க் தமிழர் பேரவையும் இணைந்து இந்த புகைப்படக் கண்காட்சியை ஏற்பாடு செய்தது குறிப்பிடத்தக்கது.

    பின்னர் மாநாடு முடிவடைந்தவுடன், இவர்கள், இங்கிருந்து இங்கிலாந்திற்கு பயணம் செய்து பின்னர் அங்கிருந்து வட அமெரிக்க கண்டத்திற்கு செல்ல உள்ளார்கள்.. முடிவாக 2010 ஏப்ரல் மாதம் ஐக்கிய நாடுகள் சபையில் அதன் பொதுச் செயலாளர் திரு பான் கீ மூன் அவர்களைச் சந்தித்து அவர்களது பயண அறிக்கையை சமர்பிக்க உள்ளார்கள்.

    இப்பயணத்திற்கு முன்னர் அவர்கள் ஆறு முறை உலகப்பயணம் மேற்கொண்டுள்ளார்கள். முதல் பயணம் 1986 முதல் 1989 வரை சைக்கிளிலியே உலக பயணமும் இரண்டாவது பயணம் 1990 முதல் 1993 வரை மாருதி ஜிப்சி வாகனத்திலும், மூன்றாவது உலகப் பயணம் 1996 முதல் 1998 வரை மாருதி சென் காரிலும், நான்காவது உலகப் பயணம் 2000 முதல் 2002 வரை மாருதி ஜிப்சி வாகனத்திலும், ஐந்தாவது உலகப் பயணம் 2002 முதல் 2004 வரைமாருதி ஜிப்சி வாகனத்திலும் பயணம் செய்திருக்கின்றார்கள். ஆறாவது உலகப் பயணத்தை ஹ{ண்டாய் அசெண்ட் காரில் 2005 முதல் 2007 வரையும் பயணம் செய்திருக்கின்றார்கள். இதுவரை 120 நாடுகளுக்கும் அனைத்து கண்டங்களின் வழியாக 6,00,000 கிலோமீட்டர்கள் தரை மார்க்கமாக பயணம் செய்திருக்கின்றார்கள். ஒவ்வொரு பயணத்தையும் ஐக்கிய நாடுகள் சபையில் அதன் பொதுச் செயலாளர்களைச் சந்தித்து வெற்றியுடன் அவர்கள் முடித்திருப்பது குறிப்பிடத்தக்கது.

    WELL DONE DEVANANDA.

    OUR SINHALESE BROTHERS SHOULD KNOW THE REAL TRUTH ON WHAT RALLY HAPPENED TO THE INNOCENT TAMILS DURING THA FINAL DAYS OF TH WAR.

    DO THEY KNOW THAT OVER 20,000 TAMILS BEEN KILLED BY ARIEL BOMBARDMENT AND THATS HOE RAJAPAKSE WON THE WAR.

    PLEASE GIVE THE ENGLISH VERSION SO THAT THESE UN EDUCATED SINHALESE WILL KNOW.

    • Kalag

      Who cares what happened in the final days? We won the war against terrorists. Tamils should accept that and forget about Eelam. They should join hands with Singhalese to develop the country. If they don’t want that, they should leave the country (may be to Australia as “Kallathoni”).

    • UC

      You say “RAJAPAKSE WON THE WAR” !!
      Not only him sir….We all won because of him. I don’t trust your claims lacking any evidences.
      You guys kept your stinky mouths shut when Praba dragged a generation Tamil youths to jungles and made their future dark! You kept stinky mouths shut when LTTE killed thousands of innocent civilians by bombing buses, trains, religious places, and other public places! You kept your stinky mouths shut when LTTE collected and took people with them when they are retreating putting their lives in danger! You kept your stinky mouths shut when they prevented civilians from escaping and used them as a human shield!
      Bark dog, bark loudly. That’s what you are trained for and only you know.

      You might be happy if war dragged

    My Dear Sri Lankan,

    Being a Sri Lankan it is nice to get another chance to elect a president for our beautiful country. Our president Honorable Mr Rajapakse starts stealing people’s money before he became president 4 years ago. He transferred all helping Hambanthota funds to his sister’s (Nirupama Rajapakse) accounts. For Mr President it is not a new thing.

    Yes winning the war against LLTE it’s a great thing. Part of credit should go to Mr President’s govt. But the full credit should go to our soldiers. How many soldiers died due to this war? Nobody knows. Well done Sri Lankan soldiers. Your truly champions.

    These are the major corruptions under Mr Rajapakse Govt
    1. After winning the war they SL Army found a container with full of gold which was belongs to Mr Prabhakaran (LTTE Leader) and SL army has handed over the container to Mr Basil Rajapakse (Biggest Theft) and after two weeks he announced saying that container went missing.
    2. After the winning the war Mr President lease the east cost to foreign investors and bribe 1.5 Billion rupees and bought a liquor producing factory in Venezuela.

    My dear Sri Lankans please think & vote.

      1. Yes, Basil Rajapakse took the Gold container home and buried it in his backyard. Hold on for a second… did not SF said he signed and gave the gold to officials of government treasury. Someone must be having a copy of that receipt. ..

      2. Get the name of that Venezuelan liquor factory and show the names of the shareholders. Nowadays this is not a difficult thing and I am sure you can bring the name and documents for 1% of money wasted on SF’s election campaign.

      By the way we finally saw the rusty old ship Rajapakse brother’s steal form LTTE . Its first journey would be to Venezuela.

      This crazy mud campaign has no end. MR must have done a few things right for people not to criticise his policies but just throw so much mud at them.

    DEAR EDITOR – WHY DIDN’T YOU PUBLISH MY INVESTIGATIVE COMMENT ON YOUR ESTEEM COLUMN WHICH HAS BEEN OBTAIN FROM SECRETIVE WIRE TAPPING OF INTERNATIONAL MEDIA – ARE YOU SCARED? PLEASE EXPLAIN

  39. Jehan

    The urgent need for country is to establish a corrupt free society for the well being of Sri Lankans, which SF has promised to eliminate. Therefore I think it’s better to try SF.

    If the common and the poor masses feels the high corruption should prevail and continue for the well being of the country people should vote for MR.

    End ot the day it’s the people’s choice and they have to face the consequences.

    We should also note if SF does not establish a corrupt free society after being inducted as president,. he too should be thrown out in subsequent elections.

    To me party politics is not the need of the hour all have to see the well being of our motherland.

    Let God Bless Sri Lanka

      It’s funny what LTTE Diaspora want in this country and Christian Fanatics wants in this country is so similar…
      Hey Jehan don’t try to tarnish the Evolution because your said to believe in creationism. Try to live on facts not on fiction.
      Prove MR is corrupt or shut-up…

          Basil bought Swarnavahini for Rupees 4000 Million!

          Read carefully. Army and Govt officials get duty free cars. He got an S350, which in duty free value would be around 60000 US dollars starting.

          An S500 starts from around 85000 US dollars.

          So in reality his car cost about 7 million rupees. Stop exaggerating. Go to the US or Middle East Mercedes website for DUTY FREE pricing.

          Please relax.

          An Aston Martin DB9 costs US$190,000 (approximately 21 Million RUPEES) there is no way in hell this would cost more than an aston martin. Especially, since it is NOT armoured (bomb/bullet proof).

          So please take your silly facts and go home. Do NOT ever debate about cars with me,

    Your excellency, you promised a lot, when you ran for office. Expectations were high when you became President. Your excellency, just look at the ‘mistakes’ during your short tenure of four years: the Kerawalapitiya Power Plant, padded with atleast a billion rupees, now incurring recurring annual losses of Rs. 20 billion; the Uma Oya contract, padded by, at least, Rupees 35 billion; the shameless subterfuges adopted to sign a contract for the CPC refinery expansion, padded by at least Rs. 115 billion; and the mother of all ‘mothers of mistakes,’ the CPC hedging fiasco, ably engineered by one of your handpicked ‘mistakes’ that has both cost the country over Rs.85 billion and adversely and irreparably damaged the CPC’s credit standing in capital markets. Your Excellency, you did not listen to reason or technocrats, but your own kith and kin ‘who could do no wrong.’ The ‘mistakes’ surely could not have been unknown to you, as the media and concerned technocrats had time and again brought these to your attention. The damage and suffering caused to the trusting public are beyond imagination – we have schools without teachers; teachers without schools; hospitals without doctors; doctors and patients without medicines; and, so on and so forth. Written with no anger or malice, but with deep sorrow regarding how a good man, who could have become great, has gone wrong.

    • Mangala

      Regarding the curruptions: Since 1977. we were observing all these corruptions. This is not new to us unless if you born after may be 1990s. :-)

      Your list highlighted above seems to be bit biased. You have not recognized some of the other very good projecs being carried out and even finalising the civil war.

      If you don’t do any work people won’t say anything. But if you start trying to do anythin people would start finding mistakes. This is common to Sri Lanka and most parts of the country. Try this your self and see if you don’t believe me. (Why people always scolding Premadasa and not JR/DB/Sirimavo or even Chandrika ? Because Premadasa only did some development work to the country. so focus is on him. Lukily he didn’t have good old brothers to get blamed…. :-)

        Country in danger

        UPFA leaders and intellectuals yesterday expressed alarm at the United Nations initiating a probe into allegations made by former Army Commander and Chief of Defence Staff General Sarath Fonseka that Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa had instructed 58 Brigade Commander Major General Shavendra Silva to shoot those surrendering.

      He may not be a liar, but he is the person who
      (1) signed a ceasefire agreement with LTTE betraying the nation
      (2) constantly denounced war against LTTE
      (3) demoralized army by saying Thoppigala is a jungle
      (4) accommodated and facilitated people like Mangala, Ravi and Kirialla who denounced SL army’s role in the war
      (5) invited Portuguese government to celebrate the 500 anniversary of their invasion of Sri Lanka.
      (6) didn’t do any development work (or at least initiation) during his term as a prime minister (please correct if I’m wrong)
      (7) facilitated or kept his mouth shut when government assets such as Sri Lanka Insurance Corporation were being sold for underrated values

        THIS WAS THE BRITISH TACTIC THAT MADE THE BRITISH EMPIRE. Divide and Conquer. Give minorities power dis-out the majority then create and anti-minority sentiment in Srilanka. Then majority will start to hate minority.
        There by staying in power.. Mr.Sarath Ponseka is not a politician. He knows only the tactics he learned in Military academy. Now he’s experimenting this on Sri Lankan people. Look at the tactical similarities with British Empire and Sarath Ponseka. “Divide and Conquer”.

        He’s a General not a Politician. Don’t get court in his military experiments.

      Fonseka’s allegation on war crimes:

      Country in danger
      *Under threat: 58 Division and Major General Shavendra Silva

      *Attempt to institute War Crimes Tribunal against Lanka to try leaders

      * Sri Lanka could be barred from UN peace keeping operations

      UN probe, a national issue

      Sandasen Marasinghe

      Prime Minister Ratnasiri Wickramanayaka yesterday requested media institution heads and newspaper editors to take the question of the United Nation’s demand for an explanation from the Sri Lankan Government in respect of the allegations made by retired Army Commander General Sarath Fonseka as a national issue irrespective of political allegiances. The Prime Minister made this request at a briefing at the Prime Ministers’ Office.

      Prime Minister Wickramanayaka remarked that it was bad for the country’s self-esteem as a situation has been created for international institutions to intervene in internal affairs and queried as to what would be the country’s future if this continued to happen.

      He also said the UN dealt with Governments and not with individual persons and as a member of the United Nations, the Sri Lankan Government had to respond to its demand.

      The letter dated December 18, 2009 sent by the United Nations to the Sri Lankan Government clearly said that its demand for explanation was based on allegations made by Fonseka in his interview to a Sunday Newspaper.

      The Government as a country had to give an explanation with reference to an incident that never happened, the Prime Minister said.

      Mass Media and Information Minister Anura Priyadharshana Yapa said it was pathetic that the Opposition Leader had made a statement at Chennai asking for an inquiry in this connection.

      UPFA leaders and intellectuals yesterday expressed alarm at the United Nations initiating a probe into allegations made by former Army Commander and Chief of Defence Staff General Sarath Fonseka that Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa had instructed 58 Brigade Commander Major General Shavendra Silva to shoot those surrendering.

      For the first time the United Nations has initiated a probe against Sri Lanka and this gives it and other international players an opportunity to interfere in the internal affairs of the country. The Army may have to forego opportunities for foreign training and attempts will be made to institute a War Crimes Tribunal.

        The Tamil Translation of above

        சரத் பொன்சேகாவின் கூற்றால் படையினருக்கு பெரும் நெருக்கடி-அரசாங்கம் விசனம்
        எதிரணி ஜனாதிபதி வேட்பாளர் சரத் பொன்சேகா, இராணுவம் தொடர்பில் தெரிவித்த கூற்றை அடிப்படையாகக்கொண்டு ஐக்கிய நாடுகள் சபை இலங்கையிடம் விளக்கம் கோரியுள்ளது. இதனால், நாட்டின் முப்படையினர் பாரிய நெருக்கடியை சந்தித்துள்ளனர். அவர்களால் வெளிநாடுகளுக்கு விஜயம் செய்ய முடியாத நிலைமை ஏற்பட்டுள்ளது. ஐ.நா.வின் அமைதிப்படைக்குக் கூட செல்வதில் இனிவரும் காலங்களில் எமது படையினர் சிக்கல்களை எதிர்நோக்கப் போகின்றனர் என்று அரசாங்கம் தெரிவித்துள்ளது.

        நாட்டு மக்கள், ஜனாதிபதித் தேர்தல் தொடர்பில் சற்று மறந்துவிட்டு, இந்த விடயம் தொடர்பில் கவனம் செலுத்தவேண்டும். இந்த நாட்டின் முப்படையினரை பாதுகாக்க அனைவரும் அணிதிரளவேண்டும் என்றும் அரசாங்கம் அறைகூவல் விடுத்துள்ளது. கொழும்பில் அமைந்துள்ள மகாவலி கேந்திர நிலையத்தில் நேற்று செவ்வாய்க்கிழமை காலை நடைபெற்ற செய்தியாளர் மாநாட்டில் கலந்துகொண்டு கருத்து வெளியிடுகையிலேயே அரசாங்கத்தின் அமைச்சர்கள் இந்த விடயங்களை குறிப்பிட்டனர்.

        செய்தியாளர் மாநாட்டில் கலந்துகொண்ட அமைச்சர் பேராசிரியர் ஜி.எல். கூறுகையில்,

        முன்னாள் இராணுவ தளபதியும் மற்றும் தற்போதைய ஜனாதிபதி வேட்பாளருமான சரத் பொன்சேகா இறுதிக்கட்ட யுத்தம் தொடர்பில் தெரிவித்துள்ள விடயங்கள் குறித்து இலங்கை அரசாங்கத்திடம் விளக்கம் கேட்டு ஐக்கிய நாடுகள் சபையின் பிரதிநிதி பிலிப் அல்ஸ்டன் ஜனாதிபதிக்கு கடிதம் ஒன்றை அனுப்பியுள்ளார். இதனால் நாட்டின் முப்படையினர் பாரியளவில் பாதிப்புக்குள்ளாகியுள்ளனர். முக்கியமாக முப்படையினர் வெளிநாடுகளுக்கு செல்ல முடியாத நிலைமை உருவாகியுள்ளது.

        காரணம் இராணுவம் தொடர்பான குற்றச்சாட்டை முன்னாள் இராணுவ தளபதியே முன்வைத்துள்ளார். இதனால் மேஜர் ஜெனரல் ஷவேந்திர சில்வா மற்றும் 58 ஆம் படைப்பிரிவின் அதிகாரிகள் என அனைவருக்கும் அபாயகரமான நிலைமை ஏற்பட்டுள்ளது. அவர்களால் இனி இங்கிலாந்துக்கோ சிங்கப்பூருக்கோ தனிப்பட்ட விஜயமாகவோ மருத்துவ தேவைக்காகவோ செல்ல முடியாத நிலைமை உருவாக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது. காரணம் நான் 58 ஆம் படைப் பிரிவை சேர்ந்தவன் அல்ல என்று அவர்களால் சத்தியகடதாசி கொண்டு செல்ல முடியாது. இராணுவ அதிகாரிகள் தமது பிள்ளைகளுக்கு வைத்தியம் செய்வதற்கும் வெளிநாடு செல்ல முடியாத நிலைமை காணப்படுகின்றது.

        ஐக்கிய நாடுகள் சபையின் பாதுகாப்பு சபை இந்த விவகாரத்தை பரிசீலித்து யுத்தக் குற்ற நீதிமன்றம் விசாரணை நடத்தவேண்டும் என்று பணிப்புரை விடுக்கலாம். இரண்டாம் உலக யுத்தத்தின் பின்னர் ஹிட்லரின் இராணுவ அதிகாரிகளுக்கு எதிராக நியூரன் பேர்க் நீதிமன்றம் விசாரணை நடத்தியது.

        அதன்போது உயர்மட்டம் தமக்கு அளித்த கட்டளையை தாம் நிறைவேற்றியதாக குறித்த இராணுவ அதிகாரிகள் தெரிவித்தனர். ஆனால், ஒவ்வொரு இராணுவ வீரருக்கும் தனிப்பட்ட பொறுப்பு உள்ளது என்று கூறி 11 இராணுவ அதிகாரிகளுக்கும் மரண தண்டனை விதிக்கப்பட்டது. அவ்வாறான வரலாறுகள் உள்ளன.

        இலங்கையில் புலிகள் தோற்கடிக்கப்பட்ட நிலையிலும் அவர்களின் சர்வதேச வலையமைப்பும் இயந்திரமும் இன்னும் வலுவாகவே உள்ளன. அவர்கள் இலங்கையின் பொருளாதார கட்டமைப்பை சீர்குலைக்க முயற்சிக்கின்றனர். இலங்கைக்கான உதவிகளை தடுத்தல், ஜீ. எஸ்.பி. பிளஸ் வரிச்சலுகையை நிறுத்தல் போன்ற விடயங்களை செய்ய பார்த்துக்கொண்டிருக்கின்றனர். மேலும் ஐரோப்பிய சந்தையில் எமது பிரவேசத்தை தடுப்பதற்கு முயற்சிக்கப்படுகின்றது.

        ஏற்கனவே எமக்கு எதிராக ஜெனிவாவில் அமைந்துள்ள ஐக்கிய நாடுகள் சபையின் மனித உரிமை பேரவையில் பல நடவடிக்கைகள் எடுப்பதற்கு முயற்சிக்கப்பட்டன. ஆனால் அதன்போது நாங்கள் வெற்றிபெற்றோம். ஆனால் அந்த விடயங்கள் மீண்டும் ஆரம்பிக்கப்படலாம். காரணம் பாரிய சாட்சியாக ஜெனரல் சரத் பொன்சேகாவின் கூற்று அமைந்துள்ளது. இதனைவிட பலமான சாட்சி இருக்க முடியாது. எனவே இது வரலாற்றில் பாரிய காட்டிக்கொடுப்பு என்று கூறவேண்டும் என்றார்.

        விமல் வீரவன்ச எம்.பி.

        இந்த செய்தியாளர் மாநாட்டில் தேசிய சுதந்திர முன்னணியின் தலைவர் விமல் வீரவங்ச கருத்து வெளியிடுகையில்,

        ஐக்கிய நாடுகள் சபை முதற்தடவையாக இலங்கை அரசாங்கத்திடம் இவ்வாறு விளக்கம் கோரியுள்ளது. அதாவது ஜெனரல் சரத் பொன்சேகாவின் கூற்றை ஏற்கின்றீர்களா அல்லது மறுக்கின்றீர்களா? அவ்வாறாயின் நிரூபியுங்கள் என்ற விடயங்களையே ஐ.நா. கேட்கின்றது. ஐ.நா. இவ்வாறான சந்தர்ப்பம் ஒன்றை எதிர்பாத்துக் கொண்டிருந்தது. தற்போது அந்த சந்தர்ப்பம் கிடைத்துள்ளது.

        பிலிப் அல்ஸ்டன் தான் இவ்விடயம் தொடர்பில் அறிக்கை சமர்ப்பிக்கவேண்டும் என்றும் அதற்காகவே இந்த கேள்விகளை கேட்பதாகவும் தெரிவித்துள்ளார். அவ்வாறு அவர் அறிக்கை சமர்ப்பித்தால் மனித உரிமை பேரவை விசாரணையை கோரும். நாங்கள் விசாரணையை ஏற்காவிட்டால் எம்மை உலக நாடுகளில் இருந்து ஓரம்கட்டிவிடுவார்கள். ஒருவேளை விசாரணையை ஏற்றுக்கொண்டால் விசாõரணைக் குழு இங்கு வந்து தேவையற்ற விடயங்களை ஆராய்ந்து முப்படையினர் மீது குற்றம் சுமத்தும். அவர்களின் விசாரணை அறிக்கை சமர்ப்பிக்கப்பட்டதும் நீதிமன்ற அழைப்பு விடுக்கப்பட்டு தண்டனை வழங்கப்படும். இதற்கான பின்னணியே தற்போது உருவாக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது என்பதனை தெரிவிக்கின்றோம். ஜனவரி 26 ஆம் திகதி மக்கள் யாரைவேண்டுமானாலும் ஜனாதிபதியாக தேர்ந்தெடுக்கலாம். ஆனால் இராணுவ வீரர்களை காட்டிக்கொடுக்க முடியாது. கடந்தகாலங்களில் சில நாடுகள் எமது நாட்டுக்கு எதிரõக விசாரணை செய்ய முயற்சித்தன. ஆனால் முடியவில்லை. எனினும் இம்முறை ஐக்கிய நாடுகள் சபை இவ்விடயத்தில் தலையிட சந்தர்ப்பம் அமைத்துக்கொடுக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது. கதவு திறக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது.

        எனவே இராணுவ வெற்றி காட்டிக்கொடுக்கப்படுகின்றமைக்கு எதிராக மக்கள் அணிதிரளவேண்டும். சிங்கள தமிழ் முஸ்லிம் மக்கள் என அனைவரும் ஒன்றிணைந்து செயற்படவேண்டும். ஜெனரல் சரத் பொன்சேகாவின் மறுப்பை ஐ.நா. ஏற்கவில்லை. அவரின் குற்றச்சாட்டையே பார்க்கின்றது. செல்வந்த நாடுகளின் பல அழுத்தங்களுக்கு மத்திலேயே ஜனாதிபதி யுத்தம் செய்தார். இராணுவ வீரர்களை யுத்த நீதிமன்றத்துக்கு அனுப்பிவிட்டு எதிரணி வேட்பாளர் ஜனாதிபதி ஆகப்போகின்றாரா? என்று குறிப்பிட்டார்.

        அமைச்சர் டலஸ் அழகப்பெரும

        செய்தியாளர் மாநாட்டில் அமைச்சர் டலஸ் அழகப்பெரும கருத்து வெளியிடுகையில் கூறுகையில்,

        ஜனாதிபதி தேர்தல் விடயத்தை சற்று நேரத்துக்கு மறந்துவிட்டு இந்த விடயம் குறித்து சிந்திக்குமாறு கோரிக்கை விடுக்கின்றோம். வெற்றிபெறுவதற்காக எதிரணி வேட்பாளர் தேர்தலில் போட்டியிடவில்லை என்பது தெளிவாகின்றது. ஆறு மாதங்களுக்கு முன்னர் எமது இராணுவத்துக்கு உலகில் சிறந்த மதிப்பு காணப்பட்டது. யுத்த விதிகளில் புதிய சம்பிராயத்தை கொண்டு வந்த இராணுவமாக பார்க்கப்பட்டது. அவ்வாறான இராணுவம் காட்டிக்கொடுக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது.

        எங்களின் உடல்களை தாண்டியே இராணுவ வீரர்களை யுத்தக் குற்ற நீதிமன்றத்துக்கு கொண்டு செல்லவேண்டியேற்படும் என்று மக்கள் விடுதலை முன்னணி கடந்த காலத்தில் தெரிவித்தது.

        இந்நிலையில் மக்கள் விடுதலை முன்னணி தற்போது என்ன கூறுகின்றது? எமக்கு எதிராக சில நாடுகள் முயற்சிகளை மேற்கொண்டு வந்தன. ருவாண்டாவில் நடந்தது போன்று இங்கு இடம்பெற்றதாக காட்டுவதற்கு முயற்சிக்கப்பட்டது.

        அவ்வாறான நாடுகளுக்கே எதிரணி வேட்பாளர் உதவி செய்கின்றார். எனவே இவ்ம்விடயம் தொடர்பில் சிந்தித்து செயற்படவேண்டியது குடிமக்களின் கடமையாகும் என்றார்.

        சரத் பொன்சேகாவின் கூற்றால் படையினருக்கு பெரும் நெருக்கடி-அரசாங்கம் விசனம்
        by வீரகேசரி நாளேடு

        எதிரணி ஜனாதிபதி வேட்பாளர் சரத் பொன்சேகா, இராணுவம் தொடர்பில் தெரிவித்த கூற்றை அடிப்படையாகக்கொண்டு ஐக்கிய நாடுகள் சபை இலங்கையிடம் விளக்கம் கோரியுள்ளது. இதனால், நாட்டின் முப்படையினர் பாரிய நெருக்கடியை சந்தித்துள்ளனர். அவர்களால் வெளிநாடுகளுக்கு விஜயம் செய்ய முடியாத நிலைமை ஏற்பட்டுள்ளது. ஐ.நா.வின் அமைதிப்படைக்குக் கூட செல்வதில் இனிவரும் காலங்களில் எமது படையினர் சிக்கல்களை எதிர்நோக்கப் போகின்றனர் என்று அரசாங்கம் தெரிவித்துள்ளது.

        நாட்டு மக்கள், ஜனாதிபதித் தேர்தல் தொடர்பில் சற்று மறந்துவிட்டு, இந்த விடயம் தொடர்பில் கவனம் செலுத்தவேண்டும். இந்த நாட்டின் முப்படையினரை பாதுகாக்க அனைவரும் அணிதிரளவேண்டும் என்றும் அரசாங்கம் அறைகூவல் விடுத்துள்ளது. கொழும்பில் அமைந்துள்ள மகாவலி கேந்திர நிலையத்தில் நேற்று செவ்வாய்க்கிழமை காலை நடைபெற்ற செய்தியாளர் மாநாட்டில் கலந்துகொண்டு கருத்து வெளியிடுகையிலேயே அரசாங்கத்தின் அமைச்சர்கள் இந்த விடயங்களை குறிப்பிட்டனர்.

        செய்தியாளர் மாநாட்டில் கலந்துகொண்ட அமைச்சர் பேராசிரியர் ஜி.எல். கூறுகையில்,

        முன்னாள் இராணுவ தளபதியும் மற்றும் தற்போதைய ஜனாதிபதி வேட்பாளருமான சரத் பொன்சேகா இறுதிக்கட்ட யுத்தம் தொடர்பில் தெரிவித்துள்ள விடயங்கள் குறித்து இலங்கை அரசாங்கத்திடம் விளக்கம் கேட்டு ஐக்கிய நாடுகள் சபையின் பிரதிநிதி பிலிப் அல்ஸ்டன் ஜனாதிபதிக்கு கடிதம் ஒன்றை அனுப்பியுள்ளார். இதனால் நாட்டின் முப்படையினர் பாரியளவில் பாதிப்புக்குள்ளாகியுள்ளனர். முக்கியமாக முப்படையினர் வெளிநாடுகளுக்கு செல்ல முடியாத நிலைமை உருவாகியுள்ளது.

        காரணம் இராணுவம் தொடர்பான குற்றச்சாட்டை முன்னாள் இராணுவ தளபதியே முன்வைத்துள்ளார். இதனால் மேஜர் ஜெனரல் ஷவேந்திர சில்வா மற்றும் 58 ஆம் படைப்பிரிவின் அதிகாரிகள் என அனைவருக்கும் அபாயகரமான நிலைமை ஏற்பட்டுள்ளது. அவர்களால் இனி இங்கிலாந்துக்கோ சிங்கப்பூருக்கோ தனிப்பட்ட விஜயமாகவோ மருத்துவ தேவைக்காகவோ செல்ல முடியாத நிலைமை உருவாக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது. காரணம் நான் 58 ஆம் படைப் பிரிவை சேர்ந்தவன் அல்ல என்று அவர்களால் சத்தியகடதாசி கொண்டு செல்ல முடியாது. இராணுவ அதிகாரிகள் தமது பிள்ளைகளுக்கு வைத்தியம் செய்வதற்கும் வெளிநாடு செல்ல முடியாத நிலைமை காணப்படுகின்றது.

        ஐக்கிய நாடுகள் சபையின் பாதுகாப்பு சபை இந்த விவகாரத்தை பரிசீலித்து யுத்தக் குற்ற நீதிமன்றம் விசாரணை நடத்தவேண்டும் என்று பணிப்புரை விடுக்கலாம். இரண்டாம் உலக யுத்தத்தின் பின்னர் ஹிட்லரின் இராணுவ அதிகாரிகளுக்கு எதிராக நியூரன் பேர்க் நீதிமன்றம் விசாரணை நடத்தியது.

        அதன்போது உயர்மட்டம் தமக்கு அளித்த கட்டளையை தாம் நிறைவேற்றியதாக குறித்த இராணுவ அதிகாரிகள் தெரிவித்தனர். ஆனால், ஒவ்வொரு இராணுவ வீரருக்கும் தனிப்பட்ட பொறுப்பு உள்ளது என்று கூறி 11 இராணுவ அதிகாரிகளுக்கும் மரண தண்டனை விதிக்கப்பட்டது. அவ்வாறான வரலாறுகள் உள்ளன.

        இலங்கையில் புலிகள் தோற்கடிக்கப்பட்ட நிலையிலும் அவர்களின் சர்வதேச வலையமைப்பும் இயந்திரமும் இன்னும் வலுவாகவே உள்ளன. அவர்கள் இலங்கையின் பொருளாதார கட்டமைப்பை சீர்குலைக்க முயற்சிக்கின்றனர். இலங்கைக்கான உதவிகளை தடுத்தல், ஜீ. எஸ்.பி. பிளஸ் வரிச்சலுகையை நிறுத்தல் போன்ற விடயங்களை செய்ய பார்த்துக்கொண்டிருக்கின்றனர். மேலும் ஐரோப்பிய சந்தையில் எமது பிரவேசத்தை தடுப்பதற்கு முயற்சிக்கப்படுகின்றது.

        ஏற்கனவே எமக்கு எதிராக ஜெனிவாவில் அமைந்துள்ள ஐக்கிய நாடுகள் சபையின் மனித உரிமை பேரவையில் பல நடவடிக்கைகள் எடுப்பதற்கு முயற்சிக்கப்பட்டன. ஆனால் அதன்போது நாங்கள் வெற்றிபெற்றோம். ஆனால் அந்த விடயங்கள் மீண்டும் ஆரம்பிக்கப்படலாம். காரணம் பாரிய சாட்சியாக ஜெனரல் சரத் பொன்சேகாவின் கூற்று அமைந்துள்ளது. இதனைவிட பலமான சாட்சி இருக்க முடியாது. எனவே இது வரலாற்றில் பாரிய காட்டிக்கொடுப்பு என்று கூறவேண்டும் என்றார்.

        விமல் வீரவன்ச எம்.பி.

        இந்த செய்தியாளர் மாநாட்டில் தேசிய சுதந்திர முன்னணியின் தலைவர் விமல் வீரவங்ச கருத்து வெளியிடுகையில்,

        ஐக்கிய நாடுகள் சபை முதற்தடவையாக இலங்கை அரசாங்கத்திடம் இவ்வாறு விளக்கம் கோரியுள்ளது. அதாவது ஜெனரல் சரத் பொன்சேகாவின் கூற்றை ஏற்கின்றீர்களா அல்லது மறுக்கின்றீர்களா? அவ்வாறாயின் நிரூபியுங்கள் என்ற விடயங்களையே ஐ.நா. கேட்கின்றது. ஐ.நா. இவ்வாறான சந்தர்ப்பம் ஒன்றை எதிர்பாத்துக் கொண்டிருந்தது. தற்போது அந்த சந்தர்ப்பம் கிடைத்துள்ளது.

        பிலிப் அல்ஸ்டன் தான் இவ்விடயம் தொடர்பில் அறிக்கை சமர்ப்பிக்கவேண்டும் என்றும் அதற்காகவே இந்த கேள்விகளை கேட்பதாகவும் தெரிவித்துள்ளார். அவ்வாறு அவர் அறிக்கை சமர்ப்பித்தால் மனித உரிமை பேரவை விசாரணையை கோரும். நாங்கள் விசாரணையை ஏற்காவிட்டால் எம்மை உலக நாடுகளில் இருந்து ஓரம்கட்டிவிடுவார்கள். ஒருவேளை விசாரணையை ஏற்றுக்கொண்டால் விசாõரணைக் குழு இங்கு வந்து தேவையற்ற விடயங்களை ஆராய்ந்து முப்படையினர் மீது குற்றம் சுமத்தும். அவர்களின் விசாரணை அறிக்கை சமர்ப்பிக்கப்பட்டதும் நீதிமன்ற அழைப்பு விடுக்கப்பட்டு தண்டனை வழங்கப்படும். இதற்கான பின்னணியே தற்போது உருவாக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது என்பதனை தெரிவிக்கின்றோம். ஜனவரி 26 ஆம் திகதி மக்கள் யாரைவேண்டுமானாலும் ஜனாதிபதியாக தேர்ந்தெடுக்கலாம். ஆனால் இராணுவ வீரர்களை காட்டிக்கொடுக்க முடியாது. கடந்தகாலங்களில் சில நாடுகள் எமது நாட்டுக்கு எதிரõக விசாரணை செய்ய முயற்சித்தன. ஆனால் முடியவில்லை. எனினும் இம்முறை ஐக்கிய நாடுகள் சபை இவ்விடயத்தில் தலையிட சந்தர்ப்பம் அமைத்துக்கொடுக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது. கதவு திறக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது.

        எனவே இராணுவ வெற்றி காட்டிக்கொடுக்கப்படுகின்றமைக்கு எதிராக மக்கள் அணிதிரளவேண்டும். சிங்கள தமிழ் முஸ்லிம் மக்கள் என அனைவரும் ஒன்றிணைந்து செயற்படவேண்டும். ஜெனரல் சரத் பொன்சேகாவின் மறுப்பை ஐ.நா. ஏற்கவில்லை. அவரின் குற்றச்சாட்டையே பார்க்கின்றது. செல்வந்த நாடுகளின் பல அழுத்தங்களுக்கு மத்திலேயே ஜனாதிபதி யுத்தம் செய்தார். இராணுவ வீரர்களை யுத்த நீதிமன்றத்துக்கு அனுப்பிவிட்டு எதிரணி வேட்பாளர் ஜனாதிபதி ஆகப்போகின்றாரா? என்று குறிப்பிட்டார்.

        அமைச்சர் டலஸ் அழகப்பெரும

        செய்தியாளர் மாநாட்டில் அமைச்சர் டலஸ் அழகப்பெரும கருத்து வெளியிடுகையில் கூறுகையில்,

        ஜனாதிபதி தேர்தல் விடயத்தை சற்று நேரத்துக்கு மறந்துவிட்டு இந்த விடயம் குறித்து சிந்திக்குமாறு கோரிக்கை விடுக்கின்றோம். வெற்றிபெறுவதற்காக எதிரணி வேட்பாளர் தேர்தலில் போட்டியிடவில்லை என்பது தெளிவாகின்றது. ஆறு மாதங்களுக்கு முன்னர் எமது இராணுவத்துக்கு உலகில் சிறந்த மதிப்பு காணப்பட்டது. யுத்த விதிகளில் புதிய சம்பிராயத்தை கொண்டு வந்த இராணுவமாக பார்க்கப்பட்டது. அவ்வாறான இராணுவம் காட்டிக்கொடுக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது.

        எங்களின் உடல்களை தாண்டியே இராணுவ வீரர்களை யுத்தக் குற்ற நீதிமன்றத்துக்கு கொண்டு செல்லவேண்டியேற்படும் என்று மக்கள் விடுதலை முன்னணி கடந்த காலத்தில் தெரிவித்தது.

        இந்நிலையில் மக்கள் விடுதலை முன்னணி தற்போது என்ன கூறுகின்றது? எமக்கு எதிராக சில நாடுகள் முயற்சிகளை மேற்கொண்டு வந்தன. ருவாண்டாவில் நடந்தது போன்று இங்கு இடம்பெற்றதாக காட்டுவதற்கு முயற்சிக்கப்பட்டது.

        அவ்வாறான நாடுகளுக்கே எதிரணி வேட்பாளர் உதவி செய்கின்றார். எனவே இவ்ம்விடயம் தொடர்பில் சிந்தித்து செயற்படவேண்டியது குடிமக்களின் கடமையாகும் என்றார்.

    Fonna-Seka & Run-Nill are day dreaming! I am waiting to listen after 26th January, what they are going to tell? Run-Nil will say, if I had contested, I will definitely win. But I gave a chance to political ZERO Fonna-Seka

        Your only wish is get Mahinda back and let him to eat it?

  49. Siripala

    Why suddenly leader took a 180 degrees turn. We know you have financial problems but we never thought you would get caught to Gota’s and Basil’s money. They told Mano Ganeshen that they would finance. Did Federica Jansz get caught to Rajapaksa’s ? So Leader goes in par with those who killed its founder. Very sorry
