Who's The Real Joker ? Asks The World Council Of Sinhala Peers From C. Ramachandra of Ratmalana!
Gemunu Kumara -World Council Of Sinhala Peers For LankaWeb
An opinion that Sri Lanka Politicians may be jokers but not the citizens
of this country-Courtesy of C.Ramachandra perhaps written under a
pseudonym seems to believe that President Chandrika Kumaratunga was
trifling with Constitutional Accords vested in her as he condemns
the reason given by her for her taking over the Defence, Communication
and Interior Ministries that it was the deteriorating security situation
and the breakdown in law and order which prompted her actions to which
no confirmation is needed as a majority of the Sinhala Nation agrees
that it was indeed the appropriate thing to do with the Nation's Sovereignity
and Territorial Integrity on the line as a result of the current administration's
attitude and actions of over conciliatory overtures and handouts to
the LTTE in a blind expectation that it would resolve the situation
in the country.
Next he goes on to question the President as to why she did not sack the Minister of Defence his deputy and the Secretary of Defence at the time of her party's incumbency while observing that the state media were like" a PA mouthpiece"band that in the past 20 months have been more balanced than in the previous 30 years where he ridicules the President's effort to introduce media freedom as expressed in his words "coming from the daughter of a person who shut down the Sun newspaper in 1975 and who herself banned the Sunday Leader" which seems a somewhat confused interpretation of ideas yet a message seems to have been inadvetently sent across through this near satirical composition which if interpreted rationally sounds as though" finally the President has cast aside her role of tolerance and leniency as political cohabitational partner with the UNF Leader towards restoring the right of the Sinhala Nation and has decided to boot out the undesirables and turncoats and pull the plug on an administration which has continued to hurtle Sri Lanka towards a disastrous capitulation to her enemies, the enemies of the State the LTTE and there are many within Sri Lanka who would drink to that! Certainly the once Government controlled Media and State Owned newspapers are now singing many different tunes to those sung prior to their acquisition by the President and the degree of sincerity a welcome change when the news is currently read and information reported !
That the Ramachandran epistle has chosen fit to undermine the opinion and resolve of a highly respected Sri Lankan Intellectual, the former Minister of Foreign Affairs Mr Laxman Kadirgamar who has prudently concurred with the President and the Sinhala Nation and supportives that to accede to the LTTE counter proposal sometimes also termed the ISGA would be a signing away of Sri Lanka Sovereignity and Territorial Integrity is indicative of the mentality and perception of a befuddled mind which seems to have been conditioned to the same rationale of a presidential title seeking UNF Leader and the separatist LTTE which does not lend any credibility towards Ramachandra's entreaties and alternate suggestions which have also been frowned upon by Superpower neighbor and mentor India and rather than suggesting to Mr Kadirgamar to "shut up!" the writer is probably better off turning his attention towards composing children's tales as an alternative to political dialogue considering the frailities of mind and the incapacity to comprehend Constitutional Accords and Democratic Rights and related securities of a Sovereign Nation and continue to provide amusemnet to the Nation only if the objectives are to entertain though no laughing matter!
A degree of plausibility in the suggestion to appoint Mr. Kadirgamar as head of the Peace Delegation has surfaced in the document under reference as the only sensible statement contained therein to which due credit needs imparting as Mr. Kadirgamar beyond a doubt possesses all the credentials and carries all the credibilities needed for the assignment and perhaps in due course might materialise as the viable alternative now that the former idealogue Anton Balasingham too appears to have been re-designated to the Peace Talks ( No more Planting of Seedlings, Mafioso Style Embraces and Foreign Banquets at the Taxpayers's Expense Please) as the superimposition of Thamilchelvam seems poised to unfold and yes "The Two Third Majority In Parliament" as accessible as the moon for the UNF and must remain a constant reminder and deterrent towards any fancy propaganda if that is the intention of the Ramachandra "White Paper" which seems to be an out and out endorsement of the excesses of the UNF Administration and the direction of the LTTE who in fact seem to be going nowhere as are the Norwegian Peacekeepers who must probably be better off remaining in Norway!
In conclusion it must also be mentioned that the patriotic Sihala Urumaya also an organization of great decorum and integrity would hardly bother to respond to the statements of derision and provocation meted out to them by this prosaic writer from Ratmalana where some clarifications seems in need to establish what the real intentions are of the negative feedback and contradictory depictions of what might be interpreted as unpatriotic sentiment by a disillusoned propagandist where the last laugh belong to the Sinhala Nation at the Joker he is trying to be!
