Hats Off to JVP Mps and
Mr Anura Bandaranaike on their words of
caution to TNA Tigers
Ramanie de Zoysa
Please let me congratulate through your website the JVP Mps and Mr
Anura Bandaranaike on their words of caution to the LTTE hooligans
posing off as 'Members of Parliament' regarding their uncouth behaviour
in the Sri Lankan Parliament.
While threatening and depraved behaviour may be the norm in their
normal surroundings in the wanni with their criminal leader Prabhakaran
and the tough talking fool Thamilselvan, the civilised society demands
a certain decorum in conduct and unless the TNA reps are prepared
to acquire some social skills in this regard it is imperative that
the Speaker of the House take over the charge of disciplining them.
However, sadly, the Sri Lankan Speaker seems to be either incapable
or unwilling to carry out his job for some unfathomable reason. I
hope it wil not be long before a motion of no confidence is brought
against the present 'speechless' Speaker to replace him with someone
with a backbone to do the job he is getting paid for.
Under no circumstances should the Speaker have allowed the LTTE rogues
in parliament to issue death threats against the Armed Forces of the
Democratic Republic of Sri Lanka or have allowed the recent outbursts
of Sivaji Lingam.
To get any other job in this country a person must achieve a minimum
level of education, competency and civility but none of these requirements
seem to be needed for someone to be able to become part of the executive
of the country. TNA 'MPs' have now set the precedent that one doesn't
even have to win a democratic election to get into the parliament.
When is the President and the Executive of the country going to use
the powers they have been bestowed on them by the voting public to
run the affairs of the country in an assertive manner? When is Sri
Lankan public going to get the quality of representation it deserves?
Last but not least, when is the Sri Lankan Government going to stop
using the country's resources to deploy state troops to protect and
transport the LTTE terrorists against their own enemies? The continued
use of our soldiers as rikshaw-wallahs and bodyguards for the LTTE
killers who slaughtered our valiant soldiers by the thousands must
be the worst descecration of the memory of our beloved dead. Where
is our politicians' sense of right and wrong, justice and injustice
and dignity and ignominy?
