The Opposition Leader And
His Cronies Are Making Themselves Liable To Treasonous Behaviour In
The Name Of Democracy!
Insight By Sunil Kumara
July 16th 2007
In a classic example of Jingoism and cronyism combined
with rank disdegard to the manner in which he as Opposition Leader should
conduct himself Ranil Wickremasinghe continues his desperate attempts
to smear and slander the President and his administration.
L little realising the specatacle he is making of himself as his rhetoric
often laced in lies, innuendo and deperate concoctions typify exactly
what he and his cronies in his new formed alliance with Mangala Samaraweera
and Sripathy Sooriyarachi amongst others accuse the Rajapaksha Administration.
If only he would take a good look at himself in the mirror and pause
to think for a moment despite all his indiscretions, by some stroke
of fortune towards his personal well being might realise he is headed
in a dangerous direction with far reaching consequences for himself
much worse than what another of his former buddies and an aide de camp
SB Dissanayaka was subjected to by way of indictment, incarceration
and imprisonment for what was interpreted as irresponsible and reprehensible
actions against the then Administration.
The leader of the opposition has had the affront to take on the all
powerful albeit wise, pragmatic and compassionate President whose patience
is probably wearing thin over the continuous slander insults the Rajapaksha's
are being subjected to.
Through the Wickremasinghe rhetoric which he says is in the name of
democracy but all things considered he seems to have forgotten his own
darker side when one recalls his role in the Batalanda massacres, conciliations
to Sri Lanka's Public Enemy No1.
His role in the build up of LTTE terrorist capability whaich has come
back to haunt him and how fortunate he was that the then President turned
a blind eye to his liabilities thereto. He still has the freedom to
spew insults at the present President of Sovereign Sri Lanka in his
vain attempt to regain administrative power when many believe he should
be behind bars or at least under house arrest! He has no Carte Blance
to be unequivocally obstreperous towards discrediting the President!
Wickremasinghe is also held in contempt by many Sri Lankans that it
is he himself and none other who was willing to betray the Nation into
the hands of the LTTE during his tenure as Prime Minister.
Here he is now making wild accusations with no tangible proof that
the President had cut a deal with Velupillai Prabhakaran during the
last Presidential elections where it seems rather suprising that the
President does not challenge the unlikely trio of Wckremasinghe, Samaraweera
and Sooriyarachi to put their monies where their mouths are on the related
issue or face punitive liabilities and the related incarcerations being
serious allegations against a Head of State!
And that is not the end of the story, Wickremasinghe has also taken
on the faction of the High Buddhist Clergy which is probably the most
powerful of them all and represent the people of the Nation who voted
them into Parliament.
Wickremasinghe a converted Buddhist from a high Anglican heritage is
even trying to preach Buddhist philosophy to the clergy of the JHU suggesting
that they have brought disrepute to the Buddhist Sasana and another
example of the man's ignorance and apathy where his related transparencies
are plainly visible and fast becoming the laughing stock of the Nation
which can never be brainwashed by the cooked up gobbledeygook of the
Wickremasinghe entourage and is probably headed for dire straits as
far as his political future is concerned!
Here is an example of the wrath he has incurred amongst the Buddhist
Clergy! " By the reception accorded to the Tigers, Ranil has been
appointed theTiger Leader of the South of United Sri Lanka.said
Aturelye Rathana Thero as reported in the Dinamina Newspaper of 31st
The Lakbima Newspaper of 8th Sept. 2005 reported, Archaeological Scholar
Ellawala Medananda Thero as saying Ranil ! means, the one who
is with the LTTE, fulfilling the ambitions of the Tigers. If by an unfortunate
circumstance, Ranil becomes the President, people have to consume poison
and die in a divided Lanka Athureliya Rathana Thero told on 29th
Another expression of dismay reads Now Ranil is helping the Tigers.
Ranil will come only after agreement with the Tigers quoting Champaka
Ranawaka on 11th Oct. 2006 in a media statement.
In his latest entreaty to the nation where he says "All must rally
to save the country from the Rajapakse Co. Buddha Sasana from evil Buddhist
Clergy Co.- while addressing a training workshop for Media Secretaries
at Sri Kotha on 13th July 2007
Ranil Wickremesinghe has typified what many accuse him of as being,
an assinine, verbose and reckless individual prepared to gamble with
his credibilities which even at the present are at a very low ebb where
many of the more discerning within Sri Lanka hold him in very poor esteem!
Perhaps his slogan sans credibility against the Rajapaksha Administration
needs to be rephrased to read "THE NATION SHOULD RALLY AGAINST
THE JINGOISM AND CRONYISM OF RANIL WICKREMASINGHE TO THWART HIS DESPERATE
ATTEMPT TO BRING SRI LANKA TO DISREPUTE IN THE EYES OF THE WORLD!"
The following item which contains reprehensible and very contentious
accusatiions against the Administration as well as the Jathika Hela
Urumaya and the Sihala Urumaya all dedicated towards National Patriotism
and a fervour towards the Sinhala Nation in an unprecedented affinity
in the long history of the Nation that the likes of Wickremasinghe and
his cronies will in all probabilities never comprehend in a lifetime
being the traitors and betrayers they have proved themselves to be !
Harping on a dubious theme of " awarded " contracts in an
attempt to link the President to a speculated act of irregularity with
deliberate intent, despite cooked up affidavits, names of unlikely go
betweens and a whole slew of innuendo which no intelligent or perceptive
individual will truly believe or accept as reality as the tangible requirements
towards real proof seem to be conspicuously absent in Wickremasinghe's
presentation to the Nation and as a matter of fact seems sacrileginous!
In all probabilities Wickremasinghe has this time around bitten off
a bit more than he could chew or digest where his ensuing discomforts
are bound to be visibly apparent to the Nation soon enough!! It is hoped
for his sake that the Administration will not lay charges in response
to his accusations as the Head of the Justice System in Sri Lanka does
not view such indiscretions as being exempt from the related liabilities
by virtue of status or high office and there are many within Sri Lanka
who believe Wickremasinghe and his cronies are guilty of treasonous
behavious in the name of their own concept of Democracy in deference
to National Unity where there is already an elected and accepted Head
"All must rally to save the country from the Rajapakse Co. Buddha
Sasana from evil Buddhist Clergy Co.- "
The UNP is a Peoples Party. As before, so we shall continue to
protect the Institutions of Democracy in the country. Today, we are
saddled with the task of protesting and fighting against the Rajapakse
Bros. Co. who have shaken the very foundation of Democracy by their
secret pact with the Tigers. This sordid secret deal was disclosed by
none other than President Rajapakses erstwhile Ministers Sripathy
Suriarachy and Mangala Samaraweera,,( now in their own new Party SLFP
(M)) ,who were present at the scene of the actual discussions between
the LTTE and Rajapakse Bros.
Sripathy Suriyaachi pointed out in Parliament with actual facts that
President Rajapakse in his program for the last Presidential elections
had a secret deal with the LTTE to prevent the Tamil voters in the North
from exercising their franchise.
Accordingly, Tiran Alles who met the LTTE in regard to the secret deal
agreed to pay Rs.1500 million to them. Rs. 700 million before and Rs.800
million after the elections.
This Deal has been widely published, the Newspapers as well as we have
made public announcements, but there have been no protests against this
nor any action for defamation filed by the Govt. This means that the
defamations are true.
But, one event occurred, the Maubima Newspaper office was closed for
exposing this, and its Chairman taken into custody.
Tiran Alles has made a special statement to the Police as to how he
introduced Emil Kanthan, the LTTE link to Basil Rajapakse, Lalith Weeratunge
and P.B. Jayasundara. He had also stated very clearly how this group
agreed to make the payment to the LTTE. Besides, Alles, continuing his
statement has explained how this group had agreed to facilitate this
payment by a Cabinet paper.
A Weekend Newspaper too had given out details of this Cabinet paper.
This paper has been presented on 02 August 2006. Mind you, this atrocious
Cabinet paper has been signed by the Countrys President, himself.
The so called Dutugemunu the 2nd, and so called fifth in line
Mahinda Mahinda Rajapakse.
Although the majority is Sinhalese in this country, this Cabinet paper
was presented in English. Rehabilitation of this Country under
Jayalanka Housing Project First phase of the North East Housing
program. It was under this title the Cabinet paper was presented.
This Cabinet paper was devised to give the construction of 400 houses
in Triincomalee to D.M.K.Holdings Pvt. Ltd. of 437/A, 3rd Lane,Vavuniya,
and Batticaloa construction of 400 Houses to Everest Civil Engineering
Services of 113/1, Mill Road, Ukulankulama, Vavuniya.
A sum of Rs.750 million was allocated towards each of these projects.
Both these Companies did not fulfill the normal requirements of Tender
At 113/1, Mill Road, Vavuniya there is no Everest Civil Engineering
Services. There is only one P.Nandana Kumaran and his wife in occupation
Similarly, the Company, D.M.K.Holdings Pvt.Ltd; has been registered
on 23 December 2005, its Directors are ShanthiKumar BishoKumar. Shanthi
Kumar Gajan Kumar and the other Director, Barakawi ShanthiKumar is the
wife of Emil Kanthan.
Tiran Alles has in his statement to the Courts described Emil Kanthan
as a member of the LTTE Intelligence Unit and a most deadly individual.
At the address of this Company there is no D.M.K.Holdings Ltd; There
is only an individual by the name of Varnasingham Subramaniam , who
knows nothing of this Co.
This Cabinet paper signed by the President facilitated the payment
of Rs. 1500 million to the fictitious Companies of Emil Kanthan bypassing
and flouting all Tender procedures and norms. So far not a single house
has been built out of these monies paid by Mahinda Rajapakse on the
Is there a Company in the Vavuniya jungles who can handle a project
of this magnitude of Rs. 700 million? Can there be a Company like this
Ukulankulama to whom the money was purported to be paid? Of course,
there can be such Companies in Colombo, Kandy and Galle-Matara
What are the qualifications Barakawi ShanthiKumar, ShanthiKumar BishoKumar
and Shanthi Kumar GajanKumar have to be awarded this project?
Every naked truth of this sordid secret Deal between the Rajapakses
and the LTTE; and the colossal payment to the Tigers is now an open
secret. Indeed ,our Parliamentarian Lakshman Kiriella has asked in so
many words , is this Thoppigala loud Circus and Tamasha
to cover up the greatest betrayal ever in the History of Sri Lanka by
the President and his Co. making a total sell-out of this country to
the LTTE ?
It is the duty of the Rajapakses Govt. to provide clear answers to
these questions .Instead, the Rajapakses are trying to sling mud at
me. Let them be warned that they cannot find an escape route from these
In those days there were many who protested against secret agreements
with LTTE. They also shouted loud that this country cannot be betrayed
to the Tigers. The JHU spearheaded this campaign. Prabakaran,
the terrorist and murderer is trying to make Ranil, the President. Ranil
is campaigning for Presidency in collaboration with Prabakaran
alleged Champika Ranawake as stated in the Lakbima Newspaper of 28th
Oct. 2005 By the reception accorded to the Tigers, Ranil has
been appointed theTiger Leader of the South of United Sri Lanka.said
Aturelye Rathana Thero as reported in the Dinamina Newspaper of 31st
The Lakbima Newspaper of 8th Sept. 2005 reported, Archaeological Scholar
Ellawala Medananda Thero as saying Ranil means, the one who is
with the LTTE, fulfilling the ambitions of the Tigers.
If by an unfortunate circumstance, Ranil becomes the President,
people have to consume poison and die in a divided Lanka Athureliya
Rathana Thero told on 29th Oct. 2006
Now Ranil is helping the Tigers. Ranil will come only after agreement
with the Tigers Champaka Ranawaka told this on 11th Oct. 2006
before the Press.
Now, it is very clear to everyone what exactly the true picture is.
Prabakaran, the murderer and LTTE Leader helped Mahinda Rajapakse to
succeed as President of Sri Lanka.
It is also crystal clear that Mahinda Rajapakse gave money to the LTTE
and he is bound by the LTTE on this agreement.
What has Champaka Ranawake got to say on this? What has Archaeological
Scholar Ellawala Thero got to say? I am asking from Hela Urumaya who
was so vociferous against the LTTE, as to why they are silent?
Sinhala Urumaya earlier gave over the party to the Sangha Ratne. Was
this action , right or wrong ?This was done at the instance of Thilak
Karunaratne and his group,.the result of this was the Party taking a
religious character.All the portfolios were given over to the Buddhist
clergy by a letter , and was accepted by the MahaSangha.
At the polls, Buddhist priests were elected to Parliament. Kolonnawa
Sri Sumangala Thero resigned from his parliamentary post, and another
member was appointed..But, what did Omalpe Sobitha Thero do? He arranged
for the withdrawal of the appointments and replaced them with Champika
Ranawake. Actually, under the terms and conditions, Sobitha Thero had
no powers to do so. In addition, Champka Ranawake has no right to take
over a property of the Temple.
I explained to the Parliament the other day that this was an absolute
robbery of Temple premises. When I questioned them, they were dumbfounded.
They could not give an answer.
Will those individuals who pillage sacred Temple land and make it their
own private property protect the Buddha Dhamma?
These Ven. Buddhist Priests came to Parliament accusing that the Politicians
and Parliamentarians are unscrupulous , breaking all laws , culture
and traditions ,and destroying the country.The village folks did not
believe them But, those in cities, came in their Benz cars shouting
Sadhu, Sadhu and voted for them.
They thought when car permits are issued; the Venerable Priests will
not accept them. But, that did not happen.
The price of the Super luxury Benz car free of duty of Archaeological
Scholar Ven Ellawala Mettananda is Rs. 35 lacs!
I am a Parliamentary member from 1977, and I was a Prime Minister. Yet,
I never got down a luxury Benz for my permit.
Similarly, Ven Sobhitha Thero not only collected the Benz car, he also
sold it .This is the story of the Ven. Clergy in Parliament. And does
not stop at that
There is a dent in the economy of this country to the tune of Rs. 100
million because of the Vehicle imports.according to Ravaya paper
Sihala Urumaya received a licence to open a radio and Television channel
from the Government to conduct a Buddhist service. According to information
received, this permit has been sold for Rs. 120 million.
What is Sihala Urumaya doing after blaming others? They are making a
total sell-out of the Buddha Sasana. They are commercializing religion.
Masquerading as protecting the Sinhala people and the country, they
are chasing after to achieve their personal agendas.
The so called Sentinels of the Buddhist faith cannot stoop to scandals
in the name of Buddhism At least the robe and the shaven head must be
respected even if they dont care for Lord Buddhas sacrosanct
There is another Company that has amalgamated with the corrupt- tyranny
nourished Rajapakse Bros. Co destroying the country.., that is this
sinful immoral Buddhist Clergy Co who in the name of Buddhism is destroying
the very roots of Buddhism
