CBK takes JO to task

Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa has been conspiring to break up the government and cause division between the President and Prime Minister for the last three years, former President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga said.

The group of 16 SLFP Parliamentarians who voted in favour of the No Confidence Motion (NCM) was part of that conspiracy launched by Rajapaksa’s agents, Kumaratunga said.

Attending a New Year festival held in Attanagalla on April 21, she said the SLFP had still not discussed the 20th Amendment to the contribution relating to the abolition of the Executive Presidency. “This had to be decided in Parliament,” she said.

“The names of other SLFP Parliamentarians crossing over to the Opposition in addition to the 16 members should be asked from Dilan Perera,” Kumaratunga said.

She said Dilan Perera was a person who did not obtain a people’s mandate, but entered Parliament from the National List even during her time after much begging.

“Today, he is dancing to the tune of outsiders after entering Parliament on the National List. It was an irony to see Dilan Perera who almost worshipped her by proclaiming her as the best politician in the world, is now dubbing her as an expired packet of noodles. The whole world could be turned topsy turvy if 10 such persons dubbed as expired packets of noodles teamed up,” the former President said.

Former President Kumaratunga said as for her, she would always punish fraudsters. But, she could not talk about others.

“The Yahapalana Government would last its full term without a hitch despite the cross over of 16 MPs,” she said.

According to Kumaratunga’s information, there was no move by UNP backbenchers to bring an impeachment motion against the President.

“The President had done no wrong to face such a scenario. The President was too good and lenient,” former President Kumaratunga said.

She is right in certain way. Once he decided to contest as an MP his past achievement is not there. Instead of an advisor he become a critic of the party or a group. Ie MR

CBK has nothing to talk about Country or Governance as she destroyed The Armed forces during her tenure and went begging to India to save the 40,000 thousand armed personal in the Jaffna Peninsula by sea in the face of LTTE ASSAULT and destroyed the two of the biggest camps in Mullativu and Elephant Pass during her governence. Once she told that Sinhalese Buddhist fabrication of Sri Lanka must be destroyed and I am of the view that today she was talking about Yahapalana not from the mouth and may be from some other opening. It is the duty of the politicaians to destablise or destroy the so called Yahapalana for the long term benefit of the country and its people and His Excellency Mahinda Rajapakse and the JO IS DOING the historical work in that respect. The best thing happened in the NCM is that they lost the 2/3 rd majority. In case if it is required, JO and SLPP must bring people to the street to force the Yahapalana government to stop all policies bane to Sri Lanka including Constitutional reforms, Taking Armed forces to unhcr organised arbitration in the retext of missing person and threatening action to Buddhism as the foremost Religion in the country, and all economic policies distabilizing the lives of the masses of Sri Lanka.

Everyone waiting domething good may harp pen to the nation. Past not cheerful or pleasant mostly evil. Present static who does what how and which direction it is going no one seem to know. Promises made nothing progressing right direction. Is it mentality of the doviety or the politicians. Bright minds must be there. Character moral must be seeping thru everywhere still people attacking different segments of the populations. What a pity. Teaching of Buddha not reached the minds of many

How and why. The concept thinking of fabrication by the members of any society brings a sad gloomy picture in the soul of the society. Society must reflect a natural garden diversity collective spirit lot of help kindness flowing stream not fixed rigid self centered society even violating the teaching of Buddha. Somewhere re mentality is gone wrong
