This is good news. Thanks for going. And stay out. Don’t play dirty politics ever!
Good! But only after it happened! His mind may change before March.
Perhaps Mr. Rajapakshe should seek employment with Gabriela Knaul, U.N. Special Rapporteur. She’ll be delighted.
This is good example set someone like W.R. It’s not only him to sai that dirty game be were Mr. dias there are more people you have to bring your cotagory of dirty without side & colour.
It is not strange that this person is chickening out of a tight spot. He is as slippery as an eel. He is a coward. He is a politician. He is a henchman of the eternally “fence sitting” wimpy leader the UNP. Members of professional associations should be extremely picky about electing leaders for their organisations. The leaders must be strong professionals preferably sinhala speaking citizens with proven Buddhist background.
My personal opinion is that, it is not good for Sri Lanka if you talk only of Sinhala citizens, with Buddhist backgrounds. I am sure we Sri Lankans can live in harmony, if a Tamil or a Muslim deserves a high post why not give it to her/him. You cannot always say, all Tamils are LTTE supporters. Give them a chance to prove themselves and remember only unity can save Sri Lanka.
“The leaders must be strong professionals preferably Sinhala speaking citizens with proven Buddhist background.”
Yes I agree with you Jayaraj , but with a small print.
It is xxxxxks to say only Sinhalese Buddhists should be leaders. It should be based on the skills and dedication rather than the religion and ethnicity.
But given that during the LTTE mayhem and after that in the face of insult SL campaign being run by the Tamil diaspora and colonialists overseas, the Tamil community in SL have observed deafening silence, thay have to do something to convince the Sinhalese and Muslims in SL, Tamils are together with them in a single country where people can live in area in the country, working together – rather than going after colonialists asking to re-create a kingdom said to have existed some hundreds of years ago.
I agree with Jeyaraj with reservation. It is only a minority who is nationalist Tamil. However, they can be manipulated by the minority to work in nationalist interests, if given top positions in politcs and govt jobs.
I detest the fact that Colombo is filled with Muslim and Tamil ‘refugees’ brought in by such individuals who have been manipulated with bribes and pressure. These ‘minorities’ now form the majority in Colombo, the Capital. These ‘refugees’ should be sent back to the North or East where they rightly belong as the LTTE menace has now been liquidated.
