JVP refuses to buy President Sirisena’s story
President Maithripala Sirisena’s claim that he was opposed to giving nominations to former President Mahinda Rajapaksa to contest upcoming polls is not acceptable, the JVP says.
JVP propaganda Secretary former MP Vijitha Herath addressing a public rally at Yakkala, Gampaha said yesterday (15): “After everything has happened the President appears on TV claiming he did not want to give nominations to Rajapaksa. We are sure the people of this country will not accept what he says ever again. He has made a bad mistake. It is too late for him to correct what he did.”
Commenting on President Sirisena’s special statement the previous day, former MP Herath said that there had been three meetings between the incumbent and former President on matters pertaining to the upcoming polls. “President Sirisena in his address did not mention a single word about their third meeting. It was at this third meeting President Sirisena endorsed the former President’s candidacy, according to a statement released by UPFA General Secretary. President Sirisena could have come up and countered that statement then. But, he did not do so. He has hidden the truth from people and this is a serious matter,” Herath said.
Herath said that UPFA had rejected giving nominations to former MP Sarana Gunawardena from Gampaha but instead approved the nominations for Gunawardena’s wife. “The UPFA has rejected the husband and given nominations to the wife. Their move is to cheat people. The UPFA promised not to give nominations to ethanol businessmen, heroin dealers, fraudsters and casino owners. But take a look at their list. It is full of all sorts of thieves in their hundreds,” Herath added.

By looking at the hysteria spreading among him and the others makers of jahapalanaya, neither most of those voters who believed his stories on the 8th of January.
Mr Herath, you talk about thieves being nominated. Remember Robin Hood also was a thief, but he helped the poor.
Maithree suffers from delusion he is nothing but a cutout president.
In the wake of his inauguration he rode high to be invited by Mr Modi and then by Xi Jinping Kerry and then be blessed by the Pope he was euphoric he was the liberator and the left, right accepted him as a hero and his decisions went unchallenged until people that mattered lost confidence in him began to question his authority finally raise a vote of no confidence in his prime minister. He was then forced to dissolve parliament to avoid the embarrassment for had the motion been carried meant no confidence in him.
Sirisena did he actually leave the SLFP to run for the presidency? Obviously he was not the SLFP nominee for the presidency. Soon after he was inaugurated he usurped to lead the SLFP for MR was the incumbent and he graciously renounced the leadership! However he failed to establish his authority over the party because his conflicting interests due to his obligations to the UNP, the Tamils and the muslims. Eventually the situation became critical with the proposed no confidence motion against the PM and in avoid the embarrassment he moved to dissolve parliament.
The SLFP bureaucracy forced Sirisena to support MR’s candidature however he will back him to lead the house in the event SLFP mustered a working majority which is unconstitutional
Your revered leader Rohana Wijeweera never advocated to BUY any of your requirements from anywhere. His lesson was to break open the storehouse even to the extent of killing its owner to appease your thirst. Why talk of buying from Mr. Sirisena ? Perhaps he is not selling it to you either.
