Will fight against politics involving drug kingpins: Rajitha
Fisheries Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne today in Parliament vowed to fight against politics involving drug kingpins and underworld.
In response to some comments made against him by a private radio channel, he said that he never dares to take a tough stand against drug dealings and underworld activities. Referring to the Mulleriyawa shooting incident, he said that Bharata Lakshman Premachandra who was killed in the incident was one of his close political colleagues.
“We did politics together in the Mahajana Party at that time. We do not shy away from drug dealers and underworld leaders. One radio channel has started attacking me. I am not bothered about it at all. I have been subjected to attacks more serious than this in the past. I will not stop my journey despite such attempts. I joined the government in the national interest. Yet, some persons joined the government only to get their licenses back,” he said.

All have a common link Mr Senaratne- all have directly in indirectly linked to the governing family.
If the godfathers are not there, the country will be clean. So, the challange is to start from the top… if you are true to your words !!!
Cocaine from Colombia, Heroin from Afghanistan, while Marijuana (Ganja, Hashish) is grown in many tropical countries, like SL. No country is free from drug abuse and the resulting increase in crime and health problems. Even misuse of alcohol is a big health risk.
I was glad by the steps taken by President to totally eliminate drug and alcohol misuse in SL and even smoking, due to health risks and health cost to the country. His ‘Mathata thitha’ programme was rolled out with a big fanfare. But how effective is it today? How honest is the President in total elimination of drug and alcohol misuse? These are bigger ‘killers’ than the LTTE. The threat from these silent killers hits every home in SL. They are insidious killers. They are worse than terrorists. These killers do more damage to the economy of the country that the LTTE. Only the drug dealers get rich. But has the President, his Cabinet, his UPFA Govt woken up to this fact? These silent killers attack everyone, rich, poor, Tamil, Sinhalese, Muslim, Buddhist, Christian. No one is spared.
How serious is the President with his ‘Mathata thitha’ programme? If he is serious, he should be making an all out war on this silent killers, worse than the LTTE.
Come on Hon Sir, You rid the nation of the LTTE, is it not high time you plan an act seriously and definitively against drug and alcohol abuse? Nice sound bytes are not what we want. We need action!
As the Commander-in-Chief, please order the Defence Secretary, the entire security forces into action against the drug and alcohol menace. Let us be the first country in the world to rid the country of the most deadly terrorism of drug and alcohol abuse. Well co-ordinated operation by the entire security forces is all we need, through the length and breadth of the country. The navy to stop drugs and alcohol entering the country. Destroy their boats/ships and the network of smugglers. The ganja fields in the country to be identified, located and totally destroyed by the ground forces of police and troops, with stiff sentences to the culprits.
All men, IRRESPECTIVE OF STATUS, to be arrested and punished through the courts with stiff penalties for drug dealing. If this is carried out with equal commitment and zeal as you carried out the war on LTTE terrorists, the terrorism of drug and alcohol misuse will be stopped.
However, this is an on-going fight, just as the war on terrorism in SL is an on-going war. Let us be the first country in the world with a President who has the courage and perseverence to rid the country of the fiercest terrorism of drug and alcohol misuse.
“KIYANA DE KARANAWA, KARANA DE KIYANAWA”. This is your oft repeated slogan, dear Hon President. Let us now do it.
Now you are talking sense rather than blidly licking MR’s boots. Keep up the good work. It took common sensed bloggers like Anil to kick you up your back side to wake you up and to instil some sense into you. This goes for AUJ as well whose days seem to be numbered now for calling me undesirable names.
Nicholas always has a new spin on things. The brutal suppression of tamil and sinhala nationalism is termed “terrorism”. Nicholas has high hopes for the leader to deal with social issues. High hopes indeed.
It appears the R family is interested in 3 things; they are:
1. Ensuring survival in current term
2. Ensuring perpetuation of power
3. Accumulate private wealth.
I have always stood up against corrupt politicians with private armies of thugs and drug dealers, who are being supported by them. Perhaps they need their money and assistance during election times and to get rid of thorns on their side. This is the style of politics in India, who are even more corrupt!
‘Udu’, the diaspora Tamil (d-T), under a pseudonym Sinhala sounding name, has got it wrong when he claims my response in blog 2 is in response to Anil’s comment in blog 1. How wrong can he be! I have responded to the particular news item of Dr RS vow to fight corrupt politics involving drug org. criminals, such as MS and DS. The idiot ‘udu’, the polmudda as someone labelled him, has little upstairs. He does nothing else but ridicule and insult other bloggers. He used utter obscene language before, Total filth! Which showed his class. When challenged by me, he claimed it was a ‘fake’ Udu. What rubbish! There was no such fake. That is why he is now crying that I complained to the Administrator against his use of obscenities, which lowered the tone and standard of this website. This polmudda is an utter moron! He is totally incapable of writing a decent, sensible comment without resorting to insulting other bloggers.
I have always wondered who this PradeepS is. He has now exposed himself! He has proven in Blog 4, he is indeed a ‘diaspora Tamil’ with his ilk ‘Udu’ he oft supports. That is why even my comment in support of Dr Rajitha’s vow to fight corrupt politcos who are drug lords, is seen by him as an attack on Tamil nationalism.
I have compared ‘drug and alcohol’ problem as a form of terrorist killer, which has gripped the country. PS misconstrues it. He is such a moron! Anyway LTTE terrorism is sethapochchi. Hon President MR killed and buried it for good. PS is hurt by it! He calls it ‘brutal suppression’. This proves he is a bloody ‘diaspora Tamil’ like the other moron, Udu.
In answer to PS, I need to mention also that I am very glad we have the R family, true patriotic sons of Motherlanka from down South. So long as the R Family is there, like the 3 Musketeers, we know Motherlanka is safe from her enemies, the TNA, diaspora Tamils, LTTE rump and the evil colonialist West.
LONG MAY THE R FAMILY REIGN IN SL!
You minion, you want your grand kids/great grand kinds to lick the the corrupt Rajapaksa asses for ever? That is how intelligent you are you whimp. You are even insulting your educated kids by your stupid utterances. I am sure they do not think the same way you do.
