-National list M.P. cannot become ‘independent’ –should resign first !
(Lanka-e-News -19.Jan.2017, 1.30AM) When someone is appointed as a member of parliament through the national list on the wishes of a party leader sans the wishes of the people , and when that individual does not concur with that party’s views , he cannot describe his move as ‘becoming independent’ . On the contrary what that individual should do in such circumstances is bow to the wishes of the people , and resign first .
Ven. Rathane Athureliya Thera instead of doing that honorably ,convened a media briefing on last 17th, after having conspired for several months with the ex defense secretary Gotabaya the notorious murderer under the last regime . At the meeting he said , he is going to be an ‘independent ‘ in parliament . Based on reports reaching Lanka e news inside information division , this move is an outcome of this conspiracy hatched by Rathane and Gotabaya jointly. The secret discussions between Rathane Thera and Gotabaya were revealed earlier on by Lanka e news and certain media groups , and that when the final decision was taken , Asoka Abeygunawardena too participated.
By now , the JHU which Rathane Thera represented for some time had expelled him or he has left the party.
The reason for Rathane Thera to get close to Gotabaya is the result of his relations turning sour with with President Maithripala .Rathane Thera who curried favor with the Miathripala no sooner than the latter became the president got several of his unsuitable misfits appointed to government posts .Among such appointments were the notorious Maithri Gunaratne as the chairman of the Coal Co. , and another was Somaratne Dissanayake a Film Director as the chairman of the National Rupavahini television channel. Dissanayake later tendered his resignation.
Rathane Thera who ingratiated himself into the favor of the president , and tried to show he was behind the curtain of the president and he is involved in latter’s affairs realized that he cannot be successful in that direction only when the president appointed a knowledgeable agriculture specialist as the head of the National campaign ‘ a country free from poison and pollution’ without appointing Rathane Thera to that post. Though several appointments made by president Maithripala turned into failures , in this instance the appointment of the agriculture specialist proved successful, perhaps because Rathane Thera’s stupid proposals were unrealistic , Utopian and only imaginative.
This was well illustrated when Rathane Thera made a proposal during the poison and pollution free campaign that all the organic manure that is being used in the country shall be halted , and that shall be replaced by compost manure .The agriculture expert appointed by the president however said , if that is introduced , in five years , the country’s agriculture yield will drop by 75 % and asked whether Rathane Thera would accept that responsibility ? The specialist also elaborated , the use of superior organic manure mixed with compost manure is the only method , and the extreme method suggested by Rathane Thera will destroy the country’s agriculture yield .
Rathane Thera was allotted only a small room by the presidential secretariat for the poison free country campaign . This was a cause of deep disappointment to Rathane . The latter who visited the office for some days finally did the vanishing trick when he knew his selfish aims cannot be accomplished.
Sadly , during the period Rathane was with the president , all what happened was, president lost his grace and repute. To everybody’s consternation , If there was anybody who took the president to distribute prizes in respect of a Montessori class function , that was none other than Rathane .When the president was taken to distribute prizes to children of a Montessori run by Rathane’s mistress, it came in for heavy flak from all quarters.
Rathane is well noted for exploitation at others’ expense and deriving maximum self centered benefits throughout the nefarious decade from the Rajapakse regime after currying favor with the Rajapakses. He converted his Temple into a Castle (running counter to true Buddhist precepts) with the blessings of the Rajapakses while the people outside were in dire poverty , and hard put to have one square meal a day. . Whither true Buddhism preached by Lord Buddha ?
He took over lands for free which were worth millions with the blessings of the Rajapakses . At that time when the group led by Harin Fernando showed beyond doubt that the opposition is going to win , the Athureliya Rathanes the political opportunists and renegades at the last moment somersaulted to the opposition not for the love of the country or the government of good governance with sincere motives but to serve their own selfish self serving aims and agendas.
This was confirmed best by Rathane’s announcement at yesterday’s media briefing , when he gave out the latest signals that he is going to be a pawn of criminal and cruel Gotabaya.
‘A constitution draft bill is being prepared that is pernicious to the country’s sovereignty . This is in breach of the policies preached by the president. Therefore this constitution cannot be supported under any circumstances, and the draft bill has been prepared by a group that is lending support to division ’ Rathane the accomplished liar and turncoat said , in his characteristic mendacious style savoring of unalloyed self seeking political opportunism.
This misleading revelation of Rathane despite being a monk was a complete distortion of the true picture so much so that he even insulted the Saffron robe he was wearing by his brazen and blatant falsehoods. It is an unassailable fact that the people’s mandate at the election victories on 2015-01-08 and 2016 -08-17 was for a new constitution to provide a political solution to the Tamil people in order to avert another ethnic war. Now ,it is only after the entire parliament and the constitutional committee having met in this regard , a draft bill was prepared.
There are a number of representatives of the opposition as chairpersons in the main sub committees which are preparing the proposals. The proposal now brought forward was passed on a majority of a single vote. It has already been announced that via the proposed new constitution the government is giving the assurance of a sovereign state .In addition , TNA leader Sambanthan had also stated he is not objecting to giving Buddhism the prime place in the constitution . it is therefore a crucial question at whose instigation Rathane Thera the villainous monk is making these mendacious utterances wearing the sacred robe?
His statement that a constitutional draft bill has been prepared by now is a lie, and that it is against the policies of the president, too is untrue. By the way who is Rathane to talk about president’s policies is a pertinent question ?
Rathane saying he is resigning the M.P. post granted to him by the president via the national list in order to become an ‘independent’ because the president has gone against his policies is the biggest joke of the century.
Rathane told yet another lie when he disclosed , the constitutional draft is being prepared by a group that is supporting division .If the bill that is being prepared with the participation of the entire parliament is to create a division according to Rathane , then all the members of the present parliament are supporting division , is what he means .
It is certain the blood pressure of Rathane must have shot up and his pendulum also must have stopped swinging owing to the absolute falsehoods and stupid statements he is uttering while wearing the saffron robe. It is very evident Rathane is blabbering and bluffing solely and wholly because of his secret discussions he had with Gotabaya Rajapakse the notorious murderer . He is now aligned with Gotabaya in order to serve the treacherous and traitorous agendas of the maniacal murderous villain the country has ever known and who has sleepless nights whenever the country is progressing towards peace and prosperity.
Athureliya Thera in whom racism is inborn , somersaulted from the JVP to the JHU first . This somersault Sultan who again pole vaulted from the JHU is now saying he is independent , and going to form a National force.
No matter what acrobatics he performs , what strip tease he does in public , what disgrace he brings upon himself and the sacred saffron robe , what national force he forms , before all that he has an onerous duty – he must first and foremost resign from the national list M.P . if he has an iota of shame in him, and bow to the people’s wishes.
Poor Rathane apparently hasn’t even the horse sense to understand that robed monks who were obsessed with selfish self seeking and opportunistic politics could not form even a latrine force , let alone a national force . The case in point to illustrate this is that of infamous Galagoda Aththe Gnanassara . The latter when he contested elections , he could poll only less than a thousand votes even after exposing to the public his all to demonstrate what a great robed rowdy he is.
Such opportunistic robed monks can do only one thing well , that is , they stoop for various nefarious reasons not excluding doing the sordid biddings of scoundrels like Gotabaya the notorious murderer . But before that we can say for sure Gotabaya is going to jail. On that day , Athureliya who is today profusely lying, is definitely going to strip himself nude shamelessly and scream uttering all the lies his lie factory churns out. That will be the day the public will be able to witness the naked lies of a nude shameless political animal who disgraced Buddhism wearing the sacred robe to parade as a human .

Rathane Thera recently sold his car permit and made a profit of Rs 40 m thanks to his national list MP status. Hope he will refund the money to the govt.

He should not only refund the profit made on a duty free car, but also resign his seat as he was not elected by voters.
