Was only Rajapaksas’ responsible for the arrest of Shani Abeysekara ?

By Wishwamithra Deshabandu

(Lanka-e-News- 03.Aug.2020, 11.00PM) The entire good governance is fully responsible for the arrest and imprisonment of Shani Abeysekera by the Rajapaksa regime, which has begun its vicious cycle of revenge and witch hunt.

In particular, Ranil Wickremesinghe and Sajith Premadasa are equally responsible. Also the ministers in charge of law and order and as well as the ministers in charge of judiciary are fully responsible.

Ranil Wickremesinghe can no longer wear his professional suit and contest an election while Sajith can no longer wear his peon suit and contest for elections.

This writer explained the actions of the failed leader Ranil Wickremesinghe in an earlier article. The matter related to Shani Abeysekera should be stated briefly and turned to Sajith Premadasa.

The people of the country, regardless of party affiliation, gave a mandate to Sirisena-Wickramasinghe government with great confidence for only one major reason. That is, to reinstate and strengthen the rule of law, which was ravaged by the brutal, inhuman and corrupt rule of the Rajapaksa brothers. What is happening now was happening then. That is to say, what was in force then was not the law in the law book of justice and fairness. "I am the law" The Rajapaksas acted with that in mind.

Let us keep all murders happened from 2007 – 2014 aside. It was under “I am the law” the then  Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayake, was expelled overnight by filing an impeachment motion on baseless allegations. In addition it was with the same law the former army general Sarath Fonseka, who led the war was arrested and insulted by removing his medals.

What did Ranil do ?

What the people wanted is to uphold the rule of law and dispense justice for crimes what happened during the Rajapaksa era.

Ranil Wickramasinghe did all others but that

That program started in the early days. Accordingly Shani Abeysekara was appointed to conduct all investigations. He is a very honest and an efficient officer. He is also a brilliant detective in the truest sense of the word. A citizen who is not indebted to the country but the entire nation and the people is indebted to him. In another country he would be an award winning citizen who fulfilled his duty for his country.

But, did the so called good governance fulfill its duty? Did the good governance bring the perpetrators to justice? Although it was a priority for the people, it was not a priority for Ranil WIckramasinghe. He did not think about the fate of law abiding honest citizens and the officials of the good governance if the corrupt illegitimate Rajapaksas returns to power.

Ranil did not care about such officials because Ranil knows that no matter how much the Rajapaksas kill, they will not harm him because he followed the vile policy of "I will scratch your back and you scratch mine”

Minister of Justice Wijedasa Rajapaksa as well as minister in charge of law, order and police Sagala Ratnayake appointed by Ranil Wickramasinghe too are responsible for this current situation.  It has now been proven that Wijedasa Rajapaksa is a puppet sent by Mahinda Rajapaksas to sabotage the good governance. Sagala who was residing at the temple trees around the clock was skin and bone with Mahinda Rajapaksas and his ally. People should realize the degree of betrayal donne to the peoples’ mandate. Now it is these law-abiding, competent officials who are paying the price.

We ask Ranil, do you have a conscience?

We ask: Ranil, do you have a conscience? How can you jeopardize the aspirations of those law abiding officials and have the rights to contest and seek another mandate from people?

If not you should have honestly fought for the law abiding officers. If not you should refrain deceiving people further and leave politics. The only way to prevent the country from becoming an illegitimate state of the Rajapaksas again is to get rid of clumsy leaders like you who are devious and deceive the country and its people, who are ungrateful to the people who put you in power, and betray their legitimate demands.

What did Sajith do ?

From the day he defiled Sirikotha, the UNP's headquarters, he had only one hope. That is to chase Ranil Wickramasinghe and to grab the leadership. The prospect of coming to leadership is not a mistake but for that he should strengthened his party. Instead of showing united action, he only slapped Ranil Wickremesinghe.

There is a person who helped him with his commitment. That is, Kili Maharaja who has a feud with Ranil Wickremesinghe. During this vile leadership journey Sajith became a lapdog of Kili Maharajah. He became the "handmaiden" of Kili Maharaja, who caused chaos in the UNP. The door to Maharaja's cesspit on Sirasa was opened not only to Sajith and the UNP politicians who fueled kerosene to the firewood.

When Sirasa attacked Ranil, Sajith helped and fueled it. The latter did not even have the intelligence to realize that the party would be destroyed when the leadership was attacked, and that confidence in the party would be shattered. Sajith, who dreamed of becoming the President and the party leader, when he was in the opposition never stood for any important or decisive issues of the country, He did not waste a drop of his saliva against murders, rapes and abductions. At least he did not represent his party.

Even after the formation of the good governance neither Sajith pulled the party or pushed the party and its forces to be united for the purposes and aspirations of the people. At the very least, he did not act to strengthen the UNP or its leadership for those objectives. If he had to fight with the leader, he would have fought for the people's agenda. But he failed to cater to the peoples agenda for the leadership and the presidency dream.

Within the good governance Sajith did not act for peoples agenda but on the agenda of the Maharaja cesspit of Sirasa, who damaged Sri Lanka culturally in the past. Kili Maharaja who did nothing to form the good governance became friendly with Sirisena and turned the President's House into a branch of Sirasa. Sajith made Shiral Lakthilaka the latter who abducted Sirikotha, a priest of Sirisena to attack Ranil Wickremesinghe.

President’s press was filled with Sirasa cesspit. Shiral Lakthilake became an obedient disciple of Sajith. All leaders including Ven Maduluwawe Sobitha who helped to create the 2015 revolution knew that Shiral Lakthilake was not a medical scholar but an evil narrow minded crook.

From then on, what the Maharaja and Sajith did was to sabotage all the measures taken by the good governance through Shiral Lakthilaka. There is no need to waste time writing that in detail.

Sajith Premadasa was also on the conspirators' side during the 52-day Gamarala-Rajapakse coup. It is certain that he would have taken the premiership from Sirisena if not the strong pressure exerted by the people against the conspiracy and in favor of the Constitution.

His devious role played a powerful part in the gradual weakening, disrupt and the defeat of good governance.

What did Sajith’s group do?

Several people who are now with Sajith are also responsible for this. Thalatha Athukorala who was appointed by President Sirisena as the Minister of Justice also played her part well for the Sirisena-Premadasa-Maharaja faction. She did nothing constructive but procrastinating. Ranjith Madduma Bandara, now Sajith Premadasa's party general secretary and the minister for police law and order following the 52 day coup, is also largely responsible for this great injustice.

Law abiding officials like Shani Abeysekera and citizens have to pay compensation today due to this betrayal committed by Sajith Premadasa and others. As a result of this betrayal, the criminals who should have been imprisoned are being taken to the royal palace and the officers who deserve the honor of the nation are being taken to gallows.

Sajith Premadasa's 'Samagi Jana Balawegaya' has issued a statement against the injustice done to Shani Abeysekera. Ironically, it was signed by the same  Ranjith Madduma Bandara, who neglected his duties as the Minister of Police, law and order.

However, we welcome the announcement made by the Samagi Jana Balawegaya. At least the parties have fulfilled its duty but how can a party that wants to rule the country can remain silent by issuing only a statement?

Therefore, if this statement is true, if the aim of the party is pure, if it is honest, we will make a strong challenge to the Sajith-Ranjith Madduma Bandara-Thalatha group.

Sajith should unite all parties and lobby them to the streets against this illegal and inhumane act! Challenge the Rajapaksa wave of crime that is gradually, subtly, 'creatively' evolving! Follow the example of R. Premadasa who did not work hypocritically but acted wisely and fearlessly on behalf of the party and for the people.

Cowardly leaders are not even worth to lead a death society. Leaders who are the scapegoats of crooked businessmen and politicians cannot serve the country except the leaders who stand up for the people and lead the nation for the protection of law abiding citizens.

Political parties and leaders who simply issue a statement and remain silent when persecuting law abiding citizens and officials, as well as those who betray the people, are traitors for their own purposes, not real leaders. They are not even fit to be in opposition.
