(Lanka e News – 24.July.2018, 8.00PM) President Maithripala Sirisena who dishonored all the election promises , betrayed the voters who installed him in power by turning his back on them within as short as 48 hours after being elected , and now precariously clinging on to a 4 % popularity base after having earned the inglorious distinction as the most incompetent incapable leader the country ever had, is again moving heaven and earth to stifle and suppress the media which are exposing the truth and critical of him.
The president addressing the Randiyawara Rendawum maiden ceremony yesterday (23) spoke thus :
‘I wish to tell the media Institutions which are today obstructing us and not giving due publicity to our programs, please do not deprive yourself of the democracy , freedom and the media freedom which you have been granted, only to once again be in tears after attacking us , weakening us , destroying us and dragging us down .’
It is to be noted already four media websites including Lanka e News have been unlawfully banned in the country. Because a program was conducted by TNL channel which contradicted the mendacious statements one by one of the president , parts of the transmission center of the TNL were forcibly removed by Pallewatte Gamarala thereby tarnishing the image of good governance which he promised to establish during the last presidential elections, meaning that president Gamarala has already completed his media suppression mission.
It is a pity this is a moronic president who thinks media freedom is something that he can pick from his pocket and distribute .
On 2015-01-08 , the masses won the media freedom after sacrificing lives of editors and journalists , losing their dear ones through disappearances, falling victims to assaults and arson. Therefore that freedom was not acquired in the way this nincompoop of a president assumes . It was not freedom which dropped from the pocket of a political imbecile like Gamarala or through his pick pocketing another.
Shockingly it is the moronic Gamarala who promised good governance and media freedom to the people with the motive to win the presidential elections who is now full of venom and vengeance against the media which criticizes his lop sided policies and cranky conduct which have plunged the country into irretrievable doom and gloom. Believe it or not ! he is so vindictive that he has ordered the foreign ministry to get down 14 individuals employed in the foreign service simply because they made adverse comments against Gamarala via the internet .
Already , two employees who worked as clerks in the foreign missions of Canada and Poland have returned. Gamarala is so abysmally ignorant that he does not even know , state employees such as clerks of the lower grades have the freedom to express their views and speak on politics. Yet this spineless cowardly ruler had got scared of them and via today’s announcement betrayed his inordinate fears – unable to face constructive criticisms .
This is clearly a direct threat made to the independent mass media . Hence , all must rise against this chicken –hearted dim witted ruler unconditionally before it is too late.
