On The Road To Ruination

By Zulkifli Nazim

Our Beloved country, Sri Lanka is being destroyed, ruined and bungled up by partisan politics - hyper-partisanship to the point where it becomes so recalcitrant and impenetrable and inflexible that no compromise is possible. Greedy Politicians who are involved in making this mess, as you can see, are stubbornly resistant to authority and control; and the president does nothing to take any form of action to penalize or impose a penalty on all those who despoil, destroy and strip off decency of its possession.

To add fuel to fire, President Maithripala Sirisena, is inviting all those despots to join him to achieve greater success.

And moreover, the supposedly Justice system which will have no political influence according to the President- where The High Court issues an order to allow Wimal Weerawansa to attend Parliament and to participate in the parliamentary working committee. A man who has three Birth Certificates, three Passports, misusing 40 Government vehicles and various other accusations, whose actions tantamount to treason, is being granted freedom to attend parliament.

What is that he can contribute to the development and progress of our nation? What does this action by our justice system prove? inviting all despots and rattlesnakes to join the President for the progress of this country.?”

It would indeed be wise for our President to use some advise from the then President of the United States of America Franklin D. Roosevelt when he said, with regard to Hitler the fascist :

“But when you see a rattlesnake poised to strike, you do not wait until he has struck before you crush him.”

It is imperative that all those who are under suspicion, investigation and those who have been jailed or remanded be strictly prohibited from attending the august legislative body – That is the general opinion of decent people of this country, for the greater good.

What do we see today in the political arena is nothing but slogans and battle cries to say that we have to form a joint opposition to defeat other political parties - Meaning they have no interest in joining for the development and progress of the country. Their main aim is to propagate the defeat of another political party.

It looks like there is encouragement all-round – the joint opposition together with the supporters of the President in the government, an evil conspiracy, to achieve their purpose successfully

All those whose who are vulgarizing disinformation, including members of his cabinet, are intentionally diffusing false and inaccurate information to spread deliberately. It is an act of deception and false statements to convince untruths - vis-à-vis when the President announces that he supports the change of the constitution, a cabinet minister says that they will not. This is airing willful ignorance.

It's a kind of vulgar indecency that embodies arrogance, narcissism, rigidity, narrow-mindedness, xenophobia and fear that is already expressing itself in the form of violence, and perhaps an unearned sense of entitlement, just a few expressions to describe the psyche of those who were under a kakistocracy – the word which is used to describe a government in which the worst persons were in power.

We would ask the President : “What happened to the pledge he made on the revered remains of the Most Venerable Maduluwawe Sobitha Thero, the chief incumbent of the Kotte Naga Maha Vihara and Convenor and Chairperson of the National Movement for a Just Society in Sri Lanka?”

It is encouraging to note that the ITN has discussions with a panel of highly educated and wonderful scholars like, the most Ven. Dambara Amila Thero, Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences, University of Sri Jayewardenepura, Gamini Veyangoda, together with Sarath Wijesooriya, Saman Ratnayake, Janaranjan who are totally dedicated to stand-up for and behalf of the 6.2 Million People who brought about this change urged, advocated and encouraged by the Most Venerable Sobitha Thero, for they are the voice of those who brought this change in the name of Justice.

Our President should well remember that these voices cannot be ignored.
