Was the people's struggle betrayed?

Sources say that Ranil Wickramasinghe has cut a deal with Mahinda Rajapaksha early morning on January 09th for a 'peaceful transition.'

It is the government not taking action against Mahinda regime's corruptions and the opposition United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA) guaranteeing parliamentary majority support to Ranil in return.

It is true that the parliamentary majority support is a must for the 100 day programme. But, should it be at such great cost? You are paying with people's interests of punishing the corrupt politicians so as such malpractices may not recur in future.

President Maithreepala and Chandrika must work to muster support of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) instead of this kind of deals.

Meanwhile, there is plan to appoint Mahinda as MP to replace Malini Fonseka. The next step is appointing him as Prime Minister to upset the government.

We said earlier that Ranil is having a dinner party with table manners with a savage and end up in the stomach of the latter.

While the new President addresses the nation in Kandy, Mahinda has organized a massive meeting in his fortress in Madamulana. They are planning to come to streets in Colombo against the new government in the coming weeks.

There must not be such deals in the struggle for democracy and freedom. The corrupt politicians must be brought into book. Nobody has right to hide 'files'.

People must take to street to press the government to do this.

We defeated Mahinda but Maithree pissed Somarathna on us

We defeated Mahinda. 'We' means social media here. It was one of the major factors of his defeat although none of the present government has identified it and thanked us. It was hard work, lots of bytes and biting.

There are so many other 'we's in almost all the households of the island who can claim for Maithree's victory. So many people took the pain of converting people and keeping up their morale. It was not easy.

We elected Maithreepala Sirisena as President. He said he would not contest again. Thanks. He does not want to show up too much. Do your job and retire. We are ahead of the 100 day programme.

But I have serious doubts of the good governance now. Somarathna Disanayaka has been appointed as the Chairman of national television. Why not Dharmasiri Bandaranayaka or Prasanna Vithanage? No. They will not beg for positions. Somarathna and his likes know too well to appease the bigwigs. They know how to kneel down and beg. Nothing to do dear. There must be somebody to chair the national television. There are better names like Ganganath  but I think they are vying for better positions. Let them go.

Rupavahini has lot of problems. They don't have scheduled programmes to telecast, for instance, as one employee told us. Winning back the viewers is another challenge.

The government must understand this. Don't frustrate your campaigners in social media and in every household. They will make you cry soon. Remember, there is a general election coming ahead.

We will safeguard the victory to the extent you keep up with your promises. One said Somarathna is shit on the white swan. Somarathna was one of the hate mongers against the progressive artistes of this country.

We will not allow the dictator to re-emerge but your fate is in your hand. Govern good as you promised but it is not sufficient.

If you do not bring the corrupt ex-leaders to book, you will have to repent.
