Galagodaaththe Gnanasara thero who broadcast sensational ideas in relation to the Muslim community during the past has expressed an idea a few days back about establishing a separate municipal council in Saindumarudu. The thero who promoted the opinion that ‘Muslims should be swept away from Sri Lanka’ sometime back now says that this act is something which should be highly appreciated. The thero who says that it is an instance of meting out justice further suggests that
a separate municipal council be provided for Kalmunai too. Following is the opinion expressed by him.
“It is good to install a separate administration to Saindamarudu. Many people have got upset and write various things in internet media across the cyber space. But the true story is that it is something that should take place. In the same way … we compel the government … Throughout 30 years our Tamil brothers were involved in a struggle demanding for a separate administration unit in Kalmunai … engaged even in fasting unto death. Likewise, similar to the justice meted out to people of Saindamarudu .. we compel the government to give an opportunity to people of Kalmunai; because though voice is thrown about by holding on to Saharan’s incident of Saindamarudu .. the true story is that it is something that definitely should happen. So what should happen .. really has happened. There is no need to be agitated. We should think about it from an administration point of view … because the country has not been divided as such, no”.
Former super batsman of the Sri Lankan cricket team, Thillekeratna Dilshan has informed that he would be contesting from Galle district in the forthcoming elections under the symbol of Pohottuwa.`
Dilshan who retired from the game of cricket has secured membership of Sri Lanka Podu JanaPeramuna in advance and even was active in promoting victory to president Gotabhaya Rajapaksa at the last presidential election.
Expressing his ideas to the media he has said that has contributed towards erecting 1000 houses in the district of Galle and to operate 5 pre-schools in Galle and also donated school equipment to school children and in maintaining 10000 families in Galle. He also added that he did all this during the last 15 years without the motive of banking on vying for the elections as such.
Dilshan has identified himself as a person who stands on this earth whether or not he goes to parliament and that he would continue with his programme of providing a service to the nation. He ends up saying that he started his career in cricket in a very small way and likewise hangs on the feeling of starting the political career too in a small way and could do something for the country.
A pathetic incident is reported from Kekulawala area in Wellawa police division where a lorry driver aged 44 years and father of two children had volunteered to transport to hospital a woman and her daughter injured by chasing a buffalo while working in a betel plot of land.
It is one P.A. Priyantha Ruwan Kumara, a father of two living in Kekulawela who has lost his life in this manner. It was revealed from police investigations that the mother and daughter concerned have run into an abandoned house nearby to escape being attacked by the buffalo and had closed the door when the buffalo has attacked the door of that house. When neighbours had tried to take the injured mother and daughter to hospital and the driver who came in the small lorry to transport the two of them were attacked by this buffalo, police say. In the instance when the driver had gone to chase the buffalo towards the Deduru Oya reservoir, though neighbours had managed to put the mother and daughter to the lorry, but as the driver had not come back, it was found that he too was subjected to the attack of the buffalo and was observed having collapsed in the middle of the plot of betel. Subsequently all three of them were hospitalised, police say.
Hospital sources say that even when the driver who faced the attack from the buffalo was admitted to Kurunegala general hospital .. he had breathed his last while the mother and daughter who themselves were attacked are under treatment at the hospital.
It is learned that the buffalo’s owner in fact has no scientific knowledge or experience about rearing animals as such. This particular buffalo had on previous occasions attacked several persons and in one such instance a person ended up with a broken hand. This young buffalo which happened to live a solitary life as a pet in the house has never had the opportunity of living together in a herd with other buffalos. It was also revealed that it had broken away from the rope which it was tied to and on a number of instances had strayed around creating fright among villagers and that even children had not gone to school and had been in hiding. The buffalo was more amenable to the deceased and on most occasions it had broken away from the rope .. if the owner was not available, it was the deceased who had tied it up, the villagers had told police. When this buffalo was born, the ox (female) had died at the time the owner had roped the cattle and was away on a long journey. In the process five heads of cattle who had been without food and water have died as a result and the ox referred to had delivered the cub before her death.
The owner of this cattle had come one day and kept the cub inside his house and had reared it by feeding it with types of powdered milk and thus the owner has thereafter lived with great affection as his intimate pet, it was revealed. Wellawa police are conducting inquiries on this incident.
Uvindu Wijeweera, son of pioneer of Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna has expressed ideas giving clues about his future political journey. In this instance he criticises the JVP while critics say that Uvindu would in future enter politics and thus represent Pohottuwa.
Uvindu Wijeweera at present is following a degree in the field of political science and international relationships. He is on a short holiday in Sri Lanka and has expressed ideas to the media about coming into politics. On that occasion he has mentioned ideas that he is not satisfied with Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna and said that it is the core that broke off from the JVP as frontline socialists. In the same way Uvindu said that he does not identify himself as a Marxist and that he holds to the belief that this country is a Buddhist country and that the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna also should understand that.
He went on to say that he is forever ready to come forward on behalf of his country by standing on a Sinhala Buddhist footing. He then said that the JVP should change according to times and that it should happen in a positive manner. He also said that the public are not in much favour with the alliances JVP mediated in. He in many instances said that people should be ready for a forward journey with state leadership. Minister Wimal Weeravansha on a number of occasions drew the attention of the House in parliament in solving issues faced by Uvindu Wijeweera and that family. Uvindu has made statements to Derana and Hiru channels only. Through such a process it is the opinion of political critics that clues are available to say that he would join hands with president Gotabhaya Rajapaksa.
Member of parliament, Prasanna Ranaweera who was subjected to disrepute because of aggressive behaviour was made to join in prime minister’s Indian tour with humorous matters being exchanged within the social media. Mp Prasanna Ranaweera has taken steps to respond to these byaddressing a radio channel.
During that address Mp Prasanna Ranaweera has informed that he was invited for that tour for the reason that he was one of the most trusted persons of prime minister Mahinda Rajapaksa and that he was so taken on the tour to motivate Indian prime minister Modi to grant a housing project and that after the discussion with him, premier Modi consented to it.
He further says, “Rising from the bottom level and when practical people take us to the top .. we are attacked. But then persons dressed in tie and coat are taken … then it is okay. Doesn’t matter .. no problem .. that’s the way people see us, no. I witnessed a special welcome afforded to prime minister never seen below .. in every province in India. We brought forward a proposal to him. That is to provide a housing system to Kelaniya which is a populated area. He consented to it. I and the two Mps were taken and apart from that only the most necessary persons were taken on this tour. I came into this delegation because I represent Kelaniya which in fact is very clearly a city that is congested and is close to Colombo. On the occasion that prime minister came to Kiribathgoda and in the very first rally he said that a housing project would be introduced to Kelaniya. I must very clearly state that it was for a discussion in relation to that subject that I was taken to India. Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa took only a selected crowd of faithful persons only. He has great faith on me.
