In May 2022, a picture of Mahinda Kahandagama, who was beaten and lying in his underwear on the road, went viral on social media. Later, the government of Gota arrested him. Following that, Ranil became Prime Minister. Ranil became Prime Minister on May 18 and delivered a powerful speech in Parliament. This is the story.
I am not satisfied with the investigation of the gangs that attacked Galumuwadora. I called the Inspector General and told him. He said that he was acting according to the orders of the Attorney General. I told him to report to Parliament about these investigations. I not only condemn this attack. Legal action will be taken against them…’
18 May 2022
Ranil was then elected president. All those arrested by Gota, as well as those who attacked the Gall face struggle, were released. Among the released was Mahinda Kahandagam. Mahinda Kahandagama remained silent after that. He is now back on the scene. He runs for the Colombo Municipal Council as a candidate of the United National Party. Pohottuwa is running for Colombo Municipal Council under the U.N.P. Elephant banner. Pohottuwa party boss Basil Rajapakse wanted his people to run under the UNP banner and gave Ranil a list of pohottuwa candidates. Mahinda Kahandagama is one of the leading candidates on Ranil’s list of Pohottu candidates.
Ranil came to hold accountable those who suppressed the struggle and to bring to light the hidden Rajapaksa and their minions. ‘Do you want more salt and vinegar?’ on this.
Don’t want. The accident Kahandagama faced was a terrible accident. It is impossible to think that someone who has faced such an accident will come back to politics and even look at Madamulana. But Kahandagama has gained strength from the chance given by Ranil. He is a candidate in the small vote today. Although he is a candidate in the small polls, he has not even put up a poster yet.
Kahandagama is a poster cut-out deity. Not only during the elections of Mahinda and Gotabhaya, but also during the protest rallies held in Colombo against the United Nations Human Rights Commission resolutions, Kahandagama managed to cover Colombo with posters, cut-outs and flags. Although strugglers made Kahandagama to abandoned politics, but through Ranil’s strength he has returned to politics.
But still he has not come down to his traditional politics. The reason may be that he is nervous to come out. Basil, who went to America, suddenly came to Sri Lanka and went to the polls, thinking that Pohottuwa would have enough votes to become the main opposition. Because of this, he initially did not play the game of postponing Ranil’s vote. But now Basil also understands that the battle is between Samagi Jana Balawega and J.V.P. Basilil is now working on Ranil’s election postponement game. Basil’s fear is the votes that will be taken by the Dullas-G.L.’s freedom platform. So Kahandagamala was thinking of getting out on the elephant but now he is holding it back. Basil and Kahandagamala are cheering for Ranil’s election postponement game.
Gangani is the most recent addition to Ranil’s election postponement cast. Range Bandara, today’s United Nations General Secretary, appointed her as Chairperson of the Government Press. He was the Minister of State for Vocational Skills at the time. Range Bandara was in charge of the printing press. Range Bandara presented Gangani with the chairman’s letter.
‘And Gangani claims that voter cards cannot be printed today because Range Bandara’s party, which appointed her, is unable to find votes…?’
I don’t know how to say. But she says that the reason for not being able to print the voter cards is that she did not receive the money requested from the Election Commission. Any printing company in Sri Lanka does printing on credit. The money will be paid later. On the other hand, the government printing press has previously done poll work on loan. Other works of the government have also been done on credit. According to the audit reports, the government printing department has to collect about 18 crores in arrears from various government agencies since 2010.
Only two crores have been received in 2021. That means that it is doubtful whether the ballot papers printed for the 2015 presidential election, 2015 general election, 2018 small vote, 2019 presidential election and 2020 general election have received money. Despite that, she is not talking about it and is asking for money to print the postal ballots for this small vote, because of this It is doubtful whether it is the wish of the U.N.P.’s leader and U.N.P. Secretary General.
Gangani was the first woman to hold the original chair of the printing department. That woman is used today to postpone a vote. Charles, a member of the Election Commission, was used for this work before her. Gotabaya appointed her to the post of governor of the north. It was Gotabaya who appointed her as a member of the Election Commission. Prince Sarojini Manmadarasa Charles sent her resignation letter to Ranil without sending it to the Election Commission to prove Ranil’s claim that there is a conflict in the Commission. Ranil did not accept her resignation and must have thought of taking the conflict of the commission to the court. But in the face of the opposition she faced, she must have been afraid to use Ranil’s game. At that time, Ranil showed the Prince Charles drama to the country. She is the main character. Now showing the Kalyani Ganga.
‘Will Gangani also learn a lesson like Charles…?’
Gangani’s printing department falls under the Ministry of Information. Its secretary, Anusha Palpita, is a person who went to jail for distributing white cloth to help Mahinda win the 2015 presidential election. When a government official does not fulfill the responsibility assigned to him by the constitution and goes to fulfill the responsibilities of politicians, he will go to jail. Gangani may not see what happened to the officers of the Ministry of Defense who thought that President Maithripala would take care of those threats when the foreign intelligence services said that there was a terrorist threat to the churches of Sri Lanka. It is not Ranil but Gangani who is postponing this vote. What Ranil does is puppet dancing. Gangani is the latest puppet.
‘What will happen if there are no elections…?’
Gangani must be thinking that Ranil will take care of her even if there is no election. Charles thought so and sent the letter. Finally, she was afraid to participate in that sin. Ranil thinks that nothing will happen without the vote. Ranil thinks that even if there is no vote, the sun will rise in the morning, the sun will set in the evening, and I will be in the presidential chair.
‘Can Ranil stay in the presidential chair without election…?’
Yes can stay. no IMF money , No G.S.P. plus. Every day protests, every day strikes, every day struggle.
When visiting the website of the International Monetary Fund, I.M.F. And there is a separate web page called Good Governance. It states that the IMF requires good governance that protects democratic principles from the countries it deals with. That is expected. IMF came here after Ranil became president. In the press conference held after the representative reached an agreement with the Sri Lankan government, IMF said. The government should have a mandate to implement the conditions.
‘Then why IMF doesn’t ask for an election…?’
IMF does not discuss politics in public. But there is a language they speak. That language IMF has spoken to Sri Lanka because the ‘agreements have not been completed. Money cannot be sanctioned.
Next is G.S.P. Plus. After Ranil became President, a discussion was held on 02 November 2022 with the representatives of the European Union and Sri Lanka. There, the European Union strongly emphasized the importance of protecting independent commissions and protecting good governance, the rule of law, and human rights. Today, Ranil’s government is attacking the Election Commission. Death threats are made to the members of the commission. They say they can’t give money for elections. The chief of the government press is pressured. GSP for Sri Lanka It is scheduled to be decided in March. Sorry dot com if you don’t have election.
Ranil thinks that he can postpone the election by dressing Prince Charles and Kalyani Gangani without dressing himself. But by now, as Maithri said, he has gone to make conspiracies to postpone the election and has finished spilling it all over his body.
