CBK accuses SLFPers of betraying peoples’ demands

Former President Chandrika Kumaratunga said that she is watching with concern and regret the efforts by some Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) members to betray the peoples’ demands for a better Sri Lanka which gained victory on January 8th, 2015.

Kumaratunga said that the SLFP, together with most other parties and civil society, built a massive unprecedented movement to win the struggle for a decent, honest and prosperous Sri Lanka.

“It is regretful that some sections of our beloved Party finds it fit to betray all our policies and once again join hands with a political group that destroyed fundamental rights, democracy, democratic institutions and built a destructive network of graft and corruption,” she said.

Kumaratunga said that the scenes being played out in the past few weeks within the sacred precincts of Parliament, in Government and outside are destroying the peoples’ confidence in democratic institutions so long treasured and safe-guarded by all Sri Lankans.

“The time has come, as never before, for all Sri Lankans who value freedom, democracy and those institutions that uphold them, such as Parliament, the Judiciary, an independent Police, Armed Services and Public Services, to stand up for freedom and good Governance in this Country, setting aside all personal political and pecuniary interests,” she added.

Kumaratunga said that the country has reached a dangerous precipice of chaos, anarchy and breakdown of the rule of Law and all peoples must unite to bring it back from the brink and recommence the journey towards enlightened Governance. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. CBK,
    You are convicted by law court for corruption and therefore do not try to teach about good governance.
    1. Sri Lankan people never asked to daylight robbery of banks.
    2. Sri Lankan people do not ask for Orumiththanadu.
    3. Sri Lankan people never asked for Federal system or new constitution to attack the majority community and status of the Buddhism.
    4. Sri Lankan people never asked for fuel formulas to increase prices.
    5. Sri Lankan people never asked for such a tax burden.
    6. Sri Lankan people never asked for such a steep rise of cost of living.
    7. Sri Lankan people never asked to delay elections indefinitely.
    SRI LANKAN PEOPLE ARE ASKING THEIR SOVEREIGN RIGHT OF ELECTIONS TO VOTE. LET US VOTE IN A GENERAL ELECTION TO VOTE FOR THE PARTY WE FEEL MOST LIKELY LOVE THE COUNTRY.

  3. This country is cursed, ever since the formation of SLFP by your father this Peaceful Nation faced Race Riots, Food Shortages, Wars, etc etc. This KODIVINA party should get wiped off the Political scene of Srilanka to progress forward. Your father formed this party not to take this country forward, but to take revenge from the UNP, your fathers first task after wining tie 1956 general election is to NATIONALISE the BUS companies which was owned by UNP supporters. You spend lot of time in UK, see how that country is functioning, all govt institutions are PRIVATISED.
