Some powerful nations against Mahinda

Mahinda RajapaksaSri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) member and former Parliamentarian Salinda Dissanayake says some powerful countries are against former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Dissanayake said that the countries which wanted Rajapaksa out of power had used President Maithripala Sirisena and those around him to achieve their goals.

“These countries used Maithripala Sirisena, Rajitha Senaratne, Champika Ranawaka and others to remove Mahinda Rajapaksa from power in January,” he said.

The former Minister said that even Sri Lanka’s closest neighbor India had worked towards removing Mahinda Rajapaksa at the last Presidential election.

Dissanayake said that the next attempt by some countries is to ensure Mahinda Rajapaksa is completely removed from politics.

However he said that there is opposition growing towards that attempt with the participation of several members of the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) who are baking Mahinda Rajapaksa to return to power. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Why former Singaporean Prime Minister Mr Lee Kuan Yew never complained about the foreign powers? Because he was smart, committed to his country, and honest to his people.

  2. Drifting and dreaming or is nightmares. He appears to have his whole head pickled by the soup (sereppu) of crime they encouraged and practiced.

  3. Powerful countries never like small countries heading for development; and it is a know fact. They stay powerful by stopping others always poor. Weapon manufacturing countries love terrorism although they openly oppose to it; they do not have a business if no terrorism. We cannot change the world but we can survive only through unity. The one and only reason Rajapaksa was successful in the war is”It was a family business” so powerful countries could not bribe key members unlike in previous governments. This is the same reason he became an enemy of them.

  4. What an idiotic statement by another stupid Sri Lankan politician! These are the morons who govern our country (sigh). MR lost because the majority of the people voted
    against him. Idiot, insulting our intelligence.

  5. MR is responsible for his downfall. He thought that he was a king, jetting around the world trying to win respect and honour. If he had stayed silent within his own boundaries and concentrated on being a good president for all srilankans today he would have still been in power. The man openly demonstrated to the western world that he is a fool and a fool he is.
    There are many more powerfull more wealthy heads of state who are the opposite of MR.
    They know where to go, when to go, what company to keep and what to say.
    MR was surrounded by fools many fools ( court jesters) who took him to be a bigger fool.
    If the man does not learn from his past mistakes, he will never learn at all.
    In reality he is a good man, but became intoxicated for power, status, wealth etc etc etc that contributed to his downfall. The fools who surrounded him have run away to rob and cheat another day.


  6. Under the current regime Sri Lanka has lost its way and also the economy built with hard work has been destroyed. This I believe is not only due to corruption and nepotism but also due to incompetence and reliance on nations that did not assist in the defeat of terrorists.

  7. It is so evident that some countries used their ‘machinations’ to remove MR with the connivance of MS and CBK. Because they wanted someone in SL who can obey them. If we had leaders like MS, we would have lost our sovereignty long time ago.

    He cannot take a firm decision on anything, the latest being unable to make up his mind whether to allow MR to contest in the lections or not. He is probably waiting to hear from interested foreign agents. He is like a kite in the storm swayed by others’ opinions rather than taking his own decision. MS is the most dithering President we have ever seen

  8. With all money, ultimate abuse of state resources and thuggery, MR lost the cause. He was sent to the retirement by the nation, not the international community. He will learn that bitter lesson again many folds than the January the 8th. His time to play as a patriot is over, exposed via RADA money.

  9. So why couldn’t China, Libya, Ukraine and Myanmar save your leader? Sri Lanka has some respect after Jan 8th before that this country was treated like dirt because of MR. It is not just MR’s policies but the family bandiyism and corruption that his regime promoted over the past 5 years. Sri Lanka is better off without him.

    • It is not respect that we have achieved but servility to the west through which we have lost our self respect. That is why the people want MR back to lead. The countries you mentioned never interfered in our internal matters but only helped.

    • Well said Dishun, MR went behind the countries which failed as a nation.He went and donated money for a school in Palestine too.Now internationally SL is on track.According to MR, ….. Obama, David Camron,Stephen Harper everyone came to Sri Lanaka to vote for January 8th election ( Hora Vote).Pissek Mu

  10. MR is national candidature of next Primer of
    Sri lanka.

    This people’s choice. Not the choice of Big-powers.

    MR working on broader perspective of democracy and sustainability development of capitalism.

    How is that idea of justice derived from democracy of not that west but by East.
