Mahinda Rajapaksa leaves Temple Trees

Former Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa left Temple Trees early this morning, under tight security.

Mobs had surrounded Temple Trees last night and attempted to break-in.

However, the Police fired tear gas while the security forces fired in the air and prevented mobs from moving in.

Rajapaksa tendered his resignation letter to President Gotabaya Rajapaksa yesterday.

The resignation of Mahinda Rajapaksa as the Prime Minister was later gazetted.

The gazette noted that Mahinda Rajapaksa has resigned from the Office of Prime Minister of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka under article 47(2)(b) of the Constitution of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka, with effect from May 09, 2022.

His resignation came after his supporters attacked peaceful protesters at Galle Face. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. CNN’s headline screams, “Military rescues Sri Lanka’s Prime Minister in pre-dawn operation.” This indicates of the seriousness of the plight of Mahinda – the “Maharajano” but who became Maharaja-NO. You can close your eyes and visualize the action packed drama.

    Look at your dry headline. It is just “for your information only.”

  2. Sri Lanka’s and all the other developing countries’ enemy is the creator of Covid-19.

    Unfortunately, the world’s majority does not understand its enemy. This is why minority westerners are ruling the world. Surly, the western powers would have encouraged the protests in Sri Lanka. That’s their job to dominate the world. Of course, they would seize the opportunity to reduce China’s influence. However, the Rajapaksas made the situation getting out of hand. The people don’t have enough food, medicines, gas and fuel. On top of that the government brought thugs from rural areas to attack the peaceful protesters. The Rajapaksa government pushed the people to go crazy.

    The Rajapaksas have failed to see this was coming. I could not believe how lightly the Rajapaksas took their responsibility. Now the Rajapaksas are paying a huge price for their ignorance. The foreign powers want to eliminate the Rajapaksas completely, so China cannot influence Sri Lanka. I don’t have a problem of removing the Rajapaksas but who will put the country first before their own, west’s or India’s interests? Again and again Sri Lankans are falling for the foreign powers’ tricks. Sinhalease and Tamils don’t seem to understand how diligently foreign powers implement their interests in Sri Lanka at the expense of Sri Lankans.

    Former Superpower Russia is struggling to hold together. China has far better way to manage its people’s, plus it doesn’t have corruption as South Asia. Furthermore, China does not have religious, language and caste issues, but China is struggling to come up. South Asia has no chance whatsoever. If any of you think that you or your Indian big brothers can come up, you are daydreaming.

  3. Lockdown all airports. Jail every last Rajapaksas and the lot of criminals and send them to The Hague for trial at the International Criminal Courts because their crimes now crossed international waters too…

    • What punishment would you give for killing millions of people and destroying the countries’ economy all around the world?

      The western powers significantly reduced the economic growth of developing countries through Covid-19. Look around the world to see how much China’s export and investments have been affected significantly. The West has been accusing China for Covid 19. Why would China self-inflict pain on its own? If the West didn’t create Covid-19, how can they undermine China and India? I used to laugh when the global economists forecasted China’s and India’s economic growth in double digits. Because those global economists don’t understand the western powers. The Americans and Australians don’t even live in their own country but took others’ homeland on genocides, and systematically covering up their atrocities.

      The world was fooled when Bill Gates predicted the pandemic. A university dropout who was struggling to pass course subjects labelled as a guru in information technology and pandemic. Bill Gates is a mouthpiece of the American superpower. Since Bill Gates predicted the pandemic I believed that the US has created COVID 19 to undermine the developing countries to continue to rule the world. The world was fooled when the US made Bill Gates as an information technology genius. The US kept an arm length distance between the US government and Microsoft to spy on the rest of the world through Microsoft. Email was first used by US security forces during World War II. This was a collective innovation which was funded by the US government.
