Wimal claims plan was to create human catastrophe

Former Minister Wimal Weerawansa today claimed that the plan of some Government members was to create a human catastrophe on 9th May.

He said that while the country was facing an economic crisis there was an attempt to create a human catastrophe in the country.

Weerawansa told Parliament today that DIG Deshabandu Tennakoon was prepared to use water cannons to disperse the mob heading to Galle Face to attack peaceful demonstrators.

Tennakoon had reportedly received orders from the President to disperse the ruling party supporters heading to Galle Face.

However, he said Tennakoon received other orders not to disperse the protesters.

The DIG had reportedly been told not to get involved in the clash between the two brothers, President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa.

The MP told Parliament that “kaputa” was also part of the plan to set fire to the country with ulterior motives.

Former Finance Minister Basil Rajapaksa has been given the nickname “kaputa” based on an interview he had given the media. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. The Rajapaksas are United, this is another game by Wimal to protect them from accountability and jail. Who else would want the protesters attacked? Then burn your properties to hide evidence of corruption how convenient!? Now going to use taxpayers money to build yourselves new homes nice games…

    Now you got the military out on the roads too you can’t fool the citizenry and the world that easy…

  2. I have a reservation about the violence on 9th of May. I am not entirely convinced that the protesters set fire on those properties. Around 108 houses were destroyed, how come nobody was inside? Was it planned and informed the occupants to leave? Perhaps Basil Rajapaksa’s property (corruption case) and Rohitha Rajapaksa’s hotel were deliberately destroyed because those assets may become a problematic, if the Rajapaksas lose their power. Plus the violence may help to bring the military to keep the Rajapaksas’ grip on power. Since Easter Sunday bombings, I think from every angle to understand dark minds and their actions.
