By Nirmala Kannangara Despite claims being made by Kurunegala District UPFA candidate Mahinda Rajapaksa that government institutions had not been privatized, startling revelations have come to light as to how a Rajapaksa supporter was allowed to control the Maga Neguma Emulsion Production Company, which was one of the three subsidiaries of the Road Development Authority (RDA).

These three companies have been incorporated pursuant to a decision by the cabinet of […]

If Mahinda wins the ‘killings will become an accidental death’.

9th August 2015 // 0 Comments

Kurunegala district UPFA candidate and ex-president Mahinda Rajapaksa said he would probe the killing of ruggerite Wassim Thajudeen if his party was elected to office at the general election. The killing took place in 2012 when Mahinda was in power and such killing was normal during his rule hence the killings were never probed to by the police as they knew these abductions and killings were done with the blessing of the Mahindas close associates and even if the killers were arrested they were ordered to be released by Rajapakshas within hours of arrest. Thajudeen’s death – which was brushed under the carpet by Sri Lanka’s law enforcement authorities three years ago – has now become a matter of contention. The Criminal Investigations Department, which […]

Mahinda Makes More false Promises

8th August 2015 // 0 Comments

Sri Lankans often witness many colourful policy statements and populist proposals presented during election times. Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa is also a political leader belonging to the same category, who has given various promises to the people during his political career. However, the ‘Mahinda Chinthana’ programme presented by him during his two terms in office must be carefully looked into, in retrospect. The term Mahinda Chinthana first entered in to the Sri Lankan political arena in 2005 with the launch of his inaugural Presidential Election manifesto. The prime intention of Mahinda Chinthana at the time was to put an end to the bloody war that was raging in Sri Lanka for 30 long years. With the end of the war on May 19, 2009, Rajapaksa […]
