Mahinda resorted to his dirty old gimmicks

  • MR was supposed to resign yesterday. He consented to do so at a Cabinet meeting held at the President’s House on Friday, but since then he had been sending mixed signals. Yesterday, he resorted to his dirty old gimmicks

By the time of this writing, Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa has reportedly submitted his resignation.  Assuming he does not recant his decision for yet another time, he might be leaving the office, but only after coming almost close to setting the country on fire in political violence that could have an unprecedented toll on the nation.


The nation is already celebrating. Firecrackers are going off across the country. 


MR was supposed to resign yesterday. He consented to do so at a Cabinet meeting held at the President’s House on Friday, but since then he had been sending mixed signals. Yesterday, he resorted to his dirty old gimmicks. He bussed in the party cadre, the party members of the local government bodies and the members of Parliament to the Temple Trees.  As scripted, his acolytes, pleaded with him not to resign. He agreed and went back on his pledge made at the Cabinet meeting.
