We defeated Mahinda but Maithree pissed Somarathna on us

We defeated Mahinda. 'We' means social media here. It was one of the major factors of his defeat although none of the present government has identified it and thanked us. It was hard work, lots of bytes and biting.

There are so many other 'we's in almost all the households of the island who can claim for Maithree's victory. So many people took the pain of converting people and keeping up their morale. It was not easy.

We elected Maithreepala Sirisena as President. He said he would not contest again. Thanks. He does not want to show up too much. Do your job and retire. We are ahead of the 100 day programme.

But I have serious doubts of the good governance now. Somarathna Disanayaka has been appointed as the Chairman of national television. Why not Dharmasiri Bandaranayaka or Prasanna Vithanage? No. They will not beg for positions. Somarathna and his likes know too well to appease the bigwigs. They know how to kneel down and beg. Nothing to do dear. There must be somebody to chair the national television. There are better names like Ganganath  but I think they are vying for better positions. Let them go.

Rupavahini has lot of problems. They don't have scheduled programmes to telecast, for instance, as one employee told us. Winning back the viewers is another challenge.

The government must understand this. Don't frustrate your campaigners in social media and in every household. They will make you cry soon. Remember, there is a general election coming ahead.

We will safeguard the victory to the extent you keep up with your promises. One said Somarathna is shit on the white swan. Somarathna was one of the hate mongers against the progressive artistes of this country.

We will not allow the dictator to re-emerge but your fate is in your hand. Govern good as you promised but it is not sufficient.

If you do not bring the corrupt ex-leaders to book, you will have to repent.


  1. This is bloody bull shit.. Fuck off Sirisena...


  2. Though I don't like this appointment I rather let him have a chance. Rupavahini new chairman will be COMPELLED to follow rules. Maithri can't say " I have the files....."

  3. Dharmasiri Bandranayake then said about what happened previously " After the victory we went home Somaratne went to Araliyagaha Mandiriaya" . Does history repeat?

  4. Dharmasiri Bandaranayake then said "After the victory we went home. Somartne went to Jandipathimandiraya". Does history repeat?

  5. I guess you mean Mathalan when you say " One said Somarathna is shit on the white swan" as It was he who mentions something to that effect in his latest post. Though I don't agree with most of what Mathalan says in his posts ( as same as yours), I feel surprised the manner in which he criticizes the new administration no sooner than it takes seemingly a wrong decision. I appreciate Mathalan’s bold stand. He had been and would continue to be an ardent supporter of new administration. I guess you must have been prompted to write your latest post both in Sinhalese and English by his post on the subject. You seem to be making a very unfair criticism against Mathalan claiming “He was one of the hate mongers against the progressive artistes of this country”. Why do you go to the extent of making such a general allegation to a person who had been as ardent as you had been in supporting the present administration for merely being critical about seemingly a wrong decision taken by the administration which both of you support to the hilt?

    1. I did not mean Mathalan. The hate monger is none other than Somarathna. Article will be edited.

  6. During the election campaign, Somarathna Dissanayake said repeatedly that he was not expecting any material befits by voicing a need for good governance. So, if he did not expect, then he should humbly refuse the position offered and be among the group he is in and continuous to be a critical person of what the government is doing.

  7. Give Somarathna a break will you, and Ajith come on you seriously didn't expect the goverment to thank socail media, but I did see many thank you messages posted on many official messages.
