Credentials of Ranil Wickremasinghe
Pro-Federalist Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe’ s accusing Mahinda Rajapaksha and his election campaigners gave millions of rupees to the LTTE Tamil terrorists to secure Mahinda Rajapaksha’s win over the presidential election in 2005. Regardless of facts of the accuracy of this allegation by Ranil, general public some or other believe it is right think to be done by the terrorist leader Prabakaran to boycott the presidential election and defeat Ranil Wickramasinghe for the sake of future of Sri Lanka.
Knowing the anti-Sri Lankan liberal mindset of Ranil, Sri Lankan public may agree with campaigners of presidential election of Rajapkasha if at all had they paid to the Tamil terrorist to boycott the presidential election in 2005.
The justifications to the above view of public would justify with the following few anti-Sri Lankan moves by Ranil;
1.0 Ranil Wickramasinghe as prime minister under pressure from US State Department’s strong man Richard Armitage signed the one sided Ceasefire Agreement (CFA) in 2002 with LTTE Tamil terrorists leader Prabhakaran without obtaining proper approvals from the cabinet and from the head of state, then president Chandrika Bandaranayaka giving the Tamil terrorists enough space to militarily build-up to match the Sri Lanka military and helping the professional operatives within the Tamil Diaspora to coordinate, organize and rejuvenate the Global (Separatist) Public Diplomacy campaign in the West to tarnish the image of Sri Lanka as ‘genocidal’ which is still being discussed in Geneva and elsewhere to date with the co-sponsorship Yahapalana government led by pro-minority Ranil and Sirisena.
(2) When Ranil Wickramasinghe was Prime Minister, in 2003, his government signed an agreement with the United States to open the Katunayake International Airport as a transit point for ‘extraordinary rendition’ of the U.S. to send terrorist suspects to CIA Black Sites in other countries for ‘interrogation’ meaning torture. Both neighboring countries India and Pakistan refused to sign such agreement but Ranil.
These are some credentials of Ranil Wickremasinghe other than his ICTA, OMP, and proposed federal constitution so on.
Imagine if he were president since 2005 he would have succumbed to Western, especially US pressure, to negotiate with the LTTE Tamil terrorists and undertake the ‘devolution of power’ agenda that would have been the stepping stone for separation and so called an independent Tamil nation in Prabhakaran’s ‘Homeland’ in the North-East region of Sri Lanka to form Tamil eelam.
Today Ranil is part of the exercise to promulgate a constitution with federal feature that the US wanted for a very long time to create a separatist Tamil eelam through the federalism.
The United States considered the LTTE separatist campaign and so called Tamil demands as the same.
