Sundara (Beautiful ? Attractive ? Beloved) Dictatorship


Sundara (Beautiful ? Attractive ? Beloved) Dictatorship

This Sundara Ekadipathi-Wadaya (Mouth Watering Beautiful Dictatorship) was a statement made by a former minister who did not know he needs two legs to stand even in a high rising hotel and broke his leg causing wastage of tax payers money.

The example he put forward was a kindergarten stuff.

He says that ex-president would reprimand a party MP for erecting a foundation stone with work not done or undone by a opposition member.

He says the former would blast the member and that is why we need a dictator to run this country again.

The corollary is that his party members lay foundation stones and leave them alone until he visits the site and in front of cameras become a Sundara President (Beloved Dictator) by his rhetoric.

I think we must thank the voters for sending them to opposition.

In the first place politicians should not make empty promises and make rhetoric to go with them.

Why do we need a President for such cheap propaganda?

This is why I always maintain we should reduce the number of MPS and Ministers in the parliament.

Then P Vasu comes on TV and state (hatching conspiracy) that in one year he intends to change the government by (most likely money ill gotten from LTTE Gold and other means) changing the allegiance of the MPs by bribing and bringing back a showpiece leader.

It is like changing pillows for a headache.

The real headache is the debts incurred due to money borrowed by the past (70%) and current (30%) government.

I do not curry favors for the current regime but would like to reiterate changing the previous regime after nearly 21 years was a colossal achievement spearheaded by late Rev. Sobitha and the wakeful Citizen Action Groups.

UNP reaped the benefits is no issue to me since there was no alternative and JVP was not ready to step into the shoes yet.

Whether they (JVP) will be successful in power is another issue.

Of course their contribution was solid.

We need to keep that spirit high in the agenda.

The bottom line is these MPs who had been in the parliament for donkey's years (some of them are real donkeys) and have contributed nothing to the public welfare but to their pockets.

This is why I say we should have elections in every three years, so the electorate can decide who deserves a pension after six years.

P Vasu has empty vision.
Only for toppling the elected government.

We cannot have elections for another five years.

His arguments are undemocratic and he does not have the patience to wait for gradual evolution of consensus and more importantly common sense in this country.

Also we must let the voter entertainment and amusements (when they utter nonsense in public) galore and to flow liberally, while they are in opposition with reduced status and image.

That little perversion of the voter is a bonus.

What the academia (media too) has to do is to raise the standard of the questions posed and educate the masses in smaller doses.

1. How corrupt they were in power.
2. How impotent (physically too) while in opposition.

3. How they crave for posts while doing sweet noting when in office.
For example;
P.Vasu- Racial Integration.
What did he achieve?
Sweet nothing perhaps more aggravation!
