JVP Needs More Votes not Strikes

  • 6 Feb 2007 15:02:05 GMT

    JustMan (from what i have seen here) is a Faithful JVP follower. HOwever he says

    [I would suggest that the JVP talk to Persons like Mr Anandasangaree and Ranil Wickramasinghe and other truly democratic and honest leaders to form a grand coalition to form the next Government.]

    RW???? What is going on?

    Im attacking RW.

    Just Man is saying RW is good.

    GLP + Milinda Moragoda are with MR.

    CBK + Mangala and the crowd are supposedly going to join RW.

    What is going on??? :) :)

    I am a follower of good governance,which is lacking since,sir John left the island and since then our political integrity and honesty is in a downward spiral,likes of JVP looks far more Honorable.We can`t look back on their history,what matters is what and how they are performing now,when in the government benches ,as this matters a lot.We can keep on talking about the past,for which the present generation have scarified a lot to make up for it.So let the force be on the true democrats and mind you,no one is 100% perfect. They have Learned their bitter lesson,for falling out of line.Srilankan politics is in a state of flux,just in time before the island draw out the oil from her land.With all the terrible sufferings of all her citizens,a new coalition party such as mentioned by me be a good beginning for SL,by which the oil money would be used to uplift the living standards of it`s citizens,or it would be plundered by a regime who will have it`s interest in stashing it countries abroad,just as in the oil rich African states.

    Justman:

    I agree with most of the things you said. I was just a bit surprised at your comment about RW - thats all :) :)

    Just curious - how come you didnt include MR in the `grand Alliance`? :). Serious question here.

    Cheers

    You see RW is a person with a deep rooted vision,nearly foxed the tigers with an international safety net and his CFA has weakened the the tigers,within their own ranks and people.From what I heard,that vision was to make SL a country of hi tech excellence etc,perhaps like what is happening in India,where our highly ,technically educated persons attract international attention.During his election campaign his message was wrongly or not properly exposed.Also there are short sighted,perhaps ignorant people in SL couldn`t or wouldn`t understand it.In other words he was a prophet in the wilderness.The efforts of the CFA made it much easier for the forces to overcome much of the East also as a result the the trapped people coming out have seen the prosperity of the areas of the south and when it came to the question of a separate state vs education of their children,welfare of the people,food in the house,jobs etc the latter took priority and thanks to the CFA the world was open to them to judge for themselves.He was saddled with some equally courrupt politicians and he would have got rid of them,should he had got the Prsidancy,but his work is cut out,with this crossover,good bye to bad rubbish,I would say! .Very busy,must go,bye!

    Sorry the answer to the second part is that,MR can`t be given the credit for the situation in the country now,as winning some parts of east is not to his credit,for what I may ask? It was under his previous regime that the war was run badly,for political gain,was the problem being solved?Do you have people dancing in the streets now? It`s too early to count the chickens,no way tigers are defeated yet,some more miles to go and the credit goes to the SF and not to the politicians.You saw his appearance in Sampur,he is playing cheap politics,like one C of chief on a aircraft carrier.

    JustMan:

    Very interesting thoughts. If you have read my comments - you should know that i Agree 110% about every thing you say. Too bad people didnt see that part of RW. Even today, i admire what RW did for the country and his vision and plans. Thats excatly why i believe MR will fail miserably in the long run.

    However, when the time comes we should be ready to leave. Nothing is Permanant in life. He gave it his best shot and it didnt work. This happens to all of us. There have been Many a times where i thought that i had made the BEST proposal, to a client to win a project, but for one reason or the other they dont accept it. In business, we keep trying till we succeed. However, in Politics, after a few tries, if you dont succeed you should step down gracefully with your dignity in tact and head held high.

    RW Problems are not problems you can fix. If your policy or vision is wrong, then you can change it. However, RW problem is one of Personality, his Inability to connect with the people, his inability to talk to people the way they understand. I dont know if those are traits that can be corrected.

    SO thats why i think he should leave. He should be ashamed of clining on to power like that. Just like MR should hang his head in shame because of the way he came to power.

    cheers...

    PS: as for your comments on MR. I cant agree more!! It seems like you and i have a lot in common, when it comes to our thinking :)

    Justman & Anizam,

    [You see RW is a person with a deep rooted vision,nearly foxed the tigers with an international safety net and his CFA has weakened the the tigers,within their own ranks and people.]

    [During his election campaign his message was wrongly or not properly exposed.]

    True. But we all have to understand the situation better. Unlike MR, RW didnt have the luxury of communicating his plans clearly and precisely to the public at the presidential campaign. If he had done so, his plan would be discovered and all his efforts gone to a waste. I understand that his intentions behind some of the work he carried out during his tenure is no secret and has been public knowledge for a while, but actually admitting to these speculations in public would have brought an end to his long term plans.

    The path RW took wasn`t as easy to explain as what MR is taking now. There are people who understood and people who didnt and the last presidential elections show that the fraction who didnt understand it was more than the fraction who did.

    I do agree that RW connection with the masses is much less as compared to MR, but communicating to the public regarding the solution he had planned would have made the plan ineffective. All we had to do was give him more time and our trust.

    Anizam,

    [However, RW problem is one of Personality, his Inability to connect with the people, his inability to talk to people the way they understand. I dont know if those are traits that can be corrected.]

    Also True. He is known to be quite the a55 even to people who contributed to his campaign, where as MR on the other hand would do the exact opposite. I have never understood people who support politicians for their image. Makes me wonder if it`s actually his flaw or flawed thinking on the publics part.

    Magaychintanaya!

    It is the flawed thinking of the people,to run after the image rather than his capability.

    Too little too late!
