'Sinha-Le' campaign not work of MR- Aluvihare

Leader of the Opposition of the Matale Municipal Council, Daljin Aluvihare, said rumours that the sticker “ Sinha-Le” pasted on trishaws and many other vehicles was an act instigated by former President Mahinda Rajapaksa, would tarnish the image of the former president.

He told the monthly meeting of the municipal council yesterday that a group of politicians who were out to arouse communal feelings, were responsible for such short-sighted acts but the fault was attributed to the former President.

“I am an honest politician who respects former President Mahinda Rajapaksa who is the fittest to rule the country. I respect him just as I respect my father. I am not scared of Maithri or Ranil. Former President Rajapaksa, during his visit to Matale, paid a courtesy call on my mother. Those around him paved the way for his downfall and continue to do so. Trishaw drivers paste the “ Sinha- Le” sticker on trishaws under the impression that it was a movement of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa. He lost the votes of many Sinhalese and Muslims at the presidential election due to such short-sighted acts, for which he was not responsible,”he said.

He further said he would inform the police in this regard and request that a formal investigation be launched into the matter. (M.W. Somaratne)

    Sinha-Le is a movement started by Mangala Samaraweera and Ruwan Ferdinandes funded by the Indian Intelligence agency- RAW. It is a coordinated move to divide and create unrest among the majority race and religion.

    Why did you keep quiet all this time. Spill the beans, let the world know the truth. If you are fabricating a story, then you will be living in darkness and you enter darkness by death.

    This politician must be blind and deaf to what is happening around him. His "ANGEL" MR was and is directly responsible for the communal problems.

    If it is not MaRa or his stooges, can the Provisional Councillor tell us who is behind this racist act?

    If Mr Aluvihare is confident that MR is not behind this he should know the culprit. Let MR make a public announcement that this particular campaign is only to tarnish his image and request his supporters not to support this vicious campaign.

    Every Sri Lankan born in this soil, has SINHA-LE. Be it a Buddhist, Tamil, Muslim or others... So why cry foul on a stupid campaign? Who ever doing this, what ever their motive is, they are a bunch of losers!

    It is interesting to note a political party in South India, came out saying that original Tamils and Originals Sinhalese were conquered and ruled by Telunku origin Nayakas dynasty of present Andre Pradesh of India. They claim with prove that the last king of Kandy, former CM of Tamilnadu, Karunanithi, DS SenaNayaka, SWRD BandaraNayaka to name a few... Over to you Sinha-le.

    Cannot disagree! In Tamilnadu politicians like Vaiko, Vijeyakanth are Nayakas and here we have TissaNayakas, EkaNayakas, SenaNayakas, WickramaNayakas.

    These racists were given a free hand during the time of MR rule. If MR was so innocent why NOT A SINGLE ACTION was taken even when lives and millions worth of property and assets were lost. They are the Godfathers of the RACISTS and still continue to be.

    I find nothing wrong in this as all Sinhalese have Sinha-Le. But this has nothing to do with communal riots as pointed out by UNP and remember 1983 was created by UNP and we Sinhalese paid it for 30 years.
