The real traitors are the rulers: Bahu

Dr. Wickramabahu Karunaratne said that the real traitors were those betrayed the country by selling its resources to international organisations.

“Recently the President had referred to me by saying that I tarnished the image of the country by going for the TESO conference in Chennai. I have to remind him that the real traitors are those have betrayed our beloved country to the IMF and the World Bank. It is those people who have pawned this country to international entities who are the real traitors” he said.

Speaking at a rally organized by the movement to restore the rule of law together with Political leaders and civil rights activists including UNP Leader Ranil Wickeremesinghe, Lawyer J.C Weliamuna and a host of other leaders, Dr. Karunaratne specifically referred to the controversy surrounding his participation at the TESO conference, in Tamil Nadu.

Karunaratne went on to say that during his speech in Tamil Nadu he had reiterated that it was not only the Tamil speaking people who were affected by the current government but the whole country.

“This government is in total disrepute in the whole country and its not confined to the Tamil speaking people. All the people are against dictatorship and it’s not only the Tamils who are facing the wrath of the regime,” he said.

He said that during his speech at the conference he had said that the LLRC recommendations should be implemented.

“I stated that the LLRC recommendations must be implemented. Many people are using the word ‘Eelam’ to connote  a separate state. But that’s not what it actually means, just like the President says he is from Ruhuna, people from the North and East have devised the term Eelam and it does not connote a separate state. We have to talk about these Eelam Tamils due to the actions of the current rulers,” he said
.
The leftist leader reiterated that he did not fear to speak of the betrayal by the current rulers anywhere in the world.

“I will speak about it in this country or India or, for that matter, anywhere in the world” he said. (Hafeel Farisz)

    people in India also say the same thing about Dr.Subramaniam Swamy- he should not have attended the Defence Conference in SL and spoken against the Tamils and TN politicians

    alex Friday, 17 August 2012 07:04 AM

    Indian people have also repeatedly rejected Dr.Subramaniam Swamy whom the SL govt. is holding in high esteem and calling him a leader.
    Leader of a one man party rejected y his own people.

    Arun Friday, 17 August 2012 07:08 AM

    Agree TN politicians are jokers, but the fate of person who said it is also no different..karma.

    alwis Friday, 17 August 2012 07:38 AM

    Lets ask for another loan.

    CW Friday, 17 August 2012 07:31 AM

    Bahu, Go in front of a mirror, you will see who the genuine traitor is.

    I1 Friday, 17 August 2012 08:01 AM

    Country gradually slipping towards the nightmare thanks to outraged politics since the war victory.

    Anti Dictator Friday, 17 August 2012 01:29 AM

    Dear Bahu, I learnt from you a very special kind of engineering mathematics at Pera E-Fac decades ago. My question to you is that, your talent and brains have always been wasted by only to be in the opposition all the while. Now you are with UNP and when they were in power you were against them. Same with when the SLFP and the rest of the goons are in power. I hope you serve the country by becoming at least an independent minister. You are a very very dedicated and capable human being who loves Sri Lanka. Please do some good to the country not always being in the opposition no matter what party/govt you join with.

    Cyclops Friday, 17 August 2012 01:47 AM

    You said a mouthful, Bahu!!!

    Em Friday, 17 August 2012 01:55 AM

    Well said..

    sandu Friday, 17 August 2012 03:08 AM

    Politicians are doing politics using people's ignorance. They never let people to think using brain.

    Wijebahu Friday, 17 August 2012 03:05 AM

    Whatever said and done by rulers, you should not have sat down with those dishonust Tamil nadu Jokers (As SF said.)
    Their only intention is to create a seperate state.

    Saman Friday, 17 August 2012 03:18 AM

    Goodh!

    Nandal Feranando Friday, 17 August 2012 03:00 AM

    Great leader of Eelamist

    ajith fernando Friday, 17 August 2012 03:13 AM

    you have done serious mistake by participating at LTTE conference and making pro LTTE statements whereas most countries including India banned LTTE. Please try to understand that people have rejected you and your party long time ago.

    ANURA Friday, 17 August 2012 09:48 AM

    Aiyo Bahu, what are you talking ? It definitely insults whatever intelligence that some people say you are having. To us the average Srilankans ,you seem to be a traitor who dances to the tunes of NGO's and the Tmil diaspora. Learn to do something productive to your mother country without trying to undercut it to earn few dollars from pro LTTE people. Shame on you mate.

    Gandhi Saturday, 18 August 2012 03:08 AM

    I hope that Dr. Karunaratna is not taken
    seriously. Sri Lanka went through a terrible time.
    During any war horrible things happen. No one is blameless.
    The LTTE is considered as one of the most brutal
    terrorist groups in the world.It is banned in the USA.
    Whichever side you maybe on no one can forget who ended
    the war.Now we need peace not people who want to stir
    trouble again. Deport him!

    sach Saturday, 18 August 2012 04:57 AM

    thats the problem average sri lankans determine the course this country should take.

    Norman Hewage Friday, 17 August 2012 10:25 AM

    He is a genuine speaker for the Tamil people who have been denied of self determination.

    Dalu Banda Saturday, 18 August 2012 05:40 AM

    Sum are real traitors others are born traitors.

    Indeewara Friday, 17 August 2012 10:26 AM

    nothing to say about this man,what ever government do he could have criticized anywhere ,but not in Tamil Nadu,doing any dirty thing to make headlines has become the political culture of this country

    loki Friday, 17 August 2012 10:48 AM

    leave him to be there .Donto let him come back to SL

    Iranga Friday, 17 August 2012 04:16 AM

    We should make bahu a leader of eelam !

    Lanke Banda Friday, 17 August 2012 10:42 AM

    A Concocted mind this man. Disgrace.

    ALI GETA PERA Friday, 17 August 2012 04:32 AM

    But he is a straight forward Gentleman, not like R W, who is a JOKER

    Deen Friday, 17 August 2012 04:37 AM

    Hats off to Dr. Bahu for speaking against the government in regard to selling our motherland to foreigners. Everyone knows that this government is selling strategic prooperties to foreign countries. Why are the so called patriots silent when the government is having a field day selling the assets of the country.

    Siri Friday, 17 August 2012 04:38 AM

    deeply studing your behaviar,it is very clear that you will do any thing for NGO money,not for the mother land,

    Lobo Friday, 17 August 2012 04:52 AM

    Agree with Wijebahu.......even the TNA and other tamil parties realized significance of not attending this meeting.

    Priyantha Monday, 20 August 2012 11:43 AM

    Bahu is trying over-turn the government with the help of separatists Tamils. Bahu seems to be anti-unitied Sri Lanka

    Roy Friday, 17 August 2012 04:43 AM

    China is owning 25 percent of Sri Lanka

    sajitha Friday, 17 August 2012 05:14 AM

    who is funding your no man party? where did you find money? what did you sell to get it?

    Varuna Friday, 17 August 2012 05:00 AM

    Bahu you are worse than Rahu !
    You are such,
    that I ask you, they paid you how much ?

    Rubert Vanderkoon Friday, 17 August 2012 05:10 AM

    For this screwd up mind Bahu, the country is a cake. He loves it so much that he prefers it to be in pieces so he could taste it easier, faster. Instead of going to TN, he should have gone to the nearest psychiatric ward.

    Rubert Vanderkoon Friday, 17 August 2012 05:14 AM

    He still lives in a cloud cuckoo land. No country can survive without IMF/WB help now. Bahu has been against them since 1977. On the other hand, this man speaks in support of Eelam whenever given a chance.Must be shot in public!

    china Friday, 17 August 2012 05:10 AM

    Do they own 25% of you? I'm sure you would prefer if it was the sudhas and NGO's instead of the Chinese.

    helaya Friday, 17 August 2012 05:20 AM

    If we value the people from the results of the things they did, what do have to say about Bahu. Do we have any results from he or is he like a kid always does his O/L and get failed.

    senavi Friday, 17 August 2012 12:59 PM

    unfortunately the engineers (and other professionals) have done very little to SL economy and they depend on poor blue collar workers like seamstresses and housemaids for their paycheck

    upul Saturday, 18 August 2012 08:22 AM

    This is a valid statment. We blame, WESTERN POWERS, MAFIAS etc.. Real mafia is now exposed .

    Jayasiri Friday, 17 August 2012 06:15 AM

    You are trying to justify your alliances with Tamil Nadu jokers. This man is the real traitor.

    Andrew Pitugala Friday, 17 August 2012 06:09 AM

    Absolutely true. Please team up with Justice Warawewa and invite other like minded people to join.

    Gayan Friday, 17 August 2012 02:16 PM

    I am also 100% agree with 'Anti Dictator'. I also have learnt from him at the Open University. I wonder why he is always against the governments and being in the opposition wasting his talents. I learnt under management, if anyone does not have good "attitude" he or she is an unwanted person for any organization to recruit irrespective of the level of education and talents. I am sure Dr. Bahu also under same category. A person with negative attitude never will change because he/she never change (not flexible) their thoughts.

    Ananda D Friday, 17 August 2012 02:14 PM

    Bahu, you once said that you don't have money to own a motor vehicle to travel about. How did you get money to fry fly to Tamil Nadu to attend the Eelam conference. If Tamil diaspora funded you, are you an HONEST MAN ?

    Senna Friday, 17 August 2012 06:29 AM

    Well Said sir. He is imported from some colony. He is not a Srilankan. It is nice to hear from his own family and friends about his living culture.

    basil Saturday, 18 August 2012 09:39 AM

    Dear Dr. U are the only human among all other political animal
