Presidential hopeful Janaka Ratnayake said today that he and all civil organisations have decided not to join any of the 225 MPs in Parliament to form political alliances.

While signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the National Civil Organisation Front (NCOF) today, he said the public have rejected the 225 MPs, and he does not aspire to be one of them.

"Currently, civil organisations are carrying out a great national mission to rescue the country from where it has fallen.

"We named this mission as 'Rescue Sri Lanka'. The time has come for people to join hands with civil organisations to uplift the country and create a suitable environment to form a better leader," Ratnayaka said.

"A proper action plan will be introduced describing the correct and shortest way to restore the country. 

"We reject the current ruling parties while not letting them have another chance to come to power. 

"We need to create political parties and alliances that do not represent the current political parties. We need to join a political party in the future and create an alliance. But we will not join hands with existing political parties or with any of tge 225 MPs,” he added.

    No political party will want him. His vote base is a few electricity consumers.

    Another Nagahananda type candidate.

    And that is the bane of Sri Lanka. The current political parties have been so entrenched in the mind of our population who continue to hang on to them and never select a genuine person endeavouring to really uplift the country with an honest effort and not by promising the sun and the moon but finally pocket our wealth.

    Bravo ! 76 years of Independence and the country is bankrupt. It is a salient testimony of a failed system and the need for a volte face. We dare to dream !

    We Sri Lankans cannot progress or hold our heads high until: 1.All political parties I.e JVP, NPP, Rajapoxy brothers party, and the bent leaders party are completely vanquished. 2. We have modern forward thinking educated, technocrats as leaders who have a vision and 10 year plan for SLs progress. 3. No more redthe wearing red shawled illiterate or their children as MPs 4. No more uneducated red shirt failures or clergy backside licking oafs as politicians. 5. We need to be secular, non linguistic, non caste discriminating as a nation. 6. Embrace global trade, a diversified predominantly manufacturing based economy. 7. Take pride in ourselves as a Nation and as one nation of Sri Lankans 8. Realize the nation first, me second philosophy. 9. Understand that to develop We need to remove some infrastructure constraints e.g address, power, water, public transportation needs and resolve those bottlenecks before we build airports, useless towers and cricket stadiums. 10 merit based employmen

    List Your Ministerial Candidates too Sunday, 11 February 2024 02:59 AM

    Finally someone has offered an Action Plan! List out the candidates who will take over the various ministerial positions too in the coming elections. This will have a stronger footing on your organisation if your candidates are of the caliber the citizens want.

    Who are your Ministers Sunday, 11 February 2024 03:04 AM

    Good an Action Plan will be listed out

    Nursery story in real life Sunday, 11 February 2024 09:38 AM

    We read the story of a greedy jackal following the male goat, expecting the dangling testicles to fall off, so that he can feast on it. But this jackal does not want any of the present 225 to join the feast. It wants to bring its own kind of 225 team! And we trust it!
