The satakaya about to be one of the most hated trademark outfits in Sri Lanka – why does Sajith Premadasa also want to join them?
As if the whole sordid Tissa Attanayake, Sajith Premadasa, Kili Maharajah and Tiran Alles plan hatched by Jalani Premadasa, as a favor to her beau Tiran was not enough, after phase one where Sajith was installed as Deputy Leader, stage two of Tissa defecting has begun unravelling, as he was completely out of the loop cuckolding out of the party as fast as his legs could carry just to stop being completely shamed as an accessory to destroying the UNP. In fact it was the best thing in years for UNP.
I guess the UNP is made of stronger bonds than these tenuous ones and so it has now come to pass that the final Jonah in this game is SP, with nothing to do, nowhere to go, no one who wants him, and worse, even letting down those who were his supporters, by not turning up at the rallies where he was highlighted as a speaker.
In this classic chicken and egg situation we don’t know if it was JP who undid SP, or vice versa, but in my opinion, the personal ambitions, of Kili and Tiran to be king makers, and who were completely snookered by Ranil Wickremasinghe, gave the coup de grace to SP’s political ambitions for ever.
With the coming colors, neither KM nor TA are able to completely use their media to be one sided for the President, and so are caught between a rock and a hard place.
There are just a few days to go until it is all over, and there is little anyone can do to change the outcome. However, in the desperation to grab a big fish, it is Sajith that the MR campaign is targeting, and the broker as always is the ailing Tiran Alles.
What is the price? Rs1B, as now billions are chump change, but as soon as the new administration comes, their source will be questioned and ALL THE MONIES WILL BE confiscated, and so not only do they lose their political future at a stroke, but also they lose all the money they greedily thought they would gain.
The Govt. has money to burn, as it is all ill-gotten gains. I don’t know how much of the Sumal Perera US$100M give away is correct, but there are enough people in Colombo, who really believe that all this money was converted to Rs5000 bills to be passed around for a last minute change back to MR by voters bribed by this pittance to change their vote.
