" SLMC leader & Justice Minister Rauf Hakeem who yesterday resigned from his portfolio , the Justice Minister of the ruling UPFA government noted in his resignation letter that president Mahinda Rajapakse is an exceptional Political Leader. so here are the thoughts of Ex Minister Hakeem;
so what else can a nation expect from any leader? so i can ask this from any group, right?
by now everyone understand what he hopes i discussed yesterday.
And there was another thing that reported in Divaina Daily Paper (Monday, 29th December, 2014) penning the ideas of the superior of the America & Canada Buddhist Cooperation, the venerable Walpola Piyananda compiling them into an article.
some of the ideas of the Thera, quoted in the article are as follows;
In 1971, about 400 Buddhist monks were arrested by the then authorities , the current president Mahinda Rajapakse was the person who took action as a leader to get them released. and the Thero further reveled that he went to America during the period where there was a war in Vietnam. he has stated that once the war was over in Vietnam the contributors, the heroes of the war fronts lost their jobs and started hanging around here and there started using harmful drugs, for example. so obviously becauseof such reasons the Maha Sangha that understand now and then of society in its every corners support President Rajapakse.
what does such information really revels, i keep some space for you to analyze ...............
Alright lets talk about some figures and percentages that the opposition use so tearfully . where is the handkerchief by the way? to wipe off the tears in eyes? : -)
i saw and advertisement about couple of days ago it is about some percentage that has given by the group of negativity. sorry to say i use that word because you never see anything positive or good about this country.
So this 29% that they have given is so good and is a very good verification because that it self gives a brilliant picture of the standards of living of people of this country COMPARED TO THOSE DAYS, THOSE YEARS. So the number figure that the oppositions used in earliest years was not 29% during their election campaigns. The figure was very high compared to this 29% that they produce and fabricated and keep before the people of this country.
i believe that they say this figure without really thinking too much or without really studying any situations. I am certain that they have not done any surveys on this 29 percent number that they use with regard to living standards of people.
i say if you are so sure about this figure PLEASE GO AND COMPLAIN IT TO THE MINISTRY OF LABOUR because if they do any jobs at any reputed company, private ( because any idiot know that any government cannot pay their government servants of any level less than the minimum wage) they are truly breaking some labour laws. so get the list and hurrrrryyyyyyyyd to the labour minsitry please.
let me give you some calculations but not to please your hearts but to promote your maths skills a bit :-)
If you say that they spend Rs. 100/= each day that means the total amount of their earning is Rs. 2900/= :-( that is against minimum wage of this country. And believe me if they are earning by any chance less than Rs. 3000/= they are for sure is eligible for SAMURDHI BENIFIT. AND Dear Sir Rs. 2900+ the Samurdhi = what is the total amount of their what so ever earning. so your calculations HIGHLY INACCURATE and the figures cannot be trusted.
And if they are by any chance daily paid wage labourers of any building constructing site ( these days you find many constructing sites if you are using any proper spectacles to see things properly) they earn ( not the big basses) minimum 600 Rupees a day. even if they earn 600 x 30 = what is the total amount they earn 18 000 / = a month Now it is not just a single man who earns in a family now a days.
And what you sometimes forget is for instance my mother is 64 years old and if you think of her schooling days the Socio, Cultural, Political Economical situations are totally different to the situation today' she cannot be a competitor of today's' job market. So if they, that you take so tearful, dark pictures ( what picture laboratory you go to?) that does not show any signs of happiness ( what do you do to edit pictures, i mean what software you use, Photoshop?) for your election campaign is so sympathetic really. sympathetic not about them but abut you who uses such pictures in selling mode.
selling the innocence of those people to get vote. that is something unacceptable. Those days when there was no action but talking only era and the years that the LTTE was very strong in their positions thanks to some, such pictures were so demanding to earn some ' dollars or what so ever currency to set up an NGO. Look these people have this and that ailments due to war trauma they write in their reports, showing a picture of children who cry sitting near a fence or something (no entry territory) that is for sure the LTTE have taken their lives, could earn a lot of money. such pictures of those days every demanding and earn-able. Now there is no war you cannot take any such pictures to set any NGO or something.
when editing such pictures did you cry, don't cry i am sure you can remember how the so called crocodile tearly dearly NGOs earned money those days ( big sorry this is not applicable to good hearted NGOs)
so women and men of those days cannot really compete with the current world that expect from their workers , even from skilled or unskilled laboures high qualifications so they cannot get what you get these days, as a minister. it is not everybody gets chance to start a rice mill, or a television or radio institution, channel.
so for such category that cannot engage in modern job categories given an option , one of them is ' Samurdhi benefit. do you understand that also gives not to the category who earns their own money engaging in any self employments an pay bit of taxes. understandable No. if you talk about the samurdhi there are jobs that arose through the concept. there are about 5000 ( please correct if i am wrong) jobs in permanent position thanks to this concept. here in this they don't feel dependent because of the way that it is functioning , for instance divi neguman ( life uplifting ) programme
