Mr .President, This is why you should not be Re-Elected. We would like to mention 20 points out of hundreds to prove our statement. We can call these as Planned faults or errors of you and your governance.
1. Government is moving towards a dictatorship.
2. Violation of the Constitution by the President.
3. Contempt and disrespect for decisions of the Supreme Court.
4. Election laws violated by the President by ‘treating’ thousands.
5. People living in fear of the white van syndrome and the knock on the door at night. Lawlessness at an unprecedented high level.
6. Eviction Tamils from lodges and illegal detention of IDPs. Opposition MPs not permitted to visit IDPs. Will any Tamil vote for Rajapaksa?
7. Corruption rampant from top to bottom. Nothing can be done without bribes or commissions
8. Inefficiency and lack of transparency resulting in huge losses.
9. GSP+ lost due to arrogance of government. Thousands lost jobs.
10. Dissent suppressed. Those not with government branded as traitors.
11. National media, a national disgrace!
12. Media personnel abducted, assaulted, murdered. Sirasa and Leader Publications burnt. None arrested. Government stands accused.
13. Nepotism at disgraceful level. Over 250 close relatives appointed to important positions.
14. Hambantota getting favoured treatment.
15. More than 50 pledges in Mahinda Chinthanaya not fulfilled. President has lost all credibility.
16. Billions spent on maintaining ministers. Despite jumbo cabinet, economy has crashed, education a mess, scandals in health sector and crisis in agriculture.
17. Cost of living sky high. Reduction of prices and petrol an election gimmick now called ‘Fonseka bonuses.’
18. A selfish President grabbing all honours and occupying both Temple Trees and President’s House.
19. Attempt to boost image with cut-outs.
20. Entire Rajapaksa clan notorious for extravagant living at public expense.
If the incumbent President is guilty of even the first two points given above, that would be enough to impeach him or vote him out of office.
