Talking point: GSP cat out of the bag!

A few days ahead of the voting of the United Nation Human Rights Council, the Opposition Leader flew secretly to Berlin. (His speech on Plan 2050 to mark the 50th anniversary of the Friedrich Naumann Stiftung Trust was proved later, a mission to join hands with the other malicious elements to hot up the campaign against the government).

When the secret of his trip was exposed, his followers in Colombo summoned a press conference and told that Ranil went to Germany to urge European Union not to curtail GSP+. Kirielle’s explanation well fitted to the explanation given by a jester of ancient Kings Andare to the owner of the Kitul toddy tree.

MP Kiriella said Ranil went to Germany to discuss GSP+ but what does Kiriella say now after his boss betrayed the country by his speech? Adding salt to his mission, he criticized the Human Rights in Sri Lanka and charged that the government was moving towards an authoritarian state.

Ranil forgot that he had maintained torture houses and, human life was given scant value under the regime of late 80s in which he was a powerful minister.

The entire world knows that certain international eminent persons scream over minor issues in countries like ours, not to protect Human rights of the common man but to protect their funding machines and prestige.

If the Opposition Leader genuinely wanted to discuss GSP+, he should have prepared to speak in favour of Human Rights in the country. Then why did he make a wrong speech? The Kiriella’s talk reminds us the old proverb - The cat is out of the bag!
