Gota Is Mentally Sick, A Family Friend Reveals

By Senaka Samaranayaka

Gotabhay Rajapaksa’s appalling behaviour started after LTTE   suicide attempt some years ago and  as a result of this his head on the right side was knocked so hard, since then he has no control over his emotions especially anger, a Rajapkasa family friend reveals.

Willa and DEW

Last Sunday, Willa Wickramasinghe a businessman and a close confidant of President Mahinda Rajapaksa visited a private hospital to check on an aged female family friend whom he had known for years and who was well versed in political matters in the country. During the visit which lasted for about an hour many interesting topics were discussed. The discussion then turned on to the latest media glare that spilt news on Secretary to the Ministry of Defence Gotabhya’s puppy.

It was alarming to note that there was not a hint of remorse or a feeling of shame from this gentleman for the disgusting manner in which the Secretary to the Ministry of Defence replied to the Sunday Leader editor Frederica Jansz who called him to verify facts. This is despite the fact that the ailing patient went on and on to explain that such behaviour was not welcomed from a person from that caliber and position. She further mentioned that if such threats were made publicly by any other person he or she would have been sued.

Gotabhaya just after the LTTE attack - As a result of the attack his head on the right side was knocked so hard and since then he has no control over his emotions especially anger

Whilst any person with an iota of intellect would consider this tantamount to pure intimidation and threats as the person concerned is not just any one but a man of authority and power. It is hard to imagine that this senior citizen with all his left oriented ideas and years of experience, trying to whitewash Gota’s outrage by making an excuse, mentioning an attempted assassination which was blamed on the LTTE in 2006. It’s a fact that we all know that he escaped unhurt from this ordeal whilst two commandos were killed instantly. But he went on to justify his appalling behaviour saying “this is a result of the Secretary’s brush with death during the attempted suicide some years ago.  As a result of his head on the right side was knocked so hard and since then he has no control over his emotions especially anger.”

Adding insult to injury he stated that he can’t imagine why the Gotabhaya Rajapaksa bothered to answer the call knowing very well that the caller was this woman journalist. He said “a man of such high position should have a person to monitor incoming telephone calls and only calls that are important should be answered by him”

This discussion was later joined by the senior Minister DEW Gunasekara who was very sympathetic towards the Secretary saying “In the interview which he has given to the media today he had admitted that he lost his temper”, implying we have to excuse this poor man’s behaviour no matter what and that Sunday Leader is only making a big drama out of the whole episode.

This reflects how senior citizens and people holding responsible positions who  brag themselves to be  leftists not only trying to justify but try to deny the fact that Defence Ministry  Secretary is not to be blamed for his improper conduct and  trying  to divert blame elsewhere.

    You can not expect any thing decent from this ruling click. They will white wash one another in any event that they are involved. Our country is in a deplorable position. What can you expect from this regime when top to bottom are corrupt to the core. Srilankan will not be able to change this. Rulers will use every force to contain any action for a change. All the elections will be rigged as they did with the last presidential election. Election will not bring any changes as desired by the masses of this country. This may involve intimidation physical abuse and even murder with the tacit approval of the law enforcement authority of Srilanka.So only

      If Gotabaya Rajapaksa is mentally sick, he belongs in the mental institution and not in the highest governmental office of Sri Lanka

        The guy has ‘delusions of grandeur’ and has lost it, to think that he saved Lanka and that Lankans should be grateful to him when in fact he would be unemployed and unemployable in CA at this time if not for mr.! Gota has clearly lost it to be claiming that he saved Lanka when he is ruining it and bringing the country a very bad reputation with his white vans and hate speech!

          Why is it that this government with absolute power fear any form of critisim ??

          Gotabaya Rajapaksa is Sri Lanka’s éminence grise…

          No one in Sri Lanka never had any illusions about him and many are not surprised at his diatribe which is not acceptable in any decent, democratic society.

          Apart from anything else, this is so egregious a violation of the Mahinda Chintana first edition and of the subsequent Idiri Dekma version!

          Gotabhaya Rajapaksa horrendous and appalling behavior should not be dismissed as inconsequential, not condoned by silence and not nourished by impunity?

          The headlines are to attract people who have not heard anything, do not read anything, or watch anything other than the criminality of our country. I come back once a year and see progress on all fronts but the opposition who crave power but are very unlikely to get anywhere even with the help of the expat Tamils. The people from the North and East live in peace but a mad woman who is attention seeking provokes reactions from a soldier…. now what would you expect him to give her vile allegations… a blessing in pontifical language? She is absolutely mad and craves attention. Now she wants to sue! She has not got a clue about how she is going to get the GTF and the BTF to fund her case… if she dares go thorugh with it. She is a court confessed liar an absolute disgrace to free journalism.

      I never thought Gotabhaya was such a 3rd class fellow.

      I lost all respect I had for him. I thought Gotabhaya was a respectable person.

      Looks like he is no better than a common thug. I am begining to think whether the White flag case and other accusations against him could be true???

      Gotabhaya Rajapaksa’s foul language can come only from a foul mind.

        So here we go… a class war. What do you put your self as? Class I? Soldiers give and take ordersand they stand up to fight men in arms not people who are brave with a key boad and pass muck in their underwear when there is a sound of fighting.
        Foul language is part of the forces, has been and will always be. Even at West Point US, the training is hard and the boys are made men. If you know self defence then you can argue with a soldier or else shut up.

    There is no excuse for this man’s uncouth behavior. He does not have the temperament, class, stature, nor the qualifications, to hold such a high ranking post in the Sri Lankan government. He is a disgrace to the country, and no official should continue to hold this post, if he/she is found to be mentally sick.
    The fact that the big man keeps ignoring the thuggish behavior of nuts like Gota and Mervin, indicates
    he is okay with mental cases acting like goons in his government. What wonderful standards.

        How funny that the story has turned out to be about everything and everyone other than the NEWS ARTICLE itself which highlighted that 1. Fifty six passengers were to be offloaded (inconveniencing them and incurring loss to Sri Lankan Airlines)
        2.(along with the fact that Sri Lankan Airlines is in severe debt)
        and a smaller aircraft used, for the sole sad purpose of bringing a stupid dog from Switzerland for Gota’s wife
        3. while also questioning who was paying for the passage of a pilot for this ridiculous task.
        Channa, Kumudini and all those other people out there, we need to be focused on what is best of our country. So what if Gota helped bring down the LTTE. These guys have been paid (with the blood, sweat and tears of our people apart from tax payers hard earned money ofcourse) to do what they do (remember some of them were voted in by the people?) and have they not stolen more in their rule than any other government before?
        So get a grip on reality people & take note of the important facts! There are people out there (not the cowards who report what the GOSL spokespeople tell them to) who risk their lives to let us all know what is happening behind the scenes. It may not be the journalism they themselves choose to communicate but that is not their choice is it? They don’t invent stories, they broadcast them so we can all be aware of the Truth. These people deserve some respect.
        PS. Setting examples is what people in leadership need to be doing. So, leave alone the bigger stuff for another debate but if Gota wants a dog, can he not get one from Odel’s kennels and do some good? And the language – even the language he said he used, was that appropriate for any interview? There’s simply no excuse for such a silly display of arrogance and anger.

          Absolutely right. This is yet another case of “if you don’t like the message, attack the messenger”.
          Some people here have very low standards when it comes to their public servants, and the way they conduct themselves. This is not the first time the Goat head has acted in such an arrogant manner, and he is known for shooting his mouth off during other interviews too. Because he was ONE of a team that was able to get rid of the LTTE, does not give him the right to behave like a thug on the street. He has to stop acting like he is entitled to abuse his powers and say what the heck he wants.

    All Lankans have this problem of: Without me it could’nt be done.ME ME ME.
    Without me this country will be nothing! Look what I’ve done,the immense development! And so on.
    Even when we are paid a salary to do a job as in Gota’s case it always is about I’m tha man.Our people have to go about thumping their chests except for our cricketers who are team players,give credit where due.

    When can we be quiet and humble about our job,not abuse it and leave when time is up?
    I remember a politicians driver in the late 1980’s was very happy he had got the flag pole fixed,Pol comes out,see’s it and asks? what is that?Sir,that is the pole for the singha kodiya! Did I tell you to fix it he asks sternly,No says driver,Then drop me at office and go remove it.
    Fast forward 2012 and what a mess.

      Valid points. No doubt about that.

      Yes, in order to make lankens more aware of the needs you pointed out – our people must work with proper guidance of sociologists and the related professionals building up the society.

      If the nation´s uttermost wish to see the prosperity – within the country, people should work hard to achieve the goals, not just sticking on to the criticims, stay indiffernt, paying their contributions, because each and everyone is an unit of the nation. GOSL is there to guide nation to right directions properly. If the leader himself fails to see good and bad – the consequences are clear to everyone. Build up the war torn society should be the first step- then the other events. So, fair enforcement of law and order is a must in order to fulfil the latter.

I can talk about the morale that was going underground and even senior officers were giving up hope of holding on to the North and East.

      It seems you are out of the loop. Perhaps you have not been informed that Journalists, activists, and members of the media, have been kidnapped, are missing, and killed by evil forces that benefit from their silence.
      There is no freedom of speech anymore. Journalists are threatened and fear for their lives, every time they
      are brave enough to criticize the government.
      Apparently you think that because he was one of the team that destroyed the LTTE, that he is entitled to behave like a common thug, and that he can abuse his powers as a high ranking official to order a puppy be flown by the pilot of his choice, which would have resulted in Sri Lankan airlines incurring a loss.
      There are certain standards public servants have to adhere to, and it is a shame you cannot see the shame this man brings to the country, by such disgusting behavior.

      If he is indeed mentally ill, his brother the president should perhaps get him to a psychiatrist, and replace him with some who is not a relative, and who will not act with arrogance and entitlement, and who above everything else can act like a gentleman.

      We had Chandranada de Silva and Lionel Fernando as Defence Secretaries. The should have been Managers of a Dog Pond – such was their inefficiencies. I know because I was there when even the stars of the army were hoping that the war would end politically and that may have been why Ranil got the PM ship. Every Defence Secretary we had since 1983 wasprobaly well spoken and gentlemanly but this man is a complete soldier. I admire him and also the way he answered a paranoid woman.

    Last year I made the mistake of flying Sri Lankan (from London) on the second leg of a trip from USA to Sri Lanka. At Heathrow, I was appalled at how Sri Lankan airline staff kept passengers waiting in the lounge long past the boarding time, offering no apologies or a reason for the delay. They made a muted announcement upon my demand for it, after falsely claiming they had already made such an announcement (in their heads!). For all I know they might have held the flight back waiting for some kin of the Rajapakse clan to bring an ugly cat on-board!

    Provocation is what somebody does to the great annoyance of another and Fredrica’s incessant questioning reveals that she has got a few screws lose.

      You have certainly taken the debate into the gutter. It does reflect badly on the side you choose to take, because after all this is about the foul mouthed, high ranking government servant, who does not seem to have the temperament to hold his post. These ugly attacks on Ms.Jansz, who after all, is a journalist doing what they are supposed to do, even though you may not agree with her methods, is uncalled for. If the Goat head does not have the expertise and maturity to handle her like a statesmen, then he is totally unsuitable for such a post. The media is known for aggressive questioning,provocation, and like or not, trying to find a scoop, and if the person interviewed does not have the temperament, class, nor the maturity to handle it, then you cannot fault someone for trying to do their job. The nation is tired of Gota’s arrogance because he claims he wiped out terrorism (by methods human rights groups question), and his false sense of entitlement.
      Even if we pretend that Ms.Jansz was being provocative, there was no reason for Gota to warn her of being killed, because right now we have journalists and activists kidnapped, missing and killed, and Gota seems insensitive to the fact that many in the country look at the Rajapaksa regime with suspicion and mistrust.
      Not a good choice of words.

    It is ridiculous to suggest that Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa is “mentally sick” because someone says he had a knock on the head. There has been an orchestrated campaign to malign and demonise Lt. Col. Rajapaksa, probably because of the power of his speeches in both Sinhala and English, and his role in defeating the LTTE army.

    It is possible to provoke anyone into losing their temper, and from the rude, hostile interviews I have seen both Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Rajiva Wijesinha subjected to by the likes of the BBC “Hardtalk” program both have a long fuse when it comes to losing their temper.

    It is easy for people to sit in judgement over little episodes of videotaped or recorded outbursts of anger when people are provoked. Lt. Col. Rajapaksa has every reason to get angry with Jansz, especially after 30 years of war by people intent on dividing the country along ethnic and linguistic lines, rather than promoting harmony between the people of Sri Lanka. (Shades of the old Empire game of Divide and Rule – noting that the LTTE was headquartered in London for most of its existence, being the residence of Anton and Adele Balasingham).

    Gotabaya Rajapaksa comes across to me (having watched both sympathetic and hostile interviews with him) as a man who is both direct and assertive, but not confrontational or aggressive, and certainly not insane. It is, in fact, defamatory to make such claims.

    As for these so-called “journalists”, many people who were working as propagandists for the LTTE and Eelamists called themselves “journalists”. None of them identified themselves as “propagandists” regardless of how biased their writings were.

      Thr problem with journalists are that they want to become what they are not ie psychatrists , psychics etc. The best Gothabaya could have done was to slam the phone down as she is not worth responding to . That would have been that simple solution to this headache . Please Gothabaya Sir take note , Never ever grant interviews to the Leader journalists in the future . You are not their scape goat .

      Dr Romesh Senewiratne thinks:

      “It is ridiculous to suggest that Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa is “mentally sick” because someone says he had a knock on the head. “

      Are you suggesting that he is already “mentally sick” even without the knock on his head?

      I can see from this so called doctor his sectarian position. You missuse your profession

      To justify such a regime like this shows your quality. You studied medicine? Which medicine? Where? For how much? In how many days?

        Romesh never misused his position and as a outsider he made his comment. It is well known fact that his dad Brain Seneviratna (the LTTE terra supporter lives in Brisbane Australia) has been misusing the position and helping to raise funds for LTTE terrorists.

    It is true that Gota is more soldier than statesman.

    It is true that he uses much blunter language than most politicians.

    It is true he should NOT be in such frequent contact with the press but should have a press secretary to handle all interviews.

    Efforts to suppress LTTE propaganda is a legitimate tactic in the battle to win hearts and minds.

    The allegations of “whitevanning” and the like are not proven, and LTTE propaganda department is excellent at fabricating so called evidence (eg Channel 4 doctored videos).

    Sri Lanka is not Europe or America. You HAVE to fight dirty to survive. The UN cannot change a culture of brutality in politics dating back more than a Millenium by a resolution. Or a million and one resolutions.

    Gota plays the game AND WINS! Thus there is much animosity towards him among the losers.

      D.G.Dayaratne warns:

      “Gota should be careful.Some people try use his weeekpoints to distroy him”

      You do not need other people to destroy Gota. He does it splendidly by himself.

      Self destruction is in stupid Tamil/Sinhalese gene. I do not expect changes to their genetic structure in the near future.

        I wonder whether Tissa can suggest even one decent individual in the UNP to rival Gota after unabated pure treachery we had to undergo during the past three decades under successive regimes of UNP and Chandrika’s SLFP.
        Gota’s outburst at this journalist woman pales into insignificance when compared to Ranil & CBK’s treachery against the Sinhale (the legitimate name of Sri Lanka when the foreigners colonised it).

          asserts

          that Sinhale is the legitimate name of Sri Lanka when the foreigners colonised it.

          Could you cite your source.

          I take it that Sri Lanka’s legitimate name was Sinhale when the Kallathonies Vijaya and his fellow asylum seeking thugs colonised it.

    Our country was never corrupt.In fact it a blessed country with best soil, the greens,vegetation,mountains,water, lakes, climate, natural beauty etc,etc. Foreign rulers developed it to a great extent. Sad to say ever since Independence some so called politicians who pretended to be patriots have turned it to a criminals paradise.I still wonder the jenes of some politicians are related to wolves.

    It’s always a case of shoot the messenger, I don’t think FJ is much of a journalist however no one in public office has the right to use foul language, after all she is a taxpayer and public officers need to behave in a manner befitting such high office.
    As for Mr Cassi Chetty, by his own admission comes to Sri Lanka once a year, and imagines he is such an authority on the country? Leave your adopted nation and live in Sri Lanka if you think it’s doing so well, why don’t you? Economy is in bad shape, every govt department is running at a loss, high incidence of rape on children and women, murders reported daily, escalating prices, schools and hospitals in worst state ever, nepotism, thugs and goons nominated at election time….need I go on?
    It’s still not too late for the President to change things around by appointing educated and suitable people so the can bring about a change for the better. There is no pride in being a Beggar King.

    The Sri Lankan diaspora, have to wake up to real facts and stop imagining that all is perfect or all is bad. We have our good and bad, and at the moment the bad seems to outweigh the good. Sri Lanka as a country is wonderful but over the years we have been cursed with self serving officials in govt. the diaspora who think all is great should come back to live here and those who think its all bad should stay away and stop supporting terrorism.

    Sri lankans greatest strength is the ability to put up with trials and tribulations and resilience., however these same traits are also what we are cursed with
