Gota ‘Well Enough’ To Enter The Presidential Race But Not To Appear Before Court

A mainstream Sinhala language daily today carried in its front page, a story quoting Gotabaya Rajapaksa currently in Singapore allegedly recovering from his heart surgery. The headline read “I am well now: Will be ready for Presidential election as soon as I return to Sri Lanka”.

Gotabaya is said to have gone through an Open Heart surgery in Singapore was ‘mandated a six week rest period’ following the procedure. This was stated by PC Ali Sabry when his client was a no-show at the first hearing of the D A Rajapaksa Museum trial on June 19th.

Given Gotabaya’s health has failed him to a level that he cannot even fly to Sri Lanka before the end of the six week period, it is confusing as to how he will enter and keep up with the stress of being at the center of a presidential race.

He had told the MP delegation led by Prasanna Ranatunga who visited him in Singapore, that he will not back down and will face any challenge.

The Court granted permission for Gota to travel overseas for medical treatment with effect from May 24 until June 2.

However, through a special motion filed by PC Sabry on June 3, the Court was informed his client was unable to return to Sri Lanka as mandated by the Court, due to having undergone heart surgery in Singapore.

      If America has not set him free yet as he is no longer an american citizen. He will not be able to contest the election.
      Whoever whatever being said and done, all of them would die down as their 52-day fake govt architected putting former BP Rajakashe as the Fake Premier. Remember guys ?
      His nemesis in lanken soil is even more clearer than anything else. This BP is the most powerful criminal, came into being under his brother authoritarian rule.

        US citizen Gota who organized the Avant Guard scam to asset strip the SL Navy and US puppet Bondscam Ranil are 2 sides of the same coin with Tilak Marapona as the go between:
        What has happened to the Avant Guard investigations?
        Gota and Ranil are both part of the US brokered bi-partisan UNP-SLFP Corruption racket set up with USAID and MCC funds in the name of Fake RECONCILIATION and peace building to turn SL Parliament into Cesspit of corruption, impunity, immunity and Parliamentary Priviledge for corrupt politician to loot the country and turn it into a US military base..
        This corruption racket is now run by Prasad Kariayawasam to sell SOFA and the MCC Fake development aid compact.

      First of all why did the court permit Gota to proceed to Singapore to have the heart operation? Is he not the managing director of Colombo Hospitals Ltd. which is reputed to be as good as any in Singapore manned by very able competent doctors who are all GMOA members?

      My vote is for Gota.

      He is the only Rajapakse who doesn’t wear that red thingy around his neck ………… he is different from all the other Rajapakses.

      Dunno what the red thingy signifies but going by the record, it can’t be anything good ……….. sooo ol’ Gota is the only genuine Rajapakse. What you see is what you get.

      Hope this time around he’ll be able to kill half the population ……… and send 50% of the rest to live in France.

      Just think what it’ll do to the traffic jams! ……….. Not just in Colombo but even in places like Yala!

      Gotta think outside the box ………. straight thinking in Lanka never work.

        Yes he may sort the traffic jams and make pretty walkways. He will discipline everybody so they will be In a army regiment. Great! Minorities will be told to behave or get out. Shut up or get out. The brothers Pakshas will rule for ever in turns. Only they know the art of ruling. White van theory. We need to be brought to our knees by him.

        May be Gota is the guy who can clean up the land of the Paras, deport the Paras, and let it get back to the pristine state it was before the illegal arrival of the Paras and Para-Buddhism.

    Gota,

    Are you well enough to live?

    Have you been repaired well?

    One thing is guaranteed. Sooner or later you will die, just the same way your victims have died, irrespective of whatever the Paras, mean IQ 79, believe about rebirth, heaven , Purgatory, Hell etc.

      Amarasiri,
      ‘Para’ in Sinhala means ‘Foreign’ e.g. ‘Para Sudda’, ‘Para Demalu’. Sinhalayo are not foreign to this Island.
      Prof. Raj Somadeva’s path breaking archeological research have shown with solid evidences that Sinhalayo evolved in Sinhale from Homo Sapiens lived in this country 125,000 BP confirmed by OSL method. This evidence was found in Pathirajawela in Hambantota District. His conclusion is both Sinhalayo and Vedda Eththo are native people in this island. DNA of Sinhalayo and Vedda Eththo are very close. He also has found evidences to prove that Sinhala language evolved in this country.

          Ajith,

          Para-Sinhalayo and Para-Demalo are from Bharat, India per mitochondrial DNA studies of Para-Sinhalayo, Para-Denali and Native Veddah Aethho, published in Nature Genetics.

          Even the Para-Sinhala chronicles, Mahawansa and Deepawansa, for whatever it is worth, claims that the Sinhala and Denali are Paras , strangers, foreigners to the land of Native Veddah Aethho.

            Amarasiri,
            The research you referred Ranaweera, Lanka; Kaewsutthi, Supannee; Win Tun, Aung; Boonyarit, Hathaichanoke; Poolsuwan, Samerchai; Lertrit, Patcharee (2014). “Mitochondrial DNA history of Sri Lankan ethnic people: Their relations within the island and with the Indian subcontinental populations”. Journal of Human Genetics. 59(1): 28–36 to say DNA of Sinhalayo are closer to Indians concluded that:
            “No definite association of the Sinhalese with any specific ethnic or linguistic groups of India was, however, detected in this study; thus, their exact immediate origin on the mainland remains yet to be confirmed.”
            So how the hell you keep on saying “genetic studies from mitochondrial DNA have conclusively shown that they are Paras from their Para Homeland, Bharat , India.”
            Prof. Raj Somadeva’s archeological research have conclusively shown that Sinhalayo and Vedda Eththo evolved from Homo Sapiens who lived in this country 125,000 years ago. Go and watch those Youtube Videos I mentioned in my earlier comment.

            If your pay cheque depends on chanting the Mantra ‘Para Sinhala’, ‘Para Sinhala’, ‘Para Sinhala’, please go ahead. That will not change the history of Sinhalayo.

              Eagle Eye,

              Amarasiri is after the truth, a free thinker, and is NOT paid by anybody, and busts myths and lies, and lets the truth stand.

              No association with any specific ethnicity or linguistic groups, are cultural associations. However, they have been separated for about 2500 years or more, and the association is in the composition of the Para/ Sinhala that comprises 40 percent Tamil from South India and most of the balance from both Eastern India such as Prakrit.

              Furthermore, the Mitochondrial DNA that comes from the mothers, and the variations in the mitochondrial DNA, is definitive proof that the Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamils are separate. Why separate? Ask Prof Raj.

              At an earlier time, the Para-Professor Ediriweera Sarathchndra, promoted the Lion race, based on Deepawansa and Mahawansa, which all got busted by modern genetics. See Sinhabahu play.
              Prof. Raj hypothesis is also getting busted, but some if the low IQ Para-Sinhala is buying it.

              By the way the Homo Sapiens left Africa between. 70,000 and 100,000years ago, and did not appear in the Land of Native Veddah Aethho 125,000 years ago, suddenly.

              Why are the mtDNA clusters different for Native Veddah Aethho and the Paras? Why are the mtDNA of the Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamils similar? Why do the Para-Sinhala looks similar to the Bengalisand South Indians?

              There were Greeks who said that the Earth was stationary and the Sun went around the Earth. The Bible , Joshua,, stopped the Sun for 24 hours.The Catholic Church picked up and finally discarded recently. They were all busted by modern astronomy, courtesy of Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler and Newton.

              Just like, the Prof, there is a group in America called creation “scientists”, called intelligent designers, for religious reasons, who claim that Darwinian Evolution is incorrect. They even gave a museum.
              Hitler that the Aryan Theory, of the Germanic race. Many, depending on their brainwashings, IQ and Intellect fell for that.

                Eeekel Guy, there is another study on DNA of Sri Lanka population carried out by Colombo Medical Faculty genetics department under Prof. Rohan Jayasekera et al with Newcastle university which came to the same conclusion that core genetic material of Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims is south Indian. Are you aware that genetically the closest ethnic group to Sinhalese in the world are Ceylon Tamils, not even Indian Tamils, leave alone any other Indian race. This is why the conclusion says that no definite association of the Sinhalese with any specific ethnic or linguistic groups of India was detected. The original people of Sri Lanka are dark skinned and any one who has lighter skin is a foreigner. Prof Somadeva in his racist frenzy is only making a fool of himself. Recently in the Mannar excavations he conclusively proved that 600 years ago Sinhalayo ate Maliban biscuits.

              Eagle Eye, Continued,

              While Amarasiri agrees with Prof Raj’s historical narrative, but his linkage of the Veddah Ancestors to Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamils is untenable.

              The 125,000 year date is highly questionable. It has to be less than 100,000 years or less. See below, another study om the mt DNA.

              https://www.researchgate.net/publication/277975417_A_study_of_genetic_polymorphisms_in_mitochondrial_DNA_hypervariable_regions_I_and_II_of_the_five_major_ethnic_groups_and_Vedda_population_in_Sri_Lanka

              Diversity of the hypervariable regions (HV) I and II of the mitochondrial genome was studied in maternally unrelated Sri Lankans (N=202) from six ethnic groups (i.e.: Sinhalese, Sri Lankan Tamil, Muslim, Malay, Indian Tamil and Vedda). DNA was extracted from blood and buccal swabs and HVI and HVII regions were PCR amplified and sequenced. Resulting sequences were aligned and edited between 16024-16365 and 73-340 regions and compared with revised Cambridge reference sequences (rCRS). One hundred and thirty-five unique haplotypes and 22 shared haplotypes were observed. A total of 145 polymorphic sites and 158 polymorphisms were observed. Hypervariable region I showed a higher polymorphic variation than hypervariable region II. Nucleotide diversities were quite low and similar for all ethnicities apart from a slightly higher value for Indian Tamils and a much lower value for the Vedda population compared to the other groups.

              When the total population was considered South Asian (Indian) haplogroups were predominant, but there were differences in the distribution of phylo-geographical haplogroups between ethnic groups. Sinhalese, Sri Lankan Tamil and Vedda populations had a considerable presence of West Eurasian haplogroups.

              About 2/3rd of the Vedda population comprised of macro-haplogroup N or its subclades R and U, whereas macro-haplogroup M was predominant in all other populations.

              The Vedda population clustered separately from other groups and Sri Lankan Tamils showed a closer genetic affiliation to Sinhalese than to Indian Tamils. Thus this study provides useful information for forensic analysis and anthropological studies of Sri Lankans.

              Eagle Eye,

              Does Prof. Raj Somadev know sufficient science?

              Listened to his two videos for about 4 hours. While, in general agreement with what he says, but his linkage of the early man in the land with Para-Sinhala is not correct. They were the ancestors of the Native Veddah Aethho.

              Looks like he is not trained in the scientific fields and seem to have missed the point on mt DNA. He was making the statement that the Sun would run out of helium and would burn out in 2300 years. His knowledge of nuclear fusion is poor.

              The audience, mean IQ 79, either did not catch this or did not have the intellect to think these through. Before the legendary arrival of Vijaya, there were people. They were South Indians, from whom the Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamils originated. Based on mtDNA studies, there is considerable supportable data to the statement. “Para-Sinhala are Para-Tamils, and Para-Tamils are Para-Sinhala” ,

              The Native Veddah Aethho were there before the Paras arrived.

              https://www.researchgate.net/publication/277975417_A_study_of_genetic_polymorphisms_in_mitochondrial_DNA_hypervariable_regions_I_and_II_of_the_five_major_ethnic_groups_and_Vedda_population_in_Sri_Lanka

              About 2/3rd of the Vedda population comprised of macro-haplogroup N or its subclades R and U, whereas macro-haplogroup M was predominant in all other populations. The Vedda population clustered separately from other groups and Sri Lankan Tamils showed a closer genetic affiliation to Sinhalese than to Indian Tamils. Thus this study provides useful information for forensic analysis and anthropological studies of Sri Lankans.

          “Go back to to whence your ancestors came.”
          Sinhalayo do not have to go anywhere because our ancestors are from this island. ‘Para Demalu’, ‘Para Muslims’ and ‘Para Malays’ can go back to the countries from where their ancestors hailed if they wished to do so. Sinhalayo did not invite any of these ‘Para’ people to the Land of Sinhalayo and Vedda Eththo’.

        Eagle Eye,

        Thanks for the link.

        What Prof. Raj Somadeva presentation, is an attempt to link the Migrations, Colonization, and genetics of Native Veddah Aethho, to the Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamils.

        Unfortunately, all his evidence is the evidence of the ancestors of Native Veddah Aethho and NOT that of Para-Sinhala Para-Tamils. See Journal of Human Genetics volume 59, pages 28–36 (2014).
        All are ancestors of Native Veddah Aethho, and NOT ancestors of Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamils.

        Any coincidence in the genetics, is due to the Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamils, raping or marrying the Native Veddah Aethho women.

        From the phylogenetic, principal coordinate and analysis of molecular variance results, the Vedda occupied a position separated from all other ethnic people of the island, who formed relatively close affiliations among themselves, suggesting a separate origin of the former.

        This study, in which 271 individuals, representing the Sri Lankan ethnic populations mentioned, were typed for their mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) hypervariable segment 1 (HVS-1) and part of hypervariable segment 2 (HVS-2), provides implications for their settlement history on the island.

        The haplotypes and analysis of molecular variance revealed that Vedda people’s mitochondrial sequences are more related to the Sinhalese and Sri Lankan Tamils’ than the Indian Tamils’ sequences.

        MtDNA haplogroup analysis revealed that several West Eurasian haplogroups as well as Indian-specific mtDNA clades were found amongst the Sri Lankan populations.

        Through a comparison with the mtDNA HVS-1 and part of HVS-2 of Indian database, both Tamils and Sinhalese clusters were affiliated with Indian subcontinent populations than Vedda people who are believed to be the native population of the island of Sri Lanka.

          The research you referred Ranaweera, Lanka; Kaewsutthi, Supannee; Win Tun, Aung; Boonyarit, Hathaichanoke; Poolsuwan, Samerchai; Lertrit, Patcharee (2014). “Mitochondrial DNA history of Sri Lankan ethnic people: Their relations within the island and with the Indian subcontinental populations”. Journal of Human Genetics. 59(1): 28–36 to say DNA of Sinhalayo are closer to Indians concluded that:
          “No definite association of the Sinhalese with any specific ethnic or linguistic groups of India was, however, detected in this study; thus, their exact immediate origin on the mainland remains yet to be confirmed.”
          So how can you make statements like “genetic studies from mitochondrial DNA have conclusively shown that they are Paras from their Para Homeland, Bharat , India.”
          Prof. Raj Somadeva’s archeological research have conclusively shown that Sinhalayo and Vedda Eththo evolved from Homo Sapiens who lived in this country 125,000 years ago.

        Eagle Eye,
        Why do you get so exited about this meaningless racial issue when the S/B dominance in SL is an unequivocal fact? There is no reason to go into Raj Somadeva’s history lectures to learn the obvious fact. History, of course, is very interesting b’cos it, if studied properly, tells us how things came to be over time but, it is important to learn the fact that history is a poor guide to resolve modern issues. For example, S/B is the dominant race both historically & numerically but, under modern democratic socio-political values, such a fact cannot be used to deny HR of any individual who may have become a legal citizen just yesterday. That is also the message of Raj, if I understand him correct.
        One more point about Raj”s methodology: It appears that he understand the difference between old method of linear progressive approach (ladder) vs “bush” approach which was first introduce to historical sciences by Evolutionary biologist named Steven J Gould in 1977. However, Raj’s narrative seems to follow the linear progress approach he says don’t agree with. I’m not suggesting that his narrative of SL history is wrong; rather, I suspect that he has ignored at least two other possibilities of cultural change: 1. Ethnic continuity with cultural change influenced by outside; and 2. Changes in both in waves. The archaeological Raj presents can be used to prove all three models with equal trength!

          We are not talking about denying HR to people who have become citizens of this country. We are against these people keep on blaming that majority Sinhalayo are discriminating them, demanding a separate State, denying Sinhala people’s right to live in the North by saying ‘Sinhalayo are not welcome in the North, destroying Sinhala Buddhist heritage sites in the North and East and carrying out propaganda to tarnish the image of Sinhalayo and Sri Lanka.

          I raised this question several times in this forum but so far no one has given an acceptable response.
          ‘What is it that the Sinhalayo are enjoying that the other communities are not enjoying because they are not Sinhala?’

    I understand today’s rally in Nugegoda is for Gotabhaya.
    Not a single speaker voiced their opinion against ACSA/SOFA/VFA (so far).
    Instead, they are shamefully trying to (mis)use the unity of Sinhalese Buddhists in favour of Gotabhaya.
    Who united Sihalese Buddhists? Surely not them.
    Today, the whole purpose of this rally should have been against agreements scheduled to be signed with the USA at the expense of Sri Lanka’s sovereignty and independence.
    Instead, they are talking about something called Wahabism..
    The pressing matter right in front of us is NOT Wahabism, for it could easily be controlled, if not eliminated with a few signatures.
    On the other hand, how could they talk against USA when their candidate is the man who signed ACSA in 2007?
    What guarantee is there that Gotabhaya will not sign a previously failed SOFA/VFA with the US in the future, IF he comes into power?
    Fortunate for Sri Lanka, Gotabhaya is not the next President. There is no way a man who has no principles will become the next President.

      Champi:
      You got that right. Gota is actually an agent of US Neo-Cons who are conspiring to turn Sri Lanka into their base in their frenzied efforts to contain China’s growing threat in the region. They see him as the ideal candidate to achieve their strategic objectives in Sri Lanka: he has the necessary posturing to dupe the Sinhala-Buddhist voters, and his legal problems over war crimes and human rights violations, and the murders of Thajudeen and Lasantha, white van abductions, and financial crimes such as Avant Garde, and Rajapaksa Museum offer them the perfect leverage to keep him in line.

    Well, the answer to the question whether evading justice is a good or a bad strategy depends on who the question to be put. The loyalists would insist that GoRa is as innocent as a newborn baby; and that all the allegations of kidnapping, torture & killings are nothing but politically motivated character assassinations while the others including me strongly believe that he is guilty as charged; that his mental instability caused by so far untreated mental decease known as the “bipolar syndrome” is the reason behind the criminal behavior; and that such character makes him unqualified to hold even a post Grama Sevaka, let alone to be a president! The loyalist fail to notice the logical hole in their denial: The claim that MaRa/GoRa had the most efficient national security system. If it is true, then all the high-profile cases of kidnappings, torture & killings must have been part of their own security system!
    In any case, it will be interesting to see how much the notion of “fake patriotism” can push him beyond the “Odious Spectre” of Kumara Welgama!

    “I am well now. I will be ready for Presidential election as soon as I return to Sri Lanka” He has now been given that “Breath of Life”, because the AG has promised to “Amend” the charges that were been scheduled to inquire into by the Special Courts that granted him leave to Singapore. In how many “Months” he (AG) would do that and in how many more “Months” the Special Courts will begin the “Inquiry” For how “LONG” this case was “MADE” to drag by the Prosecution, the Courts and all that on the “Back Room ” manipulations by the “Black Coat Mafia”. Are the PEOPLE aware and most importantly made to know these “Manipulations” very well planned and executed in “PRECISION” by a “MAFIA CONGLOMERATE” ?

    Sri Lanka may be the only country in the world where majority native community has to work according to the whims and fancies of two sets of minorities. The first consist of the descendants of slaves brought to this country by Portuguese, Dutch and British colonial rulers from Malabar and the second, descendants of Muslims who came to this country as traders and who were given refuge when they faced slaughter by Portuguese rulers. For example:
    • When Sinhala which has been the official language until British changed it to English was made the official language after colonial rule ended, Demalu demanded Demala language also should be recognized as an official language. Majority agreed.
    • When the Government introduced the Sinhala letter ‘Sree’ to car number plates, Demalu opposed. So ‘Sree’ was removed and letters of ‘Para Sudda’ were introduced. Demalu had no problem with the letters of ‘Para Sudda’. What an unpatriotic bunch.
    • When Demalu said they want to sing the National Anthem in Demala, Sinhalayo agreed.
    • When Demalu said they want to keep ‘Thesawalamei’ which is a Malabari customary law brought to this country by slaves, Sinhalayo agreed.
    • When Muslims said they want Shariah Law, Sinhalayo agreed.
    • When Muslims said they want ‘Madrasas’, Sinhalayo agreed.
    • When the President said 19th Amendment should be scrapped, TNA and Muslim Congress politicians say they want it and Sinhalayo will allow them to keep it.

      EAGLE EYE: Maithripala and Sinhala buddhist politicians MUST think that it is again the LTTE war but in a different battle ground. Those who forget this reality should be abandoned.
      What USA doing is all looking after their interests at the expense of the people of the little island Sri lanka. Most politicians, e.g. PENT HOUSE, talk about sri lanka but busy plundering the country.
      These days, Ranil is education minister. says he is opening 100s of building the Closest school is the best school. He does not talk about why everyday International schools are opened. Why school children can not pass exams without going to number of tuition classes every day. IF schools are not that important why do not they subsidize tuition classes and International schools. So, every one can go. Politicians say, now they have 13 grades. Earlier also, we had Pahala and Ihala Balanshaya plus tweleve grades which is fourteen years. Now they have Montessori school and 13 grades but they eliminated grade 10. It is just eliminating British system and introducing american system. DO NOT VOTE RANIL OR UNP.
      Ranil and UNP destroyed Sri lanka only with 42 seats total.

        Sinhalayo are definitely not ‘Para’ people in this country. They evolved in this country, developed a unique language, culture, customs and developed the economy of this country. If you do not have enough brain capacity to understand the validity of Prof. Somadeva’s findings, there is nothing we can do. Keep on chanting the Mantra ‘Para Sinhalayo’, ‘Para Sinhalayo’, ‘Para Sinhalayo’,

    New King said the Leader Pirabha sold drug to feed the boys. TNA, CV, Viyalendran, Sumanthiran, Fonseka……. condemn it…. even Karuna few days ago said he would not accept disgracing Leader Pirabha. But none of the Diaspora Organization these days look at Lanakwe newspapers. They discount it as “what is there, it is all about local news”. So they has nothing to say about that because they all are busy about in their own way of making money. God Bless these Great People.

    In Sri Lanka it has become the habit of alleged law breakers to enter hospitals for various reasons. Who is footing the bills? Gotabaya, Jasundera and Hemasiri are the case in point. Aren’t they man enough to face the Justice. What a pathetic lot and not suited for any high office.
    Hope Sri Lankans do not make a blunder by going behind Gotabaya. He is definitely not the Lee Kwan Yu, Sri Lanka is after.

    It looks like the CT is unintentionally promoting Gota as the next Presidential candidate. When Sinhalese people along with moderate Tamils and Muslims see the number of illogical and baseless negative comments from some familiar ‘daily comment writers’ , many Sri Lankans think that Gota is the ‘right guy’ to handle the burning issues faced by majority Sri Lankans today.
    Why do I say this?
    When Gota was handling the Tiger issue many criticized him but he did the job. Today innocent people get massacred but there is nobody to take responsibility.
    When Gota was cleaning Colombo, many criticized him but he did the job.Today people get killed under Garbage mountains that fall on them but there is nobody to take responsibility. What happened to that Colombo that won the best city prize.
    Almost all ‘negative’ comment writers supported this lunatic government in 2015 and now they are divided between My3 and RW camps; the innocent Sri Lankans have become the victims since they listened to these myopic writers.
    I don’t know what these comment writers want from Sri Lanka. Can at least one of them explain in details what they (living mostly abroad) want from Sri Lanka?
    Why don’t you live (abroad) and let them live (in Sri Lanka)?

    Gotler has changed tactics and is aiming for the sympathy vote. He is supposed to have had open heart surgery (I didn’t know he had a heart) conveniently coinciding with the first hearing of the D A Rajapaksa Museum trial on June 19th. I can sense his acolytes whipping up the gullible and emotional vote base already.

    IF he is permitted to contest the Presidential election, he will start the campaign rounds with his ‘frail heart’ and the chances of a dramatic heart attack most probably on a stage, are very real. With the sympathy vote in his favour Gotler will be singing his way to the Presidential chair.

    Question is do you want a president who has no backbone to even appear for a court hearing?
    ..
    Running away from problems is something he is quite use to from the past.
    ..
    He first ran away from trouble and sold the name of Sri Lanka to get his refuge visa.
    ..
    Now he sold assets of Lanka and running away with our money.
    ..
    Still some people are crying out for him. What a beautiful nation we have? I wonder are they crying out for their own gains or for the nation?

    Open heart surgery is routine in SL. Gotabaya could have had it done it here but opted Singapore.
    In Singapore, GR is meditating in its highest form. He opens his heart and meditates for six weeks.

    Gota should have gone for heart transplant of a Tamil Man So that his attitude will change against Tamils He very patriotic that is why he did his heart surgery in Singapore but not in Sri Lanka There are 10 cases filed against him filed in the US and more to come. Hence he will not be released until cases are investigated and the verdict is given This may take more than a year. He will not be released from US citizenship. Which means he can not contest for President’s position
