Gotabaya Offers To Rescue Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka’s controversial former secretary to the ministry of defence Gotabaya Rajapaksa has come forward to help rescue the country from its current administration.

Addressing Sri Lankans living in Japan via Skype, Gotabaya yesterday said that, “if mistakes were made we should learn from them and help Sri Lanka recover from its current fallen state, and I am happy to help rescue this country,” he told the forum.

He also denied any connections with the Bodu Bala Sena, saying it was due to these false rumours that his brother, former President Mahinda Rajapaksa lost the election as Muslims voted against him.

“I can categorically state that neither did Mahinda Rajapaksa, the government or I worked in any way to bring injustice to the Muslims and Tamils in Sri Lanka,” said Rajapaksa, who takes credit for the war win against the LTTE and also have been embroiled in the white van abduction saga.
