If I Become President, I will Put The Current ‘Mess’ On The Right Track – Gotabaya

Sri Lanka’s controversial former Secretary to the Ministry of Defence Gotabaya Rajapaksa has said that ‘many people’ want him to run for the next Presidential Election.

“People living in Sri Lanka and outside the country have asked me to come forward to contest the next Presidential Election,” he said in an interview with the Ceylon Today newspaper.

Citing that the country is today at a standstill, Rajapaksa went on to say that if he becomes President, he will put the current ‘mess’ on the right track. “We are going on reverse, look at the economy and the development. Everything is at a standstill.”

He however added that he has not still decided whether to heed the public’s request to contest the next Presidential Election. “I have not decided yet, but it will depend on the situation and the circumstances. I just cannot plan now. I am not a politician,” he said.

Rajapaksa also claimed that the public opinion today is that there is no leadership in the country. “That’s what many believe. This is not my idea, but theirs. They say there is no one today to lead the people.

They say they don’t know what is happening to this country,” he said.

Rajapaksa added that it was because of ‘them’ that today some Presidents can go to Jaffna and address the public. “We paved the way for that,” he said.

    Of course Gotabaya,

    You will send white vans to pick up any ‘trouble maker’ and make them disappear as you did in Matale mass grave, and in Vani where you killed about 150,000 innocent Tamils – men women and children – to finish the war as as soon as you wanted.

    In Sri Lanka, a criminal against humanity and genocidiare can become president because there is already a precedent in you beloved brother Mahinda.

    Good luck to you and the Sri Lankans who will vote you in.

      Now it is becoming harder for you and your former president brother Mahinda Rajapaksa. Why?

        Tie a muslim to a tree and the 2 of you (Bambre and You) call the frenzy then the election to oust BodhiSira the fox.

        Gotabaya for President because only he can clear the place of dynastic politics.
        LKY ruled with a knuckle duster because its the language asians understand.
        Gotabaya can do it in his style or you will be playing the tune of Bamberes Nondi Vedda, AmbudeSiri,et al. the EU cooperate funded trolls.
        What’s more Trump will put him at ease in doing what he is doing.

        Look how CBK is running after having lied that she received no help from India.- He will know it no sooner because he studied there. The bond scam to pay for election will come to light.
        Without knuckle duster there is no way out of the stagnant pit of death.

          Amal Perera,

          Hahaha!

          You compare LKY the visionary, the man who shunned racism, with paranoid racist nutcase Gota?

          Gota hails from a family of violence that robbed this country.

          Gota is not qualified to be President of Welikada Prisoners’ Union either. Remember the bloody massacre at Welikada prison in broad daylight? In the heart of Colombo.

          Gota’s shameless balls will be crushed in public upon arrival at Welikada by fellow prisoners in revenge.

          Against that background, why do you insist on rubing Gota’s genitals is beyond me. Do you enjoy it? In which case I will cut you some slack.

          Cheers!

          PS: May I remimd you Gota ran away at the height of war on the LTTE. Definition of a coward.

            Even a school drop-outs language mastery does not take a nation anywhere. Neighbour Karunanidhi and Winston Churchill(lost the war)

            Perhaps Gotabaya’s Tamil is better than his English.
            He has learnt his Deccan India lesson and wont fight but evade.

            China is a better bet than India for rapid industrialisation and Indian call centers don’t bring real jobs for the masses where village is 80%.

            But if you are a troublemaker… it’s our job to politically destroy you. Put it this way. As long as JB Jeyaretnam [Workers’ Party leader] stands for what he stands for — a thoroughly destructive force for me — we will knock him. There are two ways of playing this. One, a you attack the policies; two, you attack the system. Jeyaretnam was attacking the system, he brought the Chief Justice into it. If I want to fix you, do I need the Chief Justice to fix you? Everybody knows that in my bag I have a hatchet, and a very sharp one. You take me on, I take my hatchet, we meet in the cul-de-sac. That’s the way I had to survive in the past. That’s the way the communists tackled me. He brought the Chief Justice into the political arena.

            I am often accused of interfering in the private lives of citizens. Yes, if I did not, had I not done that, we wouldn’t be here today. And I say without the slightest remorse, that we wouldn’t be here, we would not have made economic progress, if we had not intervened on very personal matters – who your neighbour is, how you live, the noise you make, how you spit, or what language you use. We decide what is right. Never mind what the people think.

Because the muslims went mad – they are crusaders and will populate.

      This thakkadiya dares to add this way, who would elect him ? Even if rice packet eating folks would support him not many as he utters would never elect him to represent the all folks of the nation.
      Those who will want Whitevanning to be the top of agend would be sure of supporting him.
      I think this man has beenplaying with current regime, because they are not at all serious with the investigations being carried out against those culprits inlcuding this mans.

      I think enough is enough, current regime should make it clear that there is no other option than go rigoursly against Rajapakshe men and their crimes being done during the last 10 years alone.

      Hearing this 10 year old grand son, fearlessly said, if he was president, not that long would be away from going to put all the Rajaakshes in jails for all the high crimes they have deliberately made during the last 5 years alone. According to him, top of them Gotabaya is the most abusive and aggressive person to give BBS and other radical groups a rise during the last few years. He further says, alone that this govt allows Rajapakshes to stay scot free, not doing the due against them going through all the prevailing laws .- is no means comprehensible to him and his class mates. I agree with you my child – but the current regime has made us all that sent Rajaakshes home – are hopeless to this day.

      Gota believes leadership is all about shouting and doing things in such a way that end justifies the means. He breaks all the rules to reach the end and argues what he did was right. It is like driving and getting to a destination on time but breaking all the speed limits on the way, killing a few school kids, arguing it were collaterals. He cannot even comprehend what is wrong and what is right, so were the ones who invite him to contest a Presidential election if what he claims is right.

      What is the mess he was talking about, yes there were some developments done using Chinese borrowings, but that was the only way for Basil to get his percentage. Unfortunately it appears that the current regime doesn’t allow ministers to enjoy such benefits nor was Chinese shady deals. Thinks about how to pay them back, if not these soft loans will be translated into soft power, this is what China has been doing, not for SL in particular but several African and other developing nations. Like with the war, MR was in the right place at the right time to be used by China.

        For that CSN case, and several others they have done the job by a name of their grand ma, why cant lanken auditory offices check this yet ?

        Violence : There’s something definitely going on.^

        The IC or UN is America and America does trust the government you elected.
        proof is Samantha Power flew to Washington on Thursday 28th April and recommended the loan of US $ 1.5 billion giving rise to others from Korea,Japan topping it with another 0.75 billion.-
        she is in love with the land and the Muslim fraternity of Jaffna and this maybe because she cant enter the Synagogue.
        So IC loves Sri Lanka as it is- no love lost and most soldiers are now being drawn into UN Peace keeping. (Samantha has already brought new laws at the UN to repatriate sex offenders because they cant prosecute their own at the moment) Democratic America is run by a Muslim.

      Please CT if you have respect CT readers, please remove the photo of Gota .. we can see him anymore. The harm he deliberately done to this nation is regardless of the ethnic background is known to you and me and even unborn ones.
      Alone BBS and their silence prove us today S context, that the executionist was behind was them. I am no happy with the slow performance of current duo, but they have let alone made silent, babaric pseudo monks leaving us a good sleep. No right thinking ones would ever leave space the kind of men who looted and rooted the nation – a chance …. this should be a joke ..

      I am so fed up of today being unable to see, this men are not yet jailed.

      Not the curse of Kuweni, but something else, should have been the reason them to be scot free yet. Whoever was investigated came out through loow level lanken kind of bailing out – if the situation woudl have been in Germany or UK, SURE, these men would have been kept in jail already at the begining of the new governments term.

      We have to put that man SB too in Jail, he compares Sajith with Basil today. It is like Sky earth … anyways, buggers being inside, make it a whirl so that they can save their bums. All in all these are the third world politics, I thought Pakistan is the worst country in the region being unable to come to a consenses regarding any reforms, but our small island nation seem to score top…. except new UNP energies, I really cant tolerate anyone s politics right at the moment.

        Something is pungent up north.

        When Gotabaya was in there were no Americans redefining and socially engineering.

        The very Americans the Tamils called in are working towards a muslim and catholic north with sinhala only.

        Its the religion partition language known to all invaders especially USA.

        Rajapaksa done it right from majority point of view by ousting USA thinking.

        “I will agree that the Sri Lanka government is good at its diplomacy. For example, six years after the war, former President Rajapaksa managed the International community including India with his bogus promises”- S. V. Kirubaharan – Since 1948.

        you have nothing but stupidity inbred fighting. while the sinhalese and muslims will get along their faith and language.-

        Gotabaya can check muslim because there is no oil but Israel even India and all 3 would be friends without mimicking European English.

The van/jeep culture of extra judicial killings was also not invented by Mr. Clean or the UNP. It was the SLFP coaltion in 1971 that introduced this for the first time when youth were black masked, gagged, sodomized, tortured, shot or burnt alive on pile of tyres. Why not go suck Goata’s ‘privates’, tha suitable rank he should have had in the proud SL-Army that he cowardly deserted to tun of as an illegal alien to the USA.

            “tha suitable rank he should have had in the proud SL-Army that he cowardly deserted to tun of as an illegal alien to the USA. Do I look the ‘alien’ to you douche bags?”

            1. Gota was never been an illegal alien in the USA, according to reliable sources.

            2. Green card was an insurance against JVP, as you would have known USA and UK were heavily involved in the obliteration JVP between 1987 and 1990. Gota and Fonseka did a good job under the guidance of both countries.

            Please correct me if I am wrong.

              not true! He like many army officers received an H1B (skilled worker)
              Even today Siemens USA and many blue chip do not advertise vacancy for fitters but await the return of army.

              you are wrong once again.

                Amal, don’t talk rubbish. Konday badappu Cheenunta over kiayaapun. (Go tell Chinese who knotted their hair). The US immigration cannot issue H1B work visas to anyone without Labour Department approval that trumps US immigration service. Goat the scoundrel went their on a visitor visa and over stayed. No skilled worker is issued with an H1B without employee sponsorship (except US Defense, Military, athletes, special trade, Human Rights category, etc) because the H1B is strictly monitored under annual quota and has immigration criteria to be met by advertising the position in local print media where the employer proves to Labour Department and US Immigration (then called CIS before 911) that no other US citizen is interested or available or qualified to be hired for the advertised job. This was not the case with this scum bag-Gota.If you don’t know, get your damn facts before commenting.

Terror has been the hallmark of Sinhala Buddhist history since time immemorial when savages monarchs ate on human flesh of their own parents or siblings. I you forgetting our own history you proud Sinhalaya? Extra judicial killings by jeep/van abductions were invented not by Mr. Clean or the UNP but by the SLFP coaltion in 1971 that introduced this for the first time when youth were masked, gagged, sodomized, tortured, shot or burnt alive on pile of tyres. Goata is the modern day executioner. Why not go suck Goata’s ‘privates’, the suitable rank in the SL-Army that he deserved before cowardly deserting the ranks before running as illegal alien to the USA. Do I look the ‘alien’ to you douche bags?

      People said even Galagoda Aththe Gnanasara was a doer but he lost the election very badly. Gnanasara’s God father Gotabaya is a well known an Anti-minority racist. The Muslims, Christians and Tamils are dead against him. He will never get a single minority vote. Even the Sinhalese know that he is a killing machine. He can only dream of becoming a President. He should have been behind bars for all the crimes he committed. A few of his creations were Grease Devels, BBS, White vans, etc. By contesting for President, he will not only lose the election but also the American citizenship.

    No shit!!!!

    By “current mess” he must mean the dozens of charges and cases against his kith and kin for murder, kidnapping, fraud, bribery and corruption, etc, etc. And by “the right track”, he probably means that he will reverse all those cases and put the Rajapakses back on the crooked path they were on, ripping off the country and resuming their dastardly deeds.

    These louts have no shame and the sooner the dithering Yahapalanayas stop their interference with the judiciary and let them proceed with their work, the better for us all.

    In the mean time you can give back all the money stolen and also face war crime inquiry like a brave soldier, in a hybrid court and prove your innocence then you would have a better chance of winning. On the other hand you may win even without any of the conditions in wrote because you will be contesting in a sinhale buddhist country.
    Good luck.

    Your brother’s Teflon presidency, permitted you and your brother Basil, to be de-facto presidents in your own spheres. But you missed your chance to put the country on the right track. There is no doubt you have leadership qualities, but you did not put it to good and wise use. There are many areas you did well, but in many more of crucial national , I suspect you led your brother astray. It appears that you lack moral/ ethical scruples- a vital streak in a leader. Your family as whole seem to be lacking this vital element in your make up.

    You stand accused of grave crimes today and have become a much feared person.

    Forget your ambitions. You have no chance to become our president!

        I think you have to answer this and prove yourself. What was your involvement with Mahinda Rajapakse during the time he was the President? Because if you have done of what you have been accused, it is certainly very shameful. I have read the same accusation against you even before.

        If this is true you are no better than Rajapakse and his cronies. When the opportune time you will again go sucking behind him.

        For the education you got you must be able to make you own sensible and correct decisions and be a ‘man’ to stand on your own feet instead of the doctor title’s feet.

          Indeed – you need to and should be able to explain this, unless of course you are far too ashamed now of your erratic past!

          As I have told you many times before in these same columns, everybody makes mistakes, and if you realize and sincerely repent your mistake you can apologize (and of course reimburse the material gain to be used for a good cause). Merely, keeping silent and hoping this will go away is a futile expectation. As the old wisdom goes, you can run, but you can’t hide. Even the former US President learned that the hard way after the Monica Lewinsky incident! But if you want to continue to try running — now four years or so in the running, right? — so be it, as you get called a bum sucker, and your manhood gets challenged by Shrikharan, and more of such to come of course!

          Shrikaran,
          Here is your answer,

          I joined the delegation at the invitation of my student and friend, Dr.Noel Nadesan of Australia. I paid for my air tickets. I stayed at the Mount Lavinia Hitel, although my family was living in Colombo, because the government insisted on it for security reasons connected with LTTE threats. Because I went, I heard and I saw the situation in the Vanni in person, as the war was ending and met many politicians, including President Mahinda Rajapakse.

          The result of that visit and subsequent visits to the Vanni and the East were my many reports on the post-war situation and the following road map I presented to the government and published:

          http://transcurrents.com/tc/2009/05/post_365.html

          I went, I heard, I saw, I formed my impressions and these became the basis of my subsequent stance. What I heard from the people in the Vanni, confirmed my impressions of the LTTE and other Para-military groups. I met the LTTE child cadres in the Ambepussa rehabilitation camp and was shocked. I saw the reality in the IDP camps and was appalled at the nasty propaganda at work abroad. I also saw the extent of the destruction and devastatation and was able to comprehend the enormity of what happened. What I heard directly from the victims of the war and saw in them, taught me the enormity of the human tragedy. I also was able to spell out the reality in my closing remarks at the end of the dialogue with the government in terms the government would not have expected.

          I was also convinced that only the government had the capacity, resources and ability to mobilize resources, to alleviate the suffering of the war-affected in the short, medium and long term.

          I have subsequently lauded the government for what it succeeded in doing in the short and medium term for the war-affected and the North and East. However, I was angry that the MR government miserably failed in achieving long term objectives and used the Tissa Vithana Select Commitee to mislead everyone, including the International Community.

          I am glad I was able to participate in the dialogue you refer and the opportunity it offered to meet a wide array of senior politicians and officials in the South, visit the Vanni and the East and draw my own conclusions. This was a God-sent opportunity, I am glad I did not miss.

            Do you want us to believe you had no idea what Noel Nadesan was upto?

            Why didn’t you write your view points frankly and clearly then?

            Nadesan wrote sme glorifying reports. You did not challenge them.

            Your brother Jeyadevan wrote some glorifying reports. You did not challenge them.

            There were propaganda videos of these trips as Tamil Diaspora supporting the Regime. You did not say a word to stay away from that nonsense.

            You were part of the game, whether you were a willing participant. By not writing the disclaimers you should be taken as a complicit.

            Can you forward the articles, at least the links, where you wrote about what you claim what you thought about the situation (it would be nice if you could provide your earliest articles).

            What do you think about Noel Nadesan now? He still thins Mahinda was the best thing that happened to Tamils.

            Not so fast Rajasingham,

            “I did it because he (Noel) told me to” excuse is worthy of no more than a school-boy!

            As an educated, mature adult, did you find out how Noel came about with the responsibility to recruit delegates? Can you give some objective description why the Government would spend its limited foreign exchange in hosting foreign residents, while the country was desperately begging around the World to feed its war affected?

            The only logical explanation is that the State was looking for “gullibles and greedies” among the Tamil professional whose very visible support could be used to hoodwink and milk the internationals. And so, while you were under the impression you were getting a first-hand peep into on-the-ground reality, were you not just being taken for a “ride” (yes, in more sense than one!) of a fine theatrics pre-planned by Gota?

            If that is not the case, could you detail the purpose of the delegation, detail how exactly you qualified as a worthy delegate? Was it just you two in that delegation that you are so proud to have been a part of? If there were more, could you name them? After all, they should be equally proud of that “nobel” venture too and should have no reservations in getting named, right?

            You once wrote that MR has already delivered 75% of what he had promised the Tamils. Do you not remember, several months after your initial veneration of the regime, you yourself wrote in these columns to the effect “now, even the worst of fools have realized that Rajapakse’s cannot be trusted”?!

            (Incidentally, do you have any records — name, age, and any other traceable info — of the children that you met at Ambepussa? Can you not make available that info which may help some parents still searching for the “missing”?)

            You have resisted relentlessly for five years or more in providing any details on your and MR’s agendas behind your trip. It has been a monumental task extracting that info, and it is indeed your need to be secretive – it is that silence — that speaks volumes.

            You can be forthright at least now. If drilling and shaming is what it takes, so be it!

            Ah, lastly, on that painfully detailed Road Map of yours that you thought fit to refer to, there is only one observation I have. You take yourself far too seriously for your own good. Can you tell us one discussion, one committee meeting or any such where your proposal was tabled and discussed with any seriousness? Is it the regime’s gross disregard and dismissal of your “brain child” that finally resulted in your fury? Did that fury get recycled as TNA, Sumanthiran and even Wiggy progressively gave just the same reception to you as MR did? Or poor you!!

            You can invoke as many toothless [Edited out] as you like, hoping they would somehow, sometime morph into Rottweiler’s – one resorts to such despicable attempts only when one lacks legitimate defense!

      Rajasingham,

      How disingenuous can you get? You want to now rush to distance yourself, every opportunity you get, only because of your unshakable shame and guilt of your own past.

      You begged a hand-out from this Teflon regime and served as a servile spokesperson for them when the going was good, just for the handful of crumbs they threw at you – didn’t you?! And, as pay back, you asked the Diaspora to divert their family remittances to this same Teflon regime, and further you vigourously castigated the Diaspora for bringing the war-crime issue to the international front.

      If you have even an iota of sincerity or integrity, you would first explicitly show remorse for your own avarice-induced blunders that provided the support and the buffer for the regime to continue with its atrocities.

      It is funny that you would now write “You stand accused of grave crimes TODAY.” Gota and the whole regime stood accused of grave crimes against humanity, not just today, but from day-one after Mullivaikal, if not earlier. It is you who relentlessly condemned the Diaspora for making that same accusation from that day forward. What a load of buffaloe-excreta you turned out to be!!

What you have overlooked is you have to get past MR,BR and NR as well as Shiranthi akka!! To even think about it. It may al be the RRR family has agreed to hand over to you as they may be having less cases! If you take over (count the people replying in support of you and give a guess on your popularity!) I suppose John Senevirate has been bought to support you at party meetings!
    IF you become president in the midst of your manic delusions, you will kill the good bad and the ugly since you are not secure in mind! You will pawn the country, just like your Bro with loans get your brothers and cronies (with your cut) to put up mega projects on the borrowed money so that people will forget theor worries, encourage cronies like Dummi (sudu as your wife calls him) Putha. Of course we all know of the Gold bar he gave your son for the wedding!! We also know how you gave orders to the police when he got caught with kudu! We also know how your brother landed by helicopter in Lanzi putja’s land in Negombo when authorities surrounded the land to arrest him with loot! Of course the drugged youth will forget problems just like what the British did in China by introducing opium! The any trouble makers will be dumped in mid sea like ekneligoda and hoardes of others! In short in the midst of your grandiose delusions you are not accountable to anyone! Pl see a psychiatrist before nominations!!

    You name Gothabaya and all the LTTE sympathizers come out in force to say something good about the man. You see that on CT time after time. Only MR can rival Gotha in that.

    A recent opinion poll done IPOs reuter had gotabayah on a hypothetical matchup against various candidates
    Vs sirisena 49-47
    Vs ranil 51-42
    Vs ganesan 49-41
    Vs Fonseca 49-45
    Vs swaminathan 47-44
    Vs harsh de Silva 50-43
    thus this poll highlights that sirisena is the best option for prez to run against gita. Any other candidate particular the pm would be disastrous if election were held today. The only other candidates who have a chance are Fonseca and swaminathan
    Vs

    “If I Become President, I will Put The Current ‘Mess’ On The Right Track – Gotabay”

    or make it a bigger mess for my successor to clean up.with me you know one way or other things will move fast.

    great that he admits that he handed over a mess for maithri and ranil to clean up.earlier he used to say everything is nice and clean and no need for anyone to poke their nose into our affairs.Belatedly it has dawned on him after the Un resolution that indeed t is a mess.Now what he is saying is he will set the direction of the mess towards cuba,which has a hundred of UN resoluions against it.people of srilanka will have to decide whether they would like to become a cuba under gota,or a westernised democracy under maitri and ranil.

    What an [Edited out]. Keep dreaming dumbwit. The people are not that stupid to vote an imbecile like you as president. Become president and then give an amnesty to all your brothers and nephews. Hope you will have the time to organise your campaign from jail.

    Don’t get agitated, folks. this is only feeler put forward by the ex foreign Secy. to test the waters to check whether the voters will accept Rajapakses in the society, again.
    Anything can happen as the money and political thuggery talk in this country. People lye low and they vote for the “Man” and not for the
    policies of a political party, as a practice. If his wish becomes a
    reality, there be an exodus of people, specially the minorities,like
    what happens in Syria and other volatile middle east countires.

    God save the people!
