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.

      Alone to these Raajapkse to allow making the kind of statements about the srilanken future is beyond all bearing.

      Got would be a match as president for rice packet eating folks, but all others will say, send him to jail and heal our wounds.

        It is like they are not taking it serious.

        Who would ever like Rajaakshe to return and continue the torture politics ?

        Only those vulnerable head nodding folks that are under poverty can easily be cheatable but others for sure not.

        Lanken press is caught by Rajaakshe mafia so that they can consolidate their powers – Journos – negitiyaw………………negitiyaw………………negitiyaw………………negitiyaw………………negitiyaw………………negitiyaw………………negitiyaw………………negitiyaw………………

      We are hurt as if wounds are further being hurt to this day. If my mother would have been live, she could say, we have now been betrayed by Good governance. Nothing is achieved to this day.

      Today this morning I happened to watch Rohitha Abeygundawardahana is believed to have abused billions of state funds under the lead of MR REGIME to have joined MR s recent trip to Japan…
      In any powerful and decent govet should have the guts to block any of these culprits to leave beyond the country since all these 4 are undoubtely high criminals to anyone who is sane to judge it.

    Psychopath is an appropriate description for Gota. A cold blooded exterminator who sees humans as statistics.

    He should be praying to avoid jail, but has such a low regard for the Sri Lankan citizen that he can dream of being president let alone be free.

    I know his type well, he is a selfish, heartless, monster who is so self absorbed and bigoted.

    It is because of people like this that wars get started, if anyone wishes himself well he should not wish a bastard like Gota onto others as a leader. You will live to regret that wish.

    Reading through the comments in CT, it looks like they are against you Mr Gotabaya. But they are like this but once you put your name down as a possible candidate I am sure they will turn around. I am sure people like Malinda , Dayan, Mahindapala and even Izeth Hussein( beware he is [Edited out]) will back you if you are prepared to spare some cash..
    You are the only hope to save Srilanka from the impending perils of ISIS.
    But you have to be careful about who are going to be in your team. Good luck ( shall I say mate better not)
    I know you will clear the mess( created by your impotent brother)and put the country to prosper, get rid of all the unwanted people( bus them out to the jungle or even to graves as they do in China, you did try that once to clear Colombo but had to given to your brother that was unfortunate; Make sure this time you get rid of thr thambis and thusmis out of you hair)

        Thank you mohammed for giving me the privilege of being the first to catch the free bus. It is very unusual gesture from a ISIS jihadist to make such an offer. Normally anything free is theirs to take first. Now your brothers have murdered 50 innocent gay people in the pub in orlando while they were enjoying a pint. Why just because they were gay, and Allah wouldn’t accept gay people according to you. Did you know that young syrians men who went to Europe as refugees were detained in Greece were engaged in prostitution. Poor boys have to satisfy old men just for a few euros.Is thr allowed ?
        Srilanka must be saved from you guys and IMO gota is the man for it.
        Whats wrong me having an opinion is that not allowed in quran?

      “Make sure this time you get rid of thr thambis and thusmis out of you hair”

      Yes, he has to eliminate all the minorities and almost half the population if he has to continue as President. Hitler, Pol Pot, Idi Amin and so on will be nowhere when compared to Gota.

    Hello Mr Gotabaya
    Go for it man
    We are all behind you.
    You, in my opinion, are the best man to lead Srilanka out of this doldrum.
    I am writing from ukraine, there are quiet a few of us who would be telling our families back home to support your candidature if you decide to run for the presidency.
    Im sure you have enough people to support you but remember to run under SLFP, try to kick out the dumb srisena. It is important you run under SLFP , your brother got 5 million plus votes that vote bank should be used. Get a good team to back you up, Dayan is a good choice, IMO. Dont trust people like Izeth Hussein and his elks they are dangerous, I know , you know them very well they will switch side at the drop of a hat!!!!

    Trouble is, current Gosl hasn’t a clue about how the so called masses(some say low IQ) should be whipped up.

    They are trying to uplift and uplift the common man with all kinds of Western and Colonial things, but the Common Man (of all races), needs to be tackled at a different quotient to make the country functionable (IQ being very subjective).

    And this chap Gota, has that common touch. I believe that even the Tamil masses trust him (even if they are angry with him somewhat). Mahinda was all for adoration of the Masses. But Gota doesn’t give a damn tice, and will work quite diligently.

    Will Batalanda Ranil now re arrange his priority list, and demand the hired President that he abolish himself as he promised in the MOU before the Election?.

    And let Batalanada Ranil become the Executive PM, so there won’t be any more Prez elections?.

    Sadly Sobitha is not there to help Ranil…

    Here are a few examples of the current ” Mess”

    Chinese Ambassador tells a high powered business forum that they have to talk to all 92 Ministers to find out what the Yahapalana Policy is”?

    Even the High Profile Ministers don’t have a clue, says the Ambassador.

    Bodhi Sira now says, he is worried about Btalanada PM spoiling his name.

    That is why he is meeting Singapore Mahendran to tell him to go peacefully so that Sira can help save Batalanda Ranil’s Mr Clean name.

    Never knew Bodhi Sira loves him so much…

    Batalanada Ranil’s body guard against the Armed Forces, Field Marshall Nattanamiya says, Salawa exploded because the Army Commanders who took over from him have been Ball Room dancing since he was sacked.

    How cool is that..

    But Batalanada’s Defence Secretary said Kosgama went in flames because Army was practising “Fire Drills”.

    Batalanadas UNP CID is now grilling all Army in the Camp . probably to catch the one who set fire to an Artillary Shell to check whether his mates in the Army Fire Brigade can put it out.

    To top it all, the Army Commander in the North who was appointed by Batalanada or is it Bodhi Sira ( even I am confused ) says he and his troops are not going anywhere.

    This was in response to Vellala Wigneswaran’s latest demand for the Army to piss Off from the North in the eve of the latest UN Session.

    Army Commander goes even further to emphasis that they are there to prevent separatists taking over the land again.

    To me he looks like the Commanders we need in these messy times, although the Vellalas might disagree”

    Chinese Ambassador probably haven’t even read these developments before he expressed his confusion.

      Hi KA Sumanasekera, I was waiting for your usual tin-pot contribution extolling the virtues of the Rajapakses. It appears your tiny mind cannot grasp the extent of the bribery, corruption, thuggery, embezzlements, murder, disappearances and abductions the Rajapakses wallowed in throughout their 9-year reign. In those few years they have all become multi-millionnaires with monies stashed in Seychelloes and USA, besides Sri Lanka and other countries we do not yet know. If you think all that wealth came from their ministerial salaries, you need your head examined. Today, thanks to the government of Sirisena and Ranil, we can still walk the streets without fear, not only from the LTTE but also from the Rajapakse government inspired thugs. People of your mindset cannot see reason but I wish you’d stop spouting your vomit in these columns.

    Who should be the next president of Lankawe is not in the Tamils’ daily plight of their struggle to keep up their life. It is exclusively for South.

    Now, if we look what issue should decide a Southern president, it is nothing but the foreign commissions and a property rental for a testing ground for Chemical Bombs, Gas Bombs and other illegal arms. The future is opening for trials of nuclear submarines too. So whoever will be ready to undertake these war games and corrupted commission games worth to be elected in the name stability and administrative controls. Lankawe is a country failed to man its parliament with some learned people from 1948. It is only nation worthy of its people to be whipped with stingray tails by its president. A person who would do this job effectively is qualified to the job of President of that country and is the ideal candidate to be selected to that alnd.

    Brother prince has indicated that “People living in Sri Lanka and outside the country have asked me to come forward to contest the next Presidential Election,”. His word of “people” is interesting instead of “Sri Lankans”.

    I don’t have to read the article of this tyrant. The mess he created is well known which cost his President brother to lose. Only insane person try to prop him up for self serving interest. The country which is slowly beginning to breath some fresh air will again be rendered into a hell hole if his objective is to be achieved. The country and its subjects will NOT be in that unfortunate situation.

    If he is a true nationalist/patriot he should reveal to the country what should be done to put the current mess on the right track instead of waiting for the next 5 years to become a president. The Rajapakshes (the rogues and goons of Medamulana) are power hungry vultures who not only robbed the country but also did all possible crimes that you can think of. I do not think the Rajapakshes have any place in Sri Lanka among the voters. If by chance the foolish masses elect him as president, all the educated people will leave Sri Lanka and migrate to the West except for a few boot lickers.

    What you mean by ‘Right Track’?

    Killing more Tajudeens, Lasanthas and Journalists?

    Intimidation and Extortion by using private Army, Navy, AF, Police and some special killing squad?

    Instigate racism by using BBS thugs and killing women and children?

    Start another war and genocide Muslims like Mullivaikal style?

    For every transection 20% -50% Commission?

    Secede the mother Lanka to China for a hefty price (Chang RiLa, Port City, Mattaa, etc)?

    Divert commercial liners (Sri Lankan Air and Mihin) to pick up puppies and girlfriends?

    Sri Lanka has not been in the right track since 1956.
    Both SLFP led governments and UP led governments have failed in looking after all the citizens of SL.

    Are you planning to form a new party consisting of members of the armed forces, monks from Sangha, journalists and Sinhalese diaspora ? If so you might have a chance. Also if you fail to win in the elections you can use the above group of members and stage an army takeover with the support of some countries from the IC.

    the bugger himself says “..I am not a politician” and he would think about it because lots of people are asking him…. is this all the qualification this man bring to the presidency candidature. This mad bugger was dilly dallying with terrorist to keep his clan in the power and robbed the county. No respect for others and no profile. since this bugger is out of office the people are free to breath and talk. may be the present govt. hasnt delivered their promises yet but there are no white vans and grease yakas, no night races and no thugs dealing and raping around the toursi under his patronage no Karunas visiting UK under false passports and no KPs hiding behind his patronage as well. And moreover no BBS and no talk about the contnuing terror danger. If the srilankans want to hieve this bastard to power then they didnot have deserved better. He and his clans are the most worse succkers I have ever came across.

We are working in all continents, there is a very strong contingent in australia and new zealand. Srilanka should be redeemed from ISIS threat. Look at the muslim population, how they have multiplied in a geometric progression over the last few years.If our man was in power do you think our war hero would have been insulted by a thambi and got away with it. NO never.

        Then what about Mahinda Rajaapkse when he got the war hero the Army commander dragged along his feet and shoved in jail. So if an Army Commander can be insulted like the way he did, then what happened in the Eastern Province is nothing.
