Even though he was ready for the character of Nandasena Gotabaya Rajapaksa or Gotabaya Rajapaksa, President Gotabaya Rajapaksa said today he was not ready to resort to bad politics just as the opposition.

He expressed these views at the “Gama Samaga Pilisadara” programme at Lathugala, Uhana in Ampara this morning.

The President said Buddhist Clergy and the people were expecting him to play the role of the Defence Secretary, who he was before becoming the President.

“The LTTE terrorists set off a suicide bomb at the Piththala Junction targeting me. People know what was the fate the terrorists leader had to face. Even though I am ready for the character of Nandasena Gotabaya Rajapaksa or Gotabaya Rajapaksa, I am not ready to resort to bad politics just as the opposition,” he said.

While claiming it was upto the judiciary to punish wrongdoers, the President said he was not prepared to interfere with judicial matters and resort to political witch-hunt just as the previous government did.

He requested the opposition to engage in reasonable politics without spreading wrong opinions among people.

    There has never been reasonable politics in this country at least in the last decade or so. It is the same now too. All the politicians are responsible for this sorry state of affairs

    You already done bad politics and grabbed the power.

    Practice what you preach . So far the opposite happening. You have been a disappointment to all of us who had great expectations. Get rid of the hangers on like MR time to survive

    Dear President, talking is very easy. What we need from you is action. You are keeping majority happy by suppressing minority. You want to win the hearts of majority. I am going to wait for 4 years and I want to see your results. The country will go down economically. Today the country is controlled by your ex Army chaps.

    Yes, very surprisingly you have turned out to be a soft character as President. But still highly gifted. Hindu Tamils are grateful to you for eradicating the LTTE comprehensivel,only wish it had happened much earlier.

    As I SRI Lankan I respect your word MR President, you finished war but you haven’t finished the job. Better opportunities for Muslims Tamils and other ethnic groups. We all Sri Lankan’s. I challenge you to create opportunities to minorities.

    This is perfect opportunity to inclusive among all SRI Lankan.

    Very unfortunately, the present government resorts to BAD politics, which you have never understood but the people of SRI LANKA know well.

    You have been a total disappointment. Your failure is a result of what you did to your great brother. You will never have a 2nd term.

    Gota is right

    Demuni Uduwara Sunday, 10 January 2021 03:09 AM

    You think as if the critics are LTTErs; eradicate your such impression and learn lolitics.

    Cheers Sunday, 10 January 2021 03:16 AM

    Opposition is bankrupt and deceased so dont worry there is no more UNP, SJB, JVP, TNA as they are now in limbo will never raise heads under you

    Ram Sunday, 10 January 2021 03:37 AM

    Mr President, If you want to do honest clean politics please investigate Minister Ratwatta firing his pistol in the air at a Hotel in Kandy area to threaten another Politician after an argument with the other. Please get rid of those who act as thugs as their actions reflect badly on you

    During DS, Dudley and Bandaranaike era it was good, Yahapalana was bad and the present regime is ugly. " The Good , The Bad and The Ugly"
