Gota not behind Easter Sunday terror attack: SF

Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka yesterday said that he did not believe former defence secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa was behind the Easter Sunday terror attack.

He told the media in Kandy after visiting Mahanayake Theras that this issue had been coming along for seven to eight years.

“The 'Good Governance Government' and the government in power before 2015 had also received complaints and information on the terror outfit. Former defense secretary Rajapaksa had also received this information but he also did not take necessary action. So, he also cannot get away from the responsibility,” he said.

He said he would deliver perfectly well if he was handed over the responsibility of the Law and Order Ministry.

“I will not demand that I must get it. But it is better if someone with a practically proven track record gets it,’ he said.

    Although murderer and torturer Gota is benefiting politically from the attacks, it is inconceivable that he is involved in the attacks.

    Competent people are overlooked and " podiyans" are appointed to responsible positions. As a result , they do not know whether they are coming or going.
