Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa said that no military in the world would ever do so much for the people in the aftermath of long-drawn war.

"When some 12,000 LTTE combatants surrendered, President Mahinda Rajapaksa personally instructed to take them directly to Rehabilitation Centres, having made them to languish in detention camps instead. No military in the world would ever dare to do so much for the people in the aftermath of a long-drowned war,” he said.

He also said, “representatives from 101 countries have so far visited North and Wanni areas after the war and they all received the firsthand information as regards development roles, now on. Such visits prove the fact that so many international communities are interested in the reconstruction process.”

Mr Rajapaksa, made this comment after opening an Army-rebuilt two storied new orphanage, ‘Blessed Virgin’s Children’s Home’ which was destroyed by terrorists in 2005, in Kaththankulam, Mannar on Saturday.

    Who actually won the war Sinhalese? they never meant when they started the offensive against LTTE. They actually said it is a humanitarian operation.

    Terrorisism had been abolished by use of the might of the Military.People should be permitted to enjoy the freedom and choose their own political leaders democraticaly and military should not be used to force them to elect people nominated by the Govt. It will be nice if the valiant troops are withdrawn and given rest at their hometowns and absorbed in Government services

    Kapila Sunday, 29 July 2012 09:56 AM

    What about great army and the great Commander of our Army. SF.

    Sri Sunday, 29 July 2012 10:35 AM

    We agree. Great work by our forces

    Jeya Sunday, 29 July 2012 11:39 AM

    You r exactly correct. I watched everything in Channel 4 what you have done

    Raj Sunday, 29 July 2012 05:34 PM

    Who divided the UNP and the JVP then?

    farieze Saturday, 28 July 2012 08:36 PM

    very commendable job done by our ARMY-
    We agree with defense secretary -no army in the world done so much of humanity work towards terrorists.

    Sanjay Saturday, 28 July 2012 10:37 PM

    The military is great, sucks that their commander who did so much was jailed and treated like a traitor. I respect the military and the people involved in finishing the war, and non of it would have been possible without all parties concerned working together. The government, president, the people of this country, and most definitely the military.
    Sucks that in the aftermath the commander was jailed, the cost of living has never been this high. People have never been so desperate to leave this country (the escalating number of boat loads apprehended shows this.) More and more loans are taken everyday, and its getting tougher and tougher to live!!!! Do something great take this opportunity of peace that everyone fought so hard to achieve and use it to ensure that our people are looked after, instead of looking after only those close to you.

    raj Saturday, 28 July 2012 11:17 PM

    if this statement is true, then he should proves by having referrundum among those people whom he refer in his statement. if not, there will be many unanswered question in regard to this statement.

    Powerlesserless Saturday, 28 July 2012 11:58 PM

    People wants equal rights not the buildings the international community can see. They want their lands, houses, their livelyhood. They can build the rest themselves, and no need for the military to do it.

    Sotthipala Sunday, 29 July 2012 12:16 AM

    Come on GöTå we need another war!! God bless Sri Lanka

    Dadoriya Sunday, 29 July 2012 01:50 AM

    At what cost? One of the reasons for the align economy?

    Jagath Leanage Sunday, 29 July 2012 02:23 AM

    Agreed. But now, Politicians are ruining the glory & work done by Military.
