No one can fool Gota: Muzammil

31 July 2012 09:02 pm - 78     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Colombo Mayor A.J.M. Muzammil said yesterday no one could fool Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa and that the people who had tried to do so had had fallen by the wayside.

“I have argued with several people clamoring to thank Mr. Rajapaksa. I know that no one can fool him, there was a general who tried it and now he is nowhere,” he said.

Mr. Muzammil made these remarks in the presence of Mr. Rajapaksa during the ceremony at the BMICH for the people of Kompannaweediya who are being affected by the ongoing development work in the area.

The Mayor made these remarks after the opposition UPFA members stole the mace of the Colombo Municipal Council (CMC) yesterday in protest to the Mayor rejecting a proposal to thank the Secretary of Defence. (Hafeel Farisz)

    Hon Mayor, though I hounour you, no-one will do so for your foul mouth. You are an actor like Mahinda man.

    Rand Jay Wednesday, 01 August 2012 08:15 AM

     Gota is the greatest Sinhala hero next to King Mahinda. It was Gota who got his brother to appoint Fonseka to the army commanders post and appointed equally capable people to head the Navy and the Air Force. He is the war strategist whose efforts finished off the Tiger Terrorists. All SriLankans should be eternaly greatful to him. While Fonseka led the ground troops as per Goths plans the Airforce bombed the Tiger bunkers and Camps and the Navvy blocked the sea routes so no arms could reach the Tigers and no tigers could escape by sea. All three forces under Gota collected the job. Anyone who says otherwise is a traitor or a Tiger supporter. Any Sinhalese who insult Gota is a traitor to the motherland

    Naman Wednesday, 01 August 2012 07:51 AM

    If any one wants anything done in Sri Lanka, it can only be done if GR agrees with the project.
    Sing along/dance along with him to get any good deeds done to the country.

    Kapila Wednesday, 01 August 2012 07:58 AM

    He fools Ranil.

    DHA Wednesday, 01 August 2012 07:44 AM

    ...All for one one for all.....we have found 2 musketeers who is the 3rd ???? 1) Ranil 2) Muzammil 3) ????

    shantha madawela Wednesday, 01 August 2012 07:33 AM

    Last days of muzammill....

    Amarathunga Chandika Wednesday, 01 August 2012 07:43 AM

    Mr. Muzamil are you going to take part in High Jump or Long Jump? Beaware of the Boxer whom you mentioned as Geneal is waiting for you.

    Mathew Wednesday, 01 August 2012 08:09 AM

    Politics has no principles. Politicians have to bend in the direction of the power, just like the trees that bend towards the wind. After all it is the survival that matters not integrity. Politics is a profitable business that demands thuggery, ruthlessness, shrewdness and above all annihilation of ones consciousness.

    Godagampala Rohana Wednesday, 01 August 2012 07:19 AM

    Muzamil don't you have a back-bone? Why you are classed - No. 3? For this talk, Gotha is not going to crown you.

    Silva Wednesday, 01 August 2012 07:31 AM

    I think he wants a licence to open a casino.

    Asoka Wednesday, 01 August 2012 07:14 AM

    Gota really learned too many lessons from EXLTTE and TNA . He knows how EXLTTE and TNA fooled the world also.

    SunGod Wednesday, 01 August 2012 07:22 AM

    General is folled by many people no issue about that, Gota is a person with a strong character and no doubt he is the architect of the War. So Mr. Muzammil is very correct no one can lay stones on the way of Gota is keep going. As Sri true Lankans Mr. Muzammil and we have to support him and the Government for a better future.
    God bless Lanka Matha!!!

    Asoka Wednesday, 01 August 2012 07:21 AM

    Same like Gota , we need thousands. Gota knows last 65 years and before the Independent Sri Lanka people who robbed our economy. He knows each and every Colombo Tamil Companies who funded to EXLTTE to destroy Sri Lanka's economy.

    Lal Surain Wednesday, 01 August 2012 06:11 AM

    echoasma Friday, 03 August 2012 10:21 AM

    There was a saying going the rounds at one time that the muslims always turn towards the side the "kurunjan" in their fez cap turns. This is one vivid example.

    Near 2 million sri lankans in the mid east are the biggest money earners for this country bypassing all exports, but the muslims in this country are trampled and trodden by all regimes, all because of fools like him and the other so called leaders of the community!

    MM Friday, 03 August 2012 06:43 AM

    I WISH after seeing recent election results!

    Nari Sabry Thursday, 02 August 2012 01:36 PM

    Hoodwinked Wednesday, 01 August 2012 09:21 AM

    That includes you too. We all know where your mind lies at the moment.

    Minister Wednesday, 01 August 2012 09:31 AM

    Lal Surain, There is no better comment other than what you said. You hit on the nail at the right spot.

    GM Wednesday, 01 August 2012 09:29 AM

    SunGod Wednesday, 01 August 2012 09:17 AM

    Brother Rand Jay, I am agree with you from deep of my heart and wishing Mr. Gota only the best.

    CW Wednesday, 01 August 2012 09:20 AM

    Those who make nasty remarks against Gota are the ones who supported SF during Prez Election. Now see what SF has done. He created more cracks in the opposition & the "Patriotic JVP clowns" are going to Socialism on Double Cabs.

    Nifrazmaestro Wednesday, 01 August 2012 09:03 AM

    it signals that he's getting ready to get the UPFA pass

    Nodrog Wednesday, 01 August 2012 01:40 AM

    With Muzza's change in attitude towards Gota will there also be a change in party?

    Lanka Shantha Wednesday, 01 August 2012 01:38 AM

    It is clear Mayor is at the "Saloon" door.

    Looks like the winds are changing. Ranil and you should join his party and the government. This will solve the problems of the UNP.

    Suri Wednesday, 01 August 2012 03:39 AM

    We know these guys are opt for what.
    Ane Ranil Aiye oyath yannoko..?
    Then UNP is in better footing & capable leader will spearhead the party for eventual victory.

    Minister Wednesday, 01 August 2012 03:14 AM

    The hat keeps on turning and turning till it finds the way to help fill the stomach. This is today's politics!

    sue Wednesday, 01 August 2012 03:17 AM

    Hey Muz. The President says the 'Salon door is open' for the likes of you. So stop beating about the bush and just GO if that's what you want to do.

    If only RW had thought of Imtiasz Bakeer Markar as Colombo Mayor instead of this sorry excuse.

    Jay Ranaweera Wednesday, 01 August 2012 02:52 AM

    Lot of hypocrites accusing the main personnel behind the Elimination of Terrorists from Sri Lankan soil, may be that all are LTTE SUPPORTERS!!!

    Deutegemunu. Wednesday, 01 August 2012 02:47 AM

    Andy Well said. Mussa also should get in the suitcase and go with Gotha. who is a big cheat, as he is keeping dual citizenship and will run away when the time comes leaving all the suckers behind to fend for themselves. With an Us passport he is free to enter any country that excepts ammericans so he knows where his bread is buttered, unlike the other foos who he is fooling.

    andy Wednesday, 01 August 2012 02:02 AM

    Ado Muza, When the US govt asks for his extradition, you better not run away. If Gota was a real man he should renounce his U.S citizenship and be a true Sri Lankan.

    wasanta Wednesday, 01 August 2012 02:12 AM
