Army Commander Jagath Jayasuriya said that unlike some of previous commanders he always listens to everyone who comes to him.

Addressing senior officers at the Army Headquarters yesterday the Army Chief said, “Unlike some of former Commanders, I always listen to everyone who comes to me. I used to listen to their viewpoints and be sensitive to their pulses. ‘I am always approachable.”

The army headquarters in a statement quoting the Commander also said that there was no severe breach of discipline reported among the troops in the past couple of year. “… a factor that all of us can be happy and proud of. It is you who all made these projects possible and effective with the support you received from your ground troops. We must strive hard to sustain that record,’ the Commander quipped.

Recapitulating all what the Army has been doing since he took office after humanitarian operations brought about the culmination of terrorism, the Commander spelt out the series of progressive projects that had so far been undertaken and successfully performed, it said.

He recalled the ever-growing friendly ties with foreign Armies on Army to Army basis and close relations that exist. Those relations are the most recognized during my tenure of office.

    ruvin_r Wednesday, 18 July 2012 08:03 AM

    Well said sir!

    bash Wednesday, 18 July 2012 03:06 AM

    How many stars have you got ???????

    ruvin_r Wednesday, 18 July 2012 08:17 AM

    Yes yes, well said!

    con Wednesday, 18 July 2012 03:07 AM

    Yes nothing to do, so better listen to all the gossip!

    Game Over Wednesday, 18 July 2012 08:21 AM

    Exactly ! he has realised that the best way forward is to be a yes man than a man with a backbone.

    kumara Wednesday, 18 July 2012 03:31 AM

    Since others have done their duties to the nation, you can listen !!

    Matalan Wednesday, 18 July 2012 03:50 AM

    Is this ethical, to insinuate so negatively against your former boss? - Yet, your present boss would no doubt say - "Hear, hear!"

    Kautilya Wednesday, 18 July 2012 04:25 AM

    Listening to someone is the only work I have.

    Coconut Donkey Wednesday, 18 July 2012 04:25 AM

    If the key to winning a war is to prove a reactionary response from your 'enemy', they it clear for all to see who the better Commander is..

    Leslie Wednesday, 18 July 2012 04:54 AM

    It makes a lot of sense and very well said General Jagath Jayasuriya!

    Manik Wednesday, 18 July 2012 04:41 AM

    You are listening to others but did others listen to you during the war? They listened only to GENERAL FONSEKA.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Wednesday, 18 July 2012 04:54 AM

    We know what he is insinuating. The former Boss was busy trying to eliminate terrorists and had no time for gossip or to listen to tittle tattle from the top. Of course, now there is nothing else to do other than supervise the Seva Vanitha work and reminisce heroic adventures of the brave predecessors.

    Matale Kolla Wednesday, 18 July 2012 04:58 AM

    There are Commanders and Puppets
    Which one you belongs to !!!

    Nari Sabry Wednesday, 18 July 2012 05:14 AM

    Now he will get another 3 stars at least.

    Katta Kuvera Wednesday, 18 July 2012 05:15 AM

    Wise man. He knows when to listen and when not to.

    lankaman Wednesday, 18 July 2012 05:40 AM

    He is Lieutenant-General. That's 3 stars

    1 star - Brigadier
    2 star - Major General
    3 star - Lieutenant General
    4 star - General
    5 star - Field Marshal

    Punchi Putha Wednesday, 18 July 2012 05:52 AM

    I am a Yes man!

    sash Wednesday, 18 July 2012 06:38 AM

    Yes sir yes sir three bags full :)

    Wijebahu Wednesday, 18 July 2012 11:44 PM

    thats all he did in the hight of war, while his previous commander highly motivated to crush terrorists.

    Cynic Wednesday, 18 July 2012 06:42 AM

    Thank god you are only a ceremonial commander.

    asoka abeywardena Thursday, 19 July 2012 12:05 PM

    hey JJ...you don't have to say that...we know your are a good listener...only listens...

    Sanjaya Wednesday, 18 July 2012 07:09 AM

    I think the latter.

    Lal Surain Wednesday, 18 July 2012 07:32 AM
