    Gotabaya to Tamil voters is like showing a red tag to a Bull. People cannot forget white vans, grease devils, arrests, detention, the murder of LTTE surrendees, banning the singing of National Anthem in Tamil, the bombing of hospitals and schools and then claiming they were legitimate military targets, his hostility towards both Tamils and Muslims and his patronage of Sinhala Buddhist extremists like Galgoda Gnanasara Thero, Athurale Rathna Thero and others. His opposition to devolving land powers, police powers etc. It is a pity the Sinhalese voters voted for a person accused of corruption, murder, misuse of state funds etc. The country is going once again to an era of doom and gloom.

    I know the Jaffna Tamils are totally against Gotta, but according to my Tamil friends, they are very happy that the Anti-Middle Class and Anti- High Caste LTTE was exterminated by Gotta’s leadership of the Military.

    Did you see any white vans? If you did, do you know who was behind them? If you did not keep your mouth shut. Whereas we saw, who killed our Christian friends

    Very bold of you (and ignorant) to assume that only Sinhalese voted for Gotabaya. It's as if you are suggesting that Tamils live only in the North and East. Regardless of your opinion, the majority has spoken, and we have a new president for the entire country (all nationalities). Live with it.

    Cuz we all remember how they were treated during the war. Gota will never care about them. The world knows that. He'll never give an answer to the ones he abducted with the white vans.

    Racism still prevalent in the north and east.
