28 June 2019 08:17 am - 12     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


UPFA MP Kumara Welgama said that he will not support Gotabhaya Rajapaksa if he contests the next presidential election.

He said he will never support a person with a murderous background and a person who was notorious for having such a background.

"If there is a person who has a murderous background, I will not support that person," he said.

"All governments have murdered people to protect their power. Therefore, if someone is coming from such a background my support will not be there for that person," he added.

    so you want to be a prez............. you have no any leadership quality or no reason for you to be in parliament either but to be in a brothel since you are a womanizer!

    100% TRUE . Gota was not even a MP . Is an American citizen (Very patriotic) Above all politics must never be a FAMILY BUSINESS .

    Really ?? Gota is a patriotic American ? Patriotic Americans are not dual citizens ... he is a leech and an opportunist ... certainly NOT a patriot of any country where he holds dual citizenship's.

    We know you don't have to tell us in Simple words Gota is not a hero above all Gota is not suitable to be our President

    I highly appreciate Welgama for telling the truth particularly by saying that Gota ran away to America due to the fear of war but Field Marshal, Fonseka.

    So cat openly out of bag. Gota is a murderer

    mangala Friday, 28 June 2019 09:52 AM

    He says Gota is a murderor. Others say Welgama is a womaniser and have allegations of corruption when he was Minister for CTB So unproven allegations

    Jaliya - GOTA is patriotic to America and NOT to Sri Lanka . GOTAs mansions are in USA from the ill gotten money made when MARA was president . Its no SECRET .
