    hari Friday, 01 June 2012 03:13 AM

    well , you are correct. see his body language. we lankans take long time to understand. here we go, histiory repeats.

    Imran Hussein Tuesday, 29 May 2012 05:17 AM

    Gota's answers are very good but made it boring with fake smiles and pathetic body language.

    Rajiv Tuesday, 29 May 2012 05:25 AM

    True,
    Agreed with Mr Gotabhaya

    This country belongs to all of us,

    The tamil extremists are the racists who are trying to seperate this nation according to race and creed.

    We all need to live and work together to bring this country forward.

    Do the African Americans ask for a seperate state just because they are black, do the different races ask for a different country in India, do the different races in all other nations ask for such seperation of a country?

    sanji Tuesday, 29 May 2012 11:02 AM

    LOL :D

    BlindSide Monday, 28 May 2012 05:12 PM

    Well done BBC.

    sanji Tuesday, 29 May 2012 11:11 AM

    well done???? this is the sectary of defense, but he's acting like a cartoon in front of the bbc reporter...

    union Monday, 28 May 2012 06:11 PM

    "Take the word from me.." You are very funny defence secretary.

    sham Tuesday, 29 May 2012 05:59 AM

    " Don't get angry.... You will be disappeared by white van !!!!!!! "

    buffaloa citizen Tuesday, 29 May 2012 05:57 AM

    This interview shows how hollow and bogus the answers of Gota. Clearly he does not know ground realities.

    Godzilla Monday, 28 May 2012 11:28 PM

    Hey Mr, Cricketers are not government officials. they are just representing the country. Do you think we should let international media poke in to domestic issues and publicise what ever they want in favour of tamil terrorists. you must be a just another tamil terrorist. If your not happy the way sinhalese do, Simply go to india or wherever you want. Don't forget this is the only country sinhalese and it's their RULES. Got it?

    Godzilla Monday, 28 May 2012 11:30 PM

    Man you got balls than many sinhalese out there. I appreciate you.

    garawi Monday, 28 May 2012 11:37 PM

    I am with you Mr.Gotabhaya. I like your attitude and vision for Sri Lanka. Get rid of the corrupt people and drug dealers and all unwanted characters from the administration and you will be able to clean up the country and make it a beautiful place to live.

    ampare son Monday, 28 May 2012 11:54 PM

    anyone live anywere in this country. i respect that words.

    Bagalawathee Tuesday, 29 May 2012 02:58 AM
