When contacted over this, Jayatilake told 'Sri Lanka Mirror' that however, at the rate politics was being done in the country Gotabhaya could contest even without attending a tutor, and win.
A victory for Gotabhaya will be positive for Sri Lanka’s future, he said, adding that he would fully support the ex-defence secretary if he contested.
It was SLM which broke the news that Gotabhaya has decided to enter a Chinese university to study politics.
However, former president Mahinda Rajapaksa is against his younger brother Gotabhaya’s political entry.
Giving a phone call to a top figure of ‘Viyathunge Handa’, Mahinda told them to immediately suspend attempts to bring Gotabhaya to politics, warning that he could even face imprisonment if he did so, reliable sources say.
