Military is very much worried – Rathana Thera Featured

The military is very much worried about what is happening today, says MP Ven. Athuraliye Rathana Thera.

Participating in Derana TV’s ‘Mokada Wune’ political programme, he questioned as to what the government was doing two years into office.

Political sources say the MP continues to raise the concerns of members of the military to prevent their being used by JHU’s Patali Champika Ranawaka.

However, he has told the political authority that he was campaigning on behalf of the dejected military to prevent its siding with the Rajapaksas.

Meanwhile, state intelligence is investigating if ex-president Mahinda Rajapaksa is in a political conspiracy to provoke the military against the government.

It is looking into his secret talks with the former military chiefs who are members of ex-defence secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa’s Viyath Maga, including Daya Ratnayake, Kamal Gunaratne, Palitha Fernando, Kapila Hendawitharana, Seewali Wanigasekara, G.A. Chandrasiri, Wasantha Karannagoda, H.R. Amaraweera, Mohan Wijewickrama and Sarath Weerasekara.

State intelligence is investigating information that Gotabhaya’s political entry will be a conspiracy to provoke the military into gaining power of the state.
