“Mangala is attacking me because he knows I can” - Gota

Mangala Samaraweera had said that posters were put up earlier that Ranil Wickremesinghe is incapable because they knew his capability, and today he is attacking me perhaps because he too knows what I am capable of, said former Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa.

He said this yesterday in Badulla addressing the first in a series of conferences organized by the Nation Building Collective Organization held at the Badulla Town Hall.

He further said, “The country’s economy has crashed and investment has dried up. The people are being weighed down by the debt burden. As the Finance Minister it is his duty to uplift the country’s  economy and provide relief to the people.

But, instead of resolving the issued faced by the country, he is issuing statements about me, perhaps because he knows what I am capable of.
When I was the Defence Secretary, I brought in investors to develop the Colombo city, but today’s ministers are incapable of doing that. They are unsuccessful in their positions.”

Gota’s Viyathmaga!

Gotabhaya said this in response to a statement issued by Mangala Samaraweera ridiculing his Viyathmaga organization as Vipath Maga.

“Implementing an economic policy that favoured their friends and relatives for almost ten years and brought the country to the verge of destruction, former President and Kurunegala MP Mahinda Rajapaksa and former Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa who terrorized the country with his white van culture and isolated the country internationally, are once again making plans to take the country down a path of destruction,” Samaraweera had stated in his communiqué.
