Former Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa says is prepared to enter politics if the public want him to. He is counting on sinhala racist votes as he is accused of being part of killing of more than 40,000 Tamil Civilians and organisor of the White Van run under President Mahinda which killed Journalists, Human Rights activists anyone who opposes Mahinda’s rule.
Speaking to reporters outside the Presidential Commission on large scale fraud today, Rajapaksa said that the country needs a strong opposition. He said that Tamil National Alliance leader R. Sampanthan cannot be accepted as the opposition leader. Most of the Rajapaksha family members and their associates are accused of large scale frauds and killings and are investigated. It is understood that Rajapaksha family can only coverup the frauds and killings by comming back to power hence they are playing the racist card to gain the sinhala extremist votes to gain power.
Meanwhile National Freedom Front leader Wimal Weerawansa a well-known racist said that a new opposition political front is being formed and that is is almost ready to commence work with Rajapaksha family taking the leading role.
Asked if Gotabhaya Rajapaksa will play a key role in the new political front, Weerawansa said that it is too early to comment but Mahinda will play a key role.
