Coordinator of the UNP Media Committee Mangala Samaraweera said that it was only about a month ago that they warned the public that the country cannot afford to allow "an inefficient and non-administrative service person, such as Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, to handle a serious and important ministry as its Secretary and allow the country to go chaotic and into anarchy.
People of this country, whatever their political affiliations cannot live with such unsolved crime, dictated by politically backed armed thugs under a Secretary, who is not even willing to accept that he is a total failure as a State officer.
His verbal purging thrown on journalist cum editor of the Sunday Leader, Fredrica Jansz, should have immediately grounded the entire print and electronic media into a loud halt in any other country.
Most unfortunately it is not that here. Even those men and women who talk about internet obscenity and want websites banned for polluting a great ‘Sinhala culture’, are yet to speak their first words on how vulgar and threatening, the language of the Defence Ministry Secretary is.
With such a person who continues to break all the rules of the establishment code with his arrogant, uncouth and psychotic behaviour giving leadership to the Ministry of Defence, it is not suprising that the law and order situation in the country has totally collapsed.
Unbridled power, he thinks he could wield with vulgar threats, is definitely intolerably anti-social. If still the President does not remove Gotabhaya Rajapaksa from the post of Secretary to the Ministry of Defence and Urban Development, we won’t hesitate to say, its the right of the people to demand his removal from his office, immediately.
