It is reported that former Defense Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa is planning to grab power to Rajapaksa clan again.
This has been revealed in a secret meeting he had held with a group of lawyers close to the Rajapaksa family. It has been stated that ‘yahapalana’ government is speedily getting unpopular and social forces should be strengthened without going for a direct confrontation with the government.
It has been discussed that strategies should be used to strengthen the group calling itself the ‘united opposition’ and a standpoint against the government should be developed using the media that supports Mahinda Rajapaksa faction.
It was also discussed to use the faction supporting Mahinda Rajapaksa to carry out various programmes in Parliament as well as outside it to make ‘yahapalana’ government unpopular.
