  1. i heard a story behind this (may be true may be not).
    He have rejected a shipment of ammo from China and some other country, using his powers as the Chief of Defence Staff, saying the war is over and they don’t have a requirement of ammo. since we have enough ammos for trainings and for other purposes we don’t need any more.
    This shipment was arranged by Go** and he get a huge commission from the deal.
    This is where the conflict have occurred.
    this may lead Gen to be a presidential candidate from UNP and that will be a huge challenge for Maiya.
    (it is something that I’ve heard and may be this is not true)
