The advisor to the President and former MP. Mr. Hemakumara Nanayakkara says: "Four people are in an internal tug of war day and night for the presidency. There are moles who dig tunnels for their own benefits.The fractions have already been emerged".

He hints, Amongst the contenders of this tussle for the presidency is Defense Secretary Mr. Gotabaya Rjapaksa.

 " I call this war as "People's war". This is not a "Gota's War". Mr. C A Chandraprema is one of my distant relatives. although some of the contents of his book are of highly valuable, It is not fair to say this is "Gota's War". Where is "Mahinda's War"? Where is "Fonseka's War"? Where is "Karannagodage's War"? Where is "Roshan Gunathilake's War"? Where is "jayantha Wicramarathna's War"? This is very unfair. Some people are in a rush to be the President.

 Mr. Hemakumara Nanayakkara criticized President for his involement in the agricultural sector. " The paddy purchasing Department should be re-opend in order to provide fixed price for the paddy like Mr. D.S Senanayake did during his time. I had lengthy dicussion with secretary to the president Mr. Lalith Weeratunga, but none of those proposals have not yet been implemented.It is upto them to implement it or not.If they do not listen to us. I have to stop consultation at a certain point in future".

 Mr. Hemakumara Nanayakkara also revealed about the situation of the advisors to the President

 " Some are in the habit of hanging around on the veranda of the Araliyagaha Mandiraya to show their face and to chat. I am not in that habit".

 " I keep him inform about my subject matters through faxes and post. I submit reports on the problems of purchasing and production of paddy. The effective harm to the crops by over using of chemicals and wash away of soil".

 I have dropped hints to President that there are governmet's sharks behind digging up of treasuries.

 " Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa acted deligently as a ruler to eradicate 32 year old war, But he should not let a clique of rougues to rob the nation's treasuries. He should take actions against them". Hemakumara Nanayakkara is also  of the view that Sarath Fonseka is a great leader and he was released due to influences from the international community. UNP is cracking jokes like "Vinoda Samaya" Upon his release.
