Attempt by Gota to rise up with Trump’s daughter
A group of Sri Lankan businessmen loyal to Gotabhaya Rajapaksa has got in touch with Ivanka Trump, the daughter of the US president, and is now planning to bring the ex-defence secretary to political power. They are planning to launch major businesses in the country too. One objective is to promote as US-friendly the development, politics and investment fields which all are presently under the power of China.
During the Mahinda Rajapaksa regime, due to its being too much of pro-China, the US failed to expand its power in Sri Lanka. Now, the US wants to see someone loyal to it in power in the country. Also, it is not getting the support of the present regime either to implement US political intentions here, reports say.
Ivanka runs several garments and modeling businesses in the US. Many US social activists had called for a boycotting of her products.
Meanwhile, Gotabhaya has decided to go to courts to get his dual citizenship removed. Normally, it takes around two to three years for courts to deliver its judgment in such a case. Getting in touch with Ivanka means he wants to see that happens speedily.
However, Gotabhaya has told a popular website that he has no intention of removing his US citizenship, as his son and many relatives were residents there. Attempts to reach Gotabhaya for a comment failed.
