  1. Very sad about the story. He was an excellent Army commander.

    However in his final days, he joined wrong politics with UNP's pro-LTTE leader called Ranil Wicramasignhe (who destroyed the reputation of UNP). He had to do a complete opposite thing to his 30+ year Army career after he started politics with UNP due to the fact that he had to listen to Ranil.

    However, people of Sri Lanka still loves this person as an Army officer and definetly not because of his politics.

  3. actually that is true. Mr. Janaka is a war hero however and only mistake he did was joining the wrong party. If he joined SLFP which has a more favor on defeating terrorism by war, it will be more beneficial for the whole country.
