MP Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka is preparing for a divulgence on the present Defence Secretary Kamal Gunaratne, a source said. The MP accordingly is preparing to make a statement regarding the Defence Secretary in the Chambers soon.

Fonseka intended to make this revelation during the last Parliament session however did not get a chance, thereby expects to do so in the following session, the source claimed.  

The field marshal has told his close associates that there are 'plenty to talk about' Mr. Kamal Gunaratne running back to the war seasons, and that people should know them. He told them that Gunaratne is not a big deal compared to how Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa, the most powerful political figure of the decade, was defeated in the 2015 election.   

Although the Opposition should be conversant on core issues in Parliament, they tend to speak of useless things, Fonseka has said, according to the source.

It is said that the former army commander has informed Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa to grant him the opportunity to speak of it in the coming session, as he wishes to speak in the chambers once a month.
