General Secretary of the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) Ven. Galagodaaththe Gnanasara Thera stated at a press conference yesterday that Ex-Defense Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, then Navy and Air Force Chiefs too should  receive equitable promotion, since General Sarath Fonseka is promoted as Sri Lanka's first ever Field Marshal in the history of Sri Lankan military.

Ven. Gnanasara pointed out that Gotabaya Rajapaksa played the major role and also supported the war against the LTTE and deserves to be promoted equally.

Thera state:

"The BBS is not against the five-star promotion given to General Sarath Fonseka but we demand that the newly appointed government hands out equitable promotions to soldiers who fought in the war because it would otherwise not be fair by them," he said.

General Fonseka will be officially promoted to the rank of Field Marshal tomorrow by the President Maithripala Sirisena.
