The JVP is getting ready to hold a series of massive agitations throughout the country rallying working masses including farmers, fisher folk and workers.
The Member of the Political Bureau of that party K.D. Lal Kantha emphasized that institutions that have deprived rights of the working masses would be encircled to demand back rights that have been slashed.
Mr. Lal Kantha said the continuous ‘Sathyagraha’ campaigns that are being carried out in Colombo and Hambanthota harbours would continue, whatever obstacles are placed, until the casual workers in the harbours are made permanent and are absorbed to the Port Authority.
He said the government has slashed the fertilizer subsidy given to the farmer community and if the government does not take measures, as has been promised, to pay farmers the fertilizer subsidy money within two weeks, they would take to the streets with the farmer community.
The ‘Sathyagraha’ he had joined regarding issues of employees in Department of Labour ended in victory and the present struggle too would end only in a victory said Mr. Lal Kantha.
