If the ‘joint’ government was formed by the UNP and the SLFP stating it’s a ‘national’ government’ to develop the country’, are they going to contest the 2020 election separately to form governments of their own to destroy the country asks the Information Secretary of the JVP Parliamentarian Vijitha Herath.
He said this addressing a meeting held as a part of the series of meetings held by the JVP in its District coordinating week for Gampaha District. This coordinating week is held between the 30th March and the 2nd April.
Speaking further Mr. Herath said, “This government has been in office for two and a half years. During this period many promises have been made, committees and commissions are appointed, cases are filed but there hasn’t been any work done. However, the biggest financial fraud that has occurred in the history of this country, which is the bond scam, took place on 27th February, 2015.
People have no confidence in the government now. They won’t believe that the perpetrators would be punished. For, many stalwarts of the government are responsible for the bond scam and other frauds.
There would be full pages of reports of commissions in newspapers. By the time the investigations are over it would be 2020. This government has no solutions for crises. All what they do is postponing solutions. This is why people say nothing is happening now. The government moves on without any benefits for the people.
The two parties go in two different directions. Mr. Wickremesinghe attempts to form a UNP government next and Mr. Maithripala Sirisena wants to form a SLFP government. This is why they say the government formed in 2020 would be a pure SLFP government. While saying so they also say the ‘joint’ government was formed to develop the country. If the ‘joint’ government was formed to develop the country, are they going to contest the 2020 election separately to form governments of their own to destroy the country? Isn’t it idiocy? The truth is they got together to split ministries.”
