“Let’s get together to form a government. We can assure you that under our government the rulers will receive no extra benefits other than what people receive,” says the Leader of the JVP Anura Dissanayaka.
He was addressing the ‘Dhiriya Purawesi’ summit of Kegalle District held at Mawanella on the 27th as part of the series of summits being held by the JVP throughout the island under the theme ‘“Gamata Diriyak – Ratata Balayak” (Boost for the Village & Power for the Country).
Speaking further the JVP Leader said, “The aspiration of SLFP and UNP members is not bad. What is bad is the aspiration of the leaders. People cast votes to them asking them not to steal. Ravi steals. People vote to say build a good health service. Rajitha goes to Singapore for treatment. When COPE launched investigations into the bond scam it was Harsha de Silva, Ajith P Perera and Sujeewa Senasinghe who attempted to protect Arjun Mahendran. Who instructed them? Who was the protector of the bond scam? Was Wijedasa Rajapaksa the only protector of the fraudsters? Who spoke to the FCID and prevented Mahindananda Aluthgamage being arrested for committing a massive fraud? We know who the culprit was.
After more than 300 died and more than 100,000 people were infected with dengue Rajitha Senaratna took a ‘massive revolutionary’ decision. He issued a circular asking not to mention the number of deaths due to dengue.
When Shiranthi Rajapaksa is summoned to the CID as part of the investigations into the murder of Wasim Thajudeen, vassals come out with banners calling her ‘mother of the species’. I’m wondering as to what species they belong to!
We can give you one assurance. Let’s all get together to form a government. We can assure you that under our government the rulers will receive no extra benefits other than what people receive.
We have made a programme for 2020. We are ready to come to power. We are preparing to contest 2020 together with the biggest force that could develop this country.”
