We’ll have alternative programme against corrupt and deceptive political culture of the UPFA & UNP – Comrade Vijitha Herath

"Before the general election masses rejected the political culture set up during Mahinda Rajapaksa regime. Now, those who have been rejected during the SLFP crisis are getting ready to contest the election. President Maithripala Sirisena cast away the country and the people to give preference to his party. Now discussions are being held to get the thieves from the old regime to contest the election. Masses will never approve this move," said the Information Secretary of the JVP Comrade Vijitha Herath.
