JVP would represent people in all their just struggles – Comrade Tilvin Silva

It is Mahinda Rajapaksa, his brothers Basil and Gotabhaya who blatantly violate election laws says the General Secretary of the JVP Comrade Tilvin Silva. Speaking at a media conference held at the head office of the JVP at Pelawatta today (17th) the General Secretary of the JVP said, “The government arbitrarily, obstinately and illegally use state resources, state officials and all state assets in its election campaign. The Commissioner of Elections, after meeting party secretaries, decided on several moves to minimize election violations. He took measures to inform police and state institutions regarding these moves. However, the government acts without considering anything. What is most regrettable is that senior leaders of the government engage in more violations than those in its lower ranks.  Election laws are blatantly violated by the President and his ministers.
