May Day message of the JVP

Today is May Day, the day the heroes and heroines of the working class, who shed their blood and sweat and sacrificed their lives in a bitter, protracted struggle carried out to win an eight hour working day, are commemorated.

Regime slings mud at JVP

The government that has been enraged due to the popularity the JVP is gaining daily is engaged in a mudslinging agenda using its newspapers states the JVP adding that such vile attempts indicate the bankruptcy of the government.

This is stated in a press release issued by the Political Bureau of the JVP.

Full text of the press release:

“A malicious and fictitious news item regarding the JVP has been published in a certain daily newspaper today (28th) as its main news item. The headline of the news item is “ඉන්දියානු තානාපති නිලධාරියෙකුගේ කපුකමින් සෝභිත හිමි හා අනුර කුමාර, සම්බන්ධන් රහසේ හමුවෙති” (arranged by a member of the Indian High Commission Sobitha Thera and Anura Kumara meet Sambanthan secretly). We totally reject with contempt the willfully and conspiratorially fabricated news item.


This is a casino doting regime – Comrade Vijitha Herath

The present regime is a casino enthusiastic government that has put forward three gazettes using play of words to give tax relief for gamblers that destroy the country says the Information Secretary of the JVP Parliamentarian Comrade Vijitha Herath. He said measures have been taken by the government to get the three casino gazettes adopted in parliament. He said this speaking at a media conference held at the JVP head office at Pelawatta today (20th).

Speaking further Comrade Vijitha Herath said, “Three more gazettes related to casino are to be presented to parliament. The government has decided to debate and hold a vote for the relevant gazettes on the 24th and the 25th.  Casino is a business that propagates gambling, prostitution, liquor and drugs. It is also a business that whitewashes black money and is manipulated by lumpen economy with the help of crime, violence   and underworld politics. It would increase social crime and would be disastrous to our society.
