“All members of the UNP and the SLFP and of other political parties cast their votes with lots of hopes. However, the hopes of the leaders and the members of a political party do not tally. This is the issue. The hopes and inspirations of members are not fulfilled by the leaders. It is the JVP that could fulfil the hopes of the members of the SLFP that of the UNP and all others,” says the Leader of the JVP Comrade Anura Dissanayaka. He said this addressing the ‘Dhiriya Purawesi’ summit held at Polonnaruwa yesterday (20th) held 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).
There is a group that shouts ‘nation’s mother’ when Ms Shiranthi Rajapaksa, the wife of the retired president, is summoned to the CID and when this group shouts ‘nation’s mother’ to her when summoned to record a statement in connection with the murder of popular rugby player Wasim Thajudeen, what would be the thoughts of Thajudeen’s mother would be asked Comrade Anura Dissanayaka.
The Leader of the JVP said Mr Ravi Karunanayaka resigned from the ministerial portfolio only after he was cornered after a theft was exposed but there is a group of people who kiss his hand. Comrade Dissanayaka said people should shun such idiotic behaviour.
The JVP Leader said the time has come for the people to clean up their minds and rally to pave the way for a change in the country.
