The Janatha Vikukthi Peramuna is still behaving like they did in the 88-89 era where they unleased violence on the people, SLPP MP Namal Rajapaksa said today.
“We thought that there had been a change with the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) up to some extent. But still, the way that they behaved on May 9 shows the behaviour of the 88 and 89 eras,” Namal said.
Addressing the media, he said that they thought the JVP had put their sticks, swords, daggers, and torches aside and had joined with the workforce to rebuild the country.
“We thought that the JVP would come to a policy decision to join in rebuilding the country. But this does not seem so,” he said.
While commenting on the current government, Namal said the current president is implementing a certain procedure to uplift the country’s economy. Also, he is trying to find a centre point for the policies of Sri Lanka Podu Jana Peramuna (SLPP) and his own policies.
“Therefore, we will give our best support to him. We are both separate political parties, and we stand on separate sides when considering political policies. But the President and we are trying to bring the policies to a middle point for both parties to fulfil the needs of the people in the country,” Namal said.
If we cannot come to an agreement with any policy decision, we will be discussing it with him and making it right, he added. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)
