JVP to support any motion brought to defeat ‘Mahinda-Maithri political conspiracy’

Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna says the party will support any motion brought to defeat the political conspiracy hatched by President Maithripala Sirisena and former president Mahinda Rajapaksa.

The JVP on Wednesday said the conspiracy being carried out by Rajapaksa and Sirisena offering positions, privileges and black money should be defeated.

“As such the JVP would act to defeat this political conspiracy at the very first instance it gets,” said JVP Leader MP Anura Dissanayaka.

The JVP leader said this political conspiracy should be defeated within Parliament as well as outside it and therefore the JVP has organised seminars in four main towns in the island tomorrow.

On 12 November, the party has organised a forum in Colombo where a broad discussion with the participation of representatives of mass organisations, professionals and intellectuals will be held.

The JVP also asked the Speaker to convene Parliament immediately since the majority of parliamentarians had requested the Speaker to do so.

The party asked the Speaker not to accept the proroguing of Parliament since the Speaker had not been informed regarding the prorogation of Parliament. Also, the gazette has been issued without informing the Speaker definitely about the reconvening of Parliament.

The JVP noted that the Speaker had released a special statement saying that he would not recognise new changes and he recognises the earlier positions in Parliament until the Parliament is convened.

“The JVP considers this statement of the Speaker a very strong decision and thanks the Speaker for taking such a decision,” MP Dissanayake said.

The JVP said it would offer its support if a vote was taken against appointments made in violation of the Constitution. Furthermore, if the new government presents budget proposals or any such bill the party will take measures to defeat it, the JVP Leader said.
