JVP To Protest Against Rising CoL

The JVP has organized a massive protest rally on Tuesday (1) against the increasing commodity prices and the rising cost of living.

JVP Propaganda Secretary and parliamentarian Vijitha Herath told a press conference that political parties had to organize people’s struggle against the issues faced by the people and the government’s failure to address them.

He said that the JVP would take the responsibility by holding its first protest rally against the rising cot of living next Tuesday.

He charged that the government has failed to provide relief to the people in the face of rising prices of essential items.

Herath observed that while people use to rob gold, jewelery, cash and other valuables earlier, they were now stealing essential items due to the high prices.

He said that given the plight of the masses at present, it was evident that the Mahinda Chinthana has failed to deliver.

    Why only the JVP ? Why can’t the UNP join in a national issue like this to free the country from dictatorship and corruption. Take a clue from Tunisia, Egypt and Libiya… one voice and no parties. UNP get out of your pride and work for the common masses. This is how MR came into power and the only way he will be thrown out of power.
