The political observers reveals that the JVP is preparing to form a political coalition targeting a general election claiming that they will not support both Ranil Wickremesinghe and Mahinda Rajapakse factions.
Recently, the JVP Leader Anura Dissanayake while expressing his views in the Parliament said the current crisis is because of a political conspiracy and to resolve the situation country need to go for a general election after reinstating the previous government in the Parliament. He also stated that president Sirisena disregarding all accepted norms in the civilised world and breaking democratic principles appointed Rajapakse as prime minister in a style you are prime minister and I am the president.
Front Line Socialist Party, expressing their views of the political conspiracy on the 26th October, requested JVP members and other leftist circles who still believe in a leftist work program to join together to form a common front. FLSP invited to form a peoples’ power outside the parliament without being spectators of the power struggle-taking place inside parliament. JVP leadership as usual responded to this request by saying there is no joining hands with the traitors of the party. JVP MP Sunil Handunhetti stated that they have to consider the request as JVP is not represent left anymore as for those who break away from the party. Bimal Rathnayake expressing his views said that party is prepared to form peoples’ power centre outside of both SLFP and UNP. Political analysts point out that JVP is initiating to build a power base in the general election joining hands with other political parties, which do not carry a leftist agenda or an alternative leftist work program.
Meanwhile ‘The Hindu’ newspaper in India has recently quoted JVP leaders speech that JVP and Tamil National Alliance is shared equal political grievances being victims of government suppression on peoples’ movements.
