The people of our country have been pushed into extremist racist politics by the Government, said the Leader of JVP, addressing the May Day Rally of the JVP held in the Jaffna Esplanade.
Speaking further he said, our people had encountered a cruel war for 30 years. They were affected by the Army, Indian Army and the armed groups. People were shot dead by them. They lived in fear of them. They experienced great tragedies losing their husbands, wives, children, lands, businesses and Houses.
The current rulers are impotent in solving any problem. They have not fulfilled the requirements regarding Missing persons, land problems or Educational needs. They could never institute changes in them. On the contrary they leading the people toward a great mayhem.
JR with his executive power brought arsonist from Kurunegalla to destroy the Jaffna Library. Later they created the ‘Black July’. Thousands of people were affected. We are struggling to eliminate Executive presidency.
We had to commence struggle in North and the South. Northern people had accepted us. We strongly believe that we will get together. This May Day Rally has become the starting point for a united struggle. Let us get together as a New Political Force, he said.
