NPP all ready to fulfil the task of the righteous opposition

The UNP has no ability to become the real opposition to the present government, but the NPP is prepared to fulfil the task of the opposition says the Kalutara District JVP Parliamentarian Dr Nalinda Jayatissa.

The UNP has no ability to become the real opposition to the present government, but the NPP is prepared to fulfil the task of the opposition says the Kalutara District JVP Parliamentarian Dr Nalinda Jayatissa.
Speaking at an event held in Kalutara recently Dr Jayatissa said President Gotabaya Rajapaksa has 1825 days to rule the country. He said, “As a far-seeing president, he should not allow those who have made a big noise to dictate him nor be allowed to be misled by wrong advice from those narrow-minded miscreants who would surround him for power. His responsibility is to become the president who has won the trust of all at the end of five years.
All we see about the UNP is that they have fallen to their usual power struggle. At the election, 5.5 million people voted for Mr Sajith Premadasa. However, he has blamed, especially people in Hambantota for not voting for him despite distributing various goods among them. His responsibility is not running away from these people. They trusted him, especially the Tamil and Muslim masses who voted for him. However, he has turned his back to them. This is not leadership quality.
The UNP, Messrs Ranil Wickremesinghe and Sajith Premadasa cannot become the real opposition to the present government. All this time they have struggled to get the party leadership, to become the leader of the opposition and to become the candidate of the party only.
Hence, we tell the people in this country that having any hope for the UNP that is splintering and deteriorating to do well at the forthcoming general election is futile. What is necessary for the country is a strong opposition that could direct effective criticism against President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s government and get benefits to the people and the country. NPP is prepared to fulfil the task of strong opposition.”

The inaugural press conference of the National People’s Power(NPP), in which the JVP is a member, was held at Solis Hall at Kotte today (30th).
The Convention of the NPP, a people’s center for an alternative political process in the country and is formed with progressive, democratic political parties, civil society organizations and many individuals was held at the BMICH on the 14th and its inaugural press conference was convened today.
At the press conference Comrade Tilvin Silva, General Secretary of the JVP, Wasantha Dissanayaka of Revolutionary Socialist Center, Mahinda Ratnayake of Wame Kendraya (Left Front), , Kamal Perera of Jana Niyamu Kalakaruwo and Dr Anil Jayantha Fernando of National Intellectuals Organization (NIO) addressed the media.
Also, representatives of Ethera Api Organization, Aluth Piyapath (New Wings) 71 Sahodarathwa Sansadaya (Brotherhood Society of 71), Aluth Parapura (New Generation) and Pragathasheeli Sama Sankranth Samuhikaya were present.
Comrade Tilvin Silva addressing the conference said the candidate of the NPP for the Presidential election will be announced on 18th August. He said a fathomless crisis enveloping the society, the economy, politics and culture has been built up, the NPP has been built with policies that could change this situation, it would take part in elections and would march towards salvaging the country.
The General Secretary of the JVP said, “NPP is an organization built with the participation of progressive, democratic political parties and several other organizations. The inaugural summit of the NPP was held at the BMICH on the 14th July and today we have convened the first press conference of the NPP.
A dialogue exists in the country targeting the presidential election at a time the country is confronted with a socio-economic-political-cultural crisis. It is the result of the 71 years of capitalist administrations. The rulers who have ruled the country during this period failed to develop the economy of the country. They also failed to build unity among the Sinhalese, the Tamils and the Muslims. There are communities that have been suppressed not only economically but also culturally, religiously and sexually. As a country, the rights of all people have not been recognized.
Hence it is necessary to build a new society to build the economy, national unity, social justice and the rights of all people in the country. The NPP will fulfill the task of building a people’s administration that will build a society where all could have equal rights
We have organized a massive rally at Galle Face on 18th August to rally the people in the country around the NPP that has been built with organizations and groups that have come together to take the country on a new and correct path. The primary objective of this People’s Power is not elections. Our aims are long term. However, we would also face elections if and when they are held. The candidate put forward by the NPP for the presidential election will be announced at this rally. We call upon the people to rally with the NPP.”
