Only the Jathika Jana Balawegaya (JJB) has an honest team capable of rebuilding the country, Leader MP Anura Kumara Dissanayake said.
Addressing the Divisional Council in Kesbewa on Saturday (15) Dissanayake said the people have real power because they were able to depose the ‘Rajapaksa’ clan.
However, the people are disorganised, which is why the second uprising must be organised by the JJB, Dissanayake said.
“Former President Gotabaya Rajapaksa was forced to flee Sri Lanka. Former Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa was compelled to flee Temple Trees and seek refuge at the Trinco naval base. Basil Rajapaksa was unable to get a flight to leave the country. The Rajapaksa camp, which was once rock solid, crumbled in front of our very eyes. From this, it is clear that the people have power. However, the people are disorganised. The JJB is currently organising people through Divisional Councils,” Dissanayake said.
He said a key responsibility is to protect the people in the face of the country’s bankruptcy.
“Production in the country has collapsed and inflation has increased greatly. People are losing their jobs. Monthly wage earners cannot pay off their loans. People are rising up against this oppression,” he said.
Dissanayake said the Government is trying to push such an uprising into violence. Therefore, the JJB Division Council should give leadership to well-organised groups, he said.
