The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna JVP) today charged that there were persons in the government who were not at all concerned about the unitary nature of the country and alleged that they kept renewing their American visas from time to time.

JVP Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake said that Basil Rajapaksa, Dullas Alahapperuma, Chandima Rasaputhra and Gotabhaya Rajapaksa were all American citizens and were not planning to stay in Sri Lanka for long.

"These people arrived in Sri Lanka nine years ago and still keep renewing their American visas. That is because they are not here for good and as such they still own properties in America while they undertaking a contract given to them by the President to help him win the election," he told a news conference today.

    Sir, regardless of what others do or stay, please forward prompt proposal / plan as to how Modi Suit government execute its election promises. Blaming, slinging mud would not be enough to catch votes of common people. NB: No matter what citizens they are, the service done hitherto is immense.

    If the people named are U.S. citizens, holding American passports, they do not need visas.
