Dissidents giving out information to destroy JVP: Tilvin

The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) General Secretary Tilvin Silva yesterday accused the dissidents of having given ammunition to the government and the United National Party (UNP) to destroy the party leadership.

At an interview with the Daily Mirror he said the JVP would overcome whatever setbacks it faced after purging all anti-progressive elements within the party.

Mr. Silva said the JVP was waiting patiently to see whether those who criticised and went against party discipline would correct themselves and come back. He said some local and foreign elements were hoping to see the end of the JVP.

“They are cultivating an ideology that goes against the teachings of our leader Rohana Wijeweera and are in line with the Eelam and separatism,” Mr. Silva said. “The ideology they attempted to develop within the party is aligned with liberalism and slanted towards Trotskyite policies which the JVP does not accept. The main objective is to grab power at the top.”

Mr. Silva refused to discuss the role of so-called dissident group leader Premakumara Gunaratnam and said there was no one in the JVP with that name and the JVP did not know about him.

“We are ready to take them back. But there are a few who cannot be forgiven and the Central Committee of the party will take appropriate action against them in due course. There had been attempts to grab power and the party Head Quarters (HQ),” Mr. Silva stressed. “There was a group within the JVP who acted against party rules. When the Central Committee moved to discuss these issues they went public and acted against the party.  They are carrying out a misinformation campaign right now and are spreading fabricated stories about the party and the HQ to keep their few followers happy.”

Commenting on the alleged attempts by dissidents to form a new party, Mr. Silva said the JVP was used to this type of threats and added that anyone in the country had the freedom to form a party.

“But the question is how long they will survive as dozens of political parties have been formed but have disappeared in the last four to five decades. The proposed one will be no exception,” Mr. Silva said.

On the charge that the JVP has failed to hold the party convention and elections to elect office bearers, he said the JVP party convention was held at the Sugathadasa Stadium on February 10, 2011 and the present office bearers had been duly elected at the annual convention.

Commenting on the charge that the present leadership was taking the party to the right, he said the JVP would not change its policies but was always committed to a socialist democratic policy.

On the issue of publishing of the ‘Lanka’ newspaper Mr. Silva said it would be published after sorting out the legal impediments.

He vowed that the JVP had the strength and resolve to emerge victorious from all these obstacles as the JVP was a political party that had been sharpened by the many problems, controversies and conspiracies it had faced in the past. (Sandun A. Jayasekera)
