The Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) said today it had decided to vote against the three gazette notifications permitting the setting up of a mixed development project and flash a red light at the Government which was veering off from its stated principles of creating a national economy.
JHU parliamentarian Athuraliye Rathana Thera said the party was not attempting to topple the Government but was showing it where it was going wrong.
“We supported the president to take office in 2005 and 2010 so as to create a national economy and move towards a better society. But we have our doubts now whether this Government moving towards that objective,” he said. (Ajith Siriwardana)
We as the loyal supporters to the JHU are not trusting the Party anymore... Staying with this corrupt Govt for the sake of perks are not endorsing by the majority of JHU supporters......

Shameless is casino's the only issue ? Even if the leave MR will not care as they have hardly any votes on their own

Its OK. Your red light means nothing to this government.
Kiris Baba Amaray Saturday, 26 April 2014 02:47 AM
If you people show "Red Light" to Govt. then resign from your positions, rather than bluffing.

The govt is only worried about Chinese tourists to this country. Will do anything to satisfy them but not the countrymen.

It has been Amber Light right through out, for obvious reasons.

Even the Red Light won't stop the Caravan, it's Bulldozing forward. No Traffic Police only Tragic Police.

Why aren't they raising their voices against other issues such as corruptions and undemocratic behaviors of UPFA members.

This government will not listen to the voices of Religious dignitaries or the people but will do what they want. Going on the tourism issue it may be necessary to have casinos to attract tourists who spend money. Have the casinos in a restricted area, collect the maximum possible taxes from them Ram

THERE ARE MORE THAN ENOUGH PEOPLE TO SHOW THE RED LIGHT TO THE GOVT. AND THE GOVT DOESNT CARE A HOOT FOR THESE WARNINGS. DO SOMETHING SIGNIFICANT TO ALERT THE GOVT

JHU had a backbone to go against this. Comparatively JHU is 1000 times better than Lemon puff gang.

Why do not you quit the government? All bulshits.

If the JHU intentions are sincere why not resign and join the BBS. This is the only way to show to the general Public of your thoughts.
