The JVP organisers of Kalutara, Colombo and Gampaha have joined politbureau member Premkumar Gunaratnam’s group in opposition to the Somawansa Amarasinghe camp and triggered a major crisis within the party.

Premkumar Gunaratnam, it is learnt, is organising party cadres in 14 districts and has even moved to dissolve dozens of JVP affiliated organisations, including the National Bhikku Front.

Most of the party offices in the Western Province have remained closed during the past few days.

Gunaratnam, the brother of JVP senior Ranjitham (who was killed during the 1988/89 insurgency), had been in self exile in Australia till recently. He had reportedly returned to Sri Lanka early this month.

It is learnt that the Somawansa camp is slated to hold a media briefing soon to tell their side of the story.

Gunaratnam is said to be of the opinion that the JVP should support the Tamil cause, while the Amarasinghe group is opposed to communalising the party.

Highly placed party sources said that there was a plan by Gunaratnam group to go underground and pave the way for an armed struggle.

    This was there since 2000. Wimal was with southerners and Prem was with northerners. The marxist theory always talks of self rule. According to that Premakumar is correct

    Gunaratnam or Maniratnam, no any more armed struggles possible in Sri Lankan soils. But Somawansa faction should be more attentive on the tamils' issue. JVP lost the faith of the Tamils, a long ago.
