Lashing out at the move by President Maithripala Sirisena and the government to appoint Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) members as ministers, the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) said yesterday that the government had actually appointed robbers and corrupt persons as ministers instead of arresting them.

“It is an act against the will of the people,” said JVP Propaganda Secretary Vijitha Herath.

He stated that this act was completely contrary to the pledge given by the present regime to appoint ministers on a scientific basis.

Mr. Herath added that the government had failed to honour many pledges given by it under the hundred day programme.

He said it was ironic that the SLFP accepted ministerial portfolios while holding on to the opposition leader’s post.(YP)

    You are also a part and parcel for electing Maithree .So he has done this move for the sake of the people. You cant find all parliamentarians are saints in governments.

    Suggest JVP to contest this election separately and we the citizens will vote and provide answers accurately.

    ANTON Monday, 23 March 2015 12:02 PM

    NO NO .....IN SRILANKA THIS IS THE MODERN METHOD OF PUNISHING CORRUPTORS.

    malta Monday, 23 March 2015 04:01 PM

    I only can say that the new elected ministers are greedy and spineless, no more words beyond this, almost most of the Sri Lankan knows this sort of thing that my3 will do it, anyway god bless lanka.

    asiyawe aschrya Tuesday, 24 March 2015 09:01 AM

    pl. submit petitions against all corrupt ministers. name and shame them publicly so that the govt , bribery com. is forced to take action

    Gobba Monday, 23 March 2015 04:30 PM

    All this strategy though very shocking is to keep out the Devil that has just been chased away. We know that certain sections of people want to bring him back and he himself wants to get back to power. The heat is on him and his family after all. These measures are necessary. Politics is a dirty strange game. As laymen it is difficult for us to understand the intricacies.

    SLFP black mailed Captain cool MS.Sheepish grins of the likes of SB reflected their own shame.

    Nimal Monday, 23 March 2015 09:33 AM

    BEFORE THE GOVT. MAKES FOOLHARDY DECISIONS, IT SHOULD SEEK COUNSEL FROM ALL STAKEHOLDERS!!!

    P=mf Monday, 23 March 2015 09:37 AM

    Time to educate the people on the quality of these new ministers. Some stink. I do not know as to how RW and SB and sit at the same table. In Sri Lanka or undeveloped countries political stoup to low levels for money and power. This is a nice and simple example.
