The National Freedom Front (NFF) had put the government on probation just like the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) had done in the past, NFF leader Wimal Weerawansa said today.
Mr. Weerawansa in a media briefing recalled that the JVP gave a probation period for the then PA government in 2001 in order to put it on the right track and his party was performing a similar exercise tomorrow.
However, he said his party would be compelled to change its political journey even if it became a bitter experience if the government failed to accept and implement the 12-point proposal presented by his party.
Mr. Weerawansa said Saturday’s talks with President Mahinda Rajapaksda were cordial.
“President Rajapaksa has assured me that he would discuss the 12-point plan with other senior members of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) and would respond,” Weerawansa said.
Therefore, he said, the success of his party’s deliberations with the government would depend on how the SLFP leaders reacted to his 12-point plan.
“Our objective is not to create a perfect ground for the enemies of this State to fulfil their objectives, but such a perfect condition would be set for these unfriendly forces if the government did not change its ways,” he said.
Mr. Weerawansa said he did not discuss the removal of Treasury Secretary Dr. P.B. Jayasundera and only discussed other shortcomings on the economic front.
However, he said removing Dr. Jayasundara as the Secretary to the Ministry of Economic Development was a useless move just to satisfy people.
Besides he said the crossing over of two Provincial Council members of his party to the SLFP and the UNP respectively was a political exercise engineered just to scare his party.
He said the Provincial Council member who crossed over to the SLFP was yet to be accepted by that party. (Yohan Perera and Dharashana Sanjeewa)

President must have given him a probation period to keep his mouth shut.

While being in the government, putting government under probation. The biggest joke.

Who is this stranger coming from nowhere and getting a place in Parliament with JVP. Now he has become a vociferous mouthpiece for himself. Without the president, he is nothing but a stinky shit.
