Govt. benefitted from communal violence: PHU

2018-03-08 11:45:22

The government has benefitted from the recent acts of violence in the country, the Pivithuru Hela Urumaya (PHU) said yesterday.

PHU General Secretary and MP Udaya Gammanpila told a news conference that the pressure on political parties including the United National Party (UNP) to remove Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe from his post had now been suppressed due to the spree of terror attacks instigated by communal violence.

“The joint opposition will not be benefitted from these incidents in any manner. We, as the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP), have won the majority of votes from the Sinhalese in the recent election. We now attempt to win the votes of the minority groups. The JO or SLPP does not need to attack any community."

"However, the UNP is having a huge benefit over these barbaric acts. If this uncivilized behaviour do not stop immediately, the country will face a huge crisis in future. I am requesting all Sinhalese to intervene and bring this situation under control,” he said. (Kalathma Jayawardhane)

    This just reveals the opportunistic thinking of these fellows where every catastrophe is assessed in terms of political benefit.

    People like you who create Problems have the safety of Australia to run to . However, the poor masses from both communities are the ones who will suffer as a result of Racist Politics adapted by you and your henchmen !

    Do you think this is the same regime which was benefited in Aluthgama some years back? Sorry Gammampila, we did not die like you to be born again in just 3 years!

    This is not an issue of weighing benefit but look at whats happening to the country and where it's heading.

    Hopefully nobody will believe your nonsense. The only one who are benefited from the recent acts of violence in the country is MR and his henchmen.

    Despite the utterly simplistic comments made in this list, Hon Gammanpila speaks the TRUTH!. Any person with an iota of intelligence will realise this! Let us leave out any who don't. MM
