The first of several protests to topple the unity government will be launched on Thursday, the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) said today.

JVP General Secretary Tilvin Silva said they would defeat the present regime just as they overthrew that of former president Mahinda Rajapaksa.

He said the government’s recent action contradicts its election pledges and the suppression of people’s rights has resulted in the decision to cut short the tenure of this government.

Mr.Silva said the first public protest would begin with a rally at the Viharamahadevi Park.

“The unity government’s manifesto stated that the nation will be developed and the culprits who misused the country’s national resources will be penalized but instead of doing so they have ruined the economy and are protecting the robbers and doing little or nothing to stop hate mongering by extremist groups,” he said.

    To topple governments, the JVP is famous (infamous) for toppling this country as it happened in 1971 and 1989.

    The JVP has signed an MoU with FORMER PRESIDENT MR to bring him back to power. The deal is worth few million dollars.

    "The first of several protests to topple the unity government will be launched on Thursday, the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) said today." Will GMOA too join?

    It is a joke to claim that JVP toppled the previous government. They only joined the people forces and were never leaders. The peace, tranquillity and the robust entertaining life led by people in Sri Lanka was blown away by JVP in 1971. From that day Sri Lanka never returned to that carefree period.
