UNP Parliamentarian KaruJayasuriya said that a situation is emerging in the country where, permission is needed from goons to engage in politics.

Issuing a statement, Mr.Jayasuriya said that “It is well known that these gangs who suppress opposing political views using iron bars during the pasthad the blessings of some politicians or politically powerful persons".

"Now these goons are so powerful that they are bold enough to use automatic weapons to suppress those who profess a different political view from their political masters.”

He said that “this is clearly evident from the incident which took place at Katuwana, where a meeting organized by the JVP was attacked using automatic weapons. Goons left the site scot free, after killing two persons and damaging property.”

According to MrJayasuriya this incident took place, whilst the government is preparing to hold elections after dissolving a few Provincial Councils. When the price of essential items including milk, food, dhal and rice is soaring, people are paying a higher price for fuel; where the price of fuel has come down in the international market and masses are protesting in many ways against the increase in the cost of living. The government is adopting delaying tactics when people flood the streets demanding higher wages.

“The government is moving towards a dictatorship in the guise of the 18th amendment, while gangs of goons are strengthening their power bases with the blessings of some politicians. When unarmed masses protest against the government, police react using bullets,” he charged.

“We ask the government, when are you going to do justice to these people? When will you allow the authorities to apprehend those responsible for the Katuwana assault without simply relating fairy tales about the incident?”
