Is Kelaniya above the law - JVP

6 March 2011 05:58 am - 55     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The JVP yesterday claimed that Sri Lanka had two sets of laws - one for the Kelaniya area and the other which is the normal law for the rest of the country.

Addressing a meeting in Chilaw, JVP Propaganda Secretary Vijitha Herath said a person had ordered not to sell some kinds of vegetables within the Kelaniya area.

“It is a dangerous situation, as this trend could spread to other parts of the country as well signaling a major threat to the smooth flow of daily life,” he said adding that immediate action should be taken to arrest the trend. (Jude Samantha-Chillaw)

    Roshan Monday, 07 March 2011 04:28 AM

    What about the thousands killed by Karuna and Pillyan, still we keep silent. That means the JVP cannot open their mouth?

    asoka abeywardena Monday, 07 March 2011 05:01 AM

    Vijitha Herath, why can't you say who the person is, rather than saying a person...?

    spark Monday, 07 March 2011 05:13 AM

    Thats the same reason tamils will never forget 1983.

    Ara Monday, 07 March 2011 05:17 AM

    You have missed the point. The JVP was then a banned organisation. Not elected representatives of the people.

    You are the people responsible for trying to introduce 'junle law' to the country in 71 and 83. So now others are using that. Therefore you don't have a right ask about that except UNP
