The Janatha Vimuthi Peramuna (JVP) which called the Aluthgama violence ‘totally unwarranted’   appealed to people from both the communities to exercise restraint and preserve law and order.

Addressing a hurriedly summoned news conference, JVP General Secretary Tilvin Silva said people should act intelligently, without allowing their emotions to reign.  

He said the JVP was averse to racism and therefore it had been able to reach out to both the communities at this moment.

Mr. Silva took a swipe at the government over what he described as ‘the irresponsible way of handling the situation’.

“Certain groups are considering themselves as a law unto themselves.   Probably, the Government used such groups to arouse communalism for its political gain. The government is confronted with a lot of problems and as such may be considering to use communalism as a tool for political gain, “he said. (KB)

    J V P is the only party that can develop the country, law and order is very important and corruption free country

    Mason Monday, 16 June 2014 01:42 PM

    Those in the regime are busy making money for themselves and do not have time to devote for the protection affected minority communities.

    Defenseless people have started to think of an alternative.

    Very true! Their law and order at the peak in 1988-90. Their law (low) was effected to dead bodies as well !!

    Rohan F. Monday, 16 June 2014 01:47 PM

    JVP should rally all three three communities Sinhala, Tamil and Muslim together and should talk for justice, freedom and liberty of all three communities. Only JVP could organise more inter communal harmony to avoid another 1983 July progrom..

    The only single party can rely on.

    ATHTHA Monday, 16 June 2014 01:51 PM

    Yes, go to India and Canada.

    When someone talks good of the JVP, we are reminded of the past by the "so called patriots". When it comes to the UNHRC investigation, the "so called patriots" say, forget the past and heal the wounds. What hypocrites these "so called patriots" are. Time to think intelligently and not blindly.

    Yakada Yaka Monday, 16 June 2014 01:55 PM

    Time to vote for the General?

    Saman Monday, 16 June 2014 02:07 PM

    JVP should insist that the Government is liable for this catestrophy due to it's negligence and should insist that GOSL compensate all the victims.

    machan Monday, 16 June 2014 02:13 PM

    Yes, I agree with Ammaa. I have never voted for JVP. But there are only party that has a clear vision about Sri Lankans. All the others are working towards Stealing TAX payers money. I hope All Sri Lankans realize this soon.

    Shan Tuesday, 17 June 2014 03:05 PM

    JVP is the wolf in sheep s clothing.they will say anything and do anything to get elected.Need to see beneath the shroud. Those who support them dont see beyond the rhetoric .

    macdaddy Tuesday, 17 June 2014 04:29 AM

    that's the only party who can ruin the country.

    RED VADDAS PREACHING BANA. MEGALOMONIACS WHO DESTROYED COUNTRY'S CULTURAL AND SOCIAL STRUCTURE IN 1971,88 - 89.

    Azee Tuesday, 17 June 2014 10:35 AM

    When referemce is made to JVP some fools always remind about 19871988.This is utter madness.Present JVP is different and completely reformed. We look forward to the General or the JVP for a corrupt free country in the future. via DM Android App

    Hula Tuesday, 17 June 2014 05:08 AM

    things are more positive for the JVP

    Shan Abeywardena Tuesday, 17 June 2014 06:27 AM

    Great American philosopher George Santayana once said Those who can not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.JVP Law and orderYes they have come a long way from being terrorists who wanted to take the country back to Stone Age.With Sri Lanka having 90% literacy rate no educated person can claim to want JVP to decide on Sri Lankas next chapter in its proud and turbulent history
