While charging that the Police media spokesman was trying to water down the Katuwana shooting incident, the JVP today challenged Director General of the Media Centre for National Security Lakshman Hulugalle to prove the accuracy of his statement issued following the incident.
Soon after the shooting incident in Katuwana, where two JVP supporters were shot dead by unidentified men last Friday, Mr. Hulugalle claimed that the incident was suspected to be linked to an internal dispute among two JVP groups.
Addressing a press conference, JVP MP Anura Kumara Dissanayake said, “It is ridiculous for a person to make such a statement after an underworld gang shot dead two persons and injured others. We challenge Mr. Hulugalle to prove the accuracy of his statement if possible. Also, the police media spokesman is trying to water down this incident.” (Kelum Bandara)
All this accusing and denying.....Such childish behaviour by both sides. Can't believe these guys are responsible for the country's affairs. We are doomed!!

Anura and Nalinda, Please keep to the democratic path although the government seems to be starting the same thing that JR and later Premadasa did. This time JVP has to stay with the people.

I agree with Mr. Hulugalle because no one like to keep hitting to a already dead sneak.

When they came for the Jews, I kept quiet, Coz I'm Not a Jew, When they came for the Journalists, I blamed the International Funding, When they came in the White Van, I kept quiet, Coz I was Not in the White Van, When they came for the Tamils, I blamed the West for the interference in the internal affairs, Now they came for Me; Only the International Community can help us. I thoroughly enjoy blaming others all my life.

All these people shoot off their mouths without ascertaining facts and then wiggle out by bringing God as a witness.
