The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) yesterday ruled out any possibility of resolving the differences with the dissident group, and said the party had instead, organised a campaign to educate grassroot level organisations on the political challenges lying ahead in the aftermath of the crisis.

JVP propaganda secretary Vijitha Herath addressed party members in Monaragala while General Secretary Tilvin Silva did so in the Gampaha district.

The dissident group too, in a similar move addressed members loyal to them in different parts of the country.  Inter University Students’ Federation former conveners Chameera Koswatte, Duminda Nagamuwa and Ravindra Mudalige, and deposed central committee member Pubudu Jagoda were in the forefront of the campaign on behalf of the dissidents’ group led by Premkumar Gunaratnam alias Kumar Mahattaya.
 
Mr. Jagoda addressed party supporters in Kandy and Kegalle.  Among others in the dissident group are Parliamentarian Ajith Kumara, Ceylon Teachers Services Union President Mahinda Jayasinghe, central committee member Dimuthu Attygale, Combined Association of Unemployed Graduates former convener Chandana Sooriyarachchi and Sri Jayewardenepura Students’ Union former president Sujith Kuruwita.

When asked about the present situation with regard to the party crisis, Mr. Herath said the unity between the two sides was now a distant dream.“What have we got to talk to them now?” he asked.

Mr. Herath said the party was yet to discuss action to be taken against these members in revolt against the leadership.“We have not decided on anything,” he said.

Meanwhile Mr. Silva said the dissident group was so small in size that action was not warranted against them at this hour. However, sources close to Mr. Gunaratnam said the dissidents wielded enough power at the grassroot level, especially among the full timers.

Attempts to get an official comment from the dissidents failed. (Kelum Bandara)

    Who were they approaching all this time? Grass tips? Think they should go underground and start with soil and worms. These idiots don't know their own agendas
