JVP lost because it supported the UNP: Somawansa

Former Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) leader Somawansa Amarasinghe said it was sad to see the JVP being wiped out at the August 17 general election. Mr. Amarasinghe said the main reason for the debacle was that the JVP was toeing the UNP agenda.

He claimed that the JVP, the main socialist party in the country, had not adhered to the original JVP principles because it was being misled and hoodwinked by the UNP.

“The fate of JVP does not surprise me. Only the JVP could speak out on behalf of the people. The four leaders of the JVP should be removed immediately. They are dishonest that is why the people did not vote for the JVP,” Mr. Amarasinghe said.

He said the newly elected government’s move to establish a national government would fail and a coalition government would be formed with the support of some members of the UNP and UPFA. (Piyumi Fonseka)

    THE JVP LOST BECAUSE THE PEOPLE REJECTED IT. THEY CAN STILL REMEMBER WHAT A BUNCH OF TERRORIST SCUMBAGS YOU LOT WERE.

    Mr Somavansa - Just like people are saying MR should gracefully retire , in my humble openion I think you should do so as well.

    Sincere Sunday, 23 August 2015 06:50 PM

    Buffalo logic. JVP supports UNP. UNP wins, JVP losers, Ha Ha.

    Or JVP supports UPFA, UPFA wins OR loses, JVP loses

    Actually most of votes they got are from UPFA, They should at least have joined major parties instead of contesting alone, That would give them possible chance to secure more seats than before. Whereas they will able to break off anti-MR voters.

    JVP supported the countries most corrupt regime in 2005 when you were the leader because you thought them as socialists Socialism and communism means corruption

    The JVP has all the answers - more so, the old JVP of Somawansa. I do not think the present leaders are unhappy.They have six seats compared to the earlier three. They are probably delighted. Further after getting more votes than the TNA they have far less seats and they have a solid case to get the electoral system changed so that their voters have an equal say as those of the main parties

    JVP is shameless to have gone with the party which was responsible for the deaths of thousands of their cadre.
