JVP to convince Somawansa to return

The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) Central Committee which met after yesterday’s resignation of its former leader and international affairs secretary Somawansa Amarasinghe, has decided to discuss matters with him in an effort to woo him back to the fold, propaganda secretary Vijitha Herath said.

He said the CC had also decided to create awareness among the party rank and file on the latest development to assure them that there was no rift in the party.

Mr. Herath said some elements were deliberately spreading rumours with the objective of creating unrest among the members and to destroy the JVP. He was referring to the some reports which had been posted on websites that a majority of the central committee members were with Mr. Amarasinghe.

Meanwhile, in a media release the JVP said discussions with Mr. Amarainsghe had started the moment he announced his resignation from the party.

“The JVP had not accepted Mr. Amarasinghe’s resignation and had decided to do its utmost to bring him back in the fold,” the media release said. The party was confident that Mr. Amarasinghe would soon return to the fold.

Mr. Amarasinghe, who quit the JVP on Thursday, said he decided to do so because the JVP had failed to read the political pulse prevailing today and had failed to take the advantage and capture power. He said he hoped to form a new party. (Yohan Perera)

    Before anything else, go through the recent past of your political party and analyse what you have done so that you can find the reason (if your party people have a balance mind) for his decision.

    THIS IS A TRICK, THEY ARE TRYING TO GET THE ATTENTION OF PEOPLE BY HOOK OR BY CROOK. BECAUSE NO ONE CARES JVP THESE DAYS.

    Somawanshe could be in house arrest already. We remember how Hadunnetti sage went about.

    Mr. Ryan Have you attended to a university?

    JVP cannot Govern Sri Lanka by itself. JVP does not have that many voters to rule Sri Lanka. Therefore JVP should join the Maithreepala Government and should take over few Ministries and serve the people and the country to build voter confidence. Somawansa is too old to form a party himself. JVP should unite to serve the people.

    Did he resign from UNP or JVP?

    Nims Saturday, 18 April 2015 05:07 AM

    This clearly indicates the downfall of JVP

    Cobra Saturday, 18 April 2015 07:41 AM

    Let him go and put his clothes out to dry. The JVP is in good hands with Anura in the helm, let the old washed out man go!

    george Saturday, 18 April 2015 07:59 AM

    JVP. No use to man or beast. Used to shoot the fe;lows in 1971 when I was in the Services. Wish I could continue that even now!
