The government today blamed the leftist JVP of a conspiracy to topple the government and charged that it would not be reluctant to take legal action against those who engaged in such conspiracies.
Issuing a statement the government Information Department stated that “State Intelligence agencies were currently investigating after receiving information that thugs had been utilized during the last week’s Free Trade Zone (FTZ) protest to attack the police and create a violent situation.”
The statement also thanked all parties who allegedly averted another incident like the FTZ clash during the funeral of worker Roshen Chanaka and stated that the JVP was behind misleading FTZ workers regarding the Private Sector pension scheme and creating an intense and violent atmosphere in the area.
The statement also charged that JVP’s clear motive to topple the government using this unfortunate incident to fulfill their political will and said that “carrying placards stating ‘send Mahinda Rajapaksa home’ is clear evidence of JVP’s conspiracy to topple the government but not to win the right of the people.”
“The doors of Temple Trees are open to discuss any matters in any field and that the public should be mindful and attentive against such conspiracies against the country,” the statement said.
How did you became President, w/o JVP, you should been on th eother side.

A pathetic attempt to find a scapegoat for the shooting? So so...who gave the order?
Ivan Monday, 06 June 2011 07:21 AM
Why do not you arrest the thugs and that politician who came with metal and wooden bars to beat JVP protest at Town hall 2 days ago.
Fayad Monday, 06 June 2011 07:22 AM
No need JVP to topple the Government if democracy do not prevail masses will topple the government like most middle-east countries.

If labors fight against their rights, why should blame JVP
Aru Monday, 06 June 2011 07:48 AM
What sort of rubbish is this?? The JVP and the UNP were only supporting the workers in their struggle. That is what the opposition is for. The government should stop fooling the masses at least now.
malkanthi Monday, 06 June 2011 07:49 AM
JVP is comparatively a very small party, it is better having a bunch of bright fellows that can make an impact than a big band of jokers.

Be sincere in your acts. This would never happen if the leaders are honest as .people have lost faith on them. The pension scheme is not for the benefit of Private sector but to snatch their billions of rupees. They are like sniff dogs.

Instead of blaming JVP or UNP, the govt must probe into the real reasons behind the agitation.
Jalba Monday, 06 June 2011 12:44 AM

When the government is unable to solve people's problems and the promises they gave during the election, it is always a conspiracy of opposition...

If there is good governance in the country why should the government worry about a party that has hardly any support of the general public.
indika Monday, 06 June 2011 03:46 AM

Wow! now they are talking of legal action. The arrogance has started to decline. Earlier they though anything could be done with2/3 majority in parliament.
Ramesh Monday, 06 June 2011 04:37 AM

Wara Monday, 06 June 2011 05:10 AM
No, they lead for the riot, even after the government inform that FTZ workers are exclude from the scheme AND LEAD AN INNOCENT WORKER TO DIE.
hemjey Monday, 06 June 2011 05:08 AM
No they provoked the police to shoot an innocent. This has been one of their strategic practice as examples can be found in the history.
