The JVP said that they would hold a series of seminars next month to educate the masses on what they cited as the ‘Indian intervention’ in the political, economic and defense issues of the country.
JVP General Secretary Tilvin Silva told Daily Mirror that the recent joint statement issued in the aftermath of the talks between the External Affairs Ministers of the two countries showed how Sri Lanka had succumbed to pressure by India.
Mr. Silva said, “If anyone carefully reads the statement, it will be clear. The present government has agreed to work according to the dictates of India. On the one hand, the government has given into pressure by the western world, and on the other, to India. This is serious. We have to educate the people on the impending danger.” (Daily Mirror)
