Seminars on ‘Indian intervention’

23 May 2011 12:03 pm - 16     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


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)

    they did not intervene. they were simply expressing their views when our foreign minister went to Delhi and ask for help. so be fare

    Wonder why the JVP is silent about Chinese intervention. Perhaps they believe China has been pouring millions into SL because they love us dearly, and wont call in a few favours one day.

    Ok so they educate the masses, and then after that what? What can the masses do about it?

    Ceylonese Tuesday, 24 May 2011 06:08 AM

    Good move whatever the political party is in behind. Sri Lankans must know there are nearly 200 countries in the world.

    If india won't interfere then it is a conspiracy in silence!
    What is the difference between mediation and interference?
    Who is asking help from whom?
