A group of Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) MPs together with MPs from other parties have initiated new moves to bring Members of Parliament of all parties to form a joint group to ensure economic justice, the Daily Mirror reliably learned.
These MPs have decided to call the group the "MPs Guild for Economic Justice". 

The SJB MPs who are to form this group said even ruling party MPs are expected to join the group. 

The MPs are expected to make an announcement on the move next week. (Yohan Perera)

    Economic justice for whom?

    SsZ Khan Thursday, 17 August 2023 08:50 PM

    There will be no economic justice for people till they wake up for justice. .

    Roshanaly Thursday, 17 August 2023 01:54 PM

    New group to get Ministerial Post.

    pradaeep Thursday, 17 August 2023 02:00 PM

    they are trying to change their image on people doing various things aiming next general election but all will be in vain.

    Mizaru Thursday, 17 August 2023 02:13 PM

    There is no one in the SJB except Harasha who has any clue about economics. They are jokers. I see at TV debates and it is hilarious.

    roni Thursday, 17 August 2023 02:19 PM

    Old Wine in new bottles. They should call themselves SL Nato members. NO ACTION TALK ONLY.

    Sokrates Thursday, 17 August 2023 03:08 PM

    Great job.

    D S de Silva Thursday, 17 August 2023 03:09 PM

    New group ? To do what kind of economic justice? Declare your assets, and serve the people for free. And then talk about economic justice.

    Ram Thursday, 17 August 2023 03:10 PM

    Very good decision. The economic justice is likely to fill their pockets. Good luck

    CitzenP Thursday, 17 August 2023 03:29 PM

    Get together same bunch of CR...S.

    joshua Thursday, 17 August 2023 03:50 PM

    225 rogues forming different alliances and groups to hoodwink the masses. Nothing good happens to the public

    Bernard Jayatilake Thursday, 17 August 2023 04:30 PM

    This is only a rehearsal to hoodwink the people before this group jumps onto the lap of the present ruler.

    Find out Parana Yakada salesmen. Thursday, 17 August 2023 04:38 PM

    We will suggest a very useful job for you all; Find out details of "new projects, How much money allocated, How many projects cancelled and what happened to all the money allocated." You will be doing a great service to the country. Part of them can investigate Parana Yakada business of failed projects. Name the Parana Yakada businessmen.

    Banda Iya Thursday, 17 August 2023 05:12 PM

    JVP Don't fall prey to those manipulative dirty fellows. Stay strong. You will be the next rulers. Even in the North and East. People hate the traditional parties politicians.

    Gamini Thursday, 17 August 2023 05:14 PM

    end result will be SJB will dissolved and they join UNP Aiyo Sajith!!!!!

    Channi Yasodara Thursday, 17 August 2023 05:41 PM

    Abolish the mockery constitution, resign from this parliament which is a joke and bring new legislature alredy proposed through a referendum for all forms of justice under H.E who will be PM after the election if he wins. Constitution to protect people, not myths.

    Tissa Fernando Thursday, 17 August 2023 05:50 PM

    They have seen Harin and Manusha making good money and they cannot no longer wait for making some money. First they will form a separate group and then support Ranil in return for money making opportunities.

    Natalie Nanayaka Thursday, 17 August 2023 06:11 PM

    Economic justice for poor embattled politicians, such as vehicle permits four times a year, electricity and water to be tax payer funded...and the list goes on..

    An Octogenerian Thursday, 17 August 2023 07:12 PM

    Recycling of garbage

    sss Thursday, 17 August 2023 08:52 PM

    This is Ranil making a party

    Idiot Thursday, 17 August 2023 09:02 PM

    Come together, eat together, form together and rob together. Finally look for economic justice. What a joke guys.

    Karalasingam Sivalingam Thursday, 17 August 2023 09:11 PM

    Good initiative, MPP with allegations of corruption should be excluded from all committees for general public to accept your initiatives.

    Dee Thursday, 17 August 2023 09:16 PM

    SJB will be facing the ‘Politieconomic Armageddon’ !

    USPLOT Thursday, 17 August 2023 11:11 PM

    Undoubtedly, such a move makes Rajapaksas stronger than ever before to gain power soon, kicking behind all the inefficient parties i.e. UNP, SJB

    Nallammah Kulanthaivelu. Friday, 18 August 2023 02:37 AM

    A Good Move if done with genuine interest to save the country from an economic crisis. .

    No Fooling people Friday, 18 August 2023 05:26 AM

    More lies and deception for their own benefits and perks! Same as Basil, MR, Namal, AKD, Ranil list goes on and on !

    dana Friday, 18 August 2023 05:38 AM

    Guild of MPs for economic justice? They seem opposing of grabbing commissions only by ministers ,so they want justice for that

    Kandasamy Muttiah Friday, 18 August 2023 06:04 AM

    If you wish to Economic justice, then the best ;leaders are Myna, Kaputa, Gobbaya and Hora Aliya (bank hora). Then the country can be developed again!

    Blessing Friday, 18 August 2023 08:40 AM

    All these fellows must be subjected to medical checkup before they register their Party. Sri-Lanka has the most number of baffoons in the Parliament.

    Man Friday, 18 August 2023 10:07 AM

    Is there a member left in the SJB, other than Sajith, considering the number of news circulated, thus far? Can't be as I cannot believe, at all. Try hard UNP to console yourselves with your aspirations.

    Muhandiram Friday, 18 August 2023 10:37 AM

    No better person than Keheliya Rambukwella to lead this group!

    SJB Supporter. Friday, 18 August 2023 12:01 PM

    These SJB fellows should be expelled from the Party for trying to break up the Party. They are inviting even Pohottuwa rogues to join. What a calamity ?

    DD Friday, 18 August 2023 01:58 PM

    History repeats itself, ultimately affecting the well-being of Sri Lankan citizens. To address this, one possible solution could be to return governance to the British, or alternatively consider options like involving America, India, or China.

    Ron Friday, 18 August 2023 02:07 PM

    Same old engine rebuild body will it be a genuine change to look after the country and the fellow citizens of this nation which never done before.....look after the majority poor families first its the poor that been suffering for many many years due to Politicians

    ChildOfGod Friday, 18 August 2023 03:15 PM

    What next!!!. I am finally convinced the country is being run by COMEDIANS not Politicians.

    Q-Wa Karana-Wa Friday, 18 August 2023 05:00 PM

    Very good move, better join with other parties who are against Potuwa

    G. T. Sunil Ginige Friday, 18 August 2023 05:04 PM

    This will be the final chance to Sajith and SJB to combat Ranil and his SLPP golayas.

    Damian John Friday, 18 August 2023 05:10 PM

    Well, form the joint party but it should be led by a strong person like Field Marshall Sarath Fonseka.
