The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna today accused the Government of failing to fully implement its 100 day programme.
JVP General Secretary Tilvin Silva said that the Government had promised the public several concessions but only a few were offered through its interim budget.
Silva said that the Government has now been in office for more than 100 days and has not been able to even use those additional days to fulfill all its promises.
Among the promises the Government has not met, according to the JVP, is giving insurance to fishermen and farmers, allocating 6 percent of the GDP for free education and also giving permanent houses with land to people living in line houses in the estates.
The JVP General Secretary also said that the Government must submit the bill on the Right ti Information to Parliament soon.
He also noted that an unstable situation has arisen in Parliament with opposition members who are supporting former President Mahinda Rajapaksa attempting to block bills presented by the new Government.
Tilvin Silva said that even the 19th Amendment to the constitution was passed in Parliament with the greatest difficulty as some members of the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) attempted to obstruct the bill.
Silva also said that the United National Party and the Sri Lanka Freedom Party are now looking at what is best for their future and not the country. (Colombo Gazette)
