JVP insists it has no deal with the UNP

Anura KumaraThe Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) today insisted that it has no deal with the United National Party (UNP).

JVP leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake, speaking at an election rally in Nugegoda, said that the UNP is working with the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) and not the JVP.

He noted that the UNP-SLFP coalition met even last week for a cabinet meeting despite contesting the August 17 Parliamentary election separately.

Dissanayake said that former President Mahinda Rajapaksa has been accusing the JVP of working with the UNP when it is his own party which is working with the UNP.

The JVP leader insisted that the JVP will look to form a strong opposition after August 17 and be a stronger voice in Parliament.

He also said that the JVP will do all it can to ensure Rajapaksa does not return to power following the defeat he suffered on January 8. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. He looks like a twin brother of LTTE Prabakaran, if he has only mustache and Prabakaran’s commando cap. He can be bad to country similar to Prabakaran.

  2. In JR time, UNP uprooted JVP and it’s terrorism. JVP wants to see Sri Lanka staying poor, as JVP is poor people’s party. Therefore JVP does not want Rajapaksa who will develop the country. But all JVP leaders want a wife from a rich family. Anyone can see examples for these in JVP leaders.
