JVP to submit reforms proposals to Maithri, PM

Anura KumaraThe Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) has decided to submit a set of reforms proposals to President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe.

JVP leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake said that the proposals have been compiled after obtaining the input of civil society and academics.

He said that the new Government, after it initially took office in January, made some urgent changes but the pace in implementing several other key reforms has now slowed down.

“The Government has given importance to other things now,” he said.

The JVP leader said that the proposals includes constitutional reforms and also proposals on strengthening the legal system in the country.

He also said the proposals will include sections on strengthening the peace between all communities through a reconciliation process.

The JVP is also calling for the strengthening of mechanisms to investigateĀ corruption and for legal action to be taken against those found guilty.

Dissanayake said that the proposals have been formulated based on the promises made by President Maithripala Sirisena ahead of the January 8 Presidential election and based on the mandate the voters gave him and the new Government.

“If the Government is committed to the mandate it received from the voters at the last Parliamentary election then they must immediately implement the proposals we give them,” he said.

The JVP leader said that his party will not allow the President and the Prime Minister to divert attention from their responsibilities.

He said that some of the proposals can be implemented immediately while there are those which may take some time.

Dissanayake also claimed that the new Cabinet and State Ministers are now fighting for subjects which come under their Ministry and this has resulted in a delay to Gazette the subjects. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. JVP is anti-establishment & anti-democratic political outfit.
    How can they be in part of democracy?
    Their history proved last 50 year, the politics of JVP want gun rule politics and sabotage democracy system of governance by hook or cook.

    It is true Sri lanka of under MS UNP-RW and CBK regime that time people with muddled views; including radicals, so-called lefties that creators of countless petty-bourgeois anarchist like JVP’,s their system and theories march under the” good governances and rule of law”.

    JVP sympathy with’ left ideas’ was a common expression of opposition to the MS UNP-RW and CBK ruling class.
    After UNP being to power JVP has not seen wealth and political power in the of a few ,that ongoing sharp antagonism between few rich and poor ,glaring discrepancy between production and consumption that frequent economic crises and staggering waste of material,money and manpower become crucial for the system democracy.

    We have seen last two elections 2015 , JVP whole hatred support UNP turn into ruling party by defeated MR led democratic forces. JVP want disorderly economy of Island.
