JVP plays down “large crowd” seen at joint opposition rally

TilvinThe Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) today played down the “large crowd” seen at the joint opposition rally held in Colombo last week.

JVP General Secretary Tilvin Silva said that the rally was staged at the Hyde Park in Colombo which he says is a small ground which can accommodate only a small number of people.

He said that the joint opposition is attempting to give the impression that a large crowd attended the rally when in reality the crowd which filled the venue was small since the venue is small.

Silva also recalled that during the last Presidential election even larger crowds were seen at rallies held in support of Mahinda Rajapaksa yet he lost the election. (Colombo Gazette)
