JVP hands over no-confidence motion on Government

The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) handed over a no-confidence motion against the Government to Parliament today,

The no-confidence motion was handed over to Speaker Karu Jayasuriya.

JVP leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake said earlier that the no-confidence motion will hold the Government directly responsible for the Easter Sunday attacks.

The Government had earlier said that information regarding the attacks had been communicated to the authorities prior to the attacks, but the information had not been acted on.

Dissanayake said that the public can decide at the next election if they have faith in this Government.

He said that Parliament can also decide if this Government must continue and the way to decide that is through a no-confidence motion.

Last week a no-confidence motion was submitted to Parliament against Minister Rishad Bathiudeen.

Dissanayake said that the focus must not be on individuals but on the entire Government. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. The absolute and unequivocal Truth is that Sri Lanka (SL), by name and constitution, is a democratic country. Democracy defines that ALL citizens are equal, with one vote to each citizen, to elect collectively, a president and a law making body, the legislature or the parliament, to debate and decide what is good, and reject what is bad for SL.; decisions not based on ethnic greed, selfishness, “majority” or “minority” in any form. What is good for ALL the citizens should be the sole criterion in any decision making in Democratic SL.

    A country is a group of citizens living in a land with demarcated borders. The land is inanimate, made of sand and rocks and does not have brain or life. So, a country can neither choose or follow any religion nor speak Sinhala language. Further, It is the people who live, can choose a religion or change from it.as people are born free and not into a religion. This being the absolute Truth, it is untruth, falsehood, blatant lie or stupid to say that SL is a “Sinhala Buddhist Country”, The Truth is “People of SL follow mainly four religions but most people are born to Buddhist parents but do not practice it”.

    Knowing this absolute Truth, Mangala Samaraweera, who finished 40 years in politics in SL said on 12-5-2019 that SL belongs to all people not majority Sinhalese only. On 16-5-2019, Rosy Senanayake rightly said we must act against “Sinhala Extremism”

    Then started the fun of untruth or lie from Sinhala Buddhist extremism (SBE). The chief Buddhist Priests, angrily said on 15-5-2019 “SL is a Sinhala Buddhist country”. On the same day Mano Ganeshan, with undisclosed reason said “SL is a Sinhala Buddhist country”. On 17-5-19, a Sinhalese MP visiting a sick Buddhist priest said the same. On 19-5-2019, of all people the Education minister said “SL is a Sinhala Buddhist country”

    in 1948; Ceylon became Dominion Of Ceylon (DOC). It followed the basic principles of Democracy, It developed a culture of honour and respect for; the culture, language, religions and traditional or historical homeland of indigenous Tamil citizens,

    In 1958, greediness to control the homeland of Tamils by SBE, raised its ugly head. Tamils lived in their homeland for more than 2500 years, ruled by their kings, till the 17th century. Hatred, oppression and extremism against indigenous Tamils, the second largest population in SL. was started by SWRD Bandaranayake (SWRD). Marxist Sinhala extremists joined SWRD. They together, introduced SBE and controlled the legislature of DOC. Good democratic and constitutional principles were thrown out of the window. SBE was enforced from 1958 to 1972 under DOC and thereafter as SL, with “first Republic constitution” approved without Tamil participation and a referendum..

    In 1958¸SWRD and other SBE extremist colleagues passed “Sinhala Only” Bill, somewhat similar to the “White Only” Bill of the oppressive apartheid regime in former South Africa.

    In 1977, Tamils, terribly affected by SBE, sought independence of Tamil Eelam by 65% votes in a referendum. And LTTE attacked militarily and resisted SBE for 30 nyears till 2009. LTTE is a liberation movement but SBE tells a blatant lie that LTTE is “Terrorist” or “extremist”.

    The UK, USA, EU. UN, Canada and Pope Francis expressed on 18-5-2019, the inability of GSL to address the problems of Tamils for 10 years, after the end of war with LTTE. The UNSG is obligated to send its Peace keeping force soon, to prevent any further human tragedy in SL
