JVP to boycott meeting with PM

By Vyshnavy Velrajh

The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) has decided not to attend the meeting convened by Prime Minister (PM) Mahinda Rajapaksa next week.

JVP member Vijitha Herath, speaking to the Colombo Gazette, questioned the benefit of meeting the PM.

The former Parliamentarian said the party would have attended if Parliament had been reconvened or if it was a Party Leaders meeting, where the party would have been presented with an opportunity to express its views.

Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday called for a meeting with all 225 members of the old Parliament on Monday, 4 May, morning.

The meeting has been convened to discuss the current situation in the country. 

Meanwhile, General Secretary of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) Dayasiri Jaysekera told the Colombo Gazette that all members of the party will attend the meeting.

Former Parliamentarian and General Secretary of the United National Party (UNP) Akila Viraj Kariyawasam confirmed to the Colombo Gazette that members of the UNP will participate in the meeting on Monday.

However, member of the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Selvam Adaikalanadan said that the TNA is set to draw a decision on the meeting today. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. There will be no difference at the election. JVP will lose remaining 3% votes too as people do not believe JVP as ‘leftist’ party. Their leaders have millions in their secret bank accounts.

  2. Damn Clowns who practice a Western oriented Marxism. Damn slavish opportunists. Richest political party in Sri Lanka.
    No more Tin Pot carrying money collection at Bus stands.

    Bring 3% to the table. Their past real Marxist stalwarts must be rolling in their graves listening to these morons who have turned out to be filthy rich Marxists.
