General Secretary of the JVP Tilvin Silva speaking to the media on Wednesday criticised the government’s response to the events that unfolded in Aluthgama.
He made expressed the following views:
[quote]The government is now implementing the second phase of its programme. The first phase was to set fire to Aluthgama and Dharga Nagar. Now they are sending the armed forces to clean the mess and rebuild houses.
It is the government that kills people and it is the government that arranges the funerals. This is the way of this government. The government is attempting to show that it is Sinhala Buddhist. However, the people will realise, the government is deceiving them. It was clearly evident when a decision was made by the government to host the car races in Kandy recently.
We saw how the three chief prelates opposed this move. Did the Government heed to words of the Chief Prelates and put a stop to it? The government which says that it respects Buddhism, did not stop it. The government is deceiving the people.[/quote]
