A Special representative convention of the Jathika Hela Urumaya or the JHU took place on Friday under the theme The dawn of a new era for an emerging nation.
The convention took place at the auditorium of the National Youth Services Council in Maharagama.
Leader of JHU, Venerable Omalpe Sobitha Thero speaking on the occasion said:
In April 2004, S.B. Dissanayake said that the JHU is a small powerless group. S.B.Dissanayake said that the JHU was a mere group. We told him, yes, we are a group, if you can, try and move this group away. Because of the decision taken by the intelligent people of this country , no matter how small the group was, the nation and the Sasana was protected because of it.
Chairman of Pivithuru Hetak National Organisation Venerable Athuraliye Rathana Thero said:
We can rendered our historical service to this nation where it cannot ever be compared to any in the history of this country and where we cannot be made outcasts. It was over two years ago that I received evidence that proved my doubts that the government was connected to drugs other narcotics. We have taught a historic lesson to the family rule. This will echo for the next 20 years in the eras of all leaders to come.
Western Provincial Councilor / JHU National Organiser, Nishantha Sri Warnasinghe stated these views:
State power was used. State property was used. The state media was used and even the power of money and the power of the military was used. However, we proved to them that over all of those powers, the people’s power is the most strong power. If anyone is attempting to disgrace the people’s mandate or to even challenge it , we will not allow it.
Minister of Power and Energy and Secretary of the JHU, Patali Champika Ranawaka expressed these views:
Previous governments only used the state media. By then the government has used ethanol and purchased two radio stations. They had purchased a news paper through a coal enterprise. If you take a look at the sports sector, another newspaper was purchased via extortion. The drug peddlers operated a separate television service. If he does not leave, he will be forced to leave. This government that has been formed is one that will lay its hand on the wealthy, the casino owners and the smugglers. We have shown that.
