Convening a media briefing on Wednesday, the Unity Through Power Devolution Movement expressed views on the protest which was staged by the Frontline Socialists Party on Tuesday, January 19.
Leader of the Nava Sama Samaja Party, Dr. Wickramabahu Karunaratne noted that they did not resort to tear gas for the protest march of the Frontline Socialist Party, it was easily dispersed with water cannons.
He added that they cannot figure out what is happening since there are passport issues, even though Wimal Weerawansa had to face such an issue, he was able to resolve it.
He went on to note that the people are allowed to rally suddenly by the police as they walk along the protestors with smiles, and when they reach an end point they put up barricades and fire water cannons.
Explaining further, he noted that Ranil Wickremesinghe is a “cunning figure” although he calls himself J.R. Jayawardene’s son in law, he works like J.R. Jayawardene’s uncle.
Furthermore, he added that complications have come up as to whether the PM asked the leaders of the Frontline Socialist Party to casually march there and once they do, they would be dispersed with a little tear gas and water cannons, and that neither of them will have any issue.
