Events took place in various areas to commemorate the JVP comrades who strengthened their struggle in 1971. The main events were held in Anuradhapura, Panadura and Deniyaya area.

JVP MP, Sunil Handunnetti:

While some may criticise this as a struggle, some may define this a as an armed struggle,one thing that is clear is that you cannot erase the 5th of April from the Sri Lankan political calendar and mainly the heroes of 71. Therefore, April 5, is a day that anyone not connected to politics will also understand – that it is a day attached to the JVP

JVP MP, Vijitha Herath noted that the pension in abolished and there is no more subsidy for the fertiliser. There is no fertilizer subsidy for tea, fruits and vegetables because this upper class cannot move ahead in this model of economics and their policy is to rip off the downtrodden, and the real answer will come only after this economic system is changed.
