COLOMBO (News 1st): A conference conducted by Intellectuals for Democracy was held at the foundation institute last evening (November 12). Speaking at this event, JVP Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake revealed that Ranil Wickremesinghe “got stuck” in a political agenda which “he himself initiated”.
The JVP leader went on to say that despite having engaged in politics for 29 years since 1989, the JVP has not even taken a stone. He added that while Ranil Wickremesinghe has many allegations regarding Batalanda, it was all thrown under the carpet by the Bond Scam.
“So they keep on bringing up new topics” – said Anura Kumara.
He also brought up the JVP’s reputation with the incidents of 1988 and 89, saying “they (politicians) bring up that argument at any important political juncture.” However, Anura Kumara added that the JVP has accepted the magnitude of the nature of events, and the amount of mistakes made by them during that period.
“We have always done justice to that part of history and apologized to the general public on a number of occasions for the mistakes we made”. – he added.
