“Ranil, let’s see if the power lies in the constitution or decrees or the power of the people,” said JVP leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake while addressing the Red May rally. He also said that the Ranil-Mahinda Ali Kaputu alliance will not take this country even an inch forward. He also said, “Because we have a responsibility for the people, we cannot step on a false grave or death row.” The JVP leader also said:
“Today in Campbell, Hydepark, Gunasinghapura, JVP is the topic everywhere. They are so bankrupt. Looks like there was just a dog crow charity in Campbell. Gunasinghapura Swamp. Today we have entered this country into a very important power struggle. It must be said that this battle ends with victory. Today, 68% of our people have reduced their food intake. Some have reduced the amount of food. Some people are used to eating foods they don’t like.
And 78% cannot afford medicine. 88% do not have education, health. take a loan Either the goods are pawned. The rulers have appointed the country to this kind of place. People live in a very difficult place. These rulers will not advance this country even an inch due to this crisis. Ranil, Mahinda and Ali Kaputu will not take this country forward even an inch. They have rejected all the people. Can such a rejected regime build a country? It is the group that is with the common people of this country that will save the country. That group is just us. Others have been rejected by the people. They have led the country to a point of destruction.
Now this government has gone to the International Monetary Fund and says that the country is on a new track. Going to this financial fund is not a new thing. Every day an economic recipe is presented to the countries by the financial fund. It says to abandon government institutions. Abandoned today’s industries. The earlier textile colonies were abandoned. Fabrics were imported from abroad. Eighty-eight government agencies have been sold by the existing governments in the past decades. The path proposed by Ranil is not the path of building the economy. What are the rulers who sell institutions to strengthen foreign reserves? This is called begging. All that is profitable is sold.
These are sold to save time. Not to build the economy without that. Ranil has no other answer except to sell things and eat in the country. It is being proudly said everywhere to cut off the world’s debts. They go to China, India, Japan, Paris Club and ask them to cut the debt. An international organization was hired to hire it. This Ranil is a ruler. People were waiting for foreign debt to be cut. The population is two million and twenty lakh. The loan is 27 lakh crores. Fourteen lakh crores of this is foreign debt. 13 lakh crore domestic loan. Cut the government’s domestic debt
Also, Ranil is threatening the banks to cut local loans. The debt is going to be cut in May. That is why Ranil is threatening the banks today. People deposit money on the trust of the bank. The government steals that money and takes people’s money to stop that theft. 3,500 billion rupees have been loaned to the government from the Employees’ Provident Fund. That debt is going to be written off. The government is now charging hundreds of thousands for courses that were taught for free. The International Monetary Fund suggests to balance the budget. That is how these things are done. The economy has taken a beating. The people have been oppressed.
Ranil sells and eats. We also emphasize that the people are not looking shyly at these. We are ready to stand up with the people. Ranil is fighting within the parliament and the constitution. We are with a people’s force. Let’s see. People power? Or Ranil’s established constitutions. Now laws are being brought to stop people’s protest. They can’t speak or write because of them. People are oppressed alone. We will defeat this with every action.
It seems that the pohottu group of parliamentarians are on Ranil’s property bail. Ranil seems to have given his life to Pohottuwa. This corrupt group completely destroyed the country. Bills were brought and passed. They are only white papers before public opinion. People do not allow Ranil to park in the camps. This May Day is the May Rally in which the Tamil people and Muslims from all over the North participated the most.
A May rally that was integrated from all directions. Every political group uses different races for politics. But there has been a political movement that has brought us all to one place. Only we can bring the people from all directions of this country on the same platform. The lives of the people in the north have been severely affected for a long time. Waiting without solutions. These politicians do anything for their power. There are people who don’t have a house of their own in the plantation. 50 percent of the population is in poverty line.
Children under the age of five are malnourished. Eight months ago, the United Nations presented a survey report. According to the survey report, the plantation people are known as slave tenants. Sri Lanka is such a country. We have been through a very difficult period in this politics for a long time. But we have a belief that we should not give up. What was not listened to yesterday is listened to today. What is not listened to today will be listened to tomorrow. Every ruler has to listen to the people.
So let’s face forward with courage. All the people in the country and abroad have put their trust in us. Today, all political parties have collapsed and been destroyed in public frustration and rejection. I am thankful at this moment to everyone who helped write a word for us. Our primary task is over. But the final task is crucial. Ranil is calling the May rally today via Zoom saying he is non-partisan. Can’t go to people. It is not Ranil’s non-partisanship.
That is why we emphasize that Ranil’s power is in the constitution and decrees or the power of the people. These two are tied. The weight of the scale is on the side of the people. It’s a critical shift. Therefore, we cannot step on the false pit or death row. We have a responsibility towards the people.
