  • JVP has lost its' virginity - Wimal Weerawansa
National Freedom Front Leader, Parliamentarian Wimal Weerawansa addressing his party's "Maha Samuluwa" a short while ago at the Sugathadasa Indoor Stadium in Colombo described the JVP as a party that had lost the virginity and lacked clear policy.

He charged that the heritage of Rohana Wijeweera has been put on wholesale market by the JVP at Ranil Wickremesinghe's political auction.

Weerawansa said the JVP cannot find a presidential candidate and if they had it was futile as in the case of Ranil Wickremesinghe in the UNP."Both these parties now at cross roads have put forward Sarath Fonseka as the bait playing the trmp card to save face", the NFF leader added.

He said the JVP. UNP and other opposition parties have brought in a new "actor" but that actor has to play the role of the former actors who ended up unsuccessful.

Weerawansa noted that the JVP was hanging with Ranil Wickremesinghe seeking a mandate for a just administration and cracked that the so called just administration will only pave the way for the re-emergence of the Batalanda era.

The NFF leader claimed that the UNF document ' Future Challenges' had been printed with foreign funds from an indisclosed sponsor.

He questioned as to why the JVP remained silent in face of Sarath Fonseka's claim that he (Fonseka) would go beyond the 13th amendment to seek a solution to the ethnic problem."If Mahinda Rajapaksa made that statement, the JVP would have taken to street", he noted.

Weerawansa said both the UNP and the JVP were now spent forces in politics without a future."These two parties only believe in animosity and bengeance", he added.
