A movement called ‘Pivithuru Hetak’ (A Cleaner Tomorrow) was set up by the Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) with the main objective of taking the country in the right path by cooperating to its primary goals towards development in all aspects was formed under the leadership of JHU parliamentarian Ven. Athuraliye Rathana Thera.
“Even after defeating the LTTE, still certain powerful forces in the international sphere are continuously taking action against Sri Lanka by charging the country for violating human rights. We should not take these chargers lightly,” the movement said. The movement will take all steps to make the public aware of these serious threats.
However the country will have to work hard towards making the country the ‘Wonder of Asia.’ The movement said after eradicating terrorism the country had taken the initial steps to spread electricity in the island, improve health to modern standards, uplift education and protect free education while developing basic infrastructure facilities for the people. The movement would also focus on pushing the authorities to bring down corruption and enforce the law against any individual who engages in such activities which tarnish the image of the government.
The movement also called on authorities to take adequate steps to bring an end to political rivalry ending unfortunately in the use of firearms. Such incidents should not take place again.
“We propose that 70 per cent of the public representatives should be elected from divisional representation and the rest from the proportional representation,” the movement said.
“Restructuring education should be conducted after having discussions with the intellectuals in the field. Private investment in education should be agreed to by all parties within the education system,” the movement further said.
The movement also said it would also make sure the steps taken to uplift standards in sports, culture, arts and agriculture continues in the right path.
