Apr 27, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Marxist Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna has accused the main opposition United National Party of supporting the Rajapaksas and abandoning its role as an opposition political party.
JVP General Secretary Tilvin Silva told the media that the UNP's decision to second the proposal to appoint Chamal Rajapaksa as Speaker of the seventh parliament has helped the Rajapaksas, also known as the 'Rajapaksa Company', establish their powers even within the parliament.
He said the UNP after raising a massive voice against the Rajapaksas during the last few elections, especially in relation to nepotism, was now shying away from its responsibility of guiding the country in the proper path where democracy is upheld.
He further observed that the UNP was taking every possible step to have cordial relations with the Rajapaksas, whom they have accused of all possible wrongs.
According to Silva, the UNP no longer carried out its work as an opposition political party.
