Mon, Jan 28, 2013, 09:57 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 28, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) says the government has suffered fatal injuries in its fight to impeach Chief Justice Dr. Shirani Bandaranayake.

JVP parliamentary group leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake said the victory achieved by the government by removing the Chief Justice is temporary due to the fatal injuries suffered by the government during the fight.

Speaking during a seminar organized by the party in Gampaha, Dissanayake noted that the government had not made any decision considering the plight of the people.

He said that all decisions taken by the government have been aimed at concentrating power on the First Family.

He has explained that currently all arms of the government are headed by either a member of the First Family or someone affiliated to the family.

According to the JVP MP, the government's future actions would deepen the wounds already sustained by it resulting in its ultimate destruction.

Dissanayake has called on the people to fight for freedom, democracy and their rights.
