Dec 16, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) urges public to stand against the large scale corruption in the country and express their opposition during elections that are to be held next year.
JVP Central Committee member, Western Provincial Councilor Dr. Nalinda Jayatissa said at a public gathering in Matugama that the level of corruption within the government has reached great heights that even spouses of ministers have started to complain about corruption.
"The government claims to work for the benefit of the people, especially children, but has so far failed to do so. The government is wasting public funds and engages in corruption," he charged.
He noted that the people's hard earned monies are used to cover the wasteful expenditure of the government and the corruption.
According to Dr. Jayatissa, the government is under the misguided notion that all its misdeeds are forgiven by the people and that they will vote for the governing party at the elections, but it will not be so since the people are now beginning to see the truth.
