* Sri Lanka Marxist party presents its new policy framework to professionals
Sat, Feb 15, 2014, 02:37 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 15, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) has decided to have a broad dialogue with professionals and various organizations of professionals on the party's new policy framework.

Accordingly, the new leader of the JVP MP Anura Dissanayaka presented the party's 'Our Vision' policy framework to the President of the Bar Association of Sri Lanka (BASL) Upul Jayasuriya Friday (14th).

Speaking at the occasion, the JVP lawmaker said the party believes that the five hubs put forward by President Mahinda Rajapaksa leads the country towards destruction.

"The knowledge hub is slashing the right of the children in this country for education. The commerce hub has made Sri Lanka a hub of heroin and ethanol. SriLankan and Mihin Air, the two enterprises that suffer the biggest losses, are to be the 'aviation hub' and the ever losing Ceylon Electricity Board and Ceylon Petroleum Corporation are to be made the hub of power and energy. Also, this country is going to be made a tourist hub by filling the country with heroin and ethanol, "he explained.

"As such, the economic policy of this government and its practices would only drag the country towards destruction and tribulation," Dissanayake further said.

Jayasuriya speaking at the occasion said the BASL hopes to convene a people’s platform against this situation.

"We are at a juncture, not only the Bar Association but all professionals need to be aware of it. We would study the policy framework put forward by the JVP and then express our views regarding it," he said.
