* 'Marxism is still practical and applicable to Sri Lanka' - JVP
Wed, Mar 26, 2014, 09:17 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Mar 26, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) says that Marxism is still a practical philosophy that should be applied in today's context and it is applicable to Sri Lanka.

JVP Leader for the Western Province, K.D. Lal Kantha says that Marxism has many qualities to address the issues faced by the people. However, he observed that Marxism has to be used in a way which is applicable to today's context.

"For instance countries like Cuba and North Korea are countries which use Marxism applicable in today's context," Lal Kantha said.

He explained that people connected with the entire production process do not get their fair share in a Capitalist system and only a minority of wealthy people receives the benefits.

"If someone works hard he should be eligible to get what he deserves. But this never happens in a Capitalist society. Clearly Sri Lanka has a capitalist system at present. We believe Marxism is still practical and it is applicable to Sri Lanka as well," Lal Kantha said.
