Thu, May 1, 2014, 10:03 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

May 01, Colombo: The present capitalist government of President Mahinda Rajapaksa has failed to solve economic and political issues in Sri Lanka and pushed the country towards a "deep economic - political - social - cultural precipice," the Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) said today.

The party said the regime has given up production economy and plunging the country in a nefarious economy that is abundant with gambling including online casino, liquor, heroin, prostitution and black money racketeering.

In its May Day Message, the JVP heavily criticized the government for making Sri Lanka "infamous by making it a hideout for local and international bandits, outlaws and gangsters."

The party accused the government of lying to the people about development and said the government does not tell the people that billions of money obtained as loans have been wasted and the country has been imprisoned in a debt trap.

The JVP said all people the Sinhalese, Tamil, Muslim Burgher and Malay masses are increasingly realizing the economic, political and cultural breakdown in the country.

The party invited all "working masses, the farmer community, women, youths, students, professionals, technologists, entrepreneurs, industrialists, artistes, humanitarians and environmentalists to ideologically and organizationally rally round the ant-imperialist, anti-capitalist broad front that is being built with the leadership of the JVP and to struggle until the victory of new Socialism that establishes democracy, equality, national unity and achieve social justice and freedom."
