We are ready for a political program aimed at power says Leader of the JVP Anura Dissanayake. “This country must be built. Should be made a good state. The National People’s Power NPP is ready to take responsibility for that. We are ready to not only remain in an influence group but also to transform into a power sharing group. We are ready to implement a political program aimed at power. I invite the people of this country to unite around the National People’s Force” said Anura Kumara Dissanayake.
The election of the current President and the granting of nearly 2 / 3rds of the power in the Parliamentary Elections hid the confidence of the people in President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and the rejection of the people by the 2015-2019 government. Both these factors are reflected in the election results received by the present government.
But it has been more than 1 and 1/2 years since he came to power. Many who voted in the hope of rebuilding the country are now frustrated and deceived, leading to protests. Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s rule has come unpopular in a very short period of time in recent times.
Although he has many personal weaknesses, this is not his only personal weakness. It is the result of a long history of economic and political policy. It will only intensify during the presidency. In this way our country and people have no future. The deepest economic crisis in our country has been created by focusing on debt. The income received by the treasury is not enough to pay the loan installments and interest.
There is a situation where the dollar earned in a year is not enough to pay the interest installments. Due to this the government prints a lot of money. One trillion rupees has been printed after the present government came to power. In one day this week, over 200 billion rupees were printed.
