When there is no national unity there cannot be public security says the Leader of the JVP Comrade Anura Dissanayaka.
He said this at a seminar organized by the JVP on ‘Our mission to defeat extremism, build national unity and affirm public security’ held at Hatton – Dickoya town Hall yesterday (15th).

Speaking further Comrade Anura Dissanayaka said the three services and the police alone cannot establish national unity in the country.

The May Day commemoration organized by the JVP was held at the head office of the JVP at Pelawatta today (1st) with the slogans “Deplore committing murders! Defeat all extremisms! Build unity among people! ‘

The International Workers’ Day that falls on 1st May is a day commemorated by the working people including the downtrodden masses with dignity. May Day is the day the working masses show their strength, unity and militancy and also their readiness to struggle for their rights and for a new society.

The International Workers’ Day was created to commemorate the workers’ leaders who laid down their lives at the struggle launched by workers in Chicago in 1886 against the oppression and suppression of capitalism and demanding an 8-hour working day. 1st of May was named the International Workers’ Day by the first congress of the Second International that met in Paris in 1889. Hence, May Day is a day that belongs to the working masses lead by the working class and the left movements.

It is evident that the attack on the 21st was an Islam extremist barbaric attack. What is to be done now is to take measures to totally defeat Islam extremist ideology, individual and organizations that follow it. However, the measures being taken by the government don’t seem to be successful. The country cannot be brought back to normalcy without defeating this Islam extremist ideology. Mr Maithripala Sirisena as the President and Mr Ranil Wickremesinghe as the Prime Minister, instead of acting in a responsible manner for the country and the people, acted only as the leader of the SLFP or the leader of the UNP respectively from the day they came to power. They fought among themselves and wasted time plotting and conspiring against each other and endangered the national security. The conduct of the President and the Prime Minister after the incidents on the 21st was not a responsible one for the security of the Nation or the people. Both of them attempted to evade responsibility and put it on someone else’s shoulder but to carry out their power agendas. The statements made as the government were contradictory, false, infantile and immature ones. It was proved that they, leave alone the responsibility of the national security, do not deserve even to be a night watchman in a cooperative store.

Let’s stop pointing fingers at each other and making statements and behaving in a manner to get petty political advantage amidst barbaric Islamic extremists’ bomb attacks but overlook party politics at least for a short period and work according to a national agenda to avoid the country becoming a prey to this calamity says the Information Secretary of the JVP Comrade Vijitha Herath.

He said this participating in the debate on emergency regulations held in Parliament yesterday (24th).
