Racism sown either to remain in power or to usurp power: Anura (Video)


JVP Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake has observed that racism was being sown by those who are in power to remain in power and by the losers to usurp power.

He made the observations taking part in the Adjournment Debate in Parliament that discussed the prevailing tense situation between communities in the country at the moment.

He went on that a tribal political culture based on racism has enveloped the island nation. JVP struggled to build national unity. But it has not been able to achieve it. Instead, racism and tribalism had dominated politics. The Sinhala - Muslim conflict would create only two rival communities making neither safe. These incidents did not take place spontaneously so tribalism should be defeated.
