We don't do politics on Ranil's lap, nor do we do politics on Mahinda's lap, we are principled: Anura Kumara Dissanayake

Anura-Kumara-Dissanayake

JVP Leader Anura has observed that the JVP does not do politics on Ranil's lap or on Mahinda's lap. It has a political ideology and it engages in politics according to the principles it is committed to.

He was addressing a meeting held at Namal Oya in Ampara District recently. He made this observation in response to a charge made by former President Mahinda Rajapakse that Aunra has a deal with Ranil.

During his speech, Anura said:

"The essence of what Mahinda Rajapakse said was that we are protecting the government but are directing our attacks against him. We do not do politics on Ranil's lap. We do not do politics on Mahinda's lap either. For, we are not indebted to them. The words he uses are not appropriate for his age. Hence, I ask him to get used to using words with restraint.

However, I would like to ask Mr Mahinda Rajapaksa how much protection has he got from this government? When Shiranthi Rajapaksa was about to be arrested Mahinda spoke to Ranil. Then who applies oil on Ranil? It's Mahinda. Why is the investigation into Thajudeen's murder stopped halfway? How did investigations into Lasantha Wickrematunge's murder stop? These investigations are halted on an agreement reached between Mahinda and Ranil. As such, we do not have anything to get protection from Ranil or to get him to save for us. Who needs protection from Ranil and save from him? It is for Rajapaksas."
