Govt has not delivered promises, though 100 days have passed … Vijitha Herath

Vijitha Herath

JVP Propaganda Secretary Parliamentarian Vijitha Herath has charged that the government had completed100 days but it had not delivered what it had promised to people to get their votes.

He made these observations addressing the media at the party headquarters in Pelawatte recently.

Vijitha Herath said:

"They promised to dump the agreement with the Millennium Challenge Corporation after coming to power. Instead they have appointed a committee to study pros and cons of the agreement. Now the committee says it is beneficial to the country. They have started selling off lands to foreign companies. They gave three acres near Shangri-La in Colombo to a Singaporean company.

One of the main issues that they made use of at the election was the salary problem of disabled soldiers. That problem has not been solved yet. They promised to give fertiliser free of charge to farmers. Not even the markets have fertiliser for farmers to buy them. The government promised a bag of relief items worth 3,000 rupees a month to every needy family. It has not yet been given. Prices of vegetables are soaring.

Government has also been unable to fulfil its pledges made to State employees and pensioners, where the issues related to retired/disabled soldiers and pensioners had not been addressed during the past three months. The retired/disabled soldiers are taking to streets again to win their demands. The Government has slashed the circular to increase pension payment.

Though the Government had promised to provide fertiliser free of charge, fertiliser is not available in the market even for the cultivators to purchase. The low-income families were promised a Rs. 3,000 relief package, whereas the prices of essential commodities are skyrocketing.”
