JVP Propaganda Secretary Vijitha Herath has stated that the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna appealed to all both government and oppositionto come forward to defeat the 20th Amendment to the Constitution as it would have serious repercussions on the country.

He was speaking at a news conference recenty. Vijitha Herath said:

“Ministers have been helpless in the Cabinet before the President where they have been forced to approve the 20A without any time to study it. It seems that there is an issue within the government on the 20A. That is why, committees are appointed to study it.

Appointing committees to study the 20A which was approved by the Cabinet clearly shows the rift in the government on the matter. Ministers in the Cabinet had approved it without studying it. They have done so due to fear of the President.

This is not democracy. If there was democracy, ministers would not have been forced to approve it on the same day when the 20A was presented. The normal practice is to allow ministers to study a Cabinet paper for a week. In this case, they were forced to approve it on the same day. Not a single minister had the courage to speak on the report of the Review Committee on 20A during Wednesdays’ Cabinet meeting.

No minister has offered to talk about the 20A at the Cabinet meeting after receiving the report of the Review Committee on 20A. The ministers have been helpless just like belling the cat. The fate of the country was clear from the fate of the Cabinet today. The ministers have become effigies. Even though the government was claiming that amendments to the 20th Amendment to the Constitution would be introduced during the committee stage, no one, not even the government MPs is aware of the said amendments.

JVP will organize seminars to educate people on the repercussions of the 20A.”
