Sajith’s call for election now displays his utter immaturity....Anura charges

Anura Dissanayake

JVP Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake has criticized the call made by Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa for an election as an utterly immature, irresponsible statement.

He made this observation addressing a press conference in Colombo on Sunday, September 12. Anura said:

"We dismiss Opposition Leader Sajith’s call for an election during the pandemic as a cheap attempt to grab power. The JVP will not support it. Sajith wants to secure power at any cost and he sees the current situation as an ideal opportunity to fulfill his agenda.

It is true that the government has lost its popularity. But, is it an appropriate time to conduct an election under these circumstances? Do you think a person with the right frame of mind will come up with such a suggestion? Before the last parliamentary election, everyone called for its postponement due to the pandemic. At that point, the daily death toll stood at less than three and only 100-200 were tested positive on a daily basis.

Today, thousands of people are dying and Premadasa wants an election. Please ask someone to check his brain. Does anyone think that parliament should be dissolved and an election be held at this point? The opposition’s role under the circumstances is to propose solutions to the crises to turn the situation around. Whether they accept these proposals or not is a different matter.”
