JVP vows to defeat constitutional changes by UPFA government

[TamilNet, Sunday, 13 June 2010, 13:48 GMT]
The Sinhala Marxist Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) Sunday declared that it would take all necessary steps to defeat the attempt by the ruling United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) government to change the constitution to suit to its political agenda. The JVP would muster the support of other opposition parties to prevent a two-thirds majority in Parliament for the government to bring about constitutional changes, JVP parliamentary group leader of the JVP led Democratic National Alliance (DNA) Anura Kumara Dissanayake said at a media briefing held Sunday.

Meanwhile, the JVP General Secretary Tilvin Silva alleged in an interview with the Sunday Leader that India is trying to build a power base affiliated to it in the North and East of Sri Lanka by calling for the full implementation of the 13th Amendment to the Constitution.

Since the government had not implemented the 13th Amendment in full since it was introduced 22 years ago through the Indo-Lanka Accord, the Indian government was now exerting pressure on Sri Lanka for its full implementation.

They want provincial councils to be established in the North and East and merge the two provinces in order to build a power base that would be affiliated with India, he said.
