JVP opens office in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Sunday, 21 March 2010, 17:15 GMT]
Somawansa Amarasinghe, the leader of Jantha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), opened the JVP office for Jaffna peninsula Sunday afternoon in Uduppiddi-Valveddiththu’rai area on Jaffna-Point Pedro road, sources in Jaffna said. The JVP leader said that while governments of United National Party (UNP), Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) and the ruling United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) had killed innocent Tamils and subjected them to untold difficulties in the past, JVP had not killed a single Tamil. He further stressed that JVP is not a racist party as some call it. JVP is opening its office in Jaffna after 27 years. Prior to 1983 when Rohana Wijeweera led JVP there were JVP offices in Jaffna, Chu’n’naakam and Ki’linochchi.

Only around 40 people had turned up for the above event and they too were the relatives of the Tamil candidate fielded to contest Jaffna electorate in JVP ticket.

The said candidate’s sister is married to a Sinhalese serving in Sri Lanka Police department, the sources said.

Somawansa who was accompanied by former JVP parliamentarian Chandrasekaran in the event said that JVP had always demanded a just solution for the Tamils.

Somawansa also said that the office is not opened for the sake of the forthcoming parliamentary election and added that it would continue to serve the Tamils in the peninsula.
