”Mahinda Rajapaksa is promoting extremism” says JVP

The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) today warned the public of extremist groups operating in the North and South.

JVP leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake urged the media not to promote comments being made by those extremist groups.

 He said that while in the South former President Mahinda Rajapaksa is promoting extremism, in the North former Northern Province Chief Minister C.V. Wigneswaran was promoting extremism.

Dissanayake also said that the new Constitution will not be ready by February as claimed by some Parliamentarians.

 He said that there is a long process to finalise a new Constitution and that process is not yet complete.

He told reporters today that the JVP supports drafting a new Constitution.

 However he said the draft Constitution has not yet been finalised so it cannot be ready by February as claimed by some political parties. (Colombo Gazette)
