Wickremesinghe’s appointment; a manipulated move – JVP


The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) has regarded claims of Ranil Wickremesinghe being appointed as the Prime Minister as a manipulated move to save the Rajapaksa’s.

Speaking at a press briefing held this afternoon (12), JVP General Secretary Tilvin Silva asserted that no government formed under President Gotabaya Rajapaksa will be accepted by the people, revealing that Wickremesinghe was the mastermind behind the Central Bank bond scam.

Silva further pointed out that the current government was formed with the intention of sending Wickremesinghe away, regarding Rajapaksa’s belief that Wickremesinghe is fit for Premiership despite he himself having previously ousted the former PM as ‘the biggest joke in politics’.

JVP Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake also regarded Wickremesinghe as the Rajapaksa’s ‘saviour’, adding that no one believes that the Wickremesinghe-Rajapaksa combo can solve the ongoing crisis.

Ranil believes Gotabaya, and Gotabaya believes Ranil. This is all that will happen”, he said.
