Secretary of the Frontline Socialist Party (FSP), Pubudu Jayagoda said, the appointment of UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe as Prime Minister would only exacerbate the present crisis, while stating that a ‘RanilGoGama’ will soon be set up.
He added that continuous support will be extended to the ‘GotaGoGama’ protest until President Gotabaya Rajapaksa steps down, while adding that the appointment is an imperialist conspiracy and is a betrayal. Jayagoda further said Wickremesinghe, who has failed five times, has now been reappointed as Prime Minister. He further observed that the unruly mobs who attacked peaceful anti-Government protesters on 9 Monday and those who instigated the mob should also be arrested.
