Anura Kumara Challenges Aluthgamage
By Gagani Weerakoon and Methmalie Dissanayake
Jathika Jana Balawegaya (JJB) Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake challenged Agriculture Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage to meet the JVP in Court. Aluthgamage alleged that private companies have bought the JVP and now the party is acting on instructions of those companies. Responding to this allegation, Dissanayake said the JVP will send a Letter of Demand to Aluthgamage over his claims.
“Aluthgamage has to understand that no one can buy the JVP. When farmers in the country are severely affected by the fertiliser crisis, the Government is still in a dreamworld. They have not understood about the gravity of the situation yet. This is a tragedy. Aluthgamage, as the Agriculture Minister has done nothing to solve this problem either,” Dissanayake said.
