JVP refutes claims, seeks legal action
By Nabiya Vaffoor
The JVP refuted allegations publicised by a local website claiming that the party has spent Rs. 50 million on a social media campaign aimed at Presidential Election in 2024. JVP MP Vijitha Herath claimed that this was another failed attempt by the Government to ruin the reputation of their party and legal actions should be taken on the fake documents used in the said web article.
“We have no connections with the advertising agency mentioned in the article. This is nothing but bogus information to tarnish the party’s reputation. The said article was fabricated based on a document which had used a fake rubber seal and forged signatures of our party leaders,” added Herath. Herath urged the public to understand the ‘cheap tricks’ used by the ruling party to distract them from following a better political vision. It is reported that the JVP is planning to institute legal action against the website.
