Presidential poll: JVP to go it alone if an ambitious bid to reach consensus on a national plan with Mr. Mahinda Rajapakse failed to materialise.

    I have only two words for this claim by the JVP.

    BULL SH*T.. :) :)

    The JVP will never go it alone. THey will support Mahinda regardless of what Mahinda agrees to or not.

    The JVP needs Mahinda as much as Mahinda needs the JVP. If the JVP contests alone, their TRUE strength will be exposed and the JVP will NEVER EVER take that risk.

    The JVPs demands are not acceptable to Mahinda because he knowns he can never rule a country and keep the pomises made to the JVP. So the two have to work out a way to Hood wink the people and somehow WORD the agreement in such a way as to show the people that both got what they wanted.

    Once they figure out the WORDING, the alliance will come into the Open. Its just a matter of time. They will side step all the key issues like like they did in the so called KATA perata Manefesto. Remember how they side stepped the Peace process saying `We will cross that hurdle when we get there` and we all know how they crossed that hurdle dont we??? :) :)

    Does this mean that the JVP will get Mahinda Rajapassa to grow a Che Guevera like beard?

    Grotesque!

    Let us get this election idiocy over with quickly!

    The JVP seeks to enter into agreement with Mahinda R based on a common understanding regarding the N.E.crisis, Joint

    tsunami aid sharing, privatization and education.

    In regards to the N.E. crisis the SLFP has vacillated for over 20 years.Along with the JVP the party has opposed any devolution in the form of District Development Councils, Provincial councils (although both parties are in the PC`s now)The President who came to power in 1994 with a promise of ushering in peace has been reluctantly compelled to negotiate a settlement on the lines of a Federal solution.The UNP on the other hand has been consistent in its policy of resolving the N.E. crisis based on devolution of power.

    As to the tsunami aid sharing there is a greater commonality between the UNP and the SLFP than the JVP and the SLFP.

    On the question of privatization as the JVP member Lal Kantha pointed out the SLFP has privatized more ventures in the last 7 years than the UNP did in 17 years including the national carrier air lanka.The UNP has been consistent in their policy in this regard.

    Privatization of education-The President last week blasted the JVP quite rightly re the opposition to private schools and universities being established in Sri Lanka and pointed out that over 500 million can be saved.

    It is clear from the above that the policies of the SLFP and JVP are opposed to each other and any agreement reached will be soley for the purpose of patching up the differences and duping the voter in the form of another `Rata Perata` manifesto.

    It is to the credit of Ranil and the UNP that they are consistent in their stands on issues of public importance and are 100 years ahead of the SLFP and 500 years ahead of the JVP.I would wish the voters will make an enlightened decision on election day, other wise they will get a President/Government that they deserve.

    OH my Sun goat!

    Is Ranilchelvam going to be the THIRD!

    Hope JVP will be able to arive at a compromise situation with Mahinda R...

    otherwise it gives the traitor P.ranil an undue advantage...which is a disaster for the country and the public...

    chao...

    JVP and JHU are obliged to support Mr.Mahinda.

    If JVP wants to contest alone it will be the end of a racist and radical party in Sri Lanka

    If Mr.Ranil elected sinhalese people can enjoy peace,employment and good food.

    But, for a bad chance, if Mr.Ranil is defeated people in south will have to control their day time meals because the war will continue under JVP supported SLFP President.

    I wish to advise our sinhalese people to think twice bdfore you all go for voting. Keept in your mind Mr.ranil will bring peace and food for you but if you vote Mr.mahinde or JVP you will have to count your days of your life.

    Hela Urumeeyas are jokers - bunch of homointimacyual priests

  • 28 Aug 2005 13:22:32 GMT

    Hemananda,

    you are mistaken...i do not think they(JHU) have any link with P.ranil and the gang...

    chao...

    Anizam`s observation on this issue is perfectly correct.

    A further point is that there is no difference in the positions of Ranil or Mahinda on the question of the Oslo led peace process.Will the JVP once again demand the abolition of the Presidency, as they did from Chandrika?

    The basic truth is that the SLFP/JVP which have no consistent policy on any matter of public importance will once again come forward with a kata perata manifesto with the sole purpose of duping the voters.

    Lets hope the voters will reject the parties that have only offered slogans and no solutions to the burning issues the country is faced with.
