JVP Politburo member KD Lalkantha says the only alternative the people have to the prevailing crisis in the country is a government led by the National People’s Power.
Speaking to media in Kandy, Lalkantha said the future generation will be affected if the public continues to chase other factions, instead of seeking an alternative.
Lalkantha said the dollar crisis and issues stemming from China cannot be solved with a government that leeches off the Treasury.
Lalkantha said the only solution was to elect a government that will not commit thievery and will reclaim all state assets.
The former MP said they are expecting a win at the upcoming election through their current course of action.
He said they requested the public to grant them a strong standing in the opposition and requested the public to grant them governing powers.
Lalkantha added the present administration has backed the country to a corner.
Lalkantha claimed submitting proposals to the present government to solve prevailing issues in the country is futile.
He added Parliament is populated with puppets and not public representatives adding the Executive Presidency does not suit the country.
He said the country needs a collective governing mechanism.
The former MP said irrespective of a 2/3 majority all MPs will be puppets of the Executive President.
