The JVP says it is apparent that there was political involvement behind the incident in which eggs were thrown at a conference organized by the National People’s Power in Kalagedihena, Gampaha.
Speaking during a media briefing in Colombo Parliamentarian Vijitha Herath said since Minister Prasanna Ranatunga sent a letter to the Inspector General of Police soon after the incident it is clear who is behind the attack.
He added no individual can conceal the fact that there was political involvement behind the incident.
The MP noted the people are aware of the truth, despite efforts to conceal such matters.
MP Vijitha Herath further said illegal groups cannot be used to stop the journey of the NPP, adding such groups cannot hinder their journey.
He added engaging in such efforts, will only lead to further displeasure amongst the public.
MP Herath noted the NPP is a people’s movement created with the people’s power.
He said the incident was planned and not a coincidence, adding a member who attended the conference also sustained injuries when attempting to contain the situation, and had to get four stitches.
He said a complaint was lodged with the Nittambuwa Police over the incident. The MP urged the government to refrain from using mobsters for such activities.
