The National Movement for Social Justice says it is very important for every responsible party, including every citizen, to have a proper understanding of the true nature of the serious crisis that our country is facing today.
Chairman of the Movement Karu Jayasuriya said at this moment, one cannot avoid raising the question as to whether all parties are working with a real understanding of the great danger the country is facing.
He noted that the Movement raises this issue with a sincere feeling about the entire nation, without any power aspiration or patronage of any political camp, and because we have a responsibility to inherit a progressive country for the future generations without being trapped by race, caste, religion or other narrow limits.
Karu Jayasuriya said today Sri Lanka is not in a situation where we can divide and fight with each other for power, but in a situation where the country needs to be built by putting collective responsibility in front.
The statement said it is very important that the government all other political parties and institutions that have to deal with national responsibility, and all citizens in general understand the need of the hour.
Therefore, he appealed to all parties at this moment to stop all activities that may hinder the wellbeing of the country, at least for a certain period of time.
Jayasuriya said they believe that it is important for the government to listen to the people’s sentiments and understand the issues well and resolve the issues through the Parliament.
The Movement also pointed out the need to hold elections in a timely manner while respecting the people’s opinion.
