Leftists, Progressives should join hands - FSP

Frontline Socialist Party Propaganda Secretary Pubudu Jayagoda requested all Leftists and progressive organizations to get together to find a solution to the present crisis in the country.

He made this request at a press conference held at the Party Office in Battaramulla on Monday.

He said the election that has been called has taken a violent mode and therefore, it could claim the lives of innocents. One such incident was reported from the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation recently, he said.

He pointed out that the present political crisis has a link to the economic crisis. Due to this political instability, there is an effect not only on the investments, but also on business opportunities with the entire world.

He said that the people who voted for the unity government in 2015 had an expectation on democracy. But, this expectation has been betrayed. Therefore, they need a third option. To make it a reality, the people who struggle for education, health, labour, fertilizer subsidy, water, lands, and harbour have to get together.

“Let’s make a common platform for democracy. It cannot be achieved separately. We need a force of the people. Therefore, all Leftists and progressive factions should get together and create a broad front for democracy,” he said.

Jayagoda said their party has still not taken a decision to contest the election.“We are still discussing with our supporting factions and will announce our stance in the future,” he added.
