Champika throws gauntlet at JVP over accusations
Samagi Jana Balavegaya (SJB) MP Champika Ranawaka has invited JVP leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake to have a face to face dialogue if the latter has suspicions regarding the work he carried out as a minister. Ranawaka said he has recently noticed a trend where he has being targeted by low rankers in the JVP and that false allegation is being made against him.
“In addition, several members at higher level are confirming these allegations in an indirect manner and as a result of their making some statements that seem to aid those accusations”, he said
MP Champika Ranawaka said that news items regarding the Orchid Garden at Water’s Edge and the fact that he was said to have obtained commissions in respect of the Emission Test he introduced during his tenure as Environment Minister are being spread around as propaganda by lower ranked members of the JVP in an organized manner and the fact that some top leaders of the JVP are aiding and abetting these statements can be pointed out as the closest example.
The MP said further that this situation is not good and what happens as a result is, that splits are caused among forces that worked together with unity against corrupt, unwise and arbitrary administrations and argue with each other on unnecessary matters.
