The JVP and civil society organisations are planning to stage a combined rally on January 8 in a bid to remind the government of all the promises they had made to the people one year ago.

The Propaganda Secretary of the JVP, Vijitha Herath said that President Sirisena and Prime Minister Wickremesinghe had made many promises to the people prior to the elections, including the abolishing of the executive presidency, investigating large scale fraud and corruption, limiting of the number of Cabinet Ministers, implementing the right to information laws, etc. However, it’s nearly over a year since the establishment of the good governance regime, but so far the government has failed to adhere to their pledges convincingly, said Herath.

Therefore, the JVP and the university lecturers, lawyers, artists and civil societies will join in this rally at the Ananda Samarakone open air theatre in Nugegoda at 3 pm on January 8, in order to remind the government of their promises to the people.
