Five proposals from Sri Lanka Marxist party to alleviate foreign interference

May 22, Colombo: Sri Lanka Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) announced that they would move five proposals to the government in order take positive steps to guarantee democracy.

The five proposals that are set forth are the removal of emergency regulations, abolition of Prevention of Terrorism Act, release of Sarath Fonseka, release of Tamil political prisoners, and assuring media freedom.

Addressing a press briefing held in Colombo today, JVP politburo member Anura Kumara Dissanayake said that the JVP would organize a broad front to struggle for democracy and good governance unless the government responded to the proposals mooted by them.

He further said that repressive laws maintained by the government paved way for the foreign elements to meddle in the internal affairs of the country.
