13th Amendment won't work says JVP

The JVP reiterated their stance that the 13th Amendment to the constitution will not provide a solution to the 'ethnic issue', reports Colombo Page.

Vijitha Herath, named as the Propaganda Secretary by Colombo Page, stressed that the country should not accept any solution imposed on them by another country, and argued that the 13th Amendment had exacerbated the ethnic issue.

Herath said: "The JVP realised this in 1987, but everyone protested against the party at the time."
