‘MS made contradictory claims over solving crisis’

The JVP has accused President Maithripala Sirisena of making contradictory statements pertaining to solving the present political crisis within a week.

Speaking at a media breifing at the party headquarters this morning JVP Parliamentarian Vijitha Herath said Mahinda Rajapaksa and his group is also making contradictory statements in this regard.

MP Herath noted that last Tuesday the President said that he will solve the present crisis within a week adding however today, it’s one day short of a week, and the President is now saying that he will wait for the Court verdict.

The MP stated when the crisis broke out, MPs Udaya Gammanpila and Wimal Weerawansa made statements saying if the President’s decision was wrong, to take it up before Court adding however that the President is now saying that he personally believes that factions should not have gone before Court to resolve the issue.

MP Vijitha Herath added that Mahinda Rajapaksa is saying that an issue that should have been solved in Parliament, has caused chaos by going before Court.
