JVP the richest party in the country - JHU

by Bandula Jayasekara
The Island 06JUL2005


The Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) says the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) is the richest party in Sri Lanka. "Only the JVP is in a position to print and paste colourful posters all over the island every week. No other party in the country is in a position to do so," said a JHU heavyweight, who did not want to be identified.

He said "the JVP is funded by two of our neighbours, for geo-political interests. They also get funds from several trusts in Europe established by leftist leaders. The Left is dead in Europe so are their leaders. So, parties such as the JVP benefit from these trusts. They also get funds from Sri Lankans living abroad and these funds continue to flow in".

The top JHU man named the United National Party as the second richest party in Sri Lanka. "The UNP may be having a good network. But, they come second to the JVP. We are small parties. What we can do these days is to watch silently what the two richest parties in the country are doing in trying to out do each other".
