It has been reported that despite reporting by the intelligence sections, the government did not take protective measures and the responsibility for the utter negligence should be borne not by one section but by the whole government including the cabinet says the Information Secretary of the JVP Comrade Vijitha Herath speaking about the brutal bomb attacks that were carried out at different places in the island yesterday (21st).
He said this speaking at a press conference held at the head office of the JVP today (22nd).
The attacks carried out yesterday were barbaric, inhuman acts and swift legal action should be taken against all those who were involved in such attacks said Comrade Vijitha Herath. He emphasized that using the attacks to carry out various political agendas and slander each other should be stopped immediately.
Comrade Vijitha Herath pointed out that all those who died in the barbaric attacks were ordinary people and no one was involved in the ongoing political struggle in the country. He said All Sinhalese, Tamil, Muslim, Malay and Burgher masses who live in this country should rise up as Sri Lankans against the barbaric act.
He said although officials involved in national security had warned about such a situation, the rulers had not paid attention to such warnings and added that rulers carrying out their affairs only regarding their power interests contributed to the pathetic situation the country and the people have been subjected to.
