Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) member K.D Lalkantha has commented on four politicians whom he thinks the JVP can engage politically if the need arises. 

The former MP shared his views during a political interview on YouTube. 

“As a party, there is no official dialog with Dullas Alahapperuma as of now. But I talk to him. I think Anura Kumara, Vijitha Herath, and Harini Amarasuriya talk to him too because they are in the Parliament” he responded when queried if there was any deal between Minister Alahapperuma and the JVP.

“I don’t know what others talk with him, but I talk with him in a friendly manner. While talking we exchange political matters as well,” he went on to say.

Lalkantha also said that Dullas is someone not generally known for corruption and maintains a decent reputation. He also added that there are other such politicians who maintain a similar reputation. 

“There are others, for example, Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) MP Harsha De Silva. There is a view in society that he’s a genuine politician who doesn’t have any accusations of corruption. As per my understanding, I also don’t think he’s a corrupt politician. The same goes with Harin Fernando and Ranjan Ramanayake,” he said.

Lalkantha said there are similar politicians elsewhere as well and if required, the JVP can talk to them and see if they can engage in a new political venture. (NewsWire)
