Mahinda’s magicians


JVP General Secretary, Tilvin Silva recently called Ministers, Wimal Weerawansa, Champika Ranawaka and Johnston Fernando magicians in President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s cabinet.

Weerawansa and Ranawaka are both ex-JVPers while Fernando’s political origin is in the UNP.

Addressing the 41 anniversary of the 1971 JVP uprising, the JVPer ridiculed the three ministers for talking rubbish in the face of growing economic difficulties, power crisis and isolation among the global community.

The Marxist alleged that Ranawaka facing an uphill task in ensuring uninterrupted power supply was talking nonsense, while Weerawansa tried to exploit the human rights issue to his advantage.

He waded into Johnston on the cost of living issue.
