New Year message of the JVP
The New Year will be a new energy to start a new political journey. We want to extend our best wishes for the magnificent cultural festival celebrated by the Sinhalese and Tamil people on the occasion of the New Year.
According to traditional belief, New Year’s Eve is considered when the Sun completes a cycle from Pisces to Aries. The New Year festival, which is believed to be associated with newness in every way, is a social phenomenon that positively affects the life of the Sri Lankan people. It gives people the opportunity to get rid of the unnecessary things that have been maintained in their personal life from the materials at home, fill them with freshness, and think anew about their journey so far.
In the economic crisis that is intensifying day by day, it is becoming a challenge for many people to maintain even the life they have maintained until now. Even the thought of celebrating New Year is a painful experience for a vast majority of our people. It is entirely due to the situation created by the failure of the governments that came to power in Sri Lanka, as well as the current government, their inability to solve the people’s problems, large-scale corruption and utter waste discharged throughout the last 75 years. However, the burden of all this ultimately falls on the people.
Although the new year is coming to complete a cycle, the past and current governments have made Sri Lankan society go through the same vicious cycle that disappoints the people. We must now decide as a country and a society to free the country from this evil path and move to a new process to solve people’s problems.
We should not expect an alternative economic strategy from these weak rulers other than the destructive and corrupt economic policy they have been repeating throughout the past. What they show to the masses, whom they have oppressed, as the solution to come out of the crisis is the sale of public resources.
The current failed socio-economic system has forced us to get out of the current vicious socio-economic cycle and move to a more humane and just society. The hope of aligning with a political path that builds a new socio-economic system should also be added to the newness proposed to us by the new year. The country’s 75-year failed course and the past year’s political experience have made everyone think about it with peace of mind. It is the basis of the rising people’s coordination across the country regarding the need for a people’s government. We hope the New Year will be a new energy to start a new political journey that will achieve real victories for the country and the people and build a new society.
