The JVP has condemned the government’s move to suddenly increase the prices of gas and fuel.
The JVP issuing a statement has said the increase of gas prices by Rs. 238, along with the prices of diesel and petrol would burden the people.
The party states people will be burdened further, as transport, goods and services costs will go up with the fuel and gas price increases.
According to the JVP, the government had used the World Cup finals to take the people’s attention away from the price increases.
The party has called on the people to rally against the present regime and its economic policies.
