Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna Politburo Member K.D. Lalkantha refuted allegations that it has been inactive on the water pollution incident in the Kelani River, adding that the party has raised the issue with all relevant authorities.

Speaking to Asian Mirror, Lalkantha said that the JVP contacted all relevant officials, government institutions and the political authorities, requesting a speedy solution to the problem.

The relevant institutions gave an assurance that the issue would be resolved quickly, Lalkantha said.

If the authorities do not give a proper solution, the JVP will then take action as required, he stressed, adding that protests and even legal action could be launched in that event.

Some activists, especially on social media, had questioned the apparent silence of the JVP on the issue. Meanwhile, speaking with Asian Mirror NFF leader Wimal Weerawansa questioned JVP leader Anura Dissanayake's silence on the incident.
