SJB’s May Day Rally unveils extensive electoral commitments, probe into Easter Sunday genocide and smart development initiatives

May 02, Colombo (LNW): In a comprehensive array of electoral commitments, the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) unveiled a series of pledges during its May Day rally, outlining proposed actions upon assuming office.

The pledges encompassed a wide spectrum, including the full implementation of the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, a thorough probe into the Easter Sunday carnage, initiatives to foster smart farming and fishing practices, the creation of investor-friendly environments, the generation of employment opportunities, and the establishment of Silicon Valley-style IT hubs in every district.

Additional commitments featured plans to offer higher interest rates on deposits for senior citizens and the establishment of smart educational facilities.

Notably absent were proposals specifically addressing labour rights, a focal theme on International Workers’ Day.

Addressing the rally, SJB leader Sajith Premadasa emphasised the party’s dedication to fulfilling its promises, highlighting a commitment to inclusivity, minority rights, and counter-extremism efforts.

He pledged to initiate fresh investigations into the Easter Sunday attacks, vowing to bring the perpetrators to justice in collaboration with the Archbishop of Colombo, His Eminence Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith.

Premadasa pledged to revoke all existing liquor licences through parliamentary resolution upon assuming governance.

Furthermore, the Opposition Leader emphasised the integrity of his party members, affirming their resistance to monetary inducements.
