The JVP says it will hold its May Day rally on the 1st of May in Jaffna.
Speaking at a media briefing held in Colombo today, General Secretary Tilvin Silva said the JVP will not stop commemorating May Day on the 1st of May.
The General Secretary said there are obstructions to hold the May Day in Colombo on the 1st because the Vesak Poya Day falls on May Day this year.
He stated that however, the JVP will not stop commemorating May Day on the 1st of May claiming that the JVP will have their May Day rally in Jaffna on the 1st and thereafter have their May Day rally in Colombo on the 7th.
Tilva Silva noted that the rally in Colombo will be held at the BRC Grounds, while the march will commence from Campbell Grounds in Borella.
