A letter dated14.04.2021 circulates on social media which is claimed to be written by the president of the National Trade Union Center and a member of the political bureau of the JVP, Mr K. D. Lal Kantha, addressing the current President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa using a letterhead under the headline “Regarding the closure of taverns”. The letter mentions that all liquor shops in the country should be closed throughout the month of April due to the Sinhala and Tamil New Year which falls on 14.04.2021.
When inquired by the JVP Media Correspondent, Upul Ranjan about this news, he said that no such a letter was sent by K. D. Lal Kantha or was referred to the President using the official JVP letterhead. He also said that the letter exchanged on social media was completely untrue.
