Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has said whatever the political party heads the next Cabinet, the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) must represent it. 

The party therefore should be given at least a couple of ministries, he said. 

The Prime Minister points out that the JVP is of great discipline and its members are honest, however, the country has not taken the benefit of them yet. 

Wickremesinghe added that along with the aging process, just as them, they too are being led to age, without recognition, and their service must be taken for the country. 

The Prime Minister therefore emphasizes irrespective of party differences, the representation of the JVP in the next Cabinet is a must. 

He made these comments during a private meeting held with a group of businessmen.
