Arman’s Movement Directs Harsh Criticism to Opposition Declaration, Rejects Exclusion of SRF
The Secretary General of the rebel Peoples Movement, Yasir Arman, has directed harsh criticism against the opposition’s programme known as “an alternative programme to the Salvation Government”, describing it as repetition of past experience and reinventing of crises. He described this thinking as an approach aiming at deciding the destiny of the nation in exclusion of others.
In statement signed by Yasir Arman, the SPLM indicated the scenarios on the eve of independence in 1955, October 1964 and April 1985, an implicit reference to the approach of the Umma Party and the DUP during that period. The statement also indicated the agreement concluded by the leaders of that period with the southerners, meaning the two major parties were responsible for all the repercussions.
The statement decried what it called as exclusion of youths, women and students as well as the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF) which the statement described as a major player in the opposition.
The movement called for more dealing between the current agreement, the Kauda Alliance and the agreement of the Revolutionary Front and support to what it called the popular work, and evidence of what observers indicated that the SRF’s sleeping cells might take advantage of what is happening to destabilize the country.
Despite his welcome reflected in the statement, Arman admitted that what is shared among all these elements is the need to overthrow the Government.
It warned against what it described as vacillation, a clear reference to stances of Imam Al-Sadiq Al-Mahdi in particular and the Umma and the DUP in general.
