An election rally of National Democratic Party presidential candidate Maithripala Sirisena held at Pelmadulla had been reportedly pelted with stones a short while ago injuring several people.


The Pelmadulla Hospital said three injured were admitted to the Pelmadulla hospital.
Mr. Sirisena said speaking to media after the incident he said that there were about 20,000 people at the rally and when he was addressing the people, stones were pelted from outside towards the stage.

He said the power of thuggery and state power could not oppress the real opinion of the people. 

The people who participated in the meeting said the stones started coming from a nearby building soon after Mr. Sirisena started to address the gathering.
The Security guards of Mr. Sirisena escorted him out from the location.

Some people at the rally started throwing stones back to the building from where the stones came.

    Peaceful political culture prevailed up to 1970 elections is growing election after election into goonda culture. Ordinary people fight among themselves for few thousand rupees or few petty jobs for few to enjoy luxury and exploit the riches of the country.

    Shameless President.He cannot put these type of incidents to any one as he is one of the candidate.He has broken all the election rules right now.The election commisioner should take serious steps to cancel his application immediately. But he is not clever to do the needful while having his powers.I see that he is favoring mr.But mr has only five days more to show his genocide to people.There after he will have to answer for all wrong what he did to people country communities in court. via DM Android App
