Alleged supporters of former Minister of Resettlement and UPFA candidate Rishard Badiudeen are harassing private bus owners transporting Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) to the polling stations in the Vanni District, Advisor to the Elections Commissioner Bandula Kulathunga said.

“These Rishard Badiudeen supporters have even taken over some of these private buses we had provided for the IDP’s,” Kulathunga said. According to him this service was provided during the Presidential elections in January by the Elections Department and then too it was sabotaged.

    In the name of Allah, please do not commit an unpardonable sin.

    Rishard knows that this district will go for the opposition this time around as well. Hence, he is trying his best to secure a few votes at least by doing what he knows best.. Cheating.. Poor lad!!

    the same things happened in the pres polls as well, where these people were allowed to exercise franchise

    Now I feel; what LTTE did 20 years ago by chasing muslims from Jaffna is a corrrect thing.

    Thursday, 08 April 2010 08:31 AM

    RISHARD , is a bull in Chinashop.

    Thursday, 08 April 2010 03:15 AM

    well... what else do you expect from this tyrannical government. Let the voters still go and vote for them. We deserve what we get. People will never learn

    Thursday, 08 April 2010 03:34 AM

    This is free and fair elections Sri Lankan style!

    Thursday, 08 April 2010 03:35 AM

    This is the disgrace that sri lanka is popular for. Shameless uneducated people that will destroy this country. The funny part about all this is that they cannot blame it on the LTTE anymore

    Thursday, 08 April 2010 03:35 AM

    mark of a rigged election !!!!

    Thursday, 08 April 2010 03:39 AM

    This is what happens when fisher men get in to politics, everything should have status. Election Commissioner must take immediate action on this matter.

    Thursday, 08 April 2010 04:34 AM

    This is totally unacceptable situation what the GOSL try to do here is to marginalise these people again.

    Thursday, 08 April 2010 04:38 AM

    What does the Election commissioner & IGP say about this. The police are chasing monks who are peacefully demonstrating - but their inertia in this regard is despicable.

    Thursday, 08 April 2010 04:46 AM

    THIS IS NOT NEWS. IF RISCHARD B ALLOWED IDPs TO EXERCISE THEIR FRANCHISE, THEN IT IS NEWS !

    Thursday, 08 April 2010 04:54 AM

    Arrest Rishard without favoring.

    Thursday, 08 April 2010 05:07 AM

    DISGUSTING!! And that is to say the least.

    Thursday, 08 April 2010 05:46 AM

    Come on Badideen, be a good politician...
