A group of United National Party (UNP) parliamentarians were reported to have been attacked by a mob when they visited the Sri Lanka Ports Authority (SLPA) Security Training Institute at Slave Island on a fact finding mission today.

 

UNP MPs who took part in the fact finding mission were Ravi Karunanayake, R. Yogarajan, Ajith P. Perera and Nalin Bandara Jayamaha.

 

Mr. Perera said two journalists were injured when stones were hurled at the MPs while they were leaving the premises.

 

We received information that the Training Institute was being used by the Government for the presidential election campaign. We have also been informed that television sets received from China are being used for the illegal campaigning,” he said.  

 

Mr. Perera said the MPs saw government employees and government property being used to make propaganda material for the election. (Lahiru Pothmulla and Sanath Desmond)

    All the MPs get duty free vehicles whether they are govt or opposition. Incident in this case is different as they were on a mission to check if a Govt institute was used for one particular presidential candidate.

    Does the institute have something to hide?

    Blessing Tuesday, 21 October 2014 02:18 PM

    So they want to hide some facts.

    They are paid for both assaulting and getting assaulted. Vehicles, though registered in their names, were imported duty free and payments are made in installments. Therefore the loss is to the people.
