UNF parliamentary candidate and leader of the Democratic People’s Front Mano Ganesan’s vehicle convoy came under attack this evening in Kadilhena, Nawalapitiya.


“We were traveling with police protection and that didn’t stop these attackers, we have identified them to be thugs of a former minister. I ask the President to intervene and discipline his politicians,” Ganesan said. His convoy of five vehicles was traveling with a police vehicle when it came under attack and thereafter his supporters were forced to fend for themselves and drive out the attackers, he said.


This comes a day after his supporters were attacked in Nawalapitiya. He said most of the plantation communities were fearful of casting their vote in this escalating climate of violence even during the Sinhala and Tamil New Year.

    if Mano has good understanding about violence against innocent leaders in Sri Lankan, he should leave the country to be safe.

    Despite causing the cancellation of the poll, this former Minister still wishes to continue his thuggery; nobody is there to put a stop to it. When is all this going to end?

    This is the fate of any future dissenter.

    Mano Ganeshan, you are correct. You should fight for your rights and those of all voters. The voters too, should teach a lesson to these thugs by kicking them out of parliament.
