Government MP Nishantha Muthuhettigama, well known for controversy had allegedly stopped the election which was held to select the board of directors of the Ehala Lellwala Cooperative society in Badegama today.

UNP Organizer for the area, Ananda Lanaralle said the MP had allgedly stormed into the cooperative premises together with some local government members of UPFA and allegedly stopped the poll forcefully.

He alleged this has been done to stop a majority of UNP members being elected to the board. Mr. Lanaralle said the UNP would have easily managed to take control of the board as the party had 55 of the 85 members elected to the society on a previous occasion. The ruling UPFA had managed to get only 30 of its members elected to the society. He said the 7 member board including the chairman was elected from these 85 members of the society as per the procedure.

“ Mr. Mutuhettigama should have obtained an enjoining order from courts if he wanted to stop today’s election if he acted according to the law,” he added.

However sources close to Mr. Muttuhettigama said the cancellation of the polls was made by a deputy Commissioner of Cooperatives. Sources said the MP was not involved in any thing although he was present at the scene. (Yohan Perera)

    My butcher looks more refined and is more respectable than this piece of scum who is supposed to represent the people of our country. I cannot comprehend what type of people run our politics. Its easy to say that MR knows nothing about this. If it is so then he is not fit to be a president or leader of the party.

    Minister Sirisena , this is the time to prove how much you honest (Few days ago minister Sirisena requested IGP to produce list of SLFP members who has criminal charges). You dont have to wait IGP's list or IGP doesnt has to waste the papers , ink and his valuble time to prepare the useless document. If you read the past newspapers you can get the list.

    This is basic violation of human rights! Government should make a note of this, particularly at a time when wheels and tides are turning against Sri Lanka in human rights arena. Punish the idiot.
