Badulla District UNP candidate Harin Fernando told UPFA candidate Dilan Perera that he himself would have to consume poison when the UPFA was defeated at the parliamentary election on August 18.

At a news conference held in response to the one held by the UPFA on Wednesday at which Mr. Perera had urged UNP leaders including the Prime Minister to drink poison, Mr. Fernando said UPFA members including Dilan Perera, Bandula Gunawardena and Udaya Gammanpila would have to drink poison in large quantities on August 18 when they realize that the UPFA has been defeated.

“Dilan organizes media briefings and displays bottles of poison. He himself had attempted to drink poison on three occasions. I have two gallons of Polidol here with me and I invite Mr. Perera to drink it on August 18,” Mr. Fernando said.

He rejected the allegations levelled against the Prime Minister, Minister Ravi Karunanayake, the Central Bank Governor and him by the UPFA and pointed out that there were several charges made against Dilan Perera by the Auditor General and the Foreign Employment Bureau.

    So stupid. If he tried to level the charges against the supporting to poison and issuing such poison without a legal reason could be more effective than this action.

    Entire parliament should drink poison except few good ones then we can get this country free from corruption and thuggery.

    No need to give them any more poison, they already have a lot of poison in their blood. When you look at those three faces you can see that.
