Ravi trying to create terror- Thilanga

2 August 2015 04:41 am - 23     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


UPFA candidate Thilanga Sumathipala charged that Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake was trying to create terror in the streets of Colombo.

Speaking of the Bloemandhal shooting incident where Karunanayake’s supporters were shot at, Sumathipala alleged the incident was a repercussion of the UNP candidate’s political activities.  

Sumathipala also alleged that Karunanyake had exerted his influence to release the 21 individuals who had been arrested for the incident.  “According to election laws parties cannot organize election rallies and motorcades after handing in nominations. However, the finance minister flouted this law,” he said.  

The former parliamentarian said the underworld had been eradicated by the previous regime. “The activities of the UNP candidates are reducing the chance for a free and fair election and also ensuring the rise of the underworld,” Sumathipala said.
The Police Chief and the Elections Commissioner should intervene to ensure a free and fair election, he said.

    UNP talks against bookmakers in their election propaganda. Thilanga owns the bookie business. Any significance?

    This man comes from a gambler-pedigree.How can he talk as an angel. This type of politicians are very commonly seen on UPFA stages. What are we going to gain from this immoral politician. They deserve to be dumped into garbage.

    Even though it is something new to you, "Terror" is something we did experience in our day to day lives during the past when you all were rocking in your arm chairs with a glass of scotch in your hand.
