The UNP, in a letter to President Mahinda Rajapaksa, claimed that there are attempts by some groups to harass state employees who had supported General Sarath Fonseka at the recent Presidential elections.


UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayaka, in the letter addressed to the President, alleged that union activists and employees of the Transport Board, Ports Authority and several other government intuitions were told not to report to work tomorrow.

 
Stating that the employees of these institutions were harassed and even receiving death threats, he said that it was their constitutional right to hold political views and the right to vote to whomever they prefer.

He said harassing them was a threat to the democracy of the country that all citizens have enjoyed till now.
 

Hence he requested the President to personally look into the matter and take steps and provide security for these employees so they can report to work in a free and safe environment.

    There is no need of a GE at this moment as we all know the outcome. Why waste time and money?

    It is an anti-democracy act. Don’t you thin so!

    Sunday, 31 January 2010 12:36 PM

    This is what General Fonseka was talking about. Now it has turned to his side.

    Sunday, 31 January 2010 12:37 PM

    Another fabricated story from banrupted politicians.

    Sunday, 31 January 2010 01:06 PM

    Ajantha, by saying this you are in fact agreeing with Ranil's accusation.

    Sunday, 31 January 2010 01:08 PM

    Why don't you ask your king to order an open and impartial inquiry?

    Sunday, 31 January 2010 01:14 PM

    Why spending nation's money again for the GE when the outcome is obvious?

    Sunday, 31 January 2010 09:01 AM

    Allegations, alligations, alligatoions. That is all you can do now. Accept the defeat and get ready for a more devastating defeat at General Elections. Better ALLEGE that the GE results are already cooked up now!

    people who commented supporting this actions are like frogs in a wel. it knows only what it sees around n blind see to beyond that where the truth is. make some more fun & ull realize what a disaster u did by voting MR. remember Galileo was harassed just because he said the planet is not a plate. n nobody willing to borrow it. but who doesn't believe it now. but in this case we loose a precious time until time decides what is truth.....do not talk about what others did in past. I never voted to date to nay party but for SF coz he i an individual with a real vision n am sure he would've brought the all important decipline to this country no matter how immature he is in politics he is a true leader.
