Kalutara District UNP candidate Palitha Thewarapperuma has threatened to withdraw his candidature because of being constantly harassed by the police since the general election was declared.

He told the media today in Kalutara the police had removed a cutout displayed during the alms giving to mark his son’s death anniversary and had pushed his wife aside. Mr. Thewarapperuma said she was now undergoing treatment at the Nagoda general hospital.

He said he was concerned about the harassment faced by him and others in his family on political grounds and had decided to withdraw from politics and look after his wife and son. He said he believed the Samagi Jana Balvegaya (SJB) was behind these incidents and pointed out that his decision was not motivated by any displeasure with the UNP or its leadership.(Bandu Thambawita)

    You won't be missed and it seems you don't like tasting your own medicine.

    Good decision Palitha. You could go back to your previous business of producing Kasippu (moonshine) to the entire country and save tax payers money.

    Hardly a loss to Sri Lankan politics!

    Don't resign. You should be in the Parliament.

    T must be assuming that he cannot get the votes to win handsomely. Winning by less votes is loss of face so must be wanting to withdraw. Good decision
