UNP MP Hirunika Premachandra denied reports which said she was trying to forcibly enter the election office today and ultimately ended up among a large crowd of SLPP supporters.
“Some websites yesterday said I tried to enter the election office by force and the crowds started jeering at me when I was turned away. This was totally false as I was misdirected by senior police officers. My vehicle got stuck in the traffic and then I asked some police officers as to how I could get to the election office without a problem and they escorted my vehicle towards a large crowd of SLPP supporters who jeered at me and shouted at me in obscene language,” she said.
“I also blame my personal security officers as they too did not find out the correct route to avoid the crowd and traffic,” she added.
Ms. Premachandra said she would lodge a complaint with the IGP and the police headquarters and also would file a complaint with the elections office. (Yohan Perera)

Most of supporters who are with politicians during pre-election period are sadly 2 leg monkeys. This is the real curse in SL politics scene for decades. Classical show of 3rd world political spectrum.

Not understanding why she want to be our guiding principle as an MP when she clearly demonstrated that she is not capable to find her own path to enter an election commission office. In fact she started the blame game on her security officers. Pathetic.

If this is the sample behaviour of the supporters of the contestants prior to victory of their contestant one can foretell their behaviour if their contestant is victorious. This is our Sri Lanka!
