Dilan blocks Wimal’s move

E-mail Print
Minister Dilan Perera who paid a surprise visit to the National Housing Development Authority Stores in Badulla yesterday stopped some 4,000 roofing sheets being loaded into a lorry to be taken to Trincomalee for distribution among voters.

He charged that the roofing sheets were to be distributed as an inducement to garner votes for a candidate of the National Freedom Front (NFF) headed by Housing Minister Wimal Weerwansa.

Minister Perera said the roofing sheets were to be distributed among the poor in the Badulla District.
The NHDA comes under Minister Wimal Weerawansa and the roofing sheets were to be taken to Trincomalee on the instructions of the NHDA Chairman.
Minister Perera said he had lodged a complaint to the Elections Commissioner as it was a violation of election law.

Minister Weerwansa had fielded candidates from the NFF for the Eastern Provincial Council election from the Trincomalee District because party did not receive any slots on the UPFA ticket.

Dude the problem he had was the votes were only going to the NFF, if it was going to the whole ruling party they he too would have also joined hands.

they all work for their own good.

In the first place why were they stacked up without being distributed for such a long time. Was Dilan waiting for an election in the Badulla District ?

isn't it funny some people always wants to see the negative even when something good happens. Will it hurt you to say this is a good deed first before you start your negative comment.

has any UNP politician done anything like this?

What are you trying to do? Make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. Or is it just another effort to garner brownie points from our regime?

This is the reason that he joined the government so that he can steal from the country. This is an act of "Patriotism" from the so called "patriot ". Because of people like wimal USA and other countries (even actors in India) are interfering in our affairs and dictating terms to us.

Thanks for the good work done Hon. Minister Dilan Perera

Well done. But, I wonder whether the Minister would have taken this action if it was to be distributed in favour of a UPFA candidate?

This one is obviously not an "international conspiracy" but a purely local one from one his own colleagues, against the super-patriot! One should definitely iinvestigate what other corrupt deals the so called patriot has been involved since joining the government to "serve" the people.

If Wimal, and Dilan were both on the same mission for mutual benefits, this could have happened without any interruption. Sri Lanka is at its heighest point in corruption, which runs from top to bottom.

The moral of the story is that you can rob, pilfer, misuse any government property as long as you wear the mask of a "patriot".
