UNFF walk against PM continues

1 April 2018 12:52 pm - 17     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The walk organised by United National Freedom Front, that set off from Kandy on Saturday (31) demanding Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe to resign was resumed this morning from the Mawanella town.

The General Secretary of the party and former UNP Provincial Councilor Maithri Gunaratne, who was arrested by the Kadugannawa Police with two shotguns, at Pilimatalawa yesterday told the media that the flag posts, which they carried, had been seized on Saturday by the Police on the charge of possessing clubs.

However, he was released on bail by the Kandy Magistrate after he produced copies of the licences for the two shotguns.

He said that the UNFF would not be deterred by any action to suppress its campaign. (Saman Vijaya Hemmathagama)

    Maharaja Drama still continues after the 04th April NCM at Parliament. Killi should be taught a lesson not to be forgotten in his life.

    He probably wanted to put flowers in the barrels of the shotguns for the UNFF walk to demonstrate peace.

    What ever said and done - pray such a walk requires large financial "allocations". . to meet the cost of "wine" and :"song" - I have for the moment omitted the other ingredient which goes with :"wine" : and "song" - pr could it be during the rest period , Who is providing the money for these activities ?

    "However, he was released on bail by the Kandy Magistrate after he produced copies of the licences for the two shotguns."Why didn't he produce the ORIGINAL licences for the shot guns?
