Condemning the incidents at Aluthgama and Beruwala the United National Party (UNP) said this was something that had been instigated by the ruling United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) to get political mileage.

“The ruling party had already begun its campaign for the presidential election from Aluthgama,” UNP MP Mangala Samaraweera told a news briefing today.

He said the incidents had been triggered by a group backed by the government. “It is sad to see some people calling themselves monks instigating violence,” he said.

Referring to the UNHRC probe on alleged human rights violations, he said it was the Government that had given permission to the UNHRC in 2009 to carry out an investigation.

Mr. Samaraweera said even UPFA parliamentarian Rajiva Wijesinghe had mentioned it in one of his recent articles. (Yohan Perera)

    If we destroy both crocodiles (Ranil & Mangala) out from Politics, that will be the greatest achievement for the year 2014.

    Suddenly this guy doesn't seem so bad.
    If this was an election strategy, then the ruling party just lost my vote.

    We condemn Mangala & Ranil - this is the public verdict.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Tuesday, 17 June 2014 05:12 AM

    Mangala rather than talking bull shit, be honest. When you and your boss (Ranil) are going to quit your dirty politics.
