Defeated UPFA candidate from the Galle District Geetha Kumarasingha has denied media reports which claimed that she will file legal action against her own party over her loss at the recent General Elections.
“It is a diabolical lie. I never decided to take anyone to court,” a furious Kumarasingha told Daily Mirror online.
Kumarasingha's comments came as a surprise as there were international media reports earlier in the week claiming that she will file legal action against her own party leaders as she was initially among the winning candidates but by the end of counting, she had lost the election.
Geetha Kumarasinghe was qouted as telling BBC Sandeshaya that she was initially among the winning candidates but by the end of counting, she has lost the election. But she refused to reveal the names of the culprits.
"It was all done by my own party people. But unfortunately it is difficult for me to reveal the names," BBC Sandeshaya qouted her as saying.
She was forced to send independent monitors to counting centres as she was not allowed to appoint her own polling agents, Ms. Kumarasinghe said. (JN)
