Apr 17, Nawalapitiya: The vehicle convoy of United National Front Kandy District candidate Mano Ganesan has been attacked in the Nawalapitiya area yesterday (16).
Ganesan told the media that he was travelling with police protection when his vehicle convoy had come under attack by supporters of a former government minister.
He said that no one had sustained any serious injuries during the attack.
However, Ganesan said that he wished to bring to the attention of the President the violence currently prevailing in the Nawalapitiya area, which is preparing for a re-poll on April 20.
The Elections Commissioner called for a re-poll in several polling divisions in Nawalapitiya due to alleged election malpractices that had taken place during the April 8 general election.
